speaker of the rules have made it clear. i will not leave the party in future general election campaign. >> laura: who's the guy with the hat behind labor loser jeremy corbyn? only saying he will not run as a leader going forward. i'm sure his fellow lefties would rather see them fade away from public arena. great news for trump. >> shannon: this is a fox news alert. lawmakers at this late hour are still debating articles of impeachment against president trump. house judiciary democrats have forced to hold a clear vote, sent to the house for a full vote. tonight's marathon markup session is evolving into a fiery republicans united unwavering in her opposition while democrats were told might be tonight. live coverage, the vote comes this hour, don't come anywhere print however long it takes, we'll be here. think a lot of the vice of win for prime minister boris johnson. brexit after years of messy negotiations but what does it
mean for our relationship to the u.k.? exit party leader nigel rogers on deck. welcome to "fox news @ night," i'm shannon bream in new york. monitoring around the clock. >> this began more than 12 hours ago. there is no indication it's going to end anytime soon. democrats and republicans going back and forth, a lot of hyperbole, a lot of yelling. we put together a story to show you exactly the arguments on both sides. watch. >> we must impeach donald j. trump. >> this is got to stop before he goes too much further. >> democrats pushing forward with two articles of impeachment, the first, abuse of power. democrats say they pressured ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky to investigate joe biden's son in order to receive millions in military aid. said he was not pressured and there was no quid pro quo. >> said he was not
he has a gun to his head. speak republicans argue that the president held up and because he was concerned about corruption in ukraine. the >> you read the lines. they can read the transcript. quit saying, i want you to do me a favor. it must be hard to read! i guess me and thus get confused when you try to mak make a fax. >> you cannot get to argue things both ways. you cannot say the president was so concerned about ukraine that he released aide, which is true. he released aid in 2017. released in 2018, and suddenly he became concerned in 2019 right after vice president biden announced he was going to run. >> the second article, obstruction of congress. democrats say the trump administration has repeatedly refused to cooperate with the impeachment investigation by
ignoring multiple subpoenas. the article reads "no president has ordered the complete defiance of an impeachment inquiry or sought to impede so come pensively the ability of the house of herbs and natives to investigate high crimes and misdemeanors. argues that the trump administration has provided thousands of pages of documents to cooperate and should be decided by the judiciary. >> if those tributes cannot be resolved, the courts are to step in. anything less threatens the separation of powers that is the very foundation of this constitution. >> but democrats say the constitution is clear. >> do not be confused by the lawyers on the other side who would teach the wrong civics lesson and distract you with the notion that we need to go to court, we need permission of a president, we need permission of the court. we do not. >> just a taste of what happened
today and this evening, who knows how long this would go but it could go at least another hour and we've seen a lot of these hearings over the past few weeks that are lasting for hours upon end. his hearing significant because after this hearing, those articles of impeachment could go to the house floor. that's when they are expected to go next week. shannon? >> shannon: we'll be here for the duration. thank you. still awaiting a key vote from the house judiciary committee tonight from the democrats' articles of impeachment from the president read let's bring in senator mike lee who sits on the senate judiciary committee and would be a juror if his hands this way. i want to play something from congressman hank johnson, a democrat. says this is why we've arrived at this moment. >> when the sign says clement in case of emergency brake glass, there better be one heck of an emergency. i did not call for impeachment before. but i call for impeachment
today. because this is one heck of an emergency. >> shannon: you know the argument, senator. they say the president has left them no choice. >> they say the president somehow left them no choice. what are they saying, the republicarepublic is going to gd over? i think not. from the hearings yesterday, we discovered that the overwhelming force of the over down the government has been harnessed in such a way to harm the president of the united states. they failed, the american people have been harmed as a result and they will not tolerate this anymore. or we saw through this hearing is a series of events that show that either one, the fbi was weaponized to wage a political war against a potential candidate they despise. or alternatively, they are so incompetent that they allow a two bit foreign political operative to wage war against a potential candidate. either one of these outcomes are unacceptable and we aren't going to tolerate this anymore.
