LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Carrie one more question. We didn't get to it on Fox because I don't want this to be in any way about me. But apparently you did uncover something about my role in the, sort of related, to the judicial process up -- leading up to 2016. What did you uncover?
CARRIE SEVERINO (GUEST): Yeah that was really another fun thing we learned. We were talking about the list -- and I think it's important to understand where we are now to understand this whole process, and how important that list was in Donald Trump's campaign. One of the things that we learned, Laura, was how you were instrumental in helping him crytallize that list, not just as an advisory rule, but as this is the group I'm choosing from. So after he put out the first list, and Ted Cruz and a lot of others were critical saying, well that's nice to say I'll choose someone like these people, but you need to say this is going to be the only list so you actually locked are down. And we learned that you were helpful in brokering that process, which was really the key thing along with adding Mike Lee to that list, that helped Trump, or helped Cruz finally come to the conclusion that he wanted to fully support Trump. And I think for a lot of other Americans as well.
