PRESIDENT FROM TAKING FURTHER
MILITARY ACTION.
MANY REPUBLICANS SAY THIS COULD
ACTUALLY WEAKEN AMERICA'S
POSITION IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
JOINING ME HOUSE MINORITY LEADER
KEVIN McCARTHY.
ALWAYS A PLEASURE.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING WITH
ME.
>> THANK YOU.
MARIA: LET'S GO THROUGH THE WAR
POWERS ACT.
THE HOUSE OBVIOUSLY ON FRIDAY
VOTED, CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE
BIT THIS AND WHERE THIS IS
GOING?
>> WELL THIS RESOLUTION WE
PASSED IS GOING NOWHERE BECAUSE
ITS WAY THEY PASSED IT.
DID A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION.
YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THIS,
MARIA, A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
IS ONLY USED FOR SOAPBOX DERBY
OR GIVING A MEDAL WE DID TO
JACK NICKLAUS.
THIS IS NON-BINDING.
THIS WILL NOT GO TO THE
PRESIDENT T WILL NOT CHANGE THE
WAR POWERS ACT.
WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE DONE,
THINK ABOUT WHAT THE PRESIDENT
TRUMP HAS DONE, IT IS HIS
NATURAL INSTINCT TO ALWAYS PUT
AMERICA FIRST AND KEEP US SAFE.
THE DEMOCRATS INSTINCT IS TO
BLAME AMERICA FIRST.
INSTEAD OF HAVING A RESOLUTION
ON THE FLORIDA CONDEMNING IRAN
FOR SHOOTING DOWN A CIVILIAN
AIRCRAFT.
WE HAVE RESOLUTION ON THE FLOOR
THIS WEEK, STANDING WITH THOSE
INDIVIDUALS WHO SEEK FREEDOM IN
IRAN?
I DON'T BELIEVE WE WILL BECAUSE
THESE DEMOCRATS WILL DO ANYTHING
TO DEFAME THE PRESIDENT OVER
DEFENDING THIS NATION.
MARIA: EIGHT DEMOCRATS OPPOSE
THIS RESOLUTION.
SIX IN THE SWING DISTRICTS.
WON BY DONALD TRUMP.
TALK ABOUT THAT.
I KNOW YOU TALKED BEFORE IN THE
PAST ABOUT THOSE SWING DISTRICTS
REALLY WATCHING AND PRESSURING
NANCY PELOSI TO NOT GO FORWARD
WITH THE IMPEACHMENT.
WE KNOW THE ARTICLES ARE GOING
TO THE SENATE THIS UPCOMING
WEEK.
>> WELL, LAST YEAR IT WOULD TAKE
19 NEW SEATS TO WIN THE
MAJORITY.
THIS YEAR ONLY TAKES 18 BECAUSE
A DEMOCRAT, JEFF VAN DREW
SWITCHED PARTY OVER IMPEACHMENT
IN THE WAY NANCY PELOSI HAS BEEN
TREATING.
HE IS REPUBLICAN NOW.
WHERE HIS POSITIONS ARE.
THERE ARE 30 DEMOCRATS WHO SIT
IN SEATS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP
CARRIED.
WE ONLY NEED 18 TO WIN THE
MAJORITY.
THEY'RE SEEING TIDE CONTINUING
TO SHIFT AS NANCY PELOSI,
SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, CONTINUES
TO STAND WITH THE SOCIALIST WING
OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, INSTEAD
OF STANDING WHERE AMERICA WANTS
TO SEE US.
MARIA: SO WHAT HAPPENS THIS
WEEK?
YOU HAVE GOT VOTE ON THE HOUSE
MANAGERS FOR PEACH PETRIAL.
THIS IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, WHICH I
ASSUME WILL BEGIN THIS UPCOMING
WEEK COULD GO FOR SEVERAL WEEKS.
TELL US HOW YOU SEE IT PLAYING
OUT?
>> WELL, WE FIRST HAVE TO NAME
THE MANAGERS AND VOTE ON IT.
REMEMBER WHERE THE DEMOCRATS
SAID THIS WAS SO URGENT THEY HAD
TO MOVE THIS BEFORE END OF THE
YEAR.
NOW NANCY PELOSI HAS BEEN
HOLDING THE PAPERS?
