Nancy Pelosi Is Hung up on Previous Democrat Wins

"You want to hear a prime example of Democrat fear panic and denial, I give you the madam speaker herself. I have absolutely no intention of the Democrats not winning the House in November. I think that in terms of our the work that this president has done and it's been a great president, I don't know about polls, but I do know about winning the races one district at a time. When we won in 18, we won 40 seats, 31 in Trump districts. They're giving us a clue. 31 in Trump districts. He wasn't on the ballot. I said, now comes the hard part, because he's now on the ballot in 2020. So we lost about a third of those seats, but the ones who won are practically ironclad. Some of them have. Different tweaks for better or worse on redistricting, but we expect them all to come back and to add to our number. I hate to be petty. I really hate to be nasty and mean spirited, but I can't wait to hear her first press conference after November 8th, 2022.

The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. She writes what's next and the most disturbing part she writes of the mili- story is nancy. Pelosi's malign influence. The general seem to treat her as his commander in chief pelosi who was engaged in a blood feud with trump that sent her batty manipulated and bullied. Milly a transcript of a call with pelosi two days after the january six capital riot obtained by the payroll authors has her ranting at about trump's access to nuclear weapons pelosi said if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the capital who even knows what else he may do and is there anybody in charge of the white house who is doing anything but kissing his fat but all over this.

Voters weigh in on Marjorie Taylor Greene as House votes to oust her from committees

"On Capitol Hill were congressional Democrats taking the rare step of removing a member from the committee's with a handful of Republican votes. Georgia Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene was stripped of her to committee assignments. Education and budget. The final vote tonight was to 30 to 1 99, with 11 Republicans siding with the Democratic majority. Earlier today, the Georgia lawmakers speaking on the House floor for about 10 Minutes. In her speech, she said that she quote stopped believing in Q and on some time in 2018 after finding misinformation, lies and things that were not true. She also walked back some previous comments suggesting that school shootings like the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary and the 20 18 Parkland shooting were staged. She also attracted the past claim, suggesting that the 9 11 terror attacks may not have occurred more from the House floor with representative Marjorie Taylor Greene earlier today, So when we elected President Trump and then I started seeing things in the news that didn't make sense to me like Russian collusion. Which are conspiracy theories also and have been proven. So these things bothered me deeply, and I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something. And this is that the end of 2017 called Q and on. Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news that night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. I asked questions about it. And then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018 because I was upset about things and didn't trust The government really, because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about and I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is so as I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret because if it weren't for the face Post and comments that I liked in 2018. I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of, and that's what my district elected me for. Those comments from freshman representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia responding here is Democratic Congressman Jim McGovern in Massachusetts. Is also the chair of the House Rules Committee, explaining why Democrats decided to proceed with today's four vote that would strip the representative from her two key committee assignments. The party of Lincoln is becoming the party of violent conspiracy theories, and apparently, the leaders of the Republican Party in the House today are not going to do a damn thing about it. Now. I never thought I would say this Madam speaker, but I agree with Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader this week. Called Congress one greens embrace of conspiracy theories, and I quote a cancer for the Republican Party and quote I would take it a step further. I think giving cars when green, a megaphone on his standing committee would be a cancer on this entire Congress. None of us get to decide who the voters sent to Congress but his members of this body it is our job to set the standard for the conduct of those who serve here, especially when They cross the line into violence. The Republican talking point now seems to be. I condemn Congresswoman Green's words. But Madam speaker, her words air indefensible period and we must act not because it helps us or hurts them, but because it is the right thing to do for this institution and for America, and that from Congressman Jim McGovern from today. His floor debate, at one point of the representative before elected to Congress referred to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying that she should take quote a bullet to the head at her weekly news conference, this from the House speaker, I remained profoundly concerned about House Republicans leadership acceptance of extreme conspiracy theorist. Particularly to service their eagerness to reward a fool, a non adherent, a 9 11 truther, ah harasser of child survivors of school shootings and a value to give them valued committee positions, including who could imagine they would put such a person on the Education Committee today, and the House will vote to remove represent green from her seat on education and labor and the budget committees. That's just so unfortunate you would I think that the Republican leadership in the Congress would have some sense of responsibility to this institution, as they did when they did not see represented King of Iowa or two years ago for some reason. E have chosen not to go down that path. Even though we gave Mr Hoyer gave the leader McCarthy sufficient notice that this was ah, path. We would follow that early today from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It was last night in

