BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And the one thing they're pursuing on the other side, the thing that came out yesterday -- And I was saying this with Sean [Hannity] last night. Every time something happens where the president gets on a roll; whether it's the Poland speech, or the rise in the market, or the economy at 3 percent. There is some type of opposition research almost jumps down and holds on.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): It's like they hold it.
KILMEADE: And it just, it seems like they're running timing patterns. The latest one is the WikiLeaks revelation that Cambridge Analytica reached out to Julian Assange to find out if they had the 30,000 emails from Hillary Clinton. He did confirm yesterday they did reach out: "I didn't give them an answer." Cambridge Analytica was just one of the private firms hired by the Trump campaign at some point on the social media side.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well ultimately the president did say in the very beginning there is nothing to the Russia thing and now we are learning maybe not so much --
EARHARDT: There is, there is.
DOOCY: Regarding him and collusion.
