3:00 pm
the ladies, i guess they can go there. there's a promo right there so do the promo code. you can get 15% off of these puppies. >> dana: i think we will just leave it right there with jesse. we don't need to know anymore. that's it for us, "special report" is up next. >> i'm going to have her grizzly bear filter one time when you talk to me. welcome, and washington breaking tonight and just last hour, the senate voted that the impeachment trial of president donald trump can move forward, six republicans joined democrats in the 66-44 votes saying the impeachment trial is constitutional. the trial has adjourned until noon tomorrow. former president donald trump remains at his name home in florida refusing to testify. tomorrow the house managers will present their opening arguments that an insurrection on january 6, which is a charge his legal team denies.
3:01 pm
while we wait for the case to be laid out we certainly have it previewed today. congressional correspondent chad pergram joins us live at capitol hill with a look at today's proceedings. >> the senate building 56-44 to forge ahead with the trial, and that trial is in fact constitutional. they were susan collins, lisa murkowski, mitt romney, ben sasse, mitt romney and bill cassidy. he voted two weeks ago to short-circuit the trial. this was a precedent-setting day as a senate considers for the first time an article of impeachment against a former president. lee impeachment manager jamie raskin wanted senators to relive the horror of january 6. democrats played a violent, graphic 13 minute video showing the chaos of the attack. [crowd noise] >> he asked "you
3:02 pm
ask what a high crime and misdemeanor is? that's a high crime and misdemeanor under the constitution. >> president trump may not know a lot about the framers but they certainly knew a lot about him. giving the framers intense focus on danger to elections and the peaceful transfer of power, it is inconceivable that they design impeachment to be a dead letter and the president's final days in office. >> raskin brought his 24-year-old daughter tabitha and his son-in-law with him to the capital on the sixth and during the melee they hid under a desk and they sent what raskin described as final text thinking they would later die, but they were rescued. >> i told her how sorry i was and i promised her it would not be like this again the next time she came back to the capital with me.
3:03 pm
and you know what she said? she said data, i don't want to come back to the capital. of all the terrible and brutal things that i saw and i heard on that day and since then, that when hit me the hardest. >> today's debate focused on the constitutionality of the trial and mr. trump's attorney argued the trial would so further division. >> this trial will tear this country apart perhaps like we'd seen once before in our history. the house managers in their wisdom have hired a movie company and a large law firm to create manufacture and splice for you design package by experts to chill and horrify you and our fellow americans. >> so the slippery slope principle will have taken hold if we continue to go forward with what is happening today and scheduled to happen later this
3:04 pm
week. >> but article one section three of the constitution says the senate has a right to try all impeachments. at the house impeachment manager is lay out the case against the president tomorrow and thursday and then the president's counsel at the end of the week, and the trial probably won't wrap until next week. the founders wanted impeachments to be political length democrats are certainly using this as a political wedge against republicans. democrats believe the best while they have going into 2022 is president trump. does that work for democrats? it did not work in the house and senate races last december so the senate voted 56-44 that the trial is constitutional end it all resumes at noon eastern tomorrow. >> bret: had chad pergram on capitol hill. at the white house, president biden says the senate will handle our impeachment and he will handle the business of the nation. as white house correspondent peter doocy reports, president biden's focus is on the minimum wage and jobs.
3:05 pm
>> president biden is brainstorming ways to help low-wage workers hurt by the covid-19 in common with the heads of giants, like walmart, the gap and at jpmorgan. >> president biden: a lot of people are in real trouble. >> he things it would help to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour thinking could lift people out of poverty but could eliminate 1.4 million jobs. so the white house is pointing to a different part of that projection. >> 27 million american workers would be able to get -- help get them out of poverty. it's a huge impact of raising the minimum wage. >> there are also questions about who qualifies for a full stimulus check. they are making up to $75,000 per year. >> does president biden support sending stimulus of benefits to undocumented immigrants? >> again, if someone has a social security number like a child or a spouse then they would be eligible.
