Hugh Hewitt was patted on the head by the MTP panel when he tried to claim Adam Schiff destroyed his credibility in an interview with Chuck Todd. Schiff rather stiffly defended the need for an impeachment inquiry, but Hewitt argued Schiff was biased and therefore disqualified from conducting the investigation."You have your non-answer" -- watch Chris Wallace grill Stephen Miller about why Trump thought it was appropriate to use his private attorney to dig up dirt on Biden -- and not let Miller get away with obfuscating. pic.twitter.com/wKr1fpIX5Z— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) September 29, 2019
We expect judges to be objective and unbiased, but we expect prosecutors to believe in the legitimacy of their investigation and prosecution.
Steve Scalise, on the same program but in an interview, evaded so baldly and tried to spin so badly Chuck Todd(!) called him on it. On the panel the 2nd time around told Hewitt his comments were absolutely irrelevant (spoiler: they were). When Chuck Todd is calling out your bullshit, you're bullshit-fu is weak indeed.
Defenders of Trump really don't have anything to build a defense with at all.
