WASHINGTON — How is the Democrats' impeachment inquiry going to turn out? Well, we've already been through the impeachment inquiry, though it was called by another name. It was called the collusion inquiry, and it turned out as most conservatives said it was going to turn out. They said there was no evidence, and Robert Mueller, who conducted the official inquiry, found no evidence. By the way, I insist that Mueller is an honorable man. His service to the country was notable. In my opinion, he is a hero in this epic battle between President Donald Trump and the Democrats.
It’s been awhile since our last slideshow, NewsBusters readers. Thankfully, Tuesday’s Hardball on MSNBC came up clutch with reams of liberal nonsense from not just host Chris Matthews, but a cast of characters serving as yes men and women for this pro-impeachment pep rally. From leveling conspiracy theories to engaging in conspiracy theories, it was another case study in Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Back when reruns were a staple of summer programming, television networks aired repeats of their programs, giving viewers another opportunity to see what they had already seen. Democratic politicians are now conducting their own version of reruns. The same bunch who brought us the failed Russian “collusion” story, the sliming of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and charges that President Trump is a racist (which also failed, given the spectacular increase in minority employment), are now rerunning the same show with different characters.
Move over Robert Mueller, the liberal media have found a new love. With House Democrats announcing an impeachment inquiry against President Trump over his phone call with the president of Ukraine, the media promptly dropped the Special Counsel’s inconclusive Russia investigation in favor of the latest promise of Trump’s political downfall. Reporters even went so far as to admit Mueller’s two-year effort was a “confusing” and “convoluted” flop.
In a tweet that’s been so heavily ratio’d that it must make the disgraced Des Moines Register jealous, The New York Times Opinion Twitter account video-tweeted Thursday night a lame anti-Trump manifesto staged as a parody of the opening crawl to the Star Wars movies.
Estrella TV is normally known for its over-the-top, virulent coverage of all things pertaining to President Donald Trump. But as Impeachment Fever swaps the nation’s domestic Spanish-language media, Estrella has decided to asset some editorial independence.
Just as they were in their Wednesday morning special reports following the release of the transcript from the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, ABC and NBC were indignant and raging against the “unrepentant,” “untruthful” Trump following a press conference which they deemed to have been an incoherent mess.
Despite the fact that Lewandowski refused to answer a lion’s share of the questioning and squabbled with a few House Democrats on the Oversight Committee, the A-block panel on Tuesday’s Hardball somehow thought the proceedings were a wildly successful exercise for impeachment and shaming those not in the Resistance.
The NPR Politics Facebook page promoted their favorite Not-Actually-News story of the day on Thursday: "The Federal Elections Commission has proposed new rules that would further restrict foreign contributions to U.S. election campaigns — including the kind of "dirt" Russians offered the Trump campaign on Hillary Clinton." Reporter Philip Ewing admitted deep in the article "it probably won't advance." But anything liberals propose is news, apparently.
Robert De Niro, who portrayed a vigilant Robert Mueller many times on Saturday Night Live, claims that he was satisfied with the performance of the original last week before the two congressional hearings. However, you don't have to read very far into his Monday column in the Washington Post before you can figure out that he believes who could have done a better job by portraying a much edgier Mueller during the hearings than the real life rather disengaged Mueller.
President Trump has nominated Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe to replace Dan Coats as Director of National Intelligence and CNN's Jim Sciutto is not supportive. In addition to an alleged lack of experience, Sciutto condemned the "Trump loyalist" for being "a fierce critic of Robert Mueller’s handling investigation." On the Monday edition of CNN Newsroom, Sciutto confronted Utah Republican Chris Stewart about these concerns.
As the Mueller testimony unfolded last Wednesday, the Russian collusion narrative was exposed and shattered to the dismay of the very media who perpetuated it. The deflation on the faces of cable news hosts’ was evident as the day went on. Greg Gutfeld pinpointed this disappointment during his monologue on Friday’s The Five.
