3:30 PM ET – Ainsley Earhardt, Host of the hit morning show Fox and Friends, is on the road promoting her new book, The Light Within Me, and her book signings tomorrow and Saturday.

4:05 PM ET – Sara Carter, Fox News Contributor and Investigative Reporter, and David Schoen, Civil Liberties Attorney, and Gregg Jarrett, Fox News Legal Analyst, break down what to expect from the media on the latest round of text messages released between disgraced FBI agents, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.

President Trump questioned both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray over why two FBI officials were still at their jobs after it was revealed they sent text messages critical of the president during the campaign.

Vox reported Friday that Trump earlier this year asked his attorney general and FBI director why agent Peter Strzok and counsel Lisa Page were still employed by the bureau. In a meeting alone with Sessions, Trump reportedly pushed for their dismissal, Vox reported.

Texts between Strzok and Page from 2016 were revealed last December, months after the two were removed from the team of investigators under special counsel Robert Mueller. (h/t The Hill)

5:05 PM – Jonathan Gilliam, author of the newly released book, Sheep No More, and Danielle McLaughlin, an Attorney & Constitutional Expert who co-wrote The Federalist Society: How Conservatives took the Law Back from Liberals, debate the news of the day. Today they address the Cosby verdict:

In a dramatic scene, a Montgomery County jury of seven men and five women returned guilty verdicts today on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for Cosby’s January 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand. Constand, a former Temple University employee, lost consciousness after Cosby gave her three blue pills and a sip of wine. She came to with Cosby digitally penetrating and groping her and forcing her hand on his penis.

The jurors spent nearly 15 hours over two days deciding the verdict after being charged Monday morning.

5:30 PM – ET Chairman Mike Conaway, of the House Agricultural Committee out of Texas, is here to bring us up to speed on the news regarding the Farm Bill and the SNAP welfare program.

The new farm bill, recently unveiled by Representative Mike Conaway, contains a package of provisions designed to improve the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The reforms do not cut the program, but they strengthen work requirements and shift more funds toward job training. The authors aim to tap into the strength of the current job market and to strengthen the safety net as a result. (H/T National Review)
