Megyn Kelly left her guest completely flabbergasted on Friday during a discussion of the Department of Justice's investigations into journalists.
Chris Stirewalt, an online editor for Fox News, was talking about the allegations against Attorney General Eric Holder, who signed off on a search warrant for reporter James Rosen's emails, when Kelly interjected, "Have you ever caught somebody cheating on you?"
"No..." replied Stirewalt, who appeared surprised by the question.
"OK, I have, and I'm sure a lot of our viewers have. Not my husband of course," Kelly said. She went on make an analogy about Holder, saying, "And let me tell you what the person does when they're caught. They apologize! They tell you that they regret it. That they're sorry, and that they're not going to do it again. And that's what they do when they're caught, alright? But it tends to be that, did it the one time..."
Kelly said "the relationship ends when it's been discovered," and "the only way you could ever even consider going forward is a complete honest recitation of facts...and I don't know if we're there with Eric Holder."
Later, she made clear that she was not talking about her own husband Doug Brunt, saying, "My man is a good man!"
Holder has come under fire for the DOJ's investigations into the AP and Rosen, a reporter for Fox News. Though he recused himself from the agency's decision to seize the AP's phone records, he personally approved the decision to subpoena Rosen's phone records and vetted the search warrant for Rosen's emails.
