Sharyl Attkisson: Trump Correct to Call Russian Probe a 'Witch Hunt'

Sharyl Attkisson: Trump Correct to Call Russian Probe a 'Witch Hunt' Read Transcript


And she says the President may be on to something.

Here's a clip from our interview.

President Trump says that this Russian probe

is a political witch hunt.

You have James Comey, who admitted to leaking documents

to spur on the special counsel.

And then the special counsel is Robert Mueller,

who's one of his friends.

And then Robert Mueller goes and hires friends of the Clinton's.

Is President Trump on to something?

Is this a political witch hunt?

To the extent it's been blown out

of what I think is the proportion of all reason,

the Russia investigation and the idea of collusion with Russia,

yes, he is on to something.

President Trump is correct when he

says that this is a witch hunt in some respect based

on the evidence to date and based on President Obama's

own Intel experts, who not only didn't see

any evidence of collusion between Donald Trump

and the Russians by their own account,

but also by the account of all public information, Democrats

and Republicans alike, who haven't seen the connection.

And yet, you've seen it dominate the news narrative.

I call it like the Brady Bunch Marsha,

Marsha, Marsha-- you just hear Russia, Russia,

Russia all the time.

And there have been wildly incorrect reports

from some formerly top well-respected news

outlets in the nation about all of this.

And in some cases, they haven't even

corrected or done mea culpas when what they report

has been found to be false.

It's not that the Russia question doesn't deserve

some investigation, but the coverage for it

is so wildly disproportionate to the evidence at large.

You know Jenna, that's a big deal that interview

that you did with her.

Because she's not just a respected reporter who

used to work for CBS and the mainstream networks

and all of that, she is a respected investigative

reporter.

Exactly.

That has some serious chops.

She didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday.

So for Sharyl Attkisson to say that,

confirming that what Donald Trump says

that this is a political witch hunt against him,

she's saying--

Yes.

Hold on.

She's saying, yes.

Yes.

I mean, she is.

She wasn't really hedging it much.

No.

And that's pretty powerful.
