>> a number of sick people jumped over china alone. 17 people are dead. the virus is in twee 7 other countries including the us and screenings are officially underway at airports in atlanta and chicago, a patient visiting china returned to washington state before airport screenings took effect. and you this morning, 3-year-old girl hospitalized in california, this one is not the same strain causing the outbreak but is more common strain. it looks like the corona virus spreads through human to human contact and through the are. the symptoms include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough and in more severe cases pneumonia and death. the world health organization

>> trump withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in misery into a strategic partner to secure foreign help with his reelection. in other words to cheat. the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box. we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won. >> adam schiff attacking donald trump right off the bat during opening arguments, democratic house manager accusing the
president of cheating for 2020 reelection but the democrats uninterrupted hours of the senate floor make a case for impeachment. former assistant secretary of state for george w. bush robert charles joins me now with his indictment. what did you think about what adam schiff had to say yesterday over and over and over again, do they make their case at all? >> in and impeachment is in litigation you can use a work of fiction is your theory of the case filling in gaps with presumptions against the president. in my view, in my opinion it was a week presentation. it was self-indulgent with lots of poetic pauses but ultimately he didn't deliver the goods and that is what most americans will take away. a lot of senators were standing behind their chairs just to stay awake for his 2-hour presentation that tells you something. shannon: this isn't the first time or the last he has been
accused of fudging the details, is he going to get away with that continuously? >> he has the prerogative, he can say whatever he wants but the weight is received is very important and one of the things you are seeing, both of these articles are inherently we, neither of them state a crime even though we have a federal code with thousands of crimes you can choose from nevermind a high crime or and impeachable crime in both of these articles are week. the first is for abuse of power. you have to dig down and say what would happen in terms of witnesses. of hunter biden were call this thing would collapse like a house of cards. of a vice president takes his son to a foreign country, two foreign countries that individual then comes away with a multimillion dollar contract and the vice president makes an admission against interest that he tried to get fired and did
get fired the prosecutor who was investigating his son then you have what amounts to a colorful framework and the corrupt practices act. you cannot use your public office in order to create a financial advantage for a relative. the first one falls away. shannon: let's listen to the argument in reference to that. >> a legitimate concern that the reason the end the bidens were engaged in clear as day corruption. >> he wasn't in the white house, he doesn't work for this president, he wasn't involved in those conversations, he's not relevant witness. >> this began when he was in the white house. >> i was just going to say it is completely relevant because if the president was entitled to make the inquiry under the us ukraine 2001 treaty against public corruption which
encourages you to seek information on a crime. if he was entitled to do that than the first article falls away. as to the second article, the second medical obstruction of congress, there is no instruction of congress in history books. it's a made up term and it was made up because obstruction of justice was undermined by the mueller reports. >> we are almost out of time. while biden was vice president in the office, the obama administration also withheld aid not only to ukraine, $1 billion but threatened to move from pakistan to the philippines, egypt, the list goes down from there, all the circumstances for these incidents were different but still this is when biden was in office. >> i will add on the second article which he spent 10 minutes on he said an individual who resists a congressional subpoena and we did them all the time when i was working on the oversight committee is somehow should be arrested and detained and that is not true. everybody can seek to quash a subpoena and the president can do it on executive privilege or national security reasons which
is what he is doing. >> and they are making an argument for that right now. thank you for joining us, appreciate it this morning, 18 after the top of the hour and got milk? these senators certainly do, the drink of choice during the impeachment trial getting a lot of attention. carly shimkus joins us with wild social media reaction. when you move mes, you move more than just yourself.

fair that is what they expect, nobody should have to pay for the decision of another, larry says are they not seeking financial independence? despite this concern it doesn't seem they want canada or expect them to pay for their own security which is why prince charles might step in and fund their lifestyle for a year because security costs will be high. >> i have a feeling they won't have a problem. >> i think they will be fine. >> twitter freaking out because they drink milk or water and some are drinking milk. >> republican senators break ranks by drinking milk during the impeachment trial. tom cotton had a funny tweet, it is true i had some milk with my chocolate. i guess i could have added a white russian minus the kahlúa
but congressman schiff would've accused me of collusion was one twitter user says take a pic, it didn't happen. jp tweets i hope he snuck in some chocolate chip cookies too a twitter user said he wasn't even the only one. where is this milk coming from. to answer your question senators have to supply their own milk, it is not taxpayer-funded milk. it was created for senators with ulcers, also medication. >> you have to drink pretty quickly because it will get warm and you don't want to drink warm milk. >> this is horrible, this is awful. why in the world, they are killing off the iconic mister peanut mascot at of the super bowl. watch this. >> no! >> maybe he will be all right. maybe not. >> what did you do?
you they confirmed the tragic news on twitter saying it is with heavy hearts we confirm mister peanut has died at 104 years old, the ultimate selfless act, he sacrificed himself to save his friends when they needed him the most. please pay your starts with ripnuts, some popular brand are morning including skippy peanut butter, a toast to you, or your chiming and help us your 21 gun salute our nuttiest sweet friend and you know dropping a reverse card. i love it when other brands exchange messages on social media. >> they are publishing what they wanted to do. everybody's talking about it. we will all tune into the super bowl. >> their first viral commercial. >> maybe he is not that. we can cross our fingers. the time is 10 minutes after the top of the hour and the trump administration stepping up to