3:06 pm
>> laid off keystone pipeline workers would soon be eligible for green jobs. >> why can't it be a little bit of both so we can see how that's going to work out? >> 14 republican attorneys general, pulling the pipeline and threatening legal action in writing, it's cold comfort to suggest to now jobless americans that by turning the page on projects like keystone xl workers can look forward to high-paying green energy jobs that don't yet exist. >> we are not going to build those solar panels, solar panels will be built by the cheapest bidder and the cheapest price that we can get. >> the biden family business deals are under new scrutiny by ethics after comic experts curious about the son-in-law who wants advised biden on a covid-19 response while working for and howard crime. >> he is bent at the white house since the inauguration.
3:07 pm
as he still advising the president on the covid-19 response? >> dr. cryan as his son-in-law. and i think he was here because the president was inaugurated recently which is understandable. >> we do not expect to see president biden again on camber this evening. we are told he has not been following or watching the impeachment arguments and that we should not expect to hear him give updates on what he thinks about the impeachment proceedings in the days to follow. jen psaki says that because he is the president and not a pundit. >> bret: a peter doocy live on the north wanted, thank you. let's bring our panel early, bill mcgurn, mara lysine, and former south carolina congressman trey gowdy. first to you, the opening arguments on the constitutionality today. there were a lot of people online commenting that the emotional presentation by the
3:08 pm
house managers hit a chord obviously with the video and then kind of rambling on the trump lawyers open but then closed on the constitutionality question that failed in the vote 56-44. >> i think that, if you are just going to score these presentations, the democratic house managers probably had more, and as a matter of fact the trump lawyers even said they change some of their arguments after they heard with the house managers have presented. you have six republicans to vote, to go ahead with this trial and i don't know if they were convinced, if bill cassidy had his mind changed today but now we are going to go forward and we have gotten over the process part of this argument. yes, this trial can go forward and its constitutional according to the senate. now in the days to come we are going to hear about trump's behavior and the senators are going to decide if that behavior
3:09 pm
merits of any kind of punishment or not. speak on ray, what about the presentation today and what's this about today on the constitutionality tell you about the way forward? >> you know brett, jamie raskin is one of the few law professors i've ever known that can actually connect with the jury. he's a very, very good trial lawyer and so was impeachment manager from colorado. if the president's lawyers continue to cite the hastings trial which was 200 something years ago or 300 years ago they need a factual defense for what the president was doing and why while the siege was going on. and if they don't have that, they may win the verdict but they will lose the war. >> bret: it's bill, it was one of those days where i really wanted to see president trump's twitter feed to see what he was thinking about the lawyers presentation.
3:10 pm
and to me the most interesting aspect was how anticlimactic it was and i think they more or less undo the vote, and there's a lot of questions about the constitutionality of what they are doing because the constitution is silent on that particular issue, first impeaching and trying the president after he had left office. that means there's no clear-cut answer on either side and people could have it but what it also means is that the senators make the decision. we can say is unconstitutional or constitutional but what they do basically decides the issue and for the most part because the courts are reluctant to step in when they consider it a matter of political fears, a political argument that needs to be settled between the president, or in this case, the ex-president. and the senate. >> bret: you know, they are in
3:11 pm
congress, walking and chewing gum and moving forward with this covid release package. specifically on minimum wage it looks like despite what president biden said in the interview at cbs and what was heading into this week, they are going to try to get this thing through, increasing minimum wage to $15 wage comic phase over four years. >> there is still a question as to whether the minimum wage hike needs to be included in the rule in the reconciliation bill and the parliamentarianism is to rule on that. the white house need some good news because of the deficit, that's one of the criteria being included in the type of legislation that can be passed with only 51 votes. but we will see. i think the minimum wage about a new lease on life potentially but joe biden was pretty convinced that it didn't belong in reconciliation and he would have to try to push it another way. but we will see when it actually comes up. >> bret: but trey, chuck schumer wasn't. he said he will work with the
3:12 pm
