Byron York Explains Why Democrat's Impeachment Push Flopped, in 3 Tweets

Chief political correspondent, Washington Examiner, Fox News contributor and author of The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy Byron York just explained why Democrat’s impeachment push has bombed with the general public, in 3 brutal tweets:
“Theory: Before hearings, public heard Democratic/media impeachment narrative. Trump abused power, engaged in quid pro quo/extortion/bribery, endangered national security. Support for impeachment grew”

“Then hearings showed what impeachment was actually *about.* Significant part of public went: Huh? Support for impeachment began to trail off.”

“In other words, impeachment hearings had exactly opposite effect from Democratic hopes. They wanted compelling TV show to dramatize Trump wrongdoing. Instead, got insanely complicated bureaucratic tale, mostly about Ukraine. Sale not made.”

Byron York nails it and is exactly right.
Democrats never made the sale on impeaching President Trump.
More from the Washington Examiner:
“Why did President Trump release aid to Ukraine on Sept. 11 after holding it up for 55 days? Democrats and Republicans have been fighting over the answer throughout the impeachment debate.
Democrats and their allies in the media contend Trump freed up the aid only after the White House learned that a whistleblower had filed a complaint against the president. “The reason the aid was produced was that the whistleblower had come forward at that point,” CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin said Tuesday. “Basically, the Trump administration was busted. They got caught, and that’s the reason they released the money.”
“They got caught,” the Democratic impeachment leader, Rep. Adam Schiff, said Thursday. “That’s the reason aid was finally lifted.”
Republicans offered an entirely different explanation. Rep. Jim Jordan, a leader of GOP impeachment pushback, said the aid was released after Trump heard positive assessments of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky from Vice President Pence, Sen. Ron Johnson, then-national security adviser John Bolton, and others.
“They all became convinced of the same thing,” Jordan said last week. “Hey, Mr. President, this guy is real. Go ahead and release the dollars.” Jordan also noted that the new Ukrainian parliament was working on anti-corruption reform measures at the time.

Trump’s true reason for releasing the aid matters to the Democratic impeachment scheme. If he released the money after learning about the whistleblower — after he realized the jig was up — then that, at least to Democrats, suggests guilt. If he released it after gaining confidence in Zelensky, that does not suggest guilt.”
