andrew mccabe. they deceived the court, not the 17 major deceptions and errors, 51 of them against donald trump and these illegal warrants were a major component of the entire trump russia investigation that put the nation through three agonizing years over what? over a hoax based on a phony dossier and fabricated evidence. heather: a neighborhood is evacuated after hundreds of military explosive devices are found inside a california home. >> this phase of the investigation is the safety phase trying to determine if these devices are live in figure out how they will get them out of the home safely. heather: they discover those laws while investigating a 70-year-old homeowner's death. he died of natural causes, a

this just showed how crucial it is for the former vp to take the stand but is that just the beginning? former federal prosecutor here with why the president's defense team could call on president obama. thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. >> he went on to see the impeachment manager common sense would tell us the allegation against joe biden is false. what is their strategy? talking about the bidens. >> i think for the house impeachment managers they are trying to shut down any possibility of calling any members of the obama administration or joe biden or hunter biden. when you talk about the democrats calling this a trial which it is not in any way, shape or form does it represent a look like a trial, they are calling it a trial but if it is a trial the president gets to put his defense in context.
that means what is he thinking. what is his thought process and why does he think ukraine and corruption in the bidens were relevant to his conversation with the president of ukraine? heather: goes to what donald trump tweeted yesterday. democrats don't want a witness trade because shifty shifts, the bidens, the fake whistleblower and releasing the transcripts, the informer and democrat disasters would be a big problem for them. we heard chuck schumer say that is not what we are going to do. we are not going to talk about the possibility of that with republicans. >> that is up your mark of what is so unfair about this. you have chuck schumer saying the president's defense team which thus far has not been able to prevent witnesses as democrats call their witnesses
in the house. the defense team is not had access to the transcript of the inspector general for the intelligence community, we don't know the identity of the whistleblower or his connection to various democratic officials in context. all these things would be allowed in a normal criminal trial. the defendant would be allowed to present the evidence, from the start of the case to the end of the case. heather: tray gouty agrees with you. >> the vice president, so as president obama because i would want to know if there was authority with the president at the time he made that, no loan guarantees less the prosecutor is fired. heather: quickly on this, what
about the possibility, zelinski is the only person on the phone call. >> there is no jurisdiction to invite him to testify. he and the president were on the phone call. defendant are allowed to present the context of the crime they are accused of. that involves a whistleblower, bidens and all of it. of the 20 the fisa court saying two of the four obama fisa warrants. what does that mean for the trump administration. >> interesting and significant because what it means as a practical matter the fbi has debunked the steel dossier in january of 2017 and after they did that.
with the steel dossier sources they knew carter page was not the agent of a foreign power engaged in clandestine intelligence activities on behalf of the foreign power and asked for the renewal in the warrant and there is only one reason. getting carter page allowed them to get all the trump campaign officials, anyone who emailed, texted or called carter page, there was be right for the government to rifle through those people's emails, texts -- bill: they need to pay attention from that. not once but twice they did it. thank you so much for joining us. 19 minutes after the top of the hour. an ear full from a father who scrimped and saved to put his daughter through college.

warren and she will have to answer that question and paying off student loans for people that are wealthy. >> paying for her health care plan, lots of issues, somebody should grab that guy for an interview. the time is 26 minutes after the top of the hour and the president is set to make history at the march for life rally, the head of the event said she has been a champion for the cause and we we hear from her when we return. ngs can plummet you to extreme lows.

>> first off as the attorneys general of 21 states that are represented we are very concerned about the effort of democrats in a house to overturn the 2016 election while trying to influence the 2020 election but more importantly in protecting the integrity of these elections that citizens of the state participated in we are trying to protect our country from the dangerous precedent this impeachment poses to our fundamental democracy so that is something we are concerned about. i don't want to the house of representatives he need a party having the control, the power of the presidency that this particular congress is seeking to have. heather: it goes for either party. it cannot be a legitimate basis to impeach a president for acting in a legal manner that could be politically advantageous, it would because for the impeachment of virtually every president, past, present and future. comment on that.
>> every president since george washington to donald trump has acted on matters of foreign policy and domestic policy in ways you could put a motive to them because they may have received a political benefit. barack obama in 2000 on a hot mike asking president medvedev to grand forks ability until after the election. receiving a political benefit, you can view a corrupt motive on that comes in with joe biden asking for the firing of the ukrainian prosecutor investigative company his son works for. i'm not saying these are impeachable offenses that you can impugn a correct motive. they never claimed to the articles of impeachment the conduct of donald trump was beyond his constitutional authority. he was allowed to talk to presidents and negotiate, they put a corrupt motive to him. heather: the president of ukraine saying the second person on the actual call that there was no quid pro quo.
what about what the house is done in terms of their investigation, moving forward with the trial and wanting to call more and more witnesses. >> i was a career prosecutor doing this job and one thing i've never that is gone to trial without a full investigation where i that at all the witnesses i could call the defense could call. they rushed to get an indictment before the united states and calling it an indictment when that is what it is in the form of an impeachment without calling the witnesses and they want the united states senate to do their job for them. they are accusing him of obstruction of congress because they are claiming the president prevented them from interviewing people and seeing documents but one thing we do before every trial is you have pretrial motions to determine if the information you have is discoverable or not. they could have had pretrial hearings to sue the president as to whether or not his executive privilege was applicable in this situation and they chose not to
do it, they chose to accuse him of obstructing congress. heather: now they say they want to call additional witnesses, four so far, but only their witnesses once again. nothing from the republicans, no trade or reciprocity, thank you for joining us, we appreciate your time today. have a great day and we will be right back.
heather: senator richard burr keeping colleagues busy during the impeachment trial, the north carolina republican seen entering the chamber, he brought fidget spinners, he is sitting at his desk with a blue one. he handed them out during the republican lunch. at least we to other senators responded using them at their desk but is that allowed? shakira and jennifer lopez countdown to the super bowl getting fans pumped up for the halftime show. ♪ in the 20 shakira posting this video of throwing a football while her new song plays in the background. j low getting a running start on the football field.
