Politico reporter: Two Democratic lawmakers told me 'nobody gives a bleep about January 6'
Politico correspondent Betsy Woodruff Swan alleged Wednesday that two Democratic lawmakers spoke candidly about how the electorate does not care about Jan. 6.
43% say they think Trump believes the claims while 48% say the former president knowingly promotes falsehoods.
Todd went on to stress the party divide that showed a whopping 86% of Democrats claiming Trump is lying as 77% of Republicans say he believes the voter fraud claims.
'I don't think it does," Swan responded.
JAN 6: EAGER TO TROLL TRUMP, ‘MORNING JOE’ COMPARES VIEWERSHIP ACROSS ALL NETWORKS TO ‘THE APPRENTICE’"The reality is - obviously, it's a very important issue.
Obviously - like I've been covering this nonstop for the last year.
It's important, it's a key part of understanding American history and the democratic trajectory that this country is on.
It is also true at the same time and not at all contradictory that it's not a top-tier voting issue for people who are figuring out who they're going to support during the midterms," Swan told Todd.
Swan added, "Do these hearings result in different electoral outcomes for Democrats?
Much of the media has hyped the ongoing House Select Jan. 6 Committee hearings which have been reviewing the events that led up to the riot on Capitol Hill.
The House Select Committee is now planning to pause the hearings and resume them in July.
