AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Let's go to Capitol Hill because the attorney general, William Barr, said he is going to release the Mueller report in the middle of April, right? Well that's not OK with the Democrats. They wanted it released today. They set the deadline.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): “We want the whole thing.”

EARHARDT: That's right. They want it totally unredacted.  The House judiciary committee is demanding the complete version without redactions and access to evidence.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): It makes no sense. You are getting it in two weeks, what's the difference? If he said I'm not going to do it, I understand where you're making the stand. Not only do you look like a hypocrite from your previous stance, but if you can't wait 10 days to get security to clear it and redactions to be effectively put in it, what is your problem? This is a fight that's not even necessary.

EARHARDT: Because they want to change the narrative. They want to change the narrative. They don't want to wait two more weeks, they want to find a little here and a little there and change the narrative.

DOOCY: Because right now the DOJ is going through it and they're trying to figure out, OK what, by law, can we not release? We can't release grand jury stuff, we can't release national secret stuff. Nonetheless, that is what the Democrats are pushing for. Why are the Republicans hiding it? They're hiding it because it's the law. Jerry Nadler said this yesterday, “As I made clear, Congress requires the full and complete special counsel report without redactions as well as access to the underlying evidence. The attorney general should reconsider so that we can work together to ensure the maximum transparency of this important report to both Congress and the American people.” So he wants transparency -- 


Fox's Kilmeade suggests there's no need to release Mueller report because of previous reporting on Trump officials' wrongdoings

Fox contributor claims Trump was “outrageously framed by members of the Obama administration, the FBI, and the Justice Department”

Fox anchor says AG Barr's summary of Mueller's report must be accurate because it was written with “champion of the left,” Rod Rosenstein
