economic club, i'll see you next weekend on "fox & friends," right back here saturday and sunday noon eastern as we continue to cover the stories that a matter to you. now over to eric and arthel neville for a brand new hour. ♪ ♪ arthel: adam schiff denying congressional republicans' requests for the whistleblower to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry, saying it would be, quote, redundant is and that it would put the whistleblower's safety at risk. hello, everyone, i'm arthel neville. eric: hello, everyone. i'm eric shawn. this comes as the impeachment hearings are about to go public for the very first time. those public hearings with testimony that we can all watch on our television sents are set for this coming week. they will start on wednesday. -- start on wednesday.
garrett tenney with more. >> reporter: well, republicans were hoping to lift the focus of these public hearings from president trump's interactions with ukraine to that of the bidens and the dnc during the 2016 election. that is why the gop requested witnesses such as hunter biden and his business partner as well as nellie ohr. intelligence chairman adam schiff is suggesting that is not going to happen though. and this morning the chairman of the democratic caucus, hakim jeff race, dismiss the gop's list tweeting: sham witnesses wanted to testify. my two cents? get lost. but on fox news sunday, congressman sean patrick maloney, who sits on the intelligence committee, said he expects some of the gop's witnesses will be allowed to testify. >> well, i can't speak for the chairman, but what i can tell you is that i think we will end up calling some of the witnesses on that list, and here's my
test: do these witnesses have important information, knowledge about the president's conduct? if it passes that test, then we should call them, sure. >> reporter: democrats continue to argue there is no question president trump broke the law and should be impeached. the defense we're hearing from a small but growing number of republicans though is while they don't agree with the president's actions in ukraine, they do not rise to the level of impeachment. >> i believe it was unemployment. i do not believe it was impeachable. >> what i want to see, is there an ability to establish criminal intent, did the ukrainians know that this was some kind of a quid pro quo. >> reporter: chairman schiff has not made any final decisions on which have to the witnesses will be allowed to testify, but with the public phase beginning next week, that announcement likely will not take much longer. eric and arthel? eric: thanks so much. arthel: while washington is getting ready for those public hearings, president trump is in
new york today. ellison barber is at the white house with more on the administration's impeachment inquiry strategy. ellison, hi. >> reporter: hey, arthel. president trump is now joining republicans in calling for the first whistleblower to testify. congressional republicans, of course, asked for a witness list of at least 14 people to be approved so that they could testify, make their appearances. that list, as garrett reported, included the first whistleblower and former vice president joe biden's son, hunter biden. president trump tweeted that former vice president joe biden should testify, but yesterday he ignored shouted questions about whether whether or not hunter biden should. the white house press secretary said president trump probably would like to see it too. will be -- listen here. >> the american people should be concerned that when there was a politician, biden, vice president biden at the time in office, his son was potentially profiting off of that. finish so he, i'm sure, would
enjoy seeing him up there. i would love to hear what hunter biden has to say, absolutely. >> reporter: a number of white house officials defied subpoenas last week, what the white house advised them to do. the president defended that tactic telling reporters on friday he does not want to give credibility to what he sees as a corrupt witch hunt. democrats see it as efforts to delay and possibly on struck their invest story work. arthel? arthel: ellison barber, thank you. eric: for more on the big week ahead and what we may not see, republican congressman and member of the house armed services committee michael waltz joins us. we also booked a democratic congressman, but he's sick, lost his voice. we wish him well. first of all, your view, republicans, do you think are they being shut out by congressman schiff for the witnesses you want to see testify? >> well, eric, you know, this is frustrating and continues to be
frustrating. these trials should have been public all along, but that -- now that they are going to be public doesn't mean this is can turn into a show trial. i point out that, one, president clinton's counsel was allowed to be present, was allowed to question people back during the clinton proceedings and actually was allowed to call 15 witnesses to the stand and actually to ask questions. so i don't think, we still are not seeing the minority rights that we should, and we still aren't seeing the president get the representation that he should have. and the media and the democrats keep going, you know, they want to talk substance, substance, substance and not process, but process matters here, due process matters. this is about the constitution. and this is -- eric: isn't that the, excuse me for interrupting, but isn't that a the substance of the allegations that the democrats have against the president, saying that he broke the law in he, of course, saying that it's not true, or there's no quid pro
