'You've Been Lied to for Years': Tucker, Hannity & Ingraham on Mueller's 'No Collusion' Finding
Tucker likens 'hoax' reporting to claims of WMDs in Iraq.
Tucker Carlson said the people behind the two-year-long Russia collusion narrative must be held accountable, but likely will not be.
After Special Counsel Robert Mueller's exhaustive investigation did not establish evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to sway the 2016 election, Carlson pointed out that CNN has been lying to viewers "relentlessly," but admits no fault in the wake of Mueller's conclusion.
He likened the collusion story to the run-up to the Iraq War and the faulty narrative about weapons of mass destruction in the hands of Saddam Hussein.
"They will never face the consequences of the disasters they created," said Carlson.
"Instead, they'll keep getting rich from failure -- another TV contract, another committee chairmanship, another fat grant from a Soros-funded foundation. And as they prosper, they will continue to lecture you from Twitter about your imaginary moral failings. 'Shut up, racist. Obey,'" Carlson said.
"That's what's likely to happen in the aftermath of this hoax. That's what's always happened. How long do they think this can continue?"

In his opening monologue, Sean Hannity called out MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and others for pushing "conspiracy theories" and lies on a nightly basis.
"They should feel humiliated, they should be apologizing to the American people. It will take me months, but we will follow every lead, and we will remind you what has been done here," he said.
Hannity said supportive viewers urged him to "spike the football" and celebrate, but he said he instead felt angry and said Americans should feel the same way about what has occurred.
"This is only the first chapter. This must be a day of reckoning for the media, for the Deep State, for people who abused power -- and did it so blatantly," he said.

Laura Ingraham said in her "Angle" commentary that a "reckoning" is at hand for anti-Trump forces in Washington, D.C. and in the media.
"America deserves to know what really happened here, the forces, the individuals and the motivations behind this total travesty of justice We must ensure those responsible face real political, legal and professional repercussions," she said, highlighting President Trump's statement Monday that "we can never let this happen to another president again."
She went on to lay out the Russia collusion "Hall of Shame," calling out top Democrats like Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, Mazie Hirono, Richard Blumenthal and Jerry Nadler for speaking recklessly about Trump and Russia without evidence.
Ingraham said despite Mueller's findings, Democrats still appear to be refusing to drop the collusion accusations.
"As I always say, being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry."
