JOE SCARBOROUGH (CO-HOST): How serious do you take the Russian investigation right now? 

MIKE BRZEZINSKI (CO-HOST): You need a presidency that works.

SCARBOROUGH: How important is it for you?

HUGH HEWITT: I think it's very important that the Senate Intelligence Committee do it. I do not want a special prosecutor, which will set it back --

NICOLLE WALLACE: Well you're going to get one. I mean that's what happens next.

HEWITT: No we're not. No, [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein is not going to put in a special prosecutor. 


EDDIE GLAUDE: How about the question he answered during his confirmation? "Would you -- will you be willing to appoint a special prosecutor?

HEWITT: He said he would be willing to if he thought it was necessary, but he believes it himself. [Sen] Patrick Leahy [(D-VT)] asked [James] Comey last week this very question. “Should he appoint it?” And Comey said, “I trust his judgment, I trust Rod Rosenstein's judgment” under oath as --

BRZEZINSKI: Ask [White House Deputy Press Secretary] Sarah Huckabee Sanders that because that it is what she will say on a repeat because there's nothing else to say and you're doing it on a loop too, with all due respect. It is unbelievable. I'm sorry.

BRZEZINSKI: No, it's called this presidency is failing day by day by day through lies. Sorry. 


SCARBOROUGH: So you going to be around today on TV?


SCARBOROUGH: Oh great. So people can be watching you all day on MSNBC, they love you here.

BRZEZINSKI: Good luck.

SCARBOROUGH: You and me, we should really start our own little podcast.

BRZEZINSKI: I love you. I think you're flat wrong and possibly even doing Trump's bidding, but that's all. That's just my opinion.

HEWITT: Talk to anyone at the White House.
