From the January 25 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

DAN BONGINO (FORMER NRATV HOST): Why would you hit his door at 6 o'clock in the morning to arrest him with the FBI and not allow him to turn himself in? Well, the answer, I think, is pretty obvious. We've seen this with Mueller before. Whenever there's some major revelation about the corruption involved in the initiation of this case, which happened last night on this network with a Catherine Herridge report, next thing you know, Mueller -- magically the next day, something happens. There seems to be, again here, a rush to get out in front of this story. 

...

ED HENRY (GUEST CO-HOST): You also wonder about Jerome Corsi and others who have been wrapped up in this. Again, if you did something wrong, you're going to be held accountable. But this started out as massive Russia collusion investigation, and now people are being bankrupted when there's no evidence that they actually colluded with the Russians. 

BONGINO: You know, I've said from the start, I believe this Mueller probe is a cover-up. I believe the Mueller probe, in and of itself, was initiated to cover up a lot of DOJ and FBI malfeasance, and I find it awfully odd that Mueller is an integral figure in all of this. This case just doesn't make any sense; we're supposedly investigating the biggest foreign collaborator, collusion scandal in United States political history, and yet still, to this day, two years later, despite millions in assets and skilled investigators, not a scintilla of evidence has been uncovered that this collusion actually happened? It just seems -- does the American public seem to find this odd? 

...

BONGINO: This investigation wouldn't have existed without a foreign spy producing a document that not one person has been able to verify. And now we have officials on the record saying the case wouldn't have existed without it. This is a stunning revelation. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Yeah, now lives have been turned upsidedown, he can't even afford to pay his bills, these attorney fees have got to be astronomical.

...

BONGINO: I think this is a Mueller witch hunt, and I think they should continue to hammer that. No collusion. There is no collusion.
