So I have a huge problem. I have 5 daughters, the oldest which just graduated college. She and my husband(her father) have been fighting a lot. He keeps telling her to leave and move out but with just graduating she has 100,000 in debt. She has a full time job, doesn't go out much,is a very goog girl but sometimes talks back to him. She was also just put on med.for depression. He screams at her all the time and 2 other oldest daughters. Over the weekend they got in a fight and it escalated and he put his hand around her neck and pushed her down on the bed. The other girls were right there screaming and crying. He says she should go . I need help. She is 23 years old but he is her dad

That is exactly what I keep saying and a couple close friends said the same thing. I just wasn't sure because of her age but with four other girls I font want him to think his behavior is o.k. thank you for your response

Dad is abusive. He's damn lucky she hasn't gone to the police and had him arrested for assault. Sorry, but she is not the one with the issue here. Just imagine your daughter were married, and the man she married did that to her. Would you say "but he's her husband"? Of course not!! There is absolutely no excuse for your husband's behaviour, none.

I am not saying that it is okay for her to talk back, because it's not, and you definitely need to discuss that with her. However, your husband has no right to lay a hand on her, period. He needs anger management counselling. He's the one who needs help.
