Watch: House final vote on articles of impeachment (FULL LIVE STREAM)

>>

HE’S NOT TRYING TO DEFEND THEM AT ALL, LIKE DOUG COLLINS OR JIM

JORDAN HAS TRIED AT SOME POINT BUT, THEN HE TALKS ABOUT THE

PROCESS AND HE SAID I THOUGHT THIS WAS RUSH, HE PLAYED INTO

THE COMMENTS

THAT REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING DEMOCRATS KIND OF HAVE IT IN FOR

HIM. I DON’T THINK THIS WAS A FAIR PROCESS. AND WASHINGTON

POST ABC POLLING BEARS THAT OUT THAT A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS,

LIKE AROUND 52% THINK THAT THEY DISAPPROVE OF THE WAY TRUMP HAS

HANDLED EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IMPEACHMENT, THEY DISAPPROVE THE WAY REPUBLICANS HAVE HANDLED THIS AND THEY DISAPPROVE OF THE WAY DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS HAVE HANDLED THIS >> THEY ARE TRYING TO GET OUT OF VOTING TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT JUST BY ARGUING ABOUT THE PROCESS >> WE’VE GOT ABOUT TWO MINUTES LEFT ON THIS BOAT. THIS MOTION TO ADJOURN. THEY KICKED OFF EVERYTHING NO SENSE THAT IT WILL PASS OF COURSE, BUT WE ARE WATCHING THE NUMBERS HERE TO SEE WHERE THIS GOES. STILL, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVEN’T VOTED YET BUT THEY DON’T NEED EVERYBODY TO VOTE >> THEY DON’T. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE IF THEY CALL THE VOTE BEFORE ALL OF THE MEMBERS HAVE SHOWN UP. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOME PEOPLE AREN’T EVEN ON CAPITOL HILL YET BUT I’M SURE ALL OF THE LAWMAKERS HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO ANTICIPATE A D FULL OF SURPRISES AND TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE GOING TO NEED TO BE ON THE HOUSE FLOOR AND CERTAINLY IN THAT AREA OF THE CAPITAL NEARLY ALL DAY >> YOU KNOW, IT IS A MOMENT THAT A LOT OF MEMBERS WILL WANT TO BE HERE FOR AND THEY WILL WANT TO BE IN THE CHAMBER. IT IS A LONG DAY, THOUGH. JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BE THERE DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN THEY PLAN ON BEING THERE FOR THE NEXT 10 HOURS. BUT, YOU DON’T OFTEN SEE, BECAUSE OF THE CONTROL THAT CONGRESS HAS OVER THOSE CAMERAS, THAT IF YOUR REPRESENTATIVE IS MAKING A SPEECH ON THE HOUSE FLOOR, THERE MAY BE TWO PEOPLE WATCHING OR LISTENING, RIGHT? THIS ISN’T ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE IT WILL BE FULL OF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS >> YOU KNOW, YOU THINK OF CONGRESS DEBATING SOMETHING SERIOUS AND IMPORTANT AND YOU THINK OF SOMEONE PASSIONATELY GIVING A SPEECH IN ALL OF CONGRESS, LISTENING TO THEM. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DO OR APPLAUD, PROBABLY NOT >> THEY PROBABLY WILL A LITTLE BIT TODAY, THOUGH >> THIS WILL BE MORE LIKE THAT, MORE LIKE WHAT YOU SEE IN THE MOVIES. THAT YOU ARE RIGHT NORMALLY IT IS KIND OF A DRY, BORING MOMENT WHEN THEY HAVE THOSE MOMENTS >> THEY WILL SEND OUT A SPEECH, TO SOME ISSUE, AND OF COURSE THE VOTERS, THAT THERE WAS LIKE NO ONE IN THE CHAMBER ACTUALLY LISTENING TO IT. THAT IS THE NATURE OF WHAT CAMERAS IN THE CHAMBER MEAN BUT THEY DON’T HAVE CONTROL OVER WHERE THOSE CAMERAS GO AT ANY POINT SO WE ARE AT THE MERCY OF WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO SHOW US. THERE IS NO TIME REMAINING IN THIS VOTE LET’S LISTEN TO THE SOUND FROM THE FLOOR TO SEE IF THEY HOLD THIS OPEN OR WRAP THINGS UP WE WILL KEEP BRINGING THIS TO YOU THROUGHOUT THE DAY AS THE HOUSE MOVES THROUGH THE PROCEDURAL PROCESS AS WELL AS DEBATES. THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, AGAIN, DIANA IS THERE AT THE CHAIR AT THE TOP OF THE CONGRESSMAN FROM COLORADO, A DEMOCRAT WHO SPEAKER PELOSI ASKED TO SERVE IN THE ROLE OF THIS HISTORIC MOMENT >> IT IS A FAMILIAR SOUND, ISN’T IT? THAT KIND OF MURMUR FROM THE HOUSE FLOOR. YOU DON’T HEAR PARTICULAR SPEECH BUT YOU KNOW ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO GATHER >> LEASE, WHAT IT IS A WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR YOU TO BE IN THE CHAMBER. I HAVE BEEN IN THAT GALLERY AREA WHERE REPORTERS ARE ALLOWED TO SIT. IT IS SORT OF LIKE CRAMPED AND TINY WHERE YOU ARE PERSONALLY SITTING BUT THEN YOU REALLY LOOK DOWN ON THE MAJESTY OF THE FLOOR AND YOU KNOW THIS IS SUCH A PLACE FOR HISTORY AND PERHAPS MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC THAT ARE WATCHING THIS TODAY >> IT IS A POWERFUL ROOM TO BE IN. IT IS A POWERFUL EXPERIENCE TO BE AN AND TO WATCH, PARTICULARLY A DAY LIKE THIS, I THINK. ON A NORMAL DAY, AGAIN, YOU MIGHT NOT SEE MANY MEMBERS ON THE FLOOR. THE BUSINESS THEY ARE DOING MIGHT NOT BE AS IMPORTANT. BUT I THINK I KNOW SOME OF THE JOURNALISTS, AND I HAVE DOING THIS MYSELF, YOU GO IN THERE AND YOU SIT AND WATCH BECAUSE YOU REALIZE THAT IT IS SUCH A HISTORIC PLACE. AND IT IS A PECULIAR ENVIRONMENT IN CERTAIN WAYS. IT IS VERY COLD IT HAS A PARTICULAR SENT, WHICH SOUNDS STRANGE. IT IS NOT A BAD SENT, BUT IT IS A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN FEEL THE AGE AND SORT OF THE GRAVITY OF THE WHOLE CAPITOL HILL ENVIRONMENT IN THAT CHAMBER >> I’M JUST GOING TO ADD A LITTLE DETAIL. WE DON’T GET TO KNOW LIKE TO HAS VOTED WHAT WAY

WE SEE THE NUMBERS, BUT IF YOU ARE THERE IN THE CHAMBER, AND YOUR A REPORTER, YOU ARE IN THIS GALLERY KIND OF ABOVE WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOW, DIRECTLY OVER THOSE PEOPLE AND THE NAMES OF PEOPLE AND HOW THEY VOTED WILL BE CAST WHERE THOSE REPORTERS ARE SITTING SO IF YOU’RE WATCHING AT HOME ON TV, YOU MIGHT BE LIKE WELL, WHO IS NOT ONE REPUBLICAN WHO VOTED NAY ON THIS. OR ACTUALLY, THE INDEPENDENT. OBVIOUSLY IT IS FOR US, BECAUSE THERE’S ONLY ONE INDEPENDENT IN THE HOUSE. IT TAKES A MINUTE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHO VOTED WHAT >> IT IS SO GREAT WE HAVE A REPORTERS THAT ARE THERE BECAUSE THEY CAN FEED US INFORMATION BACK HERE ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY SEEING AND WITNESSING WITH THEIR OWN EYES ENOUGH TIME HAS EXPIRED, 11 PEOPLE HAVEN’T VOTED YET AT LEAST >> YEAH, IT IS CLEAR THIS IS THE FIRST VOTE OF THE DAY, PERHAPS LATER IN THE DAY WE WILL SEE IT TAKE PLACE MORE QUICKLY. THE TIME ON THESE VOTES IS FLEXIBLE. SOMEONE WHO IS SITTING IN THAT CHAIR AT THE TOP, IT LOOKS INK IT RIGHT NOW BUT EVENTUALLY THAT PERSON WILL COME BACK IN AND GATHER THE VOTE TO A CLOSE. BUT, THEY ARE ABLE TO DECIDE WHEN THAT HAPPENS USUALLY, WITH ADVICE FROM HOUSE LEADERSHIP AND THE PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW PROCEDURES AND RULES BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS AND ARE ABLE TO GIVE SOLID ADVICE ON HOW A DAY LIKE THIS SHOULD WORK BECAUSE I THINK THAT THE IMPORTANT THINGS FOR US AND MANY MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESS, MANY WHO WERE ELECTED FAIRLY RECENTLY. PARTICULARLY AS FRESHMAN DEMOCRATS. THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN A SCENE LIKE THIS BEFORE. THEY ARE PROBABLY A LITTLE UNAWARE OF PROCEDURES THEIR CELLS. THEMSELVES. LIKELY BY OTHER MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO ARE CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT’S HAPPENING >> LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT LETTER SPEAKER PELOSI SENT TO HER DEMOCRATIC COLLEAGUES. THIS WAS LAST NIGHT. ELISE, YOU KNOW, SHE IS THINKING CERTAINLY ABOUT HER MOMENT IN HISTORY AND SHE’S ALSO TRYING TO CONVEY A SENSE OF SOBRIETY, AND OF GREAT SERIOUSNESS AS SHE MOVES FORWARD BECAUSE SHE DOESN’T WANT THIS TO BE SEEN AS THE CIRCUS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD LIKE US ALL TO IMAGINE IT IS >> THAT HAS BEEN PELOSI’S MESSAGE FROM THE BEGINNING. THAT THEY, AS A DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THAT THEY TAKE NO PLEASURE IN CONDUCTING THIS PROCESS. THEY CONSIDER THIS VERY SERIOUS, VERY SAD IN A CERTAIN WAY. THEY SEE HAVING TO DO THIS TO A PRESIDENT, HAVING TO VOTE TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT AS A REFLECTION THAT THINGS HAVE TAKEN A TURN FOR THE WORSE IN THEIR VIEW. AND SO NANCY PELOSI, I THINK IN THIS LETTER TO HER MEMBERS, IS UNDERSCORING WHAT SHE EXPECTS FROM THEM. SHE EXPECTS EVERYONE, EVEN THOUGH THEY SAY THEY DIDN’T LISTED THE ACTUAL VOTE, MEANING THEY DIDN’T PLACE PRESSURE ON HOW THEY SHOULD VOTE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, IT IS CLEAR SHE WANTS EVERYONE TO STAY IN LINE IN TERMS OF NOT CELEBRATING ORDER TO TAKE THIS LIGHTLY >> SHE WAS TALKING TO A COUPLE DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS IN PARTICULAR A RELATIVELY SMALL SLICE OF THE PARTY BUT THEY WERE OUT THERE WHEN TRUMP GOT ELECTED OR SHORTLY AFTER AND THEY WERE ESPECIALLY AFTER THE MOLAR REPORT GOT OUT I THINK IN THIS LETTER, SHE’S TALKING ABOUT THOSE GUYS, SAYING LIKE, DON’T LET REPUBLICANS HOLD YOU UP, IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS REPRESENTATIVE OF OUR ENTIRE PARTY. TRY TO BEHAVE TODAY >> THE LETTER THAT NANCY PELOSI SENT OUT IS THE LETTER THAT RESIDENT TRUMP PUT OUT YESTERDAY. WHERE DO WE BEGIN WITH THIS LETTER? BECAUSE IT IS SORT OF SHOCKING IN TERMS OF WHAT IT SAYS FOR HISTORY. IT IS VERY MUCH IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S VOICE AND, YOU KNOW, IT IS THE KIND OF THING THAT IF YOU WERE A LAWYER IN THE WHITE HOUSE YOU WOULD CERTAINLY WANT A CRACK AT WORK ON THE EVE OF IMPEACHMENT BEFORE IT GETS SENT OUT, BUT THAT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WHAT IS HAPPENED BASED ON THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTING >> YEAH, THEY REPORTED THE LAWYERS WHO ADVISED TRUMP WERE NOT INTIMATELY INVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS FROM THE BEGINNING. THEY WISHED, PERHAPS, THAT THEY HAD TAKEN A GREATER ROLE. BOTH AS GENERAL ADVISORS AND LEGAL ADVISORS. IT IS A LETTER, I THINK, UNLIKE ANY OF US HAVE EVER SEEN ON A PRESIDENT. IT GOES ON FOR MORE THAN FIVE PAGES. I THINK IT IS FAIR TO SAY THAT IT IS A BIT RAMBLING AND OBVIOUSLY, HE ATTACKS THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, NANCY PELOSI HERSELF, IN VERY PERSONAL TERMS THAT YOU USUALLY DON’T SEE ON, AGAIN, I’M LOOKING AT THE LETTER

RIGHT NOW. IT IS ON OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE STATIONERY. WE ARE USED TO PRESIDENT TRUMP MAKING THESE KINDS OF ATTACKS ON HIS TWITTER PAGE, PERHAPS IN FRONT OF THE PODIUM AT A LARGE CAMPAIGN RALLY, BUT TO SEE IT SORT OF IN TRYING FOR HISTORY ON WHITE HOUSE STATIONERY, IT IS QUITE SURREAL IN A CERTAIN WAY >> IT IS CLEAR IT HAS GOTTEN UNDER HIS SKIN. HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE THE THIRD PRESIDENT EVER TO BE IMPEACHED BY THE HOUSE AND IT IS FRUSTRATING AS MUCH AS HE CAN SAY I THINK THIS IS A SHAM OR A WITCH HUNT, HE’S REALLY, REALLY FRUSTRATED ABOUT THE FACT HIS NAME IS LIKELY TODAY GOING TO GO DOWN IN HISTORY BOOKS AS AN IMPEACHED PRESIDENT. THIS CAME AFTER LIKE TWO MONTHS OF NOT LETTING HIS AIDES COME EVERYONE DID SO IN VIOLATION OF TRUMP’S DIRECT ORDERS. AND THEN ON THE EVE OF THIS HE’S LIKE NO, I’VE GOT TO GET MY SAY AND THIS IS WHAT HE WANTED TO SAY >> WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS LETTER MORE AS THE DAY GOES ON RIGHT NOW I WANT TO BRING IN NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT CHRIS WOODY, HE IS REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON. HE JOINS US NOW BY PHONE. YOU HAVE BEEN KEEPING AN EYE ON THIS, ESPECIALLY THAT, WHAT ARE THEY TELLING YOU, CHRIS? >> Reporter: SHE WAS AMONG THE MODERATE DEMOCRATS WHO WOULD NOT COME OUT AND SAID HOW THEY PLAN TO VOTE AND SHE HAD REALLY SAID, YOU KNOW, IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE DECISION, THAT SHE WAS REALLY STRUGGLING WITH IT. SHE SAID SHE WENT BACK AND READ ALL THE DEPOSITIONS, READ ALL THE DOCUMENTS, YOU KNOW, REALLY REVIEWED THE INFORMATION REALLY CAREFULLY. SHE IS A FORMER CIA ANALYST, SO SHE SAID I TRAINED FOR THIS. I DID WHAT MY PROFESSIONAL DUTY HAD TRAINED ME TO DO. WHEN HE CAME TO ANNOUNCE, SHE HELD THIS TOWN HALL 400 PEOPLE FROM HER DISTRICT CAME TO HEAR WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY, EVEN BEFORE HER NAME WAS CALLED, EVEN BEFORE SHE WAS AT THE STAGE, THIS VERY DIVIDED REACTION IN THE ROOM. SHE HAD PEOPLE BOOING, CHEERING, HECKLING. AND ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU HAVE PEOPLE STANDING UP AND GIVING HER AN OVATION AND GIVING HER SOME JUST SAYING SHE HAD DONE THE RIGHT THING AND THAT PATTERN BASICALLY CONTINUES THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUR THAT SHE SPOKE WHERE YOU HAD THIS EXTREMELY PARTISAN REACTION. IT REALLY MIRRORS THE REACTION WE HAVE SEEN TO THIS PROCESS AGAINST ACROSS THE COUNTRY >> GRIFF, IT IS SO INTERESTING BECAUSE THE FOOTAGE OF THE EVENT SHOWED EVERYTHING FROM PEOPLE CHEERING FOR HER AS SHE ANNOUNCED THIS TOUGH DECISION SHE HAS HAD TO MAKE AND PEOPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS SHOUTING DEEP STATE AND SHOUTING IMPEACH. ARE YOU FEELING THAT TENSION AND HEAT AS YOU JUST TALK TO PEOPLE? AS IF YOU ARE TALKING TO PEOPLE IN A COFFEE SHOP OR A DINER. IS NOT TRANSLATING HOW THEY ARE SPEAKING TO YOU ABOUT IT? >> I THINK THERE’S NO QUESTION THAT THIS EVENT — WHENEVER YOU PUT PEOPLE WHO ARE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THIS ISSUE, TOGETHER INTO A ROOM AND SAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS ISSUE, IT BRINGS IN INTENSITY THAT, NO, I DON’T SEE PEOPLE TALKING TO THEM INDIVIDUALLY. I THINK THERE WAS A PERFORMANCE ASPECT OF WHAT WE SAW THE OTHER DAY. BOTH SIDES REALLY PLAYING FOR THE CAMERAS AND ESPECIALLY, FRANKLY, THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS CLEARLY, THEY WERE DETERMINED TO JUST SHOUT AND SHOUT AND SHOUT AND NOT LET IT BE HEARD AND THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE WERE THESE VIDEO CLIPS OUT THERE OF HER ANNOUNCING HER DECISION AND PEOPLE SHOUTING OVER HER NOW, SHE WAS PREPARED FOR THIS SHE SAID I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO EXPECT. THIS WAS NOT A SURPRISE TO HER. AND SHE REALLY — YOU KNOW, BASICALLY KEPT GOING. KEPT EXPLAINING HERSELF AND KEPT SAYING I KNOW YOU DON’T AGREE WITH ME. I KNOW YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW, BUT I WANT YOU TO HEAR ME OUT. THIS IS WHY I MADE THIS DECISION AND SHE RAN THROUGH DECISION DESPITE THE FACT OF THE SHOUTING, SCREAMING, HECKLING NEVER STOPPED. SHE EVEN MOVED ON TO ANOTHER TOPIC AT ONE POINT. SHE STARTED TALKING ABOUT HER MOTHER’S DEATH FROM A VARIANT CANCER. SHE SAID AFTERWARDS, I DID WHAT I WANTED TO DO, WHICH IS TO REALLY BE TRANSPARENT WITH THE PEOPLE OF MY DISTRICT, TO ALLOW THEM TO HEAR ME AND FOR ME TO HEAR THEM AND NOT JUST GOING TO MAKE THIS DECISION AND NEVER TALK TO MY CONSTITUENTS ABOUT IT >> ALRIGHT, TALKING ABOUT THAT, I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THAT HE HAS BEEN POINTING

OUT THESE DECISIONS OUT OF BEEN HAPPENING AROUND THE COUNTRY, CALLING FOR THE PRESIDENT TO BE IMPEACHED AND WE WILL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT AS THE MORNING GOES ON. THAT ME READ YOU THE STORY, DEMONSTRATORS IN BIG CITIES AND SMALL TOWNS COAST TO COAST RALLIED CELEBRATING THE HISTORIC STEP THEY ARE EXPECTED TO TAKE WEDNESDAY WHILE IT IS ALMOST CERTAIN TO DIE IN THE SENATE. WE HAD REPORTERS REPORTING FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY SHOWING US JUST EXACTLY WHAT PROTESTERS, PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE TRUMP IMPEACHED, WHO SUPPORT THIS PROCESS, THE DEMOCRATS ARE MAKING, JUST WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT THAT THIS MORNING AS WE FOLLOW WHAT IS UNFOLDING IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. I WANT TO BRING OUR COLLEAGUE INTO OUR DISCUSSION HERE IN OUR STUDIO THIS MORNING. AS A VIDEO EDITOR, HE HAS BEEN COMPILING THE LIST OF WHICH HOUSE MEMBERS SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT AND WHICH PLAN TO VOTE AGAINST IT. HAVE YOUR CALCULATION HIT A MAGIC THRESHOLD NUMBER LAST NIGHT >> RIGHT. SO WITH THE CURRENT VACANCIES IN THE HOUSE, THERE’S FOUR VACANCIES. PELOSI NEEDS TO 16 VOTES FOR ONE OR BOTH ARTICLES TO PASS TODAY. WE GET THAT THRESHOLD YESTERDAY WITH PUBLIC STATEMENTS AND RELEASES AND TWEETS, THE NUMBERS WERE MAKING I THINK NOW WE ARE UP TO ABOUT 220. THIS SEEMS TO CHANGE ALMOST ON AN HOURLY BASIS. IN TERMS OF WHICH MEMBERS ARE COMING OUT AND SUPPORT, NOT IN SUPPORT. BUT THE REAL KEY HERE IS THE 31 DEMOCRATS AND THOSE DISTRICTS THAT TRUMP ONE THOSE WERE THE MODERATE MEMBERS OF THIS CAUCUS MORE OR LESS, WHO WE WERE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY TO SEE HOW THEY WOULD COME OUT, HOW THEY WOULD VOTE FOR THIS. AND THE SUPPORT FOR IMPEACHMENT FOR BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT HAS BEEN OVERWHELMING AMONG THOSE 31 >> YEAH, SO THE TALLY THAT YOU’VE GOT ON THE WASHINGTON POST WEBSITE AS PART OF THE 16, WHICH YOU ARE DOING THIS ANALYSIS, YOU KNOW, IT IS SUCH A USEFUL RESOURCE BECAUSE YOU CAN REALLY SEE HOW THE NUMBERS ARE BREAKING DOWN. BUT YOU HAVE 13 AT THIS POINT WE HAVE NOT SAT ON THE RECORD WATCH WAY THEY PLAN TO GO >> RIGHT. I THINK IF WE WERE PLACING BETS ON THIS, I THINK WE WOULD BET THAT THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF THOSE REMAINING 13 WOULD VOTE IN FAVOR OF BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ON THE FLOOR. SOME OF THESE ARE STAUNCH PELOSI ALLIES WHO HAVE NOT YET STATED. THAT ALL OF WHOM , MINUS FRANCIE ROONEY, A REPUBLICAN FROM FLORIDA WHO IS RETIRING, ALL OF THEM, OTHER THAN HIM, VOTED FOR THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY BACK IN OCTOBER, WHICH WAS KIND OF THE FIRST MARKER IN THIS WHOLE PROCESS. RIGHT? SO, AT THIS POINT, WE ARE ANTICIPATING MOST, IF NOT ALL OF THOSE MEMBERS TO VOTE FOR AT LEAST ONE, IF NOT BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AND IT COMES UP FOR A VOTE LATER TODAY >> LET’S TALK ABOUT CONGRESSMAN DARREN GOLDEN WHO PLANS TO VOTE ON ONE ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT >> RIGHT. HE WANTED DISTRICT THAT TRUMP ONE IN 2016 IN MAINE AND HE IS PLANNING TO VOTE FOR THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT FOR ABUSE OF POWER BUT NOT FOR THE ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT HE KIND OF PLAYED THIS OUT YESTERDAY AND HE IS THE ONLY ONE JAN WHO HAS SAID THAT THEY HAVE VOTED FOR ONE ARTICLE BUT NOT FOR BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ONE THING TO WATCH AND THE FLOOR DEBATE TODAY IS GOING TO BE WHETHER REPUBLICANS THAT GOLDEN USED YESTERDAY AGAINST OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AGAINST THAT ARTICLE TO ARGUE THAT THIS IS AN EVEN MORE PARTICLE PROCESS. SO, WHETHER GOLDEN’S WORDS ARE USED AGAINST THE BROADER DEMOCRATIC PROCESS WILL BE ONE OF MANY THINGS WE ARE WATCHING TODAY >> WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT FOOTNOTE? >> IT IS REALLY INTERESTING. I KNOW THAT OUR EMAIL CHAIN ABOUT THIS IT WAS DIFFICULT TO KNOW HOW TO COUNT THIS REPRESENTATIVE BECAUSE LIKE YOU SAID, HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS DECIDED I’M GOING TO VOTE FOR ONE AND NOT THE OTHER. BUT, WE DID SEE AS YOU SAID, THAT NANCY PELOSI GOT HER MAGIC NUMBER, SHE’S GOING TO HAVE THE MAJORITY. I THINK IT IS INTERESTING THAT THIS REPRESENTATIVE IS GOING TO BACK THE ABUSE OF POWER ARTICLE AS OPPOSED TO THE OBSTRUCTION ARTICLE BECAUSE IN CERTAIN WAYS, I THINK THE ABUSE OF POWER IS JUST A BIT MORE OF A COMPLICATED CASE TO MAKE >> 188, THE NAY’S ARE 226. THE MOTION IS NOT ADOPTED. THE HOUSE WILL BE IN ORDER >> WHAT PURPOSE IS ABOUT PERSON FROM CALIFORNIA SPEAK RECOGNITION? >> I RISE TO THE QUESTION OF THE HOUSE AND SEND — A CRITICAL

RESOLUTION >> SHERMAN NADLER WILLFULLY AND INTENTIONALLY VIOLATED THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BY ABUSING AND EXCEEDING THEIR CHAIRS OF COMMITTEE WITHOUT CONSULTATION OF THE RANKING MINORITY MEMBER, IN VIOLATION OF RULE NINE OF THE ROLES OF THE COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE, CHAIRMAN SCHIFF AND COORDINATION WITH THE COMMITTEES ON OVERSIGHT AND REFORM AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS ANNOUNCED A WIDE-RANGING INVESTIGATION TO THE TRUMP GIULIANI UKRAINE SCHEME.

AND BROUGHT DISHONOR AND DISCREDIT AMONG THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT ONE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STRONGLY CONDEMNS CHAIRMAN ADAM B SHIFT FOR REPEATED AND BLATANT ABUSE OF POWER IN A WAY THAT HAS IS NOT BEFITTING AN ELECTED MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES NOR HIS POSITION AS CHAIRMAN AND TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STRONGLY CONDEMNS THE MATTER OF WHICH GERALD LEWIS NASSER HAS FAILED TO RESPOND TO THE MINORITIES REQUEST FOR AN ADDITIONAL DAY OF HEARINGS TO CONSIDER IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP >> WHAT PURPOSE DOES THE RESOLUTION QUALIFY? >> MADAM CHAIR, I HAVE A MOTION AT THE DESK >> CIRCLE OF REPORT THE MOTION >> DELAYS THE RESOLUTION ON THE TABLE >> QUESTIONS ON THE MOTION TO TABLE. ALL IN FAVOR, SAY 10 >> GENTLEMAN FROM CALIFORNIA >> THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE RECORDED VOTE WILL RISE. A SUFFICIENT NUMBER HAVING RISEN TO REPORT THE VOTE HAS ORDER. NUMBERS WILL RECORD THEIR VOTES BY ELECTRONIC GUYS, THIS WILL BE A 15 MINUTE VOTE >> CONGRESSWOMAN DIANA IS THE ONE WITH THE GAVEL AND YOU CAN EXPECT TO HAVE THAT GAVEL A LOT TODAY AS SHE CALLS THE CHAMBER TO ORDER AS WELL AS SHE DEALS WITH THIS PROCEDURAL BUSINESS., McCARTHY, HAVING THIS READING OUT OF A PRETTY INTENSE LINE OF SAYINGS, I WAS SAYING, ELISE, THAT IT IS RARE THAT YOU HEAR SUCH INFLAMMATORY ACCUSATIONS READ AND SUCH LIKE A DEADPAN >> RIGHT, AND THE WOMAN THAT WORKS FOR THE HOUSE OF THE INSTITUTION, YOU SEE HER THERE OFTEN DURING WORK ON THE FLOOR USUALLY THEY SUSPEND THE READING OF WHATEVER IT IS THEY ARE WORKING ON TO GO THROUGH EVERY WORD OF THE LANGUAGE TO REQUIRE HER TO SIT THERE FOR YOU KNOW, FIVE, 10 MINUTES AND GET ALL OF IT. I THINK THAT SHOWS WHAT A HISTORIC DAY THIS IS. HOW UNUSUAL IT IS AND WE KNOW THAT REPUBLICANS WHO OFFERED THIS MOTION ARE GOING TO WANT TO HEAR EVERY WORD RIGHT INTO THE RECORD >> I THINK THIS MOTION IS INDICATIVE FOR ME OF HOW THE STATE IS GOING TO GO WHICH IS REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO LOSE THIS VOTE BUT THEY ARE GOING TO GO DOWN FIGHTING AS MUCH AS THEY CAN. THIS MOTION, WHAT WE ARE VOTING ON HERE IS WHETHER TO SET ASIDE SOMETHING REPUBLICANS HAVE SUGGESTED TO CONDEMN ADAM SCHIFF AND JERRY NADLER, THE TWO DEMOCRATS LEADING THE COMMITTEES WHO LED THE IMPEACHMENT CHARGE, FOR A BUNCH OF STUFF THAT BASICALLY COMES DOWN TO A COUPLE GRIEVANCES TRUMP HAD, BUT THAT, YOU KNOW, FACT CHECKERS HAVE ANALYZED THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG THEY CAN SUBPOENA PEOPLE THEY WANT TO SUBPOENA, TO SUBPOENA PHONE RECORDS THAT THEY WANT TO SUBPOENA. TO PARAPHRASE A PHONE CALL. IN HIS OPENING STATEMENTS, WHICH HE DID ACCURATELY. TALKING ABOUT ADAM SCHIFF HERE. AND THEY ARE JUST LIKE LISTING A BUNCH OF STUFF I SEE ON TRUMP’S TWITTER FEED ON THE TIME AND SAYING LET’S GO TO CONDEMN THEM. IT IS SUPER INFLAMMATORY >> NOT TO MENTION MOST OF THE RULES THEY ARE OPERATING UNDER RIGHT NOW, THAT THEY OPERATED THE INQUIRY UNDER WERE PASSED BY REPUBLICANS A FEW YEARS AGO AND MANY OF THE SAME REPUBLICANS WERE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE PROCESS AND LEARNING ABOUT THE RULES RIGHT NOW ARE THE SAME REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED THOSE RULES IN A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. BUT, THIS WAS — THIS WHOLE RESOLUTION WHERE, TO YOUR POINT, AMBER, MANY OF THE TALKING POINTS WE HAVE HEARD FROM REPUBLICANS AND THE DEFENSES THEY HAVE FLOATED ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP WERE KEEPING A TRACKER OF THAT AS WELL. WE ARE UP TO, I BELIEVE 27 DIFFERENT DEFENSES THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE FLOATED OF TRUMP’S CALL WITH UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT AND ALSO MORE BROADLY OF THE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS SO FAR. AND I THINK TO BOTH OF YOUR POINTS, WE ARE GOING TO SEE A LOT MORE OF THIS

AND ALL THIS DOES IS KIND OF DRAG OUT THE INEVITABLE AT THIS POINT AS WE MENTIONED THE DEMOCRATS HAVE THE VOTES AT THIS POINT TO PASS BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BUT, THIS JUST — DELAYS SOMETHING THAT WE ALL KNOW ULTIMATELY WILL HAPPEN >> AND I WANT TO SAY, WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK WITH THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WHERE REPUBLICANS INTRODUCED AMENDMENTS TO GET RID OF THE IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES, WHICH THEY KNEW WASN’T GOING TO GET PAST, HOWEVER, IT IS JUST THIS HEARING INTO LIKE TWO DAYS, THREE DAYS, REALLY, WHEN YOU ADDED IT ALL UP. AND HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS AND REPUBLICANS GOT A SHOUT OUT FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT FOR AT LEAST TRYING. HE CALLED THEM HEROES. AND I THINK THAT IS THE MODEL THEY ARE GOING TO USE TODAY >> YEAH, A LOT OF THIS SOMETIMES JUST PLAYING TO AN AUDIENCE OF ONE. AND ALL OF THIS IS KIND OF A MESSY PROCESS OF LEGISLATING RIGHT, NOT THAT THIS IS LEGISLATING, BUT YOU SEE OFTEN IN THESE HEARINGS WHERE SOMEONE SUBMITS SOMETHING TO THE RECORD THIS IS ALL PART OF THAT PROCESS. GETTING THINGS ON THE RECORD, GETTING YOUR FINAL ARGUMENTS IN THE RECORD AND WHEN PEOPLE GO BACK AND READ TENS OF HUNDREDS OF YEARS FROM NOW, THEY SEE IT >> THIS IS THE TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE ONCE THEY ENTER THIS OFFICIAL PERIOD OF DEBATE OVER THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, SIX HOURS DIVIDED EVENLY BETWEEN BOTH SIDES, AND AT THAT POINT IT WILL BE HARDER FOR REPUBLICANS TO CREATE DELAYS. I’M GOING TO GO TO CAPITOL HILL TO MY COLLEAGUE. SHE’S JOINING US LIVE AND CAN HELP US LOOK AHEAD TO WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SENATE. SO, SIMON WE HAVE A DEBT HEARD ABOUT WHO THE HOUSE MANAGERS COULD BE WHY IS THAT SO IMPORTANT TO THE PROCESS? >> Reporter: WELL, THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE KEY FOCAL PEOPLE ON THE SIDE OF THE PROSECUTION WHO ARE GOING TO MAKE THE CASE TO THESE 100 SENATORS, WHY THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE THROWN OUT OF OFFICE WE HAVE SEEN A LITTLE BIT OF QUITE JOCKEYING BEHIND THE SCENES ABOUT WHO GETS TO TAKE THESE VERY PROMINENT ROLES BACK DURING PRESIDENT CLINTON’S TRIAL, THERE WERE 13 HOUSE IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS. IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER IT WOULD BE FEWER THAN THAT THIS TIME OR MORE THAN THAT, BUT THESE ARE VERY PROMINENT ROLES THAT THESE HOUSE DEMOCRATS WILL TAKE AT — DURING SUCH A HISTORIC TIME. THERE’S ALSO A LOT OF FOCUS ABOUT WHO’S GOING TO BE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ATTORNEYS WILL BE SITTING KIND OF ON THE OTHER SIDE IN THE SENATE FROM THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT MANAGER WE EXPECT THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL TO BE ONE OF THE PEOPLE LEADING THE CASE TO DEFEND THE PRESIDENT THERE HAVE BEEN SOME CHATTER IN RECENT DAYS ABOUT RECRUITING HOUSE REPUBLICANS, THOSE REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS HAVE BEEN THE DEFENDERS ON CAPITOL HILL PARTICULARLY DURING THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AND THAT COULD BE DONE AS WELL. BUT YES, THIS IS A SERIES OF A LOT OF THINGS THAT HAVE TO TAKE PLACE BEFORE THE SENATE TRIAL CAN EVEN BEGIN I WILL POINT OUT THAT THE TWO TOP SENATE LEADERS AS MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL AND MAJORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER HAVE NOT EVEN SAT DOWN TO DISCUSS EVEN THE BASIC PARAMETERS OF THE TRIAL AND THERE’S A LOT OF NASTINESS BETWEEN THEM ALREADY PUBLICLY SPILLING OUT SO WE WILL SEE HOW MUCH PROGRESS THE TWO LEADERS CAN MAKE AHEAD OF WHEN THE TRIAL BEGINS >> OKAY. WE HAVE HEARD A LOT FROM RITA McCONNELL AND LEADER SCHUMER OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. YOU KNOW, GIVE US THE LATEST ON WHAT EACH OF THOSE TWO LEADERS WHO REPRESENT THEIR PARTIES ARE SAYING ABOUT HOW THEY ARE PLANNING TO GO IN TO A JANUARY TRIAL >> Reporter: SO, THEY HAVE TAKEN TWO VERY DIFFERENT VIEWS ON THE KEY QUESTION OF WITNESSES NOW MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL HAD PRIVATELY FOR SOME TIME AND NOW PUBLICLY THROUGH A SERIES OF INTERVIEWS AND TALKING WITH THOSE REPORTERS HAD MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE DOES NOT THINK WITNESSES ARE NECESSARY.’S STRATEGY HERE IS TO GIVE WHAT HE BELIEVES WOULD BE AMPLE FOR BOTH THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS AND FOR THE PRESIDENTS DEFENSE ATTORNEYS TO MAKE THEIR CASE TO THE SENATORS. BACK IN 1999, EACH SIDE HAD 24 HOURS TOTAL ON THE SENATE FLOOR, SO THAT, YOU KNOW, IF YOU KIND OF ESTIMATE THAT, COULD BE ABOUT TWO WEEKS FOR EACH SIDE TO FULLY MAKE THEIR CASE. AND AT THAT POINT, McCONNELL AND OTHER SENIOR REPUBLICANS HOPED THAT MOST OF THE SENATE, 51 SENATORS WILL HOPEFULLY HAVE HEARD ENOUGH AND BE READY TO MOVE ON TO A FINAL VOTE ON WHETHER TO ACQUIT OR CONVICT PRESIDENT TRUMP. NOW, CHUCK SCHUMER, THE LEADER FOR THE DEMOCRATS IS SAYING THAT IS NOT ENOUGH AND HE KIND OF FIRED THIS OPENING ON SATURDAY NIGHT WITH A LIST OF FOUR WITNESSES, FOR TRUMP ADMINISTRATORS, CURRENT AND FORMER WHO SAY THEY HAVE TO COME BEFORE THE SENATE AS WITNESSES BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T BEEN HEARD FROM DURING THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. NOW, THAT KIND OF TRIGGERS THIS ALREADY RANCOROUS -FOR-TAT BETWEEN THE TWO LEADERS HE WROTE A LETTER TO McCONNELL McCALL NOTICE THAT OR POINTED OUT THAT HE RELEASED IT TO THE PRESS BEFORE ACTUALLY GIVING IT TO McCONNELL. SCHUMER HAS DONE A ROUND OF INTERVIEWS ON TELEVISION AND WITH OTHER VERY VARIOUS NEWS MEDIA, TRYING TO MAKE THE CASE AND TRYING TO MESSAGE OUT TO THE PUBLIC WHY THESE WITNESSES ARE SO IMPORTANT, McCONNELL HAS RESPONDED IN KIND SAYING HE WILL

