8:30 am
residency in the process and i worried a lot about that as it didn't see in the process and i worried a lot about that been focused on it then i think we've succeeded in not doing damage but it's been focused on it then i think we've succeeded in not doing damage but it's not a good process it's not good for the country more or less so it's not a good process it's not good for the country more or less so to further divides us and i would caution the democrats a further divides us and i would caution the democrats in the house be careful what you wrought because if you look back at in the house be careful what you wrought because if you look back when the republicans voted to impeach bill clinton in the house and when the republicans voted to impeach bill clinton in the house and it
8:31 am
came over the senate we had the trial the house and a sort of historic came over the senate we had the trial the house and sort of historic. change lost seats the house republicans all seats. change lost seats the house republicans all seats so you know it's you've got to be very careful how you proceed on this the best so you know it's you've got to be very careful how you proceed on this the best way if you want to move a president is called an election but also the best way if you want to move a president is called an election but also there are good lawyers i'm sure and partisans on both sides of the hour that there are good lawyers i'm sure and partisans on both sides of the aisle that bill like you know there are things here that need to be looked into the question is how do you feel like you know there are things here that need to be looked into the question is how do you. do it and what
8:32 am
is the in result going to be in terms of you know you do it and what is the in result going to be in terms of you know the country itself it really what bothers me is that the congress is not the country itself it really bothers me is that the congress is not doing anything now they're not doing anything about immigration reform in this country they're not doing anything about doing anything now they're not doing anything about immigration reform in this country they're not doing anything about infrastructure one good thing about what we went through with clinton is we got infrastructure one good thing about what we went through with clinton is we right up until we began the trial and i made a day after we went right back to legislature right up until we began the trial and i made a day after we went right back to legislating now they the house can do that because only one committee but now they the house can do that because only one committee normally the judiciary committee would be meeting but once it gets to the senate if
8:33 am
you have a full normally the judiciary committee would be meeting but once it gets to the senate if you have a full blown senate trial every senator must be at his or her desk and ice but won't senate trial every senator must be at his or her desk and they spin every day every afternoon from 12 to 6 usually with all senate and every day every afternoon from 12 to 6 usually with all senators sitting there so the other legislative business stops are sitting there so the other legislative business stops on the impeachment process how has nancy pelosi in your opinion on the impeachment process how has nancy pelosi in your opinion handled it to this moment well let me point out handled it to this moment. well let me point out that
8:34 am
as you noted in the intro i did serve on the judiciary committee when i was a 1st at the as you noted in the intro i did serve on the judiciary committee when i was a 1st term congressman way back in 1973 and 74 so i saw it firsthand up close term congressman way back in 1973 and 74 so i saw it firsthand up close what is supposed to happen in the judiciary committee in the house was what is supposed to happen in the judiciary committee in the house which i served on and which peter rodino from new jersey chaired. which i served on in which peter rodino from new jersey chaired it was sort of done by the book and of course i also was majority leader when we had the amp a sort of done by the book and of course i also was majority leader when we had the impeachment trial of william jefferson clinton a trial that i knew from the beginning as a trial of william jefferson clinton a trial that i knew from the beginning as an old whip office holder and counter i
8:35 am
knew how to count the votes in old whip officeholder and counter i knew how to count the votes i could not see how we were going to get the votes to remove president clinton from office. so i could not see how we were going to get the boat to remove president clinton from office so the challenge for me and for the democratic leader tom daschle was how do we set though the challenge for me and for the democratic leader tom daschle was how do we set those up in a way that the people felt like we did our job we did it thoroughly we went through the step in a way that the people felt like we did our job we did it thoroughly we went through the process we had depositions we had debate we discussed it the chief justice a process we had depositions we had debate we discussed it the chief justice for as i did but at the end of the day when the vote occurred it was all were and were a presided but at the end of the day when the vote occurred it was all were and we
8:36 am
