THE INVESTIGATION IMPACT ON 2020, ALL THAT AND A LOT MORE AS WE LOOK AHEAD ON SUNDAY MORNING FEATURES ♪ IN THE PUBLIC HEARING IN THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WILL CONTINUE THIS UPCOMING WEEK WITH EIGHT OFFICIALS ARE SCHEDULED TO TESTIFY INCLUDING US AMBASSADOR TO THE EUROPEAN UNION GORDON SONDLAND WHOSE NAME IS COME UP SO FAR

THEY HEARD TESTIMONY FROM WILLIAM TAYLOR AND GEORGE KENT, THE DIPPY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE FOR EUROPE AND EASTERN EUROPE NEITHER COULD ANSWER THIS KEY QUESTION FROM JOHN MACKLIN >> IN THIS IMPEACHMENT HEARING TODAY FOR TREASON OR BRIBERY AND OTHER HIGH CRIMES, WHERE IS THE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSIVE NOT CALL HER EITHER OF YOU HERE TODAY TO ASSERT THERE WAS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE? >> SHOUTED OUT, ANYONE AND RAINING RIGHT NOW RATCLIFF HOW INTEL HOMELAND SECURITY AND ALSO FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR IT'S ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE YOU THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE

>> GOOD TO BE WITH YOU >> I WANT TO LOOK AHEAD BUT LOOK BACK WHAT IS YOUR TAKE AWAY FROM WHAT YOU HEARD THIS PAST WEEK? >> LET'S SUMMARIZE, WE HEARD FROM THREE WITNESSES THIS WEEK, NONE OF THOSE THREE WITNESSES HAVE MET OR SPOKEN WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE LAST YEAR, NONE OF THEM WERE ON THE JULY 25: QUESTION, NONE OF THEM HAVE FIRSTHAND INFORMATION OF THE CALL OF COURSE AND AS YOU DISPLAY, NONE OF THEM ARE AWARE OF ANY CRIMINAL ACTIVITY OR IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, IF YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION, THE IMPRESSION OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WHAT IS THIS ABOUT AND WHY ARE WE HERE WHAT IS CONGRESS WASTING THEIR TIME WITH ON ANOTHER EFFORT TO FROM THE PRESIDENT FOR SOMETHING ELSE HE DID NOT DO MARIA: SOME OF THESE TESTIMONIES HAVE BEEN LEAKED AND SOME HAVE BEEN OUT IN THE PUBLIC VIEW BUT OTHERS NOT, WHAT IS THE PROCESS IN TERMS OF GETTING CERTAIN THINGS OUT AND OTHERS NOT? >> THE PROCESS IS WHATEVER ADAM SCHIFF DECIDES, THE PROCESS WILL BE THAT THEY — THINK OF IT THIS WAY, IF YOU'RE ACCUSED OF A CRIME, YOU SHOW UP IN THE PERSON WHO HAS ACCUSED YOU OF THE CRIME IS IN CHARGE OF THE TRIAL AND HE DECIDES WHAT WITNESSES ARE GOING TO BE CALLED, THE ORDER THEY WILL BE CALLED, HOW MUCH THEY'LL BE ALLOWED TO TESTIFY, WHO WILL BE ALLOWED TO ASK QUESTIONS, THAT'S WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE DEALING WITH AND I THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SEE THAT WE FIND OUT EVERYTHING WHAT THE RULES ARE GOING TO BE, THE RULES CHANGE EVERY DAY, THE TESTIMONY CHANGES, THE CRIMES THAT THE PRESIDENT ALLEGEDLY IS ACCUSED OF CHANGES

