Fox News: ‘We’re going to keep digging’ into Trump’s Russia ties
Fox News host Shepard Smith spoke on Sunday with Sean Hannity, who questioned whether the media had fully explored the links between Trump and Russian officials.
Smith, who hosts Hannity’s “The Five” on Fox News, said the media is focusing on the “bigger picture” of Trump’s ties to Russia.
Smith said he and Hannity discussed a recent interview Trump had with Russia Today, the state-owned Russian news outlet.
“I asked him, ‘Do you believe in the idea of the Kremlin and Putin and Putin is going to bring democracy to this country?'”
“He said ‘Yes,’ ” Smith continued.
“And he said, ‘And then what?’
I’ve got no choice.’ “
Asked by Hannity whether that meant the media was still digging, Smith replied: ‘Yes, we’re going ’round the clock.
