‘The Five’ reviews Congress’ explosive whistleblower report hearing


♪>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTACKING DEMOCRATS AFTER A HIGH STAKES HEARING ON CAPITOL HILL. ACTING DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE JOSEPH MAGUIRE TESTIFYING ON THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT AFTER IT WAS MADE PUBLIC. THE WHISTLEBLOWER ACCUSING THE WHITE HOUSE OF PUTTING A TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CALL ON A SEPARATE COMPUTER SYSTEM. MOSTLY USED FOR CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. HERE’S CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF CLASHING WITH THE DIRECTOR.>>I DON’T BELIEVE IT HAS CORROBORATED BY OTHER FOLKS. THE WHISTLEBLOWER SAYS THAT HE SPOKE OR SHE SPOKE TO ABOUT A DOZEN OTHER PEOPLE. THIS IS SECOND HAND INFORMATION.>>YOU MADE THE DECISION TO WITHHOLD IT FROM THE COMMITTEE FOR A MONTH.>>AT NO TIME WAS THERE ANY INTENT ON MY PART, SIR, EVER TO WITHHOLD THE INFORMATION.>>BUT WOULD YOU AGREE THAT.>>[INAUDIBLE] INVESTIGATION.>>YOU AGREE THERE SHOULD BE AN INVESTIGATION?>>I BELIEVE THAT IT IS A MATTER TO BE DETERMINED BY THE CHAIR AND THIS COMMITTEE.>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP RESPONDING AFTER THE HEARING.>>IT’S ANOTHER WITCH-HUNT. HERE WE GO AGAIN. IT’S ADAM SCHIFF AND HIS CREW MAKING UP STORIES. THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO LOSE THE ELECTION. THEY KNOW IT. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE DOING IT. MY CALL WAS PERFECT. THE PRESIDENT YESTERDAY OF UKRAINE SAID THERE WAS NO PRESSURE PUT ON HIM WHATSOEVER. WHAT THESE GUYS ARE DOING, DEMOCRATS ARE DOING TO THIS COUNTRY IS A DISGRACE. AND IT SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED. NANCY PELOSI HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY THE RADICAL LEFT AND EVERYBODY KNOWS IT.>>Dana: ANOTHER MOMENT THAT’S GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION AND A DOOSIE. ADAM SCHIFF CREATING CONTROVERSY AFTER MISCHARACTERIZING TRUMP’S CALL WITH THE UKRAINE PRESIDENT.>>I’M GOING TO SAY THIS ONLY SEVEN TIMES SO YOU BETTER LISTEN GOOD. I WANT TO YOU MAKE UP DIRT ON MY POLITICAL OPPONENT, UNDERSTAND LOTS OF IT. AND BY THE WAY DON’T CALL ME A AGAIN. I WILL CALL YOU WHEN YOU HAVE DONE WHAT I ASKED. THIS IS IN SUM AND CHARACTER WHAT THE PRESIDENT WAS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE.>>Dana: SCHIFF LATER CLAIMING IT WAS JUST A PARODY BUT GREG, AREN’T PARODIES SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY?>>Greg: APPARENTLY THAT ONE WASN’T. CAN WE GET A SINGLE SHOT OF DANA REALLY QUICK? DOESN’T SHE LOOK LIKE A SECRET AGENT FROM DANDY ALAN? [LAUGHTER]>>Greg: YOU ARE RIGHT. ADAM SCHIFF OPENINGS UP BY MAKING UP PASSAGES ON TRANSCRIPT AND CONTRIBUTING IT TO TRUMP’S VOICE. WHEN HE IS CAUGHT HE SAYS OH THIS IS A PARODY. SOME PEOPLE THAT PARS OVER TRUMP’S WORDS. IF THE TRANSCRIPT WAS TRULY DAMAGING, HE WOULDN’T HAVE NEEDED TO MAKE UP ANYTHING. HE TRULY IS FULL OF SCHIFF. [LAUGHTER] ABOUT