The Democrats desperately need Donald Trump as a punching bag.
They have nothing else as a party that unites them.
But Nancy Pelosi’s crusade against Trump could be backfiring in one shocking way.
Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th House Select Committee hearings are not going exactly as planned.
Democrats hired ABC News producer James Goldston to turn the hearings into a primetime television spectacle, but the ratings for the hearings have underwhelmed.
The first hearing in primetime only garnered half the viewers of the most recent State of the Union Address, and lost out to the broadcast networks’ usual Thursday lineups.
Another one of the hearings was preempted by golf and moved to NBC News’s streaming service.
Worse yet, the J6 hearings seem to be emboldening support for Donald Trump.
NBC’s Natasha Korecki and Adam Edelmen reported that “NBC News talked to more than two dozen voters in both Washoe and Clark counties — the two most populous in Nevada — and found that the Jan. 6 committee hearings that captivated Washington not only failed to persuade these voters but pushed them in the opposite direction…[As voters] wearing stars-and-stripes socks pulled up to their knees or collecting into small groups to grouse that developing countries had superior election integrity, Republicans were light-years away from granting credibility to the Jan. 6 committee.”
A Reno retiree named Judy Cameron told NBC, “It might as well be impeachment No. 3 for Donald Trump…This is their big push to get Donald Trump off the ballot.”
Cameron is exactly correct.
Democrats are worried that Trump could run again and disrupt their globalist agenda.
A resident named Tom Berenato said to NBC, “It’s all political and designed to try to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again.”
Berenato added that the committee has “nobody on it with opposing views,” only “anti-Trumpers” like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Berenato is also correct.
In fact, Pelosi broke with Congressional norms and blocked Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy from assigning who he wanted.
Instead, Pelosi picked the two anti-Trump Republicans because they were not going to ask compelling questions such as why Trump’s request for additional security was denied, why security let people into the building and took selfies with them, why thousands of hours of footage have not been released, and why certain figures who incited people to go into the Capitol mysteriously received no punishment at all.
The J6 hearings are nothing more than a show trial, and voters see that for what it is.
