ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos was interviewing President Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow when he was caught on camera using a throat-slash gesture to stop the interview of Sekulow.
He was presumably signaling to the ABC producers to scrap Sekulow’s comments on the impeachment trial.
It’s no secret that Stephanopoulos is a Clinton supporter and a leftist who has been masquerading as a journalist at ABC for years. His bias was showing today during the interview with Sekulow when the lawyer for President Trump made some good points. Sekulow was explaining that the president’s alleged actions aren’t impeachable when Stephanopoulos was caught doing the slashing motion with his hand:
“We’ve got lawyers that are going to be put forward when our side of the case goes, that represents multiple schools of thought on what is and what is not an impeachable offense. But they have one thing in common, that the actions alleged and the actions of the president do not reach that level. No matter what school of thought you’re on… our position is, you still have to meet basic, fundamental constitutional obligations and they haven’t.”
Shortly after 3 pm Eastern this afternoon, @AoSHQ noted Stephanopoulos was shown on camera making the slit-the-throat "kill" gesture to cut away from Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow taking press questions. These guys are NOT going to like hearing the Trump side of this trial. pic.twitter.com/5QazRGHosV

George’s bias was showing and he knew it. Notice the smirk on his face when the camera catches him doing the “kill” gesture. He says, “And that is Jay Sekulow right there…”
