IT. HERE’S “THE FIVE.”>>♪ ♪>>[LAUGHING].>>HELLO. I AM DANA PERINO WITH EMILY. JESSE WATTERS AND GREG GUTFELD. IT’S 5 O’CLOCK IN NEW YORK CITY. IT’S FRIDAY AND THIS IS “THE FIVE.”>>♪ ♪>>DEMOCRATS SHOWING NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN WITH INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THE HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE ISSUED SUBPOENAS TO THE TREASURY SECRETARY OF STATE AND IRS COMMISSION FOR OVERFAILING TO PRODUCE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS. THEY ARE THREATENING TO HOLD TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS ALSO IN CONTEMPT.>>YES, I AGREE WITH CHAIRMAN NADLER. THE ADMINISTRATION HAS DECIDED THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO HONOR THEIR OATH OF OFFICE. I AM PROUD OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND THE WORK THEY HAVE DONE. WE WILL SEE. THERE MIGHT BE OTHER CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS ISSUES THAT WE WANT TO DEAL WITH AT THE SAME TIME.>>SHE IS NOT RULING OUT GOING AFTER TRUMP OFFICIALS WITH FINES AND JAIL TIME IF THEY IGNORE SUBPOENAS.>>THEY ARE VIOLATING THE STATUTE. WE CAN ENFORCE IT IN COURT BUT THAT TAKES TIME. USED TO BE WE IMPRISON PEOPLE AND WE COULD FIND THEM $25,000 A DAY UNTIL THEY COMPLY. THAT MIGHT BE PAY SWIFTER REMEDY IF WE NEED TO EMBARK ON IT.>>ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR DOESN’T SEEM WORRIED ABOUT ANY OF IT.>>THIS MUST BE A RECORD OF ATTORNEY GENERAL BEING PROPOSED FOR CONTEMPT WITHIN 100 DAYS OF TAKING OFFICE.>>LEFT WINGDEMOCRATS WANT NANCY PELOSI TO PURSUE IMPEACHMENT.>>IT’S IMPORTANT THAT 10 MILLION PEOPLE SAY HOLD THIS PRESIDENT ACCOUNTABLE. RIGHT NOW DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION.>>AND JERRY NADLER AND OTHERS INTRODUCED THE BILL CALLED NO PRESIDENT IS ABOVE THE LAW ACT. GREG, CONTEMPT, THAT’S THE WORD OF THE WEEK.>>CONTEMPT. I KEEP TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS THE NEXT SUBWAY STOP ON THIS CRAZY TRAIN? YOU THINK ABOUT IT. IT’S TIME FOR RESPONSIBLE DEMOCRATS TO STAND UP AND SAY, STOP. LET’S LOOK AT THIS CRAZY TRAIN. THE FIRST STOP WAS TRUMP WAS UNSTABLE. THE SECOND STOP HE WAS ENSANE. THE THIRD STOP THE RUSSIA. NOW WE HAVE CONTEMPT. ARREST EVERYBODY. WHAT IS THE NEXT STOP? RIGHT.>>IMPEACHMENT?>>BUT THEY WON’T GET IT. ARE THEY TAKING ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CONFLICT. THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS. WHAT THEY DOING IS CREATING A CRISIS THAT COULD LEAD — IF YOU ARE TRYING TO TELL AMERICA THIS IS AN INSANE UNSTABLE MAN IN THE OVAL OFFICE WHAT IS THE MESSAGE YOU ARE TELLING AMERICA? THAT SOMEBODY NEEDS TO GO IN AND TAKE HIM OUT. I’M SORRY, IT’S THAT CRAZY. I HATE POLITICS. I HATE THE MEDIA. I DON’T KNOW HOW I GOT THIS JOB.>>WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?>>EXACTLY. I DON’T KNOW.>>BECAUSE THEY ARE PAYING YOU.>>THIS IS A CIRCUS. BORN FROM POLITICS AIDED AND ABETTED BY THE MEDIA THAT IS INVESTED IN THE SAME PORTFOLIO WHICH IS CONFRACT. — CONFLICT THIS IS ALL ABOUT MAKING MONEY.>>I THINK THE FOUNDING FATHERS THOUGHT THE INSTITUTIONS WOULD FIGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER AND NOT THE PARTIES.