Chris Cuomo Can't Stop LAUGHING at Trump’s STUPID CLAIMS “I Never Had a Glass of Alcohol”

I think I see the president's point on this one look at this American wine bottle that I found on see it freedom I told you you only need to look at it to know that it is better than French wine I did you're not gonna find a French wine and with this late I love he did yeah he was funny I like that I don't even drink wine but I preferred I like the waist look and he said it with knowing it was kind of funny that he was saying it I give him props on that one I don't remember it's not whether you win or lose it's whether you win yes thank you the game from the game have a good weekend okay hi I'm Chris Cuomo welcome to prime time on a Friday night an impeachment inquiry already in effect under way according to the House Judiciary chair did you know that did you know that it's happening what when did they announce what actually changed what is going on here if a major step has been taken toward impeachment I don't think come out and say it we're gonna ask a member of the judiciary tonight we also have a lawmaker on the all-powerful tax committee here as Democrats step up their fight for the president's finances his panel is now trawling Trump with proof that Nixon was more law-abiding to Congress than he and twenty twenty Democrats are taking their fight to one of the nation's most crucial voting blocks four days out from the CNN debates a great debate on who's winning who's losing with african-american voters happy Friday grab a beverage let's get after all right what's the latest tally on impeachment 101 House Democrats say yes impeachment inquiry but I don't know why I'm counting anymore but because it seems that the judiciary chair said no reason account I got a secret for you just saying there's no difference between what you're doing now in an impeachment inquiry correct in fact mono Roger spot-on in effect they are already having an impeachment inquiry really that was Jerry Nadler obviously his committee would be the right home for it but here's where it gets a little bit more complicated in court today here's what they said articles of impeachment are under consideration they're suing for Muller's underlying evidence the grand jury testimony usually stays secret you need a compelling interest for it so how is the president handling all of this taking it in stride he says it's not a big deal we should get on with bigger issues listen we want to find out what happened with the last Democrat president let's look into Obama the way they've looked at me from day one they've looked into everything that we've done they could look into the book deal that President Obama made let's subpoena all of his records two quick points one if you want to argue that what was done to you was wrong and overreaching why would you argue doing the same to someone else that's a point of hypocrisy – you are the man mr. president who started the birther campaign against President Obama we have never seen a more wrongful or pernicious attack in the name of investigating a presidential candidate let alone a sitting president so let's discuss what matters in this moment judiciary and Intel committee member Val Demmings made some big headlines and deservedly so with some of the answers that she elicited from Robert Muller good to have you on prime time congresswoman welcome Chris is great to be here thank you for having me all right so help me understand is there an impeachment inquiry ongoing and if so why were you guys entertaining all of this pushing about when you're going to start it well that's a fair question Chris look I believe the Chairman use the term impeachment investigation we are trying to get the underlying evidence to support filing articles of impeachment just like you would in any criminal investigation that is the job that is the right you could you could know who the let's say the suspect is but if that person committed murder you want to also recover that weapon even if you had the supporting testimony we need all of the evidence to support filing articles of impeachment action yeah and so chairman adler and you heard also was speaker Pelosi had to say today we're gonna do this we're gonna do it right and I tell you what looking at the numbers of our members although the decision to file articles of impeachment rests solely with the Judiciary Committee you've seen more members from the House Democratic members at least have come out in favor I think we're exactly where we hope to be at this point I hear it look and I'm not a gotcha guy but I'm just saying that your advantage here or what you want as a perceived advantage is being straight with the American people because the argument that you guys are saying you can make is that the president wasn't straight with the American people that's why I'm coming at this because you got Pelosi saying hey look we're gonna do this the right way and we'll go into impeachment mode exactly when we have to not one day sooner and they have Nadler saying we're already in it and an impeachment inquiry uh you know look we're as we've seen in the two previous impeachment I don't need to tell you this you're a student of the game with Nixon and Clinton you had the house vote to start the inquiry then you went into the committee in the judiciary and you worked up the investigation to see if you could bring charges articles if again are you just trying to avoid that vote here because it would be a tough whip at this point no in the past the