While on her show, Ms. Pirro said, “As someone who’s run for office five times, if the devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent I’d be on the first trolley to hell to get it.

Fox and other far-right news outlets claim that it was not wrong for Donald Trump, Jr., the son of a Presidential candidate, to meet with Kremlin-connected Russians for the purpose of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton. The right wing commentariat, who once claimed there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump administration and Russia, now say collusion in itself, is not a crime.
Many others disagree with this particular line of legal analysis. Critics contend, that at the very least, Donald Trump, Jr.’s willingness to meet with kremlin-connected individuals demonstrate a willingness to collaborate with an enemy state.