SOMETIMES WE'LL VOTE AFTER THEIR
CAUCUS WOULD BE WEDNESDAY OR
THURSDAY.
I FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE
SENATE TO EVEN START IMPEACHMENT
THIS WEEK AND WHAT HAPPENS WITH
IMPEACHMENT IS, THE SENATORS
HAVE TO BE IN THEIR DESKS.
THEY CANNOT HAVE A PHONE.
THEY CANNOT TALK TO ONE ANOTHER.
THEY STAY IN THEIR DESKS.
WITH THE CLINTON IMPEACHMENT IT
LASTED FIVE WEEKS THIS IS THE
DIRTY LITTLE SECRET IS TALKING
ABOUT, WHY THE SECRET HELD THESE
PAPERS.
REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED IN THE
LAST NOMINATION PROCESS WHERE
THE DNC CHAIRMAN, DEBBIE
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ HAD TO RESIGN
THE NIGHT BEFORE THE NOMINATION
CONVENTION STARTED BECAUSE THEY
HAD FOUND OUT THEY HAD CHEATED
SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS FROM THE
OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME THE
NOMINEE.
THEY ARE DOING THE EXACT SAME
THING RIGHT NOW.
IOWA CAUCUS IS ON
FEBRUARY 3rd.
BERNIE SANDERS IS IN FIRST
PLACE.
WHAT THIS DOES IS, THIS BENEFITS
JOE BIDEN.
THIS HARMS SENATOR SANDERS WHO
IS IN FIRST PLACE AND COULD
BECOME THEIR NOMINEE, BECAUSE HE
WILL BE STUCK IN THE CHAIR,
BECAUSE NANCY PELOSI HELD THE
PAPERS DIFFERENT THAN WHAT SHE
SAID TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WHY
SHE HAD TO MOVE SO URGENTLY.
MARIA: YOU THINK IT IS BY DESIGN
THAT NANCY PELOSI IS SENDING THE
ARTICLES NOW, SLOW WALKING,
REALLY SLOW-WALKING THE IMPEACH
TRIAL TO HAVE THE SENATORS IN
THE ROOM?
THAT IS COLLUSION?
THAT IS OBSTRUCTION, KEEPING
BERNIE SANDERS AT BAY, CLEARING
THE DECKS FOR JOE BIDEN, IS THAT
WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?
>> THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I'M
SAYING.
REMEMBER WHAT THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY DID THIS TIME.
THEY REMOVED SUPERDELEGATES FROM
THE FIRST ROUND OF VOTING
BECAUSE WHAT THEY HAD DONE TO
SENATOR POWERS.
NOW THEY DON'T HAVE THE POWER
HAD HE GOT TO THE CONVENTION
FARELY.
WHAT POWER DOES THE SPEAKER
HAVE.
REMEMBER WHEN SHE FIRST STARTED
IMPEACHMENT I SENT HER A LETTER
ABOUT PROCESS.
COULD WE HAVE A FAIR PROCESS,
LAYING OUT 10 QUESTIONS, EXACT
SAME PROCESS FOR BILL CLINTON,
RICHARD NIXON.
SHE IGNORED THAT.
DIDN'T CARE ABOUT PROCESS.
SHE NOW HYPOCRISY IN THE SENATE
WHERE SHE HAS NO POWER?
SHE TOLD THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IT
WAS URGENT.
SHE HAD TO MOVE SO FAST.
THE ONLY REASON SHE IS DOING
THIS, NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT,
IT IS HARMING THE BERNIE
SANDERS, SENATOR WHO IS COMING
INTO FIRST PLACE WHO COULD WIN
IOWA AND PROPEL THEM SELF THE
NOMINEE.
EXACT SAME THING THEY DID TO HIM
FOUR YEARS AGO.
MARIA: THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE,
ACTUALLY.
THAT IS BREAKING NEWS,
CONGRESSMAN.
THANKS FOR JOINING US THIS
MORNING.
WE'LL SEE YOU SOON.
KEVIN McCARTHY.
UP NEXT MY INTERVIEW WITH OWLS
OUTSPOKEN -- FORMER WHITE HOUSE
STRATEGIST STEVE BANNON.
WHY HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHOULD
DELAY THE STATE OF THE UNION
