RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
>> Tucker: It’s absolutely infuriating. Talk about subverting democracy. That is completely over-the-top. Do you think that the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to look into this Russia question, whatever that question is, will stop the acceleration we are seen in the last week? Talk of impeachment, removing from from office? How would it not?
>> It’s not going to slow them down. Now, they will change their talking points for the Democrats, by the way, I’d love newfound commitment to openness, transparency, and accountability. Where did that come from? All of a sudden, January 20th, they are all for it. They will just change their talking points and say this administration is in chaos, by the way, it’s under investigation itself. It had to a special counsel. You’ll hear them. You can already hear them in advance. It’s an insatiable desire for you today have no idea, they have no policies. It’s the scorched-earth mentality and approach, to say, let’s burn it to the ground, and that is their approach.
>> Tucker: Do you think, since you work there and you are with them, and the gym or at lunch or whatever, do you think the democratic members we see on television, alleging a conspiracy involving trump and Putin, believe that there was actual collusion between the two?
>> If they do, where’s the evidence? I am happy to pursue it but I don’t have anybody actually presenting me any evidence. Now that we are this money a month into it, come up with something. You come with the last week or so, Maxine waters, saying that somehow I was suspect, that I have ties — are you kidding me? I live in Utah for goodness sakes.
>> Tucker: You can’t even see Russia from your house.
>> No accountability.
[Laughs]
I can see it right over the great Salt Lake. It’s right over there.
>> Tucker: I know there is no evidence. I don’t think we know that the Russia hacked John Podesta’s emails. But I wonder if the people alleging this conspiracy have bought into it themselves. I know we are getting to motive. I just can’t resist asking, do you think that some of them are sincere?
>> I think some of them probably want to believe it. Even absent evidence. I think they are sincerity is probably there. But a lot of them, I just don’t — if you try to go even an inch deep into what sort of evidence that they have, they got nothing. Nothing.
>> Tucker: He would never know that. From the press conferences they hold.
[Laughs]
Congressman Chaffetz, thank you for joining us tonight.
>> Thanks, tucker.
