Conway: House impeachment inquiry vote doesn’t make a difference


>>Chris: DAVID SPUNT REPORTING FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, THANK YOU. JOINING US NOW, COUNSELOR TO THE PRESIDENT KELLYANNE CONWAY, WELCOME BACK TO “FOX NEWS SUNDAY.”>>Kellyanne: THANK YOU, CHRIS CHRIS.>>Chris: NOW THAT THE FULL HOUSE THIS WEEK HAS VOTED TO APPROVE AND CONTINUE THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, WILL PRESIDENT TRUMP STOP BLOCKING CURRENT AND FORMER ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS FROM TESTIFYING?>>Kellyanne: A LITTLE FACT-CHECKER, THE FULL HOUSE DID NOT VOTE TO AUTHORIZE AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, JUST THE DEMOCRATS DID.>>Chris: IT WAS A VOTE OF THE FULL HOUSE AND A MAJORITY VOTE OF THAT.>>Kellyanne: BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE BUT THIS IS NOT AS NANCY PELOSI PLEDGED AND PROMISED IT WOULD BE. IT WAS OVERWHELMINGLY BIPARTISAN MOVE TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT THAT IS SUPPORTED BY THE PUBLIC. IN FACT, TWO DEMOCRATS VOTED WITH THE REPUBLICANS. IF IT WAS POLITICAL LINES BECAUSE THE PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE SEE IT AS A POLITICAL EXERCISE.>>Chris: PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION. WILL THE PRESIDENT STOP BLOCKING OFFICIALS FROM TESTIFYING BEFORE THE HOUSE?>>Kellyanne: YOU’VE SEEN A NUMBER OF OFFICIALS TESTIFYING.>>Chris: THAT’S OVER THE OBJECTION OF THE PRESIDENT.>>Kellyanne: OF THE PRESIDENT HAVE ASBURY MAKE EVERY RIGHT TOX HAVE ASBURY MAKE EVERY RIGHT TOC HAVE ASBURY MAKE EVERY RIGHT TOU HAVE ASBURY MAKE EVERY RIGHT TOI HAVE ASBURY MAKE EVERY RIGHT TOE PRIVILEGE. BUT WE SEEM DIFFERENT PEOPLE GOING UP THERE TESTIFYING. WHAT WE HAVEN’T SEEN IS THE FULLNESS OF THE EIGHT OR TEN HOURS EACH OF THEM HAS SPENT BECAUSE I THINK — I GUESS ADAM SCHIFF IS GROWING MUSHROOMS IN THE DARK IN A SECRET PROCESS, WHICH IS UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE YOU CANNOT PUT THAT TOOTHPASTE BACK IN THE TUBE NOW. YOU CANNOT CURE WHAT HAS BEEN A FLAWED PROCESS FROM THE BEGINNING WHERE THE PRESIDENT HAS NOT BEEN AFFORDED DUE PROCESS RIGHTS.>>Chris: I PROMISE I’M GOING TO GET TO THAT. I PROMISE I’M GOING TO GET TO THAT.>>Kellyanne: THE 10 MINUTES HE WANTS YOU TO KNOW FROM TEN HOURS OF TESTIMONY.>>Chris: I PROMISE I’M GOING TO GET TO THAT I’M GOING TO SPECIFICALLY ASK CONGRESSMAN JIM HIMES.>>Kellyanne: SHOULD PROBABLY BE SEEING OVER THE WHOLE PROCESS BECAUSE SCHIFF HAS NO CURRENT ABILITY.>>Chris: WILL THE PRESIDENT TELL JOHN BOLTON, WHO WAS SCHEDULED TO TESTIFY THIS WEEK, NOT TO APPEAR?>>Kellyanne: AMBASSADOR BOLTON PUBLICLY AND HIS LAWYER SAID HE’S NOT SURE HE WILL APPEAR. THAT IS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PRESIDENT –>>Chris: BUT I’M ASKING –>>Kellyanne: ON MUCH OF THE PRESIDENT HAS TALKED TO AMBASSADOR BOLTON, BUT WE AS A WHITE HOUSE WILL CONTINUE TO EXERT EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. WHERE WE FEEL THAT IT IS NECESSARY.>>Chris: SO THE HOUSEBOAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?>>Kellyanne: THE HOUSEBOAT DOESN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF A FLAWED PROCESS SOMEHOW BECOMING OPEN AND TRANSPARENT AND THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS FROM THE BEGINNING. SIX WEEKS AGO, TUESDAY, NANCY PELOSI SAID WE ARE GOING TO MOVE TOWARDS AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. IT TOOK THEM FIVE WEEKS TO HOLD A VOTE. WHERE IS THE SUBSTANCE? LET’S TELL AMERICA, ON WHAT CASES ARE WE IMPEACHING A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHERE WE ARE — ARE CENTRAL GOVERNING PRINCIPLE IN THE COUNTRY AS THE RULE OF LAW MIKE ON A PHONE CALL? HERE’S THE TRANSCRIPT, GO READ IT, EVERYBODY.