While critics say President Donald Trump “manufactured” a crisis at the border, two personalities on Fox News say there is a crisis unfolding in Washington D.C.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Shep Smith and judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano agreed that Trump’s campaign appears to have colluded with Russia.
“This shows that Bob Mueller can demonstrate to a court without the testimony of Paul Manafort that the campaign had a connection to Russian intelligence and the connection involved information going from the campaign to the Russians,” Napolitano said. “The question is, was this in return for a promise of something from the Russians, and did the candidate, now the president, know about it?”
“Collusion isn’t a crime, but this would be considered collusion?” Smith asked.
“The crime is the conspiracy, the agreement. Collusion is a nonlegal term,” Napolitano said.
“I know, but if there’s collusion, giving stuff to the Russians about polling data [would count],” Smith said.
“Yeah, that would probably fit into the category,” Napolitano responded. “This event, which has been outlined in these court papers, occurred during the campaign.”

WATCH: Alabama GOP official berates reporter about Sodom and Gomorrah after she questions his anti-LGBT rant
Republican Mobile County Treasurer Phil Benson defiantly told a reporter from a local news station to read the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah when she came to ask him about his recent anti-LGBT rant that he posted on Facebook.
The controversy surrounding Benson started when he reacted angrily to a story about a bakery getting sued for refusing to serve an LGBT wedding.
"Freaking queers have gotten too much sympathy," Benson wrote on Facebook in response to the story.
Local news station NBC 15 sent out reporter Andrea Ramey to question him about his remarks, and he tried to insist that she read Chapter 19 of Genesis, which details the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah over their tolerance of homosexuality.
Charitable giving drops after GOP tax ‘cut’: report
On Tuesday, the Washington Post reported that charitable giving dropped 1.7 percent last year, adjusted for inflation, even as the economy surged.
The likely culprit? The GOP tax law, according to a report from Giving USA.
Although corporate donations rose 2.9 percent and foundation gifts rose 4.7 percent in the previous year, charitable donations from individuals — which is where the bulk of actual charity takes place — dropped 3.4 percent, the first time this has happened since the financial crisis.