THIS COMPLAINT SO THE MEDIA AND DEMOCRATS ARE EMBRACING SECOND-HAND GOSSIP OVER AN ACTUAL TRANSCRIPT. THEY THERE ARE LIKE 20 VARIATIONS OF THE GUY SAYING I WAS TOLD. THE MEDIA SIGHTS THE MEDIA SITHTS THE MEDIA SITESS THE MEDIA SITES AS EVIDENCE MEDIA. THEY CITE POLITICO. ABC, GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS. COMPLAINT IS A MIXTURE OF HEARSAY, FALSEHOODS, MEDIA CLIPPINGS. BASICALLY THE STEELE DOSSIER LESS PEEING AND MORE LYING. THEY REALIZE THEY COULDN’T BEAT THE TRANSCRIPT BECAUSE THOSE FACTS GO AGAINST THEIR STORY. FINALLY, I WANT TO ADDRESS THE BOMBSHELL THAT EVERYBODY IS TALKING ABOUT. THE LOCKDOWN. THE TIGHTER RESTRICTIONS ON THE TRANSCRIPT. WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT? DO YOU THINK IT MAY BE BECAUSE TWO YEARS AGO PEOPLE WERE LEAKING TRANSCRIPTS FROM THE LEADER’S CONVERSATIONS WITH MEXICO AND AUSTRALIA SO THINK WERE PUTTING THIS STUFF IN A SEPARATE CODE WORD SYSTEM BECAUSE IT WAS BEING LEAKED. DOESN’T THAT KIND OF MAKE SENSE ESPECIALLY WHEN TRUMP RELEASES THE TRANSCRIPT WHY WOULD YOU RELEASE SOMETHING YOU WERE HIDING? IT WASN’T ABOUT TRYING TO HIDE SOMETHING. IT WAS ABOUT TRYING TO PROTECT SOMETHING FROM BEING BEING LEAKED. THAT IS COMMON SENSE. WHEN YOU ARE FLOODED WITH COGNITIVE BIAS YOU CAN’T SEE THE SENSE. CAN YOU ONLY SEE WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE.>>Dana: ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY SAY THIS IS A PRACTICE WE STARTED AFTER THAT. IF THEY WERE TO SAY THAT THAT WOULD CERTAINLY HELP THEM. AND TO YOUR POINTED ABOUT THE COMPLAINT AND SECOND HAND KNOWLEDGE, A LAWYER I TALKED TO TODAY, JESSE, SAID THIS DOCUMENT WOULD BE INADMISSIBLE IN A COURT OF LAUGH BECAUSE IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED HEARSAY AND NO JUDGE WOULD ALLOW IT.>>Jesse: WELL, I READ THE COMPLAINT AND IT READS LIKE A THRILLER NOVEL AND IT READS LIKE IT WAS PROFESSIONALLY TEED UP BY CONSPIRACY INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE TRYING TO DESTROY THE PRESIDENT BEFORE THE PRESIDENT DESTROYED THEM. REMEMBER THE CONTEXT ABOUT THIS. BILL BARR, DURHAM, AND THESE INVESTIGATORS ARE ABOUT TO BLOW UP THE ENTIRE SPY GATE CABAL. THEY ARE ABOUT TO NAME NAMES. AND THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT TO UNRAVEL. SO, BEFORE THEY DO, THIS IS THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY AGAIN STRIKING BACK AT BILL BARR AND DONALD TRUMP. THIS IS WARFARE NOW. BECAUSE, IF YOU READ THE COMPLAINT, THIS IS STUFF THAT IS SO DETAILED AND SO COMPREHENSIVE AND SO SOPHISTICATED AND COMING FROM SO MANY DIFFERENT SOURCES, SO MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS, THIS HAS TO BE AN ORGANIZED CABAL OF PEOPLE INSIDE SELLING THIS GUY THE BILL OF GOODS SO THEN HE GIVES IT TO THE DEMOCRATS BECAUSE IT READS LIKE A THRILLER. THIS DOESN’T COME OUT OF THIN AIR. AND THERE IS NO GUESSING WHY BILL BARR IS SPECIFICALLY NAMED IN THIS WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT. AND IT’S BECAUSE THEY NEED TO