Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin made a spirited defense of President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey Wednesday evening on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
“First of all the president didn’t order an end to the Russia investigation, now did he?” Levin said. “We have a lot of legal and historical illiterates posing as TV hosts and commentators.”
Levin called out “the leading demagogue” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., with a series of questions that highlight the Democratic leader’s blatant hypocrisy.
“Tell me something, Mr. Schumer, can you name a single Russian, just one, who colluded with Donald Trump and his campaign? Just give us a one, one.”
“Let me ask you something, sir, do you support an independent special prosecutor for Hillary Clinton and her multiple violations of the Espionage Act?”
“Do you support an independent special prosecutor for the Obama administration surveillance and unmasking of Trump transition team members and God knows who else?”
“The Israeli ambassador was surveilled. The prime minister of Israel was surveilled. Members of Congress were surveilled. Jewish leaders and Jewish groups were surveilled. How about an independent investigation of that?”
He also praised President Trump for having the guts to do what President Obama refused to do. "The president of the United States did exactly the right thing. He did what Barack Obama didn't have the courage to do — remove an FBI director that didn't have the temperament to be an FBI director," Levin said.
At the end of the day, Levin explained that President Trump acted constitutionally and lawfully, following the advice of a deputy attorney general – Rod Rosentsein – who enjoys widespread bipartisan support for his professionalism.
“The answer is: The president followed the Constitution, and Chuck Schumer is undermining he Constitution.”
