Pelosi offers compromise for Dems gunning to impeach Trump


DISCOURSE IN THIS COUNTRY AS A RESULT OF WHAT THEY DID.>>Melissa: KNEW DETAILS FROM NICK’S ORDINARY CONFERENCE CALL WITH DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE CHAIR, SPEAKER PELOSI URGING FELLOW DEMOCRATS TO FOCUS ON INVESTIGATIONS RATHER THAN IMPEACHMENT IN THE WAKE OF THE SPECIAL COUNSEL REPORT ON RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION. SPEAKER PELOSI REPORTEDLY TELLING A “THIS IS NOT ABOUT DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS, IT’S ABOUT SAVING OUR DEMOCRACY. WE DON’T HAVE TO GO TO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TO GET THE FACTS.” THEY TELL FOX NEWS THAT MAXINE WATERS SPOKE UP SAYING SHE STILL SUPPORTS IMPEACHMENT BUT WON’T SEEK TO INFLUENCE ANYONE ELSE ON EDGE. THE DEMOCRATIC 2020 CONTENDERS LIKE SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS SEE NO NEED FOR CAUTION, THOUGH. WATCH.>>I BELIEVED CONGRESS SHOULD TAKE THE STEPS TOWARD IMPEACHMENT. BUT I’M ALSO A REALIST. REPUBLICANS HOLD A MAJORITY. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THEY WILL BE ON THE FACTS INSTEAD OF ON PARTISAN ADHERENCE TO BEING PROTECTIVE OF THIS PRESIDENT. AND THAT IS WHAT CONCERNS ME AND WHAT WILL BE THE EVENTUAL OUTCOME. SO WE HAVE TO BE REALISTIC ABOUT WHAT MIGHT BE THE END RESULT, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THE PROCESS SHOULD NOT TAKE HOLD.>>Melissa: REPUBLICAN MIKE TURNER SITS ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE SAYS THERE IS PLENTY OF WORK THAT CONGRESS NEEDS TO DO INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON INVESTIGATIONS, AND HE FELT SPEAKER PELOSI FORGIVING ENERGY TO A MOVEMENT TO INVESTIGATE THE PRESIDENT.>>I THINK THERE’S A LOT OF DISSENSION IN THE PARTY. AT THE SAME TIME, SHE IS GIVING TREMENDOUS ENCOURAGEMENT TO THIS INVESTIGATION AD NAUSEAM. THEY SHOULD BE WORKING ON ISSUES SUCH AS RUSSIA AND CHINA, NORTH KOREA AND IRAN. BUT SHE HAS ENCOURAGED ADAM SCHIFF AND HIS MINIONS TO CONTINUE THEIR PURSUIT OF DONALD TRUMP AS IF HE’S THE MOST SNAGGED A THREAT TO OUR SECURITY INSTEAD OF OUR FOES. IT’S CIRCUMVENTING ROOM WERE GOING TO BE DONE.>>Melissa: REPORTING OF THE WHITE HOUSE BELIEVES THERE IS NO CHANCE THAT PROCEEDINGS WILL BEGIN, AND EVEN IF IT DID, IT WOULD BE A GIFT FOR THE PRESIDENT. ONE ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL TELLING THE PUBLICATION, “THE WHITE HOUSE IS SO UNCONCERNED THAT IT DOESN’T CURRENTLY HAVE A STRATEGY IN PLACE FOR RESPONDING TO IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS.”>>Charlie: DO YOU BELIEVE THERE IS NO PLAN BECAUSE THEY DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN? DO YOU THINK IT’S SMART?>>Charlie: I BELIEVE THERE IS SOME PLAN. IF THE DEMOCRATS REALLY WANT TO GO FORWARD WITH THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT — AND LET’S JUST SAY IN A HYPOTHETICAL WORLD THAT IT PASSES. IT WON’T GO TO THE CENTER. EVERYONE KNOWS THERE’S HAVE ONLY BEEN TO PRESIDENTS IMPEACHMENT ONLY A FEW REMOVED. ANOTHER LETTER I WORD — INDEPENDENCE. UNEMPLOYMENT GOING DOWN, WHICH IS GOING UP, PIECE HAPPENING ACROSS THE WORLD. THEY WANT TO SEE THAT PRESIDENT IN PHP ARE PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE WANT TO SEE UNITY, BIPARTISAN REFORM, AND IF THE DEMOCRATS USE THEIR ENERGY ON THAT, THEY WILL LOSE INDEPENDENTS IN 2020.