SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Gregg, let's start with Manafort and Corsi. Both of them know what the special counsel wants to hear. They're not giving it to them. That means they are risking, maybe both of them, they're older, maybe risking their whole life in jail as a result of just not saying what Mueller's team wants. Explain the process here. 

GREGG JARRETT (GUEST): Well if it's true, they're to be commended for refusing to lie. All too often overzealous prosecutors don't care about the truth, they care about charges and convictions. And so they use tactics of coercion and threats and bribery and extortion to get people to sign a sheet of paper that they know is a lie in order to implicate someone else based on false evidence. You know, if you and I did that, Sean, it would be suborning perjury but somehow over the years we've allowed the government to do it and it is unconscionable and it's wrong. And that appears to be what's happening here, but we just don't know quite yet.