Ten republicans voted to impeach including southwest washington. State's jaime herrera butler declare fire enemy. Isn't the president or the president. Elect fear is our enemy tells us what we want to hear. It incites anger and violence in fire. But it also haunts us into silence and inaction. What are you afraid of. I'm afraid of what people will say or think. I'm afraid of being devalued losing my job but i am afraid that my country will fail. I'm afraid patriots of this country have died in vain. Children won't grow up in a free country. I'm afraid in justice will prevail but truth truth sets us free from fear. Truth doesn't guarantee bad things won't happen but it does promise to always prevail in the end it has no shadows where darkness can hide with. Truth comes levin. we could use that right. My vote to impeach. Our sitting president is not a fear based decision. I am not choosing side. I'm choosing truth is the only way to defeat. Fear jaime herrera butler of the vancouver area standing up for truth there central washington's dan newhouse also voted to impeach. He started his speech with some good old. What aboutism madam speaker. This is a sad day in our republic but not a saturday disheartening as the violence we witnessed in the capital last wednesday. We are all responsible. My colleagues are responsible for not condemning writers past year like like those who barricaded the doors of the seattle police department and attempted to murder the officers. Inside that is a reference to seattle's east precinct. Building where some rioters tried to seal the twelfth avenue door with cement while officers were inside on the pine street side of the building. Someone started fire. We don't know whether they were connected. One person has been charged with arson. I don't believe anyone's charged with murder as to his Colleagues who didn't condemn violence. He didn't make clear which colleagues he means. This is house speaker nancy. pelosi september. We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy that does not include looting starting fires or rioting those are they should be prosecuted list after this new house moved on to continue his speech on the house floor voting to impeach the president and he did take some responsibility others including myself are responsible for not speaking out sooner before the president misinformed at inflamed a violent mob who tore down the american flag and brutally beat capital police officers adam speaker. We must all do better. These articles of impeachment are flawed. But i will not use process as an excuse. There's no excuse for president trump's actions. The president took an oath to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic last week there was a domestic threat at the door of the capitol and he did nothing to stop it. That is why with a heavy heart and clear resolve. I will vote. Yes on these articles of impeachment

We stood here on this floor and sworn oath to defend our constitution against enemies, Foreign and domestic. Three days later. That oath was put to the test when a violent mob tried to break down those doors. To stop us from performing our constitutional duty. This mob was not without a leader on that day, the president told them tow walk to this capital. 16 blocks from where he stood. They were radicalized by his lies and conspiracy theories. He spent months fueling many of which I've heard on this floor. The last week, he needed to say only two words to end the violence. I concede, because that's what leaders do into democracy, because that's what we do in the United States. They put politics aside and put country first. And as I looked our colleagues over on the other side, I wonder how many of them will demonstrate that leadership and join us in holding President Trump accountable. Inciting this deadly attack. How many will uphold our oath and put our country first to defend this constitution from the threat in the White House to do anything less is to turn your back on the oath altogether. Thank you.

Donald Trump lost his bid for re election last November. It was a free and fair election. In fact, President Trump's own election security director called the most secure election in U. S history. But for two months now, Donald Trump has refused to accept the will of the American people. Over and over again. He's told his supporters he didn't really lose. The election was stolen from him and from them And as they grow anger and anger over this perceived injustice, he told him, there was still a way to keep him in power. So is Congress prepared to meet for the sacred ritual of certifying the results of the presidential election? The president made his move. He directed supporters to travel to Washington for a rally to stop the steel. They did. He then once assembled. He had one final request march on the U. S Capitol. Do what it takes to help me. Hold on to power. We will never give up. We will never concede He told him you if you don't fight like hell, he warned, you're not gonna have a country anymore.

And tried to end our country's 234 year experiment in democracy as the Trump family and White House aides watched gleefully on television. They search the halls of this building for the vice president, who they came to hang for treason. They overran the office of the speaker who they came to assassinate. They sought above all else to seize control of our government in the name of Donald Trump. Let that sink in. The terrorists stormed this building plan to hang the vice president killed the speaker and topple our government. They took down the American flag and replaced it with a trump flag.

Black face down there in Virginia have the nickname Kun Man in medical school and a picture of you in blackface. In your medical school yearbook. And you're fine. You're absolutely fine. No consequences to you whatsoever. Isn't it? Amazing how he has been rehabilitated Governor Black face down there in Virginia. It's like it never even happened. Kind of funny and his. His lieutenant governor was accused by two different women Quite credibly. I would add of rape. And he has announced that he is running for governor. There's no shame in the Democratic Party because to really have shame you have to have consequences. That's why these Democrats can be so shameless because there are no consequences. Jamie Raskin should have said Madam Speaker. I know you want to make me They impeachment manager. But I There's gonna be a lot of problems because in 2017, I did exactly what were, you know, yelling about Republicans having done? Maybe somebody else would be a better choice. But there's there's no shame anymore. Because there's no constant no consequences for that. There was no consequences for Jamie Raskin on no basis whatsoever, objecting to the electors from Florida. Done. So he has no shame. Now he will be out there He will be on all the Sunday shows. He will become a liberal media that we're not all the Sunday shows he won't go anywhere near Fox. But that's because he's brave and principled. And confident in the case that he can present but I kid, of course, but there's no consequences for him. So he has no reason to have shame. None of these people will ever face consequences so they have no reason. Have shame Chuck Schumer's railing in the past and Democrats railing in the past about the new no fly list. Doesn't matter because who's going to call him out? Maybe a Fox news reporter? Well, there's a very easy way to insulate yourself from that. Don't go on Fox News. That's it. And you would think in times like this if the Times are what the Democrats portray them as his old times of unbridled turmoil, unprecedented dangers and threats to our democracy. One would think That our political leaders our elected political leaders would try to communicate with his many people is humanly possible. Not just their own choir, but you know, and like we need to explain to all of the country and you could reach a huge swath of the country on Fox. You can reach half the country on MSNBC and CNN. You can reach the other half of the country on Fox Democrats aren't going on Fox. Why? Because they don't want to reach out and explain anything to the other half of the country. They want to condemn the other half of the country. They wish ill on the other half of the country. They don't need to consult the ruled just shut up and be ruled. This is what democracy looks like. No, it's not quite the opposite..

