A Fox News guest on Tuesday absolutely roasted the network’s attempts to attack the FBI as a way to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
During a segment on FBI agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages that he sent during the 2016 presidential election campaign, guest Ben Kissel mocked the notion that the FBI is filled with wild-eyed left wingers who are chomping at the bit to take down a Republican president.
“I think this is making a mountain out of a molehill here,” Kissel said. “There is no liberal witch hunt going on with the FBI in an attempt to get Donald Trump. The FBI isn’t some hippie organization filled with people… wearing Birkenstocks and going to Flaming Lips concerts. They’re serious individuals and they’re able to hold personal opinions, and it does not necessarily impact their professional life.”
Fellow panelist Lawrence Jones, however, disagreed with Kissel’s take and said that Stzrok’s text messages showed that the entire Mueller investigation has been compromised. Kissel again laughed off this assertion.
“His deputy Attorney General [Rod] Rosenstein appointed Mueller!” Kissel said. “It wasn’t as if Mueller was chomping at the bit to have the investigation go down.”

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money
The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.
New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.
Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
