HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS. HE WAS — IS THE CHAIR OF THE HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS. THIS MORNING WE HAVE A MESSAGE ON CAPITOL HILL. Reporter: YOU KNOW THE OLD SAYING, ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. IN THE U.S. SENATE, WE ARE FORCED TO LOOK AT WORDS AS A MEASURE OF POLITICAL SINCERITY. WITH THAT, I GIVE YOU A TASTE OF THE FAREWELL SPEECH OF UTAH SENATOR ORRIN HATCH. INDEED, MY HEART IS HEAVY. THE TIMES WE ACTUALLY LIVED UP TO OUR REPUTATION AS THE WORLD’S GREATEST DELIBERATIVE BODY IT LONGS FOR THE DAYS WHEN DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS WOULD MEET ON MIDDLE GROUND. Reporter: YES, AREN’T WE ALL NOSTALGIC FOR THAT. AND HE DIDN’T STOP THERE, CALLING FOR A RETURN TO OLD STANDARDS OF CIVILITY AND RESPECT FOR THE LAW. YET, JUST HOURS BEFORE, A CNN REPORTER GOT THIS RESPONSE WHETHER HE ASKED HATCH ABOUT THE PRESIDENT BEING IMPLICATED IN THE MICHAEL COHEN CASE. THE DEMOCRATS WILL DO ANYTHING TO HURT THIS PRESIDENT. ANYTHING. WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT, YOU KNOW, IS ONE THING. BUT SINCE HE HAS BEEN ELECTED, THE ECONOMY HAS DONE WELL, OUR COUNTRY IS MOVING AHEAD, WE ARE IN BETTER SHAPE THAN WE WERE BEFORE HE BECAME PRESIDENT AND I THINK WE OUGHT TO JUDGE HIM ON THAT BASIS. Reporter: BUT THIS IS NOT THE DEMOCRATS, IT IS THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK, IT IS THE U.S. ATTORNEY. IS HE A REPUBLICAN? Reporter: HE IS APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT. OKAY. BUT I DON’T CARE. Reporter: I DON’T CARE. ABOUT THE FACTS, ABOUT POTENTIAL CRIMINALITY, ABOUT CIVIL BEHAVIOR THAT RESPECTS IT IS LAW. IT SEEMS ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS THE PARTISANSHIP HE WAS ABOUT TO DECRY ON HIS WAY OUT THE DOOR. IN THIS CASE IT SEEMS WORDS DO
