CNN Commentator Van Jones Admits Trump-Russia Investigation Is A “Nothing burger”

Following Project Veritas’ explosive report on a CNN producer admitting the narrative around Trump collusion with Russia was all “bullsh**,” the media watchdog organization has released more footage further discrediting the network.
In newly-released footage, popular CNN commentator Van Jones admits the whole Russia investigation is a big “nothing burger.”
Van Jones, famous for his role as an Obama Administration czar, was caught on camera admitting what most Americans already know: The media’s focus on Trump-Russia connections is done solely for ratings. Watch:
Van Jones doesn’t just discredit the Russia-Trump allegation, he takes aim at the Clinton campaign as well.
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Jones says on the video, apparently unaware he is being filmed. “There’s nothing there you can do.”
The comments caught on tape aren’t terribly inconsistent with what Jones has said in the past. While Jones has criticized Trump’s lukewarm responses to Russian election interference, he has also gone after the Democrats for using Russia as an excuse for their 2016 failure.
“Let’s be honest,” Jones said of the Clinton campaign earlier this June. “They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign!”
Well, there you have it, right from the horse’s mouth. Van Jones admits that CNN is deliberately pushing a non-story for ratings. For shame!
