5:00 IN NEW YORK CITY. THIS IS “THE FIVE”. THIS IS “THE FIVE” THIS IS “THE FIVE.” THE REPUBLICANS ARE FED UP WITH ADAM SCHIFF’S SECRET IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS. NOW THEY’RE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. FURIOUS REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMEN FOUGHT BACK BY STORMING BACK WITH THE LATEST WITNESS. REPUBLICANS ALSO HAMMERING DEMOCRATS WITH A TOTAL LACK OF TRANSPARENCY.>>BEHIND THOSE DOORS THEY INTEND TO OVERTURN THE RESULTS OF AN AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. WHAT IS ADAM SCHIFF TRYING TO HIDE?>>WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE IS NOT FAIR.>>THERE’S NO REASON THIS SHOULD BE DOWN IN A TINY ROOM WITHIN A REASON IN THE BASEMENT OF THE CAPITOL. THAT’S SO ADAM SCHIFF CAN CONTROL THE NARRATIVE, DRIVE POLLING AND CAN GET THE VOTE THAT HE WANTS, WHICH IS TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT.>>Jesse: ALL THAT ISHAPPENING WHILE THE MEDIA EATS UP THE TALKING POINTS. CHECK OUT THIS. THE PRESS REPEATING THAT THE TESTIMONY WAS DEVASTATING AND CLEAR EVIDENCE OF A QUID PRO QUO.>>UP AHEAD, MORE ON THIS DEVASTATING DAY FOR THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.>>IT’S DEVASTATING TESTIMONY.>>REALLY DEVASTATING PIECE OF EVIDENCE.>>THAT’S WHY THE TESTIMONY WAS SO DEVASTATING.>>IT’S DEVASTATING.>>DEVASTATING FROM A NATIONAL SECURITY PERSPECTIVE.>>HIS TESTIMONY IS DEVASTATING.>>SOUNDS LIKE A QUID PRO QUO DIRECTED BY THE PRESIDENT.>>IS IN FACT A QUID PRO QUO.>>TO PUSH FOR A QUID PRO QUO.>>THERE WAS IN FACT A QUID PRO QUO.>>THE VERY CLEAR QUID PRO QUO.>>THAT IS A QUID PRO QUO.>>Jesse: NOT SO FAST. REPUBLICANS IN THE ROOM SAY THE DIPLOMAT CRUMBLED UNDER QUESTIONING AND THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF A QUID PRO QUO. JUAN, DON’T YOU THINK THIS WOULD CLEAR EVERYTHING UP IF THEY DID IT IN OPEN?>>RIGHT. IT WOULD BE A LEGITIMATE PROCESS.>>Jesse: WHY NOT?>>YOU DON’T WANT TO LIBEL SOMEBODY. WHAT IF THEY SAY –>>Jesse: YOU THINK IT WOULD BE ILLEGITIMATE TO HOLD A PUBLIC IN HEAR SOMETHING.>>NO. YOU DIDN’T ASK ME THIS. YOU SAID THIS IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY IS BEING DONE IN PRIVATE TO ALLOW PEOPLE CONFIDENTIALITY, MAKE STATEMENTS AND BROUGHT FORWARD. BY THE WAY, QUID PRO QUO, HOW CAN YOU NOT — DID YOU READ WHAT BILL TAYLOR SAID? A WESTPOINT GRAD THAT SERVED IN VIETNAM, A PUSH APPOINTEE AND AMBASSADOR IN AFGHANISTAN? YOU THINK HE’S A LIAR?>>Jesse: I READ HIS OPENING STATEMENT. WHAT WE DIDN’T HEAR IS HIM UNDER CROSS EXAMINATION. THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO KNOW. IF YOU’RE GOING TO — THERE’S NO EVIDENCE OF A QUID PRO QUO. GUESS WHAT? WE DON’T — WE CAN’T EVEN PROVE THAT. YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE ANY PEOPLE ASKING QUESTIONS IN PUBLIC.>>HERE’S HIS STATEMENT. YOU CAN READ IT, JESSE. IN THE STATEMENT –>>Jesse: ANYBODY CAN MAKE A STATEMENT AND ANYBODY CAN FAIL TO ANSWER A FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS WHICH HE DID.>>YOU THINK TAYLOR IS A LIAR AND –>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE IS. I KNOW I DON’T KNOW AND YOU DON’T EITHER.>>THE PRESS — THE PRESS IS WRONG –>>Jesse: I KNOW THEY’RE CALLING PEOPLE IN SECRET AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE LEAKING TO IT “THE WASHINGTON POST.”>>I CAN READ –>>Jesse: JUAN, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR DOING THIS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.>>I’M PROUD THAT THE PRESS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CAN REPORT ON A LEGITIMATE DISTINGUISHED DIPLOMAT –>>Jesse: IT’S ALL LEAKS, JUAN. YOU KNOW IT.