JUST IN THE PAST WEEK, WE WENT FROM THIS WAS ALL ABOUT THE QUID PRO QUO TO ABOUT EXTORTION TO BRIBERY SO WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE CRIMES ARE GOING TO BE IN THE OTHER THING THAT WAS IMPORTANT CAME UP THIS WEEK, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY SAY OF CRIME AND WHAT IT ULTIMATELY IS, THERE IS NO VICTIM FOR THE CRIME, THE ALLEGED VICTIM, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UKRAINE SAID THERE IS NO PRESSURE, NO CONDITIONS, NO DEMANDS, NOTHING IMPROPER, IT WAS A GOOD CALL, I WAS HAPPY WITH THE CALL SO YOU HAVE NO CRIME AND NO VICTIM THAT'S THE WORST IMPEACHMENT TRIAL EVER >> ESPECIALLY SINCE THE WHISTLEBLOWER FIRST BROUGHT UP THESE ALLEGATIONS IN NANCY PELOSI AND COLLEAGUES WANTED TO TALK WITH THE WHISTLEBLOWER, WE HAVE A LETTER THAT NANCY PELOSI WROTE THE SPEAKER TO HER COLLEAGUES SAYING THE ADMINISTRATION NEEDS TO STOP BLOCKING THE WHISTLEBLOWER FROM DISCLOSING TO CONGRESS A SERIOUS POSSIBLE FLEET ENTER BREACH FROM THE PRESIDENT AND NOW ADAM SCHIFF SAYS HE DOES NOT WANT TO SPEAK TO THE WHISTLEBLOWER

IN WHAT WE KEEP GETTING ARE PARADING THROUGH ONE AMBASSADOR OR DIPLOMAT AFTER ANOTHER WHO DOES NOT KNOW THE PRESIDENT AND DOESN'T KNOW WHAT EITHER PRESIDENT THINKS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND WERE NOT HEARING FROM THE MOST IMPORTANT WITNESSES THE MOST IMPORTANT IS THE WHISTLEBLOWER, ADAM SCHIFF TWO MET WITH HER WAS SUPPORT AND HUNTER BIDEN WHOSE TESTIMONY BECAME INDISPENSABLE THIS WEEK WHEN WE LEARN IT WAS NOT A SHAM AS CHAIRMANSHIP SHED TO BE ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT, WE FOUND OUT THE OBAMA STATE DEPARTMENT WAS CONCERNED ABOUT HUNTER BIDEN'S ROLE ON MARIE'S MOM, WE HEARD FROM MARIE YOVANOVITCH AND MR KENT WHO THOUGHT IT PRESENTED A CONFLICT OF INTEREST REPUBLICANS ARE ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT WERE GOBBLED DOWN AND AGAIN, THIS IS HEADED SUMMARILY, THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO SEND THIS TO THE SENATE WITHOUT TESTIMONY FROM THE MOST IMPORTANT WITNESSES >> I THINK THIS IS AN INTERESTING POINT YOU BRING UP, THAT DID COME OUT LAST WEEK THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS PREPPING AMBASSADOR MARIE YOVANOVITCH WHEN SHE WAS GOING TO BE THERE IN THE TESTIMONY ROOM AND THEY NEEDED HER TO UNDERSTAND THE SPECIFICS ON HUNTER BIDEN ON THE BREEZE WILL BOARD

>> THINK ABOUT THAT, WHAT HER TESTIMONY WAS, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF COMPANIES IN UKRAINE AND IN PREPARATION WITH THE OBAMA BIDEN STATE DEPARTMENT BRIEFED HER ON ONE COMPANY WITHEPSTEIN AROUND THE MONEY THE COMPANY WHO IS BEING INVESTIGATED AND THE PROSECUTOR WHO IS INVESTIGATING THAT WAS FIRED JUST HOURS AFTER JOE BIDEN DEMAND HE BE FIRED THE PRESIDENT HAS EVERY RIGHT TO TAKE CARE THAT OUR LAWS ARE FAITHFULLY EXECUTED IN THE HUNTER BIDEN CONTRACT WITH A CASE OF CORRUPTION AND TOTALLY APPROPRIATE FOR US TO BE LOOKING AT THAT RELATIONSHIP WE OUGHT TO HAVE THAT TESTIMONY IN THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL THAT RELATES TO QUESTIONS ABOUT INVESTIGATIONS MARIA: THE QUESTION BECOMES WHERE IS THIS ALL GOING, AND THIS UPCOMING WEEK YOU HAVE A MORE WITNESSES COMING DOWN TO TESTIFY AND YET THERE IS A STRONG BELIEF OUT THERE THAT YOUR COLLEAGUES ON THE LEFT ARE RAILROADED THIS THROUGH AND TRIED TO GET AS MUCH DONE AS POSSIBLE BEFORE THANKSGIVING AND PERHAPS COULD BEAT THE IG REPORT, THAT IS COMING OUT WHICH YOU LOOK AT THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIAN PROBE, THAT WILL COME OUT AS WELL THEN WE GET TO DO RESPONDENT LINDSEY GRAHAM TOLD ME LAST WEEK ON THE PROGRAM TO IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY HEADED TO THE SENATE WATCH THIS

