Well, it’s clear now even to the Democrat-aligned media that the impeachment hearings were a bust. They failed to increase support at all for removing President Trump.
Not enough people, apparently, believe that Trump’s shenanigans with the Ukrainians were bad enough to send him from the West Wing back to Trump Tower, given that in the end they got their missiles and nobody investigated Biden. And given that Biden probably does need investigating.
Anyway, Democrats are going to give it one more try with impeachment hearings in the Judiciary Committee next week! Those will be led by Jerry Nadler of New York, who is so unappealing that Nancy Pelosi decided she had to give the main show to the Intelligence Committee and Adam Schiff, who is only slightly less uncharismatic.
According to Politico:
House Democrats have one final shot to drive up public support for impeachment, with a slate of hearings in the House Judiciary Committee beginning next week.
But even Democratic lawmakers acknowledge public sentiment might be impossible to move in the weeks before an anticipated historic House vote on impeaching President Donald Trump.
“I think people have made up their minds on this in a lot of ways,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “But I think, frankly, what should drive us is the evidence and the facts and our oath of office.”
