I'm very well sir how are you from him.
So the obvious questions.
And I wondered at the time I asked everybody.
Here at fox and it is certain points based national right why would a guy -- Chief White House correspondent -- for number one news network partners.
Right from the National Journal.

Well enough that it can prove that.
The previous that work that had hired -- brought me into this business CNN that fired me told me I had no future in the business was wrong.
That was to put it mildly a motivating factor for me.
But I needed to get back to a place where I was as I said in previous interviews.

And do it for a company that I think is -- trying to reestablish.
The importance the primacy of solid.
And political analysis and reporting.
And push back on.

Those -- your National Journal.

No not at all.
The National Journal and Washington is known from the Supreme Court to every agency of the White House to Capitol Hill.
Every cabinet agency -- the place for you find.
