  • FOR THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND
  • 00:00:29.140 --> 00:00:31.020

  • JAY SEKULOW: HEY, EVERYBODY! WELCOME TO THE
  • 00:00:34.050 --> 00:00:34.280
  • BROADCAST. WE'VE GOT BIG NEWS, I
  • 00:00:34.290 --> 00:00:36.260
  • MEAN, REALLY SIGNIFICANT. OF COURSE, THERE'S NEWS ON TOP OF
  • 00:00:36.270 --> 00:00:39.100
  • NEWS. THERE HAS BEEN A MAJOR VICTORY IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:43.020
  • DISTRICT COURT IN CALIFORNIA ON WHAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE CHALLENGE
  • 00:00:43.030 --> 00:00:48.120
  • AIMED AT KEEPING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OFF THE
  • 00:00:48.130 --> 00:00:51.110
  • BALLOT. AND THIS WAS THIS REQUIREMENT THAT THE STATE OF
  • 00:00:51.120 --> 00:00:54.130
  • CALIFORNIA PASSED THAT, IN ESSENCE, AND THIS IS WHAT'S SO
  • 00:00:54.140 --> 00:00:58.050
  • CRITICAL HERE, THAT, IN ESSENCE, UNDERSTAND THIS, PUT AN
  • 00:00:58.060 --> 00:01:02.210
  • ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION'S, WHAT THEY CALL,
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:06.240
  • PRESIDENTIAL QUALIFICATION CLAUSE INTO LAW. BUT THIS
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:11.250
  • REQUIREMENT THAT TAX RETURNS BE ADDED. THIS IS WHAT THEY TRIED
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:14.080
  • TO DO HERE. NOW I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS. IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:17.090
  • DISCLOSE YOUR TAX RETURNS, WE'RE NOT ALLOWING YOU ON THE BALLOT.
  • 00:01:17.100 --> 00:01:20.040
  • THAT VIOLATED FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, FREEDOM OF SPEECH,
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:22.270
  • IT VIOLATED THE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAUSE. IT VIOLATED THE
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:27.260
  • PRESIDENTIAL QUALIFICATION CLAUSE. A U.S. DISTRICT COURT
  • 00:01:27.270 --> 00:01:31.000
  • LAST NIGHT, AND THEY INDICATED, THE JUDGE INDICATED THIS LAST
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:33.060
  • WEEK THAT IT WOULD BE COMING, BUT UNTIL YOU SEE THE ORDER YOU
  • 00:01:33.070 --> 00:01:35.210
  • NEVER KNOW. WE GOT THE WRITTEN OPINION. IT IS A SIGNIFICANT,
  • 00:01:35.220 --> 00:01:39.070
  • SIGNIFICANT CONSTITUTIONAL VICTORY. YOU'RE GONNA GET A
  • 00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:42.040
  • LESSON IN THE CONSTITUTION ON TODAY'S BROADCAST, BECAUSE WE'RE
  • 00:01:42.050 --> 00:01:45.090
  • GONNA GET INTO THIS IN GREAT DETAIL. BUT LET ME FIRST SAY
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:48.250
  • THIS, AGAIN, WHAT WAS AT STAKE? IT WAS AN ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:52.210
  • LAWS, TO CHANGE THE RULES, BY THE LEFT TO ADD QUALIFICATIONS
  • 00:01:52.220 --> 00:01:58.000
  • TO RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT THAT ARE NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:01:58.010 --> 00:02:01.110
  • ITSELF. SO, THAT, UNDERSTAND WHAT'S AT PLAY WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:02:01.120 --> 00:02:06.100
  • THAT'S NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION ITSELF. YET, THEY WERE TRYING TO
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:10.020
  • CHANGE THE LAWS AND MODIFY THE RULES FOR QUALIFICATION TO BE ON
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:14.050
  • A BALLOT. YOU KNOW WHAT IMPACT THAT WOULD HAVE IN THE UNITED
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:16.020
  • STATES? IT WOULD BE REALLY, FRANKLY, UNPRECEDENTED. HARRY,
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:20.290
  • HOW BIG OF A WIN HERE? BY THE WAY, I WILL SAY I THINK THAT IF
  • 00:02:21.000 --> 00:02:24.150
  • THIS IS APPEALED, AND I SUSPECT IT WILL BE, WE WILL WIN AT THE
  • 00:02:24.160 --> 00:02:26.270
  • NINTH CIRCUIT. IF IT ENDED UP AT THE SUPREME COURT, WE WILL WIN
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:29.160
  • AT THE SUPREME COURT. HARRY? HARRY HUTCHISON: THIS IS A
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:31.270
  • TREMENDOUS VICTORY BECAUSE THE STATUTE AT ISSUE, THE CALIFORNIA
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:35.230
  • STATUTE WAS TRANSPARENTLY ILLEGAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
  • 00:02:35.240 --> 00:02:41.070
  • AND IT WAS REALLY AIMED AT ONLY ONE PERSON. CALIFORNIA CLAIMED
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:46.190
  • THAT THE RELEASE OF ONE'S TAX RETURNS WAS, INDEED, CUSTOMARY.
  • 00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:51.170
  • THE JUDGE LOOKED AT THE FACTS AND SINCE 1913 UP UNTIL 1973 NO
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:03:00.050
  • SITTING PRESIDENT HAD RELEASED HIS TAXES TO THE PUBLIC. SO, I
  • 00:03:00.060 --> 00:03:07.200
  • THINK IT IS CLEAR, BEYOND QUESTION, THAT CALIFORNIA WAS
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:11.060
  • ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE THE RULES IN MIDSTREAM, AND THEY WERE
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:16.170
  • ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE THE RULES IN VIOLATION OF THE
  • 00:03:16.180 --> 00:03:21.050
  • CONSTITUTION. SO, THE JUDGE, QUITE CORRECTLY, ISSUED A
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:25.220
  • PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION ENJOINING THE ENFORCEMENT OF THIS
  • 00:03:25.230 --> 00:03:29.260
  • PARTICULAR STATUTE. OF COURSE, THERE WILL BE APPEALS LATER.
