3:13 pm

3:14 pm
representative hakeem jeffries from new york, one of the house managers making a case on the second article of obstructing congress. we will head to break and bring you more news on the other side. >> weary of intruding on matters of impeachment. this of course leaves room for interbranch negotiations. but it does not allow the president to engage in blanket defiance. president trump's objections are not genuinely rooted in the law. they are not good-faith legal arguments. we know that because president trump said early on he would fight all subpoenas. we know that because he declared the impeachment inquiry illegitimate before he even adopted any procedures. we know that because he has denounced every single effort to investigate him as a witch hunt.
3:15 pm
and we know that because he never even claimed executive privilege. during the entire impeachment proceedings. president trump's first excuse for obstructing justice is a certain belief that he did nothing wrong. that is july 25th call with president zelensky was "perfect." in the october 8th letter sent by his counsel, president trump asserted the prerogative to defy all house subpoenas because he has declared his own innocence. as mr. su at president trump's behest, the president did nothing wrong. there is no basis for an impeachment inquiry. he had the white house counsel include this in a formal letter to the house. defying every single subpoena.
3:16 pm
we have shown in our discussion on the first article of impeachment committee's claims of innocence are baseless. they lack merit. we provide overwhelming eviden evidence.
3:17 pm
my hands are everything to me. but i was diagnosed with dupuytren's contracture. and it got to the point where things i took for granted got tougher to do. thought surgery was my only option. turns out i was wrong. so when a hand specialist told me about nonsurgical treatments, it was a total game changer. like you, my hands have a lot more to do. learn more at today.

3:21 pm
>> finally a part of the president of united states to step up and change and speak, watershed moment for the pro-life movement. >> a simple reason, to defend the right of a child born and unborn. >> in the middle of impeachment trial, a desperate attempt and firing up his radical base. these march for lifers his presence here today is genuine and his record proves it. >> he showing christians that he cares. fighting for babies lives. he's really making a difference whether people see it or not. >> after president trump's remarks on the national lawn, tens of thousands of people marched down the constitution avenue, on their way up to the steps of the supreme court. in just six weeks, the high court will hear its first major abortion case with the addition

changed. the first part will remain, but the las vegas convection of visitors authority says the "stays in vegas" part will be dropped. the new slogan will be revealed sunday. that's tonight live look outside the beltway from specia "special report." we'll be right back. we made usaa insurance for members like martin.

3:28 pm
floor. hakeem jeffries talking now. tomorrow, tonight correspondent chad program, course chad pergram with insight. what do we know about the president's lawyers contrasting the argument with those from the democrats? >> they'll try to refute some of the democratic points made the last three years here. going to be in session tomorrow starting 10:00 till about 1:00. an abbreviated session here with jay sekulow, one of the president's attorneys indicated that this was like a coming attraction, kind of like a movie trailer here. when you talk to some of the republican senators, they think democratic arguments the past couple of days have been repetitive. lindsey graham says he has seen the same piece of videotape seven times. here's were publicly louisiana senator john kenner. >> not a criticism. it's directed both sides. old expression.
3:29 pm
very few souls are saved after the first 20 minute of a sermon. >> there is a balancing act here. the attorneys may not want to go as long as the democrats but there is an audience of one in this, that president of the united states. also from the senate floor, best piece of news is the restock candy desk, this is a desk for senator pat toomey, republican of pennsylvania. her she sent 700 pounds of chocolate to the capital today during these lengthy debates to get a sugar fix. >> bret: where do we go with recalling witnesses? >> we won't get to the question until the end of next week but jay sekulow believe the democrats open the door. it'll come down to the math, 51 votes, any witness, the capital,
3:30 pm
bret, will absolutely explode. the democrats do not get some of the when it says, bolton, mike pompeo, or the acting chief of staff mick mulvaney. >> bret: impeachment trial continuing right now, house managers pressing their case for the second article, obstruction of justice. the defense begins tomorrow. we will learn to what degree the president's team will bring up information about former vice president joe biden's influence in the business dealings of his son hunter, a key figure in that case. i talked to an author about that investigation yesterday. more on that in a moment, but here is what republican leaders are saying on th the hill aboute possibilities. >> when it came to president trump's insistence that somebody look at what happened with the bidens and ukraine, i think he's right. i think somebody should.
3:31 pm
if you spend any time looking at the public record, this is not right. i say this is not right. and i say this about a good friend. >> bret: author of the new book, thanks for being here. congrats on the book. i read through it. you devote a good portion of this book, 70 pages or so, joe biden and his family. what do you say, is is pretty well exhausted, at least some of the family was part of the impeachment trial but saw it currently. >> i've been seeing this for a long time, republicans and democrats but i never seen democrats with five members, it's important to understand that. >> people follow dealings, but you talk about other members of the family.
