    From the "Nothing to see here", files: The Ukraine scandal timeline Democrats and their media allies don’t want America to see

    For weeks now, Democratic members of Congress, career State Department and National Security Council experts and their allies in the media suggest questions about Joe Biden and a Ukrainian gas company and Ukraine meddling in the 2016 election were nothing more than debunked conspiracy theories.

    In reality, the facts on both these issues are clearly substantiated. And as I pointed out last week, many of the witnesses that House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff called during the impeachment proceedings confirmed concerns about both.

    Man, really sounds like something important that Donald's DoJ should be investigating. Yet for some reason, he instead took out Facebook ads smearing a likely election opponent. Kinda makes one wonder - if even Donald isn't taking the claims seriously, why should anyone else? Time to move on to another made-up talking point, I'd think.

    John Solomon is less a reporter than an active participant in the opinion pieces he scribes. Well, he's not pretending to be a reporter anymore.

    How a Veteran Reporter Worked with Giuliani’s Associates to Launch the Ukraine Conspiracy — ProPublica

    John Solomon foisted a bogus story on Fox News viewers. His punishment? A contract.

    Read the article for other examples (links provided so you can read for yourself).

    Vindman Burns Trump Booster John Solomon: ‘All the Key Elements’ of His Reporting ‘Were False’

    Solomon appears to be an "unreliable narrator". He was moved from reporter at theHill to "guest opinion" because of complaints of the factuality and bias in his stories; he is no longer with them now since he left to start his own outlet.
