"Is this a calculated coup against President Trump, and if so, how do you back that up?" Henry asked Nunes, with Nunes responding that the inquiry was "the cheap knockoff version of the Russia hoax."

"It appears like some bureaucracy - some parts of the bureaucracy were really mad that they didn't like that President Trump had a special envoy to Ukraine. They didn't like that he was sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to find out where the dirt was coming from that the Democrats were using to feed to the FBI," Nunes added.

Henry continued to press Nunes on how he justified the "coup" characterization, noting "impeachment is in the Constitution, so how is it a coup if Democrats are going through the procedures that were set up by the Framers?"

Nunes responded by distinguishing between the Constitution and House precedent insisting that for impeachment to be "credible," "both parties [should[ have whatever witnesses they want" and subpoena power.

"Secondly, the president should be there if you're going to have a fair process," he added.
