Fox News Panel Goes Haywire After Doocy Defends Biden On Impeachment

The set of the popular Fox News show “Fox & Friends” was heated as Steve Doocy battled his co-hosts on the impeachment of President Joe Biden.

Hours before the president’s son, Hunter Biden, was set to testify before the House Doocy asserted that there was no evidence of high crimes or misdemeanors against president Biden.

This rankled his co-hosts, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt, on Wednesday.

“So this is coming at a critical moment for the Republicans impeachment inquiry,” Doocy said before the Hunter Biden testimony. “And on Capitol Hill, a lot of Republican lawmakers say they have seen zero evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors. And right now, the Republicans do not have enough votes to impeach. And after dozens of interviews and over 100,000 documents released to the committees, the Republicans have yet to produce any direct evidence of misconduct by Joe Biden.”

“But man, this looks absolutely terrible,” Kilmeade said. “One hundred fifty suspicious activity reports around them. Joe Biden was in on meetings with every major deal regarding Hunter Biden. He said, my dad is sitting next to me while talking to a Chinese CFC official.”

“Many phone calls!”  Earhardt said. “There’s a $200,000 check that was paid to Biden. Then you’ve got an inexperienced Hunter Biden who admitted that to ABC in an interview, he said, yeah, shouldn’t have real I don’t really have any experience in this. Then why are you on the board?”


“Well, yeah, I think there are many lawmakers who say they’ve seen zero evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors,” Doocy insisted.

“But we just said that they have,” Kilmeade argued.

“But they’ve …. to impeach somebody you need direct evidence of misconduct by Joe Biden. Look, Hunter Biden, it sure looks like he traded on his name and he’s going to have plenty of time today,” Doocy protested.

“With his dad … the role his dad played is key,” Kilmeade said as he interrupted Doocy.

“Pardon me Brian. We’re going to have plenty of time, the Republicans are, to ask him a million questions. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say. But right now, you know, according to Republicans, there’s no,” Doocy said.

Kilmeade: What Republicans?!

Doocy: Some Republicans say they’ve got the goods on Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. But a number of Republicans who I’ve spoken to on Capitol Hill say there’s no direct evidence of misconduct by the current president.

Earhardt: It’s just so corrupt.

Kilmeade: This is so unbelievable.

Earhardt: And how does Joe Biden have these multimillion dollar houses? We know what he makes. How does he have I mean, he had to have gotten money somewhere.


Kilmeade: I think Comer’s done a great job with very reluctant witnesses. And Tony Bobulinski and then also the business partner who is in jail where Devon Archer is heading. If you worked with Hunter Biden, you’re either dead, missing or jailed. And that’s where he could be heading next.

Doocy: So Hunter Biden in the hot seat less than three hours from right now. We’ll bring you as soon as he goes into the building.

In an opening statement in the closed door deposition Hunter Biden railed against the impeachment inquiry.

“I am here today to provide the Committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business,” he said, CNN reported. “Not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist. Never.”

“You have trafficked in innuendo, distortion, and sensationalism — all the while ignoring the clear and convincing evidence staring you in the face,” he said. “You do not have evidence to support the baseless and MAGA-motivated conspiracies about my father because there isn’t any.”

“My testimony today should put an end to this baseless and destructive political charade,” he said.
