White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer asserted Thursday that there is more evidence that CNN colluded with Hillary Clinton’s campaign than there is that Trump associates conspired with the Russian government.
During a press briefing, Spicer de-emphasized a Wednesday CNN report that U.S. officials might have evidence that Trump associates conspired with Russia to release detrimental information about Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 presidential election cycle.
“The last line of [the CNN report] said, ‘The FBI cannot yet prove that collusion took place,’” Spicer said.
“I think there’s probably more evidence that CNN colluded with the Clinton campaign to give her debate questions than Trump campaign gave any kind of collusion,” he added.
Emails released by WikiLeaks revealed that former CNN contributor Donna Brazile provided debate and town hall questions to the Clinton campaign during the Democratic primaries.
Regarding CNN’s claims, Spicer said, “That reporting is filled with a bunch of subjective terms about, ‘This person may have done this, possibly could have done that,’ and at the end of the story, if you wade to the very bottom, it says, ‘The FBI cannot yet prove that collusion took place.’”
