  • >> PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE

  • REPRESENTATION HE WILL

  • PROBABLY HIRE AN ATTORNEY TO

  • REPRESENT HIM.

  • I BELIEVE HE SHOULD HAVE

  • HELP FROM THE HOUSE.

  • THESE INDIVIDUALS THAT HAVE

  • WORKED THROUGH THIS THAT

  • COULD GIVE ADVICE.

  • I WOULD GO TO JOHN RATCLIFFE

  • FORMER U.S. ATTORNEY.

  • I WOULD GO TO JIM JORDAN.

  • I WOULD GO TO DOUG COLLINS.

  • BRIAN: DOUG COLLINS JUST

  • FOUND OUT FOR CERTAIN HE

  • WOULD BE ONE OF THE HOUSE

  • MANAGERS.

  • THAT WAS HOUSE MINORITY

  • LEADER KEVIN McCARTHY

  • REVEALING WHO HE THINKS

  • SHOULD REPRESENT THE

  • PRESIDENT IN THE SENATE

  • IMPEACHMENT TRIAL IN THE

  • HOUSE.

  • ONE OF THOSE NEXT PICKS IS

  • DOUG COLLINS RANKING MEMBER

  • OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY

  • COMMITTEE.

  • DOUG, I GUESS YOU KNEW BUT

  • YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GOING

  • TO BE PUBLIC.

  • WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?

  • >> WELL, I THINK THERE IS

  • ALWAYS CONVERSATIONS.

  • WHATEVER THE PRESIDENT AND

  • HIS TEAM NEEDS FROM, OF

  • COURSE, THE GENTLEMAN -- OUR

  • LEADER MENTIONED ARE GOING

  • TO BE GREAT AS FAR AS

  • WORKING TO DO WHATEVER WE

  • CAN.

  • WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS

  • SHAM IMPEACHMENT FOR THE

  • LAST IMPEACHMENT FOR THE

  • LAST FEW MONTHS.

  • WHATEVER THE PRESIDENT

  • NEEDS, WE HAVE SHONT ABILITY

  • TO BLOW UP THE CASE THAT THE

  • DEMOCRATS TRIED TO MAKE ON

  • THIS PRESIDENT.

  • WHEN THE PRESIDENT IS SIMPLY

  • DOING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S

  • BUSINESS.

  • THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO

  • IMPEACH HIM BECAUSE AS YOU

  • SAID AGAIN CLOCK AND

  • CALENDAR.

  • ELECTION THEY ARE TRYING TO

  • INFLUENCE THAT'S NEXT YEAR'S

  • ELECTION AND THEY DON'T CARE

  • HOW THEY ARE DOING IT.

  • BRIAN: THE SPEAKER SAYS I

  • WILL NOT REALLY HAND OVER

  • THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT

  • UNTIL MITCH TELLS ME THE

  • RULES OF THE SENATE.

  • DOES HE HAVE THAT TYPE OF

  • POWER?

  • >> NOT REALLY.

  • MITCH McCONNELL MADE THAT

  • VERY CLEARLY.

  • CAN YOU IMAGINE THE

  • HYPOCRISY OF SPEAKER PELOSI

  • AS SHE JUST PRESIDED OVER

  • THE MOST PARTISAN HACK

  • IMPEACHMENT JOB WE HAVE EVER

  • SEEN IN OUR COUNTRY'S

  • HISTORY.

  • RULES AND TIME DIDN'T

  • MATTER.

  • ALL THEY WANTED TO DO WAS

  • IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT TO

  • GET AT HIM NEXT ELECTION.

  • HER HYPOCRISY IN THIS ONE IS

  • SO OVERWHELMING IT SHOULD

  • KNOCK PEOPLE DOWN.

  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT THIS

  • WAY, NOW TRYING TO HAVE

  • EVERYTHING HER WAY THAT'S

  • NOT THE WAY IT WORKS MADAM

  • SPEAKER.

  • IF YOU WANT TO DO IT RIGHT,

  • GO AHEAD AND SEND THE

  • ARTICLES OVER TO THE SENATE.

