Citation From the October 22 edition of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle:

MATTHEW WHITAKER: I'm a former prosecutor and what I know is this is a perfect time for a preliminary hearing, where you would say, "Show us your evidence. What evidence of a crime do you have?"

I mean, the Constitution, you know, sort of -- abuse of power is not a crime. Let's fundamentally boil it down to -- you know, the Constitution is very clear that this has to be some pretty egregious behavior, and they cannot tell the American people what this case is even about.


LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): This is the revenge of the global elites.

WHITAKER: It really is.