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:34.240
  • -YEAH, THEY SAY THEY MAY EVEN DO THOSE APPEALS ON AN EXPEDITED
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:36.230
  • BASIS. BUT, LET ME TELL YOU WHAT'S AT PLAY HERE, AND THIS
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:39.130
  • GOES TO OTHER ISSUES WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT TODAY, ADAM SCHIFF
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:42.080
  • JUST NOW STATED THAT IF THE WHITE HOUSE DOESN'T COMPLY WITH
  • 00:03:42.090 --> 00:03:45.180
  • THE SUBPOENAS THAT THEY'VE ISSUED, AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS
  • 00:03:45.190 --> 00:03:47.220
  • DON'T COMPLY, STATE DEPARTMENT AND OTHERS, THAT THAT'S
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:50.160
  • OBSTRUCTION AND IS A BASIS, COULD BE IN A BASIS, FOR AN
  • 00:03:50.170 --> 00:03:52.250
  • IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDING. YOU KNOW WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:03:52.260 --> 00:03:55.080
  • SINCE WHEN IS FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES, BECAUSE
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:58.050
  • THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT ISSUES CONSTITUTIONALLY RAISED BY THIS,
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:02.080
  • WHEN IS FOLLOWING CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATIONS A BASIS FOR
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:06.070
  • OBSTRUCTION? IT'S ABSURD! IT'S WEAPONIZING THE CONSTITUTION! WE
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:11.070
  • DON'T ALLOW THAT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE'RE TAKING
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:13.200
  • A BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL TAKE YOUR CALLS. I JUST
  • 00:04:13.210 --> 00:04:15.260
  • MADE A STATEMENT THAT ARGUING, THAT FOLLOWING THE
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:18.160
  • CONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES IS OBSTRUCTION IS ABSURD. READ
  • 00:04:18.170 --> 00:04:21.010
  • ARTICLE 2. THAT'S WHAT THEY NEED TO BE DOING. BACK WITH MORE IN
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.220
  • JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:25.020
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:32.060
  • JAY SEKULOW: IF YOU'RE JUST JOINING US, WE HAVE AN
  • 00:04:32.070 --> 00:04:33.180
  • OPINION ENTERED YESTERDAY. THE
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:35.230
  • U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE MARCIN ENGLAND, THE CASE IS GRIFFIN
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:38.060
  • VERSUS PADILLA. WHAT IT REALLY IS, IS ALSO THE CASE OF DONALD
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:40.270
  • J. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT AND DONALD J. TRUMP AND HIS CAPACITY
  • 00:04:40.280 --> 00:04:43.230
  • AS PRIVATE CITIZEN VERSUS PADILLA. THE CASE INVOLVES A
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:47.250
  • CHALLENGE TO A LAW PUT IN PLACE IN CALIFORNIA, I WANT YOU TO
  • 00:04:47.260 --> 00:04:51.000
  • HEAR WHAT THIS IS, THAT ADDED A REQUIREMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:56.010
  • TO ARTICLE 2 SECTION 1 CLAUSE 5, WHICH IS THE QUALIFICATION
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:05:00.120
  • CLAUSE. IT SAYS THIS-NO PERSON, EXCEPT A NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN OR
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:04.150
  • A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:07.110
  • THIS CONSTITUTION, SHALL BE ELIGIBLE TO THE OFFICE OF
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:10.250
  • PRESIDENT, NEITHER SHALL ANY PERSON BE ELIGIBLE TO THAT
  • 00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:13.130
  • OFFICE WHO SHALL NOT HAVE ATTAINED THE AGE OF 35 YEARS AND
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:16.080
  • BEEN 14 YEARS A RESIDENT WITHIN THE UNITED STATES. THERE IT IS.
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:21.250
  • CLEAR AS CAN BE. THOSE ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR PRESIDENT, TO
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:26.010
  • RUN FOR PRESIDENT. HOW CLEAR COULD IT BE? YET, CALIFORNIA
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:32.200
  • SAYS, WELL, NO, TO APPEAR ON THE BALLOT, THOUGH, WE WANT TO ADD A
  • 00:05:32.210 --> 00:05:35.230
  • LITTLE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENT. YOU'VE GOT TO RELEASE YOUR TAX
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:37.280
  • RETURNS, WHICH, BY THE WAY, THINK ABOUT THIS, THERE WEREN'T
  • 00:05:37.290 --> 00:05:40.010
  • EVEN FEDERAL INCOME TAXES AT THE TIME OF THE ADOPTION OF THE
  • 00:05:40.020 --> 00:05:41.230
  • CONSTITUTION. I MEAN, HOW ABOUT THAT? I MEAN, AT THE LEVEL OF
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:44.150
  • WHAT WE. THIS IS, THIS IS, THIS IS, THIS IS, ALL OF THIS IS
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:47.140
  • ABSURD! THEY'RE MAKING UP RULES AT THE END OF THE GAME HERE,
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:51.110
  • HARRY. HARRY HUTCHISON: ABSOLUTELY! AND AS THE JUDGE
  • 00:05:51.120 --> 00:05:53.140
  • CORRECTLY POINTS OUT, IF CALIFORNIA GETS ITS WAY, WHAT
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:59.030
  • PREVENTS ANOTHER STATE FROM DEMANDING THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH
  • 00:05:59.040 --> 00:06:03.250
  • RECORDS OR HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE OR HIS HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA OR
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:10.210
  • HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPT AS A PREDICATE FOR RUNNING FOR
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:14.170
  • OFFICE? THE CONSTITUTION IS QUITE CLEAR, QUITE SIMPLE, QUITE
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:19.140
  • STRAIGHTFORWARD, AND PRESIDENT TRUMP MEETS THE CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:24.070
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:06:24.080 --> 00:06:28.010
  • EVERYONE KNOWS THE PRESIDENT IS OVER THE AGE OF 35. HE IS,
  • 00:06:28.020 --> 00:06:33.130
  • INDEED, A NATURAL-BORN CITIZEN. AND IT IS CLEAR AS DAY THAT HE
  • 00:06:33.140 --> 00:06:39.100
  • CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT CONSTITUTIONALLY. AND SO, WHAT
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:43.170
  • WE HAVE HERE IS A TRANSPARENT ATTEMPT BY THE LEFT, TO REWRITE
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:50.030
  • THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. WHY? BECAUSE THEY DISLIKE THIS
  • 00:06:50.040 --> 00:06:56.050
  • PARTICULAR PRESIDENT AND THEY SUFFER FROM WHAT MIGHT BE CALLED
  • 00:06:56.060 --> 00:06:59.140
  • THE TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. -LET ME GIVE YOU A QUOTE FROM
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:02.120
  • THE JUDGE IT IS NOT THE JOB OF THE COURTS, HOWEVER, TO DECIDE
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:05.060
  • WHETHER A TAX RETURN DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT IS GOOD POLICY OR
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:07.140
  • MAKES POLITICAL SENSE. THOSE ARE QUESTIONS DELEGATED TO THE
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:10.040
  • POLITICAL BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (THAT IS
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:12.090
  • CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE IF THERE WAS A LAW
  • 00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:15.010
  • PASSED THE PRESIDENT COULD SIGN IT OR VETO IT) UNDER ARTICLES
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:18.040
  • ONE AND ARTICLE TWO OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION.
