Fox News’ impeachment coverage continues to confound Trump supporters.
The formerly “Fair and Balanced” outlet has turned into what Rush Limbaugh calls the “Never-Trump” network.
And now Fox News took a stand on impeachment that left viewers stunned into silence.
Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano continued to advocate for removing the President from office on Monday.
In a segment on America’s Newsroom, Napolitano latched onto the Hail Mary effort by Democrats to claim emails from an Office of Management and Budget official and the Pentagon showing President Trump ordered the freeze on Ukraine military aid justified a new investigation and more articles of impeachment.
On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” network senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said if he were a Democrat in the House, he would re-open the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Referring to emails from White House officials to Pentagon officials, Napolitano said, “If I were a Democrat in the House, I would be moving to re-open the impeachment on the basis of the newly-acquired evidence, these new emails of people getting instructions directly from the president to hold up on the sending of the funds. That would justify holding onto the articles of impeachment because there’s new evidence and perhaps new articles.”
This line of reasoning quickly falls apart.
The emails don’t provide any evidence to support the Democrats’ baseless allegations the President froze the aid to pressure Ukraine to conduct investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden.
They don’t change the fact the aid was released or that Ukraine did not conduct any of the supposed investigations Trump wanted.
All they did was confirm what everyone already knew: that military aid to Ukraine was held up.
Fox is the number one rated cable news channel because viewers trust they are getting the news and not spin.
That is not the case with Fox’s impeachment coverage.