>> shannon: okay. they take the next step and it goes to the full floor for a vote. if that passes, and democrats will enforce this to get it to you in the senate. here is what rush limbaugh says, his take on how you in the senate should handle it. >> it's about time to go on offense with this! your president didn't do it! your president is not guilty! they don't have a shred of evidence! they have not one bit of evidence, never had on any of the allegations they've made! so i'm begging you, people in the senate. do not go into this defensively at all. >> shannon: what is the plan, senator, if this has into the senate? >> not to go in at defensively at all as rush limbaugh's objected. we have every reason to be bullish about this, optimistic about this. sad to be sure the country is in this position because democrats have put us here. but we are going to be very much on the offense.
we are very optimistic about the outcome. why? the president is on the side of truth and the law. in this circumstance, he didn't do anything wrong. the american people are tired of this political manipulation that we've been seeing from the democratic party. they will cancel win election so they are going after the president instead. the president is going to win and he's going to win in a big way. >> shannon: professor laurence tribe, says senate republicans can't refute the evidence that trump is still abusing his power, betraying our national security, corrupting his office and come revising the upcoming election. of course they prepare a try without or documents, all of which would be incriminating. how do you respond to his assessment that plan that many feel is coming into shape for senate republicans? >> look, i don't know how they do things at harvard but i'll tell you what we do in washington. we will go to trial, take witnesses as he suggests and do you know what we are going to do? and embarrass the heck out of the democratic party.
they've been an embarrassment in the way they've handled this. there is not a scintilla of evidence supporting an impeachable offense per they've got to be ashamed of themselves and going to be punished in a very significant way in november. >> shannon: i want to ask you about the horwitz report. you've had a lot to say about the fisa court, that 96% of the applications are approved, its x partake meaning the government is the only one providing evidence. you judges have to rely on the evidence, they can't be faulted ruling what's in front of them and there are a lot of people saying it's long overdue to have some kind reforms of the system. if it can be as abused as, as communal, the inspector general horowitz seems to say it was in the case involving carter page, what do you think about steps moving forward? >> badly abused. i been saying nearly all the nine years i've served in the united states senate that this is a statute that's rife with opportunities for abuse. i knew that it would not be a question of if but when and how badly it would be abused.
that has now happened. got people at every end of the political spectrum on the senate judiciary committee and the senate as a whole saying that the foreign intelligence surveillance act as it stands cannot stand any longer. we are going to scrap this thing, undertake a major overhaul, not going to let this be business as usual. >> shannon: senator mike lee, always good to see you. thank you. breaking tonight, a breakthrough on another trade deal. the u.s. and china have reached a phase one agreement, we are told tonight. correspondent leland vittert is following the latest tonight. >> breaking tonight, our best indication of what will happen tomorrow morning with the opening bell rings are up sharply. look at the right-hand side of your screen. the asian markets which opened a few hours ago are up big, ahead of this phase one announcement that michael tells barry who you are going to hear from advises the president on this one.
>> four elements to it. opening up chinese financial markets to our banks but never done that before. number two, intellectual property theft agreement that's enforceable. number three is promising in the way we can verify that they won't use currency to manipulate trade terms anymore. and the fourth area has to do with the chinese overall approach to keeping their word and trade. >> the deal involves a delay that were supposed to go into effect december 15th. these would of praised prices exhibit consumer good like electronics taking a bite out of american public books. marco rubio is not so sure. this is his tweet, the white house should consider the risk that a deal with china would give to a broader agreement on issues that matter the most, such as subsidies to
domestic firms, tech transfers, and plopping firms' access to key centers? >> i think enforcement is crucial. watch out for two keys, companies out of control of the government may be predatory and dishonest on their own. the other is the government of china itself has a strategy to take american construction to make china the number one power in the world. >> the chinese are legendary for making and breaking their deals. during a statement made by president xi to the white house, senior cyber defense source will be at the time that while xi was attending the state dinner with obama, his military was lodging new attacks to the united states. one of the reasons the white house says that the phase
one that will come tomorrow and phase two after the 2020 elections is important to try and see if the chinese are going to keep their word at this time. >> shannon: very important. setting the stage for another impeachment showdown. keeping an eye on these hearings. everything you need to know, all the key players next. breathe freely fast, with vicks sinex. my congestion's gone. i can breathe again! ahhhh!
i can breathe again! ughh! vicks sinex. breathe on. most people think as a reliable phone company. but to businesses, we're a reliable partner. we keep companies ready for what's next. (man) we weave security into their business. (second man) virtualize their operations. (woman) and build ai customer experiences.