house vote did move forward but understand Chris that the House vote is not necessary to begin to follow it's not necessary your hundred-percent that yeah and so let's let's look at what we do have we had the man special counsel robert muller come in and confirm really what i already knew and everyone who had read the report but we do know the American people are just too busy to sit down and read a 488 page he said Russia interfere with our election and a sweepin his systematic way the president knew it the president welcomed it the president or his campaign leaders coordinated with Russia with poorly data and other things that the president engaged in numerous incidences of obstruction of justice and the special counsel could not clear the president of wrongdoing right but on the intelligence side Russian interference is a no brainer for everybody but the president he's only denying it for political purposes but there was no criminal activity no criminal coordination no criminal conspiracy that's what they mean when they say collusion although that's not a legal term I would argue there was collusion as a behavior there was sneaky behavior and they knew it was sneaky that's why they lied about it but not a crime on the obstruction side you get a complicated game and I think that's why congresswoman you have the poll numbers that you do where you don't have fifty percent of this country saying impeach because it seems muddy and if it's not going to be a clear and convincing situation then why not just hash it out in an election well in Chris remember when articles of impeachment were filed against President Nixon only 19 percent of the American people are in favor we have a job to do and look I didn't come to Congress I've been a police chief 27 years law enforcement I didn't come to Congress to not take care of my responsibilities we have a direct responsibility to show the American People that nobody nobody is above the law up to and including the President of the United States just shot on our charity game this is not a popularity game this is about us doing our job we understand it do I totally get that one fair point a push back with Nixon you didn't have the preceding year and a half plus of coverage in the Mulla probe that people were getting read into an understanding and all the reporting you know that only happened with the public hearings so they only got that first exposure to it and that's why you saw such a jump in public opinion because they learned a lot of things and they also had an actual felony they had smoking gun tapes in that it was different in terms of what we're dealing with now so I don't know I mean I hear what you're saying about the timeline on that but and I know you're familiar with the Muller report if you read it the president engaged in multiple instances of obstruction of justice and so just like you've seen members of the House move in the what I believe certainly is the right column being in favor I do believe that as the American people continue to digest the testimony yesterday find out more and more and by the report here from attorney McGann because we're going to subpoena and require him to come forth come out and see the underlying evidence I believe more of the American people will be with us as well look maybe so I'm just saying I still think the currency is being straightforward and even something like this seems a little bit of a dance and the American people are so sensitive to subterfuge right now the straighter you are I think the better it is no matter what you guys do but congresswoman Val Demmings your straight shooter by coming on this show I appreciate it and welcome you back thank you have me back be well all right so impeach don't impeach if they don't impeach there's another way to get the president out of office you know it's called an election the 20/20 candidates are honing in now on really a key voting block for Democrats specifically african-americans we have numbers that show worries certainly for this president and also some interesting indications in part you're going to want to see it next you so senator Elizabeth Warren may have started the slogan of I have a plan but Kamala Harris is saying it's not as good as mine she just dropped the policy plan for investing in historically black colleges and minority-owned businesses she was one of several 20/20 candidates to appear at the Urban League conference today huge for Democrats because ahead of the big CNN debate next week they're gonna want to say that they can be strong with that demographic cory booker joe biden traded blows over their criminal justice records for the same reason now this is what we're seeing with democrats pushing hard for african-americans the numbers and the opportunity especially when you consider the incumbent they all want to face this president loves to talk up one specific accomplishment so the unemployment rate among african-americans is the lowest in the history of our country the african-american have the best numbers in the history of our country african-american unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded are a little bit of a protip talking points generally suffer from context and let's look at these numbers and you see they don't work as well as the president wants them to why unemployment for african-americans did hit an historic low last year period the numbers started to climb up a little bit earlier this year their reasons for that here though the same time the overall rate has remained