MATT SCHLAPP (CHAIR, AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNION): Obviously, the whole Russia collusion thing doesn't resonate with voters at all because nobody ran on it just weeks ago. Second of all, what people want is they want to know that if somebody did something wrong, that there's transparency. And I think the number one thing -- the reason why Mueller's numbers are so poor in almost every poll, Harris, is because he almost looks like he's playing a game. He's blackmailing people into saying things and doing things, because they might have had a scummy part of their past. That's not the American way. 

HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): Well they're lying along the way, that -- some of them, that helps in process crimes.

SCHLAPP: I don't want to condone the lying, if there's that.
