MATT WALSH (HOST): Well, all I can say about this is that if they go forward with a federal indictment -- federally indicting a leading presidential candidate and a former president as we head into an election year, and they do it for an alleged, quote, unquote, crime that Biden himself, the current president has also committed -- if it is a crime, then he committed it too. We know that. Hillary Clinton, who, by the way, in her position as Secretary of State, did not have the power to declassify documents the way that -- that Trump did. So, if it's this alleged crime that Biden himself has committed, Hillary Clinton committed, and is, apparently, very common, and yet they indict him anyway, then I'm not sure where we go from there because that really is truly a collapse of the republic kind of situation. It just is. For all the talk of the attacks on our democracy, this would be an attack unlike anything we've seen yet. An actual attack on our democracy. And it's an attack on our democracy because it's an attempt to circumvent and subvert the will of the people heading into an election. Because that's, of course, the only reason they're doing this -- to try to take Trump out of the equation so that the voters don't get a chance to choose him. They're worried that voters will choose him again, and so they're trying to take him out of the equation. That is -- I mean, that isn't -- that's -- for all the talk we hear about attacks on our democracy, that's what it looks like. When you try to stop people, prevent people from voting for someone by indicting them and throwing them in prison. For political reasons only, which is all this is.
