Automatic TRANSCRIPT

In the children saying that children have been telling them please save us from Donald Trump hi congressman Jeffrey he said moments ago the American people should decide the outcome of the election and that's why we're impeaching Donald Trump not joking he actually said something that stupid take a listen is it okay for the president to solicit foreign interference in the twenty twenty election or not who should decide the outcome of elections is it the Russians the Chinese the Ukrainians all the American people it should be the American people and that's why we're here at this moment and so let's have a serious discussion about it stop attacking Americans who refused to bend the knee this president the gentleman with the I. yeah I mean I just I just got to say so it's okay for the present so supporter feared she says and then he says the American people should decide the outcome the election and that's why we're impeaching Donald Trump I thought we did decide the election I thought that's what we did and then represented dean she now claims that high school students are telling her thank you thank you for protecting them by impeaching Donald Trump so that's why we're now impeaching the president last night as we left here I wanted to just tell you this I went outside and there was a team of about twelve high school students from Ohio with their teacher and they said would you mind stopping for medical we just talk to you for a minute it was so interesting to watch and to listen and hear what was going on at this important historic time we loved learning about our constitution and how much you price this constitution thank you for protecting it for us and you know what they said to me we didn't understand this before but you I do now it's your job it is the houses job to determine what evidence comes in we do not need permission from the president we do not need permission from the courts in fact we have an obligation to do our job under this simple smart document under this simple smart document she holds up the constitution but she says it's the kids now we're we're impeaching the president for the kids there was also something else that happened you're sure jell slimy the media is during a recess a member of the media from Reuters a reputable organization I got busted taking pictures of the members of Congress is notes without their knowledge it represented gates said I'm not taking this crap anymore any little mock before I make my point during the break a Reuters photographer Josh Roberts approach the dice and took pictures of the notes of the dozens of several of my democratic colleagues we noticed that announced it to staff in that reporter at that photographers been removed so I would just say no member Republican or Democrat I should be subject to that we ought to have the opportunity to take on those participating available for discussion I love by the way that the Republicans again no member Republican or Democrat should be subjected to that and that member of the media out from Reuters has been kicked out of the room this is of course one of the members and swap it took a Republican there to say it not a Democrat it it that's how they do it now there's something else that happened to the today I and that is represented now they are impeachment he said what is central here is that we are is we do we want a dictator this is a new charge against Donald Trump there now calling him and referring to him as a dictator in their opening statement to the American people myself for five minutes straight laced with I just want to say the central issue of this impeachment is the corruption of our institutions that safeguard democracy by this president those are two basic protections we have for our democracy free and fair elections and the president in article one is charged with trying to subvert the free and fair elections by extorting a foreign power into interfering in that Alexis to give him help in his campaign we cannot tolerate a president subverting the fairness and integrity of our elections the second major safeguard of our liberties designed by the framers of the constitution is the separation of powers the power is not United in one dictator but is spread out through the executive the prep represented by the president the Congress and the judiciary so there it is Democrats are now I'll try to tell the American people that we have a dictator and that's why they're trying to Pete center because America should have never had a dictator now there was one part today that was amazing and I'm just trying to give you the highlights and that that is when hunter Biden and the truth about hunter Biden and his history of corruption came out representative gates made it very clear odd that he was willing to use this impeachment hearing to expose what really we should all be talking about and the key issue of corruption and he did an excellent job of that I'd take a listen to what he had to say central element of the Democrats case on abuse of power is that the bidens did nothing wrong it can only be an abuse of power and not a correct use of power if the president was pursuing something under which there was no reasonable basis to ask a question about hunter Biden and Bristol hunter Biden charisma what's an interesting story and I think just about every American knows there's something up with that eighty six thousand dollars a month no experience working for some foreign government well your dad's the vice president added states is there anyone who believes this is okay I know we got a few my Democrat colleagues maybe run for president might run for president one day would you let your vice president have their son or daughter family member out moonlighting for some foreign company maybe I'll use language familiar to the former vice president come on man this looks dirty is it is hunter Biden was making more than five times more than a board member for Exxon Mobil I've heard of that company it's all one to read up on how to buy learn a little more about my found this very extensive profile in The New Yorker and I here's here's what it says hunter said that at that point he had not slept for several days driving east on interstate ten just be on palm springs he lost control of his car which jumped the median and skidded to a stop on the shoulder of the westbound side he called hurts which came to collect the damaged car and gave him a second rental the hertz rental officer told me he found a crack pipe in the car and on one of the consoles a line of white powder residue beau Biden's Attorney General badges on the dashboard hertz called the Prescott police department and officers filed a narcotics offense report listing items seized on the card including a past plastic bag containing white powdery substance a secret service business card credit cards and hunter Biden's driver's license that is what we would call evidence and I don't want to make light of anybody's substance abuse issues I know presidents working real hard to solve those throughout the country but it's a little hard to believe the charisma hired hunter Biden to resolve their international disputes when he could not resolve his own dispute with hertz rental car over leaving leaving cocaine into crack pipe in the dark it continues hunter stayed in Los Angeles for about a week he said that he needed to get away and forget soon after his arrival in LA he said he asked a homeless man in person you can square where he could buy crack under said that the man took him to a nearby homeless encampment where a narrow passageway between tense someone put a gun to his head before realizing that he was the buyer you refer he returned to buy more crack a few times that week again not saying you're not casting any judgment on any challenges someone goes through their personal life but it is just hard to believe that this was the guy wandering through homeless encampments five crack it was worth eighty six thousand dollars a month it's a very small holding and that might be one of the reasons why what ABC asked hunter Biden Hey you think you would have gotten this job in the absence of your dad being the vice president well he said probably not to the record evidence and I look to the testimony of Mr can't Mister Kent was one of the witnesses they called on the first day he said the reason it was so dirty that our own embassy had to pull out of a joint sponsorship with them when a bass your bondage was being prepped for her Senate confirmation the Obama administration was so worried about the corruption around to respond hunter Biden that they held special prep moments to try to get ready for the inevitable questions about this obvious corruption that the president asked about Mr can't again one other witnesses from the first day also gave testimony that the re small had stood at the head of breeze might still want twenty three million dollars in U. in the US and the UK and that he paid a bribe to get off the hook so again it's not as if Marie CMOS pulling out new plays their playbook as to do dirty stuff and then go and pay bribes and hire the people necessary to make those problems go away this is why the minority hearing issue is so important by the way you you wonder why Republicans are so angry that we didn't have a hearing put on our own witnesses in own evidence and you may wonder why what they feel so good about their case why did they block our ability to put in evidence it's because we have the ability to show that the response is corrupt we have the ability to show that hunter Biden is corrupt and not totally actual page the quote the president because there is no way in the United States of America that honestly pursuing actual corruption is an impeachable offense that my friends was Democrat represented not gates exposing hunter Biden stark history of corruption we'll have more on that coming up on the Ben Ferguson show much more the highlights they the Democrats in the house Judiciary are debating impeachment articles before the vote
