AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): The president, thank goodness he has the money to hire attorneys, because you have got to fight back in these situations. If Mueller is going after him and his character, he is saying I'm going to fight back, because he says there is no investigation here. The FBI, James Comey, former FBI director said that -- said three times in his meetings with him we're not investigating you.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): One of the most extraordinary under reported things. Not unreported, but under reported things that came out of James Comey's testimony was "I knew, after I found out what the president thought, when he tweeted out, I said I woke up in the middle of the night and I said I have got to go get my side of the story out, I'm going to call my professor at Columbia, who called The New York Times," and this anonymous source close to James Comey was James Comey, and they put together -- he gave up his diary notes. And they put together what he said happened between him and the president. And at the end of it he said, "and I knew if I released this it would result in a special counsel." Oh, really? Guess who is running a special counsel. Your buddy Robert Mueller. I know, he's got this great reputation, but they've worked together for 30 years, hand in hand. So he says "wait a second. You put this out there to get a special counsel, and now the president has got to feel as though he's going to get a fair shake at this?" This is dangerous, especially if you look at the quality of criminal attorneys. This guy's putting together a murderer's row of criminal attorneys that's going to examine the Trump administration.
