AS YOU SAID IN YOUR TWEETS ANOTHER SLOW “NEWSWEEK.” START WITH THE FACT THAT THE STORY GRIFF BROUGHT US, SOUNDS A FORMER FBI LAWYER IT SOUNDS LIKE WAS DOING SOMETHING WITH THE FISA APPLICATION. THAT PERSON GOT REMOVED. AND THIS GOES TO YOUR ARGUMENT THAT SOMEBODY AT THE FBI WAS OUT TO GET YOU, RIGHT?>>WELL IT CERTAINLY DOES. THEY WERE SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN AND IT WENT UP TO THE TOP AND EVERYBODY KNOWS IT AND NOW WE’RE GOING TO FIND OUT. “BULL DURHAM” IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE TOUGHEST I NEVER MET HIM OR SPOKE TO HIM. HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE SMARTEST AND BEST. HE WORKS FOR BILL BARR A GREAT ATTORNEY GENERAL. WE MAY HAVE ENDED THIS THING A LOT SOONER HAD HE BEEN THERE ORIGINALLY BUT YOU HAVE SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE GREAT PEOPLE NOW. PATRIOTIC PEOPLE, THEY LOVE OUR COUNTRY. AND THIS WAS SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN, SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. THIS WAS AN OVERTHROW ATTEMPT AT THE PRESIDENCY. THEY TRIED TO OVERTHROW THE PRESIDENCY. THIS IS A DISGRACE. I’M NOT SURPRISED TO SEE IT. IT IS JUST STARTING TO COME UP. I THINK THIS IS NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT YOU WILL SEE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS. THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK. AINSLEY: THEY SAY THE FBI LAWYER ALTERED KEY DOCUMENTS TO THE WARRANT APPLICATION SO THEY COULD GET PERMISSION TO SURVEIL CARTER PAGE. HE WAS ON “MORNINGS WITH MARIA” A FEW MOMENTS AGO. HE SAYS IT’S A COVERUP. LISTEN.>>THEY HAVE JUST BEEN PUTTING FALSE INFORMATION OUT THERE TO THE MEDIA. THE DEMOCRATS AND THEIR ALLIES IN, WASHINGTON AND THE MEDIA, CONSTANTLY PUSHING LIES AFTER LIES. FINALLY THIS GETS PICKED UP BY A COURT. IT GETS PICKED UP BY THE COMEY McCABE FBI AND THEY TO THE A WARRANT, A FRAUDULENT WARRANT I BELIEVE TO SPY ON MYSELF AS A WAY OF GETTING INTO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. THERE HAS BEEN A CONTINUED COVERUP TO THIS VERY DAY. WE STILL DON’T HAVE THE TRUTH BUT HOPEFULLY WE’LL GET THAT SOON. AINSLEY: HOW DOES THAT COMPARE WITH WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE UKRAINE CONVERSATION? DEMOCRATS WANT TO IMPEACH YOU BECAUSE OF THAT CONVERSATION BUT THIS LOOKS PRETTY BAD?>>SO MY CONVERSATION WAS A PERFECT CONVERSATION. THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT SAID, WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT? THEY MUST THINK WE’RE NUTS IN THIS COUNTRY. THIS CONVERSATION WAS FLAWLESS T WAS APPROPRIATE. IT WAS PERFECT. IT WAS NICE. IT WAS EVERYTHING AND THEY EVEN SAID THAT. THEY CAME OUT AND SAID IT. COMPARE THAT, AS THEY TRY TO IMPEACH. BY THE WAY THEY LOOKED LIKE FOOLS OVER THE LAST FIVE DAYS. THESE INTERVIEWS, THESE WERE THEIR WITNESSES. THIS WAS THE BEST THEY HAVE GOT. ADAM SCHIFF IS A SICK PUPPY. HE IS A, IT HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE. WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO SEE I PREDICT WILL BE PERHAPS THE BIGGEST SCANDAL IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY, POLITICAL SCANDAL BUT I GUESS THAT IS THE BIGGEST. WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT THAN POLITICAL WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. BRIAN: WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?