FNN: Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies at Oversight Hearing


>>> ALL RIGHT, FOLKS WELCOME TO "NEWS NOW" HERE

WE ARE GOING TO BE BACK RIGHT WITH YOU HERE IN ABOUT TWO MINUTES, AS THEY ARE ON BREAK WE WILL BE MONITORING THIS FEED TO GET YOU CAUGHT UP ON ALL OF THE OTHER NEWS OF THE DAY IN JUST A LITTLE BIT >>> AND WELCOME HERE TO "NEWS NOW" IT IS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH, 2017, TAKING A LIVE LOOK AT DOWNTOWN PHOENIX, AND YOU KNOW WHAT, FOLKS, THEY SAY ABOUT TUESDAYS IT IS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE DAY OF THE WEEK

YOU GET RID OF MONDAY, AND THEN YOU ARE BACK AND FOCUSED FOR THE WEEK HERE ON TUESDAY >> LET ME JUST TELL YOU GUYS THAT MIKE, WHEN HE WALKED INTO THE NEWSROOM AT 7:00 THIS MORNING, HE ANNOUNCED TO EVERYBODY THAT IT WAS THE MOST PRODUCTIVE DAY >> YES >> AND I THOUGHT, THIS IS A MAN WHO IS FOCUSED ON HIS WORK, RIGHT? >> YEAH >> THAT'S GOOD

>> YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FOCUSED, BECAUSE THERE'S NO EXCUSES ON A TUESDAY >> CORRECT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LIKE, OH, MAN, IF ONLY HUMP DAY WOULD GET HERE, AND THEN FRIDAY EVE, WHICH IS THURSDAY, AND THEN FRIDAY NOT BIG MIKE >> NO

>> HE IS HERE, READY TO ROLL, BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT GOING ON ON A TUESDAY >> LET'S SHOW YOU A FEED RIGHT HERE ON CAPITOL HILL WHERE THEY ARE TAKING A BREAK RIGHT NOW JEFF SESSIONS TESTIMONY ON CAPITOL HILL WITH A HOUSE HEARING RIGHT HERE, THEY WILL BE BACK IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES, AND OF COURSE WHEN THAT'S BACK WE'LL BRING THAT TO YOU >> THEY MUST THINK THIS HEARING IS GOING TO GO QUITE A WAYS TODAY THEY ONLY TOOK A 30-MINUTE BREAK

IT IS 12:01, SO THIS IS A VERY QUICK BREAK THEY ARE NOT TAKING AN HOUR AND A HALF FOR LUNCH AS SOMETIMES WE MIGHT SEE EVERYBODY IS QUICKLY GRABBING SANDWICHES OR WHATEVER LEFTOVERS I DON'T KNOW I JUST HAD A BOWL OF SPAGHETTI

IF YOU'RE A UNITED STATES SENATOR, WHAT ARE YOUR LEFTOVERS? ANYWAY, WHAT WILL WE SEE AND HEAR? I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN RUNNING AROUND THE NEWSROOM, MONITORING IT IF YOU HAD TO PICK A HEADLINE OR TWO OR THREE SO FAR TO COME OUT OF JEFF SESSIONS, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY MIKE? >> THE FIRST ONE BEING THAT HE SAYS HE NEVER LIED UNDER OATH THAT WAS A BIG ONE >> OKAY >> AND HE DOES RECALL THAT PAPADOPOULOS MEETING AFTER THE MEDIA REPORTS >> OKAY

>> THAT'S WHAT HE SAID ABOUT THAT BUT WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN INTO THE URANIUM DEALINGS WITH HILLARY CLINTON WE ARE EXPECTING THAT ON THE SECOND HALF HERE >> SO, I GUESS WITH THE PAPADOPOULOS STORY THAT'S OUT THERE, THAT WAS ONE OF THE IMPETUSES OR IMPETUS — ANYWAY, TO BRING HIM TO THE SENATE TO SEE IF THEY COULD GET HIM TO ADMIT SOMETHING THAT HE HADN'T ADMITTED EARLIER, BUT IT SEEMS TO BE STILL, I DON'T KNOW, NOT AN UNFRIENDLY QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION I MEAN, YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE WORD ON SOME OF THE NATIONAL HEADLINES "GRILLING

" I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WOULD REALLY CALL IT A GRILLING OR NOT >> NO, TRUE, IT HASN'T BEEN >> I HAVE SEEN HIM SMILE AND CHUCKLE A FEW TIMES TOO, BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE A WIDE RANGING DISCUSSION, AND IF THERE ARE ANY MAJOR BREAKING DEVELOPMENTS ON THIS RUSSIA STORY WHICH HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SO MANY MONTHS, BUT IF THERE'S SOMETHING REALLY MAJOR THAT COMES OUT THIS AFTERNOON, THEN THAT CLEARLY WILL BE A BIG HEADLINE IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE ANYTHING MAJOR YET HOWEVER, IF HE WILL EITHER CONFIRM OR DENY THE REPORT THAT'S OUT THIS MORNING — >> THAT'S TRUE

>> — BECAUSE WE — YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHERE SOME OF THESE STORIES COME FROM BUT THERE IS A STORY OUT THERE THAT HE IS NOT CLOSING THE DOOR, AND IN FACT MAY HAVE PEOPLE THERE AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ACTIVELY LOOKING AT WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS ANY TYPE OF, SAY, FINANCIAL MISDOINGS DURING HILLARY CLINTON'S TIME IN OFFICE REGARDING SOME MAJOR DONATIONS THAT WERE BEING MADE TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION FROM SOME RUSSIAN INVESTIGATORS IS HE BACK? IS THAT LIVE? >> THAT IS LIVE, AND HE IS COMING BACK THERE, SO VERY SHORT BREAK BUT LET'S KEEP GOING THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE A COUPLE HERE

>> SO THE URANIUM ONE DEAL, APPARENTLY, ACCORDING TO WHAT I HAVE SEEN ON FOX, SOME OF THE INVESTORS IN THAT MASSIVE FOX, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT URANIUM, RIGHT, YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT CONNECTIONS TO NUCLEAR AND EVERYTHING ELSE, AND THAT SOME OF THE INVESTORS IN THAT COMPANY HAD MADE SOME DONATIONS, POSSIBLY ENTIRELY COINCIDENTAL, I DON'T KNOW, TO THE CLINTON FOUNDATION AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME THAT THIS DEAL WAS BEING REVIEWED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT I DON'T KNOW JUST ON THE SURFACE OF IT, IT SEEMS VERY SUSPICIOUS, BUT, YOU KNOW, CRITICS ARE SAYING, WELL, IF YOU EVEN DARE TO LOOK INTO THAT, YOU'RE BASICALLY DOING THE PRESIDENT'S BIDDING, AND YOU'RE NOT BEING INDEPENDENT LIKE THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO BE SO, THAT'S A CHARGE THAT WILL BE OUT THERE TOO SO THE WHOLE STORY IS FASCINATING, AND I PRESUME THEY WILL DIG INTO IT, BUT THEY WILL PROBABLY GET BACK TO MORE QUESTIONING ON RUSSIA

