After BuzzFeed published a 35-page document claiming that the Russian government has damaging information about Donald Trump — which he blasted as “fake news” Wednesday — Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts had a field day.
“Now we can’t get into specifics,” Goldberg said, “but I do have to ask because he’s being showeredwith allegations right now, is this a golden opportunity for Democrats or will he be able to clean up these leaks?”
“We said they are unsubstantiated, but I do recall the days when they were saying Obama wasn’t an American — he’s a Muslim — or he’s part of the Taliban. Those weren’t substantiated. Those were fake news and yet they ran with it.”
“Well, we’re going to run with this, too,” Joy Behar cut in. “I’ve got my running shoes on.”
“So here’s the scenario,” she continued. “He becomes ‘president’ and the Russians can blackmail him about the boycotts, for example. So he lifts the sanctions ‘because otherwise we’re gonna get you, sucker.’ And that’s why there’s a problem.”

“If any of this is true, and is found to be true — and the FBI is currently investigating it, they’re doing their job — this is very problematic because the allegations are there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” Bila said “And if you remember, a lot of people that opposed Hillary Clinton opposed her because they felt because of the email leak that she was potentially compromised.”
