RACHEL CAMPOS DUFFY (FOX NEWS CO-HOST): By the way, he is a former principal, so they know a lot about fire alarms, cause they do this stuff all the time. You can't make this stuff up. You know. And so, he says he didn't know, look, why he would do this and think he could get away with it, tells you he feels like he's part of a protected class.

PETE HEGSETH (FOX NEWS CO-HOST): Yeah, above the law.

CAMPOS DUFFY: Yeah he is above the law. He is the right party, the right race -- and I believe the Republicans, by the way, should absolutely throw the book at him. Why? Because he disrupted a proceeding and there are Republican voters sitting in jail in D.C. right now for having done that--

HEGSETH: Yeah a lot of people in jail for disrupting an official proceeding.

CAMPOS DUFFY: That's right.