NEGOTIATE WITH SCHUMER AT SOME POINT, BUT THAT HE WAS DEAD WRONG ON HIS VIEW, HE HAS CRITICIZED SCHUMER FOR SAYING HE DIDN’T WANT WITNESSES BACK DURING THE CLINTON TRIAL BUT HE WANTS THEM NOW >> ALRIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. YOU KNOW, THERE’S A LOT OF PRESSURE ABOUT HOW TODAY SETS UP THINGS IN THE SENATE SINCE WE DO HAVE AN EXPECTATION OF WHAT THE CONCLUSION IS TODAY AND SO AMBER, WHAT CAN PLAY OUT TODAY THAT COULD INFLUENCE THE NEXT STEP? >> AGAIN, IF THIS IS A PURELY PARTISAN VOTE AND ALL REPUBLICANS VOTE NOT TO IMPEACH TRUMP ON BOTH COUNTS, THAT SETS THEM — SENDS A MESSAGE TO ANY REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO MIGHT BE ON THE FENCE ABOUT WHETHER TO CONVICT HIM IN THE SENATE THAT REPUBLICANS ME HOUSE HAVE STUCK BY THE PRESIDENT. THEY HAVE SHOWN REMARKABLE UNITY AND IT’S JUST LESS POLITICAL WIGGLE ROOM FOR EXAMPLE GOVERNOR OF COLORADO. MITT ROMNEY OF UTAH, TO LIKE STEP OUT ALONE AND VOTE TO CONVICT TRUMP. THE OTHER THING THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS WHAT SOMEONE TALKED ABOUT, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE HOUSE MANAGERS, LIKELY, I BELIEVE THAT IS THE PLAN. TO ANNOUNCE THEM AND VOTE ON THE LEADER TODAY SO WE WILL KNOW WHO WILL BE ESSENTIALLY PROSECUTION IN THE SENATE TRIAL AND THEN, I THINK THE FINAL THING I WILL SAY IS CHUCK SCHUMER AND MITCH McCONNELL, THE DEMOCRATIC LEADER AND THE SENATE REPUBLIC REPUBLICAN LEADER ARE WAITING FOR THIS MODE TO HAPPEN IT SEEMS LIKE TO GET TOGETHER AND SAY, OKAY, THIS IS REALLY COMING TO US. WE ARE REALLY GOING TO HOLD THE THIRD SENATE TRIAL IN AMERICAN HISTORY, HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS? AND THAT POINT A LOT OF THEIR PUBLIC OR MORE IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE RESOLVED >> WELL, AND I THINK, DEAR POINT IN TERMS OF KIND OF THE REPUBLICAN COHESIVENESS ON THIS, RIGHT, THEM STICKING TOGETHER, OUR COLLEAGUE PHILIP PROMPTED ANNOUNCEMENTS ON THIS YESTERDAY IN TERMS OF REPUBLICANS IN SWING DISTRICTS WHO ARE OVERWHELMINGLY — WHO ARE ALL EXPECTED, I SHOULD SAY, TO VOTE AGAINST BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TODAY McGRATH IN SWING DISTRICTS FOR THE MOST PART ARE PLANNING TO VOTE FOR THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. BUT, THIS ALSO SHOWS KIND OF THE POWER THAT TRUMP HAS OVER THE PARTY, RIGHT? WHERE A LOT OF THESE REPUBLICANS IN SWING DISTRICTS ARE MORE AFRAID OF A PRIMARY CHALLENGE IN MANY CASES THAN WHO THEY ARE GOING TO FACE IN THE GENERAL ELECTION AND BECAUSE OF THAT, IT IS MORE POLITICALLY EXPEDIENT, IF YOU WILL, TO STICK WITH TRUMP, KIND OF THROUGH THICK AND THIN. RIGHT? AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE EXAMPLES TODAY. WHERE YOU ARE SEEING SO MANY OF THESE MODERATE REPUBLICANS IN SWING DISTRICTS WHO ARE ALL EXPECTED TO VOTE AGAINST BOTH ARTICLES TODAY >> THOSE DEMOCRATS YOU HAVE BEEN KEEPING ACCOUNT OF AND WHAT IS MOTIVATING THEM, NOW, WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE SPEAKER’S OFFICE THAT SHE IS NOT WHIPPING THE VOTE SO TO SPEAK, SHE WASN’T PUTTING PRESSURE ON PEOPLE ENCOURAGING THEM. SHE ALSO KNOWS, THOUGH, THAT THEY MAY HAVE TO VOTE IN A WAY THAT THEIR DISTRICT WILL ACCEPT, OTHERWISE THEY MAY LOSE THEIR SEAT BUT, WHAT DO YOU SENSE THAT MEMBERS HAVE BEEN WEIGHING AS THEY HAVE GRAPPLED WITH THIS? >> WELL, THE EMPHASIS FROM DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP HAS BEEN KIND OF VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE ON THIS. NUMBERS, WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN ASKED ABOUT WELL, IS SHE REALLY NOT WHIPPING THIS RIGHT? WHY WOULD SHE BRING SOMETHING TO THE FLOOR? IF SHE EXPECTED IT TO FAIL? THEY HAVE ALL FOR THE MOST PART SAID THAT NO THEY HAVEN’T GOTTEN ANY PRESSURE, WHATSOEVER FROM DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP TO VOTE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ON THIS I THINK THAT DEMOCRATS ALSO, THOUGH, AGAIN, GOING BACK TO THAT OCTOBER VOTE, HAD AN INITIAL MARKER IN TERMS OF KIND OF THE SUPPORT FOR THIS, AND WE ALSO SAW, EVEN WHEN THE FIRST DETAILS OF THE UKRAINE CALL AND THE PRESSURE CAMPAIGN WERE COMING OUT, HOW MANY DEMOCRATS SUDDENLY CAME ON BOARD FOR IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY BACK IN AUGUST, SEPTEMBER. WHEN SO MANY HAD HELD OFF AFTER THE MUELLER REPORT CAME OUT. SO, THAT REALLY KIND OF SIGNALED A SHIFT WITHIN THE PARTY. THE OTHER THING I WOULD NOTE IS RONALD BROWNSON PUT OUT SOME INTERESTING ANALYSIS ON THIS GOING BACK TO CLINTON IMPEACHMENT. THERE’S KIND OF THIS MYTH, IF YOU WILL, THAT THE QUESTION ABOUT HOW THAT HOW MUCH THAT PROCESS HURT REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE, RIGHT, WHO VOTED TO HIM PREACH IMPEACH PRESIDENT CLINTON. AT THE TIME, THERE WERE 91 HOUSE REPUBLICANS WHO REPRESENTED DISTRICTS THAT CLINTON HAD ONE IN 1996. OVER THE NEXT TWO ELECTIONS, ONLY SEVEN OF THEM LOST THEIR SEATS RIGHT, SO, I THINK TO YOUR ORIGINAL POINT, DEMOCRATS ARE ALSO HAVE AN EQUATION HERE THAT WE ARE NOT ACTUALLY CONVINCED THAT THIS IS GOING TO HURT OUR MEMBERS. MANY OF WHOM REPRESENT SUBURBAN DISTRICTS AND DISTRICTS THAT HAVE BEEN SORT OF TRENDING AWAY FROM SUPPORT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, RIGHT? SO YOU HAVE TO IMAGINE THAT THERE

IS KIND OF A POLITICAL CALCULUS THAT LEADS AT LEAST IN THE BACK OF THE MINDS OF DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP. THE LAST THING THEY WANT TO DO IS LOSE THE HOUSE GOING INTO 2020 FOUR, 2020 WHEN I SHOULD SAY BUT, IT IS INTERESTING TO PUT THINGS IN HISTORICAL CONTEXT, TO SAY, OKAY, HOW DOES THIS POTENTIALLY PLAY OUT? DOES THIS POTENTIALLY IMPACT THOSE 31 HOUSE DEMOCRATS WHO REPRESENT THOSE DISTRICTS THAT TRUMP ONE IN 2016 >> I APPRECIATE THAT INSIGHT. WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING TO SEE HOW THEY WOULD VOTE , REPUBLICANS HAVE ALSO BEEN WATCHING TO SEE HOW THESE MODERATE DEMOCRATS MIGHT COME OUT. AND THEY MADE A LOT OF HAY OUT OF ONE MEMBER IN PARTICULAR AND WE EXPECT THEM TO DO MORE OF THAT, DAN >> RIGHT, RIGHT. AND AT THIS POINT ACCORDING TO OUR COUNT, WE HAVE ONLY GOT TO DEMOCRATS IN THE GROUP OF 31 , JEFF ANDREW WHO MAY SOON BE SWITCHING PARTIES AND COLLIN PETERSON. BOTH OF WHOM BY THE WAY VOTED AGAINST THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY BACK IN OCTOBER, THE FORMALIZING OF IT THOSE ARE THE ONLY TWO AT THIS POINT THAT WE ARE TRACKING OF VOTING AGAINST ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. THERE IS ONE UNKNOWN IN THAT 31 GROUP OUT OF WISCONSIN WHO SEEMED TO INDICATE YESTERDAY, THE REPORTERS THAT WE WOULD FIND OUT WHEN HE PASSED THE FINAL VOTE ON THE FLOOR. WE WILL SEE IF THAT COMES TO BEAR OR SOMETHING OUT COMES UP BEFORE THEN >> THE CASE OF JEFF ANDREW IS ONE THAT THE DEMOCRATS PERHAPS TURNING INTO A REPUBLICAN, FROM NEW JERSEY IS THE ONE THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE ALREADY BEEN THROWING IT OUT >> RIGHT. A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE AND IMPEACHMENT VOTE TWO, ACCORDING TO THE COLLEAGUES ESSENTIALLY PULL ANDREWS ASIDE, HAVE HIM IN A LENGTHY MEETING AND CONVINCE HIM, IT SEEMS. HE HASN’T DONE IT OFFICIALLY. BUT TO SWITCH PARTIES. AND JEFF ANDREW IS SOMEONE WHO FLIPPED A FEVER DEMOCRATS LAST YEAR IN 2018. KICKED OUT A REPUBLICAN IN ONE OF THESE SUBURBAN RULE DISTRICTS THAT DEMOCRATS NEED TO HANG ONTO TO MAINTAIN THEIR MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE NEXT YEAR BUT HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN WAY MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN THE REST OF THE PARTY. HOWEVER, HIS VOTE, YOU KNOW, NOT WHAT HE SAID VOTED, BUT THE THING THAT HAS SEPARATED HIM ON HIS VOTES IS HE DOESN’T WANT TO SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT. HE’S ALREADY TECHNICALLY VOTED AGAINST THIS WHEN HE VOTED AGAINST THE RULES FOR IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY MY BOTTOM POINT IS, THIS IS A BIG ONE FOR TRUMP BECAUSE IT HELPS HIM TECHNICALLY SAY, LOOK, MY IMPEACHMENT IS SO UNFAIR. IT IS BIPARTISAN SUPPORT AGAINST IMPEACHING ME AND ONLY DEMOCRATS SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT. FOR IT IS SO INTERESTING. ALSO A NEW JERSEY DEMOCRAT WAS LIKE THIS GUY DIDN’T REALLY AMOUNT TO MUCH OF ANYTHING ANYWAY SO FELLOW DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO DOWNPLAY HIS IMPORTANCE EVEN FROM HIS HOME STATE. AT THE OTHER HAND WE SEE REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO SAY THEY’RE GOING TO HELP STAFF HIS OFFICE BECAUSE HIS STAFFERS RESIGNED BECAUSE THEY ARE DEMOCRATS. THEY WALKED >> WHAT IS ALSO INTERESTING ABOUT THE EVENT OR SITUATION HERE IS RIGHT NOW HE IS STILL A DEMOCRAT, WE ARE EXPECTING HIM TO VOTE AGAINST BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TODAY. SO REPUBLICANS WILL LIKELY FLOAT THE SAME TALKING POINT THAT THEY DID FOR THE INQUIRY THERE WAS A BIPARTISAN VOTE AGAINST IMPEACHMENT, RIGHT? AND THEN, DAYS LATER, HE MAY SWITCH PARTIES AND BECOME A REPUBLICAN SO, THERE IS AN INTERESTING DYNAMIC THERE WHERE IT FEEDS KIND OF RIDE INTO ONE OF THE TALKING POINTS THAT WE HAVE SEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HOUSE REPUBLICANS FLOAT IN THIS IMPEACHMENT PROCESS >> LET’S TALK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE HOUSE FLOOR RIGHT NOW. THE TIME IS OUT FOR THE VOTE, BUT THEY MAY HOLD IT OPEN. WE WILL SEE WHEN THEY GAMBLE BACK IN, BUT IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING, WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON, THIS WAS A RESOLUTION FROM KEVIN McCARTHY. LEADERSHIP AMONG REPUBLICANS. AGAINST ADAM SCHIFF AND JERRY NADLER. SO, TO CONDEMN SHIFT AND NADLER AND WE HEARD THAT READING, THAT SORT OF EMOTIONLESS READING, WHICH IS TYPICAL OF HOW THE CLERK’S OFFICE CONDUCTS THEMSELVES. WE HEARD THE ACCUSATIONS. BUT THEN, DEMOCRAT PUT FORTH A MOTION TO TABLE THAT. YOU SEE DEMOCRATS VOTING FOR THE MOST PART, YEA TO TABLE THIS. TO PUT IT ASIDE. IF YOU SEE A YEA VOTE IT IS TO SUPPORT SCHIFF AND NADLER >> YEAH, IT IS AN INTERESTING CASE THAT THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO MAKE WITH THIS RESOLUTION. THEY TALK ABOUT THE IDEA THAT SCHIFF AND NADLER ABUSED THEIR POWER . AT CHAIRMAN OF THE INTELLIGENCE AND JUDICIARY COMMITTEES DURING THIS PROCESS. AND IT IS IN FACT NEEDING TO SEE REPUBLICANS ADOPT THIS TALKING POINT THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE ACTUALLY THE ONES ABUSING POWER AS IN FACT, IT IS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEING ACCUSED IN THE FIRST ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT OF ABUSING POWER. IT REMINDS ME A

LITTLE BIT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP ON THE 2016 CAMPAIGN TRAIL HE WOULD OFTEN SEE HIM ACTUALLY AT TIMES EFFECTIVELY TAKE A DEMOCRATIC TALKING POINT AGAINST HIM, TURN THEM AROUND AND USE THEM AGAINST DEMOCRATS. I THINK REPUBLICANS HERE HAVE REALLY TAKEN CUES FROM TRUMP, TAKING CUES FROM HIS STRATEGY AND ARE TRYING TO CONVINCE THE PUBLIC THAT IN FACT WE ARE SEEING AN ABUSE OF POWER HERE, BUT IT IS THE DEMOCRATS, NOT THE REPUBLICANS >> I HEARD THE GAVEL, LET’S CHECK OUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE HOUSE FLOOR >> THE YEA’S ARE 226. THE NAY’S ARE 291 191. THE MOTION IS ADOPTED WITHOUT OBJECTION, THE MOTION TO RECONSIDER IS LAID ON THE TABLE SO, GENTLEMEN, MASSACHUSETTS RISE. SCHEMATIC I CALL A POST RESOLUTION 767 AND ASK FOR ITS IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION >> SUPPORT TO RESOLUTION >> HOUSE CALENDAR NUMBER 63 HOUSE RESOLUTION NUMBER 767, RESULTS. THAT IMMEDIATELY UPON ADOPTION OF THIS RESOLUTION WITHOUT INTERMISSION OF ANY POINT OF ORDER, THE HOUSE SHALL PROCEED TO BE CONSIDERATION OF THE HOUSE, IN THE HOUSE OF THE RESOLUTION, HOUSE RESOLUTION 755.

THE PREVIOUS QUESTION SHALL BE CONSIDERED AS ORDERED ON THE RESOLUTION AS AMENDED. TO ADOPTION WITHOUT INTERVENING MOTION OR DEMAND FOR DIVISION OF THE QUESTION AND EXCEPT AS FOLLOWS.

AFTER ADOPTION OF HOUSE RESOLUTION 735, IT SHOULD BE IN ORDER WITHOUT PREVENTION OF ANY POINT OF ORDER TO CONSIDER IN THE HOUSE A RESOLUTION APPOINTING AND AUTHORIZING MANAGERS FOR THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IF OFFERED BY THE CHAIR, THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY OR HIS DESIGNATED, THE PREVIOUS QUESTION SHALL BE CONSIDERED AS ORDERED ON THE RESOLUTION TO ADOPTION WITHOUT INTERVENING MOTION OR DEMAND FOR DIVISION OF THE QUESTION EXCEPT 10 MINUTES OF DEBATE EQUALLY DIVIDED AND CONTROLLED BY THE CHAIR AND RANKING MINORITY MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY. NO OTHER RESOLUTION TO IMPEACHMENT RELATING TO HOUSE RESOLUTION 755 SHALL BE PRIVILEGED DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE 116th CONGRESS SECTION 4, THE CHAIR OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY MANSARD ON THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD SUCH MATERIAL AS HE MAY DEEM EXPLANATORY OF, A, HOUSE RESOLUTION 755, NOT LATER THAN THE DATE THAT IS FIVE LEGISLATIVE DAYS AFTER ADOPTION THEREOF AND B, THE RESOLUTION SPECIFIED IN SECTION 3 OF THIS RESOLUTION, NOT LATER THAN THE DATE THAT IS FIVE LEGISLATIVE DAYS AFTER ADOPTION THEREOF >> DOES THE GENTLEMAN FROM LOUISIANA SEEK RECOGNITION? >> MADAME SPEAKER, I WAS A POINT OF ORDER AGAINST 767 FOR FAILURE — >> THE POINT OF ORDER >> I RAISE THIS POINT OF ORDER FOR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE THE WAIVER CLAUSE TUESDAY 1/11 PURSUANT TO CLAUSE 6G OF RULE 13, WHICH REQUIRED THE RULES COMMITTEE TO SPECIFY THE REPORT , ANY WAIVER OF A POINT OF ORDER AGAINST A MEASURE OF CONSIDERATION AND MADAME SPEAKER, THIS UNDERLYING RESOLUTION VIOLATES CLAUSE TODAY ONE OF RULE 11, WHICH ENTITLES THE MINORITY OF THE COMMITTEE TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO CALL WITNESSES TO TESTIFY DURING AT LEAST ONE DAY OF A HEARING ON ANY GIVEN MEASURE. THIS WAS NOT AFFORDED TO THE DIGESTION JUDICIARY MEMBERS BY CONSIDERATION OF THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT DESPITE NUMEROUS REQUESTS BY THE MINORITY MEMBERS. THEREFORE I RAISE A POINT OF ORDER AGAINST CONSIDERATION OF THE RULE AND THE UNDERLYING RESOLUTION FOR THE VIOLATION OF MINORITY RIGHTS AND THE DENIAL OF THIS EVIDENCE TO BE PUT INTO THE RECORD AND SECURING WHICH THE HOUSE RULES REQUIRE, WHICH WAS NOT COMPLIED WITH AND WAS DENIED I WOULD URGE THE ENFORCEMENT OF THIS ROLE

>> GENTLEMAN FROM LOUISIANA SPEAKS TO RAISE A POINT OF ORDER AGAINST HOUSE RESOLUTION 767 AND THE GROUNDS THAT A REPORT ACCOMPANYING THE RESOLUTION FAILED TO SPECIFY A WAIVER OF PARTICULAR POINT OF ORDER AND AND THUS VIOLATION OF 6G OF 13. THE GENTLEMAN IS STATING A MATTER FOR DEBATE, RATHER THAN A PROPER POINT OF ORDER. CLAUSE 6G IS MERELY INFORMATIONAL ON ANY SPECIFIED WAIVERS TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT POSSIBLE THAT IS ELUCIDATED BY CHAIRMAN SOLOMON IN THE LEGISLATIVE HISTORY, ACCOMPANYING THE ADOPTION OF THIS ROLE IN THE 104th CONGRESS, ANY QUOTE FAILURE OF THE RULES COMMITTEE TO SPECIFY WAIVERS IN A RULE WOULD NOT GIVE RIGHT TO A POINT OF ORDER AGAINST THIS SPECIAL RULE THAT WAIVES ALL POINTS OF ORDER. THE CHAIR WOULD THEREFORE ADVISE THE GENTLEMAN AGAIN, THAT HE IS NOT STATING A PROPER POINT OF ORDER. MASSACHUSETTS IS RECOGNIZED >> MADAME SPEAKER FOR THE PURPOSES OF DEBATE ONLY, I YIELD A CUSTOMARY 30 MINUTES TO DISTINGUISH THE GERMAN FROM OKLAHOMAN, MY GOOD FRIEND MISTER COLE, PENDING WHICH I YIELD MYSELF SUCH TIME AS IT MAY CONSUME. DURING CONSIDERATION OF THIS RESOLUTION, ALL-TIME IS YIELDED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DEBATE ONLY ALL CONSENT MEMBERS GIVE FIVE LEGISLATIVE DAYS >> OBJECTION >> MADAME SPEAKER, ON TUESDAY, THE RULES COMMITTEE MET AND REPORTED A CLOSED RULE FOR HOUSE RESOLUTION 767. PROVIDING FOR CONSIDERATION OF EIGHT RED 755 IMPEACHING DONALD JOHN TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS. THE RULE PROVIDES SIX HOURS OF DEBATE EQUALLY DIVIDED AND CONTROLLED BY THE RANKING MEMBER OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE OR THE NEEDS. THE RULE PROVIDES THAT THE QUESTION OF ADOPTION OF THE RESOLUTION SHALL BE DIVIDED BETWEEN TWO ARTICLES. THE ROLE LIMITS ACCESS TO THE HOUSE FLOOR AND PROVIDES THAT ANY TIME AFTER ADOPTION OF THAT FOR CONSIDERATION OF THE RESOLUTION APPOINTING AND AUTHORIZING MANAGERS FOR THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL IF OFFERED BY THE CHAIR OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AVAILABLE FOR 10 MINUTES. NO RESOLUTION INCIDENTAL TO IMPEACHMENT RELATING TO 755 SHALL BE PRIVILEGED DURING THE REMAINDER OF THE 116 CONGRESS. FINALLY, THE RULE PROVIDES THAT THE CHAIR OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE MAY INSERT EXPLANATORY MATERIAL ON THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD. MADAME SPEAKER, 232 YEARS AGO, AS HE WALKED OUT OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION OF PHILADELPHIA, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN STATED THAT THE FOUNDERS HAD JUST CREATED THE REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT. HE UNDERSTOOD THAT NOTHING WAS PREORDAINED. THAT OUR NATION WOULD CONTINUE TO BE SHAPED DECISION BY DECISION, VOTE BY VOTE. NOT BY SOME OTHER LEADERS IN SOME OTHER TIME, BUT DAY IN AND DAY OUT. BOTH THROUGH THE REGULAR WORK OF GOVERNMENT AND DURING HISTORIC MOMENTS LIKE THE ONE WE FACE TODAY. OUR FOUNDERS CRAFTED THE FUNDAMENTAL GUIDE GUIDANCE PASSAGES LIKE ARTICLE 1, SECTION 2 OF THE CONSTITUTION GIVING THIS CHAMBER THE SOLE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT BUT, NOWHERE DOES IT LIST EXACTLY WHAT CONSTITUTES A MISDEMEANOR. THEY UNDERSTOOD THEY CANNOT ANTICIPATE WHAT THE WOULD BRING. THEY GAVE US THE CHANCE TO DECIDE PRECISELY WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT WOULD BECOME. TO DECIDE WITH EACH PASSING DAY, WHAT A NATION DEFINED BY THE RULE OF LAW, TO DECIDE WHICH IS WITH EACH PASSING DAY OR A NATION DEFINED BY THE RULE OF LAW WAS WILLING TO TOLERATE THAT IS WHAT BRINGS US HERE TODAY TO DECIDE NEARLY 2 1/2 CENTURIES LATER WHETHER THE UNITED STATES IS STILL A NATION WHERE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. OR WHETHER AMERICA BECOMES THE LAND RUN BY THOSE WHO ACT MORE LIKE KINGS OR QUEENS. AS IF THE LAW DOESN’T APPLY TO THEM. YES, MADAME SPEAKER, THIS REALLY IS THAT SERIOUS OVER THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS BEEN CONDUCTING AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY INTO THE 45th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, DONALD DONALD JOHN TRUMP. ERIN QUERY IS SIMPLY TO ASK THE QUESTION, DID PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS TOP ADVISERS GRUFFLY WITHHOLD TO OBTAIN AN IMPROPER ADVANTAGE IN THE NEXT ELECTION? WE NOW KNOW, THROUGH THE HARD WORK OF OUR INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEES AND BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT’S OWN ADMISSION THAT THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION IS YES. THE PRESIDENT WITHHELD MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE, A COUNTRY UNDER SIEGE. NOT TO FIGHT CORRUPTION, BUT TO ABSTRACT A PERSONAL POLITICAL FAVOR. PRESIDENT TRUMP REFUSED TO MEET WITH THE PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE UNTIL HE COMPLETED THIS SCHEME. ALL THE WHILE, LEADERS IN RUSSIA , THE VERY NATION HOLDING A LARGE PART OF THE UKRAINE HOSTAGE, THE VERY NATION THAT INTERFERED WITH OUR ELECTIONS

HAD ANOTHER MEETING IN THE OVAL OFFICE JUST LAST WEEK. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ENDANGERED OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. THE PRESIDENT UNDERMINED OUR DEMOCRACY. AND THE PRESIDENT, OF SUCCESSION TO THE SAME OFFICE AS GEORGE WASHINGTON AND ABRAHAM LINCOLN BETRAYED HIS OATH TO PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. THESE AREN’T OPINIONS THESE ARE UNCONTESTED FACTS. I HAVE READ THE DETAILS OF THE JULY 25th PHONE CALL WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID I WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO US A FAVOR, THOUGH. I HAVE SEEN THE TELEVISED PRESS CONFERENCE WHERE HIS CHIEF OF STAFF OPENLY ADMITTED TO THE STEEL AND TOLD THE NATION TO JUST GET OVER IT HOURS AND HOURS OF DEPOSITION BY THE INTELLIGENCE OVERSIGHT AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEES HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED WHERE WITNESSES OUTLINE THE PRESIDENTS DIRECT INVOLVEMENT IN THIS GAME. THE EVIDENCE IS AS CLEAR AS IT IS OVERWHELMING IF A PRESIDENT UNDERMINING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND USING THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN IS NOT IMPEACHABLE CONDUCT, THEN I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS. NOW, I HAVE HEARD SOME ON THE OTHER SIDE SUGGEST THIS PROCESS IS ABOUT OVERTURNING AN ELECTION. THAT IS ABSURD. THIS IS ABOUT PROTECTING OUR DEMOCRACY. THESE FACTS ARE BEYOND DISPUTE. THE ONLY QUESTION NOW IS WHETHER WE ARE WILLING TO TOLERATE SUCH CONDUCT. NOT JUST TODAY BY PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUT FURTHERMORE BY ANY PRESIDENT OF EITHER PARTY. TO SET A DANGEROUS PRESIDENTS. NOT JUST FOR THIS PRESIDENT BUT FOR EVERY FUTURE PRESIDENT. 11 MONTHS AGO, MANY OF US TOOK AN OATH RIGHT HERE IN THIS CHAMBER. I’VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO TAKE THAT OATH 12 TIMES NOW AND I BELIEVE IT IS NOT JUST FOR SHOW. IT IS A CONTRACT BETWEEN EACH OF US AND THE PEOPLE WE REPRESENT, TO PLACE THE NATIONAL INTEREST ABOVE PARTISAN INTERESTS. AND TO PRESERVE THOSE LAWS THAT MAKE OUR COUNTRY UNIQUE. WE CANNOT RECONCILE THE PRESIDENTS ABUSE OF POWER AND OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS WITH THE OATH OF OFFICE THAT RETOOK. MADAME SPEAKER, WE ARE BEING TESTED ON SOMETHING GREATER THAN OUR ABILITY TO TELL A PARTYLINE. SOMETHING MORE THAN OUR ABILITY TO SCORE THE NEXT GREAT TELEVISION SOUNDBITE. THIS IS A DEMOCRACY DEFINING MOMENT HISTORY WILL JUDGE US BY WHETHER WE KEEP INTACT, THE FRAGILE REPUBLIC HANDED DOWN TO US BY OUR FOREBEARS OR THAN 200 YEARS AGO. OR WHETHER WE ALLOW IT TO BE CHANGED FOREVER FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY’S FUTURE. I HOPE, AND I PRAY THAT MY COLLEAGUES WILL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION. I RESERVE THE BALANCE OF MY TIME >> GERMAN RESERVES. SETTLEMENT FROM OKLAHOMA >> THINK YOU MADAME SPEAKER NOW, THE SPEAKER, HIKING, GOOD FRIEND FROM MASSACHUSETTS, FOR YIELDING ME THE CUSTOMARY 30 MINUTES. I YIELD MYSELF SUCH TIME AS I MAY CONSUME >> AND ALMONDS RECOGNIZED >> THINK YOU MADAME SPEAKER TODAY IS A VERY SAD DAY FOR ALL OF US. FOR ME, PERSONALLY, FOR THE RULES COMMITTEE. THE ENTIRE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND MOST IMPORTANT THEY, FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE SECOND TIME IN MY LIFE, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WILL BE VOTING TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. BUT UNLIKE IN 1998, THE DECISION TO HAVE THIS VOTE IS NOT THE RESULT OF A BIPARTISAN PROCESS, NOR AN OPEN OR FAIR PROCESS. INSTEAD, IT IS GOING TO BE A DEEPLY PARTISAN VOTE COMING AT THE END OF A NON-FAIR AND RUSH PROCESS PRESCRIBED SOLELY BY DEMOCRATS TO ENSURE A PREDETERMINED RESULT. IMPEACHMENT OF A PRESIDENT IS ONE OF THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ACTS THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CAN UNDERTAKE AND IT SHOULD ONLY BE DONE AFTER THE FULLEST AND MOST CAREFUL CONSIDERATION. YET, TODAY, AFTER A TRUNCATED INVESTIGATION THAT DENIED THE PRESIDENT DUE PROCESS, CHERRY PICKED EVIDENCE AND WITNESSED TESTIMONY TO FIT THEIR NARRATIVE, AND TRAMPLED ON REPUBLICAN MINORITY RIGHTS, DEMOCRATS IN THE HOUSE ARE PRESSING FORWARD FOR THE PARTISAN IMPEACHMENT VOTE. DOING SO CONTRADICTS SPEAKER PELOSI’S OWN WORDS BACK IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR. WHEN SHE SAID THAT QUOTE AN IMPEACHMENT IS SO DIVISIVE TO THE COUNTRY THAT UNLESS THERE IS SOMETHING SO COMPELLING AND OVERWHELMING AND BIPARTISAN, I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD GO DOWN THAT PATH BECAUSE IT DIVIDES THE COUNTRY BUT, IF WE ARE REALLY BEING HONEST, DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR REASON TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP SINCE THE DAY HE WAS ELECTED. IN DECEMBER OF 2017, A CURRENT MEMBER OF THE MAJORITY FORCED A VOTE TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND EVEN THEN, LONG BEFORE THERE WAS AN EVEN AN IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION, 58 DEMOCRATS VOTED TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND THOSE MEMBERS HAVE ONLY GROWN SINCE THEN. TO THEM NOT TO

