STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): According to the memos, Mr. Comey was told by Mr. Trump, "hey, can you tell people that I'm not the subject of the investigation," and he goes, "really can't do that." And Trump obviously was frustrated. 

ANDREW MCCARTHY (NATIONAL REVIEW): Yeah, he was frustrated, and I think the country should be frustrated as well. And I say this as a law enforcement person, because I'll always think of myself that way, who's had to learn over time that sometimes there's more important things than your little case or your little prosecution. 

DOOCY: Sure.

MCCARTHY: The job of being president of the United States is the most important job that we have in this government, and I don't think anyone should have a problem with the idea that the president can be investigated, the president's not above the law, as long as have you strong evidence that the president has done something corrupt. But if you don't, then you shouldn't have a special counsel investigation and you shouldn't make the president govern under a cloud, and that's what's going on for a year and a half. 

DOOCY: Absolutely, and yesterday it was revealed that apparently [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein told the president when he was in the Oval Office last week that he was not the subject of the investigation -- any investigation.
