Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Friday that “there is more evidence at this point of Democratic collusion with the Russians than there is of Republican collusion with the Russians” in last year’s presidential election.
Wallace’s commentary comes as Republicans have seized on the revelation that Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonAttorney indicted on charge of lying to FBI as part of Durham investigation Durham seeking indictment of lawyer with ties to Democrats: reports Paul Ryan researched narcissistic personality disorder after Trump win: book MORE’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee funded a controversial dossier on Donald Trump to point the finger back at Democrats regarding Russia’s meddling in the election.
The dossier, which offered evidence of links between Trump’s campaign and Russia, was put together by former British spy Christopher Steele.
“The fact that Hillary Clinton, or at least her campaign and the DNC, was doing business with a foreign national, a British spy, to get information from the Russians for this dossier certainly blunts the idea, ‘Well, it was the Trump campaign and it was outrageous the Trump campaign was having anything to do with the Russians to maybe affect at the election,'” Wallace told “America's Newsroom” anchor Sandra Smith.

“Having said that, we still don’t know about Robert Mueller [and his] investigation. Both things could be true that both sides were trying to get aid from the Russians and it certainly seems true that Russians were playing both sides to try to disrupt the election," Wallace continued.
“We still have to wait and see, but there is more evidence at this point of Democratic collusion with the Russians than there is of Republican collusion with the Russians."
