Conservative commentator Dan Bongino slammed the Democratic party for continuing to push for impeachment during an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
Bongino pointed out that the Mueller report made no determination on obstruction of justice, and that Democrats are attempting to continue pushing for impeachment.
“There was never anything there,” said Bongino. “They’re trying to fabricate an obstruction charge that doesn’t exist and they know it.”
John Dean, the former White House counsel for Richard Nixon, is testifying to Congress on Monday. Bongino claimed that it was a pointless hearing.
“That’s what we need to hear from another discredited former felon,” said Bongino. “I mean, the Democrats really rack it up on the winners list that they use for their character people … They don’t have anything, and this goes back to what they’re really doing.”
Dean is also an outspoken critic of President Trump, writing an op-ed in March in which he slammed the president.
“In fact, all Americans are affected by the growing authoritarianism that made Mr. Trump president,” Dean wrote for the New York Times. “These people who facilitated his rise will remain long after Mr. Trump is gone. We need to pay more attention.”
Bongino claimed that the hearings are a way to distract from the fact that the Mueller report is done and there is not enough evidence for impeachment.
“This whole charade they are engaging on this week in these impeachment hearings, it’s an act,” Bongino said. “What they are trying to do is distract you from the fact that the Mueller probe is completely collapsing its credibility.”
As IJR Red previously reported, many Democrats are hoping to push forward with impeachment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has, in the past, said she is against impeachment, but after recent arguments with the president, she is now meeting with Democratic lawmakers to discuss the possibility of impeachment.
