Jim Jordan reacts to the House vote condemning Trump


STARTS RIGHT NOW.>>Martha: GOOD EVENING, BRET. A GREAT STORY, GOOD TO SEE YOU TONIGHT. ALL RIGHT, FIRST IT WAS COLLUSION, THEN THE ARGUMENT WAS DESTRUCTION OBSTRUCTION, AND OTHER DEMOCRATS WANT TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT FOR RACISM. MOMENTS AGO, THE HOUSE VOTED TO OFFICIALLY CONDEMN THE PRESIDENT’S REMARKS ABOUT THE WOMEN KNOWN AS THE SQUAD, THE FOUR FRESHMAN CONGRESSWOMAN, AND PERHAPS SET THE STARTING POINT FOR THIS THIRD CHAPTER IN THE IMPEACHMENT STORY. SO HAS THE GOALPOST FOR IMPEACHMENT BEEN MOVED YET AGAI AGAIN?>>COLLUSION OR CONSPIRACY, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT ON THIS PRESIDENT.>>THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMIN IS DURATION OF THE GAUGED OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. I BELIEVE CONGRESS SHOULD STICK TO MY TAKE SOME STEPS.>>IT IS TIME FOR US TO STOP ALLOWING THIS PRESIDENT TO MAKE A MOCKERY OUT OF OUR CONSTITUTION. IT’S TIME FOR US TO IMPEACH THIS PRESIDENT.>>Martha: SO NOW, BACK IN THE POLLS AFTER A DEVICE A FEW DAYS, THE DEMOCRATS HAVE UNITED AGAIN AGAINST THE PRESIDENT. NANCY PELOSI IN A VERY DRAMATIC MOMENT MOVED TO CONDEMN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ON THE HOUSE FLOOR. PROMPTING REPUBLICAN DOUG COLLINS TO YELL BACK AND TO INSIST THAT HER COMMENT NOW BE STRICKEN FROM THE RECORD.>>EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF THIS INSTITUTION, DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN, SHOULD JOIN US IN CONDEMNING THE PRESIDENT’S RACIST TWEETS. TO DO ANYTHING LESS WOULD BE A SHOCKING REJECTION OF OUR VALUES AND A SHAMEFUL ABDICATION OF OUR OATH OF OFFICE TO PROTECT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I URGE — –>>IS GOING TO GIVE THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IF SHE WOULD LIKE TO REPHRASE THAT, BEARING>>I’VE CLEARED MY REMARKS WITH THE PARLIAMENTARY BEFORE I READ THEM.>>Martha: JUST FOR SOME CONTEXT HERE IN THIS KIND OF CONDEMNATION ON THE FLOOR OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, YOU REMEMBER WHEN ILHAN OMAR WAS CRITICIZED FOR ANTI-SEMITIC REMARKS LIKE THIS TWEET IN WHICH SHE WROTE THAT SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL WAS “ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMIN’S, BABY.” THE HOUSE THEN BASICALLY FOLDED ON THAT CONDEMNATION. HE ARGUED ABOUT IT FOR DAYS. THEY CHOSE, IN THE END, NOT TO EVEN NAME HER PER SE, AND LUMPED IN HER COMMENTS BY COMING OUT AGAINST ALL FORMS OF HATE SPEECH. AT THE TIME, SPEAKER PELOSI REACTED VERY DIFFERENTLY TO OMAR’S REMARKS.>>IT’S UP TO HER TO EXPLAIN, WHAT I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD THE FULL WEIGHT OF THE WORDS.>>Martha: LET’S BRING IN JIM JORDAN’S AND I, MEMBER OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY AND OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE. AT WHAT WAS IT LIKE ON THE FLOOR TONIGHT WATCHING ALL OF THIS PLAY OUT?>>DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO STOP. THERE ARE SO FOCUSED ON GOING AFTER THIS PRESIDENT, SO FOCUSED ON GETTING TO IMPEACHMENT, I BELIEVE THEY ARE NOT GOING TO STOP AT ANYTHING, EVEN IF IT MEANS BREAKING THE RULES ON THE HOUSE FOR WHERE THERE’S A CERTAIN LEVEL OF DECORUM THAT YOU MUST MAINTAIN. AT THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE DIDN’T DO THAT. HER WORDS SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN DOWN, SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED. UNFORTUNATELY WHAT YOU END UP DOING, EVEN THOUGH THE PARLIAMENTARY HEARING WORLD IN MR. COLLINS FOREVER, SHE JUST WANTED OF HAVING TO VOTE ON THE DEMOCRATS ALL VOTED WITH HER BUT THEY ARE SOLELY FOCUSED ON DOING WHATEVER THEY CAN TO STOP THIS PRESIDENT INSTEAD OF FRANKLY WORKING ON WHAT CAN HELP THE COUNTRY.