THE POINT WHERE THE MAJORITY IS NOW PUSHING FORWARD WITH A FINAL VOTE ON IMPEACHMENT, NEVUS OF WHERE IT TAKES THE COUNTRY AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE PROVEN THEIR CASE. AND MY COLLEAGUES IN THE MAJORITY BELIEVE THEY HAVE PROVEN THEIR CASE, LET ME BE CLEAR. THEY HAVE NOT. THE ENTIRE PREMISE OF THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT REST ON A PAUSE PLACE ON UKRAINIAN SECURITY ASSISTANCE. A PAUSE OF 55 DAYS. THE MAJORITY HAS SPUN CREATIVE NARRATIVES AFTER THE MEETING AND THE MOTIVE OF THIS PAUSE. ALLEGING THE PRESIDENT DEMANDED A QUOTE QUID PRO QUO UNQUOTE. BUT WITH NO FACTUAL EVIDENCE TO BACK IT UP SECURITY AIDS TO UKRAINE WAS RELEASED. THE ADMINISTRATION DID SO WITHOUT THE RETRAIN EVER INITIATING INVESTIGATION INTO ANYONE OR ANYTHING IT IS EVEN MORE STARTLING TO ME THAT THE MAJORITY WANTS TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS RESOLUTION GIVEN HOW SUBSTANTIALLY FLAWED AND PROCEDURALLY DEFECTIVE THE ENTIRE PROCESS HAS BEEN. THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, WHICH DRAFTED THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ENGAGED IN AN ABBREVIATED PROCESS HEARING FROM NO WITNESSES WITH FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE OF THE EVENTS IN QUESTION. THEY DID NOT CONDUCT THEIR OWN INVESTIGATION AND ONLY HELD TWO HEARINGS ON THIS TOPIC BEFORE DRAFTING THE ARTICLES ONE WAS STAFFED AND WAS AND ONE WAS CONSTITUTIONAL LAW SCHOLARS THAT IS HARDLY THE TYPE OF LENGTHY AND SERIOUS CONSIDERATION A TOPIC AS GRAVE AS IMPEACHMENT DEMANDS. THE COMMITTEE ACTUALLY CHARGED WITHIN IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION WAS THE PERMANENT SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE. NOT THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. BUT THAT COMMITTEE, TOO, FOLLOWED A PRIMARILY CLOSE PROCESS REPUBLICANS WERE DENIED THE RIGHT TO CALL WITNESSES OR SUBPOENA DOCUMENTS. AND THE PRESIDENT WAS DENIED THE RIGHT TO REPRESENTATION IN THE COMMITTEE’S HEARINGS. WITHOUT RESPECTING MINORITY RIGHTS AND WITHOUT RESPECTING DUE PROCESS RIGHTS OF THE PRESIDENT, HOW CAN ANYONE CONSIDER THIS A FAIR PROCESS? MOM SPEAKER, IT GETS WORSE. THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT WE ARE CONSIDERING TODAY ARE BASED ON THE SHIFT REPORT. THE FINAL DOCUMENT PRODUCED BY THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE AND TRANSMITTED TO THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE., THE SHIFT REPORT INCLUDES UNSUBSTANTIATED ALLEGATIONS , IT INCLUDES IN SOME CASES, SOME NEWS REPORTS AS THE ONLY EVIDENCE SUPPORTING SO-CALLED FACTUAL ASSERTIONS AND IT INCLUDES AT LEAST 54 MISSING HEARSAY AS ASSERTION OF EVIDENCE WITHOUT ANY FIRSTHAND INFORMATION FROM WITNESSES TO COOPERATE THOSE STATEMENTS. CHAIRMAN SCHIFF WAS NEVER QUESTIONED BY THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND THEY REFUSED TO SIT FOR QUESTIONS OR EXPLAIN HOW THIS COMMITTEE CONDUCTED ITS INVESTIGATION. IN FACT, DURING THE STAFF PRESENTATION OF EVIDENCE THAT THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE RANKING MEMBER COLLINS ASKED HOW THE INVESTIGATION WAS CONDUCTED THAT RESULTED IN THE DRAFTING OF THE SHIFT REPORT. BUT, HE NEVER RECEIVED AN ANSWER. DURING THE RULES COMMITTEE CONSIDERATION OF HOUSE RESOLUTION 755, THERE WERE NUMEROUS TIMES WHEN THE MEMBERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE POSTED QUESTIONS TO OUR WITNESSES. QUESTIONS THEY COULD NOT ANSWER, BECAUSE THEY SIT ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND WERE NOT THE AUTHOR OF THE REPORT THAT BROUGHT ABOUT 755. THE AUTHOR HAS NEVER APPEARED BEFORE MEMBERS OF THE MINORITY TO EXPLAIN A SINGLE THING IN THE REPORT OR TO PROVIDE MANY OF THE ASSERTIONS THAT CONTAINS. MADAME SPEAKER, THIS IS NO WAY TO GO ABOUT IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE ARTICLES BEFORE US ARE BASED ON VERY LIMITED INFORMATION. THEY ARE BASED ON HEARSAY , ON NEWS REPORTS, AND ON OTHER UNSUPPORTED ALLEGATIONS. THEY ARE BASED ON A REPORT WRITTEN BY A MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT IT AND I DO NOT BELIEVE THE ALLEGATIONS, WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO INTERPRETATION ACTUALLY RISE TO THE LEVEL OF AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, WHEN REPUBLICANS ATTEMPTED TO EXERCISE ONE OF THEIR RIGHTS UNDER HOUSE RULES, THEY WERE SHUT DOWN BY CHAIRMAN NADLER UNDER CLAUSE 2J1 OF RULE 11, THE MAJORITY, THE MINORITY IS ALLOWED TO DEMAND A MINORITY HEARING DAY. ON DECEMBER FOURTH, THE REPUBLICANS ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE PROPERLY EXERCISED THAT RIGHT AND TRANSMITTED THE DEMAND TO CHAIRMAN NADLER FOR A HEARING DATE AT WHICH THE MINORITY COULD CALL THEIR OWN WITNESSES. AND TO BE CLEAR, MADAME SPEAKER, A MINORITY HEARING DAY IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE CHAIR’S DISCRETION. IT IS A RIGHT AND REPUBLICANS ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE PROPERLY DEMANDED THE EXERCISE OF THAT

RIGHT. AND YET, CHAIRMAN NADLER DECLINED TO ALLOW THE MINORITY HEARING DAY TO BE HELD BEFORE THE VOTING OF THESE ARTICLES. I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER FOR THE INSTITUTION AND FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO ALLOW ALL VOICES TO BE HEARD AND ALL WITNESSES TO BE QUESTIONED BEFORE PROCEEDING TO A VOTE ON SOMETHING AS THIS INCONSEQUENTIAL. AND YET, THE MAJORITY TRAMPLED ON THAT RIGHT BUT I SUPPOSE I SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED BY ANY OF THIS. WHEN THE HOUSE PASSED H READ 660, THE RESOLUTION SETTING UP THE OFFICIAL IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY LESS THAN TWO MONTHS AGO, I WARNED THAT THE MAJORITY WAS DOING WAS SETTING UP A CLOSED UNFAIR PROCESS THAT COULD ONLY HAVE ONE OUTCOME. AND TODAY, WE ARE SEEING THE END RESULT OF THIS CLOSED AND UNFAIR PROCESS A QUICK RUSH TO JUDGMENT FORCED THROUGH NOT ONE, BUT TWO COMMITTEES IN SHORT ORDER WITH MINORITY RIGHTS TRAMPLED, WITNESSES LEFT UNQUESTIONED AND DUE PROCESS IGNORED. IT IS ALSO DISAPPOINTING THAT MEMBERS ARE NOT BEING GIVEN MORE TIME TO DEBATE THIS ISSUE ON THE FLOOR. LAST NIGHT, THE RULES COMMITTEE, I OFFERED AN AMENDMENT TO DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF THE DEBATE FROM 6 TO 12 HOURS. THIS WOULD ALLOWED FOR ROUGHLY THE SAME AMOUNT OF DEBATE TIME USED IN THE CLINTON IMPEACHMENT AND IT WOULD’VE ENSURED THAT ALL MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK ON THE FLOOR. UNFORTUNATELY THAT AMENDMENT WAS NOT SIX ACCEPTED I KNOW HE DID THE BEST HE COULD, I DO THINK IT IS IRONIC THAT WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE, THE 13 MEMBERS OF THE RULES COMMITTEE SPENT MORE TIME DISCUSSING DISCUSSING H RISE IN COMMITTEE YESTERDAY THEN WE WILL SPEND DEBATING IT ON THE HOUSE FLOOR FOR EVERY MEMBER TODAY. I THINK THAT IS A DISSERVICE TO THE MEMBERS OF THIS BODY AND TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. MADAME SPEAKER, WE DESERVE BETTER THAN A FLAWED PROCESS THAT LED TO THE FLAWED OUTCOME MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER THAN WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE TODAY. I OPPOSE FORCE-FEEDING ANY FURTHER, I PROPOSE THE RULE. I OPPOSE THIS LIMITED AND UNFAIR PROCESS AND I CERTAINLY OPPOSE IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. WITH THAT, I URGE OPPOSITION TO THE RULE AND I RESERVE THE BALANCE OF MY TIME >> GENTLEMAN RESERVES SETTLEMENT FOR MASSACHUSETTS >> MADAME SPEAKER I WOULD LIKE TO ASK UNANIMOUS CONSENT, I WANT TO INSERT IN THE RECORD A STATEMENT, A LETTER THAT I SENT WITH REGARD TO THE MEMBERS DAY I WANT TO CORRECT THEM I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO CORRECT THE RECORDS THAT THERE WERE ZERO POINTS >> OBJECTION. I WANT TO YIELD MYSELF 30 SECONDS >> GENTLEMAN RECOGNIZED FOR >> WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE GENERAL THE PRESIDENT BEHAVIOR, NOT JUST PROCESS. BUT I WANT TO SAY THAT I’M PROUD OF THE PROCESS. DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS HAVE HAD EQUAL OPPORTUNITY , MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES HAVE BEEN INVOLVED AT EVERY STAGE OF THIS PROCESS. TO QUESTIONING THIS IS AN OPEN HEARING, THE COMMITTEE SAID MORE THAN 100 HOURS FROM 17 WITNESSES, AND HELD SEVEN PUBLIC HEARINGS WHICH INCLUDED WITNESSES, THEY PRODUCED THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, EVALUATING THE IMPEACHMENT I YIELD MYSELF AN ADDITIONAL 15 SECONDS >> RECOGNIZE >> PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE EVIDENCE PRESENTED AGAINST HIM HE CHOSE NOT TO PROVIDE ANY EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE BUT INSTEAD HAS BLOCKED NUMEROUS WITNESSES. AT THIS POINT, MADAME SPEAKER, I WOULD LIKE TO YIELD THREE MINUTES TO THE DOME AND FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. FOR TWO AND RECOGNIZE FOR THREE MINUTES >> THINK YOU GENTLEMAN FOR YIELDING ME THE TIME. MADAME SPEAKER, I RISE TODAY AS A MEMBER OF THE BODY. REFLECTING UPON OUR OATH OF OFFICE TO SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AGAINST OUR ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT BRING HERE TODAY, THERE IS ONLY ONE PATH FOR US TO TAKE TO FULFILL THAT OATH IN THE FIRST OF A SERIES OF PAMPHLETS AND TITLED IT THE

AMERICAN CRISIS. PUBLISHED 243 YEARS AGO TOMORROW IN TONE THESE ARE THE TIMES THAT SHOW THE SUNSHINE PATRIOTS WILL END THIS CRISIS SLING FROM THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY. BUT HE UNDERSTANDS IT BUY IT NOW DESERVES THE LOVE AND THANKS OF MAN AND WOMEN IT IS NOT EASILY CONQUERED THESE WORDS WERE WRITTEN AT A TIME WHEN OUR FOUNDERS WERE REBELLING AGAINST THE RULE OF THE BRITISH — TODAY, WE HAVE THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO BELIEVE HE IS A KING, OR ABOVE THE LAW HE WARNED US THAT SO UNLIMITED THE POWER CAN BELONG ONLY TO GOD ALMIGHTY. MY FAITH LEADS ME TO TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY THE FOLLOWING WORDS OF OUR OATH TO FAITHFULLY DISCHARGE THE DUTIES OF THE OFFICE SO HELP ME GOD MADAME SPEAKER, THREE DAYS AGO, I JOINED WITH A BIPARTISAN DELEGATION CELEBRATING THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE. AT THE MEMORIALS OF GEORGE PATTON AND ANTHONY McCULLOUGH. WE HAVE VISITED THOSE THAT WERE OCCUPIED BY SOME BRAVE SOLDIERS WHO FOUGHT IN SOME OF THE WORST WINTER WEATHER EVER VISITED UPON THE BATTLEFIELD. AND THEY VISITED THE LUXEMBOURG AMERICAN CEMETERY, THE FINAL RESTING PLACE OF THOUSANDS OF THEM AND GENERAL GEORGE PATTON. THEY WERE IN THE EFFORTS 75 YEARS AGO TO OBSERVE THE REPUBLIC THAT WE MUST NOT BE SUNSHINE HERE TODAY IN OUR EFFORTS TO PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION UPON WHICH THIS GREAT REPUBLIC STANDS. OUR FIGHT IS NOT IN THE TRENCHES OF BATTLEFIELDS, BUT IN THE HOLD OF THE CONGRESS OUR DUTY IS NO LESS PATRIOTIC AND I YIELD BACK >> CINNAMON YIELDS BACK GENTLEMAN FROM OKLAHOMA >> THINK YOU MADAME SPEAKER. I YIELD MYSELF 15 SECONDS JUST TO RESPOND TO MY FRIEND. PRESIDENT TRUMP, FOR THE RECORD, WAS NOT PROVIDED THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHALLENGE THE FACT AND STILL HAS NOT RECEIVED THE MATERIALS REQUIRED BY H READ 660. ANOTHER EXAMPLE AS TO WHY THIS ISN’T A FAIR PROCESS. WITHOUT MADAME SPEAKER, I WOULD LIKE TO YIELD TO THE LADY FROM WYOMING FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE UNANIMOUS CONSENT REQUEST >> MADAME SPEAKER. I ASK UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO 767 TO PROVIDE FOR VOTING TO A MANUAL CALL OF THE ROLE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN SEE PRECISELY WHO IS SUPPORTING THE IMPEACHMENT OF A DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT. MEMBERS SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO STAND AND IDENTIFY THEMSELVES OPENLY AND ON CAMERA, ON THE QUESTION OF ADOPTION OF THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT >> OUR TIME HAS BEEN YIELDED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEBATE BY THE GENTLEMAN FROM MASSACHUSETTS DOES THE GENTLEMAN FROM MASSACHUSETTS YIELD FOR THIS UNANIMOUS CONSENT REQUEST? >> I DO NOT >> TILLMAN FROM MASSACHUSETTS DOES NOT YIELD. THEREFORE UNANIMOUS CONSENT CANNOT BE ENTERTAINED. GENTLEMAN FROM OKLAHOMA >> THANK YOU MADAME SPEAKER. I YIELD TO THE GOOD FRIEND, THE GENTLEMAN FROM MISSOURI MADAME SPEAKER, I ASKED FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO AMEND HR 767 TO PROVIDE FOR 12 HOURS OF DEBATE EQUALLY DIVIDED BY THE MAJORITY AND MINORITY, WHICH WOULD ALLOW EACH MEMBER OF THE HOUSE AT LEAST ONE MINUTE 40 SECONDS OF DEBATE CLEAR >>> THIS IS A MAJOR STEP IN THIS PROCESS, THIS IS A HISTORIC DAY

BUT THERE IS A LOT OF FOCUS ON WHAT COMES NEXT IN THE SENATE

WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE SUGGESTION OF THIS MOMENT AND

ALSO LOOK AHEAD. THERE IS A LOT THAT IS ANTICIPATED AND EXPECTED

ABOUT THE OUTCOME TODAY BUT WE ALSO ANTICIPATE AN OUTCOME IN

THE SENATE TRIAL BECAUSE REPUBLICANS ARE NOT GIVING US A

SENSE THAT THEY WILL IMPEACH HIM IN THE SENATE

>> I THINK THAT THE POLITICAL DRAMA WILL BE HIGHER IN THE

SENATE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A GROUP OF MORE MODERATE REPUBLICAN

SENATORS WHO HAVE IN CERTAIN STANCES SHOWN THAT THEY WILL

TALK A STEP AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENT. WE DO NOT HAVE

EVIDENCE THAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO THAT IN THIS CASE BUT THEY

ARE AN INTERESTING GROUP TO WATCH. I AM THINKING ABOUT MITT

ROMNEY, THE FORMER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, NOW A SENATOR FROM UTAH. THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE AT TIMES DISTANCED THEMSELVES FROM PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND CRITICIZED HIM, MITT ROMNEY IN PARTICULAR, SEEING HOW THEY RESPOND TO NOT ONLY THE FACTS OF THE CASE BUT HOW THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP RUNS THE TRIAL. FOR VIEWS TURNING IN FOR THE FIRST TIME, IF THE HOUSE VOTES TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AS WE EXPECT IT WILL, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WILL BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. THAT WILL COME IN THE SENATE IMPEACHES HIM >> VERY INTERESTING, IF YOU ARE NOT SOMEONE WHO WATCHES THE HOUSE FLOOR REGULARLY, IT IS SUCH A TESTAMENT TO DEMOCRACY IN ACTION AND THE DECORUM THAT CONGRESS CAN ENGAGE IN. WE HAVE TIME ON THE REPUBLICAN AND THEN THE DEMOCRAT SIDE OF THE AISLE THEN YOU HEARD THE TWO TOP MEMBERS OF THE RULES COMMITTEE PRAISING EACH OTHER AND HAVING KIND WORDS FOR EACH OTHER IN TOM COLE AND JIM MCGOVERNOR, EVEN AS THEY WERE PUSHING BACK AT THE ARGUMENTS THAT EACH WAS MAKING >> CONGRESS IS MORE LIKE THAT THAN WHAT WE SAW IN THE JUDICIARY AND INTELLIGENCE CHEA HEARINGS WHERE YOU HAD FIRE WORKS TYPE CHARACTERS GOING OUT TO DEFEND THE PRESIDENT BUT NORMALLY CONGRESS IS LIKE, WE DISAGREE BUT I AM GOING TO DO LITTLE THINGS LIKE CALL YOU MY GOOD FRIEND OR YIELD MY TIME OR ALLOWING REPUBLICANS TO SPEAK EVEN THOUGH DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE PROCESS. EVEN THOUGH IT’S COLLEGIAL AND WE ARE SEEING HOW DEMOCRACY WORKS WE ARE ALSO SEEING HOW DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE HOW SO THEREFORE THEY CONTROL THE PROCESS, AT THE BEGINNING OF THE DEBATE REPUBLICANS TRIED TO THROW OUT EVERYTHING BY SAYING THAT WE THINK THAT DEMOCRATS ABUSED THEIR POWER BY WHOLING THESE HEARINGS OR SUBPOENAING PEOPLE OR NOT LETTING US HOLD THE HEARINGS BUT THE REALITY IS THAT ITS TOO BAD, DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE PROCESS BECAUSE THEY CONTROL THE MAJORITY OF THE HOUSE >> LETS GO LIVE ON CAPITOL HILL TO RHO THRKS DA TALKING TO MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE AND SENATE >> I AM HERE WITH SENATOR HIRONO FROM HAWAII, SHE’S A MEMBER OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, CAN YOU GIVE US AN UPDATE AS A JUDICIARY MEMBER, OF WHAT WE MIGHT SEE COME JANUARY >> IT’S NOT JUST THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE THAT WILL SIT IN JUDGMENT. WHEN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT COMES TO THE SENATE WE ARE WAITING FOR THE PRESIDENT TO MOUNT A DEFENSE, HE HAS NOT PRODUCED A SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE, HE HAS NOT REBUTTED ANY OF THE FACT WITNESSES WHO SAID HE USED TAXPAYER MONEY AS A BRIBE, HE HAS NOT MOUNTED A DEFENSE TO THAT, AS A SENATOR IN THE TRIAL I AM LOOKING FOR A DEFENSE, FOR HIM TO CALL THE PROCEEDING A WITCH HUNT IS A RHETORICAL NOTHING BURGER >> WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE WITNESSES COMING TO A SENATE TRIAL. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT? >> WE HAVE ASKED FOR WITNESSES AND THE DOCUMENTS THAT RELATE TO

THE DECISION TO HOLD BACK THE $400 MILLION IN NECESSARY AID TO UKRAINE, THERE HAVE TO BE DOCUMENTS AND E-MAILS BUT NOT A SINGLE DOCUMENT HAS BEEN PROUD AND THERE ARE WITNESSES WHO WERE RIGHT THERE WHO COULD PROVIDE POSSIBLY A DEFENSE FOR THE PRESIDENT BUT APPARENTLY THEY ARE NOT COMING EITHER. IF HIS DEFENSE IS, THE PRESIDENT SAYS I CAN SHOOT SOMEBODY ON FIFTH AVENUE AND NOTHING COULD HAPPEN, HE THINKS THAT HE IS ABOVE THE LAW, MAYBE HIS DEFENSE IS, YES I DID IT, SO WHAT, THAT’S WHAT MICK MULVANEY SAID ALREADY, IT’S NOT OKAY FOR THE PRESIDENT TO DO WHAT HE DID >> THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE INVESTIGATION, THE PUBLIC HEARINGS, WHAT MOMENTS STOOD OUT TO YOU THIS THOSE PROCEEDINGS >> SOME OF THE WITNESSES SUCH AS AMBASSADOR TAYLOR AND FEE HILLARY FIONA HILL. THEY WERE VERY BRAVE BECAUSE THE ADMINISTRATION DID NOT WANT ANYBODY TO TESTIFY. IT WAS ELECTRIC FOR VINDMAN TO COME FORWARD AND SAY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. THESE ARE FACT WITNESSES, THEY WERE NOT THERE TO DRAW THE LEGAL CONCLUSION TO SAY WHAT HE DID WAS IMPEACHABLE IT’S FOR THE HOUSE TO CAN THAT, THE REPUBLICANS ARE STILL FOCUSED ON PROCESS AND THEY CANNOT ADDRESS THE FACT OF THE PRESIDENT’S SHAKE TOWN >> THANK YOU FOR WALKING OVER TO THE HOUSE SIDE. HAPPY HOLIDAYS >> HAPPY HOLIDAYS IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THIS. EARLIER TODAY YOU TALKED TO MARK MEADOWS, A CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN FROM NORTH CAROLINA >> YOU CANNOT ALL OF A SUDDEN SAY THAT THE PHONE CALL IS THE BIGGEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED. THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A CRIME TO IMPEACH BUT THEY ARE IMPEACHMENT DOES NOT REFER TO NEW CRIMES, I BELIEVE THE FIRST IMPEACHMENT WE HAVE HAD WHERE THERE IS NOT AN UNDERLYING CRIME ASSOCIATED WITH IT >> DID YOU READ THE PRESIDENT’S LETTER? >> IT EXPRESSES THE FRUSTRATION THAT HE HAS, MORE IMPORTANTLY IT EXPRESSES THE FRUSTRATION OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. CONGRESS HAS THE APPROVAL RATING OF A COCKROACH AND MOST INCLUDING MYSELF SAY WE DESERVE IT. THEY DO NOT WANT THIS, THIS IS JUST THEATER AND HOPEFULLY THE FINAL CHAPTER IN THE HOUSE HAPPENS TODAY >> THAFTS CONGRESSMAN MARK MEADOWS, GREAT QUESTIONS FOR HIM. I WAS FASCINATED TO HEAR HIS RESPONSE TO HER ABOUT THIS LETTER THAT THE PRESIDENT WROTE BECAUSE I THINK THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING TO KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF IT. IT WAS IN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S VOICE BUT IT WAS VERY INFLAM INFLAMATORY, IT IS ON THE OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE LETTER HEAD, IT IS AN OFFICIAL LOOKING DOCUMENT BUT IT IS LANGUAGE THAT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IS NOT USED TO SEEING COMING OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE DIRECTLY, IT’S NOT THE INFORMAL TWITTER, HE IS KNOCKING SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI, HE COMPARES WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH TO THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS, REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO DEFEND HIM ON THE MERITS OF THIS LETTER >> I AM GOING TO READ A QUOTE FROM PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S PRESS SECRETARY WHO APPEARED ON FOX NEWS, SHE SAID IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR HIM TO PUT IT DOWN IN WRITING SO IT WOULD IT WOULD BE SAVED FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS, TODAY IS A SAD DAY FOR THIS COUNTRY, THAT’S THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY. IT’S CLEAR FROM PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S STAFF THAT HE FELT HE WAS WRITING FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS, WE KNOW WHEN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SENDS A LETTER LIKE THIS HE TENDS TO DICTATE IT OR WRITES IT LONG FORM AND IT DOES NOT GO THROUGH EXTENSIV EDITING OR LEGAL PROCESSES. THIS IS HIS PRIMAL REACTION TO THE IMPEACHMENT HEARING >> PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP OPERATES IN HYPERBOLE AND THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THAT. MANY OF THE CLAIMS ARE MISLEADING OR INACCURATE INCLUDING IN THIS LETTER. HOW DO THEY DEFEND THE PRESIDENT WHILE TRAFFICKING IN THAT BUT NOT BEING THAT

HYPERBOLIC, I DO NOT THINK THAT THEY HAVE OR WILL FIND THE RIGHT WAY TO DO THAT >> CAN YOU LET US KNOW HOW IT THE PUBLIC WEIGHING IN ON THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP >> WE ASKED ABOUT SEVERAL OF THE ACCUSATIONS ACTION ONE WAS WHETHER OR NOT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS BY TRYING TO I WANT FEAR WITH THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS, 49% OF AMERICANS SAID HE DID, 43% SAID HE DID NOT. THIS WAS ONE OF THE ONES THAT BROKE DOWN BY PARTY LINES, 85% OF REPUBLICANS SAID HE DID NOT, 80 TO PERCENT OF DEMOCRATS SAID HE DID, WE ASKED ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IMPROPERLIY REQUESTED UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN AND HIS FAMILY, IT AGAIN BROKE DOWN ON PARTY LINES, 80% OF DEMOCRATS SAID HE DID, 78% OF REPUBLICANS SAID HE DID NOT >> IF YOU LOOK AT THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE PHONE CALL, TRUMP ASKED THE UKRAINE PRESIDENT TO INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN. WE HAVE AN EXAMPLE OF TRUMP DOING WHAT 35 35% OF THE COUNTRY SAYING HE DID NOT DO, IT’S PART OF THE GAME PLAN, SPEAK LOUDER, IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING TO SOME DEGREE >> WE HEARD A REPUBLICAN LINGER AT THE MICROPHONES AS THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE SPOKE OUT AGAINST ADVANCING THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. REPORTERS WERE ASKING TOUGH QUESTIONS, LIKE THE PROPRIETY OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ASKING THE UKRAINIAN LEADER TO INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN AND THE CONGRESSWOMAN WAS ACTING LIKE IT DID NOT HAPPEN. THAT’S JUST NOT TRUE, REPUBLICANS MAY THINK ITS NOT WORTHY OF IMPEACHMENT BUT THERE SEEMS TO BE A CHOICE BY SOME REPUBLICANS TO GO UP TO THE MICROPHONES AND SPEAK COUNTER TO THE FACTS IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP >> THEY ARE TRYING TO JUSTIFY THEMSELVES BASED ON SUBTLE SEMANTIC ARGUMENTS, THEY SAY HE MAY HAVE ASKED THEM TO INVESTIGATE THE BEUDENS BUT HE DID NOT PRESSURE HIM. WE KNOW THAT THERE WAS PRESSURE ON PRESIDENT ZELENSKY BUT THEY ARE SAYING, WAS HE ASKING FOR THE INVESTIGATION BECAUSE THEY ARE A POLITICAL RIVAL OF HIS, CLEARLY JOE BIDEN IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020, HE COULD BE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE AND TAKE THE FIGHT TO PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IN THAT WAY BUT REPUBLICANS WITH ARGUE THIS WAS INCIDENTAL. REPUBLICANS SAY THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT TRUMP WAS ASKING PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO INVESTIGATE THE BIDENS BECAUSE TRUMP HAD A VALID CONCERN ABOUT THE BIDENS FAMILY IN UKRAINE WHICH HAS NOT BEEN CORROBORATED REPUBLICANS ARE ABLE TO FEUPPED CORNERS OF FACTS AND BUILD A WALL AROUND THEMSELVES SAYING IT WAS NOT ABOUT THE BIDENS BEING A POLITICAL RIFLE AND DEMOCRATS HAVE SEEN THIS WRONG >> WHAT IS THE GENERAL PUBLIC OPINION ON PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. YOU TRACK HIS APPROVAL RATINGS >> IT STAYS STATIC OVER TIME. WE DID NOT ASK IN THIS LAST POLL BUT WE ASKED IN OTHER POLLS, HIS APPROVAL RATING DOES NOT CHANGE MUCH. JUST LIKE OPINIONS ON IMPEACHMENT, OPINIONS ON THE PRESIDENT ARE BAKED IN. WE SEE STRONG LIKES AND DISLIKES WITH FEWER IN BETWEEN, I LOOKED YESTERDAY FOR A COLLEAGUE AND WE WANTED TO SEE HOW REPUBLICANS FELT AND MOST REPUBLICAN LEANERS ARE STRONGLY ACING OF THE PRESIDENT WHILE MOST DEMOCRATS ARE STRONGLY DISAPPROVING AND WE DO NOT SEE MUCH MOVEMENT IN PARTIES OR OVERALL >> SO MUCH FOCUS ON SWING STATES AND STATES THAT ARE IMPORTANT ON THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE MAP. CAN YOU GIVE US INSIGHTS ON HOW PEOPLE ARE WEIGHING IN ON THIS >> WE LOOKED AT A FEW THAT ARE GOING TO BE IMPORTANT, THAT WE ASSUME WILL BE IMPORTANT NEXT YEAR AND WE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF SIMILAR OPINIONS, WE HAVE NOT DONE A BATTLE GROUND POLL IN THE POST BUT WE ARE MONITORING WHAT

IS HAPPENING ON OTHERS, OUR NATIONAL POLLS ARE RANDOM SAMPLES THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES AND WE MATCH THAT TO THE ADULT POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES, THERE IS AN EQUAL NUMBER OF REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS AND WE KEEP TRACK IN ALL OF OUR POLL DOCUMENTATION ON WHAT SHARE IS FROM CERTAIN PARTIES AND WE WEIGHT THE POLLS TO BE REFLECTIVE OF THE POP LAKES BY AGE, REGION AND GENDER SO OUR POLLS CAN BE REFLECTIVE. I THINK THAT POLLING SOUNDS LIKE PIE IN THE SKY IDEALS IN HOW WE GET THERE BUT THERE IS A LOT OF SCIENCE THAT GOES INTO IT TO INSURE THAT PEOPLE ARE UNDERSTANDING WHAT WE ARE SAYING >> THANK YOU. I WANT TO PLAY A LITTLE BIT OF SOUND FROM JIM MCGOVERN, HE STARTED ON THIS VERY SERIOUS NOTE >> I HAVE READ THE DETAILS OF THE JULY 25TH PHONE CALL WITH PRESIDENT ZELENSKY WHERE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAID I WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO US A FAVOR THOUGH, I HAVE SEEN THE PRESS CONFERENCE WHERE HIS CHIEF OF STAFF ADMITTED TO THIS DEAL AND TOLD THE NATION TO JUST GET OVER IT. HOURS OF DEPOSITIONS BY THE INTELLIGENCE, OVERSIGHT AND FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEES WHERE WITNESSES OUTLINED THE PRESIDENT’S DIRECT INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCHEME. THE EVIDENCE IS CLEAR AND OVERWHELMING, IF A PRESIDENT UNDERMINING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY IS NOT IMPEACHABLE CONDUCT THAN MADAM SPEAKER, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS I HAVE HEARD SOME ON THE OTHER SIDE SUGGEST THAT THIS RO SES IS ABOUT OVERTURNING AN ELECTION, THAT IS ABSURD, THIS IS ABOUT PROTECT OUR DEMOCRACY >> THAT WAS HOW THIS DEBATE BEGAN TODAY. LETS TALK ABOUT PROCEDURE IN CASE PEOPLE ARE TUNING IN AND WONDERING WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW. THE LATEST VOTE HAS ENDED BUT IT’S BEEN HELD OPEN. THERE WAS A LOT OF NO VOTES THAT HAVE SINCE COME IN, THIS MAY WRAP UP SHORTLY BUT TAKE US THROUGH WHERE WE ARE IN THE PROCESS >> THE HOUSE HAS JUST CONCLUDED A DEBATE ON THE RULES FOR DEBATE ON THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT THIS IS THE STEP THAT THEY HAVE TO TAKE IN ORDER TO LAY THE GROUND WORK FOR TODAY’S REAL SUBSTANTIVE DEBATE >>> THE PREVIOUS QUESTION IS ORDERED. THE QUESTION IS ON ADOPTION OF THE RESOLUTION, ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE >> AYE >> OPPOSED, NO >> IN THE OPINION OF THE CHAIR, THE NOs HAVE IT >> MADAM SPEAKER >> GENTLEMEN REQUESTS A RECORDED VOTE. THOSE FAVORING A RECORDED VOTE WILL RISE, A SUFFICIENT NUMBER HAVE BEEN RISEN, A RECORDED VOTE IS ORDERED MEMBERS RECORD THEIR VOTE WITH ELECTRONIC DEVICES, THIS WILL BE A FIVE MINUTE VOTE >> THAT WAS A DEMOCRAT FROM COLORADO PICKED TO LEAD THIS PROCESS TODAY. YOU WILL BE HEARING HER USE THAT GAVEL A LOT THROUGHOUT THE DAY. SO YOU SEE FIVE MORE MINUTES HERE ON THIS CLOCK >> THEY HAVE BEEN COMPRESSING THE TIME FRAME OF THE VOTES, IF THEY FEEL THAT THEY ARE BEHIND IN THE SCHEDULE THEY ARE TRYING TO CATCH UP. THIS VOTE IS ABOUT APPROVING THE TERMS OF DEBATE BEFORE WE GET INTO THE DEBATE OVER ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT YOU SAW AN HOUR OF DISCUSSION WITH REPUBLICANS AND DEPTHS TRADING TIME, LOTS OF ONE MINUTE SPEECHES WHICH ALLOW BOTH PARTIES TO HIGHLIGHT CERTAIN MEMBERS WHO THEY WANT TO GIVE PUBLIC ATTENTION TO. PEOPLE CAN WATCH AND SPEND A MINUTE SPEAKING TO THEIR SUBSEQUENTS, PEOPLE WHO THEY WANT TO SEND A MESSAGE TO, WE WILL SEE MORE OF THAT LATER, FOUR MINUTES LEFT ON THE CLOCK FOR THIS VOTE >> LATER TODAY WE WILL SEE SIX HOURS OF DEBATE ON THE TWO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BUT THAT HAS NOT STARTED YET. WE ARE GOING BACK TO CAPITOL HILL. WE SAW RHONDA TALKING TO SENATOR HIRONO, WHAT ARE YOU HEARING FROM MEMBERS AS YOU ARE ABLE TO TALK WITH THEM ON THIS HISTORIC DAY >> WE HAD A LOT OF MEMBERS WHO ARE COMING AND MILK ABOUT AND REPORTERS ARE TRYING TO GETTANCES ON WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT TODAY. WE HEAD MY

