Jeff Sessions says Democrats have lost their objectivity

ARE NOT SHANNON? >> Shannon: DOUG McKELWAY, THANK YOU

SO, AS DEMOCRATS PUSH FORWARD WITH THE NEXT PHASE OF THEIR IMPEACHMENT PUSH TOMORROW WITH THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HEARING FEATURING CONSTITUTIONAL LAW SCHOLARS, COMPARISONS WITH FORMER PRESIDENT NIXON ARE RAMPING UP AGAIN >> WELL, THE ONLY THING WE CAN SAY IS THAT IT'S NOT SO MUCH THAT THE SITUATION IS DIFFERENT, IN TERMS OF NIXON'S CONDUCT AND TRUMP'S CONDUCT WHAT WE HAVE SEEN HERE IS FAR MORE SERIOUS THAN A THIRD RATE THAT IS BEYOND ANYTHING NIXON DID >> Shannon: WELL, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW PROFESSOR DONOVAN TURLEY, THOSE WORDS CONSTITUTE A CHALLENGE FOR THE HOUSE

CHARLIE TWEETS THERE IS STILL DISAGREEMENT OF WHAT THIS IS, WHATEVER THIS IS, IT IS NOT NIXONIAN, AT LEAST NOT YET FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL AND NOW RUNNING FOR A SENATE SEAT, JEFF SESSIONS SENATOR, I WILL CALL YOU >> THANKS, SHANNON, GOOD TO BE WITH YOU >> Shannon: WHAT YOU MAKE OF THIS? TOMORROW WE WILL HEAR FROM LAW PROFESSORS, WHAT THE CONSTITUTIONAL FOUNDERS MEANT WHEN IT CAME TO IMPEACHMENT

TODAY COME HOUSE UNTIL CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF, AS THEY PREPARED THE REPORT TO GO TO HOUSE JUDICIARY, SAID THIS ABOUT PRESIDENT'S ACTIONS >> IF THE CONGRESS ALLOWS A PRESIDENT WHO IS SO FULLY AND A BLANKET LADY OBSTRUCTED THE WORK OF CONGRESS, EVEN INVOLVING AN IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE PRESIDENT'S OWN MISCONDUCT, THEN WE ARE BEGGING FOR MORE OF THE SAME >> Shannon: BASICALLY, CONGRESS HAS A DUTY TO STEP UP AND PROTECT THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENCY, BALANCE OF POWER AMONG THE BRANCHES, AND THE PRESIDENT WILL CONTINUE TO DO THINGS HE ASSESSES AS BEING, YOU KNOW, UNSEEMLY AT BEST, THEY DON'T STOP >> LOOK, HE HAS BECOME OBSESSED WITH THIS DEMOCRATS HAVE JUST GOTTEN SO FIRED UP AND AMPED UP THAT THEY ARE NOT OBJECTIVE ANY MORE

JONATHAN TURLEY, PROFESSOR TURLEY HAS SAYS THIS WILL BE THE NARROWEST BASE FOR AN IMPEACHMENT IN OUR HISTORY KEN STARR, WHO PROSECUTED ON THE CLINTON MATTER, SAID THIS IS NOWHERE CLOSE TO AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT'S WHAT I BELIEVE AND SO I THINK, THE DANGER IS, THE DANGER IS THAT CONGRESS WILL OVERREACH IT WILL SET A PRECEDENT FOR TWO READILY BRINGING IMPEACHMENT CHARGES ERICA WHAT IF THE REPUBLICANS ARE IN THE MAJORITY AND THEY DON'T LIKE A DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT? ARE THEY GOING TO START IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS, DISTRACTING THE ABILITY OF THIS GOVERNMENT TO BE RUN? ONE OF THE THINGS I LEARNED AS ATTORNEY GENERAL, IT IS HARD TO RUN THIS GOVERNMENT

