HUGH HEWITT (HOST): Finally, and hold this, these are my 10 basic points about impeachment. I may begin every show between now and the vote to impeach the president, which is going to happen, and then he’s going to be acquitted by the Senate. Understand, this is a coup attempt. But number 10, that [inspector general] report from the Department of Justice about FISA and FBI abuse is coming. The rogue FBI attempted a coup against Donald Trump and now this is another coup. Remember the insurance policy? This is their umbrella insurance policy. Impeachment. And everybody gets it, everybody knows it, everybody understands. From the beginning, this is not about the phone call, it’s not about [Ukranian President Volodymyr] Zelensky. It’s part of an attempt to take out Donald Trump. And it’s illegitimate. It’s completely illegitimate.
