DAN BONGINO (NRATV HOST): Listen, I've spent nearly 20 years of my life as a cop and a federal investigator. I have never in my life seen such an obvious frame job and setup. This was a sting operation against the Trump team. That is why it's critical that they hide the source. Why is it critical that they hide the source, Steve? Because we've been told the entire time by the hacks in the mainstream media, Democrats, and some establishment Republicans that the case against Trump was just a series of accidental contacts where they ran into the Trump team and they said stuff. But, Steve, let me ask you this: what if those contacts were deliberate? That throws this whole story out the window. I've been saying for months, so have many other people. These were deliberate contacts. This was not a mistake, this investigation.

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I don't know what you mean by that. I don't know what you mean, deliberate contact. People set up there to set up people on the Trump team, so set up this interaction and make it look terrible?

BONGINO: Yes, exactly. Brian, it's like I wind up on a park bench with you and ask you to rob a bank with me, and you've never met me before. You're like, "who's this guy?" There's only two possible explanations. Either you really want me to rob a bank with you, or I'm trying to frame you for robbing the bank. I'd say it's the latter with Trump.
