thanks so much for watching. and remember, you can't take it with you. w w w w w w w w w w we basketball? ♪ ♪ maria: good sunday morning, everyone. thanks for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo, joining me if exclusively this morning, senate judiciary chairman lindsey graham is here. he is proposing a deep dive into the origins of the trump-russia probe after the special counsel finds there was no collusion. we will also get his reaction to the crisis on the southern border and the president's latest push on health care. all this as the senator launches his own re-election campaign with a special guest alongside him. then, new jersey congressman jeff van drew is here joining us exclusively with democratic reaction to the mueller report, plus his take on that senate vote on the green new deal last week. he's a member of the blue dog
coalition. can he and fellow democrats find common ground with republicans to get anything done next two years? and former oversight committee chairman trey gowdy is here. as a lawmaker, he was one of the first to raise questions about the russia collusion narrative. now there are questions as to how far republicans should go in investigating the investigators. all that ahead on "sunday morning futures." ♪ ♪ maria: we begin this morning with attorney general william barr telling lawmakers he expects to deliver a redacted version of the mueller report by mid april, a few weeks later than the deadline set by house democrats. the special counsel investigation, of course, found that the trump campaign did not collude with russia to influence the 206 election but -- 2016 election but deferred to barr on the question of obstruction.
today "sunday morning futures" marks its fifth year anniversary on the air. we promise to continue following the facts wherever they lead and keeping you -- our much-appreciated viewer -- as well informed as possible. over a year and a half this program has done just that by asking the tough questions about the circumstances that actually led to it. we've continually brought back the republican lawmakers who learned of critical information early on that cast doubt on the collusion narrative. we've challenged democrats to respond to that evidence, and we've talked to president trump himself. let's take a look back now as the investigation unfolded to get us to where we are today. we have been hearing bits and pieces of this so-called russia probe, so-called collusion between trump and the russians with absolutely zero evidence. is that the insurance policy? was peter strzok basically
saying to his mistress, look, we're just going to keep investigating donald trump should he win? >> boy, it surely reads that way, but the only way we're going to know that is to interview lisa page and peter strzok. maria: what bothers people out there is you have to be able to trust your fbi, cia, irs, because there is a thing called rule of law. we've learned there's a whole lot of bias and corruption going on at the top. tell us what you've learned. >> and it's important to emphasize there are tens of thousands of great men and women who solve crimes at the fbi, but they are being besmirched by several people in the leadership of the fbi that have a shocking contrast in the way they took, the approach they took to the clinton investigation and the one they've taken to the trump investigation. maria: you joined us four weeks ago on this program. at that time you said you wanted to get the electronic communication from the department of justice and the
fbi, you wanted electronic communications to understand exactly how the trump investigation into collusion even began. you've now seen the electronic communication, yes? >> that's correct. so it took us a long time to actually get this, what's called the electronic communication. as we now know, for your viewers, it's the original intelligence, the original reasons that the counterintelligence investigation was started. now, this is really important to us because the counterintelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on american citizens. so we've long wanted to know, well, what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation? so what we found now, after the investors or have reviewed it, is that, in fact, there was no intelligence. >> if you ask the fbi today how much of the dossier is verified, almost none. and the verification comes from open media sources.