3:32 pm
>> a business effectively launched in the oval office. joe biden give private briefings to investors and partners in this company. the son-in-law was one of the principles involved, talking about a few of his brothers that had deals, one involving federal contracts in the united states for a construction company. he had no background in construction. another brother doing deals overseas. it's a systematic pattern of corruption and i think people need to be aware of it. >> bret: when the biden people or any supporters hear this, they say, there is no specific wrongdoing by joe biden. what do you say? >> it may not be illegal, but it certainly corrupt. the point is joe biden granted access and by the nature of his power created opportunities. if you look at the hunter biden case in particular, the timing here is key. could've been hired by the ukrainians any time, he was hired in the spring of 2014.
3:33 pm
february of 2014, putin moves into crimea, barack obama appoints joe biden as point person in your. in 2-3 weeks, hunter biden has been identified by the ukrainians and put to the payroll of the tune of about a million dollars per year. joe biden could have said as politicians do in washington, d.c., to his family, look, i don't want you doing these kind of deals. he's obviously never said that because they still have access in the deal is taking place. >> bret: kate bedingfield with the biden campaign as you wrote this op-ed to "the new york times" came out and said in her words, malicious claims about the biden family. the bush back, the relatives are hardly the first people to use this name to bolster their livelihoods, i guess, and while it's swampy, what do you take away from it and is it a problem right now for joe biden the candidate. >> a great question. i think it's one of those things
3:34 pm
that have become acceptable in washington, d.c., but outside the beltway people are still very frustrated and angered about it. i do not think this is a case of having a name that's helping you. everybody knows that if your last name is buscher biden, you'll have certain inherent advantages. what we are talking about our political families that are making money once they achieve political power. that's the key difference. if you achieve political power and your family becomes wealthy because of your public service, i think people at least out of washington, d.c., are still outraged by that and should be. >> bret: heard your stuff for years and notice you go down into the weeds, get the actual documents. it's not, like, made up stuff or a supposition, but some of your critics say it's opposition research. how do you respond to that? >> is not opposition research. we focus on one thing: follow the money. this is not about personal problems or substance abuse, this is about follow the money.
3:35 pm
if you look at my track record, i've gone after republicans and democrats. the reason i focus in this book, i talk about it, on these progressives, i think we have in american media today what i call the trump vortex. it sucks in everything and there have been massive coverage of trump and what are seen as scandals or perceived as scandals. that's a good thing for the problem is some of the reporting is good, some of the reporting is bad, but it blocks out everything. my point is trump needs to be scrutinized, but so to those people who are aspiring to his office that have other positions of responsibility. >> bret: they are eight politicians, all democrats obviously. you spend a lot of time on the bidens. do you think that's the most egregious of the things you've found? >> i think it's hard to say. it's certainly the most systematic because joe biden has been there the longest. i think there are a lot of things about elizabeth warren that was troubling, how she was a government consulted in the
3:36 pm
1990s rewriting bankruptcy laws and in a typical washington move, she took that position and cashed in. basically went to corporations and said, i will consult for you and advise you in how to use the law that i wrote to your maximum advantage. there were others. >> bret: it's an interesting read. the book is "profiles in corruption." thanks for the time. as we head to break, resented if hakeem jeffries wrapping up the case before dinner break on the senate floor. you can watch all of this live nonstop nonstop streaming on we will head to break. the panel after this. >> could've cross-examined the intel committees' counsel during his presentation of evidence before the house judiciary committee. that would've function. the equivalent opportunity of affording president clinton to have his counsel cross-examined kenneth starr.
3:37 pm
which he did at length. president trump must provide a level of transparency in the opportunity to produce pay consistent with the highest standards of due process given to other presidents who found themselves in the midst of an impeachment inquiry. the president, and am winding down, the president's next procedural complaint is that it was unconstitutional to exclude agency counsel from participating in congressional depositions. the basis for the rule, excluding... there's brushing and there's oral-b power brushing. oral-b just cleans better. it's the one inspired by dentists... with the round brush head.
3:38 pm
oral-b's gentle rounded brush head removes more plaque along the gumline... for cleaner teeth and healthier gums. oral-b. brush like a pro.
