It’s a good idea to never anger Maria Bartiromo. Far left loom, Rep Jim Himes found that out when he tried to lie on her program. Himes lied and said that Don Jr summoned the Russians to Trump Tower.
Bartiromo did not let him get away with that and pointed out that the Russians contacted him. Stung by that rebuke, he tried another lie, but trying to slip a lie past Bartiromo is harder than trying to sneak a steak past a pit bull. He said that campaign workers are going to jail over collusion.

Rep. Jim Himes: OK, let me try one more time. The president’s son asked the Russians to Trump Tower for a meeting…

Rep. Jim Himes: …Maria, how many of the president’s people are now going to jail for lying about contacts with Russians? Why do you lie about contacts with Russians?
Maria Bartiromo: The contacts have NOTHING TO DO with collusion. You know that…
