Following the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe, Gregg Jarrett was joined by a panel of experts on Fox Nation's "The Russia Hoax" to discuss the legitimacy -- or illegitimacy -- of the investigation and what comes next.

Attorney General William Barr on Sunday released the "principal conclusions" of Mueller's completed Russia probe in a four-page letter to lawmakers, which stated definitively that Mueller did not establish evidence that Trump's team or any associates of the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election.

According to Barr's letter, however, Mueller's report did not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice, and left that decision to Barr and officials at the DOJ -- who determined there was insufficient evidence of obstruction.

"It was a hoax all along. There was never any credible evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. It was all a big fiction," Jarrett said.

He noted that the infamous, unverified anti-Trump dossier -- which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign -- was used to help justify the investigation and surveillance warrants on Trump associates.

He said Democratic lawmakers and left-leaning pundits were all too happy to run with it.

"It spread like an airborne contagion. The media became witting accessories to the Russia hoax, convicting Trump in the court of public opinion without any real evidence, all in hopes of delegitimizing the duly elected president of the United States," Jarrett said.