INTERVIEW WITH MARK MEADOWS FROM NORTH CAROLINA, HE TALKED ABOUT THAT LETTER AND WHAT HE IS HEARING FROM CONSTITUENTS. I ALSO JOINED A GROUP OF REPORTERS SPEAKING STO REPRESENTATIVE OCASIO CORTES, SHE SAID I HAVE RESPECT FOR THOSE WHO ARE VOTING YES EVEN THOUGH THEY MIGHT GET SOME BACKLASH FROM CONSTITUENTS. I AM HEARING THE WORD COURAGE A LOT. I HEARD THAT FROM REPUBLICANS WHO SAID A LOT OF THEIR MEMBERS ARE BEING COURAGEOUS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE GETTING THEIR POINTS ACROSS. I HEARD COURAGE FROM DEMOCRATS SAYING THAT THEY ARE HAPPY THAT THEIR COLLEAGUES THE DISTRICTS THAT ARE RECEIVING BACKLASH, THEY ARE GOING AHEAD WITH THE VOTE AND I JUST HEARD FROM SENATOR HIRONO AND I CONNECTED WITH A PRESS AID FROM SENATOR SCHUMMER’S OFFICE, HE PLANS TO STAY QUIET TODAY BUT HE IS WATCHING THE PROCEEDINGS CLOSELY, WE CAN ASSUME IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS THAT WE WILL HEAR SOMETHING FROM THE MINORITY IN THE SENATE. ANOTHER LONGE DAY, I SEND IT BACK TO YOU >> WE ARE JOINED IN THE STUDIO BY ASHLEY PARKER, OUR WHITE HOUSE REPORTER, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S LETTER YESTERDAY GOT A LOT OF ATTENTION AND THERE HAS BEEN SOME CRITICISM OF THE LETTER BUT THERE IS BEEN SOME CRITICISM THAT HE WAS ABLE TO COMMAND THE NEWS CYCLE IN THE WAY SO EVEN AS CRITICS OF THE PRESIDENT WERE CRITICAL OF THE LANGUAGE HE USED BUT THAT DISTRACTED FROM THE PROTESTS WAS THAT SUCCESSFUL >> I SPOKE TO A WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL WHO SAID IT WAS ON THE FRONT PAGE OF EVERY NEWSPAPER LEADING ALL OF THE CABLE NEWS AND BROADCASTS AND WE ALWAYS THINK IT’S EFFECTIVE WHEN THE PRESIDENT’S VOICE IS OUT THERE I SAID WHAT ABOUT THE TONE, THERE HAS BEEN CRITICISM ABOUT THE TONE, THE PERSON SAID THE TONE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN THE TONE THE PRESIDENT HAS MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT ALL OF THE IMPEACHMENT, BUT THE DIFFERENCE WAS IT WAS ON WHITE HOUSE LETTER HEAD. THAT’S NOT THE ONLY VIEW IN THE WHITE HOUSE, I DO NOT WANT TO IMPLY THAT THIS WAS A GRAND STRATEGY TO TAKE OVER THE NEWS CYCLE BUT THERE IS SOME VIEW THAT IT WAS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD, IT WAS THE PRESIDENT’S VOICE DOMINATING WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BAD NEWS CYCLE FOR HIM >> THAT’S HIS STRATEGY, SPEAK LOUDER AND HE WINS >> WHEN YOU SAY STRATEGY I THINK IT IMPLIES MORE ORGANIZATION THAN WENT INTO THIS. THEY SAID WHAT IF WE DRAFT A LETTER AND GET A LOT OF NEWS, THAT WAS NOT THAT BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS A GUT INSTINCT TO SPEAKING LOUDER AND COMMANDING THE NEWS CYCLE AND BEING SHAMELESS AND DRIVING THROUGH AND THEREFORE IN HIS PARLANCE, WINNING >> LETS TALK ABOUT HOW THE PRESIDENT AND THE WHIES HOUSE IS DOING, THE PRESIDENT IS ABOUT TO BECOME ONLY THE THIRD PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY TO BE IMPEACHED BY THE HOUSE, HOW ARE THEY DOING >> AGAIN THIS IS A BIT OF WHAT I WROTE TODAY. THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT WANT TO BE IMPEACHED. EVERY PERSON THAT I SPOKE TO WILL SAY, PUBLICLY AND PRIVATELY HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE IMPEACHED. EVEN IF HE SEES POLITICAL UPSIDE HE WOULD BE WILLING TO FORSAKE THAT VALUE TO NOT HAVE THIS ON HIS LEGACY, IMPEACHMENT UNDERMINES HIM. HE VIEWS IT AS THE NEXT ITERATION AS DEPTHS OF THE UNG FAIR BUT IMPEACHMENT IS BAD AND HE DOES NOT WANT IT BUT THERE IS A POLITICAL UPSIDE. HE THINKS THAT THE POLLING IN THE BATTLEGROUND STATES FOR HIM IS BETTER THAN IT IS NATIONALLY, HE WAS IN THE OVAL OFFICE WHEN HE SAID, THERE WAS A SILVER LINING, WE

GOT USMCA DONE BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS WANTED TO SHOW THAT THEY WERE NOT POLITICAL THERE WERE SOME BRIGHT SPOTS. I WANT TO QUHEK IN WITH THE HOUSE FLOOR AND SEE WHAT IS GOING ON THE TIME IS OVER FOR THIS QUICK VOTE. WE WILL GO BACK TO THE HOUSE FLOOR WHEN THEY PICK THINGS BACK UP AGAIN >> JUST FINISHING, I AM INCLINED TO BELIEVE SOME OF THIS. IN THIS CASE I AM INCLINED TO BELIEVE THE STORIES FROM WITHIN WHERE THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN HE IS THIS GOOD SPIRITS BUT THE FLIP SIDE, SOMEONE WHO IS FULL OF CHIMS CAL HOLIDAY CHEER DOES NOT PEN THAT LETTER >> THE YAY’S ARE 197, THE RESOLUTION IS ADOPTED AND WITHOUT OBJECTION, THE MOTION TO RECONSIDER IS LAID ON THE TABLE HOUSE WILL BE IN ORDER >>> MEMBERS WILL TAKE THEIR CONVERSATIONS OFF THE FLOOR >>> PUTTING THIS INTO HISTORICAL CONTEXT. HOW DO YOU THINK THAT REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE INTERPRETING IT AND EITHER USING IT AND BOUNCING OFF IT OR THINKING ABOUT IT? >> I WAS AMAZED TO SEE HOW CANDID NANCY PELOSI AND ADAM SCHIFF WERE YESTERDAY >>> THE HOUSE WILL GO TO IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION OF THE RESOLUTION >> HOUSE CALENDAR NUMBER 61 HOUSE RESOLUTION 755 RESOLVED THAT DONALD JOHN TRUMP PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS IMPEACHED FOR HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS AND THE ARTICLES WILL GO TO THE UNITED STATES SENATE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT IN THE NAME OF ITSELF AND THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AGAINST DONALD JOHN TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT OF HIS IMPEACHMENT, ARTICLE ONE, ABUSE OF POWER, THE CONSTITUTION PROVIDES THAT THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SHALL HAVE THE SOLE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT AND THAT THE PRESIDENTIAL BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ON IMPEACHMENT FOR AND CONVICTION OF TREASON, BRIBERY AND OTHER HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS IN HIS CONDUCT OF THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND IN VIALS OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL OATH TO EXECUTE THE OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES AND TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY, PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND IN VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO TAKE CARE THAT THE LAWS BE FULLY EXECUTIVED, DONALD TRUMP HAS ABUSED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY IN THAT USING HIS OFFICE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SOLICITED THE INTERFERENCE IN A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, THAT INCLUDED SOLICITING THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE TO PUBLICLY ANNOUNCE INVESTIGATIONS THAT WOULD BENEFIT HIS REELECTION AND INFLUENCE THE 2020 UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TO HIS ADVANTAGE, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ALSO SOUGHT TO PRESSURE THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE TO TALK THESE STEPS BY CONDITIONING OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES ACTS OF SIGNIFICANT VALUE TO UKRAINE ON THE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE INVESTIGATIONS. THE PRESIDENT ENGAGED FOR KRUCT CONDUCT, IN SO DOING HE USED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY IN A MANNER THAT COMPROMISES THE SECURITY OF THE UNITED STATES, AND UNDERMINED THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS AND HE THUS IGNORED THE INTERESTS OF

THE NATION, HE ENGAGED THROUGH THE FOLLOWINGS MEANS, ONE, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ACTING DIRECTLY AND THROUGH HIS AGENTS WITHIN AND OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT CORRUPTLY SOLICITED THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE TO PUBLICLY ANNOUNCE INVESTIGATIONS INTO A POLITICAL OPPONENT, FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN AND A DISCREDITED THEORY PROMOTED BY RUSSIA ALLEGING THAT UKRAINE RATHER THAN RUSSIA INTERFERED IN THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ACTING DIRECTLY AND THROUGH HIS AGENTS CONDITIONED TO OFFICIAL ACTS ON THE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT THAT HE HAD REQUESTED THE RELEASE OF $391 MILLION OF UNITED STATES TAXPAYER FUNDS THAT CONGRESS HAD APPROPRIATED ON A BIPARTISAN BASIS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING VITAL MILITARY AND SECURITY ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE TO OPPOSE RUSSIAN AGGRESSION AND A HEAD OF STATE MEETING AT THE WHITE HOUSE WHICH THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE SOUGHT TO DEMONSTRATE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE IN THE FACE OF RUSSIAN AGGRESSION, FACED WITH THE PUBLIC REVELATION OF HIS ACTIONS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ULTIMATELY RELEASED MILITARY AND SECURITY ASSISTANCE TO THE GOVERNMENT OF UKRAINE BUT HAS PERSISTED TO GET UKRAINE TO UPPED TAKE THE INVESTIGATION FOR HIS PERSONAL AND POLITICAL BENEFIT. ALL OF THIS, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ABUSED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY BY IGNORING AND INJURING NATIONAL SECURITY AND OUR VITAL NATIONAL INTERESTS TO OBTAIN AN IMPROPER POLITICAL AND PERSONAL BENEFIT AND HE HAS ENLISTED A FOREIGN POWER IN KRUCTING DEMOCRATIC ELECTIONS HE HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT HE REMAINS A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURE AND THE CONSTITUTION IF ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN OFFICE PRESIDENT TRUMP THRUS WARRANTS TRIAL AND REMOVAL FROM OFFICE AND DISQUALIFICATION TO HOLD ANY OFFICE OF HONOR TRUST OR PROFIT IN THE UNITED STATES. ARTICLE TWO, THE CONSTITUTION PROVIDES THAT THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SHALL HAVE THE SOLE POWER OF THE IMPEACH. AND THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL BE REMOVED FOR CONVICTION OF TREASON AND BRIBERY OR OTHER HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, IN HIS OFFICE IN VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL OATH, FAIFLFULLY TO EXECUTE THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITY PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND IN VIOLATION OF HIS CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO TAKE CARE THAT THE LAWS BE FAIFTFULLY EXECUTED PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS DIRECTED THE UNPRECEDENTED DEFIANCE OF SUBPOENAS ISSUED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PURSUANT TO IT’S POWER OF IMPEACHMENT. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS ABUSED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY IN A MANNER OFFENSIVE TO AND SUBVERSIVE OF THE CONSTITUTION IN THAT THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS ENGAGED IN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY FOCUSED ON THE INTERFERING IN THE 2020 UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DEM ELECTION, AS PART OF THE INQUIRY, THE COMMITTEES SERVED SUBPOENAS SEEKING DOCUMENTS AND TESTIMONY BEING VITAL TO THE INQUIRY FROM VARIOUS EXECUTIVE BRANCH AGENCIES AND OFFICES AND CURRENT AND FORMER OFFICIALS, WITHOUT LAWFUL CAUSE OR EXCUSE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP DIRECTED AGENCIES AND OFFICES AND OFFICIALS NOT TO COMPLY WITH THOSE SUBPOENAS, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP THUS USED THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY AGAINST THE LAWFUL SUBPOENAS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND ASSUMED TO HIMSELF FUNCTIONS AND JUDGMENTS NECESSARY TO THE EXERCISE OF THE SOLE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT VESTED BY THE CONSTITUTION IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ABUSED THE POWERS OF HIS HIGH OFFICE THROUGH THE FOLLOWING MEANS, ONE, DIRECT THE WHITE HOUSE TO DEFY A LAWFUL SUBPOENA BY WITH WHOLING THE PROWBS OF DO YOU MEANS SOUGHT BY THE COMMITTEES, TWO, DREBTING OTHER EXECUTIVE BRANCH AGENCIES AND OFFICES TO DEFY LAWFUL SUBPOENAS AND WITH HOLD THE PRODUCTION OF DO YOU DO YOU DOCUMENTS FROM THE COMMITTEES, THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE, THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY AND THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE REFUSED TO PRODUCE A SINGLE RECORD. THREE, DIRECTING OFFICIALS NOT TO COOPERATE WITH THE COMMITTEES IN RESPONSIBLE TO WHICH NINE OFFICIALS DEFIED SUBPOENAS FOR

TESTIMONY, MICK MULVANEY, ROBERT BLAIR, MICHAEL ELLIS, THESE ACTIONS WERE CONSISTENT WITH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S PREVIOUS EFFORTS TO UNDERMINE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATIONS INTO FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN UNITED STATES ELECTIONS. THROUGH THESE ACTIONS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SOUGHT TO BRING TO HIMSELF THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE THE PROPRIETY SCOPE AND NATURE OF AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY INTO HIS CONDUCT AS WELL AS THE UNILATERAL PREROGATIVE TO DENY INFORMATION TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. IN THE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLIC NO PRESIDENT HAS ORDERED THE COMPLETE DEFIANCE OF AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AND SOUGHT TO IMPEDE THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO INVESTIGATE HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, THIS ABUSE OF OFFICE SERVED TO COVER UP THE PRESIDENT’S OWN MISCONDUCT AND TO SEIZE AND CONTROL THE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT AND NULLIFY A SAFEGUARD INVESTED IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO THE GREAT PREJUDICE OF THE CAUSE OF LAW AND JUSTICE AND TO THE INJURY OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP BY SUCH CONDUCT HAS DEMONSTRATED THAT HE WILL REMAIN A THREAT TO THE CONSTITUTION IF ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN OFFICE AND HAS ACTED IN A MANNER GROSSLY INCOMPATIBLE WITH SELF-GOVERNANCE AND THE RULE OF LAW >>> PURSUANT TO HOUSE RESOLUTION 767, THE RESOLUTION IS ADOPTED THE RESOLUTION SHALL BE DEBATE BUILDING FOR SIX HOURS, EQUALLY DIVIDED AND CONTROLLED BY THE CHAIR AND RANKING MEMBER OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, THE GENTLEMEN FROM NEW YORK, MR. NADLER AND THE GENTLEMEN FROM GEORGIA >> MADAM SPEAKER, I ASK UNANIMOUS CONSENT THAT ALL LEGISLATORS WILL HAVE FIVE DAYS TO AMENDMENT THEIR REMARKS >> SO ORDERED >> MADAM SPEAKER I YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE >>> THANK YOU MADAM SPEAKER, I THANK THE GENTLEMEN FOR YIELDING, FOR HIS TREMENDOUS LEADERSHIP IN HELPING US TO HONOR THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND I EXTEND MY GRATITUDE TO CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF WHO WILL BE PRIDING PRIDING LATER IN THE DAY. MY COLLEAGUES, THIS MORNING AND EVERY MORNING WHEN WE COME TOGETHER MEMBERS RISE AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, EVERY DAY ACROSS AMERICA CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS AND MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND OFFICIALS AND THOSE CIVICALLY ENGAGED ALSO PLEDGE TO THE FLAG, LET US RECALL WHAT THAT PLEDGE SAYS, I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. THE REPUBLIC IS WHAT WE ARE HERE TO KEEP TODAY. WE GATHER TO EXERCISE ONE OF THE O MOST SOLEMN POWERS THAT THIS BODY CAN TAKE, THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, NO MEMBER REGARDLESS OF PARTY OR POLITICS COMES TO CONGRESS TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT BUT EVERY ONE OF US AS OUR FIRST ACT AS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS STOOD ON THIS HISTORIC HOUSE FLOOR BEFORE OUR BEAUTIFUL AMERICAN FLAG AND RAISED OUR HANDS AND SAID I SWEAR THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. SO HELP ME GOD. FOR 230 YEARS MEMBERS ARE SEAN THAT SACRED OATH WHICH MAKES US CUSTODIANS OF THE CONSTITUTION. WHEN OUR FOUNDERS DECLARED INDEPENDENCE AND ESTABLISHED A NEW NATION THEY CRAFTED A SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT UNLIKE ANY SEEN BEFORE, A REPUBLIC STARTING WITH THE SACRED WORDS WE THE PEOPLE FOR CENTURIES AMERICANS HAVE

FOUGHT AND DIED TO DEFEND DEMOCRACY FOR THE PEOPLE. BUT SADLY OUR FOUNDERS VISION IS UNDERTHREAT FROM ACTIONS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, THAT IS WHY TODAY AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE I SADLY OPEN THE DEBATE ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IF WE DO NOT ACT NOW WE WOULD BE AGAINST OUR DUTY. IT IS TRAGIC THAT THE PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS MAKE IMPEACHMENT NECESSARY, HE GAVE US NO CHOICE, WE ARE DISCUSSING THE ESTABLISHED FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION, IT IS A FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTIONS, THE BASIS OF OUR DEMOCRACY, HUNDREDS OF FORMER PROSECUTORS REGARDLESS OF PARTY HAVE STATED THAT THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES. THIS IS A NATIONAL CIVICS LESSON ALTHOUGH A SAD ONE, I SUBMIT THESE DOCUMENTS FOR THE RECORD AND FOR STUDENTS TO STUDY >> THANK YOU >> WHAT WE ARE DISCUSSING TO IS THE ESTABLISHED FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT VIETED THE CONSTITUTION, IT IS A MATTER OF FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS AN ONGOING THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND THE TESTIMONY OF DECORATED WAR HEROS AND DIPLOMATS AND THE PRESIDENT’S APPOINTEES HAVE IS TOLD US THAT THE PRESIDENT USED THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE TO OBTAIN A PERSONAL BENEFIT THAT WEAKENS AMERICAN SECURITY , THE PRESIDENT WEAKENS AMERICA, THIS ABUSE OF POWER ALSO JEP JEOPARDIZES THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTION, ALL AMERICANS AGREE THAT AMERICAN VOTERS SHOULD CHOOSE OUR REPRESENTATIVES, NOT A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT. IT IS AGAINST OUR DEMOCRACY FOR A PRESIDENT TO INVITE FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS AS GEORGE WASHINGTON WARNED, HISTORY AND EXPERIENCE PROVES THAT FOREIGN INFLUENCE IS ONE OF THE BOFT BANEFUL FOES OF REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT. THAT’S GEORGE WASHINGTON, SADLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE WITNESSED FURTHER WRONGS OF THE PRESIDENT WHICH NECESSITATE THE SECOND ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT, OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, HE LAUNCHED AN UNPRECEDENTED AND CATEGORICAL CAMPAIGN OF DEFIANCE AND OBSTRUCTION, WE HAVE NEVER SEEN A PRESIDENT DECLARE AND ACT AS IF HE IS ABOVE THE LAW, THE PRESIDENT GOES SO FAR AS TO SAY ARTICLE TWO SAYS I CAN DO WHAT EVER I WANT. NO, IT DOES NOT THAT RECKLESSNESS IS A PROFOUND VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR REPUBLIC WHICH ENDURES BECAUSE OF OUR SYSTEM OF SEPARATION OF POWER, THREE COEQUAL BRANCHES, EACH A CHECK ON THE OTHER, A REPUBLIC IF WE CAN KEEP IT. THE FOUNDERS FEAR OF A ROGUE OR CORRUPT PRESIDENT IS THE REASON THAT THEY ENSHRINED IMPEACHMENT IN THE CONSTITUTION, UNLESS THE CONSTITUTION HAS AN IMPEACHMENT CLAUSE, THE PRESIDENT CAN TAKE ANY MEANS TO GET HIMSELF REELECTED. ANOTHER FOUNDER GORGE MASON SAID THE PRESIDENT MIGHT REPEAT HIS GUILT AND RETURN TO POWER, WE IN CONGRESS, ARTICLE ONE, THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH MUST STAND UP AND MAKE CLEAR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND TO ALL PEOPLE THAT THIS BODY STILL STANDS BY THE PRINCIPLES ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION AND DEFENDED BY GENERATIONS OF AMERICANS. LAST WEEK, IN OBSERVANCE OF THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE MEMBERS TRAVELED TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE TO THE HEROS WHO SACRIFICED EVERYTHING TO SECURE VICTORY THE VETERANS OF THAT BATTLE WHO WERE THERE, IN THEIR 90s TOLD US HOW AFTER THE WAR WAS WON, THE

EUROPEANS ASKED WHY RISK FOR US, YOU DO NOT KNOW US, WE ARE NOT AMERICANS, OUR MEN WOULD SAY WE CAME HERE TO FIGHT FOR YOU, NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE AMERICANS BUT BECAUSE WE ARE AMERICANS. AS OUR BELOVED CHAIRMAN CUMMINGS SAID >> HE ALSO SAID ALMOST PROPHETICALLY WHEN WE ARE DANCING WITH THE ANGELS, THE QUESTION WILL BE, WHAT DID WE DO TO MAYING SURE WE KEPT OUR DEMOCRACY INTACT. HE HAS SINCE PASSED ON. NOW HE IS DANCING WITH THE ANGELS, I KNOW THAT HE AND ALL OF US HERE ARE VERY PROUD OF THE MORAL COURAGE OF MEMBERS WHO WANT TO HONOR THE VISION OF OUR FOUNDERS FOR THE REPUBLIC, THE SACRIFICE OF OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM TO DEFEND IT AND THE ASPIRATIONS OF OUR CHILDREN TO LIVE FREELY WITHIN IT, TODAY WE ARE HERE TO DEFEND DEMOCRACY FOR THE PEOPLE MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA, I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY TIME >> THE GENTLEMEN LADY YIELDS BACK THE GENTLE LADY YIELDS BACK GENTLEMEN. THE GENTLEMEN FROM GEORGIA >> THANK YOU MADAM SPEAKER, WE ARE HERE TODAY TO ENTER IN TO A DEBATE THAT SHOULD SURPRISE NO ONE, THIS HAS NOT BEEN A SURPRISE AND IT’S NOT EVEN SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD HAVE NOT THOUGHT ABOUT. FROM THE MOMENT THAT THE MAJORITY PARTY IN THIS HOUSE WON, THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WE OB WITH HERE TODAY IS ONLY A MATTER OF WHAT DATE THEY WOULD SCHEDULE IT. HOW IT BEGAN WAS ON SEPTEMBER 24. THE SPEAKER ANNOUNCED AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WITHOUT HEARING THE CALL TRANSCRIPT THAT WE ARE GOING TO HEAR ABOUT TODAY. IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT THIS BODY CAN DO, THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF CONSTITUTIONAL AND FOUNDERS THROWN AROUND BUT THE FOWNERS WERE CONCERNED ABOUT A PARTISAN IMPEACHMENT IN WHICH THE POLITICS OF THE MAJORITY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO REGARDLESS OF FACTS. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS IS NOT A SOLEMN OCCASION, WHEN YOU GO LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FOR THREE YEARS YOU OUGHT TO BE EXCITED WHEN YOU FOUND IT BUT THEY CANNOT. WHY DO YOU CALL THIS A SOLEMN OCCASION WHEN YOU DO WHAT YOU WANT. NOW I KNOW, THE REASON THAT THEY THEY WANTED TO IS THAT THE CLOCK IN THE CALENDAR ARE TERRIBLE MASTERS, THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYTHING EXCEPT GETTING THE TIME DONE AND THE CALENDAR FIXED THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT FACTS OR TIME AND ONE DAY THE CLOCK AND THE CALENDAR WILL HANG IN THIS BODY IN A DEMOCRATMENTAL WAY, HOW DO I KNOW THIS, BECAUSE ONE OF OUR MEMBERS SAID ON THE NIGHT SHE WAS SWORN IN, WE ARE GOING TO IMPEACH. ANOTHER SAID I AM CONCERNED IF WE DO NOT IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT, HE WILL GET ELECTED. THEY SAID WE CANNOT BEAT HIM IF WE DO NOT IMPEACH HIM. THERE IS A REASON BEHIND THE IMPEACHMENT REALLY AFTER WE JUST SAID THE PLEDGE WE GO BACK TO THE SPEAKERS OWN WORDS AND SAY IT’S DANGEROUS TO LEAVE IT TO THE VOTERS, WE ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE HAVE NO PROBLEM TALKING OUR CASE TO THE VOTERS, IT IS A MATTER FOR THE VOTERS NOT THE HOUSE, NOT IN THIS WAY, IT HAS TRAMPLED EVERYTHING THAT THE HOUSE BELIEVES IN. I WILL FIGHT THIS ON PROCESS WHICH HAS BEEN DEPLORABLE TO USE THE WORDS OF THE MAJORITY. THE CALENDAR SAYS WE DO IT QUICKLY, WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT RULES OR THE OPPORTUNITY FOR WITNESSES TO BE CALLED BECAUSE THE CHAIRMAN GETS

TO DETERMINE WHAT IS RELEVANT THAT’S GOOD. LET THE ACCUSER DETERMINE WHAT IS RELEVANT. THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA SEE THROUGH THIS, THEY UNDERSTAND DUE PROCESS AND UNDERSTAND WHEN IT IS BEING TRAMPLED IN THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE, IT IS A MATTER OF FACT. I WILL FIGHT THE FACTS ALL DAY LONG, WE FOUND A PRESIDENT WHO DID NOT DO AS BEING CHARGED. THEY HAD TO GO TO ABUSE OF POWER, THIS AMORPHOUS TERM. THE CALL ITSELF, THE TWO PARTIES SAY NO PRESSURE, NOTHING WAS DONE TO GET THE MONEY, IN FACT THEY DID NOT KNOW THAT THE MONEY WAS HELD BUT THERE IS SOMETHING THAT VOACH BOTHERS VERY MUCH BOTHERS ME ABOUT THE FACTS, THERE WERE FIVE MEETINGS WHERE THERE WAS NEVER A LINK MADE. THERE IS A WITNESS DEPENDED ON 600 TIMES OVER THE MAJORITY REPORT WHO SAID THAT WAS MY PRESUMPTION OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING, THIS IS AN IMPEACHMENT BASED ON PRESUMPTION AND WHAT SELLS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. TODAY IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF THINGS BUT WHAT IT IS NOT IS FAIR. WHAT IT IS NOT IS ABOUT THE TRUTH. WHAT IS TRUE TODAY AND I JUST HEARD IT IN THE ARTICLES WHERE IT SAID AND THE SPEAKER TALK ABOUT IT, THE PRESIDENT WEAKENED A FOREIGN LEADER. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS. THE MOST INTERESTING THING THAT I HAVE HEARD IS THE ACTUAL ATTACK BY THE MAJORITY ON PRESIDENT ZELENSKY BECAUSE THEY REALIZED THAT THE CRUX OF CASE IS THAT IF HE WAS NOT PRESSURED THEY FAIL SO WE EITHER HAVE TO CALL HIM A LIAR, A WORLD LEADER OR WE HAVE TO MAKE UP NAMES TO CALL HIM. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED IN THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WHEN A MEMBER OF THE MAJORITY SAID THEY ARE COMPLAINING TO A BATTERED WIFE THAT’S BELOW THE DIGNITY OF THIS BODY TO TAKE A WORLD LEADER AND BELITTLE HIM ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A HOT WAR WITH RUSSIA, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP GAVE THEM OFFENSIVE WEAPONS, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP DID NOTHING WRONG, WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THEM ALL I DAY LONG TODAY BUT BEFORE I CLOSE THE FIRST PART I HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE MY NORTH LEADER IN THE SENATE RECOGNIZED THAT THE MAY JOTTER DID NOT DO THEIR JOB BECAUSE HE IS ASKING FOR WITNESSES. THE MINORITY LEADER IN THE SENATE WENT OUT AND SAID THEY DENIED MY WITNESSES AND THE QUESTIONS, WELCOME TO THE CLUB, THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED HERE FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS SO TODAY WE ARE GOING TO TALK A LOT ABOUT IMPEACHMENT AND THE PRESIDENT AND TWO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, ABUSE OF POWER BECAUSE THEY CANNOT PIN ANYTHING ON HIM AND THEN THEY ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, IT’S LIKE CHILDREN SAYING WE DID NOT GET OUR WAY. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE OF THE CLOCK AND THE CALENDAR ARE TERRIBLE MASTERS AND THE MAJORITY WILL OWN THAT PROBLEM TODAY BECAUSE TO THE CLOCK AND THE CALENDAR, FACTS DO NOT MATTER. THE PROMISES TO THE BASE MATTERS AND THE PROMISES TO THE BASE ARE KEPT >> GENTLEMEN FROM NEW YORK >> MADAM SPEAKER I YIELD MYSELF SO MUCH TIME AS I MAY CONSUME THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MUST NOW CONSIDER TWO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. THE FIRST CHARGES THAT THE PRESIDENT USED HIS PUBLIC OFFICE TO COERCE A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT INTO ATTACKING HIS POLITICAL RIFLE THE SECOND ARTICLE CHARGES THAT THE PRESIDENT TOOK EXTREME AND UNPRECEDENTED STEPS TO OBSTRUCT OUR INVESTIGATION INTO HIS CONDUCT. TAKEN TOGETHER, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP PLACED HIS PRIEF POLITICAL INTERESTS ABOVE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND OUR ELECTIONS AND ABOVE OUR SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES, AFTER MONTHS OF INVESTIGATION THERE COULD BE NO SERIOUS DEBATE ABOUT THE EVIDENCE AT HAPPENED ON JULY 25TH WHEN HE SPOKE TO PRESIDENT ZELENSKY OF UKRAINE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAD THE UPPER HAND. THE PRESIDENT HAD ALREADY DEMANDED THAT UKRAINE ANNOUNCE AN INVESTIGATION OF HIS POLITICAL POAPTS, UKRAINE NEEDED OUR HELP, BOTH MILITARY AID AND

AN OVAL OFFICE MEETING TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT THE UNITED STATES CONTINUES TO STAND WITH UKRAINE AGAINST RUSSIAN AGGRESSION, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOCUSED ON THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON THIS CALL BUT INSTEAD HE PRIVATIZED HIS POLITICAL INTERESTS, HE ASKED PRESIDENT ZELENSKY FOR A FAVOR, ANNOUNCE TWO BOGUS POLITICAL INVESTIGATION ONE INTO PRESIDENT BIDEN AND ANOTHER TO ADVANCE A CONSPIRACY THEORY THAT UKRAINE NO NOT RUSSIA ATTACKED OTHER ELECTIONS IN 2016, NEITHER REQUEST WAS PREMISED ON ANY NATIONAL SECURITY OR FOREIGN POLICY INTEREST. ONE WAS INTENDED FO HELP PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CONCEAL THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ELECTION, THE OTHER WAS INTENDED TO HELP HIM GAIN AN ADVANTAGE IN THE 2020 ELECTION, AFTER THE CALL PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP RATCHETED UP THE PRESSURE, HE DI DEPLOYED HIS REPRESENTATIVE TO SAY THERE WOULD BE NO MEETING UNTIL THEY ANNOUNCED THE INVESTIGATION, A PRESIDENT MAY NOT MISUSE THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY TO OBTAIN AN IMPROPER PERSONAL BENEFIT. THE EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP DID EXACTLY THAT. FOR THIS ALONE HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED BUT THE FIRST ARTICLE ALSO IDENTIFIES TWO AGGRAVATED FACTORS, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CONDITIONED MILITARY AID ON A PERSONAL FAVOR, HE HARMED AMERICA’S NATIONAL SECURITY AND WHEN HE DEMANDED A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATE HIS POLITICAL RIVAL. WITHIN OUR SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES THE PRESIDENT MAY NOT DECIDE FOR HIMSELF WHAT CONSTITUTES PROPER INQUIRY, MANY PRESIDENTS HAVE ASSERTED PRIVILEGES AND OTHER SUGGESTIONS TO SPECIFIC SUBPOENAS BUT ONLY PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS ORDERED THE CAR DEFIANCE OF A INVESTIGATION, THE PRESIDENT IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW AND HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR THIS AS WELL. CONGRESS CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT ELECTION TO ADDRESS THIS MISCONDUCT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS DEM DEMONSTRATED WEIGH CANNOT RELY ON THE NEXT ELECTION AS A REMEDY FOR PRESIDENTIAL MISCONDUCT WHEN THE PRESIDENT WORKS AGAINST THE INTEGRITY OF THAT ELECTION, HIS CONDUCT CONTINUES TO UNDERMINE OUR CONSTITUTION AND THREATEN OUR NEXT ELECTION, HIS ACTIONS WANTER HIS IMPEACHMENT AND DEMAND HIS REMOVAL FROM OFFICE, I URGE MY COLLEAGUES TO SUPPORT THESE ARTICLES AND I YIELD THE BALANCE OF MY TIME >>> THERE ARE NO ALLEGATIONS THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS COMMITTED THE CRIME, WE HAVE HAD THREE YEARS OF ALMOST NONSTOP INVESTIGATIONS WITH THE MUELLER REPORT, THE ADAM SCHIFF INVESTIGATION, AND NO TIME WAS THERE ANY EVIDENCE THAT INDICATED DONALD J TRUMP VIOLATED ANY CRIMINAL STATUTE OF THE UNITED STATES. WHY ARE WE HERE? WE ARE HERE BECAUSE THE MAJORITY CAUCUS, THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY THE RADICAL WEST THEY HAVE WANTED TO REVERSE THE COURSE OF THE 2016 ELECTION EVER SINCE DONALD J TRUMP WON THAT ELECTION. LET’S LOOK AT THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. FIRST OF ALL, ABUSE OF POWER OUR COUNTRY HAS BEEN THROUGH A LOT

