the fox business network. lou: good evening. the radical dimms contrived a political persecution of president trump they will likely soon regret. already speaker pelosi is talking about prayer, apparently praying for mercy from the low lifes in her party who concocted a scheme to impeach trump. the senseless, baseless claims that the president was somehow improper in his phone call with president zelensky of ukraine. zelensky said straight out that president trump never pressured him. and that's how the -- the transcript from their call read as well. today speaker pelosi and adam schiff leading the charge on capitol hill as is their wont in full-throated dramatic readings. they claim president trump is a threat to the republic and the constitution. the same constitution they are working to up-end. the president tore into the house intel committee chairman this afternoon. president trump: he should be forced to resign from congress. adam schiff. he should be forced to resign. he made up a conversation and reported it and said it to congress and the american people. it was horrible what he said. and that was supposed to be coming from me. but it was fabricated. this guy was negative on mike pompeo. he can't -- there is an expression, he couldn't carry his blank strap. i can't say it, they will say the was terrible to say. but he couldn't carry his blank strap. do you understand that. lou: more evidence the radical dimms are engaged in the biggest political scandal in our history or an extension of it. a report from the "new york times" finds that schiff and his staff knew about the whistleblower report days before it was even construct or filed. catherine herridge has the latest from washington. catherine: adam schiff's spokesman confirmed the whistleblower contacted the committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the intelligence community. there was a question on timing adding quote at no point did the committee review or receive the complaint in advance. chairman schiff does not know the identity of the whistleblower and has not met with or spoke within the whistleblower or his counsel. the president who got the story as it broke unload on the democratic chairman. it just happened as i am walking up here. that's a big story. he knew long before and he helped write it, too. catherine: early in the day before the schiff whistleblower connection was known within, the speaker nancy pelosi said the president's own word are proof of wrongdoing. they point to the president's request for the ukrainian president to investigate biden and his son. catherine: schiff says he expects blocks. >> we'll have to decide whether to litigate or how to litigate. we are not fooling around here, though. catherine: fox asked the whistleblower's legal team if there was as contact. they said there was no contact until nearly a month after the complaint was submitted to the intelligence community's inspector general. lou: it turns out schiff had early notice. >> you are surprised he is conspiring to level false charges against the president of the united states? the guy who claimed he had direct evidence of russian collusion? lied to the american people? as part of the other conspiracy to frame. that's why we are considering a lawsuit. remember he doesn't have immunity when he's off the floor of the congress. and his statement about having this evidence of russian collusion was made to a reporter. the supreme court case says yes, say it to congress, you are immune. put in a press release, you are liable like anybody else. we are considering a lawsuit to vindicate the constitutional rights of the president, the president's administration, to also remedy the program trampling on the civil rights of many, many people. lou: including the rights of his attorney. this is an effort to intimidate you. >> they are going after barr who is his government attorney. they are going after me who is his private community. with barr they are obstructing justice. remember they were charging the president with obstruction of justice? so why isn't it obstruction of justice if democratic senatorred reach out to foreigners and say don't cooperate with barr. it's an investigation of an alleged crime involving advanced manipulation of intelligence services in italy, the ukraine, the united kingdom and australia. that's also an attempt to interfere with the president's ability. their interference with barr is attempting to interfere with barr trying to make sure the law is executed. >> i have a good record of going after scoundrels including the mafia and the unions. they were a hell of a lot smarter than schiff. schiff should have kept his remarks on the -- floor of the house and he would have been immune. but when he starts spouting all over the place, and i'm not talking about whether he's involved in setting up the whistleblower thing. but a month before i can show him saying things remarkably similar to what the whistleblower's complaint has tonight, which is more a legal brief. it has to be a washington lawyer, i have a suspicion -- which would you be surprised if it was a democratic partisan who did it? i would be absolutely shocked. this could be the second setup, by the way. now it's time to fight back. it's time to hold these people liable for threatening to arrest the president's attorney general. that's not intimidation. it's not intimidation to threent disbar me because i'm doing my job? what's going to come out tomorrow is the refutable -- the irrefutable proof. i delivered it to them and conducted it before the mueller ways was over -- the mueller case was over. i began this investigation in november of 2018. i concluded it by the end of march. mueller had just conclude his investigation then. my