  • LET THEM SEE THE TRAGEDY YOU

  • PUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

  • THROUGH BECAUSE HAVE YOU NO

  • AGENDA NO, POLICY AND

  • NOTHING TO RUN ON NEXT YEAR

  • AND TERRIBLE CANDIDATES TO

  • DO IT WITH, ALL HAVE YOU GOT

  • TO DO IS TRY TO IMPEACH THE

  • PRESIDENT TO GET THERE.

  • BRIAN: TELL MITCH

  • MCCONNELL IS HE GOING TO

  • LOSE THE MAJORITY IN THE

  • SENATE.

  • SUSAN COLLINS, THOM TILLIS

  • IN ROUGH RACES.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK IS OUT

  • THERE IN THIS IMPEACHMENT

  • THAT MIGHT PRESSURE THEM TO

  • PRESSURE MITCH McCONNELL

  • TO MAKE THIS A TRIAL?

  • >> WELL, I THINK THE

  • INTERESTING THICK IS VERY

  • MUCH WHAT WE HAVE SEEN FROM

  • THE SENATE.

  • I THINK THEY ACTUALLY GOT

  • HELPED BY WHAT HAPPENED IN

  • THE HOUSE.

  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE FOLKS

  • WHO MAY BE UNDER PRESSURE

  • RIGHT NOW IN DIFFERENT

  • STATES.

  • BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

  • EVIDENCE THAT CAME OUT OF

  • THE HOUSE, YOU LOOK AT THE

  • UNFAIRNESS THAT COPY OUT OF

  • THE HOUSE.

  • YOU LOOK AT THE VERY FACT

  • THAT THEY COULD NOT MAKE A

  • CRIME OR A CASE AGAINST THE

  • PRESIDENT BECAUSE THE

  • PRESIDENT DID NOTHING WRONG,

  • IN THIS INSTANCE, I THINK IT

  • ACTUALLY HELPED THEM BECAUSE

  • THEY CAN NOW GO BACK TO

  • THEIR STATES AND THEY CAN

  • SAY LOOK, THIS IS WHAT

  • HAPPENED IN THE HOUSE.

  • THERE IS NOTHING HERE.

  • THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS MADE

  • THAT VERY CLEAR.

  • AND THE HOUSE DEMOCRAT

  • ACTIONS MADE IT VERY CLEAR

  • THAT THIS WAS NOTHING BUT A

  • PARTISAN SHAM IMPEACHMENT.

  • YOU MAY NOT LIKE THIS

  • PRESIDENT.

  • THIS PRESIDENT HAS DONE GOOD

  • THINGS FOR OUR COUNTRY.

  • WE WILL LOOK AT OUR ECONOMY

  • AND MISSION OVERSEAS.

  • WE LOOK AT OUR MILITARY.

  • HE IS DOING WHAT HE SAID HE

  • WOULD DO, I THINK THESE

  • SENATORS CAN GO BACK TO

  • THEIR STATES AND SAY LOOK,

  • YOU TAKE THIS FOR WHAT IT IS

  • A PARTISAN POLITICAL HACK

  • JOB ON THIS PRESIDENT.

  • BRIAN: NANCY PELOSI IS NOT

  • DUMB.

  • WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE IS UP

  • TO.

  • HE IS WHAT THE TACTIC?

  • >> I THINK SHE IS TRYING TO

  • BUILD A CASE.

  • TRY TO STRENGTH A VERY POOR

  • HAND SHE HAS IN THE HOUSE.

  • ALSO TRYING TO GIVE 31

  • MODERATES IN TRUMP

  • DISTRICTS, DEMOCRATS IN

  • TRUMP DISTRICTS A LITTLE BIT

  • OF COVER.

  • THE PROBLEM IS SHE HAS NOW

  • MADE IT VERY OPEN TO THE

  • WORLD THIS PARTISAN.

  • PARTISAN EVENT.

  • BECAUSE SHE TOLD HER MEMBERS

  • THIS IS A CONSCIOUS,

  • REMEMBER A VERY SOLEMN
