The removal of Dobbs could be seen as an attempt to offer balance to programing while not alienating less ideological voters.

He was originally signed to Fox by its former chief executive Roger Ailes in 2011.

He has remained loyal to Trump as an outspoken advocate of his economic and immigration policies.

Dobbs was particularly angered that Republicans did not do more to argue Trump's baseless voter fraud claims and often voiced his anger on his show.

Trump's election fraud lawyers Rudolph Giuliani and Sidney Powell appeared on his show and were given a platform through which to push the unfounded claims even further.

In a show following the election on November 30, Dobbs told Powell that Trump must take 'drastic action, dramatic action to make certain that the integrity of this election is understood or lack of it, the crimes that have been committed against him and the American people'.

'And if the Justice Department doesn’t want to do it, if the FBI cannot do it, then we have to find other resources within the federal government,' he added.

Both Giuliani and Powell have also been named in the Smartmatic defamation suit.
