"The president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's also admitted he asked Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and while the United States is putting pressure on the president to do this corrupt thing for president trump what hangs in the balance hundreds of millions of dollars for military aid which which Ukrainians need to keep Russians at bay two hundred and fifty million dollars of which they expected the rest an additional one hundred and forty million dollars being kind of cherry on top who is not really really well explained on Wednesday all this will be before or is president trump will be meeting with the man that he apparently pressured in that abuse of power which is why we can expect back trump with the Ukrainian president right there beside him to just say in front of the cameras. You should really investigate Joe Biden kind of like he did in front of the cameras the last time around Russia. If you're listening I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing testify before Congress that his report did not exonerate the president trump claimed it did even said it was a great day for me and the very next day in the midst of a perception that maybe just gotten away with the trump gets on the phone with Ukraine's president and apparently repeatedly pressing move estimate Joe Biden solve the problem for Democrats is how you bind the behavior of this guy who seems utterly really confident that he can get away with anything trump's doing this kind of thing now trying to uncover dirt or manufactured on a political opponent with the election year more than a year away. What's what's he going to be willing to do. In September two thousand twenty WanNa bring a Michelle Goldberg calmness in your time was a new piece out today titled Nancy Pelosi's failure launch from a congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman whose his book is called the case for impeaching trump political analyst David Jolly for Republican Congressman from Florida who has since left the party Michaud. This feels is qualitatively different than things have come before. Why what do you think well I think because you know even people who have been very resistant to impeachment so far are starting link to find Nancy Pelosi position untenable so until now there's been a couple of different lines from people who want to avoid impeachment. They've either said that that we have to protect the frontline members right that this isn't that without the making them pay this but will endanger them that changes when those frontline members themselves start coming out for impeachment and then there's been this argument that you'll sometimes hear from. Pelosi allies that this has to be bipartisan and I think that that has created such anger are among the grassroots base that built the blue wave right that they put Pelosi in power and now she's basically giving a criminal syndicate veto oh power over whether it's boss gets indicted although it is the case to speak to your experience right I mean bipartisanship was a real accession of the judiciary. Committee is he's a real concern and it wasn't a bipartisan vote coming out of the committee and the fact that was bipartisan coming out of committee really did mean something yes but it didn't start out being bipartisan right because there were no republicans when we started who announced for impeachment. Howard Baker wasn't for impeachment or didn't think Nixon was involved in the in the cover up until the Senate Watergate hearings took place the difference today was the Democrats or some of the Democrats is that they think that they can't go forward award until everything is done in other words. They had to have the end of the story before they get started. They don't believe in a process that will persuade the Democrats Democrats that will persuade some Republicans and that will persuade the American people but I believe that can be done has to be done years persuasion possible honestly. I'm how watching the reaction to this and I'm thinking to myself like no. This seems so clear and I'm watching people spend it away people that I think are you know rather smart sophisticated folks in apart because Donald Trump has had basically licensed to completely control the narrative for the past four or five days because we have not seen that moment where democratic leadership you know I suggested today hold the prime time press conference and explain why this is an impeachable moment but also let's be honest Democrats. You are never going to convince Republicans to vote to impeach Donald Trump. That's not happening. You have to choose your course based on your own convictions the other sort of argue on the other side of this because I think it's worth arguing it out. You know we heard Al Green and we heard other people say look. It's not about politics about principle and I I respect that even Carson Castro said that but it also Baltics everything but also the politics right but the idea that like if you interviewed those forty frontline members or if you interview the Thirteen Democrats who are in if I'm not mistaken McCain Romney trump seats okay so those are real. Republican seats they don't want to vote on impeachment and I think it's worth noting that maybe they're correct about their own political fortunes and that making them do so would you'd tangibly materially harm the chances of the Democrats retaining so first of all some of them are GonNa have to vote on impeachment right. I mean Democrats can get to a majority making all of those. Those members take that vote. Some of them have said that they want to vote for impeachment because they have the same feeling I think about the ethical obligation of this moment in American history but I also think that the idea that this is necessarily agree with you know their seats certainly better than pundit bloviating bloviating television but the idea that you think's political dynamics changes and the idea that months and months of televised hearings into the comprehensive corruption of this extraordinarily hated president is going to somehow help him right. You don't need to persuade the entire country. The people that you need to persuade are the people who disapprove of Donald Trump but are not yet convinced that impeachment of course you don't have to persuade the people you just have to persuade a majority of the the people and that can be done and by the way they're also people who are willing to take risks for principal. I know congressman. Jolly says we're not going to be able to persuade any Republicans. I don't know that it may not be zero so maybe whatever but the point is we had southern. Democrats that we had to persuade on the House Judiciary Committee you had wh- WHOA Wallace's governor Wallace's campaign manager voted for impeachment. That was an act of courage. He didn't know what was going to happen. In his district to congressman man from South Carolina he had no idea what was going to happen so between a good case a solid case and there is a case to be made now. There's there's no question about that and a good presentation and trying to persuade Republicans some of them were persuaded by the fact some by the fairness of the process and some by the people in their district who themselves were persuaded day now so it's not just Fox News. It's not just the Republican Party. It's GonNa the Whole Process Chris you had Democrats lose their seats over voting for the Clinton tax bill because they thought it was the right thing to do. When the house pass Obamacare it was pulling that forty percent yeah it was a right to do and they lost the house over the right thing to do. This is the moment the founders feared. This is the moment the founders feared where a president crosses an impeachable moment. The Secretary of state admits this weekend that the State Department enabled the presence lawyer to do so the director of the budget aged office throws the funding in the midst of this and the Attorney General of the United States is coordinating a cover up of all of that. This is why the house was given the the tool not to punish but to charge the question is should the house charge and for those who say well the Senate won't convict. Would you rather live in a world in which nobody nobody tries to hold the president accountable or at least the house does well and the and the final put go back. Argon their side is the idea that the politics of twenty twenty or separate from the president actions is a little bit blown up by this because if if he can do this and go around the world I mean he's a call it. Mohammed bin Salman and be like hey what what are the Saudis out for me you hack. I mean look the argument against impeachment has essentially been no the only way you remove him is in twenty twenty and that's true but you might need impeachment to at least curtail his CIA twenty twenty because if he feels that he can get away with whatever he wants to do he's going to keep doing it and that's going to affect how the election goes.

