Dem lawmaker thanks Fox's Shep Smith 'for telling the truth' about Trump

Fox News host Shepard Smith couldn't contain his frustration while reporting Friday on the latest details surrounding Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer previous year. Smith ran through the week's revelations, pointing to the meeting President Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., set up with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the presidential election and the report that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, failed to initially note more than 100 foreign contacts on his disclosure form.

At one point Smith unleashes on Trump, literally leaving Wallace speechless.

And on Friday's "Fox News Specialists", panelist Eric Bolling said Russian Federation may have been colluding with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, not Trump Jr., to get information on then-presidential rival Trump.

Shep Smith blew up while talking with Chris Wallace on Fox News, and took aim at Fox News viewers who still think that the scandal is made up. Wallace opined: If you're a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned. It is the official safe space for White House surrogates, like Kellyanne Conway, when they want to claim that the rest of the media's "Russia obsession" is unwarranted.

My grandmother used to say, "When first we practice to - Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive".

"The deception, Chris, is mind boggling", he said. At night Sean Hannity wraps things up by serving as Trump's prosecutor, he rips apart any politician, pundit or newsmaker who dares say anything critical about the president. "And one day they are going to realize we are not". "There's a lot of truth to everything that you've said", a stunned-sounding Wallace replies.
