“Do Republicans really want total transparency here? Think about that. Do they really want public hearings?” asked Lemon. “If they did, they wouldn’t be relying on stunts like storming the deposition yesterday on Capitol Hill.”
Republicans were in “full-on stunt mode” because “the facts, the evidence” tell “a story they don’t want you to hear,” said Lemon. They may soon get their wish, however, he added.
“Democrats are planning public hearings, possibly as soon as mid-November and (former Ukraine Ambassador) Bill Taylor could very well be on the list to testify in open session,” Lemon noted. “And no stunt is going to distract from that.”
