don't let them print alas I wish and I don't like it's fake news so senator may I may I direct you to Glenn Beck dot com where we have laid this all out and I'm not using other people's reporting I have the direct evidence in their own words from state department documents from DNC documents we have payments we have videotape of them admitting to this we have the court documents out of Ukraine we have the official documents and it is so out Regis that the press is saying that these are conspiracy theories that separates after the you know what reporters can span reporters can do whatever they want documents do not lie and the documents outline all of it and it's all in their own words when you look at chair a mellow who is possibly the whistle blower his fingers are all over all of that this is why Donald Trump blew a hole in a wall and he was a hand grenade hand he and Rudy Giuliani went off and they blew a hole in the wall that exposed all of this stuff that was going behind the scenes in Ukraine and our former administration Clinton and the state department and members of our intelligence community were all involved and we have the documents the question is will the

don't know I'm I'm I'm labor I'm not management the Senate I'm not a committee chair I will tell you that I'm as you alluded to I've gotten a lot of push back from my democratic plans about my statement that both you Russia and Ukraine tried to influence the election I think they're worried some hal Betty meaning that Ukraine tried the influence for election which some time somehow hurt their impeachment proceedings against the president I don't understand that I'm napping most fair minded people recognize that the Ukrainian government in the past not the people but the government under president Poroshenko and president unique of the H. the government should all and more organically and historically hello out and I think that's been been been well documented it has been and we exploited when I say we the Democratic Party and the former administration exploited that corruption and it is it is vital that that is exposed if it is not the state department is going to know from here on to the end of time they run the show and they can do whatever they want it also will institutionalize the kinds of things that the Democratic Party was doing in Ukraine to try to thwart our election look if Donald Trump well would've been found as coordinating or in collusion with the Russians I would have been for impeachment on him but he wasn't they didn't find that evidence but that evidence is available in documents in court documents to people work were a were the tried and convicted in Ukrainian court two people for interfering in our election to try to help Hillary Clinton win if we don't get a handle on this our elections and the the this whole the whole system is in question I don't care who goes to jail I want a fair election system what you are correct there was a federal District Court and kia in December of two thousand and eighteen which will hold that senior Ukrainian officials did metal did try to influence the presidential election in the United States

now I didn't make this up in in fact number news is only reporting what a Ukrainian Courtney at out my democratic friends say doctor hill who testified in president trump's impeachment proceedings in the house says this is all Russian propaganda and my response to that is well first I don't think politico in the Financial Times and the L. magazine in the Washington examiner and Bloomberg news all our agents for Latimer here's a thought I don't believe that and secondly doctor hill is certainly entitled to her opinion I'm just saying I don't believe these articles by reputable members of the

Here is Senator John Kennedy unloading on the Democrats go Jake, I will be very blunt chairman Neil. Powerful man, had a ways and means.

There's no requirement that he KARN over taxes. If I were running for president what I turn over my taxes. Yeah. But there's no requirement and Trump said I'm not going to turn up my taxes. They're being audited. The American people knew that when when they voted. For him or didn't vote for him. He won the election. And Mr. Neil, you know, I don't mean any disrespect, but he's not fooling anybody. He just wants to get these taxes to screw with the president. Let's let's look at it this way for a second year. And he's right. I think he's one hundred percent, correct. Okay. Let's look at who. It is the chairs what committees? I'm not even gonna get into subcommittees.
