ANNA KOOIMAN (GUEST CO-HOST): That's just it, the timing. Is this a drip, drip, drip come up by the Democrats trying to delay everything until the midterm elections and really fire up their base saying Republicans are bullies? Although Republicans are the ones saying, "We want to hear from Mrs. Ford."

...

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): So, is this enough? You wonder why -- if this meant so much and it was so damaging, which, allegedly, it has been, why wouldn't it come out earlier? Why at this point? Why would you -- why would four Dems know about it, two Dems investigating it, but the chairman of the Judiciary Committee didn't even know about it until yesterday when Ronan Farrow broke it.