this dossier was prepared by a foreign agent paid by the democratic party and used to get a fisa warrant, and the fbi, former fbi director did not know that it was a political document paid by a political party. to me, that is stunning. maria: right. >> not only -- maria: so had -- >> was the investigation a joke, the dossier was used inappropriately. maria: so how do you call yourself someone who, you know, agrees with and follows the rule of law if, in fact, you used a piece of garbage as, you know, the reason to wiretap and listen in on an american citizen? any comments on peter strzok and these testimonies that we're seeing, rod rosenstein, christopher wray? why don't you just direct your subordinates to get those documents over to congress? are you going to do it? >> so i have this country running like a top. we really have a great group of people. the one thing i want to stay uninvolved in -- at least for now, i may get involved, but
i've been told by by so many people don't get involved. it's not good. and they'll get the documents, and it's getting, and they're getting them, and they're great people. i didn't like the scene the other day where everybody's screaming at each other. you know, i don't like that because it's bad for the country. if russia is, in fact, looking to sow discord or chaos, they've got to be saying this is the greatest thing we've ever done, okay? now, there's no collusion with me, there's no russia with me -- maria: i know that. >> there's no nothing. honestly, it's a disgrace. maria: i see all of the evidence, i got it. and i un, i think, what took place in 2016, and yet it hasn't resonated with the broad public as much. it's incredible that they've thrown out their ideals, their values of all of the things we hold dear, our freedoms, wiretapping someone for no reason because it's donald trump. >> yeah. you know, number one i'm really discouraged as a former justice department official who gave 17 years of his life to the justice
department to see a justice department under sessions that will do nothing about this. maria: they had informants trying to lure campaign officials to get them into meetings. they had a media leak strategy the apparently, all the while knowing that there was no collusion. i mean, this is just extraordinary, congressman. >> more than 70 withinses appeared before the -- witnesses appeared before the house intelligence committee. all of them were asked the same question, what evidence do you have of russian collusion with donnell trump or the trump campaign? what evidence do you have of conspiracy? what evidence do you have of coordination? and they batted a thousand in their response. these are folks like susan rice and samantha powers, senior doj and department officials in intelligence and law enforcement officials, and they all said we don't have any. maria: we've covered this a lot for the last year and a half, and we know there was real fisa abuse where the fbi did not tell the fisa judge who paid for the dossier that it was a political document, etc. are you going to pursue that?
are you going to seek the truth there? >> maria, thats' not accurate, and i've looked at -- maria: what's not accurate, sir? >> that the justice department in any way misled the judge. i understand that that's the republican talking point -- maria: no, no, no, i didn't say misled. they did not tell the judge that the democrats paid for the dossier. that's a fact. how are you going to get anything done with all of this? >> this should never happen to another president. what happened to me, they came up with an excuse for losing an election. this should never happen to another president because most presidents wouldn't be able to take it. i know the politicians, i know what we're dealing with. most people wouldn't be able to take it. let me tell you something, maria, what happened to me should never happen to another president of the united states. maria: and that clip was just one day before the actual summary was released by the a.g., joining me right now is south carolina senator lindsey graham, the senate judiciary
chairman who has promised a deep dive on fisa abuse. he also sits on the appropriations, foreign relations and budget committees. senator, thanks so much. >> happy fifth anniversary. maria: this is good news because we know we have within seeking the truth -- been seeking the truth for the last year and a half. kudos to you and your colleagues for bringing us that information. what are you going to do in terms of next steps? >> well, there are three things i'm going to look at as judiciary chairman; the clinton e-mail investigation, why did comey take over the investigation? i'd like to talk to lynch and comey. i'd like to find out whether or not they basically were in the tank for clinton and gave her a pass. when it comes to the counterintelligence investigation, i want to find out why they never went to trump to tell him he may have a problem with people in his campaign working with the russians. you know, they told feinstein she had somebody in her office working with the chinese. why didn't they do that with
trump? and the last thing is the fisa warrant, how could this document, the dossier, be used to get a warrant against an american citizen four times and it's still unverified to this day? maria: yeah, you know, it's interesting because we have covered the fact that there were two investigations going on at the same time, the so-called trump collusion and the hillary clinton investigation -- >> rightmaria: more -- into her e-mails. but based, she said they got word from the fbi that the doj was not going to press charges. even before the exoneration letter that jim comey wrote, they were told don't even go there in terms of gross negligence, right? >> yeah. so it seems to me that she was interviewed not under oath. she had a couple of her staff people with her. people in her campaign were given immunity without anything in return. nobody in the clinton investigation went to jail for lying about the process because there was no process. and i know bill barr pretty well, and he's pretty upset
about the way all this was handled. i don't know if he's going to have a special prosecutor to look at the probability of criminal misbehavior. i'm going to look at what happened from an oversight role. but i hope there's a special counsel appointed to look at doj corruption and political bias, you know? because mueller did his job against trump. nobody's really looked at the clinton campaign, the fisa warrant abuse or the counterintelligence investigation for criminality yet and somebody should. maria: so so could an investigation into hillary clinton be reopened at this point then? >> not so much worried about retrying her, but i want to make sure that the public understands that she got away with something they wouldn't get away with. maria: yeah. >> i think it's important to understand that political bias probably drove the clinton outcome, not the facts. i really don't believe that comey just took over the investigation from lynch based on a tarmac meeting.
