Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation between Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing the House will initiate a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump following a call POTUS made to the president of Ukraine in July, in which he admitted discussing Joe Biden in the context of fighting "corruption" in the country. “For months now we know that (Pelosi) has been drawn reluctantly to where we are today. Her background played, I think, an important role in her decision…and her background is faith in and devotion to this country of ours,” says Barnicle. Join the conversation here. Only on MSNBC.

2020 presidential candidate Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ), who says his campaign must raise nearly $2 million before the end of the quarter or his presidential candidacy would be essentially over, stops by Morning Joe to talk about his plans to improve the country if he is elected president. Asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle: "Senator Booker, my wife and I we have seven children, we have a couple of grandchildren. I'm concerned about our grandchildren. Why should I send you a hundred dollars or a million dollars? What are you going to do for them?” Listen to Booker’s answer here.

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation about President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee where Democrats—with the exception of House Judiciary Committee majority counsel Barry Berke—struggled to get answers from Lewandowski as to whether he helped President Trump to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. "It was a total clown show...with (the) rare exception, Barry Berke, a skilled prosecutor asking questions of a defendant. Why they allow various members of Congress their five minutes of time on television to ask inane and ludicrous, leading questions of Corey Lewandowski—or anyone else—and not stick...with a skilled, knowledgeable prosecutor. Why they don't do that is beyond me,” says Barnicle about the Democrats. Join the conversation here with MSNBC’s Barnicle, Willie Geist and Ari Melber.

Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle juxtaposes the rallies of Democratic presidential contender Elizabeth Warren and President Donald Trump, after having attended Warren’s rally last night in New York City. “In (Trump’s) speeches and what he tells the crowd, there's an edge of anger and resentment in the crowd in response to what he says. The Warren rallies…are bent on policy, and they are bent on the future—on your future and what we want to do with this country.” Hear more about the candidates’ crowd size, content and inspiration and ideas here.

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough and Mike Barnicle discuss a new New Hampshire poll that indicates several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates—except Sen. Elizabeth Warren—could beat President Donald Trump in a general election. "Elizabeth Warren has run an incredibly great campaign. She was written off earlier this year in the spring, and she's come charging forward. Her rallies are electric. She is specific with her proposals. She does indeed have a plan for most things, but there's a lethal aspect to her campaign…It's things like Medicare-for-all, it's decriminalization along the border, elements like that. She's got to figure out a way to come back to the middle, and that brings you to Joe Biden. That's where he is. That's where he's run his campaign since the day he announced. He's a moderate. This is a moderate country,” says Barnicle about America. Join the conversation here.

Listen in on the Morning Joe conversation with 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg as they discuss the issues facing this country. “You've been going across this country for months now. You've probably picked up that the country is kind of divided—that people are anxious about who we are and about our future as a republic. The country was divided and endangered 51 years ago this summer because men were being killed in a war built on a lie. We survived that in one sense, but the repercussions of that war, I think still exist today. So, if you go through the country, and you think about the political divisions and the cultural divisions that separate us, if you're president of the United States, what do you do about perhaps the number one priority for the next American president: To heal this country?” asks veteran columnist Mike Barnicle. Listen to Buttigieg’s thoughts on unity and healing. Only on MSNBC.

“We have a commander-in-chief—President of the United States—who considers that he can never be wrong about anything, about something so inconsequential as the path of a hurricane to Alabama instead of the natural path that every weather service was telling him. He can never be wrong. So he has to alter reality. That gets into the other really larger and maybe lingering damage: Is there any more truth? What is truth now in this administration?” asks Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle during a discussion with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski about President Donald Trump’s presentation of a doctored version of an official National Hurricane Center map of Hurricane Dorian's path to defend his false claim that Alabama faced a serious threat from the hurricane.

"As an expert on this, are you comfortable with the President of the United States, Donald Trump, sitting down with Kim Jong Un? Is this not a mismatch?” asks Barnicle.

And I think that might be a point of strength for the former Vice President,” says Barnicle. Hear more of the conversation here.

Trump.” Hear more of the conversation about the G7 Summit and Robinson’s latest column on “Trump’s Obama Envy."

You’re going back-to-school shopping for your children, ok, (and) sneakers that cost ninety bucks in June now cost ninety-five bucks because guess what: We're picking up the tab on the tariff, on the trade wars that are so easy to win for Donald Trump,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle on Morning Joe during a conversation with Joe Scarborough about the current status of the U.S. economy.

Says Barnicle: “The President of the United States in where he is speaking about Jewish people in America, American citizens, as if they are a separate category. He’s put them to one side. And he's using them as a political tool because it's all about him. It's all self-involvement, everything that he says is all self-involvement."

This is both outrageous, unbelievable, and it tempts people to thinking that the worst has happened—that government is never on the level; and this is just going to be a full-blown conspiracy cloud that needs to be put to rest immediately,” says Barnicle.

Says Barnicle about President Trump: “His language of license lingers in the air like the smell of cordite around mass shootings. That's a fact. Unfortunately, we will today and we’ve already heard yesterday, one public person after another saying: 'This is not who we are' in speaking of the shootings. The sad fact is: This is who we are. This is actually who we are and who we have become….We have these one-man armies of white nationalists. We live in a nation awash with guns—more than 290 million weapons, but that's just part of it…There is something deeply, deeply wrong in this country.” Join the conversation here.

He has scared people.”
