There's nothing inappropriate about Donald Trump's ties with Russia - the controversy is all a media conspiracy.

That's according to media commentator and Trump supporter Charlie Wolf, who spoke to Julia Hartley-Brewer about reports that the US President asked the FBI to drop allegations about his campaign working with the Russian government before his election victory.

Wolf, former communications director of Republicans Abroad, accused the press of "juicing this up" and said the media needs to "let Trump get on with his job."

This prompted incredulity from Julia, who pointed out that Trump has admitted sharing classified information with Russia - so we are perfectly justified in questioning his ties with the Kremlin.

Julia also suggested Trump's promise to "drain the swamp" is falling flat if he is willing to pressure the FBI to drop an investigation into his own conduct.
