The James O’Keefe-run organization also caught him admitting that CNN only runs the story for ratings.
Project Veritas, a James O’Keefe-run guerilla journalism organization, released damning videos of a CNN producer undermining the network’s own Trump-Russia narrative on Monday.
“[The Trump-Russia narrative’s] mostly bullsh*t right now,” John Bonifield, the producer, said to an undercover Veritas journalist. “We don’t have any big giant proof.”
Bonifield even questioned the nature of the official investigation into Trump-Russia ties: “They say, ‘Well there’s still an investigation going on.’ I don’t know, if you were finding something, we would know about it.”
“The way these leaks happen, they’d leak [any information]. It’d leak. If it was something really good, it would leak,” he continued. “So, I just feel like they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging.”
The CNN supervising producer said that President Trump was right to protest CNN’s coverage of the narrative. “I think the president is probably right to say, like, ‘Look you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.'”
Bonifield also admitted that CNN never would have hounded President Obama the way they have gone after Trump.
The release of the video came on the same day that CNN dismissed three journalists for a retracted story about financial ties between Trump and Russia.
