Even Fox News Thinks Trump Could Be Guilty Of Witness Intimidation During Impeachment Hearings

The testimony of key Ukraine scandal witness Marie Yovanovitch “turned on a dime” thanks to Donald Trump’s tweets, according to Fox News’ Bret Baier.

During today’s impeachment hearing, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff stopped the questioning of the witness to read Donald Trump’s latest tweet about her out loud to her and asked for her response. She called the president’s words “very intimidating.”

Even Baier had to admit that Trump may have crossed the line into witness tampering, which is a serious crime for anybody and “adding essentially an article of impeachment in real time.”

“Some of us here take witness intimidation very, very seriously,” said Schiff.

Trump attacked Yovanovitch just after her opening remarks in a tweet saying that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky “spoke unfavorably about her” and that she screwed up everything she touched. Multiple experts and politicians, including Schiff, have called this “witness intimidation in real-time.”

Trump’s attack and Schiff’s reading of his tweet at the hearing “changed this entire dynamic of this first part of this hearing,” according to Baier, “and Republicans now are going to have to take the rest of this hearing to probably try to clean that up.”

Don’t you get tired of cleaning up after Trump, Republicans?

Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele, at least, is all the way done.

Baier wasn’t the only one on Fox News who was not on Trump’s side today. Chris Wallace lauded Yovanovitch’s testimony as so moving that if it didn’t affect you, “you don’t have a pulse,” and echoed Baier’s sentiments on possible witness intimidation.

At the same time, Fox News guest Ken Starr (of Clinton impeachment fame) called Trump’s tweet about Yovanovitch “extraordinarily poor judgment” and “quite injurious.”

Meanwhile, the left is blowing up.

How many impeachable offenses is that, now?
