John Kelly, the White House Chief of Staff, told Laura Ingraham on Monday night that he was too busy to “watch very much in the TV” about the days indictments and guilty pleas by the former Donald Trump campaign figures in Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian election meddling.
Laura, who has been debuting her Fox News Channel 10 PM ET program The Ingraham Angle, asked John about the day’s news on the indictments of the Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort, his associate Rick Gates, and “another minor aide” in the Trump administration, (also known as foreign relations adviser George Papadopoulos).

John answered, inaccurately;
All of the activities, as I understand it, that they were indicted for was long before they ever met Donald Trump or, or had an association with the campaign,
John wasn’t backing down, saying she did more talking before the ceremony and at the reception afterward. He insisted;
It was a package deal. I don’t want to get into it.
Additionally, Laura took John back to his comments about Frederica Wilson after she claimed with outrage to have heard President telling La David Johnson's widow her husband knew what he was signing up for but that it hurt anyway.

When Laura asked him if he feels like he has something to apologize for, John replied;
No. Never. I’ll apologize if I need to. But for something like that, absolutely not. I stand by my comments.
Last month, after the announcement that FNC announced had parted ways with Eric Bolling, the network announced Sean Hannity was moving from 10 PM to 9, to take on MSNBC’s rating powerhouse Rachel Maddow. Afterwards, Laura got the 10 PM timeslot.
