The hosts of “Fox & Friends” giggled and gloated over Corey Lewandowski’s contentious appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager claimed executive privilege over testimony he gave before special counsel Robert Mueller, admitted he had lied in TV appearances and cracked jokes during five hours of testimony — and the Fox News hosts were delighted.
“He gave as good as he got,” said co-host Steve Doocy.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt was laughing so hard she could barely speak.
“She said the truth shall set you free,” Earhardt said, quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) through guffaws. “‘Answer the question,’ there was no question.”
Co-host Brian Kilmeade opened the segment by declaring Lewandowski the winner of the hearing that opened what could become an impeachment inquiry.
“In the most predictable sense of combat you could possibly imagine,” Kilmeade said, “nothing was done and Democrats are left beyond embarrassed.”

Michael Flynn’s attorney claims ‘executive privilege’ — then demands judge recuse himself
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's lawyers are trying a new tactic to try and get rid of the judge who accepted the guilty plea last year and began the sentencing phase of the trial.
The moment came after Flynn's lawyer, Sidney Powell revealed that she has spoken to the president about Flynn's case, but not before she tried to invoke executive privilege without being an executive, former Army prosecutor Glenn Kirschner tweeted. Powell never had a problem with Judge Sullivan until today. She did, however, write a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr telling him to tell the prosecutors to withdraw the charges of Flynn.
Mueller prosecutor explains why special counsel was scared of being fired by Trump for investigating finances
In an interview with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, former special counsel prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said that there are a lot of rules and problems that special counsel Robert Mueller's team faced that Americans were unaware of in the Russia investigation.
"I think the first thing that people need to understand is, for 22 months we were investigating somebody who had an unusual power, and that is he had the power to fire us," Weissmann explained. "I've prosecuted mobsters and Enron executives, and those can be tough cases. But the people you're looking at don't have that power to pull the plug on your investigation."
Trump campaign official buried in mockery for saying Biden is ‘hiding’ something by not agreeing to ear inspection
President Donald Trump's campaign on Tuesday demanded that Democratic rival Joe Biden agree to undergo a thorough ear inspection ahead of the first 2020 presidential debate to ensure that he has not been equipped with any special communications devices.
The Biden campaign has predictably laughed off the Trump campaign's demand -- but that hasn't stopped Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller from pressing the issue.
