MSNBC's Johnson Cheers Impeachment Inquiry: 'Democracy is Vaguely Working for Once'


While Congressional Democrats did their best to make it sound as though they were sad about the impeachment inquiry, MSNBC's Jason Johnson had a different take. Appearing on Deadline: White House Thursday, Johnson declared "I may be in the minority here. I'm not somber today. I'm thrilled...Oh my gosh, democracy is vaguely working for once. You have people who are taking the responsibility and oversight seriously for once. I am so glad this happened." Echoing talking points recited by Rachel Maddow last month, Johnson delivered a message to Republicans: "I hope they realize that 50 years from now, when our kids...are reading about this, they want to be the person who was on the right side of history." After Johnson accused Trump of trying to "bribe members of the Senate" into voting for his acquittal, New York Times reporter Nick Confessore expressed glee that "the first line of his obit forever is going to read that he was impeached."