pretty low it raises the question of exactly who does the Trump economy serve while Trump errs will point to the first step act as a bipartisan benchmark of criminal justice reform now that people are starting to be released from prison the blow blow blow back is starting from the right so what do you see to balance it out a return to one of the most disproportional forms of punishment as harshness the death penalty all right that returns to on the federal level killing people in the name of justice african-americans are disproportionately punished by that penalty what about the clemency for Alice Murray Johnson and Jack Johnson the price of this president's compassion is the glow of celebrity adulation which we once again see on display as POTUS ramps up volume on behalf of right ASAP Rocky is that how you say it's a dollar sign ap now the rapper is being held in Sweden on assault charges the president got some celebrity buzz on this responded okay now it's all about how you want to measure these things well unemployment's at the lowest ever yeah except the gap between white and black is as bad as we've seen it well look I've helped these hire these big-name celebrities with their causes the grand total of african-american senior advisors within this administration administration remains at one ben Carson at HUD an agency a had no business running Trump's team knows the politics black voters helped put him in the White House why not by actually voting for him by staying home they didn't come out to vote for Hillary they didn't come out and that was the big sir thank you to the African American committee he's right more than a third of Obama voters who sat out 2016 african-american that's why you see this president picking up on the attacks on Biden's criminal justice record of course look he is not the right agent for that as a white anglo-saxon man he can sell the outrage of other white men all day long but if you're gonna look at Joe Biden and start playing about black politics with what you did with the Central Park five and birtherism and as the wizard of odds showed you last night he attacks from this president and the Democrats hasn't done much to hinder the former VP's popularity with african-americans he's very high 2016 Trump asked black voters what they had to lose after an historic midterm fueled in large part by black turnout Democrats know what they have to lose the question is are they motivating those voters with their proposals or alienating them with their policies and their attacks okay so the question is what will it take to generate enthusiasm among African Americans this go we need to have a debate on this we have both sides completely covered with these two good-looking gents next so if 20 20 Democrats don't want to repeat of 2016 they're gonna need to bring out more african-american voters while candidates roll out ambitious proposals far to the left then to the center President Trump insists his administration has delivered huge wins for the african-american community starting point for tonight's great debate Bakari sellers who by the way endorsed Kamala Harris and Niger Innis who I'm guessing has not all right good to have you both thank you very much but guess first thing first thing to you Bakari is are you okay with the Democrat state of play you endorsed Harris so I'm assuming you're okay with what she did in the debate with Biden but now you have Booker calling the VP I want to get it straight an architect of mass incarceration do you feel that that is a fair appraisal of the former VP I think it's a fair appraisal I think when you look at the 84 86 88 and 94 crime bills the damage that is caused that's a fair appraisal I mean I think the challenge for all of these candidates and you're starting to see it is what are you going to do now I think putting forth these robust policy proposals is the answer to many of those questions but because I had Jim Clyburn over here and he was for those bills too and he said that it's not as simple as looking at one aspect of it it was about the time and what we could get done and what else we had in there I don't think that you does that mean that the candidates are not being fair to Biden in that appraisal no no in fact Jim Clyburn was wrong as well I mean Bobby Rush who served with Jim Clyburn and made that same 94 vote dick Durbin who served with Jim Clyburn and made that 94 vote they've all said that that was the worst vote they've taken in their life they regret that vote because Jim Clyburn and Joe Biden cannot let that go it's very hard to believe that you can remedy those problems but this is a robust debate that we're having within our party we are trying to build on the criminal justice reform that Barack Obama set forth but let me also say this Chris and Niger as well you know let's not get bogged down on this one issue cuz black folk like more than just criminal justice reform we'd like to make money too and so one of the things that you're seeing from Peabody judge the Kamala Harris to beta O'Rourke to Elizabeth Warren as you're seeing these substance of policy pants directed at the African American community to remedy and cut in half that racial wealth gap right one thing Republicans always want to do is say I want black voters let's do criminal justice reform Tim Scott does get it right let me say that but more voters have to start more politicians you know that helps or hurts bring out the black vote but to you Niger look the challenges is easy you got your first step act