Meadows on impeachment: Here’s what House Dems are really afraid of


THAT PROCESS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. JOINING ME NOW FROM OUTSIDE THE MEETING ROOM REPUBLICAN MARK MEADOWS A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE. GOOD TO HAVE YOU.>>GREAT TO BE WITH YOU, MARTHA.>>Martha: YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THE INTRO AND DEMOCRATS SAYING IT’S A DESPERATE MOVE AND ALL ABOUT PROCESS IN TERMS OF WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT AND NOT SUBSTANCE. WHAT DO YOU SAY?>>I THINK WE’RE COMPLAINING ABOUT BOTH. AS THE SUBSTANCE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THE FACT YOUR VIEWERS CAN’T JUDGE FOR THEMSELVES. I’M NEVER SEEN ANYTHING QUITE LIKE THIS AND JIM JORDAN IS RIGHT. IT’S REACHED THE BOILING POINT WE’RE GIVING ADAM SCHIFF THE OPPORTUNITIES TO LET THE CAMERAS IN AND LET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE JUDGE FOR THEMSELVES. WHAT’S THERE TO HIDE? IF WE’RE TALKING ABOUT TRANSPARENCY, LET’S LET ALL THE TESTIMONY OUT THERE. HERE’S WHAT THEY’RE AFRAID OF. THEY’RE AFRAID THE LEAKS THEY’VE BEEN PUT OUGHT IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS WILL START TO HAVE THE REST OF THE STORY WE’RE HEARING BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN THEIR IMPEACHMENT NARRATIVE WILL START TO FALL APART. WE BELIEVE IT’S TIME WE HAVE AN OPEN AND FAIR PROCESS. FAIR TO THE PRESIDENT AND FAIR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>Martha: SO WE HAD CONGRESSMAN RATCLIFF ON THE SHOW LAST NIGHT. AND HE BASICALLY SAID HE QUESTIONS MR. TAYLOR AND ASKED HIM IF THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO AND WHETHER THERE WAS ANYTHING WITHHELD. NOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT TAYLOR’S TESTIMONY FROM YESTERDAY AND THIS IS ONE OF THE MORE PROMINENT PIECE OF IT THAT’S GOTTEN A LOT OF ATTENTION HE SAID AMBASSADOR SUNDLAND SAID EVERYTHING INCLUDING SECURITY ASSISTANCE AND WANTED A PUBLIC STATEMENT ABOUT ORDERING SUCH INVESTIGATIONS. WHAT IS THERE. WHAT MORE STO THE STORY WAS THERE WHEN YOU WERE IN THE ROOM YOU WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND.>>WE CAN’T TALK ABOUT SPECIFICS THAT’S WHY WE WANT A TRANSPARENT PROCESS. NARRATIVE WE HEARD FROM BILL TAYLOR YESTERDAY OR AMBASSADOR TAYLOR THE NARRATIVE WAS NOT CONSISTENT WITH TESTIMONY FROM AT LEAST TWO OTHER WITNESSES AND OTHER CROSS-EXAMINATION DONE BY JOHN RATCLIFFE AND OTHERS. WHEN WE START TO SEE THE INCONSISTENCIES WE THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR A FULL PICTURE ON THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS AMERICAN PEOPLE AND EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS THAT SHOULD BE ASKED TO VOTE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER SHOULD HAVE THE BENEFIT.>>Martha: TONIGHT THERE’S A REQUEST FROM JIM JORDAN AND JIM NUNES TO REPRESENTATIVE ADAM SCHIFF SAYING THEY WANT AN INTERVIEW WITH THE WHISTLEBLOWER AND ANY INDIVIDUALS RELIED ON TO ASSEMBLE THAT COMPLAINT. WHERE’S THAT GOING TO GO?>>I THINK IT WILL GO NOWHERE WITH ADAM SCHIFF BECAUSE HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THIS WHISTLEBLOWER’S ALLOCATIONS, MANY OF WHICH, BY THE WAY, I DON’T KNOW THIS HAS BEEN REPORT, BUT MANY ALLEGATIONS THE WHISTLEBLOWER HAS PUT FORTH HAS BEEN DIRECTLY CONTRADICTED BY EVEN THE DEMOCRATS’ STAR WITNESSES. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM THEM. IN AMERICA YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FACE YOUR ACCUSER AND I CAN TELL YOU WHEN YOU FIND THIS OUT, WHEN WE START TO LOOK AT THE WHISTLEBLOWER AND LOOK AT HIM, WE’LL SEE THEY DIDN’T HAVE FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE AND WANT TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE.>>Martha: I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD LIKE AT THE PROFS AND SAY A NUMBER OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT INTO THAT ROOM AND I THINK YOU’RE RIGHT. I THINK AMERICANS WANT TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE STRANS — TRANSCRIPTS AND PROCESS BECAUSE WE’RE TALKING SOMETHING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES 12 MONTHS FROM A NATIONAL ELECTION. THIS IS NEVER HAPPENED TO SOMEONE WHO IS IN THEIR FIRST TERM AND HEADING TOWARDS ELECTION. THAT’S CLEARLY UNPRECEDENTED. I WANT IT TO KNOW IF THE POLLS CONCERN YOU THE NEW POLLS FROM QUINNIPIAC SHOW 55% OF THOSE POLLED APPROVE OF THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE OTHER POLL WE SHOEFD LAST NIGHT WHICH IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUT IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUTER IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUTE IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUT L IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUT LIE IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN OUT LIER AND 53% SUPPORT. DO YOU THINK YOUR LOSING THE PUBLIC ARGUMENT? THE PRESIDENT CALLED FOR FOLKS TO GET TOUGHER ON YOUR SIDE.>>I THINK WHEN YOU ONLY HEAR FROM ONE SIDE THE POLLS MOVE THAT WAY BECAUSE THEY’RE ONLY HEARING ONE SIDE OF THE STORE I TRUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I KNOW YOU TRUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WHEN THEY LOOK AT THE FACTS, THEY SAY, WELL, THEY DID THIS WITH A WHOLE RUSSIA COLLUSION CONSPIRACY AND THERE WASN’T SUPPORT FOR THAT AND WHY THEY’RE HAVING TO DO A DIFFERENT TACTIC HERE. HERE’S HOW BAD IT IS, MARTHA. I’VE BEEN IN THE ROOM NOW ALMOST 70 HOURS OF TESTIMONY I CANT REVIEW THE DEPOSITIONS I WAS A PART OF AND LISTENED TO IN REAL TIME WITHOUT A DEMOCRAT STAFFER LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER.>>Martha: YOU’RE ON THE COMMITTEE. DO YOU THINK IT WAS A GOOD STUNT OR BAD STUNT TODAY TO FORCE THEIR WAY IN? PEOPLE REMEMBER TREY GOWDY AND THE BENGHAZI SITUATION SAYING ONLY PEOPLE IN THE ROOM ARE THE COMMITTEE.>>IT WAS DESIGNED TO CREATE A REPORT THAT WAS COMING TO CONGRESS. THIS IS DIFFERENT. EVERY MEMBER WILL HAVE TO VOTE ON THIS AND THIS IS DIFFERENT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE THERE’S NOT A SINGLE CLASSIFIED THING DISCUSSED. THERE’S NO REASON WHY THE CAMERAS CAN’T BE THERE. BENGHAZI HAD CLASSIFIED AND PRIVILEGED INFORMATION WE DIDN’T WANT TO SHARE WITH OUR ENEMIES. THIS IS A DIFFERENT SCENARIO.>>Martha: ANY BIG HEADLINES FROM THE COOPER TESTIMONY TODAY BEFORE WE LET YOU GO?>>NO BIG HEADLINES. I WILL SAY SOME OF THE FACTS CONTRADICTED THE WITNESS FROM YESTERDAY AND WE’LL HAVE TO RECONCILE THAT.>>Martha: IN WHAT WAY?>>SOME OF WHAT SHE SAID WAS INVOLVED IN MAKING CERTAIN DECISIONS WERE AT ODDS WITH WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE AMBASSADOR YESTERDAY.>>Martha: OKAY.

