STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): In this country, you know, we've heard a lot over the last couple of years about how the Democrats would like to impeach the president of the United States.


DOOCY: And now given the fact that we've got this Ukraine thing and then the whistleblower thing -- and by the way, did you hear that the whistleblower complaint was filed by somebody who actually had no direct knowledge of it? It's almost as if they'd heard a rumor, filed it, and that apparently is why it does not fall into the standards for the intel whistleblower law, and that's why it's not going to Congress.
