way the whole russia thing started with at the base, the steele dossier which looks like a pack of lies, when you lie to the court and the american people we have the right to snow and the right to challenge that, we have the right to understand witness bias, these are fundamental precepts in criminal law and when you're talking about impeachment or removing the president, akin to prosecution. heather: we mentioned some of what schiff had to say, this is one of the full comments, impeachment inquiry has gathered ever-growing body of evidence from witnesses and documents but far exceeds the initial information. testimonies therefore redundant and unnecessary, let's also bring up the full gop witness list that we know so far because he's also said hunter biden which is on the list will not be allowed to testify and then you
can take a look, devin or her, david hale, alexander chalupa, nelly ohr, the whistleblower whoever will be. a lot of familiar names when it comes to the russia collusion investigation as well. >> well, that's right, heather what you have here, you have to have context when the republicans say they want to question hunter biden it's all about context, the democrats say that the president has abused his office and committed high crimes and demeanors in quid pro quo without understanding the context and president's request, what was the context, was there corruption by the previous administration, high-level officials like the president and his son in the administration before president trump that president trump had every right and really a duty to ask about,
it is not at all out of bounds for the president to ask for cooperation from a former head of state when it comes to criminal matters of u.s. citizens. heather: so why not truly have this an open hearing with both sides being able to have whom they want come forward? >> well, heather, unfortunately i don't think they really want the truth, this is not a search for the truth, if it was you would have the bidens, you would have all of the people involved in potential corruption with a foreign government coming in to testify and giving that kind of context and i think the fact that you don't, the fact that they refuse to allow the republicans the due process of calling who they want much less the president, giving the same rights president clinton lad he's not had in the proceedings so far, that shows you that the process not fair, they have no desire to search for the truth,
they are merely trying to remove the president from office. >> beyond all of that, not fair to the american people to have the facts, thank you so much for joining us, we will see what happens this week. >> thanks, weather. heather: time now is 18 minutes after the top of the honor and medal of honor to country's greatest heros. >> medal of honor to me represents the best of who we are as a country, you see, my name is on it. doesn't belong to me, anyone that's ever served there's a piece of them on this medal. heather: carley shimkus takes us behind the scenes behind the medal of honor convention.

night aboard our ship that we were going in. i would have never done what i have done in these 74 years if i had not been for the medal of honor. heather: love him for sure. carley: amazing to get to meet him, my maintaining away even though they received the award, they don't really feel like it's there, they feel like they are receiving it for the men and women that they serve with and those who have died and can't receive it themselves. heather: isn't it interesting that every time that we talk about the heros, they always say a similar thing? >> it's true, it's true, incredible amount of attention being brought onto them and a lot of them feel like it's a burden but also very humbling to see how they have responded to this. heather: that's the thing, they are humble.

>> there are folks that are trying to completely purchase our political system running as republicans and now tossing in their hats as democrats. >> mike al bloomberg and other billionaires, sorry, you ain't going to buy this election. >> so could this be a sign democrats are worried about the added competition, here to debate liberal analyst kathy aru and kathy barnett, thank you both for joining us, we have kathy and kathy. how am i going to do this, kathy barnett, you win, are they worried, the democrats? >> listen, they should be but what bloomberg is doing simply reading the tealeaves at this point in time, remember, biden came out of the gate with -- with a tremendous amount of fanfare, he was the crowd favorite, he was touted as the moderate democrat and yet from the time he came out with that flop of youtube video he has had
one misstep after another, he can't seem to get over tripping his own lips by saying one statement after another, now we have quinnipiac poll coming out recently that he's placing fourth among iowa voters, bloomberg is just reading the tealeaves, not to forget his son biden, hunter biden. heather: remains what to be seen what happened with that beginning this week, i should say, kathy a, biden at 31%, sanders 20%, warren 18, pete buttigieg, harris and bloomberg at 4%. >> right, well, we still don't know who bloomberg is, we know the name but we actually don't
know him as a -- we don't know him as politician, so now all the other candidates aoc and biden and warren and all those who should be worried, not aoc, she's not running but she has endorsed someone, they are trying to define him but he's going define himself and a lot of people on both sides of the aisle are excited about bloomberg and he's doing something no one else has done before, he's ignored the blood bath that's been going on and he's go to jump in now and he has a great chance, new york really loved him and it's up -- heather: i was going say he does have the name recognition going into it. he served as mayor, what, twice in new york city. >> 3 times. heather: ran as independent, he switched parties and became a democrat, kathy b, i will get you to respond to this, this was bloomberg and adviser in potential 2020 run, statement officially, we now need to finish the job and ensure that
trump is defeated by mike is increasingly concern that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that. >> yes, and that's exactly what i was saying initially, he's reading the tealeaves, the reason why bloomberg has jumped into the race, it says more about biden and warren than it does anyone else. biden was the preferred candidate and now that he's dropped the ball and say he has had underwhelming. heather: when you say finish the job, many think he's referring to $100 million that he donated and spent to flip the house with
democrats, kathy a, some of the things being said by aoc and biden -- i'm sorry, sanders over the weekend, they basically are saying that he's trying to buy the election. roar right, that's the only thing they can say, they are trying to define him because no one knows him yet, that's the only thing they could say about him right now, there's nothing else that they know that's negative and him being a billionaire is not a negative. he practically paid to be mayor of new york, he gave back more than he ever took from the city, that's someone that people are excited about and the democrats are excited about bloomberg. heather: kathy b, president trump who is not taking his salary as president and donating it to different causes. >> but unlike bloomberg, unlike the rest of the 2020 field, president trump has a very strong economy, he has done more for the black community since the day of abraham lincoln and to have someone like bloomberg jump into the race, i -- i agree with -- with sanders and some of
other democrats, they should be worried because if biden fails the party really wants a more moderate candidate and if bloomberg fits that mold, then the others should be concerned. heather: you are right about the economy, 6.7 million jobs created, 2.5 million people lifted out of poverty just so far during this administration. kathy a and kathy b, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you. heather: with all due respect former ambassador nikki haley accusing top aides of plotting the president's back. >> to undermine the president is a really dangerous thing and it goes against the constitution and goes against what the american people want, it was offensive. heather: who she said approached with a plan to, quote, save the country. a dad who can't contain excitement, baby gender reveal

