You've been accused of cheating at monopoly. I heard Adam Schiff starts to try to make that case better but that has not been make that has not been the lead way. The Democrats have made their case that been a mistake. I don't think it's been a mistake. I think there's a lot of complexity around the whole investigation. A lot of details witnesses and the like. I think. Now's the time to simplify it. That's what the book is about. It's the simple definitive guide to why the president needs to be impeached in a begins with a simple po-point what's impeachment about in seventeen eighty seven. It was put in there. A lot of founders. Didn't want it in the constitution. They put it in simple reason. which is they said? We're worried about a president. WHO's self deals?

They haven't made their legal argument or they haven't made their political argument. Haven't changed any opinions on the jury of the people or the jury of the Senate and that so you believe it's only a political case that they should both I think from a legal standpoint and a political standpoint no opinions have changed on the jury on either side no matter what Nancy Pelosi said Ed no matter the arguments that Adam shift and others presenting and books the everyone's heard the arguments on network. TV I mean gavel to gavel coverage. Nothing has changed. A taxicab driver told me last night. Move on do the work of Congress work on immigration work on healthcare work on foreign policy also work on the deficit.

It's almost getting to the deplorable thing if you disagree with the conclusion that people have you can't go in salt them even more. They're not going to change their opinion. It on what they've heard so far. Let me play look. Republicans are in lockstep on what they believe they learned from the hearings tick listen. I think it's very clear there was no quid pro quo.

You don't think Komo urged to disagree with President trump right now in public and fairness. Do you think that would be a good idea of him if he disagreed with the president. I think he's telling the truth and I think You know if you'RE GONNA IF YOU'RE GONNA try to remove the president of the United States from from office unique concrete evidence and and and the other person on the part of the so-called quid pro quo denies that there was a quid pro quo and also let me just apt interject this everything that you felt was.

The rule of law means that the commander in chief of our Armed Forces could not be held to a lower standard than our his subordinates. The rule of law is more important than the tenure in office of any elected official. If you see proof in the Senate trial that this President United States violated the rule of law. Would that be enough for you well. I'm nowhere close to seeing. That approve. Let me say this we. We learned some political lessons in the impeachment of Bill Clinton but but give us this. There were Democrats who voted for impeachment. Speech may also in the House of Representatives and a judge in Arkansas had found as has found as a matter of fact the President Bill Clinton had committed perjury. I fell any in almost every state. So the evidence was was pretty overwhelming not to mention the. Take the advantage of of a young employee. You have a lot of military bases you have a lot of military constituents curious we're GONNA have a large may have a large debate about this. Who should decide side? WHO's a seal? The president added states our fellow seals. You're probably aware of the controversy involving this chief. Chief Gallagher here should the president short-circuit this or not. Would you like to see the make this decision and I think the president as commander in chief can make this decision you can legally make it should he though I feel very comfortable with making it feel very comfortable with what he's done on the other two cases so I'm with him they're it just don't holidays to me.