>>I THINK YOU WILL SEE THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE IF IT IS DONE RIGHT. I PURPOSELY STAY OUT. I TELL BILL BARR TO HANDLE EVERYTHING. I WOULDN’T HAVE TO. I COULD GET VERY MUCH INVOLVED BUT I PURPOSELY DON’T. I HAVEN’T, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? IT IS BETTER THAT WAY I GUESS. I DON’T HAVE ANY OBLIGATION LEGALLY TO DO THAT BUT I HAVE LET THEM HANDLE IT. YOU HAVE A FISA REPORT COMING OUT WHICH THE WORD IS, IT’S HISTORIC, THAT IS WHAT THE WORD IS. THAT’S WHAT I HEAR AND IF IT’S HISTORIC YOU WILL SEE SOMETHING. PERHAPS EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY YOU HAVE DURHAM, COMING OUT, SHORTLY THEREAFTER. HE IS THE U.S. ATTORNEY AND HE IS ALREADY ANNOUNCED IT IS CRIMINAL. AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. BUT I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, YOU HAVE A LOT OF VERY, VERY BAD PEOPLE. YOU KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY DEEP STATE. I DON’T LIKE TO USE THE WORD DEEP STATE. I SAY THEY’RE REALLY BAD, SICK, PEOPLE. STEVE: MR. PRESIDENT YOU SAY IT COULD BE HISTORIC. YOU HAVE SUGGESTED IN THE PAST THIS MIGHT GO MUCH HIGHER THAN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE OR THE FBI. DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. ARE YOU SUGGESTING IT COULD ACTUALLY GO UP INTO THE WEST WING OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION?>>WHAT YOU’RE DEALING AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. THEY WERE SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN. THIS IS MY OPINION. I SAID IT A LONG TIME. REMEMBER WHEN I PUT OUT A TWEET AND I TALKED ABOUT THE WIRETAPPING IN QUOTES, MEETING MODERN-DAY VERSION WHATEVER WIRETAPPING MAY BE. AND ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. STEVE: HOW HIGH DID IT GO MR. PRESIDENT? HOW HIGH DID IT GO?>>I THINK PERSONALLY IT WENT ALL THE WAY. STEVE: TO BARACK OBAMA?>>FOR BRENNAN, CLAPPER, ALL THESE LOSERS THAT YOU HAD OVER THERE. I THINK IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO BE DOING THINGS AND LET’S SEE WHAT IT ALL SAYS. IT’S IMPOSSIBLE — SUSAN RICE THE PERSON THAT WORKED AT THE UNITED NATIONS WHO WENT AFTER FISA REPORTS AND WENT AFTER REPORTS LIKE SHE ATE THEM FOR LUNCH. LOOK AT THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION THEY WENT LIKE A FEW. SHE WAS GETTING THEM AT LEVELS NOBODY EVEN IMAGINED BEFORE. IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HER. NO, I THINK THIS GOES TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL. I HATE TO SAY IT. I THINK IT’S A DISGRACE. THEY THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO WIN. THEY SAID, HOW CAN WE STOP HIM? THEY WROTE UP THE PHONY, FAKE DOSSIER, THE PHONE DISGUSTING FAKE DOSSIER. TO SHOW YOU HOW INCOMPETENT THEY WERE? THEY PAID MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AND HILLARY CLINTON AND DEMOCRATS. A LOT HAD TO DO THEY SAY WITH UKRAINE. IT IS VERY INTERESTING, IT IS VERY INTERESTING, THEY HAVE THE SERVER FROM THE DNC. DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE. BRIAN: WHO HAS THE SERVER?>>THE FBI CAME IN, TOLD THEM GET OUT OF HERE. WE’RE NOT GIVING IT TO YOU. THEY GAVE THE SERVER TO CLOUD STRIKE IT IS CALLED AND A COMPANY OWNED BY A WEALTHY UKRAINIAN. I WANT TO SEE THE SERVER. THE FBI DIDN’T GET A HOLD OF THAT SERVER. STEVE: ARE YOU SURE THEY GAVE IT TO UKRAINE?