>> RUSSIA, RUSSIA IT'S THE NEW MARSHA MARSHA HERE >> RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA >> BECAUSE THEY ALL LOVE TO PIVOT TO RUSSIA THERE ALL RIGHT

LET'S GET GOING THIS IS WHAT "NEWS NOW" IS ABOUT THIS WAS A FAST BREAK, A VENDING-MACHINE-ONLY BREAK >> EVERYONE GRABBED A SNICKERS BAR >> LET'S TAKE A LISTEN

>> — AND THEN INTERFERING INTO AN INVESTIGATION OF HIMSELF, COMMITTING OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S A FAIR CONCLUSION, AND I WOULD — BUT IT'S A MATTER THAT I GUESS WOULD BE IN THE BREADTH OF THE SPECIAL COUNSEL >> AND THE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE BEING UNDER MANY DEFINITIONS, THE MOST POPULAR ONE, ANY COMMUNICATION THAT IMPEDES CONSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, YOU BROUGHT UP BIPARTISAN EFFORTS TO PROTECT THE SPECIAL COUNSEL, MR MUELLER THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP AND THIS COMMITTEE HAVE REFUSED TO TAKE ACTION TO ENSURE THAT HE IS PROTECTED DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO FIRE SPECIAL COUNSEL MUELLER? >> I'M NOT ABLE TO EXPRESS AN OPINION ON THAT

>> CAN HE FIRE MEMBERS OF THE SPECIAL COUNSEL'S TEAM? >> I'M NOT ABLE TO ANSWER >> SIR, DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE ABLE TO BLOCK INVESTIGATIONS INTO HIS OWN CAMPAIGN? >> INVESTIGATIONS HAVE TO BE ABLE TO CONDUCTED WITHOUT FEAR OF FAVOR OR BIAS >> RIGHT, WITHOUT FEAR OF FAVOR OR BY THE PRESIDENT TO OBSTRUCT THE INVESTIGATION WHEN YOU FAIL TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, IT IS ESSENTIALLY A GREEN LIGHT FOR THE PRESIDENT TO GO AHEAD AND DO THAT I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT THE SPECIAL COUNSEL'S INVESTIGATION

THUS FAR, THERE HAVE BEEN SOME INDICTMENTS, A GUILTY PLEA CAN YOU TELL ME IN YOUR OPINION, DOES THE PRESIDENT HAVE THE POWER TO PARDON GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS >> IT WOULD BE PREMATURE FOR ME TO COMMENT ON THAT, I BELIEVE >> BECAUSE? >> THE PRESIDENT HAS THE POWER TO PARDON, THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT >> DOES HE HAVE THE POWER TO PARDON PAUL MANAFORT AND RICK GATES AHEAD OF A TRIAL? >> I'M NOT ABLE TO COMMENT ON THAT

I THINK IT'S SETTLED LAW >> WHAT DO YOU THINK THE SETTLED LAW IS? >> I DON'T KNOW >> COULD THE PRESIDENT TODAY PARDON DONALD TRUMP, JR, FOR AMONG OTHER THINGS, BEING IN CONTACT WITH WIKILEAKS REGARDING THESE E-MAILS? CAN HE MAKE THOSE PARDONS TODAY, BEFORE THERE'S ANYTHING FURTHER THAT COMES FROM THE SPECIAL COUNSEL'S INVESTIGATION? >> I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT AT THIS MOMENT, WITH ANY AUTHORITY >> GENERAL SESSIONS, YOU STARTED BY TELLING US THAT YOU'RE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S LAWYER

NOW, YOU'RE NOT RECUSED FROM GIVING US ANSWERS ON THESE YOU'RE NOT COMFORTABLE GIVING US ANSWERS ON THESE, BUT HERE'S THE PROBLEM THAT WE HAVE YOU SAID WHEN YOU STARTED YOUR TESTIMONY TODAY THAT THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN ADVANCING THE RULE OF LAW, AND WHEN YOU ANSWER THE WAY YOU HAVE, IT SUGGESTS THAT THE RULE OF LAW IS CRUMBLING AT OUR FEET YOU TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION WE TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION

AND WHILE MEMBERS OF THIS COMMITTEE AND THE MAJORITY MAY CHOOSE TO ABDICATE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY WITH REGARD TO THESE VERY IMPORTANT MATTERS, YOU CANNOT AND THE INTERFERENCE, WHAT YOU HAVE TOLD US TODAY IN JUST THIS EXCHANGE, WHAT WE SHOULD ALL BE CONCERNED ABOUT, IS ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE, IF YOU CAN'T TELL US THE PRESIDENT SHOULDN'T FIRE OR CAN'T FIRE THE SPECIAL COUNSEL AND EVERYONE WHO WORKS FOR HIM WE SHOULD BE WORRIED IF YOU'RE TELLING US THAT THE PRESIDENT MAY BE ABLE TO PARDON IN ADVANCE OF THOSE WHO ARE BEING INVESTIGATED WE SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT THE PURSUIT OF THE RULE OF LAW GENERAL SESSIONS, WE MAY, IN THIS COMMITTEE — >> THE TIME OF THE GENTLEMAN HAS EXPIRED

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAN RESPOND >> WELL, JUST BRIEFLY, ONE OF THE THINGS IF YOU RESPECT THE RULE OF LAW IS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SHOULD NOT BE GIVING LEGAL OPINIONS FROM THE SEAT OF HIS BREACHES, SO YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT THAT, AND THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU TODAY (SIMULTANEOUS SPEECH) — >> FROM THE RULE OF YOUR BREACHES — (SIMULTANEOUS SPEECH) — >> THANK YOU, MR CHAIRMAN I'M OVER HERE ON THIS SIDE

IF PURSUANT TO A WARRANT, THERE IS A WIRETAP, A CONVERSATION IS SEIZED UNDER THE FOREIGN SURVEILLANCE INTELLIGENCE ACT, AND THE ONE PERSON IS A FOREIGN AGENT, THE OTHER PERSON IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN, IS THE RELEASE OF THE INFORMATION REGARDING WHO THE AMERICAN CITIZEN IS AND/OR THE CONVERSATION OF THE AMERICAN CITIZEN A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW? >> I BELIEVE IT IS >> AND IF SOMEBODY RELEASES THAT INFORMATION — >> MAYBE A FACTUAL DISTINCTION >> IT'S A HYPOTHETICAL IF SOMEBODY RELEASES THE INFORMATION OF THE NAME OF THAT PERSON AND/OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED BY THAT PERSON, THAT IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE? >> UNACCEPTABLE, AND IT COULD BE A FEDERAL OFFENSE >> SO HAS ANYBODY BEEN PROSECUTED UNDER YOUR REGIME FOR DOING THAT, WHETHER IT'S BEEN IN THE WHITE HOUSE OR SOME OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCY, WHERE WE HEAR ABOUT LEAKS OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION? ARE YOU PROSECUTING ANYBODY FOR THAT? >> FOR RELEASE OF FISA OBTAINED INFORMATION? >> RELEASE OF INFORMATION OF WHO THE AMERICAN IS AND/OR THE CONVERSATION BY THE AMERICAN THAT'S CLASSIFIED INFORMATION