>>Chris: IT ISN’T JUST A PHONE CALL AND WE WILL GET TO THE MERITS IN A MINUTE BUT YOU BROUGHT UP THE CLOSED DOOR, SO LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THAT. THE PRESIDENT COMPLAINS ABOUT THE HOUSE CONDUCTING THE INVESTIGATION BEHIND CLOSED DOORS SO FAR, BUT WHEN THE HOUSE HAD — WHEN THE REPUBLICANS HAD CONTROL OF THE HOUSE IN 2017 AND ’18, THEY CONDUCTED THE INVESTIGATION ABOUT RUSSIA AND THE INTERFERENCE IN 2016 BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. WHEN REPUBLICANS DID THE BENGHAZI INVESTIGATION, THEY CONDUCTED IT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND HERE’S WHAT THE CHAIRMAN OF THAT INQUIRY SET ABOUT THIS. TAKE A LOOK.>>PEOPLE ACT DIFFERENTLY WHEN THERE AREN’T CAMERAS IN THE ROOM. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THAT, THEY ARE VERY CONSTRUCTIVE INTERVIEWS WHEN THERE IS NO CAMERA.>>Chris: SO WHY IS IT OKAY FOR REPUBLICANS, WHEN THEY ARE IN CHARGE, TO CONDUCT HEARINGS, DEPOSITIONS, INTERVIEWS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS I’M ABOUT IS ON ACCEPTABLE FOR DEMOCRATS?>>Kellyanne: RESPECTFULLY, CHRIS, THIS IS ABOUT IMPEACHING A PRESIDENT OF UNIT STATES –>>Chris: BENGHAZI WAS ABOUT FOUR AMERICANS WHO DIED.>>Kellyanne: BECAUSE OF THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE WOMAN WHO GOT TO –>>Chris: WHEN YOU SAY THAT’S PRETTY IMPORTANT TOO? WOULDN’T YOU SAY THAT’S PRETTY IMPORTANT? WOULDN’T YOU SAY BENGHAZI WAS PRETTY IMPORTANT?>>Kellyanne: I WOULD SAY BENGHAZI WAS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND I WILL ALWAYS BE VERY SAD –>>Chris: BUT IT WAS CONDUCTED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IS MY POINT, SO WHY IS IT OKAY FOR REPUBLICANS TO DO IT BUT NOT DEMOCRATS?>>Kellyanne: OF THE PRESIDENT HAS HAD NO DUE PROCESS RIGHT AFFORDED TO HIM AND HIS THOUGHT PROCESS AND I’M TOLD BY OUR LAWYERS INTERNALLY — I’M A FULLY RECOVERED LAWYER BUT THOSE WHO STILL PRACTICE IN THE WHITE HOUSE TELL ME THAT THERE WILL BE THREE ROUNDS. THE THIRD ROUND UNTIL THE PRESIDENT OF AUSTIN IS LAWYERS CAN ACTUALLY CROSS-EXAMINE OUR PRESENT EVIDENCE OR CHALLENGE EVIDENCE. THIS IS NOT THE WAY THAT OUR RULE OF LAW, OUR SYSTEM OF JUSTICE, SHOULD WORK FOR THE PRESIDENT OR ANYONE ELSE AND RESPECTFULLY I THINK THERE IS NO ANALOGY BE THE ULTIMATE RESULT HERE, OR THE ULTIMATE GOAL HERE, WHICH IS TO IMPEACH A PRESIDENT AND REMOVE HIM FROM OFFICE AS ANY OTHER TYPE OF CONGRESSIONAL HEARING. AS AN EXTRA ORDINARY EVENT THAT SHOULD BE UNDERTAKEN IN THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY PRUDENT CIRCUMSTANCES AND WE ARE NOWHERE NEAR THAT. AND THEY THOUGHT — NANCY PELOSI THOUGHT BASED ON CABLE NEWS CRANKS AND TWITTER TROUBLES THAT THERE WILL BE EIGHT QUID PRO QUO’S IN THIS CALL. THE TRANSCRIPT BEFORE SHE CAME OUT AND SAID THAT –>>Chris: IT LET’S GET INTO THE MERITS.>>Kellyanne: SHE SHOULD HAVE WAITED A DAY, –>>Chris: LET’S GET INTO THE MERITS. THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WANTS REPUBLICANS TO FOCUS ON THE SUBSTANCE OF THE CASE. HERE HE HAS.>>I’D RATHER GO INTO THE DETAILS OF THE CASE RATHER THAN PROCESS. PROCESS IS WONDERFUL BUT I THINK YOU OUGHT TO LOOK AT THE CASE. THE CASE IS VERY SIMPLE, IT’S QUICK.>>Chris: SO LET’S LOOK AT THE CASE, BECAUSE OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS, FIONA HILL AND WILLIAM TAYLOR AND LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALEXANDER VINDMAN, ALL OF THEM TOP FOREIGN POLICY OFFICIALS OFFICIALS FOR THIS PRESIDENT, HAVE ALL TESTIFIED ABOUT REPEATED INSTANCES WHERE THEY SAW THAT SUPPORT FOR UKRAINE WAS DEPENDENT ON UKRAINE INVESTIGATING THE BIDENS. ISN’T THAT THE DEFINITION OF A QUID PRO QUO?