  • 00:07:18.050 --> 00:07:20.060
  • THOSE ARE THE BRANCHES THAT MAKE THE LAW. COURTS CREATED UNDER
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:23.100
  • ARTICLE THREE (THAT'S A LESSON FOR ADAM SCHIFF, BY THE WAY, AND
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:26.110
  • NANCY PELOSI, AND JERRY NADLER, THEY NEED TO BE LISTENING TO
  • 00:07:26.120 --> 00:07:29.140
  • THIS AS WELL) COURTS CREATED UNDER ARTICLE 3 OF THE UNITED
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:32.280
  • STATES CONSTITUTION ARE NOT CONCERNED WITH POLITICAL
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:35.010
  • VICTORIES OR WHO MAY OR MAY NOT WIN. INSTEAD IT IS THE COURT'S
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:38.200
  • JOB TO MAKE SURE THE CONSTITUTION WINS.' THE VICTORY
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:44.110
  • HERE LAST NIGHT WAS FOR ALL OF US IN OUR CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:07:44.120 --> 00:07:48.250
  • REPUBLIC. IT WAS A VICTORY, IT IS A VICTORY FOR THE
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:52.240
  • CONSTITUTION! THAT IS WHAT IS AT PLAY HERE. BUT I WILL TELL YOU
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:57.020
  • THIS, I'M GOING TO THANN BENNETT, OUR DIRECTOR OF
  • 00:07:57.030 --> 00:07:58.240
  • GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS, I'M WATCHING THESE PRESS CONFERENCES
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.000
  • AS THIS NEWS IS ALL BREAKING, AND THEY'RE SAYING, ADAM SCHIFF
  • 00:08:01.010 --> 00:08:03.270
  • JUST SAID, WE SHOULD GET THIS BITE, THAT THE WHITE HOUSE NOT
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:07.050
  • RESPONDING TO THEIR SUBPOENAS IS OBSTRUCTION. AND THAT COULD BE
  • 00:08:07.060 --> 00:08:10.000
  • AN ACCOUNT FOR IMPEACHMENT. NOW, I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT THAT
  • 00:08:10.010 --> 00:08:14.050
  • FOR A MOMENT. THERE ARE SERIOUS CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES RAISED,
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:18.150
  • INCLUDING EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE AND OTHERS, RAISED BY THESE
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:22.250
  • SUBPOENAS. AND DO YOU NOT THINK THAT WE, AS THE PRESIDENT'S
  • 00:08:22.260 --> 00:08:26.030
  • COUNCIL, OR THE WHITE HOUSE HAS THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL TO THE
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:30.000
  • OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY, OR THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, HAVE A
  • 00:08:30.010 --> 00:08:32.170
  • LEGITIMATE INTEREST IN MAKING SURE THERE'S NOT A WAIVER OF
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:35.190
  • PRIVILEGE OR VIOLATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND
  • 00:08:35.200 --> 00:08:39.080
  • MANDATES? SO, THEY'RE WEAPONIZING THE CONSTITUTION. IF
  • 00:08:39.090 --> 00:08:42.210
  • YOU EXERCISE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE OF THE CONSTITUTION, THAT'S A
  • 00:08:42.220 --> 00:08:45.150
  • VIOLATION. THAT IS ABSURD! IT IS DANGEROUS TO THE REPUBLIC! BUT
  • 00:08:45.160 --> 00:08:50.110
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE? THANN, I'M GONNA GO TO YOU IN A
  • 00:08:50.120 --> 00:08:54.150
  • SECOND HERE, LET ME TAKE YOU THROUGH THIS IN A REALLY QUICK
  • 00:08:54.160 --> 00:08:56.200
  • TIMELINE. THERE IS A SO-CALLED WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT. RIGHT?
