LISA BOOTHE (CO-HOST): Can we just make the case now and admit the fact that it's intellectually dishonest to say that Trump's going to try to stop the Mueller investigation? This thing has been going on since May of 2017, they've been active participants, Giuliani has said previously they've had access to 1.4 million documents, 30-something witnesses, President Trump himself has submitted these written questions to him. So, he's not going to stop the investigation. And, like everything with the Trump administration, this is being over-hyped and sensationalized. Additionally, he's not the only person that has expressed concerns with the Mueller investigation.
