On Thursday evening’s edition of “The Five,” panelists Juan Williams and Meghan McCain went at it over Donald Trump Jr. and Russia.
Williams, one of the last remaining resident Democrats at Fox News, defended the previous administration for allowing a scandal-plagued Russian lawyer into the United States.
Last week, it was revealed that Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Donald Trump Jr. and other key advisors to President Donald Trump under the guise that she could provide them with damaging information on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, care of the Russian government.
Meghan McCain believes that former President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch never took Russia seriously, and Veselnitskaya and her legal entry into the United States prove as such.
“I’m sorry that your party never took any of this seriously for years and years and years!” McCain said to Williams. “Those are the facts! I am not manifesting something that doesn’t exist.”
She added: “I am telling you that Obama never took Russia seriously and that is why this woman somehow ended up in the country.”
Needless to say, Williams was out-gunned on the Fox News set. Fellow panelists Jesse Watters, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Greg Gutfeld joined with McCain in tackling Williams’ argument and defending the Trump family.
