During the October 28 edition of Fox News’ The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly and Republican Bob Goodlatte discussed the supposed need for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton, despite a complete lack of evidence.

A special prosecutor, remember, is appointed by the Attorney General of the United States.
