Fox News on Wednesday reacted to the humiliating defeat of Donald Trump’s choice Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore by once again attacking the validity of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.
Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein spoke before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, defending Mueller’s investigation against a wave of House Republicans who appeared to be laying the groundwork for Trump to fire Mueller.
Discussing that testimony, Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett told host Sean Hannity why the investigation—defended by Rosenstein—is “all manufactured” by the FBI.
“It was always a myth that collusion in a political campaign is a crime,” Jarrett insisted. “It’s not. And there was never a scintilla of evidence that President Trump engaged in some collaboration with the Russians.”
“So, this was all manufactured,” he continued. “It was invented by the FBI and the Department of Justice. And now we know why — because they hated Trump, they loved Hillary Clinton, they were trying to elect her and they were trying to defeat him. And when it didn’t work, they went about to Plan B.”
“Manufactured by the deep state,” Hannity offered.
