♪ ♪ ed: that sounded a little bit like jed. [laughter] jedediah: fantastic. i woke up, i decided i wanted to take an a apple to work. i i take out a steak knife because i don't know how else to cut an apple, and the steak knife falls right on my toe. luckily, i do not have a severedded toe, but i'm here, it's wrapped, and we're going to do the best we can with. pete: i mean, she's playing hurt today.
you are. [laughter] jedediah: i'm doing -- tammy was nice must have to say, do you want to skip it? i said, you know what? i'm not letting a toe get me down. ed: she's a gamer. pete: toe stabbing. jedediah: wow, she doesn't know enough to cut an apple with a steak knife. pete: steak knives cut everything. jedediah: and i just want to point out, if you don't know much about pete, this sums him up right now, his diet mountain dew and his coffee -- pete: that's the first thing that heads my lips every morning, and it's a fuel. jedediah: i'm surprised you don't have pizza on the side. pete: give it four hours. ed: all right. we're going to have a lot of fun. we'll be down on fox square, we'll be working out, and we'll also have a very serious breaking news alert overnight. pete: nypd officer killed in the line of duty. ed: gunned down during a struggle with a suspect in the
bronx here in new york city. jedediah: jackie has the details. >> reporter: good morning. the officer and two others were responding to reports of gang activity in the bronx. as the officer tried questioning a man, he wound up in what's being described as a violent hand to hand struggle on the ground. at some point he reportedly said he's reaching for it, he's reaching for it. five shots were fired from his gun. the suspect was killed, the officer later died at the hospital. still unclear who fired the weapon. mayor bill de blasio and the nypd addressing the tragedy a short time ago. listen. >> this is a very, very sad day for our city. we lost a hero by every measure. we lost a hero. >> tonight is a vivid example of the dangers new york city cops face every single day, and there's never a doubt that our officers will continue to put it all on the line to keep people safe.
jedediah: the officer spent more than six years with the nypd and leaves behind a girlfriend who was also on the force. this just a day after a houston area sheriff's deputy was also killed in the line of duty, making the new york officer the 33rd to be shot and killed in the line of duty this year alone. as for the suspect who was on probation for a far cot you cans-related -- narcotics-related arrest, he had several priors. ed: we're going to talk about the race for tunnels to towers this morning, and there was a woman, a police officer, whose husband was also a police officer down in florida and had been gunned down a year or so ago. she was on stage with three young daughters, and you think about the 33 police officers all across this country who have been killed this year alone leaving behind young colleagues, families, it just breaks your heart. pete: it really does. jedediah: the choices today make every day, you forget about it
oftentimes. you kind of forget that somewhere people is calling for help, and these people are rushing out thinking about how to protect and save someone on the other end, and it takes a great deal of courage and honor not only for them, but for their families who are sitting at home and probably worry about them every single day. pete: yeah, you're right. in a few moments we've got a representative from the minneapolis police department where politics is coming into play because donald trump is going to minneapolis to do a rally in about a week, and pit turns out mayors like to dabble in the police departments. we'll bring that to you as a well. ed: we should instead be focusing on supporting these men and women in blue. in the mean time, we've been talking a lot about impeachment, and about how democrats led by speaker nancy pelosi have suddenly gone on offense. well, the president is trying to steal it back. he went on offense late last night, a whole series of tweets
in which, among other things, he called democrats savages and also warned them that previous witch hunts, as he calls them, have gone up in flames, have wound up in ashes, he said. pete: yeah. he posted this video on twitter yesterday. watch. >> take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges. they want to take away everything. we can never let this happen. we're fighting to train the swamp, and that's exactly what i'm doing, and you see why we have to do it. because our country is at stake like never before. it's all very simple. they're trying to stop me because i'm fighting for you. and i'll never let that happen. pete: you know, it's a really basic message, but it is a message that will less name. we have got a one -- bunch of guests that are going to reinforce the idea that for grassroots trump supporters this moment, like the kavanaugh
moment, after the seminal moment where you see the swamp and his opponents rearing up with what they believe to be the falsed allegations -- false a allegations based on a certain view, based on a a bunch of people who have access to knowledge and intelligence, and they manipulate the media -- media happy to do it because they're in the bag for them -- and it creates a controversy. here we are on the weekend, and we go where's the controversy? the whistle whistleblower's acta leaker who got a special status. what he said was going to happen didn't happen, if now we're going to impeach this guy? jedediah: yeah. and the president also tweeting it's disgraceful what the do-nothing democrats are doing in the impeachment scam, but also disgraceful what they are not doing, namely usmca, prescription drug prices, gun safety, infrastructure and much more. they're not focused on the issues. it went from russia, collusion to obstruction to now this issue on ukraine. and some democrats, by the way,
hoping for that recession as a means to defeat the president. but i think when he does these videos it's really impactful because that's how he got elected. he made his arguments strict to the people. he was known as a buck the establishment kind of guy, and he's just saying, listen, i'm here, i'm working. you're keeping more of your hard earned cash, you're able to open your businesses because of the deregulation. you know what i'm doing based on the issues, and you also know this is a game of distraction, and i think that will appeal to a lot of independent voters around the country who are tired of hearing about um peachment. i -- impeachment. when you have something real and tangible, let me know, but i'm just not seeing it, and they're not all republicans. ed: we've got a monster show, a lot of bests that are going to break this down, mark levin -- jedediah: great one. ed: the great one. devin nuñes, front and center on the house intelligence committee, he's got a hot to say.