IS YOUR DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATING ANYBODY FOR THAT? >> I CANNOT CONFIRM OR DENY THE EXISTENCE — >> PROSECUTING ANYBODY FOR THAT? >> NOBODY IS UNDER INDICTMENT, ALTHOUGH WE HAVE GOT AT LEAST FOUR INDICTMENTS THIS YEAR OF LEAKS OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION, AND WE CONTINUE TO PRESS THOSE CASES >> ALL RIGHT, GOOD WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SURVEILLANCE ACT SECRET COURTS, ISSUING SECRET WARRANTS TO GET INFORMATION ON TERRORISTS OVERSEAS THAT'S GENERALLY THE PURPOSE OF THE F

ISA LAW AND FI

SA COURTS WILL YOU AGREE WITH THAT? >> WELL, THAT'S NOT A PERFECT SUMMARY — >> IT'S SHORT >> — BUT IT'S GOT SOME SUBSTANCE TO IT

>> IT'S TOO SHORT WE KNOW WE CAN'T TRUST THE NSA JAMES CLAPPER TESTIFIED BEFORE THIS COMMITTEE IN 2013 THAT THE N

SA WAS NOT SPYING ON AMERICANS THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN WE HAD SNOWDEN SHOW UP I DON'T LIKE SNOWDEN AT ALL

I THINK HE SHOULD BE PROSECUTED, BUT WE LEARNED THAT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WAS BEING SPIED ON BY THE NSA PART OF THE FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE SURVEILLANCE ACT GIVES AUTHORITY TO INTERCEPT COMMUNICATIONS BY THESE BAD GUYS, FOREIGN AGENTS OVERSEAS, TO COLLECT INFORMATION TO MAKE SURE THAT AMERICANS ARE SAFE DURING THAT PROCESS, WE'LL CALL IT INCIDENTAL INFORMATION, INFORMATION ON AMERICANS, WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THOSE CONVERSATIONS MAY BE, IS ALSO SEIZED

THE NSA SAYS THAT IS INCIDENTAL INFORMATION NOW, IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS OPPOSED TO THE U

SA LIBERTY ACT, WHICH WOULD REQUIRE THAT BEFORE GOVERNMENT GOES INTO THAT INFORMATION ON AMERICANS, WHERE THEY ARE NOT THE TARGET — THE TARGET ARE THESE TERRORISTS — GOES INTO THAT INFORMATION ON THESE AMERICANS THAT THERE HAS TO BE A WARRANT SIGNED BY A REAL JUDGE THAT STATES PROBABLE CAUSE BEFORE THAT INFORMATION CAN BE SEIZED NOW, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP, IS OPPOSED TO THAT WARRANT REQUIREMENT IS THAT CORRECT? >> THAT IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT

>> SO YOU'RE A FORMER JUDGE YOU HAVE A DEGREE — >> PARDON? >> A WOULD BE JUDGE, NOT A FORMER JUDGE TOO >> THAT INFORMATION, FIRST OF ALL, THE SEIZURE IS DONE BY GOVERNMENT WITHOUT A WARRANT, SO IT'S SEIZED ALREADY, AND BEFORE IT CAN THEN SEARCHED, YOU ALSO DON'T REQUIRE OR BELIEVE THAT A WARRANT SHOULD BE REQUIRED BY ANY COURT TO GO INTO THAT INFORMATION >> WELL — >> I'M JUST ASKING THE SAME QUESTION >> THE COURTS HAVE SO HELD

>> I'M NOT ASKING THAT QUESTION >> WELL, I AGREE WITH THE COURTS, NOT YOU CONGRESSMAN, ON THAT YOU GET LAWFULLY OBTAINED RECORDS, DOCUMENTS — >> RECLAIMING MY TIME >> ALL RIGHT >> YOU AGREE WITH THE COURTS ON THAT, NOT ME

BUT LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CONGRESS TO SET THE PRIVACY STANDARD FOR AMERICANS >> THAT IS CORRECT >> IT IS MY PERSONAL OPINION, AND I THINK THE CONSTITUTION SUPPORTS IT, THAT BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT CAN GO IN AND SEIZE SOMETHING THAT'S INCIDENTAL TO THE SEARCH ON THE TARGET, THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET A WARRANT FOR THE TARGET THAT'S SPYING ON AMERICANS

AND WE KNOW WE CAN'T TRUST THE NSA TO KEEP FROM DOING THAT IS THAT DATA EVER DESTROYED ON AMERICANS, OR IS IT KEPT FOREVER? >> I BELIEVE IT DEFINITELY HAS A LIMITED TIME SPAN, AND I THINK IT IS FIVE YEARS

>> SO AMERICANS SHOULDN'T BE CONCERNED THAT INFORMATION IS BEING COLLECTED — >> TIME OF THE GENTLEMAN HAS EXPIRED THE CHAIR RECOGNIZES THE GENTLEMAN FROM ILLINOIS MR GUTIERREZ, FOR FIVE MINUTES >> THANK YOU

>> — NATIONAL MATTERS, LIKE GUN CONTROL AND IMMIGRATION YOUR SIDE CLEARLY WANTS AN INVESTIGATION OF HILLARY CLINTON, AND OUR SIDE HAS BEEN BEGGING FOR MONTHS TO HOLD HEARINGS TO START AN INVESTIGATION OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND CAMPAIGNS, IMPROPER TIES TO MR PUTIN AND THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT WE COULD SAVE THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS A LOT OF MONEY I PROPOSE WE GO TO HILLARY CLINTON AND DONALD TRUMP AND ASK THEM BOTH TO RESIGN

THEN WE CAN MOVE ON FROM A SITUATION THAT NEVER SEEMS TO END I AM NOT SURE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET HILLARY CLINTON TO RESIGN FROM SHE DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE IN CHARGE OF ANYTHING LAST TIME I CHECKED, SHE GOT 3 MILLION MORE VOTES THAN DONALD TRUMP AND THEN LOST THE ELECTION WHY DON'T WE MOVE ON

YOU SAID IT WAS A BRILLIANT CAMPAIGN REGARDING THE DONALD TRUMP CAMPAIGN IS THAT TRUE? DO YOU FEEL THAT? >> IT WAS A REMARKABLE CAMPAIGN >> A REMARKABLE BRILLIANT CAMPAIGN NOW, IN CAMPAIGNS, CANDIDATES MAKE PROMISES DURING CAMPAIGNS DO YOU THINK CANDIDATES SHOULD FULFILL THE PROMISES THEY MAKE DURING CAMPAIGNS? >> PEOPLE MAKE A LOT OF PROMISES

>> IT WAS A BRILLIANT CAMPAIGN AND AS A MEMBER OF THE CABINET OF PRESIDENT TRUMP, DO YOU FEEL AN OBLIGATION TO FULFILL THOSE CAMPAIGN PROMISES, WHEN HE ASKED YOU TO COME ON? DO YOU THINK YOU SHOULD FULFILL THE CAMPAIGN PROMISES? >> I BELIEVE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SHOULD ENFORCE THE LAW, FIRST AND FOREMOST >> BUT YOU'RE HELPING HIM OWN THE MUSLIM BAN, ON THE IMMIGRATION ISSUE >> THE PRESIDENT MAKES DECISIONS, AND IF IT'S LAWFUL, WE DEFEND IT >> IF IT'S LAWFUL, I LIKE THAT, IF IT'S LAWFUL

