IT’S DONE: Dems High Hopes Are Shattered: Impeachment Talks Are Over
The Democrats seemed to have their hopes sky-high with finally getting former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to sit and give his testimony.
They were obviously hoping that he would reveal something that would give clear cut evidence to call for President Trump’s impeachment.
Instead, all they got was a firecracker that just sizzled and burned out which has caused some in the media to claim that the Democrats’ hopes for impeachment are now dead.
According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, he even refused to answer a question over 155 times.
Mueller’s appearance before the House Judiciary Committee was so bad that even NBC’s own liberal Chuck Todd said that the hearing had created a series of “narrative nightmares for Democrats.”
During a break in the testimony, NBC switched to Chuck Todd who explained how the whole thing was not working well for Democrats.
When asked if the testimony is bringing the report to life like a movie Todd said, “In no movie would the best actor, the lead person here has the fewest words spoken. And the problem here is you — basically the narrative that Democrats were hoping that Bob Mueller would be telling is essentially they are telling him and he is saying, ‘that’s true. yes, that’s correct.’ I wrote it down two narrative nightmares for the Democrats, one was ‘I stick with the language I have in front of you,’ or ‘whatever was said will appear in the report.’ He has no interest in helping to providing color, context and that does, I think take away some drama.”
The testimony before Congress was broadcast all across the country and it didn’t look good for the Democrats at all.
Mueller looked and acted confused throughout the event, even acting as though he didn’t even know that the Dossier was sponsored by Fusion GPS which was in the report.
Many time he had to ask for questions to be repeated a second time, and often seemed unaware of what was going on.
