Nunes: Biden admitted he did the very thing Trump is accused of doing


STEVE: OKAY. SO THERE IS THE PRESIDENT YESTERDAY, HE WAS BRINGING REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN FROM THE GREAT STATE OF CALIFORNIA, DEVIN NUNES. RANKING MEMBER OF THE HOUSE INTEL COMMITTEE. SIR, GREAT TO HAVE YOU. THIS STORY ABOUT THE BIDENS HAS BEEN PERCOLATING, YOU KNOW, JUST BELOW THE SURFACE IN WASHINGTON FOR A WHILE.>>THAT’S RIGHT. IT’S THE ONLY THE LEAST BEST KEPT SECRET IN WASHINGTON. JOHN SOLOMON FROM THE HILL HAS HAD THIS FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS. NUMEROUS STORIES ABOUT IT. RUDY GIULIANI HAS BEEN ON EVERY MAINSTREAM MEDIA NEWS SHOW SEVERAL MONTHS AGO. UKRAINES HAVE BEEN COMING TO CONGRESS MEETING WITH NUMEROUS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. THEY CLAIM THEY HAVE DOCUMENTS THAT WE WOULD HAVE AN INTEREST IN THAT RELATE TO THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION AS IT RELATES TO THIS BLACK LEDGER, SOME PEOPLE HAVE HEARD OF THIS AND THEY CLAIM THAT’S DISINFORMATION. AND THEY ALSO CLAIM THAT THIS CONTRACT WITH BIDEN’S SON WAS A PROBLEM. SO, THE IDEA THAT YOU FAST FORWARD ALL THE WAY TO LATE JULY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD HAVE SOME CONVERSATION TRYING TO PRESSURE THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT DOESN’T ADD UP. BECAUSE EVERYONE KNEW IT INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT’S OWN PERSONAL LAWYER RUDY GIULIANI. BRIAN: THE QUESTION IS GOING TO THE “THE WASHINGTON POST.” THE WHISTLEBLOWER EVIDENTLY IS SPEAKING TO SOMEBODY WHILE IS HE WAITING TO FIND OUT IF HE CAN SPEAK TO YOUR COMMITTEE, ADAM SCHIFF NOW CHAIRS. HE SAID 8 TIMES THE PRESSURE — THE PRESIDENT BROUGHT IT UP. AND, IN TURN, MYSTERIOUSLY THE AID, BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WAS HELD UP TO UKRAINE MYSTERIOUSLY BETWEEN JULY AND AUGUST. THEY WONDER IF THERE WAS A LINK. WOULD IT BOTHER IF YOU THERE WAS A LINK BETWEEN THAT?>>WELL, I THINK IT IS VERY TOUGH TO SPECULATE. BUT I WANT TO GO BACK AND JUST, YOU KNOW, REITERATE WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT. THE UKRAINIANS WERE TRYING TO GIVE US THIS INFORMATION THERE WOULD BE NO REASON WHY — THEY JUST WANT TO GIVE IT TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN OUR GOVERNMENT ACE UNDERSTOOD IT. SO, IN THE RIGHT PLACE TO SEND THAT INFORMATION WOULD BE THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. AINSLEY: AMERICANS ARE NOT — WE DON’T TRUST OTHER COUNTRIES. UKRAINE, CAN WE EVEN TRUST WHAT THEY SAY. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THIS MAN WHO IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. HE WAS OUR VICE PRESIDENT. HE HAS ADMITTED ON CAMERA THAT HE WANTED TO FIRE THIS PROSECUTOR. HE ENDED UP FIRING HIM WITHIN SEVERAL HOURS. AND THEN HE SAYS HE NEVER TALKED TO HIS SON ABOUT HIS SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS ENDEAVORS. BUT THEN HIS SON TELLS THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE YES, I DID TALK TO MY DAD ABOUT IT ONCE. WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH AND WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? ISN’T THAT THE REAL ABUSE OF POWER OR IS THE PRESIDENT HAVING THIS CONVERSATION?