On Tuesday, during Fox News’ Outnumbered, a Fox News panelist seemed to suggest that FBI employees who exchanged anti-Trump text messages had plans to assassinate Trump.
Guest co-host and conservative radio talk show host, Kevin Jackson, questioned the intent behind the text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, his alleged mistress.
Since the text messages between Strzok and Page were found, Strzok was removed from Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Jackson asked the panel, “I think they will say, what was his intent, right?”
He continued, “That is exactly what former FBI Director James Comey said when he was letting Hillary Clinton off the hook. And his intent whether it was an assassination attempt or whether, it was definitely something.”

Another panelist, Sandra Smith, spoke up and noted that Jackson is referring to news sources that weren’t vetted. Smith stated, “Nothing credible.”
To which Jackson replied, “Well, yeah.”
This is not the first time Jackson has said something this absurd. Earlier this month, he claimed that Colin Kaepernick gave money to terrorists.
