McConnell on 2020: ‘I can’t wait’ to debate Dems on ‘Medicare for None’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News Tuesday he cannot wait to debate health care during the 2020 elections, particularly what he called the “Medicare for None” proposal put forth by many Democratic candidates.

“We’re really happy to have that argument — that debate with the American people in 2020.  I can’t wait to engage on the ‘Medicare for None’ proposal,” McConnell said in an exclusive interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

MCCONNELL: TIME TO PUT THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION TO REST

“It’s not just Bernie Sanders, McConnell added. “There are four other credible colleagues of mine running for president saying they’re signed up for the ‘Medicare for None’ and they’ve also signed up for the Green New Deal. So we’re happy to have that debate.

Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., has a proposed a single-payer health care system with a single government-run plan.

The much-debated Green New Deal contains several controversial policy proposals meant to blunt the impact of climate change and is sponsored by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

McConnell also questioned why Democrats were pushing a new health care overhaul less than a decade after the Obama administration enacted the Affordable Care Act.

“I don’t know why the Democrats are unhappy with Obamacare. They worked on it for a long time and we were unable to replace it,” McConnell said. “It’s there and they’re not even satisfied with the principal accomplishment, they said, of the Obama years?”

MacCallum pressed McConnell on why Republicans didn’t have a health care plan to replace ObamaCare, but the Republican leader deflected his response toward the Democrats.

“If they are willing to admit that there are problems with Obamacare related to the cost, the deductibles, the copayments, we’ll be glad to work with them on that,” said McConnell, who added that Republicans would have problems implementing any health care plan the Senate passes due to the Democratic-controlled House.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN DISMISSES MCCONNELL

McConnell said Republican candidates in 2020 will not just run on the economy, which he said was “about as good as it’s been in 50 years,” but against America becoming “a socialist country.”

“We need to stop America from becoming something it’s never been,” he said. “Things like the Green New Deal and ‘Medicare for None’ will fundamentally change America into something it’s never been before.”

Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion that President Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him as a means of solidifying his base.

“Folks, we thought it was crazy when they fell for Trump asking the Russians to help find Hillary’s emails. These people are so off the rails, they are so devoid of any common sense, and it’s rooted in a lack of a sense of humor, but they have been so discombobulated by Trump that they simply have lost their moorings,” Limbaugh said on his radio show.

LIMBAUGH: BIDEN BEST CHANCE TO BEAT TRUMP BUT HAS NO CHANCE IN THE PRIMARY

Pelosi, D-Calif., said Tuesday during a New York appearance that “Trump is goading us to impeach him.”

She added: “He’s just like taunting, taunting, taunting because he knows that it would be very divisive in the country, but he doesn’t really care. He just wants to solidify his base.”

Limbaugh insisted that “Trump is goading them, Trump is trolling them, Trump is teasing them, and they’re falling for it, and so Pelosi says that her Democrats are helpless, her Democrats cannot resist the trolling of Donald Trump. Donald Trump goads and the Democrats respond. And she’s trying to get her Democrats to react to this by saying: ‘You gotta stop this. This is what Trump wants. He wants us to impeach him.'”

PELOSI FACES MOUNTING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT PRESSURE FROM DEM RANKS AFTER MUELLER REPORT

Limbaugh also dismissed Pelosi’s notion that Trump needs to firm up his base. “Trump’s base is solidified. He doesn’t need you to impeach him for his base to be solid. His base has been solidified since the campaign. And his base is more solid than ever, and it is growing, Madam Pelosi, whether you go through this impeachment rigamarole or not.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in an exclusive interview on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Tuesday, re-emphasized that it’s time to put the Mueller probe to bed at last.

“I think we ought to put it to rest,” he said. “Mueller spent two years on this, he interviewed hundreds of people, he reached the conclusion there was certainly no collusion on. .. the president’s part.

“He brought no charges on obstruction.  They indicted a number of Russians.  It was clear what the Russians are trying to do.  He pointed it out to us.  What else do we need to know?  It’s time to move on.”

Earlier Tuesday, McConnell said in a Senate-floor speech that the probe was a classic instance of “case closed.”

Since Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was released, Democrats and Republicans have sparred over how the document was provided, what Mueller did or didn’t find, how Attorney General William Barr summarized the conclusions and more.

Democrats have called on Barr to resign and Mueller to testify, while Republicans have defended Barr as honorable.

For his part, President Trump has urged Mueller not to testify.

BRET BAIER REACTING TO MCCONNELL: CASE NOT CLOSED

McConnell, responding to a question about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s accusations that Barr lied to Congress, defended Barr and accused Democrats of suffering from so-called “Trump derangement syndrome.”