in the meantime, democrats pushing back on the president's twitter video, saying it was full of twisted words about them taking away health care and the rest. we can debate that all morning. but it's interesting, because there may be something to what pete was saying about that basic message of the president saying that democrats are focused on oh things he's focused on fight ifing on the people. the democrats are getting nervous about this impeach. push, and nancy pelosi hearse is saying, look, it might blow up in our face, we may lose control of the house. watch. >> moderator: do you have any anxiety at all about any of the stuff we're talking about or anything that we're not talking about impacting your ability to hold control of the house in 2020? >> doesn't matter. our first responsibility is to protect and defend the constitution -- [applause] people say you have to take a political risk doing that. that doesn't matter. that doesn't matter, because we cannot have a president of the united states undermining his
oath of office, his loyalty is to his oath of office. undermining our national security and undermining the integrity of our election. ed: do not forget that she said, alleged in the middle of in that the president undermined his oath 24 hours before the transcript of the call came out. to those talking points have been used even before we knew some of the basic facts of this story. and i noted the 2020 democrats. it's not just nancy pelosi. andrew yang was on the trail saying, look, every day he said we as democrats talk about the president trump, it's a good day for him. that's pretty interesting. jedediah: the idea that she's like, well, we have to take the high road, you know? the i mean, it's laughable. for a long time she did not endorse impeachment because she knew it could hurt her party. bottom line is nancy pelosi got bullied by the far-left wig of her party -- wing of her party,
she caved, and she knows there could be potential consequences. but this idea of like, oh, i'm holier than thou, the democrats have to stand up for america, it's nonsense. you should be talking about the issues and not -- pete: absolutely. totally vague terms because their russia thing didn't work for years, now this ukraine thing's falling apart, and suddenly we have to believe that nancy pelosi's some sort of mega-patriot with the constitution tattooed on her? ed: like you? pete: let's leave that aside. to your point, ed, it is democrats now worried about the fact that if you're running an election against a sitting president and the only pg thing you've talked about is impeachment and resistance, what are people actually voting for? well, one of those third tear candidates still running with no chance of winning is cory booker. but he did let out some truth yesterday. >> i worry that this election is being overshadowed by all that's going on, by impeachment
proceedings, being overshadowed by the news of the day, being overshadowed by some toxic twitter toiling teenage-like stuff. pete: what's interesting and revealing, these eye guys are -- this is a a moment in time for cory booker. he's been running for president since he was 13 years old. he goes we're talking about this impeachment stuff, this is my moment, so it's selfish for him, but it is true for the electorate. ed: it's taken them two and a half years to figure out all they do is talk about trump? jedediah: also, interestingly enough, booker's fundraising goal is under by 400,000. how can i make a heline, how can i become -- heldline, how can i become relevant. all right, we're going to head to some headlines.

fourth term in the once deep red state of texas. john yancy, a self-described reagan republican -- mark yancy joins us live. good morning, mark. >> good morning. thank you for having me. ed: it's good to talk to you. we've had senate senator cornyn on many tiles, we'll have him on in the future, but what is your rationale for taking him on, he's seen as a conservative stalwart. so what is your rationale? >> well, we have numerous polls, myself, my campaign, we've been working on this for some time. we believe that senator cornyn has lost his republican conservative values over the, particularly over the last tree tree -- three and a half, four years or so. and that's evident by by the
amount of national debt we have. as you know, the federal government on monday will have somewhere north of $22 trillion in national debt. senator cornyn signed off on the $2.7 trillion spending bill. that also extends the debt ceiling for the two years. my, i'm running because i think that senator cornyn has chosen politics and hyperpartisan over policy, and the people of texas -- ed: okay, let's break that down. i understand the rationale being debt which is an issue that a lot of republicans in washington can talk about now, so maybe you can challenge senator cornyn on the idea he hasn't cut spending enough. he's been leading the effort to cut taxes, cut government regulations. i assume you like that. and he was one of the folks on the judiciary committee leading the fight for judge kavanaugh to become justice kavanaugh, so how do you back up the idea that
he's lost his conservative way? >> well, look, i mean, he's -- look at his voting record. i mean, if we'd have gone back to the tax bill that was passed in 2017 of which senator cornyn, both of our senators voted for, i would have been in support of that. but i would have done is i would have looked at the 39.1% down to 21% and found a compromise of perhaps something a little higher than that that. ed: let me get one other question in here. he cut corporate taxes bigtime there, which i assume a lot of republicans like. but let me let you make your final point as i ask you i see you say he's gotten too close to president trump. is that going to help you in a republican primary to say he's too close to the president? >> look, i'm a republican, president trump is a republican. what i mean -- i'm not sure what you're referring to, but what i
mean by that is that, is that, look, you -- we don't really know where senator cornyn stands on many issues until after a vote is cast, and then we find out where senator cornyn stands. so we need to understand before the vote is taken, and most of this is of senator cornyn, look, he's walked in lockstep with the president and mitch mcconnell. ed: all right. we appreciate it. you've got a press release saying he's been in strong alignment with mitch mcconnell, president trump, that's what i was referring to. we appreciate you coming in, and we'll have you on in the days ahead. the mayor bans police officers from wearing uniforms around official candidates. we'll talk to police official who's outrage ared next.

visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in minneapolis. this as the city's police lieutenant is outraged over what he said is a sudden change in policy by the mayor prohibiting officers from wearing uniforms when with a political candidate. joining me with more is president of the police officers federation of minneapolis and minneapolis police department lieutenant, bob krol. what you're saying is the president of the united states is coming to minneapolis to give a speech. things have changed there for the mayor and the police department. share it with our viewers. >> good morning. pete: good morning. >> within hours of the president making an announcement that he's going to have a rally in minneapolis, the mayor came out with the statement, you know, in portion which you just read. basically saying, you know, he's not welcome here, which is ridiculous, because this is a lot in minnesota beyond the city of minneapolis to begin with.
