The panel on Sunday's edition of Kasie DC acted as Democratic strategists, giving House Democrats advice ahead of the public testimony of career diplomats as part of the impeachment inquiry. Guest host Ayman Mohyeldin asked former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Adrienne Elrod, "are the Democrats who are going to participate in this week at all haunted by what they saw happen with Bob Mueller earlier over the summer?" Elrod responded in the affirmative: "I think they are not only haunted by that but I think they learned some very valuable lessons from that." When asked by Mohyeldin what lessons she was referring to, Elrod urged Congressional Democrats to "keep the message very tight and very simple," predicting that taking her advice would "go a long way toward persuading the American people to be more on the side of impeachment." Supposedly objective New York Times reporter Nick Confessore also acted as a Democratic strategist, urging Democrats to "use words like extortion, and bribery, and corruption" while questioning the witnesses in front of the American people.
