January 29th, 2020 10:15 AM
While anchors and analysts on MSNBC had nothing but praise for anyone involved in the prosecution accusations that President Trump is unfit for office and should immediately be removed, these same liberals have had nothing but contempt and ridicule for the people who sought to defend the Republican occupant of the White House.

Hypocritical ‘News’ Media Have Done Complete Flip-Flop on Impeachment
January 20th, 2020 10:00 AM
It doesn’t take a skilled code-breaker to figure out the liberal networks’ stance on President Donald Trump’s impeachment: There’s no doubt we need witnesses if the Senate is going to conduct a fair trial; impeachment is necessary to prove that nobody — not even the President — is above the law; and there’s no more pressing task for Congress if we’…

Along with their over-the-top nonsense about the perils of not impeaching and removing President Trump, panelists on Tuesday’s Hardball argued that President Bill Clinton shouldn’t have been impeached because, unlike the Ukraine phone call, the crimes he committed never hurt anyone and didn’t harm the country in any way whatsoever.