BUT YOU SAID THAT IT WAS A BRILLIANT AND REMARKABLE CAMPAIGN HE SAID, QUOTE, DURING THE SECOND DEBATE — >> AND WELCOME BACK HERE TO NEWS NOW WE ARE TAKING A LIVE LOOK INSIDE CAPITOL HILL WHERE ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS IS CONTINUING HIS TESTIMONY WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO LISTEN IN A LITTLE BIT MORE WE ARE LEARNING OF ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS TALK ABOUT RUSSIAN CONTACTS AS WELL AS NOW WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT THE ELECTION 2016

LET'S LISTEN >> HE DID SAY HE WOULD PUT HER IN JAIL HE SAID HE WOULD ASK THE ATTORNEY GENERAL, YOU, TO SET UP A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR THAT'S A QUOTE I DIDN'T MAKE THAT UP

ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP THE CAMPAIGN PROMISE? >> I'LL FULFILL MY RESPONSIBILITIES >> ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP THE CAMPAIGN PROMISE? IT'S A PROMISE YOUR BOSS, HE HIRED YOU — >> WE WILL COMPLY WITH THE LAW WITH REGARD TO SPECIAL PROSECUTOR APPOINTMENTS >> ARE YOU GOING TO APPOINT ONE AS HE PROMISED DURING THE CAMPAIGN? HE'S REMINDED YOU A COUPLE OF TIMES IN A FEW OF HIS TWEETS THAT THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO >> I WILL FULFILL MY DUTY AS ATTORNEY GENERAL >> SO THE BRILLIANT CAMPAIGN, REMARKABLE CAMPAIGN, BIG SMILE ON YOUR FACE, BUT YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FULFILL YOUR CAMPAIGN PROMISES

I HOPE YOU DON'T I'M KIND OF HAPPY WITH YOUR ANSWERS UP TO NOW SO MR ATTORNEY GENERAL, I'M GOING TO ASK YOU ANOTHER SERIES OF QUESTIONS, AND I WOULD LIKE TO GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THE SESSION AND GET YOU TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION ARE YOU AWARE THAT ANSWERS MUST BE THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH? >> I AM AWARE OF THAT

>> I BROUGHT THIS LITTLE SALT SHAKER, AND YOU'LL FORGIVE ME IF I PUT A LITTLE BIT OF DOUBT INTO THAT ANSWER, AND ASSIGNED YOU THAT I NEED THIS I ASK FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT THAT THIS ARTICLE BE ENTERED INTO THE RECORD WITH THE HEADLINE THREE TIMES JEFF SESSIONS MADE FALSE STATEMENTS UNDER OATH TO CONGRESS I ASK THIS BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IN A FEW DAYS OR IN A FEW WEEKS THAT YOUR ANSWERS HAVE CHANGED, MR ATTORNEY GENERAL, BASED ON NEWLY UNCOVERED EVIDENCE THAT WHAT YOU TOLD US BEFORE WAS IN FACT, FALSE, MISLEADING, OR SOMETHING OTHER THAN THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH I ASK THAT THIS BE MADE PART OF THE RECORD

>> THAT WILL BE MADE PART OF THE RECORD >> THANK YOU YOU SAID, QUOTE, "AS A TIME FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, YOU DID NOT HAVE COMMUNICATIONS WITH RUSSIANS, BUT IN MARCH IT WAS REVEALED THAT YOU DID DID YOU HAVE CAMPAIGN COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE RUSSIANS? BECAUSE IT APPEARS YOU HAVE HAD CAMPAIGN COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE RUSSIANS, MR ATTORNEY GENERAL? >> THAT IS — I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND TO THAT

I THOUGHT I HAD THE PAPER RIGHT HERE, AND SURELY I DO, BUT — HERE IT IS MR CHAIRMAN, I'LL TAKE A COUPLE OF MINUTES I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND TO THAT COLLEAGUES, I GUESS FORMER COLLEAGUES, SENATOR FRANKEN ASKED ME THIS QUESTION

OKAY CNN HAS JUST PUBLISHED A STORY, AND I'M TELLING YOU ABOUT A NEWS STORY THAT'S JUST BEEN PUBLISHED I'M NOT EXPECTING YOU TO KNOW WHETHER OR NOT IT'S TRUE, BUT CNN JUST PUBLISHED A STORY ALLEGING THAT THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THAT THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY PROVIDED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESIDENT ELECT LAST WEEK THAT INCLUDED INFORMATION THAT, QUOTE, "RUSSIAN OPERATIVES CLAIMED TO HAVE COMPROMISING PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT MR TRUMP," CLOSED QUOTE THESE DOCUMENTS ALSO ALLEGEDLY SAY, QUOTE, "THERE WAS A CONTINUING EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION DURING THE CAMPAIGN BETWEEN TRUMP'S SURROGATES AND INTERMEDIIES FOR THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT," CLOSED QUOTE

HE WENT ON TO SAY I'M TELLING YOU THIS IS ALL COMING OUT, AND IF IT'S TRUE, IT'S EXTREMELY SERIOUS, AND IF THERE'S ANY EVIDENCE THAT ANYONE WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN COMMUNICATED WITH THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT DURING THE COURSE OF THIS CAMPAIGN, WHAT WILL YOU DO I WAS TAKEN ABACK BY THIS I HAVE NEVER HEARD — THIS WAS HAPPENING WHILE I WAS TESTIFYING, I SUPPOSE, AND I SAID SENATOR FRANKEN, I'M NOT AWARE OF ANY OF THOSE ACTIVITIES I HAVE BEEN CALLED A SURROGATE A TIME OR TWO IN THE CAMPAIGN, AND I DIDN'T HAVE, DID NOT HAVE COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE RUSSIANS I'M UNABLE TO COMMENT ON IT

>> AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO CORRECT THAT TODAY? >> MY ANSWER WAS RESPONSIVE TO HIS CHARGE ABOUT A CONTINUING — >> IF YOU WANT TO CORRECT IT OR CLARIFY IT TODAY FOR US? >> THE TIME OF THE GENTLEMAN HAS INSPIRED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAN ANSWER THE QUESTION, AND THEN WE ARE MOVING ON >> THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE IT MY FOCUS WAS RESPONDING TO I AS A SURROGATE WAS PARTICIPATING AS A SERIES OF MEETINGS AS AN INTERMEDIARY WITH THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT

AND I CERTAINLY DIDN'T MEAN THAT I HAD NEVER MET A RUSSIAN IN THE HISTORY OF MY LIFE, SO I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS RESPONSIVE, AND MY RESPONSE WAS ACCORDING TO THE WAY I HEARD THE QUESTION, IS AS HONESTLY AS I COULD GIVE IT AT THE TIME I HOPE YOU'LL TREAT ME FAIRLY WHEN YOU EVALUATE THAT >> THE CHAIR RECOGNIZES THE GENTLEMAN FROM PENNSYLVANIA, MR MARINO, FOR FIVE MINUTES >> THANK YOU

