  • >> Bill: HOUSE DEMOCRATS

  • DEMANDING THE RELEASE OF

  • MATERIAL BEHIND A WHISTLEBLOWER

  • COMPLAINT INVOLVING PRESIDENT

  • TRUMP AND HIS COMMUNICATION

  • WITH A FOREIGN LEADER.

  • THE PRESIDENT FIRING BACK

  • CALLING THE STORY FAKE NEWS.

  • WANT TO BRING IN TREY GOWDY.

  • WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.

  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THE

  • PRESIDENT IS HOLDING WHAT THEY

  • CALL A SPRAY INSIDE THE OVAL

  • OFFICE.

  • WE'LL GET A PLAY-OUT IN THE

  • MOMENT.

  • WE MIGHT GET INTERRUPTED.

  • HE HAS BEEN ASKED ABOUT THE

  • WHISTLEBLOWER STORY AND CALLS

  • IT FAKE NEWS AND SUGGESTS IT

  • WAS A PARTISAN WHISTLEBLOWER.

  • WE'LL WAIT FOR THAT IN A MOMENT.

  • ANDREW MCCABE SAYS THIS

  • WHISTLEBLOWER SHOWS IN HIS

  • WORDS GREAT COURAGE.

  • HE SAID THIS ON CNN.

  • >> THIS IS SOMEONE WHO

  • ESSENTIALLY DID WHAT WE HOPE

  • ALL PEOPLE SERVING IN THE

  • GOVERNMENT WILL DO.

  • STEPPED FORWARD, USED THE

  • APPROPRIATE PROCESS, IN A

  • CLASSIFIED AND CONFIDENTIAL

  • MANNER TO BRING THEIR CONCERNS

  • TO THE APPROPRIATE OFFICIALS.

  • THAT TAKES INCREDIBLE COURAGE.

  • IT IS HARD TO STAND UP TO AN

  • ADMINISTRATION, STAND UP

  • PARTICULARLY TO THIS

  • ADMINISTRATION AND THIS

  • PRESIDENT.

  • >> Bill: WE JUST WANTED TO ROLL

  • THAT OUT AND GET YOU TO RESPOND.

  • TREY, GO AHEAD.

  • >> I DOUBT ANY ANDY MCCABE HAS

  • ANY IDEA WHAT THE CONTENT OF

  • THE PHONE CALL WAS OR HOW

  • COURAGEOUS THE WHISTLEBLOWER.

  • I WARNED PEOPLE WEEKS AGO IF

  • ADAM SCHIFF CONTINUED TO BE THE

  • CHAIRPERSON OF THE HOUSE

  • INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE WHO IS

  • ONE OF THE MOST DEEPLY PARTISAN

  • MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE,

  • EVENTUALLY PEOPLE WOULD STOP

  • SHARING INFORMATION WITH THE

  • INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE AND

  • APPARENTLY THAT'S WHAT'S

  • HAPPENED.

  • SO IF NANCY PELOSI WANTS THIS

  • INFORMATION GIVEN TO CONGRESS

  • SHE SHOULD PICK A LESS PARTISAN

  • PERSON TO BE THE CHAIRPERSON OF

  • THAT COMMITTEE.

  • >> Bill: WHAT DO YOU THINK IS

  • GOING ON WITH THIS STORY?

  • >> A COUPLE OF THINGS.

  • I THINK CONGRESS HAS LOTS OF

  • TOOLS TO GET INFORMATION FROM

  • THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH.

  • DIDN'T THEY JUST PASS A BUDGET

  • RESOLUTION THIS WEEK?

  • THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THAT.

  • THEY COULD HAVE SAID YOU WON'T

  • GET THE MONEY UNTIL WE GET THE

  • WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT.

  • CONGRESS HAS PLENTY OF TOOLS

  • BUT WHEN YOU PUT SOMEONE WHO IS

  • WRONG AS OFTEN AS ADAM SCHIFF

  • IS WRONG AND DEEPLY PARTISAN AS

  • HE IS IN CHARGE OF THE

  • INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, NO, YOU

  • AREN'T GOING TO SHARE

  • CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

  • BECAUSE ADAM LEAKS LIKE A SIEVE.

  • THAT'S THE CONSEQUENCE OF

  • PUTTING SOMEONE THAT PARTISAN

  • AS THE HEAD OF THAT COMMITTEE.

  • >> Julie: BILL JUST MENTIONED

  • THE POOL SPRAY WE'RE ABOUT TO

  • RECEIVE.

