AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Washington Post last week said the president was under investigation. Turns out those were five anonymous sources, so we don't know who was giving that information. So, the president tweeted last week. He said, "I am being investigated for firing the the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director."
EARHARDT: So, David, he is not under investigation, right?
DAVID BOSSIE: Well that's right. He's not under investigation, and that's important for the American people to understand. Look, there is an ongoing counterintelligence investigation into whether or not Russia meddled in our elections. We all understand that, but we have to understand there's no underlying basis for the Trump campaign to have been involved with the Russians. There's no facts, no evidence whatsoever that the president or our team had any coordination with the Russians. This is a ridiculous allegation, and it's going to be proven false over the summer at some point, that [Russia probe special counsel Robert] Mueller is going to come out and have to acknowledge that there's no evidence. Look, the -- we've been under investigation for over seven months now, almost a year, I'd say, since these allegations -- ridiculous allegations first came up. So, we've had no evidence come up. The Washington Post and others want to create these stories and there's -- with anonymous sources from the -- from what we call the deep state. These are the folks that want to do damage to this president, want to try to nullify an election, really are what I'd consider -- I'd say they're guilty of what Charles Krauthammer termed the Trump derangement syndrome. That these people have a sickness, a pathology to them, that really is a -- we have a problem here in America.