i just want the american public to know that the standard used against clinton is an outlier. it's not the way business is done. and why did they choose that path. i think they had a political bias. they wanted clinton to win, trump to lose, and he's the point: how could she win if the department of justice indicted her? i think that's what drove the decision, they wanted her or to win. maria: you would think that william barr as the new attorney general wants america to trust that the9 fbi and the doj are not getting politics involved in their investigations, that it's actually based on the rule of law. do you think as a result of that he will seek this truth? >> yeah. i know he will seek this truth. and this -- my job is to find out how the system got off track, to provide oversight. do we need to rewrite the fisa laws to make sure this never happens again. do we need to have congressional rules about counterintelligence investigations of presidential campaigns. but somebody needs to look at the behavior and see if they
violated the law. mueller looked at the trump campaign extensively. nobody's taken a look at the other side, and i hope bill barr will either appoint if a special counsel to do that or do it himself because it's important that both campaigns be looked at, not just one. maria: you've already are delivered a ton of testimony and evidence for the attorney general to look at. you have also told us in the last several weeks that you're going to be asking the people who signed the warrant to spy on carter page to testify. when are you going to be announcing that? >> well, may 1st barr's going to bring the mueller report over, and to all these people who believe that somehow the summary given by attorney general barr is inaccurate, that's ridiculous. do you think bill barr would risk his entire life's reputation by putting out a summary of a 400-page report that didn't get it right? the conclusions are there was no collusion, there was no obstruction, and we'll see the whole report redacted for
classified information, grand jury testimony may the 1st. and if after that i'm going to turn into, turn toward looking at the counterintelligence investigation, how the clinton e-mail investigation was handled and fisa abuse. maria: so what about the full report? do you think he should release the full report? because the last time i checked, our judicial system wasn't such that we say, oh, we've investigated you for two years, but by the way, what you did here looked really shady, and what you did there got us stuck on a couple of things. it's either indictment or no indictment, charges or no charges. what do you think about releasing the full report? >> well, you know, comey violated that principle by saying, you know, we find evidence of -- she was extremely careless but not criminally liable for the clinton e-mail debacle. so what i want to do, this has been two years, $25 million. i want to protect grand jury testimony, protect classified information, but i want the public to see the underlying
document. maria: right. >> this has been a cloud over president trump for two years. that cloud has been removed, and i want people to see why barr concluded what he did and why mueller concluded what he did. maria: let's take a short break. i want to get your feelings on how trump reacted. you were with him last -we're doing karaoke later, and you're gonna sing. -jamie, this is your house? -i know, it's not much, but it's home. right, kids? -kids? -papa, papa! -[ laughs ] -you didn't tell me your friends were coming. -oh, yeah. -this one is tiny like a child. -yeah, she is. oh, but seriously, it's good to be surrounded by what matters most -- a home and auto bundle from progressive. -oh, sweetie, please, play for us. -oh, no, i couldn't. -please. -okay. [ singing in spanish ] -please. -okay. but super poligrip gives him a tight seal. snacking can mean that pieces get stuck under mike's denture. to help block out food particles. so he can enjoy the game. super poligrip.
