ANDREW NAPOLITANO (FOX NEWS SENIOR JUDICIAL ANALYST): The statements that were released by -- not by Bob Mueller, but by the acting U.S. attorney in New York City, acting because the U.S. attorney is a Trump appointee, Jeff Berman, who has recused himself. Bob Khuzami, who used to run the enforcement division of the SEC, is the number two person. And so the acting U.S. attorney for this case basically says in the documents filed with the court, Donald Trump paid Michael Cohen to commit a crime. Now, if you pay me to shoot somebody, you are as liable for my shooting them as I am. They haven't charged him with anything, but the implication is clear. The ethics rules do not permit them to make an allegation like that unless they have evidence to substantiate it. As well, this is the most reputable prosecutorial entity in the United States, the Southern District of New York. They're not going to stick their necks out to make an allegation against the president unless they can prove it. The question is, what do they do next?
DAGEN MCDOWELL (FOX BUSINESS ANCHOR): I just want to get back to Comey.
