BRET BAIER (FOX NEWS CHIEF POLITICAL ANCHOR): That was quite something, almost surreal at points. As the president was re-litigating the election of 2016 and making the case again that there was no collusion, saying at one point -- asked if he believed his own U.S. intelligence agencies or President Putin on his strong denial -- saying that Putin was very strong in his denial and he believed both parties, and then, as you mentioned, wanted to find out where the server was. I think the upside for the administration is that the communication, the dialogue continues. Clearly the president brought up the interference and the meddling, he brought up sticky issues with Russia, but the way that he dealt with it, defending himself, really not going after President Putin was pretty interesting to watch, Bill. 

BILL HEMMER (CO-HOST): And we'll see his detractors take a shot at that
