In a discussion on Fox & Friends, Steve Doocy attempted to explain the legal principle of the crime-fraud exception, which allows certain confidential communications, such as those between an attorney and their client, to be disclosed in court if they were made to further the commission of a crime or fraud. This is the basis on which former Trump attorney and fixer Michael Cohen was able to provide evidence against his former client. However, Doocy’s co-hosts, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, appeared dismissive of the principle, with Kilmeade claiming that it is rarely used. Doocy countered this by pointing out that it’s being used in this case and even if it’s seldom used, it’s still a law on the books. For once, Steve Doocy did his best to introduce facts and sanity into a Fox News political discussion, but the pushback he got goes to show they’re not interested in getting to the truth of the matter on Fox.
