Too often media pundits have undue influence on politicians. They are often wrong. Ali Velshi pointed out that they were wrong on impeachment and with their Jan 6th caution.
Ali Velshi calls it right
Ali Velshi was the Professor/Historian-In-Chief in this one. He reminded the audience that after a corrupt Trump tried to bribe the leader of Poland, that many thought impeaching him would have been electoral sabotage for the Democrats Many pundits believed it would so rile up the Trump’s base that it will sail him to victory. Of course, Donald Trump lost resoundingly in 2020. Democrats did the right thing.
Velshi then articulated what Democrats should do.
“Here’s the lesson,” said Ali Velshi. “Democrats should take the same approach to investigating the Capitol Insurrection. House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, a possible witness in the investigation, wants to undermine the January sixth select committee. He picked unserious undemocratic Republicans who should have been rejected from the committee, and then when speaker Pelosi followed through and rejected some of them, Kevin McCarthy pulled all of his picks from the process. Pundits and reporters might cast these developments in terms of winners or losers or optics. The lesson, Democrats should ignore that trash. This is about democracy. This is about a serious thoughtful investigation of a serious domestic terror incident.”
Velshi then told Democrats to ignore the doubters and news media.
“Kevin McCarthy doesn’t win because Speaker Pelosi looks partisan,” Velshi continued. “It’s not the how. That’s not how it works. The news media should know better than that. And Democrats must ignore anything that harkens back to the doubters of the first impeachment investigation. The same people who were wrong then are wrong now. And it seems Speaker Pelosi for one might already know this lesson.”
Nothing else needs to be said.
