NBC Spikes, ABC/CBS Downplay Ukraine Pres Saying No Quid Pro Quo

In a recent interview with TIME magazine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he never approached conversations with President Trump “from the position of a quid pro quo.” It was a declaration that poked a major hole in the left’s impeachment narrative, but the liberal broadcast networks would have none of it during their Monday evening newscasts. Two of them downplayed the comments and one just flat out refused to report them.

Trump's strategy all along: deny he's done anything wrong and trash the process. Today, he argued the president of Ukraine backs him up,” scoffed ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran on World News Tonight.

Moran interrupted a soundbite of Trump explaining what Zelensky said in an effort to contradict the President:

But the Ukrainian President never said Trump did nothing wrong and he criticized the decision to withhold military aid. "I never talked to the President from the position of a quid pro quo," he told TIME. "But you have to understand, we're at war. If you're our strategic partner, then you can't go blocking anything for us."

Of course, that was followed up with anchor David Muir hyping up the new impeachment hearing set to take place later in the week.
