Fox News anchor Bret Baier unraveled the accusations from Democrats against U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr and concluded that there's "not a lot there there."
Baier was on the "Daily Briefing" with Dana Perino on Tuesday when he made the comments.
"What is the supposed impropriety that Democrats are suggesting of the president talking to the Australians about the investigation that Bill Barr is conducting about 2016 and the whole origins of that whole investigation," Perino asked. "What is he being accused of doing that is wrong?"
"Well, he's being accused of the same thing that they say happened in the Ukraine phone call minus what they say is the implied quid pro quo with the holding back of funding," Baier explained.
"Saying pressuring foreign leaders for information to affect an election, however, it's the last election, and he's talked about this publicly," he continued.
"John referenced that May 24th appearance on the South Lawn with reporters in which he said he hoped the attorney general would look at all kinds of documents and information from Ukraine, from Italy, from Australia," Baier said.
"He said all this publicly, and the attorney general with the special prosecutor, the special investigator John Durham has been tasked with getting to the bottom of the beginning of the Trump probe and what happened," he added.
"So it seems like that allegation about talking about world leaders on that front, that there's not a lot there there," he concluded.