>>Greg: THE THING IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE SECRET TESTIMONY IS NOBODY SHOULD BELIEVE IT. IT’S — RIGHT AFTER THE BAT IT STINKS. THE WAY I LOOK AT IT, ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF A QUESTION. YOU HAVE HISTORICALLY LOW UNEMPLOYMENT. 6.4 MILLION NEW JOBS A BOOM BEING ECONOMY. SO FAR YOU HAVE PEACE AND IT’S CONTAGIOUS, JUAN. SO WHAT DOES THE ESTABLISHMENT WANT IN A SECRETLY A NONE MUSCLY DRIVEN COUP WHICH IS EGGED ON BY THE MEDIA. TO YOUR POINT, THAT’S THE THING I DON’T UNDERSTAND. THERE’S ONE EXPLANATION FOR THIS. BECAUSE OF THE RESULTS OF TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE SO FAR, THEY REALIZE THEY CAN’T BEAT HIM, SO THEY NEED TO ELIMINATE HIM. SO WHAT THEY’RE DOING, THEY’RE WILLING TO DIVIDE AND CREATE DIVISION AMONG OUR COUNTRY AS A POLITICAL WEAPON TO SOLVE THEIR POLITICAL HUMILIATION. I HAVE ONE QUESTION FOR LIBERTARIANS, FOR LEFTISTS, TRUE LEFTISTS. YOU HAVE A PRESIDENT WHOSE PRIMARY GOAL IS NOT SPILLING ANYMORE BLOOD ANYWHERE. WHERE ARE YOU? THIS IS THE MOST PROGRESSIVE FOREIGN POLICY I’VE SEEN IN MY LIFE. YOU GOING TO LITTLE HILLARY CLINTON OR CNN AND ADAM SCHIFF BASICALLY REPLACE HIM WITH A HILLARY POD BECAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE HIM? AFTER WHAT HE’S DOING? THAT’S PRETTY FRICKING CRAZY.>>Jesse: DANA WHAT DO YOU THINK? “THE WASHINGTON POST” SAYS DEMOCRACY DIES IN THE DARKNESS.>>Dana: THE ARGUING FOR TRANSPARENCY IS USUALLY YOUR BEST ARGUMENT WITH THE MEDIA. WE REVERE THE FIRST AMENDMENT. RIGHT? SO THE TRANSPARENCY THING IS GOOD. THE STUNT TODAY OF — THE PRESIDENT SAID I WANT THE REPUBLICANS TO GET TOUGHER. THEY’LL WIN THE NEWS CYCLE ON THAT TODAY. THEY’LL DRIVE THE NEWS. BUT WHEN THE MAJORITY OF THE HOUSE, DEMOCRATS, HAVE THE GAVEL, THEY’RE NOT AFFECTED BY THE TRANSPARENCY. THEY KEEP ROLLING DOWN. UNTIL THEY SEE SOMETHING IN THEIR POLLING OR IN THEIR FOCUS GROUPS OR THE PRESSURE FROM THEIR CONSTITUENTS GETS TO A FEVER PITCH ON TRANSPARENCY, THEY’RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO CHANGE IT. THE OTHER THING IS, I THINK — I FEEL LIKE THE GOAL POSTS FROM BOTH SIDES ARE MOVING SO MUCH THAT EVEN IF THERE WAS — THERE WAS A QUID PRO QUO, I’M SURE IT WOULD BE LIKE OH, OKAY. FINE.>>Greg: WHO CARES.>>Dana: AND –>>Greg: THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE DO, DANA, CORRECT?>>Dana: WHAT?>>Greg: LIKE I WANT YOU TO CHECK OUT YOUR CORRUPTION BEFORE WE GIVE YOU ALL OF THIS MONEY. THAT’S WHAT HIS JOB IS.>>BUT GREG, THE QUID PRO QUO HERE IS SOMETHING FOR THE PRESIDENT, SOMETHING OF VALUE, DIRT ON HIS POLITICAL OPPONENT.>>Greg: THE CORRUPTION — NO, NO, NO. YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT CORRUPTION. 2016 CORRUPTION. LOOK INTO IT.>>NO, JOE BIDEN –>>Jesse: JUAN, THERE’S NO QUID PRO QUO BECAUSE THE UKRAINIANS DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT ANY OF THE MONEY WAS BEING HELD. I WANT TO PLAY SOME SOUND FROM THE REPUBLICANS ON THIS AND YOU CAN REACT.>>THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORTING THAT HE PROVIDED EVIDENCE OF A QUID PRO QUO INVOLVING MILITARY AID IS FALSE. NEITHER HE OR ANY OTHER WITNESS HAS PROVIDED TESTIMONY THAT THE UKRAINIANS WERE AWARE THAT MILITARY AID WAS BEING WITHHELD. YOU CAN’T HAVE A QUARTERBACK WITH NO QOU.>>THE TWO MINUTES, JOHN RADCLIFF DESTROYED THIS WITNESS. THERE’S NO QUID PRO QUO.>>Jesse: DR. SAPPHIRE?