MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said in a Rolling Stone interview published Wednesday that it is "possible" President Trump's campaign had no knowledge of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

In the┬áinterview, Maddow made it clear she does believe Russia attempted to influence the election. 

When asked if she thought it was possible the the Trump campaign team had no knowledge of the Russian meddling, Maddow replied, "I absolutely believe it's possible. I mean, Russia clearly did this attack, and there's lots of circumstantial evidence," adding, "But circumstantial evidence is circumstantial evidence."

Maddow has spent extensive time covering Trump's campaign and White House administration. According to an April report by The Intercept, Maddow dedicated 53 percent of her show to covering Trump- and Russia-related stories.  

Her latest comment about Trump comes as Associated Press/NORC newest poll published Thursday states at least 60 percent of Americans think Trump "has tried to impede or obstruct the investigation" into Russia's meddling in U.S. election.