>>Martha: SHE SAID SHE CLEARED HER COMMENTS WITH THE PARLIAMENTARY.>>OBVIOUSLY SHE DIDN’T, BUT THE PARLIAMENTARIAN WOULD HAVE TOLD THE PERSON PRESIDING OVER THE HOUSE THAT HER WORDS WERE OKAY AND WE WOULD HAVE MOVED ON. SO OBVIOUSLY SHE DIDN’T.>>Martha: A PRESIDENT WORKED PRETTY HARD TO CONTAIN ANY POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN DEFECTORS ON THIS BOAT. FOUR OF THE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE THAT VOTED YES ON THIS. WE ARE GOING TO PUT THEM UP ON THE SCREEN. CUMBERSOME AND HEARD, CONGRESSMAN FITZPATRICK, UPTON, AND BROOKE. YOU VOTED NO TO THIS. DO YOU BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT’S COMMENTS WERE JUSTIFIED IN THAT WE?>>I THINK THE PRESIDENT WAS EXPRESSION THE FRUSTRATION THAT SO MANY AMERICANS ARE FEELING ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON AT THE BORDER. UNDERSTAND THIS, MARTHA. IT WAS JUST A COUPLE MONTHS AGO WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAID THIS IS A CRISIS AND ALL THE DEMOCRATS SAID NO IT’S NOT, IF MANUFACTURED, IT’S CONTRIVED, AND IT WOULDN’T PROVIDE THE MONEY WE NEEDED TO ACTUALLY DEAL WITH THE SITUATION ON THE BORDER. THEN WHEN THE REAL CRISIS GETS WORSE, THE DEMOCRATS SAY WAIT A MINUTE, IT IS A CRISIS, BUT IT’S YOUR FAULT, MR. PRESIDENT, EVEN THOUGH YOU ASKED US EIGHT WEEKS AGO, NINE WEEKS AGO, TEN WEEKS AGO, FOR HELP TO DEAL WITH THIS, SO THE FRUSTRATION HE FEELS IS FRANKLY THE SAME FRUSTRATION THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FEEL WHEN THEY HEAR COMMENTS LIKE ABOLISH I.C.E., ABOLISH DHS, LAWS ARE IMMORAL, NONCITIZENS SHOULD VOTE. THESE DETENTION CENTERS ARE CONCENTRATION CAMPS. AT THE FRUSTRATION HE FEELS AND I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FEEL AND HE WAS EXPRESSING THAT I THINK IN HIS STATEMENTS OVER THE WEEKEND.>>Martha: SO THE FOUR WOMEN WHO CALL THEMSELVES “THE SQUAD” SAID YESTERDAY WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE THE BAIT ON ANY OF THIS AND GET, YOU KNOW, THEY SEEM TO BE SPENDING A LOT OF TIME TALKING ABOUT THIS, ALTHOUGH THEY SAY THAT THEY WANT TO MOVE ON. THEY WERE ON CBS DIED ON THE EVENING NEWS WITH NORAH O’DONNELL, LET’S TAKE A LOOK.>>AREN’T DEALING WITH THE BIGGEST BULLY I’VE EVER HAD TO DEAL WITH IN MY LIFETIME AND TRYING TO PUSH BACK ON THAT AND TRYING TO DO THE JOB THAT WE ALL HAVE BEEN SENT HERE TO DO, WHICH IS CENTERED AROUND THE PEOPLE AT HOME. THIS IS A DISTRACTION.>>DO YOU FEEL ENOUGH REPUBLICANS HAVE SPOKEN UP AGAINST THE PRESIDENT?>>ABSOLUTELY NOT. WE JUST HELD A VOTE TODAY. THE NORMALIZATION OF IT. THE FACT THAT IT’S AGAINST OUR CORE AMERICAN VALUES, THAT THEY WERE CHOOSING HIM OVER COUNTRY.>>Martha: THAT WAS BEASLEY GAYLE KING ON CBS THIS MORNING. WHAT YOU MAKE OF THOSE COMMENTS?>>THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO SAID ABOLISH I.C.E., ABOLISH THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. I MEAN, THESE ARE THE RADICAL POSITIONS THEY HAVE TAKEN. THESE ARE THE SAME INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE SAID THAT THAT DETENTION FACILITIES CAN DEAL WITH THE INFLUX OF — THE AMAZING NUMBERS WE’VE SEEN ON THE BORDER, THEY CALL THESE DETENTION FACILITIES CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND WERE SUPPOSED TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO WORK WITH THEM? IT’S JUST DIFFICULT. AGAIN, I KEEP USING THE WORD FRUSTRATION, BUT I KNOW I — THE PEOPLE I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF REPRESENTING, THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY WE CAN’T COME TOGETHER AND DEAL WITH THE CRISIS THAT’S ON THE BORDER AND NOT HAVE THE KIND OF LANGUAGE WE HEAR FROM THESE FOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.