DO US A FAVOR. HE WAS REFERRING TO OUR COUNTRY, NOT PERSONAL POLITICAL GAIN. HE WAS NOT AFRAID TO LET THIS TRANSCRIPT GO PUBLIC. RELEASED THE TRANSCRIPT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CALL. THE SECOND ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT, OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS BASICALLY SAYS UNLESS THE PRESIDENT GIVES US EVERYTHING WE WANT, AND WHEN WE WANT IT, THAT IS A BUNCH OF BUNK. THE PRESIDENT HAS CERTAIN INDIVIDUAL PRIVILEGES BY VIRTUE OF HIS OFFICE. WHENEVER THERE HAS BEEN A DISPUTE BETWEEN THE EXECUTIVE AND LEGISLATIVE BRANCHES, THEY’VE GONE TO COURT THE SUPREME COURT A COUPLE WEEKS AGO SAID THAT THEY WOULD TAKE JURISDICTION OVER DECIDING WHETHER OR NOT THE PRESIDENT HAD TO COMPLY WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS TAX RETURNS. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN BENT TO IMPEACH BEFORE THE COURT DECIDES THIS, THIS MEANS THAT THERE IS A RUSH JOB TO DO THIS. WHY? BECAUSE THEY WANT TO INFLUENCE THE 2020 ELECTIONS THEY SPENT THREE YEARS DOING IT THEY SPENT MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS, PUTTING TOGETHER THIS IMPEACHMENT. THEY ALSO HAVE HAD THIS CONGRESS WRAPPED AROUND IMPEACHMENT STOP THIS CHARADE. BOAT NO. I YIELD BACK >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM WISCONSIN KNOWS FULL WELL THAT THE PRESIDENT ASSERTED NO PRIVILEGES HERE, HE SIMPLY ORDERED COMPLETE DEFIANCE OF THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY I NOW YIELD >> THANK YOU, SPEAKER, THANK YOU CHAIRMAN FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AS WE NAVIGATE THIS CHALLENGING TIME. WITH PROFOUND SADNESS I STAND IN SUPPORT OF THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S BEHAVIOR IS EXACTLY WHAT WE FEARED MOST, KNOWING THE RISK OF A PRESIDENT ABUSING THAT POWER FOR PERSONAL GAIN, THEY WERE PARTICULARLY CONCERNED ABOUT AN EXECUTIVE WHO CORRUPTED OUR INVESTIGATIONS OR SOUGHT TO CREATE CONSEQUENCES FOR HIS OWN MISCONDUCT IN CONGRESS. THEY CREATED IMPEACHMENT TO PROTECT OUR REPUBLIC. SOME SAY THAT WE ARE IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE WE DON’T LIKE HIM BECAUSE AT THIS MOMENT IT IS ABOUT MORE THAN DISAGREEMENT ABOUT PRESIDENTS, POLICIES AND PERSONALITY. THE TASK HERE IS NOT TO JUDGE THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF, INSTEAD WE MUST JUDGE HIS CONDUCT AND WHETHER OR NOT HIS ACTIONS HAVE UNDERMINED OUR CONSTITUTION. THE PRESIDENT HAS COMMITTED THE HIGHEST OF HIGH CRIMES, USING THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN OUR GOVERNMENT AND TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO PRESSURE A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS, UNDERMINING NATIONAL SECURITY, AND WHEN HE GOT CAUGHT, HE TRIED TO COVER IT UP, OBSTRUCTING THE INVESTIGATION AND REFUSING TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS AND WITNESSES, A GOVERNMENT WHERE THE PRESIDENT ABUSES HIS POWER IS NOT OF THE PEOPLE, A GOVERNMENT WHERE THE PRESIDENT PRESSURES A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO UNDERMINE OUR ELECTIONS IS NOT BY THE PEOPLE AND A COUNTRY WHERE THE PRESIDENT PUTS HIS OWN INTERESTS BEFORE THE COUNTRY. YOU KNOW IT, I KNOW IT, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW IT HIS ACTIONS ARE A THREAT TO OUR ELECTIONS AND OUR DEMOCRACY. IT LEAVES US NO PRINCIPLED ALTERNATIVE OTHER THAN ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. THE CONSTITUTION, AND THE COUNTRY DEPEND UPON IT >> THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. THE FOUNDERS OF THIS COUNTRY WARNED US AGAINST THE SINGLE PARTY IMPEACHMENT

AND BETTER AND BITTERLY AND IRREPARABLY DIVIDING OUR NATION, IN 23 YEARS OF THIS REPUBLIC THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A SINGLE EARLY, OR IMPEACHMENT PROCESS LIKE TODAY. OUR COLLEAGUES HAVE WEAPON EYES THE CONSTITUTION TO NULLIFY THE VOTES OF 63 MILLION AMERICANS WHO ELECTED DONALD J TRUMP THIS IS BEFORE THE JULY 25TH PHONE CALL THIS IS NOT ONLY A SINGLE PARTY IMPEACHMENT, IT IS ALSO FREE OF EVIDENCE. AFTER ALL THE HERCULEAN EFFORTS, THE DEMOCRATS KNOW THAT THERE IS ZERO DIRECT EVIDENCE TO SHOW THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP ENGAGED IN ANY ABUSE OF POWER THE ENTIRE CASE IS BASED ON HEARSAY, SPECULATION, AND CONJECTURE THE SECOND CLAIM IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS BY SIMPLY DOING VIRTUALLY WHAT EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT IN THE MODERN ERA HAS ALSO DONE. THAT IS TO ASSERT , FOR EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE, PROTECTING THE SEPARATION OF POWERS. THE DEMOCRATS COULD AND SHOULD, THEY SIMPLY COULD HAVE GOT AN EXPEDITE OF COURT ORDER COMPELLING THE EXPEDITED DOCUMENTS. THEY DIDN’T DO THAT HERE, THESE DEMOCRATS DON’T HAVE TIME FOR IT THEY ARE TRYING TO USE A MULTIMILLION TIMELINE TO TAKE DOWN A PRESIDENT. THEY HAVE FEVERS FULLY PRODUCED AND PURSUED IMPEACHMENT 2520 TIMES FASTER THAN THE IMPEACHMENT OF BILL CLINTON THEY HAVE STEAMROLLED OVER THE PROCESS >> I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES. TO THE LADY FROM WASHINGTON >> MR. SPEAKER, THIS IS A DAY OF ACCOUNTABILITY AND OUR DEMOCRACY THIS PRESIDENT COERCED A FRAGILE FOREIGN ALLY TO INVESTIGATE HIS POLITICAL OPPONENT TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTION AND HE LEVERAGED CRITICALLY NEEDED CONGRESSIONAL HE APPROVED MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE. THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO CLAIM THAT HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE CARED ABOUT CORRUPTION. IF HE TRULY CARED ABOUT CORRUPTION, HE WOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THE TALKING POINTS PREPARED ON ANTICORRUPTION HE NEVER MENTIONS THE WORD CORRUPTION HE DID RELEASE THE EIGHT IN 2017 AND 2018, BUT NOT IN 2019. WHY? IN 2019, VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT HEARSAY, WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY. THE PRESIDENT TOLD US HIMSELF ON NATIONAL TELEVISION EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTED FROM THE PHONE CALL, HE CAME ONTO THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN AND SAID I WANTED PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO OPEN AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDENS HE SOLICITED HE SOLICITED FOREIGN INTERFERENCE BEFORE, HE IS DOING IT NOW, THE PRESIDENT IS THE SMOKING GUN. OUR FOUNDERS ENTRUSTED US WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ATTRACTING OUR DEMOCRACY WHICH GETS POWER FROM THE BLOODLINES OF MONARCHS BUT FROM THE VOTES OF WE THE PEOPLE WITHOUT THAT, WE ARE NO LONGER A DEMOCRACY, WE ARE A MONARCHY OR A DICTATORSHIP. SO TODAY, TO UPHOLD MY OATH TO CONSTITUTION AND COUNTRY, I WILL VOTE TO IMPEACH DONALD J TRUMP >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA GYM AND FROM TEXAS >> IMPEACHMENT IS THE GREATEST

ITEM, THE PETITION TO MOVE FORWARD IS SO CONSEQUENTIAL, IT HAS ONLY BEEN DONE THREE TIMES PREVIOUSLY IN OUR NATIONS HISTORY, ALL BASED ON THE LEGITIMATE EVIDENCE OF CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. MY COLLEAGUES HAVE DIMINISHED WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SOLEMN PROCEEDING SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE THE MAN WHO HAS OCCUPIED THE WHITE HOUSE IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT, CLEARLY VOTING MOTIVATED BY HATRED BY MR. TRUMP THEY HAVE A LONG PLAN TO REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE. UNNECESSARILY IT WAS HELD BEHIND CLOSED DOORS THE RESULT IS THAT THEY WERE BLOCKED. PREVENTING ANYONE FROM BEING ABLE TO SPEAK, HE WAS EVEN CALLED OUT BY LIBERAL LIBERAL MEDIA. THERE WAS COMPLETE DISREGARD FOR THE HOUSE RULES THERE’S NO REAL EVIDENCE THERE ARE NO CLAIMS LISTED IN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT THIS IMPEACHMENT SCHEME IS NOTHING MORE THAN ATTEMPT TO DAMAGE THE PRESIDENTS ELECTABILITY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THROUGH THIS CHARADE AND ARE FED UP, IT IS TIME FOR THIS MADNESS TO STOP DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN FROM CALIFORNIA CHAIRMAN, FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP LET US START BY MAKING THIS VERY SIMPLE. NO ONE IN AMERICA CAN DO WHAT DONALD TRUMP DID AND GET AWAY WITH IT NO MEMBER OF CONGRESS CAN CALL UP A FOREIGN OFFICIAL AND ASK FOR HELP, IF WE DID THAT, WE WOULD GET INDICTED. I FIRST SWORE AN OATH WHEN I JOINED, IT WAS AN OATH NOT TO A POLITICAL PARTY, PRESIDENT, OR KING, IT WAS A DOCUMENT THAT MADE AMERICA THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH AND IT CONTAINS A SAFEGUARD AS TO WHY THE PRESIDENTS ABUSE OF POWER IS SO EXTREME THAT IT WARRANTS IMPEACHMENT. WE ARE NOT HERE BECAUSE OF POLICY DISPUTES. I DISAGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT BUT I ACKNOWLEDGE HE HAS THE RIGHT TO RESTRICT THE NUMBER OF REFUGEES COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY, TO WRITE EXECUTIVE ORDERS, TO GIVE TAX BREAKS TO THE WEALTHY, BUT HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHEAT OR SOLICIT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE ELECTIONS IT IS ILLEGAL, IT IS NOT WHAT HE WAS ELECTED TO DO, WE WILL NOT STAND FOR IT. HIS ACTIONS IN THIS CASE WERE PARTICULARLY INSIDIOUS BECAUSE HE ALSO USED OUR GOVERNMENT FOR HIS PRIVATE GAIN AND IN ADDITION TO A CRITICAL WHITE HOUSE MEETING, THE PRESIDENT ALSO HARMED US NATIONAL SECURITY. AND THE PRESIDENT SOLICITED FOREIGN INTERFERENCE AGAIN ON THE SOUTH LAWN OF THE WHITE HOUSE WHEN HE AGAIN ASKED UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE HIS POLITICAL OPPONENT AND ASKED CHINA TO DO THE SAME. THAT ABUSE OF POWER IS NOT ACCEPTABLE WHETHER OR NOT THE SENATE CONVICTS THE HOUSE IS THEIR DUTY TO DO THE RIGHT THING. THAT’S WHY BIPARTISAN BILLS ARE STUCK IN THE SENATE. WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE FAITHFUL TO THIS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE SENATE MAY OR MAY NOT DO. OUR CHILDREN ARE WATCHING NO PRESIDENT EVER WANTS TO BE IMPEACHED. WHETHER HE LEAVES IN ONE MONTH, ONE YEAR OR FIVE YEARS, THIS IMPEACHMENT IS PERMANENT, IT WILL FOLLOW HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. THE PEOPLE KNOW WHY WE IMPEACHED IT IS ALL VERY SIMPLE. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW, NOT OUR

COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF, NOT OUR PRESIDENT >> THANK YOU, IT IS MY PLEASURE TO YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF SEE THE GENTLENESS RECOGNIZED >> 63 MILLION AMERICANS WENT TO THE POLLS AND ELECTED DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. HOUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO OVERTURN THE ELECTION EVER SINCE. IN FACT THEY’VE TRIED FIVE ADDITIONAL TIMES TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, INCLUDING THE VOTE IN MAY OF 2017, JUST FIVE MONTHS IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR, HOUSE DEMOCRATS TOOK CONTROL OF THIS CHAMBER AND ARE FACED WITH A CHOICE POLICIES THAT CAN IMPACT THEIR LIVES, THEY MADE THEIR CHOICE SINCE THEN, HOUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE ISSUED MORE SUBPOENAS THAN BILLS SIGNED INTO LAW RATHER THAN LAUNCH A LEGITIMATE INVESTIGATION, THEY CHANGED THE LANGUAGE TO SELL US TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE REJECTED IT INSTEAD OF RESOLVING DISPUTES, THEY RUSH TO IMPEACHMENT VOTE HERE WE ARE 12 WEEKS LATER VOTING WHETHER OR NOT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT BASED ON THE THINNEST RECORD IN HISTORY THE BODY OF EVIDENCE IS WEAK IT IS HOPEFULLY SUFFICIENT FOR IMPEACHMENT. WITH THAT, I YIELD BACK THIS INSTITUTION >> I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE GENTLEMAN MARYLAND >> RECOGNIZED >> THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER AMERICAN ELECTIONS BELONG TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. NOT THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, NOT FOREIGN POWERS. NO PRESIDENT MAY TREAT THE PEOPLE BY WORKING WITH A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO STEAL FROM US, A FREE AND FAIR ELECTION, NO PRESIDENT WHO ATTEMPTS IT MAY COVER UP THAT SHEETING BY SYSTEMATICALLY OBSTRUCTING CONGRESS IN OUR ARTICLE TWO OF TOUCHE AND DOES NOT OF THE PRESIDENT TO DO WHATEVER HE WANTS, THE REASON WE HAVE CONSTITUTION IS TO KEEP GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FROM DOING WHATEVER THEY WANT. IF WE THE PEOPLE LOSE THE CERTAINTY OF FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS TO PRESIDENTIAL CORRUPTION AND FOREIGN MANIPULATION, LOSE OUR DEMOCRACY ITSELF THE MOST PRECIOUS INHERITANCE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM PRIOR GENERATIONS WHO GAVE EVERYTHING THEY HAD TO DEFEND IT. THE STRUGGLE FOR DEMOCRACY IS THE MEANING OF AMERICA THAT IS WHY WE REMAIN THE LAST BEST HOPE OF A WORLD RAVAGED BY AUTHORITARIANISM, VIOLENCE AND CORRUPTION. WE MUST ACT NOW, TO PROTECT ELECTIONS AND SAFEGUARD CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY FOR THE ENORMOUS AND UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGES STILL AHEAD OF US GEORGIA HAS DEMOCRATS AND ZERO CAUSE FOR EITHER. WHILE TRUMP HAS LED, OUR COUNTRY HAS THRIVED AND WASHINGTON LIBERALS HAVE FAILED, DESPITE THE COMMITMENT OF OUR COLLEAGUES, TO OBSTRUCT THIS ADMINISTRATION’S AGENDA AT EVERY TURN, OUR COUNTRY CONTINUES TO SUCCEED. IN THIS BODY, HOWEVER, WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO HAVE HER ON WHAT I WANT AND NEED, WE HAVE NOT HEARD OUR BORDER. THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC RAGES IN OUR COMMUNITY. IF STRUCTURE IS STILL IN DIRE NEED OF AN OVERHAUL. WE STILL HAVE NOT REACHED BIPARTISAN RESOLUTION ON DRUG. IF CONGRESS HAD NOT BEEN STUCK FOR FIVE YEARS IN THIS UGLY IMPEACHMENT DEBACLE, THINK OF WHAT WE COULD HAVE DONE. THE LIVES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED, COMMUNITIES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN IMPROVED, THE CRISIS ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER ENDED, AND THE POSITIVE

WORK THAT WE SHOULD DO FOR OUR COUNTRY, BUT DIDN’T, ALL BECAUSE OF DIVISIVE, POLITICAL THEATRICS. CONGRESS CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS AND AMERICA DESERVES BETTER. I YIELD BACK MY TIME >> THE GERMAN FROM GEORGIA RESERVES >> I YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE DISTINGUISHED GERMAN FROM RHODE ISLAND LJ TRUMP. NO ONE RUNS FOR CONGRESS TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT, THIS PRESIDENT HAS LEFT US NO CHOICE. RESIDENT TRUMP ABUSED HIS POWERS OF HIS OFFICE WHEN HE SOLICITED FOREIGN AFFAIRS TO UNDERMINE THE ELECTION, UNDERMINING THE SECURITY OF THE ELECTION WHEN HE SECURED HIS OWN POLITICAL INTERESTS AHEAD OF THE INTERESTS OF OUR COUNTRY. HE TRIED TO CHEAT TO WIN AN ELECTION. THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR DEMOCRACY IF WE DO NOT HOLD THE PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE TODAY, WE WILL LIVE IN A DICTATORSHIP WHERE ANY FUTURE PRESIDENT WILL BE FREE TO ABUSE THEIR OFFICE FOR EVERY MEMBER OF THIS CHAMBER FACES A CHOICE WEATHER TO DO WITH THE DEMANDS TURN A BLIND TO THIS THE OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE. THIS IS NOT ABOUT MAKING, THIS LAWLESS IN THE WAY OUR FRAMEWORK INTENDED DO NOT SEEK SAFETY IN THE HIGH GRASS OF THE VOTES OF THESE ARTICLES. WE ARE ALL AMERICANS, ALL THESE, FOREIGN AND MYSTIC DIVIDED WE RISK LOSING OUR DEMOCRACY. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE AS IT WILL LEAVE YOU WITH ONLY ONE ANSWER, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MUST BE IMPEACHED HE TRIED TO CHEAT AND HE GOT CAUGHT, HE CONFESSED, THEN HE OBSTRUCTED THE INVESTIGATION INTO HIS MISCONDUCT. FOR OUR DEMOCRACY, FOR OUR CONSTITUTION, FOR THE PEOPLE WE REPRESENT AND ALL WHO WILL INHERIT COUNTRY FROM US, I PRAY YOU DO THE RIGHT THING. SEE THE GENTLEMAN YIELDS ` >> IT GIVES PLEASURE TO YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF TO THE GYM AND FROM GEORGIA TOTAL SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP THE MATTER OF THE HOUSE IS BASED SOLELY ON A WITCHHUNT, IT IS TANTAMOUNT TO A COUP THIS IS A BAD DAY FOR OUR NATION WHEN ONE POLITICAL PARTY ALONG WITH THE DEEP STATE AND MAINSTREAM MEDIA TRY TO HIJACK OUR CONSTITUTION THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY TURNED THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS OF GOAL WEAPON, SOMETHING THE REFUSED TO DO OVER THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS PUT OUR NATION FIRST AND LOOK BEYOND THIS HOAX THE PAST WHEN AMERICA FIRST. HE’S BUILDING THE MILITARY AND RE-CREATING OUR SPACE FORCE. I YIELD BACK. THE GENTLEMAN YIELDS BACK AND RESERVES >> I’M HEARING A LOT FOR MY COLLEAGUES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE, EXCEPT THE DEFENSE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP I YIELD >> THE GERMAN FROM FLORIDA RECOGNIZED >> THIS IMPEACHMENT IS EIGHT LINES CALL TRANSCRIPT, BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE HERE THIS IS ABOUT A SCHEME THAT LASTED MONTHS AND INVOLVED DOZENS OF TRUMPET MINISTRATION OFFICIAL OFFICIALS LOOK AT THE DIRECT EVIDENCE CALLS FROM WAY BACK IN MAY. THE PRESIDENT TOLD HIS TEAM TALK TO RUDY GIULIANI. HIS MESSAGE, NO WHITE HOUSE MEETING UNLESS UKRAINE HELPS HIM IN A 2020 ELECTION. THERE WAS A PRE- RISK PREREQUISITE OF INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE BIDENS INVESTOR SAID THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT TO DO WAS TO COMMIT TO AN INVESTIGATION OF THE BIDENS JUST BEFORE THE CALL, AND ASSUMING HE IS CONVINCES PRESIDENT TRUMP TO INVESTIGATE,

WE WILL NAIL DOWN A VISIT TO WASHINGTON. DIRECT EVIDENCE KEPT COMING GET MORE TEXTS, E-MAILS, CALLS, ALL WITH THE SAME MESSAGE IF UKRAINE DID NOT ANNOUNCE AN INVESTIGATION, THEY WOULD NOT GET THE WHITE HOUSE MEETING THEY WERE PROMISED AND THEY WOULD NOT GET WHAT THEY NEEDED IN THE WAR AGAINST RUSSIA AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL POWER COMES FROM THE PEOPLE. THROUGH ELECTIONS. THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES THAT WE PROTECT THOSE ELECTIONS. WHEN THE PRESIDENT ABUSED HIS POWER TO SOLICIT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE, HE WAS CHEATING AND HIS ACTIONS FORCE US TO SUBJECT DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION, SUPPORT THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, AND REMEMBER THAT NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW IN AMERICA >> THERE IS NO PRESSURE, CONDITIONALITY, THEY DID NOTHING – – POLITICAL EFFORT TO REMOVE PRESIDENT OFFICE, I AM NOT SURPRISED THIS DAY HAS COME BUT I AM DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE IMPEACHMENT IS ONE OF THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL DECISIONS THAT WE CAN MAKE IN THIS BODY AND THIS IMPEACHMENT IS BASED PURELY ON PARTISAN MOTIVES SEEKING SPEAKER PELOSI SAID WE SHOULD NOT GO DOWN THIS PATH BECAUSE OF HOW DIVISIVE IT WOULD BE, UNFORTUNATELY IT IS CLEAR THE MAJORITY HAS HAD LASER FOCUS ON ONE THING FOR THREE YEARS, IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT. THE MAJORITY HAS FAILED TO DELIVER FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, TO PASS A BUDGET OR SPENDING BILLS ON TIME, FAILED TO DELIVER BIPARTISAN SOLUTIONS THAT WILL ACTUALLY HELP TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF AMERICANS. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THROUGH THIS SATURATED FOR WHAT IT IS, AND ATTEMPT TO UNDO THE 2016 ELECTION BASED ON HEARSAY AND OPINION, NOT FACT THE TRANSCRIPT NO CONDITION NO CONDITION FOR PLACE OF AID, THERE WAS NO PRESSURE AND UKRAINE RECEIVED THE AID WITHOUT TAKING ANY ACTIONS. IS CLEAR THAT HE MAY ONLY BE IMPEACHED FOR HIGH CRIMES OR MISDEMEANORS NOWHERE IN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BUT TODAY DOES IT ARGUE THAT HE COMMITTED TREASON, BRIBERY, OR ANY CRIME UNDER THE LAW, IT IS NOT OVERWHELMING, COMPELLING, BIPARTISAN BUT THE SPEAKER WAS RIGHT IN ONE WAY, THIS IS INCREDIBLY DIVISIVE, IT HAS LOWERED THE BAR FOR WHAT FUTURE PRESIDENT WILL FACE. I HOPE WE WILL FINALLY MOVE PAST THIS NIGHTMARE AND GET TO WORK DELIVERING RESULTS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! >> THE EVIDENCE IS CLEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HIS POWER TO PRESSURE UKRAINE THIS IS THE HIGHEST OF HIGH CRIMES AND PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST BE HELD TO ACCOUNT. I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES TO MR. CARAY AT >> THE GENTLE MAN IS RECOGNIZED >> I THINK THE GENTLEMAN FOR YIELDING. AS A MEMBER OF THE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE, I KNOW FIRSTHAND THE DANGERS OF FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS, AS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS IT IS MY SWORN DUTY TO ENSURE THAT OUR NATION IS SECURE FROM ALL THREATS FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC, CONGRESS HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL JOB TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGATIONS OF MISCONDUCT BY THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES PRESIDENT. THE CONSTITUTION IS THE HIGHEST LAW OF THE LAND, CREATING A SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES TO PREVENT. THIS IS A COEQUAL BRANCH WITH DUTIES GIVEN TO US BY THE FRIENDS. THIS IS A VERY SAD DAY AND I DO NOT TAKE IMPEACHMENT LIGHTLY. I AM HERE TO DO MY JOB AS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS [ SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE ] TODAY I PRAY FOR GOD FOR HIS GUIDANCE IN UNITING OUR GREAT

NATION NOW TO GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK, I YIELD >> A TRANSLATION OF YOUR REMARKS WILL BE REQUIRED. GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK, DO YOU RESERVE? GENTLEMAN RESERVES. MR. COLLINS IS RECOGNIZED >> HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH MY CHAIRMAN, THE FACTS ARE VERY MUCH DISPUTED BY THE MAJORITY AND THE WITNESSES WHO ACTUALLY TESTIFIED. I YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF TO THE GENTLE MEN FROM GEORGIA >> THANK YOU FOR YIELDING. MR SPEAKER I RISE TODAY AND OPPOSITION TO THE DEMOCRATS WITH THEIR PROCESS THAT MAKES A MOCKERY OF THE RULES OF THIS HOUSE AND IS FRANKLY DANGEROUS TO THIS COUNTRY. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE MADE IT CLEAR SINCE DAY ONE THAT THEY WANTED TO MOVE TOWARD IMPEACHMENT WELL BEFORE ACCUSATIONS TOOK PLACE THEY DON’T RECOGNIZE THE DAMAGE THIS WILL CAUSE OUR POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS AND AMERICA’S TRUST FOR YEARS TO COME. EVERY AMERICAN SHOULD BE CONCERNED THAT SPEAKER PELOSI DOES NOT TRUST OUR CITIZENS DO NOT DECIDE WHO SHOULD LEAD OUR GREAT COUNTRY. THIS PROCESS IS NOT FOCUSED ON STRENGTHENING OR PROTECTING POLITICAL FOUNDATIONS BUT RATHER IN SHAPING PUBLIC OPINION. IS IT WORTH THAT? NOT ONLY IS THE PROCESS ALARMING, BUT IT IS WASTING TAXPAYER DOLLARS AND VALUABLE TIME THAT COULD BE USED TO MOVE OUR COUNTRY FORWARD THAT INCLUDES SECURING OUR BORDERS, ADDRESSING STUDENT LOAN DEBT OR BRINGING DOWN THE COST OF HEALTHCARE AND PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. HIRES ALL OF MY COLLEAGUES TO ASK THEMSELVES WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS TRULY BEING DONE FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY. THANK YOU MR. SPEAKER I YIELD BACK >> THE GERMAN THE CHAIRMAN FROM NEW YORK, CHAIRMAN ADLER >> AFTER RECOVERING FROM THOSE GAINS, RIGHT NOW YIELD TO MR. NEGUS >> THANK YOU MR. SPEAKER. I WANT TO THANK CHAIRMAN ADLER AND SPEAKER PELOSI PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS LEFT US NO CHOICE. THE PRESIDENT ABUSED THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE AND INVITED A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS MAKING MATTERS WORSE OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION HAVE DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO PREVENT CONGRESS FROM UNCOVERING THE TRUTH. LET US BE CLEAR. IN THE HISTORY OF OUR REPUBLIC, NO PRESIDENT HAS EVER OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS LIKE THIS BEFORE DURING THE WATERGATE INVESTIGATION, AS MY COLLEAGUES WILL KNOW, PRESIDENT NIXON’S CHIEF OF STAFF TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CHIEF OF STAFF REFUSED PRESIDENT NIXON’S COUNSEL TESTIFIED. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S REFUSED. WHITE HOUSE AIDES CLOSE TO PRESIDENT NIXON TESTIFIED. PRESIDENT TRUMP REFUSED TO ALLOW ANY AID WHO MAY ACKNOWLEDGE RELEVANCE IN THIS INVESTIGATION TO TESTIFY, SIMPLY PUT, THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS ENGAGED IN A WHOLESALE OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHY WE ARE CONSIDERING TWO DIFFERENT ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT FOR THE HOUSE TODAY. EVERY MEMBER OF THIS BODY HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO UPHOLD OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEFEND OUR REPUBLIC AND HOLD THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. I WILL VOTE YES ON BOTH ARTICLES BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES >> THE GERMAN YIELD BACK. JIM AND FROM GEORGIA? >> I NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE INVESTIGATION WOULD YIELD THIS PICK I HEALED

A MINUTE AND A HALF DIRECTION OF THE GENTLE MAN IS RECOGNIZED >> MR. SPEAKER? THE SPEAKER THAT – – THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS, WE SHOULD BE BETTER THAN THIS. DURING MEMBER REMARKS IN THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, THAT IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS STATED AND I QUOTE TO MY REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES, HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED DURING THIS WATERSHED MOMENT IN OUR NATIONS HISTORY? MR. SPEAKER, IT WILL NOT BE WATCHING SPORTS ON A LAPTOP DURING OFFICIAL ASEA PROCEEDINGS TO IMPEACH A SITTING PRESIDENT IT WILL NOT BE USING EXPLETIVES TO REFER TO OUR PRESIDENT, CALLING FOR HIS IMPEACHMENT JUST HOURS AFTER BEING SWORN INTO CONGRESS. IT WILL NOT BE USING THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE ONCE RESPECTED INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE TO MISLEAD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IT CERTAINLY WON’T BE USING THE MOST SERIOUS AND SOLEMN POWERS OF CONGRESS TO OVERTURN A LEGITIMATE NATIONAL ELECTION FOR POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY. NO, MR SPEAKER MY FELLOW REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES AND MYSELF WILL NOT BE REMEMBERED IN HISTORY FOR DOING ANY OF THOSE THINGS. BECAUSE WE KNOW THIS IS FAR TOO GRAVE A MATTER FOR SOME VERSIONS SUCH AS THESE. WE SHOULD ALL BE BETTER THAN THIS. I YIELD BACK >> THE GERMAN RESERVES – – THE GENTLEMAN RESERVES. THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA HAS 157 MINUTES REMAINING >> THANK YOU MR. SPEAKER. I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLE LADY >> OUR COUNTRY HAS EXPENSED GREAT TRAGEDY AT A MOMENT OF PROOF, WE HAVE WITNESSED PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ABUSE OF HIS OFFICE , PUTTING THE INTEGRITY OF A GOVERNMENT OF, FOR, AND BY THE PEOPLE AT GREAT RISK. THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING AND CLEARLY SHOWS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL CONTINUE TO ABUSE HIS OFFICE AND OBSTRUCT CONGRESS IF LEFT UNCHECKED. THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CONDUCTED A ROBUST INVESTIGATION INTO THE PRESIDENT’S MASONIC MISCONDUCT TWELVE WITNESSES INTERVIEWED, 17 DESK DEPOSITIONS TOTALING OVER 100 HOURS, EXAMINING TEXT MESSAGES AND E-MAILS, REVIEWING HIS OWN WORDS AND ACTIONS, AND PUBLISHED A 300 PAGE REPORT DETAILING THE FINDINGS. ALL OF THIS DESPITE THE FACT UNDER THE PRESIDENT’S DIRECTION, CURRENT AND FORMER ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICIALS REFUSED TO TESTIFY, EVEN IGNORING SUBPOENAS AND 71 DOCUMENT REQUESTS WERE DENIED. THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE THEN REVIEWED THE EVIDENCE AND CONCLUDED THAT TWO OF THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT WERE WARRANTED, THE F SHOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO OUR FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS AND OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. THE MOST POWERFUL EVIDENCE OF THIS PATTERN HAS COME FROM THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF, IN 2016 WE HEARD HIM WHEN HE CALLED ON RUSSIA TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS. HE SAID RUSSIA IF YOU ARE LISTENING, HE THEN REPEATED THIS CALL FOR ELECTION INTERFERENCE ON THE JULY 25TH CALL WITH THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT AND WE HEAR HIM AGAIN ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN, FURTHER ADDING CHINA TO THAT MAKES. I STAND READY TO PROTECT OUR SACRED REPUBLIC, SUPPORT THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AND PRAY MY COLLEAGUES HAVE THE COURAGE TO DO THE SAME, WE MUST UPHOLD THE OATH OF OFFICE, DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION AND PRESENT PRECIOUS DEMOCRACY BECAUSE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. I YIELD BACK >> THANK YOU FOR YIELDING MR. SPEAKER, IN 2016 LATIMER HOOTON AND HIS CRONIES WAGED WAR ON OUR ELECTIONS, WITH THE GOAL OF SOWING DISCORD AND DIVISION IN AMERICA. DO YOU THINK HE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL? SOMEWHERE IN RUSSIA RIGHT NOW, VLADIMIR PUTIN IS LAUGHING AT US TODAY. THE MAJORITY HAS GIVEN HIM EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS. A DIVIDED AMERICA PARTISAN POLITICS WITH NASTY POLITICAL RHETORIC AT AN

ALL-TIME HIGH, SOME ALREADY ACROSS THE AISLE DISCREDITING THE RESULTS OF FUTURE ELECTIONS ALREADY. THE HOUSE MAJORITY HAS BEEN CARRYING OUT THE WISHES OF THE PRIVILEGED. THE DEMOCRATS ARE BOWED TO CONTINUE INVESTIGATIONS EVEN AFTER TODAY’S VOTE NO CRIMES TO SHOW FOR IT, NOT ONE ELEMENT OF A CRIME DEFINED, THIS DISGRACES THE INTEGRITY OF OUR DEMOCRACY. NOW IS THE TIME TO END ARTISAN POLITICS, COME TOGETHER AND PUT AMERICA FIRST I URGE THIS BODY TO VOTE NO TO PARTISAN IMPEACHMENT >> THE GERMAN RESERVES CHAIRMAN NADLER? >> I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES >> THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A SIX-HOUR LIVE DEBATE ON THE ARTICLES OF BEACH AND AGAINST PRESENT DONALD TRUMP. WE WILL STAY WITH THE DEBATE THROUGHOUT THE FINAL PROCESS BACK TO THE HOUSE FLOOR, LIFE PRESSURED A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO TARGET AN AMERICAN CITIZEN FOR POLITICAL GAIN, HELD JUSTIFICATION $91 MILLION IN MILITARY AID TO A VULNERABLE UKRAINE AS PART OF A SCHEME TO SOLICIT FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN AN AMERICAN ELECTION. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE, UNCONSCIONABLE, UNCONSTITUTIONAL. THERE ARE SOME WHO ARGUE THAT THE IMPEACHMENT OF THIS PRESIDENT WILL FURTHER DIVIDE AND ALREADY FRACTURE UNION. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIVISION AND CLARIFICATION IMMENSE PETERS ROSE UP TO CLARIFY THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUALLY. SOME ONCE DIVIDED THE NATION BUT WOMEN ROSE UP TO CLARIFY. ALL VOICES MUST BE HEARD IN OUR DEMOCRACY. JIM CROW ONCE DIVIDED HEY NATION, CIVIL RIGHTS CHAMPIONS ROSE UP TO CLARIFY THAT ALL ARE ENTITLED TO EQUAL PROTECTIONS UNDER THE LAW THERE IS A DIFFERENCE, BETWEEN DIVISION AND CLARIFICATION. WE WILL HOLD THIS PRESIDENT COUNTABLE FOR HIS STUNNING ABUSE OF POWER. WE WILL HOLD THIS PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR UNDERMINING NATIONAL SECURITY AND CORRUPTING OUR DEMOCRACY.

