While conversing with Chris Wallace on Friday, Fox News host Shepard Smith expressed his infuriation after reports surfaced disclosing new information regarding the June 2016 meeting between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
“The emails, well in fact, this was supposed to be,” Wallace stated, “and what the Trump folks took the meeting to accomplish was the Russian government trying to give information about Hillary Clinton as part of an effort to swing the election to Donald Trump. So, you know you’re exactly right, we’ve been told a variety of stories. We’ve gotten – and who knows if we’ve even gotten to the end of the story, we’ve only got to the end of the story with the emails.”
“I know that we haven’t,” Smith asserted, “I know that we haven’t because there’s news breaking at this moment, Chris.”
“Fox News can now confirm,” Smith remarked towards the viewing audience. “New, more, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, the lawyer from Russia, the interpreter, this new guy we found about today, and a mystery person. John Roberts confirms there was an eighth person in that meeting.”
“We don’t know there may have been more but there was an eighth,” he continued.
“Jared Kushner filled out his form, I think it’s an F-86,” Smith described, “saying who he had met with and what he’d done. Very important stuff, you can go to prison for messing it up, y’know, intentionally.”
“He went back and added one hundred names and places,” Smith added. “None of these people made it. They – we’re still not clean on this, Chris, if there’s nothing there, and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this, nothing came of it, there’s a nothing-burger, it wasn’t memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell ya about it because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it!”
“With a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower,” he mocked.
“If all of that, why all these lies?” Smith questioned. “Why is it lie after lie after lie? If you’re clean, come on clean! Y’know?”
“My grandmother used to say, ‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive,’” he stated in reference to Shakespeare.
“The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling!” he declared. “And there are still people out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not, and look around and go, where are we and why are we getting told all these lies.”
“You know, I don’t know what to say,” Wallace replied in disbelief. “I think there’s a lot of truth to everything that you’ve said.”