  • WE HAVE SOME ROUGH NOTES OF

  • WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID WHEN HE

  • WAS ASKED ABOUT THE

  • WHISTLEBLOWER AND I'LL QUOTE.

  • HE SAYS IT'S A RIDICULOUS

  • STORY, PARTISAN WHISTLEBLOWER,

  • CONVERSATIONS WITH LEADERS

  • ALWAYS APPROPRIATE.

  • HIGHEST LEVEL.

  • I FIGHT SO STRONGLY FOR THE

  • COUNTRY.

  • ANOTHER POLITICAL HACK JOB

  • TALKING ABOUT HOW THERE IS

  • NOTHING WRONG WITH THE LEADER

  • OF THE FREE WORLD TALKING TO

  • OTHER LEADERS OF OTHER

  • COUNTRIES.

  • THE QUESTION IS WAS THERE A

  • PROMISE MADE?

  • WE DON'T KNOW.

  • EVERYBODY IS SPECULATING A

  • PROMISE WAS MADE.

  • THERE WAS A WHISTLEBLOWER.

  • WE DON'T KNOW THE FACTS YET.

  • WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE THE FACTS

  • TO BE HERE?

  • >> NO IDEA, JULIE.

  • I WOULD BE DOING YOU A

  • DISSERVICE IF I GUESSED.

  • I THINK WE HAVE TO GET TO THE

  • POINT IN OUR POLITICAL CULTURE

  • WHERE WE DON'T SPECULATE.

  • THERE IS A TRANSCRIPT SO WE

  • DON'T HAVE TO WONDER WHAT WAS

  • SAID.

  • I THINK WHAT DOES FRUSTRATE

  • PEOPLE IS I SEEM TO RECALL A

  • PRESIDENT WHO SAID I'LL HAVE

  • MORE FLEXIBILITY IN A SECOND

  • TERM.

  • WE DON'T HAVE TO WONDER ABOUT

  • THAT.

  • THAT'S ON TAPE.

  • I DON'T THINK THERE WAS A

  • SIMILAR LEVEL OF OUTRAGE WHEN

  • PRESIDENT OBAMA PROMISED THAT

  • TO THE RUSSIAN PRESIDENT AS

  • THERE IS NOW.

  • WE DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT

  • PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID.

  • >> Bill: LET'S TALK ABOUT JAMES

  • COMEY NOW.

  • THE QUESTION AS TO WHETHER OR

  • NOT HE WILL FACE THE

  • POSSIBILITY OF PROSECUTION.

  • MARK MEADOWS FROM OUR SHOW JUST

  • YESTERDAY ON COMEY.

  • >> THE ONLY THING THAT HAS BEEN

  • CONSISTENT ABOUT DIRECTOR JAMES

  • COMEY IS HIS WILLINGNESS TO GO

  • AFTER THIS PRESIDENT.

  • ONE OF THE IRREGULARITIES IS

  • THAT JAMES COMEY ACTUALLY SAID

  • THAT NOTHING THAT HAPPENED

  • ACTUALLY AFFECTED THE

  • INVESTIGATION AND WE SEE IN THE

  • REPORT WE SAW THAT

  • CONVERSATIONS HE HAD CHANGED

  • THE ACTION HE TOOK TRYING TO

  • LEAK THINGS TO GET THE SPECIAL

  • PROSECUTOR INSTALLED AND CALLED

  • INTO ACTION.

  • >> Bill: THAT LEADS TO THE

  • OBVIOUS QUESTION HERE ONCE WE

  • GET THE I.G.'S REPORT, WHICH IS

  • STILL WE BELIEVE A FEW WEEKS

  • AWAY.

  • DO YOU BELIEVE JAMES COMEY WILL

  • FACE PROSECUTION, YES OR NO?

  • >> NO, I DON'T.

  • AND I THINK AGAIN WE ARE

  • SETTING THE WRONG STANDARD IN

  • OUR CULTURE WHEN WE SAY

  • EVERYTHING IS FINE UNLESS YOU

  • ARE INDICTED.

  • COMEY HAS BEEN DINGED IN TWO

  • I.G. REPORTS AND FOUND TO

  • VIOLATE HIS EMPLOYMENT

  • AGREEMENT, HE LEAKED CLASSIFIED

  • INFORMATION TO HIS ATTORNEY.

  • WHY IS ALL OF THAT NOT ENOUGH

  • FOR HIM TO
