Chris Wallace Gets Chippy On Fox About Impeachment

On Fox News on Monday, Chris Wallace gave it to the blonde of the moment, Katie Pavlich, telling her to get her “facts straight” before anchor Bret Baier intervened between the two with “tone it down.”

The argument was over new witnesses in the impeachment trial, with Pavlich crying foul on the process.

“The Senate is not the House, the House did not come with a complete case, and every impeachment beforehand, the witnesses that were called had been called in the House before being brought to the Senate,” Pavlich argued.

“That’s not true. That’s not true,” Wallace interjected. “They hadn’t all been called in the House. In the Clinton impeachment, they’d been called by the independent counsel. They had not been called by the House.”…

“Katie, what you’re saying just isn’t true. The fact is that the whistleblower information was given to the inspector general, who gave it to the Justice Department. The Justice Department decided not to investigate, and that is why it went to the House,” Wallace said. 

“So to say that in the Clinton investigation that these people were interviewed by the House, one, they weren’t, and to say it wasn’t done by the Justice … it wasn’t done by the Justice Department, because the Justice Department refused to carry out the investigation. Get your facts straight!” Wallace said.

This was at The Hill.
