Fox News host Shep Smith forcefully shut down President Donald Trump's longtime questioning of the validity of special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Smith's words were especially pointed because the majority of his colleagues on the Fox network are sycophantic supporters of Trump.

“If there was ever any question, even a single question, there is no more,” Smith said, before explaining Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian nationals.

“Russia attacked the United States of America,” Smith continued. “A coordinated government-sponsored campaign to undermine America’s democracy, eventually in support of Donald Trump and against Hillary Clinton.”

“The Russian investigation is the opposite of a hoax,” Smith declared.

"Now we know how vulnerable we were and how effective the Russians became."
