SANDRA SMITH (HOST): We're going to break in with this Fox News alert here. We've have just gotten word former president Donald Trump has been indicted by a grand jury in New York. Trump was under investigation by the D.A.'s office for his alleged hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 campaign. 


JESSE WATTERS (HOST): This is a disgrace, and I think it takes about a week to get the logistics in, so he'll come up and he will get fingerprinted. And they'll get a mug shot and then they'll plaster that mug shot all over the country for the next two years and run against a criminal, and that's what this is all about. 

No one wanted this, not even the left wanted this. But now I'm thinking Bragg got embarrassed because everything you heard over the last 48 hours is they were just going to put this to bed and take a break for a month. So, I don't know if there was pressure put on him because his numbers went up, in the last couple of weeks when this thing swirled. 

So, maybe the left's calculating, that indicting this guy is going to get him the nomination and they think he's easier to beat. But, I wouldn't be so sure about that because there's going to be a major rally around the flag feeling. I'm starting to feel it right now. I'm angry about it. I don't like it. The country's not going to stand for it. And people better be careful, and that's all I'll say about that.
