It is a sham, a witch hunt, political theater but what is to be expected from the dog and pony flea circus running DC?

No Thanks, I will catch the cliff notes on the radio and "The Five" and if I feel a need to palm my forehead I will listen to the coverage on NPR.
How quickly some forget how many Benghazi hearings there were.

So you are another one who wants to hear the spin the next morning from the news casters, rather than hearing directly from the witnesses under oath. Interesting.

Yes, the highlights. Did not watch the Bengahzi stuff which seemed a lot more of a waste than this.

Why is any different than watching the news and/or getting information online?

After all, sOOO many folks are going to say they don’t believe it even when one is under oath.

The televised hearings will achieve nothing.

The partisan Democrats have already foreordained their conclusions and will watch it to confirm what they already believe and will listen to nothing else. The partisan Republicans will ignore it outright. The independents won't pay attention because it's in the past, all politicians are corrupt, and what about inflation?

I have many unanswered questions, and I would rather hear from those involved, UNDER OATH.

Nah. I doubt I would have wanted to watch the Salem Witch Trials either. Inquisition-like behavior doesn't interest me. Confess! Confess! Confess! Yeah... I'll pass.

I heard they are only televising the prosecutors side of the story. You will have to look elsewhere for the rebuttal.

I’ll catch the ending and watch it repeatedly when they fall to “get him”.

The 'rebuttal' is basically whenever a Pub is up to ask questions.

Dems asking a dem = Trump guilty, trump bad.
Pubs asking a dem = Dems bad and you are bad.
Pubs asking a pub = Trump is not guilty. This is Dems ploy.
Dem asking a pub = Trump bad, and you are bad.

There,..I saved some time! lol
