Fox News show host, Maria Bartiromo states, “It’s incredible to me that the main stream media refuses to report the actual stories that are most important to the American people. Not to mention your personal life in terms of the fact that you have more money in your pocket and the fact that you have done so much better given these new policies. But also the glaring ignoring of probably the biggest story of our time and that of course is the cabal of people at the top of the FBI and the DOJ who put their finger on the scale and tried to change an election. By creating a narrative that Donald Trump had anything to do with Russia and putting him into the Russian meddling scandal. It’s actually incredible.”
