MOLLIE HEMINGWAY, SENIOR EDITOR, “THE FEDERALIST”: I think I’m going to disagree with the Guy a little bit on what the main issue is, because I think it actually relates to all of this, which is there has been an effort to get rid of Donald Trump going back many years. And the first efforts failed, whether it was going after the Electoral College or the Russia hoax, which went on for a very long period of time, and then it went into an attempt to get him out by claiming that by being upset at falsely being accused of being a traitor, that he was obstructing justice.
And it is in the midst of this and seeing how the Kavanaugh fiasco played out and whatnot that people just aren’t willing to believe what they are told is some huge problem, particularly when it’s running in the exact same style as these other things were run. And so I think the problem for Democrats is that people aren’t really buying what they are selling about it being a problem. They know enough about what happened in 2016, that our intelligence agencies were working with foreign governments to meddle in our own election. And the idea that you can’t investigate that without then getting in trouble again, I don’t think sells with a lot of people.
