  • BRIAN:

  • IRAN VOWING TO RETAILUATE AFTERU

  • IRAN VOWING TO RETAILUATE AFTERS

  • IRAN VOWING TO RETAILUATE AFTER.

  • AIRSTRIKES TAKE DOWN QASSEM

  • SOLEIMANI.

  • STEVE: HERE WITH HER REACTION IS

  • HOUSE ARMED SERVICES MEMBER

  • TULSI GABBARD WHO JOINS US FROM

  • NEW HAMPSHIRE.

  • SHE'S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.

  • TULSI, GOOD MORNING TO YOU.

  • >> GOOD WHO MORNING.

  • ALOE E THAT.

  • STEVE: STEVE LOW THAT, INDEED.

  • WE KNOW YOU WERE HAVING A TOWN

  • HALL LAST NIGHT WHEN THIS NEWS

  • BROKE.

  • WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE

  • PRESIDENT'S ORDER TO TAKE OUT

  • SULEMANI?

  • >> THIS WAS VERY CLEARLY AN ACT

  • OF WAR BY THIS PRESIDENT WITHOUT

  • ANY KIND OF AUTHORIZATION OR

  • DECLARATION OF WAR FROM

  • CONGRESS.

  • CLEARLY VIOLATING THE

  • CONSTITUTION.

  • IT FURTHER ESCALATES THIS TIT

  • FOR TAT THAT'S GOING ON AND ON

  • AND ON, WILL E LIS SIT A VERY

  • SERIOUS RESPONSE FROM IRAN AND

  • PUSHING US DEEPER AND DEEPER

  • INTO THIS QUAGMIRE, AND IT

  • REALLY BEGS THE QUESTION FOR

  • WHAT?

  • WHAT ARE WE --

  • AINSLEY: HOW DO YOU JUSTIFY

  • THAT?

  • >> WHAT IS THE END STATE AND THE

  • GOAL HERE?

  • LOOK, I'VE SAID FOR A LONG TIME

  • THAT GOING TO WAR WITH IRAN

  • WOULD MAKE THE WAR IN IRAQ AND

  • EVEN AFGHANISTAN LOOK LIKE A

  • PICNIC.

  • IT WILL BE FAR MORE COSTLY AND

  • DEVASTATING IN AMERICAN LIVES

  • AND IN TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

  • AND I DON'T BELIEVE THE AMERICAN

  • PEOPLE WANT TO GO TO WAR WITH

  • IRAN.

  • THEY UNDERSTAND HOW SERIOUS THIS

  • IS.

  • AINSLEY: CONGRESSWOMAN, HOW DO

  • YOU JUSTIFY IT WHEN YOU LACK AT

  • THE STATISTICS?

  • 70% OF ALL U.S. DEATHS IN IRAQ

  • FROM 2003-2007 WERE ORCHESTRATED

  • BY ASSUME HANDNY.

  • WHEN THEY -- SULEMANI.

  • ARE WE SUPPOSED TO JUST STAND BY

  • AND LET THE IRANIAN-BACKED

  • MILITIAS INVADE OUR TERRITORY

  • AND POSSIBLY KILL AMERICANS?

  • >> NO, LOOK, THERE IS NO

  • QUESTION ABOUT HOW EVIL THIS GUY

  • IS.

  • NO ONE SHOULD SHED A SINGLE TEAR

  • FOR HIS DEATH.

  • BUT THAT'S NOT REALLY THE

  • QUESTION HERE.

  • THE REAL QUESTION IS WHAT ARE WE

  • TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH HERE IN

  • THIS COUNTRY, AND WHERE WILL

  • THIS DECISION THAT THIS

  • PRESIDENT MADE TO ESCALATE THIS,

  • THESE TENSIONS AND THIS CRISIS

  • AND COMMIT THIS ACT OF WAR

  • WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL

  • AUTHORIZATION?

  • IT WILL LEAD US TO AN OUTCOME

  • THAT ACTUALLY FURTHER UNDERMINES

  • OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND

  • NEEDLESSLY SENDS MORE OF OUR

  • TROOPS INTO HARM'S WAY.

  • YOU KNOW, TRUMP TALKED A LOT IN

  • HIS CAMPAIGN FOR THE PRESIDENCY

  • AND EVEN SINCE HE'S BEEN IN

  • OFFICE ABOUT HOW HE WANTS TO END

  • FOREVER WARS, BUT HIS ACTIONS

  • TELL A DIFFERENT STORY.