"I know the GM is responding to China because they are the biggest driver of auto the auto industry right now. I know where the world is heading the direction that at this administration is trying to deny it it is absolutely contrary to reality so GM and other US automakers when they model twenty years from now and they think of hundreds of millions millions of Chinese owners. They don't think those people would be driving fossil fuel combustion engines. They don't and they and they know that right now. They've already invested in the already ready. Have this supplies purchased for cleaner 'cause that a more fuel-efficient just like the Obama administration was requiring of them and they know that if that gets rolled back that their world is tossed up in a way that provides instability to them. They don't want it so as much as this president thanks that all those stuff was really bad for the industries involved. He's not talking to the industries involved. He's just playing some kind of a I told you so game. Everything you did was bad and we're GONNA roll it back with total disregard for what it means for those industries but more importantly would means for you and me and our kids and their future right. I found administrator Gina McCarthy. Thank you so much for being with me. Greet to be Chris. Thanks still to come what Democrats Chris if they don't take action on Bolton President Trump and tonight the thing one thing to starts next thing tonight a cautionary tale for presidential candidates as things heat up on the primary trail there are so many ways things can go things can go wrong at food related campaign events from the awful variety of deep fried things you have to eat to the dangers of being photographed with the corn dog to the actual physical the goal danger of flipping pancakes aw he's fine don't worry that was. Republican candidate Gary Bauer at a New Hampshire Pancake breakfast ahead of the two thousand election but he was not injured most food related campaign mishaps don't actually end ended physical injury but a lot of them do resulting seriously hurt pride which brings us to this weekend's polk county steak fry and that's thing to in sixty seconds the Democratic presidential candidates to I with this weekend for the annual steak fry and the extra fun thing about the steak fries at everyone makes him really grand entrance. Joe Biden came in with a fire truck and marching band his supporters shouting fired up ready for Joe. Cory Booker carried it. I will stay flat as he led in a crowded zone chanting we will rise. Leeann Castro brought along a Mariachi band and showed off some moves a drill team with dancers and drummers lead comma the Harris and her supporters into the FRY senator could resist joining in the fun with them also had a drumline joining her for her entrance and some interesting moves as well now Elizabeth Warren either hand. She was all business here. She is flipping steaks on the grill which of course triggered the soil boys over Breitbart because oh I thought thought dens hate meat for the record burgers were available for the two Vegan Candidates Cory Booker and tells you Gabbard but if you were looking for Yams I think Amy Klobuchar was your only hope nope.

