Spicer: More collusion between CNN and Hillary than Trump and Russia

Press Secretary Sean Spicer laid a mic drop worthy burn on CNN during Thursday's White House press briefing.

Earlier, CNN reported that Trump associates may indeed have had communications with the Russians during the 2016 elections that led to damaging information about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign. When asked about it by a reporter in the press pool, Spicer was actually ready for the subject to be brought up.

"So let's actually look at what CNN reported," Spicer began. "They reported that anonymous U.S. officials have told them that information indicates that association of the campaign, and suspected operatives coordinated, which they admit is not conclusive of anything and which is bordering collusion. The last line of  it said, ‘The FBI cannot yet prove that collusion took place.'”

"I think there's more — probably more — evidence that CNN colluded with the Clinton campaign to give her debate questions than the Trump campaign gave any kind of collusion [with the Russians]."

Spicer went on to remind the reporters that in the CNN report, it says that "the FBI cannot yet prove that collusion took place."
