2:38 am
what's the strategy at this point? >> what's important for viewers to remember is up until this point in the democratic primary it's almost been this who can take on trump best one on one and who can maybe eengage thane attacks that have made him such a sensation and joe biden, what he showed in his rally yesterday, was that he and his team actually really edo believe that policy is going to be what sets a contender against president trump apart. joe biden is not the first one to lay out an education plan. bernie sanders has done that. i saw a report recently that over 250,000 people have already logged on to elizabeth warren's website to see how much student debt would be forgiven under her own plan. so this is something voters are engaging with and i think you're having biden stradlers banking on the fact that if they let

2:41 am
days of his presidency and i will never forget him looking at reporters saying i'm not going to answer questions about his tweets and they said why not? and he said because i choose not to. you're not going to get him to apologize for what might be perceived as a 180. if this is something important to voters, it's incumbent upon democratic candidate taz make this an issue that stays alive well into 2020. >> not dpleer the supreme court will become can a 2020 issue and the michigan republican continues to stay on the attack against what the president did in obstructing justice according to volume two and here's what he said in a town hall with michigan voters yesterday. >> clearly things that violate the public trust are impeachable. i'm confident if you read volume

2:43 am
thinking more seriously about impeachment and listening to people and say the house oversight committee and the democratic party ewho are eager to impeach but having leaders like nancy pelosi say this is what trump wants. this is what he wants to divide the country. what amash is doing is stepping forward as the lone republican and saying here point by point is why i think the president obstructed justice and why i think this attorney yeneral is not acting in the best interest of ohis country. what you might see is not necessarily him providing cover for more republicans to come forward but higher ranking officials in the democratic partedy actually get on board with moving forward with impeachment proceedings. >> be interesting to know how many members of congress actually read the mueller report. we may never know. ta they're back in session monday. and reading it or reading