When Americans go to bed tonight, they're lasting memory should not be a Congress overrun by rioters. It must be a resolute Congress conducting healthy debate. We may not disagree on a lot in America. But tonight you must show the world that we will respectfully but thoroughly carry out the most basic duties of democracy. We will continue with the task that we have been sent here to do. We will follow the Constitution and the law on the process for hearing valid concerns. About election integrity will do it With respect. We will respect your opinion who respect what you say, and we're willing to listen to it. I think the nation will be better for it on both sides of the aisle must show the country the mob did not win. We have a job to do it. Let's do it with pride. And let's be better when the sun rises tomorrow. With that I yield back Madam Speaker. Kevin McCarthy. These remarks by Matt Dates of floor together to extend our grace and our kindness and our concern for a colleague who has experienced just an insurmountable amount of grief with his family, and I want all of our fellow Americans watching to know that we did that. Because we care about each other and we don't want bad things to happen to each other, and our heart hurts when they're due. Now, I'm sure they're plenty folks of there who don't like me too much, and they're few you that I don't care for too much, But if anybody had been hurt today, it would have been even more of a catastrophe than we already saw. And I think that's an important point for the country. Another important point for the country is that this morning, President Trump explicitly called for demonstrations and protests to be peaceful. He was farm You can moan and groan. But he was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left wing riders were this summer when we saw violence sweep across this nation.

Very little association with if Mike Collins goes back and looks in the files, I believe he'll find that they turned down. A young man named Rob would all for a job back in 1994 wasn't that didn't try to get a good mentor ship from from John Lewis. I just did meet the John Lewis Bar Act at that time, but my experience with him has been biblically based, Its so many have, but mine has been I let the Children come to me. Do not hinder them for two such belongs the kingdom of God, I If I could arrange it would walk down the steps behind John as he was going down the Capitol steps after a vote because Children from all over the country would come running up. Mr. Lewis. Mr. Lewis just wanted to say, Say hello. Whether it was the steps of the Capitol, the busiest airport in the world at Hartsfield International or anywhere in between. I never once I saw John in too much of a hurry with too much on his mind to take a time to make sure the next generation understood. What happened in the last generation and the difference they could make for yet another generation story's already been told staff members who say the only thing they want to do on Capitol Hill is meet Mr Lewis before they before they leave time and time again. That's the story of Vinny Georgia member because growing up Mr Lewis was Mr Lewis. They always says, Call me, John, but he's always Mr Mr Lewis. I always will be So much of the story that we have heard told about John Tonight. Madam speaker has been about John the fighter. It's so meaningful to me that the other half the stories we've heard tonight are about John be embraced her. We have plenty of fighters in this institution, and we have our fair share of embrace er's in this institution. We don't have as many folks who are every bit as good And embracing as they are at fighting. We will miss Johns leadership in that respect in the great state of Georgia. Madam Speaker on We will miss him here in this institution. I want to thank my colleagues for coming out tonight.

Madam Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days in which to revised in extended remarks on the topic of tonight's Special Order speech, without objection, so ordered live coverage of the House of Representatives. On C SPAN radio. This is Catherine Park of Massachusetts. Madame Speaker. What a privilege. It has been not only to serve with John Lewis, but to be witnessed tonight to the remembrances of our icon, The Peacemaker, the Justice Seeker Congressman John Robert Lewis. Personally, I never got used to working with John Lewis and I struggled. You call him, John? I met him right after I got sworn in in a special election near the chair, which he often sat. I was completely tongue tied. And whether it was a casual Hello, walk from the back import to the capital with votes or planning. A sit in every single interaction with John was profound. John knew oppression and he knew racial violence. He had been beaten, clubbed spat on and denigrated. John had experienced the worst forms of bigotry. He had seen the worst in people, and yet it steeled his determination, and it deepened his faith. John Lewis. Is the kindness man I've ever known love, compassion, integrity with the hallmarks of everything he did big or small. And like so many of you I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Selma on several occasions with John and walk the Civil Rights Trail. Tio here John Lewis, speak on the Edmund Pettus Bridge is transformative. And that bridge is an unusual structure. It has a steep rise is that comes up. It flattens in the middle, and then there's a steep descent. And I could imagine John Lewis as I saw him speak from that bridge. Being a young man leading with Jose Williams a column of 600 marchers and getting to the middle of that bridge and for the first time being able to see what awaited done. The Sea of state troopers of angry crowds. I'm sure he could feel the violence in the air like electricity. But John did not turn back. He did not falter in the face of hatred, end of violence he was fortified. By the moral clarity of why he was watching, marching to ensure that every American had that right to vote, and we know what happen. We know they were beaten, trampled and gassed. But they reconvened and march to Montgomery and made the Civil Rights Act the law of the land, and today we find ourselves again in this country. In the middle of the bridge, and we can see the danger ahead. We can see those who seek to divide this country suppressed the vote and cut off opportunity. While John Lewis cannot physically lead us across that bridge, he has taught us what to do. Many of us have referenced what would Be the last words for Us to hear from John Lewis. And he spoke as always inspirational e about the true sorrow he felt for the soul of America that in the wake of the brutal murder of George Floyd, we were not in a better place. And that those poisonous toxic roots of slavery still entangled our institutions and our nation. But he also said to us that he had never been more optimistic, watching the peaceful protestors across this country. Assemble and he told us as he always did to be bold to not be weary..

