The public hearing phase of the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt is all wrapped up.
Now it’s up to Congress to assess the fallout.
And Fox News made this shocking prediction about Donald Trump resigning.
Fox News’ coverage of the impeachment charade is the most closely watched on all of cable news.
Democrats think if the hosts and guests on Fox turn on the President, then GOP voters will support impeachment.
The left’s hopes perked up after European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that he believed there was quid pro quo linking a White House visit for the Ukrainian President to investigations into Joe and Hunter Biden.
After Sondland’s testimony, former Whitewater Special Prosecutor Ken Starr claimed on Fox News that this revelation severely damaged Donald Trump and that it was time for GOP Senators to begin considering asking Donald Trump to resign.
“The real issue is the senators are watching,” Starr told the Fox News audience. “Are senators going to now say in light of what we hear today, it’s going to be a long day even with the ambassador alone, in light of what we have heard, ‘We need to make a trip down to the White House’? That historic example set during the Nixon presidency. From what I’ve been able to glean I don’t think that’s going to happen. But obviously what happens today could—has the potential to be a game-changer.”
Starr was referencing the now-famous White House meeting between Richard Nixon and Arizona Senator – and 1964 GOP Presidential nominee – Barry Goldwater where Goldwater told the President he had lost all Republican support in the Senate and he would be convicted on the articles of impeachment Democrats in the House of Representatives drafted.
Nixon resigned shortly thereafter.
But during Watergate, Richard Nixon’s public support plunged in the 20 percent range.
During this impeachment witch hunt, Donald Trump’s approval rating is rising.
And polls show Americans across the country – and in key battleground states like Wisconsin – are increasingly opposing impeachment.
The political environment in 1974 is nowhere near comparable to 2019.
Viewers could not understand what Starr was thinking when he offered this supposed “analysis.”
Sondland’s testimony later collapsed when Ohio Republican Mike Turner forced Sondland to admit there wasn’t a single person on earth that told him there was a quid pro quo.
But the damage was done.
Liberal reporters rocketed Starr’s quotes across social media to try and build the narrative that the walls were closing in on President Trump because even Fox News speculated that it might be time for Donald Trump to consider resignation.
Many Fox News viewers concluded Starr’s outrageous claims were part of a top-down mandate from Fox News to shift their coverage to be more like CNN during Fox’s “news hours.”
In addition to Starr, lead anchor Chris Wallace and legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano regularly parrot Adam Schiff’s talking points and make all sorts of false allegations about Donald Trump with regards to this fake Ukraine scandal.