>> shannon: there may be a break in the action as this debate over the articles of impeachment in the committee has been going on for hours and hours and hours. you see them now. let's go to our chief producer on the hill who knows all things to try to see if we can get some explanation. we are now hitting 11:00 p.m. eastern, this has been going on since early this morning. any clue to what they are right
now? >> the chair of the judiciary committee has basically told members that they are going to vote on the articles of impeachment, sending them out of committee, and sending them over across the street to the u.s. capitol on the house floor tomorrow. what they've just been doing is handling a procedural matter here, there'll probably be some wrap up here. doug collins, rebooking of georgia talking to jerry nadler there. jerry nadler said he wants members to go home, get some rest, sort they are conscious and come back and vote tomorrow. this will be the third day of the markup session. a markup session, this is really the softest making process on capitol hill. they do it on almost every bill and they do it on articles of impeachment where they consider amendments an amendment to become the actual legislation. the same thing here. articles of impeachment, those two articles, obstruction of justice and abuse of power will be considered tomorrow.
they've been at it since 9:00 this morning with only two brief breaks. people are tired and jerry nadler wants people to get some shut-eye, go home, think about this. and vote tomorrow. >> real quick question and will go to our panel. we've been watching this all day. this started happening. we can see the ranking member here. the top republican stopping to get some comments as we try to figure out exactly what's happening here they've been voting in all the amendments and different things. does that mean they are done with that process and they are just going to come back to actually vote on the articles themselves? >> that's right. >> shannon: or do we see some sausage making going on? >> we are pretty much done with that. republican proposals, six of them. since none of them were adopted, you get down to the nitty-gritty. those are the base articles be they were not altered in any way which is exactly what happens when there is an amendment, so the articles as written, we got a couple of days, it will be
played out. i think we are going to get some traffic here right over my shoulder and just a couple of minutes where some of the democrats and republicans come out and speak to the microphone. >> shannon: i'm sure they've got plenty to say. let us know but we'll go to our panel for a little bit of discussion we wait to see who filters out and they stopped to talk about this whole thing breaking up and what they've been doing all day. >> they'll be out here in just a minute. we will get them. >> shannon: let's bring in the advisor tim mayor bloomberg's advisor to 20 campaign doug schoen. let's bring them in and talk about this impeachment pulling over the last several weeks dating back to october to now. hold on a minute. i think we will hear from him and ranking member, revel looking doug collins who's been very fired up, clashing with jerry nadler leading up to this
and certainly now. let's listen in to see what the republicans have to say. >> i've just witnessed the most bush league stunt i've ever witnessed in my professional life. i've been around a lot of political campaigns. i've been around a lot of campaigns down like things that would make you think. in the midst of impeachment, the chairman just ambush the entire committee, we are going to have a vote at 10:00 a.m. in the morning? i guess they didn't think enough today of threading their very paper-thin impeachment process for over 12-14 hours was enough! so without consulting the ranking members, without consulting anyone, the schedule of anybody they put out there, scheduling it at 10:00 a.m. in the morning. i did not know, the integrity level of this committee, the chairman's integrity has been gone. his back is gone. this is the most bush league thing i've ever seen in forever. american people wonder about this impeachment anymore? they don't have to wonder anymore. they saw what happened here tonight because this committee is more concerned about getting
on tv in the morning then it was finishing its job tonight and letting the members go home. words cannot describe how inappropriate this was, how i had been saying for the whole year how this committee is just simply ram shouting the rules of this house and this proves it tonight. they do not care about the rules, their hatred of donald trump and this started because they wanted to shine in these cameras, get prettied up, and vote and make it all happen. i'm just beyond words at this point. but it shows the lack of integrity in this process and the lack of case that they have. for them to come out and defend this is the most ludicrous thing of ever seen in my life. >> why does it matter if you both tonight or tomorrow? the former member of the committee kopelman to jerry nadler. >> i don't think jim would complement him tonight. the reason we worked out tonight to finish tonight we are members who are getting on trains. number going home
but to not even consult the ranking members, not even give us a heads up? this is all we heard and we've been consulting back and forth the last few minutes about who is going to speak and how we will end the speaking tonight. we had plenty more amendments and other things and we've been here all night. we chose to say, we've said all we need to say, we are finishing this up. that was the most lack of integrity thing i've ever seen by a member of congress, especially chairman. i have no idea. >> before mr. nadler announced it in anyway -- figure my expression would confirm that >> my expression would confirm that. the chairman has no comment and to go, huh? this is why people don't like us. this crap is why people have a terrible opinion of congress for the rest of the majority who sat there quietly and said nothing, this is why they don't like us.