>>Kellyanne: THE FACT IS UKRAINE HAS THAT AID, THEY ARE USING THAT EIGHT AS WE SIT HERE. UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA THEY’VE GOT PILLOWS AND BLANKETS — WOULD GIVE THEM AID. THAT’S IMPORTANT.>>Chris: THAT THE AIDE WAS WITHHELD UNTIL –>>Kellyanne: UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT SAYS HE HAS NO IDEA THERE IT WAS WITHHELD AND HE FELT THE PRESSURE. WHY DOES IT MATTER WHAT THE TWO PRESIDENTS WHO WERE INVOLVED IN A PHONE CALL AND THEN IN THE ENTIRE TRANSACTION AND INDEED THE BILATERAL RELATIONS BETWEEN INTONATIONS –>>Chris: DOESN’T IT MATTER THAT THE TOP U.S. DIPLOMAT IN UKRAINE, CURRENTLY THE ACTING AMBASSADOR, WILLIAM TAYLOR, SAID THAT THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO? DOESN’T MATTER? IT’S A MATTER THAT LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN, WHO WAS ACTUALLY ON THE CALL WAS SO UPSET ABOUT IT AFTERWARDS HE WENT TO SEE THE LAWYER.>>Kellyanne: AND BY THE WAY I WILL NEVER QUESTION HIS PATRIOTISM. I DO QUESTION HIS INTERPRETATION AND WHY IT WOULD BE RELEVANT IN THIS CASE BECAUSE IT WAS REJECTED AND IN FACT “THE WASHINGTON POST” AND “THE NEW YORK TIMES” THIS WEEK, CHRIS, SAID THAT WHAT LIEUTENANT COLONEL VINDMAN SUGGESTED BE ADDED OR CORRECTED IN THE TRANSCRIPT WOULD NOT HAVE “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED WHAT THE LAWMAKERS BELIEVE OF THAT CALL.” IT DID NOT AFFECT THE… CENTER THERE. WE CANNOT IMPEACH A PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES BASED ON AN INTERPRETATION OF ANY STAFFER, VINDMAN, ME, ANYONE ELSE. WE IMPEACH PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES IN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE SUCH AN EXTRAORDINARY MOMENT THAT 67 UNITED STATES SENATORS SAY THAT PRESIDENT WHO HAS BEEN DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED AND LIKELY WILL BE AGAIN –>>Chris: IT LET ME ASK YOU THIS QUESTION. FOR THE SAKE OF THE ARGUMENT LET’S SAY — IT WASN’T JUST A PHONE CALL. THERE WAS A LONG CAMPAIGN BY RUDY GIULIANI AND SOME OTHERS LIKE GORDON SONDLAND, KURT VOLKER, BEFORE THE CALL AND A LONG CAMPAIGN BY THOSE SAME PEOPLE AFTER THE CALL. THIS WENT ON FROM THE SPRING OF 2019 UP UNTIL SEPTEMBER OF 2019. LET’S JUST SAY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DID CONDITION GIVING THE MILITARY AID — WITHHELD IT AND SAID IT WILL BE GIVEN OUT ONLY IF YOU INVESTIGATE JOE BIDEN. IS THAT — IS THAT AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE?>>Kellyanne: IS AT A HIGH CRIME AND MISDEMEANOR? I WOULDN’T THINK SO. BUT YOU’RE GIVING A HYPOTHETICAL. IN OTHER WORDS –>>Chris: NO, I’M JUST SAYING I THINK IT’S A CLARIFYING QUESTION. IF ALL OF IT IS TRUE ARE YOU SAYING IT’S IMPEACHABLE OR NOT?>>Kellyanne: LET’S HAVE THESE HEARINGS. WE ARE GOING TO REMOVE A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BASED ON THE FACT THAT A COUPLE OF NEWS OUTLETS INSISTED — INSISTED, THEY STILL HAVE THEIR JOBS UNFORTUNATELY, INSISTED THERE WERE EIGHT QUID PRO QUO’S INHERENT THAT HE ASKED TO INVESTIGATE BIDEN AND HIS POLITICAL RIVAL. MAYBE YOU CAN CIRCLE IT FOR ME. ABOUT 2020, ABOUT BIDEN AND HIS POLITICAL RIVALS, ABOUT HOLDING UP AID, QUID PRO QUO QUID PRO QUO. ZELENSKY IS TALKING MOST OF THE TIME ABOUT HOW HE TOOK — HE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM DONALD TRUMP, DRAIN THE SWAMP, HE’S COMPLAINING ABOUT MERKEL AND PRESIDENT MACRON, NOT DONALD TRUMP IN THE U.S. IN TERMS OF HELPING OUT UKRAINE. HE KNOWS HE’S GETTING MORE A –>>Chris: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BOTTOM LINE. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT OTHER WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS SAY, THE AIDE WAS GIVEN ANYWAY.