TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You may remember that Robert Mueller's investigation was created originally with a very clear purpose, finding evidence of Russian meddling in the U.S. elections, "Putin hacked our democracy," and so this investigation was going to look into possible collusion between Russians and Americans. There's supposed to be a lot of evidence of that.
There hasn't been, virtually none has turned up. Instead, the investigation has continued, though, and it's evolved, just as some of us warned it would a year ago -- just like all of these investigations do. It has -- again, like all of them -- become an endless all-purpose investigation of the president, his life, his business, his friends, even his sex life, as we've seen this last week.
CARLSON: The point is that we saw, this week, federal agents basically break into the office of the president's lawyer, in search of facts about the Access Hollywood tape and a porn star.
REP. SEAN PATRICK MALONEY (D-NY): Right. I think when you say "break in," you mean, "execute a legal warrant" --
CARLSON: They came in by force, so they weren't welcome, and --
MALONEY: That's what -- that's what people do when they execute a search warrant.
CARLSON: But is it -- I'm aware of that --
MALONEY: That's called due process, by the way.
CARLSON: I'm aware of that, but is it a good thing? I mean, so -- I just want a Democrat to say, "You know what? I'm not for this."
