REP. JAMES COMER (GUEST): What we're going to have to do in this House is demand that the senators get our backs, like they're doing as we speak with these debt ceiling negotiations, and hold their budget hostage until they get new leadership at the FBI or they produce the documents that we want. It's not just this form 1023. We also want to know what classified documents Joe Biden had in his possession because that's an important part of our investigation.

JESSE WATTERS (HOST): Congressman, I don't think Senate Republicans are going to deliver. Number one, they usually don't deliver. Number two, they're not even in the majority.

I mean, why doesn't McCarthy get in the room when he's negotiating the debt ceiling with Joe Biden and say "We know what you did -- resign or we're going to blow the debt limit up"? How about that for leverage?