but for decades the police federation has been allowed to appear in political ads, align themselves with political parties for our enforcement, and, you know, for many decades when you look back because of the labor, you know, the labor presence unions have supported the dfl. and in the past it's never been a problem, and minneapolis has been a democrat city for decades. now, it's never been a problem, but because they've kind of turned their backs on, you know, the polices and many other working people, we've shifted gears, and we've been endorsing republicans for the last several years. so now they've said no longer can you wear your uniform to support your political candidates. in the past, i had to give notice to the chief that we'd appear and we could wear our uniform and support a party or a candidate, and that's now prohibited. peter: ah-- >> within hours of the president announcing he's coming here. pete: within hours. so you've always been allowed to do so. now the democrats have turned
their backs, as you said, against democrats to republicans who actually support cops n. this particular case, what has changed? can police officers go inside the venue in uniform? how does this affect the president's visit? >> well, because of the antifa and a lot of protesters, obviously, they're going to have uniformed officers to insure security because these types of events get violent. people are actually afraid to come to to the rally, we've hada lot of violence up to town. so there will be uniformed personnel assigned, but they cannot appear on stage or in the backdrop of the president which would happen under -- pete: you have to hide? so this is the issue. police officers in minneapolis, when the president of the united states shows up to do a rally, they basically have to stay the off camera, have to be ashamed of the fact that they wear the uniform. >> that's exactly it. and if you look back in the path when bill clinton appeared here,
he was lined with blue because they directed our officers, against their will, to be behind him in the backdrop. they made sure they had a diverse looking crew of uniformed officers behind bill clinton when he was here. and this one is exactly the opposite with president trump coming. pete:9 i don't even know what to say. the reality is law enforcement protects everybody, republican or democrat. you have a president of the united states, duly elected, but your mayor has decided i'm happy to use cops as props if it's a democrat, but if they happen to be in a picture with president trump, then that's making a political statement. how does that, how does that make you feel and those who serve who probably appreciate what this president does for the police? >> well, you know, myself and the membership has been -- we really embrace what the president's done for law enforcement. under the obama administration, there was an anti-police rhetoric like you would not believe, and our president's proven he stands the with police
and military. it's self-explanatory. so my members are outraged. a lot of them want to be there. they want to be in the back drop, have an opportunity to meet him. he's shown that he's a very pro-law enforcement president. pete: when they actually want to stand with the president, they're not allowed torque otherwise they're forced to as props. lieutenant, thank you very much for your service to minneapolis. by the way, we reached out to the mayor for a statement regarding the new uniform policy of the minneapolis police department, and we have yet to hear back. not surprising. shrinking from this one. all right, well, this story will make your day. our next guest nearly missed her cancer treatment, so new york city police officers came to the rescue. we'll take you what they did, coming up next. ♪ orlando isn't just the theme park capital of the world, it also has the highest growth in manufacturing jobs in the us. it's a competition for the talent. employees need more than just a paycheck.

hillary clinton in 2016. that's the unpardonable sin for which the democrats will never forgive him. and i do want to make this prediction this morning. if the democrats have successful in removing the president from office, i'm afraid it will cause a civil war-like fracture in this nation from which this country will never heal. ed: pastor, what about the previous part of nancy pelosi's statement before she talked about being prayerful, real quick, she said we're not joyful with. can we take that seriously when some members of her caucus day one of the new congress said let's impeach the blank? they seemed pretty happy about it. >> oh, they are thrilled. they cannot contain their glee over this. i've been asked the question what should we, as christians, do. i think we ought to pray too, but we ought to do more than just pray, we ought to take action. and that means calling our representatives and urging them to stand with this president. daniel 11:32 says the people who
know their god shall stand firm and take action. it's time to take action. pete: it's a race to honor our bravest, tunnels to towers is about to get underway here in new york city. ed: rob schmidt and steven siller's brother frank are going to join us live next. ♪ ♪ (cow mooing) idle equipment costs you time and money.

investigated. speaking with reuters from moscow, in particular it's important to find out what work hunter biden actually did for a ukrainian gas company to justify being paid $50,000 a month. quote: if using his knowledge he played an active role, then there's nothing scandalous about it, but if he was simply on the books and getting money, then that can be seen as a violation of the law. the former prime minister fled ukraine in 2014 against uprisingsings by the russian government that was in power at the time. he is wanted for things including embezzlement. democratic candidates are responding to the allegations against former vice president joe binden including kamala harris who calls it a distraction from president trump's wrongdoing. >> if you're elected president, would you -- [inaudible] serve on the board of an oil company outside this country? >> probably not. the problem that we've got,
again, with this eshoo is that it's a distraction from the fact that, look, as far as i'm concerned, leave joe biden alone. >> reporter: regarding the whistleblower's complaint against president trump, a new report from the federalist claims as recently as last month the intelligence community secretly revived its whistleblower complaint form to eliminate a requirement of firsthand knowledge of wrongdoing which, if true, is significant given that much of the whistle-blower's information was is secondhand and would not have met the previous requirements for an urgent concern. jedediah: yeah, leave joe biden alone. jedediah: what does that even mean? kamala harris was the one going after joe biden the most in that first debate. she was right on him talking about race relations, she was taking those digs, she knew he was the front-runner, now all of a sudden it's leave joe biden alone? this is my problem with her. she's a smart woman, very well-spoken, she's a former prosecutor, i get it, but i
don't believe anything that she says. pete: i don't know that she does either. ed: she defending him or sort of poking him? because she's saying leave him alone, you know, the poor guy. it suddenly leaves out there the idea that joe biden's got some problems politically as well, and remember the beginning part of that sound bite where she didn't say that she would allow a son or daughter, and elizabeth warren was asked that a few days ago and said, no, i wouldn't allow a -- so they're getting out the message that what joe biden did as vice president maybe wasn't that good which is the message the president's trying to put out there. in fact, the president was on twitter with a new video hammering the democrats. watch. >> the democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges. they want to take away everything. we can never let this happen. we're fighting to drain the swamp, and that's exactly what i'm doing. and you see why we have to do
it, because our country is at stake like never before. it's all very simple. they're trying to stop me because i'm fighting for you. and i'll never let that happen. pete: you know, one thing garrett tenney mentioned at the end of his report, there are increasing reports that the whistleblower standards were changed very recently. it used to have to be you have to have firsthand knowledge. and for whatever reason, we don't know -- i'm happy to give a little speculation -- they were changed very recently, posted very recently just before this complaint came out to saying secondhand knowledge is okay if you know about something that's going on. it leads a lot of us to speculate who knew about this and when, and what this guy does not deserve a whistleblower title. it's used by the media to give him credibility. this is someone who used a process to leak, used other people who gave him knowledge. if you're a leaker, you're discredited. if you're a whistleblower -- ed: well, the inspector general
said there's -- pete: and partisan perspective -- ed: and that there was partisan bias against the prime minister. pete: you're right. there's just a lot of questions. and for people out there watching who say i've found this media coverage to be a bit out front of the facts of what we actually know. jedediah: yeah. and it's interesting some democrats have already decided, oh, let me launch this um peachment initiative. now you have some democrats, bernie sanders in particular, who have decided, guess what? maybe let's act like trump's been impeached already. he's got a bold post on instagram saying bernie beats trump or pence. [laughter] put pence in there just as a caveat. that's essentially bernie sanders saying, hey, i'm on the impeachment bandwagon and maybe i'll be running against pence instead of trump.
