Swalwell: Absolutely looking at 2020 presidential run


>>Neil: STILL WAITING ON THE PRESS CONFERENCE BY SHERIFF GEOFF DEAN OF THOUSAND OAKS, CALIFORNIA, ON THE SHOOTER AND THE SHOOTING THAT CLAVE’S 1 13. CONGRESSMAN, THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME. WE DO NOT KNOW A LOT. WE DO KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE .45 CALIBER HANDGUN THAT THE SHOOTER USED WAS PURCHASED LEGALLY, BUT THAT THE MAGAZINE, THE EXTENDED MAGAZINE THAT CAN HOLD MORE BULLETS WAS NOT. DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT?>>I DO NOT, NEIL. I WANT TO SAY IS A CALIFORNIAN, AND SOMEBODY WHO HAS BROTHERS WHO ARE WORKING RIGHT NOW, IT IS POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARE GREAT FOR THE FAMILY AND ALSO THAT OFFICER, WHO CHARGED IN THERE NOT KNOWING WHAT HELL WOULD BE COMING HIS WAY. AND BRAVELY SAVED OTHERS, WE ARE MOURNING FOR HIM IN THE 11 OTHER VICTIMS RIGHT NOW.>>Neil: SO MUCH WE DO NOT KNOW, INCLUDING WHAT’S MIGHT HAVE MOTIVATED THE SHOOTER. THERE WAS AN INCIDENT SOME MONTHS BACK WHERE POLICE ARE TRYING TO CALM HIM DOWN. SOME HAVE SAID THAT MAYBE HE HAD POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS. EXPERIENCING IT IN AFGHANISTAN AND ELSEWHERE, HE WAS IN THE MILITARY. WOULD YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT?>>SAME AS YOU DO. I’M VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE FIREARM LAWS AS A FORMER PROSECUTOR. YOU ARE RIGHT, THE MAGAZINE, THE HIGH-CAPACITY MAGAZINE IS NOT ALLOWED. BUT YOU ARE ONLY AS SAFE AS THE STATES AROUND YOU AND THE LAWS THAT THEY HAVE. IN CALIFORNIA BORDERS NEVADA AND ARIZONA AND THEY HAVE MUCH LOOSER THAN RESTRICTIONS. SO YOU CAN SEE HOW THERE ARE VERY POOR SUPPORTERS THAT THEY CAN COME IN TO THE STATE AND BE USED.>>Neil: WE ARE WAITING AGAIN TO GET SOME OF THE DETAILS. I’M SURE THAT YOU ARE EAGER TO GET AS WELL. THERE ARE DEVELOPMENTS IN WASHINGTON THAT THE PRESIDENT APPARENTLY HAS BEEN TALKING TO POTENTIAL PERMANENT REPLACEMENTS FOR JEFF SESSIONS, AS ATTORNEY GENERAL, BEYOND JUST HIS ACTING HEAD MATTHEW WHITAKER. CHRIS CHRISTIE WAS AMONG THOSE MENTIONED, THE HEALTH OF HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY, FORMER AG UNDER GEORGE W. BUSH. EVEN RUDY GIULIANI. ANY OF THOSE NAMES PIQUE YOUR INTEREST OR CONCERN?>>IF IT WAS RUDY GIULIANI, I THINK THAT THERE IS AN INHERENT CONFLICT OF INTEREST. HE IS THE PRESIDENT’S LAWYER. I WOULD BE VERY SURPRISED IF HE WILL BE CONFIRMED. EVEN AS LOYAL AS THE SENATE IS TO THE PRESIDENT, I THINK THAT THAT IS AN OBVIOUS PROBLEM, NEIL. BUT I HOPE THAT AS IT RELATES TO THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION, THE LEAD INVESTIGATOR WOULD BE SOMEONE WHO WOULD TREAT THE PRESIDENT AS HE WOULD TREAT JOHN DOE. A SUSPECT, OR JOHN DOE WITNESS, AND JUST FOLLOW THE EVIDENCE AND NOT COME IN AS MR. WHITAKER HAS WITH PREDRAWN CONCLUSIONS. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE JUST WANT THIS TO BE AN INVESTIGATION JUST LIKE ANY OTHER PERSON ABOUT THE POLITICS ASIDE.>>Neil: DO YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS OF THE PRESIDENT WOULD TRY TO GO AFTER BOB MUELLER OR THE PROBE AT THIS LATE STAGE? I KNOW THAT YOU AND OTHERS HAVE BEEN LEADING AN EFFORT TO TRY TO PROTECT HIM OR SEVERAL LIVE LEGISLATIONS TO PROTECT HIM DO YOU THINK IT IS NECESSARY?>>YES, AND I WISH THAT THE SENATE WOULD PASS IT ON THE FLOOR. WE OF LEGISLATION IN THE HOUSE THAT WE WILL SEEK TO MOVE FORWARD WHEN WE ARE IN THE MAJORITY, AND HOPEFULLY MOMENTUM WOULD BUILD. BUT I THINK IT IS NECESSARY, BECAUSE PAST IS PROLOGUE PRIOR TO THE PRESIDENT HAS FIRED JAMES COMEY AND HAS NOW FIRED JEFF SESSIONS. I THINK THAT IT IS CLEAR.>>Neil: BUT CAN’T THE PRESIDENT TO REJECT THAT OR VETO THAT ANYWAY? AND THEN IT WOULD BE A MOOT POINT?>>IT WOULD BE OVERRIDDEN, I HOPE.>>Neil: YOU NEED TWO-THIRDS TO DO IT.>>WE HAVE OVERRIDDEN PRESIDENTS BEFORE. I WAS A PART OF OVERRIDING BARACK OBAMA ON A VOTE. SO PEOPLE CAN OVERRIDE THE PRESIDENT IN THEIR OWN PARTY. BUT YOU KNOW, IT IS REALLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SPEAKING ON TUESDAY. AND I THINK THAT THEY WANT A BALANCE OF POWER AGAINST ABUSES OF POWER.>>Neil: REALLY QUICKLY, THERE IS A REPORT IN “POLITICO” AND ELSEWHERE THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING A RUN FOR PRESIDENT, ARE YOU?>>I’M GOING TO HAVE TO TALK TO MY MOM AND STOP TALKING TO “POLITICO.”>>Neil: YOU ARE NO STRANGER THERE, ARE YOU LOOKING AT IT?>>ABSOLUTELY I AM LOOKING AT IT. AND I WILL TALK WITH MY FAMILY OVER THE HOLIDAY, BUT I DO THINK, NEIL, ONE LESSON I HAVE TAKEN AWAY FROM THE MIDTERM RESULTS WHEN YOU LOOK AT 25 PEOPLE ELECTED TO WIN THE HOUSE IN THEIR 40s ARE UNDER IS THAT THE COUNTRY IS EMBRACING NEW IDEAS, NEW ENERGY, AND NEW LEADERSHIP.>>Neil: YOU ARE RIGHT IN SAYING THAT THEY DO NOT NECESSARILY WAIT IN LINE. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS SOMETIME IF THE MOMENT IS GOOD, THE MOMENT IS GOOD. WHAT WOULD IT TAKE FOR YOU TO MAKE THE MOVE, YOU HAVE SOME COMPANY, TWO DOZEN PROMINENT DEMOCRATS, INCLUDING YOURSELF THAT WOULD LOOK AT THAT. CAMILLA HARRIS, YOUR SENATOR AS WELL, A HOST OF OTHER CALIFORNIANS, IT WILL BE A CROWDED FIELD.>>IT IS WATKINS ONLY COME ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH EXPERIENCE. I HAVE BEEN IN THE HOUSE FOR SIX YEARS, IT WAS A PROSECUTOR FOR SEVEN YEARS. BEFORE SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. I HAVE KNOWN, WANTED, SEEING HOW HARD MY PARENTS WORKED TO MAKE ME THE FIRST ONE IN MY FAMILY TO GO TO COLLEGE. AND SOMEBODY DEFENDING OUR COUNTRY WHEN IT IS ON THE ROPES. I HAVE BEEN IN THE MIX OF THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION, AND