  • 00:08:56.210 --> 00:09:01.250
  • WHO HAS PRIMARILY NO FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE. YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:06.080
  • INFORMATION IN THE REPORT IS NOT FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE. YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:09:06.090 --> 00:09:08.170
  • THE WHOLE, YOU KNOW, HEARSAY THING. AND THEN THERE'S SOME
  • 00:09:08.180 --> 00:09:11.200
  • SUPPOSEDLY THAT IS, BUT IT APPEARS THIS INDIVIDUAL IS NOT
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:14.210
  • ON THE CALL, WHICH IS THE WHOLE ISSUE. SO, FIRST IT WAS QUID PRO
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:19.030
  • QUO. THEN WAIT A MINUTE, THERE'S NO QUID PRO QUO BECAUSE THE
  • 00:09:19.040 --> 00:09:23.100
  • TRANSCRIPT WAS RELEASED. SO, IT'S NOT, OH, THEN IT WAS THE
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:26.060
  • PRESIDENT'S PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE GOVERNMENT, BUT THERE'S NO
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:29.000
  • QUID PRO QUO. THEN IT'S THE COVER-UP. AND THEN I SAY TO
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:32.160
  • MYSELF, COVER-UP? WE RELEASED THE TRANSCRIPT. SO, WHAT EXACTLY
  • 00:09:32.170 --> 00:09:37.080
  • ARE YOU COVERING UP? OKAY, THEN IT GOES TO NOW WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:41.160
  • STONEWALLING. SO, THEY'RE ALREADY GOING OFF OF, THE
  • 00:09:41.170 --> 00:09:46.040
  • DOCUMENT ITSELF, THEY DON'T WANT TO STICK TO THE FOUR CORNERS OF
  • 00:09:46.050 --> 00:09:48.150
  • THE DOCUMENT, THANN. THEY ARE MOVING INTO THE LAND OF, IF YOU
  • 00:09:48.160 --> 00:09:51.170
  • DON'T DO WHAT WE SAY, YOU'RE OBSTRUCTING. THANN BENNETT:
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:54.020
  • WELL, THAT'S REALLY THE TIE HERE, JAY. I MEAN, THIS IS JUST
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:56.060
  • THE LATEST IN A LONG STRING OF ATTEMPTS TO DO ANYTHING THEY CAN
  • 00:09:56.070 --> 00:09:58.220
  • TO OVERTURN, I WOULD TELL YOU, THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. OF
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:01.280
  • COURSE, THE PRESIDENT WAS THE WINNER IN THE RULING LAST NIGHT,
  • 00:10:01.290 --> 00:10:04.150
  • BUT SO WERE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. JAY, FIRST OF ALL, I THINK IT'S
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:07.040
  • SO REFRESHING TO SEE A JUDGE STAY WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF THE
  • 00:10:07.050 --> 00:10:10.000
  • POWER GRANTED TO THEM BY ARTICLE 3 OF THE CONSTITUTION, AND
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:13.050
  • DEFERRING TO THE ARTICLE 1 AND ARTICLE 2 BRANCHES AND THE
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:16.010
  • AUTHORITY THE CONSTITUTION GIVES THEM. JAY, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
  • 00:10:16.020 --> 00:10:20.140
  • SPOKE AND THIS WAS AN EFFORT TO UNDERMINE THEM. AND I WOULD TELL
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:24.170
  • YOU THIS, ON THE QUESTION OF SUBPOENAS AND DEPOSITIONS, JAY,
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:27.160
  • ANOTHER THING THAT WAS REFRESHING TO ME, HOW ABOUT
  • 00:10:27.170 --> 00:10:29.160
  • SECRETARY POMPEO SAYING, LOOK, THOSE DOCUMENTS DO NOT BELONG TO
  • 00:10:29.170 --> 00:10:33.000
  • MY EMPLOYEES. LEAVE THEM ALONE. COME TO ME. I WILL RESPOND TO
  • 00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:37.050
  • YOUR QUERIES IN AN APPROPRIATE FASHION, BUT LEAVE MY EMPLOYEES
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:39.270
  • ALONE. -YEAH, I WANT TO PLAY FOR YOU WHAT ADAM SCHIFF SAID
  • 00:10:39.280 --> 00:10:41.240
  • BECAUSE THIS TIES INTO, IT TIES EXACTLY INTO THIS CALIFORNIA
  • 00:10:41.250 --> 00:10:45.010
  • CASE. THEY'RE TRYING TO CHANGE ALL THE RULES. UNDERSTAND WHAT'S
  • 00:10:45.020 --> 00:10:48.150
  • AT PLAY HERE. THEY ARE TRYING TO CHANGE ALL OF THE RULES THAT ARE
  • 00:10:48.160 --> 00:10:53.030
  • IN PLACE ON THESE ISSUES. SO, HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THAT? WE
  • 00:10:53.040 --> 00:10:56.180
  • GO TO COURT. AND GUESS WHAT, ADAMS SCHIFF? BREAKING NEWS
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:59.100
  • ALERT-IF WE THINK SOMETHING'S UNCONSTITUTIONAL OR VIOLATES
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:02.130
  • EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE, WE WILL CHALLENGE IT! IF RUDY GIULIANI,
  • 00:11:02.140 --> 00:11:08.150
  • IF THE CONCLUSION OF RUDY'S LAWYER, IN CONSULTATION WITH
  • 00:11:08.160 --> 00:11:12.140
  • OTHER LAWYERS, IS THAT THERE IS ATTORNEY-CLIENT INFORMATION
  • 00:11:12.150 --> 00:11:16.080
  • CONTAINED IN THE DOCUMENTS THEY'RE REQUESTING, GUESS WHAT?
  • 00:11:16.090 --> 00:11:20.170
  • YOU SAY YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE, I'LL
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:23.230
  • TELL YOU WHAT WE SAY, WE WILL GO TO COURT TO DEFEND
  • 00:11:23.240 --> 00:11:26.240
  • ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE IF NECESSARY. SAME THING ON
  • 00:11:26.250 --> 00:11:30.240
  • EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE, IF NECESSARY. I CAN'T SPEAK FOR THE
  • 00:11:30.250 --> 00:11:32.280
  • WHITE HOUSE ON THAT, BUT IF IT WAS A CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE THAT
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:35.100
  • RELATES TO MY AREA, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE WOULD DO. BUT
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:39.070
  • I'M GONNA TELL YOU SOMETHING, UNDERSTAND WHAT'S AT PLAY HERE!
