Democrats Admit Jan. 6 Hearings Are Political Theater

The New York Times laid out the Democrat Party’s playbook for the January 6 hearings Tuesday, with some Democrats admitting in the article that the hearings are political theater.

“With their control of Congress hanging in the balance, Democrats plan to use made-for-television moments and a carefully choreographed rollout of revelations over the course of six hearings…to persuade voters that the coming midterm elections are a chance to hold Republicans accountable for it,” The New Times reported.

Several Democrat operatives and politicians were quoted in the story admitting that the hearings might provide the political clout their party needed for the midterm elections. Battling rampant inflation, a war in Eastern Europe and rising prices for gas and other goods, Democrats seem poised to use the January 6 hearings to make a political point about Republicans.

“When these hearings are over, voters will know how irresponsibly complicit Republicans were in attempting to toss out their vote and just how far Republicans will go to gain power for themselves,” New York Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney told The New York Times.

Democratic New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries said Monday on Twitter, “The House will fully expose the cult’s extreme effort to overthrow the U.S. government.”

Jeffries did not respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment.

Anat Shenker-Osorio, the founder of the left-wing political consulting firm ASO Communications, said the hearings could grab the attention of Democrats’ much-needed swing voters come November, The New York Times reported.

“Jan. 6 is very much salient and highly negative to these likely midterm voters,” Shenker-Osorio said, according to The New York Times.

However, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama and CNN analyst David Axelrod expressed skepticism about Democats’ hearings playbook Tuesday. Axelrod wrote that the party is “casting the hearings as a political cudgel.”

“If I were a member of the 1/6 committee, stories like these, casting the hearings as a political cudgel, would make me very unhappy,” Axelrod said.

“Let facts speak for themselves,” he added.

Democrats have hired former ABC News president James Goldston to produce the hearings. Goldston was president of ABC when the network quashed the story of Jeffrey Epstein’s accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre back in 2015.

    Keep telling yourself that there is any chance you can win an election without cheating. US citizens are more concerned with rampant spending by government, inflation, high gas prices, formula shortages and supply chain issues. Focus on correcting these issues and actually work for the many hard working legal citizens than the undocumented and lazy people who just want a hand out. Start going after BLM and antifa the same way you are trying to go after the individuals arrested on Jan. 6

    It’s patently obvious the Dems wish to put THEIR ‘spin’ on the Jan 6 narrative! THey wish to portray it as a horrible, disgustingly perverted attack on the very basis of our government! To them, this is in the same vein as cursing GOD! For ‘government’ IS their ‘god’, their tool to CONTROL their ‘subjects’, the FIRST and LAST thing they use to maintain control! They now are as the runaway horse with the bit in its teeth! And until Nov elections results become fact in January, they are stretching the ‘envelope’ to the MAXIMUM! To be sure, it MAY just be their LAST HURRAH for decades! The voters have now seen the utter stupidity and beyond of the far-left weirdos currently the ‘tail wagging the dog’ of the Dems! AND the results of all this horsesh1t: horrendous inflation, shipping disasters, shutting down our oil industry, causing fossil fuel shortage, with our ‘fearless bleater’ begging Russia, OPEC, Venezuela for oil, , baby formula shortage, enemy countries invading allied countries and flexing their military muscle, border invasion, …..! Getting tired of listing all the problems!
