Tuesday during Fox News Channels’ impeachment trial coverage, anchor Chris Wallace praised Democratic House impeachment managers’ opening argument for former President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
“I thought it was a very powerful opening,” Wallace said. “It had a lot of substance to it. It had a lot of technological slickness to it. The video of the events of January 6. The use of graphics to make the point about what’s in the Constitution. The historical precedent. I thought what was particularly in a legal, as opposed to the emotional side, in a very strict legal argument. I thought Joe Neguse, the congressman from Colorado, made a particularly strong argument. What he did, he took a conservative legal philosophy, originalism, textualism, read the Constitution exactly as it was written, and used that against the president.”
He continued, “I thought his close was very strong. ‘What happened on January 6,’ he said, ‘is the framers’ worst nightmare come to life,’ and that a president can’t enflame insurrection and run away. You are going to hear this over and over again — ‘January exception.’ The idea that a president commit crimes, allegedly, and then leave office, and somehow he’s thereby off the hook.”

It’s a farce. I’m amazed anybody is watching, but I guess that’s his job.
Chrissy the Commie. What an America-hating PIG!!!
Shut up, Wall-ass.
He’s not doing it because it’s his job.
Too bad nobody but Chrissy is watching.
that boy will never get over his daddy issues.
He’s a career liar.
Yet another reason Fox “news” is about to roll up.
I’m appalled anyone is watching. I sincerely hope Pres. Trump devotes the coming years to developing media that counteracts the current propaganda machine.
Name the crimes with the evidence, Chrissie.
Wallace doesn’t bother as much since I stopped watching FNC.
Chris Wallace is a traitor and liar and deserves the fate reserved for treason.
Wallace’s job is to support the democrats.
President Donald J Trump made him look like a biased fool during the debates.
He’s a democrat mouthpiece.
The media is a biased arm of the democrat party .
“...’January exception.’ The idea that a president commit crimes, allegedly, and then leave office, and somehow he’s thereby off the hook.”
Sorry, but I don’t buy this argument. If actual crimes were committed by Trump (and I have seen zero evidence of him inciting anyone to violence), then he can be prosecuted in criminal court. Other remedies are available besides impeachment.