>>THAT IS WHAT THE WORD IS. THAT IS WHAT I ASKED IN MY.CALL AS YOU KNOW. I ASK THED POINT-BLANK. WE’RE LOOKING FOR TREMENDOUS CORRUPTION. WE’RE LOOKING FOR CORRUPTION. WHY SHOULD WE BE GIVING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO COUNTRIES WHEN THERE IS THIS KIND OF CORRUPTION. IF YOU LOOK AT MY CALL, I SAID CORRUPTION. HE SAID IT TO ME. HE IS LOOKING. HE GOT ELECTED ON THE BASIS OF CORRUPTION. ALSO BY THE WAY, GOING BACK TO THAT, WHY ISN’T GERMANY PUTTING UP MONEY? WHY ISN’T FRANCE PUTTING UP MONEY? WHY ISN’T ALL THE EUROPEAN NATIONS, WHY AREN’T THEY PUTTING UP? YOU HAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION, THEY’RE BENEFIT AD LOT MORE BY UKRAINE THAN WE ARE. BRIAN: MR. PRESIDENT CAN I ASK YOU –>>WHY AREN’T THEY PUTTING UP MONEY? HOW COME ALWAYS THE UNITED STATES THAT PUTS UP MONEY? THE SUCKERS, WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE UNITED STATES? THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS I ASKED. I CONTINUED TO ASK THEM. BRIAN: THAT’S TRUE. MR. PRESIDENT, BEST YOU CAN, I KNOW YOU SAID THAT FROM DAY ONE ABOUT WIRETAPPING, YOU FELT AS THOUGH THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION BASICALLY SEEMS TO HAVE SET YOU UP TO REALLY STRUGGLE FOR THE FIRST THREE YEARS. WHO IS YOUR SOURCE, WHAT ARE YOUR SOURCES THAT ARE TELLING YOU THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS OUT TO REALLY HURT YOUR ADMINISTRATION?>>WELL FIRST OF ALL, BRIAN, I HAVEN’T STRUGGLED BECAUSE I’VE DONE MORE IN THE PERCENT 2 1/2 YEARS THAN ANY PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALMOST EVERYBODY ADMITS IT. BETWEEN REBUILDING OUR MILITARY, THE BIGGEST TAX CUT IN HISTORY. BRIAN: OKAY. WOULD YOU SAY THEY HAVE BEEN IN YOUR WAY? WOULD YOU SAY THEY HAVE BEEN IN YOUR WAY.>>SUPREME COURT — WAIT A SECOND, TWO SUPREME COURT JUSTICES. WITHIN A FEW WEEKS WE’LL HAVE 182 FEDERAL JUDGES. IT’S A RECORD. I HAVE DONE MORE THAN ANYBODY EVER HAD IN THE POSITION IN A SHORT TIME. THEY HAVEN’T MADE IT PLEASANT. BAD PEOPLE. THEY HURT A LOT OF INNOCENT PEOPLE. PEOPLE CAME DOWN HERE GOT SERVED SUBPOENAS BY MUELLER AND CREW. THEY WENT THROUGH 2 1/2 YEARS. FOUND NOTHING. WHEN YOU SAY THAT, I THINK WE’VE HAD THE MOST PRODUCTIVE PRESIDENCY EVER FOR THE FIRST 2 1/2 YEARS BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT WAS PLEASANT. BRIAN: I KNOW, MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN CLEARER. MY POINT IS THIS, I KNOW YOU HAVE HAD THE POINT OF VIEW AND SOME THINGS ARE COMING THAT DIRECTION TO PROVE IT BUT WHO IS YOUR SOURCE THAT’S TELLING YOU THIS?>>I CAN’T TELL YOU THAT. I CAN ONLY SAY THAT WE HAVE A LOT OF INFORMATION THAT A LOT OF BAD THINGS HAPPENED. WHEN YOU LOOK AT STRZOK AND PAGE WITH THE INSURANCE POLICY WHERE, YOU KNOW, THE TWO LOVERS, THE TWO GREAT LOVERS FROM THE FBI, WHERE HE IS SAYING, OH, SHE IS GOING TO WIN 100 MILLION TO NOTHING, JUST IN CASE SHE LOSES WE HAVE AN INSURANCE POLICY. THAT MEANS, YOU KNOW, WE’RE GOING TO TAKE HIM DOWN. WE’LL TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT. YOU WOULDN’T EVEN BELIEVE THIS IS POSSIBLE BUT THE INSURANCE POLICY, THAT WAS A VERY BIG FIND, FINDING THAT TEXT. THE ONLY REASON WE FOUND IT BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT TO USE THEIR PRIVATE SERVERS FOR A VERY BAD REASON, OKAY? THEY USED PUBLIC SERVER. THEY USED THE FBI SERVER. HERE IS THE THING, WE HAVE SOME, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS COMING OUT, OKAY, THE INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE NOW IS BEYOND BELIEF ALREADY. BUT WHAT THEY HAVE COMING OUT I HEAR IS IS HISTORIC. THAT IS THE WAY IT WAS EXPLAINED. IT IS HISTORIC. NOW, OF COURSE. AINSLEY: MR. PRESIDENT –>>THE FAKE NEWS WILL TRY AND DOWN PLAY IT. I DON’T THINK YOU CAN DOWN PLAY IT. DEMOCRATS AND FAKE NEWS, THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME. THEY