DISCREDIT HIM BEFORE THIS THING IS RELEASED. AND YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR, ALSO, REQUESTS FOR HIM TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM NOT ONLY THE UKRAINE INVESTIGATION BUT ALSO THE SPY GATE INVESTIGATION. THIS IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. THIS IS SICK. AND IT’S NO COINCIDENCE THAT ADAM SCHIFF IS RUNNING THIS OPERATION AGAIN. HE HAS BEEN TOTALLY HUMILIATED. REMEMBER, HE WAS ON A PHONE CALL TRYING TO GET NAKED PICTURES OF DONALD TRUMP IN A PRANK PHONE CALL BEFORE THAT WAS EXPOSED? THE NETWORKS TOOK THIS LIVE ALL DAY, INTERRUPTED REGULAR PROGRAMMING. HUGE MISTAKE. THE THING HAD NO ENERGY. AND, REMEMBER, THIS GUY ADAM SCHIFF WAS THE ONE THAT SAID HE HAD PROOF THAT THERE WAS RUSSIA COLLUSION. AND HE NEVER PRODUCED IT. NOW HE IS SAYING HE HAS PROOF THAT THERE IS A QUID PRO QUO. HE STILL HAS NOT PRODUCED IT. SO NOW HE HAS TO FABRICATE QUOTES TO SELL THIS THING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE HE CAN’T SELL IT ON THE SUBSTANCE.>>Dana: JUAN, SPEAKER PELOSI HAD A PRESS CONFERENCE AT 11:00 A.M. AND SHE FLAT OUT SAID DNI BROKE THE LAW. THE DEMOCRATS THINK THIS IS A VERY GOOD DAY FOR THEM. DO YOU?>>Juan: I DO THINK IT WAS A VERY GOOD DAY, DANA. THE REASON THEY THINK IT’S A GOOD DAY LET’S GET BACK TO THE HEART OF THE STORY. BASICALLY THE WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT WAS BACKED UP BY THE TRANSCRIPT RELEASED YESTERDAY. WHAT THE WHISTLEBLOWER HAD TO SAY, AGAIN, CONFIRMS ALL THAT WE READ YESTERDAY IN THE TRANSCRIPT AND THE IDEA OF THE LOCKDOWN, THERE WAS NO NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE HERE. NONE.>>Greg: HOW ABOUT THE FACTS.>>Juan: IT WAS ABOUT POLITICS. THAT’S WHAT THEY WERE PROTECTING. IN ADDITION, ACCORDING TO THE WHISTLEBLOWER, YOU HAVE LAWYERS IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO ARE SAYING YOU KNOW, WE HAD SEVERAL OF THESE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE PUT INTO THIS SECRET SYSTEM. THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT PROTECTING THIS PRESIDENT.>>Greg: FROM LEAKING.>>Juan: OWN POLITICAL DAMAGE. AND SO WHEN YOU GET TO THAT POINT, YOU START TO WONDER WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON INSIDE THIS WHITE HOUSE.>>Jesse: CITING ANONYMOUS SOURCES FROM THE “THE WASHINGTON POST.”>>Juan: NO I’M NOT.>>Jesse: YES, YOU ARE. WHO TOLD YOU THAT?>>Juan: I SAID THE WHISTLEBLOWER.>>Jesse: WHO WAS TOLD BY SOMEONE ELSE.>>Juan: CORRECT.>>Jesse: SO THAT’S HEARSAY.>>Juan: EVERYTHING HE HAS SAID HAS BEEN BACKED UP.>>Jesse: NOT TRUE.>>Juan: IDEA INTERFERING FOR THE FOREIGN COUNTRY FOR THE 2020 ELECTION.>>Jesse: ISN’T THAT WHAT OBAMA AND HILLARY DID, JUAN?>>Greg: DID TRUMP ASK FOR THE SERVERS BACK?>>Juan: THIS IS THE GATEWAY, ISN’T IT BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID OF JOE BIDEN. THEY WANT TO DEMONIZE JOE BIDEN JUST LIKE THAT WAS THE GAME PLAN TO GO AFTER HILLARY CLINTON.