>> I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO FIND OUT WHAT REALLY DID HAPPEN REGARDING THE FIRING OF THE PROSECUTOR AND WHAT WAS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST TO HUNTER BIDEN HAD BUT BACK TO THE WHISTLEBLOWER IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BRING THIS CASE FORWARD IN MY VIEW FAIRLY WITHOUT US KNOWING WHO THE WHISTLEBLOWER IS AND HAVING A CHANCE TO CROSS-EXAMINE THEM ABOUT ANY BY SYSTEM I HAVE IF THEY DON'T CALL THE WHISTLEBLOWER THIS THING IS DEAD ON ARRIVAL ON THE SENATE MARIA: DEAD ON ARRIVAL ON THE SENATE WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN TERMS OF THE WHOLE PROCESS

>> IT MEANS THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME I THINK THE DEMOCRATS KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DEMOCRATS ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE WHICH IS NOW THE HOUSE IMPEACHMENT COMMITTEE THAT ALREADY VOTED TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, THEY HAVE MADE UP THEIR MIND AND THIS IS DEAD ON ARRIVAL WITHOUT FAIRLY LOOKING AT THE MOST IMPORTANT WITNESSES AND THEY DON'T WANT THE WHISTLEBLOWER TO COME IN BECAUSE IT IS NOT BEEN DISCOVERED THAT CHAIRMANSHIPS OFFICE CORE NEEDED FOR THAT PERSON TO BECOME THE WHISTLEBLOWER AND THE OTHER THING CHAIRMANSHIP HAS NOT DONE, HE HAS NOT READ THE INSPECTOR GENERAL'S TRANSCRIPT, THE FIRST ONE BECAUSE IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL KNEW AND DID NOT DO ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ADAM SCHIFF AND THE WAS A BARBIE ENTER BASED ON WHAT ADAM SCHIFF DID OR DID NOT REVEAL TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL SO THIS IS SUCH AN UNFAIR PROCESS AND I THINK EVERYONE SEES THE REPUBLICANS ARE DEALING WITH AN INQUIRY WHERE WE HAVE NOT JUST ONE BUT TWO HANDS TIED BEHIND OUR BACKS AND DESPITE THAT, THE DEMOCRATS ARE STILL LOSING IN A CASE WHERE WE TALK ABOUT IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT, IT SHOULD BE CLEAR, EGREGIOUS AND BIPARTISAN

IT IS NONE OF THOSE THINGS MARIA: STAY WITH US, BECAUSE I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT CONNECTING THE DOTS TO THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIAN PROBE COMING UP WE UNDERSTAND FROM WILLIAM BARR THAT THE IG REPORT IS A MENACE AND WE WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT AS WELL AS TALK ABOUT THE TRANSCRIPT SHE WOULD LIKE RELEASED BECAUSE I KNOW WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO BRING THAT UP AND QUEST MARIA: WELCOME BACK WITH MY INTERVIEW WITH JOHN RATFLIFFE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMISSIONER HE'S BEEN ASKED TOP QUESTIONS IN THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY LAST WEEK, CONGRESSMAN FORGET TO THE IG REPORT, I WANT TO GET YOUR THOUGHTS ON WHAT WILL HEAR FROM THE IG REPORT WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR EARLY DECEMBER BUT ONE THING THAT I NOTICED THIS PAST WEEK, ARE YOU GUYS NOT UNDER OATH IN CONGRESS IN THAT ROOM? ADAM SCHIFF, YOU SAID YOU WANT ADAM SCHIFF TO COME DOWN AND TESTIFY UNDER OATH