WILL DOWNPLAY IT. WHEN I SEE THE HEARINGS, WE HAVE A GREAT DAY, PICK UP THE PHONY “NEW YORK TIMES” WHICH IS A PHONY TOTAL PAPER I DON’T READ HE IT ANYMORE. YOU CAN’T READ IT. IT HAS NO RELATIONSHIP TO THE TRUTH. AND YOU READ A STORY THAT TOOK PLACE AND THEY DON’T TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED. THEY ONLY PUT IN THE BAD, THEY DON’T PUT IN THE GOOD. SAME THING WITH “WASHINGTON POST.” IT’S A PHONY PAPER. WE DON’T EVEN HAVE IT IN THE WHITE HOUSE. WE SAVED A LOT OF MONEY. AINSLEY: WHEN WE’RE WATCHING THOSE CLOSING ARGUMENTS YESTERDAY, ADAM SCHIFF, DEMOCRATS LOVE IT. I’M SURE HE GETTING PATTED ON THE BACK EVERY TIME HE WALKS DOWN THE HALLS IN WASHINGTON PEOPLE ARE SAYING KEEP PUSHING KEEP PUSHING WE WANT IMPEACHMENT BUT IF YOU ASK REPUBLICANS WE’LL PLAY A SOUND BITE OF THE CLOSE ARGUMENTS. THEY SHEA THIS IS ALL THEATRICS. WATCH THIS. WE’LL GET YOUR REACTION.>>OKAY.>>IT CAME DOWN TO THE FACT THAT THE DAY AFTER BOB MUELLER — TESTIFIED, DAY AFTER BOB MUELLER TESTIFIED, DONALD TRUMP INVITED RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE, RUSSIA IF YOU’RE LISTENING COME GET HILLARY’S EMAILS, LATER THAT DAY THEY TRIED TO HACK HER SERVER. THE DAY AFTER THAT, DONALD TRUMP IS BACK ON THE PHONE ASKING ANOTHER NATION TO INVOLVE ITSELF IN ANOTHER U.S. ELECTION. THAT SAYS TO ME THIS PRESIDENT BELIEVES HE IS ABOVE THE LAW, I DON’T KNOW ACCOUNTABILITY. AINSLEY: MR. PRESIDENT, WAS THERE QUID PRO QUO, EXTORTION, BRIBERY?>>NO, NOT AT ALL AND LET ME TELL YOU HE IS A SICK PUPPY. HE IS SO SICK. THIS GUY, I’VE BEEN GOING THROUGH IT 2 1/2 YEARS ABOUT RUSSIA. I’VE BEEN TOUGHER ON RUSSIA THAN ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY BUT FOR 2 1/2 YEARS I HAD TO LISTEN. THIS WAS THEIR TALKING POINT, TRUMP AND RUSSIA. IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT IT, JUST LOOK AT THE FACTS. EVEN LOOK WHAT I’VE DONE FOR UKRAINE BY GIVING THEM TANK BUSTERS, GIVING THEM STUFF, OBAMA WOULD SEND PILLOWS AND SHEETS, HE WOULDN’T SEND ANYTHING ELSE. THE WHOLE THING, NOW, SCHIFF, REMEMBER THIS, HE MAKES IT ALL UP. HE’S SICK. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIM. SO HE MADE UP MY PHONE CALL. HE MADE IT UP. HE MADE UP A PHONE CALL AND THEN WHEN I RELEASED IT, EVERYBODY WAS EMBARRASSED. CRAZY NANCY PELOSI, WHO BY THE WAY IS GOING TO GO DOWN AS THE WORST SPEAKER IN THE HISTORY OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, SHE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING. ALL SHE, SHE IS LIKE PARALYZED. SHE CANNOT DO ANYTHING. STEVE: MR. PRESIDENT –>>I PREDICT SHE WOULDN’T DO USMCA. RICHARD TRUMKA, GOOD GUY, BIG UNION GUY, ONLY CARES ABOUT A UNION. RICHARD TRUMKA HAS HER MORTIFIED. SHE WON’T DO USMCA. EVERYBODY IN THE COUNTRY WANTS IT, FARMERS MANUFACTURERS. RICHARD TRUMKA PLAYS HER LIKE A FIDDLE. I PREDICT SHE WON’T EVEN DO IT. SHE HAS SUCH PRESSURE ON HER TO DO IT. ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS PUT IT TO A VOTE. SHE IS HOLDS IT ON HER DESK SIX MONTHS, THERE IS DUST ON. MEXICO CANADA, WHERE IS OUR AGREEMENT. STEVE: MR. PRESIDENT, COUPLE DAYS AGO YOUR AMBASSADOR TO THE EU, MR. SONDLAND, IN HIS OPENING STATEMENT SAID THAT THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO. THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO HE SAID BECAUSE YOU WANTED AN INVESTIGATION INTO CORRUPTION IN EXCHANGE FOR A VISIT TO THE WHITE HOUSE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.