TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Yeah and I'm not naming him because I can't get anyone to confirm that it's really him. Sounds like it is him. But I don't want to say it unless I can get confirmation. But, I mean, at some point -- this is undermining people's confidence in the government.

REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-CA): Exactly, but it goes back to what we were just talking about. Right now there truly is no whistleblower, OK? There's only a whistleblower in paper, OK? There is no evidence right now, not until both parties -- we have a system in this country. I've been doing this for a while now. I've been dealing with whistleblowers. You have to allow the whistleblowers, whoever that may be, to come to both parties.

CARLSON: Exactly

NUNES: And if you are not doing that, there is something wrong --

CARLSON: Well, exactly. His life's in danger? Oh spare me. Live my life for a week.
