Wow, CNN Admits Democrats Lied About Trump’s Ukraine Call?

Image result for cnn liar

In order to impeach the president, Democrats have to lie about the facts. It has now come to the point where even CNN is calling the Democrats out on their lies. 

Two Democratic representatives from Texas, Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee, both lied during debate on articles of impeachment on Thursday about what President Trump said during his phone call to the president of Ukraine.

Rep. Escobar said President Trump told President Zelensky, “I want you to do me a favor though.” 

Rep. Jackson Lee quoted Trump saying, “I would like you to do a favor though.”

What Trump actually said was “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.” The full quote makes it clear that Trump was asking the president of Ukraine to do “our country” a favor.

Dems Veronica Escobar and Jackson Lee purposely misquoted my call. I said I want you to do us (our Country!) a favor, not me a favor. They know that but decided to LIE in order to make a fraudulent point! Very sad.87.1K7:40 AM – Dec 12, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy40.5K people are talking about this

Even CNN had to admit the president was right (Via CNN):

President Trump alleged that Democratic Reps. Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson Lee “purposely misquoted” his call with the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in a Tweet this morning.

Facts First: Trump is correct that the call was misquoted during today’s debate over the articles of impeachment in the House Judiciary committee.

In the declassified memo of the July 25 phone call between Trump and President Zelensky, the President says, “I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot.”

Of course, the headline CNN used, “Fact check: Trump says Democrats misquoted his call. He’s correct,” has a lot less vitriol than other CNN headlines like, “Lies, lies, lies: How Trump’s fiction gets more dramatic over time.” But at least they got the facts right this time. 

CNN Carried Only 33% of Horowitz Hearing, But Had 99% of Impeachment Hearing!

On Wednesday night, NewsBusters examined the live coverage from the top three cable news networks (CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC) devoted to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing featuring Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on his report on the Russia probe and, most notably, far-left, pro-impeachment CNN only covered live 33.4 percent of the hearing.

But when it came time for Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, CNN reminded us why they need a lesson on idiolatry and find things to care about besides hating Trump. All told, they carried 99.9 percent of the primetime House Judiciary Committee hearing on Articles of Impeachment, which amounted to all but nine seconds.

In contrast on the Horowitz hearing, MSNBC stepped up to the plate and carried 89 percent of it live while FNC was just behind at 88.7 percent. For CNN, perhaps it stemmed from the fact that it didn’t feature their favorite Democrats like Congressman Adam Schiff (CA).

Using C-SPAN’s gavel-to-gavel coverage, the hearing lasted roughly 320 minutes and 37 seconds, but the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN dipped in for only 106 minutes and 56 seconds.

Instead, CNN ignored Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham’s opening statement and didn’t join the hearing until 10:57 a.m. Eastern in the midst of Horowitz’s opening statement. CNN took a six-minute commercial break at 11:50 a.m. Eastern and rejoined the hearing until its pause for lunch.

Inside Politics and CNN Right Now filled their airtime with their predictably pro-FBI and anti-Trump spin until rediscovering the hearing at 1:48 p.m. Eastern. 

At 2:11 p.m. Eastern, CNN Newsroom’s Brooke Baldwin bailed in order to counteract any and all Republican arguments with liberal CNN legal analyst Elie Honig and former Jim Comey flack/CNN analyst Josh Campbell.

CNN then refused to return live to the hearing until Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) took her turn. Once Harris’s time expired, Baldwin left the hearing for a final time and CNN never returned (despite there being 38 minutes left).

As alluded to above, FNC and MSNBC took this hearing seriously. In the case of MSNBC, it must have been painful for them to do something so noble.

MSNBC started seconds after Graham began speaking and stayed until part way through his opening statement. The Beat’s Ari Melber interjected to react with a panel of fellow lefties for about 20 minutes before turning it back over to the hearing.

From that point on, MSNBC carried the rest of the hearing until 4:00 p.m. Eastern when TDS sufferer Nicolle Wallace couldn’t take it anymore and began her show Deadline: White House.

FNC carried all but a few seconds of the morning session and the afternoon session until 2:18 p.m. Eastern when The Daily Briefing host Dana Perino took viewers to a press conference with law enforcement officials in Jersey City, New Jersey concerning Tuesday’s deadly shooting at kosher grocery store. 

Perino brought in a panel for reaction to the latest developments there and returned to the hearing at 2:44 p.m. Eastern. 

Following that break, FNC stuck with Horowitz’s testimony and questioning from Senators of both parties until its conclusion just after 4:15 p.m. Eastern. https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/curtis-houck/2019/12/11/cnn-carried-only-33-horowitz-hearing-had-99-impeachment-hearing

CNN Did Not Air Lindsey Graham’s Opening Remarks In FISA Abuse Hearing Live

CNN did not air Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) opening statement live during the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on the Department of Justice Inspector General’s Report on FISA abuse.

Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, laid out what the FBI did in order to obtain their FISA warrants against people associated with President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Instead of airing his opening remarks live, “CNN Newsroom With Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto” had four commercial breaks, a panel with CNN’s National Security Analyst Susan Hennessey and Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur about impeachment, a panel with CNN’s Justice Correspondent Jessica Schneider and former Assistant Director of the FBI’s Office of Congressional Affairs Greg Bower, an interview with Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY), and a segment reporting on a whistleblower raising concerns about Boeing’s 737 Super Max planes.

Almost 40 minutes into the hearing, CNN did air a 15-second clip of Graham stating how the Russians are meddling in America’s election. In the same 9:00 A.M. time slot on Monday, CNN aired Rep. Jerry Nadler’s (D-NY) full opening statement during the House Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing.

Fox News aired Graham’s opening statement in full, with MSNBC airing most of it live. CNN did not respond to a request for comment in time for publication.

The Trump campaign and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel criticized the network for not airing Graham’s remarks despite airing Democrats’ comments in full.

CNN aired everything Schiff & Nadler had to say. Why aren’t they showing @LindseyGrahamSC? Is it because the facts of how the FBI mistreated @realDonaldTrump contradict their coverage over the last 3 years? https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1204780316101152768?s=20 …Steve Guest@SteveGuestAfter giving their air time COMPLETELY over to Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff for the past few weeks, CNN IS NOT AIRING the start of the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on Horowitz’s IG report. #StopTheMadness3,5577:38 AM – Dec 11, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy2,387 people are talking about this
