STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Do you think the intel community, some members of the Obama administration, were out to get President Trump, or is he just mistaken?
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I've actually got to add one other thing. [Rep.] Louie Gohmert [(R-TX)] said this a couple of days ago, [Rep.] Devin Nunes [(R-CA)] has clarified it. Not only did the Russian[s] hit us on the election, a foreign entity was able to get to Hillary Clinton's 30,000 emails, and Louie Gohmert said it on our show a couple of days ago. When the president says 'not just Russia', that's what he's saying. 'Yeah, I think it's Russia, and I think it's others.' He's not winging it, he's been told it.
DOOCY: And it might be more than one country. We've heard that.
KILMEADE: Yeah. That's part of the narrative, don't pretend it's only Russia.
DOOCY: When it's unsecured, three, or four, or five countries could get in. So, stay tuned. We hear they're investigating.