>>I FINED IT INTERESTING, WE DIDN’T DO THE TIME LINE. THEY HAVE THE PHONE CONVERSATION. TRUMP AND ZELENSKY IN JULY. THERE’S REPORTS THAT THE WHITE HOUSE IS HOLDING BACK THE FUNDS. THE FUNDS WEREN’T GOING TO BE US YOKED TILL OCTOBER UNTIL ZELENSKY MADE A PUBLIC DECLARATION. WHICH NEVER HAPPENED. THE FUNDS DID GO THERE. I HAVE QUESTIONS WHEN IT COMES TO THE QUID PRO QUO. UNFORTUNATELY THE LACK OF TRANSPARENCY MY QUESTIONS ARE NOT BEING ANSWERED. ADAM SCHIFF IS RIGHTING A TIGHT SHIP WITH THE CLOSED DOOR POLICY THAT HE’S ALLOWING THE LEAKS, ALLOWING THIS NARRATIVE TO BUILD UP LIKE INFLATED VERBIAGE AND IT CONTINUES TO DIVIDE THE COUNTRY. THAT IS THEIR NUMBER 1 GOAL, MASSIVE DIVISION NOR 2020 ELECTION. I’M TIRED OF THIS POSTURING JUST FOR ELECTION PURPOSES.>>Jesse: I THINK, JUAN, AFTER A WHILE, IF YOU’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO THIS IN THE DARK IN SECRET SO THE COUNTRY CANNOT WHY THE PRESIDENT IS BEING IMPEACHED, PEOPLE WILL BE FED UP WITH IT. I THINK THIS IS GOING TO DO LONG-TERM DAMAGE HERE.>>YOU DON’T KNOW WHY THE PRESIDENT IS BEING IMPEACHED?>>Jesse: YOU CAN’T HAVE ANY EVEN SEEN BY REPUBLICANS. THEY CAN’T SEE TRANSCRIPTS. NEAR THREATENING TO WITHHOLD CHECKS FROM PEOPLE TESTIFYING.>>YOU DON’T KNOW WHY THE PRESIDENT IS BEING IMPEACHED?>>Jesse: YOU WANT TO SEE THE FULL EVIDENCE. YOU WANT TESTIMONY –>>IT’S A LEGITIMATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS THAT THEY WOULD HOLD –>>Jesse: YOU THINK IT’S LEGITIMATE TO DO IT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS?>>ABSOLUTELY.>>Jesse: YOU THINK THIS IS LEGITIMATE?>>I JUST TOLD YOU I DO. THE SECOND THING THAT WILL COME OUT AND YOU’LL SAY OH, MY GOSH. WHY ARE THEY PRESENTING IT THIS WAY? THIS IS UNFAIR TO THE PRESIDENT –>>Jesse: WHEN WILL IT COME OUT?>>IN A MONTH OR SO. IT’S THE SENATE THAT SHOULD BE WORRYING YOU. RIGHT NOW THE DAILY CALL OR SOMEBODY DID A POLL OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE SENATE. FORGET THE POLL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THINK THIS IS LEGITIMATE. THERE WERE ONLY SEVEN SENATORS THAT SAID THEY’RE NOT OPEN TO THE INQUIRY, IMPEACHING –>>Jesse: DO I LOOK>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WO>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WORR>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WORRY>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WORR>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WORRIE>>Jesse: DO I LOOK WORRIED? DANA, WHERE IS THIS GOING?>>Dana: SCHIFF WILL KEEP CALLING THE WITNESSES. EACH SIDE THINKS THEY’RE WINNING. THERE ARE REPUBLICANS THAT THINK YOU IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP — IMPEACHMENT DOES NOT MEAN HE WON’T BE PRESIDENT ANYMORE. CLINTON WAS IMPEACHED AND HIS POLLING NUMBERS WENT UP. HIS POPULARITY WENT UP. PROBABLY HAD A CHANCE TO RUN FOR A THIRD TERM, WHO KNOWS WHO WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. I DON’T KNOW. BUT THERE ARE REPUBLICANS THAT BELIEVE THIS IS HELPING HIM. THEN THERE ARE DEMOCRATS THAT THINK THAT THEY HAVE TO DO THIS HE IN ORDER TO FIGHT BACK AGAINST THEIR BASE WHO IS FRUSTRATING BECAUSE THEY SAY HOW ARE YOU HOLDING THE PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE? MEANTIME, THERE’S REPORTING TODAY THAT PELOSI’S TEAM AND THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE ARE STILL WORKING ON THEIR PLANS, WHATEVER YOU THINK ABOUT THE LOWERING OF THE DRUG PRICES, THEIR POLICY PROPOSAL, BUT THEY’RE STILL MOVING FORWARD ON THAT AND THE TRADE DEAL, THE USMCA IS STILL ON TRACK AS WELL. MAYBE IT’S POSSIBLE THAT THEY CAN GET THINGS DONE AND CONTINUE WITH IMPEACHMENT.>>Jesse: ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT WALKING AND CHEWING GAME AT THE SAME TIME?>>Dana: A GREAT CLICHE’.