I APPRECIATE BEING HERE I MEAN IT I WANT TO ASK YOU SOME QUESTIONS BECAUSE I AM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE REGULATORY AND ANTITRUST ON THE JUDICIARY AND ANTITRUST IS AN ISSUE SURFACING NOW MORE SO THAN IT EVER HAS IN THE PAST, AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT'S ROLE IS VERY CRITICAL IN ANTITRUST ISSUES TO DETERMINE WHETHER THERE IS AN ANTITRUST VIOLATION I UNDERSTAND THAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT'S POSITION ON THE AT&T MERGER WILL REQUIRE DIVESTMENT OF SOME ASSETS

BEHAVIORAL CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN USED IN MERGERS SINCE THEY POSE A LESSER DANGER TO COMPETITION THAN HORIZONTAL MERGERS IS THE STRUCTURAL CONDITION IN VERTICAL MERGERS A POLICY FOR DOJ AT THIS POINT? >> ANTITRUST POLICY IS IMPORTANT

I HAVE NEVER BEEN AN EXPERT AT IT IT WAS ONE SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE JUDICIARY I NEVER CHOSE TO BE A PART OF BUT WE HAVE AN EXPERIENCED TEAM IN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE WE DO TRY TO HANDLE EACH CASE PROFESSIONALLY WE HAVE A GOOD CHIEF NOW OF THE ANTITRUST DIVISION, AND I'M NOT ABLE TO ANNOUNCE NEW ANY POLICIES AT THIS TIME, CONGRESSMAN

>> WILL THERE BE A DISCUSSION CONCERNING VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL MERGERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE SO-CALLED TERM "BEHAVIORAL CONDITIONS," WHERE TWO COMPANIES THAT ARE MERGING MAY HAVE TO DIVEST? COULD THERE BE FUTURE DISCUSSION AS TO WHEN THIS BEHAVIORAL CONDITION WOULD BE IMPLEMENTED? >> WELL, THE VERTICAL-HORIZONTAL ISSUE IS SOMETHING THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF THE DISCUSSION I DON'T THINK IT'S DISPOSITIVE OF ANY FINAL DECISION, BUT I'M REALLY NOT ABLE, AT THIS TIME, TO COMMENT ON ANYTHING THAT WOULD BE PART OF AN ONGOING MATTER >> I UNDERSTAND >> AND I APPRECIATE YOU GIVING ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO NOT ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THAT >> I'M GOING TO SWITCH TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING

WHEN I WAS A US ATTORNEY, WE HANDLED SOME VERY HEARTBREAKING AND VERY SEVERE SITUATIONS CONCERNING HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND I KNOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND, LIKE I UNDERSTAND, THE CHALLENGES INVOLVED THERE BUT WHAT — CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE D

OJ HAS DONE IN UPPING THE PROSECUTIONS FOR CASES INVOLVING ANTIHUMAN TRAFFICKING? >> WE BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT WE CAN DO EVEN MORE IT'S BEEN A PRIOR TO FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS I WAS RECENTLY IN THE MINNESOTA UNITED STATES ATTORNEY'S OFFICE

THEY HAD A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL CASE I WAS SURPRISED HOW MUCH MONEY WAS INVOLVED, AS MUCH AS DRUG DEALERS MAY MAKE WE HAD A RECENT REPORT OF OUR PEOPLE MEETING WITH THE CHILD EXPLOITATION GROUP MY ASSOCIATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, NUMBER THREE, RACHEL BRAND, IS VERY INTERESTED IN THIS, AND I HAVE EMPOWERED HER TO BE ENGAGED IN ADVANCING OUR EFFORTS IN THIS REGARD, AND SHE IS ENTHUSIASTICALLY RESPONDING TO THAT >> IF I MAY MAKE A SUGGESTION AS WELL, SEVERAL YEARS AGO, WE IN THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA PROSECUTED ONE OF THE BIGGEST SEX TRAFFICKING CASES ON THE EAST COAST, OBVIOUSLY, AND FOR THE MOST PART, INVOLVING WOMEN AND VERY YOUNG GIRLS

WE HAD A GOOD CONVICTION THESE PEOPLE WENT AWAY FOR 30 OR 40 YEARS BUT ONE OF THE AREAS THAT WE HAVE TO HELP MORE WITH THE VICTIMS IS THE PROTECTIONS SIDE OF THINGS OF COURSE, DURING THE INVESTIGATION AND DURING THE TRIAL, BUT SUBSEQUENT TO THE CONVICTIONS THAT THESE PEOPLE, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN AREN'T FORGOTTEN, AND THERE ARE PROTECTIONS KEEPING THEM FROM DOING SO TO ANYONE ELSE I THANK YOU, AND I YIELD BACK

IT'S #GOPTAXSCAM SO WE'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM SOME OF THE DEMOCRATS INCLUDING NANCY PELOSI ABOUT THAT SITUATION, THE GOP TAX CUT BILL LET'S LISTEN IN >> — THEIR FATHER'S JOB, BOUGHT MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AS A SECONDARY WITHOUT MEDICAL ASSISTANCE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO IF MY DAUGHTER FLARED UP AGAIN

SNAP HAS GIVEN ME THE CHANCE TO COOK MORE AND HEALTHIER FOOD FOR MY KIDS

NOW I CAN PUT MEAT IN IT FOR THEM MY SON HAS AUTISM AND TEXTURES CAN BE A STRUGGLE FOR HIM, WHICH IS TRUE OF A LOT OF KIDS ON THE SPECTRUM THE OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST AT SCHOOL SUGGESTED VARYING HIS FOODS TO GET DIFFERENT TEXTURES INTO HIS LIFE I'M ABLE TO DO THAT NOW BECAUSE OF SN

AP WHERE I REALLY COULDN'T DO IT WELL BEFORE I'VE BEEN BUYING MORE PRODUCE I COULD RARELY AFFORD TO TRY NEW THINGS THAT HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO EAT BECAUSE WE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE EXTRA FUNDS

MY KIDS NOW CAN TRY MORE THINGS AND GET MORE FOOD THAT WILL NOURISH THEIR BODIES AND MINDS MY DAUGHTER'S PRESCHOOL IS $320 A MONTH I CAN'T AFFORD MORE THAN THAT, SO I HAVE A PART-TIME JOB THAT ALLOWS ME TO CARE FOR HER WHEN SHE'S NOT AT PRESCHOOL MY PARENTS LIVE NEARBY AND TRY TO HELP OUT WHEN THEY CAN HIS DO ALSO, BUT THEY ALL STILL WORK AND CAN'T BE AROUND TO PICK UP ALL THE SLACK ALL THE TIME

SINCE I'VE BEEN A MOM, I'VE ALWAYS WORKED ONE OR TWO JOBS AT A TIME THAT HAD ME WORKS FROM 25 TO 50 HOURS A WEEK SINCE WE WERE NEVER ABLE AFFORD FULL-TIME CHILD CARE, I HAVEN'T WORKED SINCE MY DAUGHTER WAS IN CHILD CARE THE CUTS TO THE PROGRAM THAT WOULD RESULT IN THE TAX BILL TERRIFY ME WE WOULD LOSE OUR MEDICAL ASSISTANCE, ANY MEDICAL EMERGENCY PUTS OUR FAMILY INTO POVERTY S