  • fox pushing fake polls . rememder who you work we the people and keep pushing fake polls and lies , fox news will not survie what is coming

  • Alex Shapsenzon says:

    There is no whistle-blower, why wont they understand that, its all just a ploy to get Trump out of office, Democrats need to be arrested for this unlawful behavior.

  • In California, for instance, the average temperature shifts will be more subtle. But new climate models show there will be more frequent swings from periods of intense rain to extreme drought, a phenomenon known as weather whiplash. That will put extra stresses on dams and farmers and is likely to lead to more severe mudslides.

  • MARTHA MACCALLUM ……….. the Impeachment polls you mentioned on your program are questionable since the figures can sources who are biased against the POTUS. Before you put those figures out to the public, please confirm that they are accurate, true & factual!!!

  • Freedom isnt free, time to pick your side, and be rdy to defend your way of life. Never bend the knee to this liberal communist vermin. The time for talk is over. What more evidence do you need to see to know that you DO NOT MATTER to these vermin unless you tow their line

  • Mr. Adam shift has turned our country into a joke for all the people that are watching I can't believe that you're not pissed off about it

  • Then by all means, open the doors so Everyone can hear what the Dems are doing and so their scam can fall apart faster! Cause It WILL!!! LMAO!

  • The Dems aren't nervous, Dumb Donald the Racist Crook continues to dig himself deeper every day…. Lead us, oh chosen one !!

  • Poor ignorant suckers.

    Well, here's the consequences of Matt Goetz and the rest of the Merry Morons storming a SCIF:

    None will ever pass an FBI background check for a higher position.

    None will ever be allowed access to Classified Information.

    Every action has consequences. This would include you Mr. Meadows! Trump loves the uneducated.

    Mr. Meadow's claims only back that up. This is what desperation looks like. Did you idiots expect any other outcome after hitching yourselves to Donald Trump? How stupid are you? All these fun and games do not negate the truth Lindsey. And these so called "secret proceedings" you claim are going on, you could at least tell the truth. There are Republicans as part of this inquiry. As for challenging the "whistleblower". even after all these years, you still don't know how the process works. All of these histrionics will not change the truth. You are defending a criminal traitor to this country. Get over yourselves. Much like the end of Nixon's impeachment, the Republicans held out until their position became absolutely untenable. Many of those who defended him right up until the last had their careers destroyed and left office. And, much like this situation, many will go to jail. Tired of winning yet?

  • The Republicans remind me of the 100+ water buffalo that, with that stupid look on their face, watched
    the 8 lions eat one of their own 30 yards away.

  • I am a democrat. And after looking at how evil the democrats political party has treated the president just because they hate him.i will be voting Republican in 2020.The democrats are all about lies crime and selling out America to the Chinese dictator ship government

  • Neville Bennett says:

    The Republicans need to stand up to whole issue of impeachment and not just the process. I heard many experts on this matter stated that the President has done nothing wrong to be impeached.

  • The only one that didnt get rich from politics is trump! The swamp fights dirty. Any testimonies gathered in secret illegal meetings held by Shift should be dismissed . Maybe their biggest mistake will be they violate the presidents rights of office and as a citizen and it’s all for nothing but brainwashing the brainwashed !

  • Adam Schiff and Joseph McCarthy are both cut from the same cloth, although separated by the passage of 65 years! Both are self-seeking narcissistic witch hunters that believe they are entitled to undermine the country's Constitutional laws of due process. But as corrupt as McCarthy was with his unproven brutal and truculent interrogative tactics, he at least he carried out his interrogations out in the open, filmed with nationwide television coverage. He attacked person after person (including President Dwight Eisenhower), until it backfired when he tried to take down Joseph Welch, special counsel for the Army. Finally, Joseph Welch had endured enough, and turned his anger on Senator McCarthy. Welch said: "Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you no sense of decency? This reply discredited McCarthy and helped to turn the tide of public against him. I believe that is the tactic that needs to employed now against Adam Schiff, because he is far worse than McCarthy ever was in 1954! It is sad how history often repeats itself, as one Congressional narcissist just replaces another narcissist— from the Senate 65 years later! But unlike McCarthy, Schiff is afraid of the transparency that an open investigation would generate. It would seem that absolute power corrupts absolutely— at least in 2019 Congressional politics!

  • vicente cabanillas says:

    Hey Fox News sheeps guess what?THERE ARE REPUBLICANS ON ALL THOSE COMMITEES, THEY ARE FOLLOWING THE LAW. Those barging in are breaking the law. AND THERE WILL BE PUBLIC HEARINGS!

  • What are you hiding Adam shift with your secrets your lies your made up statements that supposedly the president spoke. I will be watching and when this all blows up in your face I will be watching and when it blows up in YOUR FACE. I WILL BE LAUGHING AT YOU AND YOUR PARTY OF HEATERS I'm going to vote for Trump again!!!!!! I WILL NEVER BE A DEMOCRAT You all seem to be liars and cheaters lining your own pocket at the American people's expense you all should be ashamed of yourself . If you love this country vote Republican All the way down let no dems in office!!!!!

