Trump second impeachment trial scheduled to begin Tuesday.
House delivers Trump impeachment article to Senate, setting stage for trial
"The second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is underway after House managers delivered the article of impeachment to the U. S Senate Monday evening, charging him with incitement of insurrection over the deadly attack on the U. S. Capitol, Donald John Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors. By inciting violence against the government of the United States. Maryland Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin serving his house impeachment manager and reading the charge on the Senate floor, But the trial won't begin in earnest for another few weeks, a pause allowing more time for preparation. Some Republicans say it shouldn't be happening at all. Now that he's out of office. This can happen. Anytime of political party has a majority. And there's no time limit. There's no statute of limitations. That would mean that the new precedent set is that next time Republicans were in power they could reach back and impeach a former Democratic president, Texas Senator John Cornyn, also taking issue with the push to prevent Trump from ever seeking office again if convicted by the Senate. But Democrats say the former president must be held accountable and the trial will move forward even is President Biden tries to accelerate the fight against Cove it and find common ground on more covert relief open to changes in his proposed package. I prefer these things to be bipartisan, because I'm trying to generate some Census and take sort of the How can I say it vitriol out of all of this, But he's already suggesting that just because of Bill passes along party lines doesn't mean there isn't unity. In addition to being a source of friction, the impeachment trial will take time and conviction would take much more than a party line vote in the divided chamber days after January. 6th. It did look like there was no mentum. Among Republican senators to convict President Trump. John Roberts is co anchor of America reports on the Fox News Channel. The White House was concerned that the numbers could be high enough for their actually to be a conviction. Which would have meant that 17 Republican senators would have had to vote in favor of convicting President Trump. But since then, the mo mentum toward a conviction among Republicans has waned to a large degree, and now the momentum is actually swinging the other way. Pendulum has now moved toward declaring this process to be unconstitutional. This idea of holding a Senate trial for a president who is no longer in office and adding to that is this idea that the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will no longer be presiding over the trial that will now fall to the Senate. President Pro TEM Senator Pat Leahy from Vermont, all of which taken together adds to this growing idea in the Republican Party that this is an illegitimate process that this is being done on Lee for political reasons. It's on Lee being done to punish President Trump and really doesn't hold any validity in terms of whether or not President Trump will continue to hold office. What about the big picture here? And the political calculus for Mitch McConnell, who's now the Senate minority leader again? Um, because some analysts have pointed out that he seems to be treating this impeachment differently than the last one. You know, as if he feels it's more credible or at least that's how it seemed initially. Um are they reading too much into that? Or is he you know, does he have sort of an ulterior? Agenda here. Mitch McConnell was going further than I've ever seen him before, in terms of what might happen if there were to be a in impeachment trial in the Senate, suggesting that he was really trying to make a break and President Trump But in the days that followed that, really now, the weeks that followed that McConnell seems to be taking a different tack. I have been told by sources in Congress that McConnell, Maybe one of the people whose coalescing around this idea that this is impeachment trial is not constitutional. I don't want to say that he thinks it's a legitimate but not constitutional, and that the president has already left office. I think there's been a bit of a change in position for Mitch McConnell. What about pressure on the new president to sort of not interfere and let this trial happen? However, the Senate wants that to happen. Because it's clearly been at least slow down portions of his agenda just as he's trying to do as much as he can as fast as he can. Right. There's no question that a Senate trial Is going to affect Joe Biden's agenda and how quickly he gets his confirmations die. How quickly he could get some of his signature legislation through that, said Joe Biden is a you know an alumnus understand it. He knows that the Senate Act is an independent body. It's been said that there are 100 presidents that inhabit the Senate. I mean, clearly they are of their own minds. So for a president to say, Well, this is how I think the Senate should do. It is not gonna fly very well on Capitol Hill. So is a student as an alumnus. Understand it. Biden. I think his wisely stepping back to say, Look, this is your deal. You handle it. You handle it The way you will atone east in the public statements. I wouldn't be surprised if behind the scenes in private. He is raising some concerns about what might happen in the next few weeks in the Senate, but but clearly he's he's taking a step back to say. San. It's an independent body. I'm not about to tell them what to do, because if he were, he would likely get some blowback from them, and he definitely needs to send it if he wants to get his agenda troop I know you've covered the White House for a long time help big of a contrast is the start of this administration compared to the start of the Trump administration. Yeah, it's markedly different from from from out of the gate with the Trump administration. We were going 100 Miles an hour on the roller coaster and that never stopped. Even if you look to the very first briefing was Sean Spicer, where Spicer came out and and ripped the press for allegedly lying about the numbers of people who went to the inauguration all the way up until the last press conference from Keighley back in it, they were contentious, combative affairs. That really sort of was the hallmark of the Trump administration that it was a contentious, combative administration. This administration is much more located. Briefings are cordial. I don't want to say they're collegial, but they're definitely cordial, even though I think Jen Psaki is getting some more pointed questions, and she wasn't the first couple of great things, and I think that that's the way that this administration is going to progress. It will be a kind of a Let's get business done type of administration, as opposed to this grand show that President Trump in that shed, though I think that Joe Biden does face some headwinds in terms of getting his agenda through because he is beset with a number of different crises, and now he owns them. He's the president.

