We'Ll bring articles of impeachment, presumably before the committee at some point later in the week. Have you have an idea of how many articles you, you think we're gon na draw, though you're not ready? I'M seem to be hesitant, i'm not ready to decide that and it's not just my decision. Obviously, there are a wide variety of factors that have to be considered, including the degree of proof, the d ...
gree of confidence and where the members of the caucus are. We certainly have an abundance of evidence on very various things and again the republicans have virtually not contested. This all of that they have said all that they have said is they've opposed the process but notthe evidence. May i ask you this: if he's acquitted, do you believe we'll have a fair election in 2020?

It is, however, one of my points of discouragement that there are agrowing number of people on both sides of the aisles basis. We simply don't believe in compromise. You realize that the more of the civil folks that leave you know who replaces them chuck. I have run my race, i have fought the good fight and i've kept the faith and i am tired, hello from washington, i'm chuck todd and thanks for checking out the meet the press channel on youtube click on the button down here to subscribe and click over.
