The Five co-host Jesse Watters made a bold statement while discussing Friday’s public impeachment hearing that featured former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
Before giving Jesse Watters a chance to respond, Juan Williams mentioned how Ambassador Yovanovitch said in her testimony that she felt “smeared” after learning that both President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky had “unfavorable” opinions about her, which could have played a part in what led to her being fired.
“Oh poor baby,” Watters replied. “When Obama was President, ambassadors were coming back in body bags, now everone’s upset cause one got fired. So what? People get fired all the time.”
“Witness tampering? Really? Schiff colluded with the whistleblower. That’s witness tampering,” he proclaimed.
“Bribing? How about when Obama sent pallets of cash to Iran? That’s more bribery than this,” Watters declared.
“Freezing aid for a blink of an eye. That’s a bribe?” he questioned. “Tweeting is now an impeachable offense? That’s witness tampering?” Video Below
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a video of Watters making the remarks and captioned it: “Great job @JesseBWatters you nailed exactly what the media is neglecting to even mention… on purpose of course. Give me a break.”
