Sondlandtestimony2

By Randy Rossi - 

The horribly biased and dishonest reporting of Ambassador Sondland’s testimony at the Democrat’s impeachment inquiry is rock solid proof that the “Fake News” is indeed the enemy of the people. There is nothing more important or impactful to our country than an impeachment process, especially if one political party (Dems) is trying to overturn the vote of the people. At this critical time, it is the news media’s sacred role to make sure that the American people have the facts and truth to make a critical decision that has a massive impact on our country.


But when reporting on Ambassador Sondland’s testimony at the impeachment inquiry, much of the “Fake News” did exactly the opposite. While it is true that Sondland expressed his personal opinion that President Trump wanted a “quid pro quo” from Ukraine for military aid, at the end of his testimony Sondland admitted when questioned by Republicans that he had a personal phone conversation with President Trump in which he asked President Trump “What do you want from Ukraine for the military aid?”.  Sondland specifically testified  that President Trump responded “I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky to do the right thing”. When asked by  Republican Mike Turner “Mr. Sondland, let’s be clear: no one on this planet—not Donald Trump, Rudy Guiliani, Mick Mulvaney, Mike Pompeo—no one told you aid was tied to political investigations, is that correct?”. Sondland responded “That’s correct”. What could be clearer than that?

Naturally every news source reported on Sondland’s opinion that President Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine in order to receive critical military aid. But most of the “Fake News” did not even mention that Sondland admitted that President Trump specifically said he wanted no quid quo pro from Ukraine and only wanted President Zelensky to do the right thing. Or that nobody in the Trump administration ever told him that military aid was tied to a quid pro quo. That is a perfect example of “Fake News” biased reporting. Added to this biased reporting, the “Fake News” avoids reporting on the fact that President Obama refused to send Ukraine any lethal weapons to protect themselves which broke a US treaty promise to protect Ukraine while one of the first things President Trump did when he got into office was to send Ukraine critical lethal weapons to protect themselves including Javelin anti-tank missiles. Obama only sent them MREs (food) and blankets and sent them through Poland to avoid upsetting Putin. Trump on the other hand sent those Javelins directly to Ukraine. Who is Putin’s puppet? Sadly because of the “Fake News”, most Americans don’t know these facts.

This is absolute proof that the “Fake News” is indeed an enemy of the people and a threat to our freedom.

  1. “Chicago’s VERY OWN” WGN-TV (channel 9) pulled a fake-news trick to begin Thursday evening’s 9 PM news.
    They edited Sondland’s reply to the question “Do you believe President Trump asked for a quid-pro-quo?” with a quick cut of the video to him answering “Yes” to a different question.
    The twitch in the video was the clue that it had been altered, but it was so quick that few viewers may have caught it. Because I had viewed the testimony LIVE, I knew the fake news game WGN was playing.
