Since Tucker Carlson’s abrupt departure from Fox News, the network has taken a nosedive toward the liberal media. Fox’s attacks on the most popular candidate for president in 2024 are reaching new heights as Fox’s viewers turn to other news sources in quest of impartial information.
Former President Trump has never shied away from participating in debates and holds his own against accusations from haters. However, on Monday night, Trump-hating FOX News host Bret Baier sat down with President Trump for an interview that consisted entirely of attacks.
The current case against Trump regarding documents held by the former president at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, has stunned Trump supporters and anyone paying attention, as numerous other current politicians have been found to be in possession of classified documents and, unlike Trump, were unable to declassify them.
During the Monday interview, Baier queried Trump about the declassified “classified documents” he was holding at his Mar-a-Lago residence. President Trump noted that Mike Pence and Joe Biden illegally retained classified documents after leaving office. Joe Biden was in possession of classified documents from his time as a senator and vice president and was sharing them with Hunter’s business associates for their illicit transactions with foreign clients.
Bret Baier would have NONE OF IT! Baier retorted to Trump, “No he didn’t! He turned them over!”
Bret Baier utterly disregarded the fact that Pence’s possession of these documents in his residence was ILLEGAL. Mike Pence told CNN in November 2022 that he did not take any classified documents with him when he departed office. And Baier neglected to mention that Pence told the media two months earlier that he did not have the documents.
Trump: Mike Pence had documents that were classified.
Baier: And he turned them over.
Trump: No, he didn't turn them over. He got caught. pic.twitter.com/GPGjOJF3dB

Two years after leaving office, in January 2023, Mike Pence confessed to Congress and the federal government that he was in possession of classified documents at his residence. He illegally carried the documents with him when he departed office in January 2021. Like Joe Biden, Mike Pence could not carry classified documents as vice president. It was unlawful for them to act in this manner.

Pence: "I did not."
Muir: "Do you see any reason for anyone to take classified docs from the White House."
Pence: "There would be no reason." pic.twitter.com/VsUUntiwU1

Joe Biden has been in possession of classified documents since 1974, when he was a senator and later the vice president. 1.850 cartons of documents were reportedly discovered in Biden’s possession, and NBC reported this month that the investigation into Biden’s possession of these documents is lingering on in Washington.
Biden has not been interviewed on the subject, and NBC has provided a list of Biden spokespeople who have “refused to comment.” However, Trump has been pursued and tormented regarding the documents he possesses, which are typical for an ex-president.
Baier took the opportunity to bring up points that he evidently viewed as detrimental to Trump, and excerpts from the Monday interview have gone viral.

Baier attempted to cast Trump in an unpopular light, quoting Trump in 2016 as he stated that he would “surround myself with only the best and most serious people” to which Trump responded that he “did do that” adding, “We had the best economy we ever had, the world has ever seen.” CONTINUE READING…
