.@SteveScalise blew the nasty & obnoxious Chris Wallace (will never be his father, Mike!) away on Chris’s lowest rated (unless I’m on) morning show. This kind of dumb and unfair interview would never have happened in the @FoxNews past,” Trump tweeted.

Trump attacked Wallace over his impeachment coverage, including unfavorably comparing to him his father, in October as well.

In his interview with Scalise Sunday, Wallace pressed the No. 2 House Republican on his characterization of the diplomats who have testified before the House Intelligence Committee in the past week as “[Committee Chair Adam] Schiff’s witnesses.”

Wallace countered that all of the witnesses had worked within the Trump administration, with Scalise responding that senior State Department official George Kent, top Ukraine envoy Bill Taylor, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie YovanovitchMarie YovanovitchGiuliani hires attorneys who defended Harvey Weinstein The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Emergent BioSolutions - Facebook upholds Trump ban; GOP leaders back Stefanik to replace Cheney Former Ukrainian prosecutor says he was fired for not investigating Hunter Biden: report MORE all testified they never witnessed impeachable offenses.

“With all due respect, that very badly mischaracterizes what they said,” Wallace said. “They were asked, William Taylor, for instance, the acting Ambassador to Ukraine, was asked whether or not these were impeachable offenses. He said 'I’m there as a fact witness. I’m not there to pass judgment,' but he made it clear what he thought about what the president was doing.”
