When impeachment hearings began on Wednesday, Trump told the press, “I’m not watching it. It’s all a witch hunt.” We knew it was just another lie; we’ve come to expect them whenever his lips or thumbs are moving. On Friday, when former Ukraine Ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch, was testifying about Trump’s crimes, his little thumbs got busy.
Even FOX couldn’t handle this childish tantrum by the orange man. Adam Schiff stopped the hearings and read aloud Trump’s tweets, asking Ms.Yovanovitch if she would like to respond.
“This whole hearing turned on a dime when the president tweeted about her real time,” noted Fox anchor Brett Baier. “That enabled Schiff to then characterize that tweet as intimidating the witness or tampering with the witness, which is a crime. Adding essentially an article of impeachment real time.” In other words, Trump singlehandedly authored another article of impeachment. Wow, now that is some stunning straight talk on Fox.
Former special prosecutor, and FOX contributor, Ken Starr, spoke out about Trump’s ill-advised attacks.
“Extraordinarily poor judgement,” Starr remarked. “The president frequently says, ‘I follow my instincts.’ Sometimes we have to control our instincts, so obviously I think this is quite injurious.”
Once again, I ask, “how can anyone continue to support this self-admitted criminal?” The adjective “presidential” has never been applied to Donald Trump. He is a disgrace to his office and to our country. Trump must be impeached, and more importantly, the Senate must convict him and send him to federal prison. No one is above the law of the land.
