"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday knocked longtime Trump ally Roger Stone for boasting in an email that he had dinner with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during the 2016 presidential campaign.

During an interview with Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, Kilmeade asked what he made of a newly leaked email showing that Stone had bragged to former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg in August 2016 that he "dined with Julian Assange last night," despite the fact that Stone has insisted for the past two years that he has never met with Assange.

Napolitano tried to politely suggest that we shouldn't take Stone's boast at face value because Stone is a notorious liar.

"If you know Roger, you know that, sometimes like the president, he doesn't always use an economy of words," he said. "But he means well."

"He gets himself in trouble," Kilmeade fumed. "[He gets] the president in trouble!"

Earlier in the segment, Napolitano also shot down suggestions made by host Steve Doocy that the Mueller probe was taking too long by noting that these kinds of investigations are incredibly complex and take a lot of time to do properly.
