On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, Senior Editors Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi discuss the testimony of former FBI director James Comey, the calls for Trump’s impeachment, and other media hysterias.
“Now we know, based on Comey’s own testimony that even Comey admits there was no Russia probe into Donald Trump,” Hemingway said. “It also shows, through his own testimony, that Comey was really trying to make Donald Trump think he was Donald’s Trump buddy…and doing everything in his power to undermine Donald Trump when he was speaking publicly.”
The term “whataboutism” often gets thrown around as a logical fallacy, especially when comparing Trump to Obama. “I think it’s important to look at the presidency as a continuum. To see what these abuses have meant and what people have done in the past,” Harsanyi said. “I don’t think there is any problem in talking about the past.”