A Banana Republic: Pelosi unloads on Trump over tear-gassing of protesters outside White House

"It's been a week and a day since four Minneapolis police officers were implicated in the death of George Floyd setting off protests around the world they have ranged from somber and reverent to violent and explosive last night as a seven PM curfew neared in Washington DC the National Guard and park police officers fired tear gas and set off a flash bang explosives to push out a peaceful crowd of demonstrators that had assembled in a park across from the White House this after president trump delivered remarks where he threatened to deploy the U. S. military if states and local governments are not able to put an end to any violence immediately given the gravity of the moment we've asked one of the leaders of a co equal branch of government the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and she's with us now madam speaker thank you for joining us I'm sorry for the circumstances but thank you for coming nice marked in fortunate circumstances most unfortunate just when we thought we had seen it all of this president last night he crossed another threshold of undermining our democracy that the federal forces would be used to disperse a crowd be using Billy clubs and tear gas tank system the status of banana Republic to make way for the president to come out and to threaten and all along the point of the U. S. military I was gonna ask you about that because they're they're the fact is there has been violence in cities across the country do you feel that the president's threats to call out the military are warranted and if if not is there anything Congress can or should do I don't think the president calling out the military are warranted I think that there are by and large have been a peaceful demonstrations in large numbers across the country there have been some violence and there's no place for that in any of our expressions of concern that Americans people want to make and violence must be addressed but there is no reason for the U. S. military could be called out for this let's talk about the the role of Congress right now does Congress have any role in this if you find this unacceptable other members disagree that it's unacceptable is there any role in addressing it well there has to be and and I'm very proud of the work that our congressional black caucus has done over time this is a terrible thing that has happened but it's not the first time it's happened it's been a pattern so they're making determinations about what legislation will use to go forward whether that's a comprehensive bill or it's a series of bills but that will all be taking place in the very near future can you identify at the current moment though a perk priority for something that would work for example changing immunity laws for police or perhaps limiting funding or condition funding for federal departments and an effort to make some reforms can you identify any concrete change you are willing to embrace and push for at the moment of the immunity laws are very important and that would be a priority along with holding funding yes but there are things that are very common and people understand very clearly like racial profiling that has to stop on the use of force and in the manner in which it was use whatever form you want their different descriptions of it that our colleagues are revealing as to what will be the most effective and universal but let me just say that this is a four hundred year old which challenge more than that four hundred and one year old challenge before we let you go I can't help but remember that your brother Thomas your beloved brother whom unit lost not long ago it was mayor of Baltimore during in nineteen sixty eight rights is there something that you feel you learned from his experience that is guiding your feelings and thoughts now in terms of my brother Tommy and what happened at that time my brother was a big civil rights leader and one of the things that just discouraged him from continuing in politics with the disrespect that was shown by many and the community there too that are to cardinal who was a civil rights advocate and so to see at that time something that was new in our lives that we would see a church would disrespect the archbishop it was a really an awakening as to how deep some of this racism goes that's a speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi madam speaker thank you so much for speaking with us today thank you

Congress no alternative we stand here today because the president's continuing abuse of his power has left us no choice to do nothing would make ourselves complicit in the president's abuse of his I. office the public trust and our national security the president's misconduct is as simple and as terrible as this for president trump solicited a foreign nation Ukraine to publicly announce investigations into his opponent and a baseless conspiracy theory promoted by Russia to help his reelection campaign president trump of use the power of his office by conditioning to official acts to get Ukraine to help his reelection the release of hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid that nation desperately needed at a White House meeting with an ally trying to fend off Russian aggression in so doing he undermined our national security and jeopardized the integrity of our next election.

"Thank you madam speaker over the last several months the gate of committees of the house have been engaged in an impeachment enquiring into president Donald trump's efforts to solicit foreign interference in the two thousand twenty elections efforts at compromise our national security and threaten the integrity of our elections throughout this enquiring he has attempted to conceal the evidence from Congress and from the American people our president holes the ultimate public trust when he betrays that trust and puts himself before country endangers the constitution he endangers our democracy and the endangers our national security the framers of the constitution prescribed a clear remedy for presidents who so violated their oath of office that is the power of impeachment today in service to our duty to the constitution and to our country the house committee on the judiciary is introducing two articles of impeachment charging the president of the United States Donald J. trump with committing high crimes and misdemeanors the first article is for abuse of power it is an impeachable offense for the president to exercise the powers of his public office to obtain an improper personal benefits while ignoring or in engineering the national interest that is exactly what president trump did when he solicited and pressured Ukraine to interfere in our two thousand twenty presidential election thus damaging our national security undermining the integrity of the next election and violating his oath to the American people these actions moreover are consistent with president trump's previous invitations of foreign interference in our two thousand sixteen presidential election and when he was caught when has investigated and opened an impeachment enquiring president trump engaged in unprecedented categorical and indiscriminate defiance of the impeachment enquiring this gives rise to the second article of impeachment for obstruction of Congress here too we see a familiar pattern and president trump's misconduct a president who declares himself above accountability above the American people and above Congress's power of impeachment which is meant to protect against threats to our democratic institutions that is house good committee chairman Jerry Nadler the intelligence committee outlining the two articles of impeachment against president Donald Trump for just the fourth time in US history.

