BILL O'REILLY (HOST): This comes from the California Attorney General. Why? Why was his house raided?

EBONI WILLIAMS: Yeah. Ms. Kamala here is the A.G. in Cali, she disposed of 11 agents, which was pretty aggressive for the nature of the crime.

O'REILLY: 11 agents went into the guy's house.

WILLIAMS: 11 California agents went into the home to confiscate -- primarily, they wanted evidence. They wanted hard drives, computers and information, and of course those IDs you talked about. Rather low level felonies, but felonies indeed. What was interesting to me, Bill, and I'm looking at the search warrant right here, and I went through it with a fine tooth comb. They were looking for very low level stuff, so the 11 agents seem as bit aggressive. Now, normally whenyou have got 11 agents, drugs, arms, millions of dollars worth of property.

O'REILLY: Sure, a big thing. So what are they after Daleiden for doing? Portraying himself --

WILLIAMS: -- Fraudulent, yeah fraudulent identifications, fake drivers licenses.

O'REILLY: But then if that were the case, all of 60 Minutes would be in jail, because they did stings all the time.

WILLIAMS: It's investigative.

O'REILLY: I have done them, so we would all be in prison.

[...]

MONICA CROWLEY: The timing is very suspicious.

O'REILLY: This is a political thing.

CROWLEY: There's something else here, [Kamala Harris] is running for the US Senate. On her senate campaign website she is soliciting signatures to defend Planned Parenthood. Over the course of her political career, Bill, she has accepted over 2,100 dollars from individuals and super PACs for Planned Parenthood.

O'REILLY: One more question, Eboni. This looks very political, would you agree?

WILLIAMS: I think the timing is very suspicious, I agree. I don't like the timing.

O'REILLY: We're not supposed to have political prosecutions in this country, isn't that correct?

WILLIAMS: No, that's correct. what's disturbing is --

O'REILLY: If I were Mr. Daleiden and his attorneys, I would file a federal lawsuit here.
