Fox News Channel anchor Shepard Smith on Friday assailed the ‘mind-boggling deception’ by the Trump administration in explaining its role in the ongoing Russia investigation.

In a segment with his network colleague Chris Wallace, Smith was offering commentary about the latest revelations in the unfolding scandal.

He did not hold back when he spoke about the revelations that President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, failed to disclose the fact that there were more participants in his June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-American dual national and former Soviet spy who became a lobbyist, was also at the meeting in Trump Tower attended by Trump Jr, then-campaign chair Paul Manafort, top adviser Jared Kushner, and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

‘The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling,’ Smith told Wallace.

Smith’s network is usually sympathetic to the Trump administration, however he has criticized the president multiple times in the past.

Smith continued: ‘And there are still people who are out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look around and go, Where are we, and why are we getting told all these lies?’
This is not the first time that Smith has aimed criticism at the Trump White House.