>>YEAH. WELL, THAT IS TOTAL NONSENSE. I DO WANT ALWAYS CORRUPTION, SAY THAT TO ANYBODY, WHY SHOULD WE GIVE MONEY TO A COUNTRY KNOWN CORRUPT? IT’S A VERY CORRUPT COUNTRY. I LOVE THE PEOPLE UKRAINE. I KNOW UKRAINIAN PEOPLE. THEY’RE GREAT PEOPLE, BUT KNOWN AS BEING THE THIRD MOST CORRUPT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. NOW WITH THIS GUY, WHO BY THE WAY I HARDLY KNOW HIM, OKAY? BRIAN: SONDLAND?>>I HAVE SPOKEN TO HIM A FEW TIMES. HOW ABOUT THE GUY WITH THE TELEPHONE? I GUARRANTY YOU THAT NEVER TOOK PLACE. HE WAS LISTENING TO ME. I SPOKE SO FEW TIMES TO HIM. THE GUY YESTERDAY ON THE TELEPHONE, DAVID HOLMES, YES I HEARD THE CONVERSATION. I HAVE REALLY GOOD HEARING. I’VE BEEN WATCHING GUYS 40 YEARS MAKE PHONE CALLS AND I CAN’T HEAR, YOU COULD BE TWO FEET AWAY I CAN’T HEAR PEOPLE MAKING CALLS. I CAN’T HEAR THE OTHER SIDE. THE PHONE IS UP IN THE EAR UNLESS YOU HAVE IT ON SPEAKER PHONE YOU CAN’T DO IT. BRIAN: RIGHT.>>THAT WAS A TOTAL PHONY DEAL. THAT WAS A PHONE — CALL IT DEEP STATE. CALL IT ANTI-TRUMP PEOPLE. STEVE: MR. PRESIDENT, YOUR AMBASSADOR SAID THERE WAS QUID PRO QUO, BECAUSE YOU WANTED AN INVESTIGATION INTO CORRUPTION BUT IT INVOLVED JOE BIDEN AND HUNTER BIDEN. THEN IT BECOMES LIKE LOOK, HE IS GOING AFTER DIRT ON THE BIDENS BECAUSE JOE BIDEN COULD BE HIS OPPONENT. IN 2020.>>FIRST OF ALL THAT’S NOT TRUE. NUMBER ONE, IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE. THEN YOU HAVE TO SAY — STEVE: WHICH PART?>>YOU HAVE TO SAY JOE BIDEN IS CORRUPT. IT IS NOT TRUE WHAT HE SAID. NOW WHAT HE SAID ALSO IS, THERE WAS NO QUID PROQUOTE. I WANT NOTHING IT WAS TRENDING NUMBER ONE, I WANT NOTHING, HE SAID THAT WHEN HE WAS QUESTIONED. CHECK OUT HIS LAWYERS, THEY ARE HILLARY CLINTON LAWYERS. THEY ARE HILLARY CLINTON LAWYERS, DEMOCRATS. BRIAN: SONDLAND.>>SONDLAND. HE IS THERE WITH CLINTON LAWYERS. THEY’RE PASSING HIM NOTES ALL THE TIME. HE DIDN’T PUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PHRASE IN HIS 22-PAGE STATEMENT THAT HE READ. THE MOST IMPORTANT PHRASE WAS, I WANT NOTHING, TWICE I SAID IT, I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NOTHING. I WANT NO QUID PRO QUO. HAVE PRESIDENT ZELENSKY DO WHATEVER’S RIGHT, SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. AND THEY DIDN’T PUT THAT IN. THAT WAS THE END OF HIM. I SAID TURN OFF THE TELEVISION. THAT IS WHAT HE SAID. NOW, WITH ALL OF THAT, OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT CORRUPTION. ARE WE GOING TO BE SENDING MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO A COUNTRY AND THEY’RE CORRUPT AND THEY STEAL THE MONEY AND IT GOES INTO EVERYBODY’S BANK ACCOUNT? SO YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT JOE BIDEN, BUT I NEVER SAID IT SPECIFICALLY ON HIM BUT I WATCHED JOE BIDEN WITH THE PROSECUTOR, WHO A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID WAS A GREAT PROSECUTOR, THEY TOOK HIM OFF, HE WAS PROSECUTING THAT COMPANY. AND THE KID WHO NEVER MADE 10 CENTS IN HIS LIFE, ALL OF SUDDEN IS MAKING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THE DAY HE, I MEAN YOU TELL ME, THIS IS A GUY WHO GOT THROWN OUT OF NAVY DISHONORABLY, HE GETS THROWN OUT OF THE NAVY, SHORTLY THEREAFTER — MADE NO MONEY. WENT THROUGH MADE NO MONEY. ALL OF SUDDEN HIS FATHER BECOMES VP AND HE IS MAKING MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS NOT ONLY FROM THERE BUT CHINA. BUT — BRIAN: MR. PRESIDENT, THE ACCUSATION IS THIS, THAT YOU’RE USING AID, TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO ATTACK A POLITICAL OPPONENT IN JOE BIDEN AND YOU SAY YOU DO SAY I WANTED TO HOLD UP THE AID BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION BUT YOU ALSO PHONE CALL –>>NO, NO TWO REASONS. BRIAN: OKAY.