Syndicated radio host Mark Levin told "FOX & Friends" Friday morning that Democrats are declaring President Trump guilty with "no due process, no court case, and no indictment" after he was "set up" by "Democrat Clintonoid George Stephanopoulos" into saying he would accept information from foreign sources about political opponents.
"The President of the United States has never taken information from foreign governments. He has never used it as opposition research. So for the past two days, we are dealing with a pseudo-event. It's not news. It never happened," Levin said. "Just because Democrat Clintonoid George Stephanopoulos sets up the president with a question like that, now we discuss it all week."
"That's what they do in fascistic regimes," he said. "Where the Speaker of the House stands up and accuses people of crimes. If we didn't have the Constitution, and the Democrats running these committees were in charge, it would be like the French committees during the French Revolution where they'd be declaring people guilty with a guillotine right next to them and lopping their heads off."
BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX NEWS: So Nancy Pelosi goes off with the president goes off on the president yesterday. Do you agree with what the president said to George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office?
MARK LEVIN: Hold on a second. Let's talk about Nancy Pelosi for once in our lives here, that she has never confronted. Nancy Pelosi just said the president of the United States is guilty of a criminal cover-up.
That's what they do in fascistic regimes, where the Speaker of the House stands up and accuses people of crimes. If we didn't have the Constitution, and the Democrats running these committees were in charge, it would be like the French committees during the French Revolution where they'd be declaring people guilty with a guillotine right next to them and lopping their heads off.
There is a time when Congress is out of control and this is one of them. We have seen this throughout our history. These subpoenas and they are intended to destroy people. They are unconstitutional. Everybody who receives these unconstitutional subpoenas should be fighting them. They are victims.
So, I don't mind talking about what the president said. We endlessly talk about what the president said. When he sneezes, when he blows his nose, when he brushes his hair, when he gets up in the morning. It's "Trump, Trump, Trump, isn't he a dictator? Isn't he horrible? Can you believe what he said?"
Let's put the brakes on it. Nancy Pelosi is fascistic. She just declared the president of the United States a criminal based on, what? No due process, no court case, no indictment. She stands up there and she announced the President of the United States a criminal. Nadler announces the President of the United States is a criminal. These are the worst kinds of demagogues who are representing the mob, their base. They have taken over the House of Representatives for their own political purposes.
AINSLEY EARHARDT, FOX NEWS: Mark, how quickly they forget in October of 2017, this was the headline of "The Washington Post," "Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier." And then Brian Fallon said to the "The Washington Post" that same month, he was the ex-Clinton staffer, he said: "The first I learned of Christopher Steele or saw any dossier was after the election. But, if I had gotten handed it last fall, I would have had no problem passing it along and urging reporters to look into it. Opposition research happens on every campaign and here you had probably the most shadowy guy ever running for president and the FBI certainly has seen fit to look into it. I probably would have volunteered to go to Europe myself to try and verify if it would have helped get more of this out there before the election." Your thoughts?
MARK LEVIN: These people are liars and hypocrites. He would have done that dirty work in two seconds. The fact of the matter is Hillary Clinton and the DNC did it. Tell me why doesn't George Stephanopoulos sit down with Nancy Pelosi and say Hillary Clinton and her campaign and the DNC laundered money in order to buy false information from the Russians to use against the President of the United States, which was used by the Obama administration at the top levels of the FBI and the intelligence committees and our corrupt FISA court system, tell me Nancy Pelosi, do you agree with that?
I mean, that's a fact. It's not a hypothetical. The President of the United States has never taken information from foreign governments. He has never used it as opposition research. So for the past two days, we are dealing with a pseudo-event. It's not news. It never happened. Just because Democrat Clintonoid George Stephanopoulos sets up the president with a question like that, now we will discuss it all week.
And Nancy Pelosi, true to form. "Maybe this should be one of the issues that we look in terms of our investigation." The House and the Senate have a responsibility. It's legislative. These endless oversight hearings which are intended to destroy a president, and win an election, they are unconstitutional and they are fascistic conduct and their fascistic statements need to be called on the carpeting. This is our country and our constitution, and when she says she is there to represent the people and here to defend the constitution, no she is not. Not in the least.
BRIAN KILMEADE: Somebody who might agree with you on freedom of the press and the premise behind it might be Ronan Farrow. He was quoted after picking up an award saying some people in the media are honest and others, at the same time, see people who are lied to protect power. When you go into your book and talk about how the press seems to have picked a side, is that what have you discovered?
MARK LEVIN: Well, I have discovered that and a lot more, which is this: the media in this country are destroying freedom of the press.
We don't even need studies to tell us. We have our own eyes, we have our own ears, day in and day out. Are they reporting the news? Are they giving information to the American people that are helpful to their lives so they can make decisions about their families, their communities, about their government? No. It's an endless attack. And it's propaganda, and it's day-in and day-out. Russia collusion for two and a half years. Did anybody get fired as a result of that? No. Any of these executives like Zucker pushing this? He got a promotion from AT&T. They are doing an enormous disservice to this country. The purpose of a free press is to serve the American people. Like this Acosta. He goes in the middle of a press conference. He tries to that monopolize it and disrupt it, and now he is running around like is he a savior of the First Amendment. Is he a self-promoter. That's what he is. These are pseudo-events surrounded by propaganda. The worst lightweights that you see in the media today, you excepted of course. I'm talking about these newsrooms. There is no diversity in most of these newsrooms, none.
