The exchange shows how warped and frustrated democrats are over their lack of Russian collusion evidence, and the mounting evidence against them of a set-up and entrapment of President Trump.
“Mr. attorney general, we are not joking here,” Jackson Lee said. “And your humor is not acceptable.”
Jackson Lee asked Whitaker a series of yes or no questions about his role at the Justice Department and oversight of Robert Mueller’s investigation.
At one point, Jackson Lee was interrupted and asked for more time, as usual.
“Can the clock be restored?” Jackson Lee asked.
Whitaker quipped, “I don’t know if your time has been restored or not.”
Jackson Lee then got on her high horse and made a speech about her ‘duty’ and government rules.
She said Whitaker was there “because we have a constitutional duty to ask questions and the Congress has the right to establish government rules.”
“The rules are that you are here, so I need to ask the question and I need to have my time restored so that you can behave appropriately, I will behave appropriately as a member of the Judiciary Committee,” Jackson Lee complained.
It’s funny how democrats always think that ‘government rules’ apply to others, not them.
Jackson Lee had an aide who doxed and threatened Senators and their children during the Kavanaugh hearings. She was also recently forced to resign as chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, or she’d be voted out. The incident involves a scandal where Jackson Lee persecuted a woman who made a claim of sexual harassment.
But of course, Jackson Lee’s hypocrisy is on par with the best of democrats, and she can lecture Whitaker on ‘government rules,’ while happily breaking them whenever it suits her, many people argue.
Whitaker would not answer questions about the Mueller investigation, since it is ongoing. And, since he forced the panel to withdraw the subpoena threat yesterday, there’s nothing they can do about it.
Many people recognize that the anger is just due to frustration over the fact that the left’s carefully plotted impeachment plans are failing fast.
The senate just announced there was no collusion, and the House had already come to that conclusion.
