11:01 am
>> good afternoon. 2020 candidates taking a break from christmas from the campaign trail today. but expect the race to heat up first thing tomorrow morning. when these candidates move between iowa and new hampshire impeachment is a top that's dominating the news cycle. it has been for weeks here in washington. these white house hopefuls playing close attention to the tension between the house and senate. former vice president joe biden called impeachment a solemn moment for our country this weekend. >> donald trump has brought this on himself. he indicted himself on the white house lawn. he said we were left no choice. >> congresswoman tulsi gabbert is causing a stir after voting present. but a neutral vote. neil is calling on her to step
11:02 am
down. gabbert announced she's not running for reelection. >> one of the candidates stand on pelosi withholding those articles of impeachment? >> that's a big question how long she'll hold onto articles. senators, book klobuchar all expected to be on the campaign trail. michael bloomberg he's pushing for a trial as soon as possible. listen. >> i think they should have a trial. whatever the evidence is, that's what the constitution calls for. i think we deserve nothing less. >> senator cory booker tweeted about a future trial where he would be a juror. this trial demands a thorough review of the evidence. we must be rented with witnesses and documents. if it's in january or february, that's right in the middle of
11:03 am
important campaigning and iowa new hampshire. state of the union is february 4th a day after the iowa caucuses. it's going to be busy with the trial, with the state of the union, lot going on and these people on the campaign trial not taking much time off maybe just today. that's it. >> could be a big advantage for biden and buttigieg and others. we appreciate it. let's bring in now john buffy associate editor from "wall street journal." great to see you. let's talk about this additional impeachment articles that the democrats reportedly not ruling out about president trump. they still need to hear from don mccann. could we see another impeachment in the house? >> it's entirely possible. democrats saying the articles have been written up and approved by the house and they are waiting to be passed on to the senate.
11:04 am
that the investigations haven't stopped. remember that the mueller report had 10 outstanding statements about obstruction by the president. those are still standing. they were not tried. they were not heard in the house. elements of the mcghan will be part of that. what mcghan did on behalf of the president in minds of the house obstructed justice. >> democrats say that mcghan's testimony produces new evidence that president trump committed impeachable offenses. this third article means he obstructing congress. graham said this is proof that dems don't think they can win at the ballot box >> i'm not sure that the
11:05 am
correct. house speaker is blamed not waiting for the judicial process to play through to force witnesses such as mulvaney and bolton to appear before the house before the articles of impeachment were written up and passed on to the senate. the speaker is demanding witnesses be brought before the gnat. remember that the white house said, they can't testify. the house speaker kind of missed an opportunity by letting the courts decide this. what she was concerned about was the delay. she didn't want this dragging into the campaign next year. she wanted some kind of resolution quickly. now the senate saying, we're not going to call any witnesses. the problem there, at the end of the day, the public is wondering can't these witnesses come speak and tell the truth. is there a cover-up. >> mcghan was someone that the democrats originally had wanted to testify early on when it came
11:06 am
to the mueller investigation. the democrats made a decision they would only proceed well two articles of impeachment. meaning they would leave out mueller and focus on ukraine. now they're deciding to bring in mueller in the 11th hour which sort of presents a sign of desperation to some who say that maybe they don't have all their ducks in the row. they do not have enough evidence. that is why nancy pelosi is installing to get enough evidence. how much could this hurt the democrats? >> i think that's the republican argument that's what the democrats are doing. i think the democrats will pond to that saying, this is the process. it takes a while for the courts to make their decision. therefore, it took us a while to come back to this element of obstruction. whether or not the mcghan issue listen presented to the senate as part of the trial. i think it's kind of playing both parts of -- depending on
11:07 am
who you will side with. people chosen their sides already. it looks like it's part of the messy process. certainly it has gotten messy. the democrats are not passing on the articles of impeachment to the senate. gives the republicans to say, they're afraid of stepping forward. >> i want to move ton to republican senator lisa murkowski. she said she was disturbed to hear mitch mcconnell saying there's coordination over the impeachment trial. what do you make of the senate's relationship with the white house impending trial? >> murkowski pointed it out. she's pa moderate. she's somebody mitch mcconnell should be worried about siding with democrats on the procedural aspects of the trial coming forward. this is what mcconnell said. if it's a trial, you would hope that the judge and the jury are
