Stephen Miller Publicly Self-Destructs During ‘Fox News Sunday’ Failure

To say that Stephen Miller went off the rails during his appearance this weekend on Fox News Sunday with host Chris Wallace would be a polite understatement. The longtime Trump adviser flipped his lid over the emergence of a whistleblower complaint chronicling Trump trying to get the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on the Bidens. With no evidence other than conjecture, Miller insisted that the complaint was nothing more than a “partisan hit job” and that the whistleblower themselves behaved “like a spy” — which calls right back to President Donald Trump’s own recent quip that the whistleblower should be shot. Again, this all went down on national cable television this weekend via the belligerence of the sitting administration of the president of the United States.

Really not a single part of the interview went well. Miller also insisted that an interview from months prior to the alleged behavior disproves the allegations and that because he’s worked in the federal government for three years, he’s an “expert” in spotting — and this is a quote — “deep state operatives.” Oh, how terrifying. And ludicrous.

He railed:

‘I think it’s unfortunate that the media continues to describe this individual as a whistleblower, an honorific that this individual most certainly does not deserve. A partisan hit job does not make you a whistleblower just because you go through the whistleblower protection act.’

Wallace asked what evidence he had to support his assertions in light of points like acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire insisting that the whistleblower was acting in good faith.

Miller continued, acting like he made sure to read a thesaurus entry for a bunch of angry words this morning:

‘First of all, if you read the seven page little Nancy Drew novel that the whistleblower put together — it drips with condescension, righteous indignation, and contempt for the president. It’s also ludicrous on its face. It describes an elaborate cover-up that also by the way, the president discussed on Sean Hannity April 25. What kind of secret cover-up are you also discussing on the airwaves of Fox News?’

The call at the center of the scandal, on which Trump pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens, took place in July. The whistleblower points to a cover-up operation engaged in to hide records of that call — which took place in July. Miller is pointing to an interview that aired months prior to try and disprove that allegation.

None of the rest of Miller’s time on Fox went well. Wallace tried to steer the conversation to facts, asking why the president used the help of private attorneys including Rudy Giuliani instead of official government channels to deal with the Ukrainians. All Miller had was what Wallace denounced as a “non-answer.” Wallace also went on to denounce Miller’s campaign of “obfuscation.”

Thanks to the scandal, Trump is now facing an impeachment inquiry from House Democrats, and if Miller’s behavior this weekend is any indication — the Trump team is prepared to put up a passionate fight.
