Wallace: Fair-Minded Citizens 'Ought to Be Concerned' About Russia Revelations
Chris Wallace joined Shepard Smith this afternoon to react to new revelations about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer.
Trump Jr. met in June 2016 with attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, who claimed to have information damaging to Hillary Clinton.
Trump Jr. maintains nothing came from the brief meeting, but he has been criticized for meeting with a Russian government lawyer in an attempt to help his father's presidential campaign, and also for changing his story about the meeting several times.
The obvious question: If the meeting was a "waste of time" & a "nothing burger," why lie after lie after lie?https://t.co/AscbTcl8Ck

Good question: here's another: if it wasn't a nothing burger then what came of it? https://t.co/SQT7nq8RKU

"This really shouldn't be a matter of liberal vs. conservative, pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump," Wallace said. "If you're a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned."
Wallace said everybody who served on the Trump campaign or in the Trump White House should come forward with every single contact they have ever had with a Russian.
He said it may be bad or embarrassing, but the ongoing trickle of new information is even more damaging.
"Come clean, tell it now, let the chips fall where they may," Wallace said. "And in fact if there was no crime committed, you'll survive it. It'll be embarrassing, but it will be better than this."
