BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): The Russia investigation was going nowhere. If you want to question the timing of Comey's dismissal, the letter from the deputy compounded with the letter from the attorney general, handed over to the White House, and then they recommend and they put out this letter that says he's fired, he's finished, he's through, that's fine. But what an enormous leap to say he's covering up something with the Russian investigation. But overall, if there -- is there someone next to the president saying, Mr. President, I understand you got plenty of reason to fire him. I think we should get rid of him. But should we do it on Tuesday in the late afternoon or should we wait to get our political ducks in a row and maybe wait for him to come back from his speech?

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): How do we know that he didn't decide in January he wanted to get rid of this guy, on January 20th, and he decided to wait so that it didn't look like he was firing him immediately because he didn't want the investigation halted. But it's been seven months since all of this Russia collusion mess has been started. There's no evidence to even determine that there was collusion.