  • I'm laughing because the House Democrats have nothing to be afraid of. Mark Meadows is a snake oil salesman. Taylor's testimony damns Trump, and Taylor's a genuine American Patriot who served under Bush. The Republicans are screaming to distract the nation but their disingenuous arguments fail a reality check; the impeachment inquiry is following Constitutional rules and no smoke and mirrors can change that. So expect these liars to scream, and yell ,and go down with the president.

  • The last time the demonrats held open hearings they got egg on their faces. Schiff's closed door tactic is constructed to save face, manipulate facts, and to further extend the issues when the Republicans ask to see the transcripts — hence, another battle ensues. We are 13 months away from the next election and the demonrats will continue their pursuit of removing POTUS from the elections. The demonrats have forgotten that the American people voted for President Trump and they continue to undermine our choice. The demonrats are nauseating.

  • He defended himself against her Democrat loaded questions quite well I thought. Quick thinking over that Benghazi comparison which was really off-topic. Ridiculous.

  • we are not at a point for the public to judge anything..this is an investigation, same as it has always been and same as it was during the benghazi investigation…democrats are not afraid of anything excepts getting all of the facts first, without obstruction or interference. there are 47 republicans who are on the committees and are in the rooms and are involved…these guys are just running interference and creating a distraction for the dictator in chief

  • Just curious when people are going to acknowledge that we have a communism problem? From academics to politics and Hollywood! Even our sports institutions lick the boots of communists in Beijing. This entire process is being done Soviet style! Do you see the problem here?

  • How can anyone defend trump's nonsense? he just declared a border wall in Colorado!…did he sell New Mexico to Mexico? or China? or Putin? come Friday i will be proved right and Russian S-400 rockets will be arriving.. they are in Serbia already prepared to defend against NATO!..what a difference a day can make! One day you live in the greatest world power and the next trump and turkey take over the middle east…

  • How about passing the 2020 budget that started 1 Oct. The government is operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) until 21 Nov. Then, they need to pass the budget, kick the can down the road (extend CR) or shutdown.

    They need to do the jobs we voted them in to do.

  • If the Dems hold SECRET 1sided "trial" w/out due process Do YOU think the Dems are safeguarding YOUR constitutional rights when they draft and pass laws? Should that not be a FLASHING WARNING SIGN!

  • ramblings adrift says:

    The stupid bastards can't even keep track of their own lies. This is going to drive Trump to victory. The polls are useless and many of them from left wing sources.

  • Christina Radwell says:

    It's about arresting President Donald Trump arrested and have Attorney General Barr disbarred before the next election do the democrats will proceed with voiding the Constitution for socialism under the World Order Charter.

  • When police conduct an investigation, the standard answer when asked, "What's the status", their response is "no comment about an ongoing investigation". The point for openness will be if there is a trial in the Senate. Save the rhetoric for then.

  • I am SO damned tired of GOPers inability to respond PROPERLY to things the should know!!~ This proves to me that these people are not good debaters., Well, I am. And I know

    Why BENGHAZI is a stupid rebuttal from Democrats. But if the GOPers don't know why its a stupid rebuttal we get responses that are redundant like Meadows response. Listen to his.. Then read mine…

    The Benghazi Committee WAS FRIGGIN VOTED ON BY THE FULL HOUSE AND AUTHORIZED TO DO WHAT THEY WERE DOING IN PRIVATE!!

    THIS COMMITTEE HAS NOT BEEN VOTED ON! They are just doing whatever the hell they want to do UNAUTHORIZED!!

  • Just so I understand – it's ok for Nunes, but not for anyone on the other side? Our government is a f'n joke. The House and Senate need a thorough …gotta be careful with my wording so I don't offend anyone… cleansing. Sorry, SJW's – that's the only word I can think of at the moment. We have some dirty Republican and Democrat operators in our Congress. Maybe we need to send them all home and start over, from scratch. I don't know what the solution is, but it's clear that these folks are not working for us anymore. And Mark Meadows would be among the first to whom I'd show the door.

  • Why aren't these treasonous criminals being arrested. That is ALL
    WE THE PEOPLE WANT…..this is a costly waste of our time and money……for what……..WE WANT JUSTICE! DROP THE NET…..NOW

  • Both parties are bad but the htprocracy of the Republican party is unbelievable.

    Bill Clinton lied about cheating on Hillary. The fact that he did so under oath was the only illegal thing they could use for impeachment.

    On the other hand Trump cheated on his third(?) wife while she was pregnant and used campaign funds for silence money, which is definitely illegal!

