The mainstream media has been highly effective in pushing the progressive talking points when it comes to impeachment, that’s for sure.
The liberal slant that we see on television these days has been brainwashing the nation. We see new polls seemingly every day that purport to show that Donald Trump is inching ever closer to finding himself impeached over a July 25th phone call to Ukraine.
Of course, it should be reiterated that President Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the matter, and immediately released a memorandum of the phone call in question in a bid for transparency.
Still, the left pushes their UkraineGate conspiracy – an apparent sequel to the box office flop RussiaGate, starring Robert Mueller.
The media’s efficacy on the subject has been unflappable, with their coverage of the impeachment “inquiry” pushing a great many Americans over the edge.
Consider former Ohio Governor John Kasich among the converts.
Kasich said it was White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitting there was a quid pro quo between the United States and Ukraine that “pushed me really across the Rubicon.”
During a rare White House press briefing, Mulvaney told reporters on Thursday, “Did (Trump) also mention to me in passing the corruption related to the DNC server? Absolutely… That’s it. That’s why we held up the money,” acknowledging the White House had frozen military aid as leverage over Ukraine.
“Withholding military aid, vital military aid to a nation like Ukraine, which has Russian troops inside its territory, that’s threatened all the time, withholding it so that a political operation can take place – ‘investigate this thing around the server, and we’re going to withhold the aid until you do that’ – to me, it’s totally inappropriate. It’s an abuse of power.” Kasich said during an interview on CNN.
Kasich has long been a critic of President Trump, and appears almost nightly throughout the infotainment industry’s primetime lineups.
The former Governor and 2016 Republican candidate for President has claimed that the decision has come with “great sadness”.
