4:05 PM ET Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute President and author of Secret Empires and Gregg Jarrett, Fox News Legal Analyst and Author of Witch Hunt, discuss the President’s right to inquire about the abrupt end to an investigation involving American citizens in a foreign country. And Ukraine has every right to pursue that investigation again, now that it is clear the initial questioning was halted by a former VP of the United States.
After spending three years investigating the Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China, Peter Schweizer said that the “Ukranian officials are right” to look into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son and his role on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

“There’s no conspiracy theory here,” Schweizer, the author of “Secret Empires,” told “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “It’s the oldest game in politics, which is: Follow the money and self-enrichment. Joe Biden just wants these issues to go away.”

The comments came after former Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said that authorities must investigate Hunter Biden to establish whether or not his role on the board of a Ukrainian gas company complied with the nation’s laws.
Azarov, who served under Ukraine’s former pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych, did not specify which laws he was referring to. President Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani have called on current Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Biden family dealings with Ukrainian firm Burisma Holdings.

4:30 PM ET – House Republican Whip Congressman Steve Scalise joins to discuss how he and his republican colleagues intend to push back against the impeachment madness.

U.S. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise joined NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning to defend President Donald Trump from the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

“The Framers did not put the power of impeachment in the Constitution so that you could stop somebody from getting elected who was duly elected in 2016,” Scalise, R-Jefferson, told host Chuck Todd in an at-times contentious interview. “It’s a high crime and misdemeanor standard, and they should take that with the respect that it deserves in the House.”

Scalise, the No. 2 Republican in the House, has been a key ally of Trump since the president took office in 2017 and has emerged as a significant surrogate defending Trump from Democrats’ investigations into alleged misconduct.

5:05 PM ET – Jonathan Gilliam, Former FBI Agent, Federal Air Marshall, and author of Sheep No More and Danielle McLaughlin, an Attorney & Constitutional Expert who co-wrote The Federalist Society: How Conservatives took the Law Back from Liberals talk about Shifty Schiff’s inability to tell the truth – and that problem is now stretching to his congressional staffers:

In a statement to Fox News, Democratic chairman Adam Schiff’s spokesman confirmed, quote, “The whistleblower contacted the committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the intelligence community.”

Schiff’s office deflected Fox’s questions on timing, whether the whistleblower contact occurred days or weeks before the complaint was declassified. Adding, quote, “At no point did the committee review or receive the complaint in advance. Chairman Schiff does not know the identity of the whistleblower and has not met with or spoken with the whistleblower or their counsel.”

Remember this from Monday, our friend Sean Davis at the Federalist was the first to point out the following:
On Monday, the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) admitted that it did alter its forms and policies governing whistleblower complaints, and that it did so in response to the anti-Trump complaint filed on Aug. 12, 2019. The Federalist first reported the sudden changes last Friday. While many in the media falsely claimed the ICIG’s stunning admission debunked The Federalist’s report, the admission from the ICIG completely affirmed the reporting on the secretive change to whistleblower rules following the filing of an anti-Trump complaint in August.

From the ICIG:
In the process of reviewing and clarifying those forms, and in response to recent press inquiries regarding the instant whistleblower complaint, the ICIG understood that certain language in those forms and, more specifically, the informational materials accompanying the forms, could be read — incorrectly — as suggesting that whistleblowers must possess first-hand information in order to file an urgent concern complaint with the congressional intelligence committees.

The ICIG’s claim that it would have been incorrect to perceive a requirement for firsthand information is bizarre considering the previous version of the form clearly stated in unambiguous language that firsthand evidence was required in order for “urgent concern” whistleblower complaints to be deemed credible. It said, in bold, underlined, all-caps text, “FIRST-HAND INFORMATION REQUIRED”
