Hold up … we thought the whole idea of this show trial was to wow the American people. They hired a veteran TV producer to make sure they had a compelling multimedia presentation. Rep. Jamie Raskin teased that they had more evidence on former President Donald Trump than just “incitement.” We were promised never-before-seen footage. Democrats are setting up watch parties for this thing.
The Washington Post, however, reports that aides to the January 6 select committee “sought to temper expectations” Thursday. Don’t expect any “shocking revelations” … this is more like a prosecutor’s opening argument.
Wait a minute. What about blowing the roof off? From WP: ‘Committee aides sought to temper expectations of any shocking revelations during Thursday’s hearing and instead framed the session as an opening argument.’ https://t.co/xrNwdsnUKW pic.twitter.com/v0YVFlCrrr

They literally tell you what it is: a NARRATIVE.

You can’t build up expectations that your Jan 6 hearing is going to be a BLOCKBUSTER with all sorts of new info… then come out a few hours before it starts with “actually we’re just connecting dots of what’s already out there.” https://t.co/JZgkxyOZI2

This reminds me so much of the Mueller hoax. Same actors, same playbook. Everything was already leaked to the media well in advance of the hearings/report and anyone expecting any real damaging information will be angry and sad again. It’s so pathetic lol. https://t.co/Sr7YiINH9P

The big revelation is going to come from Adam Schiff himself in a prime time, star studded bonanza. The committee is just then warmup act. They’re Wayland Flowers and Madame. Schiff is Sinatra.

This is going to be as boring as watching paint dry and there are literally liberals out there frothing at the mouth waiting for their fragile reality to come true.
Unfortunately for them, they live in Clown World and do not understand that Donald Trump is not Hitler.

We remember all of those “It’s Mueller Time!” tweets.