and you have that the economy is good and that means it's good for everybody you do have the yawning gap between black and white that's as bad as it's ever been but the bigger problem is who the agent is here he may be the perfect messenger as an older white anglo-saxon male to go out a Protestant to go after the outrage in the disaffection of the white community but for Donald Trump to sell himself as Pro black after the Central Park five and birtherism does he even have a shot well first of all he wasn't the only one back in New York in the late 80s early 90s that were troubled about crime and trouble outraged he accused him of having done something they were exonerated by I'm going to shock you there were black leaders including my father that would just this outrage that the initial reports now if he's not just the initial report he says now that they did it well you know we can we can argue here saying now you know what what the street wasn't the argument Roger was bad because he doesn't want to upset the people who like to hear that the brown guys did it well let me let me get to some of the larger ones here and not just focus on why were you I would leave that one alone also niger well made because you know trump was not the only one there were a number he's now president of the united states there was a bunch of people who didn't know what the hell they were talking about is not the cover for a sitting president to say he still won't accept the justice in that case move on let me say this let me say this all right as a Republican a lot of your viewers may not believe me I would say look at an individual named Tavis Smiley who is a Democrat uber liberal Democrat while making an analysis of the state of black black America after eight years of Barack Obama and let's be let's be clear here you know Camilla Harris I mean I loved and got got senator Harris let me make it easy on myself spin of the Harris and and booted edge and and and and or or and many of the others are frankly doing a warmed-over Obama nominee and what Tavis Smiley said was that after eight years of Obama nominates Barack Obama's policies black America not by one in economic indicator not by two not by three these are his words but by every single economic indicator are worse off another Democrat another black Democrat named Bob Johnson the founder of B et de Meaux Kratt a Hillary Clinton donor giving us a question about an analysis of Donald Trump's performance in the economy he said not only is it a plus but it's a plus in particular for groups of Americans that have been left behind in black and brown I don't care who the messenger is we're sick of pander fest and with the message on sports we want action and delivery I don't need I don't need to tell either of you the messenger matters this demographic maybe more than any other has the keenest ear for false praise and fake friends Bakari are you worried about the economics I'm worried about the economics I mean I'm not gonna sit here and and bash Tavis Smiley and Bob Johnson although I have very hearty disagreements with them both in Tavis Smiley's petty disagreements with the president go back goes back to not getting inauguration ticket so I'm not gonna go into that but what I am gonna say is the economics is very important I mean we there are many of us and Niger I'm sure is one of them one of them who have been chanting for a long period of time for both parties to talk about issues of increasing african-american wealth access to wealth because many times that's the only way that you can that you can achieve and attain some level of success and I mentioned I fail to mention one person earlier Bernie Sanders who's also talking about these issues and so it's more than just criminal justice reform I think Chris though you hit the nail on the head that there are a lot of us who who wouldn't take anything from Lester Maddox there are a lot of us who wouldn't take anything from George Wallace there are a lot of us who won't take anything from Donald Trump it's the same vein I mean Donald Trump is a racist period and I say that based on fact I say that based on action I say that based on deed and so I'm not going to make that argument to Niger and everyone else in this country people who are watching I will say that even before we are Republican or Democrat we're black first we're American were black first and and going into that it's very hard to have someone who every single day makes you feel or attempts to make you feel lesser of an individual by his words and deeds because of the color of your skin the Central Park five is just one of those ways in which he does it and you can atone by that by simply trying to get its pronounced ASAP Chris trying to get ASAP rocky out of jail it takes a little bit more than that so let me ask you one other thing though Bakari the idea of African American vote well if they can get another African American they'll always vote for them that is not true and as a policy categorization and you know in that demo especially if you're looking at African American women pretty center of the road pretty middle-of-the-road they do not go in for very hyper ambitious progressive policies are you worried that while you may be talking the same talk on some fronts you're pushing it too much on the policy front and that could have a chilling effect none at all because I tell people this all the time especially in the primary African American women my mom and her friends are the people who choose the nominee I