Fox News anchor Shepard Smith thinks actions by the White House involving former national security adviser Mike Flynn are “giving the appearance” of a cover-up.
Smith arrived at his conclusion Tuesday following a statement by House Oversight Committee leaders who said Flynn may not have complied with federal law by receiving payments from Russian organizations and the government of Turkey.
“The situation is unprecedented,” Smith said, speaking with White House correspondent John Roberts. “Never in American history has a man so close to the president, on his cabinet, the national security adviser no less, been accused of committing a crime by taking money from a foreign entity, much less one connected to the Russians.”
At Tuesday’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was peppered with questions about the administration’s denial of a request to provide the House Oversight Committee with documents related to Flynn.
“At the core of all this is the Russians interfered with our elections,” Smith announced. “General Flynn received money through an entity that was from the Russians. And what they want to know is was there collusion?”
Flynn resigned in February following revelations that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with a Russian ambassador before President Trump’s inauguration.
“The White House at least is giving the appearance, according to these congress leaders, of a lack of cooperation, which could give an overall appearance that they’re trying to cover something up,” Smith concluded.
“Why not quit with all the semantic juggling and stuff and get to the bottom of this as quickly as possible?” he asked.
“Actions have consequences,” Smith said. “There are a lot of different strategies to be employed here. The one that they’ve taken at the White House: how dangerous is it?”
