As the Russia investigation moves closer to the White House, Fox News is delivering a synchronized display of the same talking points —all designed to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller and help Donald Trump. These Fox News personalities truly seem more outraged at Mueller than at the Russian government for attacking our democracy!
Of course, that’s the kind of cover-up you expect from right-wing nuts like Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, or the three airheads on Fox And Friends. But these nitwits are not the only ones engaged in a blatant attempt to undermine the Russia probe.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Friday that President Trump was not wrong to question whether FBI officials are biased against him.
“It’s not crazy for President Trump to be concerned by the bias that is being shown by some members of the FBI at the top levels,” Wallace said on Fox News’ “Shepard Smith Reporting.”
“If I was being investigated and I found out that people that were investigating me were sending tweets back and forth saying what I terrible I was … there may well be that there was something there,” Wallace said.
The text messages were exchanged between two FBI officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, during the 2016 race. Strzok was removed from Mueller’s probe in July after the Justice Department became aware of the messages, and Page left Mueller’s team earlier in the year.
Trump and his allies at Fox have seized in the publication of the texts to attack the FBI and the credibility of Mueller’s investigation, which is looking at whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to help swing the election.
