HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): Is that the goal? To help people come to a conclusion? Because, when stuff comes out -- I have never -- that would be actually helpful to the American people. How many times have you seen it roll out that way, though?
MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): Yeah, it never happens that way.
KATIE PAVLICH (CO-HOST): To your point, Harris, I think once the report is out, whatever it shows, this has been going on for so long, has been so political, that both sides -- the left saying there was collusion despite no evidence of that, continuing that narrative going into the midterms, going into 2020. And some on the right saying and repeating that you have no proof and you're still using it as a political talking point.
What matters here with the report being transparent is reestablishing trust within the institutions. And Robert Mueller has to show that this was not a politically biased investigation, they did things fairly, they did things thoroughly, and allowed the American people to make their own decisions about what he found, rather than having it leaked out in pieces by Democrats or Republicans on certain committees on Capitol Hill.
