LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): I saw a tweet early this morning, but what's the reaction? Let's start with the news today these indictments were handed down. Paul Manafort, of course, his associate, Mr. [Rick] Gates, and another minor aide to the Trump administration, George Papadopoulos. What's the administration's reaction? I saw a tweet early this morning, but what's the reaction?

JOHN KELLY: Well, I would offer to you first of all, Laura, my job is such that I am completely consumed between 0600 in the morning and whenever I get home at night which is pretty late. I'm not in a position to watch very much on the TV. I know that the gentlemen were indicted today, all of the activities as I understand it that they were indicted for was long before they ever met Donald Trump or had any association with the campaign. But, I think the reaction of the administration is let the legal justice system work, everyone is innocent -- presumed innocent and we’ll see where it goes.
