Thursday morning marked the first official House committee hearing on the impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden. But on the network morning news shows, CBS Mornings refused to preview it while ABC’s Good Morning America lost its mind about the inquiry occurring “absent evidence,” of Biden wrongdoing with no “direct, concrete evidence” and “[n]o bank account, money transfer, overt act” tying Joe to his son’s life of ruin.
ABC co-host and former Clinton official George Stephanopoulos was apoplectic in a tease: “Just moments away, House Republicans holding their first impeachment inquiry into President Biden despite no evidence of impeachable offenses.”
After the initial wave of GOP debate coverage and Army Private Travis King returning to U.S. soil, senior national correspondent Terry Moran took his turn to spin for the Biden regime, huffing that “the Republican drive to impeach Joe Biden will begin in earnest officially” and will be “a solemn moment, but there is a problem.”
The problem, Moran explained, was that “[f]or months, Republicans have been digging, looking for direct, concrete evidence to back up those allegations,” but “they haven’t found any.”
“No — no bank account, money transfer, overt act that would show the link between Hunter Biden’s business dealings — corruptly — and Joe Biden’s personal accounts. Ne — nevertheless, they’re going to move forward,” he added.
Moran continued to spin, bragging about a “lack of connection” on investigating the Biden family inside the GOP given “there are a group of about a dozen — couple a dozen Republicans who have broken ranks” and “don’t support this effort”.
“Nevertheless, they will proceed,” he huffed.
After he closed by lamenting “partisan fireworks” are “certain,” Stephanopoulos angrily replied before moving on: “No question about that. But, of course, this is unprecedented. The first time we’ve ever had an impeachment inquiry absent evidence.”
Earth to Terry and George: Here’s some evidence. Then again, it still wouldn’t occur to them if it had knocked them off their feet like an avalanche.
NBC’s Today only gave the impeachment inquiry hearing a partial segment (44 seconds) tacked onto a discussion between co-host Savannah Guthrie and Capitol Hill correspondent Ryan Nobles about the looming government shutdown.
“Meanwhile, the House Republicans are still planning on doing their first hearing in their impeachment inquiry of President Biden. What do you expect there,” Guthrie asked.
Nobles explained the hearing will have “three expert witness” that “Republicans…invited…to piece together the information that the three committees investigating the President’s family have collected with the goal of attempting to try and establish a link between Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and the President himself.”
Like Moran and Stephanopoulos, Nobles told viewers there’s nothing to see here: “But, at this point, they’ve really yet to uncover that smoking gun that specifically makes that connection.”
