ADAM:EL WCOME BACK. WE’VE GOT A WIDE-OPEN GOP PRIMARY FOR U.S. SENATE, AND SENATOR MAGGIE HASSAN IS ONE OF THE MOST VULNERABLE INCUMBENTS IN THE NIOATN. ONE OF THE MANY REPUBLICANS VYGIN TO UNSEAT HER JOINS US THIS MORNING. >> GREAT TO BE BACK AND MY BEST TO ALL OF YOUR VIEWERS. ADAM: AND WE GOT TO VICTOR THE SERVICE DOG SO IF YOU MAKES AN APPEARANCE, THAT IS WHO THAT IS. >> HE DOES THAT. AD:AM GENERAL, YOU HAVE BEEN IN THE RACE FOR A LGON TIME, WORKED SO HARD AT GETTING ETH CONSERVATIVE GRASSROOTS. FUNDRAISING HAS LAGGED, BUT YOU ARE STILL IN THE MIX. HOW DO YOU CONTRAST YOURSELVES WITH OTHERS IN THE RACE LIKE CHUCK MORRIS AND KEVIN SMITH. >> FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR THAT QUESTION BECAUSE THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. WHEN IT COMES TO FUNDRAISING, I’VE BEEN IN THE RACE FOR A YEAR AND A HALF WE’VE RAISED OUENGH MONEY TO STAY IN THE PRIMARY, AND TO RUN OUR PRIMARY CANDIDACY, RIGHT? AND SO I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT THAT. WHAT I AM FOCUSED ON IS ESTABLISHING THAT GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN STRUCTURE WHICH WE HAVE ESTABLISHED, AND THAT HAS PAID HUGE DIVIDENDS. I DON’T PAY ANYBODY FOR COUNTING CHAI,RS I D’ONT PAY ANYBODY FOR TOWN CHAIRS, FOR CITY CHAIRS. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED ALL ACROSS THE STATE IN A WAY THAT ALLOWS US TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH ANYBODY WE CAN AND SCHEDULE ANYTHING WE CAN AND RESPOND TO INQUIRIES. AND I THINK THIS A SHOWN A STARK DIFFERCEEN BETWEEN NOT ONLY CHUCK MORRIS AND KEVIN SMITH, ALSO MAGGIE HASSAN, WHO DO THE TOP DOWN, THE HIGH-END FUNDRAISING, THE ADS AND THE THINGS LIKE THAT. LET’S LOOK AT MAGGIE HASSAN. SHE HAS BEEN RUNNING AGAINST ME FOR WELL OVER A YEAR AND A HALF NOW, BENDING $10 MILLION ON ADS, GOING FROM 51% TO 35% APPROVAL RATING. A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, I WAS 30 POINTS BEHIND HER AND I AM NOW TIED WITH HER AND I HAVE AN EDGE ON THEND IEPENDENTS WITH HER. I THINK THE GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN THAT WE ARE DOING, THE TOWNHALL STRUCTURE, THE AMERICAN STRENGTH AGENDA THAT FOCUSES ON THE ECONOMY AND OUT-OF-CONTROL SPENDING AND SAFETY AND SECUTYRI OF AMERICANS, AND REALLY THE DIVISIVENESS ON BOTH SIDES OF ALREADY, AND FIGHTING THE ESTABLISHMENT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE PARTY, THAT IS ANOTHER THING. I AM NOT THE ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE. SHE IS, AND SO ARE MY OPPONEN.TS I AM THE OUTSIDER. ADAM: 2020, YOU FELT LIKE HE REALLY GOT DONE DIRTY IN TERMS OF YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS VOTERS DAN EVENTS YOU FEEL YOU ARE GETTING A FAIR SHAKE IN 2022? >> 2022 IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE GRANITE STATER’S ARE DIFFERENT. THEY ARE APPROACHING THIS IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAY THAN THEY DID IN 2020. THEY HAVE REALIZED THAT BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, WHETHER IT IS REPUBLICAORN DEMOCRAT, ARE NOT SERVING HIM WELL, AND THEY HAVE GOT THEM IN THE MESS THAT THEY ARE IN. THEY’VE GOT A LOT OF EXPLAINING TO DO. IN ANY PROXY THAT IS BROUGHT