my mom washes the dishes... ...before she puts them in the dishwasher. so what does the dishwasher do? cascade platinum does the work for you, prewashing and removing stuck-on foods, the first time. wow, that's clean! cascade platinum. maria: we are back with senator lindsey graham. senator, you were actually with the president a week ago when the report had just been released to the congress, the summary from the a.g., what was the president's mood? were you guys talking about it? >> well, he was very pleased that everything he'd been saying for two years proved to be right. if you know president trump, and i've gotten to know him pretty well, there is no way he sat down with the russians and came up with a plan and followed it. he doesn't come up with, you know, he doesn't collude with his own government. so this whole thing was ridiculous if you know the president, and it's proven to be ridiculous. and i told him about a thousand times there's one person that can clear you of this, and it's
mueller. and i want people to understand that mr. mueller for two years looked at this very hard. he came out with the conclusion there was no collusion, and jim clyburn said, as a democrat, we need to move on. adam schiff represents a wing of the democratic party, the oliver stone wing of the democratic party, that will never let this go because they can't accept trump being president. maria: yeah. >> this whole investigation's been pushed by people who believe that the election never really happened when it did. maria: yeah. just to wrap up here on this, you're not expecting jail time, you're not expecting, you know, criminality to come out in terms of accountability? i know devin nuñes is coming out -- >> i don't know. maria: where will the accountability be then? >> well, you need a special -- i'm not a prosecutor. you know, and horowitz9 is not a prosecutor. so what i want is a prosecutor to look at the clinton the e-mail investigation to find out if there was criminal i don't
think doing in the way it was -- wrongdoing in the way it was handlessed. -- handled. whether or not they misused the counterintelligence tools inappropriately, did they break the law when they spied on trump's campaign. i want a prosecutor rt to look at whether or not those who signed the affidavit certified that the dossier was reliable to the fisa court, did they misrepresent to the court, did they commit a crime. i want a prosecutor to look at this not a politician. maria: yeah. that's a good point. let me switch gears and ask you about this threaten, drastic action against mexico. of the president has declared he's likely to shut down the southern border next week unless mexican authority it is immediately halt owl illegal immigration. we've got two caravans coming to the cub right now. -- country right now. your reaction to the president's threat. >> well, i mean, what are we supposed to do? you have the mexican government allowing thousands of people to walk all across mexico, they provide them buses, they drop 'em off at the border, and they
say here, united states, deal with this problem. we've had 100,000 people cross the border illegally in march alone. we're on track to over a million this year if this keeps up. so mexico could help more, they should help more. the triangle country, 70% of the people coming here come from three countries. we need those countries to help more. so if the president feels like the only way to control this person is to move people from the port of entry to the ungoverned spaces, i will support him. i hope we don't have to do that. to my democratic friends, let's sit down and change these laws that end tice people to come here illegally -- entice people. maria: i want to keep talking about this and your re-election campaign. campaign. stay with us, senator lindsey (whispers) with the capital one venture card... you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, campaign. stay with us, senator lindsey

♪ ♪ >> i gotta tell you, when you look at what senator lindsey graham has meant to this nation, to our national defense, what he has meant to a growing economy, the way he stood shoulder to shoulder with this president in seeing more conservatives appointed to our federal courts in the last two years than any administration in american history and now you see him, south carolina, as the chairman of the judiciary committee -- [cheers and applause] i'm here to say we need six more years of senator lindsey graham! [cheers and applause] maria: and we are back with senator lindsey graham after an exciting night. he's just kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign with a little help from the vice president, mike pence. [laughter] >> a little help. thank you, mike and karen, for coming down and making a hell of a case for me to get reelected. yeah, i'm looking forward to it. i'm sold, i'm ready to vote for
me, let's do it. [laughter] maria: you've got a lot of fans occupant there. health care is, obviously, one of the most important issues in terms of your re-election, the prime minister's re-election, and the president this week said that the republican party is going to become the party of health care. i don't know if everybody agrees with that, because you've got to have a plan. do you think republicans have a plan? >> yeah, i've got a lot of good ideas, i'm going to challenge my democratic colleague, libertarians, vegetarians to replace obamacare. we started out with five plans in south carolina. we're down to one. premiums went up 31% last year. obamacare has failed in south carolina. it needs to be replaced with plans that require the pre-existing conditions to be covered but more flexibility, more choices. so i'm going to run on health care. my idea is to take the money in washington, send it back to south carolina, cover suck people but let my -- sick people but let my state come up with the plan that fits south