>>Kellyanne: THAT’S IMPORTANT, THEY ARE USING IT RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK.>>Chris: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE TIMELINE FOR GETTING THE AIDE. THE AIDE WAS HELD UP ALL SUMMER AND IT WAS FINALLY RELEASED ON SEPTEMBER 11TH A MONTH AND A HALF AGO. HERE’S THE TIMING. TWO DAYS BEFORE THE INSPECTOR GENERAL INFORMED THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE ABOUT THE WHISTLE-BLOWER COMPLAINT. KELLY AND, THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T RELEASE THE AIDE UNTIL THE STORY WAS OUT.>>Kellyanne: YOU’RE TRYING TO MAKE THAT CAUSATION –>>Chris: I FIND IT AN AWFULLY INTERESTING COINCIDENCE.>>Kellyanne: THEY’VE GOT THEIR EIGHT AND THAT’S WHAT’S IMPORTANT –>>Chris: NO, NO, NO. HOW THE AIDE CAME OUT, IT WAS HELD UP ALL SUMMER UNTIL THE 11TH OF SEPTEMBER AND THE ONLY REASON IT CAME OUT –>>Kellyanne: DON’T GO THERE.>>Chris: IT HAD ALREADY –>>Kellyanne: YOU HAVE NO IDEA THAT’S WHY IT WAS HELD UP.>>Chris: IT’S SEEMS LIKE AWFUL COINCIDENCE THAT THE AIDE IS RELEASED ON THE 11TH. YOU’RE SUGGESTING IT’S NOT A COINCIDENCE?>>Kellyanne: I’M SUGGESTING YOU DON’T KNOW THAT WHAT YOU WERE JUST ABOUT TO SAY TO BE TRUTH, THAT THE ONLY REASON IT CAME OUT WAS BECAUSE TWO DAYS BEFORE –>>Chris: DO YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE? DO YOU KNOW IT’S NOT TRUE?>>Kellyanne: ADAM SCHIFF WAS COLLUDING WITH THE WHISTLE-BLOWER APPARENTLY?>>Chris: ONE FINAL QUESTION, “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORTS THAT A GROWING NUMBER OF REPUBLICAN SENATORS ARE CONCERNED WITH THE EVIDENCE THAT’S COME OUT AND ARE SUGGESTING PERHAPS THEY WILL SAY THAT YES, THE MILITARY AID WAS DEPENDENT ON UKRAINE INVESTIGATING THE BIDENS, THAT IT WAS A QUID PRO QUO BUT THAT IT IS NOT AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE. WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP EXCEPT THAT AS A WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS CONTROVERSY?>>Kellyanne: IF YOU ACT LIKE SOMEBODY IS GIVING A PLEA BARGAIN FOR A LESSER OFFENSE. WHAT CRIME IS HE BEING ACCUSED? AND WHEN WILL YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO FACE THE JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER? CHRIS, WHAT THOSE REPUBLICAN SENATORS SAYING, THEY ARE BROADCASTING TO YOU AND THE REST OF THE WORLD, I’M NOT GOING TO BE ONE OF THE 20 REPUBLICANS WHO GOES WITH THE DEMOCRATS AND REMOVES A DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES JUST BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET HIM OUT OF THE DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM.>>Chris: CONCERNED THAT THE EVIDENCE DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR THE PRESENT.>>Kellyanne: I THINK THE REASON YOU SAW EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTE AGAINST THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS THEY HAVE NOT SEEN EVIDENCE OF A HIGH CRIME OR MISDEMEANOR, SO MUCH THAT THEY COULDN’T EVEN VOTE TO HAVE THE INQUIRY GO FORWARD BECAUSE THE INQUIRY HAS BEEN SO FLAWED. BY THE WAY, THE FRUSTRATION IN THE SENATE WAS ALSO ARTICULATED BY NONE OTHER THAN DEMOCRATIC SENATOR CHRIS COONS ON FOX NEWS TWO SHORT DAYS AGO, I WATCHED IT ON YOUR NETWORK. HE SAYS THERE’S CONCERN IN THE SENATE THAT THEY ARE NOT TAKING UP CERTAIN PIECES OF LEGISLATION, BUT THEY ARE NOT DOING THE PEOPLE’S BUSINESS. THIS IS A MAN WHO HAS JOE BIDEN’S FORMER SENATE SEAT, WHO HAS ENDORSED HIM FOR PRESIDENT. WHY CAN’T THEY VOTE ON USMCA, DRUG PRICING, HEALTH CARE, INFRASTRUCTURE?>>Chris: WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS DURING THE COMMERCIAL AND I PROMISE YOU — IF YOU WANT TO STICK AROUND AND WATCH I WILL BE ASKING A LOT ARE VERY GOOD QUESTIONS TO CONGRESSMAN JIM