"Wherever you get your podcasts so were some really interesting reactions. This unfolding story about Donald Trump pressuring foreign country Ukraine to help is election twenty twenty by investigating one of his rivals and those reactions are coming from the Senate side which has by and large more or less largely stayed. They'd mom up until now about the issue of impeachment of course doesn't originate in their out so Senator Bryan Shots Democrat Hawaii tweeted quote. What is impeachment for if not for this? I Senator Chris Murphy Democratic Connecticut tweeted quote if he demanded a foreign government news political bidding that's when he crossed the critical threshold no need to over think this and then there's Senator Senator Elizabeth Warren Democrat of Massachusetts obviously running for president who was already on the record supporting impeachment sending an unmistakable message directly to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with this tweet it quote after the Motor Report Congress duty to begin impeachment by failing to act Congress is complicit in trump's latest attempt to solicit foreign interference to aid him in US elections do your constitutional duty and impeach the president pretty direct so that's what's going on in the Senate and the House the tally for impeachment for the Democrats one hundred hundred and thirty four before today when Minnesota Democratic Congressman Dean Phillips came out somewhat surprisingly and I'll explain the second in favor of impeachment saying quote if the reports are corroborated robbery did we must pursue articles of impeachment and report them to the full House of Representatives for media consideration another of his Minnesota colleagues Democratic Congresswoman Angie Craig also following suit and I should tell you that both of those Minnesota Democrats they're from swing districts and they are now in favour impeachment is could be the break glass moment but remains to be seen. I mean if the rest of the Democratic Caucus agrees here with me now. Someone who's been an outspoken advocate of impeachment since well before the current news in fact even before the Mola Report Democratic Congressman Algarve Texas assists who's now introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump unsuccessfully three times a congressman. What do you make of both this story and whether it constitutes shoots high crimes and misdemeanors and the statements of your democratic colleagues in the wake of well. Thank you so much for having me on Mr Hayes. This is an important story story. I could be the straw that will break the camel's back for a number of people who haven't come on board but as you know a good many people have already decided that we should move in the direction action of impeachment. It's my belief that we're seeing a rerun of what happened with Mr Komi. If you'll recall with Mr Komi the president fired the president went on television national TV prime time and said that he was thinking about that Russia thing at the time he fired Mr Komi so this is nothing a new in the sense that the president does this quite regularly. He's done it with other things and he'll continue to do it with reference to my colleagues. We're at the crossroads accountability. Either we will hold the president accountable a we will be held accountable. There are people who literally believe now that we are aiding and abetting the president not not in the legal sense but in the sense that are inactions allow him to continue his actions his invidious actions. I might add so the public expects something from Congress given this circumstance for those who say that you have to wait on the public. I am so pleased that Rosa Parks didn't take a poll. She wouldn't have taken that seat on that bus. If John Lewis had taken a poll before they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge. I'm not sure they would have crossed bloody Sunday and thank God Dr King didn't take take a poll before having the march on Washington the great issues that have to be dealt with are not dealt with based upon polls. They're based upon principles suppose we'll we'll let me ask you this. The the there's a sense right that there's political danger for members of front-line mind districts in moving in some formal sense towards impeachment and I wonder if you think it's significant that those two Minnesota members who are in swing districts who aren't in very safe. It's safe. Democratic seats came out today based on this information. I think you've made a salient point in referencing them. I do do believe that they should be saluted. I commend them for putting principle about politics. What putting the people above our party this is. What has to happen? This is not about Democrats and Republicans. It's about the democracy government of the people by the people for the people and whether we're going to save save our republic they have done the righteous thing not just the right thing but the right to sing it. I commend them and hope that they will continue to encourage others to do so by the yeah I think you'll see more people coming out. The momentum. Now is in the direction of impeachment. I think the president will be impeached and I think that you'll see many more. Come out within within the next week or two so tomorrow. There's going to be a house caucus members only meeting at four. PM Do have anticipation. I think this will be one of the agenda items along with. I think some discussion of trade in the presence efforts to ratify kind of Nafta two point. Oh whether the speaker will put muscle behind that effort deliver that for the president do you anticipate a lot of this could be hashed out in that caucus tomorrow. Is this something strenuous debate about well. I would hope so in this sense. I think we need to have a discussion about what impeachment really is your prior guests. I believe his name was David. He made us an important point when he said that this is political and if we we are going to make this a trial where you have to have guilt beyond a reasonable doubt clear and convincing evidence then we're doing the constitution a disservice the framers didn't didn't intend for us to have to have a criminal offence this misdeeds that we're witnessing and they made it possible for us to impeach the president for his misdeeds when he spoke to the president of Ukraine and he abide by virtue of the circumstances was extorting him. You don't have to have extortion in the legal sets you just have it in the sense of misdeed this political there will be no appeal to the Supreme Court. We don't have to tell anybody why we voted a to impeach. This is all about doing what we would do. If we were the corporate board members of a of a company and the corporate chief executive officer was misbehaving such as to hurt the company the president