As the scandal surrounding Russia's potential involvement in the Donald Trump administration continues, the president and his team are doing whatever it takes to deflect from the allegations. After even more news broke on Thursday, one host on Fox News appeared to have had enough.

Fox News on Russia

Just weeks after Donald Trump was sworn into office, it was revealed that his National Security Adviser, retired Gen. Michael Flynn, had been in contact with a high-ranking Russian offical. The news sent shock-waves through Washington, D.C., and the pressure mounted to the point that Flynn was forced to resign from his position.

Earlier this week, it was also revealed that Flynn was acting as a foreign agent and reportedly accepted over $500,000 to do consulting work for the Turkish government. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked about this issue during Thursday's press briefing, but brushed it off by saying the administration likely was not aware. As reported by Mediaite on March 9, the topic was highlighted on Fox News.

Fox News host Shepard Smith spoke with Associated Press reporter Julie Bykowicz and didn't hold back his thoughts about what is going on in the White House. "The White House said he (Flynn) was a private citizen at the time, but there’s been a lot of lying," Smith said. "There's been a lot of lying, there's been lying about who you talk to and by lots of people," he continued, while adding, "Almost inevitably and invariably, they were lying about talking to the Russians about something."

Russian trouble

Not stopping there, Shepard Smith hammered at Donald Trump and the White House again for continuing to lie to the American people.

"It's too much lying and too much Russia," Smith concluded. This isn't the first time that Smith has been critical of the current administration, proving to be one of the few hosts and anchors on the conservative friendly Fox News to take the former host of "The Apprentice" to task. As Trump denies any wrongdoing involving Russia, it appears that even some in the right-wing media are starting to get fed up with the president.
