(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) NBC News NOW anchor Chuck Todd questioned Politico national correspondent Betsy Woodruff Swan on live TV earlier this week, about whether the J6 hearings will have much political impact.
In response, Swan suggested that the contrived drama is falling on deaf ears, Business and Politics Review reported.
Swan replied in the negative.
“I don’t think it does. I’ve talked to two separate Democratic members of Congress in the last couple weeks about Jan. 6 — obviously, I can’t say who — and both of them have said, offhandedly, nobody gives a bleep about Jan. 6 when they are talking about their districts and the way that elections play out,” she said.
While Swan suggested that she believes the Capitol protest is a “very important issue,” she ultimately said that it appears it will bear little to no fruit for Democrats in the upcoming primaries.
What really matters going into the midterms, in her opinion, is the state of the economy.
“Top-tier issues are material concerns. How are people paying their mortgages? How much does it cost to get milk and bread?” Swan said.
“How much does it cost to get gas? Do these hearings result in different electoral outcomes for Democrats? I have yet to see any actual evidence that they do.”
Before the camera cuts away from Todd, he can be seen crossing his arms in a tantrum as he listens to Swan tell him that most Americans do not care at all about the J6 Committee or its consequences.
Things have only gone downhill from there, leading the Committee to reportedly postpone further hearings until July.