>>Melissa: THERE IS SOMEONE FOCUS ON IMPEACHMENT AND WANTS IT, AND THAT IS TOM STEYER, WHO TOOK OUT AN AD. SAYING, “IT’S ALL HERE, TEN DETAILED ACTS OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.” THE ROBERT MUELLER REPORT LAYS OUT IMPEACHMENT FOR THE PRESIDENT.” IT GOES ON TO SAY, “CONGRESS, DO YOUR JOB. I’M TOM STEYER.” BUT THAT MESSAGE OUT. OBVIOUSLY VERY INFLUENTIAL IN THE PARTY. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?>>Leslie: I INTERVIEWED TOM STEYER AND ASKED HIM POINT BLAN BLANK, BECAUSE TO KAMALA HARRIS’ POINT, THERE ARE REALITIES. IF IT PASSES THE HOUSE, YOU HAVE A DIVISION AMONG THE MOST CENTRIST LIKE — HE OF THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN THE SENATE AND WE HAVE HISTORY T THE SENATE AND WE HAVE HISTORY O LOOK TO. WHAT HAPPENS THERE REPUBLICANS WOULD BUILD PRESIDENT DOMINIC CLINTON WHAT DOMINIC WAS IMPEACHED? NEWT GINGRICH — WHAT HE SAID IS, AND SOME PEOPLE IN CONGRESS FEEL THIS WAY, MAYBE ON THE FENCE AS TO WHETHER THEY WILL BE ON AOC’S SIDE OR PELOSI’S SIDE OF HIS ARGUMENT WHICH IS THAT PROGRESS HAS A RESPONSIBLE LEAD TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, TO CONSTITUTION, TO DO THE INVESTIGATION. EVEN IF IT WON’T PASS IN THE SENATE, BRING THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BECAUSE OF THEIR POSITION. NOT JUST THEIR POSITION, THEIR CONGRESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO HAVE OVERSIGHT OVER THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. SPECIFICALLY THE PRESIDENT. AND HE LOOKED TO TWO ISSUES — OBSTRUCTION AND WITNESS TAMPERING.>>Katie: I THINK IT’S AMAZING THAT WE ARE CALLING NANCY PELOSI A MODERATE DEMOCRAT NOW. SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN AN EXTREMIST. WE JUST HAVE MORE EXTREMISTS IN THE PARTY.>>Leslie: SHE IS PRETTY MODERATE.>>Katie: WE’VE GONE FROM BOB MUELLER AS THE END ALL BE ALL, WE TRUST WHAT HE’S GOING TO SAY, WE WILL PROTECT HIM, BLODGETT WE WANTED TO INTRODUCE LEGISLATION TO PROTECT THEM. MULTIPLE TIMES THEY WOULDN’T VOTE ON IT. AND HERE WE ARE, WITHOUT ANY KIND OF COLLUSION AND DEMOCRATS WANT TO FOCUS ON AND OBSTRUCTION KIND OF YOU THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS DOESN’T PLAY OUT. MY QUESTION FOR DEMOCRATS — YOU SUBPOENAED DOWN AGAIN YESTERDAY TO COME IN FRONT OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, OR THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE. OUT OF THE 30 HOURS OF WHAT HE TESTIFIED IN FRONT OF MUELLER ABOUT — WHICH IS IN THE REPORT — WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO FIND BASED ON THE RESOURCES THAT YOU HAVE AS INVESTIGATORS THAT BOB MUELLER DIDN’T FIND? THE ANSWER IS NOTHING. DEMOCRATS HAVE THE BENEFIT OF TALKING ABOUT A PATIENT HAS A TALKING POINT FOR POLITICAL REASONS, AND ACTUALLY THE BENEFIT OF INTRODUCING ARTICLES AND VOTING ON IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT’S NOT GOING TO GO ANYWHERE. SO