Fox’s Bob Beckel: Don Lemon’s ‘Exactly Right’ on Susan Rice, ‘This Is a Diversion’

Fox’s The Five today discussed the media’s coverage of Susan Rice allegedly unmasking the names of Trump team members. Rice responded to the allegation on MSNBC earlier today, saying, “I leaked nothing to nobody and never have and never would.”

In particular, they highlighted CNN’s Don Lemon saying last night that he won’t “aid and abet” anyone trying to push this “diversion.”

Eric Bolling said that while Lemon is a friend, he’s wrong about this. Bob Beckel, however, agreed with Lemon and said he’s “exactly right, this is a diversion.” He went after the White House for pushing this and even said that Sean Spicer is a “liar.”

Beckel clashed with his co-hosts over this, with Greg Gutfeld saying that there’s a team sports aspect where people are essentially arguing that only the thing they care about matters instead of accepting that both this and Russian interference are worth investigating.

Beckel took issue with the idea that both are equally bad.
