"Picture this," Kilmeade said. "You are wrongly accused, you know you didn't collude with Russia, which is revealed in the first part, and then you have 19 lawyers, all of which are on the record hating you, and very talented and loaded to bear."
"You have an endless budget, an open wallet to investigate you," he continued.

What does Trump do? He fights you fights every step of the way, and the biggest reporter, the biggest anchor, the smallest outlet -- if you say something wrong he will call you out, and that's what this is."