>> well, it's good that we have potus recognizing our service, it's just, you know, a day that, you know, we have to recognize certain special for the fact that we have service members serving right now in iraq and afghanistan, syria, so, you know, just hanging along with the appreciation is very important. >> you're right, we have veterans from both sides of the aisle so let's certainly hope it doesn't become political today, let's take a look, let's get you doctor to respond to this, the lowest unemployment rate since 2000, annual military pay increase and expansion of private healthcare options, he also created the va accountability office and mental healthcare for transitioning service members, so he's done a lot doctor. >> i agree, going back to my time as army officer, it was a difficult task to rally the troops behind me or i should say under me to being a part of
what's going on, when i say a part of what is going on, seems like the political climate was against them and congress to receive benefits as oppose to introducing more benefits, we have a president that's introducing more benefits for veterans and that's really a robust component for us as military members, i salute the president in his endeavor and happy to say that i've served in the united states military and i salute all veterans on this veterans day. heather: what do you think? >> if you go back to when private citizen donald trump was running for president, veterans were center piece of campaign, veterans are still a center piece, one of the things that i like that has changed urn president trump used to be he wanted va health care you had to go to va hospital and now with the mission act that came into law under president trump, if you have a healthcare need you can go to local doctor, family doctor and the va will reimburse the doctor, gives you a whole
new world of options, it puts the veterans as the decision maker and not bureaucrats. >> 57% of veterans approve of president trump's leadership, do you expect as the democratic candidates begin to present their ideas and policies that will impact veterans, do you expect the number will grow aisha, i will start with you? >> regard to policies presented by the democrats i think it can go either way but for the most part i think both sides have a good plans and i think that for the most part you see continuity on both sides, both sides are very, very into making sure that we combat suicide awareness, you know, that number is increasing and i do think there's a bipartisan spirit behind that. heather: but let's stick with the period, let's not make it
partisan, let's talk about this new poll that shows almost half of veterans feel uncomfortable being thanked for their service, so what is the best way to support our heros when they do come home, dr. porcher? >> i think one of the best ways to support the veterans in reentry process, when i say reentry process, when someone exits active duty providing proper housing and employment, that's the most key component in terms of advancing as a veteran, often times as military doesn't necessarily teach you skill set and how to assimilate back into current society this being said, saying thank you is great thing but works better when we have fortune 500 companies that buy into the policies. >> let me take you back to what my friend darren said, sometimes you have a job description that calls for a 4-year degree, a lot of times the sergeant right out of the army or marine corps doesn't have the 4-year degree f
employees recognize that someone who serves in the military especially in nco or leadership position, they already have a great management agree, they don't have have a diploma that says so but real-world experience, it would be good for veterans. >> make it more than just words, make it action when it comes to our veterans, by the way, thank you all, thank you for your service to this country, we appreciate it. >> thanks for having us. >> heather: and we will be right back. the competition - since they don't offer the same amount of cameras as the silverado. literally in the rear-view. where they should be.