mean black women came out in droves for Hillary Clinton black women voted at the tune of 94 to 96 percent for Hillary Clinton white women voted at 53 percent for Donald Trump I don't have the audacity to believe I know why that is but I'm quite comfortable with this simple fact we're getting something right in the Democratic Party right now even with all the bickering because in 2016 there was a choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and a lot of black voters chose the couch right now I think by giving people something to vote for giving them policy giving them initiative to vote for you'll see more people engaged in the process this is not going to be a race don't be scared a powerful black women it that was a powerful black woman I love powerful black alright alright guys thank you for this especially on a Friday night Bakari not again thank you be will Democrats have just blown up one of the president's key arguments for keeping his taxes secret okay they've turned back time with help from Richard Nixon how so the answer comes from a key congressional investigator with the dates next what's going on in here you can see what it is yet everybody this is DOS it's beautiful I love the lights company it's gonna mean face on it it looks like a piece of candy look at the interior this is nice this is my sexy mom car I will feel like a cooler dad it's just really chic love this it's gorgeous I would pull up in this and a heartbeat I want one of these that is sharp the all-new Chevy Blazer it speaks for itself can my sight be firm in my sights some Republicans are calling Democrats requests for president Trump's tax returns unprecedented but now Democrats are pointing to newly released documents showing there is a precedent the Joint Committee on taxation got some of then President Nixon's records from the IRS after Nixon failed to turn them over let's discuss with House Ways and Means member lloyd doggett congressman welcome back it's been too long Chris good to be with you sir so the argument is you have no legit legislative purpose this is political payback that's why you can't get the taxes no matter how many shells are in this statute what's your counter well we dug through the archives and actually came up with the original documents copies of them that showed that President Nixon first released some of his tax returns voluntarily but when the committee needed to see other returns the Internal Revenue Service not only responded affirmatively they did it the same day they were asked and as well the committee looked at the returns of one of President Nixon's children the there was not a problem there was not a debate just as there really wasn't any debate at the Internal Revenue Service when they got their first internal opinion the opinion that secretary minuchin rejected when he turned to political sources to justify the total obstruction on this issue now is the linking thought here that the reason that Congress had a better chance of getting them under Nixon is because there was an impeachment inquiry going on and that can qualify as a judicial proceeding and a judge or the they don't have extra powers in Congress under that situation it gives you extra leverage with the court there's reference in some of the documents to the fact that an impeachment proceeding was underway but there's no indication that that was the reason that the IRS so quickly responded there was not any debate there was a willingness to make available IRS employees if necessary there was there was the kind of cooperation that comes when you have a clear unqualified statute that says shall as you mentioned that shall man shall then and it means shall now it's just that this particular request that's been made has come so late that I don't expect we will see these documents during this calendar year and I hope we get them before the end of this Congress now what happens if when you get the taxes and you know it shows he didn't have as much income as maybe he led people to believe but it's still plenty he wasn't that charitable you know maybe he played with funny money the way a lot of wealthy people do what if there's just not that much in there how big a blow is that well if if that's the case those aren't the only issues that we're looking at the principal issue was to see whether he is the audit process is working appropriately for presidents there are other issues as well concerning whether he's ever paid any taxes at all whether he's been under audit we couldn't even get an answer to that question so the IRS won't tell you whether or not the president's under audit know told me that he has proof that he's under audit that he has the letters I asked him to show them to me and he was like yeah but maybe that's something you could ask for it well in fact the the original request from the chairman of our committee did ask about the audit process and mr. minuchin has blocked access to that too he's done the kind of obstruction you would expect of the former finance chair for the Trump election campaign which is what mr. munition was doing before he became the Treasury secretary so congressman helped me understand where things stand with the Democrats right now we've been all this pressure what are you guys going to make a decision about whether or not to launch an impeachment inquiry you're nuts to investigate to figure out if you have enough to investigate and then today in court papers it says that you are under consideration in the Judiciary Committee of articles