On Episode 57 of War Room: Impeachment, constitutional lawyer David Rivkin answers host Jason Miller’s question if the first House Judiciary hearing featuring four constitutional lawyers has “the credibility to go and swing public opinion” or if it’s “sellable to the American people”.
Rivkin responds, “The answer is resoundingly no.”
He explains: I don’t see how this is going to provide any oxygen for what is a nakedly, brutally, partisan exercise.”
To demonstrate the partisanship, Rivkin points to the “rhetoric in the Majority Report. It basically begins by accusing Trump of having won in 2016 with Russian help, which by the way is not only false not only by matter of first impression but certainly after the Mueller investigation.”
Also, the fact that “you’re not going to have a single Republican in the House voting for it” further demonstrates the partisan nature of this inquiry.
He continues: “Of the [previous impeachments], always political, this is the ugliest, most partisan, least fair exercise with the least substance involved.”
