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.

It was revealed Tuesday that Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared polling data with a Russian operative, according to a poorly redacted legal filing by his attorneys.

“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.”