pete: at the beginning of this campaign -- ed: oh, we didn't bet. pete: i thought it was bernie sanders versus the field. ed: you picked bernie sanders as the nominee. pete: yeah, i just thought -- ed: any other democrat gets it -- pete: no, i'm going to be writing you a check. it's clear are, everyone's surpassed him. he's a little crank key. he's yesterday, he was the original ganger the -- ed: gangster. [laughter] you say it with love. pete: gangsters can be good guys too. and elizabeth warren has surpassed him, joe biden as well. so he's playing to a base that wants to below that trump can just disappear. ed: i've got news for them, because maybe the president never even faces a trial in the senate even if the house votes to impeach. there is, there are now people looking closely at the constitution, and it turns out mitch mcconnell could end up giving in the merrick garland
treatment. politico had a headline about this, and they say it's on track to be the trial of the century. president donald trump fighting to keep his job before a jury of 100 senators. it could also never happen. of that's because of a constitution that designates the senate with the, quote-unquote, sole power to try an impeachment that comes from the house, but nowhere in america's founding document is the trial said to be a mandatory act what that means is the house can vote to impeach if, but then there would be a trial where you either convict or not. that's where you remove the president. so people confuse it and say he's impeached so he's out. no, no, no. you're impeached -- if they do it, if there's a majority vote in the house -- and then the senate has to eventually have a trial. but the constitution leaves it open as the sole authority of the senate, is so mitch mcconnell can say i'm not starting a trialful we're going to focus on the economy, health care, you guys want to talk about gun control, there's all these issues out there that i thought the democrats were
elected on in 2018. so you go do your impeachment charade, but i'm not starting a trial. and that will infuriate the democrats even more. jedediah: we have some big guests on that. mark levin will be on with us, he has plenty to say about what's going on. we also have representative devin nuñes, republican from california, ranking member of the house intel committee, so we're going to be talking a lot about was this a smart move for nancy pelosi? what could happen as a result when it comes to elections in the house and the presidential election, and is there a case for impeachment here? some are arguing over is there a case? i don't see it. pete: you know, a lot of people, a lot of conservatives were critical of mitch mcdonnell for a long time. -- mcconnell for a long time. then it came to brett kavanaugh and gore such and merrick garland and over 150 other federal judges. i would not be surprised if the constitution does not require if he looks at the lewin is city of this impeachment and says not my
business. ed: he could care less. pete: they call him, he's got, the shirts calling him cocaine mitch. he doesn't care. jedediah: you guys know i love to talk about academia.

i didn't believe in his impeachment either, but when they did go through a process with him, he actually got to point where he lost his law license. but you will notice that he still didn't go, wasn't removed from congress as serious as that was. jedediah: congressman, are you concerned about the potential implications of this on the house elections and on the presidential election in 2020? >> well, sure. i mean, you have to be concerned about that, and you also have to be concerned, which is most important, getting good stuff done; health care, veterans' concerns, social security, medicare, the debt, the deficit, a whole host of -- we could go on and on and on, infrastructure. that's what we should do. now, something else turns up that we haven't seen that is extraordinary, then that's a different story. but right at this point we need to get good stuff done. let the people, let the people impeach. let the people vote are. if they want to vote 'em out, we're going to have an election.

♪ ♪ and now it's do-or-die ♪ i am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable -- ed: the president is invincible or not because the democrats thought they had him cornered a lot of times and i tell you, all solicited up. jedediah: do you think his invincible? let me guess how pete feels about this. pete: this is a great question though. who do you know in your life or who do you know in politics that could have sustained what this president has sustained from all sides over this much time? ed: that might be a party of on. pete: it might be a party of one one. no, seriously, when you love him or hate hill the reality is this
guy he barely sleeps, he fights back on his twitter account, he's been attacked not just from outside the media and democrats but also establishment republicans as well as even people inside his own administration. jedediah: i think the key is -- you hit the nail on the head -- he has a different approach to politics. he he will come out, he will tweet, he will come on, to wit, he will post videos, he will go directly to the people. we have an example of that actually. take a look president trump talking about why he is fighting for you and democrats are trying to obstruct that. >> the democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges, they want to take away everything. we can never let this happen. we're fighting to drain the swamp, and that's exactly what i'm doing. and you see why we have to do it it. because our country is at stake like never before. it's all very simple. they're trying to stop me because i'm fighting for you, and i'll never let that happen. ed: well, guess when that worked
worked? getting back to the invincible point, 2016 when the president, against all odds, said i'm fighting for the people, i've got the swamp, i've got the media, they're all lined up against me, he beat the bush machine, he beat the clinton machine, and now he's president. he's being pushed again. he maybe was on defense a few days. i think this yesterday on social media was part of him trying to get back on offense. he called democrats savages. he warned them, hey, previous witch hunts as he labels them a witch hunt, he says they've all gone up in smoke. and he added this: it's graceful what the do nothing democrats are doing, the impeachment scam. but it's also disgraceful what they're not doing, the trade vote, prescription drugs, gun safety, infrastructure, and more more. how he turned it around in the last few weeks, democrats say president done nothing on gun control, he's done nothing on this, health care was the big issue they carried the banner on in 2018 and republicans admitted after that election they need to go a better job on that and yet
the democrats have been in power in the house for many months and have done very little on all those issues. jedediah: talking about impeachment and brett kavanaugh, that seems to be all they can talk about. also what's interesting is when they bring up the issues -- and some like elizabeth warren will bring up the issues -- some of their suggestions are so completely extreme, either it's so liberal utopia that exists where money grows on trees ú la bernie sanders and it's completely something that you could never enact actually it looked like ú la the green new deal, or it's something that people just don't want to get behind like giving up their private health insurance or having middle class tax hikes in order to pay for something. so solutions that they are putting on the table are not going to be palatable to a lot of the country. pete: yeah, and the difference between 2016 that you mentioned, ed, and 2020 is it's a promises made election versus a promises kept election. and i think the president's supporters if they had seen him cave, i'm giving up on the wall, moderate judges, i'm not going to fail on if i could say the military, visiting the v.a., they'll say you're like every
other politician. his supporters say despite the resistance he's continued, the investigations, the courts, the ninth circus tries to undo everything he ever does, and his support has been strong as it's ever been amongst republicans. i'm going to keep it brief because later in this hour you've got mark levin as you call him and america calls him " "the great one." we're saving time now so he has more time as well as representative devin nunes, republican from california, as stuff in washington heats up he's in the middle of it as wel. ed: and you've got to wonder if the democrats are having second thoughts about going all-in on impeachm.nt jedediah: nancy pelosi is not one of those people. she actually has come around the other way. first she saw hesitant to back impeachment and now she's saying you know what? it's worth it it happen it's a nobler cause. it's even worth losing the house in 2020. take a listen. >> do you have any anxiety at all about any of the stuff that we're talking about or anything that we're not talking about impacting your ability to hold control of the house in 2020?
