Tucker Carlson did some digging and found more embarrassing materials that call into question the Democrats and their impeachment inquiry.
The Democrats want President Trump impeached over allegedly asking for help from a foreign country in an election.
Tucker did not buy the hype and believes while Trump’s request may not have been the best thing to do it is not even close to being an impeachable offense.
Tucker’s point is that world leaders make all kinds of deals – that is basically the job so we must be very careful when we throw stones from glass houses.
Also, we should all remember the Clinton/Gore Chinese money scandal the Democrats have conveniently forgotten – it is illegal to take money or help from foreigners in a campaign and it looks like Bill did both.
From Fox News:
On his show Monday, Tucker Carlson discussed a transcript of a call between former President Bill Clinton and then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair — the same year as the election pitting Clinton’s vice president, Al Gore, against George W. Bush — during which the ex-president asked his British counterpart for a political favor.
“You’ve heard endlessly on cable news that it is unprecedented the president would seek political gain from a conversation with a foreign leader. Well, turns out, it has happened before,” Carlson said.
“Back in 2000, President Bill Clinton had a conversation with Tony Blair of the U.K. and asked him to intercede in a dispute between British Airways and two carriers. The president, at the time, was much more direct than President Trump was in his conversation.
“This is Bill Clinton, and I’m quoting: ‘In a political season, it would be big over here to get this open sore resolved. If you could have somebody take a look at it.’ Tony Blair responded that he would.”
Carlson continued: “Now, is this a big deal? Not really. Is it nakedly political? Is it an attempt to use a foreign country to influence the outcome of an election in a presidential year? Yes it is, obviously.
“Incidentally, it didn’t take long for us to find that, we only had to dig through old Clinton transcripts for about 15 minutes… there are probably a lot more examples, and if we find them we will bring them to you.”
