It’s like a bad addiction. The mainstream media — the same mainstream media that couldn’t do enough to bury even the hint of scandal during the eight years that Barack Obama was president — is now so narrowly obsessed with impeaching Donald Trump that the TV news organizations are including an impeachment watch.
Since the Washington Post’s report Monday that President Trump shared classified information with the Russian ambassador during an Oval Office meeting last week, the major media seems to smell blood in the water. Over the last 24 hours, almost every interview with Democratic politicians has included a question about whether we’re getting closer to impeaching the president.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer is leading the charge, bringing up impeachment three separate times Tuesday evening alone.
During an interview with Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) about a New York Times report alleging Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the agency’s investigation into General Michael Flynn, Blitzer asked hopefully, “Are we getting closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment?”
Blitzer also flatly told Sen. King that if the Times’ report is accurate, it’s “an impeachable offense,” not even phrasing the statement as a question.
Moments later, Blitzer asked Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) if the New York Times report would provide enough ammunition for impeachment proceedings against Trump. “Is that impeachable if it is an obstruction of justice?” Blitzer asked.
And that’s just Tuesday night.
As the montage above shows, many in the media are frequently attempting to bait their Democratic guests into calling for impeachment proceedings.
