No reporter knows more about the Trump-Russia affair, top to bottom, than Fox News Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge.

E31. Democrats Scramble To Sell Impeachment

Democrats are making up impeachment as they go along. They’re sensitive to accusations that they’re rushing — but they’re rushing. Adam Schiff says Democrats have to act quickly because President Trump presents an imminent danger to the country and must be removed ASAP. For her part, Nancy Pelosi says it’s not a rush at all, because the impeachment investigation is really a continuation of the years-long Russia probe. “This isn’t about Ukraine,” she said. “It’s about Russia.” Really? Meanwhile, Republicans — and no one else, apparently — are upset about Schiff’s decision to publish the phone records of the president’s personal attorneys, a journalist, and a fellow member of Congress. All in this week’s impeachment edition of The Byron York Show.

So much writing on President Trump, and especially his business career, comes from journalists who aren’t businesspeople. What do they know about being hundreds of millions of dollars in debt? Conrad Black is a former press baron who sees Trump’s business life from a businessman’s (and a historian’s) perspective, and his new biography of the president puts Trump in a new light. How much hucksterism is good? Was there strategy behind Trump’s professional wrestling antics? And what about the president’s near-death experience with debt?