"Prepared to close for us I gentleman from Oklahoma madam speaker a if are you myself such time as I may consume them is nice thank you madam speaker now figure if we defeat the previous question I will amend the resolution to ensure transparency for the American people my men will do three very simple things firstly will require the chairman of the permanent select committee on intelligence to publicly release the transcripts of all depositions and interviews in a timely manner to allow any necessary redactions to protect classified or sensitive information my colleagues on the other side have been operating in secret and behind closed doors they've been violating standing house rules by preventing member access to documents let alone sharing anything with the people that elected them to serve second my amendment that requires the Intel chairman to transfer all records or materials including exculpatory records or materials to the Judiciary Committee the Germans instructed to again make the necessary redactions to protect any classified or sensitive information in contrast to the democratic majorities resolution lets the chairman choose what information he will share and finally my member requires the intelligence committees records and reports as well as any material receive from any other committee involved be made available at least seventy two hours prior to the Judiciary Committee considering any articles of impeachment or other recommendations the resolution before us today does absolutely nothing to guarantee that the American people will see this vital information the procedures my democratic colleagues set up for this impeachment inquiry are fundamentally unfair and fundamentally partition they rejected due process they reject minority rights and they reject adequate public disco disclosure the American people will not respect the process that's not fair madam speaker I urge the house to reject this measure and I urge the house to insist on bipartisan procedures that respect the rights of the minority and the right of due process with that madam speaker I yield one minute to the distinguished Republican leader Mr McCarthy of California Tom call the ranking Republican on the house rules committee I thank the gentleman for yielding madam speaker elections have consequences well for all Americans use their vote to choose who will work for them so I ask you all a simple question specially to my colleagues is that what is happening here today we gathered these final moments before we depart for a week to fund our government to pay our troops we gathered today to prove a new trade deal well we gather to debate the critical national security issues regarding China are Iran well that answer would be unanimously no we are not working for the American people those items would resemble the achievements of a productive Congress a Congress to truly works for the people but you know what this Congress counts this Congress records is more subpoenas then laws that's the legacy it is not just devoid of solutions for the American people it is now abusing its power to discredit democracy by using secret interviews as selective leaks tray the president's legitimate actions as an impeachable offense Democrats are continuing their permanent campaign to under mine is legitimacy the last three years they're pretty term in the president's guilt they have never accepted the voters choice to make him president so for thirty seven days and counting they have run an unprecedented undemocratic unfair investigation this resolution today only makes it worse I've heard members on the other side say they promise rights to the president but only if he does what they want that's the equivalent of saying in the first amendment you have the right to the freedom of speech but you could only say the words I agree with that's what you call due process the amendment offered by my colleague Mister Cole would help correct some of the transparency concerns we have witnessed over the last few weeks but today is more then the fairness of an impeachment process it is about the integrity of our electoral process Democrats are trying to impeach the president because they are scared they cannot defeat him at the ballot box that's not my words that's the words of my colleagues from the other side of the aisle that has offered impeachment three different times this impeachment is not only an attempt to undo the last election is it an attempt to influence the next one as well this is not what Democrats promised when they entered the majority eleven months ago in this chamber we heard from our speaker what we all sat here we heard what the speaker said when she talked about words of optimism in cooperation it was said we would work together to make America stronger more secure and more prosperous we were told our mission was to return the power to the people in fact our new colleagues on the other side of the aisle were sent to Washington with a mandate to do just that so what's happening nothing like that today not long ago Democrats recognize that a partisan impeachment with put politics over people and harm our nation that exact same speaker that talked about cooperation the talked about and promised the American people that they would be different they would be different if you trusted you with the majority you have failed in that promise that's speakers that impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling an overwhelming and body the word of bipartisan I do not think we should go down that path because it divides the country what has changed since those words have been spoken Alexander Hamilton wrote there will always be the greatest danger the decision to use the impeachment power would be driven by partisan Anna mossy instead of real demonstrations of innocence or guilt this sham impeachment by Democrats approving Hamilton right and portrays the speaker's own words I know emotions are high I know members would even run for positions of chair simply on the fact that they would be a better chair for impeachment right after the election when we all stood that day and listen to the words of the speaker of cooperation we all raised their hand the poll the constitution tomorrow is November first we're one year away from an election not just for this house but for the highest office of presidency why do you not trust the people why do you not allow the people to have a voice why in a process that America lends their voice to all of us that you deny us for them is that a mas the reason that high is Hamilton proven correct again there is a moment in time she should rise to the occasion this is that moment this is the moment that history will right history will ask you when you cast this vote when you cast a vote to justify something that has gone on behind closed doors I want you to ask the historian and answer the question what do you know that happened there have you read anything that took place that you just justified what do you believe the definition of due process this what do you think the first amendment is you have the right to have a voice are only the words that you agree with you may get elected in a primary but in a general election your elected to represent the people of America not to deny their voice this house is so much better than what is transforming today I believe everyone who runs for this office runs to solve a problem but when you go back to the American public with the achievement of more subpoenas than Los that is not why you ran that is not why we are here and that's why I agree with my colleague Mister Cole the believes in the power of the people people before politics we believe in no we can do better we believe the speaker when she said about cooperation we believed her when she said if you trusted them with the majority they would be different I guess it's only fitting you check this vote on Halloween I yield back house minority leader Kevin McCarthy.