>>WELL, THE VERY THING THEY ARE ACCUSING PRESIDENT TRUMP OF DOING, BIDEN DID. AND ADMITTED THAT HE DID. SO, AND I JUST GO BACK TO IT, WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? THIS IS A WHISTLE BLOWER AS YOU SAID, BRIAN, THAT SUPPOSEDLY WANTS TO REMAIN SECRET. YET, ALL HIS SECRETS, HIS OR HER SECRETS ARE SPILLING OUT IN THE PAGES OF THE “NEW YORK TIMES,” “THE WASHINGTON POST,” NBC NEWS. WE HAVE NO IDEA. THIS COULD NOT EVEN BE ABOUT UKRAINE. WE HAVE SEEN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. WE GOT BRIEFED LAST WEEK FROM THE ICIG CAME AND MET WITH US. DIDN’T TELL US ANY INFORMATION. SO WE ARE SUPPOSED TO MEET WITH WEEK WITH THE ACTING D&I. MAYBE WE WILL GET MORE INFORMATION URGE. BRIAN: THIS IS WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS REFERRING. TO SAY KNOW HE WHAT THE CONVERSATION WAS ABOUT. I THINK THERE WAS NO PRESSURE. THIS CONVERSATION WAS LONG. IT WAS FRIENDLY. IT TOUCHED ON MANY QUESTIONS, SOMETIMES REQUIRING SERIOUS ANSWERS. THEY ARE CONCERNED BECAUSE UKRAINIANS NEED OUR MONEY SO MUCH AND SUPPORT SO MUCH THEY DON’T WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN AMERICAN POLITICS.>>RIGHT. BRIAN: THEY ARE FRONT AND CENTER. BIG STORY WITH UKRAINE IS PRESIDENT OBAMA LET THEM GET CAUGHT UP WITH THE RUSSIANS AND GAVE THEM BLANKETS AND MREs AND THIS PRESIDENT GAVE THEM LETHAL WEAPONS TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.>>NO ONE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT RUSSIA UNTIL AFTER HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION. OF THE REPUBLICANS ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE AND IN THE HOUSE WERE PRESSURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, HEY, HERE IS MONEY. GET WEAPONS TO THE UKRAINIANS THEY DIDN’T CARE ABOUT RUSSIA UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN RAUSH WAS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET. I THINK WHAT THIS ULTIMATELY AMOUNTS TO YOU SEE BIDEN IS FLAILING, I THINK, IN THE POLLS. ALMOST LOOKS LIKE SOME TYPE 6 POLITICAL OPERATION. DOESN’T IT FEEL LIKE THE RUSSIA HOAX ALL OVER AGAIN? ALMOST LIKE THE UKRAINIAN HOAX. STEVE: WHAT ABOUT THE WHISTLE BLOWER APPARENTLY THE STORY IS ON FRIDAY WE ALL PRESUMED THAT THIS WAS SOMEBODY WHO HAD ACTUALLY HEARD THE PRESIDENT SAY IT OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT. NOW IT HAS BEEN REVEALED. I THINK CNN REVEALED APPARENTLY THIS PARTICULAR PERSON HAD NO DIRECT KNOWLEDGE OF IT.>>RIGHT. STEVE: ALMOST SOUNDED LIKE HE HAD HEARD SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING. BRIAN: HE HAD A CUP AGAINST THE WALL. STEVE: NOW HIS COMPLAINT IS THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT AND THAT’S WHY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SAYS NO IT DOESN’T RISE TO THE LEVEL WHERE YOU AND CONGRESS WOULD WIND UP SAYING IT?