DOES THAT MEAN WHAT WE HEAR FROM ADAM SCHIFF NEEDS PUBLIC HEARINGS HE IS NOT UNDER OATH HE CAN SAY WHATEVER HE WANTS? >> YET HE IS NOT SWORN IN AS A WITNESS AS WE PRESIDE OVER THESE HEARINGS OR HE PRESIDES OVER THESE HEARINGS MUCH OF WHAT HE HE IS SAYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS NOT TRUE I KNOW IT'S NOT TRUE AND WE KNOW IT IS NOT TRUE WE WOULD LIKE HIM TO TESTIFY, I THINK CONGRESSMAN COLLINS IS GOING TO ASK FOR THAT WHEN THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE SENT A REPORT TO THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND I DOUBT THAT CHAIRMAN NADLER IS GOING TO ALLOW THAT I DON'T THINK THEY WILL ALLOW THAT, THEY SHOULD AND I THINK THAT'S UNFORTUNATE

IT'S ANOTHER REASON WHY THIS WILL BE DEAD ON ARRIVAL IN THE SENATE INCLUDING ADAM SCHIFF WILL NOT BE TESTIFYING >> I'M GOING TO SPEAK WITH DOUG COLLINS IN JUST A FEW MINUTES AND ASK HIM ABOUT THAT PRE-BUT IT STRUCK ME BECAUSE I GUESS THAT'S WHAT HE CAN SAY WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE WHISTLEBLOWER, WE DON'T KNOW WHO THE WHISTLEBLOWER IS AND THEN A COUPLE WEEKS LATER WE FOUND OUT MY STAFF DID MEET WITH THE WAS A BLUR HE COULD SAY WHAT HE WANTS BECAUSE IS NOT UNDER OATH I JUST WANT TO MAKE THAT CLEAR THE IG REPORT, WHEN DO YOU EXPECT IT, YOU BEEN STUDYING THE ORIGINS OF THE RUSSIAN PROBE FOR THREE YEARS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB IN TERMS OF EXPOSING THE WRONGDOING THAT TOOK PLACE IN 2016, WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT FROM THIS REPORT? >> I DO THINK IT'S GOING TO BE THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER AND BILL BARR SAID IT'S IMMINENT AND I WOULD LOVE IT IF IT CAME OUT SUMER BECAUSE THE EARLY REPORT THE DEMOCRATS ARE RACING TO GET TO THE IMPEACHMENT AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND IT'S WHY WE HAVE EIGHT WITNESSES AND FIVE HEARINGS THIS WEEK AND WERE NOT DOING ANY OF THE WORK BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT IS LIKELY TO BE DAMNING ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THE 2016 INVESTIGATION INTO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND THE ROLE THAT THE OBAMA BIDEN OFFICIALS PLAYED IN THAT

WE KNOW THIS, THE REPORT IS SUPPOSEDLY 500 PAGES, IT DOES NOT TAKE IN INSPECTOR GENERAL 500 PAGES TO SAY EVERYTHING WAS DONE CORRECTLY AND PROPERLY AND I CANNOT TELL YOU EVERYTHING THAT IS IN THERE BUT WHAT I CAN TELL YOU THAT I KNOW THE INSPECTOR GENERAL IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIND THAT THERE WERE THINGS THAT WERE DONE WRONG AND THERE IS EXCULPATORY INFORMATION THAT WAS NOT PROVIDED I THINK IT IS GOING TO BE AN INDICTMENT OF ADAM SCHIFF WHO HAS WRITTEN HIS OWN PFIZER REBUTTAL MEMO IF YOU REMEMBER GENERAL 2018 HOW THE REPUBLICANS CRITICIZE PEOPLE LIKE PETER STRZOK AND LISA PAGE AND ANDY MCCABE AND BRUCE OR WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG I THINK THE IG REPORT IS GOING TO FIND THAT THERE WERE PROBLEMS IN THE PFIZER APPLICATION PROCESS AND THEY DON'T WANT THAT TO COME OUT UNTIL AFTER THEY IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT WE HAVE A LETTER FROM ADAM SCHIFF TO TO GIVE DEVON AND US, WE WILL ALL OF THESE HEARINGS SPECIFICALLY TO BE ONLY ABOUT THE UKRAINE PHONE CALL, WE DON'T WANT ANYTHING ABOUT HUNTER BIDEN AND ANYTHING WITH DEBUNKED INTERFERENCE IN THE 2016 ELECTION