NULLIFYING A NATIONAL ELECTION REQUIRES OVERWHELMING HIGH CRIMES REPORTED WITH INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE NATION FINDS COMPELLING ARTICLE ONES MADE UP CRIME CALLED ABUSIVE OFFICE, IT DOES NOT CHARGE THAT THE PRESIDENT BROKE ANY. CONGRESS DOESN’T LIKE THE WAY HE LAW DISCHARGED HIS CONSTITUTIONAL DUTIES. THIS WILL REDUCE THE PRESIDENCY TO THAT OF A MINISTER , DESTROYING OUR POWERS OF THE HEART OF THE CONSTITUTION ANOTHER MADE UP CRIME, ABSORPTION OF CONGRESS, MEANING THAT HE SOUGHT TO DEFEND HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND THOSE OF HIS OFFICE, REMOVING THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND PLACING CONGRESS IN ALONE DEFINING HIS POWERS. OUR BILL OF RIGHTS GUARANTEES EVERY AMERICAN THE RIGHT TO CONFRONT THEIR ACCUSER, CALL WITNESSES TO THE DEFENSE, TO BE PROTECTED FROM HEARSAY AND DEFEND THESE RIGHTS IN COURTS DEMOCRATS HAVE TRAMPLED ALL OF THIS. THE DEMOCRATS HANDPICKED WITNESSES AND PROVIDED NO FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE THAT HE LEAKED AID TO ACTION, TWO OF THE WITNESSES PROVIDED FIRST-HALF FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE THAT HE SPECIFICALLY ORDERED NO QUID PRO QUO. IN ANY CASE, NO ACTUAL CRIME, NO EVIDENCE, THIS WILL BE LEFT OUT OF COURT IN A HEARTBEAT, THAT IS THE CASE BEFORE US TODAY, IT WOULD WEED OUT THE CLOWNS OF IMPEACHMENT NOW WE KNOW HOW RECKLESS THE DEMOCRATS ARE

DOUBLE TUCK USED BY POWER OF THE PRESIDENCY TO PRESSURE HE CORRUPTED OUR ELECTIONS AND COMPROMISE NATIONAL SECURITY SO THAT HE COULD KEEP POWER, NOT POWER FOR THE PEOPLE, BUT POWER FOR HIMSELF. IN 2016, CANDIDATE TRUMP CALLED FOR FOREIGN INTERFERENCE WHEN HE SAID RUSSIA, IF YOU ARE LISTENING, AND HE THOUGHT FOR A FAVOR FROM UKRAINE PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTACKED WITH CONTINUING THREATS TO OUR SYSTEM OF FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS LIKE ALL OF YOU, I TOOK AN OATH TO SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AND I URGE MY COLLEAGUES TO STAND UP AGAINST HIS ABUSE OF POWER AND INSTRUCTIONS OF ELECTIONS.

AND THE DEMOCRATS SUDDENLY BECOME CONSTITUTIONAL SPIRIT WE ARE NOT BEING DEVOURED BECAUSE FROM WITHIN FACE THIS HORROR BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS FEAR, THEY ESTABLISHED DC, THEY CALL THIS PRESIDENT WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER OUR NATION.

NADLER >> I NOW YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN FROM

GEORGIA >> YOU ARE RECOGNIZE. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. I WAS AMONG THOSE THAT SUPPORTED IMPEACHMENT BEFORE UKRAINE AND CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT TODAY, BECAUSE OUR PRESIDENT IS AS WE SPEAK, ABUSING HIS POWER AND PLACING HIMSELF ABOVE THE LAW. THERE IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER UPON OUR DEMOCRACY MORE AMERICAN SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT TODAY THAN ANY TIME SINCE RICHARD NIXON’S FINAL WEEKS IN OFFICE WE KNOW IT IS WRONG AND WE KNOW WHAT IS AT STAKE NOT JUST THAT OUR ELECTIONS WERE ATTACKED, OUR ELECTIONS ARE UNDER ATTACK RIGHT NOW. THE VERY DAY THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE VOTED ON ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, PRESIDENT TRUMP WELCOMED RUDY GIULIANI BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS STILL AT IT. HE IS DOUBLING DOWN, HE DOES NOT THINK HE CAN WIN AN ELECTION FAIR AND SQUARE, SO HE IS TRYING TO TEACH. IGNORE THESE CRIMES NOT JUST GIVING THE PRESIDENT A PASS, IT IS GIVING HIM A GREEN LIGHT, THOSE WHO WOULD VOTE AGAINST IMPEACHMENT ARE NOT JUST FORCING HIS PAST ACTIONS, BUT HIS FUTURE ONES AS WELL DO YOU THINK I EXAGGERATE? I URGE YOU TO FIND A BLACK MAN OR WOMAN OF A CERTAIN AGE AND THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT THERE ARE BRAVE AMERICANS, PATRIOTS WILLING TO WHISK FAR MORE THAN A POLITICAL CAREER TO MARCH SO THAT WE CAN HAVE FAIR AND FREE ELECTIONS. WE ARE SIMPLY CALLED UPON TODAY TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND I AM PROUD TO VOTE YES ON IMPEACHMENT. WITH THAT, I YIELD >> I’M GLAD THAT MY COLLEAGUE JUST MENTIONED GEORGIA.

MANY HERE ARE NOT LISTENING TO WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING AND THEY THINK THEY KNOW BETTER THAN THE PEOPLE WE SERVE, OUR COMMUNITIES ARE BENEFITING GREATLY FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP’S AGENDA. SECURE VOTING, BETTER TRADE DEALS, UNFORTUNATELY, DEMOCRATIC OBSESSION WITH IMPEACHMENT IS ALL-CONSUMING. IS THIS HOW DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP WORKS NOTIFYING THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION, DISREGARDING THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND PREVENTING THE PRESIDENT FROM DOING THE JOB HE WAS ELECTED TO DO? AFTER POLITICALLY MOTIVATED IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS, DEMOCRATS HAVE DELIVERED WEAK ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ABUSE OF POWER? NOT ACCORDING TO THE UKRAINE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY CONFIRMED THERE WAS NO QUIT ” ,” OF COURSE HIS WORDS HAVE BEEN CONVENIENTLY DISMISSED, THE INSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, IS THIS THE NEW STANDARD? IF THIS IS THE NEW STANDARD, EVERY PRESIDENT SINCE JIMMY CARTER AND EVERY PRESIDENT SINCE JIMMY CARTER WOULD BE IMPEACHED. IT IS AN HONOR TO SERVE, BUT TODAY I AM DISTRAUGHT, TODAY DEMOCRATS WILL DISREGARD THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE , BUT TO COMPLETE IMPEACHED THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT, IT WOULD BE EQUALLY TROUBLING THAT THIS HAS ERODED AND WIPED OUT THE FAITH IN CONGRESS PRO QUO ONLY AFTER THE WHITE HOUSE LEARNED OF WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINTS AND AFTER AN ARTICLE WAS POSTED ABOUT >> THE GENTLY – – THE WOMAN IS MOST THE POWER OF THE OFFICE OF THE

PRESIDENCY IN HIS ATTEMPTS TO MAKE HIS WAY BACK TO REELECTION HE HAS ABUSED THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE BY ATTEMPTING TO SHAKEDOWN THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY THAT HAS BEEN OUR ALLY HE WANTED TO GET DIRT ON PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, BECAUSE HE SEES HIM AS THE BIGGEST THREAT TO HIS REELECTION. HE WANTED VICE PRESIDENT OF US WHO WANTED PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO STRENGTHEN HIS HAND IN THE 2020 ELECTION. ACT THREE, PRESIDENT TRUMP OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS, HAS BLOCKED CURRENT AND PAST EMPLOYEES, CONGRESS IS A COEQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT AND ONE OF OUR RESPONSIBILITIES IS TO PROVIDE OVERSIGHT, THE VERY CHECKS AND BALANCES MEMBERS BUILT INTO THE CONSTITUTION SO NO ONE BRANCH WOULD HAVE UNCHECKED POWER. THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO VOTE AND PASS ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ABUSED HIS POWER AND OBSTRUCTED THE ABILITY OF CONGRESS TO PERFORM OUR DUTY THE URGE TO MOVE FORWARD IS BECAUSE THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE PRESIDENT WILL NOT CONTINUE TO ABUSE THE POWERS OF HIS OFFICE, NO REASON TO BELIEVE HE PUT HIS FOOT ON THE SKILLS THIS REELECTION. AND AN ARTICLE WAS JUST RELEASED IN THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE WHERE HE CONFESSES TO CONTINUING EFFORTS TO INTERFERE IN THE ELECTION. WE WORRY ABOUT VOTER SUPPRESSION AND SCHEMES THAT PREVENT VOTERS FROM PARTICIPATING IN THE ELECTION AND WE WORRY ABOUT RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTION IT IS A SAD DAY IN AMERICA WHEN WE MUST WORRY ABOUT THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF INTERFERING IN THE ELECTION IN ORDER TO BE REELECTED ELECTIONS SHOULD BE DECIDED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I VOTE FOR BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT, IT IS MY CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO FULFILL MY OATH OF OFFICE, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW >> THE JAM IS RECOGNIZED FOR TWO MINUTES >> I DISCOVERED SOMETHING RECENTLY, SHOCKING, I KNOW IT TURNS OUT SOME PEOPLE DON’T LIKE PRESIDENT. HE IS LOUD, ARROGANT, THEY THINK HE SAYS BAD WORDS AND IS RUDE TO PEOPLE. I GET THAT, I REALLY DO. THIS VOTE, THIS DAY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH UKRAINE, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ABUSE OF POWER AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CONGRESS THIS VOTE, THIS DAY, IT IS ABOUT ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY, THEY HATE THIS PRESIDENT. THEY THINK WE ARE STUPID, I THINK WE MADE A MISTAKE THINK HILLARY CLINTON AND THAT IS WHAT THIS BOAT IS ABOUT. TO TAKE AWAY MY VOTE THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY MY PRESIDENT. SO THAT HE CANNOT BE REELECTED. THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. FOR THOSE THAT THINK THIS STARTED WITH THIS INVESTIGATION, YOU’VE BEEN TRYING THIS PRESIDENT SINCE BEFORE HE WAS SWORN INTO OFFICE. SOME OF YOU INTRODUCED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BEFORE HE WAS SWORN INTO OFFICE THIS IS NOT SOMETHING PRAYERFUL, MOURNFUL OR SAD, THE CHAOS AND THE SADNESS, BUT THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE GLEEFUL ABOUT AND YOU BEEN TRYING TO DO IT FOR 30 YEARS. YOU’VE BEEN TRYING TO DO IT FOR THREE THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH. I CAN GIVE YOU PAGES OF EXAMPLES OF THINGS YOU SAID FOR THREE YEARS ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT. THAT IS WHAT THIS IS ABOUT I PROMISE YOU THE NEXT PRESIDENT WILL BE IMPEACHED SET THIS BAR, AND EVERY PRESIDENT IN OUR FUTURE WILL BE IMPEACHED. IT ERODES OUR REPUBLIC, HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, I LOOK FORWARD >> MEMBERS ARE REMINDED TO DIRECT COMMENTS TO THE CHAIR >> RESERVED. IF PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IMPEACHED AND REMOVED, THE NEW PRESIDENT WILL BE MIKE PENCE, NOT HILLARY CLINTON. I NOW YIELD TO THIS DISTINGUISHED GENTILITY GENTLE LADY RECOGNIZE FOR TWO MINUTES

>> I DID NOT HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING BORN INTO THIS COUNTRY MY MOTHER BROUGHT ME FROM ECUADOR LOOKING FOR FREEDOM AND OPPORTUNITY THAT IS NOT MY STORY ALONE, THIS IS A STORY THAT I SHARE WITH SO MANY PEOPLE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. WE HAVE LEFT WHERE BRUTAL DICTATORSHIPS HAVE CHOSEN THEIR POTENTIAL TO BENEFIT THOSE IN POWER, THIS PRESIDENT, ELECTED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HAS VIOLATED HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND VIOLATED THE RULE OF LAW, THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING THAT HE WITHHELD MILITARY AID BY CONGRESS AND LEVERAGED A WHITE HOUSE MEETING TO OBSTRUCT A POLITICAL FAVOR , ACTIVELY SOUGHT FOR AN ELECTION INTERFERENCE TO BENEFIT HIMSELF, IT IS UNDENIABLE THAT HE HAS ABUSED HIS POWER AND OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS, HE PRESENTS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO OUR DEMOCRACY. AS AN IMMIGRANT I STILL GET CHILLS BECAUSE I FEEL SO FORTUNATE TO LIVE IN THIS EXTRAORDINARY COUNTRY. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY LIES IN OUR DEDICATION TO THE RULE OF LAW I WANT MY CHILDREN AND ALL OUR CHILDREN TO FEEL THE SAME WAY WHEN THEY GROW UP, HOWEVER IF WE SIT IDLY BY AS A THREAT BEGINS TO APPEAR IN DEMOCRATIC ELECTIONS, WE IN CONGRESS ABIDE BY OUR OATH TO DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION. THAT IS MY DUTY AS A MEMBER OF THIS BODY AS A MOTHER. YOU I YOU RECOGNIZE FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF. I RISE TODAY IN STRONG OPPOSITION TO THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP TWENTY-ONE YEARS AGO TODAY, I SPOKE IN OPPOSITION OF THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT CLINTON TO CHECK TODAY’S ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT ARE AN ASSAULT ON THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. NO CRIME WAS CHARGED IT IS A CLEAR ABUSE OF POWER BY CONGRESS THAT SETS A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT OF WEAPON ISAAC IMPEACHMENT WEAPON ISAAC IMPEACHMENT CAP TODAY I’M PROUD TO SAY THAT I URGE A NO VOTE ON THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AND I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY TIME AND STRONGLY URGE A NO VOTE >> THE GEMINI YIELD FROM NEW YORK? >> I KNOW OF MINUTES TO THE GENTLE LADY FROM CALIFORNIA >> RECOGNIZE FOR TWO AND A HALF MINUTES >> THE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS EACH TAKE AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION. THE PRESIDENT ABUSED HIS PRESIDENTIAL POWER UP AND CONSTITUTIONAL ORDERS. WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION IN OUR OATH OF OFFICE AND WE HAVE PRESENTED WITH RICK ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS HE THREATENED NATIONAL SECURITY AND UNDERMINED THE INTEGRITY OF THE NEXT ELECTION. WE VOTE AS A RESULT OF THAT EVIDENCE. I HAVE WORKED ON PRESIDENTIAL IMPEACHMENT AS PART OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TWICE BEFORE , THE THIRD TIME BRINGS ME NO JOY. PRESIDENT NIXON ATTEMPTED TO CORRECT AN ELECTION. HIS AGENTS BROKE INTO THE DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS TO GET A LEG UP ON THE ELECTION AND LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP, HE ATTEMPTED TO COVER IT UP AND THEN RESIGNED PRESIDENT TRUMP ABUSED HIS POWER, AND USED A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO DO IT, HE USED MILITARY AID AS A LEVERAGE TO SOLELY BENEFIT HIS CLINICAL CAMPAIGN. WASHINGTON WARNED ABOUT THE WILES OF FOREIGN THE PRESIDENT HAS NOT OFFERED ANY EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY THIS IS GROUNDS FOR RESIDENTIAL IMPEACHMENT, THIS IS A SERIOUS ABUSE OF POWER, THESE ABUSES STRIKE AT THE HEART OF OUR CONSTITUTION

UNCONSTITUTIONAL ABUSE OF POWER, HIGH CRIME AND MISDEMEANORS OUR BUS OR THE GUN. HOW ACCURATE THEY WERE. HERE WE ARE YEARS LATER IS UNPRECEDENTED, A PARTISAN PHASE IMPEACHMENT, BASED ON HEARSAY AND SPECULATION, ROOTED IN DEEP-SEATED HATRED FOR A MAN , NOT ALL, BUT MANY NOWHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION DOES IT SAY PERSONAL DISDAIN IS GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT EARLY ON IT WAS CLAIMED THERE WAS EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN COLLUSION, THERE WASN’T ANY WHEN THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION HOAX COLLAPSED, WE WERE TOLD WE WOULD HEAR FROM A WHISTLEBLOWER ABOUT DETAILS OF A NEFARIOUS CALL BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE, THEN WE FOUND OUT THEY WERE NOT EVEN CALLED. WE WERE TOLD THERE WAS CLEAR EVIDENCE OF QUID PRO QUO FOR PERSONAL GAIN, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOU HAVE MADE ASSUMPTIONS TO COME TO THAT CONCLUSION. THE INDISPUTABLE FACTS OF RECORD DESTROY THEIR CASE. HAVE ALLEGED BRIBERY MAKE VAGUE ACCUSATIONS OF ABUSE OF POWER BECAUSE THEY FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF TREASON OR BRIBERY THE COUNTRY IS NOW DIVIDED IS THAT THE FRAMERS WOULD ABUSE THE GREAT POWERS OF HIS OFFICE LEAVE HIS EYES FOR TWO MINUTES I HATE NO WOMAN OR MAN. TODAY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD RECEIVE CLARITY AND TRUTH THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED CONSTITUTIONAL CRIMES. THE PRESIDENTS CRIMES ARE IMPEACHABLE. JOHN F. KENNEDY SAID IF THIS COUNTRY SHOULD REACH THE POINT THAT ANY MAN WOULD DEFY THE COMMANDS OF OUR COURT AND CONSTITUTION, NO LAW WOULD STAND FREE FROM DOUBT AND NO CITIZEN WOULD BE SAFE FROM HIS NEIGHBORS. THE FACTS ARE FIRST PRESIDENT TRUMP VIOLATED HIS OATH OATH OF OFFICE BY THIS ABOVE NATIONAL INSURANCE INTERESTS, PRESIDENT TRUMP BETRAYED AMERICAN INTERESTS BY WITHHOLDING MONEY FROM A FRAGILE ALLY AGAINST RUSSIA THE PURPOSE OF THE SCHEME WAS TO ENLIST A

FOREIGN COUNTRIES HELP IN THE ELECTION, THESE ACTS ARE CONSTITUTIONAL CRIMES AND ABUSE OF POWER THE PRESIDENT DID ASK FOR A FAVOR. THOSE WERE HIS OWN WORDS. IN THE CALL, NO MENTION OF CORRUPTION, ONLY MENTION OF THE BIDENS HIS INVOLVEMENT IS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER, HIS BEHAVIOR REMAINS A CONTINUING THREAT TO AMERICAN NATIONAL SECURITY ABUSE OF POWER DOES VIOLATE INSTITUTION WHILE HIS ACTIONS TRAY THE NATION WHY DOES THE TRUTH MATTER? BECAUSE IT MATTERS TO THE FARMER, IT MATTERS TO THE WAITRESS, IT MATTERS TO THE STEELWORKER, IT MATTERS TO THE TEACHER, IT MATTERS TO A MOTHER WITH A MILITARY RECRUIT GOING OFF TO WAR. OUR LAWS MUST BE HONORED AND RESPECTED. THE BLOODSHED OF FELLOW AMERICANS CANNOT BE IGNORED, TRAVELED ON OR REJECTED. OUR ACTIONS TODAY MUST BE FOR NO PERSONAL GAIN THE BRIGHT LIGHT OF THIS CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN DIMMED BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS HIS TRUTH, HIS WAY, WE MUST REJECT HIS ABUSE OF POWER BECAUSE THIS IS NOT AMERICA, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.

I YIELD A MINUTE AND HALF >> THE GEMINI IS RECOGNIZED FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF >> THANK YOU, SPEAKER. I RISE IN STRONG OPPOSITION TO THIS POLITICAL CHARADE IF THERE WAS ANY DOUBT THAT THIS INVESTIGATION IS POLITICALLY MOTIVATED, EARLIER THIS MONTH THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE SAID PUBLICLY THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN TRYING TO REMOVE OUR PRESIDENT FROM OFFICE SINCE THE DAY HE GOT ELECTED, SIMPLY BECAUSE IT WAS NOT THE OUTCOME THEY WANTED. ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC COLLEAGUE PUBLICLY ADMITTED THAT THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND THE ACTIONS SAYING IF WE DON’T IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, – – THEY HAVE COME TO A CONCLUSION, AGING WELL FIRST THE CURTAINS WERE DRAWN UP BY THEIR OWN FOCUS GROUPS, DEMOCRAT OF DONORS SERVED AS WITNESSES CRITICS STAFF SERVED AS JUDGE AND JURY. AND THEY STILL CAME UP WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. A WHILE AGO THE SPEAKER PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. WERE ALL, JUSTICE WAS NOT AFFORDED THE PRESIDENT DURING HIS INVESTIGATION, HE WAS DENIED DUE PROCESS WHICH SHOULD BE IN ALL INVESTIGATIONS. THIS PROCESS IS ILLEGAL AND ILLEGITIMATE. WHAT A SHAME, WHAT A SHAME. WITH THAT I RESERVE >> I TO TO THAT GENTLE LADY FROM TEXAS >> I DID NOT COME TO CONGRESS TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT. WHEN HE – – EVEN WHEN HE SEPARATED BABIES FROM THEIR PARENTS AT THE BORDER, EVEN WHEN HE TOOK MONEY FROM OUR TROOPS TO HOLD HIS WALL. NO, I DID NOT CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT. I AM HERE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF MY CONSTITUENTS, YET HERE WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS. IS A FORMER JUDGE, I TOOK MY RESPONSIBILITY SERIOUSLY TO WEIGH THE EVIDENCE AND DETERMINE IF THE PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS WERE IMPEACHABLE. UNFORTUNATELY, THE EVIDENCE LEAVES US WITH NO CHOICE BUT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT. I STAND ON MY OATH THAT I HAVE SWORN, TO THE CONSTITUTION AND THE AMERICAN TODAY I URGE MYCOLLEAGUES TO STAND BY THEIR OATH AS WELL INCLUDING IMPEACHMENT AS A SAFEGUARD TO A CORRUPT PRESIDENT WHOSE MISCONDUCT COULD DESTROY THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF OUR COUNTRY, DONALD J TRUMP ABUSED HIS POWER OBSTRUCTING CONGRESS AND ORDERING GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS NOT TO APPEAR BEFORE US, HE CORRUPTED OUR ELECTIONS WHEN HE ASKS A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO INTERFERE FOR HIS PERSONAL AND POLITICAL GAIN. TODAY, SADLY, I ASK MY COLLEAGUES, WOULD YOU PUT PARTY OVER COUNTRY OR HELP SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY AND VOTE YES ON THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BEFORE YOU TWO HOURS, 22 AND A HALF MINUTES. THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA HALF >> THE GEMINI IS RECOGNIZED FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF

>> THIS IS THE LARGEST, MOST MASSIVE COVER-UP, AND IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS TO COVER ALL OF THIS UP. I WOULD TAKE YOU BACK TO OCTOBER 2015, WHEN BARACK OBAMA SAID HILLARY CLINTON WOULD NEVER TRY TO VIOLATE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. A STATEMENT WAS DELIVERED BY JAMES COMEY, THEY SPENT DEMOCRATIC MONEY AND HILLARY CLINTON MONEY TO PICK UP DIRT ON DONALD TRUMP. THEN JOE BIDEN GOES TO UKRAINE AND MAKES THE STATEMENT, HERE IS A MILLION DOLLARS BUT YOU MUST DO WHAT I TELL YOU TO DO BY THE WAY, JOE BIDEN WAS NOT THE OPPONENT OF DONALD TRUMP IT WAS A 21 DAY PRIMARY. HIS OPPONENTS WERE THE UNDER 20 DEMOCRATS ASSIGN A MOTIVE, CREATE THE DOTS JOE BIDEN WAS DOING EXTORTION OF THE POWER PLAY, AND DONALD TRUMP WAS FOLLOWING THE LAW AND BY THE WAY, THERE WAS A VIOLENT WAR IN UKRAINE HE DOESN’T THINK HE CAN WIN THE ELECTION FAIR AND SQUARE, SO HE WOULD CHEAT. NO, IT IS THE OTHER WAY AROUND THEY BROUGHT THIS CASE, NOVEMBER 9TH, THE DAY AFTER TRUMP WAS ELECTED. YIELD ` >> I YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE GENTLE LADY FROM PENNSYLVANIA >> RECOGNIZED FOR TWO MINUTES >> WORDS MATTER. WE HAVE HEARD MANY WORDS OVER THE COURSE OF LAST WEEK’S. IS STILL WHAT STRIKES ME ARE THE WORDS MISSING FROM MY COLLEAGUES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE, A GAPING HOLE IN THIS CONVERSATION. THE WORDS THEY CANNOT OR WILL NOT MOUTH DEFENDING THE PRESIDENT CONDUCT, CONDUCT THAT VIOLATES CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER. WHEN IS IT EVER RIGHT FOR A PRESIDENT TO COERCE OR IMPART INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS? WHEN IS IT RIGHT TO DENIGRATE A FOREIGN LEADER FOR OUR POLITICAL RIVAL? WHEN IS IT EVER RIGHT TO WITHHOLD CONGRESSIONAL AID TO THAT COUNTRY AT THE EXPENSE OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND OUR VERY OWN? WHEN IS EVER RIGHT FOR A PRESIDENT TO BLOCK A COEQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT? THE ANSWER, OF COURSE, IS NEVER THAT WORD DOES NOT COME FROM THOSE WHO ARE MAKING THE CHOICES, STAND BEHIND A MAN WHOSE BEHAVIOR IS NOT WORTHY WE WILL NOT TOLERATE FOREIGN INTERFERENCE TO ORDER THE COMPLETE DEFIANCE OF A COEQUAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. IN THE END, THE PRESIDENT’S TENURE WILL AND HOURS IS A SOMBER GENERATIONAL DUTY OUR DEMOCRACY AS A MATTER OF MINE IS CLEAR. THANK YOU, MADAM SPEAKER, I YIELD ` >> THANK YOU, MADAM SPEAKER. WE HAVE ALL HAD A PROCESS THAT WE’VE HAD TO DEAL WITH AND WE HAVE FOLLOWED THE FACTS IN ONE BOOK. IT WAS THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE THAT SAID WE CANNOT TRUST THE VOTERS, IT IS TOO DANGEROUS TO LEAVE IT WITH THE VOTERS NEXT YEAR. I YIELD LOOKING AT DOCUMENTS, SITTING THROUGH HEARINGS, YOU KNOW THE CONCLUSION I GOT? THIS IMPEACHMENT IS A TOTAL JOKE AND TOTAL SHAM

NOT ONE OF THEM WAS ABLE TO ESTABLISH BRIBERY, TREASON, OR MISDEMEANORS AS REQUIRED IN THE CONSTITUTION. AND AGAIN, 17 OUT OF 24 DEMOCRAT MATTERS ON JUDICIARY COMMITTEE VOTED ON THIS FLOOR TO MOVE FORWARD ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BEFORE THE PHONE CALL. FIVE OUT OF NINE COMMITTEE DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS DID THE SAME THING THE MAIN PART OF YOUR IMPEACHMENT IS THE CALL, WHY DID YOU VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT PRIOR TO THE CALL? ADAM SCHIFF CLAIMED HE HAS PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA AND THAT TURNED OUT TO BE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, OR INSTRUCTION PLEASE STOP TEARING THE COUNTRY APART. STOP THIS SHAM.

I WILL VOTE IN FAVOR OF IMPEACHMENT >> THE GERMAN YIELDS BACK >> IT IS MY PLEASURE TO YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE GERMAN FROM OHIO >> TODAY IS A SAD DAY IN OUR NATION HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE POISED TO PROVE LONG PARTY LINE VOTES FOR ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BASED ON WHAT JONATHAN TRILLING CALLED WAFER THIN EVIDENCE IMPEACHMENT BECOMES THE NORM RATHER THAN THE EXCEPTION. IMPEACHMENT WAS SUPPOSED BE RARE, THEY SET A HIGH BAR FOR IMPEACHMENT ALLEGED ABUSE OF POWER. THE FIRST ARTICLE IS NOT A HIGH CRIME OR MISDEMEANOR IT WASN’T EVEN A CRIME AND THERE IS NO CONCISE LEGAL DEFINITION OF ABUSE OF POWER. THE MAJORITY PARTY IN THE HOUSE CAN DESIGNATE ANY DISAGREEMENT WITH THE PRESIDENT FROM NOW ON AS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE. THE SECOND ARTICLE ALLEGED OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, WITH ANOTHER DANGEROUS PRECEDENT. IS NOT OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, IT IS A FUNCTIONAL PART OF THE CHECKS AND BALANCES IN THE CONSTITUTION. EVERY GRADE SCHOOL STUDENT IN AMERICA KNOWS BUT HOW STOMACH HURTS DO NOT IF CONGRESS DISAGREED WITH THE

PRESIDENT, IF THEY DON’T AGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT, TAKE IT TO COURT. LET THE GOVERNMENT DECIDE. THE HOUSE HAS NEVER APPROVED EITHER ABUSE OF POWER OR OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS TODAY HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE PURSUING THIS, UNDER WHICH ALL FOUR PRESIDENTS COULD HAVE BEEN IMPEACHED. IF IT SOUNDS ABSURD, MADAM SPEAKER, IT IS BECAUSE IT IS ABSURD, THE PROCESS IS ABSURD. HERE IS WHAT IS NOT ABSURD BUT RATHER FRIGHTENING, HOUSE DEMOCRATS WERE SETTING A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT UNDER WHICH NO FUTURE PRESIDENT WOULD BE IMMUNE TO IMPEACHMENT. FOREVER TARNISHING THE HISTORY OF THIS HOUSE >> GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK? >> AN OFFENSE DOES NOT HAVE TO VIOLATE A CRIMINAL STATUTE TO BE IMPEACHABLE.

HE ASKED THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE TO LAUNCH A PUBLIC INVESTIGATION INTO A POLITICAL RIVAL, MILITARY AID AND OTHER BENEFITS WILL ONLY COME AFTER. THIS IS NOT ABOUT A SINGLE CALL OR TRANSCRIPT, THIS IS A GROUP THAT ORCHESTRATED A PLAN DEMANDING A FOREIGN POWER INTERFERE IN OUR DEMOCRACY PRESIDENT TRUMP BETRAYED HIS OATH OF OFFICE, AND ABUSED HIS POWER OF OFFICE FOR PERSONAL AND POLITICAL GAIN AND COOPERATED WITH A COEQUAL RANCH OF GOVERNMENT, THIS IS SETTING A PRECEDENT FOR ALL FUTURE PRESIDENTS NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.

THEY UNDERMINED NATIONAL SECURITY WE SOMETIMES DISREGARD CONSTITUTIONAL CHECKS AND

BALANCES IS THE INDESTRUCTIBLE UNDERPINNINGS OF OUR DEMOCRACY THE PRESENT DEMONSTRATED THIS BEYOND A DOUBT. APPLYING THE REMEDY THE CONSTITUTION DESCRIBES BECAUSE THE THREATS TO OUR DEMOCRACY ARE REAL AND PRESENT. WITH THIS BUT WE OFFER THAT NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT >> IT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY TROUBLING TO SEE THE PARTISAN AND DIVISIVE WAY THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE CARRIED OUT THIS ENTIRE PROCESS, WE SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED, THOUGH, THEY PROMISED THEY WOULD UNSEAT THIS THIS PRESIDENT SINCE THE DAY HE TOOK OATH OF OFFICE.

HAVE SOUGHT TO AVOID THE TRUTH THEY HAVE DEMEANED AND INSULTED WITNESSES, THE PLANETS WHO PROVIDED EVIDENCE AGAINST THE PRESIDENT NO HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAS JOINED US TO DEMAND THE DOCUMENTS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS REFUSED TO PRODUCE. PRESIDENT TRUMP HIMSELF CAN SET THE PRECEDENT OF HIS OWN TRIAL. REPUBLICANS REFUSED TO SEEK THE TRUTH OR TO WORK WITH US TO PREVENT THIS ONGOING ISSUE IN THE FUTURE, THAT IS THE TRAGEDY OF TODAY’S EVENTS. IN OUR HISTORY, THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS HAVE GONE INTO BATTLE WITHOUT RESERVATION TO FIGHT FOR OUR REPUBLIC AND THEY STILL DO TODAY, MANY HAVE BEEN GRAVELY INJURED AND SOME HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE MY COLLEAGUES WILL NOT SPEAK UP FOR THE RULE OF LAW OREGON’S PRESIDENTIAL ABUSE OF POWER FLOATERS MAY GIVE THEM A PASS BUT HISTORY WILL JUDGE THEM IMPARTIALLY.