NAP IS HOW I FEED MY CHILDREN WITHOUT IT, THE ONLY PLACE MY KIDS AND SO MANY KIDS LIKE MINE WOULD BE ABLE TO GET A HEALTHY MEAL IS AT SCHOOL

NOT TO MENTION THE CHILD TAX CREDIT PROPOSAL WON'T DO NEARLY ENOUGH TO HELP MY FAMILY EXPANDING THE CTC BY JUST $600 WON'T COME CLOSE TO COVERING MY CURRENT CHILD CARE COSTS LET ALONE BE ENOUGH TO PUT MY DAUGHTER IN FULL-TIME CARE WHICH WOULD ALLOW ME TO PURSUE FULL-TIME WORK I WANT TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR MY KIDS MY CHILDREN DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY, WELL-FED, AND CARED FOR REGARDLESS HOW MUCH MONEY I MAKE AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE IF HOUSE REPUBLICANS FORCE CUTS TO THESE PROGRAMS, KIDS LIKE MINE WILL GO HUNGRY

IF WE WANT TO BE THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD AND THE BEST WE CAN BE, WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR NEXT GENERATION OF AMERICANS CARING FOR OUR CHILDREN SHOULDN'T BE UP FOR DEBATE FOR FOR YOUR TIME IT'S MY PLEASURE TO INTRODUCE THE CONGRESSWOMAN [ APPLAUSE ] >> I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO NICKIE FOR SHARING HER STORY

FROM WASHINGTON STATE'S FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT IN LAST WEEK'S MARKUP, I THINK IT WAS MADE QUITE CLEAR THAT THE REPUBLICANS' BILL IS FOCUSED ON PROVIDING TAX CUTS TO CORPORATIONS ON THE BACKS OF WORKING FAMILIES LIKE THE FAMILIES WE HAVE HERE WITH US TODAY CORPORATIONS WILL BE ALLOWED TO KEEP DEDUCTING SUPPLIES, OFFSHORING EXPENSES AND UNLIMITED PROPERTY TAXES, WHILE THOSE SAME DEDUCTIONS ARE ELIMINATED FOR WORKING FAMILIES THE TEACHER SPENDING HIS OWN MONEY ON CLASSROOM SUPPLIES WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO TAKE THAT DEDUCTION FAMILIES WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO DEDUCT STATE AND LOCAL INCOME AND SALES TAXES

IF A WORKER IS FORCED TO MOVE BECAUSE HIS EMPLOYER IS RELOCATING HIS JOB, HE'LL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO DEDUCT THE COST OF HIS MOVING EXPENSES BUT YOU KNOW WHO CAN STILL MAKE THOSE DEDUCTIONS UNDER THE REPUBLICAN PLAN, EVEN TO SHIP JOBS OVERSEAS, CORPORATIONS WHILE THE ULTRA WEALTHY AND WELL-CONNECTED RECEIVE THE MAJORITY OF TAX CUTS IN THIS BILL, MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES LIKE THIS ONE, WOULD SEE THEIR TAXES INCREASE WHAT'S WORSE, THE RYAN-McCONNELL PLAN WOULD ADD TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO THE DEFICIT MAKING OUR CHILDREN, OUR CHILDREN FOOT THE BILL FOR YEARS INTO THE FUTURE

THAT'S NOT FAIR TO CHILDREN LIKE JACKSON THAT'S NOT FAIR TO FAMILIES RELYING ON THINGS LIKE THE MEDICAL EXPENSE DEDUCTION TO MAKE ENDS MEET WE'VE SEEN THE TRICKLE-DOWN ECONOMICS SHOW BEFORE AND WE KNOW IT DOESN'T WORK SLASHING PROGRAMS THAT HELP WORKING FAMILIES TRYING TO GET AHEAD IN ORDER TO LINE THE POCKETS OF THE WEALTHIEST AMERICANS HAS NEVER LED TO ECONOMIC GROWTH AND IT NEVER WILL

TAX REFORM DONE RIGHT IS ABOUT FAIRNESS FOR ALL AMERICANS AND GIVING WORKING FAMILIES THE ABILITY TO PLAN FOR THE FUTURE YET EVEN THE THINGS REPUBLICANS ARE TOUTING AS HELPFUL TO THE MIDDLE CLASS ARE TEMPORARY IN THEIR PLAN WHILE THE HOUSE TAX BILL GIVES MASSIVE PERMANENT CUTS TO CORPORATIONS, WORKING FAMILIES HAVE TO LIVE WITH TEMPORARY SCRAPS THIS LEGISLATION IS FAR FROM TAX REFORM IT IS A PARTISAN DISASTER THAT HURTS AMERICANS FROM CRADLE TO RETIREMENT

I'LL NOT ACCEPT THIS I THINK EVERYONE UP HERE WILL NOT ACCEPT THIS BASED ON WHAT I'M HEARING FROM FAMILIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND IN MY DISTRICT, THE INCREDIBLE FAMILIES WHO'VE JOINED US HERE TODAY, NEITHER WILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WE MUST STOP THIS DANGEROUS AND IRRESPONSIBLE LEGISLATION FOR ALL OF THE FAMILIES HERE AND FOR EVERY SINGLE FAMILY ACROSS THE COUNTRY SO THANK YOU, AND NOW I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE SUZANNE TO SHARE HER STORY

>> THANK YOU GOOD MORNING I LIVE IN ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA I'M A DEDICATED MOMS RISING MEMBER BECAUSE THE ORGANIZATION WORKS TO PROTECT PROGRAMS THAT MATTER DEEPLY TO MY FAMILY PROGRAMS THAT ARE IN DANGER UNDER THE HOUSE REPUBLICAN TAX PROPOSAL BEING VOTED ON LATER THIS WEEK

MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE TWO CHILDREN WITH DOWNS SYNDROME, A 14-YEAR-OLD SON, CONNOR, AND A 12-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, SLOAN A MEDICAID WAIVER ALLOWS US TO LIVE AS A FAMILY TO RAISE OUR CHILDREN AT HOME RATHER THAN INSTITUTIONALIZING THEM NEITHER OF MY CHILDREN WILL EVER BE ABLE TO LIVE ALONE AND BOTH WILL NEED CONSTANT CARE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES ALONG WITH THE SUPPORT OF PROGRAMS THAT ARE FUNDED BY THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT, THAT'S HOW THEY LIVE IN OUR COMMUNITIES

WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE THE MEDICAID WAIVER THAT PAYS FOR IN-HOME SERVICES AND HELPS US AFFORD A CARETAKER FOR OUR KIDS DURING THE DAY WHICH ALLOWS US TO CONTINUE TO WORK AND BE — CONTRIBUTE TO THE ECONOMY IF ONE OF US HAD TO LEAVE THE WORKFORCE, THE FINANCIAL STRAIN ON OUR FAMILY WOULD BE ENORMOUS IT WOULD DEVASTATE OUR RETIREMENT SAVINGS AND KEEP IN MIND WE'RE SAVING NOT JUST FOR THE TWO OF US BUT FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR RIGHT NOW IN VIRGINIA, THERE'S A TEN-YEAR WAITING LIST FOR THE KIND OF WAIVER THAT WE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR CHILDREN IF FEDERAL FUNDING FOR MEDICAID WERE CUT OR MOVED TO A BLOC GRANT, THE SERVICES WE RELY ON WILL SURELY BE CUT OR LOST ALTOGETHER

