Charles Hurt calls Medicare, Social Security a ‘slow-rolling catastrophe’

The troubling financial situation of Social Security and Medicare represented a “slow-rolling catastrophe,” Fox News contributor Charles Hurt said Tuesday.

“The fact remains that they’re going insolvent and something has to be done about it,” Hurt said on “Special Report”.

His comments came in light of a report in which trustees warned the programs were headed for insolvency.

In 2020, the report said, Social Security’s total costs will exceed its total income for the first time in nearly four decades., and in seven years, Medicare’s hospital trust fund will be depleted.

More progressive lawmakers, including Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have proposed expanding Medicare to create a single-payer health care system. According to Hurt, that would only make matters worse by further centralizing power in the hands of bureaucrats.

MEDICARE CHIEF SAYS ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL’ IS ‘BIGGEST THREAT TO AMERICAN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM’

“Unfortunately, the idea of ‘Medicare for All’ — on top of the problems that we’re facing right now — is kind of the typical government answer: more centralized governance from Washington. That’s the whole problem in the first place,” he said.

“Massively” expanding Medicare, he added, wouldn’t fix the program. “It’s going to break it,” he said.

Jonah Goldberg, a senior editor at National Review, argued that while President Trump’s administration ignored the bleak future of Medicare and Social Security, Democrats proposed policies that would worsen the situation.

“We’re having a massive wealth transfer from young people to old people,” Goldberg said. “It’s not sustainable, it’s got to be ripped up from the ground up.”

Although Hurt acknowledged the situation looked bad, he also predicted that the country’s strong economic situation made it easier for the government to reform those costly programs. “It’s going to be a lot easier to fix these programs with a good economy like the one we have right now,” he said.

Watters on felons voting: Dems want to ‘change the rules’ rather than ‘change their message’

Westlake Legal Group watters Watters on felons voting: Dems want to 'change the rules' rather than 'change their message' Sam Dorman fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc article 7e59c1dd-f144-59c9-95aa-fb1b7f4d4a75

Jesse Watters, co-host of “The Five,” suggested Tuesday that Democrats wanted to grant felons voting rights so they could “change the rules” in American elections.

“The reason they’re doing this … is because they can’t persuade enough actual voters about their ideas so they have to create new voters,” he said on “The Five.” “They got rocked in 2016 so instead of trying to change their message, they’re just trying to change the rules.”

Watters likened that proposal to Democratic pushes to abolish the electoral college and add justices to the Supreme Court.

Co-host Juan Williams responded by noting that Democrats won the popular vote in 2016. “Democrats got more votes than Republicans in 2016.” “All of them were felons,” co-host Greg Gutfeld joked in response.

MEGHAN MCCAIN AND WHOOPI GOLDBERG CLASH OVER VOTING RIGHTS FOR BOSTON BOMBER: ‘HE IS A TERRORIST’

Watters’ comments came after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the frontrunner among declared Democratic candidates as of Tuesday, indicated he would be willing to let Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev vote as part of his plan to extend that right to felons in prison.

Regardless of what Democrats intended, Watters predicted that policy would ruin their electoral prospects. “They just handled Donald Trump the wedgiest of wedge issues,” he said before asking Williams if Democrats actually wanted to lose in 2020. “This is made to order for Donald Trump,” Watters added.

Sanders’ proposal, Watters suggested, would result in corruption and fraud. “[Democrats] have totally undercut their messaging on election integrity,” he said.

BERNIE SANDERS BACKERS UPSET WITH PETE BUTTIGIEG OVER TRUMP COMPARISON

Sanders, who faced a wave of criticism for his proposal, defended felons’ voting rights as part of American democracy. “I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” he said Monday.

“Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘That guy committed a terrible crime, not gonna let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not gonna let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope,” he added.

According to polling from April, Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden gathered the most support of Democratic voters in New Hampshire. Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., have both called for a restoration of felons’ voting rights after their release from prison. Buttigieg, however, disagreed with Sanders’ proposal to let felons vote while they remained in prison.

Timpf: Impeachment would make the president ‘more popular’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6029193493001_6029191320001-vs Timpf: Impeachment would make the president 'more popular' Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc c9118082-5f39-5a64-8557-9e21bc1ec5b7 article

Fox News contributor Katherine Timpf criticized the Democratic Party’s consideration of impeachment Monday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” saying that such an action would only embolden President Trump.

“I think  it would make President Trump more popular. It would make them look petty and I think it would make President Trump look like a victim and a sympathetic figure. And I think that they know that. They must know that,” Timpf told Cavuto.

