BRZEZINSKI: Jonathan Capehart, help me understand, tell me if I'm going down the wrong path here. It appears the Clinton campaign wants to do either a debate that no one will see, or a debate with a moderator that might not be completely fair towards Bernie Sanders. What do you think of the concept of a GMA debate with George Stephanopoulos.

JONATHAN CAPEHART: I think a debate on GMA fits into the first part of your question--

BRZEZINSKI: What about the second part of my question?

JONATHAN CAPEHART: ...As for the second part about George Stephanopoulos, I'm not going to get into that, it has been out there he has donated to the Clinton foundation, and yes he worked for President Clinton in the early 90s, but I'm not going to get into George's credibility or his motivations...

BRZEZINSKI: Am I overstating trying to choose a moderator on GMA by the Clinton campaign that actually worked for the Clintons?

HAROLD FORD: In all fairness to George...

JOE SCARBOROUGH: If I'm going against you, I'm not going to let you have your chief of staff moderat our debate. From the House days, and you wouldn't let my chief of staff.
