WILL CAIN (CO-HOST): It's not truly about declassified materials or classified materials. It's not even really about the Espionage Act which, by the way, can encompass, and does in the statute, very minor grievances like not giving information over to the National Archives, not that you're a super-spy with the nuclear codes, but you just simply didn't comply with the National Archives. It's not about any of that.

It is a blank slate that allows the DOJ to find something, anything, to disqualify Donald Trump for running for president: Either disqualify him in a long drawn-out legal case that ends up at the Supreme Court or simply in the American public's mind and if that is the case, to your point, Dagen, it better be egregious. It better be more than the nuclear codes which, let's be real, change when the administration changes. It better be egregious.

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): They change regularly. I was kidding the day that I said that about nuclear codes. It's not like you write them on a scrap of paper.