>>THE DEMOCRATS ARE FREE-WHEELING SHERIFFS. THE NEXT STOP AFTER CONTEMPT IS THROW YOUR POLITICAL OPPONENTS IN PRISON. THAT’S WHERE WE ARE GOING. WE REMEMBER THE LOCK HER UP CHAMPS. — CHANTS. NO ONE THOUGHT HILLARY WAS GOING TO PRISON. SCHIFF REALLY WANTS TO LOCK PEOPLE UP. PELOSI TALKS ABOUT LOCKING PEOPLE UP. THEY TALK ABOUT HOLDING BARR IN CONTEMPT AND DRAGGING HIM TO JAIL. WE ALREADY LOCKED UP SO MANY PEOPLE ALREADY ON THIS HOAX. MANAFORT, PAPADOPOULOS, GATES LOCKED UP. GENERAL FLYNN, A DECORATED HERO IS WAITING TO SERVE HIS SENTENCE. PEOPLE SALIVATING OVER THE POSSIBILITY THAT DONALD TRUMP JR. MIGHT GET LOCKED UP AND JAMES COMEY ON CNN SAID MAYBE WHEN THE PRESIDENT FINISHES SERVING HIS TERM WE COULD CHARGE HIM AND LOCK HIM UP! IT LOOKS LIKE THE DEMOCRATS KNOW BARR MIGHT THROW HIM IN JAIL SO THEY WILL TRY TO THROW HIM IN JAIL FIRST. THEY ARE DRUNK ON POWER AND DON’T TRUST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO PICK THEIR OWN LEADERS. THEY ARE SHORT CIRCUTTING THE ELECTION. THEY CAN’T WAIT. THEY CARE MORE ABOUT TWITTER THAN ABOUT THE REAL WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>JUAN, THERE ARE A LOT OF DEMOCRATS WHO SAID WE WANT TO OLD THE PRESIDENT TO ACCOUNT AND IF THIS LEADS TO IMPEACHMENT, CAN PELOSI HOLD THAT BACK?>>SHE HAS BEEN HOLDING IT BACK. SHE MENTIONED THE 10 MILLION SIGNATURES CALLING FOR IMPEACHMENT. BUT IT’S NOT STRONG AMONG INDEPENDENTS OR REPUBLICANS. THE CONGRESS HAS A RIGHT TO EXERCISE THE OVERSIGHT OF THE EXECUTIVE. WE SAW THAT WITH BENGHAZI AND FAST AND FURIOUS. THERE WAS NOT A BLANKET REFUSAL TO COOPERATE WHICH IS WHAT WE WERE SEEING FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. BENGHAZI, WAIT A SECOND, WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS WITH THE CONGRESS VERSUS THE WHITE HOUSE WHICH IS THE FORM OF OUR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT. THIS IS BIGGER THAN BENGHAZI. THIS IS THE UNDER-PINNINGS OF OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT.>>NO ONE DIED.>>WE DON’T HAVE A DEMOCRACY IF WE HAVE AN AUTO-CRAT.>>THAT’S AN EXAGGERATION. WE HAVEN’T SEEN DEAD BODYS.>>OBAMA TWICED ELECTED BY VOTERS. REPUBLICANS BLOCKED HIM FROM THE SUPREME COURT.>>THIS IS NOT A SUPREME COURT NOMINATION. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET HIS SON IN PRISON.>>[OVERLAPPING TALKING].>>SCHIFF IS TALKING ABOUT SENDING PEOPLE TO PRISON.>>NO, HE SAID HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT CONSTRUCT OF THE TRUMP TOWER.>>ENOUGH! JUAN. THERE IS NO COLLUSION.>>YOU KNOW WHO BENEFITS, EMILY. LAWYERS.>>YOU, EMILY.>>WE ARE ALL KEPT BUSY. I AGREE THE FUNCTION IS OVERSIGHT. THIS IS SO BEYOND OVERSIGHT. THIS IS A RABID HUNTING PARTY. ALL OF THE RESOURCES ARE DEPLETED AND USED SOLELY FOR THIS ONE FOCUS. THEY ARE JUST FOCUSSING ON ONE DEFEND AND EVERYBODY ELSE IS IGNORED. A WOMAN SAID PEOPLE ARE ASKING US TO DO SOMETHING. DO YOUR JOB. SO THESE THREE WHO INTRODUCED THIS BILL TO PAUSE THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS TO INDICT A SITTING PRESIDENT. NADLER HAS BEEN ON THE HILL SINCE THE DAWN OF MAN. WITH 2 OF HIS 3 BILLS NAMING A BUILDING AND A POST OFFICE. AND DEUTSCH 3 BILLS IN THE LAST 10 YEARS. NADLER MAKES THE HIGHEST SALARY ON THE HILL. IT’S SUCH AN AFFRONT TO US AS CITIZENS. THEY ARE CHASING THEIR TAILS AND CHASING THIS ONE PERSON. EVERYTHING HAS TO DO WITH BETH PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS FAMILY. ALL I WANT THEM TO DO IS THEIR JOB AND FOCUS ON THE 10.6-MILLION PEOPLE WHO GO TO JAIL EVERY YEAR. HOW ABOUT THOSE DEFENDANTS?>>IF THERE IS NOTHING THERE, WHY DOESN’T THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ASSOCIATES SAY LET’S COOPERATE.
