Mollie Hemingway: There Should Be Consequences For Media That Pushed False Anti-Trump Dossier (VIDEO)

Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist has been a leading voice of reason in the media over the last few years.

She has correctly disputed many of the false claims against Trump, including the anti-Trump dossier.

This week, during an appearance on FOX News, she suggested that there should be consequences for media outlets which got the story so wrong and pushed the dossier.

MOLLIE HEMINGWAY, THE FEDERALIST: I’m one of the few people who has actually read the 430-page report. It outlines such tremendous amounts of spying. Electronic surveillance, the use of confidential human informants that were replaced people on the campaign.

Two years ago you had competing memos come out. You had Devin Nunes say that there were problems with the FISA process, that that was abuse. You had the response memo from Adam Schiff who is now leading the impeachment effort. Never Trump media and liberal media completely disparage the Nunes memo and completely supported the Schiff memo and they were utterly humiliated by what come out in this report yesterday. Every single thing in the Nunes memo reported to be true. If anything, it underreported the problems with the FISA process.

Meanwhile, things that were claimed by Schiff that people took seriously, the people accepted uncritically, were shown to be false. They said there were no material omissions in the FISA warrants.

BAIER: And that the dossier was okay.

HEMINGWAY: There were so many errors. And, again, all in the same direction. The dossier was completely disputed. Remember that Adam Schiff read the dossier into the Congressional record. He hijacked a separate hearing in order to do so. There should be consequences for this. And there should be consequences for media that got it wrong as well.
