Despite the fact, polls showed that as impeachment dragged on more and more people were souring on it, ABC, CBS, and NBC were excited for the possibility of even more House hearings. Their Monday excitement was spurred on by the ruling of a federal court judge, who said former White House Counsel Don McGahn had to testify before Congress. The ruling went against what the White House was hoping for and the broadcast networks were absolutely giddy thinking about this could affect impeachment.

Now, this is a potential game-changer in the impeachment inquiry,” proclaimed CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell with a giggle. “Paula Reid is at the White House and has been reading through this 120-page ruling as quickly as she can. But Paula, break down, what's the significance of this?”

CBS White House correspondent Paula Reid noted the ruling was a “long-awaited decision” and “a win for Democrats, because it effectively pierces the White House's long-standing effort to block current and former officials from cooperating with House investigators.”

The two were also invested in figuring out how this development could impact the testimonies of other people they and the Democrats wanted to grill.
