GOP operative freaks out over train wreck impeachment hearings: ‘No one wants to be here!’

Republican lawmakers’ attempts to undermine impeachment witnesses Bill Taylor and George Kent on Tuesday were widely seen as a train wreck for President Donald Trump, and one unnamed GOP operative sent a message to a Bloomberg News reporter freaking out about how poorly it’s gone.

In a message sent to Bloomberg’s Sahil Kapur, the operative said that the hearing has been “a massive f*cking sh*tshow” and claimed that “no one wants to be here.”

Kapur’s source wasn’t the only Republican who came away with a bad feeling from the opening hearing.

Ari Fleischer, a former spokesman for President George W. Bush who also reliably defends Trump, said that he didn’t understand where Republicans’ line of questioning was going, while former Republican Tom Nichols expressed astonishment that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and his colleagues were spouting off baseless conspiracy theories about Ukraine.

After Collins tweeted, "Chairman Nadler has no choice but to postpone Monday’s hearing in the wake of a last-minute document transmission that shows just how far Democrats have gone to pervert basic fairness," he got buried in derision.

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's tenure has not resulted in voters becoming more conservative, and instead, he is driving them into the arms of more liberal and progressive candidates at the local level who are then using their newfound power to change Democratic policies at the national level.

Trump's negative influence is turning into a positive for those candidates -- particularly in the big cities.

"From New York City to Los Angeles, many of the nation’s biggest cities have turned even harder to the left under President Donald Trump, putting pressure on local officials to embrace the leading progressive presidential candidates — or withhold their endorsements entirely for fear of antagonizing newly energized activists," the report states. "It’s a drastic political shift in some places, where for decades entrenched party bosses crushed any signs of life on the left or tended to put the weight of big-city institutional support behind Democratic establishment-oriented candidates."
