Fox Business host Lou Dobbs took aim at Democrats over their impeachment inquiry into President Trump, saying they were acting as an “enemy of the state.”
“They are absolutely willing to subvert the president of the United States. They are lawless, they are reckless, and then they want to pretend — I mean, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want to talk with the president about gun control?” Dobbs said Monday night in regards to Democratic leaders saying they still want certain legislation signed by Trump despite their impeachment inquiry. “Really? Nancy, Chuck, get real; you’re behaving as an enemy of the state and then you want to play like you’re going to make a deal with the president?”
As he ended the segment, he added, “Go to hell!”
The diatribe came as Dobbs had a panel on to discuss the whistleblower complaint that fueled the start of an impeachment inquiry into Trump. Dobbs, 74, claimed, “Obviously, it’s what they want,” after a panelist asked if the CIA wanted to be “overturning elections.”
“It is just for President Trump,” he added.
Pelosi, the House’s top Democrat, backed an impeachment inquiry last week based on the complaint, which said the president had pressured the Ukrainian government to investigate his potential 2020 opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
The Trump administration admits it wanted to investigate Biden but denies claims by Democrats that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine.