of impeachment when did this happen well there's been no formal articles drafted for consideration the Judiciary Committee I think at the moment but the committee I think is effectively beginning such an inquiry you know that mean lovely beginning such an inquiry it seems like a hedge like playing cutesy that's why I'm asking well no I know I think it's not cutesy though it may have been a little confusion at the press conference about it in order to get access to the grand jury testimony that they've requested they have a much stronger case if this is part of Congress's impeachment responsibilities beyond that this committee can on its own initiate an impeachment inquiry an inquiry is an appropriate thing to do before any articles are drafted absolutely determine if they're grounds for impeachment absolutely I borrow doing all along and by the way full disclosure lloyd doggett is not somebody who has been dodging this question just to be fair but it's that if you want if you guys believe what you keep saying by suggestion you think is true about this president that an impeachment inquiry is a no-brainer but the first word of that phrase seems to have a chilling effect and now we see this move well I think the problem that I've had you know it took me a little while to get to the impeachment stage I wanted to be sure that there were no other alternatives but I saw the the administration running out the clock and Democrats not responding in a forceful way I mean here we are a hundred days tomorrow after the Muller report was released right we're to the August recess and this Democratic caucus has yet to until today to take any offensive action to file anything other than this belated a request for the tax returns all of the work the Democrats have been doing has been playing defense to Donald Trump's litigation challenges and we will not prevail on by just taking the defense I believe in chairman Adler and what he's doing and I think he's begun an investigation that could lead to impeachment right may not lead to impeachment but it isn't appropriate inquiry I just think one of the reasons we've cultivated your presence on this show is because you keep talking straight to the American people about it when you had reservations you said what they were when you had convictions you said what they were I believe that's the currency that people are going to expect here to the extent that there's a hesitation I think what you see in the polls is they don't want more sneaky stuff going on so straightforward straight talk is the currency I couldn't agree with you more and and Chris I think we also have a responsibility to lead with that straight talk to just hold our finger up to the wind to see what the polls show doesn't take care of it we have a responsibility under the Constitution to go out and lead to explain to the American people they will help make this decision certainly but they need to be fully informed by their members of Congress and others of what's been going on here and you know we didn't have a sensational moment not the best perhaps screen review of mr. Muller's testimony but the substance of what he said is so very important and of his report but it's up to members of Congress to go out and talk with people about that in a very straight way yeah Mahler didn't want to be there and he's not looking for anybody's vote I think performance talk is distracting I know why the president's doing he sees politics as performance but I think that there's also a higher order congressman lloyd doggett thank you especially on a Friday night q Chris appreciate it I'm gonna sue and be well all right how about this one something spooky some people are trying to mess with Halloween no trick what is it a treat Laura coats in for D lemon aka the upgrade what does she think about the move will argue next alright here's the situation there's a new petition to move the date of Halloween to the last Saturday of the month does it have more than a ghost of a chance a Halloween industry trade group launched its plea last year arguing what well moving All Hallows Eve will lead to a safer longer and stress-free celebration the petition now has some eighty-five thousand signatures they're trying to get to 150 I don't know the relevance of that number Laura coats bring in the counselor aka the upgrade which side of this do you want I like the upgrade comment thank you I would sign the petition twice krispies what I'm against it no you know what a big pain it is as a mom to try to leave work early on Halloween I know but it's a bad I do well sorry I mean I'm the mom in this scenario yeah but you had to leave work early you got to go get your kids you got to figure out the constant get the makeup on put your own costume on it's already nighttime by then forget it's very nice much better mm-hmm suck it up that's what parents do this is about tradition having the kids understanding where it is it means more when it's hard okay well I suppose you walked up the hill ten miles in the snow those words both ways I did not and I can tell you it's easier for everyone and say for me on Saturday now you can start earlier in the day remember it's already like nighttime the sun's down by the time Halloween tarts that's the point I rose if you have little kids though you gotta have people who can go a little bit earlier Chris I want my Snickers bar early in the night oh is that your go-to fun-sized KitKat well Oh fun sighs that what you do know I do the full bar the share size what I like it