DEBUNKED WHEN I LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING, YOU HAVE AN INVESTIGATION AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT WHICH IS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL INVESTIGATING 2016 ELECTION AND INTERFERENCE BY THE FBI AND CIA YOU HAVE JOHN DURHAM'S CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION I ASK YOU WHAT EXACTLY IS DEBUNKED ABOUT 2016 INTERFERENCE WHICH IS WHAT ADAM SCHIFF DRUGS? HE'S NOT UNDER OATH TO WRITE THIS LETTER EITHER >> HE IS NOT

AND IT'S NOT DEBUNKED AND I THINK THE IG REPORT IS GOING TO VALIDATE AT THE TIME CHAIRMAN NUNEZ BUYS A MEMO THAT HIGHLIGHTED THE ABUSES, I TELL YOU THIS, I CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT THE EXCULPATORY INFORMATION IS BUT THERE WAS SOME AND I TELL YOU IT WAS NOT TIMELY DELIVERED TO THE FISA COURT DURING THE DEPENDENCY OF THOSE FISA APPLICATIONS AND I'LL PROMISE YOU THAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT IS GOING TO ADDRESS THAT MARIA: WE THINK WE KNOW THAT, OUR AUDIENCE KNOWS THAT BECAUSE WE'VE HAD GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS ON IN YOUR COLLEAGUE SAYING THAT THERE WAS AN INFORMANT WHO WENT TO GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS AND SAID IT'S GREAT THAT RUSSIA HAS EASY MODES AND IT'S GOOD FOR TRUMP IN GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS ANSWERS AND SAYS THAT TREES AND I WOULD NEVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND THE GUY WAS WIRED AND IT WAS AN INFORMANT TALKING TO HIM AND THAT TRANSCRIPT SHOULD BE ONE PIECE OF EVIDENCE WERE EXPECTING IN THE IG REPORT THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO AREN'T YOU? >> I BELIEVE THAT WILL BE ADDRESSED BY THE INSPECTOR GENERAL AND WHETHER THAT WAS TIMELY DELIVERED TO THE FISA COURT AND ASSUMING ALL OF THAT IS TRUE AND WILL THE REPORT SPEAK FOR ITSELF, YOU PROBABLY SEE A SHIFTING DEMOCRATIC NARRATIVE SAYING IT DID NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE THERE ARE GENUINE QUESTIONS — >> THERE ARE LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS OF THOSE OF US WHO HAVE SEEN THE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THE 2016 INVESTIGATION, IT IS UNRAVELING AND THAT'S WHY THEY ARE RUSHING TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, THEY FAIL TO IMPEACH HIM FOR BEING A RUSSIAN AGENT BECAUSE IT WAS A JOKE, THEY FAILED TO IMPEACH HIM WORD SHOPPING JUSTICE BECAUSE IT WAS A JOKE

