JESSICA TARLOV (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): So there was a quid pro quo. We now know that there were two things on the table.


MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): It says right here, there’s no quid pro quo.

TARLOV: We learned that U.S. officials were working together with Rudy Giuliani to draft a statement that the Ukrainian government was going to put out, saying that they would investigate Joe Biden. It wasn't good enough to say we’ll investigate corruption, which the president pretends that's what he's interested in. It had to name Burisma specifically. Sondland took five hours to respond to that text. He then comes back after Bill Taylor says very -- twice he says: "We don't exchange assistance for --”

FRANCIS: Here, I’ve got it right here. “I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign.” One reason why you would take five hours to respond to that, doesn't that feel like a setup? I mean, doesn’t that feel like one of those situations --


FRANCIS: Well, but one of those situations where you say, "Gosh, do you feel bad about the fact that you murdered that person last night," in a text so you respond to it? I mean it just -- it sounds -- I don't know. It's a little bit difficult to believe. 

The other point that I would say is that, so you would have to prove that he has no interest in ferreting out corruption in these spots in order for it to be strictly that this is about a political campaign. And he does have a responsibility to not send my tax dollars to a corrupt nation. And you have to look into things that smell of corruption.
