Van Jones, a former Obama advisor and top CNN commentator, told an undercover Project Veritas reporter the “Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.” The video is the second in a series Jame O’Keefe’s investigative organization dubbed American Pravda, which aims to expose media bias at the now scandal-plagued CNN.
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Jones admits. The far left-wing commentator called his victory “a white lash” and repeatedly says Democrats need to be “demanding investigations of all his BS,” as he wrote on Facebook.
In the first video, a CNN producer admitted the Russia narrative was “bull$#!t.”
John Bonifield can be heard on the video openly admitting that there is “no proof” of President Donald Trump “colluding” with or having ties to Russia. He also admits it’s a ratings stunt.
“We don’t have any giant proof,” Bonifield said. “And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look, you’re witch-hunting me.”
Bonifield, who has worked at CNN for nearly 15 years, also said CEO Jeff Zucker told senior producers and staff in a meeting to move on from covering the climate accords and get back to Russia. Zucker is an anti-Trump zealot.
CNN is under fire for having to retract a patently false story claiming Trump associates were under investigation for holding previously undisclosed meetings with Russian officials. The story was completely untrue and three CNN employees “resigned.”
