The “crisis” at the border may be manufactured, but even the people at Fox News can see that the crisis in Washington D.C. is serious.
Fox News host Shep Smith and analyst Andrew Napolitano both agree that the Trump campaign did in fact collude with Russia. According to the latest filings, Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared polling date with a Russian operative.
Napolitano said “This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court without the testimony of Paul Manafort that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians […] The question is, was this in return for a promise of something from the Russians, and did the candidate, now the president, know about it?”
Smith asked “Collusion isn’t a crime, but this would be considered collusion?” To which Napolitano responded “The crime is the conspiracy, the agreement. Collusion is a nonlegal term.”
The conversation continued with Smith saying “I know, but if there’s collusion, giving stuff to the Russians about polling data [would count].” Napolitano agreed “Yeah, that would probably fit into the category […] This event, which has been outlined in these court papers, occurred during the campaign.”