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:43.210
  • LISTEN TO WHAT REPRESENTATIVE SCHIFF ACTUALLY SAID. HERE IT
  • 00:11:43.220 --> 00:11:48.060
  • IS. -WE ARE CONCERNED THAT THE WHITE HOUSE WILL ATTEMPT TO
  • 00:11:48.070 --> 00:11:51.280
  • STONEWALL OUR INVESTIGATION, MUCH AS THEY HAVE STONEWALLED
  • 00:11:51.290 --> 00:11:54.210
  • OTHER COMMITTEES IN THE PAST. IT'S WHY I SAY THE WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:11:54.220 --> 00:11:59.120
  • NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT ANY ACTION LIKE THAT, THAT FORCES US
  • 00:11:59.130 --> 00:12:05.070
  • TO LITIGATE OR HAVE TO CONSIDER LITIGATION, WILL BE CONSIDERED
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:09.170
  • FURTHER EVIDENCE OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. -THERE YOU HAVE IT.
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:13.180
  • SO, LET ME BREAK THIS DOWN. WE ARE CONCERNED THAT THE WHITE
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:16.060
  • HOUSE WILL ATTEMPT TO STONEWALL OUR INVESTIGATION'-I'M GONNA GO
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:18.180
  • TO HARRY ON THIS. STONEWALL THE INVESTIGATION. YOU GET A
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:20.230
  • QUESTION, YOU GET A SUBPOENA, IT MAY COVER EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE.
  • 00:12:20.240 --> 00:12:23.280
  • IF THE WHITE HOUSE DECIDES IT'S PROTECTED BY EXECUTIVE
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:27.000
  • PRIVILEGE, HOW DOES THAT STONEWALL THEIR INVESTIGATION?
  • 00:12:27.010 --> 00:12:29.250
  • IT'S JUST SIMPLY COMPLYING WITH CONSTITUTIONAL NORMS AND
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:31.280
  • MANDATES. HARRY HUTCHISON: ABSOLUTELY! AND SO, HOUSE
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:34.210
  • SPEAKER PELOSI SUGGESTED AT TODAY'S NEWS CONFERENCE THAT
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:41.160
  • THERE ARE THREE CO-EQUAL BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT. AND SO,
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:45.040
  • IT IS CLEAR, BEYOND QUESTION, PURSUANT TO THE CONSTITUTION,
  • 00:12:45.050 --> 00:12:49.180
  • THAT THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH DOES NOT HAVE AN UNLIMITED RIGHT TO
  • 00:12:49.190 --> 00:12:54.190
  • INVESTIGATE THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. BUT ADAM SCHIFF,
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:12:58.090
  • NONETHELESS, BELIEVES THAT HE HAS AN UNLIMITED RIGHT TO
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:13:02.270
  • INVESTIGATE THE PRESIDENT. AND IF THE PRESIDENT SEEKS TO
  • 00:13:02.280 --> 00:13:06.090
  • EXERCISE HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY WITHIN THE MEANING OF
  • 00:13:06.100 --> 00:13:11.060
  • THE CONSTITUTION, THEN ACCORDING TO ADAM SCHIFF, THIS CONSTITUTES
  • 00:13:11.070 --> 00:13:16.160
  • STONEWALLING. WE ALL KNOW THAT ADAM SCHIFF'S ANALYSIS, PROPERLY
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:23.090
  • UNDERSTOOD, CONSTITUTES NOTHING MORE THAN NONSENSE. HE IS TRYING
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:29.200
  • TO REWRITE THE CONSTITUTION JUST LIKE THE CALIFORNIA STATE
  • 00:13:29.210 --> 00:13:35.170
  • GOVERNMENT ATTEMPTED TO REWRITE THE CONSTITUTION WITH RESPECT TO
  • 00:13:35.180 --> 00:13:40.040
  • THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR PRESIDENT. AND SO, ALL AMERICAN
  • 00:13:40.050 --> 00:13:44.120
  • PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALARMED AT THE LEFT'S ATTEMPT TO REWRITE THE
  • 00:13:44.130 --> 00:13:49.250
  • CONSTITUTION AND TO EFFECTIVELY CRIMINALIZE THE EXERCISE OF
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:55.210
  • CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE CONSTITUTION.
  • 00:13:55.220 --> 00:13:59.280
  • SO, THIS CANNOT STAND AND ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WHO ARE
  • 00:13:59.290 --> 00:14:05.150
  • IMPARTIAL, SHOULD RISE UP AND OPPOSE THIS EFFORT. -SO, HERE'S
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:10.090
  • AN INTERESTING QUOTE, I'M GONNA READ RIGHT FROM THE OPINION
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:12.050
  • HERE, BECAUSE I THINK THIS SETS THE TONE FOR WHAT WE'RE DEALING
  • 00:14:12.060 --> 00:14:14.200
  • WITH AT BASE, THE ACT (TALKING ABOUT THIS PRESIDENTIAL
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:17.180
  • SO-CALLED TRANSPARENCY ACT, WHICH IS NOW STRUCK AS
  • 00:14:17.190 --> 00:14:19.200
  • UNCONSTITUTIONAL, BY THE WAY) THE ACT SEEKS TO PUNISH A CLASS
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:23.170
  • OF CANDIDATES WHO ELECT NOT TO COMPLY WITH DISCLOSING THEIR TAX
  • 00:14:23.180 --> 00:14:26.110
  • RETURNS BY HANDICAPPING THEIR ACCESS TO THE ELECTORAL PROCESS.
