Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin sharply criticized the liberal media for not wanting Americans to “draw their own conclusions” about the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, and added that the leftist press and the Democrat Party are leading the “greatest scandal in the history of America.” 

“This grand resolution that the Democrats have put together, which the media are arguing solves their problem of formalizing an impeachment inquiry -- even though Nancy Pelosi and Stumpy Hoyer have both said ‘no, no, no,’ this is not about and impeachment inquiry -- is formalizing the position that Nancy Pelosi took five weeks ago,” said Levin on his national syndicated radio show on Tuesday.

“Media, do you understand what the words mean?” Levin said. “You are so damn stupid or you are so damn in the tank, can’t you explain things to the American people and let them draw their own conclusions?” he said.

“This is not a formal house inquiry,” said Levin. “This is a vote, as Nancy Pelosi says, a vote for the existing investigative activities that are going on.”

Levin added that the Nixon and Clinton impeachment cases “have nothing to do” with the current investigation against President Trump, and that Democrats “will not cede control” given that under the resolution the minority of the House is only able to call witnesses after requesting permission and being approved by the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

“You see, under the Nixon and Clinton impeachment processes that were in place, the minority did not have to request permission to call witnesses, there wasn't an evaluation of minority witness request -- they called witnesses, see?” said Levin. “They will not, will not cede any control.”

“I am well familiar with impeachment, as well as have studied various scholars, I am well familiar with special counsel and independent counsel,” said Levin, a lawyer, best selling author and constitutional scholar.

“I can tell you right now what they are trying to do to Trump is an abomination, and is unconscionable,” he said.  “There is no comparison in American history, not just modern American history, but American history, period.”

“This is the greatest scandal this country has ever faced,” he added. “And it is a scandal led by the Democrat Party and their media, the Democrat Party which defended slavery, the Democrat Party which defended segregation, the Democrat Party which defended Jim Crow, the Democrat Party which seeks to unseat a duly elected president of the United States -- that Democrat Party and their bastard media.”  

Transcript  

Mark Levin: “So let's take a look at this grand resolution that the Democrats have put together, which the media are arguing solves their problem of formalizing an impeachment inquiry -- even though Nancy Pelosi and Stumpy Hoyer have both said ‘no, no, no,’ this is not about and impeachment inquiry -- is formalizing  the position that Nancy Pelosi took five weeks ago. When you look at the resolution online you will see the word resolution. It doesn't say House impeachment hearing resolution, House impeachment inquiry resolution, they'll get to that later.  but that is not the heading on the document.    

“Media, do you understand what the words mean? You are so damn stupid or you are so damn in the tank, can’t you explain things to the American people and let them draw their own conclusions? This is not a formal House inquiry. This is a vote, as Nancy Pelosi says, a vote for the existing investigative activities that are going on with six committees, three committees I guess.

“Section 2: ‘for the purpose of continuing the investigation described in the first section of this resolution.’ So they are continuing the investigation described in the first section of this resolution. Why are they doing that, are they in a rush? They want to give the imprimatur to everything that they have done as a formal hearing? Try to retroactively bring it under the umbrella of the full House? So they can go to the court and say that? And for other reasons.

“You see, under the Nixon and Clinton impeachment processes that were in place the minority did not have to request permission to call witnesses. There wasn't an evaluation of minority witness request -- they called witnesses, see? They will not, will not cede any control.

“I am well familiar with impeachment, as well as have studied various scholars, I am well familiar with special counsel and independent counsel, and I can tell you right now what they are trying to do to Trump, is an abomination, is unconscionable. There is no comparison in American history, not just modern American history, but American history, period.

“This is the greatest scandal this country has ever faced and it is a scandal led by the Democrat Party and their media, the Democrat Party which defended slavery, the Democrat Party which defended segregation, the Democrat Party which defended Jim Crow, the Democrat Party which seeks to unseat a duly elected president of the United States -- that Democrat Party and their bastard media.”
