“I think what they are looking at is a way to find out why Hillary Clinton was not elected,” he told Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner.

“She was not elected because of what the Russians did; she was not elected because of what she said,” referring to her statement that the United States must change its religious beliefs.

Owens also reiterated an announcement he made the day before at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

“We should respect the law,” he said. “Give Mr. Trump a chance.”

Owens said that although he has not had a chance to sit down with Congressman Lewis and others, he would welcome it.
