BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): What are you calling for now, John? You served your time, wrote a book about it, what are you asking for now?
JOHN KIRIAKOU (FORMER CIA ANALYST): I would be forever indebted to the president for a pardon. This president is unlike other presidents. You know, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, they gave pardons and commutations as they were running out the door at the end of their term. So they didn't have to face any political fallout. This president is different. This president accepts political responsibility for his decisions. He has been pardoning people since he got into office because he knows that he's doing the right thing. He sees an injustice and he corrects it. And I'm humbly asking him to correct this.
KILMEADE: And you know what? Open up the case and if what you say is true, I think you certainly have a strong case.