>>Katie: THEY ARE AFRAID THAT JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO TAKEN OUT AND TRUMP IS GOING TO RUN AGAINST ELIZABETH WARREN AND WIN. THEY THINK JOE BIDEN IS THE BEST PERSON TO TAKE HIM ON IN SWING STATES LIKE PENNSYLVANIA, WISCONSIN, MICHIGAN, ET CETERA. BUT, ONE THING I THINK THAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE POINTING OUT. I TALKED TO A COUPLE OF PEOPLE TODAY WHO DEAL WITH WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE SIDE OF RECEIVING COMPLAINTS AND PUTTING ON PROTECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WHO ISSUE THESE CLAIMS. AND THEY SAID THAT IT IS HIGHLY UNUSUAL THAT A CLAIM WITH SECOND OR THIRD HAND KNOWLEDGE WOULD EVER BE CONSIDERED SOMETHING THAT WAS LEGITIMATE BECAUSE SPECIFICALLY THE LAW PROTECTS PEOPLE WITH FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE COMPLAINT, THERE ARE MULTIPLE REFERENCES TO A NUMBER OF WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS WHO TOLD ME X. WELL, IF THAT IS THE CASE AND IF IT IS SO EGREGIOUS THAT IT REQUIRES EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE TO BE WAIVED AND FOR THE INSPECTOR GENERAL AND THE FBI TO GET INVOLVED, THOSE WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS HAVE THE PROTECTIONS TO PRESENT THIS INFORMATION FIRSTHAND. AND THE OTHER BIG THING IS THAT WAS DETAILED TODAY BY THE ACTING DNI CHIEF IS THAT CONGRESS WOULDN’T HAVE GOTTEN THE INFORMATION THAT THEY HAVE WITH THE COMPLAINT BEING RELEASED IF PRESIDENT TRUMP HADN’T RELEASED THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL BECAUSE IT GOT RID OF THE CLASSIFICATION AND IT GOT RID OF THE EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. AND SO THE ONLY REASON WHY CONGRESS GOT THIS IS BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WAS TRANSPARENT IN DOING AN UNPRECEDENTED MOVE AND RELEASING THIS CALL AND REST OF THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN ABLE TO READ THIS COMPLAINT AND TO WHAT YOU SAID, IT IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH WHAT THE TRANSCRIPT SAYS THERE IS A LOT IN THE COMPLAINT THAT DOESN’T ADD UP TO — AND THE NUMBER OF TIMES BIDEN WAS MENTIONED.>>Juan: THE REASON IS NOT BECAUSE OF DONALD TRUMP. THE REASON IT CAME OUT IS BECAUSE SOMEBODY HAD THE HEART, HAD THE STRENGTH TO SAY I’M GOING TO BE A WHISTLEBLOWER AND PUT MY CAREER AT RISK IN ORDER TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY.>>Jesse: JUAN, CAN WE ESTABLISH IN ORDER TO MOVE THE CONVERSATION ALONG BECAUSE WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR A VERY LONG TIME.>>Juan: OKAY.>>Jesse: WOULD YOU CONCEDE THAT THE DEMOCRATS WERE SUSPICIOUS OF SOMETHING DONALD TRUMP DID WRONG DURING THE LAST ELECTION AND THEY USED FOREIGN COUNTRY’S HELP AND FOREIGN ASSETS TO HELP THEM INVESTIGATE DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ASSOCIATES?>>Juan: THAT’S NOT TRUE.>>Jesse: YOU CAN’T ADMIT TO THAT WE CAN’T HAVE THIS CONVERSATION.>>Juan: YOU THINK FUSION GPS IS A FOREIGN.>>Jesse: HARD GUY INVESTIGATE THIS STUFF.>>Juan: HARD NEWS.>>Jesse: PUT YOUR HARD NEWS
