Fox News’ Shep Smith called out Donald Trump on Thursday after the president accused former special counsel Robert Mueller “conflicted” in an attempt to clear his name of any wrongdoing.
Trump attempted to make Mueller seem questionable by claiming that he once quit his membership at a Trump-branded golf club.
Trump tried to make Mueller seem biased against him, but Smith quickly shut him down.
“There’s no evidence that this story is true,” Smith explained. “In fact, Steve Bannon is quoted in the Mueller report about that very day saying Robert Mueller was to give perspective to the president on the FBI and the White House considered beseeching him to become director, but decided not to.”
Even though Trump blatantly lied about Mueller being “conflicted,” Smith said that it’s nothing we haven’t seen from the president before.
“The president attacking the investigator,” Smith said. “True to pattern.”
