Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker testified on Capitol Hill Friday before the House Judiciary Committee. This comes amid just one week before the Senate confirms President Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, William Barr.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday voted, along party lines, to advance Barr’s nomination to the full Senate for confirmation.
During the hearing however, Democrats put on a full spectacle where they turned it into a full blown clown show. It was a competition of who has the most “Trump derangement syndrome.”
Democrats, instead of holding the hearing on oversite, expressed their hate, rage, and anger at Whitaker and President Trump.
President Trump took note of the radical Democrats and their insanity during the hearing, and he blasted them on Twitter Saturday morning. (Continued Below)
President Trump wrote on Twitter, “The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see.”
Trump also pointed out, “When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn!”
Then he said, “The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!” (Continued Below)
The President is right. Unless you live under a rock, you you saw first hand how Democrats pretended it was a “nomination hearing” for Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) blasted Democrats’ oversight of the Trump administration in his opening statement on Friday.
“This is nothing more than a character assassination,” Collins said, adding that Democrats were playing a hide and seek game and accused them of putting on a show.
“This hearing is pointless,” Collins added.. “If this is the way we’re going to go, if this is where we’re going then we’ll have plenty of stunts, we’re going to have plenty of theatrics. Bring your popcorn. I’m thinking about maybe we set up a popcorn machine at the back because this is what it’s become. It’s become a show.”
President Trump’s official tweet:
The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see. When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn! The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!
