Bill O'Reilly told Newsmax TV there will soon be a lot of "pain inflicted" on the FBI.
"I hear that from very credible sources," he said Thursday, noting the agency "did indeed botch" the investigation into Russia and the Donald Trump campaign and the Hillary Clinton email probe.
O'Reilly did not offer any specifics.
Regarding the White House's reaction to the release of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller, O'Reilly said: "I think there's a sense of relief, but the Trump administration knows the Democrats in the House of Representatives are not going to stop, and that could work to Trump's advantage when he runs for president again, but it is an annoyance. It will keep the Trump Hate Media in business for a while.
"But I think overall, William Barr, the attorney general, did the president a favor, not a personal favor. It's not the way CNN or MSNBC are portraying it. That's not what happened. But Barr was very clear about what Mueller found out. So, if you are a person who cares about the news and facts, you got it. He laid it out very clearly."
And he added: "From the very beginning, I always said, because I know Trump so well, he's not capable of colluding with anyone. He's just not. It's not the way he thinks. He doesn't have the concentration span to collude."