"I don't think members will want to hear the question again and again and again but let's be absolutely clear <music> in the countries which have a parliamentary question time it has become customary to decry the procedure partisan bear pit which shows politics at its worst reducing parliament which should be a forum for the judicious proposal and sagacious review of legislation to a tacky and undignified pantomime of jeering name-calling grandstanding mattis. The opposition is the mr potato head of his dry in policy building. Accepting robbings government is not accepting well pick it up in two weeks the point of order madam speaker if this is an example of the adults being and for the countries which don't have a parliamentary question time an explanation is probably in order question time is is as the name may very well suggest a designated interval in which members of parliament are invited to interrogate senior ministers including usually usually at a fixed time once a week when parliament is sitting the prime minister question time is usually broadcast live and highlights points all low lights are a staple of broadcast news and in this nine deepak social media australia. One of the countries which does is have a prime minister's question time is looking into reforming it. Australia's parliamentary committee on procedures is considering such tweaks as compelling those on on the receiving end of question time to actually answer the questions one wishes the speak good luck enforcing naps and doing away with the questions known in australia as dorothy dickson named four dorothy dix the american advice columnist rumored to also write letters she replied to dorothy dickson carefully scripted and planted question from the prime minister's own backbench encouraging the leader to reflect with appropriate modesty upon their own supreme cream fitness to govern and how is the government strong economic leadership building stronger economy with the prime minister explained to the house the importance of providing strong economic ladyship to the right jobs and growth in fans to the public servants toiling diligently upon astray lease parliamentary committee on procedures most of the ideas floated thus thus far for reforming question time sound pretty reasonable it would be nice to get a straight answer to a straight question and nobody including really the prime minister benefits from the prime minister being encouraged to agree how bloody marvelous they are and how lucky the country is to have them nevertheless these these reforms should be carefully watched by australians lest they go too far and abolish question time either effectively or actually in in countries which have question time which aside from australia include the united kingdom canada finland japan and new zealand. It's usually the case that politicians by loyd admission both hated and fear it which is of course the best argument for keeping christian time is beyond any serious you style a good thing and every country should have won. This is prime minister's questions and he should try also the question now. I asked him a very specific question. I often a very specific question. Forest caught and most obviously it's opportunity to ask questions for m._p.'s is to put the case of their constituents directly to the nation's leader. This is still useful even when an m._p.