is hurting the country and we have a duty responsibility obligation to take that to the Senate and let the Senate Act if the Senate doesn't impeach him then those senators will have to answer co Congressman Al Green. Thank you so much time. Thank you next climate activists. Credit Timberg. It shows no mercy in her. UN address it or powerful testimony after this this is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet. You all come to US young people for hope. How dare you you have stolen my dreams in my I childhood with your empty words yet. I one of the lucky ones people are suffering. People are dying sighing entire ecosystems collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is. He's a money of each economic growth. How dare you I was sixteen year old climate activists. Credit Berg chastising relievers today at the kickoff of the UN climate action summit the summit was convened in effort to get nations to commit to more ambitious plans to curb curb greenhouse gases than they had agreed to the Paris climate accord's. There are reports that many possibly all of the world's countries are poised to miss even those Paris emissions targets sometimes sometimes by a wide margin at least those countries have targets the one country the one country on earth that pulled out of Paris is our own with our withdrawal effective different twenty twenty and today when they started it looked like donald trump wasn't even going to bother to show up at the climate summit but in just a tiny nod to the fact that the politics of this issue are changing even trump who advertises his own contempt for concerns about climate change couldn't quite get away with just not showing up no he popped popped into the climate summit for fourteen minutes before leaving for an event focused on religious freed trump was unfortunately not present while Greta was speaking of the Guardian captured this video Israel the visibly unamused Sumberg watching trump today as he approached the cameras in the UN lobby. I'm joined now by the former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency under Barack Obama Gina McCarthy is now professor at the Harvard Kennedy School Cadaver here if it were not this president this administration at UN climate week but it were another one say Barack Obama or a president who is committed to the basic facts of climate and parents would should the US S. leadership role this week look like and we should be playing a leadership role. It shouldn't be a fourteen minute drop in it should have been that we give the speech that drives the rest of the world to take action on the climate crisis. It should be talking about what I cities and states are doing. It should be talking about what the president of the United States is doing in to lead the way it should talk about why we need to do it for jobs and economy not just for the planet but for the health of communities citizens that's what it would have been an under Barack Obama. There's an argument that you see made now by Republicans increasingly who I think have come to realize it. Outright nihilism is embarrassing political loser to this kind of argument futility which is basically we're twenty percents global emissions and if we do anything. China and India are just GONNA eat lunch and in fact this week they're going to announce whether people are hitting their emissions targets under Paris and most countries. I think all countries are not how do you respond to that cynic to that argument that the Russell world isn't doing their part either. Would it surprise anyone on the know that the United States who was the second leading greenhouse gas amidror in the world is out of the picture to think that other countries may not be stepping up relationship. Oh absolutely I do and I think that under President Obama we knew that we had to take strong domestic action to have the credibility we needed to lead the rest of the world a global solution on climate change which is what is necessary and we took those steps and we were able to go to Paris. We were able to actually lead the world to get a resolution that mattered one that people would stand behind and if the countries of the world taking a pass right now is because the United States is absent and from the discussion and we need to get it back. We need to get it back quickly. You're you're the administrator of the EPA and I wonder both in your role there and in your career afterwards if you have relationships with other folks at had similar kinds of positions in other countries Minister of the environment or environmental administrators and and how oh the view this and how they view their own domestic politics and dealing yeah well his the shortest answer I can give is when I talked to people I always begin with a little bit of an an apology for the United States right now because we're not at the table nevermind leading and then they always say Gina. Everybody has had an administration astray Shen that that they're not particularly behind and maybe not even proud of but don't do it again. That's really really their answer to me. Once is okay twice as a disaster and I think that's a pretty much going theme because we are losing time time. We have about eleven years to really make some serious effort on climate change and we have the students out there begging for us to take action. My favorite sign was if the adults can't do it. We will and that's what they're poking at and we have to step up. Its It's time and this administration clearly is annoying to do at this. This term and it's not going to do any future term so it's up to the folks in the United States to decide who they want to stand behind. One of the things mission is doing is sort of give. Lee Rolling back regulations that reduce emissions. They're trying to get rid of methane. Emissions nations methods powerful greenhouse gas even though it stays the atmosphere for shorter duration than carbon. They're also attempting to block the automakers from voluntary packed with California for increased priest fuel efficiency there now they're suing in court now and they're even threatening sick the Justice Department of the report on this last week how big a deal is this story as it continues to play out well. I think the California thing is a big deal if everybody wasn't a little bit snickering at it because it's absolutely absolutely preposterous. I mean California has a right in the law to do what they're doing and they're doing it. In a way that made four of the biggest car companies join them to protect themselves against this administration's rollback and then the the administration stood up and they proposed their rollback in there wasn't a single automaker acre standing with them. Does this tell you anything. You know what it should tell you is. The world knows we're moving to clean cars..