>> doesn't matter. our first responsibility is to protect and defend the constitution. people say you have to take a political risk doing that. that doesn't matter. that doesn't matter. because we cannot have a president of the united states undermining his oath of office, his loyalty, his oath of office, undermining our national security and undermining the integrity of our election. ed: so, yeah, maybe she's all-in now as you suggested, but i wonder if she's also wondering, how is this going to -- will it boomerang politically and will they lose the house? because you've got folks on the 2020 trail, andrew yang yesterday saying every day we spend talking about president trump he said hurts democrats. you had corey booker saying something similar that all the focus on trump he says might backfire on democrats. so, yeah, they're at the lower tier. they're not the frontrunners. but you got to wonder if some democrats are wondering whether the party is playing into the
president's hands. pete: remember obamacare, nancy pelosi famously said we got to pass the bill to find out what's in it. she now says we got to impeach trump to find out why. it's the same idea here. the tail is wagging the dog here here. the evidence isn't there but the energy is amongst the base that rabidly hates the president so she's been dragged along to do this impeachment inquiry including the very foolish step of announcing it the day before she got the transcript which means it was wrapped in fervor as opposed to facts or the constitution as megapatriot nancy pelosi. ed: and why did he have to, adam schiff, make up the transcript? you got to wonder, a democrat, jeff van drew, he was in the house, he was on the show last hour, he came on and said i'm not buying it, he said, i'm not seeing high crimes and misdemeanors. watch. >> ic that's that's like swirling around us now with impeachment, we talk about it day and night, it's what's on the news, and frankly i think
it's fine if they still want to continue to have the type of investigations they did to see if something new turns up. there is nothing that has turned up that truly is impeachable. we all must remember that impeachment was something that our founding fathers set to be rare, extremely aurora, but right point we need to get good stuff done. let the people impeach, let the people vote. if they want to vote him out, we're going to have an election very shortly. ed: nothing has turned up that is impeachable, says a democrat in the house. that's his quote. jedediah: one person who has been out there talking quite a bit, guess what she said? hillary clinton has been doing some interviews, she's been calling the president corrupt be she has been talking about how 2016 was an illegitimate election. well, guess what the spotlight's also back on her 'cause the state department is stepping up its investigation into her emails once again. this is a headline from the washington post: state department questions more than 100 former clinton aides about emails and a quote from a senior
state department official from that washington post article, this has nothing to do with who is in the white house. this is about the time it took to go through millions of emails which is about three and a half years. it is stunning to me that she got away with the behavior that she got away with to begin with but, i mean, there still could be some consequences for her her her. i still can't believe that you could take jackhammers to hard drives and athlete 30,000 plus emails and she's out there saying -- pete: hold on. keep that film up there. someone i knew close to was ask will.it ed: i asked her whether she wiped the server, and she said with a cloth? that was the orange pantsuit. pete: you were there on the front lines seeing this. august 2015 is when a lot of this came out, the investigation has carried since. and i'll be honest, i was totally naive to the fact that there was still an ongoing investigation. it might take three and a half years to go through millions of emails, and it's heartening at some level 'cause i'll believe it when i see actual justice that they're still actually
looking at into this because there's so many outside -- ed: her point is whether there's a two-tiered system of justice; right? that's what the president been trying to get at with ukraine and joe biden and hunter biden and go back to the emails as well, which is how did she get off the hook if you weren't supposed to have classified email on the server, you know, if you weren't supposed to have all these problems, deleted over 30,000 -- the democrats say, why in rearview mirror, turn the page on it. but there's people in the country wondering why she got off the hook. jedediah: we'll turn to some holds for you now. a cop killed in the line of duty overnight, officers lining up outside the hospital where officer brian mulkeen died. he was shot in a struggle with a suspect in the bronx the support was also killed. the nypd also finding this gun at the scene. >> very, very bad day for our city. we lost a hero by every measure. tragedies like this are not only an affront to the men and women

government, you know? and this is -- you're almost like an intern, you know? and you're expected to work long hours. you know, there are fewer skills and credentials -- ed: i hear you. you're supposed to work those long hours, no matter, but, on the other hand, these are democrat candidates who tout unions and we've got to be fair about this or that, and so they also have to sort of put up or shut up in terms of what they preach. bernie sanders had to actually cut hours to pay staffers to $15 minimum wage, the des moines register saying for a staffer working 40 hours a week that comes out to about $17 an hour but 40-hour work weeks or presidential campaigns are rare, he added. each week they'll make sure they're earning the equivalent $15 an hour. my question to you is what's good for the goose is good for the garden. they preach a good give me but when it come down to it, they don't want to give the same
benefits to their own employees, howie. >> exactly. according to the news stories, elizabeth warren's going to have a cap of 60 hours per week. how is that going to work? the campaign work seven days a week. that's less nine hours a day. and going to have paid holidays. i just looked it up. president's day, ed, this year is february 17th. right? february 17th. ed: right. >> the nevada caucuses are february 22nd. the south carolina primary is february 29th. who's taking a three-day weekend for president's day? that's ridiculous. ed: but businesses say this all the time as you know, howie, these are great grand plans, but in real life you can't always implement so we appreciate you actually coming in to talk about how difficult it is to implement and calling them out on it, howie. for condominium. >> my pleasure, ed. ed: army staff sergeant jimmy macnaughton laid down his life for our nation but a plan to re rename a street in his honor is getting denied by a local community board. this is unreal. his parents are here live with

