    Fox News Anchor Chris Wallace Tears Into Conservative Pundit: ‘Get Your Facts Straight!’

    Sparks flew Monday on the Fox News set between Fox News anchor Chris Wallace and conservative contributor Katie Pavlich, with Wallace demanding his colleague get her “facts straight” after Pavlich insisted that certain witnesses had not been called in the impeachment trial.Moments before President Donald Trump’s defense team began its arguments in the Senate impeachment trial, Pavlich noted during Fox’s pretrial coverage that while Republican senators are now weighing whether to call former National Security Adviser John Bolton following his bombshell claims, the House should have presented a more thorough case.“The Senate is not the House, the House did not come with a complete case, and every impeachment beforehand, the witnesses that were called had been called in the House before being brought to the Senate,” she insisted. “So there are questions here about the process.”“That’s not true, that’s not true," Wallace interrupted. “They hadn’t all been called in the House, and in the Clinton impeachment, they’d been called by the general independent counsel. They had not been called by the House.”After Pavlich claimed that was due to an “extensive Justice Department investigation,” Wallace agreed but pointed out that she was “just wrong” to claim that all impeachment witnesses were previously called by the House.“Let me finish. Before the articles were sent to the House, the grand jury material in the Clinton impeachment were handed to the House as part of the articles and given to the Senate,” the right-wing pundit said. “They were not given after the House voted for those articles. That is the difference. The process does matter.”Kellyanne Conway Melts Down Under Grilling by Fox NewsAs anchor Bret Baier attempted to have Wallace give his “final thoughts,” the Fox News Sunday host—who has a history of tangling with the network’s opinion personalities—continued to highlight that what Pavlich said “just isn’t true.”“The fact of the matter is that the whistleblower information was given to the inspector general, who gave it to the Justice Department,” Wallace declared, clearly perturbed. “The Justice Department decided not to investigate, and that is why it went to the House.”“So to say that in the Clinton investigation these people were interviewed by the House, one, they weren’t,” he continued. “And to say it wasn’t done by the Justice Department, because the Justice Department refused to carry out the investigation. Get your facts straight!”“Okay, let’s tone it down,” Baier jumped in.Wallace tearing into a pro-Trump Fox News contributor came just moments after he said on-air that the news that Bolton claims Trump told him that Ukrainian military aid was frozen unless Ukraine investigated the Bidens was obviously big news since Trump supporters were “spinning like crazy” afterward.Fox News Host Hits Trump for Attacking Chris Wallace: You’re ‘Not Entitled to Praise’Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

    MacKenzie Bezos, Amazon CEO’s ex-wife, sells $400M in stock after pledge to give away billions

    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, has sold off about $400 million worth of the Amazon stock she received as part of the couple's divorce settlement — potentially providing the wherewithal for the charitable activities she's planning. Word of the sale came indirectly, in an end-of-year filing that Jeff Bezos made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing notes that the Amazon CEO exercises sole voting authority over nearly 19.5 million Amazon shares that he doesn't have the sole power to dispose of. That matches the stake that MacKenzie Bezos holds — and CNBC notes it's about 200,000… Read More

    George Conway suggests Trump's impeachment lawyers knew exactly what was in Bolton's book

    President Trump's impeachment defenders may have known the John Bolton bombshell was coming.After Sunday's report indicating Bolton's forthcoming book would allege Trump blatantly suggested withholding aid from Ukraine, Democrats have only strengthened their calls for a Bolton impeachment testimony, and some Republicans have drifted to their side. A Bolton testimony would be "devastating to Trump" — and his lawyers' opening arguments show they expected it all along, George Conway argues in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday. Conway is the husband of Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway and, unlike his wife, is constantly criticizing Trump and calling for his impeachment. He's been watching the Senate impeachment trial, and observed in his Post op-ed that so far, the president's lawyers have yet to mention the former national security adviser. "There's no need to speculate why," Conway wrote: "The news about what's in Bolton's forthcoming book is out — and it shows that his testimony would be devastating to Trump."The fact that Trump's defenders didn't bring up Bolton is further proof of Trump's wrongdoing, Conway continues to argue. "At least some members of the president's defense team have known exactly what Bolton would say if called to the stand," Conway theorizes: That Trump wanted to halt security assistance to Ukraine until it promised to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. "Quid. Pro. Quo," Conway succinctly sums it up.Read all of Conway's opinion at The Washington Post.More stories from theweek.com Mike Pompeo is a disgrace If Bernie wins John Bolton's quest for vengeance and book sales