  • JUST SINCE MAY OF LAST YEAR

  • ALONE, MAY OF 2019 ALONE, WE'VE

  • SEEN MORE THAN 15,000 U.S.

  • TROOPS, ADDITIONAL U.S. TROOPS

  • BEING DEPLOYED ACROSS THE MIDDLE

  • EAST.

  • ALL OF THESE ACTIONS PUSHING US

  • CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THIS WAR

  • WITH IRAN.

  • AND THIS STEP THAT HE JUST TOOK

  • LAST NIGHT SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY

  • ESCALATED THE SITUATION.

  • BRIAN: SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEIR

  • INFLUENCE IN IRAN, WHEN YOU

  • LOOK -- EXCUSE ME, IN SYRIA,

  • WHEN YOU LOOK AT IRAN'S

  • INFLUENCE IN LEBANON, WHEN YOU

  • LOOK AT IRAN'S INFLUENCE IN

  • IRAQ, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THEIR

  • INFLUENCE WITHOUT THE,

  • THROUGHOUT THE REGION AND NOW

  • THEIR PURSUIT, COVERT AND OVERT

  • OF A NUCLEAR WEAPON, ARE YOU

  • COMFORTABLE WITH US JUST PULLING

  • BACK AND WATCHING, SITTING IN

  • THE STANDS AND SAYING PASS THE

  • POPCORN?

  • >> NO.

  • I THINK WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT

  • WHY AND HOW WE'VE GOTTEN TO THIS

  • POINT WHERE IRAN HAS A MUCH

  • GREATER LEVEL OF INFLUENCE AND

  • PRESENCE IN IRAQ AND SYRIA.

  • AS YOU MENTIONED.

  • IT WAS BECAUSE OF OUR REGIME

  • CHANGE WARS IN IRAQ AND AND

  • LIBYA AND SYRIA THAT WE'VE SEEN

  • THESE COUNTRIES TURN IRAQ AND

  • SYRIA ESPECIALLY TURN MORE

  • TOWARDS IRAN FOR HELP AND FOR

  • ASSISTANCE, STRENGTHENING THEIR

  • PARTNERSHIPS AND ALLOWING FOR

  • IRAN TO GAIN FAR GREATER

  • INFLUENCE AND PRESENCE IN MANY

  • DIFFERENT RESPECTS IN THESE

  • COUNTRIES.

  • REALLY THE QUESTION THAT WE NEED

  • TO ASK OURSELVES NOW IS WE HAVE

  • MEN AND WOMEN IN HARM'S WAY

  • TODAY IN THESE COUNTRIES, AND

  • WHAT PURPOSE ARE THEY SERVING?

  • ORIGINALLY IT WAS THAT THEY

  • NEEDED TO GO AND TO PREVENT

  • ANOTHER al-QAEDA INSURGENCY,

  • AN ATTACK AND THREAT TO THE

  • UNITED STATES, TO DEFEAT THESE

  • TERRORISTS THAT ATTACKED US ON

  • 9/11.

  • THAT'S THE CONGRESSIONAL

  • AUTHORIZATION THAT OUR TROOPS

  • ARE THERE FOR.

  • BUT REALLY WHAT WE'RE SEEING NOW

  • IS THAT'S NOT ACTUALLY THE CASE.

  • al-QAEDA'S STRONGER, AND IT IS

  • BECOMING MORE CLEAR THAT OUR

  • TROOPS ARE REALLY THERE TO FIGHT

  • AGAINST IRAN.

  • ONCE AGAIN, A WAR THAT CONGRESS

  • HAS NOT AUTHORIZED.

  • THERE HAS BEEN NO --

  • BRIAN: RIGHT.

  • I DON'T THINK --

  • [INAUDIBLE]

  • [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS]

  • I THINK THAT WAS A RESPONSE TO

  • THE --

  • >> IT JUST HAPPENED.

  • IT JUST HAPPENED THOUGH.

  • STEVE: CONGRESSWOMAN, YOU

  • MENTIONED CONGRESS.

  • CONGRESS RETURNS TO WORK

  • TOGETHER.

  • THAT'S YOUR OTHER FULL-TIME JOB

  • IN ADDITION TO RUNNING FOR

  • PRESIDENT.

  • YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

  • LOOKING IN AT NANCY PELOSI AND

  • WONDERING WHAT EXACTLY IS

  • HAPPENING WITH IMPEACHMENT.

