Fox & Friends Can’t Handle Report That Trump Is The ‘Subject’ Or ‘Target’ Of Criminal Investigation — Watch:

While discussing a new Washington Post report claiming that President Donald Trump is a “subject” — but not a “target” — in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt came to the conclusion that this meant the president “hasn’t committed a crime.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade pointed out that Mueller’s team this week told Trump’s legal team that the president is not a target of a criminal investigation, although he is being investigated. Earhardt then made a leap in logic to say this must mean Trump is innocent of any wrongdoing.

“He is being investigated, but not a criminal target,” she said. “Which, I guess means, hasn’t committed a crime.”

Earhart, of course, is wrong. As former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) explained on Fox News Wednesday morning, whether the president is a “target” or a “subject” in the probe is largely a semantic distinction, and the president shouldn’t at all feel that he’s out of legal jeopardy because of this.

“The president is still highly involved,” Chaffetz said. “Whether he uses the word ‘target’ or not, he is not in the clear. I think Paul Manafort is in deep, deep trouble. I think they are going to continue to look at his patterns and his background and go after him.”
