BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): There is a lot of fascinating things that came out of Sean [Hannity's] hour-long interview yesterday, phone call, with the president really talking for the first time at length about being exonerated in the Mueller summary, in the Mueller report, and the four pages we got. We're about to get hundreds more, we imagine in the next few weeks. But not only is the president going to be saying, you know, how tough it's been over the last two and a half years. Clearly he's getting on the offensive and talking about how this thing was actually launched. And when you turn around and see the people who were victims in this, and Carter Page, I believe, and George Papadopoulos and to a degree Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, you have to wonder how it all started to find out how they began to be surveilled and possibly set up. And that's what that FISA warrant would reveal if it is revealed.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Probably the most damage, though, was done to the presidency of Donald Trump. And because the FISA application has impacted everything he has done since then, and since he was elected, [Sen.] Rand Paul tweeted this out last night and we saw it and we immediately booked him. He tweeted, "Breaking: A senior level source tells me it was John Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the intelligence report. Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress as soon as possible." So that is the first name we have heard. Remember, it was the president on Capitol Hill a couple of days ago and he was asked how high up in the Obama west wing does this go, and he said, "I don't want to answer but I think you know the answer."