  • 00:14:26.120 --> 00:14:30.130
  • THIS IS PLAINLY IMPERMISSIBLE.' SO, HOW COULD IT BE ANY
  • 00:14:30.140 --> 00:14:36.130
  • DIFFERENT, ASK YOURSELF THAT, HOW COULD THAT BE OKAY? AND THE
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:40.280
  • ANSWER IS IT CAN'T BE OKAY. IT IS A REPUBLIC-THAT'S WHAT,
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:46.080
  • THAT'S THE BEN FRANKLIN QUOTE-IF YOU CAN KEEP IT. WHAT THEY TRIED
  • 00:14:46.090 --> 00:14:50.010
  • TO DO IN CALIFORNIA WAS NOT ALLOW US TO KEEP IT. BUT GUESS
  • 00:14:50.020 --> 00:14:53.190
  • WHAT? WE WON. BACK WITH MORE IN JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:14:53.200 --> 00:14:57.030
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:15:02.170
  • JAY SEKULOW: LET ME TELL YOU WHAT'S AT STAKE. YOU LOOK AT
  • 00:15:02.180 --> 00:15:04.050
  • THIS CALIFORNIA OPINION, HUGE WIN FOR THE CONSTITUTION, HUGE
  • 00:15:04.060 --> 00:15:10.010
  • WIN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON BALLOT ACCESS. I MEAN, VERY,
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:14.150
  • VERY SIGNIFICANT. BUT THEN ADAM SCHIFF MAKES THIS STATEMENT THAT
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:17.180
  • IF YOU DON'T DO WHAT WE SAY, MR. PRESIDENT, IF YOUR WHITE HOUSE
  • 00:15:17.190 --> 00:15:21.170
  • DOESN'T DO WHAT WE SAY, MR. PRESIDENT, MR. GIULIANI, IF YOU
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:24.240
  • DON'T DO WHAT WE SAY, THAT'S GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT. AS IF
  • 00:15:24.250 --> 00:15:30.090
  • THE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE DOES NOT EXISTENT. AND BY THE
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:33.200
  • WAY, THEY PUT THAT OUT THERE THAT THE CONGRESS DOESN'T
  • 00:15:33.210 --> 00:15:35.280
  • RECOGNIZE ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE. REALLY? WELL, LET ME
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:39.130
  • TELL YOU, GO TEST THAT ONE IN COURT. SO, YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:15:39.140 --> 00:15:43.090
  • THIS IS. I MEAN, YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT'S AT PLAY WITH ALL OF THIS.
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:46.100
  • BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU A REALITY AS TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:46.110 --> 00:15:49.250
  • I'M GONNA TAKE CALLS. JERRY'S CALLING FROM RHODE ISLAND.
  • 00:15:49.260 --> 00:15:51.200
  • JERRY, YOU'RE ON THE AIR. GO AHEAD. -HELLO, TEAM. JAY, HOW
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:56.020
  • COME SOME OF THESE FRIVOLOUS ARGUMENTS THAT CLEARLY DON'T
  • 00:15:56.030 --> 00:16:00.260
  • HAVE A FOUNDATION, AND YOU KNOW YOU'RE GONNA WIN, HOW COME THEY
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:04.210
  • GET PAST THE FRONT GATE OF THE COURT CAUSING US TAXPAYERS TO
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:09.000
  • HAVE TO PAY FOR IT, OR THE DEFENDANT HAVING TO PAY, ARGUE A
  • 00:16:09.010 --> 00:16:13.200
  • FRIVOLOUS CASE? -WELL, LOOK, I MEAN, JERRY, IN THIS ONE WE HAD
  • 00:16:13.210 --> 00:16:16.090
  • TO FILE A LAWSUIT. THE ONLY WAY TO WIN THE CASE IN CALIFORNIA
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:18.210
  • WAS TO GO TO FEDERAL COURT. NOW, IF WE ALSO, AND I'LL TIE IT
  • 00:16:18.220 --> 00:16:21.160
  • RIGHT INTO THE SUBPOENA ISSUE HERE, IF WE BELIEVE THAT THE
  • 00:16:21.170 --> 00:16:24.220
  • SUBPOENA REQUESTS VIOLATES ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE OR
  • 00:16:24.230 --> 00:16:29.010
  • EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE, THAT HAS TO BE EVALUATED AND DETERMINATION
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:32.150
  • BE MADE WHETHER THAT WILL THEN BE CHALLENGED IN COURT. AND THAT
  • 00:16:32.160 --> 00:16:35.020
  • IS THE PROCESS UPON WHICH THIS GOES. THAT IS THE PROCESS UPON
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:38.170
  • WHICH THIS SHOULD GO IF WE ARE DEALING WITH THE ISSUES LIKE
  • 00:16:38.180 --> 00:16:41.140
  • THIS, WHICH WE ARE. AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO JUST WAIVE
  • 00:16:41.150 --> 00:16:45.080
  • CONSTITUTIONAL PRIVILEGES, HARRY, BECAUSE THAT'S IT'S A
  • 00:16:45.090 --> 00:16:47.270
  • HORRIBLE PRECEDENT, BESIDES PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT SETS A
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:16:51.220
  • TERRIBLE PRECEDENT FOR FUTURE PRESIDENTS AS WELL. THERE'S A
  • 00:16:51.230 --> 00:16:54.230
  • LOT OF INSTITUTIONAL INTEREST AT STAKE HERE, AND YOU CAN'T BE
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:57.040
  • BULLIED AND INTIMIDATED BY THESE CONGRESSMEN. HARRY HUTCHISON:
  • 00:16:57.050 --> 00:17:00.100
  • JAY, YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! IF WE ALLOW ADAM SCHIFF AND NANCY
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:07.110
  • PELOSI TO INVESTIGATE WITHOUT LIMITS, THIS, THEN, MEANS THAT
  • 00:17:07.120 --> 00:17:12.020
  • THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH'S POWER WILL CRUMBLE IN THE FACE OF
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:17.040
  • LEGISLATIVE DEMANDS. AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND THAT
  • 00:17:17.050 --> 00:17:21.220
  • THOSE DEMANDS, BASICALLY, AT THE VERY MOMENT WE SPEAK, ARE
  • 00:17:21.230 --> 00:17:27.060
  • VIRTUALLY UNLIMITED. VIRTUALLY EVERY SINGLE CABINET OFFICER,
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:33.170
  • EVERY MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH, ACCORDING TO ADAM
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:36.230
  • SCHIFF, MUST NOW TESTIFY AND GIVE TESTIMONY OR BE DEPOSED.
