Fox News political editor frets over ‘real danger’ Democrats will impeach Trump if they take Congress in 2018

Published

Assuming he lasts that long, President Donald Trump is in danger of being impeached after the 2018 midterms if the Democrats take control on Congress, Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt warned on Tuesday.

With the White House reeling from two indictments handed down by special counsel Robert Mueller — and another aide pleading guilty to lying to the FBI — the Fox political analyst said that the Democrats see an opening to take Trump down if the GOP suffers huge losses in the next election.

Speaking with host Harris Faulkner, Stirewalt painted a portrait of a president under siege.

“There is real danger for the president lurking out there,” Stirewalt cautioned the Fox News host. “Republicans — if they lose control of Congress  — there is a very strong chance that Donald Trump will be impeached.”

“You think so?” a startled Fualkner asked.

“These are politicians,” the editor observer explained.“When Republicans impeached Bill Clinton I’m sure there were other things that the American people wished that they would have focused on, but they focused on satisfying a bloodthirsty base.”

He then speculated, “I’m sure there would be many calls among Democrats to do the same. And that is the real danger for Trump.”

Tribe has argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court and taught at Harvard Law for 50 years. He co-authored the 2018 book To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment with Joshua Matz.

"Everyone was in the loop, it was no secret. That was the testimony from Ambassador Gordon Sondland yesterday as he implicated the president, Secretary of State, White House chief of staff, and former National Security Advisor John Bolton and other administration officials in the plot to bribe the president of Ukraine to publicly launch an investigation into Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid to Ukraine that was authorized by Congress and that the president was withholding," O'Donnell reported.

Shep Smith blasts autocrats in first public remarks since leaving Fox News — and donates $500,000 to protect journalists

Published

on

On Thursday, for the first time since exiting Fox News, reporter Shepard Smith gave public comments at the International Press Freedom Awards — and used the occasion to blast autocratic leaders who use their power to suppress journalism.

"Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We don’t have to look far for evidence of that,” said Smith. "Our belief a decade ago that the online revolution would liberate us now seems a bit premature, doesn’t it? Autocrats have learned how to use those same online tools to shore up their power. They flood the world of information with garbage and lies, masquerading as news. There’s a phrase for that."