either. it took 14 years. you know, the guys in jimmy's command helped push through and they kept at it, kept at it, margaret shin had a big play, the councilwoman from that area. she made it happen basically in my opinion, you know, but his disease from district 2, the captain, brian paul and all of them, they kept pushing this happen they weren't letting this go. jedediah: well, michelle, what is it like to finally get the sense of vindication that your son who laid down his life for this country so boldly, such a cherished member of our country, is finally going to get the honor he deserves? >> it's a relief. it's like a weight is lifted off of your shoulder. it's like you're carrying around a backpack waiting for it to happen. and no parent, no matter how their child should pass, wants their child forgotten. so this is a way of him being remembered. it sounds silly because it's just the street sign -- jedediah: it doesn't sound silly actually. i totally get it. and i think a lot of viewers get
it, .oo, >> but, you know, it's a relief. that's the only thing that i could say. like i can breathe now. it's like it's done. so -- jedediah: it's been a long time fight and kudos to both of you for staying strong in the fight and all the support that you've had around you. we are marking national gold star mothers and families day and i would love to remember your son's life, jimmy macnaughton so if you would both just share a little bit about your son and his service and some message for everyone out there who has been inspired by his life and his choices. we can start with you, michelle. >> jimmy was funny. jimmy was patriotic. i called them jimmy-isms, he would come home and say something, and i would be like " "what? i'm not sure what that meant." you know, it was before urban dictionary. so he was just funny like that. and his first tattoo was the american flag, you know, waving in the wind on his back shoulder like -- i was like, what? you can't holler at him. you know, it was -- and he just was so patriotic like if his friends -- if they were at a football game and they didn't take hat off he'd smack 'em in
the back of the head, be like the national anthem. you know, he believed in our country, he he believed in what he did and that was the important part. jedediah: bill, final words on your son? >> what i get, people come up to me and say how jimmy affected their life. and as a father, to me that's the most honorable thing you have. and that still happened today. i did my job, we did our job, you know what i mean? and it's -- that's -- you know, i got choked up even thinking about it, but that's so humbling to me how he took care of his men. that's i big thing. jedediah: thank you both for being here so much. congratulations on receiving that honor. >> thank you to fox for helping us fete the word out.

she's some kind of dictator and proclaimed that all of a sudden she has decided that the house of representatives will conduct a formal impeachment inquiry. but it's not the house of representatives that authorized that. she's picked six of her committee chairmen who are from new york, l.a., baltimore, and herself from san francisco to drive this. they want to do it fast, it's in all the newspapers, they want it all done by october so people can't really digest what's taking place, and then they want to throw it into the senate for a spectacle for a trial. and there's some talk on whether or not the senate has to actually have a trial under the constitution. this is where i want everyone to pay attention. the house decides it's impeachment process, the senate decides trials. i've studied this more than anybody else. i actually went back and read the andrew johnson trial, the trial, the actual transcript of the trial which you have to get out of the library of congress. in his case, he had, as i recall 11 charges against him.
they tried him on three, they came close to one in conviction, then they adjourned and they never brought back the other eight. they just dropped it because it was such a farce. now, in this case it's a complete farce because nancy pelosi has violated all the past processes by cutting out the house of representatives by a single member from san francisco and these other members driving an impeachment inquiry. the united states senate has never been faced with a situation like this in the past presidential impeachment situations, and it must not, it must not give a rubber stamp to a lawless action, in my view, or a process that at least undermines tradition that nancy pelosi has undertaken here. the united states senate must not and is not reward to say, " "you know what? we're going to take this up because the house sends it to us
us." it is poisoned the process from the get-go. here's why. nancy pelosi has a 37r majority in the house. i've been reading, there's ten or 12 members who didn't want to go along with that; so that gives her, what, 25, give or take? that means that the house actually voted on this, it would be as close to a 50-50 on an impeachment q as there has ever been. there has never been anything in close before because this is being driven for political reasons, not lawful reasons, not constitutional reasons. everything she's doing -- she even changed -- i wish we had a few real reporters out there, you know, other than you, ed, i wish we had a few reporters out there who would actually look at american history and actually also see that when nancy pelosi came into office, she changed the process for hearings. she changed the process for depositions in order to fast speed this stuff. so she has always wanted to, despite the fact, oh, nancy's holding back a.o.c. no answer is a.o.c. people say a.o.c. took over the
house. no, nancy's old nancy, she's a.o.c., she's just smarter than a.o.c., but dumber in this sense sense: she gave the united states senate every reason to say "you know what? we are not going to hold a trial based on what nancy pelosi decided and her violation of the history of american when it comes to impeachment." that's exactly what the senate should say. ed: mark, on that point; so you spent about five minutes on the process and attacking nancy pelosi. let's get to the substance -- >> i could spend a year on it, my friend. ed: i know you can. here's my question very simply. you say that nancy pelosi's been lawless. the democrats say the president is lawless, and they hold up this transcript. so let's get at the substance of their charge -- >> go for it, baby. ed: -- and whether or not something went wrong in the oval office. go for it. >> you know, ed, i've been watching you and a lot of reporters, and you haven't once asked for the identity of the so-called whistleblower. why is that? ed: i want to know the identity -- >> i want to know the identity. well, who's asking for it?
