Pelosi: U.S. in constitutional crisis

"Days after announcing a formal impeachment inquiry into president trump house speaker Nancy Pelosi says this is about the constitution not politics this is very bad news for our country because if it is it is as it seems to be our president engaged in something that so far beyond what our founders had in mind they knew that some president might well beyond what the constitution intended and they put a guard rails there this goes beyond any guard rails she spoke at the Texas Tribune festival in Austin a whistle blower complaint against the president alleged trump in a phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart Aston to investigate his democratic rival Joe Biden and his son hunter Nikolay also laid out how the call came around the same time the administration froze hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine approved by Congress well the impeachment process itself that can get complicated okay picks TV reporter Melissa Kane explains how it works impeachment is not a conviction impeachment just means there is enough evidence to have a trial and that trial has to be in the Senate where a two thirds vote is required for a conviction William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the integrity of this office after the house voted to impeach Bill Clinton there was a trial in the Senate in early nineteen ninety nine the constitution requires the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to preside over the Senate trial and back then it was Chief Justice William Rehnquist among those backing this impeachment inquiry governor Cuomo although it took some explaining to get to that point the governor on Thursday night had said the quote unquote inquiry was open because of pressure from leftist Democrats he was at an event with former New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie well a day later in a statement to politico is office as his position had been misrepresented and his comments. Cuomo aide that and that is common Cuomo police speaker Pelosi must proceed with an impeachment investigation as a matter of constitutional duty saying everything changed after the Ukraine revelations as for the president he maintains he did nothing wrong what's going on now is the single greatest scam in the history of American politics. in that same video a message he talked about guns health care judicial appointments in the economy says Democrats wanna take everything away Republicans argue trump did not pressure Ukrainian president Vladimir salen ski during their phone conversations the state department under the trump administration is taking another look at Hillary Clinton emails The Washington Post reports as many as a hundred and thirty former click names have been contacted by the state department investigators they were told emails they said years ago have now been retroactively classified and they now constitute potential security violations the post says in virtually all of the cases potentially sensitive information has now been re categorized as classified.

He is a graduate from both is bachelor's and his juris doctor from Harvard University, a well educated man, solid conservative credentials, serving Reagan Bush and Bush before becoming chief Justice as nominated by President, George W Bush. Just said something that is. Unprecedented. But we haven't heard anything like this in recent years. It's definitely the first time under President Trump. We've heard this. Chief Justice John Roberts is being reported by every major news organization right now push back against President Donald Trump who described who who ruled against President Trump's migrate asylum policy. President Trump went after him saying many things including saying that this judge did it because he's an Obama. Judge Obama judge. And chief Justice John Roberts said today that the United States does not have and I quote, Obama judges or Trump judges Bush judges or Clinton judges. He released this statement by the it was a statement released by the supreme court after the Associated Press inquired chief Justice Roberts said on this day before thanksgiving that a quote, and quote, excuse me, independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for and quote. The White House had no immediate response, but the president referred to a judge who was presiding over this fraud lawsuit against Trump university. Remember this as a Mexican would be unable to rule fairly because of his proposal. Bill the wall along the us Mexico border. Yeah. Mexican American by the way, not a Mexican a Mexican American. We have enough controversy in this United States to bringing the courts into it. And it was actually I was on FOX business last night. Just before me. There was some judicial analyst who said something that I was like, no, no, reputable attorney would ever say this this is so I will call this person. I do not remember her name. I would have to go back and rewatch the segment on FOX business last night. Which was Regan. She said. Oh, yeah. People call it the nutty ninth circuit. Now, they don't know they don't know reputable attorney ever calls it that no reputable attorney ever calls it that. Only a partisan hack would say that not a reputable attorney doesn't go around saying, oh, it's the ninety ninth circuit. Now, they don't you can disagree with the ninth circuit Chaz tendency to lean liberal, but nobody no attorney calls it the ninety ninth. Oh, a lawyer might do that. But not an attorney..

But what you are thankful for. I will be talking about that sprinkling that's route. But man, this news that just broke is. This is a big deal. Actually, I don't think people quite realize how big of a deal. It really is John Glover Roberts junior. You know, him better as chief Justice John Roberts. He was nominated by President George W Bush after the death of chief Justice William Rehnquist, he's conservative considered to have a conservative judicial philosophy. He was he also served on the DC circuit for two years before that. And from nineteen eighty nine and nineteen ninety three. He was principal deputy solicitor general of the United States under George H W Bush. He was associate counsel to the president from November one thousand nine hundred eighty two to April nineteen Eighty-six under Ronald Reagan. He is. A graduate from both is bachelor's and his juris doctor from Harvard University, a well educated man, solid conservative credentials, serving Reagan Bush and Bush before becoming chief Justice as nominated by President George W Bush. Just said something that is I don't wanna say unprecedented. But we haven't heard anything like this in recent years. It's definitely the first time under President Trump. We've heard this chief Justice John Roberts as being reported by every major news organization right now push back against President Donald Trump who described who who ruled against President Trump's migrate asylum policy. President Trump went after him saying many things including saying that this judge did it because he's an Obama. Judge Obama judge. And chief Justice John Roberts said today that the United States does not have and I quote, Obama judges or Trump judges Bush judges or Clinton judges he released this statement by this. It was a statement released by the supreme court after the Associated Press inquired chief Justice Roberts said on this day before thanksgiving that a quote, and quote, excuse me, independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for and quote. The White House had no immediate response, but the president referred to a judge who was presiding over this fraud lawsuit against Trump university. Remember this as a Mexican who would be unable to rule fairly because of his proposal to build a wall along the us Mexico border. A Mexican American by the way, not a Mexican a Mexican American. We have enough controversy in this United States to bringing the courts into it. And it was actually I was on FOX business last night. Just before me. There was some judicial analyst who said something that I was like, no, no, reputable attorney would ever say this this is so I will call this person. I do not remember her name. I would have to go back and rewatch the segment on FOX business last night. Which was Regan. She said. Oh, yeah. People call it the nutty ninth circuit. Now, they don't know they don't know reputable attorney ever calls it that no reputable attorney ever calls it that. Only a partisan hack would say that not a reputable attorney doesn't go around saying, oh, the ninety ninth circuit. No, they don't you disagree with the ninth circuit says the tendency to lean liberal, no attorney calls.
