In yet another example of the broadcast networks covering up how the corrupt Russia investigation was burning down, neither ABC, CBS, nor NBC saw fit to cover the Wednesday testimony of former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates before the Senate Judiciary Committee. In her tele-hearing, Yates admitted to Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that disgraced and fired FBI Director James Comey went “rogue” in the investigation of former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Instead of reporting on Yates’ shocking testimony, all three networks boasted about former Vice President Joe Biden deciding to give his convention speech from the safety of his basement in Delaware. In stark contrast, Fox News Channel’s The Story and correspondent Gillian Turner weren’t afraid to inform viewers of what Yates said.

“Chairman Lindsey Graham dove in headfirst, grilling Sally Yates about that now-infamous Oval Office meeting with President Obama and FBI Director James Comey on January 5, 2017,” Turner noted before playing this soundbite of Graham getting Yates to spill about Comey:

SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Did Comey go rogue?

SALLY YATES: You could use that term, yes.

GRAHAM: Finally.

“That wasn't the only criticism Yates had for Comey,” Turner added.