shouldn't -- hold on, now. ed: -- it's secondhand information, and is we'll find out who it is -- >> that's not the same thing -- ed, it's not the same thing as saying -- let me do it this way. i'm an american citizen. if this c.i.a. operative is going to be the guy that brings down my president, i want to know all about him. i want to know what kind of dogs they have, how many marriages they've had, if they have a dui, i want to know if they're a partisan, i want to know everything, like they do with everybody else the media. i want to know, this guy should be cross-examined -- what kind of a situation is this? we're going to bring down a president of the united states and the democrats are telling us we can't identify this guy 'cause his life might be in danger? and then everybody swings around his memo like it's the bible. i have a lot of questions about his memo! i don't need press people interpreting it for me. i can read it myself! i want to question this person about his memo. and as you've been told, everybody now for the last two
days, why is it that the c.i.a. changed its whistleblower policy in august when this letter is dated august 12th? under the former policy before august, under the former policy he's not a whistleblower, this isn't a whistleblower complaint, and nothing's sent to the united states congress. how did that happen like this? ed: those are all fair questions questions. so let's get to the point, then. what happened in the oval office on that call? was it illegal or not? >> well, we know it's not illegal. what crime was violated? can you name one? ed: i'm not naming 'em. i'm saying, others have suggested -- >> nobody's naming 'em. hold on, ed. ed: it's not about me. >> it's not illegal. the question is whether biden did something illegal. the president didn't do anything illegal. you know how i know? 'cause nancy pelosi's been on every tv show and she can't cite one section of the united states code where it's illegal. my question is why is joe biden above the law? why is his son above the law? where is hunter biden today?
where is the media? don't they want to know? don't they want to know if the leading contender for the democrat nomination is a crook and if his son is a crook? let me tell you about our president. we've had a special counsel with 2800 subpoenas and 500 search warrants and 500 witnesses, and ed? 13 requests of foreign governments for evidence by mueller. we've had four democrat senators senators. three wrote a letter to ukraine and said you damn well better help mueller investigate trump. one pressured them the other week and said, "you better not investigate biden." we know that. what do we know about joe biden and hunter biden? zero. ed: -- to dig up dirt on a candidate, you're okay with that that? pete: he's a former vice president. >> what dirt are you talking about? ed: the president of the united states. i'm not saying it's illegal -- are you okay with a president asking his counterpart -- this is a simply yes or no -- to dig up dirt on former vice president joe biden and his son? are you okay with that? >> first of all, your question
is not honest. so i don't give yes or no -- ed: that's a quote from the transcript, .ir, >> let me finish, ed. you have all morning. i have two minutes. it's not an honest question. show me in the transcript where the president said that. ed: well, i don't have it front of me -- >> nowhere. nowhere, ed. ed: -- there's a whole paragraph where he asked about joe biden. the president said -- >> so what he asked about joe biden. isn't he allowed to ask about joe biden? ed: the president said "a lot of people are wondering about the former vice president and his son's business deal." that's all i'm saying. there's no hidden question ther. >> actually not the way he put it either. what you ought to do, ed, what you ought to do is rather than restating it, put a graphic up and read.it ed: okay, we'll do it. >> what's the problem, ed, what's the problem with it? ed: i didn't say there was a problem. >> neither did i. >> what do you mean, is it okay? the question isn't prove a negative. the question is it's not illegal it's not immoral, it's not un unethical, and if you guys in the media would do your damn job and ask joe biden and hunter biden what the hell's going on,
maybe the president wouldn't have to raise the issue. why is the president having to raise the issue? and, by the way, he didn't raise it the way you said it. he said this has been raised, it was raised in the new york times it's been raised by peter schweitzer and so forth, and nobody wants to look into it. ed: well, mark -- >> instead now -- pete: don't they have to raise the issue precisely because of the book you wrote that's over your left shoulder on freedom of the press? i mean, the press is entirely un uninterested on the other side and instead bringing everything they can on speculation. we don't know anything. >> pete, let me tell you what the press has done. they lied about a quid pro quo. they lied about the president raising this eight times. they've laid about the president asking for a favor trying to tie it to joe biden when he was talking about the 2016 election. the american people detest media not because they oppose freedom of the press, but because they love freedom of the press. the media have taken sides here and what i'm saying is this is an utterly corrupt political,
partisan process. and it's about time we had some real reporters who would try to get to the bottom of this. jedediah: mark, if there is no -- i don't see any impeachable offense here. if democrats are unable to cite specificity when it comes to an impeachable offense, are they able to proceed with the impeachment pros, and and how will that be received by the public? >> first of all, nothing stops them, and what they're planning on doing -- let me tell you, they have issued hundreds of subpoenas. the media doesn't count them -- about his family, about his businesses, about his bank accounts. they took the mueller report and they turned it on its head, said look at all these examples of obstruction. and it goes on and on. what they're going to do is overwhelm the american people with what is a document for the media, because they know reporters are going to do whatever they want 'em to do, the reporters aren't serious. there's going to be a huge backlash in this country one way or the other. you can't disenfranchise 63 million people who are on to this, who have alternative forms of information. real cover-up here. gee, we have the letter and we have the transcripts, and all i
get are reporters trying to tell me what the transcript says as opposed to what i read with my own eyes and telling me it's the offense of the century that the president of the united states dares to mention something that's in the american newspapers to the ukrainian president. he doesn't say get biden, he doesn't say i'm digging up dirt on biden, he doesn't say do me a favor and get biden. he says, why don't you talk to my attorney general, look into this. people have questions. wow. and all the sleazy activity that's going behind the scenes. i want to know, i want to know if adam schiff and his staff, working with this phony whistleblower. i want to know who the lawyers are who helped him write that complaint, as i was the first to point out before. i want to know the whole activity that's taking place in the shadows of this government to try and bring down a president of the united states. things being done to this president that have never been done to prior presidents. where did they keep the transcript of the phone call? gives a damn! the president has a power to issue an executive privilege
order. doesn't matter if he kept it in his pillow. he can still protect that, but he didn't. he gave it up. ed: mark actually i got your quote so let me read it to you and let you respond. we got a minute. you wanted a quote he said to the call. "there's a lot of talk about biden's call to stop the prosecution, a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the attorney general would be great. biden went about bragging if you can stop the prosecution; so if you can look into into it. it sounds horrible to me." >> i don't have a problem with that. i don't understand. ed: i don't have a problem. >> ed, there was a video of biden. biden impugns himself. there's a video of biden. the new york times dropped its investigation of this. they're busy chasing, you know, racism in america, i guess. but they dropped their investigation of this. ed: yes. >> what should have happened is all reporters, i mean, they're pretty a gaggle, groupthink, should have said "wow. look what biden said."

