No sooner had Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway unpacked the implications of Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitting his report to the attorney general than liberal hack Chris Wallace countered with his negative feedback.

Wallace appeared on a Fox News panel Friday following a segment in which Hemingway discussed reports that the Mueller probe of alleged collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia in the 2016 election is wrapping up and that Mueller is planning no further indictments.

“The fact that there are no more indictments coming and the fact that all of the indictments we’ve seen thus far have been for process crimes are things unrelated to what we’ve been told by so many people in the media with treason, collusion to steal a 2016 election, I think it’s very significant,” Hemingway noted on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“We do have to wait and see what the report says and people on all sides want to know a lot. But if there is nothing there, that matches what we’ve heard from the media for many years, there needs to be a reckoning, and the people who spread this theory both inside and outside the government who were not critical and did not behave appropriately, need to be held accountable,” Hemingway said.

When Wallace joined Baier along with “The Daily Briefing” host Dana Perino and “The Five” co-host Juan Williams, he had no trouble masking his anti-Trump views.

“We don’t want to rush to judgement and I think that since this report has come out, since no one has seen it, to say that somehow this clears the president seems like the height of rushing to judgment,” the “Fox News Sunday” anchor said.

“People talk about the appointment of the special counsel,” Wallace said. “The fact is the reason the special counsel was appointed is because Trump fired James Comey in the middle of his investigation. If Comey had been allowed to finish his investigation there probably wouldn’t have been an special counsel.”

“I’m also a little surprised at this talk about process crimes,” he continued. “Process crimes are not parking tickets. Process crimes are lying to federal prosecutors, they’re lying to the FBI. This is the very basis of which justice is administered. And to the degree that which commit perjury, that’s a very serious crime.”

He was sure to point out that the investigation did result in “serious convictions” of Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen. But Wallace failed to clarify that the charges had nothing to do with the president or even Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

Wallace offered no positive analysis on the special counsel’s report and, as he has frequently done along with his anti-Trump Fox News colleague, Shepard Smith, spewed his personal bias as if it were sharp journalistic analysis. It seems Wallace may be more comfortable with the mainstream media and the Trump-hating networks which all seemed to have a meltdown over the long-awaited Mueller’s report.

Fox News viewers who have had enough of the likes of Wallace and Smith unloaded on Twitter after the segment on Friday.
