MARK LEVIN, HOST: Hello America, I'm Mark Levin. This is "Life, Liberty & Levin." We two great guests. Congressman Mo Brooks. How are you, sir?

REP. MO BROOKS, R-ALA.: Doing fine.

LEVIN: Congressman Matt Gaetz.

REP. MATT GAETZ, R-FLA.: Good to see you.

LEVIN: Good to see you, fellows. Well, the other day you had quite a little session on the floor of the House of Representatives. Every Democrat but two voted for what they call a resolution. And every Republican voted against it and two Democrats joined you.

And I want to get into this in a moment because I see a lot of propaganda here where a lot of the Democrats are saying, we're doing exactly the same thing we did with Bill Clinton.

Well, the funny thing is, I have both resolutions. And they're doing exactly the opposite. But before we get to that, I agree with the President. We're ought to talk a little bit about substance and the substance of this phone call.

We have the phone call. I don't know what we need witnesses for. A witness -- why can't we read English? Can't we reason? Can't we digest this stuff? So I need a whistleblower to tell me what I'm reading. I need a Lieutenant Colonel to tell me what I'm reading. No.

So let's read one of the sentences that they say is the troubling sentence. All right. Now, this is deep into the conversation. In fact, it's near the end of the conversation, where the President says to the President of the Ukraine, " ... the other thing, there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of the people want to find out about that. So whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that stop the prosecution. So if you can look into it, it sounds horrible to me."

Is that not a public fact, Representative Gaetz that Biden was bragging about the fact that he stopped the prosecution?

GAETZ: Of course. And we've learned over the course of these interviews that the Democrats defense, well, there were all these international organizations that also wanted the prosecutor gun is bogus. Because those international organizations were reacting to what was emanating from the United States, where Joe Biden specifically wanted to get rid of a prosecutor in exchange for aid -- a quid pro quo.

And by the way, oftentimes in American foreign policy, we demand things in exchange for aid. But what Joe Biden did was a little odd, because it seemed to be directly related to investigations of his family and his son.

And Mark, how in the hell is the United States of America supposed to pursue an anti-corruption agenda globally if the second family of the United States is running a pay-for-play scheme out of the Vice President's office?
