Following the release of a new Project Veritas video, which features CNN medical producer John Bonifield admitting that the network was pushing the Russia collusion story for ratings, CNN has announced their plans for him.
Tuesday, the network released statement saying they “embrace” Bonifield’s opinion. “CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield. Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it,” the statement said.
Bonifield tells an undercover investigator that the Russia connection to President Trump is “mostly bullsh** right now,” during a secret video released by Project Veritas. “I just feel like they really don’t have it [proof of collusion] but they want to keep digging,” Bonifield said.
The Project Veritas website doesn’t identify the date of the conversation, but Bonifield references a June tweet by President Trump, in which Trump called the obstruction of justice investigation a “witchhunt.”
Bonifield told the undercover Veritas investigator, “I think the president is probably right to say, ‘Look, you are witch hunting me.”
The Project Veritas video follows another CNN scandal that broke Monday, in which three of their journalists were forced to resign after producing an error-filled report related to Trump’s association with Russia.
President Trump was quick to comment on the story, tweeting Tuesday morning about CNN being “fake news.”
