Fox News' Charles Krauthammer Torches Conservatives Pretending Donald Jr. Wasn't Colluding with Russians

News & Politics

Contributing editor to the conservative Weekly Standard and Fox News panelist has blasted the defense being offered for the actions of Donald Trump, Jr.

Charles Krauthammer appeared Tuesday on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum and blasted President Donald Trump’s namesake child for his meeting with Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

“If you get a call to go to a certain place in the middle of the night to pick up stolen goods, and it turns out stolen goods don’t show up but the cops show up, I think you’re going to have a weak story saying, ‘well, I got swindled here,'” Krauthammer explained.

“The denial of collusion is very weak right now because it looks as if Don Junior was receptive to receiving this information,” Krauthammer explained. “It’s a hell of a defense to say your collusion wasn’t competent and it didn’t work out.”

“Come on, that is pathetic,” Krauthammer said of those making excuses for Trump, Jr.