were able to move on and do other things for the country now that's a real challenge and we're about to go to move on and do other things for the country now that's a real challenge and we're about to have to test that speaker pelosi has been careful that's one reason why i've had to test that speaker pelosi has been careful that's one reason why the house has not yet voted for the more traditional resolution that would begin the the house has not yet voted for the more traditional resolution that would begin the impeachment proceedings in the judiciary committee and that's where i believe reside impeachment proceedings in the judiciary committee and that's where i believe resides so while she's taken some criticism for not doing it it's so while she's taken some criticism for not doing it that way by republicans i think it's cause she's waiting to see a little bit happen that way by republicans i think it's cause she's waiting to see a little bit how this plays out what the evidence was the mullah report did not cut
8:37 am
this plays out what the evidence was the mullah report did not come forward with the type of information that people say can pay for what might have wanted so. i would with the type of men from ation that people say can piece what might have wanted so she used you know thought of taking her time i guess the answer will be when she say she has the votes to use you know thought of taking her time i guess the answer will be when she say she has the votes in the time is ready in the house as best she can determine it she will proceed in the time is ready in the house as best she can determine it she will proceed but she's an old experienced hand you cannot underestimate speaker pelosi but she's an older experienced hand you know you cannot underestimate speaker pelosi did the founding fathers make a mistake did the founding fathers make a mistake when they call the high crimes and misdemeanors. when
8:38 am
they call the high crimes and misdemeanors do we understand that i don't think we really do do we understand that. i don't think we really do and perhaps it's in the mind of the holder or it depends on how a person will and perhaps it's in the mind of the holder or depends on how a person will define it but the constitution itself is very limited in what it says define it but the constitution itself is very limited in what it says about impeachment but if you go back and read the federalist papers with their guard to impeachment is about impeachment but if you go back and read the federalist papers with their guard to impeachment alexander hamilton and madison had some very clear thoughts about why that might be necessary alexander hamilton and madison had some very clear thoughts about why that might be necessary and how it should be done
8:39 am
they were very specific but for instance area and how it should be done they were very specific but for instance i don't know how they would have defined misdemeanors but i'm under the impression so i don't know how they would have defined misdemeanors but i'm under the impression that mr meter in their mind was a more serious charge then we entered that mr meter in their mind was a more serious charge then we interpret it today misdemeanor today as a a minor criminal by a later date today misdemeanor today as a a minor criminal violation or maybe even you know is it a distilling something wrong so i mean are maybe even you know is it a distilling something wrong so i think they thought it was more serious than it now is interpreted so i think they thought it was more serious than it now is interpreted so they thought i would have something more than high crimes and not
8:40 am
too serious cratloe they thought of it as something more than high crimes and not too serious crimes they thought of both of them as a pretty serious matter and that that's the thing you have they thought of both of them as a pretty serious matter and that that's the thing you have to prove and it's quite often very hard to prove is lying prove and it's quite often very hard to prove is lying to a grand jury. a crime it is certainly a grand jury. crime it is certainly more than a misdemeanor or is obstruction of justice. more than a misdemeanor or is obstruction of justice crime in my mind it could be and that was the conclusion i'm in my mind it could be and that was the conclusion i basically came to with regard to president nixon and there was the
8:41 am
smoking gun obviously came to with regard to president nixon and there was the smoking gun the actual tape of him giving instructions that could run the actual tape of him giving instructions that could certainly be interpreted as an instruction of justice speaking and that we certainly be interpreted as an instruction of justice speaking and that we now have an actual phone call between an american president and a song 10 shall have an actual phone call between an american president and a song to entry 3 to 4 different occasions now others have backed up that call 334 different occasions now others have backed up that call asking him this foreign country to investigate a political asking him this foreign country to investigate a political rival. as in that disturb you well if it don't rival.
8:42 am
as in that disturb you well it it disturbs me is a lot of things disturb me about that number one you know it's derb me is a lot of things disturb me about that number one you know looking at it from the presidency standpoint i don't stand while these people released now looking at it from the presidency standpoint i don't stand while these people were listening in a conversation or while there were all these recordings we would think presidents would have you know a conversation. while there were all these recordings we would think presidents would have learned for president nixon recording what goes on roll in the oval office not a great idea some learned for president nixon recording what goes on roll in the oval office and not a great idea secondly to be talking to the leader of another country about investec atlee to be talking to the leader of another country about investigating corruption
8:43 am
