BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): On these, what Adam Schiff said yesterday, just to -- we don't have much time, but he said yesterday he's just going to go back into President Trump's business career to look for anything that might affect any decisions he make (sic) as president. Since when? This is not Benghazi or Whitewater. Those are incidents that they wanted to investigate. They’re having just a wide swath look at a 50 year business career. How is that acceptable?
DAN BONGINO (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, it's acceptable to Adam Schiff because he is the sleaziest member of Congress. He's a discredited, third-rate conspiracy theorist who has absolutely zero credibility, and the difference between the investigations under President Obama is Benghazi had evidence. There were four body bags. The IRS actually admitted to targeting citizens. The targeting of [former Fox News correspondent] James Rosen and others actually happened, we have the legal documents. Adam Schiff is inventing crimes. He has no evidence of collusion --
KILMEADE: Not acceptable.
BONGINO: No evidence of financial -- nothing. He's making this up because he's sleazy, that's what Adam Schiff does.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (COH-HOST): He vows to investigate as long as it takes.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Elections have consequences, they would say, and he's the chairman now.
BONGINO: Unfortunate ones.
