NEWT GINGRICH (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): You guys are in 435 congressional districts every morning, so you can't talk about a purely localized election because the waves of things really matter. That's why I think, for example, that the story on Sunday was so important, that Don McGahn, the White House counsel, had spent 30 hours giving briefings to [special counsel Robert] Mueller's staff with no executive privilege, no presidential client confidentiality. And I have a piece that will come out at Fox News later on today saying this is the end of the Mueller investigation. You can't reasonably ask for more than 30 hours of the White House counsel, find nothing, and claim you need to keep looking. So, I think what you're going to see is by this fall --
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): But we don't know if he found anything. Mr. Speaker, we don't know what he found.
KILMEADE: How do we know what he found?
GINGRICH: Well, we do -- we do know from -- Don McGahn said flatly, he saw nothing that the president did that was any way illegal. And if you have the top lawyer who has testified openly for 30 hours, I think it says that there's nothing there for Mueller or he already would have done something, and his entire investigation, I think, in terms of why he was picked, is a total bust.