3:39 pm
3:40 pm
you get the freedom of what a 7-day return policy. this isn't some dealership test drive around the block. it's better. this is seven days to put your carvana car to the test and see if it fits your life. load it up with a week's worth of groceries. take the kiddos out for ice cream. check that it has enough wiggle room in your garage. you get the time to make sure you love it. and on the 6th day, we'll reach out and make sure everything's amazing. if so... excellent. if not, swap it out for another or return it for a refund. it's that simple. because at carvana, your car happiness is what makes us happy. my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes
3:41 pm
or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity. >> president trump tried to cheat. he got caught. and then he worked hard to cover it up. >> i've heard nothing in the
3:42 pm
last four days that has altered my opinion an iota. >> president trump's willingness to entangle our foreign allies in a corrupt political air and also undermined the credit abilities of americans for the rule of law and fight corruption abroad. >> they are coming after me because i'm fighting for you and we are fighting for those who have no voice. >> bret: the trial continuing, president trump at the march for life today, first person to appear in person. new polls out, "the washington post" abc poll should president trump be removed from office, the breakdown, should not. president rob's approval hovering around where it was october in 2018, but all of them also the same, higher on the president's handling on the
3:43 pm
economy, the latest poll from "washington post" abc, approve, disapprove mollie hemingway, senior editor at the federalist, and michael kraut, "new york times." where are we on impeachment, where is it sinking in? we've been talking about this book on book on witnesses which is likely going to come next week after the white house makes its case. >> the big three takeaways are, one, the facts arraigned by the house democrats and managers i think are compelling and overwhelming. i think the president is guilty of doing what he's accused of doing. i think it's deeply troubling for the second one is the deflection used by senate republicans. there is really much new here, rests uncomfortably alongside their pure determination not to allow new evidence in. it seems to be a fair amount of tension to me. third, house democrats even with a very good hand, i think based
3:44 pm
on facts and evidence, have played this pretty poorly. you have moments. adam schiff's closing yesterday was pretty effective. but in many other ways, they seem to be playing to the crowd. the interested more in politics in just a fact recitation of what happen. you saw that in the decision not to have justin amash appear as one of the house managers, which i think would've made -- >> bret: former republican, now independent. >> it would've helped them make a case if they were actually making a case to potentially wobbly senate republicans. they seem to not be doing that. >> bret: mollie? you have a different take. >> when you thing about what's going on here, the president is going to impeachment. his number should be horrible. instead they are stronger than they been in a long time. clearly people have heard this case from a democrats over and over and over. they've heard what the witnesses
3:45 pm
have had to say. many people who aren't opposed to president trump just don't find it compelling at all. this was supposed to be a big moment for democrats, a way to tarnish president trump's image. instead he's coming up very strong and next week there will be an acquittal likely or soon thereafter. where are democrats going to be? >> bret: have they moved to those moderate republicans? we talk about the moderate republicans. there are the moderate democrats -- the moderate republicans have been moved in this testimony? >> we haven't seen that tipping point critical moment yet. i think an interesting thing about this, it does seem that public opinion is largely baked in on this and we are regurgitating things that people are pretty familiar with but i do think there were quite a few leaders feel like what they can do here is put pressure on those moderates and to a large degree, what this is about is an internal senate exercise making
3:46 pm
those moderates squirm and set them up to make them potentially more vulnerable in 2020. i think that's something that even democrats who are resigned to the likelihood that there is not going to be a conviction for the president are hoping at something they can get out of this process which a lot of people are thinking, why are we sitting through hours and hours of this, is to try to make those moderates uncomfortable, maybe that a vote that causes the president pain, and if not make them pay for it in the next election. >> bret: just got the dinner break, which is a welcome thing for the senators i've talked to getting off that floor after hours and hours. the president mean time at the life today a different pitch there. >> all of us here today understand an eternal truth, every child is a sacred and precious gift from god. together, we must protect, cherish, and defend the dignity
3:47 pm
and sink of the of life. >> sanctity >> bret: gallup has seen a change of how the issue polls. not only abortion being legal, but also the question, are you pro-life or pro-choice? it kind of has shifted in recent years. as of late, especially. politically, obviously a good thing for the president. what about that moment? >> the polling has shifted in part because the signs of life has made it clear what actually happens in the case of abortion. i think the president was smart to go to the rally. i think it was smart to speak. i think his remarks where appropriate. i think it'll do him a lot of good with his base. people who are staunchly pro-life, single-issue voters pro-life very much appreciate the president came and spoke to them for the first time. >> bret: warren williams and said it loss also play or the
3:48 pm
other side which is true in any of these culture issues. >> this is a contentious issue but pro-lifers are very motivated. starting to think where they were four years ago as donald trump on the way to the top of the republican party thinking there's no way this guy is good for us. they make demands of him, he adds to the demands they placed on him, and as president he's been the most pro-life president we have ever had. >> bret: as far as judges, justices, as far as policy. i want to turn to the 2020 race. there are no pro-life candidates on the 2020 democratic side, but if you look at the polls, you've got the biden national phenomena is kind of shrinking. iowa. it seems like sanders is still surge -- rising. >> is very interesting because we went to this. lack of time where it look like elizabeth warren was going to be
3:49 pm
the alternative to biden for those pretty serious liberal, some might say leftist activists for whom socialism is not a dirty word. remember, bernie sanders had a heart attack? it seemed like warren was going to take his voters and pull away and just couldn't quite seal the deal and sanders is back, warren is in trouble, and sanders seems to have momentum at the right time. >> bret: can we do a lightning winners and losers? >> my winners are a dairy industry, free ads because senators can only drink water and milk on the senate floor. milk is your only option for my loser is the white house press office for approving credentials for "true news," and anti-semitic network who called the impeachment a jew coup.
3:50 pm
