Here is just another prime example of how the mainstream media just creates their own news stories.
NBC News reporter, Leigh Ann Caldwell was caught live on air trying to create fake news by saying that the Republicans were struggling to defend President Trump when her words caught the ear of Republican Congressman Mark Meadows.
Meadows didn’t agree with Caldwell and was sure to call her out on it. He turned around walked right back and said, “The Republicans are not struggling on anything.”
Caldwell asked some follow up questions Cortney O’Brien from Townhall reported:
Caldwell then took the opportunity to ask a few follow-up questions. She wanted to know, for instance, how Meadows and his Republican colleagues can continue to defend President Trump when “only one” witness so far in the impeachment inquiry has said there was no quid pro quo in his phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. Meadows corrected her to note there was more than one witness to reject the quid pro quo narrative, starting with former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker. Interestingly, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) noted today, that’s the one testimony the Democrats have been reluctant to release.
Meadows then took to Twitter to further elaborate on how Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony contradicted the Democrats' false narrative.
“Seeing many overblown (and outright false) reports about Ambassador Sondland’s testimony. Here’s what he actually said.
1. I did not (and still don’t) know why aid was held up
2. I “PRESUMED” it was because of corruption
3. I told Yermak my assumption”

Caldwell continued to try and make it seem like it was getting more and more difficult to defend the President, but in reality, it's only gotten as easy as can be. The Democrats have already done the heavy work for them.
Meadows said, “Actually as we hear more testimony – and the testimony that we’re hearing today – it’s actually getting easier to defend the president. From a standpoint, there is no linkage between aid.”
