Political activist Dr Shola clashed with US commentator Scottie Nell Hughes in a bitter row on Sky News. The pair had been set to discuss the recent FBI search of former American president Donald Trump’s home, before the debate spiralled into a heated argument. Dr Shola accused Mr Trump of being a “lying cheat” after the politician denounced the FBI as “corrupt” following the search. Ms Hughes hit back, claiming that the FBI had no “evidence” against the former president and that security authorities were certain to face “major backlash.”
Speaking on Sky News, Dr Shola gave her assessment of the FBI’s decision to issue Donald Trump with a court-approved warrant and search his Palm Beach home.
Dr Shola said: “The lies are only coming from one side.
“The lies are coming from the lying cheat Donald Trump and the liar party the Republicans.
“They are trying to undermine law enforcement, they are not speaking the truth.”
Ms Hughes shook her head in disapproval as Dr Shola spoke, appearing at times to break into a smirk of laughter.
She responded: “If it was all about transparency, and I respect Shola’s passion about it, I wish there was evidence to back up what she is saying as true.
“We don’t know and that’s a week later, we still do not know what the FBI was looking for, what they found.
“After months of the Trump campaign working with the FBI, why did they decide to do this raid?”