Senator John Cornyn to better guest to talk to a in a short term over the two big stories in this country first off on his arrest. What do they say? Then the documents they say that stone was. Conspiring with quickey links the indictments is not charge. This was conspired with WikiLeaks. But it seems to indicate that he knew about the hacks. It also says the Trump aide charged in the mullahs probe had had multiple contacts between Trump associates and Russia during the campaign. So we'll see what they say that Roger stone new. They also said that he lied to congress obstructed Justice. And you know, that he also say conspired to tell somebody else. To not tell the truth to the special counsel. I'm also wondering is it necessary to have a big raid was a necessary to get Well, Paul Manafort outta bed wasn't necessary. As Roger stone, a bike risk couldn't you've said, can you report to the courtroom and made sure he showed? But what does it mean for the whole investigation, Dan Abrahams on ABC cut one? This is the first indictment where it becomes clear that the special counsel believes that the Trump campaign knew about the hacks before this material was made public and remember they're one of the key charges in this case, so far is of the Russians engaged in the hacks, and this is related to WikiLeaks and the key phrases. I think from this indictment are that a senior Trump official was directed to contact stone about additional releases and about future was allies. Yeah. So we're still speculating, but this is a Trump I wouldn't say adviser, but he's a longtime friend. He was the one who always urging him to get in. But almost immediately after Trump declared next thing, you know, Dan, Abrahams as Dan Abrahams said stone was there, but he was never on scene. I mean, he wasn't in Trump Tower. He was talking to the president. But he wasn't part of the campaign. The question is the tech. I think they're talking about your own Coursey. Did they tell you? Did he tell Drome Coursey not to tell the truth the to coverage tracks? Did you not tell the truth to investigators? Keep in mind to off people are still speculating, but I think the Trump campaign's gotta worry as Rudy Giuliani said maybe craftily over the weekend. And last week. The president in collude, but he's not saying that anybody else in and around the president did that's a lot different than we thought a year ago. But true the dissemination matters Joe Lockhart says this cut five Roger stone is the person who is at ground zero of Donald Trump's political career. He's the guy who planted the idea you can be president of the United States. And my guess is is a very small circle of people who could be the one that we're talking about here who did Rogers and Donald Trump is in that circle. Wilsey was he directing Roger stone where they're getting the heads up. You know, there's a heads up on something's coming down. Whether it's a s an opponent's divorce and allegations that are coming through. You have no obligation to go forward and say, this is what's happening. And this is what's going to be taking place. But what I do say what bothers me about the whole Trump all the Trump people that we had nothing to do with Russia. If the president came out early says I had nothing to do with Russia. But I have no idea. What all these other people were doing I just know that Hillary Clinton was using a private server, it made herself vulnerable and Podesta got caught in a fishing expedition. And when he did that these emails became public, and it hurt the campaign, but it didn't mean these emails were illegitimate. It didn't mean they were made up. This is really was going on. This is what Sanders thought this is Debbie Wasserman Schultz found out. This is what Hillary Clinton was doing. We want the other big story. And I want to take too much time away from Jonathan Turley hill break it down from the legal perspective was day thirty five now the shutdown. I don't see any leverage for the president. And I think it's unjust. I think the prisoner box himself in the middle of December. I think he's one hundred percent, right. We need money for wall. I think he's one hundred percent right to listen to the experts and say, you don't need a big cement wall. You need slats in certain areas, you need improvements in others and other areas, you need just technology. But Nancy Pelosi says, okay, I'm not dealing at all I'm gonna pretend zip. I didn't vote twice before for fencing across the border to pretend that the president isn't giving me wiggle room. I'm gonna pretend that the opera out. There did not involve DACA, which you said you go to bat for on a daily basis. So they were two boats yesterday in the Senate, and it's clear both didn't pass weren't expected to pass. But clearly, evidently, reportedly promote people sources axios to the hill behind the scenes. The Republicans are getting restless, they they basically lead vice president Pence have it and Mitch McConnell habit. Why did you box in here? These innocent people can't work this. The speaker of the house is gotten all the leverage on justifiably where is the way out here. Here's the president from the Oval Office cut eighteen. You need the wall. We can all play games. And we can all talk about technology. I know more about technology than anybody. You don't have the wall. The technology does the work you need to walk. A lot of the technology is put on top of the wall. That's how you see the cameras and everything else. I mean, they literally put the technology. They fascinated to the wall, then you have drone technology. So meanwhile, Nancy posts, he's just not budging. And I think the thing that's going to make her move is if Democrats who got in this job who won their house seats in in red districts are going to rise up and say, we really look petty. This is nothing to do with us. It's about you cut twenty one. This shutdown is not a glitch. It is a crisis that the president alone created and at the president alone can end Republicans in congress have been accomplices to the president's irresponsibility and just a Norring the consequences of his action either. He doesn't know he doesn't care. No. It's you you don't care. You don't care about funding the border, you don't care about the border security. There's legitimate crisis happening. We see the families coming across. We see the drugs coming through. We know it's through the most of the port of entry. But the wall the barrier allows you to funnel it in a certain area provide additional technology there, she's pretending as if there is no debate. She does not sit down and to give