carolina and get out from this obamacare umbrella in washington that's crushing us. the supreme court, i believe, will strike obamacare down. the only reason roberts voted to uphold obamacare is because the individual mandate was considered to be a tax, and the government can tax almost anything. now the individual mandate has been struck out of the law. i think it falls. so here's my plan, to take the money in washington, block grant it back to the states, give the people of south carolina control of this money not some bureaucrat in washington, and we'll do a better job than anybody in washington could ever hope to do for south carolina. that is my plan. maria: and we'll be following that. and, of course, national security has been also a major theme for you. you've been a stalwart in terms of being strong for the military. not just our troops around the world, buttal when it comes to cyber. -- also when it comes to cyber. china is an issue. we got some new data overnight, the china manufacturing gauge, the purchasing managers hit a
six-month high. it was actually a positive for the chinese economy, but the economy has weakened because of trade. what are your expectations in terms of a deal between the u.s. and china, and how much should we focus on things like huawei and the risks to the u.s. national security as a result of all the espionage going on, senate? >> because of president trump, this is the best chance we've had to stop china from cheating in my lifetime. china steals our intellectual property. if you do business this china, they're required to have a chinese business partner. no business in south carolina can compete with the government of china, so trump has decided to take china on. their economy has been crippled because of these tariffs. we will get a great deal or we will have no deal at all. somebody needs to bring china to heel, somebody needs to make 'em play fair, and i am standing behind president trump. when it comes to china, you've got to experience some pain to make them stop cheating us. so is in terms of the 5g
movement, huawei, to our european friends, if you go into a chinese 5g network, you're going to have a hard time doing business with the american economy and the american national security infrastructure because it will become a spy platform. so president trump's done two things. he's put the world on knowledge, we can't do business with with you if you go chinese 5g, and he's also told the high news your days of cheating are over, and we need to stand behind our president, and i will. maria: mike pompeo came on the show and talked about how he's trying to make the case to europe because they're pushing back because the huawei infrastructure was cheaper. what about north korea? why did the president leave early, that meeting with kim jong un? >> was he felt -- because he felt like kim jong un wasn't serious about getting a deal. you've got to be willing to walk. nobody's had north korea in the spot we have today because president trump got north korea's attention because he
pushed back hard. he told them in no uncertain terms you're going to give up your nuclear weapons and your missiles that can hit america, but i'm willing to give you a great deal in return. we're talking to north korea from a position of strength. he walked away, and i would suggest to the north koreans, to the chinese and to the jalapeno these and south koreans -- japanese and south koreans that you help president trump find a way to end this. make sure that north korea gives up their nuclear weapons, their missile technology that can threaten american homeland, in return provide security and prosperity in north korea. everybody before trump talked a lot and did nothing. for the first time we finally got north north korea's attentid china needs to help us. maria: what are your priorities beyond that? it feels like you're up against the democrat platform that in many ways is looking more and more socialist whether it's medicare for all, green new deal, big federal programs that are running people's lives.
>> medicare for all means medicare for nobody. can you imagine finally getting on medicare after waiting all these years and bernie sanders invites 80 million of his closest friends to join you? that will collapse medicare as we know it. it will be inferior health care. my goal is to run on the idea that we should take the obamacare dollars, block grant them back to the states, make sure that sick people are covered and allow states to figure this out, have innovation at the state level because nobody's ever going to figure out anything in washington. when it comes to the tax cold, keep taxes down. do not destroy the economy by trying to help the environment. the green new deal will never protect the environment because it destroys the economy. that will be the end of the american economy. my goal is to put as many conservative judges on the court as possible. president trump's greatest legacy will be reshaping the court. my goal is to stand behind the president to rebuild the military, stand up to china -- maria: yeah. >> -- put aaron that -- iran in
a box and stand by our friends like israel. i've got a very specific agenda, and it includes health care. maria: all right, it's a tall order, senator. we'll be watching. thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you. maria: next up, democrat congressman jeff van drew. congressman jeff van drew. so, you're open all day, that's what 24/7 means, sugar. kind of like how you get 24/7 access to licensed agents with geico. hmm? yeah, you just go online, or give them a call anytime. you don't say. yep. now what will it take to get 24/7 access to that lemon meringue pie? pie! pie's coming! that's what it takes, baby. geico®. great service from licensed agents, 24/7. they feel like they have to drink a lot of water. patients that i see that complain about dry mouth, medications seem to be the number one cause for dry mouth. dry mouth can cause increased cavities, bad breath, oral irritation. i like to recommend biotene.
should be redacted. some democrats are pushing for the full report with no redactions and they would like that by this tuesday, this their deadline. we have tom, it's good to see you again. thank you for being here. your reaction to all of this. your push for your colleagues wanting the report asap. >> really quickly, i want to congratulate you on five great years. your ho honesty, hard work, you listen other viewpoints. congratulations. >> thank you so much for that. i'm honored. >> it's true. as far as -- look, certain areas have to be redacted because of the law itself and nature of the council. this is special council and it's a different situation.
