Conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer destroyed Fox News’ host Martha McCallum for defending Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer to get Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Trump Jr. defended his meeting with the lawyer saying he didn’t get anything out of it. Krauthammer fired back, telling Martha MacCallum, “It’s a hell of a defense to say your collusion might be incompetent.”
“If you get a call to go to a certain place in the middle of the night to pick up stolen goods and it turns out the stolen goods don’t show up but the cops show up,” he added. “I think you’re going to have a very weak story saying, ‘Well, I got swindled here.’”

Donald Trump Jr. admitted on Monday that he met with the Russian lawyer because an intermediary, Rob Goldstone, told him that a high level Russian government official wanted to help his father’s campaign by giving them damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
Trump Jr. responded to the prospect of getting dirt on Hillary Clinton, saying, “I love it.”
