STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Apparently on January 4, the Trump team, the transition team, found out that Mr. Flynn was under investigation. Apparently there was an federal investigation, is an ongoing federal investigation, looking into whether or not Flynn was secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign. There's Mr. Flynn screen-left right there. Also, it looks like the two names that keep coming up are Mr. Flynn and Paul Manafort. And apparently down in the commonwealth of Virginia, there have been a number of grand juries impaneled and according to NBC News, apparently both are formally considered subjects of a criminal investigation. No suggestion the president involved. But these two fellows apparently subjects of a criminal investigation according to NBC News.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Because he was working for [former Ukranian President Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych], who was a stooge of the Russians who was ousted by the Ukrainian people who wanted a true voice in their own government. However, when you are a strategist, you could be a strategist for Nigeria, you could be a strategist for Bulgaria because you're an American expert. Since the world is so interconnected and have you an expertise, they will use you other places. We saw that, Joe Trippi was telling me how many differential countries he worked with in Africa.
