Jared Kushner and the whole White House gang for repeatedly lying about their contacts with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace are the two most prominent faces of relative normalcy at Fox headquarters, and not surprisingly, they're reacting to the Trump-Russia affair a little differently than most of their co-workers.

"It is still not, we're still not clean on this, Chris", Smith told Wallace.

He added, "I think this is the biggest problem here". Because there's news breaking at this moment, Chris. "Shepard Smith is a dim light in the vast darkness of hate at Fox News", tweeted another. "Very important stuff, you can go to prison for messing it up, you know, intentionally".

Smith went on to criticize Jared Kushner for failing to report the names of these individuals on his necessary clearance paperwork. None of these people made it ...

Trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign in February after it was revealed that he misled Vice President Pence about the nature of his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. If all of that, why all these lies? Smith asked. "If you clean, come on clean". "My grandmother used to say, 'Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive'". The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling.

Since then, the list of known participants in the meeting has grown to include a Russian-American lobbyist, an interpreter and another person who has not yet been identified. And there are still people out there who believe we're making it up.

"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? There's a lot of truth to everything that you've said", Wallace said.

Trump's closest aides and family members have told lie after lie after lie after lie. Lies that are calculated to fit in with a false narrative, and lies that are calculated to muddy the waters.
