parameters of impeachment inquiries, and it's not an impeachment resolution, what is it? will the pokey of republicans the right to subpoena witnesses and documents will they maintain the status quo and give the minority no additional access. welcome to fox news at night. we have fox team coverage. brit hume with reaction to the abu bakr al-baghdadi rate and the latest impeachment news. we start with mark meredith for more on the democrats plans to vote on a resolution that will only affirm what they are already doing. >> reporter: nancy pelosi says lawmakers will vote on a resolution to formalize the next steps of impeachment inquiry. this is not a vote on the actual articles of impeachment. democrats say it is meant to send a message to the trump administration.
12:02 am
house speaker nancy pelosi defending her decision to hold a vote formalizing the impeachment inquiry process. in a letter to lawmakers she explains why she favors a vote after refusing to hold one two weeks ago writing, quote, we are taking the step to eliminating any doubt whether trump administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas or continue obstructing the house of representatives. the white house is long accused democrats of running a secret and improper investigation. steve scalise is this week's vote will do little to legitimate is the inquiry. >> what adam schiff has been doing in secret the last few weeks is a very tainted process
12:03 am
that is soviet style justice. >> the text of the resolution has yet to be released but sources say it is expected to reach the house floor by thursday. late tonight fox news caught up with lawmakers from both parties who solicits too soon to say how they will vote. >> when you look at the resolution, i will look at the legislation and tell you what i think. >> on monday some democrats were fuming after national security adviser charles government skipped a meeting with lawmakers, filing a lawsuit asking a judge to decide if he had to comply with the congressional subpoena to appear. >> we are not willing to allow the white house to engage us in a lengthy game of rope a dope in the courts. >> democrats are focused on impeachment, william barr said criminal investigation into the origins of the russia probe led by john durham remains ongoing. >> he thorough and fair and i'm confident he will get to the bottom of this. >> tomorrow lawmakers will hear from a ukrainian expert on the national security council who is expected to tell lawmakers he has serious concerns about
12:04 am
donald trump's call with ukrainians leader and was worried the conversation could undermine us national security. that will happen tomorrow. >> donald trump celebrating the work of us special forces saying the mission is long overdue and that abu bakr al-baghdadi should have been killed years ago and the president should have gotten him. jillian turner sifting through what we are learning about the raid tonight. >> intelligence analysts are pouring over what is a treasure trove of new information, special operations forces scored during the raid that killed isis leader abu bakr al-baghdadi. all eyes on the we found electronic data, documents and even video recordings during the raid itself, the chairman of the joint chiefs says all of this will be crucial to future missions. >> there was material taken away.
12:05 am
i don't want to characterize what or how much until it gets exploited properly. >> sources say exploiting that material could yield priceless information about isis's plans for future attacks but leadership any under number of baghdadi's excesses. whoever takes the reins after baghdadi will be trained by terrorist mastermind. >> he took 20 people and beheaded them. he poured gasoline on a captured jordanian pilot a cage in northern iraq. also the guy that killed thousands of people by beheading them. >> reporter: donald trump taking a jab is at his predecessor says reality is the search for baghdadi took way too long. >> he should have been killed years ago. another president should have gotten him.
12:06 am
>> fox news has learned the raid was months in the making it involved significant intelligence from kurdish allies in syria including one rare informant at the heart of isis but now fresh on the heels of a counterterrorism success for the history books the president's already facing criticism from democrats who say he should have notified the gang of 8 before green lighting the raid. >> talking about why didn't i give the information to adam schiff and his committee and the answer is i think adam schiff is the biggest leader in washington. >> joe biden says the more details emerge about the raid the clearer it is credit for the victory doesn't go to the president saying that happened despite his ineptitude as commander-in-chief. breaking tonight fox news confirms out baghdadi's number 2, isis's spokesperson, was also killed over the weekend in a nearby but separate us operation. >> hours after the world's most notorious terrorist was killed in us special forces raid a washington post headline emphasizes not abu bakr al-baghdadi african is a terrace but his strict adherence to islam.
12:07 am
>> the fact that a national newspaper would describe this person as an austere scholar in their headline, in the immediate aftermath of the achievement of donald trump and the administration is truly appalling biden. >> for the latest impeachment news we bring in the senior political analyst brit hume, good to have you. let's follow up on that. the president has taken heat from the left because he didn't inform democrats in advance of the mission. here's what he said and democratic reaction as well. >> the only thing is they were talking about why didn't i give the information to adam schiff and his committee and the answer is i think adam schiff is the biggest weaker in washington. >> it is absurd to think they would have leak something a strategic, as crucial as this was as relates to the brave men and women of the united states military.