AND THESE KIND OF THINGS DISTRACT EVERY LEADER EVERY DAY AND TAKE THEM AWAY FROM THE RESPONSIBILITIES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO SEE THEM DO >> Shannon: AND OBVIOUSLY, YOU SAW AND EXPERIENCED THINGS DIFFERENTLY THAN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DID FROM THE OUTSIDE WHEN IT COMES TO SOME OF THE ALLEGATIONS REGARDING THE 2016 ELECTION WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE BEATING BEATINGS, SENATOR KENNEDY IS TAKING BY NOT DISMISSING THAT RUSSIA WAS CERTAINLY INVOLVED, BUT SAYING IT IS POSSIBLE THAT UKRAINE WAS, AS WELL "POLITICO" SAYS THIS THE REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED THE CLAIM — AND FOUND NO EVIDENCE THAT THEY WAGED A TOP-DOWN CAMPAIGN AKIN TO THE KREMLIN'S EFFORTS TO HELP TRUMP WIN IN 2016

>> AND I'M NOT SURE HOW RELEVANT OR IMPORTANT ALL OF THAT IS, EXCEPT TO SAY IT DOES APPEAR THAT LEADERS IN THE UKRAINE DID WHAT THEY COULD TO COOPERATE WITH THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN, TO HAVE HER WIN THE ELECTION SO I THINK THAT MUCH APPEARS TO BE UNDISPUTED SO, I WOULD SAY THAT WHAT WE NEED TO FOCUS ON IS, IS THERE A BASIS IN THIS PHONE CALL TO JUSTIFY THE REMOVAL OF A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? I DON'T THINK IT'S CLOSE >> Shannon: DO YOU THINK — THE DEMOCRATS DON'T, EITHER, BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE, THEY SAY THIS IS A CLEAR CASE, THE ARTICLE WHERE THEY SAY, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO IN THE SENATE? SUCH AN OPEN AND SHUT CASE, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO TALK ABOUT? OF DIFFERENT DO YOU THINK THIS WILL BE IF THIS ENDS UP IN A SENATE TRIAL AND THE UNIT REPUBLICANS HAVE MORE OF A SEAT AT THE TABLE WHEN IT COMES TO CALLING WITNESSES? >> IT WILL BE HARD TO SAY FOR SURE, BUT THE RULES OF THE SENATE ARE PRETTY SPECIFIC ABOUT HOW AN IMPEACHMENT MUST MOVE FORWARD, RAPIDLY, AND FIRM RULES ON HOW IT IS GOING TO BE DONE CERTAIN MOVES ARE IN DISPUTE OR COULD BE ARGUED DIFFERENTLY, MOTIONS TO DISMISS AND THOSE KIND OF THINGS THAT MIGHT OCCUR, BUT IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO HAVE A SENATE — THE WHOLE SENATE — SITTING IN THE CHAMBER, GOING THROUGH WEEKS OF AN IMPEACHMENT PROCESS THAT MAY TAKE AS MUCH AS EIGHT WEEKS

THIS WOULD BE A REAL DISRUPTION OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES NOW, I THINK IT IS HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT THAT THEY STATE — THE DEMOCRAT STATE WHY THIS IS JUSTIFIED AND MY HOPE IS, MY PLEA TO THEM IS, DON'T DO IT DON'T START THIS PATH WITH INSUFFICIENT CHARGES OF IMPEACHMENT, THAT DISRUPT A COUNTRY, AND WHEN THEY ARE NOT JUSTIFIED >> Shannon: I QUICKLY WANT TO ASK YOU, ONE OF THE JURORS SITTING IN THE SENATE WILL BE SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS

SHE'S NOT ON THE CAMPAIGN ANYMORE, DROPPED OUT OF THE CAMPAIGN ANY THOUGHTS ON THAT? >> WELL, SHE CLAIMED ONE OF OUR GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS WAS TO STAND UP TO JEFF SESSIONS, BRETT KAVANAUGH, ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR, AND PRESIDENT TRUMP WELL, SHE IS 0 FOR 4, ALL FOUR ARE STILL STANDING AND SHE IS OUT >> Shannon: THAT'S QUITE A