“That’s an outrageous assertion.  The man had a brief summary of the report, released all the report that was legally allowed to be released.  Put it on the Internet.  To call a public servant like the attorney general a liar is completely over the top,” McConnell said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a different view: “He lied to Congress.” the California Democrat said last week. “If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law, not the president of the United States and not the attorney general.”

McConnell called on both parties to move on and see what they might accomplish “together.”

“Why don’t we turn our attention to try and see what we can figure out and what we can do together for the American people and not squander any more time?” McConnell said.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Judith Miller reacted Tuesday to 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker’s plan to implement a federal buyback program for certain types of firearms.

“Cory Booker’s campaign is in trouble,” Miller said. “He’s looking for areas in which he can distinguish himself.”

Booker, D-N.J., told CNN that there should be a law banning certain weapons and a “reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons.”

CORY BOOKER WANTS TO REQUIRE FEDERAL LICENSE FOR GUN OWNERS

The senator said that America wrongly allows “weapons of war” to be present “in streets and communities” like his own home base, Newark, N.J.

“I do think that to hold Cory Booker up as an example of the left wing of the party is a little bit unfair to this field of 22,” Miller said.

Miller said that the Democratic Party and many other Americans “are in favor of sensible gun control restrictions.”

Salem Media host Kevin McCullough agreed with Miller, adding that background checks and three-day waiting periods at gun shows are examples of such restrictions that currently exist.

Booker also recently called for a federal licensing requirement for gun owners.

He compared the potential gun license to a driver’s license, which is issued after an applicant demonstrates the proficiency to drive a vehicle.

Under the proposal, applications would be submitted at a designated office similar to the process of obtaining a passport, and the FBI would then verify the licensee’s request.

CORY BOOKER DECLARES 2020 BID: 5 THINGS ABOUT THE NEW JERSEY DEMOCRAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW

“I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action,” Booker said in a statement.

Miller and McCullough cited Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., as another 2020 presidential hopeful calling for a federal gun buyback program.

Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., called for Democrats to “stop obstructing” on solutions to the security and humanitarian issues on the U.S.-Mexico border as she appeared on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on Tuesday.

“This should be a unifying issue. Border security used to be unifying,” McSally told Cavuto.

RETIRED ICE DIRECTOR: STOP RELYING ON CONGRESS

“This is not a game in Arizona. It’s a public safety issue, it’s a national security issue. And everybody knows when I’m out and about in my state that we’ve got to fix the border, we’ve got to secure it and we’ve got to fix our immigration system. So I just ask my colleagues, let’s come to the table and let’s work on this together so that we can solve it for the American people.”

McSally was part of a group of Republican senators who visited the White House on Tuesday to discuss immigration and a developing plan to be released by the Trump administration.

Recent Border Patrol numbers show that more than 103,000 individuals were processed this March on the southern border and of those individuals 92,000 were apprehended between ports of entry.

The Arizona senator also voiced her support for giving President Trump the $4.5 billion in emergency funds he requested to secure the border.

“I support the emergency funding because of the crisis. We have to push that through as well, this is a meeting where we talked about ideas to revamp our legal immigration system and secure our border, build the partnerships with the executive branch and the legislative branch so we can set this legislation up for success to solve these really pressing problems,” McSally said.

Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier said on “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” on Tuesday that “House Democrats don’t believe the case is closed,” a reaction to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s declaration concerning the completion of  Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian meddling report.

McConnell asserted that the case was indeed wrapped up in a scorching floor speech on Tuesday, accusing Democrats of rooting for a “national crisis” for political gain as he appealed to lawmakers to move on from the Russia controversy.

“Case closed,” McConnell, R-Ky., declared. “Case closed.”

Coming as Democrats clash with Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the report, McConnell suggested the political debate has shifted from the real problem of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

MCCONNELL RAILS AGAINST MUELLER REPORT POLITICS IN BLISTERING FLOOR SPEECH: ‘CASE CLOSED’

“Many Americans were waiting to see how their elected officials would respond,” McConnell said. “With an exhaustive investigation complete, would the country finally unify to confront the real challenges before us? Would we finally be able to move on from partisan paralysis and breathless conspiracy theorizing? Or would we remain consumed by unhinged partisanship, and keep dividing ourselves to the point that Putin and his agents need only stand on the sidelines and watch as their job is done for them?”

McConnell said, “Regrettably, I think the answer is obvious.”

Meantime, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she believes President Trump is “goading” House Democrats to impeach him because he thinks it could help him politically.

In an event sponsored by Cornell University in New York City. she said: “That’s what he’s doing. Every single day, he’s just like, taunting, taunting and taunting because he knows that it would be very divisive in the country, but he doesn’t really care; he just wants to solidify his base.”

Baier said “it’s really the base of her party that is largely for impeachment if you look at the polls.”