IN THIS HOAX BASED ON A PHONE CALL WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UKRAINE WHO SAYS I'M NOT A VICTIM, NOTHING HAPPENED IS ALSO HOAX >> WERE GONNA TALK WITH JEFF ANDREW FROM NEW JERSEY HE WAS ONE OF TWO WHO VOTED AGAINST THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, REAL QUICK BEFORE YOU GO, DO EXPECT THIS VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT IN DECEMBER? WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING IN TERMS WHEN THE HOUSE WILL IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP >> NANCY PELOSI IN ADAM SCHIFF RACING TO GET THIS DONE AND THAT'S WHERE WE HAVE FIVE IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS THIS WEEK WITH EIGHT DIFFERENT WITNESSES AND THEY ARE RECENT O'CLOCK, THEY WANT TO GET THIS DONE BEFORE INFORMATION THAT COMES OUT THE DAMAGES THE OBAMA BIDEN ADMINISTRATION AND THE EFFORTS TO FRAME DONALD TRUMP COME OUT IN THE IG REPORT OR FROM JOHN DURHAM CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO THOSE VERY SAME ISSUES >> WE WILL BE WATCHING GREAT TO SEE YOU THIS MORNING

AND I WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER FIRST WELCOME BACK THREE IMPLEMENTS THAT THEY BLOCK MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE IN EXCHANGE FOR THE BIDENS NOW AS WE LOOK AHEAD TO THE SECOND WEEK OF PUBLIC HEARINGS, JOINING ME IN ANOTHER EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW A LAWMAKER INVOLVED IN THE NEXT STEPS OF THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS, HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE GEORGIA CONGRESSMAN DOUG COLLINS GREAT TO SEE YOU TODAY PRETTY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US

A LOT OF FIREWORKS IN THIS LAST WEEK OF HEARINGS, WHAT WAS YOUR TAKE AWAY? >> MY BIGGEST TAKE AWAY, WE ARE THROUGH ANOTHER WEEK AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED ABOUT THE CIVIL FACT THAT NOTHING — THE PRESIDENT DID NOTHING WRONG, THERE IS NOTHING IN THE TRANSCRIPT, NO PRESSURE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE UKRAINIAN PRIME MINISTER WHO SAID HE WAS NOT PRESSURE WE STILL NO HOLDING UP OF MONEY THAT THEY DID NOT EVEN KNOW WAS HELD IT AND THEY GOT THE MONEY WE SAW JOHN RADCLIFFE, THERE WAS SOMETHING TO DEBUNKED, ADAM SCHIFF'S CREDIBILITY DEBUNKED WE SAW ARGUMENTS FROM THE DEMOCRATS SUCH AS HEARSAY IS REALLY GOOD EVIDENCE AND SOMETIMES THE BEST OF IT

AND THEN THE WONDERFUL MR SAUD WELL WHO SAID IF YOU REMOVE AND ABBASID OR IT'S IN PLAIN AND IMPEACHABLE DEFENSE WHAT WE SAW LAST WEEK WAS A COMPLETELY FIRST-HAND RESPONSE FROM THE DEMOCRAT TO PRESIDENT THEY HAVE HATED WE SAW THEM CONTROLLING THE NARRATIVE TO SUCH A WAY BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE NOT WINNING SO THEY HAVE TO PUT OUT WHAT THEY WANT BUT THEN AGAIN I SAW CHAIRMAN AND THE RULES THAT WE PASSED A WEEK OR SO AGO CONFIRM ONE THING, THIS IS WHAT WAS ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, THEY DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELSE THEY WANTED TO BRING A DONOR TO WORKDAY, ONE OF THE COUNCILS WHO IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO ASK QUESTIONS

THIS IS ANOTHER PROCESS WHERE THEY WANT STOP JUST OFF MEMBERS TO ASK INSTEAD OF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THESE ARE THE RULES THEY SET UP BECAUSE THEY WANT THE NARRATIVE TO BE SO TAILORED AND SO CONSTRUCTED TO THEIR ONE ARGUMENT THAT THEY DON'T CARE THEY HATE THIS PRESIDENT SO MUCH THAT THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT PROCESS AND ROLES THE WORST PART, THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT JUSTICE THEY KNOW THEY HAVE NOTHING TO ANOTHER MAKING IT UP AND PULLING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S BEST TO SELL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

