>> Bill: YOUR WORDS ARE LIVE
BUT HERE THE MITCH MCCONNELL.
>> A FEW DAYS AGO SPECIAL
FORCES TOOK OUT THE FOUNDER OF
ISIS, THE CLEAREST REMINDER
THAT THE NATIONAL SECURITY OF
THE UNITED STATES AND THE
MISSIONS OF OUR SERVICE MEMBERS
DO NOT PAUSE FOR PARTISAN
POLITICS.
LESS THAN A WEEK LATER FOR
POLITICAL PURPOSES SENATE
DEMOCRATS SAY THEY REFUSED TO
SECURE FUNDING FOR THOSE VERY
SAME MISSIONS.
WHY SHOULD DEMOCRATS HAVE
TALKED UP A STORM IN RECENT
DAYS CRITICIZING THE
ADMINISTRATION'S APPROACH TO
SYRIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST, LOTS
OF TALK, BUT APPARENTLY THEY
AREN'T CONCERNED ENOUGH ABOUT
THE MIDDLE EAST AND FIGHTING
ISIS TO ACTUALLY VOTE FOR THE
FUNDING THAT KEEPS THE MISSIONS
GOING.
AND CONSIDER THIS, MR.
PRESIDENT.
IF DEMOCRATS FILIBUSTER THIS
DEFENSE FUNDING AS THEY HAVE
THREATENED TO THEY WILL BE
FILIBUSTERING THE EXACT KIND OF
MILITARY ASSISTANCE FOR UKRAINE
OVER WHICH THEY ARE TRYING TO
IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT.
LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
THIS LEGISLATION IS WHAT
APPROPRIATES THE MONEY FOR THE
UKRAINE SECURITY ASSISTANCE
INITIATIVE, PRECISELY THE
PROGRAM THAT DEMOCRATS ARE
TRYING TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT
TRUMP FOR SUPPOSEDLY SLOW
WALKING.
AND YET TOMORROW, RIGHT HERE IN
THE SENATE, THEY SAY THEY WILL
FILIBUSTER FUNDING FOR THE
EXACT SAME PROGRAM.
ONLY IN WASHINGTON WOULD YOU
SEE A SHOW LIKE THAT.
THEY WANT TO IMPEACH THE
PRESIDENT FOR DELAYING
ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE WHILE
THEY BLOCK FUNDING FOR THE
PROGRAM THEMSELVES.
I WOULD SAY IT'S UNBELIEVABLE
EXCEPT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IS
HAPPENING.
LOOK, I THINK IT'S PRETTY CLEAR
OUR DEMOCRATIC COLLEAGUES DO
NOT HAVE A GREAT AFFINITY FOR
PRESIDENT TRUMP.
BUT THE COUNTRY CANNOT AFFORD
FOR DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS TO
TAKE A ONE-YEAR VACATION FROM
ANY PRODUCTIVE LEGISLATION JUST
BECAUSE THEY WOULD RATHER
OBSESS OVER IMPEACHMENT.
ISIS AND OTHER RADICAL
TERRORISTS ARE NOT GOING TO HIT
THE PAUSE BUTTON BECAUSE
DEMOCRATS WON'T FUND THE U.S.
MILITARY.
STRATEGIC COMPETITORS LIKE
RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE NOT GOING
TO HIT PAUSE BECAUSE DEMOCRATS
WOULD RATHER HURT THE WHITE
HOUSE THAN FUND OUR MILITARY
COMMANDERS.
LOOK, CONGRESS NEEDS TO DO ITS
WORK.
WE NEED TO FUND OUR ARMED
FORCES.
TOMORROW'S VOTE WILL TELL US
WHICH SENATORS ARE ACTUALLY
READY TO DO IT.
NOW SPEAKING OF IMPEACHMENT,
YESTERDAY HOUSE DEMOCRATS
RELEASED THEIR MUCH HIGH
RESOLUTION ADVERTISED AS
BRINGING FAIRNESS AND DUE
PROCESS INTO SPEAKER PELOSI'S
AND CHAIRMAN SCHIFF'S CLOSED
DOOR PARTISAN INQUIRY.
UNFORTUNATELY THE DRAFT
RESOLUTION THAT HAS BEEN
RELEASED DOES NOTHING OF THE
SORT.
IT FALLS WAY SHORT, WAY SHORT.
AS I'VE SAID REPEATEDLY AND
IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS THE MOST
SOLEMN AND SERIOUS PROCESS THE
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CAN
EMBARK UPON AND SEEKS TO
NULLIFY A DEMOCRATIC ELECTION
AND CANCEL OUT THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE'S CHOICE OF A
COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF.
FOR THAT REASON ANY SUCH
INQUIRY MUST BE CONDUCTED BY
THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF
FAIRNESS AND DUE PROCESS BUT
THUS FAR THIS TIME AROUND
INSTEAD OF SETTING A HIGH BAR
HOUSE DEMOCRATS SEEM DETERMINED
TO SET A NEW LOW.
SPEAKER PELOSI HAS INITIATED A
BIZARRE PROCESS.
>> Bill: ANY TIME MITCH
MCCONNELL SPEAKS YOU HAVE TO
LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY TO THE
