THE NORTH LAWN OF THE
WHITE HOUSE, OUR HEADLINER THIS
MORNING.
GOOD MORNING.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
IT IS A PIVOTAL MOMENT AS CHAD
SAID IN OUR COUNTRY'S HISTORY.
WE SEE WHAT IS ABOUT TO UNFOLD
IN THE COMING DAYS AND WEEKS.
WHAT IS THE PRESIDENT SAYING
THIS MORNING ABOUT THE
IMPEACHMENT PROCESS?
>> THE PRESIDENT IS STILL
TALKING ABOUT THE MONUMENTAL
TRADE DEAL.
THE DOW JONES MAKING HISTORY.
IT WAS HISTORIC BUT FOR A
DIFFERENT REASON.
NANCY PELOSI'S FIST BUMPS AND
HIGH FIVES AND COMMEMORATIVE
PENS.
IT WAS EMBARRASSING.
IT WAS ANYTHING BUT SOLEMN AND
BIPARTISAN.
I THINK THAT SHE REALLY SCREWED
UP THIS PROCESS FROM A
BEGINNING.
NEVER BROUGHT ALONG PUBLIC
SUPPORT FOR IT AND ENOUGH
EVIDENCE --
BRIBERY, EXTORTION, THE MUELLER
REPORT, THE QUID PRO QUO'S, ALL
OF THE A PROMISE, MANY OF THE
THINGS THAT SOME OF THEIR
WITNESSES UNDER OATH INSISTED
WOULD BE INCLUDED ARE SIMPLY NOT
THERE.
THIS PRESIDENT IS BARRELING
FORWARD AS PRESIDENT, AS
COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF KEEPING THIS
ECONOMY HUMMING, GETTING THEIR
TRADE DEALS WITH CHINA.
TODAY, THE USMCA WILL BE VOTED
ON ONE HOUR BEFORE THE ARTICLES
OF IMPEACHMENT.
TALK ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING
THE PEOPLE'S BUSINESS AND THE
MEMBERS WHO ARE IGNORING THE
PEOPLE.
I THINK SO DESPERATE, TO GET
THIS PRESIDENT THAT THE
DEMOCRATS AND THEIR FRIENDS AND
ALLIES IN THE MEDIA ARE PROPPING
UP AND INDICTED CRIMINALS.
MAYBE EVEN NOMINATING THE
SOCIALISTS WERE PRESIDENT.
GET HIM AT THE BALLOT BOX.
THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO
THAT.
THEY WASTE THEIR TIME AND THEIR
MONEY --
>> Bill: LETS GO FEW THINGS
QUICKLY.
IS THAT A GENERAL CONSENSUS OF
THE WHITE HOUSE?
>> IT SEEMS ABOUT RIGHT FOR THE
FOLLOWING REASON, BILL.
WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT SHORT
OR LONG OR PROTRACTED OR BRIEF.
FULL AND FAIR WITH SUCH AN
EVIDENCE AS WEAK ARTICLES, AT
THESE TWO ARTICLES EVERY WEEK.
OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS COMING
OUT OF THE PROGRESS OF THE HOUSE
BUT WE DON'T NEED TO HAVE A
PROTRACTED LENGTHY TRIAL.
THIS WILL BE MUCH MORE FAMILIAR
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
>> Bill: THE PRESIDENT WILL
HAVE FOUR ATTORNEYS PRESIDENT.
>> YES, HE WILL PITY IS THAT
RIGHT.
>> Bill: WHAT IS THEIR DEFENSE
STRATEGY?
>> I CREATED DEFENSE IS A GREAT
OFFENSE.
MEANING THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE
TO DO THINGS THEY COULDN'T DO IN
THE HOUSE.
CHALLENGE OTHERS AND PUT THEIR
COMMENTS INTO THE RECORD UNDER
OATH AS TO WHAT HAPPENED AND
WHAT DIDN'T HAPPEN HERE.
