“This is an effort to undermine the credibility of Robert Mueller, who for many years, Republicans and Democrats have thought very highly of,” commentator Marie Harf said. “As Americans, I said this many times, and if you like a broken record, but we should want to get to the bottom of Russian interference in her 2016 election. If there’s anybody working with them or helping them.”
She went on to say that it is clear Russia offered to help and the campaign met with people about help.
“People lied about that to the FBI,” she continued. “I do not know where this investigation is going, but you are going to see as it gets serious, more attempts on the part of [Donald] Trump supporters to muddy the water chemic distract from that, and call for a special counsel, second one are exactly that.”
Harris Faulkner tried to claim that the Trump dossier was “equally” questionable as the Russia investigation. Harf wasn’t having it. The further the investigation continues, the more the dossier has been proven rather than disproven. Another commentator tried to claim that Mueller is being paid by the government and therefore is somehow unethical.
“There is no evidence that he has done anything inappropriate,” Harf shot back. She went on to say that to put other questions on the same level as collusion with a foreign entity that invaded the United States and attempted to impact an election.
The other panelists alleged that there was no evidence that Russia involved themselves in the election. Both Harf and host Juan Williams exclaimed “No evidence!?”
The discussion devolved into a shouting match from there.