11:08 am
in impartial. they have sided with one side or the other. by saying he's not going to call witnesses by saying he's coordinating with the white house. that's problematic. this is not a trial in the traditional sense of a u.s. courtroom. it's a political process. >> they're not necessarily entitled witnessed at this point. i want to compare between typical criminal trial and impeachment trial in the senate. >> that's correct. schumer saying, why not? why not witnesses? >> john bussey thank you so much. from impeachment to healthcare and education. all major issues for 2020 democrats. what about matters of faith? on this christmas we take a look at how hopefuls are looking to get the religious vote. >> reporter: senator cory
11:09 am
booker, to andrew yang. democratic presidential hopefuls are touching on religious at times invoking verses from the bible. >> i'm offering the presidency you don't have to wake up in the morning and look at the news and think to yourself, whatever happened to i was hungry i you fed me. >> reporter: democrats long tried to court religious voters after evangelicals played a big role in former president george w. bush's reelection. >> democrats looking inward to see how they could appropriately engage and include their own faith and their faith narrative and how to best connect with those individuals of faith. >> reporter: associated poll shows only 37% of democrats feel it's moderately important for a candidate to have strong religious beliefs. as compared with two thirds of republicans. many iowans believe religion can
11:10 am
play a bigger factor in this election cycle. >> religion is significant in in campaign because of trump and what an affront to he is with anyone with a moral value. >> reporter: religion maybe important here in iowa or south carolina where more than 75% of the option practiced some form of christianity. other voters say, what matters more is how candidates manifest their religion in their platform. these are all issues democrats of faith consider. >> reporter: voters, a crucial consideration the country's first caucus only weeks away. fox news. it was nearly 10 years ago former president obama signed the affordable care act into law. with federal courts now questioning its constitutionality, several prominent democrats turning to med for all. state of obamacare is unclear.
11:11 am
lauren, where does the court case against obamacare stand today? >> reporter: well, a federal court upheld the decision by a texas court which found obamacare without the individual mandate is unconstitutional. however, the federal court wants that lower court to figure out how much is severable from that requirement where it requires most people to have insurance. according to the ruling, this can go one of three ways. they can find that none of the healthcare law can be severed without the individual men date. could be that all of it is severable or it could be that some is severable where some not. president trump saying, this decision will not alter the current healthcare system. my administration continues to work to provide access to high quality healthcare at a price you can afford while strongly protecting those with preexisting conditions. obamacare has had its court wins and losses in 2012.
11:12 am
chief justice robert saying it was constitutional. in 2017 a republican tax bill repealed the mandate penalty. the president and republicans tried to chip away at the law even though as right now, there isn't a viable replacement. in those spending bills, president trump signed last week, there was the repeal of three obamacare taxes. the cadillac tax on high cost employer based plan and manuel fee on health insurance providers. the white house calling it a win as president trump has repeatedly called the individual mandate the worst part of the law. >> 2020 democrats are submit on -- split on what the future of obamacare should be. >> reporter: former vice president biden who was there when president obama signed this, he has defended law.
11:13 am
he admits it does need improvements. those in the progressive wing, believe it's time to move to a medicare for all system. >> what we have to do is make clear that the function of healthcare is to provide healthcare to all and not make huge profits for the insurance companies and the drug companies. the best way to do that, the simplest way is through medicare for all single payer program. >> reporter: the white house is doing a victory lap after court ruling. 2020 democrats say it will be short lived. they may not agree, they say it's not what the president has done so far. >> he promised to repeal affordable care act and replace
11:14 am
it with something better. he has never had another plan. he determined to throw americans off the boat without giving them a lifeline. >> reporter: in 2020, we know doubt will see even more healthcare policy proposals out on the campaign trail. now it's up to you to decide who's idea you trust. >> thank you so much. investigators on the hunt for the prime suspect in the killing of an ex-nfl quarterback brother. live report next. ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7 and maintained it. oh! under 7?