they know it's all about games. they know notes about these tv screens. it's all about getting to the press because they want the prime time hit. this is speaker pelosi and adam schiff and the others directing this committee -- i don't have a chairman anymore. i guess i have to go straight to ms. pelosi and say, what does this committee need to do? i'll see y'all tomorrow. >> shannon: you been listening in, the ranking member in the house judiciary committee doug collins very fired up, very frustrated what happened. they been debating since 9:00 a.m. this morning, the markups, the so-called and a chance her efforts to have amendments or debate what's going to come out of the house judiciary committee. the chairman jerry nadler, the democrat leading this committee said we are wrapping up for now. come back at 10:00 a.m. in the morning and have a vote. there was no consultation with the republicans and so they are not happy about that move. you heard him there alive, so let's go back to our panel and talk little bit about this.
doug, i'll start with you. democrats now have the building resentment and the criticism of them, this is very one-sided, the republicans have had no voice in the deliberations. they weren't able to call the witnesses they wanted to. this seems like a culmination of that tonight. >> it definitely is. look, i think this could have been done in a better and fair way. look, i think the chairman protests too much. >> shannon: the ranking member of. >> the ranking member. i misspoke. it's 11:30 at night, will do it back at 10:00 in the morning? that doesn't strike me as the worst thing that could happen. you were alluding to the polls, this has stagnated. this is not going to turn whether there is a vote at 11:30 or 10:00 a.m. it's not going affect public opinion. it might affect the members'
schedules. >> shannon: will go to chad on the hill but i want to make sure to get comments from jenna as he put a little bit -- we were going to put this up on the real clear politics looking at how opposing and supporting impeachment has played out over the last few weeks and you can see that the remove is the yellow at the top line. but that is now just about equal with those who say that they oppose this. do you think that this has backfired on democrats? the president said this is going to benefit the g.o.p. people warning him about taking that stance. for now, the polls, the american people seem to be feeling but it is these hearings have not helped to make the case for impeaching him. >> absolutely. you are seeing the implosion of the democratic party by how ridiculous of an impeachment scam this is, shannon. president trump has been clear from day one that he has done nothing wrong in the american people have seen that. throughout the course of these hearings, the ranking member was completely clear to be so frustrated that there has not
been meaningful access or input for any of the republicans in this entire process. of course, president trump and his team as well. they have not been able to fully participate in this process with due process at all. the american people have seen that. i think they are seeing these two articles are absolutely flimsy. no legal or constitutional basis whatsoever. obstruction of congress, really? that's absently every single president had the ability to have meaningful privilege and de process attached, the democrats are pushing this through and they are hurting because they have a deadline and that deadline is november of 2020 and they are going to push this through but they don't care about due process, don't care about going to the courts. don't care about anything for president trump or the american people. the american people are sick and tired of this and this is absolutely the end of the democratic party.
>> shannon: everybody stay put. going back to chad. we want to check in with a buddy on the hill as well print some members in play to join us how they feel about what's going on. we've been watching for hours, the markup of the impeachment articles. it suddenly now broken up. the chairman jerry nadler said we are not doing anymore tonight, just caught a break. he called the audible so we'll do the same. take a quick break and we'll come back with the latest news. wow. thanks, zoltar. how can i ever repay you? maybe you could free zoltar? thanks, lady. taxi! only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ (children playing) (dog barking) ♪ (music building)

transcript! i guess me and us get confused when you try to make up facts. >> shannon: the house judiciary committee, they just broke up a couple of minutes ago. in recess until 10:00 a.m. for then we are told they will vote on these articles of impeachment. it appears there is some type of deal that they get this done the night. let's go to the republican member of the judiciary committee, arizona congressman andy biggs. your reaction, we thought this would get done tonight. >> we all thought it would finish up your tonight. we actually thought there was a deal. we thought they were going to make their motion on the amendments -- on the underlying bill. they were going to divide the questions, they wanted it and two counts when it goes forward. then a big surprise, quite frankly a big stunner, mr. nadler said nope, we are going to come back tomorrow morning when we think there's going to be more people watching on tv.