I THINK THAT THIS WILL BE A MUCH
MORE FAMILIAR PROCESS TO MOST
AMERICANS WHO COULD REALLY
FOLLOW ALONG WITH WHATEVER THE
HOUSE WAS DOING AND MAKING IT UP
AS WE GO ALONG, GETTING LAW
PROFESSORS TO LECTURE THE REST
OF US AS OPPOSED TO AN ACTUAL
TRIAL WITH WHICH MOST AMERICANS
ARE VERY FAMILIAR.
I DOUBT THEY HAVE FIRST-PERSON
KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRIAL SYSTEM,
OR THEY HAVE SEEN IT IN THE TV
OR MOVIES.
THEY KNOW THAT IN A REAL TRIAL,
THE JUDGE, IF YOU WILL, IS
SITTING UP THERE.
THE CHAIRMAN OR COMMITTEE CANNOT
DO WHAT ADAM SCHIFF DID
INSULTING THE PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES THE DEFENDANT WITH
NOBODY ABLE TO OBJECT.
>> Sandra: DEMOCRATS MAKING
THE CASE FOR WITNESSES.
A LOT OF TALK ABOUT JOHN BOLTON.
REPUBLICANS ARE MAKING THE CASE,
SOME FOREIGN AGAINST HAVING
WITNESSES.
WHERE DOES THE WHITE HOUSE STAND
ON THAT?
>> THE WHITE HOUSE RESPECTS THIS
AND THAT'S ROLE AND WILL VOTE
WHETHER OR NOT TO HAVE
WITNESSES.
WE WILL LET THEM DO THAT.
I THINK WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE
TRYING TO DO HERE IS BACKDOOR
THEIR FAILURES IN THE HOUSE.
THEY RUSHED THROUGH AND SET ON
THE ARTICLES FOR A MONTH.
IT MADE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE.
I THINK SENATOR SAID IT BEST
YESTERDAY.
IT SOUNDED LIKE THEY DID NOT DO
A THOROUGH PROCESS.
YOU CAN LOOK AT THE ACTUAL
STATEMENT THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE
GONE AND GOTTEN THINGS DONE
THERE THAT THEY FAILED TO DO.
WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO BACKDOOR
IN THE SENATE WHAT THE HOUSE
FAILS TO DO?
THAT SHOULD BE ALLOWED.
>> Bill: HERE'S A QUICK SOUND
BITE FROM THE INTERVIEW LAST
NIGHT AT MSNBC PETE WILL ASK YOU
SPECIFICALLY ABOUT THIS COMMENT
HERE.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP KNEW EXACTLY
WHAT WAS GOING ON.
HE WAS AWARE OF ALL OF MY
MOMENTS.
I WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT
THE CONSENT OF RUDY GIULIANI OR
THE PRESIDENT.
I HAVE NO INTENT OR REASON TO
SPEAK TO ANY OF THESE OFFICIALS.
THEY HAVE NO REASON TO SPEAK TO
ME.
>> Bill: I SAW THE STATEMENT
LAST NIGHT.
I KNOW THAT HE INDICATED BILL
BARR AND THE DOJ SAID IT IS 100%
FALSE.
WHAT IS THE WHITE HOUSE POSITION
ON THE ALLEGATIONS THAT HE IS
NOW PUMPING?
>> PEOPLE WHO GO ON TV ARE NEVER
UNDER OATH.
HE CAME FORWARD ON HIS OWN
VOLITION.
HE WAS ARRESTED AND INDICTED ON
SOME PRETTY SERIOUS CHARGES.
