The Impeachment Hearings Have Been Useless
Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have spent the vast majority of their impeachment hearings trying to persuade voters that bureaucrats believe Donald Trump is impulsive, self-serving, and misguided -- all of which is unsurprising, and completely irrelevant to the matter at hand.Quite often, in fact, the most breathless coverage of these tedious hearings has absolutely nothing to do with the allegedly impeachable offenses of quid pro quo or "bribery" -- or whatever focus group-tested terminology Democrats are deploying today. Take the newest blockbuster witness, Fiona Hill, a Russia expert whose testimony nearly every outlet promised would be "explosive." She "lashes Rs for siding w Russian theory instead of us on 2016," Politico's Jake Sherman informs us.Having a witness repeat "Russia" a whole bunch of times in front of the House Intelligence Committee's impeachment panel isn't nearly as fascinating or significant as reporters might imagine. Certainly, it has little to do with the supposed investigation undertaken to ferret out impeachable behavior.For one thing, Hill's broader contention is dubious. While Trump hasn't called out Russia for interference, various other GOP leaders have done so on numerous occasions, including in a Senate intel report. And a person can simultaneously believe that both the Russians and Ukrainians meddled in 2016 to various degrees (and the Iranians.)Even if one doesn't, though, failing to adopt the Democrats' histrionic tone over the threat of Twitter bots is neither criminal nor unconstitutional.