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:43.200
  • THIS, ARGUABLY, CONSTRAINS THE PRESIDENT'S ARTICLE 2 POWERS
  • 00:17:43.210 --> 00:17:49.140
  • WITHIN THE MEANING OF THE CONSTITUTION. SO, NANCY PELOSI
  • 00:17:49.150 --> 00:17:53.210
  • HAS GOTTEN ON HER HIGH HORSE TODAY AND PROCLAIMED HER LOVE
  • 00:17:53.220 --> 00:17:59.240
  • FOR THE CONSTITUTION. -THESE ISSUES THAT ARE BEING RAISED
  • 00:17:59.250 --> 00:18:02.200
  • COVER BOTH, EVERY HAT I WEAR, WHETHER IT'S THE COUNSEL OF THE
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:06.160
  • PRESIDENT OR THE ACLJ. I MEAN, THESE ARE CORE CONSTITUTIONAL
  • 00:18:06.170 --> 00:18:10.180
  • ISSUES, AND THIS WAS A CORE CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE THAT WE
  • 00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:12.280
  • DEALT WITH, LITERALLY, DEALT WITH JUST IN CALIFORNIA. THE
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:17.180
  • DECISION JUST CAME OUT YESTERDAY. IT IS A CORE
  • 00:18:17.190 --> 00:18:19.240
  • CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUE THAT WE'RE DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW ON AIR.
  • 00:18:19.250 --> 00:18:23.030
  • THESE ARE BIG ISSUES. AND I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING ON THIS BECAUSE
  • 00:18:23.040 --> 00:18:27.030
  • I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR EVERYBODY TO UNDERSTAND, WE HAVE
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:31.020
  • TO BE PREPARED TO DEFEND THE INTEGRITY OF THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:35.080
  • FROM AN ONSLAUGHT THAT IS TAKING PLACE RIGHT NOW. AND, THANN, YOU
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:39.050
  • WORKED ON CAPITOL HILL FOR A LONG TIME. BUT I WILL TELL YOU,
  • 00:18:39.060 --> 00:18:41.240
  • I'VE BEEN AROUND THIS FOR 40 YEARS, I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING
  • 00:18:41.250 --> 00:18:44.200
  • LIKE I'M SEEING RIGHT NOW WITH THE THREATS AND THE
  • 00:18:44.210 --> 00:18:47.130
  • INTIMIDATION. AND IF YOU DON'T DO IT OUR WAY, IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:18:47.140 --> 00:18:50.220
  • WAIVE YOUR PRIVILEGES, IF RUDY GIULIANI DOESN'T DISCLOSE
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:53.010
  • ATTORNEY-CLIENT INFORMATION, IT COULD BE CONTEMPT. AND WE'RE
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:57.010
  • GONNA ARREST THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. I MEAN, THIS IS, THIS
  • 00:18:57.020 --> 00:18:59.230
  • IS BEYOND ABSURD! THANN BENNETT: IT'S BEYOND ABSURD, JAY! AND TWO
  • 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:04.020
  • THINGS: ONE, I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE TO BE
  • 00:19:04.030 --> 00:19:05.220
  • PREPARED FOR THIS TO MOVE QUICKLY AS WELL, BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:08.030
  • UNRAVELING. BUT I DON'T THINK HOUSE DEMOCRATS WILL WALK AWAY
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:10.280
  • FROM IT. INSTEAD I THINK THEY WILL ACCELERATE IT. SO, PEOPLE
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:13.240
  • HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO MOVE QUICKLY ON IT. SECONDLY, I WOULD
  • 00:19:13.250 --> 00:19:17.030
  • SAY THIS TO CARL, JAY, I MEAN, WE TRY VERY HARD TO EDUCATE
  • 00:19:17.040 --> 00:19:20.030
  • PEOPLE ON THESE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS, SEPARATIONS OF POWER
  • 00:19:20.040 --> 00:19:22.210
  • AND ALL THE REST, ALL WE CAN DO IS PUT IT OUT THERE, THOUGH,
  • 00:19:22.220 --> 00:19:25.230
  • JAY, AS WELL AS DO THE WORK. WE NEED PEOPLE TO ACTUALLY LISTEN,
  • 00:19:25.240 --> 00:19:29.100
  • TO HEAR THE TRUTH, AND THEN TO STAND WITH US IN EDUCATING
  • 00:19:29.110 --> 00:19:32.010
  • THEMSELVES. BECAUSE, ULTIMATELY, JAY, THESE FEDERAL OFFICIALS,
  • 00:19:32.020 --> 00:19:34.280
  • WHETHER THEY'RE PART OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OR THE
  • 00:19:34.290 --> 00:19:36.230
  • LEGISLATIVE BRANCH, THEY'RE COMING BACK TO THE AMERICAN
  • 00:19:36.240 --> 00:19:39.050
  • PEOPLE TO VALIDATE WHAT THEY'VE DONE CONSTITUTIONAL OR
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:42.010
  • OTHERWISE. SO, WE NEED PEOPLE LIKE CARL TO STAND WITH US, GET
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:44.240
  • EDUCATED, AND THEN TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION. -I MEAN,
  • 00:19:44.250 --> 00:19:47.250
  • HERE'S THE THING, THIS IS AN INTIMIDATION TACTIC COMING FROM
  • 00:19:47.260 --> 00:19:50.090
  • THOSE THAT WANT TO UNDERCUT THE CONSTITUTION. THAT'S MY VIEW
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:52.070
  • NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, LET ME SAY THIS, WE HAVE OUT AN ACLJ
  • 00:19:52.080 --> 00:19:55.210
  • EMAIL RIGHT NOW THAT GOES INTO THIS. WE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE'VE
  • 00:19:55.220 --> 00:19:58.140
  • GOT A BRAND NEW PETITION UP AT ACLJ.ORG THAT YOU NEED TO SIGN.