For these reasons and others, I'm strongly opposed to this Bill HR to six and I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to stand up to their constituents priorities. Stanford their priorities and oppose the Bill as well. With that. I reserve the balance of by California, Republican Ken Calvert is the ranking member of the house appropriations subcommittee on the interior. The chair is democrat Betty McCollum reserves. The gentlewoman is recognized. Thank you, Madam speaker. I couldn't agree more with my colleague and the former chair when we were developing the Bill that we had a much superior product as we came out of conference committee. But it's time to move. Forward speaker Ryan did not bring that to the floor. We must move forward and begin our work are important work on on twenty twenty amount speaker, I yield two and a half minutes to the gentlewoman from New York, MS Loy, the chairwoman of the full appropriations committee, the gentlewoman from New York is recognized Madam speaker the Trump's shutdown is now in its twenty first day. It is outrageous that more than eight hundred thousand federal employees are going without pay many of them while they are still. Working and the American people being denied vital services all because the President Trump's demands for a wasteful border. All the they'll be forced today would reopen. The Environmental Protection Agency department of the interior and other critical agencies such as the Indian health service and the chemical safety and has it investigation board. The Trump shutdown has suspended cleanups. Have hazardous materials delayed lifesaving rulemaking to keep toxic chemicals. Like methylene chloride out of American homes. The Trump shutdown threatens the enduring national, natural, beauty and conservation. Efforts of our national parks at trash piles up and the safety of visitors is in question public health and safety should not be political bargaining trips. House Democrats have passed bills to open the government, but the president and the Senate Republicans continue to obstruct into lay instead of working with us to get the people's. Business done. The solution to this crisis is simple pass the bills where we can agree extend funding for homeland security for a month to allow time for negotiation on border, security and immigration policy. I hope that my colleagues across the capital come to this fences and stuff this ridiculous, Trump shutdown. Thank you. The gentlewoman reserves. The gentleman is recognized speaker. I yield as much time as she may consume to the gentleman from Texas. The ranking member of the preparations committing the gentlewoman from Texas is recognized. Thank you. Thank you. Madam speaker today and opposition to HR to sixty six unfortunately, moving this villa cross. The house store will not resolve the partial government shutdown as the president said he will not sign this villain law. It's the job and responsibility of congress to appropriate funds. We list come together to find a solution that will reopen the government and son border security. We need a compromise. It represents the will of both chambers. And the American people by considering the Senate pass versions the appropriations Phil we're eliminating house members involvement in the process. This Bill isn't particular ignores ninety three percent of all house member requests that were included in our Bill, including the fifty amendments that were adopted on the floor. This appropriations Bill for the interior department fails to include the twelve million dollars house members provided to S Geological Survey programs not the earthquake early warning system that saves lives. It also reduces the amount of funds available declared dead and dying trees from FARs to help prevent the kind of devastating wildfires. We saw this year. Twenty one million dollars the part a lot about the National Park Service during a shutdown. This Bill reduces funding for national parks by twenty seven million dollars. These are just a few of the fry authorities of the house that are not included in this Bill before us. Madam speaker Republican stand ready and willing to negotiate with our friends on the other side of the aisle on legislation that includes priorities of both parties in both chambers. That's how this legislative body. And our system of government is designed to work. I want to thank my colleague from California. Mr. Calvert for his efforts today and over the last several months to ensure that the house is voice is heard in this debate. And I yield back the balance my time, the gentlewoman reserves the gentlewoman is recognized. Gentlewoman is recognized Madam speaker. I yield two minutes to the gentlewoman from California MS Liam member of the appropriations committee, the gentlewoman from California is recognized. Thank you, very much Madam speaker, and let me thank Jarome McCollum for her leadership on this issue as we try to get the government open. I rise in strong support of the fiscal two thousand nine hundred nine interior appropriations Bill which provides thirty five billion dollars to partially reopened the government. Now, this Bill would also reopen are beautiful national parks and the Smithsonian museums the situation and our parks right now, it's just not acceptable sixteen thousand park service employees are not working let me repeat that sixteen thousand employees. The National Park Service is losing four hundred thousand dollars a day from this shutdown. Went uncollected garbage also is piling up. Madam speaker, this is this is horrible. It's ridiculous. We need this Bill to reopen. Our parks, our museums and our visitors centers right away, and we need to pass this Bill to keep visitors safe and in the furlough of law enforcement personnel in our national parks matters Pekar. These closings are impacting every district in our nation near my own district for exam. In the beautiful bay area. Muir woods had to close this week. In addition to wreaking havoc on federal workers lives their families their children their livelihood. This Trump shutdown is also having an effect on tourism and the economy. So I urge my colleagues to vote. Yes. On this Bill, and yes to reopening, the government the public deserves this federal workers deserve this contractors deserve this. The parks are museums should be open for visitors to visit and we need to get this government working again. Thank you again. Chairwoman Betty McCollum yield the balance matab. Did you? Live from the floor of the house woman reserves. The gentleman is recognized. Ken Calvert, Republican. I thank the gentleman yield two minutes to the gentleman from Alabama. Mr andrew. The gentleman from Alabama is recognized. Thank you, Madam speaker. Ryan. Thank you ranking member Calvert. And thank you for your leadership on this Bill. Will you pass back in December? And but unfortunately, as you know, I'm rising Madam speaker and opposition of HR to sixty six while we have before us today. However is yet another democrat preparation Bill that fills reflect the house parties this time it ignores ninety three percent of all the house member requests that were -cluded in the house Bill and in the report I'd like to point out just a few of the mini house member parties that were addressed in the House, Republican interior and environment Bill that are not addressed in this current deal compared to the House Republican Bill. This Bill reduces funding for hazardous fuel reduction projects by twenty one million. It also reduces reduces funding for operation and maintenance of the national park system that twenty seven million it does not include any of the Endangered Species Act reforms which are absolutely necessary for the law to work in a practical way. Therefore, Madam speaker rather than spending our time debating Senate passed legislation which fails to reflect any house parties, I asked that the Democrats come to negotiation negotiating table. So we can secure our border. So we can keep America safe. And then we can resolve this partial shutdown that we're now entering all his twenty first day. So I urge my colleagues to oppose this Bill and I yield back the balance in my town, the gentlemen reserves in the gentlewoman is recognized. Thank you Madam chair. The time to pass the twenty nineteen Bill was December of last year. We need to move forward. And my priority is to get the government open to get it back working for the American people on to have the federal employees that are working so hard, and those who are forced to be home to have a paycheck with that Madam speaker. I yield two minutes to the gentlewoman from Florida MS Wasserman Schultz, who's a chair designate the mill con- subcommittee of the appropriations committee democrat, Betty McCollum. The gentlewoman from Florida is recognized. Thank you, ma'am, speaker. And I thank the gentlewoman for yielding. I rise today to urge my colleagues to support this appropriations Bill with provides funding for the department of the interior of the Environmental Protection Agency and related agencies. This Bill would provide vital funding for water infrastructure. Stay drinking water systems, national parks and Everglades restoration projects. We have been locked in a nonsensical shutdown because President Trump continues to insist on his ineffective and offensive border wall scheme while the president and throws a tantrum. People are suffering and our environment is suffering. Many of us have seen the pictures of the piles of garbage. And our environment cannot withstand this onslaught. They are overflowing in many of our national parks. Our national parks of the crown jewels of our nation's natural heritage in two thousand seventeen the national park system through more than three hundred and thirty million visits, including more than ten million in my home state of Florida. These visits are not just from Americans. But also from people all around the world who came to see the natural wonders America has to offer in two thousand seventeen national parks contributed contributed thirty five point eight billion dollars to the nation's economy and six hundred and thirteen million dollars to Florida's economy, and they supported three hundred and six thousand jobs nationwide today, many are closed or short staffed and a diminished law enforcement presence puts the well-being visitors and wildlife at risk. This is not the only major consequence of President Trump congressional Republicans efforts to block funding for the shuttered agencies. That would be restored by this legislation EPA has stopped making inspections of drinking water systems, hazardous waste management sites and chemicals. Abilities during the last long down in twenty thirteen EPA stopped inspecting more than twelve hundred sites of environmental importance in concern. Now more than ever we need the EPA to provide rigorous guidance and support for state drinking water agencies. No one knows this more than the residents of Flint. Michigan whose water is still not safe to drink and closer to my home Floridians face the contamination of their water by harmful fire retardants used at the nearby fire college halting inspections leaves communities like these more vulnerable. These cuts can truly impact the people that we are elected to serve and I urge my colleagues to vote for this Bill that the Senate can once again pass it and government can be reopened with that you back gentleman. Florida yields gentlewoman from Minnesota reserves gentlemen from California's recognized Mr Speaker, I yield four minutes to the gentleman from Idaho. The former chairman of the committee, Mr Simpson John was recognized. I thank the gentleman from California. My good friend for yielding and for the job that he has done as chairman of this interior subcommittee in the past. Let me begin by saying that we all want the government to reopen all on this side all on that side want the government to reopen. We don't agree with the shutdown also want strong border security. I know you all want strong civil water security. We disagree about how to get there. This can both be accomplished with little word called compromised. And I've heard everybody throw around that word quite a bit. And then go back to their hardened positions. And forget what a compromise is. So I looked it up in dictionary. Because I thought maybe I was mistaken about what a compromise is the dictionary says settlement of differences by mutual concessions and agreement to reach reached by adjustment of conflicting and opposing claims and principles by reciprocal modification of demands we can't call for compromise. And then go back to our hardened positions and say, I want everything I want and you get nothing you want. This Bill is not a compromise. If you would bring up the compromise conference bills between the house and the Senate have my support. But that's not what this is. This is the Senate Bill. We have a conference to Bill between the house and the Senate that was prepared to be brought to the floor last year. Never made it bring up that conference report. Unfortunately, by opting, just the Senate Bill, we might not as we might not even have a house chamber. Why have the house chamber? All we're going to do is adopt whatever the Senate decided to do. This Bill as has been mentioned reduces. Funding by one hundred sixty million dollars from the house Bill for Indian country twenty one million dollar reduction from the house gopher has their spills reductions that prevent catastrophic wildfires Twenty-three million reduction from the house Bill on sage grouse funding that is vital to keep species off the off the endangered species list. Twenty seven million reduction from the house Bill for national park funding that is needed to solve the maintenance backlog twelve million dollar reduction from the house Bill for water infrastructure financing act, which is critical financing community water projects, given the enormous backlog that exist for our water system. The Bill also leaves out vital report language directives from the house Bill that were carefully crafted to represent house members priorities, both Republican and democrat priorities. They are being totally ignored with this legislation. And in the end, we all know, this isn't going anywhere. This just a game. And I got to tell you, Mr Speaker..

