Impeachment talk is swirling around Washington.
Democrats and fake news reporters popped champagne corks about a smoking gun that would force Donald Trump from office.
And then Fox News aired one report that changed Trump’s Presidency in this unexpected way.
Democrats and the fake news media declared a so-called “whistleblower’s” complaint that Donald Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter for corruption or else risk losing out on $250 million in military aide which dominated Washington.
Fake news Washington Post “analyst” Dan Balz claimed this constituted an abuse of power.
Presidential frontrunner Elizabeth Warren demanded Congress ‘do their job’ and impeach President Trump.
But just like in the Russian collusion hoax, the Democrats’ impeachment fever broke under the strain of the facts.
Fox News correspondent Ed Henry appeared on Martha MacCallum’s program and he reported that a White House official told him that it was in the President’s best interest to release the transcript of the July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Henry told MacCallum that his source informed him the transcript would show there was no “there there.”
“I’ve got some new information tonight about a July phone call between the president of the United States and his Ukrainian counterpart that’s at the center of this controversy,” Henry told McCallum. “Details suggesting Democrats and pundits in the media may be overreaching. A senior administration official familiar with the transcript of that call told me it is way overblown to suggest there was any threat at all to national security. This top official saying ‘The media better be careful with this. There is no there there. It’s in the president’s interest to put the transcript of the call out and show there was no quid pro quo.’”
Henry continued explaining that releasing the transcript of the President’s call would show he never threatened to withhold Ukraine’s military aide and that there was no quid pro quo discussed.
“So here’s the point, that ‘Wall Street journal’ scoop you mentioned – the ‘Washington Post’ also has a report on this tonight – they both say the president did not, basically, mention foreign aid on the phone call in July, there was no quid pro quo that basically, we will give you the money if you open up this Biden investigation, and that may be why this senior official in the Trump administration is telling me today, the White House should simply release the transcript, Martha, because this official believes having reviewed it, is going to be messy, maybe this isn’t the best thing to do but it didn’t break the law and it didn’t threaten national security. I don’t know, I haven’t seen the transcript, but that is what I’m hearing from this administration official,” Henry added.
After the Russian collusion hoax imploded and the Democrat investigations into the administration ran into a dead end, this whistleblower complaint dropped into the Democrats’ laps like manna from Heaven.
But once again the Democrats overreached and tried to manufacture an impeachment scandal out of fake news.
