During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump faced constant criticism in regards to being in possible cahoots with Russia. Despite the president denying the allegations against him, the latest round of reports only pile on the damaging information.

Fox News on Russia

Following Donald Trump's shocking upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, speculation grew on a daily basis about whether or not his presidential campaign had been working with Russia to ensure his victory. During the election, questions were raised early on when the former host of "The Apprentice" avoided all criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Following Trump's victory, various well-respected news outlets and government agencies released their findings which linked back to several former and current members of the campaign and administration. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Adviser just weeks after taking on the job due to his ties back to the Kremlin, which started a domino effect onto other members. Earlier this week, Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Mark Warner of the Senate Intelligence Committee all but confirmed that Russia hacked into the election in favor of Trump, while announcing that the investigation into collusion was still ongoing. After the White House pushed back against the latest report, one host on Fox News decided to sound off during an October 5 broadcast.

Joined by Tom Lobianco of the Associated Press on Thursday, Fox News host Shepard Smith highlighted the Russian Scandal and the ongoing investigation in Congress. "There's always one person who says this is 'fake news,' this Russian investigation, and that's the president," Smith said.

"Whether Russia meddled in out election is not in dispute," he continued.

"Things that don’t make sense," Shepard Smith said. The Fox News host then questioned Donald Trump's behavior on the issue, saying that if the president was innocent, he would be asking, "Please, come find out anything that went wrong." "That is not what this White House is doing," Smith concluded.

Smith has been one of the few on Fox News to speak out against Trump at times, which contradicts the more conservative tone of the network.
