Below find a rough transcript of Ask a Pol’s exclusive interview with Rep. Andy Ogles (R-IN), slightly edited for clarity.

TRANSCRIPT: Rep. Andy Ogles

SCENE: Ogles leaves the SCIF with UAP Caucus Co-chairs Anna Paulina Luna and Tim Burchett who both avoid NewsNation’s camera and crew. Their attempt to avoid Ask a Pol’s Matt Laslo fails — as he laughed to their faces! — as they tried to escape by hopping one of the slowest elevators we’ve ever ridden.

Laslo address the UAP Caucus Co-chairs first.

Matt Laslo: “You running?”

ML: “How’d it go?”

Burchett from a distance: “I have nothing to report, brother.”

Luna, further distance: “Nothing burger.”

ML: “How did it go in there?”

Andy Ogles: “I’ll let Burchett and Luna answer that question.”

ML: “These elevators are terribly slow. I’m gonna beat them up there.”

AO: “There you go.”

ML: “I’ve been here 18 years. Y’all can’t hide from me. Are you — how are you feeling though?”

AO: “Unimpressed, as usual.”

Rep. Ogles laughs.

ML: “Yeah? Like they weren’t forthcoming or that…?”

AO: “Oh, I’ll hold comment on that.”

ML: “Yeah?”

AO: “Well, get my steps in then.”

End scene.