IT WOULD HAVE A DRAMATIC AFFECT ON MY KIDS AND THEIR ABILITY TO LIVE IN THEIR HOME AND IN THEIR COMMUNITY FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES WORKING FAMILIES, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST LOSERS IN THIS TAX PLAN CONGRESS HAS ALREADY PASSED A DESTRUCTIVE BUDGET THAT MAKES OVER $4 TRILLION IN CUTS A QUARTER OF WHICH ARE TO VITAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS WHAT'S NEXT? MY CHILDREN RELY ON FUNDING FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO ADAPTIVE TECHNOLOGY IN THEIR CLASSROOM

MY DAUGHTER, SLOAN, IS NON-VERBAL SHE CAN'T SPEAK AND HER METHOD OF COMMUNICATION IN SCHOOL IS THROUGH TOUCH SCREEN TECHNOLOGY, FUNDED IN PART BY FEDERAL DOLLARS WITHOUT ACCESS TO THIS TECHNOLOGY, SHE WOULD BE CUT OFF AND UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE IN SCHOOL AND YET, SPECIAL EDUCATION FUNDING AND FUNDING FOR K-12 EDUCATION ARE ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

MY KIDS WILL EVENTUALLY RELY ON SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY INSURANCE TO SURVIVE AND THAT, TOO, FUNDING FOR THAT, TOO, IS UNDER THREAT THE HOUSE GOP'S TAX PLAN IS HEARTLESS AND TRAGIC AND ITS REPERCUSSIONS FOR STRUGGLING FAMILIES THEY ARE PROPOSING MAKING $15 TRILLION IN CUTS TO MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES

AND GUESS WHO'S FOOTING THE BILL FAMILIES LIKE MINE AND MILLIONS OF OTHERS OUT THERE CUTS TO HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS LIKE MEDICAID WILL GIVE THEM THE BIGGEST BANG FOR THEIR BUCK, BUT OUR FAMILIES WILL SUFFER THIS IS UNCON CHENBLE NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT TO MY FAMILY'S FUTURE THAN TO PREVENT CONGRESS FROM CUTTING THE PROGRAMS THAT HELP MY KIDS LEAD HEALTHY LIVES NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT ALL STRUGGLING FAMILIES CONTINUE TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE SERVICES THEY NEED MY KIDS DON'T HAVE A VOICE OF THEIR OWN I'M HERE TO SPEAK FOR THEM AND TO URGE CONGRESS TO REMEMBER THAT THEY MATTER, THAT THEY ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THIS COMMUNITY, AND THEIR FUTURES ARE ON THE LINE THANK YOU SO MUCH

AND I'D LIKE TO NOW INTRODUCE REPRESENTATIVE — [ INAUDIBLE ] YES THAT'S MY FAMILY OVER THERE AND THAT'S CONNOR AND SLOAN >> I REPRESENT DISTRICT OF PASADENA, CALIFORNIA I'M SO MOVED BY THE STORIES THAT I'VE HEARD TODAY

I WANT TO THANK THEM FOR SHARING THEIR STORIES OF HOW THESE CUTS WOULD AFFECT THEIR FAMILIES EACH OF YOU REPRESENTS THE MILLIONS OF WORKING FAMILIES THAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR AND WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE FOCUS OF THIS TAX PLAN BUT INSTEAD OF WORKING FAMILIES BEING THE FOCUS, THIS PLAN IS ABOUT HELPING CORPORATIONS AND THE RICH SO MUCH OF THIS BILL IS ABOUT MAKING THE RICH RICHER AND IT IS NO WONDER REPUBLICANS RUSHED IT THROUGH IN SECRET AND BRINGING IT TO THE FLOOR WITHOUT A SINGLE HEARING

THEY ARE HOPING THAT YOU WILL BUY THEIR SNAKE OIL PITCH THAT THE BILL IS GOOD FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS THEY HOPE THAT YOU WON'T NOTICE THAT IT OVERWHELMINGLY BENEFITS CORPORATIONS AND THE RICH AS A MEMBER OF THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE, I DID HAVE A CHANCE TO JOIN MY COLLEAGUES THAT ARE HERE TODAY TO MARKUP THE BILL LAST WEEK AND LET ME TELL YOU, DEMOCRATS INTRODUCED AMENDMENT AFTER AMENDMENT TO HELP THE MIDDLE CLASS BUT ONE AFTER THE OTHER, REPUBLICANS VOTED DOWN THESE AMENDMENTS IN FAVOR OF TAX CUTS FOR THE CORPORATIONS

THEY INSIST THAT HELPING THE RICH FIRST AND LETTING THOSE BENEFITS TRICKLE DOWN IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP OUR ECONOMY IN FACT, NOT ONLY DO CORPORATE CUTS NOT TRICKLE DOWN TO THE MIDDLE, BUT THESE TAX CUTS ARE BEING PAID FOR BY THE MIDDLE CLASS AND IT MAKES IT HARDER FOR OTHERS TO EVEN GET THERE NOW, I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE BIT FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF EDUCATION I TAUGHT IN THE LOS ANGELES COMMUNITY COLLEGES FOR 20 YEARS

AND I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE MIDDLE CLASS TO HAVE ACCESS TO A HIGHER EDUCATION AND I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS FOR STUDENTS TO AFFORD IT EVEN WHEN WORKING MULTIPLE JOBS AND ONLY ATTENDING SCHOOL PART TIME BUT ACTUALLY UNDER THIS BILL, REPUBLICANS ARE RAISING THE COST OF AN EDUCATION AND PUTTING THAT DREAM OUT OF THE REACH FOR MANY FAMILIES BY ELIMINATING THE DEDUCTION FOR THE INTEREST ON COLLEGE LOANS IF YOU TOOK OUT A LOAN TO EARN A DEGREE, USE THAT DEGREE TO LAND A JOB, AND THEN RESPONSIBLY BUDGET IT SO YOU CAN MAKE PAYMENTS ON THOSE LOANS, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IN YOUR BUDGET WILL HAVE TO GO AND BEAR IN MIND THAT THOSE WHO USE THIS DEDUCTION MAKE UNDER $50,000 A YEAR

THAT'S WHY LAST WEEK I HEARD REPEATEDLY FROM STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY COLLEGE AND GRADUATE STUDENTS WHO ARE TERRIFIED THAT THE RUG WAS BEING PULLED OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THEM ALREADY, THE LOWEST 1% OF AMERICAN HOUSEHOLDS ARE COLLECTIVELY $196 BILLION IN DEBT MANY THANKS IN LARGE PART TO STUDENTS' LOANS MEANWHILE, THE TOP 1% HAS A COLLECTIVE NET WORTH OF MORE THAN $33 TRILLION SO WHO COULD USE THIS DEDUCTION MORE? STUDENTS WILL ALSO SUFFER FROM THIS PLAN LONG BEFORE PAYING FOR COLLEGE

