MARK LEVIN: Let me ask you a question. Did the president withhold a single dollar from this investigation? Did the president stop any aspect of this investigation, which went worldwide and went into everything you can possibly think of? Was the FBI thwarted in any respect? No. The only person who was thwarted was [former FBI Director James] Comey because he was a bad cop. Firing Comey, absolute constitutional right by the president of the United States, and the president was smart. He said, "Do you know what, Mr. Prosecutor? You don't get to ask me about presidential authority." You know why? Not because the president wanted to protect himself. He had to protect the office of the presidency. It's called separation of powers. 

Do you know whose acted most responsibly throughout this whole thing and yet it is trashed every day? The president of the United States. He didn't take a single governmental action to stop the FBI and the Department of Justice, despite the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice were out to stop him. This is the great scandal in American history and I mean it. And it's mediagate because the media threw in. You couldn't watch CNN, MSNBC, read The New York TimesThe Washington Post. Quite frankly, thank goodness for Fox, fair and balanced. Your morning prime time shows, your nighttime prime time shows with opinion on both sides. If it wasn't for all of that, we'd only have one way in this country with the media, but once again, the media threw in with the government, the media threw in with the Hillary Clinton campaign.
