I saw a let's talk bit but Russia because that there seems to be a lot of interaction between trap of the Russians from his son. To his former campaign manager manna for it to even trump himself and it got the list goes not. Every day something else comes out now do you see any smoking gun here at all. Well I think what we. What we have is some very strong evidence. About the possibility of collusion. But Troy what is important. Is that every American whether they're conservative or progressive and you're like trump you don't like trouble. That they believe that this process is objective and it is fail that it is methodical. Right now you got the Senate Intelligence Committee he got the House Intelligence Committee. Going forward in a bipartisan way -- Bob Bullock former FBI director as special counsel counsel looking at this issue the charges all very serious. Let the process continue and reached judgment after all of the evidence is accumulated. Senator truck has said that most people would have taken this meeting that his son took up we all know that politics can be dirty some out there are saying. The DNC worked very hard to have you not be the candidate represented Democrats last time around. What do you say to people would say this is just politics as usual this is how work. Zone I really don't agree look politics is oddly. There is that level of effort to try to destroy candidates personally it's lecturer at such truck blocks. Presidential candidates. Do not have email chains. With foreign governments were talking about how they come elect. How they could elect June and have dirt on your opponent that is a Cleo violation. Of campaign finance law a law. So it is not true that this is politics as usual this is very very unusual and that's why these investigations. By taking. Place. So here's my question health care it seems you know Bob Bob care is here to stay someone's got to figure this out. Is it now time for everybody to shut up sit down and figure out what works and what doesn't work. Yet so Whoopi is yes and let me just say this. I want to personally like millions of Americans. Who's still up and fought back. And said that knoller not gonna throw 22 million people in this country off of health insurance cut Medicaid by 800 billion dollars. Defund Planned Parenthood. Make it almost a half. Affordable health gap and the American people think we're not gonna do that give tax breaks. The billion answer it large corporations it appears that we have one. That struggle right now. Masses yeah blog let me say this OK we have got to ask ourselves why aren't we are the only major country on earth. Not to guarantee healthcare to all people Anthony Wright. Not a privilege that's the next night back. I want I want to makes a lot of sense so is it now time for you want to sit down. On both sides of BI now is say let's get rid of what doesn't work. Let's keep what does work and do that in the name of the people as a part as opposed to. In the name of the parties is it now time for you all that to do this together. Well what do you think you're exactly right nobody thinks. That the affordable care Iraq is perfect. Deductibles the to apply. Co payments of two hog premium so too like prescription drug costs are outrageous in this country they have got to. Outlook jobless here Democrat Republican independent is the stand together for the American people and tackle those problems. I want to talk about the rhetoric and senator because if you're gonna sit down with people on both sides of the aisle. Some Democrats have granite Republicans the party of death for example calling the tax cuts in the senate health care bill blood money. You yourself is have Republicans are potentially killing Americans. He's got rhetoric irresponsible and does it provide an impasse to compromise if you're gonna sit down with those very people that you've now said. Want to kill people know I never said that's not new using rhetoric. That I didn't use and I don't I don't. This is what I said. What I said it is not me. This is a doesn't warm war studies that show. That if you throw 22 million people off the insurance they have these are people who up cancel. He's a big love heart disease diabetes although life threatening illnesses. What study after study shows is that thousands all of those people will delight. That's what Hawkins that is. That's what Scotty after. If Panasik you have Republicans that are proposing alternatives Republicans who also come from the good place to believe the free market is the solution to most and who don't want people to die who don't want people to suffer. If you think knowledge that those people exist as well humble side of the aisle how can only have to the table and compromise. I have said publicly nobody here in the congress wants anybody to delight. I understand that. What that is the result of throwing 22 million people off of health insurance so let us sit down Republican Democrat independent. Ed figure out how we go forward how we improve the affordable character I am absolutely open to doing that.
