>> REPORTER: REPUBLICANS ARE LEAVING NOTHING TO CHANCE IN A MEMO OF CONTAINED BY FOX NEWS FROM THE GOP STAFF OF THE THREE INVESTIGATING COMMITTEES TO ITS MEMBERS THEY HIGHLIGHT FOUR KEY PIECES OF EVIDENCE WHICH THEY SHOW THERE WAS NO TREASON OR BRIBEE FIRST, THE JULY 25 CALL SHOWS NO EVIDENCE OF PRESSURE SECOND, UKRAINE PRESIDENT PRESIDENTZELENSKY SAID THERE WAS NO PRESSURE

THEY SAY THERE WERE NOT AWARE OF A HOLD ON FUNDS AT THE TIME OF THE CALL AND FINALLY, THE FACT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP MET THE BE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY AND AID WENT THERE THERE WERE OTHER TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED YESTERDAY LAURA COOPER REVEALS CONCERN OVER THE DOD WITHHOLDING FUNDS, TESTIFYING THERE WAS NOT AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THIS COULD LEGALLY PLAY OUT WE COULD SEE THE TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S FIRST CALL IN APRIL WITH PRESIDENT ZELENSKY, THAT COULD COME AS EARLY AS TODAY

PRESUMABLY THAT WILL SHOW THAT THE DEFENSE OF THE PRESIDENT AS REPUBLICANS HAVE MADE WILL CONTINUE TO BE CONSISTENT NOW, WE'RE WAITING TO LEARN WHETHER OR NOT THE DEMOCRATS WILL ALLOW ANY OF THE WITNESSES THAT REPUBLICANS WISH TO CALL IN THE OPEN HEARINGS ON THE LIST, HUNTER BIDEN HE WEIGHED IN YESTERDAY ON THAT PROSPECT >> THERE IS ZERO RATIONAL FOR THAT TO HAPPEN

THIS ISAL ALL A DIVERSION THIS IS CLASSIC TRUMP, CLASSIC TRUMP FOCUS ON THE PROBLEM WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT PEOPLE TO SERVE IN THAT OFFICE >> REPORTER: WE'LL SEE WHAT TODAY BRINGS, HEATHER

WHAT'S COMING TOMORROW IS THE FIRST OPEN HEARINGS, THAT WILL FEATURE BILL TAYLOR AND GEORGE KENT ON FRIDAY, WE'LL HEAR FROM MARIA YOVANOVITCH HEATHER: THANK YOU SO MUCH, GRIFF THE ACTING WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF IS FILING A LAWSUIT TO FIGHT HIS SUBPOENA IN THE INQUIRY MICK MULVANEY TELLING A FEDERAL JUDGE THAT HE IS WITH DRAWING HIS BID TO JOIN ANOTHER LAWSUIT FILED BY CHARLES CUPPERMAN

CUPPERMAN WAS SUBPOENAED BY DEMOCRATS BUT THE REQUEST HAS SINCE BEEN DROPPED THE QUESTION NOW, WHAT WILL THE PUBLIC HEARINGS THAT GRIFF WAS JUST TELLING US ABOUT ACCOMPLISH BILL McGERN WITH THE WALL STREET JOURNAL SAYS NOTHING, THEY WILL ACCOMPLISH NOTHING, BECAUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE MADE UP THEIR MINDS >> LOOK, FIRST TO PUT THIS IN CONTEXT, WE KNOW WHAT THE OUTCOME OF THIS DRAMA IS THEY'RE GOING THROUGH THE HEARINGS TO GET TO IMPEACHMENT

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY DOUBT ONCE MRS PELOSI MOVED FORWARD THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE AN IMPEACHMENT I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF GOOD CONCERNS ABOUT WHERE THE WHISTLEBLOWER CAME FROM AND SO FORTH AND IN THE SAME WAY THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE ANGRY WHEN BILL B BARR SAID I'M GOING TO LOOKINTOI INVESTIGATION, A LOT OF THOSE SAME PEOPLE DON'T WANT US TO LOOK INTO A WHISTLEBLOWER I THINK THIS IS ALL DRAMA

I THINK IT DOESN'T MATTER AT THE EASTBOUND OF THE DAY, YOU'RE — END OF THE DAY, YOU'RE PLAYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC YOU HAVE TO PERSUADE THEM THIS IS FAIR AND PRINCIPLINGED GOING FORWARD HEATHER: THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES SAYS THE OPEN HEARINGS WILL START AT 10:00 AM

