Wyden: Every Day the Public Doesn't Have the Mueller Report 'Is Indicative of a Cover-Up'

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) stated that every day that passes without the public getting the Mueller report “is indicative of a cover-up.” Wyden said, “Erin, every day that goes by without the American people

Joy Behar: 'Clinton Was with One Woman,' Trump 'Is Screwing the Whole Country'

Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar said a possible impeachment of President Donald Trump would be different than the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton because she maintained the former president “was with one woman,” whereas Trump was “screwing the whole country.” Behar said, “If you look at history, follow the money got Nixon, and it got Al Capone.” Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “I’ve been saying it from the very beginning. I’ve been saying, this is about campaign finance law, you know the hush money, the workaround so he would sort of elude and, you know, the American public’s perception of having an affair with a porn star right after your wife just had a baby. He didn’t want the American people to know that about him. I think we need to look at the Emoluments Clause. The fact He’s lining his pockets and putting his financial interests before the interests of our country. I think that is where we need to go. If you’re the oversight committee, that’s what you need to look at.” Co-host Abby Huntsman,” Yeah, then focus on that one thing. I think this is going to backfire on Democrats because it’s so broad. They threw the

GOP Sen. Collins: 'My Best Guess' on Shutdown 'Is the End Is in Sight'

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) stated that her “best guess” on the government shutdown is that “the end is in sight.” Collins said, “My best guess is the end is in sight. I hope it will be by the end of next week. I am just sick that this has gone on so long. And that’s why I supported both proposals today, and I’ve co-sponsored a Democratic bill to have a three-week or a two-week continuing resolution that would reopen government while we continue to negotiate the border security issue.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Pence: Trump's Immigration Proposal to Reopen Government 'Is Not Amnesty'

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Vice President Mike Pence said President Donald Trump’s offer to Democrats to end the shutdown was not amnesty. Saturday, Trump proposed a deal that includes $5 billion to partially fund a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and a three-year extension of protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program recipients and temporary protected status holders. Pence said, “The president has said we will support temporary relieve for three years for DACA recipients and those who are in temporary protected status. This is not amnesty. There’s no pathway to citizenship there’s no permanent status here at all, which is what amnesty contemplates.” He added, “I think as the American people look at this, Chris, they’re going to see this for what it is. President Trump said ‘bring me the ideas from all sides, let’s put them all on the table.’ The president has made it clear what he would support. Now it’s time for the Senate and the House to start voting to secure our border and reopen the government.” In a series of Sunday morning tweets, President Trump defended the compromise, arguing the current proposal would not provide amnesty to recipients, but said

Deutsch: Today 'Is the Tip of the Iceberg' Trump's Presidency, Entire Organization Will Be 'Picked Apart'

Thursday on “Deadline,” Donny Deutsch said President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty to lying to Congress about a potential Trump Tower in Moscow was “the tip of the iceberg.” Deutsch said, “I remember sitting on this show when Trump was really leaving him out to dry. You don’t need even my insight to tell you when somebody is consolatory, their right-hand man for ten years, they know everything…It’s your lieutenant. He was in the family.” He added, “This is the tip of the iceberg. I’ve said this all along; Donald Trump could not get money once he was bankrupt in the mid-’90s other than Deutsche Bank. Once he’s out of office, this is not going to stop. Every ambitious attorney is not going to stop until they take this empire apart. This is not just the beginning of the end of his presidency but you’ll see his entire organization, his entire life, his entire fortune picked apart because nobody is bigger than the house. He tried to play the house.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Klobuchar: It's 'Pretty Obvious' Whitaker 'Is Not Qualified for the Job'

Monday on CNN’s “Right Now,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said it was “pretty obvious” acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is not qualified for the job. On her colleagues challenging the appointment in court, Klobuchar said, “I actually am supportive of what they’re doing. You see two similar cases. One, a Maryland case, and another one heading their way up to the Supreme Court. Basically the argument is that first of all, for such a high-ranking official as the attorney general, the Senate is supposed to advise and consent under the Constitution. The second argument is that the president used this vacancy statute as a reason that he could put in someone who I don’t consider qualified for this job. In fact, there is a more specific law that should apply and that’s a succession statute that basically says you go next to Rod Rosenstein because he’s the deputy.” She continued, “I think the answer for why Mr. Whitaker is not qualified for the job is pretty obvious. He’s someone who said Marbury v. Madison is not a case that should be respected. That’s pretty damning, to put someone in that job. And then secondly, you look at all of the

Adam Schiff: The Tearing Down of Our Justice Department 'Is Going to End'

Tuesday night on MSNBC’s midterm election coverage, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said now that Democrats control the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump will not be able to tear down of the independence of the Justice Department. Schiff said, “The chances that Bob Mueller will be able to finish his work improved for the reason that our committee and others, like the government reform committee and the judiciary committee, which under Republican leadership served as basically surrogates for the president in their efforts to batter down the Justice Department, to give the president a pretext to fire people at the Justice Department, all of that tearing down of the independence of these these intuitions, is going to end. Now that doesn’t mean that the president can’t still act in ways that are antithetical to the rule of law and the interest of justice, but it does mean we’re better able to protect our institutions and see this investigation, I hope, complete.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Steinem: ‘One Thing Worse Than’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court ‘Is Being Married to Him’

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” feminist and liberal activist Gloria Steinem said the one thing worse than having Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court was being married to him. Steinem said, “Obviously he was somebody that was not even on the first list of candidates. He was there because he believes in the power of the presidency over the Supreme Court. He was there for a specific purpose. But you know obviously I believe the accusations against him, but even if you didn’t, if you saw him on television, refusing to let his wife talk. She sat there the entire time, and finally, the interviewer asked her a question, and he answered. I mean that says it all, right?” She added, “The one thing worse than having him on the Supreme Court is to be married to him.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
