Shep Smith explodes: Trump family's "deception" is "mind-boggling"

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith has had enough and didn't hide his frustration on Friday at the way President Donald Trump's administration hasn't been transparent about its ties to Russian Federation.

While discussing this new information, Wallace commented to Smith, "Who knows if we've gotten to the end of this story?" Noting that they've been told that nothing came out of the meeting, Wallace explained that these new reports show that the White House and those involved are not being forthcoming with these details until the media comes out with them.

Who was the "we" Smith was referring to?

"The deception is mind-boggling", he goes on, before issuing what could have been a warning to some of his coworkers: "There are still people out there who believe we're making it up, and one day they're gonna realize we're not, and look around and go, 'Where are we?"

"You know, I don't know what to say".

The president often retweets clips from Fox News programming, particularly Fox & Friends, and promotes appearances by his family members on the channel.

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.

Wallace also seemed to make an appeal to those defending the Trump Jr. meeting. "If you're clean, come on clean", the host said.

And on Friday's "Fox News Specialists", panelist Eric Bolling said Russian Federation may have been colluding with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, not Trump Jr., to get information on then-presidential rival Trump. "I think there is very little legal jeopardy for Donald Trump, Jr., but there's a huge problem with the credibility of the White House because they kept saying there is no collusion, there have been no contacts, this is all a hoax, it is all fake news".

"This really shouldn't be a matter of liberal vs. conservative, pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump", Wallace said.

It's so obvious, even Fox News can see it.
