BRIAN KILMEADE (HOST): Eric, have you been watching some of what's going on today?

ERIC TRUMP: A little bit, it's dry, boring and as invested as I am in this whole thing, it certainly doesn't keep your attention very well. And I've been trying to watch it for the last couple of days and it's, I don't know, it's pretty painful. If this is a Democratic Hail Mary, they're not going to be successful with this --

KILMEADE: The fact that Sondland comes out, says there was a quid pro quo for investigation, does that change things.

TRUMP: It's an opinion, Brian. I mean, it's an opinion and a lot of people have had opinions.


KILMEADE: How do you deal with this situation?

TRUMP: Listen, I mean, look at the testimony yesterday. Was there any quid pro quo? No there wasn't. Was there any bribery? No there wasn't. Did the President ever say he was going to withhold aid? No he didn't. Go through all those questions.

So, again, this is the testimony of quite frankly, career politicians, Brian, who, hey, some of them might be fantastic people and some of them clearly have worked against my father since day one, some of them relish the fact that my father won an election, you know four years ago, three years ago at this point.

You know, I don't know, I'm kind of tired of the hearsay. I'm a guy who likes to actually look at a document and see what it says.