TOP DEM DISMISSES POSSIBILITY OF COLLUSION FATIGUE: ‘THE RUSSIANS AREN’T GETTING TIRED’

“I don’t think they’re complete morons. I think that they are able to  realize simple facts and history. So I really think they’re just trying to drum up support among their base. Which I think is effective in that way. Other Democrats, people further left, do like to hear that.”

Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called for impeachment Monday while appearing on CNN.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., opposes impeachment but is facing opposition from some members within the party.

Timpf noted that Democrats were better off letting the American people know how they could make their lives better.

“So I think what Democrats should be doing is they should be focusing on — they say we can make it better. These are our ideas rather than say let’s impeach the president,” Timpf said.

The “Greg Gutfeld Show” regular also asked why the Democrats were working so hard to remove Trump and give Vice President Mike Pence the nation’s highest office.

“I can’t believe we’re seeing some Democrats fighting so hard for Pence. I had no idea they like Pence so much. That doesn’t mean that you get Hillary Clinton if they actually did impeach Trump,” Timpf said.

Chicago police union president weighs in on brothers filing defamation suit in Smollett case

Westlake Legal Group Kevin-Graham Chicago police union president weighs in on brothers filing defamation suit in Smollett case Talia Kaplan fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/jussie-smollett fox-news/entertainment/genres/crime fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/us fnc c6b6213d-2003-5431-afd1-237d2db8cf04 article

Kevin Graham, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday that “one of the things that is troubling” in the Jussie Smollett case is that it “never went to court.”

That meant, he said, that Abel and Ola Osundairo, the brothers accused of attacking Smollett in January — then later accused of helping him stage the alleged hate crime hoax — will not get the chance to try to get their names cleared.

Graham made the statements shortly after the Osundairo brothers filed a defamation lawsuit against the “Empire” star’s attorneys, Tina Glandian and Mark Geragos, and Geragos’ firm.

“They want to have their names cleared. They want to see justice served. They want to have the truth come out so that the people of Chicago and the people of Cook County know what actually occurred,” said Graham.

He added, “I know that Jussie Smollett’s attorneys have done everything they could to keep this out of the courtroom. We certainly have a problem here in Cook County because the state’s attorney has dropped all charges. (That) leads to other problems. And we certainly encourage wanting to get to the truth and to get people to understand what occurred.”

BROTHERS ACCUSED OF ATTACKING JUSSIE SMOLLETT SUE HIS ATTORNEYS FOR DEFAMATION

The defamation suit alleges that Geragos and his firm continued to say publicly in widely reported statements that the Osundairo brothers “led a criminally homophobic, racist and violent attack against Mr. Smollett,” even though they allegedly knew that wasn’t true.

The brothers are seeking punitive damages as well as lost income in the lawsuit.

“That is why today we are taking action in federal court,” the Osundairos’ attorney, Gloria Schmidt, said Tuesday. “We want to end these malicious attacks and ensure that those responsible for continuing to destroy the reputation of the Chicago Police Department and Abel and Ola Osundairo are held accountable.”

Geragos and Glandian slammed the suit, telling Fox News, “At first we thought this comical legal document was a parody. Instead this so-called lawsuit by the brothers is more of their lawyer-driven nonsense, and a desperate attempt for them to stay relevant and further profit from an attack they admit they perpetrated. While we know this ridiculous lawsuit will soon be dismissed because it lacks any legal footing, we look forward to exposing the fraud the Osundairo brothers and their attorneys have committed on the public.”

In January, Smollett told authorities that two masked men attacked him, put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him as he was walking home from a Subway restaurant. The actor, who is black and openly gay, said the masked men beat him, made racist and homophobic comments and yelled, “This is MAGA country” before fleeing the scene. Surveillance video reportedly revealed the Osundairo brothers purchased the rope allegedly used in the attack.

MORE THAN 30 TEENS ARRESTED FOR DISRUPTING DOWNTOWN CHICAGO

Smollett was later arrested for allegedly filing a false police report and faced 16 counts of disorderly conduct. The charges against the actor were dropped. Smollett has maintained his innocence and insists the attack was real. The city of Chicago has since sued the actor in an effort to recoup resources spent investigating the alleged hoax.

“I look forward to the court case where we can find out and the people of Chicago can find out what happened,” said Graham responding to Tuesday’s filing by the Osundairo brothers.

On “America’s Newsroom,” Graham also weighed in on the recent violence in Chicago. Police said they arrested more than 30 teenagers last Wednesday after large groups of high school students caused disruptions and started fights in downtown Chicago. Graham said he thinks incidents like that are happening in Chicago because teenagers feel they can get away with it, in part because charges against Smollett were dropped.

