4:05PM ET – Sara Carter, Fox News Contributor and Investigative Journalist, saraacarter.com and Dan Bongino, Former Secret Service Agent & NYPD, Contributing Editor at Conservative Review, take a look back at just this week. We had breaking news on the DOJ’s investigation into the corrupt agents of the FBI, we had 5 months of missing text messages between Strzok, Page, and Comey which the FBI said were lost forever, only to find out that wasn’t true. Then a day later, the texts were found and now upon discovery show the corruption that we all assumed, and now have confirmed. Some of the new texts:

“Thought of the perfect person [FBI Director James Comey] can bounce this off of?” Strzok wrote in a March 18, 2016 text to Page. “Pat….You got to give me credit if we go with him….And delay briefing him on until I can get back and do it, Late next week or later.”

“We talked about him last night, not for this, but how great he is,” Page replied.

“I could work with him again….And damn we’d get sh*t DONE,” Strzok wrote.

Strzok noted that while Fitzgerald was a U.S. attorney in Chicago, Comey named him as special counsel to investigate the leak of the identity of CIA official Valerie Plame. Fitzgerald wound up charging and convicting Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, Lewis Libby, of false statements and obstruction of justice in the probe. President George W. Bush used his clemency powers to waive Libby’s prison sentence but declined to grant him an outright pardon.

5:05PM ET – Larry Kudlow, CNBC host, former Reagan administration economist and author of the new book JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret History of American Prosperity, is here to discuss the President’s speech about business in American and the growing economy that no one wants to give the President credit for:

“You hear a guy like Tim Cook, who is no Trump admirer, acknowledges part of his decision was a business decision and part of it was related not to politics, but changes in policy,” Kudlow said on business channel CNBC. “It is undeniable that in the last six months, business investment – whether it’s equipment or factories or whatever is picking up.”

Corporate America has kept an estimated $2.6 trillion in cash and liquid securities parked overseas to avoid being taxed a second time when the money is brought back to the U.S. But because of Trump’s plan, that money will be taxed at a 15.5 percent rate, less than the new 21 percent rate for U.S. corporate profits, when it is returned.
