Talk about grading on a curve. During an appearance on NBC’s Sunday Today, political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd boasted that the Democratic-led impeachment hearings of President Trump were “very successful” and could “maybe” get him convicted in a court of law. But, he would admit that polling showed that Democrats were not successful in moving the needle of public support for impeachment.
After introducing Todd, host Willie Geist touted that “a long list of witnesses told a very similar story about what happened in Ukraine and the involvement of the Trump administration in that deal,” but lamented how there were “some witnesses we haven’t heard from: John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, [and] Mick Mulvaney…”
Todd explained that Democrats squeezed all the hearings into a “reasonable period of time” because “timeliness here matters too,” because holidays and the Democratic primaries and caucuses were coming up. He then boasted about how the hearings “were very successful both in revealing that there’s a lot more we don't know. They’ve proven quite a bit. And maybe in a court of law, they could win that case.”