  1. I personally don't care if Swalwell is grieving or not. Why take the time to do this on the news? Except to take an opportunity to look good. If you care, do some thing for the family. Grieving on the news. Does nothing for there family.

  2. I do hope he runs, and good luck with that! He has been so overly-exposed on TV to all of us sensible people that we already know what he is like and are not impressed.

  3. If he really has brothers that are cops >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>??? interesting thanksgiving dinners I guess. Cause cops do not like this slimy politician .

  4. I think that’s grand idea,,, he needs to run. Lol
    He may be one of the only ones left after the fisa reports start getting opened.
    Trump yet once again,, 3 steps ahead of these nuts!!

  5. The ONLY ones who has abused their power and politicized the FBI/DOJ and State dept , are the DEMOCRATS. Can't wait till Mueller will actually LOOK @ evidence of colluding in 2016 which AGAIN, will only be democrats so let's open it up and charge Hillary/Obama and a FEW in Congress. Perhaps we will have majority in the House when the criminal democrats are charged 🙂

  6. Swallow well? You will not take our constitutional right of keeping and bearing arms which WILL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON

  7. There never was Russian collusion.
    The Democrats are the ones who violated the USA election with voter fraud, and they are working hard now in the state of Florida and Georgia to turn the table on Republican wins by recounting votes in dominant Democratic counties

  8. Everything Trump touches dies. The Kavanaugh family has been destroyed. This Matt Whittaker is a dead man walking.

  9. It sucks in CA demonrat socialists have made it good for the rich and poor and all criminals released from state prisons.

  10. What the American people want, is someone that is authentic, and will keep their word, and that is most definitely NOT Swallowswell. Swallowswell is one of the most deceitful duplicitous Demonrats in congress, and that's saying a lot.

  11. Swalwell is a straight white male. According to democrats, they should all die and therefore not be allowed to run for president.

  12. I think this soulless bacterial wound would make a splendid candidate in 20/20 ,the democrats deserve to be represented by someone who makes used car salesmen and gypsy bitumen driveway resurfacers look like upstanding members of society ,and while I'm at it will someone start a go fund me page to buy Cavuto a new suit.

  13. Awesome, Trump will win for sure, hope he picks Maxine or Pelosi for VP

    Russia investigation, what a crock, better chance of finding Bigfoot

  14. Swalwell for president!!! So funny that republicans think that a corrupt clown like Trump is suitable to be president but not Swalwell who is everything that a president should be.

  15. First the MAGAt bomber and now the shooting in Thousand Oaks Ca. Well the bar is called Borderline and if he was mentally unstable as all donald treason Chump supporters. He thought he crossed the southern borderline and that he was shooting at Mexicans and at people front the caravan. I'm almost sure that is exactly what happened.

  16. This guys on Martha this evening, and this guy is a complete asshole, Martha pointed out tweets he did attacking the President and he danced the cha cha all over it.
    A presidential Run? 😄😂😄😂😄😂

  17. Treat the President like any other person?
    Why didn't Democrats think like that when Obama and Hillary were in office?
    What a joke, now they're playing "we shouldn't have a two tiered justice card"

    But Obama and Hillary broke laws and lied for 8 years. Pffffff.
    And they will go down, they're trying so hard to screw this President by any means necessary because he's going after them and they know it!!

  18. Rep. Swalwell, With all due respect Sir, leave our Second Amendment ALONE! We, the Silent Majority and, law abiding gun owners will NOT allow you nor any other "Politician" infringe on our Rights to keep and bear weapons! You are spending tax payers dollars left and right, wasting our tax dollars on a Democrat "Wet Dream" that is NOT going to be allowed to happen! This is your Folly Sir!

    YOU work for US, not the other way around. You Sir took an Oath of Office to preserve and PROTECT our Constitution and Bill of Rights! Kindly DO YOUR JOB.

  19. america should split the dumb part and the smart part apart let the wifebeatin poor saps who love a millionaire who cares nothing for them with a kindergarden level education have the south

  20. All political and religious totalitarians like MR. Stalwell are by DEFINITION enemies and national security threats to ALL free nations and do NOT belong in ANY free nation much less in positions of power or authority

  21. Eric please run.. I would love to see another liberal looser dirt bag like you… lose against Trump in 2020..All liberals are dirt bags they belong in the garbage dumpsters…..

  22. Swallow is the biggest dummy on the dems side and that is sayin a lot for him to be the biggest dem dummy
    He shud run. Trump will chew him up day 1

  23. This hypocritical twink bizarrely pushes for President Trump to testify in front of congress (which would be unprecedented) for transparency purposes ("if he has nothing to hide why not testify?) even though he's been investigated ad nauseam for 2+ years. Yet Rep. Smallballs here refuses to be transparent about himself and refuses to answer questions regarding sexual assault claims and if he paid out using taxpayer money.

  24. Hey swollowswell you won’t even make the primary you are quite possibly the stupidest person on the ticket . Everything that comes out of your mouth also comes out of my asshole!!!!!!!!

  25. Thanks for running making the dems look even more disorganized. Notice all the sleepy fools on the left have the same message. Nothing new that’s for sure.
