Project Veritas released an uncover video this week showing CNN anchor Van Jones calling the Trump-Russia collusion story as “a big nothing burger,” the Gateway Pundit reports.
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger. There’s nothing there you can do,” Jones told a person who secretly recorded the conversation.
The unnamed person, who is also a CNN employee, told Jones that he had met him “in Palm Springs” a few years back.
Jones’ comments are not really inconsistent with what he has said on air.
He has criticized the Trump administration for their lukewarm response to the Russian meddling issue, but he has also lambasted the Democrats for using Russia story as an excuse for their embarrassing defeat in the 2016 elections.
In the recording, Jones appears to know the person he is talking to, but is not aware that he is being recorded.