quo. >> look, i think at the end of the day this is a lot of noise. the president was transparent from the beginning, he released the transcript, and what this is going to.com down to -- come down to was whether the vice president abused his official position to enrich his family. and we haven't -- we aren't even talking about china yet and how punt hunter biden flew on air force two and weeks later every received over a billion dollars into a hedge fund for which he had no experience and still holds the equity to this day. was he asking about that or was he doing -- eric -- >> [inaudible] >> i don't think it is, yet i can't get access to all of the information until adam schiff and nancy pelosi say so. eastbound -- eric: what if schiff turns the request down? what would you ask hunter biden
if you had the chance? >> i want to get into how the vice president influenced, how he came across this money. i think there are a number of things to look into how one thing happened with official meetings when the vice president went other on air force two and then just a short time later the, his son and the stepson of kerry are receiving billions of dollars from the bank of china. and let me point out, eric, i was just down in panama on an official trip down there looking at the panama canal for which our entire economy is dependent and our military plans are dependent. and guess what in the chinese are building ports on both sides to have panama canal, they're investing all over latin america. the monroe doctrine, in some ways, is under serious threat. and yet, you know, we have these kind of investments into the son of a vice president? i think this is absolutely worth looking into, yet the mainstream media and the democrats just
want to say nothing to sere here. so at the end of the day, that transcript is going to come down to what was the president's intent, and that's for us to determine. eric: adam schiff says he thinks that's a sham investigation. quote: eric: do you think these questions ara sham, and do you think the whistleblower -- >> let me tell you what's a sham. this is the intelligence committee, and yet it has turned into the impeachment committee. we are facing serious threat from the chinese, russia is still very dangerous, we still have islamic extremism. meanwhile, by the way, i'm on the armed services committee, we don't have a defense bill yet for the first time in 58 years we may not have one.
the military is, as we roll into veterans day tomorrow, the military is but two weeks from running out of money. so the men and women overseas deserve better from washington. the veterans who put their lives on the line deserve better from washington who still aren't getting the care that they need. is and let me tell you what else is happening, they may eventually get some money, but it'll be last year's money meaning we can't do anything new; no new ships, no new research and development, no new weapons to keep up with what the chinese are doing in artificial intelligence. that's what's a sham. and that is what -- our veterans expect people overseas deserve better, and their families deserve better who are waiting at home for them to have the equipment and the training and the new research and development that they deserve and that they need. eric: and a very special note on that as we are thought to have veterans day and also for you, congressman, who currently serve in the army reserves -- >> yeah. eric: we thank you for your
military service -- >> well, thank you, eric. everyone, please thank the families as we roll into veterans day. i hope we can set all of this aside for a day to honor the free air that we all breathe because of their sacrifice. eric, absolutely. congressman, thank you. >> all right. arkansas indeed. thank you very much. for more, we're going to talk about the open hearings coming up this week, we're going to bring in former edenty assistant of state for legislative affairs in the obama administration, many joel reuben, and he's also the -- mr. joel rubin, president of the washington strategy group. good to see you. i want to start by asking, joel -- thank you -- how should dems go about conducting these open hearings this week in. >> the hearings this week are going to shine a light on what they've been hearing behind closed doors at the depositions alongside their republican colleagues. i think where democrats need to really start and where chairman schiff needs to drive this is to have what was heard behind closed doors come out in public,
out of the mouths of real human beings and not of their own mouths, but literally of the ambassador's who will be, the deputy assistant secretary of state as well who will be testifying, to let them explain in their own words as members of the trump administration what they saw and how that's problematic. arthel: that said though, are the democrats putting too much stock into these open hearings, or will these hearings produce the dividends the dems are hoping for in. >> so hearings are never prescripted. one doesn't really know exactly how it's going to come out. it's like watching a sporting event where you think that the team that's ahead is guaranteed to win, and then the last minute it can flip, and the score can go the other direction. same thing with these hearings. we have to see how they speak, and democrats clearly by putting this in the public view are hoping that the hearing will go in their direction and that it will enable americans to understand the gravity of the charges against the president that they're laying out that
really there was something askance, that there really was the misuse of american taxpayer dollars to help the president's personal political fortune and that that is an impeachable offense. they need to have that in that discussion x it needs to be clear for the american people to see. arthel: should they invite some to have witnesses from the gop wish list? >> what they need to do is really stick to actual objective of these hearings. and the objective is looking at the ukraine dynamic, the phone call that the president made, the foreign aid, the had doe foreign policy that rudy giuliani conducted. it's not as a if this is new information. the president himself released a summary of his call essentially saying he did what the democrats are saying is a violation of his oath of office. so witnesses that are within that lane, yes. but the idea that we're going to somehow have hunter biden and people off topic coming in opens up a whole can of worms. it doesn't help the american people to understand what's at
