Shep Smith: If Don Jr. Meeting Was No Big Deal, ‘Why All These Lies?’

Fox News’ Shepard Smith went off yet again on the Trump team today after reports came out about additional people who were in the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer.

There are reports today that up to eight people were in the meeting, including a man identified as a former Soviet counterintelligence officer.

Smith spoke with Chris Wallace today and first brought up Charles Krauthammer‘s new column titled “Bungled collusion is still collusion.”

Wallace reiterated what he said earlier today about the damaged credibility of the White House here, adding that “if you’re a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.”

Smith then mentioned the breaking news that Fox News can confirm there were at least up to 8 people in the room during that Trump Jr. meeting. And then he asked this:

“If there’s nothing there––and that’s what they tell us, there’s nothing to this, and nothing came of it… if all of that, why all these lies? Why is it lie after lie after lie?.. The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling. And there are still people out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not.”