and take with anybody that wants answers. She just sits down with people that want to kiss her bought Mercedes slap says the president's not giving in but has to consider other options cut thirty. It's clear that congress. We're not getting to a solution there. So yes, the president is seriously considering other options that includes declaring a national emergency. Obviously he's looking into these legal options that is something he can do. And what is so troubling is the fact is yes, he's been able to keep the Republicans unified in the Senate. Obviously we needed the sixty votes mansion came through. But no other. What is? Lost some Republicans. Listen is a crisis time on all sides in Washington. I think the president's right here. I just don't know where his leverage is. How does he get it? Let me know one eight six six eight seven six six nine the Russia investigation. First indictment in months, it happened to Roger stone the closest yet to the president United States. Don't tell me Matt aboard anything to do with it. Or all these oligarchs have any role in it. This is the guy that could cause trouble. What is Jonathan Turley think? And not think back in a moment with expert, then Senator John Cornyn big day. Don't move giving. You everything you need to know is Brian Kilmeade. No. Now, the three big things you need three three. It is over after thirty five days. The house has passed a measure that has now been signed by the president to reopen. The federal government for three weeks while border security funding is figured out ending the longest government shutdown in US history. Eight months after catching fire in the middle of a parade. Disney's mullets float has returned to the magic kingdom. Blunt indictment earlier today, former Donald Trump adviser Roger stone's seems to have lost the support from one his heroes. Former president Richard Nixon, the Nixon foundation tweeting out today this morning's widely circulated characterization of Roger stone as a Nixon campaign aide or adviser is a gross misstatement. The shutdown is over. I will sign a Bill to open our government for three weeks until February fifteenth in first thing Monday morning for the very latest on long-term deal negotiations, and what it means to you.

"Responsibility are flying. And the prospects of finding a quick solution to the crisis or of coming together to pass significant legislation when it ends remain grim now with Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, making his first significant legislative overture to break, the stalemate Sunday, the outcome might rest on the capacity of house speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Mr. McConnell to find a way to bridge the political divide between them their parties and the White House, but as congressional reporter Emily Cochran at the New York Times says their new relationship is not off to a good start. So the two of them, obviously, different backgrounds. Sides of the ideological spectrum. And they've often found the belts on opposite sides of several issues in the shutdown is the latest one day worked on different side of congress, obviously in different ideological sides. For decades, they have a working relationship, but it hasn't always gone. Well. That was interesting to read to in your piece that you said they have actually accomplished stuff before. Sometimes it's hard to remember that one day they get bogged down in the in things like this shutdown. Almost two decades ago they were both top members on their respective appropriations committee, and they work together on spending bolster foreign operations. Then another infant has an eight when congress associated the economic recovery package McConnell called her quote extraordinary. She was equally complimentary of his leadership, then but in recent years, they've certainly gone head-to-head speaker Pelosi with not very complimentary of the tax overhaul that just went through and later McConnell had issues with the Affordable Care Act when it was first introduced and several other parts of the democratic agenda when President Barack Obama was an office and later Pelosi. In charge about. So do these two generally dislike each other is this just politics? I think it's hard to say they they have a working relationship. They just happened to consistently end up on opposite sides of the issue. It's also worth noting. They tend to work with the other litter there, for example, speaker Pelosi spend more time working with Senator Chuck Schumer her democratic counterpart in the Senate and Kevin McCarthy who's the Republican leader in the house? But this time they're both leaders of their respective chamber. So it remains to be seen how they work together looking forward speak with Emily Cochran congressional reporter at the New York Times. She's got a piece called McConnell and Pelosi heavy fraught relationship, the shutdown hasn't helped anybody expecting that things will improve relationship wise. So that things can get done over the next two years that the question we've asked as reporters on Capitol Hill many times. In the last few weeks, and it's unclear. What what's next the first step is to get through the shutdown to end this impact? And even with the new proposal from the president from leader McConnell Pelosi is again going to introduce a Bill to reopen. The government herself this week. It remains fifty what is actually going to get through. And until that happens. Everything else is kind of at a standstill boy what about something like infrastructure, which people from both parties have expressed at least in some way, shape or form some interest remained abusing. But lawmakers are hopeful about they nonpartisan issue we need the public works overhaul. But again without a clear way out of the shutdown. They can't really get started working on it and going this long without any kind of compromise on reopening. The government doesn't bode well for any kind of compromise going forward. So there remained some optimism. But we'll have to see how the shutdown in coded Senator John Cornyn from Texas at the very tail into your story. He said, we'll figure something out. We always do don't seem very close at this point. That's the kind of optimism we asked about an infrastructure Bill or some of the legislative priority. Take on for example, the new North American trade deal or raising the federal spending limits or a plan to lower drug prices. There's still hope that something will get done with the shutdown. It's still unclear how exactly we're going to get out of that. But they haven't quite given up yet. Emily, emily.

