administration reject your unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process. in order to fulfill his duties to the american people, the constitution, the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the presidency donald trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances. the heart of the complaint is sweeping. house democrats are violating the constitution and all precedents set during past impeachment procedures but it also personal. tonight both the letter and donald trump's team are singling out adam schiff. >> you have a chairman of the committee who to the american people, he said he hadn't talked to the whistleblower when in fact he had. a chairman of the committee reading fake testimony to the american people. >> democrats are outraged, nancy pelosi saying the white house

12:05 am
with a political campaign, some replying the president has been crystal-clear no quid pro quo of any kind. in a statement, his attorney says the impact can be resolved quickly, quote, he stands ready to testify on short notice whenever he's permitted to appear. nancy pelosi weighing in shifted not take reporter questions after the fresh allegations. >> the ambassador has text messages or emails on a personal device and the state department is withholding those messages as well. >> as the evidence unfolds, what time is it time to say yes or no to proceed. >> republicans it back. >> what we see is a kangaroo court. >> they criticize policy for avoiding a full house vote that would give both parties legal tools. >> there is not been a vote to lunch and impeachment inquiry because the minority does not have any rights for subpoenas. >> republicans:democrats to increase last rates 10 skips

from michael atkinson, the watchdog was never told that was a blower's contact with shiplap staff and special envoy to ukraine kurt voelker. >> the full text of ambassador voelker's testimony last week would've exonerated this president, let's release it. >> house democrats are considering extraordinary steps to protect the whistleblower's identity if they testify including masking their voice and of securing their face. >> amid the impeachment your the chairman of the senate judiciary committee lindsey graham is offering rudy giuliani a chance to talk directly to lawmakers. chuck schumer says sure giuliani can testify but only under oath. great to have you with us tonight. let's start with that. diane feinstein of the senate judiciary says i welcome the opportunity to question rudy
12:07 am
giuliani under oath about his role in seeking ukrainian government assistance to investigate one of the president's political rivals. >> it would be great to have rudy giuliani testify in front of the senate judiciary committee although senator feinstein appears confused about what is involved. the -- donald trump and rudy giuliani are very much hoping to bring to light how ukraine meddled in the 2016 election on behalf of hillary clinton. you had democratic operatives working with ukrainian government officials to help hillary clinton's campaign and that has been admitted to by ukrainian officials and many people in ukraine were involved in this russia hoax, the idea that donald trump was a traitor who colluded with russia in the 2016 election which brings us to the much more important point which is the senate judiciary committee should be having a lot more people than just rudy
12:08 am
giuliani testifying including so many people who were involved in the department of justice and fbi investigation of the trump campaign and it is very odd that lindsey graham and other committees haven't been doing more on that front. >> after the committees and democratic leaders have been doing more, wanting to talk to other witnesses, the white house had this blasting letter to the democrat leaders, the council to the president writing everything they are doing, what they call a fake impeachment inquiry because there is no violate the constitution, the rule of law and every past precedent, given your inquiry lacks a legitimate constitutional foundation in for intense of fairness or even the most elementary due process protections we cannot be expected to participate in and saying the president can't cross-examine a witnesses or get documents or evidence. why don't they just take a vote and make it legitimate in the white house's eyes, take that away from the white house and make it a formal proceeding? >> i think you and anyone who has a little understanding of how the constitution works, how
12:09 am
the impeachment process works, all those trial activities the president's lawyers wrote in that letter happens in the senate after an impeachment by the house and it is also very clear when you look at this letter that came out of the white house that this is a political argument. every legal analysis i have read, i talked to lawyers who are experts on this say there is no legal argument in this letter. whether it is lindsey graham in the senate or the white house, trying everything they can to shutdown what is a valid investigation into what i hope every single american whether you are a trump supporter or a democrat or you voted for hillary in 2016 would understand russia, ukraine, china, no foreign government has any
12:10 am
business in our democracy. no business doing what russia did, do what the president has asked ukraine to do, doing what we heard him say on national television asking china to do. we do have to get to this point. nancy pelosi tried her damnedest not to get too impeachment. i have been proud because many times in my life to be a democrat but i am particularly proud of democrats now because even in the face of when impeachment was something that was going to be a political risk that was changing because now you are seeing polls move very fast, republicans calling for the president to be impeached. shannon: i want you to reply to the reporting by byron york that the inspector general told folks behind closed doors that not only was the original
12:11 am
whistleblower a registered democrat, but he had a significant -- one of the presidential candidates currently trying to challenge donald trump inaccurate selection. >> we knew there were multiple reasons the inspector general thought the whistleblower had partisan bias and it couldn't be just that he was registered democrat. learning that he had professional ties to one of the candidates is important but also reason to believe the whistleblower wasn't just blowing whistle is repeating hearsay. he got a lot wrong with what he claimed about this phone call and this is the problem with the impeachment inquiry. we already have the phone call. we can read it. we don't need whistleblowers. we don't need to hear about it. the -- shannon: there's a big effort to get testimony directly from this whistleblower. everyone in dc hopes that happens, we get more answers. >> we deserve that testimony and the evidence to be protected that he has.
12:12 am
shannon: a fox news alert, turkey reinforcing the border with syria as it prepares to launch an offensive against kurdish fighters. they have been us allies in the fight against isis, warned about the president's plans to pull us troops out of the region. donald trump has written turkey with sanctions if it does attack the kurds. the united auto workers accusing general motors of selling out american workers in favor of foreign labor. a new letter, negotiations and going on for 23rd day saying we have openly told gm we do not see a solid commitment to this talented and skilled workforce that is made them billions of dollars in profits. we made it clear there is no job security for us when gm products are made in other countries for the purpose of selling them here in the usa. a fox news at night exclusive. amid trade talks with us and china, growing war of words days

