BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Wouldn't it be interesting if Judge Sullivan, who has a history of this, Judge Emmet Sullivan, who already ordered the Mueller probe to come back and be forthcoming with these documents. Can you imagine if he goes back to this, "Not only am I not giving him prison, I don't even think he should have been charged." And that would be the first body blow that Mueller really has received.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well, he's already been charged, so he could just throw it out of court.
DOOCY: Ultimately, though, does it set up the president of the United States pardoning Michael Flynn? There's a real good chance that that is true. How many times we heard the president talk about how this witch hunt has been unjust? And he feels that an innocent man was caught up just in a web of things, although the president did fire Michael Flynn for lying to the vice president.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Yes he did.
KILMEADE: Because then the vice president went out and said that the president -- that Mike Flynn never talked to [Former Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey] Kislyak, when he did.
EARHARDT: Well, we'll see if he pardon him. I'm sure Mike Flynn, obviously, would love that.