>>FOR CORRUPTION IT’S KNOWN, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THE MONEY IS GOING TO BE SPENT PROPERLY, BUT THERE IS ANOTHER REASON MAYBE IS MOST IMPORTANT. BRIAN: WHICH IS?>>WHY IS GERMANY, FRANCE, EUROPEAN UNION, WHY AREN’T ALL THOSE COUNTRIES IN EUROPE PAYING? WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE UNITED STATES THE SUCKER? I GOT ELECTED ON THAT. BRIAN: THEY DO GIVE AID. WE GIVE MORE. WE ALWAYS HAVE. MR. PRESIDENT YOU DECIDE RUDY GIULIANI, YOUR LONG-TIME FRIEND, MAYOR, PROSECUTOR, YOU SEND HIM INTO UKRAINE. I WANT YOU TO HEAR WHAT AMBASSADOR SONDLAND SAID, PRETTY CONSISTENT BY STATE DEPARTMENT WORKERS. LOOKS LIKE RUDY GIULIANI WAS GETTING UNDER HIS SKIN.>>THAT’S RUDY. BRIAN: I KNOWN HIM FOR A LONG TIME TOO. LET’S LISTEN.>>SECRETARY PERRY, AMBASSADOR VOLCKER AND I WORKED WITH MR. RUDY GIULIANI ON UKRAINE MATTERS AT THE EXPRESS DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. WE DIDN’T NOT WANT TO WORK WITH MR. GIULIANI. WE ALL UNDERSTOOD THAT IF WE REFUSED TO WORK WITH MR. GIULIANI, WE WOULD LOSE A VERY IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITY TO CEMENT RELATIONS BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND UKRAINE. BRIAN: WHY WAS IT NECESSARY TO PUT RUDY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE UKRAINE, A COUNTRY HE KNEW LITTLE ABOUT AS OPPOSED TO LET THE PEOPLE DO THEIR JOBS THERE, GIVE THEM THE SAME MISSION?>>OKAY, FIRST OF ALL, VOLCKER, I DON’T KNOW HIM, DON’T KNOW HIM. THIS GUY, SONDLAND, HARDLY KNOW HIM. I HAD A COUPLE CONVERSATIONS WITH HIM. I SEE HIM HAPPENING AROUND WHEN I GO TO EUROPE BUT HE WAS REALLY, THE EUROPEAN UNION AMBASSADOR. ALL OF SUDDEN HE IS WORKING ON THIS, ASKING ABOUT THAT. RICK PERRY, I KNOW HIM VERY WELL. FRANKLY I WOULD LIKE RICK TO MAKE A STATEMENT, RICK WOULD MAKE A STATEMENT. HE IS A GREAT GUY. I THINK HE ALREADY MADE A STATEMENT, GREAT GUY. RUDY IS A GREAT CRIME FIGHTER. RUDY IS THE BEST MAYOR IN THE I HISTORY OF NEW YORK CITY. RUDY GIULIANI IS A VERY LEGENDARY FIGURE IN OUR COUNTRY. RUDY WAS THE U.S. ATTORNEY. HE ALSO WORKED AT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. BELIEVE ME THIS KIND OF CRAP WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED IN THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IF RUDY.>>WAS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL JUST LIKE I BELIEVE BILL BARR WILL STRAIGHTEN IT OUT AND STRAIGHTEN IT OUT FOR GOOD BUT RUDY GIULIANI WAS ONE OF THE GREAT CRIME FIGHTERS OF ALL TIME. HE IS A FRIEND OF MINE. HE IS A GREAT PERSON, A ICONIC FIGURE IN THIS COUNTRY. FOR TWO REASONS HE WAS THE GREATEST MAYOR IN THE HISTORY OF NEW YORK. HE WAS THE GREATEST CRIME FIGHTER PROBABLY IN THE LAST 50 YEARS. WHEN YOU’RE DEALING WITH A CORRUPT COUNTRY IF RUDY GIULIANI, HE HAS GOT CREDENTIAL AS AS YOUBECAUSE OF HIS REPUTATION. WHEN YOU HEAR RUDY GIULIANI GOES THERE, IT MEANS A LOT. BRIAN: THE SOURCES ARE INDICTED IN JAIL. THOSE ARE TWO OF HIS SOURCES. ONE OF HIS OTHER SOURCES IS LOOKED AS A CORRUPT FIGURE. SO IN THE END IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAD STATE DEPARTMENT AND RUDY GIULIANI WORKING AGAINST EACH OTHER AND THEN THE ACCUSATION COMES IN THAT YOUR AMBASSADOR WAS BEING TARNISHED BY RUDY GIULIANI.