TOMORROW MORNING WITH AMBASSADOR WILLIAM TAYLOR TO SOME EXTREME WEATHER NOW AN ARCTIC BLAST BRINGING BITTER COLD AND SNOW TO THE MIDWEST AS IT CREEPS TOWARDS THE EAST COAST OF HEADING THIS WAY AND THEN IN CHICAGO, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS, THIS PLANE SLIDING OFF AN ICY RUNWAY

>> NO, NO, NO HEATHER: WELCOME BACK THE LONG RUNNING DEBATE OVER PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION TO END THE DREAMER PROGRAM LANDS BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT TODAY FEDERAL COURTS NATIONWIDE HAVE REJECTED EFFORTS TO PHASE OUT THE OBAMA ERA PROGRAM, EVEN THOUGH THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT CALLED DACA UNLAWFUL SO WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE HIGHER COURTS? HERE TO WEIGH IN IS CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ATTORNEY KEN BELLKIN

LET'S BEGIN FIRST WITH THE DOJ AND THEIR LEGAL BRIEF TO THE SUPREME COURT HERE'S WHAT THEY SAID AMONGST OTHER THINGS DHS CORRECTLY AND RESPONSIBLE Y CONCLUDED THAT DACA IS UNLAW >> IT IS WITHIN THE DHS' PURVIEW TO RENDER A DECISION LIKE THAT AND THE DOJ CAN SAY THEY TAKE THE POSITION THAT THAT POSITION IS A LAWFUL ONE CASES WERE BROUGHT IN THREE FEDERAL DISTRICT COURTS IN NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO AND WASHINGTON, D

C AND THEY DEEMED THAT THIS ACTION BY THE ADMINISTRATION WAS ARBITRARY AND CAPRICIOUS AND THE SUPREME COURT WILL HAVE TO HAVE THE FINAL SAY HEATHER: HERE'S WHAT MEXICO IS URGING, THEY'RE URGING THE SUPREME COURT TO STOP PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DACA DECISION, SAYING AMONGST OTHER THINGS MEXICAN NATIONALS RELIED UPON THE COMMITMENTS MADE BY THE US GOVERNMENT IN RELATION TO DACA

DACA RECIPIENTS WOULD BE SUBJECT TO INCREASED VULNERABILITY AS A RESULT OF THE TERMINATION >> THE NATION OF MEXICO IS NOT A PARTY HERE THEY ARE LETTING THE COURT KNOW THEIR POSITION AND THEY ARE POTENTIALLY AN INTERESTED PARTY IN ANY DECISION THE COURT MAKES THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, MEXICO HAS ANOTHER INTEREST THAT THEY MAY NOT HAVE INCLUDED SO PREVALENTLY IN THE BRIEF, IS THAT A LOT OF MONEY IS FLOWING FROM THE UNITED STATES TO MEXICAN NATIONALS, BACK INTO THE ECONOMY OF MEXICO SO THEY'RE KIND OF DEPENDENT ON OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM

HEATHER: THAT'S A GOOD POINT THEY SAY EVERYTHING ALWAYS GOES BACK TO MONEY IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE CASE FOR THE SUPREME COURT WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY WILL DO? >> I THINK THE PROBLEM IS, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FACES A PROBLEM THERE WAS A RULING IN THE CENSUS CASE THAT LIBERALS WILL TRY TO EXPAND UPON WHERE JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS SAID LOOK, THERE HAS TO BE REASONED DECISION MAKING

THEY SAY THAT IS AN EXPANDED OF BURDEN OF PROOF NORMALLY THEY LOOK AT THE GOVERNMENT ACTION, IS IT ARBITRARY AND CAPRICIOUS ROLLING BACK CERTAIN IMMIGRATION FORMS DURING A TIME WHEN WE HAVE A LEGITIMATE IMMIGRATION CRISIS IN THIS COUNTRY, YOU HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, SO IT'S NOT ARBITRARY HEATHER: THEY'LL TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT AS WELL PRESIDENT TRUMP IS EXPECTED TO RELEASE HIS TRANSCRIPT OF HIS FIRST WHAT'S BEING CALLED TANTALIZING ZELENSKY PHONE CALL WITH UKRAINE, IS WHAT WE'RE SAYING

HOW WILL THIS IMPACT THE IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS MOVING FORWARD >> THE LEFT — YOU'RE TALKING TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER VOTED FOR A REPUBLICAN IN HIS LIFE THE LEFT HAS TO FACE THE FACT THERE WAS NO SMOKING GUN IN THE FIRST TRANSCRIPT , THE SECONDCALL, NO EVIDENCE OH CRIME OF MISDEMEANOR THAT'S WHAT'S NEEDED TO IMPEACH HERE
