BILL HEMMER (CO-ANCHOR): You heard the news from Nancy Pelosi. Forecast this for us. How does it play out, do you think?

MATT WHITAKER (FORMER ACTING U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL): Well, it appears an impeachment fever has affected the Dems in the House, and they're going to ignore what the evidence shows. They're going to ignore an ability to get more evidence and to use the legitimate constitutional process of all three branches — who are co-equal and independent — and they're going to move forward. And it's really a sad day for America. It is, I think, going to, you know, hurt people's Christmas experience, because this is going to be playing in the background. Instead of Bing Crosby's Christmas album, we're going to have impeachment en vogue.

HEMMER: That's the way it was in 1998, because they voted on December 19.
