The biggest story in American politics has involved Donald Trump and his reported link to Russia. While the White House and much of the right wing media continue to deny the allegations, one conservative host is pushing back.

Fox News on Trump

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president back in June 2015, he quickly fell out of favor with the media when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." While most of the media has gone on to hold Trump's feet to the fire over the last two year, the majority of the hosts, anchors and reporters at Fox News have been favorable to the former host of "The Apprentice." As the scandal surrounding Russia has only continued to cause problems for the president, Fox News has made it a routine to defend him from the claims, despite the mounting evidence that gets released.

The latest twist in the story comes in the form of the recent testimony of former FBI Director James Comey who testified in Congress last week. While there wasn't one single bombshell to blow the case open against Trump, Comey did swear under oath that the president lied about his handling of his exit from the FBI. These issues were discussed during the June 11 edition of "Fox & Friends" on Fox News.

Joining the weekend hosts of "Fox & Friends" was fellow network host Chris Wallace as the recent James Comey testimony and the scandal surrounding Donald Trump and Russia was the main topic. Host Clayton Morris dismissed the Russian scandal following the Comey testimony, stating that the “Russia story imploded this week." "Little evidence has been shown that there’s collusion with Russia,” fellow host Pete Hegseth noted, because accusing Comey of being a "leaker." Not stopping there, Hegseth referred to the entire story as a "nothingburger."

At this point, Chris Wallace was forced to correct the record.

While Wallace did agree that there wasn't any "hard evidence," he pushed back at his fellow hosts claiming the scandal was dead in the water. "I certainly wouldn’t say it’s a nothingburger,” Wallace fired back. "We still haven’t heard from Michael Flynn," he noted, before adding, "he's one of the key figures in all of this." "He was the one who had the most contacts Russia," Wallace pointed out, while reminding his colleagues "He's (Flynn) the one who got paid by Russia."

With even some at Fox News are jumping off the so-called "Trump Train," the president appears to be backed into a corner on the issue at hand. While it's unknown what the next step will be involving Russia, the latest reports paint a bleak picture of the how the commander in chief is handling the pressure.
