While President Donald Trump travels to London to address sensitive national security issues, “Fox & Friends” participants comment on the Democrats’ “rigged” impeachment hearings.
In particular, they referred to the next stage being prepared by the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), in Sunday morning’s broadcast.
The co-host of the program, Pete Hegseth, said that the impeachment is hurting the Democrats, since the citizens are aware of the irregularities in the process.
“People are smart enough to understand a system that is rigged against somebody,” Hegseth argued, pointing out that Nadler ignored a letter from Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), requesting a bipartisan takeover of witnesses.
“Adam Schiff laid out the show trial he wanted to create, there is no reason Jerry Nadler will not jerry-rig the Judiciary Committee,” stressed Hegseth.
“They’re gonna call their own people, on their own timeline, with their own evidence and the president has to decide to what extent they want to be involved,” Hegseth argued.
He also criticized the fact that the process was executed at full speed with witnesses the Democrats believed would help them and after practicing behind closed doors.
Hegseth said polls show that the impeachment process appears to be hurting Democrats.
Similarly, co-host Ed Henry recalled that previously, under similar circumstances, politicians would suspend business until the president of whatever party returned to the country after meeting foreign businesses.
“Whether it’s a Democratic or Republican president, when the president is overseas Congress would hold back, there wouldn’t be partisanship or politics,” alluding to the fact that Democratic legislators rushed through the next stages of the trial in the absence of the president.
Thus, in a tweet, President Trump criticized the Democrats’ scheduling of hearings precisely while he was attending to matters in London.
Democrats claim that President Donald Trump put pressure on his Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, one of his potential opponents in the 2020 presidential election. None of this has been proven throughout the controversial impeachment inquiry.
