BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): President Trump accuses top Democrats of treason over their handling of the whistleblower investigation.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): That includes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is expecting a letter about the president's terms for cooperating with the impeachment inquiry to be delivered to the House.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Kevin Corke joins us live from the White House as the second whistleblower comes forward. Good morning, Kevin.

KEVIN CORKE: Good morning guys. You're right about that. Let me take you right to Twitter, because I think it's frankly a bit of Twitter trolling by the president. If you sort of read into the tone of the tweets -- yes, he's talking about treason and talking about impeachment and things like that. But I think he's sort of poking fun just a bit here. At least that's my read of it.