ON BOARD THAT THEY CAN CONTROL IN ORDERO T FURTHER THE STATUSUO Q, THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF EXPLAINING TO DO TO VOTERS. I’VE BEEN ALL OVER THE STATE MULTIPLE TIMES. REMO SO THAN ANY OTHER CANDIDATE. ESPECIALLY MAGGIE HASSAN. AND I AM DEVASTATED BY WHAT I SEE,ND A WHAT I HEAR, AND WHAT I FEEL. BOTH PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NOTICE THAT TY HAHEVE NOT DONE ETH JOB, ONE, FOR GRANITE STATERS, AND FOR AMERICANS. I HAVE VISITED THE HOMELESS UNRDE BRIDGES, HOMELESS VETERANS UNDER BRIDGES. I HAVE TALKED TO MANY PEOEPL IN MANY TOWNHALL SETTINGS IN OTHER SETTINGS. JUST YESTERDAY, I SPOKE WITH A HOUSE PARTY, A GROUP OF PEOPLE OUT IN KINGSTON, AND TALKED TO A SINGLE-PARENT YOUNG LADY WHO’’ HOMESCHOOLING HER KIDS BECAUSE SHE FEELS AS A PARENT SHE DOESN’T HAVE A SAY IN WHAT HER KID IS TAUGHT. AND WHEN RHE CHILD COMES HOME WITH IDEAS THAT SHE FEELS ARE BETTER LEFT TO PARENTS, SHE HAS BECOME VERY DISCOURAGED. SHE IAS NSEUR WITH A FULL-TIME JOB AND SHE IS TEACHING HER CHILD AT HOME BECAUSE THE ESTABLISHMENT HAS NOT STOOD UP FOR PARENTAL RIGHTS AND HASN’T STOOD UP FOR ROU PARENTS, WHETHER IT IS MEDICAL, WHETHER IT IS SCHOOL, THE ECONOMY, LOOK AT THE HIGH INFLATION, THE ENERGY. PEOPLE ARE HURTING. AND I SHARE THAT WITH THEM. WE ARELL I AN THE SAME BOAT HERE. WE ARE ALL PAYING FOR GAS, HIGH GAS RATES, HIGH FOOD, HIGH ENERGY. THAT IS WHAT GRATENI STATERS ARE FOR, AND I UNDERSTAND THAT. I AM GETTING OUT INSIDE THE PEOPLE IN A BOTTOMP-U WAY OTHER CANDIDATES ARE COMING TOP DOWN, WHETHER IT IS ADS ON TORV HIGH-END FUNDRAISERS WITH PEOPLE THAT WANT TO CONTROL THE CANDIDATE OR PEOPLE WHO HAVE SELECTED THE CANDIDATE. THIS WHOLE ESTABLISHMENT THING THAT WE HAVE GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY WHERE CAREER POLITICIANS, SPECIAL-INTEREST, LOBBYISTS, AND REALLY WELL THE POLITICAL ELITES RUN THE SHOW HAS GOT TO CHANGE. IT GOT US INTO THIS MESS. ADAM: LET’S TAKE ON SOME FOREIGN POLICY. A LOT OF REPLIUBCANS ARE QUESTIONING BY THE U.S. WOULD SEND $40 BILLION TO HELP UKRAINE AGAINST RUSSIA. IF YOU WERE IN THE SENATE, HOW WOULD YOU HAVE VOTED? >> I WOULD HAVE VOTED NO, AND I WILL TELL YOU WHY. ALL THIS TIME HAS PASSED FOR RESOLVE THE BINDE ADMINISTRATION SIT ON THEIR HANDS WHICH GAVE PUTIN THE TIME AND SPACE TO BE ABLE TO DO THE INVASION, AND THEN NATO AND E THUNITED STATES BEHIND THE PEROW CURVE CAME IN, THEY THREW SOME SANCTIONS AT THEM, DID NOT GET THEM TO ADJUST HIS BEHAVIOR AT ALL. WE DID WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO AND WITHOUT PUTTING BOOTS ON THE GROUND, HELPED THE RESISTANCE, AND THE RESISTANCE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL. WELL WHERES ITHE REST OF THE STRATEGY? WHERISE HOW WE ARE GOING TO GET THESE GUYS TO THE TABLE TO TALK ABOUT PEACE? HOWEVER GOI TNGO RESELL THE REFUGEES? — RESETTLE THE REFUGEES? HOWEVER GOING TO PAY FOR THIS? HOW ARE WE GOINGO THOLD THE RUSSIANS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE DAMAGE THEY HAVE DONE? THIS $40 BILLION, ONE, WE DON’T HAVE IT, AND TWO, IT IS JUST GOING TO THE SAME OLD STUFF. THREE, WE HAVEN’T EVEN FINISHED WITH THE OGIRINAL AID PACKAGE IN PROVIDING THE MONEY UNDER THE ORIGINAL AID