That's some Fox News nonsense for you. By that reporter's logic, Thomas Jefferson couldn't possibly own slaves because of his relationship with Sally Hemmings. Human compartmentalization and racism can do wonders together. More to the point though, the reporter completely ignores the actual and extensive evidence collected by the Justice Department:

Also Trump completely acted out of ordinary protocol by not wanting for the sentencing and not letting this go through the normal Justice Department process.
