BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I know Hillary Clinton was a common theme last night. She's likely the opponent of whoever the nominee is. You had this line to talk about not only her foreign policy but her legal problems.

[BEGIN VIDEO]

JEB BUSH: Hillary Clinton would be a national security disaster. Think about it. She wants to continue down the path of Iran, Benghazi, the Russian reset, Dodd-Frank, all the things that have gone wrong in this country. She's under investigation with the FBI right now. If she gets elected, her first 100 days, instead of setting an agenda, she might be going back and forth between the White House and the courthouse. We need to stop that.

[END VIDEO]

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Funny line.

KILMEADE: So, you believe, Governor, that the problems are that bad and your sources say the indictment could be coming?

BUSH: I don't -- I only get my news from Fox & Friends, so that's all I get. All I'm saying is that she's under investigation by the FBI. Just pause and think about that. That's not, that's a pretty uncommon thing for a presidential candidate. And each and every week it just seems like there's more information. Now there's, according to Fox again there's expanded investigation on the connection with the Clinton Foundation. This is a serious deal. So I'm, look, I want to win. I think the Republicans need to win. We need to unify. Hillary Clinton would be an unmitigated disaster for ideological purposes. But she also has this legal problem that would really undermine our country.
