Appearing on Fox News panel show ‘Outnumbered,’ a close confidante of Donald Trump saw his attempt to dismiss the entire premise of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion in the president’s 2016 campaign go down in flames no sooner than it was out of his mouth.
Discussing Trump’s rant about the Justice Department indulging in “rigged witch hunt,” guest David Bossie said the genesis of the investigation was the result of “fruit of the poisonous tree.”
“This entire case is based on opposition research, ” Bossie insisted, without mentioning the Steele dossier. “Paid for the DNC, paid for by the Clinton campaign.”
“That’s not true,” Fox News regular Jessica Tarlov exclaimed over him.
“It is true,” he blustered as she shot back, “It is not.”
“I am absolutely not lying about this when you say it’s not true,” she patiently explained to him. “This started with George Papadopoulos because of a conversation he had with Australian diplomats.”
“That is how the ‘Russian witch hunt’ started, “she added with mocking air-quotes as a defeated Bossie looked on.
Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy then jumped in to change the subject by saying Trump could put all of the questions to rest by ordering all of the internal documents involved in the Justice Department case released.
Bossie had recently been taken off the air by Fox after he told a black Democrat that he was “out of his cotton-picking mind.”

Right-wing radio show ratings tank as host undermines Trump’s ‘promises made, promises kept’ re-election slogan
The fact Donald Trump's base sticks with him no matter what he does is negatively impacting a conservative radio host attempting to hold the president accountable for his campaign promises.
Michael Alan Weiner, who goes by the stage name Michael Savage, hosts the "Savage Nation" radio show.
The host once praised Trump as the "Winston Churchill of our time" has been criticizing the president recently, The New York Times reported Tuesday.
"Now Mr. Savage is an outlier once again, dismayed more each day as the budget deficit continues to swell, thousands of new migrants are apprehended at the border, and the wall Mr. Trump promised to erect and make Mexico pay for remains unbuilt," The Times explained.
LISTEN: Here’s the creepy broadcast at Trump’s rally telling supporters the right way to deal with protesters
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida.
Those who entered the venue were treated to a pleasant female voice booming out instructions to protestors — and a creepy warning.
"While we all have the rights to free speech, this is a private event paid for and hosted by Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., and you came to hear the president," said the voice. "To accommodate the right to free speech and peaceful assembly, while ensuring an orderly rally, we have provided a secure area outside the venue for all protesters, and we ask anyone wishing to demonstrate to please exit to that secure area."
Trump had two goals in ramping up pressure on Iran — and he’s failing at both: CNN
That being said, the president clearly believes he can bully Iran into unconditional submission to whatever the United States demands. And Iran is having none of it, escalating its own acts of maritime aggression and proclaiming they have missile technology capable of striking U.S. aircraft carriers.