  • SHE STILL HASN'T TURNED OVER THE

  • ARTICLES TO THE SENATE AS IS

  • REQUIRED BY THE CONSTITUTION,

  • AND NOW WE HEAR THAT JOSH HOWLEY

  • FROM THE GREAT STATE OF

  • MISSOURI, THE SENATOR THERE --

  • >> MISSOURI.

  • STEVE: -- ON MONDAY IS GOING TO

  • ESSENTIALLY SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT?

  • LET'S MOVE TO REMOVE THESE

  • BECAUSE, LET'S THROW THEM OUT

  • BECAUSE THE HOUSE IS PLAYING

  • POLITICS WITH THIS.

  • >> I HAVEN'T SEEN WHAT SENATOR

  • HOWLEY HAS DOWN, BUT I WILL --

  • HAS DONE, BUT I WILL SAY WHAT

  • I'VE SAID REALLY ALL ALONG, THIS

  • IMPEACH APPOINTMENT HAS ONLY

  • PROVEN TO FURTHER STRENGTHEN

  • TRUMP.

  • IT'S INCREASING THE LIKELIHOOD

  • THAT IT'LL BE HARDER FOR US TO

  • DEFEAT HIM, IT'LL INCREASE THE

  • LIKELIHOOD THAT REPUBLICANS TAKE

  • THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE WHICH I

  • DON'T THINK IS A GOOD THING FOR

  • THE COUNTRY.

  • I'M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, AND I

  • BELIEVE THAT WE CAN REMOVE HIM

  • FROM OFFICE AT THE BALLOT BOX.

  • WE CAN DEFEAT HIM AT THE

  • ELECTION IN 2020 SO THAT WE CAN

  • BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER IN THIS

  • COUNTRY AND ACTUALLY BRING ABOUT

  • THAT POSITIVE CHANGE, YOU ARE

  • SCHERR IN -- USHER IN THAT NEW

  • ERA OF OPPORTUNITY AND RESPECT

  • AND EQUALITY FOR ALL AMERICANS.

  • THAT'S WHAT I'M WORKING TOWARDS.

  • STEVE: ARE YOU -- GO AHEAD.

  • AINSLEY: WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE?

  • THE IOWA CAUCUS IS IN LITERALLY

  • A MONTH.

  • I THINK IT'S FEBRUARY 3RD,

  • RIGHT?

  • >> IT IS, YOUR RIGHT.

  • AINSLEY: WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE

  • TO GET THE ANTICIPATION OF THE

  • VOTERS?

  • >> REACHING OUT AND VISITING

  • WITH VOTERS EVERY SINGLE DAY

  • ACROSS THE EARLY STATES AND

  • CONNECTING WITH THEM.

  • AND WHAT'S REALLY INCREDIBLE AND

  • INSPIRING TO ME IS THAT, YOU

  • KNOW, AT OUR TOWN HALL LAST

  • NIGHT AND EVERY SINGLE DAY WE

  • HAVE DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS,

  • INDEPENDENTS AND LIBERTARIANS

  • WHO ARE COMING TOGETHER AND

  • REALLY PUTTING COUNTRY FIRST.

  • WANTING TO BREAK THIS

  • HYPERPARTISAN GRIDLOCK IN

  • WASHINGTON THAT'S STANDING IN

  • THE WAY OF PROGRESS AND

  • RECOGNIZING, HEY, WE WILL AGREE

  • TO DISAGREE ON MAYBE A FEW

  • ISSUES OR MAYBE EVEN A LOT OF

  • ISSUES.

  • BUT WHEN WE COME TOGETHER AND

  • STAND TOGETHER AS AMERICANS

  • ROOTED IN OUR CONSTITUTION, OUR

  • BILL OF RIGHTS, WHO WE ARE AS A

  • COUNTRY, THEN WE CAN WORK

  • TOGETHER SIDE BY SIDE AND FIND

  • THAT PATH FORWARD TOWARDS THAT

  • BETTER AND BRIGHTER FUTURE.

  • STEVE: WAS THE WATER OFF OF NEW

  • HAMPSHIRE COLDER THAN THE WATER

  • OFF OF HILO ON THE FIRST TODAY

  • OF THE YEAR -- FIRST DAY OF THIS

  • YEAR?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • >> ONLY SLIGHTLY.

  • I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH

  • COLD IN MY LIFE.

  • IT WAS, IT WAS A WONDERFUL WAY

  • TO USHER IN THE NEW YEAR.

  • I HAD A WET SUIT ON THAT DAY,

  • AND SO IT WAS JUST MY FACE THAT

  • WAS EXPOSED THAT WAS
