The Five co-hosts Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld enthusiastically explained how the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials will “boomerang” and ensnare Democrats instead of Republicans. They made the comments Friday on Fox News.
“You look at the actual information that was out there that damaged her the most,” explained guest host Lisa Boothe, “and was the biggest indictment of her and her character, was self-inflicted wounds. It was the setting up a private email server, the deleting of tens of thousands of emails with bleachbit, the Clinton Foundation and the quid pro quo.”
“So literally everything that damaged her candidacy outside of her just being a generally unlikeable person, was all self-inflicted,” she concluded.
“And it always boomerangs back on the Democrats,” Watters said to Gutfeld, “we’ve seen the Susan Rice boomerang, we’ve seen the Comey memos boomerang, and it looks like, this has boomeranged. Who let this person into the country?”
Watters was referring to the burgeoning conspiracy theory surrounding the entrance of the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskkaya into the country after her visa had expired. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has asked for answers about the matter from the State Department.
“Well this is why,” responded Gutfeld, “you know what the boomerang will result in? A full accounting under oath of all of Podesta’s meetings as well.”
“Yes!” exclaimed Watters.
“If you’re gonna do this all those meetings with operatives and the operatives that promised dirt on Trump including this fake dossier from a Brit – where did that come from?” Gutfeld continued.
“These are all important questions that, and again I go back to a very simple fact,” he concluded. “Anybody would take this meeting if they promised you dirt and Podesta, with his little cut-out firms, I would not be surprised.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the allegations of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign has expanded to included Donald Trump Jr.’s emails about his June 2016 meeting with Russians. The State Department has indicated that they’re investigating whether Hillary Clinton and her associates should continue to have security clearances, but no other investigation has been revealed otherwise.
John Podesta, Clinton’s former campaign manager, testified before the House Intelligence Committee in June.
