CNN Humiliates Itself In ‘Fact Check’ Admitting Impeachment Evidence Is True

On Wednesday evening, CNN humiliated itself by publishing a “fact check” of Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) impeachment inquiry evidence — admitting that it is true, while at the same time trying to smear it as “unproven.”

McCarthy mocked CNN while speaking with reporters on Thursday, stating: “What was interesting was the headline, but more interesting was the fact checks. It was all true. They had to acknowledge that every alleged accusation that put us into impeachment inquiry is true. I appreciate CNN actually acknowledged that.”

The House Speaker was referring to an article titled, “Fact-checking McCarthy’s claims while launching Biden impeachment inquiry,” which was written by CNN’s Annie Grayer, Marshall Cohen and Daniel Dale.

In the article, the reporters “fact-checked” six allegations made by McCarthy in the impeachment inquiry announcement on Tuesday. The article found some of the allegations true, while claiming others lacked context. However, none of them were proven false.

The first claim was that Biden family members and associates received $20 million through a complex web of shell companies — which CNN concluded: “this is true” regarding President Joe Biden’s family members and associates. However, the left-wing news outlet claims that there is no evidence as of yet that the president himself received any of this money. Of course, the point of an impeachment inquiry is to conduct an investigation into whether such evidence exists.

The second claim fact-checked by CNN was that an informant alleged both Joe and Hunter Biden took bribes. “It’s true that an informant gave a tip of this nature to the FBI in 2020, and that the bureau had viewed him as a credible informant,” the CNN reporters wrote. “But the underlying allegation that the Biden family was given a bribe is totally unproven; the informant was merely reporting something he said he had been told by a Ukrainian businessman.”


Once again, the objective of an impeachment inquiry is to investigate the claim made by this informant, who the FBI previously described as a “credible informant.”

The third claim was that the president participated in calls and dinners with his son’s business partners. CNN refused to acknowledge whether this claim was true or false, instead claiming it “omits key context” — despite the fact that it has been proven to be true.

CNN also refused to acknowledge whether the fourth claim was true or false, which revolved around the Biden family members’ financial transactions being flagged as suspicious — which is inherently true. There have been dozens of suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed about Biden family members’ financial transactions, but CNN argues that these reports do not prove wrongdoing. “The existence of these suspicious activity reports don’t prove wrongdoing on their own,” the article stated.

The fifth claim was that then-Vice President Biden “used his powers to help his son’s business” — which CNN did not deem false. The outlet instead said that “allegations from House Republicans are still evolving” on this matter, but there was “no public evidence that Joe Biden abused his government powers to help his family.”

The sixth claim was that the president lied about having no knowledge of his family’s business deals — to which CNN admitted “Joe Biden’s unequivocal denials of any business-related contact with his son have been undercut over time.”

The reporters went on to try to cover for the president, claiming that “so far there is no public evidence that his occasional interactions with Hunter Biden’s business partners led to him getting substantively involved in his son’s financial arrangements.”