key interviews were in january when mueller was still trying to frame him in the worst way possible. this evidence was valuable to me in defending him. that's why i gathered him. bind wasn't a candidate then. i didn't even think he would be a candidate. he looked like he couldn't walk across the street. lou: the president said he wanted the origins of the 2016 conspiracy against him investigated. >> the ukrainians came to me, i didn't go looking for them. they told me for a year and a half they were trying to get to the fbi. they hired a lawyer to try to get to the justice department. they couldn't get to the justice department. the reason i gave it to the state department was because my witnesses didn't trust the justice department. i tried to convince them that once bill barr was there they didn't have to worry about but they don't understand that. i delivered some of the notes i had, then i expected i would hear back, and i never heard back. they never even gave me the courtesy of calling me in to ask me about the credibility of these things. they never talked to the principal witnesses, and i think the deep state people stride to deep state it because i never heard another word about it. i bet we won't find a report of an investigation like that. that's what i would do. lou: they are tblight inspectors general. >> obama holdover? lou: correct. atkinson from the intelligence community. he is. >> he did a good job the obama justice department. this guy missed peter strzok, mccabe, comey. lou: doesn't it strike you -- he's a hell of an investigator. i don't think i would hire him when i was u.s. attorney. lou: doesn't it strike you as questionable that the national media doesn't want to discuss this? >> there is no way i can describe how disgusted i am with how corrupt the swamp media is. i knew when they told me about biden. this came to me as ukrainian collusion. in the middle i said joe biden fixed the case against his son, soros and burisma. and i said what do you mean fixed the case. he said come on, everybody in ukraine knows. didn't you see that interview? he said no i never saw the interview. he showed me the interview with biden. i said oh, my god web's guilty. he didn't mention his son. he kept his son out of it. then they gave me the documents. i have seen the underlying documents of the investigation, of the laundered money, the money that went to hunter biden from latvia to cyprus, to the u.s. i have the notes back from cyprus. per u.s. government we can't give you identities for hunter good bind and devon hunter. everybody knows they gave them out. then shokin testifies when he called he was told the u.s. embassy said don't give over the amounts on hunter bind and levon. bind said he didn't know about burisma. it's so obvious, it takes almost a corrupt mind not to see it. it's logical. what happened is logical. let me put is this way. there is any serious adult human being that thinks a multi-billionaire, ukrainian oligarch who fled ukraine, worked with russia and stole $5 billion is going to pay this kid $3 billion to $8 billion? there is anybody who thinks china would give this kid 2 cents? or were they buying and compromising the office of the vice president of the united states. an odor that was so foul that everybody in ukraine used to laugh sat joe biden when he -- laugh at joe biden when he talked with corruption in ukraine. lou: the president's attorney who has his own attorney, john sail, to represent you and all the matters attached to the impeachment inquiry. >> never authorized by a vote of congress in order to deprive the president of the right to call witnesses. the reason is to again trample his right to call witnesses in his defense. so they won't give him that right. they take his right to counsel. shokin wants to testify openly and point the finger sat biden and say he's a crook. the minute the affidavit came out they knew i had it. that's why they tried to silence me. it's no accidental i put the affidavit of shokin out. three hours later they say we demand the press not interview him. who does that other than somebody who thinks they own the press. they are trying to destroy my reputation. i get calls about did you represent somebody 10 years ago or did you do this or did you do that? i say what does it matter. why don't you investigate the case first then you can go after the process. lou: no one would have a more public record in his profession -- >> if the mafia couldn't get me and the farc, these pipsqueaks aren't going to get me. lou: we have 30 seconds to wrap up. the transcript says there is no issue. the justice department has so ruled. why in the world -- where do we go and why can't this be concluded quickly? >> because the democrats are engaged in and i illegal conspiracy to take him out of office at any cost. it doesn't matter if he's legal or illegal or they perpetuate lies. this is a plan that started with peter strzok to prevent him from getting into office and the understand plan was to frame him if he got into office. the first allegation is one that was serious. the second one is a joke. the conversation is completely meaningless. he doesn't threatening with he doesn't use money. joe biden does all that and they are trying to suppress it. lou: when do the lawsuits with you and the president begin? >> they take time to put together. i got a whole new set of allegations today that could be even more serious. maybe not. i haven't checked them out yet. lou: you are just guessing? >> i am not guessing. i have had allegations that come to me that turn out to be true. i have allegations that are idiotic, and allegations i think have true but i can't prove. lou: we'll be right back with more on whatever this is, impeachment, i guess.