or investigating a person could be a political getting corruption or investigating a person could be a political opponent. that is disturbing but i think for ill opponent. that is disturbing but i think for it to be something beyond that they would have to be clear quid pro quo if you get to be something beyond that they would have to be clear quid pro quo if you don't do this we're not going to do that or vice versa but it's an area you don't do this we're not going to do that or vice versa but it's an area that is being looked into then the question is is it being looked that is being looked into then the question is has it been looked into and a proper way and that's one thing i always appreciated about that in 2 and a proper way and that's one thing i always appreciated about the judiciary
8:44 am
committee when i was a freshman house member 32 years old sitting on that committee traditionally committee when i was a freshman house member 32 years old sitting on that committee peter rodino the chairman was very fair in the way he way allowed republicans peter rodino the chairman was very fair in the way he way allowed republicans to ask questions to have witnesses i'm selves and ask questions to have witnesses i'm selves and and for me personally he'll allowed me to engage in the debate and for me personally. heel allowed me to engage in the debate against one of the articles and sleep page one which we did defeat against one of the articles and sleep page one which we did defeat so how you do something like this is almost as important so how you do something like this is almost as important as what do you do you need to
8:45 am
do it carefully and by the book and what do you do you need to do it carefully and by the book and make sure that it well for instance when i 1st met with my reply to sure that and well for instance when i 1st met with my republican conference about how to proceed on the clinton matter i had a process in my novel can conference about how to proceed on the clinton matter i had a process in mind that would have been concluded in about 2 weeks without any depositions or witnesses i mean it would have been concluded in about 2 weeks without any depositions or witnesses i mean things like that my own republican conference pushback said oh no you know what you did things like that my own republican conference pushback said oh no you know what you're doing you're trying to short circuit this and we need to do this by the book we know you're trying to short circuit this we need to do this by the book we need to have the full hearings we
8:46 am
need to have senators in the seats the chief justice sitting there we need to have the full hearings we need to have senators in the seats the chief justice sitting there we need to take depositions we need to have formal questions and so to take depositions we need to have formal questions and so i revised how we were going to do it and it wound up taking about a month but at the end and i revised how we were going to do it and it wound up taking about a month but at the end of that month most people whether they agreed or disagreed with the final result that month most. people whether they agreed or disagreed with the final result felt like it was done properly as required by the constitution all felt like it was done properly as required by the constitution you voted for guilty right i did vote for the 2 article you voted for guilty right i did vote for the 2 articles of impeachment one interesting thing about that did that on
8:47 am
a friday hold of impeachment one interesting thing about that did that on a friday tom daschle and i shook hands in the center island and agreed a tom daschle and i shook hands in the center island and agreed that we had done the job the best we could and i fair and bipartisan that we had done the job the best we could and i fair and bipartisan way a week later actually following thursday i got a call from president clay a week later actually on a following thursday i got a call from president clinton he wanted to talk to be about a bill it was a big bail in fact a number but he won't talk to me about a bill it was a big bill in fact i never have been able to recall exactly what it was but he wanted me to see if we could move this bill along through the print able to recall exactly what it was but he wanted me to see if we could move this bill along through the process he didn't mention how i had voted he didn't even mention the
8:48 am
impeachment trial we just says he didn't mention how i had voted he didn't even mention the impeachment trial we just went on with our business and in the next few years did several good things went on with our business and in the next few years did several good things for the country working together you've got to have that when the senate getting set for the country working together you've got to have that when the senate gets this to trial the 16 chief justice conducts the trial this trial the 16 chief justice conducts the trial. can you honestly say that every cent of the sentence you knew took is can you honestly say that every cent of the sentence you knew to consuming asli and voted their conscience absolutely seemingly and voted their conscience absolutely and we did
8:49 am
a lot of things that were were different for instance we couldn't decide really how to proceed and we did a lot of things that were were different for instance we couldn't decide really how to proceed so i finally came up with idea of ok we'll all go meet in the old senate seat so i finally came out with that idea of ok we'll all go meet in the old senate chamber no staff no press just senators and i asked denny akaka from the chamber no staff no press just senators and i asked denny akaka from hawaii to open a session with god it was a prayer that hopefully we would be a little white open a session with god it was a prayer that hopefully we would be led to do the right thing in that meeting and i called on senator byrd who was so led to do the right thing in that meeting and i called on senator byrd who was sort of the historian of the senate to give us a brief tutorial on what the constitution requires the historian of the senate to give us a brief tutorial on what the constitution required and then we opened up
