BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I know that Eric and your father-in-law took the fifth and they say that that shows, in a civil case, that you knew there were problems there. Is that how you interpret that? 

LARA TRUMP (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well of course not. When you have some bloodthirsty individual like Letitia James who has promised to sue you, to promise to lock you up and do everything she could to take you down. 

KILMEADE: It's a strategy.

TRUMP: You know, attorneys suggest you take the fifth, of course. But this is a woman who — people may not know this, my husband started a charity to raise money for kids at St. Jude Children's Hospital when he was 22 years old. He raised $30 million for the kids at St. Jude and Letitia James has such vitriol and hatred for anyone with the last name Trump, that she decided to investigate my husband's charity despite the fact that it had one of the lowest expense ratios of any private charity in America. And unfortunately guess who was hurt by that? It wasn't my husband. It's the kids of St. Jude, who knows how many kids have died unnecessarily thanks to her investigation and her — just vitriol and hatred for anyone with the last name Trump. It's disgusting.
