Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Thursday explained to his audience how voters were “deceived” by Attorney General Bill Barr’s claims about what was included in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Smith noted the discrepancy between whether Barr views his job as working for the American people or being the personal attorney for President Donald Trump.
“If the goal is to control the narrative though — though the attorney general is supposed to work for the people, not the president — in this case if you’re the president and the attempt is to control the narrative, in other words to tell people, here’s what it’s going to say before it gets out there, all 448 pages, if I’m the president, I’m happy with what William Barr did this morning,” he explained.
“But if I’m one seeking the truth about what is in this report, in many cases we were deceived,” he noted.
“Specifically, he said that the president fully cooperated, where the president was openly trying to keep people from cooperating and openly trying to keep his own testimony from them,” Smith reported. “That is not full cooperation by anyone’s definition.”

Pelosi blasts Trump as ‘not a well person’ and wonders if GOP is motivated by a ‘manhood thing’: report
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) briefed members of the Democratic Caucus on Saturday about the state of negotiations over the next coronavirus stimulus bill.
Luke Broadwater, a congressional correspondent for The New York Times, posted a thread about the call on Twitter, citing "sources on call."
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) was also on the call, and reportedly blasted White House chief of staff Mark Meadows for the failure to reach a deal.
“Meadows, when John Boehner and Paul Ryan was Speaker, impeded every agreement they tried to make with us on must-pass legislation," Hoyer reported said.
Democratic pressure on intel agencies exposed a motherlode of information on foreign meddling helping Trump: report
On Saturday, Politico reported that congressional Democrats believe their pressure campaign on the intelligence community was crucial to exposing Russia's newest plot to interfere with U.S. elections on behalf of President Donald Trump.
"For weeks, top Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate have been blaring warnings and demanding briefings and public disclosures from the intelligence community, shrugging off Republican charges that they’re politicizing intelligence," reported Andrew Desiderio and Kyle Cheney. "And Democrats can now point to evidence that their pressure campaign might be working. On Friday, the Trump administration’s counterintelligence chief publicly confirmed that Russia is attempting to harm Joe Biden’s candidacy in 2020. The official, William Evanina, even singled out a pro-Russia Ukrainian, Andrii Derkach, as a key participant in the Kremlin’s new effort."
