MSNBC Host: ‘I Do Not See An Overwhelming Case And Overwhelming Evidence By These Democrats’

Mainstream media is usually a staunch ally of the Democrat Party, often backing them against President Trump, but even they are now admitting Democrats lack evidence to impeach and remove him.

MSNBC host Ari Melber admitted on air that Democrats do not have an “overwhelming case” like they claim they have.

“I do not see an overwhelming case and overwhelming evidence by these Democrats to support convicting on obstructing Congress, and I’ll tell you why,” Melber said on Friday evening, as BizPac Review reports.

“What the Democrats are arguing is that basically, something that began three months before they actually voted to impeach should now be resolved by the removal of the president,” he added.

“So is there enough evidence to support the immediate removal of a president, three months and you’re gone as a precedent? I haven’t seen them land that. I don’t see the Democrats having provided enough evidence yet to convict on article two,” Melber continued.

BizPac Review reports, Melber went as far as to argue against others on the panel who disagreed with him:

Former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley tried to argue otherwise, but Melber quickly dismissed their arguments by noting that it was Democrats who chose in their impeachment haste to not wait for the courts to compel officials like former White House Counsel Don McGahn and former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify.

“We’re talking about not was Donald Trump wrong … but is it a removable high crime?” he said. “The argument would be, if you want McGahn you need expedited review and you need to argue it out, if you want Bolton, you need expedited review and you continue to pursue it, not saying ‘actually, we’re going to put that to the side because we’re in such a rush to move on this.’”

Before the impeachment process began, House Speaker Pelosi said she would not pursue impeachment unless it was overwhelming and bipartisan. She quickly changed her mind on the matter, choosing to proceed with the most partisan impeachment in U.S. history. Now, maybe mainstream media is starting to remove the cover from their eyes to see the partisan process for what it is.

And Melber wasn’t alone in his criticism:
