BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Real quick, what happened with Paul Manafort yesterday? They found that his deal blew up because he wasn't being candid with the -- with the Mueller investigation?
ANDREW NAPOLITANO (FOX NEWS SENIOR JUDICIAL ANALYST): Here's what they did with Paul Manafort, I've never heard of this before: They had him testify before the same grand jury that indicted him, and then a federal judge found that he lied to that grand jury. This tells me --
KILMEADE: Not on all counts, though, right?
NAPOLITANO: No, five alleged lies, she found that he committed three. This tells me, A, he's exposed to more than 20 years in jail. That is so much jail time, he might very well be a candidate for a pardon --
KILMEADE: He's 69.
NAPOLITANO: And the public might accept the pardon. It also tells me, B, Mueller is still on the hunt.
