The Russian collusion theory now seems to be the “hoax of the century,” according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt. In 2016, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele produced a dossier outlining sensational allegations against Donald Trump, alleging, among a number of things, criminal links with Russia.
Mr Bolt said American media was “obsessed” with the “hoax” for three years. “But then a year-long investigation by a former FBI boss concluded there was no collusion, and now a special counsel, John Durham, is investigating how the material behind these collusion claims was put together,” he said. “The results are dynamite.” Mr Bolt discussed the issue with Sky News Washington correspondent Annelise Nielsen.