>> shannon: my understanding is that you thought you had sort of an understanding that there be consultation with the g.o.p., there had been a plan. was there any warning this is going to be summoned before tonight? >> not at all. in fact, we had received specific -- the deal had been cut, received specific and itemized list of what they were going to do. they knew who we were going to gold, how many we had. we were going to then go through and finish the procedure tonig tonight. wouldn't take that much longer to go through, to be honest. this is an outrage, this is pretty typical of what we've seen in the overall thing, everything from the closed-door secret hearings all the way through to this thing where we have no fact witnesses to come in, they are bringing in 3-1 on the witness side. we are not given a fair shake here, that's just the way this
has gone. what was interesting is mr. nadler turned what was actually a win for him were some of our members had praised him and said, you know what? you actually handled the hearing pretty well today. fair to each side, pretty much, we have complaints. but we don't have major complaints. to basically blowing that up and killing any goodwill that he had generated. now he gets back to this thing where we look at it and say, we can't trust you. we deal with incredulity in the future and that's what he's done here to this process. >> shannon: this is about getting in front of the cameras, a play. the chairman, explained tonight what was his acclamation of why this was suddenly adjourned? did he have one? >> he didn't have an excellent nation. he said, we've been here a long time. it's time to go. >> shannon: you been at is more than 14 hours with two
breaks. >> you know what? this is what we do. if you've been a legislator before, you are going to have one day. i've been in legislative bodies where you've gone through the night. like i say, shannon, this was not going to take too much longer to have the votes on the underlying impeachment, the resolution itself. and divide the question, wouldn't of taken too much longer. >> shannon: looking to see if democrats want to talk to us as well and explain our side on it. great to have you with us. get some rest. >> thanks, shannon. appreciate it. >> shannon: major reactions to the debate. president trump and the adjoining intimate hearing. we'll have a vote. stick around. so, we got jean-pierre. but one thing we could both agree on was getting geico to help with renters insurance. ♪ yeah, geico did make it easy to switch and save.

suddenly blew the deal up. what's your feel on the hill? >> you know, the one thing that probably would've been sent by the republicans and just being too enough of these markups and sessions with democrats and republicans on a litany of issues is the republicans would've criticized them for voting at the witching hour, saying it's too late, it's the dead of night, trying to bury it, they are embarrassed. now what's going to happen and this is going to be the republican talking point tomorrow morning is that they are voting on the articles of impeachment to get them out of the committee on friday the 13th. they are also going to point out that they pass the actual resolution codifying the impeachment investigation on halloween. republicans are going to criticize this in their wake. they are going to criticize us when it comes on the floor. here's what we have to look at as they move to the next step of mechanics. they probably have to set this up going through what we call the rules committee here on capitol hill. that's the gateway for the house
floor. 1998, the judiciary committee just brought it up on the house floor and they got the agreement to debate the articles of impeachment against president clinton over a period of two days, 18 hours. by going to the rules committee, they actually establish the parameters of how they are going to consider this, how many hours, and lock this down. even though things are hot in 1998, they know there's not much comedy playing the sound bite with hank johnson from the others. >> shannon: i want to put this list of the 3 31 house democrats in districts that were won by president trump. there is a big decision tonight. we hear that some of them may be wavering. i don't know. >> i've heard anywhere, 7-10 wavering to vote against. they here's the problem. in their districts, the swing voters who elected them are pretty strongly against impeachment. they don't see the point that they'd much rather focus on the real problems, facing
health care, climate change, job creation, then impeachment. at the same time, the people that funded them and support them from the speaker on down all want as close to unanimous vote on impeachment as possible. the poor between the constituents, those that elected them and the leadership, which can keep them in office. they are going to have a tough choice. my bet is the vast majority vote for impeachment. >> shannon: the conversation continues to be any bipartisanship, and he democrats will come over with the republicans to bow out of this, no we are starting to look at the senate to see if there may be a couple there who are thinking about doing it or whether republicans are risking losing a couple of their members over the senate if it goes to trial? >> i think if this is bipartisan it's against impeachment. we can talk about the politics involved. but the bottom line involved for america that you need to know is that this is absolutely fundamentally against our rule
of law and the against the constitution. they should not be about politics, it should not be about hatred of president trump. it should not be about an ouster. there should be about upholding and protecting the rule of law. when you talk about their oath of office, each of those democrats, jerry nadler and adam schiff, the oath of office talks about enemies both foreign and domestic. they are domestic enemies of the u.s. on the u.s. quantitation -- >> that's a little too much. >> they are going against the u.s. constitution by having these ridiculous -- we've seen that. they want the camera optics tomorrow, they just don't care about the g.o.p. minority. this is absolutely fundamentally against the constitution and oath of office because they do not have a basis for high crimes and misdemeanors. the reason for that is because you've seen that throughout the entire scope of these hearings. >> shannon, look, these are not
enemies of the constitution. >> absolutely they are! >> people disagree. we resolve things through votes and the elections. >> let it go to the court, let it go to the supreme court. tell jerry nadler that and tell the democrats that. we need to allow due process to happen. >> shannon: this is not a traditional court setting, we'll watch a therapy thank you all very much. boris johnson taking the general election not by a slim margin, but a landslide. the leader of the u.k. brexit party nigel for odd standing by. nigel farage standing by.

