BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Now this whistleblower wants to testify but in writing, behind closed doors.

JEANINE PIRRO (FOX NEWS HOST): In writing, behind closed doors. And they said worst case scenario, they want to -- if they have to listen to him, they want to change his voice. I mean, give me a break. Who is this guy? Number one, he's a CIA person, OK? What we're experiencing right now is the CIA, an intelligence agency, attempting a coup against the United States president. And that's what is going on here. This is intelligence agencies trying to take out a president. And you know, we have -- the bottom line is, who is he afraid of? They always try to make themselves victims. Everybody's a victim. You know, I was a prosecutor for 150 years. Every criminal I ever tried was a victim. You're not a victim. You need to come out. You know, Barack Obama, I was just reading this morning, he fired whistleblowers. Now in this administration, we're not even entitled to know who they are.


PIRRO: So now what we've got, is we got the president, who is now the subject of a coup. He's entitled to due process. He's entitled to have his attorney in that room. He's entitled to cross-examination. He's entitled to present witnesses. So what the left is doing, is they've got this in the intelligence committee. Why? Because it's closed. We're not entitled to hear anything of what they're saying in that committee. And so now what we hear are little leaks from little Adam Schiff, who comes out and says, “Oh this is this a problem, that's a problem." And so of course the administration should say, hey look, you want a real impeachment? You vote it.
