STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well, you know, the one thing about the fact that he has revealed that apparently there were these chats between him and [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein and others regarding using 25th Amendment to get rid of the president of the United States, you know, you would think that the administration would love that because it continues the narrative that is out there that there's a deep state out there at the highest reaches of government that are working against the president. And then, when you see [former Deputy Director FBI] Andy McCabe on television saying, “Yeah, I had this conversation, we were trying to figure out how to do it,” the president and his team say, “See, that's exactly what we've been talking about the last two years. There is a deep state and he is proving it.”  

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): He has not had a good answer to the question of why his wife got $680,000 from the Hillary Clinton campaign. They never met, was his answer. For a state Senate race, it's pretty substantial. We also don't know why $140 million goes to the Clinton Foundation, but Hillary Clinton had -- from Russia -- but Hillary Clinton didn't raise up any eyebrows without any of her possibly being compromised by that country. And we also don't know about an investigation that happened July 5 where Hillary Clinton was questioned, but not under oath, with nobody taping it at all. But she doesn't -- no one ever asks these questions to him. And the dossier was the foundation of all of it, barely comes up in any of this cross examination. 

DOOCY: Well, he's on a book tour. If he'd like to stop by the couch, we've got a space right here.

Fact Check: Trump Wrong About Campaign Donations


Lou Dobbs says McCabe confessed to “FBI plans to carry out what was and is nothing less than the attempted overthrow of the U.S. government”

Sean Hannity repeatedly claims Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe were engaged in “an attempted coup”

Trump keeps channeling Fox’s “coup” nonsense. This could end badly.
