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.

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