WHEN YOU HAVE THE VICE PRESIDENT
CHIEF OF STAFF MALAY SHORTS
SAYING THAT THE DEMOCRATS OWNED
WITNESSES IN THE HOUSE,
COMPLETELY SUBVERT AND UNDERCUTW
COMPLETELY SUBVERT AND UNDERCUTA
COMPLETELY SUBVERT AND UNDERCUTT
PARNAS IS SAYING HERE ABOUT THE
VP PURITY OF THE ATTORNEY
GENERAL SPOKESPERSONS SAY 100% F
GENERAL SPOKESPERSONS SAY 100% L
GENERAL SPOKESPERSONS SAY 100% E
GENERAL SPOKESPERSONS SAY 100% .
I THINK THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
THERE IS A PATTERN HERE.
THEY LOVE TO IMPROVE CREDIBILITY
AND LEGITIMACY ON WHOEVER AND
WHOEVER IS GOING TO TAKE DOWN
DONALD TRUMP.
ON TV FOR 250 SOMETHING TIMES IN
THE SPACE OF A YEAR.
SPEAKING OF INDICTED OR
DISGRACED.
IT IS MICHAEL COHEN, NOW IT IS
PARNAS.
ANYONE WHO IS OUT THERE WHO
WANTS TO TAKE DOWN PRESIDENT
TRUMP WHEN THEY ARE FACING
PROBLEMS, THEY CAN'T REDUCE THE
GLARE OF THE SPOTLIGHT, THEY ALL
OF A SUDDEN HAVE CREDIBILITY --
>> Bill: I UNDERSTAND WHAT
YOU'RE SAYING.
ARE YOU SAYING FLAT OUT, 100%
WHAT HE ALLEGES IS NOT TRUE?
YES OR NO?
>> SPEAKING OF THE COURT OF LAW,
WHEN HE SAID THE PRESIDENT KNEW
ALL OF MY MOVES, HE GAVE
CONSENT -- OBJECTION.
YOU CANNOT SAY WHAT SOMEONE ELSE
KNEW I THOUGHT.
YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
THIS IS A TV -- THAT WAS A TV
SHOW, NOT A COURT OF LAW.
THIS IS SOMEBODY WHO -- I GUESS
IT LED TO THE AUTHORITIES.
THEY WERE SETTING HIS BAIL.
HE HAS BEEN INDICTED.
I THINK YOU SHOULD GO BY WHAT
THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF HAS SAID.
THIS STARTED OUT.
WE WILL FIND THE 70,000 VOTES
AND SWITCH THE ELECTION TO
HILARY CLAVIN'S GATE AT THE END
WE ARE GOING TO DO RUSSIAN
COLLUSION.
THEY WILL HAVE TWO YEARS OF A
MUELLER INVESTIGATION.
CAN'T FIND ANYTHING THERE.
THE MAJOR NETWORKS HAVE SPENT
LESS THAN 1% --
>> Bill: BACK ON PARNAS,
SORRY.
IS HE LYING OR NOT, KELLYANNE?
>> HE IS A PROVEN LIAR.
HE HAS BEEN INDICTED.
LOOK, I HAVE NEVER HEARD THE
PRESIDENT MENTION TO ME A SINGLE
TIME.
JUSTICE THE CAMPAIGN MANAGER FOR
2016, NO ONE EVER SAID TO ME,
YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE HAVE A PLAN B.
THERE IS A RIP CORD WE CAN PULL
IF IT'S GETTING REALLY BAD AND
THE POLLS, WE HAVE A SECRET PLAN
TO BEAT HER.
IT'S THIS RUSSIAN STUFF.
I DIDN'T SPEAK TO RUSSIANS.
IN MOSCOW, IN THE COOK COUNTY
MICHIGAN, THE SAME THING HERE.
THE IDEA THAT YOU NEED TO
INVESTIGATE THE BIDENS TO DEFEAT
JOE BIDEN.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN WHEN HE
TRIES TO PUT A SENTENCE TOGETHER
ON A DEBATE STAGE?
NO ONE NEEDS ANY HELP BEATING
JOE BIDEN.
EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED IS
RIGHT THERE WHEN THEY SPEAK.
