Fox News’ Chris Wallace isn’t hiding his anti-Trump stance during his interview with Rep. Steve Scalise today.
Wallace is counting on the American people to be ignorant of the fact that the career State Department officials called to testify against Trump were all government bureaucrats protecting the corrupt Obama administration. Scalise said all three said they didn’t see a crime committed by President Trump. Wallace tries to interrupt Scalise at this point in the interview.
Wallace said: “You say those were Schiff’s witness, but they were all working in the Trump administration”
What Wallace isn’t saying is that 33-year government lifer Marie Yovanovitch was an Obama holdover who was working for the Trump administration BUT was no fan of her new boss.

Wallace is also not informing viewers that President-elect Barack Obama sent all of the prior administration’s ambassadors a pink slip when he was elected. President Trump didn’t let Yovanovich go when he came into office! He kept her on until word got back that she was badmouthing him.
THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTS:
The incoming Obama administration has notified all politically-appointed ambassadors that they must vacate their posts as of Jan. 20, the day President-elect Barack Obama takes the oath of office, a State Department official said.
The clean slate will open up prime opportunities for the president-elect to reward political supporters with posts in London, Paris, Tokyo and the like. The notice to diplomatic posts was issued this week.
Political ambassadors sometimes are permitted to stay on briefly during a new administration, but the sweeping nature of the directive suggests that Obama has little interest in retaining any of Bush’s ambassadorial appointees.
President Trump tweeted:
.@SteveScalise blew the nasty & obnoxious Chris Wallace (will never be his father, Mike!) away on Chris’s lowest rated (unless I’m on) morning show. This kind of dumb and unfair interview would never have happened in the @FoxNews past. Great job Steve!
