Rep. John Delaney (D-MD)
Stephanopoulos: omg there was a massive
earthquake in Nepal killing American
mountain climbers and assorted others
Marquardt: there was just another
aftershock so we had to go back to India
Stephanopoulos: oh wow
Marquardt: two Americans were killed on
Mount Everest including a Google executive
Stephanopoulos: that's terrible
Marquardt: indeed George
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: oh wow two
hostages were killed in drone strikes
Ross: the White House may let hostages'
families pay ransom if they want to
Ross: six hostages has been killed
Stephanopoulos: that's a lot
Ross: and one family paid the ransom
and the hostage was killed anyway
Stephanopoulos: you can't
trust those darn terrorists
Ross: families were threatened with
prosecution for paying a ransom but
now the White House has changed the policy
Negotiator: you can deal with ISIS!
Ross: so there has been a change
in policy but the government still
won't pay any ransoms
Stephanopoulos: welcome Richard Clarke
– should the U.S. change the policy and
let families pay terrorists a ransom?
Clarke: no because paying ransom
will only encourage more hostage-taking
Stephanopoulos: Obama's drone
policy is also controversial
Raddatz: they bombed without
knowing who the hell was there
Stephanopoulos: bomb first -
ask questions later
Raddatz: although the drone
policy has really worked
Stephanopoulos: well that's good
Raddatz: before the CIA starts raining
bombs they're supposed to have
near-certainty that there are no civilians there
Clarke: by definition you don't know
who you're killing when you use drones –
you just got to let those missiles fly
and hope for the best
Delaney: we need a hostage czar!

Stephanopoulos: omg another
Vega: Hillary is dogged by reports!
Vega: Hilary is accused of bribery!
Vega: she signed off on the sale
of an American uranium mine to Russia!
Vega: Bill Clinton made a lot of money
which is the first time in history a
politician's spouse has had a job
Clinton: the whole thing is ridiculous
Rubio: it's so so so troubling
Stephanopoulos: welcome Peter Schweizer
Schweizer: nice to be here George
Stephanopoulos: please tell me how
Clinton is unfit to be President
Schweizer: it's a troubling pattern of influence!
Stephanopoulos: you say she's a criminal
Schweizer: yes look at Senator Menendez
Schweizer: there should be an
open-ended criminal investigation
of the Clintons
Stephanopoulos: well why not
Schweizer: Ken Starr is tanned
and rested and ready!
Stephanopoulos: there's no
evidence Clinton changed any
policy based on donations
Schweizer: where there's smoke there's fire!
Stephanopoulos: is there a smoking gun?
Schweizer: the smoking gun is
a pattern of behavior
Stephanopoulos: I see
Schweizer: she's hiding her donations!
Stephanopoulos: your big case is the
uranium mine but the guy sold it before
she was ever Secretary of State
Schweizer: but there are
many layers of donors
Stephanopoulos: eight federal agencies
approved the uranium sale and Clinton
wasn't even involved
Schweizer: yes but she was
in charge of Russia
Stephanopoulos: but nine different
agencies approved the sale
Schweizer: no no no it was all Hillary Clinton!
Stephanopoulos: you've got her at
the center of a web of decision-making
when there's no evidence at all
she was even involved
Schweizer: I question that
Stephanopoulos: do you have
any evidence at all?
Schweizer: no I don't – that's why
we need a broad investigation
Stephanopoulos: you briefed Republicans – did you brief any Democrats
Schweizer: of course I didn't
Stephanopoulos: you're very partisan
Schweizer: I can't be partisan because
I went to The New York Times which is
a well-known friend to the Clintons
Stephanopoulos: but they found no
evidence of wrongdoing at all
Schweizer: that's why we need a
huge endless investigation with subpoena
power and an unlimited budget!
Stephanopoulos: the media dutifully
reported that you are going to write
a book about Jeb Bush – is that true?
Schweizer: we're looking into it
Stephanopoulos: you're never writing
a book about Jeb are you?
Stephanopoulos: thanks for coming
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: omg Hillary is corrupt!
Brazile: there are more drippings
than sauce here
Stephanopoulos: well put Donna
Gingrich: Hillary Clinton is
much worse than Nixon
Stephanopoulos: Richard or Cynthia?
Gingrich: Hillary Clinton will
probably be indicted
Stephanopoulos: Newt you think
Clinton is going to jail?
Gingrich: maybe she killed someone!
Who can say?
Stephanopoulos: strong words
Gingrich: taking foreign money
is against federal law!
Halperin: Bill Clinton increased his
speech fees which is horrible
Stephanopoulos: but there's
no evidence of wrongdoing
Halperin: she deleted e-mails and won't
come on the show today which much worse
Heileman: where are the e-mails?
It's the appearance of obstruction of justice!
Brazile: this is just more there there
Brazile: the Clintons have been very forthcoming!
Gingrich: the Constitution says
you can't take stuff!
Stephanopoulos: I've read that
Gingrich: Clinton is dangerous to America!
Halperin: everyone knows they were
trying to curry influence with the
Secretary of State – I mean who would
want to hear a speech from Bill Clinton?
Stephanopoulos: and that's the last word