PELOSI FACES MOUNTING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT PRESSURE FROM DEM RANKS AFTER MUELLER REPORT

According to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, seven in 10 Democrats want impeachment hearings to begin now that Mueller’s redacted Russia report is public, but just 39 percent of Americans overall are in favor of impeachment hearings.

The results come as Democratic Party leaders and 2020 presidential candidates grapple with the issue.

Before Mueller released his report on the Russia investigation, Pelosi stated her opposition to launching impeachment proceedings against Trump, calling it “divisive” and “just not worth it.” But Pelosi is now facing mounting pressure from those inside her party who say the report’s details concerning alleged obstruction of justice lay the groundwork for impeachment proceedings.

“If you look at any numbers that ask this question on the Democratic side,” Baier said, “it’s pretty significant. And I think Mitch McConnell, his line the case was closed, the House Democrats don’t believe the case is closed, especially on obstruction, but the attorney general has made the case closed on that front legally.”

Minority leader questions Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s ability to be panel chairman

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday that he is beginning to doubt whether Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler is qualified to hold his position.

“If you look at what Nadler’s actions have been, you question even his ability to be a chairman,” said McCarthy, R-Calif.

HOUSE JUDICIARY SCHEDULES VOTE TO HOLD BARR IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS

McCarthy said that at the beginning of each Congress, committees adopt rules to be followed for the next two years.

He said that Nadler, D-N.Y., tried to “change the rules” midsession with his recent intention to let committee members use staff lawyers to question Attorney General William Barr.

Barr boycotted the Thursday hearing, which led Nadler to rip President Trump, and Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., to present a bucket of KFC to illustrate his characterization of Barr as “chicken.”

“He’s also failing in the most basic motions of being a chairman,” McCarthy added of Nadler.

McCarthy said the Manhattan lawmaker is effectively asking Barr to “break the law” by demanding he hand over documents relating to the Mueller Russia probe that are under the executive branch’s purview.

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS THE LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’

On Monday, after Barr missed a committee-imposed deadline to turn over the full, unredacted report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Nadler scheduled a Wednesday vote on whether to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress.

“Even in redacted form, the special counsel’s report offers disturbing evidence and analysis that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice at the highest levels. Congress must see the full report and underlying evidence to determine how to best move forward with oversight, legislation and other constitutional responsibilities,” Nadler said in a statement.

“The attorney general’s failure to comply with our subpoena, after extensive accommodation efforts, leaves us no choice but to initiate contempt proceedings in order to enforce the subpoena and access the full, unredacted report. If the department presents us with a good-faith offer for access to the full report and the underlying evidence, I reserve the right to postpone these proceedings,” he added.

“He’s also failing in the most basic motions of being a chairman,” McCarthy added of Nadler.

McCarthy said the Manhattan lawmaker is effectively asking Barr to “break the law” by demanding he hand over documents relating to the Mueller Russia probe that are under the executive branch’s purview.

IMPRISONING BILL BARR IS THE LEFT’S NEW RALLYING CRY: ‘HAVE HIM LOCKED UP’

On Monday, after Barr missed a committee-imposed deadline to turn over the full, unredacted report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Nadler scheduled a Wednesday vote on whether to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress.

“Even in redacted form, the special counsel’s report offers disturbing evidence and analysis that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice at the highest levels. Congress must see the full report and underlying evidence to determine how to best move forward with oversight, legislation and other constitutional responsibilities,” Nadler said in a statement.

“The attorney general’s failure to comply with our subpoena, after extensive accommodation efforts, leaves us no choice but to initiate contempt proceedings in order to enforce the subpoena and access the full, unredacted report. If the department presents us with a good-faith offer for access to the full report and the underlying evidence, I reserve the right to postpone these proceedings,” he added.

Donna Brazile: Liberal attacks on Joe Biden are ‘going to backfire’

Former interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile, a Fox News contributor, said on “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday that liberal attacks on presidential candidate Joe Biden are “going to backfire.”

Brazile made the comment the same day a new survey found the former vice president and Democratic frontrunner even further ahead of the pack.

Biden received 39 percent of the vote, way ahead of second-place Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at 15.5 percent, according to a RealClearPolitics Poll for the period between April 11 and May 5.

BIDEN MISTAKENLY CLAIMS MARGARET THATCHER, WHO DIED IN 2013, IS WORRIED ABOUT TRUMP

In an attempt to curtail Biden’s rise in the polls, progressives have been arguing that he’s too conservative to be the party’s presidential nominee.

The criticism has come from liberal groups as well as Biden’s rivals on the campaign trail.

“Joe voted for the war in Iraq, I led the effort against it,” Sanders said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

He added, “I think if you look at Joe’s record and you look at my record, I don’t think there’s much question about who’s more progressive.”

