Rightwing Media Ignores Senate Report On 2016 Election



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Matt Gertz about the rightwing media ignoring the 2016 Senate report.

Sean Hannity, the popular Fox News host said on his program in the wake of the Senate report on Russia’s interference in our elections, that just like he’s been saying for years, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Except that exactly the opposite is true. After 3 years Republican and Democratic Senators released a nearly 1,000 page report that not only confirms the findings of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, but goes much further in confirming high-levels of contact between Trump’s campaign and Russian operatives.

In fact, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office on Thursday attempted to reinstate the indictment of former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort based on the damning findings of the report.
