BRIAN KILMEADE (HOST): The strange thing is [FBI Deputy Director] Andrew McCabe, who seems to be in the middle of this -- and [FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page] were certainly working under him, evidently there's been pressure on [FBI Director] Christopher Wray, "Can you get rid of this guy? You know, he seems to be a little bit of a problem." And Christopher Wray says not only am I not going to get rid of him, if you make me, I'm going to quit. So everything -- I guess he's backed off. Why does he have an allegiance to Andrew McCabe? Why wouldn't you want a fresh start?