>>AMBASSADOR, THE WOMAN, SHE WOULDN’T PUT UP, SHE IS OBAMA PERSON, WHY ARE YOU BEING SO KIND. WELL, SIR, SHE IS WOMAN. WE HAVE TO BE NICE. SHE IS VERY TOUGH. I HEARD BAD THINGS. BY THE WAY WHEN I WAS TALKING TO PRESIDENT ZELENSKY, RIGHT ON THE PHONE, YOU CAN READ IT, HE DIDN’T LIKE HER. HE BROUGHT UP HER NAME AND HE DIDN’T LIKE HER AT ALL. HOW DO HAVE AN AMBASSADOR THE NEW PRESIDENT WAS, SHE WAS SO WEDDED IN. UKRAINE HATED ME. THEY WERE AFTER ME IN THE ELECTION. THEY WANTED HILLARY CLINTON TO WIN. AND WHEN I WON ALL OF SUDDEN THEY BECAME SO NICE, THEY WERE DOING, THEY HAD TO MAKE UP. THERE WERE MANY ARTICLES YOU KNOW, GET TO BE FRIENDLY BECAUSE WE’RE LIKE A GRAVY TRAIN FOR THEM. WE’RE LIKE THEIR GRAVY TRAIN. THEY WERE TOTALLY IN FAVOR OF HILLARY CLINTON. BUT THIS AMBASSADOR THAT YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY SAYS IS SO WONDERFUL. , SHE WOULDN’T HANG MY PICTURE IN THE EMBASSY. SHE IS IN CHARGE OF THE EMBASSY. SHE WOULDN’T HANG IT. IT LOOK A YEAR-AND-A-HALF, TWO YEARS TO GET THE PICTURE UP. SHE SAID BAD THINGS ABOUT ME. SHE WOULDN’T DEFEND ME. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE AN AMBASSADOR. RUDY DIDN’T SAY GOOD THINGS, HE WASN’T CRAZY ABOUT IT T WASN’T LIKE A MAJOR TOPIC BUT I HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE. THIS WAS AN OBAMA PERSON. DIDN’T WANT TO HANG MY PICTURE IN THE EMBASSY. STANDARD THAT YOU PUT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PICTURE IN AN EMBASSY. THIS WAS NOT AN ANGEL THIS WOMAN, OKAY? THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT SHE DID THAT I DIDN’T LIKE AND WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT AT SOME TIME. AINSLEY: OKAY.>>I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW, THIS WAS NOT A BABY WE’RE DEALING WITH. AINSLEY: THERE WAS ONE WOMAN WHO WAS IN ALL OF THESE TESTIMONIES THIS WEEK, WHO WAS STICKING UP FOR YOU, CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK ASKING HER QUESTIONS, DOING HER JOB. SHE SAID HER CONSTITUENTS WANT TO GET TO THE BOTTOM WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE BIDENS AND THAT INVESTIGATION. SHE QUESTIONED TIM MORRISON AND KURT VOLCKER ON CAPITOL HILL. LISTEN TO THIS.>>OKAY.>>THE TRUTH IS THE FACTS ARE INDEED NOT COMPLICATED. I AM GOING TO CLOSE OUT WITH TWO QUESTIONS FOR THE BOTH OF YOU. DID UKRAINE OPEN INVESTIGATION INTO THE BIDENS, MR. MORRISON.>>NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE, MA’AM.>>AMBASSADOR VOLCKER?>>NOT TO MY KNOWLEDGE EITHER.>>DID EITHER OF YOU HAVE ANY EVIDENCE OF QUID PRO QUO, MR. MORRISON?>>NO, MA’AM.>>AMBASSADOR VOLCKER.>>I DID NOT.>>ANY EVIDENCE OF BRIBERY?>>NO, MA’AM. AINSLEY: SHE HAS BEEN RAKED ON THE COALS FOR THAT. KELLYANNE CONWAY’S HUSBAND WAS ONE THAT CALLED HER TRASH.>>FIRST OF ALL, SHE HAS BECOME A STAR. YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME YOU DO SOMETHING, YOU HAVE GUYS LIKE JIM JORDAN, MEADOWS, ALL THESE GUYS THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND AND THEY’RE STARS BUT THEY HAVE BEEN STARS. EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE YOU MEET A NEW STAR. I KNOW A LOT ABOUT STARDOM. I KNOW A LOT ABOUT IT, I MADE PLENTY OF THEM BUT I TELL YOU WHAT, THIS YOUNG WOMAN FROM UPSTATE NEW YORK, SHE HAS BECOME A STAR. HER WAY, YOU CAN NEVER DEFINE EXACTLY WHAT IT IS, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. YOU’RE A STAR, OKAY? WHY, HOT HELL KNOWS, BUT YOU’RE A STAR. THERE AREN’T MANY OF THEM. BUT WHAT HAPPENS IS, SHE HAS BECOME A STAR. HER MANNERISM, HER WAY OF TALKING, HER — BRIAN: RIGHT TO THE POINT.