MARIA: YOU MAKE A GOOD POINT, THEY WERE STAFFED WITH YOUR TO ASK QUESTIONS BUT NOT THE SAME AS WHEN ONE OF YOUR COLLEAGUES A NEWLY ELECTED MEMBER OF CONGRESS TRIED TO ASK A QUESTION LET'S WATCH THIS >> THE CHAIRWOMAN WILL STAY HER POINT OF ORDER >> WILL DETERMINE CONTINUE TO PROHIBIT WITNESSES FROM ANSWERING A PUBLIC QUESTION AS YOU'VE DONE IN CLOSED HEARINGS — >> THAT IS NOT A PROPER POINT OF ORDER WE WILL SUSPEND >> THE GENTLEMAN IS NOT RECOGNIZED

I DO WANT TO RESPOND — THE GENTLEMAN IS NOT RECOGNIZED — THE GENERAL AND IS ORGANIZED MARIA: THAT'S ENDED LIKE SHIFTS RULES OR THE HIGHWAY YOU ALSO WANT TRANSCRIPTS TO BE RELEASED, WHAT IS SO IMPORTANT ABOUT GETTING THE OTHER TRANSCRIPT THAT YOU WANT TO SEE RELEASED BEFORE YOU ASK QUESTIONS OF THE NEW WITNESSES NEXT WEEK? >> TWO THINGS, NUMBER ONE AT TRANSCO SHE JUST TALKED ABOUT THAT YOU CAN ADD TO THE NARRATIVE, YESTERDAY LATE THEY RELEASED THE MARGIN TRANSCRIPT WHICH CAN BE USED IN FOLLOWING UP ON TESTIMONY WE HAVE HEARD BEFORE AND TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED BEFORE THEY HE SAID HE WAS ACTUALLY ON THE CALL AND THERE WAS NOTHING IMPROPER AND HE INCORPORATED ANY INPUT THAT MR GOODMAN HAD INTO THIS THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT NEED TO BE ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS

I WANT TO GO BACK TO YOUR CLIP, WHAT IT SHOWS, ADAM SCHIFF IS AN INCOMPETENT, A POINT OF ORDER CANNOT BE IGNORED BY A CHAIRMAN THEY CAN RULE AGAINST THE POINT OF ORDER BUT HE HAS TO AND HERE THE COURT OF ORDER AND TO SAY THAT HE IS NOT RECOGNIZED, THIS IS A TRAIN WERE ON THE TRACK AND I'M SORRY REPUBLICANS YOU'RE TRYING TO LAY ON THE TRACKS, I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE IT BECAUSE I ONLY HAVE ONE PURPOSE IN MIND IS TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET MY WAY I DON'T CARE WHAT THE RULES SAY MOST PEOPLE — WHEN THE SENATE LOOKS AT THIS AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEY SEE A RUNAWAY CHAIRMAN WHO HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE IS DOING WHEN IT COMES TO ACTUALLY CARRYING OUT A FAIR AND HONEST PROCEDURE

MARIA: VERY CLOSE TO THE TIME THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO HEAR FROM MICHAEL HOROWITZ, THE INSPECTOR GENERAL EXPECTING IG REPORT SOON AND I KNOW YOU HAVE A DEADLINE FOR CERTAIN REAUTHORIZATION'S OF FISA, THE FISA COURT, CAN YOU TELL US WHAT IS HAPPENING THERE AND WHAT YOU'RE EXPECTING FOR >> THE IG REPORT, HOPEFULLY WE WILL SEE AROUND THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER MAY BE ABOUT THE SAME TIME JUDICIARY COMMITTEE GETS ADAM SCHIFF TO PETER AND COREY DOCUMENT BUT THE OTHER THING WAS SET ALIGHT AND IT'LL BE MOSTLY WHAT WERE HEARING NOW PROBABLY NONCLASSIFIED WITH GOOD INSIGHT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WHAT WAS ACTUALLY HAPPY WITH THE PROBLEMS IN THE FISA COURT WE ARE SEEN THAT COMING UP
