Jon Karl Stuns ‘The View’ With Truth-Bomb About Collusion

By

Today ABC’s Jon Carl made a stunning admission, stunning at least for the media, that there is zero evidence of President Trump or anyone in his campaign colluding with the Russians.

“So much has already been there, but on the central question of did Donald Trump or anybody in his campaign coordinator collude with the Russians in their effort to meddle in the 2016 campaign, we have seen zero evidence of that –“

Watch the whole thing:

Partial transcript:

HUNTSMAN: “So the missing link for me is how do you go from hearing people on TV saying, oh, we’ve known he’s been an agent the whole time to literally the FBI then launching an investigation into a sitting president looking into whether or not he’s an agent for the Russians, how much evidence do you need for that, and then where does Mueller fit into all of this?”

KARL: “Again, this is FBI director, the acting FBI director at the time, Andrew McCabe. I think what it shows and we’ve seen through some of the text messages of some of the others involved in this decision including Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, these were people that –“

HUNTSMAN: “Hated him.”

KARL: “Deeply detested Donald Trump and now they’re running the FBI and they’re able to open this counter intelligence investigation and they, you know, they believe that they had solid reason.”

HUNTSMAN: “Shouldn’t that make us all skeptical then of this?”

KARL: “I think there are reasons to be skeptical but I think the biggest one is what happened afterwards and there is no indication that Robert Mueller picked up any of this. And here’s a very important point. We are now just, I believe, weeks away from getting a final report from Robert Mueller, and there is so much anticipation, so much speculation about what he is going to show. He’s been looking into this whole range of issues. I am led to believe by people who have interacted with the special counsel that we should be prepared for him to release a report that is anti-climactic. Look, he’s already done a lot. He’s already gotten more than 30 indictments, the president’s inner circle, his campaign chairman convicted, his national security adviser indicted, his personal lawyer. So much has already been there, but on the central question of did Donald Trump or anybody in his campaign coordinator collude with the Russians in their effort to meddle in the 2016 campaign, we have seen zero evidence of that –“

BEHAR: “What about Manafort?”

KARL: “Well, look, Manafort has been indicted because of his personal corruption, what he has done, and we know there was this revelation that he gave polling data but there’s no indication that manafort either knew of or helped the Russians in their efforts to hack into the DNC e-mails, John Podesta’s e-mails or that massive Internet campaign to undermine basically the public discourse in this country.”
