HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): Senate Judiciary Committee chair [Sen.] Chuck Grassley [(R-IA)] reportedly says he wants the FBI to replace Andrew McCabe. All right, so we got to get to the bottom of whether "Andy" was [FBI Deputy Director] Andrew McCabe. A. B --

KEVIN JACKSON (GUEST CO-HOST): He was.

FAULKNER: -- what else do you want to know?

JACKSON: Well, I think they're going to say, is it -- what was his intent, right? Because that's exactly what FBI Director, former FBI Director [James] Comey said when he was letting Hillary Clinton off the hook. And his intent, regardless of whether it was an assassination attempt or whatever, it was definitely something --

FAULKNER: Whoa, whoa.

JACKSON: Well, I'm just saying, we don't know what it was. When you say, "we've got to make sure that this guy doesn't get in at all cost," what does that mean? So I'm saying there's a spectrum of what does it mean, but one thing that we know for sure, is that he was plotting in an election against a candidate, and there's FBI fingerprints all over this.

FAULKNER: All right, because I know how things get clipped on social media, I just want to make sure that we press in on the fact that no one has floated any sort of an idea that it was [INAUDIBLE]

JACKSON: Oh, it's been floated. When I talk about this, I'm talking about social media stuff and, you know, that's out there, I'm not talking about media sources.

SANDRA SMITH (CO-HOST): Nothing credible.

JACKSON: Well, I mean yeah.