it requires that we do this carefully and fully. both sides of the aisle would like to see it and hopeful by we are done with it. >>reporter: adam shift said collusion is in plane sight. they say it's there and subpoena the attorney general. here you are in the middle trying to do things abdomen come up with ideas to move the needle on growth and impact peoples lives. i want to get into your idea of healthcare and drilling off the coast and why that's gotten bipartisan support. your colleagues are in on trying to take donald trump down. >> i said this before.
i talk to people a lot. i like to mix with people a lot. i get back to my district every single week. people ask about healthcare and public safety and ask me about what's going on on the border and veterans affairs and healthcare. many other issues. you know what they don't ask me about? they don't ask me about the investigation. >> yeah. >> they are getting warn out. we have to wrap this thing out. let's stop calling for trump's impeachment. we'll have an election in a year and half. we'll get all of the facts and information and all of the information will get revealed to us. if folks want to look on the other side and realize how it came about fine. let's not prolong that. i don't know why it's so hard for us to come together. on many of the major issues and
get stuff done. >> i agree with you. >> that's why we are elected. especially since most people are hanging out in the middle. you just, you want what everybody wants. safety, security, family. it's crazy. where are the areas you can work with the republicans on. i mentioned drilling off the coast. this is important, why. tell us. >> we have worked on that bipartisan as far as votes. we have two pieces of legislation important. one would prohibit the seismic testing. this is the live seismic sounds used to test were there could be oil. very harmful to the whales and fish and fish life. it hurts the fishing industry as well as drilling offshore. i'm not saying you can't do
research but offshore in our oceans these are huge multibillion dollars industries. the chamber of commerce repels and democrats. >> you would like to ban drilling off the coast. >> if it's appropriate in certain areas. off the coast in the ocean now. >>reporter: healthcare, the president said if the republicans become the party of healthcare this is obviously over and over again among the top important issue for voters. how do you fix it. >> because it's so expensive. people can't afford it number one. number two, they want to be healthy and taken care of. it's a biggish you and the republicans, quiet frankly.
democrats make mistakes. when republicans make mistakes i say it. they wanted a repeal obamacare. at that time they had no plan at all. i would like to see their plan. i would like to see a plan that would provide healthcare to our constituents at a lower cost. it will allow you to visit your doctor and have that relationship and something that will work. i heard senator graham and it's an amazing idea. the details and how it will be in new jersey and every state. >> what you said is not medicare for all. that's bernie sanders plan. >> no, i don't support that. >> one of the many hopefuls have endorsed the plan. they also endorsed the green new deal. they were either present or no vote. they weren't there.
it got a big thumbs down. something you said makes no sense. >> it doesn't make any sense. it costs trillions of dollars. we can never afford it because of the nature of it. you can't call it a plan of whatever it is. you can't keep the same form of capitalistic government that we have to do. let me talk about medicare. if our seniors are worried about medicare they should worry if we have medicare for all. we need to make sure we supply it. tray on the muller report is up ne
the finds of the special council refused your past and present thoughts. you might think it's okay the campaign chairman of a presidential campaign would offer information about that campaign to a russian person for money. i don't think that's okay. >> many are calling for adam shift to resign as chairman in the wake of the muller report. they missighted evidence of the collusion. after the report cleared the president of such a charge. joining me is trey who is a republican congressman from south carolina. he's a former chairman. congressman, it's a pleasure to see you. >> thank you. >> have you seen anything like
that. nine republicans are asking that chairman to step down. what's your reaction to his behavior. >> never seen that before. we never voted to remove or ask a chairperson to step down. he's a deeply partisan person. he did everything he could to make sure hillary clinton became president. he's done everything he could to keep a cloud over the trump presidency. the folks on the house intelligence committee are not members of the crazy caucus. they are not bomb throwers. will was a cia employee. jonny was a terrorism prosecutor. it's not part of the crazy caucus. these are reasonable republicans. the next thing that will happen is the different intelligence
communities. if you don't believe the information. if you have the president of the united states not justin indicted but in jail and you continue to leak like a screen door on a submarine we'll quit giving you information. that's when pelosi will replace adam shift with someone like jim heinz who is a lot more reasonable. >> this is a guy running around with his title and spewing out things coloring peoples knowledge. you questioned john brenon. he was over the cia. when you hear that title you stop and listen. it was back in may of 2017. you poked holes in this and the president committed treason. this is the exchange between you