nothing sand louse about it. but if he was simply on the books and getting money, then that could be seen as a violation of the law. it is important to note though that the prime minister himself is wanted by ukrainian authorities for alleged abuses of power including embezzlement. the former prime minister has been living in exile since 2014 when he fellowed the country. -- fled the country. democratic candidates are taking notice of the allegations against former vice president joe biden and his son. on saturday kamala harris called it a distraction that she would prevent from happening again. >> if you're elected president, would you allow the son or daughter of vice president serve on the board of an oil company outside of the country? >> probably not. but i think the problem that we've got, again, with this issue is that it's a distraction from the facts. look, as far as i'm concerned, leave joe biden alone. >> reporter: a number of republican lawmakers are now
demanding answers after a report by the federalist claimed that as recently as last month, just before the whistleblower filed their complaint, the intelligence community changed its whistleblower rules to allow secondhand information to be used. if that's true, it would be significant because under the previous rules the ukraine whistleblower's complaint likely would have been rejected. back to y'all. pete: it's an important point. more information on that right now because one man's whistleblower is another man's leaker, and it all depends on the process. but wait, what if you control the process, and what if you can change one detail that says firsthand information not required, secondhand information okay, now you get this bulletproof title of whistleblower, and you can hide your identity and everyone can say this is a he writ mate complaint. -- legitimate complaint. jedediah: yeah. this starts with a conversation about president trump, and many have said, hold on a second, this should be a conversation about biden, about former vice president joe biden and his son. mark levin had a lot to say on
that. he spoke with us last hour. take a listen. >> the question is whether biden did something illegal. the president didn't do anything illegal. you know how i know? because nancy pelosi's been on every tv show, and she can't cite one section of the united states code where it's illegal. my question is why is joe biden above the law? why is his son above the law? where's hunter biden today? where's the media? don't they want to know if the leading contender for the democrat nomination is a crook and if his son is a crook? what do we know about joe biden and hunter biden? zero. pete: and he's not the leading contender, he's the former vice president who had dealings in ukraine, there's questions about the prosecutor and billions of dollars potentially withheld to stop prosecutions of his son while he's vice president is involved in deals there. calls a lot of questions, and we just don't hear about that. ed: right. and mark levin is pointing to what the president and his attorney, rudy giuliani, have
been trying to say. they've been raising questions about ukraine ties to hunter biden. many in the mainstream media pushing back saying, no, there's no there there. the president has tried to keep that front and center, and we had that a democrat earlier, jeff van drew, a congressman who is a democrat, who's saying he doesn't see anything yet that raises, that rises to the level of impeachable. so there you have a democrat saying something similar to what mark levin was saying a few moments ago. there's no, nothing here that rises to the level of impeachment. jedediah: well, lots of democrats have been talking impeachment, nancy pelosi in particular, and the president has done what he does best. he went straight to social media, he put a video out on twitter, and he called the democrats out. take a listen to what he had to saw say. >> the democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom, they want to take away your judges. they want to take away
everything. we can never let this happen. we're fighting to drain the swamp, and that's exactly what i'm doing, and you see why we have to do it. because our country is at stake like never before. it's all very simple. they're trying to stop me because i'm fighting for you, and i'll never let that happen. pete: he lays out the stakes very clearly, it's going to be us or them, a base election. and right now the cards are in the house of representatives where speaker nancy pelosi has decided to move forward with an inquiry after holding back for a long time. but it still remains to be seen what the inquiry, what the impeachment would be about. we had a very good and spirited discussion with mark levin last hour on the program. here's his take on nancy pelosi and the democrats. >> nancy pelosi has violated all the past processes by cutting out the house of representatives, be by a single member from san francisco and these other members driving an impeachment inquiry.
people say aoc took over the house. no, nancy's aoc. she's smarter than aoc but dumber in this sense: she gave the united states senate every reason to say, you know what? we are not going to hold a trial based on what nancy pelosi decided and her violation of the history of america when it comes to impeachment. that's exactly what this senate should say. ed: by the way, when i asked mark questions, people mistake it on social media to think i'm fighting with hill. i'm a journalist. i'm going to press him on his opinions, which are very strong the, and that's fair game. this is a free country, and i think mark made a really important point right there because when he's talking about aoc and nancy pelosi, you teed it up perfectly, because shely cysted for months and months -- resists. president trump branded the democratic party as the aoc, the squad, that they were the real leaders of the democratic party, and many in the mainstream media
laughed and said they're just these freshmen congresswomen. and mark levin pointed out, no, they are driving the agenda for the democrats whether it's the green new deal or impeach. aoc and others are leading nancy pelosi around. jedediah: the consequences could be devastating for elections though. she has to know that. and history shows when you do this process of impeachment, it's not always successful in particular in this case because they can't even cite the reason why. if you go to any leading democratic politician, and you say, listen, what are the term for impeachment, i have not heard one person cite the legality -- pete: this is the most cowardly impeachment of all time. i want to have my impeachment but not impeach because i don't have any evidence. it's the same as the health care bill, i've got to pass the impeachment so i can find out what's in it -- ed: and rush it now before thanksgiving so it's not in 2020, but the president's going to remind everybody. this is a really important charity race, the tunnel to

around the detention and removal system congress created must end. should also point out that on friday a judge in los angeles also took aim at another immigration policy that the trump administration has been trying to push forward. this, of course, has to do with the detainment of undocumented children, keeping them with their parents for an unspecified amount of time. this is part and parcel to the strategy, flood the courts with blocking and obstruction, if you will, that's what the white house has said. and then they have to fight this all the way through the supreme court. we'll see how it turns out, but for now, guys, back to you. ed: kevin corke, i think last weekend i did not adequately thank you, so i want the thank you twice for your reporting last weekend and this weekend. >> reporter: my pleasure. anytime. pete: appreciate it. now, i never thought i'd say this, but this morning we're joining the resistance -- ed: joining the resistance. pete: not that resistance.