  1. It was all a plot to distract because it is an INQUIRY, and Republicans were allowed in the room to begin with. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

  2. Is funny when you see all these robots talking and thinking the same , Is like they all are wired together and controlled from one( Evil )

  3. All these representatives want is to Identify the witness. These representatives shall have the same sentence or prison cell as any that would take retribution on a witness. Fuk sticks.

  4. Libel? 🤨 To who juan, he may get sue for libel for what? lying? But he shouldn't worry about contempt? For lying in congress.🤔🤔🤔

    Oh…. Yeah thats the purpose of the closed-door. So schiff can control the narrative i get it juan 👍🏻🤫🤫🤭

  5. Juan is the most interesting person on the Five. He is the only one not repeating FUD and GOP talking points. He's also the only one who actually brings up the Constitution and the powers it gives to the House during impeachment.

    My favorite line was "You don't know why the president is getting impeached?"

  6. We held up public funds to the Northern Triangle until they did something about illegal immigration. We held aid to the Palestinians for various reasons. We are forgetting the actual story…THE CORRUPTION BY THE BIDEN'S AND THE OBAMAS.

  7. This is total crap not allowing President Trump not allowing him his due process. Not allowing The People to see and have access to these secret hearings.

  8. The coming civil war will last exactly one day, then this country will be cured of the disease that is liberalism. That's the future and it's headed your way.

  9. I can't wait to see little Adam go to jail for creating a scam to overthrow our President that WE THE PEOPLE VOTED INTO OFFICE TRUMP 2020

  10. Barry S. paid Iran billions in cash to get his deal done which was done behind closed doors, now the Dems are concerned about the delayed payment to a country where US officials before 2016 created a Ukraine spy agency that worked with the Fb!/Commie in 2015/2016 to help create dirt on Trump. A delayed payment vs money paid to bribe a country.

  11. Guy in the middle has to be louder than everyone else. He thinks talking over people will make people listen…

  12. Adam Shift, Pelosi, and crew should be arrested for treason. Having unconstitutional “Star
    Chamber” meetings, to circumvent the laws of the land trying to protect the
    criminal actions of their fellow democrats from the Obama Hussein administration, are truly real obstruction of justice.

  13. Why do all the headlines say they "stormed" into the hearing. If you watch the first seven seconds of this video, you can clearly see that they are calmly walking into the hearing.
    It would be more truthful to say they strolled into the hearing

  14. After Trump wins again…..he needs to create a news network (satellite) that all the good ones. can go to. Tell me where, when and how…I'm in.

  15. Yes. Storming. That's exactly what that bunch of lumpy middle-aged white clowns did. They stormed. You can't hold the handrail while coming down the stairs and call it storming.

  16. Juan if you know why they are impeaching trump , why did you not tell the people at the table with you ,
    I did not hear him say one reason.