8:50 am
a discussion and to our surprise senator graham a card and then we opened up a discussion and to our surprise senator gramm of texas spoke a conservative republican followed by senator ted kennedy spoke a conservative republican followed by senator ted kennedy of massachusetts and as i listened to him it sounded like they were saying the same thing today of massachusetts and as i listen to him it sounded like they were saying the same thing and so we came together and said ok we're going to go forward with the graham thing and so we came together and said ok we're going to go forward with the graham . kennedy proposal tom daschle asked me later did i really know for sure what kennedy proposal tom daschle asked me later did i really know for sure what we'd agreed to and i told him no but we had agreed and so i suggested what we'd agreed to and i told him no but we had agreed and so i suggested said tom look i think we
8:51 am
have a good idea what want to do here but you say in a couple of years said tom look i think we have a an idea what want to do here but you send a couple of your senators and i'll send a couple of mine and they'll write it up and we can then go forward it so he sent ted case senators and house and a couple of mine and they'll write it up and we can then go forward and so he sent ted kennedy and joe lieberman and i sent phil graham and slade gorton of washington state they came up with it in joe lieberman and i sent phil graham and slade gorton of washington state they came up with the polls well and we moved forward together and then the polls will and we moved forward together and the debate was it was really i thought thoughtful and one of the debate was it was really i thought thoughtful and one of the things that we did to try to make sure we understood each other at night and things that we did to try to make sure we understood each other at night after being in session from like $12.00 to $6.00 we

9:00 am
this is. mississippi he is in washington d.c. those. areas over the weekend the president dramatically announced the areas over the weekend the president dramatically announced the killing of isis leave. the. of isis leave. baghdad the what's the significance of that vote. well i think it is significant for significance of that vote. well i think it is significant 1st of all the great credit goes to our men and women our special force of all the great credit goes to our men and women our special forces that were involved in this attack apparently even a german shepherd dog works is that we're involved in this attack apparently even a german shepherd dog was a hero in this occasion so i think we should 1st thank the people that was
9:01 am
a hero in this occasion so i think we should 1st thank the people that put their lives on the line to take out one of the most feared and that put their lives on the line to take out one of the most feared and dreaded terrorist leaders in the world and so i sit righted the terrorist leaders in the world and so isis will have to really organize i guess to see who's going to be there will have to really organize i guess to see who's going to be there their leader to take his place but it was a significant and it's like their leader to take his place but it was significant and it's like in the past when we were able to take out other leaders of terrorist groups in the past when we were able to take out other leaders of terrorist groups when it was announced by george w. bush and by barack obama these kinds of when it was announced by george w.
9:02 am
bush and by barack obama these kinds of actions do clearly affect what a unit of actions do clearly affect what a unit like isis can do you because off the head it clearly affects what the tail can do so like isis can do you because off the head it clearly affects what the tail can do so credit to our men and women in uniform but also the fact that this was a credit to our men and women and. reform but also the fact that this was a significant development many of your fellow republicans and a significant development many of your fellow republicans have criticized the leaving of the cheney keeps leaving soon what do you think criticized the leaving of the cheney keeps leaving soon and what do you think i've struggled with that truth larry i've had occasion to i've struggled with that truth larry i've
9:03 am
had occasion to be in turkey a few times and i have met with a wan be in turkey a few times and i have met with. both and turkey on occasion and once here too i had hoped both and turkey on occasion and once here too i had hoped that that he would be a leader of turkey that that that he would be a leader of turkey that would be positive i advocated for turkey being brought would be positive i advocated for turkey being brought into nato. but i've been very concerned about an already into nato. but i've been very concerned about a number of his actions i've been concerned about him frankly playing footsies with
9:04 am
a number of his actions i've been concerned about him frankly playing footsies with the russians. and you know i do know a little bit of the russians. and you know i do know a little bit of some of the inside things that went on with the kurds they fought with us and they were fighting with light some of the inside things that went on with the kurds they fought with us and they were fighting with the light weapons for a long time because in baghdad wouldn't help them get the heavy weaponry they need weapons for a long time because by. dead wouldn't help them get the heavy weaponry they need they were they are our most reliable fighters in syria against ide they were they are our most reliable fighters in syria against isis so i haven't been pleased with the way that was so i haven't been pleased with the way that was handled. i do know that they're the p.k.
