To call the Mueller hearings a waste of time would be an understatement, though it did reveal that the Democrats have no faith in 2020 by their desperation to impeach President Donald Trump.
No one put the results of the Mueller Hearings in better context than former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy who appeared on Fox News to talk about what happened. As brutal as Gowdy’s take was, it was tremendously fair.
Bret Baier was in the midst of discussing that Director Robert Mueller had clearly not written his own report, signaling that bias did indeed play a tremendous part and putting impeachment further out of the Democrat’s grasp.
“Democrats today are not closer to impeachment than yesterday,” said Baier.
“They’re not closer to anything other than wishing this never happened. Bad facts make for bad witnesses. Bad witnesses make for bad hearings. This one was an abject, miserable failure,” responded Gowdy.
He was just getting started.
“The person who learned the most about he Mueller report today was Bob Mueller,” he continued. “I say that sadly. He was not engaged. He did not interview the witnesses. He clearly didn’t write the report which means those under him did, which means the issue of bias is all the more important.”
“It was a terrible day if you were a Democrat,” said Gowdy. “I do want to give them credit for this; they managed to have a hearing without calling a convicted felon as a witness, so I do want to give them credit for that.”
“The Micahel Cohen hearing may have been more interesting TV-wise,” said Baier.
“QVC was more interesting than what I watched,” responded Gowdy.
Gowdy isn’t wrong. In the Democrat’s efforts to try to beat a dead horse, they ended up further exposing the fact that there are serious discrepancies in the way that Democrats were investigated vs how Republicans were. There are clearly a lot of blanks that still haven’t been filled in terms of what went down behind the scenes within the investigation.
But other than this, there were no bombshells, no moments where Trump was inspired to start biting his nails. Even CNN was admitting this was a total victory for Trump and put impeachment well out of the reach of Democrats.
