Fox Host Kennedy Shifts Goalposts: Trump Seeking Quid Pro Quo Not ‘Necessarily Illegal’
Following Thursday’s public release of the bombshell whistleblower complaint that alleged Ukrainian officials felt obliged to “play ball” with President Donald Trump while he apparently forced this issue by suspending military aid, Fox Business Network host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery shifted the goalposts, insisting that a quid pro quo wasn’t technically “illegal.”
“You know, quid pro quo means this for that,’’ she said. “That is not necessarily illegal, and I think every administration and every president can say, well, that’s how you get things done. We’ve got something they want, so if we’re going to exchange in order to get what is most beneficial for us.”
“The question is, and I don’t think Democrats have done this yet, they have not drawn the line when it sort of falls over the cliff of illegality,” Kennedy continued. “And that’s very, very important, and that has to be completely stark.”
