MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace surprisingly agreed with Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul's suggestion that Trump administration aides be subjected to lie-detector tests — but for the exact opposite reason.

Paul's idea was to make Trump officials take polygraph exams to find out who wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed that's dominated headlines this week.

"I think they should put everyone on a polygraph and ask them if they think Donald Trump is fit for the office of the president," Wallace said, causing her panelists to chuckle.

Panelist Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent who ran as an independent candidate for president in 2016, noted that "we already know the answer" to that question, but the host wasn't done.

"John Kelly, Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, let's hook them up to a polygraph," she continued.

"It's a serious offer," Wallace said. "If you're willing, any one of you, hook up to a polygraph, we'll put it on TV, you can have my hour, we'll do one a day."
