CNN's Erin Burnett corners informal Trump legal adviser as she spews nonsense about Mueller's focus on Russia collusion

Immediately after a former Trump campaign aide revealed the laser-sharp focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion, a lawyer that was once announced as a member of Donald Trump's Russia legal team dismissed that revelation — only to be slammed by CNN host Erin Burnett in response.

After blowing past former Trump aide Michael Caputo's bombshell debrief of his interview with Mueller, onetime Sean Hannity lawyer Victoria Toensing made a long-winded and non-verified claim about the FBI surveilling people who go to Russia "for any reason," including someone who went "on [sic] a humanitarian reason."

"I tell you, I have a different look than what was just reported," the attorney told Burnett, implying that Mueller's investigation is off-base or even phony, as evidenced by her use of air quotes when speaking the words "Russia collusion."

Burnett responded to Toensing by quoting Caputo's interview in which he said Mueller and his team "know more about the Trump campaign than anyone who ever worked there" — but had to do so three times before the attorney would actually respond to the news.

"I don't know that he knows what he's talking about," Toensing said. When Burnett asked her about it once more, she cryptically said "there's a time to sow and there's a time to harvest."