“These kids are emboldened because there doesn’t seem to be a consequence for their actions. And we want to change that narrative. We want the new mayor to back up the police and we want to do our job. We want to keep this city safe but we can’t do it by ourselves,” said Graham, who added that there has been an increased police presence in downtown Chicago in light of the recent violence.

The Associated Press and Fox News’ Sasha Savitsky and Tyler McCarthy contributed to this report.

Rep. Mike Turner: Pelosi encourages Schiff and ‘his minions’ to continue their pursuit of Trump

Westlake Legal Group Mike-Turner-AP Rep. Mike Turner: Pelosi encourages Schiff and ‘his minions’ to continue their pursuit of Trump Talia Kaplan fox-news/us fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 84dbfa92-3053-55ac-ab24-227c5d0c005c

Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi encourages House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and “his minions” to continue their pursuit of President Trump “as if he’s the most significant threat to our national security instead of our adversaries.”

Turner added that it is “certainly interrupting real congressional work that needs to be done.”

“The intelligence committee should be working on issues such as Russia and China, North Korea and Iran” instead of focusing on Trump, he said.

DEM LEADERS REJECT IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS IN URGENT CONFERENCE CALL

Turner made the statements on “America’s Newsroom” a day after House Democrats participated in a conference call with party leadership to discuss their next steps after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.

While some have pushed for impeachment, Pelosi, D-Calif., already has stated her opposition to launching impeachment proceedings, saying in an interview last week it would  be “divisive” and “just not worth it.”

“The Constitution gives very limited authority for Congress to remove a president, impeachment. It requires crimes and high misdemeanors. The founding fathers could have drafted the Constitution to say that Congress could remove the president if they just didn’t like them. But that’s not the case. They cannot just put political party or their own political wishes above the electorate which viably elected the president of the United States,” Turner said.

MUELLER PROBE HAS COST TAXPAYERS MORE THAN $25 MILLION, SPENDING REPORT REVEALS

Fox News is told by two senior sources on the private conference call that Pelosi and her leadership team were clear there were no immediate plans to move forward with impeachment. Well-placed sources said it was a spirited 87-minute call involving more than 170 Democratic members, including Schiff.

“We have to save our democracy,” Pelosi said during the call, according to the sources. “This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution – if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go.”

Pelosi asserted that more investigations were needed: “We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts.”

“In this instance, we see that Congress is now saying through Nancy Pelosi that they’re going to continue their investigations. Congress does have a limited authority in which to investigate the president. I think we’re probably going to see a lot of court interpretation as to where congressional authority ends and where it begins,” Turner said in response.

“You can’t just begin to investigate a president for the purposes of seeking reasons to remove him. In this instance, I think that people need to stop putting political party ahead of the interests of the American public.”

Turner added, “Congress needs to get back to work to see how we can improve the lives of the American public, not just improve their political parties.”

Karl Rove throws cold water on Bernie Sanders’ lead in new poll: ‘Numbers are all over the board’

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-d193fa7dadc2486b82f2a0fedd2901f8 Karl Rove throws cold water on Bernie Sanders' lead in new poll: 'Numbers are all over the board' Sam Dorman fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/politics fnc article 53b89d74-d01b-511b-9a40-934bcaa93a63

On Tuesday, Fox News political contributor Karl Rove threw cold water on Sens. Bernie Sanders’, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren’s, D-Mass., 2020 candidacies.

His comments came after the University of New Hampshire released a poll showing Sanders beating former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits — 30 percent to 18 percent of likely Democratic voters in the granite state. Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg came in third with 15 percent while Warren lagged each of them with just five percent of likely voters’ support.

BIDEN’S 2020 CAMPAIGN LAUNCH PUSHED TO THURSDAY: SOURCES

Although Sanders has frequently led declared Democratic candidates, Biden, who is expected to declare his candidacy in the coming days, has beaten him in previous polling. “Gotta be a little careful with these polls,” Rove told “America’s Newsroom” host Bill Hemmer.

Rove pointed to St. Anselm College’s earlier polling which showed Biden leading Sanders by 7 percent (23 to 16 percent) among registered Democratic voters in New Hampshire, and Warren garnering 9 percent of their support.

“These numbers are all over the board. Do we really think that Joe Biden has lost 20 percent of his support in 10 days? Do we really think that Bernie Sanders has doubled his support in 10 days? … Elizabeth Warren, do we think she’s lost nearly half her support in 10 days?” Rove asked, sounding incredulous.

