I’ll log my prediction now: despite some major revelations, it will be a complete dud. This will not be a game changer or some seminal moment we look back on like the Watergate hearings. It’s a blip in the news cycle and forgotten a week after the last hearing.
I certainly hope I’m wrong, but I’ve been burned too many times. The Mueller Report, two impeachment hearings - none of these things move the needle anymore.
Alright Democrats, if you wanted to know what Congressional Democrats have in store for Trump and his cultists, enjoy tonight. I hope they don’t fuck it up. But the answer is “Tonight”. That’s the case against Trump. Tomorrow, it’s over. Trump walks, small people get jailed.
(DOJ case against Trump? Wake me up then, will you?)
Interesting follow-along on the NY Times website (not sure if it’s subscriber-only, since I am myself a NYT subscriber). Includes chime-ins from Maggie Haberman who I’ve always liked reading and listening to her stuff.
