Former President Donald Trump was just publicly attacked and millions of supporters are stunned by it. The incident was on national television.
In a fiery back and forth, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace accused Trump of “witness tampering” during the January 6 phone call with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“Has the president ever reached out to you since that report came out to discuss what you and he talked about in the January 6 phone call and did you say to him ‘I can’t because we are under oath?'” asked Wallace.
McCarthy responded, “No.” Wallace pressed again. “Never happened. Never even close,” said McCarthy. At that point, you would think that Wallace would relent — but then he got vicious instead.
“And if it did happen, you would agree that would be witness tampering?” asked Wallace. McCarthy responded that it would be, but that he “has never heard that rumor before today.”
It would seem that Wallace is still taking cues from MSNBC and CNN, attempting to turn the phone call between Trump on McCarthy on January 6 (about the Capitol riot) into a major scandal.