I'm a Reese's Pieces person you know the other day we did some research on this on my radio show you know Laura and I both have shows in Sirius XM so Reese's peanut butter cups are number one across the bowl of peanuts stuff wins so much for the allergies I'll go with the peanut butter cup but one other thing you know the kids may not like this because they get a nice break on that day although some of the schools like my kids the Catholic school year they're a little rough on the costumes but you know that's a nice break for the kids you'll be taking that from them when you get whaling it Halloween Chris your I wear this that's your costume I'll go as Chris Cuomo then that's why I have the Blues Brothers chauffeur waiter that's why you didn't sign the petition because you'll have fun with Holloway I don't say anything well clearly well you know what if you were to sign something start with this because I'm telling you it is a good thing Huck about an upgrade this would upgrade Halloween for everybody you know coats you are smarter than me so it wasn't fair but you're also right your side of this wins I think they should move it let's see if it happens thank you very much my friend good luck tonight be within a second all right forwards brush up your Shakespeare yes behold the argument about what baguettes this democrat be getting next [Applause] all right I've burned a lot of calories on this one a little Shakespeare for your Friday night what is in a name take a listen you're saying there's no difference between what you're doing now internet Pietschmann amore correct in fact this is an impeachment investigation we're crossing a threshold absolutely okay so Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have officially opened an impeachment inquiry what's going on is that I think too much has been made of the phrase a impeachment inquiry you can define it as you please undoubtedly we are collecting overwhelming evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors committed by the president United States hence the Romeo and Juliet allusions here however there is nothing poetic about the play being made here however just like in Romeo and Juliet no matter how much you wish otherwise what you call something matters so what's going on here well the message seemed pretty clear in court documents today the committee is investigating whether to recommend articles of impeachment and requires access to grand jury materials in furtherance of that investigation although the house has not considered a formal resolution structuring any particular proceedings by this committee such a resolution is not a necessary predicate to consideration of articles of impeachment soft what light through yonder Court pleading breaks they may not need the resolution but then why not just call it what it is outside of court here's a good reason speaker Pelosi does not seem to agree that Democrats are already in impeach inquiry mode I'm not trying to cut let's get sophisticated about this okay okay but how long do that is for fights we'll take we won't proceed when we have what we need to proceed not one day sooner sophisticated I'm quoting Shakespeare here most House Democrats are with this speaker on this now the number supporting an impeachment inquiry is growing you see the all they're about triple digits but here's why it's taken time to get there despite so much talk damming from Democrats what this president has done you're not there 59% of you are not in favor of impeachment hearings that number is up from 46% a year ago meaning it is more against since the report came out however we do not have numbers since the Muller hearing we'll see but let's be clear about this this is not playing gotcha with the Democrats and you didn't say it's saying different things it's not petty okay it is sophisticated because it's about being straight with people and as in the play the name carries a meaningful distinction in fact many legal experts argue launching an overt impeachment inquiry while not necessarily giving Congress additional powers may give Congress additional leverage thus speeding up a couple of cases for example this White House is denying access to grand jury material arguing that Congress doesn't have a legitimate legislative purpose for requesting it that's why they said what they said in court today because an impeachment inquiry gives them more of a look of a judicial proceeding so a court can allow them to be disclosed if it's in connection with the judicial proceeding you get what I'm saying an impeachment inquiry looks more like that than just regular oversight okay so they're trying to make it look not like a run-of-the-mill congressional situation saying the words impeachment inquiry could also open the door to other information that Democrats desperately want like what Dom against testimony the president's tax returns for the same reason so this seems to be about avoiding a vote on the floor to start an inquiry on one level why the Republicans would likely all be against it whipping Democrats to get to a yes may not be a slam dunk and it's also a hedge against the real risk that the majority of the country might take an impeachment move as proof that Democrats are no better than the bully they see in the White House to stick with willing here the voters may say a plague on both your houses bottom line if the Democrats want to play to advantage be transparent be sophisticated in that be straightforward there's already too much confusion about what is real
