Why is Chris Wallace of Fox News allowing his hatred for President Donald Trump to destroy his reputation and his career?

This man was once a well-respected and “fair and balanced” journalist.

To me, he now looks like a dancing bear for the Democrats; he’s putting his biased anti-Trump spin on everything.

Wednesday’s impeachment hearing was a disaster for Democrats, mainly for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, in my opinion.

Forget that the spectacle was pointless and a waste of money and time.

The real issue is that Democrats have nothing — nada, zip, zilch — on President Trump.

They’re wasting Americans’ time and money by parading in front of us a bunch of partisan bureaucrats who are angry Trump changed the direction of American foreign policy — and they’re lashing out with their opinions on the matter.

I am sorry, but that’s not how the impeachment process works or should work.

Liberals — still hurt that their choice for the White House lost the 2016 election — can’t subvert the law and impeach a duly elected president simply because their political hearts were broken.

However, where we are currently in this country  — and people like Chris Wallace can’t seem to report objectively any longer.

That is the only explanation for why a so-called newsman who watched the same hearing that we did would come away thinking Trump was “damaged” by Wednesday’s proceedings.

Check this out from The Hill on Wednesday:

“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace called the testimony to the House Intelligence Committee of William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat to Ukraine, “very damaging to President Trump” during impeachment hearings analysis early Wednesday afternoon.

Taylor testified around Trump’s urging of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden as the first witness chosen by House Democrats to testify.

“I think that William Taylor was a very impressive witness and was very damaging to the president,” Wallace said, while cautioning that questioning by GOP House members [might later] change his initial perspective.

“He took very copious notes at almost every conversation — when he put quotes in his opening statement, he said those were direct quotes from what was said. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a voice like Edward R. Murrow,” Wallace added.

“He is a pretty impressive presence up there. And, I think, very nonpolitical,” Wallace noted.

“He went out of his way to talk about what he knew, what he was specifically testament to. The only thing he talked about was a strong feeling that it was in the U.S. national security interest to support Ukraine in the fight against Russia. But he certainly wasn’t taking any partisan position.” (source: The Hill)
