A producer for CNN admitted in a newly released undercover spy video that President Trump is "probably right" in accusing his opponents of engaging in a witch hunt as it relates to collusion with Russia.
The video, published online Monday night by conservative sting activist James O'Keefe's Project Veritas website, shows John Bonifield, a CNN producer who covers medical issues, saying, "I just feel like they really don't have it [proof of collusion] but they want to keep digging."
He continued, "And so I think the president is probably right to say, ‘Look, you are witch hunting me.'"
Bonifield also says in the video that that federal investigation into whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with the Russian government "could be bullshit" and that it's "mostly bullshit right now."
The Project Veritas video was apparently produced without Bonifield's knowing he was being recorded, a tactic O'Keefe has used before to undercover supposed wrongdoing by liberals and Democrats.
O'Keefe's website doesn't say when the conversation with Bonifield took place.
The Washington Examiner has requested comment from Bonifield.
