Bill O'Reilly: Trump Jr.'s Russia Meeting 'Dumb,' Not Treasonous

A 2016 Trump Tower meeting between President Donald Trump's eldest son and a Russian lawyer was "dumb," but not "treasonous" as Steve Bannon reportedly described it, according to Bill O'Reilly.

In an interview Wednesday with John Bachman on Newsmax TV, the political commentator, author, and former veteran Fox News anchor said the forthcoming book by writer Michael Wolff, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," will at the worst set off some short-term "sniping" between the president and his former White House strategist.

"Donald Trump Jr. takes a meeting with some Russian people – he's not really sure who they are – he goes up in the Trump Tower, and they sit there because he thinks it's going to get dirt on Hillary Clinton," O'Reilly said. "There is no dirt, the meeting lasts 20 minutes and everybody leaves. Is this a big felony? Not to me."

"Is it smart that Donald Trump Jr. went there without an attorney? No, and that's the point that Steve Bannon makes, and it's a good point,” he added.

O'Reilly said what is likely "going to come out of this" is "just sniping back and forth. I don't see it a bigger story than that."

"There's a lot more important things going on than Steve Bannon versus Donald Trump," he added.

O'Reilly also dismissed the furor over Trump's nuclear button tweet, calling the controversy "more madness on the part of the media."

"Trump's being sarcastic?" he said.

"We've now seen Donald Trump for two years," O'Reilly added. "We know who he is. We know that he's provocative. He says something like that, and you think the North Korea dictator's going to say, 'OK now we're going to launch some nuclear weapon.' I mean, come on. It's just dumb. But it's the press that does it."