9:05 am
handled. i do know that they're the p.k. k. kurds have been and that's a different group of the ones that way kurds have been and that's a different group of the ones that we fought with for the most part but there's a group of kurds that have been doing these incursions into fought with for the most part but there's a group of kurds that have been doing these incursions into turkey and killing civilians and i know that the the turks in order want to particular had a real to turkey in killing civilians and i know that the the turks in order want to particular had a real problem that but the way this was done to come in. problem that but the way this was done to come in. and now that they do have a buffer zone maybe that and now that they do have a buffer zone maybe that will help calm things down it looks like the ceasefire is
9:06 am
holding but i do it will help calm things down it looks like the ceasefire is holding but i didn't feel good about it felt like we would turn our back on some people that didn't feel good about it felt like we would turn our back on some people that that bled with us when it really mattered. and wound so mental and bled with us when it really mattered. and wounds to mental and he's killing and he's asked. i threw up like yeah well when i go right obama won i won broad obama announced the killing of all ben ladan he took 9 minutes. the kill filing will ben ladan he took 9 minutes by contrast donald trump slope for 15 minutes 40 minutes in a news conference contest donald trump slow for 15 minutes 40 minutes in a news conference declaring by god he was a whimpering coward who died last at that ought to be clear about god he was
9:07 am
a whimpering coward who died like a dog you think you overdid it then well obviously some people in the media you think you overdid it then well obviously some people in the media are saying that and i must say that. i'm never saying that and i must say that. i'm not happy quite often with some of the language that president trump uses i don't consider it to be presidential one you know from out happy quite often with some of the language that president trump uses i don't consider it to be presidential one you know some of it is too long but you know i just love it just too long but you know. just and we had a look at the bigger picture to let me give you an example of trump and we had
9:08 am
a look at the bigger picture to let me give you an example of trump i was always a free trader in the congress but over the years tried to i was always a free trader in the congress but over the years tried to talk to the chinese i went to beijing and met with the chinese i talked to europe a talk to the chinese i went to beijing and met with the chinese i talked to europeans about how the trading was not always fair and even though i was a friends about how the trading was not always fair and even though i was a free trade is no question that many of our trade partners were taken advantage of was so i think that trump as we try to is no question that many of our trade partners were taken advantage of was so i think that trump has been doing president trump is trying to do the right thing with regard to the europe had been doing president trump is trying to do the right thing with regard to the europeans and now he's got the great with the japanese and south koreans and chinese but instead
9:09 am
now he's got the great with the japanese and south koreans and chinese but so i like the fact that he has done it because the minute so i like the fact that he has done it because many of us did not do what was necessary in the past but my problem has been again some of us did not do what was necessary in the past but my problem has been again sometimes how he does it doing all of these trade agreements at once sometimes how he does it doing all of these trade agreements at once. you know causes some some problems i would look to be like what. you know causes some some problems i would look to be likely to make more sense and do it in syria them one after the other or maybe 2 are but so i made more sense to do it in syria them one after the other or maybe 2 are but. so it's sort of a pattern but he you know he didn't provide us to be sort of
9:10 am
a pattern but he you know he didn't provide us to be a present like presence of the place as if i was as a sister of the people as a differently i asked to write it down as a dinner for that that and that that those calls at birth call and some time. because it's a problem for himself. and sop because his problem for him self when silence would have been better for example he informed me of putin about balance would have been better for example he informed me of putin above but daddy out of the. boy for haploid and that happened but he. really didn't need the greens the democrat congressional leadership surely as. well congressional leadership. sheeny f. . well i've got to 3 actions of that number one he informed the russians so that
9:11 am
they wouldn't get to 3 actions or that number one he informed the russian so that there wouldn't be an inadvertent conflict in the airspace that we were going to be an inadvertent conflict in the airspace that we were going to so i think we did the right thing but buys in the russians i think the russians did the right so i think we did the right thing but buys in the russians i think the russians did the right thing and. the critics i don't think will crawling out of this at will ok ok to say that i didn't say oh don't go coming at it so we can i don't say we'll come in we can't say we're coming he would come in low we didn't tell him what the purpose was but the russians acted respond our company would come in low we didn't tell them what the purpose was but the russians acted responsibly and so did we dove what you know is mistaken conflict that's possibly and so did we'd ovoid you know a mistaken conflict that's point number one point number 2 own at least a couple occasions went to one point number 2 own at least
9:12 am
a couple occasions president clinton called me and said we're going to go and we're going to bomb a place or president clinton called me and said we're going to go and we're going to bomb a place or we're going to do this ken and i want you to know and i would appreciate we're going to do this can and i want you to know and i would appreciate it if you would be subpoenaed for you to be shipped and when we did it i don't see and hear answer from well we didn't get it i don't sit here and on and on and i know what and i know it one instance at sure i asked him can you get your intelligence community to call me one instance it was sure i asked him can you get your intelligence community to call me and give me more information about this most of the time with the only one and give me more information about this. most of the time with only one exception i've supported the president when he took these actions so but there has been
9:13 am
a real problem in this city would lead exception i've supported the president when he took these actions so but there has been a real problem in this city with leaks i mean if places like it like a sieve and if put in place of his illegal money check a santa if it ends. and there foods of any chance that anybody accidentally inadvertently oh whatever. at least action or to the whole sanely inadvertently or whatever were leaked or told somebody this is going to happen you could have had labs at stake so about it this is going to happen you could have had labs at stake so but but it and there is one and mike and cern's is a republican my 2nd own concerns republicans don't talk to democrats the house and dog the senate the senate and all the house a president doesn't talk to democrats the house and dog the senate the senate and
9:14 am