Rove, who speculated Sanders could beat President Donald Trump in 2020, said he expected Sanders to have an advantage over Biden given that his home state of Vermont is adjacent to New Hampshire. The interesting story, Rove said, was that Warren, who has been painted as a progressive hero, wasn’t doing so well.

WARREN’S MASSIVE $640 BILLION STUDENT LOAN CANCELLATION QUESTIONED OVER FAIRNESS TO STUDENTS WHO PAID OFF THEIR DEBTS

“Elizabeth Warren, just off of a re-election campaign in Massachusetts, not doing too well in either poll,” Rove observed. The polling results came just after Warren became the first Democratic candidate to call for impeachment hearings surrounding Trump’s conduct in office — something more established Democrats have shied away from apparently due to its political implications.

Sanders has backed away from impeachment but, like Warren, has faced criticism for proposing large government programs that would cost American taxpayers a lot of money. His populist disposition has led some to compare him to the president. As Rove pointed out, a fraction of Sanders’ supporters backed Trump in the general election.

Rove argued that Buttigieg, whom he saw as a strong contender in recent polling, made a smart move in tying Sanders and Trump together as populist influences that needed to be tamed by a candidate like him.

As a disturbing surge in measles cases has been reported nationwide, Professor of Medicine at New York University Dr. Marc Siegel warns that if you were vaccinated between a certain time frame, you might not be as immune to the disease as you think.

There have been 626 reported cases of the measles in 22 states as of April 19, nearing record highs since the disease was eradicated in the United States in 2000, according to the Centers for Disease Control released statistics that show.

Dr. Siegel told “America’s Newsroom” hosts on Tuesday that a primary reason the CDC is informing the public about these skyrocketing numbers is so that individuals born between 1963 and 1989 know that they should be checked by a physician to ensure their vaccines were successful.

“If you were born in the 1960s… you may have gotten a vaccine that doesn’t work very well, and you may need another one,” Dr. Siegel said. Specifically, he added, those born between the years of 1963 and 1967 should make sure their vaccines were effective.

JUDGE DENIES REQUEST FOR UNVACCINATED CHILDREN TO RETURN TO NY SCHOOL AMID MEASLES OUTBREAK 

If you were born between those years, he said, it’s possible that you aren’t immune to measles. If you were born between the years of 1967 and 1989, Dr. Siegel added, doctors were only giving one shot of the vaccine instead of the current practice of two. Therefore you may only have partial immunity if you were vaccinated in those years.

Checking for immunity is as easy as getting a blood test, Dr. Siegel added.

Those traveling to countries like Africa, Israel, and the Middle East, especially, should check with doctors before leaving to ensure they’re immune because those countries are reporting an abnormally high amount of measles cases.

Ultimately, he argues, it’s a public safety risk not to comply with vaccination requirements. People nationwide who can’t get vaccines, such as cancer sufferers, pregnant women or those with auto-immune disorders, are extremely vulnerable to those diseases and can’t protect themselves fully from the unvaccinated.

A top congressional Republican told Fox News that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report shows the salacious Steele dossier used by the FBI to obtain surveillance warrants in the Russia probe was “false and fake,” questioning the origins of the investigation into the Trump campaign.

“The question is, ‘was there a proper predicate?” Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Monday on “The Ingraham Angle.” “Was there probable cause to believe that there was a conspiracy or collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia? So that’s the question that has to be answered.”

CONTROVERSIAL STEELE DOSSIER BACK IN SPOTLIGHT AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE

Ratcliffe said he is one of the few lawmakers to view the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications used by the FBI to get authorization to conduct surveillance in the Russia probe. He said those applications relied heavily on a dossier of since-debunked claims about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele.

“Trey Gowdy and I — I think — were the only two Republicans that had the opportunity to see that probable cause evidence, to see all of those FISA applications in unredacted form and they centered around something called the Steele dossier which was entirely false and fake, and now Bob Mueller says it was false and fake,” Ratcliffe said.

He added: “Now, to be fair, just because Bob Mueller found that there was no evidence of a conspiracy or no evidence of collusion, doesn’t mean that there couldn’t be probable cause to look for it.”

Still, Ratcliffe said officials at the Justice Department like former FBI director Jim Comey, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe and former deputy attorney general Sally Yates have “got some explaining to do.”

It comes amid renewed scrutiny on the genesis of FBI probe. Attorney General Bill Barr has said he is reviewing the origins of the Russia investigation at the FBI and the Justice Department, including whether the surveillance was “adequately predicated.”