"al green" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Tonight on all in Russia if you're listening the president keeps running the same play. If you don't talk about corruption why would you give money. Donald Donald trump admits to using his power to coerce a foreign government into sabotaging his opponent. I think the most serious charge against the president tonight what we we know about what the president has already done and his new pressure builds on leaders in the house we may very well have crossed the Rubicon here. We'll Democrats dare to try and stop Donald Trump. When do we say we hold them accountable and what happened today. When the world convened in New York to address the climate catastrophe we we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is a money tales of each economic growth. How okay you all in starts right now. Good evening from New York. I'm Chris as when it comes to the president's actions with Ukraine. We don't have all the facts we don't have access to the whistleblower complaint which is still being withheld from Congress and apparent violation law. We don't have the transcript of the phone conversation. President trump have the Ukrainian president even though trump today said quote. I hope you get to see it and I hope you get to see it soon. Take that with a little salt but what is clear now is it. The basic contours are essentially agreed to by all parties including the president the reporting and over time president trump himself acknowledging that in a phone call. Donald trump pressured the head of Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden with the possibility hanging over his head the US would not release hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid the country says it needs to defend itself against the Russians who have already the invaded all of that has essentially been copter and we've gone through this trajectory before just not in quite as short a timeframe. I the president denies it and the White House and trump. TV called fake news and then Rudy Giuliani gives an interview giving away way more than anyone expects and then we'll behold president trump one caught pivots too so what defense confirming that he talked to the Ukrainian president and he said they talked about quote unquote corruption which of course we all know is is use the same way they talked about adoption with the Russians in two thousand sixteen. That's just a code word for this very specific. Ask us the official instruments of Ukraine's Ukraine's justice system to wound my political rival. President also conceded that the money the US had appropriate to give Ukraine was at issue issue and to make it easy for us. He did all of that in front of cameras earlier this morning Ukrainian president about Joe Biden and his son and you're gonna see because what we are doing. Is We want honesty and if we do with the country we want honesty and I think with the new president you're going to see much more honesty in the Ukraine and that's what we're looking for. We're supporting a country. We want to make sure that countries honest. It's very important to talk about corruption corruptions. If you don't talk about corruption. Why would you give money to a country that you think is is corrupt. One of the reasons the new president got elected as he was going to stop corruption corruption so it's very important that on occasion you speak to somebody about corruption very important so throughout the day all three major parts of the contention right and investigation negation pertaining to Biden or you don't get the money and that is obviously impeachable abuse of power a president unilaterally hijacking American foreign policy and public dollars as a tool for extortion bribery and blackmail a foreign country to get them to sabotage..

Dem Rep. Al Green: Impeach Trump For Racist Tweets
"Yesterday. An attempt was made to impeach trump congressman Al Green Democrat from Texas filed the resolution as a response wants to trump's boil boldly indeed racist suggestion for U._S.. Congresswoman go back Wednesday came a theme gleefully elaborated upon by chorus of hooting yokels at a trump rally in North Carolina last night now. I'm joined with more on this by U._S.. U._S. affairs analyst Jacob Para Kilos Jacob the thing that may not seem immediately apparent to the passing observer this is of course the Democrats do have a majority in the House of Representatives but the impeachment vote what was lost three hundred and thirty two to ninety five with one hundred and thirty seven hundred thirty seven Democrats voting against why well there's a significant strategic difference of opinion amongst the Democratic House caucus about how to proceed receive impeachment or indeed whether to proceed with impeachment at all this came up very very quickly in direct response to the president's racist tweets and follow up commentary about Ilhan Omar Alexandra Cossio Cortez and other Democratic representatives who are all not coincidentally women of color he basically I think <hes> representative green described this as a vote of conscience. I mean the the normal way to do. If there is such a thing because as you rightly point out impeachment it's very rare in American history but the normal way to do this the process that Nixon was in the middle of what he decided to resign would be to hold hearings to open an impeachment inquiry to sort of move this forward through a long and fairly arduous process rather than just snapping to an impeachment vote because of course the impeachment itself is not the removal from office.
Trump supporters chant "send her back"
"President trump brought his attacks on for democratic Congress want women to a campaign rally in North Carolina last night both supporters that they want to demolish the constitution and weak in the military force bonded Natalie brand reports that trump name each member of the so called squad by name Omar president trump names the four freshmen congressmen and one by one attacking each for her comments and ideas and drawing chants from the crowd the president kicked off Israeli by thanking house Democrats for voting down an impeachment effort by Texas Democrat Al Green earlier
House votes to block a resolution to impeach Trump
"President trump took a swipe at an impeachment resolution push by house Democrat Al Green that failed to get the votes needed trump told a rally in North Carolina the resolution how stupid is that corresponding Caitlyn Colin says the president's supporters stand behind him as trump says he has no regrets about his tweets said for democratic freshman congresswoman should go back to their home countries despite the fact they are all