PACKAGE. $13.5 BILLION THAT IS GOING DIRECTLY TO UKRAINIAN GOVERNMTEN THROUGH OUR STATE DEPARTMENT IS VERY CONCERNING TO ME. I’VE SNEE THIS IN AFGHANISTAN AND AFRICA. THIS TOP-DOWN APPROACH WHERE YOU JUST THROW MONEY AT THE GOVERNMENT IS A HUGE SOURCE OF CORRUPTION. AND I AM THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT HAS THIS EXPERIENCE. NOT EVEN MAGGIE HASSAN HAS THIS EXPERIENCE. I HAVE SEEN IT, I HAVE LIVED .IT I HAVE RESPECTFULLY BROUGHT THIS TO THE ATTENTION OF MY SUPERIORS AND I WAS A SUBORDINATE COMMANDER, AND I’VE WATCHED IT HAPPEN. SO I KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON, AND I WOULD’VE BEEN A NO ON THIS VOTE BECAUSE OF NO STRATEGY ATTACHED TO IT. ADAM: THE LACK OF DEFEDIN STRATEGY IS ONE THING. IS IT NOT A BIGGER GIFT TO PUT INTO NOT HELP UKRAINIANS AT ALL? >> YES, OF COURSE, THAT IF WE E ARGOING TO HELP THEM WITH FUNDING, MONEY THAT WE DON’T HAVE, WE NEETOD EXPLAIN TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHY, AND WHO ELSE IS GETTING MONEY. WE ARE NOT THE WLDOR BANK, THE BANK OF UKRAINE, WE ARE NOT A WORLD POLICE. AND WE HAVE GO TTO START PUTTING MEASURES IN PLACE WHERE WE ARE BEING ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOE.PL IT IS THEIR MONEY. IT IS NOT THE GOVERNMENTS MONEY, NOT THE ADMINISTRATION’S MONEY, IS THE PEOPLE’S MONEY. D ANRIGHT NOW WE ARE PRINTING AND GETTING OTHER PEOPLE MONEY THAT WE DON’T HAVE. IT IS TIME TO TAKE CARE OF AMERICA. ADAM: DO U YOBELIEVE PRESIDTEN BIDEN HAS COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE? >> I THINK HE COMMITTEDND A IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE WITH THE WAY HE LEFT AFGHANISTAN AND I THINK THAT THE SECRETARY OF STATE HAS, THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE HAS. I BELIEVE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF HAS. I BELIEVE THAT MCKENZIE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO RETIRE AT THE RANK OF FOUR-ST.AR I BELIEVE THAT ALL THE GENERALS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE TACTICAL LEVEL SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE 13 LIVES AND 22 SERVICE MEMBERS THAT WERE SERIOUSLY INJURED IN A HUNDREDS OF AFGHANS, AND LEADING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WOULD’VE EQUIPMENT IN THE HANDS OF THE TALINBA OVERNIGHT, MAKING THEM MORE CAPAEBL TNHA 164 OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD MILITARILY, AND THEN ALLOWING THEM TO DO THE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY THAT THEY ARE DOING RIGHT NOW TO THE AFGHAN PEOPLE. THAT IS A TERRLEIB THING, AND REALLY, I THINK THE BIG THING IS 7070 AMERINSCA, 7000 70 AMERICANS GAVE TIRHE LIVES BETWEEN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN AND OTHER PLACES IN THE WAR ON TERROR. AND THEY DIED FOR A REASON. AND THE WAY JOE BIDEN AND HIS TEAM CAME OUT OF AFGHANIANSTAS W A DISCREDIT TO THAT SACRIFICE. HE NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. AD:AM UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE HIT OUR TIME FOR TODAY BUT WE WILL CHECK IN WITH YOU AGAIN HOUSE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. >> IT IS AN HONOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS Y
