BILL HEMMER (CO-HOST): I want to squeeze in one more question here on the [Department of Justice Inspector General Michael] Horowitz testimony from yesterday. Thirty seconds. What's the most significant finding you think we have so far? 

REP. PETER KING (R-NY): I think the fact that he was able to repeat just how many abuses there were, how much bias there was. Now, whether or not he concludes that the overall findings are biased, when you have everyone -- almost everyone who’s involved in the process being biased, to me, it'd be like if you had 12 Klansmen on a jury, and an African-American was convicted, and the evidence wasn't there. Maybe you can't find the bias in the courtroom or in the jury room, but you know that those people are biased going in, and that's the way I see this with the FBI. 

HEMMER: Wow. Peter King, thank you.
