Fox News’ Chris Wallace has knocked Republicans’ double standard over House investigations into the Trump White House.

Wallace said on Friday’s broadcast of “Outnumbered” that he found it “kind of rich that Republicans are so outraged that there would be this kind of a hearing of the other party’s president and administration.”
It came during an analysis of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

“You know, it’s not like Republicans sat on their hands when Barack Obama was president,” Wallace said. “They investigated Benghazi, they investigated Fast & Furious, they investigated the IRS, and you know, look, those were all legitimate issues to investigate. Sometimes they found some things, sometimes they didn’t find things.”

Wallace noted how it was all “part of oversight.”

“When Republicans are, have oversight of a branch of Congress or a house of Congress and they’re investigating a Democratic president, they’re gonna make life difficult for them, and now the Democrats are in control of the House and have the control of these committees,” he said.

“That’s the way it works.”

IMO, On the merry-go-round of DC's 'tit for tat,' "What goes around comes around."

I have about as much use for Chris Wallace as I did his father :arrogant and disrespectful, believing he owed obedience.

The Republicans could never make much headway on oversight while Obama was in office because Holder flat out refused to cooperate. He was held in contempt of congress because of it. Under Trump the deep state continued to refuse to cooperate.

That's a valid observation. Let's see what happens and whether or not anyone is able to compare whether the efforts are reasonably equivalent. We know there will be one major difference. The MSM won't be over 90% negative toward the President when reporting on the investigations. So there's that...

I saw video clips of some of his testimony, but likely the newsies didn't show all the testimony.

From what I saw, it seemed to me that his responses and behavior were fine. It also seemed that all the Democrats I saw were trying to be as nasty to him as possible.

From the video I saw, it appeared that all the Democrats had agreed to end each question with a demand that he answer "Yes or no". That demand is not appropriate: For a question about a privileged conversation with someone, e.g., Trump, "yes or no" cannot be an appropriate answer.

I don't want to be wrong, so if you have some specific questions he refused to answer, hopefully with a transcript or video link, I will be eager to pay attention.

Else you have just an unsubstantiated accusation which usually in not productive and otherwise rude.

Because they were trying the old trick of asking false questions like, "Have you stopped beating your wife? Please answer yes or no!"

If the respondent has never beat his wife, either demanded response confirms the lie stated in the question.

Whitaker should have simply answered, "Screw you!", to each of those deceitful questions that were in fact outright lies by the democrats.

It wasn't out of sight it was broadcasted live in FOX. I wouldn't waste my time on your news channels so I can't tell you if they covered them or not. Comey and the FBI mob did the exact same thing Whitaker did except Whitaker did it without the smirk. Furthermore, the filthy Progs deviated from the agreed itinerary and gave him a confirmation hearing. I have never witnessed a group of criminal worthless legislatures as those fools called Democrats.