  17. I can't stand when Fox runs those 10-15 quote deep sound bites, with idiots repeating the same thing. After five of them, I get it…move on.

  18. The closed-door nature of the impeachment investigations are within the house rules signed by former House Speaker John Boehner in January 2015 and enacted by a Republican majority congress.

  19. @Jeff Puckett. Dont know exactly but there are 48 Republicans on that committee. So when you think about some of the Republicans the obstructed the inquiry could have just gone in.

  20. Republicans in the secret hearings have the right to leak what they want from the testimony and they haven't leaked anything because the testimony doesn't help their master Trump. Lol sad times for Republicans. Embarrassing

  21. juan what about bidens quid pro quo its on camera for alot more? ur stretching words n taking things out of context to try to punish trump yet biden literally spells out a quid pro quo for more money and corruptly motivated bc of his son. he literally spells it out bragging in the most blatant use of words spelling it out and u shrug it off. trump didnt say that at all yall are trying to hard ur stretching and making implied intents to hurt trump. your bias is so obvious its insane u think people cant see through u bc ur so obvious with it. or u think the american people r too dumb to see it. well were not that dumb and yall just keep killing yall credibility and show yall political mot i vations.

  22. fire juan. hes racist and prejudiced. he refuses to accept evidence spelled out in front of him bc he just refuses to give trump any credit or neutral thought process. hes just totally democratic nobmatter how dumb and stupid they look

  23. Juan Williams, you will have to answer your Maker when you come before Him. Your political opinions won’t matter. Your friends on the left won’t matter. Your victimhood blah-blah won’t matter. You will be naked facing the most powerful, blameless, truthful being in the universe. And you will be judged when your life rolls out in front of Him, with all your lies, your idolatry, your false testimony, the smallest and the biggest of your flaws, your hatred, your pretense… Juan Williams, that’s gonna suck being you. Of course you can take solace in the knowledge that it’s gonna suck for me too. And it will. But when you come before Him, that won’t matter at all either. So stop and repent, bro, repent.

  24. Guys guys guys. If we're going to get to the bottom of these accusations of witch-craft, we'll have to accept that all the witnesses will make their accusations in the confessional booth.

  25. "It wouldn't be a legitimate process." "You don't want to libel people. What if somebody said something that's not true?"
    …like the FBI did to General Flynn?

  26. why does this talk just go on and on, arrest and jail these people like Hillary, Schiff, Pelosi,Brennan among others, Mueller jailed people and we cant get the people who really did all this crap in Jail. Do something stop talking and do something.

  27. YOU RUINED THE FIVE FOR ME SO I DONT WATCH BECAUSE YOUR AN IDIOT NO MATTER WHAT LOGIC AND FACTS SAY !!! YOU NEED TO BE FIRED !!!!!!!!!!

  28. The whisleblower is Fake …..This Is just an act to Impeach the President because they know they can not bet him in 2020 …… Everyone of the head Democrats needs to be Impeached and what they are doing is UN Constitution ….. WAKE UP AMERICA

  29. Why did you guys picked on that Juan and it happened he is black. Get some normal thinking black people to argue with him He is a nut. Why not to ask to join you Black Conservative Patriot who can have a spat with Juan?????????

  30. TRUMP HAVE A 57% TO POPULARITY . THE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS A GOOD PRESIDENT 💪🏽🇺🇸❤️💪🏽🇺🇸❤️💪🏽🇺🇸❤️💪🏽🇺🇸❤️💪🏽🇺🇸❤️💪🏽😀👍

  31. KaWann , show us the beef.
    Exactly what is it you see as President Trump’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, as I would hope you would know,
    these are necessary elements in order to Impeach a President ?

  32. Schiff was exposed pressuring a witness to change his testimony, and now nobody is supposed to have a record of his proceedings, except Democrats (and whatever they leak to the press).

  33. You guys have 4+1 here and that 1 is as confused as the Dems. Whatever his name is.

    As for Hillary Clinton, she's been built to crash badly and worse than 2016.

    TRUMP 2020.

  34. The democrats are wasting the people's money and time just because they know they can't beat Trump. It's hard to imagine someone as stupid as Juan. He's so stupid that he's just plain irritating.

  35. You can't just shutout 1/2 of your committee because you are butt hurt! Shifty, will the real shift please stand up. Juan the biggest moron, this isn't unusual for Juan the idiot to greatly miss the true meaning of everything. Fox, please fire this moron I am tired of hearing him give his twisted logic.
