Among the bombshells overnight that have left Trump’s White House scrambling for answers are the allegations his campaign staff colluded with the Russian government to win the November election as well as the FBI totally discrediting Trump’s allegation that former president Barack Obama wiretapped his phone.

THE public inquiry into Donald Trump’s possible links to Russian meddling in the US election has only just begun, but in some quarters, the verdict is already in.
“You would have to say this is the worst and most perilous day of Donald Trump’s young Presidency,” CNN’s political analyst Gloria Borger concluded within hours of the House Intelligence hearings starting overnight.

I wonder how Fox sees this.

I wonder how NPR sees this.

I'd like to see some objective reporting about this.

If Nunes sees Trump and gang's activities as being worthy of investigation, I would start worrying for Trump's Presidency.

Are you implying that NPR is the equivalent of Fox?

I smell an impeachment in the near future. If it does happen, does Pence become president or will there be a new election and can we get rid of everyone Trump appointed especially DeVos and Pruitt?

New election? No, you'll just have 4-8 with Pence and I'm sure you'll find reason to hate him even more.

Not at all. I see Fox as relatively conservative, and NPR as relatively neutral.

Oh o.k. I would characterize Fox as more than just relatively conservative. Fox is the messaging arm of the conservative movement.

I have my problems with Politifact but this is still pretty telling.

If you get the chance and are interested I suggest you check out the film The Brainwashing of My Dad. It is actually a very good history of how Fox News started and how its biased and often false reporting effects it's viewers and even other news networks.

I can't really envision what type of collusion with the Russians could have tipped the voters in Trump's favor.

If the Trump campaign is guilty of colluding with the Russians than it stands to reason that Pence is equally guilty. He was the head of the transition team after all.

Jared Kushner met with Russian ambassador during transition, White House official says


Like I said, if Trump is guilty than so is Pence.