"Cory Booker as you heard. Senator John Cornyn taking him to task for that. Cory Booker said Brett Kavanagh is such a bad human being. That I'm going to release these documents that were for my eyes only. I've got to do something more. He's saying then just cast my own no vote against him. So the way this works is. They've announced that they're going to vote against him. The Cory booker's and Feinstein's is announced he's going to vote against him. He's made that very clear Schumer all of them. But they still want more documents. Well, how does that work? And now he announces I you know, what I'm going to release. These confidential documents. And Charles Grassley to the chairman said if you release these documents you are violating everything that is senatorial privilege, she said fan. I don't know if he wanted to get kicked out of the Senate, so he can announce his campaign for president rat offer. What Senator Ted Cruz is our guest Senator what exactly was do you think Cory Booker was trying to get kicked out of the Senate or is he just trying to get attention? I think it's all twenty twenty presidential politics. You've got Cory Booker and Kamla Harris, they sit right next to each other and their e. Doing doing backflips trying to outdo each other for who who can be more outraged who can get more support from the extreme left. And and it's all just the political posturing for the next presidential election. Were you surprised hearing, Cory Booker talk? Like this not really Corey I actually get along quite well. He can be very nice and pleasant carving when he was the mayor of Newark, he actually had a he was not a crazy lefty as mayor in in fact, on on the issue of school choice. He demonstrated real courage as as as the mayor. But but now that he's in the Senate. It's it's clear he and a whole bunch of other people are brighter position to run for Senate. And so in the cabin all hearings, especially you're you're saying a battle of the Democrats who they're trying to appeal to the extreme left wing. And and as the scores of protesters have demonstrated the extreme left-wing are really really angry. They're consumed by hatred for Donald Trump. And and so the the the way they think that they should appeal is is just to. Two two. Put on a bunch of the after. So I think that's what we've seen the last several days Burt Reynolds data earlier today. I don't know if you were aware of that I saw that. How would you rate? Your crush of Sally field in nineteen seventy seven as a eight or nine year old young man on zero two hundred. Yeah. She was pretty awesome. And Burt Reynolds was about as cool as anyone can be. Do you see yourself as the Burt Reynolds of the United States Senate? I you know, I wish I is there a character from smokey the bandit that you see yourself as I look I I have never been able to carry off a transam. I wish I could. And I'm pretty certain the full-on Burt Reynolds mustache just wouldn't work with me. What about the snowman Jerry Reed? You could be this no manager read and have the dog up in there with you. You know, the dog or or or even better you can have it right attack? I mean, you know, who knows anything I'll tell you a little inside story, your good friend. Mark levin.

There is a track of three songs that plays in your ear because the studio goes dark while they're playing commercials across the country.

My aunt my idea Sonia. Have you you've met my dad? My dad younger sisters. She has always thought that Burt Reynolds was the best looking man alive. She is to particular when I was a kid go on and on about about about how gorgeous he was. Yeah. It was cool. I I didn't have the pending on the other. But she she certainly with an advert by. I think Burt Reynolds, and Robert Redford are kind of for our generation, you know, if you say was good looking guy. No Burt Reynolds, or he's no, Robert Redford. But and there you go. How long how much longer is? This is this dog and pony show with the cavenaugh nomination as long as it's going to be subjected to this nonsense. So my guest is run into the evening. We will finish with him tonight. And then there'll be another day of hearings tomorrow, but it won't be with with judge cabinet. It'll be with with other witnesses. So we did every Senator got thirty minutes that was yesterday. Today every Senator yes, twenty minutes. And then we may well do a third round on that. And and I think the plan is just left the Democrats tire themselves out. I mean, they they have not been able to lay a glove. Right. I saw your comment with Sean Hannity to that effect. I thought that was fantastic. And so I think they're just at this point. I think a lot of the Democrats are looking silly. But but they're mostly just performing for their base that is so and grabbing judge Cavanaugh is handled himself very very well as as Neil Gorsuch both. Senator here in just a moment.