it takes time, effort and, what adam schiff decided was i'm not going to call bolton, or mulvaney or pompeo or send the subpoena. i will wait until it gets to the senate and if republican senators are dumb enough to do what i would not do we can all here for the first time whatever this evidence is but adam had three months to do whatever he wants the jury to do. it is the prosecutor's job to build a case presented. >> both sides get 24 hours over three days to present their cases. the president's legal team set to take over saturday. donald trump in the meantime following through on his october promise to address issues impacting law enforcement. >> donald trump is an unwavering supporter of our men and women in blue.
he recognizes this commission is much-needed to support law enforcement. it is to be sure long overdue. law enforcement faces more and greater challenges than ever before. >> reporter: launching the presidential commission on law enforcement and the administration of justice. here to weigh in on the biggest issues they should be addressing for nypd officer and deputy inspector andrew costello and blue lives matter founder, appreciate it. what issues should the doj be addressing? >> one of the first things as technological innovation. this is paramount when we look at law enforcement. we look at the parity with the civilian population and cell phones and things to that effect. it is necessary the police department have the necessary
resources in connection with matching up the crimes that are being committed. this is going at an optimum level, law-enforcement needs to stay with current codes and techniques. shannon: doctor? >> general bar hit it on the head about a training campaign for these types of crimes and identity theft related issues. most law enforcement is prepared to deal with them and prosecutors able to handle them. you are talking identity theft. no one wants to own it but for example you could live in manhattan, the crime could occur at a server outside the country. the proceeds of the stolen items or whatever could be delivered to another place or another state. no one seems to want to take ownership of this. we have a simple solution was wherever the victim lives is the jurisdiction.
>> donald trump and mike pence have been supporters since day one and always tried to enhance quality of life of wall street, one nationwide for the city's morale and third is no one could be the next officer darren wilson. they want to not be afraid when they put handcuffs on the they will go on the other side of the law. they want to help the public, not be the next headline. shannon: since you brought it up, more officers died from suicide than in the line of duty last year. 128 suicide, 134 died in the line of duty and i want to bring this up as well because you were referencing this. the trust in police at a low point, 29% of americans have a great deal of confidence in the police. what are your thoughts?
how do we change those numbers? >> my grandfather said if you want to be loved to be a fireman. it is always going to be pushed back. taking away someone's rights, the biggest superpower police have is the ability to make an arrest and take away their freedom and it is a big deal and no matter what people will go against the grain. >> times of changed with police agencies to disseminate information out immediately even if it is imperfect or not accurate. i'm not saying to put out false situations but they need to react faster and put information utterly and react to information that is disingenuous meaning technically accurate but leads to wrong conclusions. shannon: and not be afraid of reacting and more engagement in the community. >> these would be the police and
community partnership, both entities need to understand we need to coexist as one and when the community understands they are part of the police mission that makes for more fluid situation and that is the focus when we look at that relationship between police and community moving forward. >> this is a promise donald trump is keeping. from the beginning he has been very pro-law enforcement, pro-first responders, thank you for joining us and thank you for your service, great to have you back, 20 minutes until the top of the air and an american mom goes missing while vacationing in paradise. the family fears she won't be found alive. 2020 contender tells together looking to make hillary clinton pay for calling her russian asset. details on the new lawsuit next.

the past couple years as china did it used that to gain access to the corporate databases of major large companies and took the data, in some cases gave it to private industry. >> strayer made his comments trying to urge them not to use huawei because of the security risk. >> we haven't passing along these warnings. what about this? emotional support animals, everything from peacocks, small horses, they could be banned from flights. >> the department of transportation is trying to limit which animals would be able to fly as an emotional support animal. we have seen all sorts of things but by putting these new rules on animals it would allow only dogs specially trained as a service animal to fly under that
designation. the matter with you that could be banned are cats, miniature horses, peacocks, pigs, ducks but the changes would better define which animals are service animals. the department of transportation services to assure safe and successful air travel. they have seen complaint against unruly animals on these planes started to skyrocket over the last few years. >> that video of a peacock on its head walking to the airport. >> it was unreal. the time is 15 minutes until the top of the hour and the supreme court divided over a school choice fight waged by a couple of montana moms. our next guest explains how this landmark case is the tip of the iceberg in a broader battle against anti-christian bias. this fluff ball may be adorable but she is actually a jerk, the brutally honest adoption add that is going viral right now. hi! we're glad you came in, what's on your mind?

started all this. >> what started it was an effort to provide what was realistically a small scholarship that was opposed based on the exclusion, the blade amendment which traces to the nineteenth century. shannon: let's bring that up, the blade amendment. >> a failed constitutional amendment that would have excluded all central funds from religious schools. the origins of the blade amendment are anti-catholic, really emerged at a time when public schools were very protestant in nature, students would read from the king james bible and there was mounting fear that the rise of catholic school system mainly focused on catholic immigrants was important to a lot of public officials of the blade amendment while it fail this constitutional amendment was picked up by 30 states including
montana and that brings us to this case. shannon: let's take a look at that, 37 states with provisions and laws that bar public funding for schools and churches. did you get a feeling at all from the arguments were heard what the supreme court will decide? the decision coming down this summer. >> probably in july based on oral arguments yesterday. and those oral arguments we heard some compelling statements from brett cavanagh who went to the fact that this has its origins in this blade amendment that he called the grotesque episode in anti-catholic bigotry but more important reference was the 2017 case, trinity lutheran that established certainly in the supreme court's eyes 7-to that public funding can go to religious institutions if there is a general public good and we
go back to the constitution which declares the state has to be neutral towards religion, not necessarily favoring it. we've got from the plane amendment which tried to exclude catholic schools, anti-christian bigotry, all the way now to the fact that blaine amendment in states are being used against all religion. this is moved us squarely into the wider arguments and concerns about religious liberty but large in the country. shannon: we will see what they decide, that decision coming in july this summer. thank you for your insight. have a great day. 8 minutes until the top of the are, game of thrones fanatics getting fired up. >> i promise to fight for the living. i intend to keep that promise.
