STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): As you know, over the weekend there was a firestorm about what exactly did the president say when he called up the newly-elected president of Ukraine back in July. Well yesterday, the president made it very clear, they did talk a little bit about Joe Biden and his son. And now the president is trying to get the news out that he broke no rules.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): The president tweeted this out. He said: "Breaking news: The Ukrainian government just said they weren't pressured at all during the 'nice' call. Sleepy Joe Biden, on the other hand, forced a tough prosecutor out from investigating his son's company by threat of not giving big dollars to Ukraine. That's the real story."

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And by the way, here's exactly what Zelensky, he's the president -- Zelensky, he's the president of Ukraine, said. He said: "I know the what the conversation was about. And I think there was no pressure. This conversation was long, it was friendly. It was touched on many questions, sometimes requiring serious answers." The other story was, he called up to say congratulations on the stunning win, you're a comedian. And now you're running a country. And if you guys want some aid, we're just curious, the question is -- did the -- president said, if you want aid, then investigate Joe Biden's son?

DOOCY: Right.

KILMEADE: He -- That's what some people are saying the whistleblower will say.
