On Tuesday, Fox News host Shep Smith ripped presidential son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner for diminishing the impact of Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election.
During the TIMES 100 summit, Kushner said that Mueller’s report was more harmful to America than Russia.
“President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser claimed the Russian investigation has been more damaging to the United States than Putin’s meddling in the 2016 election. Jared Kushner said he thought the whole thing was kind of nonsense,” Smith said.
Smith added, “Jared Kushner’s diminishment of Russian interference is deceptive. From the Mueller report we now know, Russians made contact with multiple members of the Trump campaign, including Jared Kushner and attempting to promote Russian objectives.”
Smith then broke down how Mueller’s report revealed the impact that Russia intelligence had on the election.
“They received campaign polling data from the Trump team and discussed business deals and policy goals and getting dirt on Hillary Clinton with the now president’s son and others. They conducted cyber espionage, stealing e-mails and distributing them to help candidate Trump and hurt Trump’s opponent,” he said.
“They sent Russian operatives in America in person to learn the landscape and sow division. The United States indicted 26 Russian nationals and three Russian companies and the Mueller report made crystal clear and all U.S. Intelligence agencies concur the Russians are still trying to interfere in our affairs and influence our elections,” he said.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.
Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.
"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."
John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police
John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.
It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."
While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."
Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent
The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.
The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.
Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
