After Home Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry towards President Donald Trump on September 24 for allegedly abusing energy to dig up dust on former Vice President and 2020 candidate Joe Biden, Fox Information, not surprisingly, responded with a torrent of rhetorical assaults towards the Democrats usually and the Home management particularly. Community stars Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson carefully interrogated the motives of Democratic leaders, like speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Home Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff (D-CA), accusing Democrats of being in a state of “hysteria.”

Yeah watch. I’m gonna fuck your asshole you piece of shit son of a bitch. Yeah come get me. I assure I’ll fuck your brains out.”

Throughout Meister’s subsequent arrest October 25, legislation enforcement brokers discovered two pistols, one rifle and about 800 rounds of ammunition—weapons he wasn’t legally allowed to personal due to his prior felony convictions. Between the threatening cellphone name and the cost of  unlawfully possessing weapons, Meister faces two felony counts and is pleading not responsible to each of them. He stays incarcerated, with a trial date slated for February 11.

A movement submitted by his legal professionals requesting that the 2 expenses be tried individually characterized Meister as a frequent Fox Information viewer with an aversion to Democrats.
