On last night’s episode of Special Report with Bret Baier, Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist explained how the “frustrated” Democrats put all their cards on the Mueller probe and came up with nothing. Ian Schwartz noted Hemingway’s words at Real Clear Politics, writing:
The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway said on ‘Special Report’ Wednesday night that Democrats are in a difficult situation following the release of the Mueller report. Hemingway said the base wants President Trump impeached after they were whipped up in a frenzy by the party that claimed they had concrete proof of Russian collusion.
BRET BAIER, FOX NEWS: Mollie, you know, after this meeting this morning with House Democratic caucus Nancy Pelosi came out and said essentially they’re not going down the impeachment road. They’re going to continue the investigations. And then after the Rose Garden, she gave what she just said there suggesting, well, maybe we are.
MOLLIE HEMINGWAY, THE FEDERALIST: Right. It was interesting to watch both of those people. Adam Schiff is someone who claimed in the previous two years that he had evidence of treasonous collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election which obviously is not true because we just finished the Mueller report and Mueller who had all the same capabilities and more than Adam Schiff did not find treasonous collusion.
You have Nancy Pelosi claiming that the obstruction is right in front of us and you can see it with your own eyes. And I think what they are really trying to say is we’re very frustrated that Donald Trump is president and we really wish he were not the president and we really have an angry base who would very much like to see him go. That’s fine. Impeachment is a political process. If they think they have a political case to make for removing him they should go forth with that. But, really this is a difficult situation for them because they have a base that got whipped up into a frenzy through false reports that they participated in and now they are wondering what happened. They put all their cards on this Mueller probe and came up with nothing and it’s very difficult for them to deal with.
