Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley blasted the media's bias in its coverage of the Democrats' impeachment inquiry during an interview live on CNN on Friday.
In an exchange with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, the Situation Room host pressed Haley to respond to the allegation that President Trump unduly pressured the Ukrainian government to launch an investigation into his political rival, Joe Biden. Haley was having none of it.
"Show me the proof," she said, adding "because I don't see anywhere where the president heavy-handed the president of Ukraine and said 'you have to do this or else.'"
"There is nothing that shows" Trump did anything wrong
Blitzer then tried to cut Haley off, but Haley stopped him dead in his tracks.
"Look," said the former governor of South Carolina, "I know you all want there to be something wrong, but at the end of the day, there is nothing that shows he threatened or that he held their hands saying 'we're not going to release [the money] until you do this,' and that's the issue." Adding, "that's obviously the problem in Congress and why they can't come to a resolution on this."
