Chris Wallace, FBI, President Trump discussed on Laura Ingraham

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

To Brent bear disassociate myself from the preceding remarks. Chris wallace. That's a new one that might be the best that might be good. But I want you to keep working on it. I feel what percentage of your you. And your staff's creative juices. Do you think is spent coming up with introductions to me? I would say how many hours in a date twenty four. I would say twenty okay. Twenty hours a week in the words of Paul McCartney right who never really amounted to much Frank Bruno. By the way, deserves a lot of the credits. He uses his voice, his creativity as well as Eric work at on that Eric who I've never met seems to be do a great job. He just wants me to stay in the studio. Not go beyond the glass. I think a lot of us were, you know, don't don't touch the animals. Absolutely. Hey, chris. What was it? Like seeing Bill Hemmer. Do such a great job as your replacement on Sunday. Not that good. I wasn't. I was not placed. I've watched about five minutes of it. And I said, well, this isn't any fun. Let's be honest. I mean, I'm sure you're you take a ton of time off, and you see how the people sitting there. And you must hate it. When I'm what you think will that guy could replace me in all seriousness. I never ever watch. When I'm not on almost never. Ears. Is it is it because you're scared that somebody is going to be better than you. I don't wanna fly they did a study and it's impossible for that to happen. But for somebody better, I'm going to tell you the story about my father. So, you know, Mike Wallace and everybody thinks that he legendary and one of the things as you. Well know is nobody is more neurotic than those of us in in on TV. I mean, we're all we all are completely nuts and completely convinced that we're hanging on by our fingernails, no matter how successful we are. So my father this was early in his career dot early. But certainly earlier than sixty minutes is back in the mid nineteen sixties and he was doing the CBS morning news. And there was a fellow named read Collins who used to be on the radio for CBS news. But when my father went away, he would he would substitute for him in the CBS morning news is I say back in sixty five sixty six and my father was in a. A swivel every time that read Collins was going to replace him. And they take him off the CBS morning news and put on Reed college. Read Collins had this great deep baritone radio voice Mefatha was just scared to death of him. Really? Did he come home and say that or later in Reno I just I mind meld it? How do you think he'd obviously communicated it to me? Well, that's interesting. I think it also shows most people say who have watched sports if you listen to these superstars he advocates to talk to them. They feel that they have proved themselves every day. And I remember the one example, I always give because I coached for longest time. And I will always bring in clips, and I show Derrick jeeter on gay Mike sixty seven have a fly ball into the stands. He runs by the third baseman and dives into the second row and makes the catch and he comes up bloody throws the ball in. And I had questioned. I said why did he do it? They had a question for you do goes because that's where the ball was not a guy make twenty two million dollars. It's not even my ball is a meaningless game in one hundred sixty two. But that's where the ball was. And you have to have that attitude everyday someone's catching up to you and every day you have to prove yourself. So why do you not watch the people who replaced it, and I will tell you, honestly. Some of them. I think this is a lot better show would with this replacement for Bryant, right? I've read your tweets, Chris. And I know that for sure I never listen you that's alive because I don't tweet. So a couple of things because I think about what a missing more in the news. And every time I take off for about ten years something significant would happen. I remember I took off today. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was caught every time the before either in the Trump days was something happening with there was impossible to forecast that I had to take off. And it'd be something going on the news, and I'd be rolling my eyes spiracy. I remember the CIA, you know, they they run the world, and they look at all the stuff the trilateral commission Brian's off. Let's let's a little bit less story Henry zone or maybe Pete hegseth on. So let's we'll give some news to great next grade anchors in their own in their own way. But they're not mad and the other thing is I've never booked to cruise with my family, and I'm looking forward to it. And all of a sudden, I get a call, and they say can you hold for? Can you get an Email? They say we and the EMA Yahoos rest. Well, who's who's they it was the White House? So I'm going my goodness, George Bush. What would they need? So I call and they say the president wants you to MC some military event on the on the south on and I go when is it? And it was the day I'm going on the cruise. So for you when you lose by their as big deal for me. I don't think I had even took a tour of the White House by that point. So that was part of the I less will never watch that show. So that's a maybe give you too much information. Okay. That's okay. So the crews kind nodded off there for a minute. But so are you ready for this? Sure. Here is will William Barr