AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): What is the DOJ supposed to do? If the most powerful man in the country sees that there's a problem, he shouldn't be able to say you need to investigate because that would be an abuse of power? That's what he is there for. That's what the DOJ is there for. And so says the lady, who says, "we're a country about laws," so says the lady that -- she says, "I went around the country when I was secretary of state," bragging about we were a country of laws. "We don't want to become like a dictatorship, and if he investigates me this is going to be a dictatorship." Says the lady who abused her power by lying to the country, saying she only had one cell phone, when that was debunked, then saying she didn't know about the secret server. She has a secret server. And then sharing classified information. Also she says in that statement, she says, "Has Uranium One been debunked -- Uranium One has been debunked countless times by the press and by independent experts." Who's the press? CNN? Wall Street Journal -- Wall Street -- I mean, The Washington Post? The New York Times?
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Her defenders say nine other agencies had to sign off on it. Peter Schweizer wrote about this at least two years ago in his book Clinton Cash, which was picked up and excerpted by The New York Times.
