RUSH TRANSCRIPT SCIUTTO You ░░░░░░░░ have come out in ░░░░░░░░ of opening impeachment proceedings ░░░░░░░░ the president for the ░░░░░░░░ s behavior up to ░░░░░░░░ point We ask you ░░░░░░░░ by itself is the ░░░░░░░░ signaling publicly a willingness ░░░░░░░░ break standing U S ░░░░░░░░ law is that by ░░░░░░░░ an impeachable offense in ░░░░░░░░ view COHEN I think ░░░░░░░░ s part of an ░░░░░░░░ approach It may be ░░░░░░░░ but you take the ░░░░░░░░ of the circumstances is ░░░░░░░░ person capable of serving ░░░░░░░░ public idea and the ░░░░░░░░ that the Constitution drew ░░░░░░░░ the presidency When you ░░░░░░░░ that you will violate ░░░░░░░░ law and work with ░░░░░░░░ information from foreign powers ░░░░░░░░ is against the law ░░░░░░░░ shows you cannot be ░░░░░░░░ because you can t ░░░░░░░░ execute the office which ░░░░░░░░ the oath you take ░░░░░░░░ this will be something ░░░░░░░░ will add to my ░░░░░░░░ impeachment article I drafted ░░░░░░░░ I had one filed ░░░░░░░░ 2017 I have had ░░░░░░░░ amended fine tuned it ░░░░░░░░ be more fine tuned ░░░░░░░░ one day I will ░░░░░░░░ it SCIUTTO As you ░░░░░░░░ the Speaker of the ░░░░░░░░ Nancy Pelosi has to ░░░░░░░░ point resisted moving to ░░░░░░░░ impeachment proceedings against the ░░░░░░░░ With this latest statement ░░░░░░░░ the president do you ░░░░░░░░ that Speaker Pelosi is ░░░░░░░░ in her duty to ░░░░░░░░ the law COHEN I ░░░░░░░░ t say that You ░░░░░░░░ Nancy Pelosi and I ░░░░░░░░ friends I respect her ░░░░░░░░ s really smart She ░░░░░░░░ got a different perspective ░░░░░░░░ what gets the country ░░░░░░░░ the best shape and ░░░░░░░░ rid of Donald Trump ░░░░░░░░ she thinks it s ░░░░░░░░ 2020 elections I think ░░░░░░░░ 2020 elections will rid ░░░░░░░░ of him but I ░░░░░░░░ he is a present ░░░░░░░░ and that if we ░░░░░░░░ t do something to ░░░░░░░░ and I think impeachment ░░░░░░░░ will help see that ░░░░░░░░ is beaten but that ░░░░░░░░ not the reason to ░░░░░░░░ it I think we ░░░░░░░░ a moral imperative to ░░░░░░░░ those charges and the ░░░░░░░░ at least us stand ░░░░░░░░ and do its responsibility ░░░░░░░░ if the Senate won ░░░░░░░░ I think we ll ░░░░░░░░ blood on our hands ░░░░░░░░ think we ll see ░░░░░░░░ dying because this man ░░░░░░░░ find a way to ░░░░░░░░ the dog get us ░░░░░░░░ a war to improve ░░░░░░░░ standings and to make ░░░░░░░░ feel like a man ░░░░░░░░ not just a guy ░░░░░░░░ the upper side of ░░░░░░░░ sent to a military ░░░░░░░░ upstate because he is ░░░░░░░░ bad young man Now ░░░░░░░░ can be the commander ░░░░░░░░ chief We will see ░░░░░░░░ come out of him ░░░░░░░░ To this point no ░░░░░░░░ Republican lawmakers to my ░░░░░░░░ and correct me if ░░░░░░░░ m wrong but no ░░░░░░░░ Republican lawmakers have objected ░░░░░░░░ the president s comments ░░░░░░░░ regarding accepting help from ░░░░░░░░ foreign power former John ░░░░░░░░ for instance former politicians ░░░░░░░░ but no sitting lawmaker ░░░░░░░░ do you say to ░░░░░░░░ Republican colleagues who will ░░░░░░░░ call out this behavior ░░░░░░░░ Well there s not ░░░░░░░░ you can say to ░░░░░░░░ that hasn t been ░░░░░░░░ before You know I ░░░░░░░░ at the panel when ░░░░░░░░ Dean and Joyce vans ░░░░░░░░ Barbara Mcquaid came before ░░░░░░░░ on Monday I saw ░░░░░░░░ men and one lady ░░░░░░░░ I thought these are ░░░░░░░░ same people in different ░░░░░░░░ that sat on with ░░░░░░░░ Nixon and it took ░░░░░░░░ long time before you ░░░░░░░░ some Republicans to leave ░░░░░░░░ think about half the ░░░░░░░░ ended up voting for ░░░░░░░░ but at first there ░░░░░░░░ none These are the ░░░░░░░░ people and some will ░░░░░░░░ down like the people ░░░░░░░░ stood with Nixon They ░░░░░░░░ not show leadership will ░░░░░░░░ buck their party will ░░░░░░░░ face the truth and ░░░░░░░░ can t face reality ░░░░░░░░ politically they support this ░░░░░░░░ and unfortunately the Republican ░░░░░░░░ as we know it ░░░░░░░░ supports this president 90 ░░░░░░░░ this president They don ░░░░░░░░ care if he is ░░░░░░░░ They don t care ░░░░░░░░ he shoots somebody on ░░░░░░░░ avenue SCIUTTO You are ░░░░░░░░ of the numbers here ░░░░░░░░ we will put these ░░░░░░░░ on the screen 76 ░░░░░░░░ Democrats they do support ░░░░░░░░ impeachment proceedings against the ░░░░░░░░ but among independents it ░░░░░░░░ only a third That ░░░░░░░░ where the money is ░░░░░░░░ the coming elections because ░░░░░░░░ are going to turn ░░░░░░░░ that give you pause ░░░░░░░░ opening proceedings impeachment COHEN ░░░░░░░░ at all When Watergate ░░░░░░░░ started it was at ░░░░░░░░ in favor of removing ░░░░░░░░ president The facts that ░░░░░░░░ produced at the hearings ░░░░░░░░ it from 19 up ░░░░░░░░ 57 We had the ░░░░░░░░ minutes we had rosemary ░░░░░░░░ the quote unquote smoking ░░░░░░░░ but I think if ░░░░░░░░ get the witnesses if ░░░░░░░░ have the hearings the ░░░░░░░░ will see more and ░░░░░░░░ and more That this ░░░░░░░░ a lawless presidency that ░░░░░░░░ man does not know ░░░░░░░░ constraints on his ambition ░░░░░░░░ his narcissism on his ░░░░░░░░ and that people will ░░░░░░░░ along and that will ░░░░░░░░ especially the independents who ░░░░░░░░ more likely to be ░░░░░░░░ are independent more likely ░░░░░░░░ be college educated more ░░░░░░░░ to be concerned about ░░░░░░░░ the Democrats care about ░░░░░░░░ healthcare like guns like ░░░░░░░░ climate change and they ░░░░░░░░ about those issues too ░░░░░░░░ think it just raises ░░░░░░░░ numbers By the time ░░░░░░░░ hearings are over I ░░░░░░░░ those numbers will be ░░░░░░░░