>> Sandra: TO JUST FINISH ON
THAT POINT, IT IS A "YES" OR
"NO" QUESTION.
IS THAT STATEMENT TRUE OR FALSE?
>> TRUMP KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON,
HOW?
HE SAID THAT PRESIDENT KNEW ALL
OF MY MOVES.
I WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT
CONSENT OF THE PRESIDENT.
WHERE DID HE GET CONSENT OF THE
PRESIDENT TO DO THAT?
THE PRESIDENT KNEW WHAT?
YOU HEARD THE CALL.
WITH PRESIDENT ZELENSKI.
THERE WAS NO CALL TO INVESTIGATE
THE BIDENS.
"NEW YORK TIMES," NEW YORKER,
CNN, BAYHILL, FOX NEWS.
EVERYONE WAS TALKING ABOUT
HUNDRED BIDENS DUBIOUS BUSINESS
DEALINGS.
THEY WERE FAIR GAME AND WOULD
HELP DERAIL HIS PRESIDENCY.
JOE BIDEN IS SEEN MORE AS
HUNDRED BIDENS OTHER THAN
BARACK OBAMA'S VICE PRESIDENT.
>> Sandra: THERE ARE STILL
QUESTIONS THERE.
WHEN IT COMES TO THE STATE OF
THE UNION AND PROGRESSION OF
EVENTS WE ARE ABOUT TO SEE, SOME
REPUBLICANS ARE URGING THE
PRESIDENT TO DELAY THE STATE OF
THE UNION THAT IS SET TO HAPPEN
TWO WEEKS AFTER THE SENATE TRIA
TRIAL.
DOES THE PRESIDENT HAVE ANY
PLANS -- TO BE -- WHERE HE HAS
JUST BEEN CHARGED OF HIGH CRIMES
AND MISDEMEANORS?
NOT MY DECISION TO MAKE, BUT I
CAN SEE WHY THAT MIGHT BE UNDER
CONSIDERATION.
IT IS THE PRESIDENT CONSIDERING
MOVING THAT?
>> WE HAVE FEBRUARY 4TH CIRCLED
ON OUR CALENDARS.
IF THAT HAS NOT CHANGED AS OF
THIS MORNING.
DELAYING IS JUST BECAUSE
NANCY PELOSI PROMISED 6 OF 7
IMPEACHMENT MANAGERS WERE FOR
AND PREACHING THE PRESIDENT
BEFORE THE WHISTLE-BLOWERS.
SHE HAD PICKED HAVE ALREADY --
IT IS AN IMPEACHMENT PROCESS.
JUST BECAUSE THEY DID THAT
SENATE WHERE THE PRESIDENT WILL
BE ACQUITTED IS NOT REASON
ENOUGH TO DELAY THE STATE OF THE
UNION.
I WILL LEAVE THAT DECISION TO
THE PRESIDENT.
AS OF RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A
MEETING WITH HIM TODAY ABOUT IT.
JOHN SAYS HE HAS NOT ALLOWED
THIS NONSENSE TO STOP WHAT HE'S
DOING AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND
AS PRESIDENT, THE STEWARD OF OUR
DOMESTIC ECONOMY, HE IS ON HIS
WAY SOON.
WE HAVE THE USMCA BEING VOTED ON
TODAY.
THE ECONOMY HAS NEVER BEEN
BETTER.
TODAY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY IS
A VERY BIG DAY HERE IN THE TRUMP
QUITE HOUSE.
THERE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO TAKE
ACTION AND HAVE AN OVAL OFFICE
EVENT AT 2:00 P.M. TODAY TALKING
ABOUT PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF
STUDENTS TO PRAY, TO EXPRESS
WHATEVER THEIR RELIGIOUS
DENOMINATION IS IN SCHOOL SPIRIT
AND TO MAKE SURE OUR AGENCIES
ARE NOT DISCRIMINATING AGAINST
REGULATORY THE WAY THE LAST
