BOMBSHELL video: CNN producer admits Trump-Russia story is “mostly bullsh*t”

President Donald Trump has branded CNN “fake news” and “very fake news” to their faces in the past – and a veteran CNN producer admits as much in James O’Keefe’s latest undercover investigation.

The first installment of a new series produced by O’Keefe’s “Project Veritas” called “American Pravda” features various conversations with CNN’s John Bonifield, who has been working with CNN for 15 years. He admits, flat out, that there’s no proof for any of the claims they’re making surrounding Donald Trump and Russia, and the network is just pushing the story for ratings.

“It’s mostly bullsh*t right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof. The way these leaks happen, they would have leaked it. If it was something really good, it would leak. So, I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. So I think the president is probably right to say, ‘Look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof,” he told the undercover journalist.”

He also admitted that they’ve been much more critical of Trump than they were of Obama, stating “if we would have behaved that way with President Obama and scrutinized everything that he was doing with as much scrutiny as we apply to Donald Trump, I think our viewers would have been turned off. I think they would have felt like we were attacking him.”

Watch below:

The Trump family took notice not long after the story broke, blasting CNN for the revelations:

Will they finally be forced to drop the Russia story out of embarrassment now? Don’t hold your breath.
