Fox News anchor Bret Baier called out NBC’s Chuck Todd on Friday for suggesting Congress draft up impeachment papers for President Donald Trump.

On WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall,” Baier said he was “struck” by Todd’s comments. Todd said on Wednesday that a “functional Washington” would be investigating and talking about drawing up impeachment articles for the president.

“I was most struck of all the punditry — I think it was Chuck Todd who said that Paul Ryan should take the reins and get the Judiciary Committee to start the impeachment process with Republicans leading the way and made this impassioned plea for Republicans to start the impeachment process,” Baier said.

“I can tell you just from covering this place that’s not going to happen,” he added.

WMAL cohost and Daily Caller editorial director Vince Coglianese asked what Todd was thinking when he brought up impeachment.

“I don’t know, you’re going to have to ask Chuck,” Baier replied. “I’m a friend of his but I thought it was interesting and it’s part of the narrative of, you know, we went from not talking about impeachment to it’s all impeachment.”

“Clearly you’re going to see more. It’s coming to a head,” he concluded.
