KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE (CO-HOST): Alright so, Eric, you think the messaging was good in terms of him coming out at 4 o'clock, saying that he was going to recuse himself and you know, giving some specific in terms of the allegations?

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): Terrible idea. I hated the fact that he did that. I mean, look back at the fact--

GUILFOYLE: That he talked about it or that he recused--

BOLLING: No that he recused himself. I feel that that was a weak moment for the Attorney General and I think he could have stepped up and said I did nothing wrong; U.S. senators, especially senators who chair the Senate armed services committee will have contact with certain Russian ambassadors. You remember when Bill Clinton boarded Loretta Lynch's airplane during the investigation of his wife for e-mail scandal and who knows what was going on. Well, she felt bad about that but she didn't recuse herself, she said “I'll go by whatever James Comey says is his final decision on whether Hillary Clinton should be indicted or not.” That is not a recusal. That is basically saying I'm kicking the can down the road.