we had the mueller collusion delusion. that went on for years. and that's done. no collusion, no obstruction, no nothing. it was a joke, and everyone knows it. and it was from day one. lou: president trump' on the dimms' impeachment. ronna mcdaniel joins us. how can you judge whether the president is gaining or losing support from his base. >> it's been gangbusters. the support is unlike anything we have seen before. 24 hours after nancy pelosi launched her coup attempt. we had 50,000 new small online donors. we raised $10 million within 24 hours. the energy behind our base to support this president and recognizing the corruption in the democrat party is sending our fundraising through the roof. lou: the other test is to see how this party is standing up for this president. i want to complement you and the national committee for standing up for this president. there will be a price for office holders who don't stand with this president. you can call it what you will. but it's an effort to overthrow the presidency of donald trump. >> it disenfranchises 53 million who elected this president. people keep saying to me, we want republicans to stand up for this president. democrats always stick together. we need to stick together and support our president. he's doing everything he can to make lives better for people across the country. that's why they are giving money. they are trying to under fine the vote of all 63 million people. they don't like the vote. they don't like that we elected donald trump. they think they are smarter and everybody. they are saying we are going to impeach this president and we are not going to have it. lou: schiff, pelosi, schumer, nadler, you know, whatever it i, the today dry of radical dimms is really committing a farce here. there is nothing about this contrivance, this rigged effort of putting some sort of pretext of an impeachment inquiry against what is i am any stated an attempt to overthrow the president rather than letting the voters decide in november of next year. we are 13 month away from that. this is stunning stuff, and the president has to deal with this ridiculous nonsense again, it's deeply, deeply, grossly, i think, insulting to the nation itself. >> exactly. we have learned that adam schiff was quliewghtd whistleblower's attorney, that his staff was. this is not how we conduct the business of the united states of america. the fact that she hasn't brought this impeachment vote to the floor. by not letting congress vote on it, she is preventing the minority from having seen a power. she is preventing the president from having to defend himself and bring witnesses forward. that's not the rule of law and how we conduct business in theouts of america. if she wants to be fair and praying for the country. lou: she didn't say she is praying for the country. she said be prayerful. she may be praying for forgiveness for this ruse and the rickety contraption they constructed against the president of the united states. keep up the fight and keep winning. >> go to stop the madness d dot gop. lou: a lot more after the break. performance comes in lots of flavors. there's the amped-up, over-tuned,

media for running the reports. the president called the story corrupt reporting. joining us tonight, former reagan white house director, and political analyst. ed rollins. what did you think of the president's attorney? >> it's the best interview i have seen with rudy in a long long time. i worked with him when i was number three in justice. he used to be a superb attorney, and still is a superb attorney. he made some news tonight. he laid it out. he turned this over to state. where is it? what's pompeo and his people doing over there? they are all part of the same team. why isn't this the case he made, why isn't it out? lou: pompeo has stood up for his people. he told congress they are not going to treat diplomats in the pompeo or the trump state department in the fashion they are trying to intimidate this administration. think about this. and it's stunning to consider. not only does the president have to have his lawyers as president, -- he has to have hs lawyers as an individual. rudy is chief among those personal attorneys as is attorney general barr amongst the governmental attorneys. now rudy needs an aattorney. in this case, john sale. >> just the money the staff people have spent being dragged up before hearings. you don't go before a congressional hearing without lawyers. i can tell you the moment you start hiring a lawyer, it's a couple