it talking about the investigation of the investigators, there could be a lot here we just don't know yet. >> i have no problem investigating the investigators i've said that a lot. but i have a problem with, one of the reasons i'm on board with saying he he should recuse himself, the attorney general is one, he said basically the fbi responded. it's not like he's being nonbiased, and this is why there are many of my side of the aisle, democrats that feel he is not the people's attorney but rather the president's attorney. in addition to the outcome of the timing of this, why does it happen to be no and some say it's because they wanted to be diversion and diversionary tactic from the inquiry going on. of >> and you could flip it around, he could be a diversiony tactic from the investigation. >> i think the effort is to discredit bill barr by before he comes up with the report. the idea he should recuse himself is nonsense, the attorney he has on the case is an excellent reputation. look, the one thing i think we
3:51 pm
should all be frustrated with is how all these things taken from the special counsel for almost two years, waiting for the inspector general. if i think when we see the inspector general's report, we will know why the u.s. attorneys investigation move to a criminal stage. it's frustrating to have the entire country weighed on these reports. >> bret: some frankly don't know that that is going on and that's been recovered in other places. nancy pelosi's effort to know move forward with the votes? is surprised by that? 's considering she said it was unnecessary now you need to do it, and she's doing it now. >> we did not have this all going on in public, they moved in the needle in favor of impeaching the president and removing the president. i think she's doing this right to go reasons, one, she's a popular opinion knowing her reasons, and two, she has a really difficult time right in front of her. remember, most of the exception of two of the democratic
3:52 pm
candidates will have to be in a senate trial. if they are sitting senators and that's going to be a problem when you look at right now, and everyone says i'm i side of the aisle, they're going to be doing this before i think skipping and give the senate a couple weeks to get ready for the trial. all of a sudden, during february, i could prove difficult and it could be helpful to people for a judge and joe biden. >> bret: democrats are saying, listen, this is just an effort to call republicans bluff that no longer can you talk about process and we will not have to talk about substance. >> is a seldom fundamental amen value, and will be be about fairness. you had a secret impeachment process, secret witnesses secret transcripts all started by a secret whistle-blower. that's not wholly conduct things to be fair to anybody in this country. this is a little bit of

retroactive makeup and they recognized they do have a problem. it's not a process problem. it's a fundamental american process. >> bret: if she gets the vote and moves forward and to be able you have to provide the documents. >> i don't like it does for practical reasons, and theory, it coded. look, i think she has done this because senator graham resolution condemned the house for its behavior to kind of highlight and going up in a few minutes. it says the more unfair than impeachment is, the process, the better it is for trump because it makes it much harder in the senate. it gives the case for the impeachment and not to take the american people. i think it's a little bit late that she is recognizing that this does not help her. and she wanted to be enforced, they would be go so my going to the courts and they're not going

to the courts. the contemporary resolution and they are not going to the courts and they want the resolution quickly and they're not going to the courts. >> bret: the room follow-up from the killing of the isis leader, the overall view. this weekend. >> first of all, this is a foreign policy win for trump without question. this is access for the world. i was unhappy with some of the graphics and description and the possibility of a video coming out. we have three children killed along with that and i'm happy, one-sided, seems to think that this guy is dead and therefore isis is dead along with him. it is not the case. >> attribute to our military, first and foremost, our military and get the job done anywhere in the world and that's what i concentrate on here. >> bret: all rights, panel, welcome back a man and his priorities go viral. want to see this as if you hav.