12:08 am
>> what you make of equity? >> in retrospect he could safely have given that information to the gang of 8, the leadership in the intelligence community of both houses, but the fact that they didn't doesn't make any real difference when you think about it. they learned about it today later. suspicions that adam schiff is a bigger are well-founded so i think this is one of those things that -- >> focus on that by the left rather than the accomplishment of the mission of getting this guy that everybody, this was a bad dude -- joe pointed out in a tweet joe biden said this, we saw a statement, more details of the raid emerge it is clear the victory was not due to donald trump's leadership, it happened
12:09 am
despite his ineptitude as commander-in-chief, he goes on to note isis expanded rapidly during obama -- >> this sounds like what trump said when obama was claiming credit for the killing of bin laden. he said belongs to the us military. i don't think it's fair to say, no way of knowing whether this was done despite donald trump's leadership of the military. donald trump had to give the order that it was okay to try. certainly get some credit for this. joe biden says he will reduce that very much. >> this idea that they're working on a resolution to put this thing on the floor to a vote. this is what nancy pelosi said in a letter to fellow democratic colleagues in the house. we will bring a resolution to the floor that affirms the ongoing existing investigation currently being conducted.
12:10 am
we are taking the step to eliminating any doubt as to whether the trump administration may continue obstructing the house of representatives with the whole that is as we don't have to do this. they are doing it because it won't have an excuse to head over witnesses. >> maybe it will strengthen their hand in court proceedings in some way but the baseline question is whether as a matter of law the house is required in order to use subpoenas and before for 7 impeachment inquiry without having taken a full house vote on starting the whole thing, this is a vote to authorize the next steps, the house never started in the first place, not sure what difference it will make but it is a matter of law. they can conduct this impeachment inquiry anyway they want. the relevant question, two important political questions because in the end it is a political matter. one is whether this sort of non-vote to authorize the inquiry will be sufficient to allow house democrats who don't want to have to vote at this
12:11 am
stage to authorize impeachment to escape responsibility for this. the second question and ultimate question is what about the senate. how is this playing over the senate where a trial will be held and where two thirds of the place would have to vote to convict him which means the president could lose up to 19 republican senators in the senate and still survive in office. from what we know from republicans now have not been impressed with the way this thing is being conducted in the house i don't think this will help very much on that score. republicans in the senate will object to this will continue to do so. shannon: a key witness did not show up today.
12:12 am
>> i think we can infer from white house opposition to doctor opperman's testimony that they believe his testimony would be incriminating to the president. >> if you don't show up it is intimidating for the president and bolsters the case of obstruction. >> he also said no one can sue the congress, no private citizen consumer congress to avoid a subpoena. that is nonsense. anybody can sue anybody, doesn't mean they will get far with it. adam schiff's credibility is pretty threadbare. he made these grandiose statements during the russia inquiry about all this evidence he had. we never saw it into in the end it is exhaustive and did not find it either. the man has a tendency to talk through his hat. to simply say we can infer knowledge out of this is something that should be taken with a large grain if not a block of salt. shannon: thank you for being with us. the family of a worker and isis
12:13 am
prisoner kayla mueller is praising donald trump and the soldiers who pulled off the raid the killed isis leader abu bakr al-baghdadi, some harsh words for former president barack obama, telling the republic, quote, i say kayla should be here and if obama had been as decisive as donald trump maybe she would be. toyota, kia and general motors back in the trump administration is his ongoing battle with california over who gets to mandate fuel economy standards. other lawmakers, honda, volkswagen, ford, and bmw previously agreed with california to manufacture cars with higher fuel efficiency. to missouri the state of the only abortion clinic in missouri is under consideration was a member of the state's administered hearing commission over proceedings today over whether the clinic keep its abortion license after being cited for numerous healthcare violations, not expected until february of next year. the state has refused to renew

>> reporter: after years of intelligence gathering, building sources and developing a precise strategy of attack us forces finally got the break they were looking for. >> intelligence from numerous organizations throughout the department of defense and across the interagency identified the location four miles from the turkish border. >> reporter: once the white house learned there was a high profile that abu bakr al-baghdadi would be in that compound, it set off 48 hours of planning that would culminate in a daring and dangerous raid but on friday with the clock ticking the president held his parts close even heading to camp david to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary of his daughter ivanka and son-in-law jared kushner. saturday appeared normal as well, donald trump played golf with major league baseball commissioner rob manforward along with lindsey graham and david perdue and 4:18 saturday afternoon the president got back to the white house with 45 minutes, he was in a suit,
12:20 am
seated in the situation room monitoring the raid with new york times imagery and after the white house team was in place a group of ch 48 helicopters took off from western iraq. >> us forces were infiltrated by helicopter and the objective, secure the target compound. >> a local butcher told the associated press this i helicopters will blow on the horizon saying we went out on the balcony to see and they started shooting with automatic rifles so we went inside and hid. next the villagers heard a large explosion, donald trump explained it as soldiers blasting a whole in the side of the building because they fear the engines might be booby-trapped. authorities believe at that point baghdadi fled into a network of underground tunnels. >> the assault force was engage with small arms fire and the threats were eliminated. our forces isolated the compound and protected the noncombatants.