    Profiting off the Presidency is also illegal. Everyone knows it and he doesn't try to hide it either. He bragged that the Saudi's bought an entire floor at Trunp tower and he only golfs at his resorts!

    And when you fire the person that is investigating you, that's callled obstruction! Anyone who didnt think so, was both lying to us and themselves

    Yes there was no collusion. But there was attempted collusion when Jr. met with the Russians.

    Finally we have Ukraine, where most Republicans say no smoking gun. Didn't need one, since Trump, Giuliani and Mulvaney already admitted to it.

    Why do conservatives still vote Republican when all they do is lie to them. It was Republicans who made Gov larger with homeland security and the NSA. They are worse on the economy, debt or deficit and put two wars on credit card, the opposite of fiscal conservatism. As far as abortion and immigration, they've always happened and will continue to do. In fact, one could argue that Capitalism needs immigration!

  • "should have that BENEFIT" ??? Due Process is NOT a "Benefit" ~~~~!!!!! friggin' pathetic man-child! " I think she contadicted… ? " Moron!

  • Billy Landenberger says:

    End this fraud by nothing more than a pack of liars that are afraid that President Trump has the goods on these SOBs, and there gig is up.

  • Michael Springer says:

    It would be sure more appropriate to ask what the Republicans are afraid of. In my 70 year, I never seen so many, so terrified of an investigation that could either prove guilt or innocence. On that innocence though, well that's what has got them all apoplectic. They know trump is not innocent, graham admitted it. 55% of the American people want to know what happened. It seems our Republicans are about the only people that don't want know. So but out let this proceed. If the administration would cooperate, they could say their piece and we could get this done faster. But done we will be. The majority will not be denied. Were more powerful than a few worms in government. Truth will out.

  • Fox news is infected with fake news. These polls are fake, they are polling illegal aliens!! Why is no one reporting on the BILLIONS given to Ukraine for "aide"under Obama that mysteriously disappeared??

  • The GOP is scared of being exposed for accepting Ukraine money. Thats why they keep resigning. Thats what guiliani homeboys are known for doing. Dark illegal campaign funding for GOP n democrats Basically a form hush money. They gettn extra money so they stay extra quiet.

  • Tanya Louise Allen says:

    It sure would be nice if the Democratic party would stop wasting time with this and do the job they were hired to do. Anyone who wonders what "impeachment" should look like, go study the foootage from the Nixon era. It was NOTHING like this.

  • House Dems, like all intelligent people worldwide, are afraid of a Fascist Regime completely taking over the reigns of government. Barr’s announcement of a purge is reason to be very afraid that the Fascists may be on the verge of a self-sustaining autocracy.

  • The swamp is under attack and they are taking off their gloves to hide their illegal acts and pay offs.   I am tired of hearing the impeachment word and how GOP is acting like weenies.  How ridiculous.  These double standards are driving many level thinking Americans to push back and start voicing their thoughts.  No more liberals yelling over me or tossing garbage or insults at me.  The democrats and liberals cannot force their ideas by yelling, screaming, and protesting.  These acts do not make them right.  Trump is an extraordinary patriot that has taken so much abuse by most media, Hollywood pricks and liberal bullies.  Not too many MEN would have survived.  Any women would have folded months ago.  Yes, men and women are not made the same and do not have the same strengths.  Don't try and shoove down my throat that they do.  As they do not.

  • Federal Judge has Ruled that the Democrat Impeachment Process is legal AND the Mueller Report will be released unredacted to the Democrats.

  • theresa bollman says:

    Never in all my years thought I would see any party try to do this to our country. Those who were not happy about Barack Obama becoming our president in 2008 had to buckle up and accept it. I'd like to believe we would have come against our politicians if they ever tried to do such a destructive thing to do to a duly elected president and thusly to our country and the hard working people of the United States.

  • GravInducedSleepTrac says:

    FAKE POLL MARTHA!!!! SILENT MAJORITY ARE DISCUSSED WITH THIS IMPEACHMENT! TRUMP IS THE BEST POTUS WE HAVE EVER HAD! MAGA/KAD 2020!!!

  • Democrats are always crying for transparency when it comes to the Republicans but when it comes to the Democrats they want to hide everything and leak information cherry picking

  • Patriots will not let these assholes impeach our president. Remember this, for every action there is a reaction. You will not like the reaction if you think you will impeach our president.

  • Consistency? There hasn't been any consistency for over 50 years. Ever since the world watched the thugs put a bullet in Kennedy's head.
