Conspiracy theories about “very gross” things were the talk of ABC’s “The View” Tuesday as the hosts discussed impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Comedian Joy Behar was confident — without proof — that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others defending Mr. Trump are behaving like men with something to hide.

“69 percent of Americans want to see new witnesses, and want to see documents,” Ms. Behar said, NewsBusters reported. “That doesn’t seem to impact, you know, Moscow Mitch at all because you know what? Because I’m curious, what is he hiding? You know everyone who’s defending Trump seems to be hiding something, you know?”

The co-host then speculated that two of Mr. Trump’s defenders’ past comments about deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein also suggest a conspiracy.

“His two lawyers, [Alan] Dershowitz and Ken Starr, I don’t know what they’re hiding,” she said. “They did defend Epstein. I’ll just say that. They defended Epstein. I’m not saying they were involved with Epstein, but it seems like there’s something very gross about all these people that they have something to hide.”

Ms. Behar promptly rejected co-host Meghan McCain’s suggestion that former President Bill Clinton’s relationship with Mr. Epstein was worth exploring.

“[Bill Clinton] is not in the picture right now,” she said.
