This has got to be one of the worst segments Cousins has ever done. Why? While Cousins insists that everyone who questions the way in which the FBI investigated the suspected hack into the DNC servers, he goes on to show his own ignorance.

  • First, Mr. Cousins talks about information found in an article from The Daily Beast, although he doesn’t mention it by name.