>>Martha: POLITICALLY, IS THIS FIGHT REALLY EXACTLY WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO BE? POLITICS IS ALL ABOUT CONTRAST AND THESE WOMEN ARE CREATING A HECK OF A LOT OF CONTRAST FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FOR YOUR PARTY.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO BE WHERE THE COUNTRY IS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OF HIS LEADERSHIP. TAXES CUT, THE ECONOMY GROWING AT AN UNBELIEVABLE RATE. LOWEST ON EMPLOYMENT IN 50 YEARS, WE ARE OUT OF THE IRAN DEAL, THE EMBASSY IS IN JERUSALEM, THE HOSTAGES ARE HOME FROM NORTH KOREA AT A WHOLE BUNCH OF OTHER THINGS. THAT’S WHERE THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO BE AND HE’S GOING TO KEEP DOING THE THINGS HE TOLD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HE WAS GOING TO DO WHEN HE THEY ELECTED HIM A DO WHEN HE THEY ELECTED HIM D THAT INCLUDES DEALING WITH THE BORDER, THAT INCLUDES BUILDING THE BORDER SECURITY WALL, FIXING OUR SALAMAT AND DEALING WITH THIS CRISIS THAT FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS AND WEEKS THE DEMOCRATS THAT WAS MANUFACTURED, IT WAS FAKE, IT WASN’T REAL. THEN IT GETS SO BAD, WAIT A MINUTE, IT IS REAL, AND IT IS YOUR FAULT, MR. PRESIDENT EVEN THOUGH WE’VE DONE NOTHING TO HELP YOU DEAL WITH IT. IF THAT’S WHAT’S GOING ON HERE AND THAT’S WITH THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO CAMPAIGN ON.>>Martha: I WANT TO ASK YOU ONE QUESTION ABOUT ROBERT MUELLER’S TESTIMONY, WHICH HAS NOW BEEN MOVED TO NEXT WEEK. IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT WEEK, IS THAT YOUR UNDERSTANDING?>>I THINK SO. BUT I MAY COME ABOUT, JERRY NADLER TOLD ME THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO A HALF MONTHS AGO. SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK. WE WILL SEE. WE ARE WORKING ON WHAT WE ARE GOING TO ASK THEM. WE LOOK FORWARD TO IT AND WE’LL SEE HOW IT GOES.>>Martha: LET ME PLAY SOMETHING FROM DEVIN NUNES LAST NIGHT ON SEAN HANNITY, WATCH THIS.>>I FEAR WHAT’S GOING ON RIGHT NOW IS THAT MUELLER IS WORKING WITH A LOT OF HIS STAFF WHO ARE BACK CHANNELING TO THE DEMOCRATS, SO IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT MUELLER IS GOING TO HAVE A FEW LITTLE SOUND BITES THAT ARE GOING TO GIVE THE DEMOCRATS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT.>>Martha: HE SUGGESTING THAT ROBERT MUELLER HAS BEEN FED SPECIFIC THINGS TO SAY THAT WILL ALLOW DEMOCRATS TO SINK THEIR TEETH INTO SOME OF THESE PHRASES FOR IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS OR IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION.>>WE WILL SEE. I GUESS IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME IF THAT’S GOING ON, BUT I DON’T KNOW. WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. THERE’S THE ONE THING I DO KNOW THOUGH. THE INVESTIGATION, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES HAS ASKED JOHN DURHAM TO DO, WHICH IS TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ORIGINS OF THIS ENTIRE THING, THE SPYING THAT TOOK PLACE AND EVERYTHING ELSE, THAT THE INVESTIGATION THAT COUNTS, LIKE THE ONE I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO. WHEN WE GET THE RESULTS OF