"al green" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"It wasn't what it whenever I hear Al Green I will help you know think of V. Al Green of course that's what you think but there's this representative Al Green and of course listen even if this thing was was taken up I mean the long all odds that he would face ridiculous but just the fact that if it has been tabled over hearing that maybe it's been table for now but this clearly is a very direct challenge to the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and the handling of the impeachment issue up until now by policy where she said no we're not getting into that that's pretty much still been the tactic and the ideology of pelo see is we're not dealing with impeachment you know it also would have represented a dilemma for both impeachment supporters and then the rest of the democratic caucus because if there was a vote it would put them on a record in what's likely to be a vote to either kill the resolution or two referring to the house Judiciary Committee so I guess we're gonna follow this now green Al Green Bay and the elderly Al Green he putting a lot of Democrats in a in a very tough position yeah forcing the house is what his hope was to take up the impeachment issue are to take up his drafted the articles of impeachment against the president trump now under house rules which means that the house has to act within a couple of days if this had gone through and you know green is dismissed colts from within his very own party including leadership the stop the nonsense hold off on the resolution it but it looks like this is been awarded for now so yeah this is Stolz an uncomfortable position and optics for Nancy pull she doesn't want this hello he doesn't want this so you for news these articles of impeachment last night arguing that the impeachment should follow the house vote that you know condemn the the president's you know what I go back come and said the the the the room racist tweets which it was not a racist tweet as it's been labeled so Al Green represented from Texas wanted his resolution to follow that and that didn't happen that looks like it's it's not gonna happen today but we'll we'll keep following this so we'll we'll let you know he walks Al Green once articles of impeachment to be voted on you know the for mother even testifies on Capitol Hill and of course the mall or testimony I was supposed to occur today mon was supposed to be on Capitol Hill testifying this very Wednesday that's been pushed off till next week and of course I you know the Democrats the the the trump haters in the party they're hoping they're praying there there hang on to a wing and a prayer that they can each something new out of Moller Moller is said that he's going to stick with what's in the report so there's plenty of the report you know that they've sunk their teeth into I don't know what else but again they're they're champing at the bit they're salivating like Pavlov's dog they're hoping that this will be some new breaking cal good news that there's gonna be some nor revelation they're cling on to this hope that they get to be able to just chat with some new anti trump information out of Robert Muller and it's gonna sink trumpet it's it's not gonna happen I mean it's it's delusion know what they're after here but you know I I I think also that there are plenty of Democrats that are you know realizing that in a mall or is not gonna offer up anything in their silly little dog and pony show that you know they're they're they're banking on there they're planning on so was it if they can't make you know conspiracy or obstruction charges stick I guess the the their their shop in the races charges now hello see I don't know if you knew this but Nancy Pelosi has already stopped about eighty eight zero similar moves by other over zealous members of her democratic caucus you know by you know keeping their resolutions and articles of impeachment off before so you know clearly she would go into overdrive to do the same thing we have Al Green anyway this one is the wrap this up before I grab a couple of calls to wrap it up this morning Nancy Pelosi was asked whether she supported al green's impeachment resolution and she said no does that come as a surprise to you so I mean that she actually said it was a quote and I was in our in some comments this morning that she had presser early this afternoon yes she was respectful of green but said Hey with all due respect to representative green and is as soon as somebody says Hey with all due respect that but you know that it's a it's a smack down and she also said that the resolution on the the ridiculous racist tweet a situation she also commented that you wouldn't believe what some of her democratic members wanted to put into the resolution and I think that that statement that she was cautious and she had a prevent some I guess some really terse language or nastiness from being put into this tweet resolution you know calling the the tweets racist so what she had to keep out I mean to me that speaks volumes I am not just signifies the rift that is going on inside the caucus verses you know rank and file versus some of the the leadership and what they want so big rift in the caucus even though they vice somewhat unified and and call a laugh after the the trump but tweeting situation right so it looks like Al Green is tabled for now we'll follow it as to any new confirmation for many a top Capitol Hill sources on that all right I saw a lot they and eight still stands at a peers to be a soul for now well that's a good thing because it just a charade and a dog and pony show eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine a nationwide number eight hundred eight zero one eighty nine ninety nine that's how you get on the program I'll tell you what I'm gonna go to phones here in just a moment of your own hold we'll we'll do phones for the rest of the hour I still have to get to the latest on Jeffrey obscene and MSNBC going Gaga over some video they dug up from nineteen ninety two we'll get into that coming up in just a bit and your phone.
House weighs bringing articles of impeachment against Trump
"Facebook I'm gonna take you through some of the nitty gritty of what happened yesterday what happened yesterday was more than just a floor fight instability screwed up and we are going to see a movement on impeachment in the house I'm going to explain why and why you shouldn't freak out over it she's going to have a press conference here shortly and we are going to take some of that because I and I think that that's going to that we're gonna see where she's gonna go with us there is so what happened yesterday and I will I watched it I was also doing like a million other things I I watched as it happened and I was really fascinated to see it go down the way it did she messed up at eight I mean she really did she really did mess up at at at some point because what ended up happening is that she well she violated those those rules are violated the the rules of decorum there because and here here's a I have so many things up so just give me bear with me it literally says in V. I. the handbook is Jefferson's manual and this gets into the weeds a little bit because even though yes it's a Republican the way things are structured it's hundred center but we write we also incorporate parliamentary rules so that we can maintain order so that things can progress because it can otherwise it could be just even more of a freak show that it is any manual literally says and I'm reading for I'm reading verbatim from it it says quote and I'm an ex give over all the dead the citations at such a reference references to racial or other discrimination on the part of the president are not in order as such remarks may not refer to the president as a racist and it gives different having made racial slurs racial epithets telling a racist lines using direct quote a bigot having made a bigoted or racist statement having taken bigoted action I mean it goes on and on having run a prejudiced campaign and give citations you know I but so that's it's literally a rule violation breed I quoted it verbatim it is literally a rules violation and so that was what that that is what the back and forth was that you saw when there was a dramatic pause because they were going with the it was the Democrats