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:01.120
  • THE FIRST LINE IF IT SAYS THE LEFT IS CRIMINALIZING THE
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:04.020
  • EXECUTION OF THE CONSTITUTION. I BELIEVE THAT'S EXACTLY THE CASE.
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:06.090
  • THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT WAS GOING ON IN CALIFORNIA. THAT IS
  • 00:20:06.100 --> 00:20:09.290
  • EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING ON WHEN THEY SAY, KNOW WHAT, YOU CAN'T
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:12.240
  • ASSERT ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE. NO, WE DON'T CARE
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:14.190
  • ABOUT EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. NO, WE DON'T CARE ABOUT DOCTRINES
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:17.280
  • UNDERCUTTING, WHETHER THEY HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO EXERCISE THEIR
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:21.010
  • JURISDICTION UNDER THEIR PROVISIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:23.160
  • WITHOUT FORMING THE COMMITTEES APPROPRIATELY. I MEAN, YOU
  • 00:20:23.170 --> 00:20:26.260
  • REALIZE THERE IS NO FORMAL IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION GOING
  • 00:20:26.270 --> 00:20:30.020
  • ON. THIS INQUIRY IS THIS HALF-STEP. IT'S A POLITICAL
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:35.020
  • FEEDER TO APPEASE THEIR BASE. THE BIG PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT TODAY
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:37.280
  • WAS MOSTLY, YOU KNOW, CAN WE GET THE PRESIDENT TO MANDATE THAT HE
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:43.180
  • VIOLATED HIS OATH OF OFFICE? WHY DO I SAY THAT? BECAUSE THEY SAY,
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:46.150
  • OH, YOU DON'T NEED TO LOOK AT THE CONSTITUTION, YOU DON'T NEED
  • 00:20:46.160 --> 00:20:48.070
  • TO LOOK AT THESE REQUIREMENTS. WE HAVEN'T GOT INTO THE FACT
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.120
  • THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS PERFECTLY WITHIN HIS RIGHTS IN THAT ENTIRE
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.090
  • LETTER. WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THAT FOR A WEEK. BUT YOU NOTICE
  • 00:20:52.100 --> 00:20:54.040
  • WHAT THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT TODAY? THE LETTER. I MEAN, I SAY
  • 00:20:54.050 --> 00:20:57.080
  • THE LETTER, THEY TRANSCRIPT. NOTICE THE TRANSCRIPT'S NOT A
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:20:59.050
  • BIG PART OF THE CONVERSATION. NO QUID PRO QUO ANYMORE. NONE OF
  • 00:20:59.060 --> 00:21:03.020
  • THAT. WHAT IS NOW? THEN IT WAS COVER-UP. WELL, IT'S NOT THAT.
  • 00:21:03.030 --> 00:21:05.110
  • NOW WHAT IS IT? IF YOU DON'T GIVE US THE INFORMATION, YOU'RE
  • 00:21:05.120 --> 00:21:08.130
  • OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE. THEY TELL THAT TO MY COLLEAGUE, WHO IS A
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:12.110
  • LAWYER FOR THE PRESIDENT, AS IF ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE
  • 00:21:12.120 --> 00:21:15.220
  • DOESN'T EXIST, BECAUSE IN THEIR VIEW IT DOESN'T. GUESS WHAT? IT
  • 00:21:15.230 --> 00:21:18.200
  • DOES. THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR THE BROADCAST TODAY. AGAIN, A
  • 00:21:18.210 --> 00:21:21.170
  • HUGE THANK YOU TO THE FAMILY AT THE TRINITY BROADCASTING
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:23.210
  • NETWORK. ALL OF YOU THAT SUPPORT TBN ALLOW US TO BRING YOU THIS
  • 00:21:23.220 --> 00:21:27.010
  • PROGRAM EACH AND EVERY WEEK AND WE'RE NOT PAYING FOR THE
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.250
  • AIRTIME. WELL TALK TO YOU NEXT WEEK.
  • 00:21:28.260 --> 00:21:30.240
  • -I THINK WHERE THEY'RE
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.000
  • GOING IS A COVER-UP OF THE COVER-UP. AND THAT'S REALLY VERY
  • 00:21:32.010 --> 00:21:34.260
  • SAD FOR THEM. -I WANT TO THANK THE WHISTLEBLOWER FOR THEIR
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:39.030
  • COURAGE. -WHAT HAPPENS WHEN AN IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION OF THE
  • 00:21:39.040 --> 00:21:42.020
  • PRESIDENT FINDS THE SMOKING GUN ON THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF THE
  • 00:21:42.030 --> 00:21:45.050
  • IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION? -I BELIEVE CONGRESS SHOULD TAKE THE
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:47.290
  • STEPS TOWARDS IMPEACHMENT. -I THINK THAT THIS PRESIDENT SHOULD
  • 00:21:48.000 --> 00:21:50.230
  • BE IMPEACHED. -IF THAT'S NOT IMPEACHABLE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:21:50.240 --> 00:21:53.100
  • IS. -I CAN'T BELIEVE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IMPEACHING THE
  • 00:21:53.110 --> 00:21:55.200
  • PRESIDENT BASED ON AN ACCUSATION BASED ON HEARSAY. -THEY'RE
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:58.220
  • USING THIS PHONE CALL TRANSCRIPT AS A BASIS UPON WHICH THEY'VE
  • 00:21:58.230 --> 00:22:02.160
  • STARTED THIS, WHATEVER-IT-IS, IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. THIS IS
  • 00:22:02.170 --> 00:22:05.230
  • NONSENSE!
  • 00:22:05.240 --> 00:22:08.220
