CNN is the last place anyone would expect to hear the truth about the 2016 campaign and the scandals that dogged Hillary Clinton.

The liberal network is devoted to all things anti-Trump 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

But one CNN commentator left jaws on the ground with his statement about Hillary Clinton and one huge scandal.

On Sunday, Donald Trump attacked the idea that his son Donald Trump, Jr. had done anything wrong when he had agreed to a meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.

It turned out that the Russians true purpose of this meeting was to lobby the Trump campaign on repealing the Magnitsky Act, which had leveled sanctions against Russian adoption.

Trump had tweeted:

Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

Even though this was the same account Trump had given in a July 17th press conference, the fake news media misled their viewers and claimed Trump had reversed course and was admitting that the meeting was about dirt on Clinton.

They also claimed Trump was lying when he said his son had not broken any laws.

Liberal activists masquerading as journalists cited campaign finance laws that make it illegal to accept anything of value from foreigners.

But CNN legal analyst Ross Garber blew this ridiculous accusation out of the water.

Appearing on the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Garber stated, “I think there I actually a fairly good argument that it’s not illegal, that information would not be considered by the courts to be a ‘thing of value,’ largely because of the First Amendment.”

“Once you start saying that us talking to each other constitutes a thing of value, it winds up being a slippery slope and then the other thing the President points out, fairly, is if information is a thing of value, well then what about the information that came from Russian nationals and to the Clinton campaign and the DNC through Steele? That’s a fair point,” Garber concluded.

The only known instance in the 2016 campaign of the Russians passing “dirt” on a political candidate to a rival is the Clinton campaign receiving information from the Steele dossier that was fed to the ex-British spy by Russian nationals.

CNN analyst Gloria Borger then tried to make the case that Trump, Jr. broke the law because the information came from a foreign national, but Garber shut her down.

“We should talk about the Clinton situation because it’s not dissimilar. In the Clinton situation there is information coming from Russian nationals to the Clinton campaign through somebody else,” Garber concluded.

Do you think Hillary Clinton colluding with the Russians is the real scandal here?