PONTIUS PILATE GAVE JESUS THE OPPORTUNITY TO FACE HIS ACCUSERS. HE AFFORDED MORE RIGHTS TO JESUS THAN THE DEMOCRATS HAVE AFFORDED THIS PRESIDENT AND THIS PROCESS >> THE GERMAN FROM NEW YORK. – – THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK THE PRESIDENT HAS ABUSED HIS POWER OF OFFICE. HE HAS BETRAYED PUBLIC TRUST AND UNDERMINED AMERICAN NATIONAL SECURITY, PUT PRESSURE ON A FORWARD BY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL GAIN. AT THIS MOMENT IN OUR HISTORY, THE REMEDY FOR THIS MISCONDUCT IS IMPEACHMENT. I DID NOT COME HERE TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BUT SADLY HIS MISCONDUCT LEAVES US NO CHOICE BUT TO FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION I HAVE TWO GRANDCHILDREN, MY GRANDDAUGHTER CAITLIN IS EIGHT AND MY GRANDSON COLIN IS FOUR YEARS OLD. SOMEDAY THEY WILL ASK ME ABOUT THIS DAY THEY WILL ASK ABOUT THE TIME HE PUT HIMSELF ABOVE THE LAW AND THEY WILL ASK WHAT I DID TO STOP HIM. AND TODAY I VOTE TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT SERVE AT THE PLEASURE OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. A DENIAL OF REALITY, ACKNOWLEDGING UNDER HIS POLICIES, THINGS ARE ACTUALLY GOING MUCH BETTER THAN THEY HAVE IN DECADES, WE ARE A DEMOCRATIC CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, POWER FLOWS FROM WE THE PEOPLE TO OUR PRESIDENT AND ELECTED OFFICIALS THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY THINKS WE ARE ENTITLED TO RULES EVEN IF WE MUST CHANGE THE RULES TO INVALIDATE THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA THAT IS WHY THE ABSENCE OF A CASE DOES NOT MATTER IN THIS CHARADE OF IMPEACHMENT I BELIEVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHARE MY URGENCY ABOUT WHAT IS AT STAKE HERE, MADAME SPEAKER, YOU AND YOUR MAJORITY MAY DECIDE TODAY, BUT I HAVE FAITH IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO DECIDE OTHERWISE NEXT NOVEMBER. THANK YOU, I YIELD BACK. THE CHAIRMAN YIELD BACK. GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK >> YOU NOW HAVE ONE MINUTE >> RECOGNIZED FOR ONE MINUTE >> THANK YOU, MADAME SPEAKER. I RISE TODAY IN SUPPORT OF THIS RESOLUTION. AFTER CAREFULLY REVIEWING ALL OF THE EVIDENCE IN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT BEFORE US, IT IS CLEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP ABUSED THE POWER OF THE PRESIDENCY AND OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS. I DID NOT COME TO THIS CONCLUSION LATELY. IMPEACHMENT IS AN EXTREMELY SERIOUS MATTER. BUT NO PRESIDENT CAN BE ALLOWED TO PRESSURE A FOREIGN COUNTRY FOR PERSONAL AND POLITICAL GAIN, NO PRESIDENT IS ABOVE THE LAW. HIS BEHAVIOR HAS JEOPARDIZED OUR ELECTIONS, PUT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AT RISK, AND PLACES HIS PERSONAL INTERESTS ABOVE THOSE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, HIS OBSTRUCTION HAS PREVENTED THE HOUSE FROM CONDUCTING CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY, OVERSIGHT OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH, BY FAILING TO UPLOAD TO UPHOLD HIS OATH OF OFFICE, WE ARE HAVING TO UPHOLD HOURS. I URGE MY COLLEAGUES TO DO JUST THAT AND DEFEND OUR DEMOCRACY >> AT THIS TIME I YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF >> RECOGNIZED FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF >> THANK YOU, MADAME SPEAKER. I OPPOSE THIS IMPEACHMENT EFFORT

I WILL VOTE NO. I REPRESENT THE FIFTH DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA. THE FOUNDING FATHERS SHAPED THE GREAT COUNTRY WE ARE LIVING IN TODAY. TOM’S JEFFERSON TOM JEFFERSON AND JAMES MADISON ARE NOT AROUND. I DON’T THINK THEY WOULD BE PLEASED TO SEE CONGRESS SUBVERTING THE WILL OF DEMOCRACY BY WITHHOLDING THIS VOTE, INSTEAD OF WASTING TAXPAYER TIME AND MONEY ON THESE INVESTIGATIONS, WE COULD HAVE ASKED THE LEGISLATION TO SECURE THE BORDER, REDUCE STUDENT DEBT, AND SOLVE THE LITANY OF ISSUES AMERICANS EXIT CARABOUT DELAYS FROM DEMOCRATS HAVE MADE OUR DISTRICT SUFFER. DECISIONS THAT LED US TO TODAY’S BOAT, THE NATURE AND THE ENTIRE PROCESS REEKS OF CAREER POLITICIANS THAT PUT POLITICS OVER PEOPLE. IS NOT ELECTED TO TAKE POLITICAL VOTES TO OVERTHROW THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WEAPON’S MOTION IS NOT THE WAY TO SERVE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO ARGUE WITH A PERSON WHO HAS RENOUNCED REASON IS LIKE ADMINISTERING MEDICINE TO THE DEAD >> THE GENTLEMAN YIELDS BACK GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK? >> I WOULD REMIND THE GENTLEMAN THAT THE COST OF HEALTHCARE AND PRESCRIPTION DRUGS HAVE BEEN DRIVEN DOWN, REBUILDING STRUCTURE, TAKING ON CORRUPTION, 80% OF THESE BILLS ARE LANGUISHING ON MITCH MCCONNELL’S DESK >> RECOGNIZED FOR ONE MINUTE >> I THINK THE CHART CHAIRMAN FOR HEALING. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SWEAR A SOLEMN VOTE TO PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC, WE DEFEND LIBERTY AS THE CENTRAL FIGURE, TESTING RESOLVE IS NOT HERE, VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS COORDINATED MURDERS, ELECTION HACKING, PROPAGANDA, THE ENTRAPMENT OF WILLING FOOLS AND GREETING GREEDY UNDERLINGS. PUTTING THEIR OWN SELFISH INTERESTS OVER LIBERTY. AT PUTIN’S DIRECTION, RUSSIA INVADED UKRAINE IN 2014. 14,000 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED. AT VLADIMIR PUTIN’S HAND WITH OVER 2 MILLION DISPLACED. PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS MINIONS AIDED PUTIN, FIRST HASTENING INTERFERENCE IN RUSSIAN AND ELECTIONS AND MORE RECENTLY, WITHHOLDING VITAL AID >> GENTLE LADIES TIME HAS EXPIRED GENTLEMAN RECOGNIZE >> THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN USED TO IMPEACH THE ELECTED PRESIDENT IT IS A MOCKERY OF AMERICAN JUSTICE IS, ACTIONS. THE DECISION WILL BE REGULATED MORE BY THE PARTIES RATHER THAN REAL DEMONSTRATION OF INNOCENCE OR GUILT. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? IT MEANS THAT THE MAJORITY CAN EXERT INFLUENCE REGARDLESS OF JUSTICE. IN THIS STATEMENT, ALEXANDER HAMILTON WARNED US ABOUT THE DANGER OF MOB RULE DEMOCRATS HAVE A CRIMINAL AND HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A CRIME FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS. THIS PRESIDENT HAS NOT COMMITTED A CRIME. THE PRESIDENT HAS A CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION TO ROOT OUT CORRUPTION, THIS IS NOT AN ABUSE OF POWER, IT IS HIS JOB. ONE OF THE ARTICLES IS OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS. THE ONLY THING DISRUPTED IS THIS PRESIDENT’S RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS. I DO NOT BLAME THE PRESIDENT FOR REFUSING TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THIS GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT CIRCUS. IT IS NOT HOW OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FRAMED AMERICAN JUSTICE THIS IS A TRAGIC DAY IN OUR HISTORY. WE HAVE INDIVIDUALS WHO HATE THIS PRESIDENT MORE THAN THEY LOVE

THIS COUNTRY. OUR COUNTRY NEEDS PRAYER AND NOT THIS DESTRUCTIVE PARTISANSHIP >> THE PRESIDENTS OBSTRUCTION IS UNPRECEDENTED AND ALLEGORICAL BLOCKING THIRD PARTIES FROM COMPLYING EVEN IF HE PURSUES HIS OWN INTERESTS IN COURT WHEN CAN THE PRESIDENT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE? IN THE GENTLELADY FROM THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA >> MADAME SPEAKER, MY WORDS ARE MY ONLY REMEDY TODAY. WE EXPECT THE STATEHOOD VOTE TO BE SUCCESSFUL. THE PEOPLE OF DISTRICT OF COLOMBIA HAVE NO VOTE ON IMPEACHMENT OR ANY OTHER MATTER ON THIS FLOOR NOW. I SPOKE ON THIS FLOOR ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT JUMPS IMPEACHMENT LOOKS AT SABOTAGE OF OUR NATIONAL SECURITY TO GET HIMSELF REELECTED. CLINTON REPENTED TRUMP INSISTS THAT HE DID NOTHING WRONG. THAT IS A PROMISE TO CONTINUE HIS LONG PATTERN OF ABUSE OF POWER AND OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS IMPEACHMENT IS OUR ONLY OPTION I YIELD BACK FOR IMPEACHMENT CONSTITUTIONALLY RECOGNIZED PRIVILEGE. PRESIDENTS HAVE ABUSED POWER TO UNDERMINE DEMOCRACY AND ELECTION, BUT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN IMPEACHED PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT USED THE IRS AS A WEAPON OF POLITICAL CAPUCHIN. PRESIDENT JOHN F KENNEDY USED THE FBI TO WIRETAP AND MONITOR MEDICAL OPPONENTS INCLUDING CONGRESSIONAL STAFF AND HE DEPORTED ONE OF HIS MISTRESSES TO AVOID SCANDAL. PRESIDENT JOHNSON SPIED ON THE GOLDWATER CAMPAIGN, TAPPING HIS OPPONENT GOLDWATER’S AIRPLANES AND USING CIA SPIES TO OBTAIN ADVANCED COPIES OF HIS STRATEGIES AND SPEECHES PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA REFUSED TO PROVIDE DOCUMENTS RELATED TO FAST AND FURIOUS, UNANIMOUSLY STRUCK DOWN BY THE SCREEN COURT HE SPIED ON REPORTERS DESPITE THESE CLEAR ABUSES OF POWER THE FRAMERS DID NOT WANT A LOW BAR FOR IMPEACHMENT THEY WANTED CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT TO WORK OUT THEIR DIFFERENCES. WHEN I ASKED IF ANY PRESIDENT COULD AVOID IMPEACHMENT, WITH SUCH A LOW STANDARD, HE SAID NO. I YIELD >> PRESIDENT OBAMA PROVIDED THOUSANDS OF PAGES OF INFORMATION IN A CONGRESSIONAL REQUEST, THEY TESTIFIED. UNLIKE NOW. I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLELADY FROM ILLINOIS >> RECOGNIZED FOR ONE MINUTE >> MADAME SPEAKER, TODAY IS A SOLEMN DAY IN AMERICA, A DAY THAT NONE OF US HOPED FOR WHEN WE CAME TO CONGRESS. THE EVENTS OF TODAY ARE SOMETHING THAT EACH OF US SWORE WE WERE PREPARED TO EXECUTE IN DEFENSE OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. THIS IS THE OATH THAT BINDS THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE 116TH CONGRESS, WE DEFEND HER, A CLEAR AND PRESENT THREAT TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS WHAT BRINGS US HERE, A PRESIDENT THAT ASKED FOR INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTION. THIS IS OUR FOUNDING FATHERS GREATEST FEAR I CAST THE VOTE FOR THOSE WHO ENTRUSTED ME,

THEY ENTRUSTED ME TO UPHOLD OUR CONSTITUTION WITH THEM, I VOTE YES. YES FOR KATHY , AND FOR JIMMY AND PARK FOREST THE PATH FORWARD IS CLEAR, IMPEACHMENT IS NOT AN OPTION, IT IS AN OBLIGATION BECAUSE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. THANK YOU GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA. >> THANK YOU, SPEAKER. IT IS MY PRIVILEGE TO YIELD TWO MINUTES >> THE CHAIRMAN IS RECOGNIZED FOR TWO MINUTES SAY THANK YOU, RANKING MEMBER COLLINS. WE HAD A SAYING, BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT DEMOCRATS ARE TERRIFIED THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING TO WIN THE REELECTION THEY CANNOT BEAT HIM ON THE MERITS, DEMOCRATS ARE CAVING TO THE FAR LEFT RADICAL BASE AND USING THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT UNNAMED BUREAUCRATS, RATHER THAN RELYING ON FACT AND LAW TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT. LET ME BE CLEAR, THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A POLITICAL HIT JOB. I WAS A DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN THE NAVY LET ME TELL YOU, AS A LAWYER, I WOULD DEFEND THIS AND DISMISS THIS ON DAY ONE FOR LACK OF MARRIAGE. I WOULD PROSECUTE ADAM SCHIFF FOR ABUSE OF POWER WHY? W ABOUT THE FACT HE USED HIS POSITION AS CHAIRMAN? HE DUMPED OVER 8000 PAGES OF DOCUMENTS WITHIN 48 HOURS OF A HEARING THAT IS ABUSE OF POWER OBSTRUCTION, I PROSECUTE THE DEMOCRATS FOR OBSTRUCTION. HOW ABOUT THE FACT JUDICIARY DEMOCRATS VOTED DOWN MY REQUEST TO SUBPOENA A WHISTLEBLOWER? W ABOUT THE FACT CHAIRMAN NADLER FUSED EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN REQUEST? THAT IS OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS. AGAIN, LET ME BE CLEAR, TODAY IS NOTHING MORE THAN A POLITICAL JOB THANK YOU, AND I YIELD NOW. >> THE GENTLEMAN YIELDS BACK. >> YOU ARE WATCHING LIVE COVERAGE FROM THE WASHINGTON POST. THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS IN THE MIDST OF SIX HOURS OF INVESTIGATION INTO THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. WE WILL STAY WITH THE DEBATE FOR THE FINAL PROCESS >> EACH OF US HERE TOOK AN OATH TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, NOT THE PRESIDENT AND NOT OUR POLITICAL PARTY. TODAY HISTORY WILL JUDGE IF WE ABIDE THAT OATH, TO EXPLORE EXTORT A FOREIGN COUNTRY, INVESTIGATE A POLITICAL OPPONENT, IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL ABUSE OF POWER, SOLICITING FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN AN AMERICAN ELECTION, UNCONSTITUTIONAL POWER USE, THE NEED TO PROTECT AGAINST JUST SUCH ABUSES DIRECTED POWER TO THIS HOUSE, THE DELICATE BALANCE OF POWER, IT IS THREATENED WHEN A PRESIDENT DISREGARDS THE CONSTITUTION BY OBSTRUCTING THE POWER OF CONGRESS TO COVER UP ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR, PRESIDENT TRUMP VIOLATED HIS OATH. TODAY WE MUST PUT COUNTRY OVER PARTY, TODAY WE MUST ASSERT THAT NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW WE ARE SUMMONED BY HISTORY TO DO THE RIGHT THING I YIELD BACK. >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA. >> I THINK THE SPEAKERS ARE NOT WORKING ON THE MAJORITY SIDEKICK NO PRESSURE, NO CONDITIONALITY NOTHING WAS EVER DENIED WHEN THEY GOT THROUGH.

I YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF >> RECOGNIZED FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF. >> I HAVE HEARD NUMEROUS COLLEAGUES SAY THEY DID NOT VOTE TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, MAYBE NOT ORIGINALLY.

I CAME HERE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND CHANGE BROKEN STATUS QUO, NOT TO DISTRACT OR DISRUPT THOSE LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO DELIVER ON PROMISES OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY THAT KEPT OUR COUNTRY FREE

WE’VE HEARD SPECULATION ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S MOTIVES IN UKRAINE. DESPITE MONTHS OF EFFORT, DOZENS OF HEARINGS AND COUNTLESS DOCUMENTS, AMERICANS HAVE NOT SEEN PROOF THAT THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED HIGH CRIMES OR MISDEMEANORS WE HAVE A REPUBLIC IF WE CAN KEEP IT, THIS IS A DISGRACEFUL AND DISHONEST PROCESS AND A DISCREDIT TO THIS BODY AND THIS NATION. I URGE THE HOUSE TO DROP THESE DIVISIVE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. >> I YIELD BACK GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK. AND HOW MUCH TIME DOES EACH SIDE HAVE LEFT? >> NEW YORK HAS TWO HOURS AND TWO MINUTES. FROM GEORGIA, TWO HOURS AND THREE MINUTES. WAS NOT >> I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLELADY FROM NEW YORK >> THE FACTS ARE CLEAR. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WITHHELD $400 MILLION IN MILITARY AID TO AN ALLY OF THE UNITED STATES AND ALSO HOLDBACK A WHITE HOUSE MEETING TO COMPEL COORDINATION, AND UKRAINE WAS ENGAGED WITH ONE OF AMERICA’S ADVERSARIES. THE PRESIDENT ABUSED HIS POWER TO PERSUADE A FOREIGN NATION TO PICK UP DIRT ON A POLITICAL OPPONENT. THAT IS THE TRUTH. THIS WAS A GEOPOLITICAL SHAKEDOWN. THE PRESIDENT TRIED TO BLOCK CONGRESS FROM EXERCISING CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO THE TRUTH. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US TODAY FACES A DARK CHOICE IF WE CHOOSE TO TURN A BLIND EYE AND PUT EXPEDIENCY TOWARD THE OVER THE CONSTITUTION, WE ARE COMPLICIT. IF WE DO NOT HOLD THIS PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE, WE HAVE FAILED. WE HAVE ABDICATED OUR OWN OATH TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW >> IT IS MY PLEASURE TO YIELD TWO MINUTES TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM ALABAMA >> WE’VE GONE FROM RECEIVING UNSUBSTANTIATED HEARSAY AND DISCREDIT COMPLAINT TO THE ASCENSION PRESENTATION OF ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES NONSENSE ANDREW JOHNSON HAS WE SEEN SUCH A PARTISAN POLITICAL STUNT THIS HOUSE HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A STAR CHAMBER. THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY LITERALLY LOCKED THEMSELVES IN THE BASEMENT OF THIS BUILDING, HIDING FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. MY COLLEAGUES AND I REFUSE TO STAND FOR IT DEMOCRATS MOVED TO PUBLIC HEARINGS, DENIED THOSE QUESTIONS, DENIED US WITNESSES, DENIED THE PRESIDENT ANY MEANINGFUL OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES. WITH THIS COMPLETE ABUSE OF PROCESS, WE’VE SEEN THE FLIMSIEST AND LEGALLY UNSOUND ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT IN THE HISTORY OF THIS ENDED STATES NEVER BEFORE HAS THE HOUSE REPORTED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT THAT DOES NOT ALLEGE A DEFINED CRIME BUT THIS MAJORITY WILL DO SO TODAY READ THE TRANSCRIPTS. THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO, NO VIBRATE, NO EXTORTION, NO CRIME, NO ABUSE OF POWER THEY DO NOT ALLEGE A CRIME IN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. IF THE DEALINGS OF HUNTER BIDEN WERE SO ABOVEBOARD, HE WILL THINK THE MAJORITY WOULD BE JUST FINE FINE TO END THIS MATTER BUT THEY HAVE NOT MOVED MY RESOLUTION ASKING FOR AN INVESTIGATION AND THE SUBPOENAS FOR HUNTER BIDEN HAVE ALL BEEN DENIED HE DOES NOT GET A PASS BECAUSE HIS DAD WAS VICE PRESIDENT. I AM PROUD TO FIGHT AGAINST THE STRAIGHT >> YELLING BACK TO THE GYM AND FROM NEW YORK. >> I YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLELADY FROM WISCONSIN. >> THE GENTLELADY IS RECOGNIZED. >> MADAME SPEAKER, THE FACTS ARE INDEFENSIBLE, THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING, THE PRESIDENT OBSTRUCTED CONGRESS AND JUSTICE REQUIRES THIS IMPEACHMENT. I FEEL COMPELLED TO RESPOND TO THE FALSE NARRATIVE THAT DEMOCRATS ARE USING IN THE PROCESS TO OVERTURN THE ELECTION. I AGREE, THAT

ELECTIONS ARE AN APPROPRIATE VENUE FOR POLICY DISPUTE BUT WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT A POLICY DISPUTE, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A PRESIDENT WHO DID THE EXACT SAME THING OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FEARED AND THE SAME CIRCUMSTANCE THAT THEY DRAFTED THIS IMPEACHMENT CLAUSE OUR CONSTITUTION DESERVES STANDING UP FOR AND I BELIEVE I WILL LEAVE MY COLLEAGUES WITH A LAST THOUGHT AS THEY DECIDE ON THIS HISTORIC VOTE FOR WHAT SHALL A MAN GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD ONLY TO LOSE HIS OWN SOLD ALL HIS OWN SOUL?

I AGREE WITH HER COMMENTS, IMPEACHMENT IS SO DIVISIVE, UNLESS THERE IS SOMETHING SO COMPELLING AND OVERWHELMING AND BIPARTISAN, I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD GO DOWN THAT PATH BECAUSE IT DIVIDES THE NATION. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HAS HAPPENED, WE KNOW HOW THIS RESULT IS GOING TO GO. THE DEMOCRATS ARE VOTING FOR THIS, NOT ONE REPUBLICAN IS BREAKING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTED AND WE BRING SHAME UPON THIS BODY TODAY BY MOVING FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LEAVE EVERYONE SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY UNDER THE LAW NO MATTER WHAT YOUR STATION IN LIFE. FAIR, THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN ANYTHING BUT FAIR. FOR TWO YEARS WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEN CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIANS TO INTERFERE WITH OUR ELECTIONS. MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN THE IN THE INVESTIGATION, IF IT WERE THAT WRONG HE WOULD THINK THAT DEMOCRATS WOULD WORK ON THE POLICY WE WERE SENT HERE TO DO WORK ON NO BRIBERY, NO ABUSE OF POWER, GATHERING INFORMATION ON A POTENTIAL POLITICAL RIVAL. HERE ARE SOME FACTS NUMBER ONE, THE TRANSCRIPT SHOWS NO PRESSURE. PRESIDENT ZELENSKY DID NOT KNOW THAT MONEY WAS WITHHELD, NO INVESTIGATION WAS ANNOUNCED, THE MONEYWAS RELEASED.

THAT IS WRONG AND IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE WHEN CONGRESS EXERCISED OUR DUTY TO RESCUE THESE WRONGDOINGS, HE AND HE OBSTRUCTED THE INVESTIGATION EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, THAT IS ALSO WRONG AND ALSO AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

THAT’S WHERE WE ARE AT TODAY >> I RISE TODAY IN OPPOSITION TO THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP. I BELIEVE ALL AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK IN THE EYE OF OUR REPRESENTATIVE’S. TODAY IS THE

CULMINATION OF A THREE YEAR LONG QUEST TO DIGITALLY DELEGITIMIZE THE PRESIDENT. THIS HAS BEEN IN THE WORKS SINCE 2016, ALL BUT PROMISE WHEN THE DEMOCRATS TOOK BACK THE MAJORITY NO DUE PROCESS, CLOSED-DOOR DEPOSITIONS, EVEN THOUGH NOTHING IN THIS INVESTIGATION WAS CLASSIFIED IF THIS ISN’T PARTISAN POLITICS, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS.

I SAT ON THIS FLOOR AS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS THE PRESIDENT ABUSED HIS POWER WHEN HE USED HIS OFFICIAL OFFICE AND POWER TO ASK A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS. HE ASKED THE FOREIGN GOVERNMENT FOR A PERSONAL FAVOR SO HE COULD CHEAT. THE PRESIDENT GOT CAUGHT, THEN HE TRIED TO COVER IT UP. TODAY WE SAY NO MORE. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PRESIDENT TO ABUSE HIS POWER AND ENDANGER OUR NATIONAL SECURITY >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA >> RECOGNIZE FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF DECK. >> SINCE BEFORE THE INAUGURATION, THE PRESS AND MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESS, MEMBERS REFUSED TO IGNORE THE INAUGURATION. WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE, THEY VOTED FOR IMPEACHMENT, CREATING MANUFACTURING EVIDENCE, RECALLING VOTES OF NO CONFIDENCE ARE NOT INCLUDED FOR NO REASON DEMANDING EVIDENCE OF HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, THERE WOULD BE AN AGREEMENT IN THIS CASE, BUT THERE IS NOT, THERE IS NOT AN AGREEMENT BECAUSE THERE IS NOT EVIDENCE. MADISON HAMILTON WARNED US, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS, BITTERLY AND NAKEDLY PARTISAN MY COLLEAGUES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS HOUSE HAVE MADE A MOCKERY OF THE PROCESS AND THIS GOVERNMENT, THEY DESPISE THE PRESIDENT AND THEMSELVES ARE ABUSING THE POWERS OF HIS OFFICE, ALL TO SETTLE A POLITICAL SCORE THEY WERE UNABLE TO RESOLVE AT THE BALLOT BOX THEY HOPE IF THEY REPEAT THEM OVER AND OVER, YOU WILL BELIEVE THEIR CHARGES. PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS INTERESTED IN GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED TO WORK WITH OUR ATTORNEY GENERAL. THEY GOT THE ASSISTANCE MONEY AND THE MEETING THEY DESIRED.

IT IS UP TO US TO WITHHOLD AND DEFEND UPHOLD AND DEFEND PARAPHRASING THE GREAT WORDS OF LINCOLN, I’M PROUD TO BE THE PARTY THAT WOULD ACCEPT PARTISANSHIP RATHER THAN LET IT PERISH. WE DON’T WANT TO IMPEACH, IT IS BECAUSE WE MUST WHEN YOU VOTE IN A FEW HOURS, DON’T VOTE YOUR PARTY COME ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER. THANK YOU AND I YIELD BACK >> TIME CHECK FOR VOTES >> ONE HOUR 44 AND A HALF MINUTES. JOHN FROM NEW YORK HAS ONE HOUR 47 AND A HALF MINUTES THE GENTLEMAN IS RECOGNIZED FOR A MINUTE AND HALF THIS PROCESS DID NOT BEGIN WITH A WHISTLEBLOWER REPORT THIS BODY IS NOT ACTUALLY PURSUING TO PRESERVE CHECKS AND BALANCES, RATHER THIS PROCESS CALLS THE REFUSAL TO ACCEPT THE 2016 ELECTION RESULTS JUSTIFYING THE REMOVAL OF THE PRESIDENT FROM OFFICE. THE FIRST ARTICLE SUGGEST THAT THE PRESIDENT PRESSURED THE GOVERNMENT, UKRAINE RECEIVED A PREARRANGED AGREEMENT , THE SECOND ARTICLE PROVES THE OBSTRUCTION OCCURRED, OUR FEDERAL COURTS ARE THE ULTIMATE ARBITERS OF THESE DECISIONS THIS IS MINISTRATIONS REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT VOTES CLAIMED EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE.

OF COURSE NOT, THAT IS ABSURD ANY PRESIDENT WHO DOES THAT IS ABUSING THE POWER OF THE PRESIDENCY FOR PERSONAL GAIN. AND UNDERMINING OUR MOST SACRED TRADITIONS. IN A FEW HOURS, EVERY MEMBER WILL MAKE A CHOICE. THE POLITICAL TRAP IS THINKING BLIND PARTISANSHIP IS ALL THAT MATTERS. WE VOTE ON THE CONSTITUTION AND DEMOCRACY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP AT EVERY FUSER FUTURE PRESIDENT WOULD KNOW THAT THEY ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW AND WOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS I HAVE MADE MY CHOICE.

THEY KNOW THAT THEY WOULD VOTE WITHOUT HESITATION TO IMPEACH A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT WHO HAD DONE THESE THINGS. THERE ARE MANY, MANY FACTS THAT HAVE LED TO THIS ARTICLE OF IMPEACHMENT TODAY. FOR THE SAKE OF OUR DEMOCRACY AND CONSTITUTION, AND OUR COUNTRY, WE MUST DO THE RIGHT THING TO VOTE TO IMPEACH >> THE GENTLEMAN LEADS YIELDS BACK.

ARTICLE TWO, SECTION FOUR OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION STATES THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MAY BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR TREASON, FOR BRIBERY, FOR HIGH CRIMES, AND FOR MISDEMEANORS. IS A FORMER PROSECUTOR I AM CONFIDENT THAT NO COURT WOULD ACCEPT THESE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT WITH THE STANDARDS SET FORTH BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. THE IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY ARE BUILT ON HEARSAY AND OPINIONATED TESTIMONY AND SUPPORT NO EVIDENCE OF LAW WRONGDOING ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST A SITTING PRESIDENT, USING CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE THAT FAILS TO PROVE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES. IN ADDITION, THE CHARGES LEVIED LACK HISTORICAL PRECEDENT , AND ARE MOTIVATED BY PURELY POLITICAL REASONING. IF THIS PASSES, DEMOCRATS WILL HAVE SET A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT BY UNDOING AMERICA’S VOTE FOR PRESIDENT BECAUSE A SINGLE PARTY DISAGREED WITH THE 2016 ELECTION RESULTS I URGE MY COLLEAGUES TO VOTE NO AND I YIELD BACK. >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK >> AS SPEAKER I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE EXTENT THAT TO THE DISTINGUISHED OMEN FROM CALIFORNIA. >> I FIND NO PLEASURE COME TO THE FLOOR TODAY CONSIDERING IMPEACHMENT.

DID NOT – – WE – – MY COLLEAGUES ARE TREATED TO SPITE THE PRESIDENT, THEY ARE NOT FREE TO IMPEACH FOR SOMETHING LESS THAN A HIGH CRIME OR MISDEMEANOR IN JUST OVER TEN MONTHS, THE PEOPLE OF OUR REGION DECIDE THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE UPON US. WHEN WILL WE GIVE THE WORLD SOMETHING BETTER THAN THIS? MY COLLEAGUES TALK ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION , WHERE IS RESPECT TO THE CONSTITUTION WHEN THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE HUMANLY REFUSES TO DO WITH ACTUAL JOB? TODAY IN MEXICO A YOUNG GIRL WILL BE ABUSED WHILE BEING TRAFFICKED THROUGH OUR OPEN BORDERS WHILE HERE, THERE ARE RACE POLITICS IN THE NAME OF COMPASSION. A YOUNG MOTHER WILL BE COERCED INTO AN ABORTION AND A FALSE NAME OF CHOICE TODAY ACROSS AMERICA, SOMEONE WILL STRUGGLE TO AFFORD INSULIN TODAY OUR CHILDREN RECEIVE $100 MILLION IN DEBT PER HOUR. IN THIS CONDUCT BY CONGRESS FAILING TO DO ITS JOB, THAT SHOULD BE IMPEACHED. IF AMERICA WOULD BE BETTER OFF TAKING THE FIRST NAMES OUT TO REPRESENT US IN THE HOUSE, TODAY IS NOT A DARK DAY, BECAUSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW THIS, AMERICA IS GREAT, WASHINGTON IS BROKEN, WE ARE TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK. I YIELD BACK. > > THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK? >> MADAME SPEAKER, I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLELADY FROM CALIFORNIA. >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE MINUTE SPEAKER ? >> I RISE TODAY WITH A HEAVY HEART. I CAME TO SERVE THE GREAT PEOPLE OF SAKAMOTO, AND TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE. INCLUDING FOR MY GRANDKIDS THIS IS ABOUT WHO VALUES OUR DEMOCRACY AND CONSTITUTION PRESIDENT TRUMP THREATENED TO WITHHOLD MONEY FOR DIRT ON A POLITICAL RIVAL AND CONTINUE TO VIOLATE OUR SOVEREIGNTY EVEN TODAY, THESE ARE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES AND PRESENT A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO OUR COUNTRY, THAT IS WHY THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO ASK NOW. WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND STOP PRESIDENT TRUMP IMMEDIATELY SO HE CANNOT VIOLATE THE NEXT ELECTION. FOR THE SAKE OF OUR COUNTRY AND DEMOCRACY I WILL VOTE YES TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, AND I YIELD BACK TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA >> RECOGNIZE FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF. >> THANK YOU, MADAME SPEAKER. I RISE TODAY TO ASK MY COLLEAGUES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AISLE, HOW MUCH IS THE TRUST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WORTH? WHEN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THEIR GOVERNMENT, THE PRIMARY TOOL THAT THE CONSTITUTION GIVES TO MAKE A CHANGE IS THE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 8, 2016, AMERICANS FROM EVERY PART OF THIS NATION HACKED THE POLLS PACKS THE POLLS TO ELECT DONALD J TRUMP TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE COMPANY THE COUNTRY WANTED A FIGHTER, A DEALMAKER, SOMEONE WHO WOULD PUT THE COUNTRY FIRST BUT DON’T HAS HAD NO PLAN OR INTEREST IN HONORING THE VOTE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THEY WERE GOING TO ATTEMPT FROM DAY ONE TO DELETE DELEGITIMIZE THIS PRESIDENT AND ULTIMATELY REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE RIGHT AFTER THE PRESIDENT WAS SWORN IN, THE WASHINGTON POST WROTE THAT THE CAMPAIGN TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEGUN. EVEN BEFORE HE TOOK OFFICE, A POLITICAL ARTICLE HEADLINE READ COULD TRUMP BE IMPEACHED SHORTLY AFTER HE TAKES OFFICE? NO. HOUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN PLANNING THIS DAY SINCE JANUARY 2017. IT IS CLEAR THAT FACTS NEVER MATTER TO THE HOUSE DEMOCRATS, THEY NEVER PLANS TO WORK WITH THE PRESIDENT, THEY INTENDED ONLY TO FULFILL A DIVISIVE ARTISAN AGENDA. AGAIN I ASK, HOW MUCH IS THE TRUST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WORTH? AFTER THE VOTES TODAY, WHAT YOU THINK IS A SHORT-TERM ARTISAN GAIN, CAN BE SURE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR TRUST IN OUR INSTITUTION, THEY WILL HAVE LOST TRUST IN CONGRESS THE JAMMIN IS WRECKING EYES FOR ONE MINUTE

SOLEMN DECISIONS COVERS CAN MAKE. I ASKED THAT MY COLLEAGUES DO NOT TAKE THIS LIGHTLY. THE INVESTIGATION AND HEARINGS CONDUCTED BY THE HOUSE PROVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP ABUSED HIS POWER AND ENDANGERED OUR NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO ISSUED A LINK IN ORDER PROHIBITING HIS OFFICE PERSONNEL TESTIFYING, RESPONDING TO SUBPOENAS, OR TURNING OVER DOCUMENTS OBSTRUCTING THE LEGITIMATE CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION OF CONGRESS, THE PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS LEAVE NO CHOICE, PRESIDENT TRUMP VIOLATED HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND NOW I WILL UPHOLD MY OATH OF OFFICE TO PRESERVE AND PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION. AT MY POSS PROMISE TO MY CONSTITUENTS, TO CAREFULLY ANALYZE ALL OF THE ISSUES BEFORE ME. I WILL VOTE IN FAVOR OF BOTH ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST PRESIDENT ALL JUMP TRUMP >> I YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF >> MADAME SPEAKER, I STAND BEFORE YOU TODAY A DISAPPOINTED MAN, I AM DISAPPOINTED IN THIS BROKEN AND PARTISAN PROCESS THAT HAS CONSUMED THE HOUSE DEMOCRATS. WE WERE TOLD THIS INVESTIGATION WAS GOING TO BE PARTISAN AND TRANSPARENT INSTEAD THE PROCEEDINGS WERE HELD IN SECRECY BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, NO ATTEMPT AT A FAIR HEARING, ALL OF THIS WAS DONE DELIBERATELY IN AN EFFORT TO UNDO THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION, MADAME SPEAKER. MY CONSTITUENTS WANT TO SEE US GET TO WORK, THEY WANT US, THEY ARE COUNTING ON US TO LOWER THE COST OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. INSTEAD WE ARE HERE A WEEK BEFORE PRESS FOR CHRISTMAS VOTING TO IMPEACH DONALD J TRUMP. AFTER NOTHING BUT RUMORS WE HAVE WASTED ALMOST A YEAR ON THIS PROCESS.

