Now that anchor Shep Smith has left the Fox News Channel, it seems Chris Wallace is the network’s new anti-Donald Trump mouthpiece.
During an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, Wallace blasted pro-Trump Republicans who are complaining about the impeachment inquiry while dismissing concerns from White House adviser Kellyanne Conway.
Republicans stormed a closed-door impeachment hearing this week and are saying the impeachment probe is plagued by a lack of transparency.
“America’s Newsroom” anchor Sandra Smith played a clip of Conway on “Fox & Friends” this morning, asking, “Where’s the process?”
Wallace responded to the clip, saying, “My feeling is that if you are having trouble with the facts, you argue process. That’s what Republicans are doing right now.”
Wallace, appearing to take out his anger on Trump, then said, “The Democrats have gotten some very damaging information from people like William Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine; Fiona Hill, who used to be one of the top advisers of the National Security Council on Ukraine — evidence that seems to tie more of a quid pro quo, that there is some evidence from these people working in the Trump administration that the president linked aid to Ukraine, a White House meeting with Ukrainian president, to getting research on the Democrats.”

He concluded, “In the Benghazi investigation, there were private hearings and then there were public hearings. That’s what’s going to happen here.”
“I just think that in the end after we have these little must-see TV hearings with these key witnesses in public in November, I’m not sure people are going to care a lot about what the process was in October.”