BECAUSE THIS PLAN TARGETS SCHOOL TEACHERS WHO PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR PAPER, PENCILS AND FOR CRAYONS FOR THEIR KIDS THIS BILL WOULD CUT OVER $65 BILLION IN AID FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS BUT FOR WHAT? IN ORDER TO MAKE MULTI-MILLIONAIRES $172 BILLION RICHER IT IS OUTRAGEOUS SO AS REPUBLICANS CONSIDER VOTING FOR THIS BILL THIS WEEK, I ASK THEM TO LOOK AT THESE DEDUCTIONS, LOOK AT WHO WINS AND WHO LOSES, AND THEN TELL ME DOES THIS BILL HELP THE FAMILIES HERE PAY FOR THEIR BILLS AND GET AHEAD OR DOES IT HELP THOSE ALREADY AT THE TOP STAY THERE AT THE EXPENSE OF THE REST OF US

NOW I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE THE AMAZING PRESIDENT AND CEO OF MOMS RISING WHICH NOW HAS A MEMBERSHIP OF OVER 1 MILLION AND THAT'S KRISTEN THINKLINER [ APPLAUSE ] >> FIRST, I'D LIKE TO THANK LEADER PELOSI AND ALL THE CONGRESS WOMEN HERE TODAY FOR STANDING UP FOR WOMEN AND OUR ECONOMY AND FAMILIES [ APPLAUSE ] I'M THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF MOMS RISING WE WORK TO INCREASE FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY, TO DECREASE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN AND MOMS, AND IMPORTANTLY TO BUILD A NATION WHERE BOTH BUSINESSES AND FAMILIES CAN THRIVE

WE'VE BEEN WORKING IN THIS WAY FOR OVER TEN YEARS, SO WE HAVE MORE THAN A DECADE OF EXPERIENCE STANDING UP FOR FAMILIES WE KNOW WHEN POLIIES ARE GOOD FOR FAMILIES AND OUR ECONOMY, AND WE KNOW WHEN POLICIES ARE VERY, VERY BAD THERE'S NO DOUBT THE REPUBLICAN TAX PLANS ARE NO GOOD, VERY BAD, AND HORRIBLE FOR OUR FAMILIES AND ECONOMY WE'VE ALL READ THE BOOK THE NO GOOD VERY BAD DAY THIS IS ONE OF THOSE DAYS

IT WOULD JEOPARDIZE THE HEALTH, FINANCIAL STABILITY, AND THE FUTURE OF MILLIONS OF WORKING FAMILIES ACROSS OUR COUNTRY IF PASSED, IT WOULD DAMAGE OUR ECONOMY IT WOULD ALSO DEVASTATE FAMILIES THAT ARE ALREADY IN OR NEAR POVERTY THIS IS AN EMERGENCY MOMENT IN OUR COUNTRY WE ARE HERE TODAY TO DELIVER A MESSAGE TO EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS THAT IT IS NOT OKAY TO RAISE THE TAXES FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHILE GUTTING ESSENTIAL PROGRAMS THAT BOOST OUR HEALTH CARE, OUR FOOD, OUR NUTRITION, OUR EDUCATION AND OUR ECONOMY

THAT IS NOT SMART POLICY IT'S NOT OKAY TO SOLVE THE FEDERAL BUDGET IN WAYS THAT ARE SURE TO PUT MEDICARE, MEDICAID, HEAD START, SNAP, WICK AND OTHER ESSENTIAL PROGRAMS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK WE KNOW THAT THAT'S NOT SMART POLICY AND IT'S CERTAINLY NOT OKAY TO CUT TAXES FOR WALL STREET AND FOR THE RICHEST 1% OF PEOPLE IN OUR NATION WHILE LEAVING THE REST OF US TO PAY THE BILLS AND LEAVING A LEGACY OF DEBT FOR OUR CHILDREN JUST SO THE RICH CAN LINE THEIR POCKETS TODAY

THAT IS NOT OKAY AND IT'S REALLY, REALLY NOT OKAY TO LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT THIS TAX PLAN WILL DO AS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY WITH THE TAX SCAM WE'VE HAD ENOUGH LIES THE MOMS OF AMERICA KNOW THE TRUTH JUST LIKE THE MOMS OF AMERICA KNOW WHEN OUR CHILDREN ARE HIDING THE GREEN BEANS IN THEIR NAPKINS TO HIDE THEY'RE NOT EATING THEM, MOMS KNOW THE REPUBLICAN TALKING POINTS ON THESE TAX PLANS ARE HIDING THE TRUTH

WE KNOW OUR COUNTRY NEEDS TO INVEST IN OUR HEALTH CARE, IN OUR NUTRITION, IN EARLY EDUCATION, IN EDUCATION OVERALL NEEDS TO BOOST THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THOSE IN NEED NEEDS TO STRENGTHEN AND PRESERVE THE PROGRAMS THAT LIFT OUR MOST VULNERABLE AND TAKE STEPS TO FUEL OUR ECONOMY, NOT DEMOLISH IT THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE TODAY TO DEMAND

AS WE DO THIS, WE'RE HAPPY TO HAVE OUR THREE MOMS RISING FAMILIES WITH US AND I'M SURE THAT THEY EACH REPRESENT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN OUR MEMBERSHIP ACROSS THE COUNTRY, MOMS ACROSS THE NATION WHO ARE FIRED UP, WHO ARE CALLING THEIR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, WHO ARE SHARING THEIR STORIES, SHARING STORIES WITH EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF CONGRESS TODAY MOMS ARE FIGHTING BACK THE MOMS OF AMERICA KNOW THESE TAX PLANS DON'T REFLECT OUR VALUES, DON'T RECOGNIZE OUR CONTRIBUTIONS, AND DON'T FUEL OUR ECONOMY WE ALSO KNOW THAT WE TOGETHER CAN DO BETTER

BECAUSE WHEN MOMS RISE, OUR NATION RISES WHEN WOMEN WIN, AMERICA WINS WE ARE NOT A ZERO SUM GAME COUNTRY ALL OF US DOING WELL TOGETHER ADDS UP TO MAKE THE AMERICAN DREAM POSSIBLE THIS TAX PLAN DESTROYS ACCESS TO THE AMERICAN DREAM

WE KNOW THAT WE ALL DO BETTER WHEN WE ARE ALL DOING BETTER SO TODAY WE DEMAND THAT BOTH THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE REJECT THE REPUBLICAN TAX PLAN, SAY NO TO PRESIDENT TRUMP IMMORAL AND DAMAGING AGENDA, AND INSTEAD PASS A PLAN THAT PRIORITIZES WORKING FAMILIES BY INVESTING IN PROGRAMS THAT HELP REDUCE INCOME INEQUALITY AND BOOST OUR ECONOMY THAT'S WHAT OUR COUNTRY, OUR FAMILIES, OUR MOMS, OUR DADS, AND OUR ECONOMY NEED RIGHT NOW I'M NOW DELIGHTED — >>> WELCOME TO THE FOX 10 "NEWS NOW" STREAM TWO TO FOX10PHOENIX