>>JUST THE WHOLE THING. IT JUST WORKS. SHE, SHE’S A TREMENDOUS PERSON. SHE WAS FANTASTIC DURING THE HEARINGS. TURNER, SO MANY PEOPLE, THEY WERE SO GREAT BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? THE BOTTOM LINE IS, ALL OF THOSE WITNESSES, THEY’RE ALL SHIFTY SCHIFFS. DON’T FORGET THERE WAS NO DUE PROCESS. YOU CAN’T HAVE LAWYERS. WE COULDN’T HAVE ANY WITNESS. WE WANTED TO WALL THE WHISTLEBLOWER. YOU KNOW WHO I WANT AS FIRST WITNESS, FRANKLY I WANT A TRIAL. BRIAN: YOU WANT A TRIAL?>>OH, I WOULD, LOOK, NUMBER ONE, THEY SHOULD NEVER, EVER IMPEACH. THIS IS NOT — I WATCHED, I WATCHED FIVE PEOPLE ON YOUR NETWORK YESTERDAY SAY THERE’S NOTHING HERE. ANDY McCARTHY, HOW ABOUT KEN, SPECIAL PROSECUTOR. BRIAN: KEN STARR.>>SPECIAL COUNSEL. KEN STARR, HE WAS FANTASTIC, HE SAID THERE’S NOTHING HERE. SO READY? NUMBER ONE, THERE SHOULD NEVER BE AN IMPEACHMENT. THIS IS NOT AN IMPEACHMENT. THAT PHONE CALL WAS TOTALLY APPROPRIATE, OKAY, TOTALLY. BUT, ASSUMING THESE PEOPLE ARE AS SLEAZY AS THEY ARE, AND NANCY PELOSI IS TOTALLY INCOMPETENT, SHE’S LOST ABSOLUTELY, LOST, SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT SHE’S DOING. SHE HASN’T DONE ANYTHING. SHE CAN’T GET ANYTHING APPROVED. EVERYBODY IS WORKING ON THIS THEY JUST GOT BLOWN AWAY. THEY PUT THEIR WITNESSES UP. WE’RE NOT GOING TO GET USMCA BECAUSE OF — BRIAN: SO YOU WANT A TRIAL.>>FARMERS AND EVERYONE WILL VOTE AGAINST DEMOCRATS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE BUT IF THEY DO PUT IT UP BECAUSE THEY’RE CRAZY, ADAM SCHIFF IS A NUTJOB. LISTEN TO THIS. ADAM SCHIFF GETS UP BEFORE CONGRESS AND HE MADE UP MY STATEMENT. BRIAN: RIGHT.>>WHO MADE THAT STATEMENT? HE MADE IT UP. THEN AFTER HE GOT CAUGHT, THREE DAYS LATER HE STARTED SAYING PARODY. THE THING I DID THAT WAS RIGHT, BRIAN, THE THING I DID THAT WAS RIGHT, I RELEASED THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL IMMEDIATELY. HAD I NOT DONE THAT, I WOULD HAVE HAD A BIG PROBLEM. A BIG PROBLEM BECAUSE THEY ALL LIED ABOUT MY CALL. MY CALL WAS PERFECT. IF YOU HEARD ADAM SCHIFF’S MADE-UP VERSION OF MY CALL, I MEAN IT WAS THE WORST THING I EVER HEARD. I SAID HOW COULD THAT BE POSSIBLE. YOU KNOW THE SAD PART? BECAUSE HE MADE IT IN THE HALLS OF CONGRESS HE HAS IMMUNITY. I CAN’T SUE HIM. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CAN’T SUE HIM. ONE OTHER THING BEFORE WE GET OFF, THE I KNOW WE COULD KEEP THIS GOING ALL DAY, RIGHT? IT’S EASY. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS NEVER BEEN MORE UNIFIED. BOTH THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE, MITCH, LINDSEY, I COULD NAME 20 NAMES UP THERE. I COULD NAME, THEY HAVE NEVER HAD, LOOK, WE WON 196-0. THAT NEVER HAPPENS. YOU KNOW, I ALWAYS SAY THE DEMOCRATS ARE LOUSY POLITICIANS. THEY HAVE LOUSY POLICY BUT THEY STICK TOGETHER, AND THEY’RE VICIOUS. THEY’RE MORE VICIOUS FRANKLY. BUT THE REPUBLICANS THEY HAVE TENDENCY, THEY BREAK UP. THEY DON’T, THE REPUBLICANS I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT STICKING TOGETHER. STEVE: MR. PRESIDENT, WE UNDERSTAND THERE WERE SIX REPUBLICAN SENATORS, A PERFECT TRANSITION TO THIS QUESTION THAT TALKED TO YOU YESTERDAY. ALONG WITH THE WHITE HOUSE LAWYER, I KNOW JARED KUSHNER WAS THERE YOU’RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT SOME SORT OF STRATEGY GOING FORWARD, DOES LOOK LIKE NANCY PELOSI HER BACK IS UP AGAINST THE CALL. SHE WILL HAVE TO PROCEED WITH THE IMPEACHMENT VOTE. IT WILL WIND UP IN THE SENATE. YOU SAY THAT YOU, TO YOUR EARLIER POINT YOU WANT A FULL TRIAL BECAUSE THEN YOU WILL WIND UP WITH ACCORDING TO THE STORY, DUE PROCESS, WHICH YOU FEEL YOU DID NOT GET WITH ADAM SCHIFF, WHICH MEANS YOU CAN CALL YOUR OWN WITNESSES AND YOU WOULD LOVE TO SEE HUNTER BIDEN IN THE CHAIR TO ANSWER ALL THOSE QUESTIONS
