There were two stories that spread like a brushfire regarding the Trump-Ukraine impeachment hearing today—and both of them were prime cut fake news. It was total nonsense. It exposed once again that the liberal media is terrible at covering this White House and why impeachment continues to be a story after multiple witnesses have undercut the entirety of the Democrats’ quid pro quo allegation that set off this whole circus. 

We have some whistleblower, who is a reported CIA agent and a registered Democrat alleged that President Trump threatened to withhold military aid unless the Ukrainians opened a corruption probe into Hunter Biden’s board position at Burisma. Oh, and this so-called whistleblower worked with a 2020 Democratic candidate and contacted Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) staff prior to filing the complaint. Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, knows this person. He’s lied about not having contact, so you know all of this is on the up-and-up and done to maintain the integrity of our institutions—yes, I’m being sarcastic. 

This quid pro quo allegation is even weaker than the Russian collusion myth. Yet, you’d never know that after Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin blasted out some fake news saying former special prosecutor Kenneth Starr said Sondland’s hearing shows there is proof that Trump committed bribery in a bombshell day. I’m paraphrasing, but she didn’t know Starr was merely citing Schiff’s opinion on the matter, something that he also mentioned. Griffin later deleted the tweet and offered a clarification, but those almost never get the attention as the initial post. 

Then, Associated Press tweeted that Trump “contradicted” Sondland by saying that he wanted “nothing” from Ukraine. Problem: that turned out to be true, Trump was quoting the testimony from his own ambassador. AP then deleted the tweet. It’s bad, folks. Trump Derangement Syndrome has so blinded the liberal media to the point where the only people they’re hurting is themselves with these antics. Democracy I guess can die in darkness if those who think they’re superheroes of the press consistently act like idiots. It’s pathetic.
