7:31 am
in spain showing you moment of silence that was held one hour ago. spain's king and prime minister joining thousands in barcelona main square to honor victims. sadly the number of victims has risen to 14. woman died in secondary attack a car attack at a seaside town about 60 miles south of barcelona earlier this morning. in barcelona 13 people were killed yesterday when that van attack. a third suspect arrested overnight but the driver of that van remains at large. let's turn back on our focus on the president right now and his response to charlottesville and massive backlash he continues to receive. >> support of the president's eroding among the gop. senator bob corkery yesterday calling for radical changes at the white house saying "the president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful" senator tim scott telling vice news that president trump's moral authority has been compromised. let's talk more about this with dr. alan
7:32 am
scholar and distinguished professor of history at american university. thank you for joining us. you've been here before. >> i have. >> more or less predict wagon we're seeing now. the president's approval rating low. now, the new poll coming out talking about people who want him impeached at 40%. what do you make of this? >> remember, i wrote the book the case for impeachment. my book came out in april. and i pointed out eight vulnerabilities of this president with respect to impeachment, and somehow he seems that he's convinced he wants to make me right. look, you can't necessarily be impeached strictly because of his response to charlottesville. but it sets the context for impeachment. it weakens him within his own party and weakens him with the public. you can draw a moral equivalency between nazis and kkk and those who are protesting fashion shim. you can't say the
7:33 am
fine people shouting slogans like jews will not replace us or the nazis slogan of blood and soil. can you imagine any other president in this predicament? you can't. >> i want to come back to the impeachment we want to talk about what that would take. it's a long and lengthy process. >> yes. >> and if he actually is crossed any of those lines. i want to come back to that in a minute. i want to talk about the working relationship when it comes to other reps. we heard from bob cork kerr thought he would be a vice-presidential candidate. >> yes. >> we're hearing more and more speak out. two fold here. the reason why i ask. one, the president has not obviously not been impeached none of that process has started he's the president of the united states he has to work with people in congress. so what damage is he doing with other republicans by calling them out publicly second of all if it does been impeachment process you have people on the senate judiciary committee he has called out publicly. what does that do then to the chances of pushing through that impeachment? >> you know, you don't attack people who you need. he should know that as a
7:34 am
the republicans have 52 sen senators. they have no votes to spare on priorities like infrastructure and tax cuts. and when it comes to impea impeachment. that actually starts in the house. in the house judiciary comm committee. it would only take 24 or so republican members of the house to go over to the democrats to get a majority to start an impeachment queer. that's just 10% of house republicans. >> and yet the president attacks members of his own party we don't see them coming back and slamming him hard. maybe privately they are slamming him, but publicly they certainly are not taking that route which says to me what will it take for these gop congressional members to finally start peeling away from this president despite the words he spoken, dose despite his jacks they're still visibly with him at least from camera standpoint. >> i'll apply an old saying when it comes to trump and the republicans. can't live with him, can't live
7:35 am
that's the dilemma they face. they don't like living with him because he's bringing down the whole party. on the other hand, if they really go after him, they're afraid they're going to lose that trump base which is search to republicans. they can have primary challenges. the trump base might not come out in general elections. had they will turn against hell, though, is pretty clear. the first requisite of any office holder is survival and if they believe living with him is more threatening to their survival, than living without him, that's when you'll see the turn. >> it seems like that might be the direction that things are going right now the latest example is a poll that came out where they -- if you look. i'm just talking about trump hard core base i'm talking about republicans who were polled agreeing with the president's statement about charlottesville about equal blame that should be shared a comment vol will he tide bite media. a loft republican lawmakers have spoken against. but vast majority of
7:36 am
polled agree with that. does that tell in you these members of congress' jurisdictions people are saying we're going with the president? get on board. >> at least the republicans. but i got to tell you, there are 20 to 30 members of the house who are republicans who are in vulnerable districts and can't simply count on the republican vote. they're going to need independence to come around for them, and independence right now do not share the reviews of those republicans. plus, you know, how many times can you slam into a structure before you start knocking it down? >> yeah it hasn't shattered yet. but, boy, trump seems to be doing everything in his power to sing his own presidency. >> has he done anything yet to warrant impeachment? >> i think so, yes. i think there's now a stronger case on obstruction of justice against donald trump than there was against bill clinton on a vastly more important matter, foreign i
7:37 am
democracy and our freedoms. in bill clinton's case he was, what, covering up a private affair. there certainly are grounds for impeachment queer there and violation of the a monuments clause f you're president you can't take anything of value from foreign governments or their agents without explicit authorization from congress and who knows what might be uncovered in the mueller investigation on russia. so plenty of grounds for an investigation. remember, the mueller investigation is not an impeachment investigation. it's a criminal investigation. and the two are different in water gate you had both an impeachment investigation and a special prosecutor. >> professor alan lichtman we'll have to leave it there your book is called the case for impeach many. fascinating times we're living in. we'll have you back again. >> thank you. >> in the meantime send it back out to tucker barnes on our zip trip in gator bug. good morning, tucker. >> hey, maureen, steve, they told me to help myself i'm here at crown wine and beer, and we're going to be talking all things b
