Fox News is often accused of being biased towards the right.
Yet, if that were true, then there’s no way they’d feature guests whose opinions were completely opposite of theirs.
And recently, FOX put something on the air that will leave you speechless.
Which is saying something because FOX news has some of the best journalists in the business.
A few weeks after Robert Mueller finally admitted he wasn’t going to able to bring charges against President Trump, FOX News host Bret Baier had a top Democrat on his show.
Baier brought House representative David Cicilline on to ask him what he thought about the President and whether he thought Trump should be charged with any crimes.
Cicilline is no stranger to controversy, either. An openly gay, Italian Jew from the state of Rhode Island, the congressman was embroiled in financial scandals before he was first elected to Congress back in 2011.
Serving as mayor of Providence, Rhode Island before his election, Cicilline was shown to be almost criminally negligent in handling budget issues that wound up costing the city millions upon millions of dollars.
Which is why when he came on Fox, you’d expect him to have a little compassion for the President. Especially considering the fact that there’s no evidence Trump has done anything criminal.
But that’s not what happened.
Instead, Cicilline said he didn’t just want President Trump removed from office via impeachment, he wanted him taken to jail.
Baier had asked Cicilline how he responded to Pelosi’s comments about Trump going to prison.
“So you agree with Speaker Pelosi?” Baier asked him, inquiring specifically about how Pelosi had said, “I don’t want to see him impeached. I want to see him in prison.”
Cicilline said he did.
When Baier inquired why he thought that, Cicilline went over the same things the Mueller report already discussed.
He said that Trump’s behavior during the special investigation merited criminal charges. In particular, he took issue with Trump’s direction of the AG to limit Mueller’s special investigation as reason enough to have him locked up and the key thrown away.
Baier correctly restated that despite publishing these details, Robert Mueller still didn’t believe he had the power to charge Trump with anything criminal and that current Attorney General William Barr agreed with Mueller’s findings.
Cicilline doubled down and said that Trump should be held responsible for what he did and should spend time in federal prison.
Which is just like the Democrats, even though there’s not enough evidence to convict, they still want Trump to go to jail.
This is why Pelosi is leading a charge to get Trump outfitted with an orange jumpsuit, it’s why the liberal media won’t let this story go, and it’s also why President Trump has asked William Barr (who’s asked John Durham) to investigate Mueller’s team.
Because Trump, like many, believes that this is nothing more than a classic witch hunt.
And comments like Cicilline’s, Pelosi’s, and the rest of the Democrats in Congress prove that to be true. They don’t care about evidence; they just want a political enemy like Trump to be dealt with once and for all.
