CNN, MSNBC Suggest Republicans Are Not in the Chamber for Trial

During breaks in the trial action happening on the floor of the Senate Wednesday, Democratic senators would make their way to their friends in the liberal media to get some softball questions served their way. A common narrative CNN and MSNBC were trying to get the senators to agree to was a conspiracy theory that suggested Republicans were not taking the trial seriously, with many of them not even present in the chamber. Unfortunately for the media, things didn’t go the way they were expecting.

In the midst of a reprieve during the 3:00 p.m. hour, Minnesota senator and presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar (D) was speaking to CNN’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash and was asked about Republican attentiveness. “Do you have a sense that they are listening, particularly, you know, those Republicans who are potentially persuadable, maybe not on, you know, on convicting him but on witnesses,” Bash wondered. The Senator said she felt like moderate Republicans were listening.

A short time later, Bash made another attempt to get the answer she was looking for. “There's a report that there are a lot of empty seats, particularly on the Republican side. You've been sitting there. You've been watching, have there been empty seats,” she asked.

CNN host Jake Tapper posed a similar question to New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez (D) just over three hours later.
