Chris Wallace Schools Trump Defender On Impeachment: ‘Much Bigger Issue Than Whether Bill Clinton Lied About Sex’

Fox News host Chris Wallace welcomed Ken Starr, who served as the independent counsel in the Bill Clinton impeachment, to his show on Monday to speak about the current impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.

During their argument, Wallace pointed out to Starr that the Clinton impeachment and the Trump impeachment were caused by two completely different things – one being way more serious than the other.

Wallace called out Starr’s “characterization of this process and what we heard today… he said that the presentation against the president is narrow, prosecutors look through the world through dirty windows, it’s slanted.”

“And you know, it just seems to me — and Ken, I see you there on the screen so I’ll be talking directly to you — when you compare this to the Clinton impeachment, which was basically about whether the president had lied under oath about sex,” Wallace continued. “I’m not talking about whether this story is true or not.”

“But the allegation that President Trump conditioned support for a key foreign policy ally on political benefit to him strikes me as not narrow, but far broader than the Clinton impeachment and the effort that was made by you and Republicans, then, to impeach him.”

Wallace also called out Starr for saying that there is no prospect of Trump being removed from office by a conviction in the Senate.

“As if that should somehow affect the ways the House proceeds,” Wallace said. “There was certainly never any prospect that Clinton was going to be removed, and in fact, you talked about the political buy-in. Bill Clinton in 1998 at the height of the whole impeachment thing, scored a victory. Democrats actually picked up seats.”

“I’m simply saying there’s a very different standard in how the Clinton impeachment went and how this impeachment is being judged. This seems to be about a much bigger issue,” Wallace concluded. “But it seems to be an issue about foreign policy, national security, the security of our elections. It’s a much bigger issue than whether Bill Clinton lied about sex.”
