Laura Ingraham Gets Roasted After Her Desperate Attempt to Rebut Nancy Pelosi's 'Bribery' Accusation Against Donald Trump

Fox News

One of President Donald Trump's most ardent supporters, far-Right Fox News host Laura Ingraham, continues to defend the President's withholding of congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine in exchange for its President publicly declaring an investigation into Trump's political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The defenses are getting more and more ridiculous.

In a recent segment, Ingraham pointed out that, while bribery is forbidden in the Constitution, attempted bribery isn't mentioned. Since Ukraine got the aid without publicly declaring the investigation, Ingraham asserts, all's well that ends well.

Watch below.

Ingraham said:

“The president may be impeached for bribery, treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors. But even assuming the Democrats strained and ridiculous interpretation of the facts … attempted bribery isn't in the Constitution."

In reality, the aid was granted only after Congress began to scrutinize the reasons it was being withheld.

What's more, former U.S. attorney Joyce Vance pointed out that Ingraham's assertions about the law weren't even correct.

Others agreed.

People were flabbergasted by the latest Republican defense of the President's actions.

The public impeachment hearings continue today with the testimony of Marie Yovanovitch, the former Ambassador to Ukraine.

The saying "While the cat's away the mice will play" refers to people taking advantage of the absence of oversight to do as they like. While that is an apt description for what is happening now with the Trump administration using the public's focus on the global pandemic to roll back environmental protections, perhaps a better saying is "The inmates are running the asylum."

In other words, those least capable of running a group or organization are now in charge.

In the face of the public health crisis that's upended daily life in the United States, the historical impeachment trial of President Donald Trump—which ended on February 5—feels like a lifetime ago, despite captivating. a nation as late as last month.
