> Sean: All right, Rick, so we all believe that Russia is a hostile regime but a far bigger threat, all my intelligence sources tell me, by a long shot, is China. And Mike Pompeo’s comments were pretty alarming as well. And I look at this and then I look at the comments he [Eric Swalwell] was making publicly about Russia, et cetera. I am like what a hypocrite.
Ric Grenell: Look, I think it’s even worse than just hypocrisy. We are accustomed to hypocrisy in Washington, D.C. But you said it right, Sean, that look, Russia is a problem but China is a crisis and we have known that it has been a crisis for a very long time. I think there needs to be a gang of intelligent group investigations, certainly an acting chairman, Marco Rubio should immediately call the intelligence committee together. They should get a confidential classified briefing on what Eric Swalwell new and how much did he give away. Because the reality is he spent years downplaying the China threat and overhyping the Russian threat. This is playing exactly into what the Chinese want people to do. They want to be under the radar. Eric Swalwell did exactly what the Chinese wanted. We need to figure out are there others. And I can tell you without giving away too much intelligence this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the leverage that China is putting on our politicians. There are many, many more.
>> Sean: Wouldn’t the Bidens be up there in that category?
>> There’s a variety of mayors, governors, senior people. Look, the other thing that we’ve got to —
>> Sean: Well, well, well
>> There is a whole bunch and more should be coming out. They have all received defensive briefings and there’s a lot more to it.
>> Sean: Did I see Matt Gaetz blushing there? That would be impossible.
>> It’s very important to know what Pelosi knew. Everyone in Washington knows that Eric is her fair-haired boy.
>> He said the leadership knew. He said leadership knew about this.
>> Sean: Wow. Great work, both of you. Appreciate it.