yesterday. Cut one. You're not suggesting though that spine occurred. Well. I guess you could I think there was spying did occur. So with that so many were beside themselves. I was not are you surprised about the uproar? No, I'm not. And I think if he had all to do over again because he kind of at the end. The sad looking back on this. What I'm really saying? Is that there was surveilled that went on which is probably a better word, and we need to see whether or not it was legitimate. Whether there was a I guess the word, they use is sufficient predicate for it of cetacean basis to to have that surveillance. And look, I think it's an absolutely legitimate question. I think something that should be fully investigated. You're going to have the inspector General Michael Horowitz of the Justice department and independent person who was pretty tough on the FBI on the way they handled the Clinton investigation supposedly according to William bar by may or June. They're going to say whether there was anything improper in actions by the FBI and the FIS of warrant and all of that in the handling of the Trump investigation. And if there's something that he doesn't handle or he was unable to come up with because of limitations of his power than you know. Maybe we end up. I hate to say it with. With another special council because I think we're all tired of that. But I think that bars rhetoric, and I know a lot of people have grave doubts about it. And I'm not saying, I don't I'm just saying I think he got a little bit ahead of himself. And I think this I there was surveillance that were actions we need to investigate him a concerned about it. I don't have any problem with any of that. Chris your show is good great on Sundays and white. So different is because you study the the things that Trump did wrong and makes them vulnerable towards this mother investigation. And you also look at the other side and say what the heck was going on with these text messages in this Peter Struck, and these anti McCabe who had a criminal referral and Komi, and what what do you doing because his interesting things in both storylines, and they're Chuck Todd's, and the others have no idea, what is going on that it is not some crazy. Tinfoil hat series of story. That Donald Trump feels like he was spied on counterintelligence investigation from July today, and they don't understand still to this day. What legitimate? We started at. And why he wasn't informed of it. The other side does not even have interest in it. So when he said spying, they said, are you kidding me? Talking about Chuck Todd talked about gas lighting America by talking about. I I agree with you. I think that you have to have an. You have to have an open mind about this stuff. And I think you know, when I criticized people on both sides, you have to have an open mind did the president did the people around him do anything wrong, and you also have to and just because you may think that you know, two things can be true that people around the president did something wrong. But the FBI also, you know, went over the line and some of the actions, they took so you have to have an open mind, and you have to be willing to accept at least evidence. Listen to evidence on both sides, Julian Assange, arrested hold out of the Ecuador embassy in Britain. It looks like we have charges on them. We want him extradited. They have problems because he violated a bail deal where do you think this story's going, and in your mind, Chris from what you know is he a hero or villain? I I I don't have an open mind on he's available. Thank ours. I'm concerned that I know a lot. Thank you. I agree, but not many honestly a lot of people. In a conservative world. Thank he's a hero. I don't get it. This is a guy who published I think one hundred thousand pages is something of Chelsea Manning's. Documents some of which endangered national security, it he was a he was a an accomplice to the Kremlin in some of the information that you know, you can sit there and say, well, I'm glad that the pedestrian formation came out it came out because the the the Kremlin or the Russian intelligence, hacked it. And I don't see how this guy is a hero. And as far as I'm concerned, he can spend a lot of time in prison in the United States in Pam Anderson. I will say what is this superficial of me when I saw him being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy, and he did not look happy about that. I thought you know with kind of bald head and the David Letterman beard, I thought. Wow, Pam Anderson was attracted to that right now. That's very real of you that is that's up that is not going to be in the teleprompter on Sunday. I'm sure, but it's good of you to give is here with us. I want you stupid. And you couldn't be happier. No. It's a conversation. Hey, eric. Where's that? Cut of Jay Johnson this morning full moments. Secretary President Obama when he talked about Assange can we hear that currently aided and assisted in the leak of classified information. Now at some point there may be debate about whether he is legitimate journalist, and that was legitimate journalistic activity, but I do not regard him as a hero. So either do I with this is the thing if Chris, you know, some of our colleagues do, but but here's here's a quick. Here's a journalistic question, if you get this information that reveals America tactic Saudi Arabia's relationship with Iran, how we might have been working with Saudi Arabia against Iran,.