>> for anybody watching this show, double entendre, i'm talking about the bigger one. the 7 deadly sins are what this is about, what donald trump is fighting for, standing up for china and it is the cyberintrusions into our business network, intellectual property theft, technology transfer, dumping of product putting out jobs, currency manipulation and the thing that is really important, fentanyl and opioids that kill 100 people by the end of this day, 50,000 by the end of the year. those are the verticals that were in the original deal last may that the chinese -- walked away from that. shannon: better heavy list to get those things done and with them morning, one headline, temporary optimism for trade deal, china pouring cold water on hopes for a trade deal

12:42 am
of an exceptional task of us attorneys this administration has put in place and i have heard his scope is expanded not only in the timeline but his staff is increased, that tells me one thing and that is they found something that will take more time and attention than they thought, or documents, more witnesses or bigger case than originally expected. the durum investigation, they are not going to talk about it. build bar is working on this probe by all accounts, determined to get to the bottom of this, and give a full report to the american people. shannon: i want to play something the speaker said about this a few days ago. >> let me ask you about the attorney general. >> he has gone rogue. where they are going is a cover-up of the cover-up and

shannon: it appears supreme court justices are divided over ideological lines whether a federal civil rights law extends to lgbt q employees when talking about job dissemination, kicking off its fall term with a hot button issue.
12:50 am
the supreme court today tackled a trio of cases that had the potential to reshape federal employment law as it has existed since the civil rights act was passed in 1964. the text of the law prevents employers from discriminating on the basis of sex was legal advocates have argued that means women and men cannot be treated differently with regard to the majority of employment decisions. progressives say the word sex should extend to gender identity and sexual orientation. jerry bomb stock lost his job for being gay, argues the law's protection should be expanded. >> we are talking about millions and millions of people that go to work every day fearful for being fired for who they are and that is wrong. >> the court seemed evenly divided with justice alito questioning whether adopting a broader view of the law is the proper role for the judiciary.
12:51 am
of the court take this up and interprets this 1964 statute to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation we will be acting exactly like a legislature. sonja said mayor said even though congress acted decades ago what was happening in 2019 falls under the law's protections. at what point does the court say congress cares about this? it is clear what happening fits those words. one of today's defendants runs a funeral home his grandfather started and says former employee stevens was let go for failing to follow the dress code not because stevens, born biologically male decided to transition to female. >> the aclu is trying to use my grandfather's family businesses upon to achieve a larger political goal. >> we will have to wait for a decision that will come between now and next june. what role could neil gorsuch play in this? turned to richard fowler and concerned women for america. good to have you here tonight.
12:52 am
the aclu is very involved in this case. david cold who argued the case in the lgbt community has won hard-fought protections in court before and we hope the justices will not turn back the clock on equality and justice, no one should be fired because of who they are. what is the argument against that? >> there is in tonight went against that. this is a much broader issue. standing outside the supreme court today were women's, conservative women, the women's liberation front self identified radical feminists who are concerned about changing the definition of what sex is, that it broadens it and creates consequences was the question is what happens to women in their safe spaces, domestic violence shelters, locker rooms, women who are incarcerated. if we do away with recognizing biology, men and women there are wide reaching consequences for women across the spectrum and that is why you saw the left and
12:53 am
the right, 16 attorney generals with deep concerns. >> interesting to see the left and right unite on that part of the conversation saying women fought for all kinds of things like title ix and that came up today, justice ginsburg even brought that up. talking about all the potential ramifications of this case and the fact that people who are born biologically male who are competing on women's teams and women's sports, people raising concerns about what that does long-term to women and the rights they fought for. >> this case is totally about employment. title vii, we have already seen protections for lgbt q folks and there is a social upheaval, women's private spaces are being violated but let's be very clear that what this law is about is not discrimination against people based on sex.
12:54 am
a violent man, i am fired because i date a man or woman data manager doesn't get 5 means being discriminated against because i'm a man so you can't take sex out of sexual orientation which is the argument made by the plaintiff in this case and it speaks to what our country looks like, 25 states of put in protections for lgbt q folks and protecting them. >> that is why a number of justices raised the question that okay things have changed over time and the law was was passed in 1964 couldn't have foreseen what we have now. congress has been presented numerous times, they could have modified this to specifically include gender identity or sexual orientation so this is a job for congress and not the courts. >> it is the job of congress to make this decision and not something with judicial fiat but women are being hurt and we have two cases pending, one from california and one from alaska because they are being heard in domestic violence shelters in which men are in their spaces sexually harassing them.
12:55 am
>> we should protect against that. the broad stretch of transgender focus want to go to work and be paid. the courts of intervened anytime there's orbit discrimination, brown versus board and levy versus virginia. another case records have to intervene to stop discrimination against trans people, gay people, lesbian and bisexual people. >> he said it is a close case so we watch is vote and all the others. thank you both. yesterday i had the honor of joining the bipartisan washington dc group global win alongside honorary cochair senator shelley capital. this is about encouraging your woman to excel academic, physical fitness and trying to boost their self-confidence too. the middle school girls we met in west virginia were amazing, the committee pledged to do something new and great in their lives, the bipartisan lawmakers backing these efforts like senator capital and all these
12:56 am