HE WITHHELD CONGRESSIONALLY APPROVED TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO BLACKMAIL THE NEW YOUNG PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE, UNDER ATTACK FROM RUSSIA. UKRAINE DID NOT FEEL ANY PRESSURE. VLADIMIR PUTIN, PRESIDENT TRUMP FRIEND , HE WITHHELD THAT AID THE AIDE WAS RELEASED, IT WAS NOT RELEASED FOR ANY GOOD PURPOSE, CONGRESS VOTED FOR THAT AID, THE PRESIDENT SIGNED THE BILL, THAT IS ANOTHER IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, AND THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HAS PUT TOGETHER EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTS THAT SHOW THERE IS EVIDENCE OF NUMEROUS OTHER FEDERAL CRIMES INCLUDING BRIBERY AND WIRE FRAUD. THE PRESIDENT’S ACTIONS THREATEN THE CONTINUATION OF REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY >> THANK YOU, MADAME SPEAKER PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS GIVEN SOMETHING TO FIGHT BACK WITH AND THERE WAS NO PRESSURE FROM THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF. NO PRESSURE WAS FELT, WITHOUT A YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF. > > RECOGNIZE FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF >> THIS CHAMBER IS PUSHING THROUGH THE MOST PARTISAN, BASELESS ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT IN OUR HISTORY. HOUSE DEMOCRATS AND THE HYPER PARTISAN IMPEACHMENT HAS BEEN A SHAM SINCE DAY ONE, DRIVEN BY THOSE WITH BITTER RAGE AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT HAS BLINDED BETTER JUDGMENT. THEY RESOLVED TO OVERTURN THE RESULTS OF THE 2016 ELECTION, THE DAY PRESIDENT TRUMP ONE. EARLIER THIS YEAR

SPEAKER PELOSI SAID IMPEACHMENT IS SO DIVISIVE TO THE COUNTRY, UNLESS THERE IS SOMETHING SO COMPELLING AND OVERWHELMING, AND BIPARTISAN, I DO NOT THINK WE SHOULD GO DOWN THAT PATH. NONE OF THOSE STANDARDS HAVE BEEN MET, NOT ONE. THE COMMITTEE HEARINGS WERE SCRIPTED, SUBSTANCE FREE, MADE-FOR-TV SHOWS, IT WOULD BE COMEDY IF IMPEACHMENT WERE NOT SO SERIOUS AND GRAVE. WITNESSES DENIED AWARENESS OF AND IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, BECAUSE THE MAJORITY HAS FAILED IN THE CASE FOR IMPEACHMENT, THERE IS NO BIPARTISANSHIP, COMPELLING, OVERWHELMING, BIPARTISAN SPEAKER PELOSI HAS NOT MET HER OWN CRITERIA FOR IMPEACHMENT BUT HERE WE ARE, DESPITE DEMOCRATS TWEAKING THIS MESSAGE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE REJECTED IT AND I WILL VOTE AND GET AGAINST THIS IMPEACHMENT SHAM ON THIS SAD DAY OF AN IMPEACHMENT CHARADE I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY TIME AND SPEAKER, I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM TEXAS TECH. >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE MINUTE >> MADAME SPEAKER.

I CAME TO CONGRESS TO LOWER THE PRICE COST OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND I DID NOT COME TO CONGRESS TO IMPEACH A SITTING PRESIDENT, BUT WE’VE BEEN GIVEN NO CHOICE, HE HAS ERODED THE FOUNDATIONS OF OUR DEMOCRACY AND USE THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY FOR PERSONAL AND POLITICAL GAIN. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS FEARED ONE DAY THE POWERS OF THE PRESIDENCY WOULD STRETCH BEYOND ITS LIMITS, AND SHROUD THE SYSTEM OF CHECKS AND BALANCES. WE WILL NOT LOWER THE ETHICAL STANDARDS OF OUR PRESIDENCY, WE NOT WE CANNOT AFFORD TO WEATHER LIKE A CHEAP FLOWER IN BAD WEATHER AND WATCH OUR DEMOCRACY CRUMBLE AND WITHER FROM WITHIN. IT IS CERTAINLY NOT THE AMERICA THAT WE WOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS INHERENT. I HAVE SPOKEN TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE NIGHT STATES AND UPHOLD MY OATH TO THE CONSTITUTION, I YIELD BACK. >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NORTH DAKOTA >> I YIELD ONE AND A HALF MINUTES TO MY FRIEND FROM TEXAS >> THROUGHOUT THIS PROCESS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE WARNED ABOUT BUNDLING FOREIGN POLICY DECISIONS ALLEGATIONS OF THESE CRIMES ARE NOT EVEN MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT TODAY, WE HAVE SEEN A RUSHED PROCESS DIVIDE OUR COUNTRY. ACCUSATIONS HAVE BEEN HURLED AT EACH OTHER, QUESTIONING ONE ANOTHER’S INTEGRITY. A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT WILL BE SET IMPEACHMENT BECOMING A WESTERNIZED POLITICAL TOOL WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW? CAN THIS CHAMBER PUT DOWN OUR SWORDS AND GET BACK TO WORK FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? THIS INSTITUTION HAS A FAILED HISTORY OF PASSING LEGISLATION THAT HAS NOT ONLY CHANGED OUR COUNTRY, BUT HAS INSPIRED THE WORLD THIS FEE HAS BEEN POSSIBLE BECAUSE THERE IS ONE PERPETUAL GOAL TO MAKE A MORE PERFECT UNION. WE CONTRIBUTE TO THIS HISTORY, WE RECOGNIZE THE SIMPLE FACT THAT MOORE UNITES OUR COUNTRY THAN WHAT DIVIDES US. TOMORROW WE CAN START FOCUSING ON THAT >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK? >> I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM ILLINOIS. >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE MINUTE. >> THANK YOU. THIS IS A SAD DAY FOR OUR COUNTRY THIS IS A SAD DAY FOR AMERICA IS A GOOD DAY FOR OUR CONSTITUTION. IT IS A SAD DAY FOR OUR COUNTRY, BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP IT IS CLEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP PLACES HIMSELF ABOVE THE LAW ABOUT OUR CONSTITUTION. ABOVE THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. MY LAST TOWN HALL MEETING WAS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15TH. SOMEONE ASKED A QUESTION, WHAT IS OUR POSITION ON IMPEACHMENT? MADAME SPEAKER EVERY PERSON THERE ROSE AND SAID IMPEACHMENT! WHEN I SPEAK, I

SPEAK FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE SEVENTH DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS AND MY VOTE WOULD BE IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH. I YIELD BACK THE BALANCE OF MY TIME >> I YIELD TWO MINUTES TO MY FRIEND FROM TEXAS. >> RECOGNIZE FOR TWO MINUTES. >> THANK YOU. >> IN 1998, SENATOR CHUCK SCHUMER SAID I QUOTE THIS IMPEACHMENT WILL BE USED AS A ROUTINE TOOL TO FIGHT POLITICAL BATTLES. WE THOUGHT IT WAS A PRODUCTION. IT WAS A PROMISE NOW IT IS PLAYING OUT HERE YOU GO. THE IMPEACHMENT SERVES TWO PURPOSES. NUMBER ONE, TO STOP THE INVESTIGATION BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND UKRAINE INTO THE CORRUPTION AND UKRAINIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE UNITED STATES ELECTION IN 2016 YOU SAID THIS WAS ABOUT ALL OF THIS TERRIBLE RUSSIAN COLLUSION, IT IS ABOUT THE MONUMENTS, ROBBERY, EXTORTION, IT HAS CHANGED, ONE THING HASN’T CHANGED, ONE IS THE INTENT TO IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT. IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE LET’S BE HONEST. THE PRESIDENT TURNING HIS BACK ON UKRAINE, THAT HAPPENED IN 2009. IN 2008, UKRAINE INVADED GEORGIA THEY SAID BUSH OVERREACTED. IT WAS A GREEN LIGHT TO RUSSIA TO INVADE UKRAINE BLANKETS AND MARIE’S. THAT IS WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID. THIS IS A TRAVESTY. WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE. CHUCK SCHUMER WAS RIGHT THE BAR IS LOWERED EVEN FURTHER. IT WILL BE USED FOR POLITICAL BALANCE. THIS COUNTRY IS NOW INSIDE, I YIELD BACK. >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK? >> I AM DEEPLY CONCERNED THAT ANY MEMBER OF THE HOUSE WITHOUT RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE. I YIELD A MINUTE TO MR. HIGGINS >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK IS RECOGNIZED FOR ONE MINUTE. >> THANK YOU >> THE HOUSE WILL COME TO ORDER THE HOUSE WILL COME TO ORDER THE GENTLEMAN FROM NEW YORK IS RECOGNIZED FOR ONE MINUTE CAP >> THANK YOU MR. CHAIRMAN AND MADAME SPEAKER. THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION IS EXPLICIT. BRIBERY IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, IT INVOLVES THE ABUSE OF POWER AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ABUSED POWER IN OFFICE BY SOLICITING A BRIBE FROM A FOREIGN LEADER THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE OPENLY ANNOUNCED AN INVESTIGATION INTO A POLITICAL RIVAL. RELEASING $391 MILLION IN MILITARY AID TO GIVE YOU THE WHITE HOUSE MEETING THAT YOU NEED. THIS SOMETHING FOR SOMETHING TRANSACTION BRIBING A FOREIGN LEADER IS ABUSE OF POWER AND FEDERAL CRIME >> THE GENTLEMAN FROM NORTH DAKOTA? >> I YIELD ONE OF THE HALF MINUTES >> RECOGNIZE. >> THANK YOU, MADAME SPEAKER. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO MY REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES MADAME SPEAKER THAT IS A DARN SHAME THAT WE HAVE FOUND OURSELVES IN THIS POSITION TODAY. EVERY TIME I STEP INTO THIS CHAMBER I AM HUMBLED TO BE SERVING IN THE GREATEST LESLIE BODY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. IT IS DEEPLY DISAPPOINTING THAT THE HYPER PARTISANSHIP THAT HAS GRIPPED THIS COUNTRY HAS MADE ITS WAY INTO THIS CHAMBER. I PRIDE MYSELF ON BEING A CONSENSUS BUILDER WHO WORKS ACROSS THE AISLE TO GET THINGS DONE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES TO THE MATTER OF IMPEACHMENT, I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THE ENTIRE PROCESS HAS BEEN POLITICALLY MOTIVATED

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, WHICH IS WHY I WILL VOTE NO. THIS PROCESS HAS BEEN A PLOY TO CIRCUMVENT THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE BY REMOVING A DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. IT IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE. SETS A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT. BUT WE ARE A GREAT NATION AND WE WILL SUPPORT TO SURVIVE THIS INDIGNITY. LET US PUT THIS UGLY CHAPTER BEHIND US AND GET TO WORK >> GENTLEMAN YIELDS BACK, GENTLEMEN FROM NEW YORK. >> I NOW YIELD ONE MINUTE TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM MISSISSIPPI. >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE MINUTE >> THANK YOU, VERY MUCH, MADAME SPEAKER. THE QUESTION THAT WILL BE ANSWERED TODAY, HONORING THE OATH TO OPPOSE THE PETITION, DEMOCRATS NOT SUPPORTING IMPEACHMENT BASED ON POLICY DISAGREEMENT OR ELECTION RESULTS OF 2016, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. THE PRESIDENT MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS IS NOT A HOAX OR A WITCH HUNT. PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST OPPOSES IT. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW, NOT EVEN PRESIDENT TRUMP. THE PRESIDENT ABUSED HIS POWER BY PRESSING UKRAINE TO HELP IN HIS ELECTION CAMPAIGN. IMPEACHMENT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSEQUENCE FOR THIS UNDERMINES THE INTEGRITY OF OUR ELECTIONS. THOSE AGAINST THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY ARE WILLING TO TURN A BLIND EYE, AS A NATION WE HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE WE MUST PROTECT OUR CONSTITUTION IN HIS OWN WORDS, NO INTELLIGENCE PERSON BELIEVES WHAT HE IS SAYING >> GENTLEMAN FROM NORTH DAKOTA? >> I YIELD ONE HALF MINUTES TO THE GENTLEMAN FROM INDIANA >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE AND A HALF MINUTES >> MADAME SPEAKER? THIS PROCESS IS ANOTHER REMINDER THAT MY COLLEAGUES ACROSS THE AISLE ARE MORE FOCUSED ON POLITICS RATHER THAN POLICY. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER WE DESERVE BETTER. THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR MILITARY HAVE FOUGHT FOR THE FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY, YET TODAY MY COLLEAGUES ARE ERODING THOSE FREEDOMS THROUGH THE PROCESS OF ABUSING POWER. THOSE FACTS COULD NOT BE MORE CLEAR, THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED NO CRIME, BROKE NO LAWS, THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO. I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THE RIGHT THING, VOTING AGAINST THIS IMPEACHMENT CHARADE. I STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP AND LOOK FORWARD TO PASSING POLICIES THAT MOVE OUR COUNTRYFORWARD. >> THE GERMAN YIELD BACK >> RECOGNIZE FOR ONE MINUTE >> WE FOUND OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT TRUMP INVITED FOREIGN INTERFERENCE, AND TOOK UNPRECEDENTED EFFORTS TO COVER IT UP. I AM PROUD OF THE COURAGE OF NEW MEMBERS TO DO THEIR DUTY SO THAT THE FIRST TIME IN HIS PRIVILEGED LIFE, DONALD TRUMP WILL BE FINALLY HELD A COUNTABLE FOR HIS RECKLESS PERSONAL BEHAVIOR AND BUSINESS PRACTICES. I PROBABLY VOTE FOR THESE ARTICLES IMPEACHMENT AND I HOPE THE HOUSE MAINTAINS CONTROL, NEGOTIATING BY PROCESS AND WITNESSES, SO THAT THE NEXT STAGE WILL BE OPEN AND FAIR SO THAT DONALD TRUMP WILL ULTIMATELY BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE >> GERMAN RECOGNIZE FOR ONE AND HALF MINUTES >> PUBLIC HEARING BEGAN NOVEMBER 13TH, LESS THAN A MONTH LATER, SPEAKER PELOSI ANNOUNCED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. LET’S

THINK ABOUT THAT, A 22 DAY ELECTION, HEARINGS WERE NOT HAPPENING, THE HOUSE WAS IN RECESS INCLUDING THE WEEK OF THANKS GIVING. THE 22 DAYS, SEVEN DAYS WERE USED TO INVESTIGATE AND VOTE ON THE IMPEACHMENT, NO WONDER OUR CONSTITUENTS ARE UPSET. SEVEN DAYS NO FACTS IN SUPPORT OF IMPEACHMENT. ALL I LEARNED IS THAT IF YOU HATE SOMEONE SO STRONGLY, AND IF PEOPLE AGREE WITH YOU, THAT IS GROUNDS TO BE IMPEACHED WE ASKED FOR 12 HOURS IN THE DEBATE. TWELVE HOURS OF DEBATE IS IT ASKING TOO MUCH? IT IS OKAY TO RUSH THE PROCESS TO GET IT OUT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. MY CONSTITUENTS SAY WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO ALLOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN. I YIELD BACK >> I YIELD MY TIME. THE GERMAN FROM GEORGIA HAS A TIMELINE ABOUT THE CLOCK ON THE CALENDAR, THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE CLOCK AND THE CALENDAR IT IS ABOUT CORRUPTION TO THE CONSTITUTION, IT IS ABOUT A PRESIDENT WHO ABUSE HIS POWER TO INTERVENE IN OUR ELECTION, AND POSES CONTINUING THREATS TO THE INTEGRITY OF OUR NEXT ELECTION. HIS DEFENSE OF IS BUILT ON THREE PILLARS AND WHEN THEY FALL, THE ENTIRE DEFENSE OF THE PRESIDENT COLLAPSES. FIRST THEY CLAIM NO QUID PRO QUO, WELL THE EVIDENCE IS UNDISPUTED, PRESIDENT TRUMP SOLICITED MILITARY AID, AND ESTHER WILLIAM TAYLOR SAID I THINK IT IS CRAZY TO WITHHOLD THIS FOR THE POLITICAL CAMPAIGN. AND IT WAS ASKED IF THERE HAD BEEN A QUICK QUOTE QUID PRO QUO, AND THE RESPONSE WAS WE DO THAT ALL THE TIME, GET OVER IT. THERE WAS A PERSONAL POLITICAL FAVOR, AND THE FIRST OFFENSE FALLS. SECOND THE MINORITY CLAIMS THEY DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE HOLD, THE EVIDENCE IS AGAIN DISPUTED LAURA COOPER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, ON JULY 25TH, THE STATE DEPARTMENT SENT E-MAILS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE NOTIFYING THEM THAT UKRAINIAN OFFICIALS , THE UKRAINIANS UNDERSTOOD EXACTLY WHAT WAS ADDRESSED. HE WANTED A PERSONAL POLITICAL FAVOR BEFORE THE AIDE WAS RELEASED. SO THE SECOND OFFENSE FALLS. FINALLY THE AIDE WAS RELEASED. ONLY AFTER THE PRESIDENT GOT CAUGHT. THE HOLD ON IT WAS LIFTED. THIS IS NOT EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE, THIS IS EVIDENCE OF CULPABILITY. THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING. HE WANTED TO PREVENT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LEARNING THE TRUTH ABOUT HIS ACTIONS, BY ORDERING THAT REQUESTS FOR DEMANDS FOR INFORMATION BE DENIED. WE MUST ACT, NOT BECAUSE OF THE CLOCK, BUT TO FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION AND CONTINUED SELF-GOVERNANCE. I RESERVE MY TIME >> I WOULD JUST POINT OUT YOU HAVE TO ALSO BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR AND WITH THAT I YIELD ONE AND A HALF MINUTES >> YOUR MINDS ARE ALREADY MADE UP. THE DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY HAS THE VERDICT OF IMPEACHMENT. >> THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS IN THE MIDDLE OF DEBATE ABOUT THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT SOON THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE WILL BEGIN THREE HOURS OF DEBATE. COMING UP YOU WILL HEAR FROM ADAM SCHIFF AND DEVON I’M

JOINED BY AMBER PHILLIPS AFTER A BRIEF HIATUS FROM THE FLOOR, WHAT ARE YOU NOTICING SO FAR? THE TONE IS SOMBER AND SERIOUS. THERE IS ALSO PARTISAN ANIMUS REALLY DEFINING THIS IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. LET ME START WITH THE PUBLIC INSIDE THERE IS A LOT OF NUANCE TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. I HEAR A LOT OF HYPERBOLE IN THESE SPEECHES, THEY POINT OUT THAT HE IS NOT ACCUSED OF ANY SPECIFIC CRIME BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE TO BE IMPEACHED THEY ARGUE THAT DUNCAN’S HAVE IT OUT FOR TRUMP AND HE HIM. JUST SAID THAT THE END OF THIS COUNTRY IS NOW INSIDE. THERE IS A LOT OF THAT GOING ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE AND ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE, THEY ARE TRYING TO AFTER THAT. CONGRESSMAN JERRY NADLER NADLER TRIED TO FACT CHECK REPUBLICANS IN REAL TIME. AT ONE POINT HE SAID THE OTHER SIDE IS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST TRUMP. SAYING THEY CANNOT ARTICULATE THESE ACTIONS, I SEE A LOT OF DEMOCRATS TRYING TO DIRECT COMMENTS TOWARD REPUBLICANS, KNOWING THAT THEY WON’T CHANGE THEIR MINDS. DON’T VOTE YOUR PARTY BUT YOUR CHARACTER, THERE ARE A LOT OF EMOTIONAL TESTS. >> HE SAID I’M DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA ON THE FLOOR. LET’S GO TO ADAM SCHIFF SO I WANT TO THANK HIM FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY JOB THAT HE HAS DONE. MADAM SPEAKER, MY COLLEAGUES, I RISE TO SUPPORT THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP. WHEN A MAN UNPRINCIPLED AND PRIVATE LIFE, DESPERATE IN HIS FORTUNE, POSSESSED OF CONSIDERABLE TALENTS, DESPOTIC AND HIS ORDINARY DEMEANOR, KNOWING TO HAVE AS ENSCONCED THE POSSIBLES OF LIBERTY, TO JOIN IN THE CRY OF DANGER TO LIBERTY AND TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY EMBARRASSING THE ELEMENT AND BRINGING IT UNDER SUSPICION, TO FLATTER AND FALL AND CALL IT THE NONSENSE OF THE ZEALOTS OF THE DAY, HIS OBJECT IS TO THROW INTO CONFUSION THAT HE MAY RISE WITH THE STORM AND DIRECT THE WHIRLWIND, THIS IS THE WORD OF ALEXANDER HAMILTON WRITTEN IN 1792 WE FIND A PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF PRESENT DANGER EMANATING FROM 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE. THE FRAMERS DRAFTED A CONSTITUTION THAT CONTEMPLATED FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST PROFITS OF THE LAND, AND ALSO AFFORDED THE CONGRESS THAT THE POWER TO REMOVE THE PRESIDENT , WHO ABUSE THE POWERS OF HIS OFFICE FOR PERSONAL GAIN, COMPROMISE THE PUBLIC TRUST BY BETRAYING OUR NATIONS SECURITY, SOUGHT TO UNDERMINE OUR CREDIT SYSTEM IN THE CONDUCT OF OUR ELECTIONS, I WOULD SAY THE FOUNDERS COULD HAVE IMAGINED THAT THE SINGLE PRESIDENT COULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THESE THINGS EXCEPT THAT THE EVIDENCE HAS SADLY PROVEN THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAS DONE. HOUSTON PREDICTED THE RISE OF DONALD TRUMP WITH STAGGERING PRESCIENCE. THE FREEDOM OF THE KING, THE DRAFTERS OF OUR CONSTITUTION DESIGNED A GOVERNMENT WITH AMBITION MADE TO CHECK AMBITION IN WHICH NO BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT WITH DOMINATE OVER ANOTHER AND NO MAN WOULD BE ALLOWED TO BE ABOVE THE LAW, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT, ESPECIALLY THE PRESIDENT, WITH WHOM WAS THE DANGER BE GREATER THEN WITH THE OFFICER CHARGED WITH BEING COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF? OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST THREE MONTHS, WE HAVE FOUND EVIDENCE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP USED HIS POWER BY PRESSURING THE NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE TO ANNOUNCE AN INVESTIGATION INTO HIS POLITICAL RIVAL JOE BIDEN , WITH THE HOPES OF DEFEATING MISTER BIDEN IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND ENHANCING HIS OWN PROSPECT FOR REELECTION. HE DIDN’T EVEN NEED THE INVESTIGATION TO BE UNDERTAKEN JUST SIMPLY ANNOUNCED TO THE

PUBLIC. A SMEAR, TO SMEAR HIS OPPONENT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO EFFECTUATE THIS THEME, PRESIDENT TRUMP WITHHELD OFFICIAL ACTS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE TO OUR NATION, THE PRESIDENT WITHHELD A WHITE HOUSE MEETING UKRAINE DESPERATELY SOUGHT, AND MORE PERNICIOUS LAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP SUSPENDED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN MILITARY AID TO PROVE THIS CONGRESS WOULD COURSE UKRAINE INTO THIS DOING HIS DIRTY WORK. SACRIFICING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, BY WITHHOLDING SUPPORT FOR A CRITICAL STRATEGIC PARTNER AT WAR, IN ORDER TO PROVE HIS REELECTION PROSPECTS. BUT FOR THE COURAGE OF SOMEONE WILLING TO BLOW THE WHISTLE, HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH IT, INSTEAD, HE GOT CAUGHT. HE TRIED TO CHEAT AND HE GOT CAUGHT THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME AS A CANDIDATE IN 2016, DONALD TRUMP INVITED RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN HIS CAMPAIGN, SAYING IN HIS CAMPAIGN RALLY RUSSIA IF YOU ARE LISTENING, I HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO FIND THE 30,000 E-MAILS THAT ARE MISSING. A CLEAR INVITATION TO HACK HER E-MAILS JUST FIVE HOURS LATER, RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT HACKERS TRY TO DO EXACTLY THAT. WHAT FOLLOWED WAS AN IMMENSE RUSSIAN HACKING ATTEMPT OPERATION AT A SOCIAL MEDIA DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN DESIGNED TO ELECT PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP NOT ONLY DID HE WELCOME THE EFFORT, BUT HE MADE FULL USE OF IT, BUILDING IT INTO HIS CAMPAIGN PLAN AND MESSAGING STRATEGY, AND THEN HIS OPS TO COVER IT UP. THIS ATTEMPT TO INTERFERE IN OUR ELECTIONS, IT DID NOT DETER PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT EMPOWERED HIM. SWEEPING AND SYSTEMIC EFFORTS TO INFLUENCE THE OUTCOME OF OUR LAST ELECTION, THE DAY AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVED THAT THE INVESTIGATION INTO HIS FIRST ELECTORAL MISCONDUCT HAD COME TO AN END, THE PRESIDENT WAS BACK URGING UKRAINE TO HELP HIM CHEAT IN ANOTHER ELECTION. THREE CONSECUTIVE DAYS LIE, THEY TELL SO MUCH OF THE STORY. THREE CONSECUTIVE DAYS IN JULY OF 2019 JULY 24TH, THE DAY THAT SPECIAL COUNSEL MUELLER TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS, AND PRESIDENT TRUMP THOUGHT HE WAS FINALLY IN THE CLEAR, JULY 25TH, THE DAY PRESIDENT TRUMP GOT ON THE PHONE WITH UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT, WITH CONTEXT OF THE DISCUSSION, SAYING I WOULD LIKE YOU TO DO US A FAVOR. ASKED UKRAINE TO DO INVESTIGATIONS TO HELP HIS INVESTIGATION EFFORTS IN 2020 THAT WAS JULY 27TH. THEN WE COME TO JULY 26TH, THE DAY GORDON SONDLAND CALLED PRESIDENT TRUMP ON HIS CELL PHONE FROM A RESTAURANT IN UKRAINE. GORDON SONDLAND, A MILLION DOLLAR DONOR, HIS HAND-PICKED AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN UNION. WHAT DOES PRESIDENT TRUMP ASK OF GORDON SONDLAND THE DAY AFTER THIS CALL? WHAT DOES PRESIDENT TRUMP ASK ? WHAT DOES THE PRESIDENT WANT TO KNOW? DID HE ASK ABOUT UKRAINE’S EFFORTS TO BATTLE CORRUPTION? OF COURSE NOT DID HE ASK HOW THE WAR WITH RUSSIA WAS GOING? NOT A CHANCE. ON THE PHONE, LOUD ENOUGH FOR OTHERS TO HEAR, HE ASKED SO, HE’S GOING TO DO THE INVESTIGATION? THE ANSWER WAS CLEAR, HE ASSURED TRUMP THAT THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT WAS GOING TO DO IT AND THAT HE WOULD DO ANYTHING THAT YOU ASKED HIM TO IF THAT WAS NOT TELLING ENOUGH, MY COLLEAGUES, IN A CONVERSATION THAT FOLLOWED, UN-AMERICAN ASKED IF IT WAS TRUE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP NOT GIVE A BLANK ABOUT UKRAINE, HE AGREED, SAYING THE PRESIDENT ONLY CARED ABOUT BIG STUFF. THE DIPLOMAT NOTED THAT

THERE WAS BIG STUFF IN UKRAINE, LIKE A WAR WITH RUSSIA SANDLIN REPLIED IF THE PRESIDENT CARED ONLY ABOUT BIG STUFF THAT BENEFITS HIM PERSONALLY, LIKE THE BIDEN INVESTIGATION THAT RUDY GIULIANI WAS PUSHING IN THAT SHORT CONVERSATION, WE LEARNED EVERYTHING THAT WE NEEDED TO KNOW ABOUT THE 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT UKRAINE, OR THE IMPACT ON OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, CAUSED BY WITHHOLDING MILITARY AID TO DEATH COUNTRY ALL THAT MATTERS TO THIS PRESIDENT IS WHAT AFFECTS HIM PERSONALLY, AN INVESTIGATION INTO HIS POLITICAL RIVAL, AND A CHANCE TO CHEAT IN THE NEXT ELECTION AS THE PROFESSOR TESTIFIED TWO WEEKS AGO, IF WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS NOT IMPEACHABLE, THEN NOTHING IS IMPEACHABLE EVEN AS THIS BODY UNCOVERS THE FACTS OF THIS UKRAINIAN SCHEME, EVEN AS WE OPEN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AND EVEN AS WE GATHERED EVIDENCE, PRESIDENT TRUMP CONTINUED EFFORTS TO SEEK FOREIGN HELP IN THE NEXT ELECTION I WOULD THINK, HE SAID FROM THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN ON OCTOBER 3RD, IF THEY ARE BEING HONEST ABOUT IT, THEY WOULD START A MAJOR INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDEN’S IS A VERY SIMPLE ANSWER, HE SAID. HE MADE IT CLEAR IN AN OPEN INVITATION TO OTHER NATIONS AS WELL, SAYING CHINA SHOULD START AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDEN’S AS WELL. PRESIDENT TRUMP SENT HIS CHIEF OF STAFF TO THE WHITE HOUSE PODIUM AND TOLD THE WORLD OF COURSE THEY HAVE LINKED AID TO INVESTIGATIONS AND THAT WE SHOULD JUST GET OVER IT EVEN AS THESE ARTICLES HAVE MADE THEIR WAY TO THIS HOUSE FLOOR, THE PRESIDENT’S PERSONAL ATTORNEY HAS CONTINUED TO PURSUE THEM INVESTIGATIONS ON THE BEHALF OF HIS CLIENT, THE PRESIDENT. PRESIDENT AND HIS MEN PLOT ON AND THE DANGER PERSISTS, THE RISK IS REAL, OUR DEMOCRACY IS AT PERIL. WE ARE NOT WITHOUT A REMEDY PRESCRIBED BY THE FOUNDERS FOR JUST THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. IMPEACHMENT. TH E ONLY QUESTION IS, WILL WE USE IT OR HAVE WE FALLEN PREY TO ANOTHER EVIL THAT THE FOUNDERS FOREWARNED, THE ELEVATION OF PARTY OVER COUNTRY MANY OF MAKE MY COLLEAGUES APPEAR TO HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICES TO PROTECT THE PRESIDENT AND ENABLE HIM TO BE A LOVE ABOVE THE LAW, AS LONG AS HE SERVES THEIR PARTY IN POWER. THEY HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICE, THEY HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICE, TO EMPOWER HIM AND ANY OTHER PRESIDENT THAT FOLLOWS TO BE CORRUPT, NEGLIGENT, ABUSE OF POWER AS THEY CHOOSE, THEY HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICE AND I BELIEVE THEY WILL RUE THE DAY THAT THEY DID WHEN DONALD TRUMP WAS SWORN IN, HE REPEATED THESE WORDS. I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT I WILL FAITHFULLY EXECUTE THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND WILL PRESERVE, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. HAS HE CONDUCTED THAT SACRED INVESTIGATION? HAS HE HONORED THE OATH OF OFFICE? HA S HE PRESERVED, PROTECTED, AND DEFENDED THE CONSTITUTION? A SIMPLE YET TRAGIC ANSWER, HE HAS NOT. IN AMERICA, NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. DONALD J TRUMP SACRIFICED NATIONAL SECURITY TO COMPETE IN THE ELECTION, FOR THAT AND HIS CONTINUED EFFORTS TO SEEK INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS, HE MUST BE IMPEACHED I RESERVE THE BALANCE OF MY

TIME >> IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE YOU OR THE WHISTLEBLOWER HERE. I THINK WE ARE CONTINUING TO NEGLECT KEY FACTS IN THIS THE TRANSFER IS OUT OF EVERYBODY CAN READ IT, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN READ IT. NO CONTEST – – THE PRINCIPAL NOT CALL, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND PRESIDENT ZELENSKY SAID THERE IS NO PRESSURE. ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS. NO PRESSURE, BRIBERY, QUID PRO QUO. THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT GOT THE MONEY. WITH THAT I WOULD YIELD. I WOULD YIELD A MINUTE AND A HALF OF MY TIME.’S AND RECOGNIZE FOR A MINUTE AND A HALF. THANK YOU, MADAM SPEAKER REICH COME FROM A STATE THAT – – YOUR FROTHY ELOQUENCE NEVER NEITHER CONVINCES OR SATISFIES ME I AM FROM THE SHOW ME STATE YOU HAVE TO SHOW ME THE ONLY THING YOU WILL HAVE SHOWN SO FAR IS THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO IMPEACH A DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT WHO HAS DONE NOTHING WRONG. DEMOCRATS ARE NOT IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT, BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED OF A REPUBLIC FOR A CRIME, THEY FEAR HIS POLICIES AND HOW WELL THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ONE OF MY COLLEAGUES IS QUOTED SAYING I AM CONCERNED IF WE DON’T IMPEACH HIM, HE WILL GET REELECTED THIS KIND OF RHETORIC IS DISCUSSING HIS DISGUSTING IMPEACHMENT IS NOT A POLITICAL ELECTION. YOU CANNOT UNDO THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION SIMPLY BECAUSE YOUR FLAWED CANDIDATE DID NOT WIN, THANK GOD SHE DIDN’T OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS, UNEMPLOYMENT HAS DROPPED TO THE LOWEST POINT IN GENERATIONS WE ARE SEEING BETTER TRADE AGREEMENTS WITH TRADE PARTNERS AND RECORD NUMBERS FOR TAXES AND STIMULATION ALL THINGS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S LEADERSHIP AND COMMITMENT DEMOCRATS HAVE INTRODUCED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, WE SHOULDN’T BE SURPRISED DEMOCRATS HAVE INTRODUCED ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT IN FIVE OUT OF SIX REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS. DEMOCRATS ARE THE PARTY OF IMPEACHMENT >> THANK YOU, MADAM SPEAKER >> DONALD TRUMP IS USING THE PRESIDENCY TO PUT HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN ABOVE OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS USING OUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO CHEAT THE NEXT ELECTION, JEOPARDIZING NATIONAL SECURITY AND INTEGRITY OF THE NEXT ELECTION. WHO SENT HIS PERSONAL LAWYER TO UKRAINE TO INVESTIGATE A POLITICAL RIVAL FLEX WHO FIRED THE INVESTOR THAT STOOD IN HIS WAY? WHO SOLICITED THE WHITE HOUSE MEETING THAT ONLY BENEFITED HIM AND NOT OUR NATIONAL INTERESTS? CUT OFF MILITARY AID TO AN ALLY THAT DESPERATELY NEEDED WHO PRESSURED PRESIDENT ZELENSKY TO INVESTIGATE HIS RIVAL, AND NOT ONLY PRESIDENT ZELENSKY BUT ALSO CHINA. WHO IS STILL TODAY SENDING HIS PERSONAL LAWYER TO RECURRENT TO UKRAINE TO DIG UP DIRT AND RIG AN ELECTION? THE ANSWER TO THIS IS PRESIDENT TRUMP. WE KNOW HOW TO STOP IT THIS INVESTIGATION SHOWED HOW CORRUPT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THEY HAVE USED THEIR COURAGE TO

EXTINGUISH CORRUPTION ACROSS THE WORLD AND WHITE HOUSE. MY COLLEAGUE ARGUED NO HARM, NO FOUL. TRUMP CHEATED. UKRAINE GOT THE EIGHT STANDING UP WORKS. NOW IS THE TIME TO SUMMON THE COURAGE OF THOSE PATRIOTS AND THE COURAGE THEY SHOULD AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. IF THEY CAN RISK CAREERS AND LIVES TO DO THE RIGHT THING, CAN MY COLLEAGUES ALSO DO THE SAME?

I HAVE BEEN LEFT NO CHOICE, I AM IN SHOCK AND ALL, AS WITNESS AFTER WITNESS CAME FORWARD, THIS STORY PICKING A CLEAR PICTURE OF PRESIDENTIAL ABUSE OF POWER TESTIFYING DIRECT ORDERS TO WITHHOLD VITAL AID IN EXCHANGE FOR INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDENS ALL OF THE MILITARY AID HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED AND THERE STILL HAS BEEN NO WHITE HOUSE MEETING THE BOTTOM LINE IS CLEAR, PRESIDENT TRUMP ENDANGERED OUR NATIONAL SECURITY FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL POLITICAL GAIN.