12:21 am
clearing the objective, us forces discovered abu bakr al-baghdadi hiding it as well, the assault force closed in and he detonated a suicide vest. >> the chairman of the joint chiefs says abu bakr al-baghdadi drag 3 children with them. the terror chief went whimpering, crying and screaming all the way to his death. >> he reached the end of the tunnel as our dogs chased him down. he ignited his vest, killing himself and the three children. >> reporter: we are told abu bakr al-baghdadi's remains were taken to a secure facility to confirm his identity before the dna testing. the instant forensic analysis is a dramatic demonstration of new capabilities special forces possess but the white house says the combination of visual evidence and dna tests confirmed abu bakr al-baghdadi's identity. >> is remains in accordance with
12:22 am
the law of armed conflict. >> reporter: islamic rituals were followed before abu bakr al-baghdadi's body was buried at the scene much like usama bin laden. shannon: thank you. isis supporters say the group is wasting no time closing ranks. former cia director james woolsey and former deputy under secretary lieutenant general jerry boycan both join us to discuss. approach isis telegram channel says with the impure crusaders do not understand with regard to the muslim create especially that of the jihadist fighters is jihad in its entirety is not founded on men but creed. the islamic state shall remain, it shall disturb the lives of the infidels and punish the apostate. where does this put us in the fight against isis? >> this was a great operation
12:23 am
that was precise. it had very little collateral damage and took out the most wanted man in the world. this sends a strong message to the next leader of isis or al qaeda that you may be next. this is not a position you should be looking forward to because we are going to come after you. we will find you. the intelligence community's efforts here probably took years, not just months. probably years they've been after this guy trying to find him and found him, pinpointed into the point that you could take the risk of launching an operation. i think this sends a strong message to the terror network. they are not going to die, they are going to come back but this is a good message based on the fact we took out their leader. >> the president spoke to the american people to talk about what had been accomplished and they were immediately critics
12:24 am
over what he had to share. some in the media say the president got this all wrong when talking about it. >> it is unprecedented when you think about how much detail he actually went into. it is irresponsible. >> he sounded not like a president of the united states. he sounded like saddam hussein after torturing people, sounds like mom are qaddafi after he would torture people. >> ahead of releasing details, explicit details some of which sort of echoed the crudeness you would expect to hear from isis. >> what do you make of those critiques? >> i think they are ridiculous. they started from the proposition that they want to get rid of the president and they didn't want to wait for an election. and they use every opportunity to come forward with things like
12:25 am
that, not just substantive critiques. there were a lot of us who weres move on syria a couple weeks ago because it left the kurds unprotected in part of their deployments and they are our best friends and best colleagues and fighters so it is not as if one has to sign on to everything the president says or does but this was a brilliant move he pulled off and the critiques of it were just ridiculous, almost a satire of themselves. shannon: saturday night live pattern isis get going on this weekend apparently as this was playing out had played out in the president was going to announce sunday morning, started to get some trickle saturday night of the breaking news, this is a skip they were running. >> where you from? >> isis. >> i was a prisoner until you
12:26 am
freed me. i just want to say thank you for bringing jobs back. to isis. i promise that i will make isis great again. >> terrific, what a great guy. isis is back in a big way and we love that, don't we? >> i could never have imagined the timing of what was going on. >> these guys are clowns. that's all they are, they are clowns. this president gave the order and provided our military with everything they needed to pull off probably the most precise operation i have ever known of and i spent 13 years in that unit and i will tell you this is the most precise operation, the seals did a great job in 2011, a great job in a different situation but this was the most precise operation i have ever seen and it was because our
12:27 am
president got down into the details in terms of which course of action he was going to accept and instruct them to launch and i think he should be credited with this but you can't expect that to happen because they are never going to give him credit for anything he has done his commander-in-chief. >> i would like to hear the president in light of his disagreements in the past with the intelligence community, i would like to hear him say something positive about particularly the cia because this was human intelligence under extraordinarily difficult circumstances, trying to penetrate a terrorist group that is deployed along the turkish border, how in the world do you do that with that kind of precision, to make sure you are not dealing with someone who wants to be a double agent etc.. i just really take my hat off to
12:28 am
the cia, human intelligence people in, i'm sure there are people from other agencies involved too but the cia pulled the strings on human intelligence collection and it was brilliant. >> we can never move ahead without every single piece of that puzzle to get intel. operators willing to go in and thousands of other people, those who helped track the person, people who were brave enough to get inside. >> the hard work is done by the intelligence community particularly the cia. shannon: thank you for being here tonight. breaking news from the front lines of wildfires ravaging california, we will take you there live. there's a power in listening;
