TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I'm not defending her, I have no idea if she's a good person or not. But from what I can tell she didn't steal anything, I couldn't even understand what her agenda was from the news stories, The Washington Post, made it sound like she trying to bring the U.S. And Russia closer together and now she's in jail. What is her crime?
BYRON YORK: I have had people say to me, "Look, If the FBI had evidence that she was in touch with her Russian handlers handing over the nuclear codes, she would not have been charged with this foreign registration sort of thing."
CARLSON: With this B.S. charge, she would have a real charge.
YORK: This is not serious like that. In cases like this do sometimes end with the United States deporting the person and they can't come in.
CARLSON: Look, if she did something wrong, charge her with it.
