As you have no doubt heard, the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have brought in convicted felon and Obama/Hillary supporter John Dean to ‘explain’ why the Mueller report is reason to impeach Trump.
Dean was disbarred for obstructing justice and defrauding the United States during Watergate.
But while the hearing was taking place, or thereabouts, a helicopter crashed on top of a building in Manhattan killing the pilot. Reports are now that the helicopter malfunctioned and the pilot was trying to land the aircraft:
source: helicopter took off 34th heliport, suffered mechanical failure… Tried emergency landing 787 7th Ave. Pilot killed. No terrorism.

In any event, this helicopter crash has been the focus of all the media coverage since the news broke, preempting the Dean hearing that Democrats had hoped would be a TV spectacle:
Democrats were hoping today’s hearing would be agenda-setting, widely watched.
All the cables are on the helicopter crash.

Liberals on social media are furious about the coverage:

#cnn #MSNBC Why the non-stop coverage af the helicopter crash? It appears to be an accident and we can get more information when you have it instead of listening to you speculating. I would like to see the John Dean testimony. @CNN @MSNBC

Enough. This is clearly just a local story now. The rest if the country would like to see John Dean. Would you want to spend hours watching coverage of a plane crash in Brookings Or? Well we’re not that interested in this helicopter crash anymore

Enough with helicopter crash, get to John Dean! @MSNBC

Ali Velshi is spending a whole goddamned hour on a helicopter crash? The country’s falling apart, for Chrissakes. What’s John Dean doing? What’s that maniac Trump doing?

One tweeter actually suggested a conspiracy theory that the helicopter crash was to distract from the hearing:
Anyone else think it’s an odd coincidence that a helicopter in NYC came down and took over all of the news channels RIGHT as the Congressional Hearing and testimony from John Dean on the Mueller Report started…
She deleted her tweet after it started going viral. Of course.
There are a ton more tweets where these came from but this gives you a good idea how much liberals are hoping this hearing will take down Trump.
