Radio host Hugh Hewitt said it is vital that Republicans “stick with the facts” and avoid exaggeration during the impeachment inquiry.
Hewitt’s comments came in a column for The Washington Post on Wednesday evening.
“It is crucial for Republicans generally and conservative supporters of President (Donald) Trump specifically to stay far away from exaggeration during the impeachment process,” he said.
“It also distracts from the need to drive home the more important point that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff D-Calif. is denying the president and his colleagues in the minority due process as impeachment hearings opened Wednesday.
“Instead, what needs defending is that not only did Trump not commit an impeachable offense, he committed no offense at all, though his controversial back-channel lawyer, former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, has created a political headache for the president.”
Hewitt insisted “opportunities are lost every day when the president’s defenders overreach into conspiracy theory.”
And he said there is not “deep state” conspiracy against Trump.
“More important, there is not now, nor has there ever been a “deep state” in the United States,” he said.
“There is zero need to juice either the condemnation of Schiff’s hearings or to slag career military or diplomats who are in disagreement with the president or the administration.
“Stick with the facts. They are with the president.”