and it was the parliamentarian's office and it was just you know back and forth back and forth so green AL Greene has filed articles of impeachment and they will have a particular amount of time that that they're I mean they're gonna have to they're going to have to at some point I think what is it two legislative days at this point and to go through with that and what I mean again it's Adam and also get into all the latest with the squad in all of this stuff but I need to pull as is expected to hold a press conference here and a little bit and we're going to take that when she comes up because I'm interested in hearing what is set up because if you noticed the interview that the four congresswoman did gave to Gayle king they double down on it they also mention impeachment but did you know that they also refocused the attack back on into below sea there is a lot that's going on here that's more than meets the eye it is this isn't yes it is about trump but don't think for one second that this party is unified in the wake of of his tweet don't think for one second that they are this is the battle of battles for this party this is the life or death right now of the Democrat party it will be determined by twenty twenty and in the civil war going on with Democrats I have to say you if you're AT at this point it's great to watch them consume each other but you need to pause and hope for a reason because you could end up the further leftist party goes the further left other people may be drawn with it so it is a cautionary tale for everyone now as where it concerns Nancy Pelosi al green's move it and this is I'm looking at this piece here there's a couple of pieces so he introduced articles of impeachment because of the privileged nature of the resolution beat it they're gonna have to legislative days he can he can bore he can force a vote on the impeachment articles into legislative days if the house leadership doesn't do anything so Nancy Pelosi's options at this point are limited this was the fight that she was hoping to stave off now she's approaching the podium now I want to hear this because this is going to determine the fight that they're gonna bring to drop in the general election listen this is John the a justice Stevens with a true guardian of the constitution he made history not only as the longest serving justice but it's one of its finest country more influence will be flying in St Monday the service will be Tuesday and again it's a great loss to our country today last night a head of a particular pleasant experience which was to sign the legislation which enabled us to use the Washington Monument as a backdrop for the moon launch exciting I hope everyone will take advantage of observing that as we observe that historic event in our country the world's history at seven it's pretty exciting so here we are because you know we campaigned on for the people agenda slowing health care costs building as either a bigger paychecks clear government and to that end of their paychecks this week we'll have three bills on the floor raising the minimum wage raising the minimum wage increase wages for up to thirty three million workers and if one point three million Americans out of poverty it would help secure fairness and equality for women many of whom are will be the beneficiaries of getting nearly twenty million working women a raise and help narrow the gender gap to me that we should get the disproportionately impact women we're also proud to pass this bill a tomorrow on the anniversary of the Seneca falls convention which America declared that all men and women were created well also continuing a diverse our promises to workers to day will honor our promise to be at to the hard working men and women of the labor of labor as we lift of the Cadillacs taxes seem I'm gonna have you monitor her speech and when she gets the part that we want to hear you take it live for us if you don't mind please Sir but as she gets through all of those few she's gonna get to it she's gonna say all of that stuff first get it all out there while everybody watches everybody's attention but as I said so I'll green in introducing these articles impeachment after they pass this resolution of that and she had she realizes she must option of walking off the floor which also was a rules violation I mean if you're if you're accusing the did the president of violating decorum then why are you violated the Koran to accuse the president of violating the core of that's what I find fascinating with all of this so he can drink and force a vote on the impeachment articles into legislative days so she doesn't really have a lot of good options before her and this has been the moment that she has wanted to push off for quite some time because she realizes that if there is a move on impeachment in the house you are delivering the election to drop that is it you might as a and not only are you delivering the election to trump but you're delivering a lot of vulnerable Democrat seats to trump that will light a fire under Republicans and you will see a turn out on like you have you haven't seen and I'll I'll goodness the generation it's gonna be pretty insane so she knows this because she's been in Congress for for ever and this is where she is right she's right because that absolutely will happen you'll even see individuals disillusioned who are Democrats but are disillusioned with the way Democrats are legislating that out of spite they will show up and they will they'll vote the vote or for Republicans or maybe they won't go out at all she may even suppressed her own basis turn out and she can't ignore it this is something she can't ignore because it's a privilege motion green knows this child this could she has tried to fight this off and this ended it so anything that she does at this point is going take is going to trigger an additional fight within her within her caucus anything else that she does at this point there's gonna be a fight because it is going to I I mean if she moves on it she's going to make the moderates mad if she doesn't move on it she's going to make the socialists mad so this is she doesn't have a she doesn't have a lot of options before her and she's taking questions at this point and Stever she being asked about any of this stuff because if I have to hear some about a quality and all this other stuff I'm just going to I've lost my okay well let us know when she gets to the meat potatoes so we are that's what that is she I mean her caucus is gonna be further divided so that is that and and yet these are I mean you're looking at districts that trump one in twenty sixteen where there are in battle Democrats who will lose their seats seventy Murphy is a representative out of Florida and she is the head of the conservative blue dog Democrat group and she says yeah this is she's I mean she's worried about this all the other more moderate Democrats are worried about this candidates like Joe Biden or worried about this because see this kind of stuff is going to affect how he his support within the party need to pull it the it's not just it's not just a fight for Nancy policies ability to control her her caucus and her ability to control Democrats in the house it's also a fight for the direction of the Democrat party and I don't think this was intentional but at least with this with with the president's tweets were listening to policies press on the she's being asked questions about all this now as
The House has condemned Donald Trump's racist tweets. Now what?
