Fox News‘ Chris Wallace’s anti-Trump bias was on full display on Sunday as he reported that former U.S. attorney Joe DiGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing, have been working with Giuliani to dig up opposition research on Joe Biden. Wallace’s contempt for President Trump, Giuliani, DiGenova and Toensing was unmistakable as he spoke. One can easily imagine Wallace as the schoolyard snitch in his younger days. Anyway, he said:
We have new information to report. Fox News has learned that President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, was not acting alone in trying to get dirt from Ukrainian officials on 2020 rival Joe Biden. Two high profile Washington lawyers, Joe DiGenova, who’s been a fierce critic of the Democratic investigation, and his wife, Victoria Toensing, were working with Giuliani to get oppo research on Biden. According to a top U.S. official, all three were working off the books apart from the administration. The only person who knows what they were doing is President Trump. Fox News has also learned the Pentagon, the State Department, and the National Security Counsel were unanimous in supporting military aid to Ukraine. President Trump decided to withhold that aid this summer on his own.
That’s quite a story Chris. Why is it wrong for Trump’s lawyers to investigate “Quid Pro” Joe Biden and his son Hunter? Why does Chris Wallace and the rest of the establishment media continue protect them? Do they find it appropriate for a U.S. Vice President to leverage U.S. aid for personal reasons? Do they believe it was advisable for Hunter to profit off of his father’s position? The Bidens aren’t the victims in this story.
My favorite commentator, the fabulous Mark Levin, weighed in on Wallace’s report. Here’s what he had to say:
You haven’t once asked for the identity of the whistleblower. Why is that?…If this CIA operative is going to be the one who brings down my President, I want to know all about him. I want to know what kind of dogs they have, how many marriages they’ve had, if they have a DUI, I want to know if they’re a partisan. I want to know everything, like they do with everybody else, the media. This guy should be cross-examined. What kind of a situation is this, we’re going to bring down a President of the United States and the Democrats are telling us we can’t identify this guy because his life might be in danger?
Everybody swings around this memo, like it’s the Bible. I have a lot of questions about this memo. I don’t need press people interpreting it for me. I can read it myself. I want to question this person about his memo.
Why is it that the CIA changed its whistleblower policy in August, when this letter is dated August 12th? Under the former policy before August, he’s not a whistleblower. This isn’t a whistleblower complaint and nothing sent to the United States Congress. How does it happen like this?
Ed Henry asks, “What happened in the Oval Office on that call? Was it illegal or not?
Well, we know it’s not illegal. What crime was violated? Can you name one?…It’s not illegal. The President didn’t do anything illegal. The question is whether Biden did something illegal.
The President didn’t do anything illegal. You know how I know? Because Nancy Pelosi’s been on every talk show and she can’t site one section in the United States code where it’s illegal.
My question is: Why is Joe Biden above the law?