EX-FBI ASSISTANT DIRECTOR ON MUELLER REPORT: ‘WE NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THIS STARTED’

Ratcliffe pointed out how the dossier said that one-time Trump campaign adviser Carter Page was “at the center of a well-developed conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.” But Mueller’s probe did not find evidence to back up the claim, saying “the investigation did not establish that Page coordinated with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.”

“Carter Page was never charged, he was never going to be charged. The idea he was a Russian agent was a joke,” Ratcliffe said.

The FBI needed probable cause to open its counterintelligence investigation late July 2016. According to Mueller’s report, the FBI opened an investigation into whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were coordinating with the Russian government on July 31, 2016. The report said it was prompted by a foreign government official who contacted the FBI about a conversation with Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who had discussed Russia’s hacking of Democratic emails with the official.

Judge Napolitano on census: ‘The only question you are obliged to answer is the total number of people who live there’

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said Tuesday that as it stands, the only information that must be disclosed for the census is the total number of people who live in a residence.

Napolitano appeared on “Fox & Friends” on the same day the Supreme Court was to hear arguments over whether the 2020 census can include a question about citizenship, ensuring a quick review of a lower court ruling that blocked the Trump administration from doing that.

“The government is looking to acquire information about where people live and where people who are not authorized to be here live because that has a profound effect on federal aid to cities and has a profound effect on members of Congress,” said Napolitano.

SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE WHETHER CITIZENSHIP QUESTION CAN BE INCLUDED IN 2020 CENSUS

After hearing arguments, the high court is expected to announce a decision by late June.

Justices were slated to hear the case on Feb. 19, but in January, justices suspended oral arguments on the plan to add a citizenship question to the census next year. The justices put the matter on hold after a federal district court judge ruled the government could not proceed with its plans.

The Trump administration, though, then announced it would directly ask the Supreme Court to overrule the federal court judge, who said in a court opinion that such a question would dramatically reduce the response rate—and congressional representation—of non-citizens.

Napolitano said he doesn’t know which way the Supreme Court is going to go, but offered some insight as to what information must be provided as it currently stands.

“Now what a lot of people don’t know is, the population consists of everybody who lives here, lawful or unlawful. And that number, that base number also affects the amount of money that the federal government gives to certain localities, depending upon a variety of formulas. So the argument in favor of this is, the more the government knows, the fairer it can be in the distribution of assets and the determination of how many members of Congress,” said Napolitano.

FEDERAL JUDGE BARS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FROM ADDING CITIZENSHIP QUESTION TO 2020 CENSUS

“The other argument is, that people are afraid to answer truthfully because if they are here unlawfully, they think that’s it’s going to result in their detention or deportation.”

He added, “If the census people come knocking at your door and say ‘What is your nationality?’ Do you have to answer? They’re not going to like what I’m about to tell you, the answer is no.”

He went on to explain the only question that must be answered, “How many people are living there? That, you have to answer.”

Napolitano added, “You can ask any question you want and most people will think because the government is asking I must answer. But the only question you are obliged to answer is the total number of people who live there.”

Americans would see impeachment as a ‘limp attempt at a soft coup:’ Joe Concha

As the divide widens between Democrats rallying for and against launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump, media reporter Joe Concha argued the party’s leadership knows that the ramifications from the American people would not be desirable.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unequivocally denounced impeachment proceedings on Monday, distancing herself from the likes of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris who have all voiced their support for the move. Referencing former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, Concha asserted his belief that should the same happen to Trump, it would make him a sympathetic figure and cast a vindictive light on the Democratic party.

“Nancy Pelosi has seen this, and she knows the ramifications for the party that tries to carry it out,” Concha said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning.

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

“It will be seen basically by half of the American people as a limp attempt at soft coup at removing a president that they know they don’t have the votes for in the Senate,” he continued.

Furthermore, those who voted for the Democrats in November want to see them “solve problems, not go down this road,” and that the American people “don’t have an appetite for it,” Concha claimed.

On Monday, Democrat leaders decided against launching impeachment proceedings against the president following a party meeting.

Pelosi and her leadership team were clear there were no immediate plans to move forward with impeachment, Fox News was told. Well-placed sources said it was a spirited 87-minute call involving more than 170 Democrat members, including House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings.

“We have to save our democracy,” Pelosi said, according to the sources. “This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about saving our democracy. If it is what we need to do to honor our responsibility to the Constitution – if that’s the place the facts take us, that’s the place we have to go.”

Pelosi asserted that more investigations were needed: “We don’t have to go to articles of impeachment to obtain the facts, the presentation of facts.”

Fox News’ Gregg Re contributed to this report.