  1. A TRUE LEADER HAS THE CONFIDENCE TO STAND ALONE
    THE COURAGE TO MAKE TOUGH DECISIONS
    THE COMPASSION TO LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
    HE DOES NOT SET OUT TO BE A LEADER
    BUT BECOMES ONE BY THE EQUALITY OF HIS ACTIONS
    AND THE INTEGRITY OF HIS INTENT.
    THIS IS AMERICA'S CHOSEN PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP !

  2. No the president won’t quit blocking. He shouldn’t have the right to exert this privilege. He is under trial. He should have no say so until trial is over

  3. Chris Wallace is definitely comprised. He wont ask Adam Schiff about Ed Buck, or Kamala Harris about willie brown, or any Democrat for that matter about spygate, illegal surveillance on us citizens. Chris Wallace is a controlled propagandist

  4. "You don't even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role. Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office." -Lindsey Graham

  5. Chris Wallace…quit being a tool of the left and grow a spine and seek the truth not be the errand boy for the left's Schiff detail on fox.

  6. Chris Wallace is just as arrogant as his father was worthless piece of s*** and he needs to be taken off of the air

  7. Can someone send me the link of president trump being boooooooodd. Poor guy he should just stay at his rallies where ppl maybe like him 🤷‍♀️

  8. Chris Wallace sure sounds like a shill for the Democrats. I don’t see any democrats having to answer these same questions.

  9. Chriss Wallace is insufferable. Let Kellyanne finish what she's saying ffs!
    Why is he even an employee at a news station, when he's incapable of conducting an interview?

    I can't finish watching this, it's so awful that I'd rather rake leaves.

  10. Why is Chris Wallace still on Fox he's nothing but a two face buffoon seriously take him and juan off of Fox and let their clueless asses go to cnn or some other corrupt news media network or does Fox needs unintelligent jackasses like them to balance out the network.