britain will finally exit the european union, or brexit. the latest exit poll showing that boris johnson's tory party will get as many as 368 seats in the house of commons. opposition labor party will get as few as 192 seats. that is a bigger margin than had been projected. it's called a vindication of johnson's decision to call an early election as well as a run on the slogan of "get brexit done." the vote to leave the european union in 2016 but has been struggling to get a deal. he was a little bit of what boris johnson had to say tonigh. >> the people of this country turning out to vote in a december election that we didn't want to call which i think has turned out to be a historic election. >> this night has been a big defeat for the hard left labour party leader jeremy corbyn for he had some radical positions
that cause problems also declared that we live in the greatest democracy in the world. president trump might add for his friend that one or two ago great democracies. >> shannon: greg palkot on a breezy monday. the u.k.'s messy divorce with the european union dragged on for years now but will the anticipated majority pull bracket across the finish line? joining me now is the leader of the brexit party nigel farage. are you still celebrating? >> it's been a big night tonight for leave. people voted for leave three and a half years ago that we did it and the metropolitan elite in
westminster, the buildings behind me right now did their best to delay it, frustrated, stop it, and tonight people stated, to hell with this, we voted leave, we want to leave. big victory for brexit. it's a huge defeat for corbyn's form of marxist socialism. not just the anti-semitism you mentioned but anti-americanism which has been very prevalent in the labor leader's campaign. where we are now, it's a lot better than where we could have been first thing this morning. >> shannon: last i heard yesterday, i heard a lot of chatter about polls and how close this was in the latest results i've seen, it doesn't look like it's been that close. >> no, it is in close. bear in mind, this is our fourth major election in five years. three general elections in five years. and a referendum. with a majority government, i think what you will see is some
political stability coming back into the united kingdom. look, i -- i'm not happy with the deal on the table that boris has got for the european union for there are battles ahead as to how we do brexit. but the one thing for certain is we are leaving the european union on the 31st of january. for me, who's fought for this for over 25 years, for much of that time, i might add, all i can add it is thank goodness. >> shannon: jerry dunlevy, a reporter for the "washington examiner" tweets this out, says, "the victory looks like the biggest tory win since margaret thatcher in the 1980s, may even end up bigger. we'll see how accurate the exit polls are it looks like radical socialism and antisocialism are not big winners. also brexit almost guaranteed now." the ap reporting on it, "between one try to focus the campaign away from brexit and on its radical domestic agenda, vowing to tax the rich, nationalized industries such as railroads and
water companies, give everybody in the country free internet access. which part of that equation do you think was the most effective to drive folks come out and support conservatives in what appears to be overwhelming numbers? >> a lot of these people are not natural conservative voters peer they are doing it on the issue of brexit. brexit is the most important political decision that we've had in this country. perhaps for hundreds of years. and on the issue of the day, boris had a message, get brexit done. again, i can question the sincerity but i can question its simplicity. jeremy corbyn said, we'll negotiate a new deal and give you a second referendum. whatever he tried to do, in the end he said, no, it's brexit that's got to be sorted out. and it's brexit that has defined this election and after three and a half years of being frustrated by our career
politicians, our liberal elites, it's a great victory tonight for ordinary people. >> shannon: a lot of people are taking note there are americans and politicians who try to get involved in this period very quickly, charlie cook tweeting u.k. conservatives are marching towards a historic majority, total repudiation of the socialist agenda pushed by corbyn and the socialist elite. we won't let you destroy our civilization. very quick final comment from you, nigel? >> big take-out as you look forward to november 2020 when you have a hard left leader. in our case of the labour party, in your case it could be the democrats. the further left they go, the better bottle trump would do in november 2020. >> shannon: thank you for staying up late early, whatever it is there. thank you so much. it's been a busy night here in washington. we were watching as we were expecting a vote for articles of impeachment, broken up about