stake, and it's, frankly, a lot of, to use the term, it's gas-lighting. trying to confuse rather than clarify for the american people. arthel: yesterday the president announced that he will release a summary of a second call with the ukraine president certificate eleven is sky. zelensky. does this suggest that a distraction campaign will be forged by the republicans during this open hearing? >> well, one can never discount the amount of theater that's going to take place. sort of a circus moment, is what we may end up watching. we've seen this time and again when it gets really hot, that the president will throw out a bone and then his republican allies in the house will pick it up. so if he releases the summary, that would be interesting. i'd actually like to see him release the full transcript which is in the white house that apparently states the words biden, biden, biden many more times than what he released back in september, making it clear
that this was about the bidens, not about corruption in ukraine. so if he wants to open up that can of worms, he's going to get more questions than he may be interested in having. arthel: a joel, will the atmosphere inside the hearings determine how engaged the american public will be? >> arthel, we've got a culture right now of a short, as you know, a are short attention span. it's not the early 1970s. but we recently did have one example with the mueller hearing, and the american people paid attention. they clearly did not go the way democrats wanted, but it was not as if the american people were not tuning in. so i think if more comes out in the these hearings that is leaning towards where the democrats are going or even, of course, if the republicans make a point that undermines some of the arguments of the democrats, that's going to get attention. but political parties can't go on very long east, so they too have a natural limit on how many days they feel they can dedicate to this in the public space.
arthel: okay. we leave it there, joel rubin. thank you very much. >> thanks, arthel. eric: f and as the impeachment hearings get underway, just across the street at the supreme court will pit executive power against immigration reform. the court is set to hear arguments over the trump administration's plans to end the obama era deferred action for childhood arrivals program, otherwise known as daca. mark meredith has the details. >> reporter: good afternoon, eric. it's been more than two years since the trump administration announced plans to end the daca program. now the fight is over whether it can be terminated or not, and that's headed to the supreme court this week. on friday daca supporters rallied odds the nation's highest court, deferred action for childhood arrival, and as we talked about, it's an obama era policy that allows some illegal immigrants who came as children to receive work permits and renewable reprieves from possible deportation. >> if daca's taken away, my
biggest fear is graduating college and not being able to pursue the career that i want to do because i need a social security number, i need that identification to be able to continue to work. >> reporter: trump administration says it has the right to terminate daca because it believes it was never legal to begin with. the president, president trump, tweet about the case last month writing on rhine, quote: if the supreme court upholds daca, it gives the president extraordinary powers, far greater than ever thought. democratic presidential hopefuls have vowed, if elected, to keep daca in place. vermont senator bernie sanders says he plans to expand the program and overhaul the entire immigration system. >> on our first day in office, we will restore the legal status to have 1.8 million young people eligible for the daca program. >> reporter: while the oral arguments are happening on tuesday, a final decision is not expected until sometime in 2020, meaning this is an issue that
will likely keep coming up on the campaign trail. the debate comes as the trump administration is also proposing to increase fees daca recipients pay e to renew their paperwork every two years. the administration says the money is needed to help cover benefit requests and costs associated with vetting applicants. eric? eric: mark, thanks so much. arthel: mormon families from two towns in mexico crossed into arizona saturday afternoon following a violent attack that left nine americans dead. the attack occurred monday when cartel members opened fire on a dirt road. it took authorities several hours to respond to the ambush. among the dead are six children. other residents from the same two towns are also expected to leave mexico in the coming days. eric: iran's president rouhani claims his country has made a huge discovery, what tehran says it's found and what that could mean for the u.s., coming up. ♪ i saved hundreds on my car insurance

that they want to actually progress through their career in a way that's meaningful to them or not working in an area that they are interested in. arthel: how does that relate to income when you say under employed. it relates a lot to income, many, you know, military members coming out of the service, the average starting salary nationwide might be $45,000, veterans coming out of our program after a year of mentorship, average starting salary around $82,000, big difference in salary. arthel: i want to share some other stats on america corporate partners so we can let everyone know what you're up to, more than 30,000 veterans have participated in acp's program, acp has provided more than 15,500 veterans with year-long corporate mentorships, you have more than 80 of the largest companies in the country that are providing mentors and funding for the program, acp is citizens mentoring program