hundred thank you dollars it's intimidation they do. i think pompeo has to stick up even more so for the president. lou: there was nothing about that call with zelensky. you don't have to be an attorney. you read it and look at it, and you you know what it is. for these leaders of the democratic party to carry out this corrupt contrivance against a president of the united states as they have done under the special counsel, spygate, you call it what you will. but they have been harassing this president, seeking to overthrow him, to subvert him, for three years. and it's still not it seems near an end. >> the reality if they want to execute the 218 votes they have to impeach him, they will do that, no matter what the facts are. the key thing is, it's not what schiff did himself. they recommend a lawyer. the lawyer has drafted this document. they know exactly what's in this document. >> it comes to a point, to hell with process. when can this president, can he basically tell congress to go to hell here? because otherwise they will have the capacity to hamstring him all the way to november of next year, and maybe that's the decision of the ultimate decision will be the voters deciding who's going to be president, who will control the house and who will control the senate. >> you can't let them fast track this. they want to get this impeachment done by thanksgiving or before. once you drag it in -- >> the question becomes how do you do that? >> you don't give them the stuff they ask more until they prove why they need it. >> why not put this before the supreme court? >> i am all for that. let the courts decide this and it will take months and months to do. expediting again, again, they got campaigns to run. and they don't want to lose their house. lou: who is they? >> nancy

president trump talking about the strong economy in his time in office, and his trait council -- this trade council president peter navarro joins us. this economy remains strong and this president is winning including at the world trade organization. peter, good to have you with us tonight. let's talk about the import of that $7.5 billion at the world trade organization against airbus, the united states prevailing. it's hard to emergency the united states is getting any kind of a reasonable break from world trade organization. here it is and congratulations. >> make no mistake about it. he never does think small. this is the largest award in world trade organization history by a factor of 2. he also did tonight trump time with ambassador lighthizer as the tip of the spear. dairy farmers, other farmers will be rejoicing because of this because they will be helped by this. lou: the china trade talks are coming up next week. up mentioned the u.s. trade representative, robert lighthizer. a lot of discussion today since the china day that 70 years of communist rule, and a heck of a parade. xi talking about nothing will stop the chinese people, nothing, nothing will stop the chinese nation. it's as bellicose as nationalistic as anything one can imagine coming from beijing. here it is. it's straight in our face. your thoughts about the impact on trade talks. >> the juxtaposition of weapons in tienanmen square pointed at america and capitalism and freedom battling communism in hong kong streets was stark on october 1. i always said, this is not a trade negotiation. it's about an economic system that china is perpetrating on the world. it has what i call the seven deadly sins. the chinese negotiator will come here but he will meet some puff negotiators on the other -- he will meet some tough negotiators on the other side of the table. lou: the wto decision gives the united states the ability to put tariffs on european goods and agricultural products. those go into effect the 18th of this month. what will be the likely reaction of that decision? >> the point of the tariffs is to make us whole. but also put pressure on the e.u. to solve this airbus subsidy problem. airbus as a company would not exist without the governments of germany and france in the u.k. it's capitalism versus socialism and europe inc. and somebody has to give. what ambassador lighthizer did was design them in a way to put pressure on the e.u. to come to the table and get that done. we'll see what happens. but this was a great victory today for president trump. they just keep piling up as all this other crud keeps going on. lou: i understand that word, and i bet most of of this audience understands it and many of its synonyms. breaking news
