“The timing is deliberate,” he said. “The Trump-hating media will breathlessly report on the Trump-haters who will present the impeachment case. Across most of the media, that’s a given.”

“Compelling stuff?” he said. “Not.”

Varney compelled the audience to pay attention to the “real, meaningful” action of the formal signing for the China trade deal.

“The president, his cabinet, members of Congress, state governors, China's vice premier, the commerce minister and the governor of the Bank of China,” he said. “They'll all be there at the White House."