department and they will write it in a way that it fits under these rules and that brings up a whole list of questions about small businesses and how that will affect them over the next four years. >> he doesn't even have to work with a parliamentarian. she could rule and the senate could overrule or overturn her finding because they've done it before. i think joe biden is smart enough to know that running on a campaign platform of, congratulations, you got a raise, sorry you lost her job, is not a winning platform in 2022. and i think he is smart enough to know that. >> this is what's going to be interesting, whether they decide to overturn the parliamentarian. in my mind to come at the president talks about at divided country that needs to be brought back together. well, it's not going to be brought back together by getting people to agree on policy, they are very different principles
3:13 pm
and very different philosophies and they want very different policies. and that's a process and custom and tradition not to just override everything that gets in the way of a goal, that's what really shows bitterness. they just lost the votes, and when people change the rules in the game, that leads to a lot of bitterness and a lot of people are talking about getting revenge when it's our turn. >> bret: senator joe manchin was on the show and said he wasn't for minimum wage being included and yet has votes over the last few days seem to indicate that he's going to fall in line. >> was interesting about joe manchin who i would say is a most important democrat in the senate, and he's kept alive this idea of reconciliation if needed. he has said that he prepare
3:14 pm
prefers that's bipartisan. i don't know if you can get ten, and that he also said after the interview he did with you that there is a trillion dollar bipartisan package that could be had today. i'm waiting to see the details of that, and he still hopeful that democrats come together on something that didn't pass the senate. >> bret: much of the pressure is on him for this reconciliation vote. the justice department is asking dozens of u.s. attorneys appointed by a former president donald trump to resign from their posts as the biden administration booster transition to its own nominees. but the administration is allowing two investigations to continue. correspondent david spent has our report. >> dozens of trump area u.s. attorneys are preparing to resign. this afternoon on a phone call
3:15 pm
acting attorney general monte williamson expressed his wish for 56 u.s. attorneys to step down. >> congratulations mr. president. >> the move is not unusual, when a new administration takes power, the prior administration usually leaves. then attorney general jeff sessions asked for the resignation of 46 obama area u.s. attorneys but received heavy blowback as biden administration is giving them several weeks. but at least one u.s. attorney is being asked to stay. u.s. attorney david weiss of delaware. president-elect biden made it clear that the department of justice would operate on its own, free from white house pressure. >> i want to be clear to those who lead this department, who you will serve. you won't work for me.
3:16 pm
>> john durham, the u.s. attorney for the district of connecticut will resign in that role but will also stay in a special counsel. >> i think president biden had a limited role of choice here. had he done that he would've come under attack. >> they have until the end of the month to resign. >> bret: david, thanks. the number of people who have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine is approaching 10 million as the biden administration continues to increase the vaccine supply to states. and states will see their allocation of doses rise to 11 million per week next week, a rise of more than 10 million. the white house also's disturbing vaccines to health care centers which primarily for the hot low income and uninsured. in the meantime the world health organization is dismissing the
3:17 pm
idea that coronavirus leak from a chinese lab setting off a chain of events that has no claim to more than 2 million lives worldwide. but not everyone is convinced about what is coming out of the w.h.o. and that investigation. the national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us live from the pentagon with details. >> the delegation which did not include american scientists that it at a press briefing in wuhan today that the coronavirus is extremely unlikely to have leaked from a chinese lab and most likely and former secretary of state had enough access from the chinese government. >> so nothing is changing your view that it came from a lab? >> five days before leaving, pompeo quietly distribute it a fact sheet using them of deceit

3:20 pm
chicago districts will start opening after a bitter drawn-out struggle from the mayor and the chief of chicago schools. the union voted on a tentative agreement that guarantees vaccinations for teachers and that creates thresholds to shut down in-person instruction if the virus urges and starts seeing students in the classroom at on thursday at best. they reached a tentative agreement and, that's taking its own school district to court in attempting to for safety measures. >> i am worried that the tentative agreement will propose that the union and not get us to a place in the city where we will open schools this year. >> urging at the federation of teachers defining their school district and refused in-person instruction. >> the school district is hell-bent on forcing thousands of educators into unfazed building is held together in