>>ONE OF THE THINGS I SAID YESTERDAY IF CONGRESS GETS TO LISTEN IN AND READ TRANSCRIPTS OF THE PRESIDENT’S TALKING, I MEAN, I’M ALL FOR IT BUT I WANT TO START WITH WHAT DID BIDEN SAY TO THE UKRAINIANS? WHAT DID OBAMA SAY TO PUTIN? AINSLEY: PRESIDENT SAID I WANT TO RELEASE THE TRANSCRIPTS THE QUESTION IS COUNTY WORLD LEADERS TRUST ME? I NEED TO HAVE ARE CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM THERE IS A FINE LINE THERE. BRIAN: REMEMBER WHEN JULIAN ASSANGE LET ALL THOSE STATE DEPARTMENT CABLES OUT HOW EMBARRASSING IT WAS?>>REMEMBER, THE PRESIDENT HAD — REMEMBER, HE HAD HIS TRANSCRIPTS WITH THE MEXICAN PRIME MINISTER LEAK OUT. AND THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER LEAK OUT. SO THIS WOULD JUST BE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THAT WHERE PIECES OF HIS PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS ARE LEAKING OUT ALL OVER. BRIAN: GUESS WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE DOING. TALKING IMPEACHMENT. HERE ARE THE DEMOCRATS LETTING US KNOW WE HAVE NO CHOICE. LISTEN.>>THIS WOULD BE THE MOST PROFOUND VIOLATION OF THE PRESIDENTIAL OATH OF OFFICE. THERE IS NO PRIVILEGE THAT COVERS CORRUPTION.>>WE KNOW THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EQUIVALENCE BETWEEN HUNTER BIDEN AND JOE BIDEN AND WHAT THIS PRESIDENT IS — HAS POTENTIALLY DONE. WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH IMPEACHMENT. NOT EVEN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY AT THIS POINT. WE ARE BEYOND THAT WE ARE AT IMPEACHMENT, PERIOD.>>EVERYBODY WANTS TO IMPEACH BUT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT FOR. I WILL GO BACK, TO WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS WHISTLEBLOWER HAS EVEN IF HE HAS ANYTHING. BRIAN: MICHAEL HOROWITZ IS ABOUT TO COME OUT WITH HIS REPORT. DID HE AT THIS DID HE TT THIS DID HE TIPTHIS DID HE TIP YIS DID HE TIP YOU OFF WHAT COULD BE IN IT AND WHAT WE SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON.>>REMEMBER, HOUSE REPUBLICANS ON THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE ALREADY SURMISED AND CAME OUT WITH A REPORT THAT THERE WAS FISA ABUSE. SO WE KNOW THERE WAS FISA ABUSE. THE ONLY QUESTION IS THERE WAS FOUR RENEWALS ON IT. FOUR SEPARATE TIMES THEY WENT TO THE FISA COURT. WE BELIEVE ALL FOUR OF THOSE WERE FRAUDULENT. WE HOPE THAT THERE IS NEW EVIDENCE THAT WHO ARE WIGHTS IS ABLE TO GET IS, YOU KNOW, WHEN DID THIS INVESTIGATION BEGIN? WHEN DID THEY FIRST TAKE THIS TO THE FISA COURT? AND WAS THERE A CONSPIRACY INVOLVED? WHO WAS INVOLVED IN PUTTING ALL OF THIS TOGETHER BECAUSE ULTIMATELY WE WANT TO SEE PEOPLE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS HERE. STEVE: BEFORE YOU LEAVE. GIVEN ALL OF THIS NEWS ABOUT UKRAINE. DO YOU THINK THAT THAT COULD ACTUALLY BE REALLY BAD NEWS FOR JOE BIDEN AND SPELL THE END OF HIS CAMPAIGN?>>I JUST HAVE TO THINK THAT NONE OF THIS IS HELPING JOE BIDEN AT ALL. HIS LEAD — HE STARTED IN THE HIGH 30’S. IF YOU LOOK AT ALL THE EARLY STATES, IS HE BASICALLY EITHER TIED OR BEHIND. WHETHER THAT’S IOWA,CALIFORNIA, SO I DON’T THINK IT LOOKS GOOD FOR HIM. AND LOOK. AINSLEY: PROGRESSIVE RUNNING
