During a Fox News segment this Monday morning, a panel of commentators discussed the media’s alleged role in pushing for an impeachment of President Trump, and whether or not Democrats are rushing towards a vote on articles of impeachment. At one point, America’s Newsroom host Bill Hemmer turned towards Fox News Political Editor Chris Stirewalt and said that there’s “no record” of the allegations against Trump and his apparent pressuring of the Ukrainian government to investigate his political rivals.
“It’s just lawmakers coming on the microphone and giving their spin, be it right or left,” Hemmer said.
But Stirewalt disagreed, saying that it’s more than just a matter of partisan spin.
“There is a record for those committees even if they meet without television cameras present,” Stirewalt responded.
“We are early in this process, number one,” he said. “Number two, the whistleblower doesn’t matter anymore. … The whistleblower is substantially irrelevant. The President confessed on television — he said, ‘I did it,’ and then he added China to it, which sort of obviates the question about is there a whistleblower, isn’t there a whistleblower.”
“The press needs stuff every day to feed the bulldog,” he continued. “Every day you gotta make a living out there, and every day you need something to try to move this story forward, but right now, it all looks pretty simple. There are enough Democrats to vote to impeach the President … and they’re gonna impeach him on something that’s pretty straightforward.”

GOP’s Susan Collins faces tough re-election fight as support plummets following vote to acquit Trump
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, appears to be facing the toughest election of her career, with her support plummeting in a new poll.
Collins is in a virtual tie with Maine Speaker of the House Sara Gideon, one of four Democrats running to face the GOP incumbent, according to a new Colby College poll first reported by The Wall Street Journal. Gideon leads the Democratic field in the poll by more than 50% and is the overwhelming favorite to face the Republican in November.
Sanders hits Bloomberg with ‘grotesque’ statistic: Billionaire owns more wealth than bottom 125 million Americans combined
"That's wrong. That's immoral. That should not be the case when we got half a million people sleeping out on the street."
On the Democratic presidential debate stage in Las Vegas Wednesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders cited a striking statistic to show just how "grotesque" billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg's level of wealth is, particularly in a nation struggling to combat homelessness, the student debt crisis, and other major issues.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.
The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.
"I think for Democratic professionals who saw this guy as their political savior to save them from Bernie Sanders, they had to be disappointed last night because he was bad in politics 101," Scarborough said. "They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."