“Joe Biden is one of those candidates that people know, they respect him, they know his record of leadership,” said Brazile on Tuesday,  responding to the criticism.

“And while there are many progressives in the race, Joe Biden is someone that has not just good values, but he’s somebody who can speak to progressives as well as moderates and conservatives in our party.”

BIDEN LABELS TRUMP A ‘CLOWN’ DURING CAMPAIGN STOP IN SOUTH CAROLINA

When asked if she’s saying Sanders should back off, Brazile answered, “I’m saying it didn’t work in 2016 with an establishment candidate called Hillary Clinton. She received four million more votes.”

“I’m just saying that perhaps the best way to win, if you’re not Joe Biden, is to go out there and to talk about your record of leadership, talk about the things that you hope to do to help the American people. But to attack Joe Biden simply for being Joe Biden, that’s not going to work.”

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told “America’s Newsroom” earlier Tuesday that she thinks Biden is “a temporary frontrunner.”

“He has gotten a bounce because of name ID, because he just launched his campaign,” said McDaniel.

“Obviously he’s well-known around the country. He has not faced any tough questions and he certainly hasn’t hit that debate stage with those other 20 candidates.”

Brazile said in response, “I’ve been around the block a time or two and let me tell you something, Joe Biden has also been around the track a time or two.”

“All I’m saying is that Joe Biden is a strong candidate but this is not a cakewalk. He’s going to face a lot of competition and you have some people like (California Sen.) Kamala Harris and of course (Massachusetts Sen.) Elizabeth Warren and others that believe that the party should go in a different direction. So I’m looking forward to the debates as well.”

Kellyanne Conway: Democrats ‘have to stop pretending that they want to reform our immigration laws’

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway talked about a “big immigration package,” addressed President Trump’s opinion on Special Counsel Robert Mueller potentially testifying before Congress and responded to some backlash over Tiger Woods‘ acceptance of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Regarding immigration, Conway said on Tuesday, “Jared Kushner and others have been working assiduously for quite a while now on a big immigration package.”

Conway made the statement hours before a group of Republican senators are expected to meet with President Trump to discuss the forthcoming immigration plan from the White House.

“Obviously border security is top of mind for this president,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

“I took note, great note, that since January, Democrats are now 17 points more likely to refer to what’s happening at the southern border as a quote ‘crisis.’ Remember that it was in January that Schumer and Pelosi went on primetime television following the president’s oval office address and said this is a manufactured crisis. People in their own party now increasingly think that they believe what they see. That we have a true crisis.”

“So border security, top of mind, but also the president will be considering a merit-based immigration system,” Conway said.

She added, “The president put together a 70-point plan and submitted it to Congress in October of 2017. So anybody who seems surprised that this president wants to end the visa lottery system, end chain migration, have a merit-based immigration system, deal with (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ) DACA as he can and certainly continue to secure our southern border.”

Conway added that relief for immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children “could be” on the table, adding that she doesn’t “want to get ahead of it, but it could be. We’ll see.”

She added that Democrats “have to stop pretending that they want to reform our immigration laws.”

THE FAMILY CIRCLE OF SEPARATION: WHAT ARE THE LAWS ON MINORS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING AT THE BORDER?

The Trump administration has pointed to a 20-year-old court agreement known as the Flores Settlement and a 10-year-old human trafficking law, called the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, or the TVPRA, to explain the current climate.

President George W. Bush signed the TVPRA, into law in 2008. It seeks to combat child trafficking at the border. The law says that unaccompanied minors who are not from Mexico or Canada are “exempt from prompt return to their home country.” Under this legislation, minors from Central American countries are covered.

The Trump administration has tried to amend TVPRA on the grounds that not all unaccompanied minors are victims of human trafficking. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) calls the law a “loophole” that “invites more illegal immigration” and “creates recruiting opportunities for gangs.” The administration believes TVPRA should be amended so that children who are not victims of trafficking can be returned home regardless of national origin.

MUELLER TESTIMONY BEFORE HOUSE COMMITTEE TENTATIVELY SET FOR MAY 15, DEM REP SAYS 

“Right now we have a couple of judges across this country in charge of the nation’s immigration laws. That just can’t be. We’re all co-equal branches of government,” Conway said on Tuesday.

“And if you’ve got a few judges out there giving us things like the Flores decision and Congress refuses to fix Flores. They refuse to fix TVPRA which is allowing so many of these kids just to be smuggled and recycled.”

The Department of Homeland Security has also warned of “child recycling,” cases where they say children allowed into the U.S. were smuggled back into Central America to be paired up again with other adults in fake families — something they say is impossible to catch without fingerprints or other biometric data.

“That has to stop and Congress can change that by just tweaking, fixing the TVPRA or just fixing the Flores decision,” Conway said adding that Democrats “refuse to act.”
