Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) stopped by Hannity to discuss the Jan 6 Committee hearings; Cruz says the hearings are a joke and essentially a commercial for the Democrats. “This is not a congressional hearing,” Cruz says.
“This thing is a joke. This is not a congressional hearing. Congressional hearings are designed to be a fact-finding mission. You have opposing sides. This is a political Democratic campaign commercial,” Cruz says.
“What would you think if you had a criminal trial, and the judge says ‘we’re only going to allow the prosecution to speak?”

Meanwhile, during a recent panel discussion on Meet the Press NOW, NBC anchor Chuck Todd asked Politico correspondent Betsy Woodruff Swan, “Does the Jan. 6 hearing break through at all?”
“I don’t think it does,” Swan responded. “I’ve talked to two separate Democratic members of Congress over the last couple of weeks about Jan. 6, obviously can’t say who, and both of them have said offhandedly, nobody gives a bleep about January 6th when they’re talking about their districts and the way that elections play out.”