"Neither side backing down house Democrats voting last night to condemn president trump's tweets concerning for Congress woman saying his comments of legitimize fear and hatred of immigrants and people of color Mr drum standing by his tweets and comments here's ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl on how this all could affect the upcoming presidential race so there's a real risk here for the president because his highest approval ratings are on the handling of the economy he could be running a presidential reelection campaign based on that age old question are you better off today than you were four years ago but instead he's telegraphing arrays of election based on fear division racial resentment they will alienate a lot of people that frankly are better offer feel better off than they were four years ago the wake of his drums racist remarks Texas congressman Al Green introducing articles of impeachment green introducing those articles immediately after the house vote to condemn the president's tweets of Mr grain saying that the president is unfit for office this comes just a week before special counsel Robert Muller was due to testify publicly about his Russia

"House Democrats you're sending a very clear message they wanted to go on the record too strongly condemned the president's racist tweets and they use that word and this is about trying to yes and a forceful message from the house of representatives but let's be honest this is also largely about house Democrats trying to force Republicans to go on the record that they had to cast a vote one way or another to say where they stood on the president's comment the vote was two forty to one eighty seven for Republicans joining the Democrats in voting yes moments later Texas Democrat Al Green introduced another resolution form of the resolution is as follows impeaching Donald John trump the debt of the United States of high misdemeanor there was no vote on that resolution and it's unclear if there will be one Terry Alden or

"And we're gonna get some perspective and analysis on this story we are joined live in studio by KCBS political reporter Doug sovereign died before the vote actually took place there was a pretty remarkable fight on the floor recap it for us yeah it was a pretty extraordinary day crazy day on on the house floor first of all Nancy Pelosi got up and made some remarks in which she described the comments by the president as racist and that sparked an outrage in an uproar from that Republican you just read their Doug Collins from Georgia because there's a rule in their parliamentary rules this is you cannot call the president racist or his comments racist they had a big fight over whether she was out of order should her remarks be taken down stricken from the record she eventually won that fight after quite a squabble on the floor then Eric Swalwell from the East Bay got up and started reciting some of the things the president has said and saying that's races that's racist that sparked another quarrel between the Republicans the Democrats yet you're a man his remarks to take out an offensive word that the president used to S. whole countries to describe African country so all of that was a preamble before they finally have this vote mostly on party lines as your for Republicans and one now independent recently Republican Justin Amash voted with the Democrats otherwise it was a party line vote in duck on that note if I'm remembering correctly there were about a dozen or more Republicans who were suggesting that this was not appropriate for the president and yet as you say only for them actually cast their votes with Democrats yeah that's right I where they went to where their backbone when took before this vote but that they change their minds and effective some changing of votes at a couple of points a couple Republicans voted for it and then change to no vote so we don't know who you don't know laughter who who's was voted which way but yeah in the end of just a handful of Republican side with the Democrats so it it's seen as a partisan squabble but this was like an open wound on the house floor I mean you don't see this let full of victory all of raw emotion very often I can't recall the last time I saw it in the debate on the house floor it was pretty remarkable and this story is dominated the news cycle for the last few days with the vote is it donde they move on when I've got an impeachment vote because Al Green from Texas Kay stood up and introduced a resolution to impeach the president article of impeachment so that may or may not come to a vote later in the week may for speaker Pelosi to hold a vote on that I don't think it would pass most Democrats are not there yet but you know I'm sure both sides hope this will settle down a little bit you know on the one hand the president has managed to distract from everything else and played was space who obviously you know he's got overwhelming support among the Republican Party in ninety seven percent something like that on the other hand he's managed to unify a pretty divided democratic caucus I mean you had the squad as they're called before progressive women freshman in open didn't dispute with their leadership and they've all circle the wagons and are very much on the same side now these publicly so he has managed to unite a a fairly disparate Democratic Party in Congress which probably is not to his advantage how all this eventually plays out in twenty twenty of course remains to be seen do you see this in continuing to be a big campaign issue I mean he is you said it remains to be seen but I'm thinking for example the Republicans have talked openly about the need to court people of color is this going to be a wage for that happening well I think the Republicans want to use this as a wedge issue against the Democrats in twenty twenty to say look at the future of the Democratic Party don't vote for them they're all socialists and it will certainly heard you know the Democrats can come back and say to those people of color and anyone else Republicans are trying to bring in look what the Republicans really stand for a look at the things the president says in tweets and his own party stands behind and no matter what he does virtually every Republican stands with them the problem for them is that most Republican voters stand with trump as well they they don't care frankly what we've seen we what he says what he does as long as they do as long as he does what they want and as long as they're getting what they want from him policy wise they're willing to overlook pretty much anything KCBS political reporter Doug softened KCBS there's time for
