Maria Bartiromo Calls on Mueller to Investigate Hillary Clinton For Russian Collusion

More and more, it is becoming difficult for Fox Business viewers to distinguish between Mornings With Maria and Lou Dobbs Tonight.

Thursday morning, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo spoke with former House Speaker and current Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich. Much of the conversation was focused on what the two clearly deem to be the real Russian collusion — collusion with Hillary Clinton.

“The Clintons have always been corrupt,” Gingrich said. “They have always gotten away with it. They remain corrupt. While they were being corrupt…the establishment covered for them. Then all of a sudden, the establishment was faced with this horrifying possibility Donald J. Trump could become president. ‘If Donald J. Trump becomes president, everything we’ve done illegal is going to become public.’… And so if you think about it as a novel, or as a movie, it all begins to make sense.”

“Robert Mueller’s initial mandate was looking for collusion,” Bartiromo said, later in the conversation. “How do you ignore the fact that Hillary Clinton worked with Russians, paid for a dossier. That dossier was used to get a FISA warrant to wiretap an American citizen. There’s the collusion! Hillary Clinton and the Russians!”

“How is Robert Mueller not including that in his investigation?!” she exclaimed. “It’s just not feasible!”

“That’s why you have to see it as a novel,” Gingrich said.

“Well, how does it end?!” Bartiromo interjected excitedly.

“Actually, America wins,” the former House Speaker replied — saying the Constitution will “drive us to the truth.”

Bartiromo, of course, was referring to the Clinton campaign’s financing of a dossier prepared by former British Intelligence official Christopher Steele — who previously worked in Russia and used sources from the country to compile his report.

Bartiromo’s claim that Clinton “worked with the Russians” is absurdly wrong, and has been debunked thoroughly.
