This transcript may not be in its final form and may be updated.   Kash Patel: Hey, everybody and welcome to Kash's Corner, West Coast Edition. Jan, where are we? Jan Jekielek: Well, we're here in Phoenix, Arizona and we've got a lot to cover today. We've got this amazing Nord Stream 2 development. It looks like the pipeline is totally cut off. We've got the whistleblower, Steve Friend, having given out his entire statement. We're going to look into that. We're going to look at whistleblowers in general.

Mr. Patel: Yeah, so a quick primer on Nord Stream 2. If you remember, in the Trump administration it wasn't the sexy thing to ...
