ED HENRY (CO-HOST): Let's get serious and talk about Robert Mueller. I mean, they dropped this bomb -- the timing of it, first, I want to start there before we get into the details. So you have a week last week where all of a sudden, David, the pendulum seems to be swinging, and you know Hillary Clinton better than anyone. And all of a sudden, Uranium One is front and center again, this dirty dossier is front and center, and how does the week end after all the heat is on Democrats? It ends with a Friday night shocker, that Robert Mueller is going to start indicting people.
DAVID BOSSIE: It's -- it's part of the problem of Washington. Look, it's one of the reasons that the Republicans and the Trump White House has distrusted this special counsel, because they claimed that they were hiring all these political appointees underneath Mueller. And so you see something like Friday night, and it makes you think that even more, that this is a political operation. They say this is an indictment that is a lower -- potentially a lower level person. Doesn't seem to be, on Sunday here, one of the principals. But it seems to be a lower level person. And by the way, has nothing to do with Russian collusion. Whatever the indictment is, it's not going to be about Russian collusion because there was none, and this is a fabricated storyline by the Democrats.
And I see [former Rep. Dennis Kucinich] talking about the destruction of our relationship with Russia, and I take that very seriously, and I've said this many times over the last nine or ten months, that what the Democrats have done is incredibly dangerous, for political purposes to try to attack this president. Because they want to attack him, they hate him, and they just will use anything. And this has really damaged his ability, in my book, to communicate with the Russians.
