Shep Smith refuses to fall for GOP whitewash on Mueller report: ‘They want us to think this is over — it is not’

Fox News host Shepard Smith noted on Thursday that Republicans have failed to divert attention away from special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference.

On Thursday morning, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee called for Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to step down because Mueller’s report had not accused the president of a crime.

Smith pointed out that Attorney General William Barr has only provided Congress with a four-page summary of the report, which is said to be more than 300 pages.

“They want us to think this is over. It is not,” the Fox News host said. “We still have not seen the Mueller report and have only a four-page summary from the attorney general.”

During the House Judiciary Committee testimony of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the Russia investigation, Lewandowski's attorney frantically crashed the witness table and demanded that Congress stop asking questions of his client.

"I understand that," said Lewandowski's attorney. "I will leave after I register a formal protest based upon the debate that I heard. These seem to be unauthorized questions and I know you choose your words carefully—"

Congressman blasts ‘tough guy’ Lewandowski for blowing off hearing: He wants to ‘launch his senatorial campaign’

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," House Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) laid into President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski for his aggressive behavior before the House Judiciary Committee.

"As you know, Democrats want to call other witnesses for this impeachment investigation," said anchor Wolf Blitzer. "Do you worry, though, that Lewandowski set the precedent for not cooperating?"

"Well, Lewandowski portrayed himself as a tough guy," said Jeffries. "He's a likely candidate for a Senate seat in New Hampshire. And he was there probably to try to launch his senatorial campaign, not to take seriously his responsibility as a witness to participate in this hearing on behalf of the effort to find the truth for the American people. But that is okay. Because the American people can judge Lewandowski based on what they've seen from today and in terms of whether he was participating in a cover-up or participating in effort to reveal information to the American people."

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) had a freakout when a Democratic member of Congress dared to call out the president's obstructions of justice during the hearing with Corey Lewandowski Tuesday. During her questioning, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) drew conclusions outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller's report, but Collins proclaimed it was against the rules.

"Point of order, Mr. Chairman," Collins interrupted her opening statement.

"The gentleman will state his point of order," Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said.

"I would just ask, is the gentle lady accusing the president of a crime?" Collins asked.