This Bill would end part of the shutdown that this president his orchestrated and fund the department of agriculture which helps people from going hungry and supports our farmers with the shutdown of the department of agriculture. We're not implementing the farm Bill that we passed here, which means we're not helping increase access to fruits and vegetables through programs like.

"We can't take the chance on this lawsuit being successful. And then wait for a replacement because we've already know we know what the replacement will be the house passed replacement for the portable Care Act from from a few years ago would have resulted in millions of people millions of fewer people with insurance. According to the cost will go up twenty percent. The first year insurance will cover less than it covers now and those with pre-existing conditions will lose their protections. That's what would happen. If this lawsuit is successful. This vote is not about fulfilling our responsibility to act in the best interest of this sport is about fulfilling our responsibility to act in the best interest of the American people. And so I encourage my colleagues to support the resolution and a year back the balance of my time. The general eighty reserves the gentlemen from Oklahoma's recognized. Thank you Madam speaker on like the yield three minutes to my good friend distinguished gentleman from Oregon, Mr. Walden. Who's also, the former chairman of the house energy and commerce committee and current ranking member the gentlemen from Oregon is recognized. Well, thank you, Madam speaker. And I thank my colleague from Oklahoma. And I rise in opposition to title three of the Democrats rules package, which is you've heard paves the way for speaker Pelosi to unilaterally take legal action on behalf of the entire house of representatives and the ongoing court case rounding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and any future court cases on the ACA as she sees fit. That's a pretty big blank. Check. Madam speaker? First of all object to this vote on the grounds of pure common sense. The authority we're voting on today was already given to the speaker last week under title one of the Democrats rules package. You can look it up. It's right there beginning on page thirty you'll find it after the provisions to make it easier for House Democrats to increase tax. Axes and to set up automatic debt. Limit increases not to mention speaker Pelosi has already filed three motions to the court intervened. In the case since last week's vote moreover democratic attorneys general from intervening states are already defending the law in the case, and the judge's ruling is already been stayed and appealed so this is an unnecessary waste of time. Paper and ink, and I can only assume part of the reason for today's show vote is to distract from Democrats real radical views on healthcare. Madam speaker? Where's the single payer thirty trillion dollar government takeover of health care Bill, which ends employer and union sponsored healthcare and forces the hundred and fifty eight million Americans who get their healthcare through their job into a one size fits all government run plan. A majority of House Democrats supported that proposal or one very like it in the last congress. When will they keep their promise to bring that plan up for a vote? Madam speaker today's vote to repeat the authorities given the speaker just last week is. Just for show. It's really not a serious, exercise and legislating. Meanwhile, last week Republicans brought a powerful but simple to the floor. There would have actually called on this body to legislate on something. We all could agree needs to be done. And that is to lock in protections for patients with pre existing conditions. But unfortunately, a partisanship Democrats voted that down there. Fire urged my colleagues to reject this unnecessary political theater today vote. No. So we can work together. Expeditiously to guarantee pre existing condition protections for all Americans and do so in a manner that can withstand judicial scrutiny with that Madam speaker.