THEY WILL SAY TO THEIR BASE, “WE VOTED ON IMPEACHMENT, WE TRIED,” AND THE REPUBLICANS DIDN’T WANT TO HOLD THE ADMINISTRATION ACCOUNTABLE. WHEN IT COMES TO HOW WE FEEL BY THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION, AT THIS POINT MOST PEOPLE THINK IT WAS A WITCH HUNT AND HIS CREDIBILITY WENT DOWN BY THE END OF THE INVESTIGATION. PEOPLE JUST WANT TO MOVE ON. IT’S A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD BUT I THINK THE WHITE HOUSE IS MORE PREPARED THAN THEY ARE LETTING ON FOR THE INVESTIGATION.>>Jillian: AND TO YOUR POINT ABOUT IT BEING A TALKING POINT, FOR SOMEONE LIKE KAMALA HARRIS — WHO KNOWS THAT HER BASE LOVES THE IMPEACHMENT TALK — THEY WILL KEEP TALKING ABOUT IT. FOR THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATS, I FEEL LIKE WE KNOW THAT THERE IS NO COLLUSION. SO WE KNEW PEOPLE WOULD HANG ONTO SOMETHING. YOU KNEW THEY WOULD STILL POUNDING THE PAVEMENT ABOUT SOMETHING. THAT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS.>>Melissa: FOR KAMALA HARRIS –>>Jillian: THE DEMOCRATIC BASE.>>Melissa: HER AREA OF THE COUNTRY, WHAT SHE REPRESENTS NOW, LOVES IMPEACHMENT. BUT IF SHE’S GOING FOR A BROADER VOTE AND SHE’S TRYING TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT, DOES IT STILL MAKES SENSE FOR HER, CHARLIE?>>Charlie: IN MANHATTAN AND MALIBU, IMPEACHMENT IS VERY POPULAR.>>Leslie: THERE’S A FEW OTHER CITIES.>>Charlie: IN MANHATTAN, KANSAS, IT’S NOT AS POPULAR. ALL KIDDING ASIDE, MIDDLE AMERICA IS STARTING TO SEE THE REVITALIZATION THAT THEY’VE BEEN PROMISED FOR DECADES. WHICH IS GOING UP, MANY FRACTURING COMING BACK, AND IMPLEMENT AT RECORD LOW LEVELS. JUST TODAY, THEY SAID THERE’S THE LOW EVER BLACK AND HISPANIC ON EMPLOYMENT. THE RADICAL LEFT, THEY ARE DEMANDING REVENGE. THEY HAVE NOT GOTTEN OVER THE FACT THAT THEY LOSS IN 2016. THIS IS THEIR WAY TO TRY AND GET BACK AT IT. AT THIS POINT I AGREE — CONGRESS DOES HAVE AN OVERSIGHT CAPACITY AND AUTHORITY, 100%. BUT THEY ALSO DELEGATED THAT TO ROBERT MUELLER. WE WERE TOLD FOR TWO YEARS, “GIVE HIM SPACE, GIVE HIM YEARS, GIVEN $30 MILLION.” NOW THE REPORT COMES OUT AND THEY HAVE NO COLLUSION.>>Katie: THEY SAID THEY WEREN’T INTERESTED IN give $30 million.” BECAUSE MUELLER WAS PAID THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID.>>Charlie: “LET MUELLER DO IT.” I’LL I’M CONFUSED, WILL THEY IMPEACH THEM FOR? BECAUSE THEY ARE UPSET THAT THEY LOST?>>Melissa: TEN ARTICLES OF OBSTRUCTION.>>Charlie: IF THEY HAD A CASE OF OBSTRUCTION, HE WOULD HAVE REFERRED THAT.>>Leslie: THE DIFFERENCE HERE IS THAT SEPARATING CRIMINAL, WHICH WAS HIS RESPONSE BUILDING, POLITICAL, WHICH IS ENOUGH AGO, WHICH IS CONGRESSIONAL RESPONSIBLY.>>Charlie: HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS. IN THE CONSTITUTION IS AS HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS. SO WHAT CRIME HAVE BEEN CUSTOM WORK>>Leslie: I KNOW IT SAYS IN THE CONSTITUTION. THE INTERPRETATION OF THE CONSTITUTION — AND EVEN FORMER PRESIDENT GERALD FORD SAID IT — “IMPEACHMENT IS WHATEVER THE HOUSE MAJORITY DEEMS IT TO BE AT THE TIME.”>>Charlie: HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS IS IN THE ACTUAL
