The democratic party has not yet found themselves tired of the “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory, as evidenced by their latest attempts to pry incriminatory evidence from the mouths of Donald Trump’s inner circle.
The latest Trump loyalist to find himself before the House Judiciary Committee is the President’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who did everything in his power to frustrate the democrats who questioned him.
Lewandowski visibly frustrated committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., during the Democrat’s first question – when the witness, in an apparent effort to stall for time, repeatedly asked Nadler to point to the specific section in the Robert Mueller report related to his question. Lewandowski was following White House orders not to discuss confidential conversations with the president beyond what was already public in the former special counsel’s report.
Asked by Nadler if he met alone with President Donald Trump in June 2017, Lewandowski said, “Could you read the exact language of the report? I don’t have it available to me.”
Lewandowski was consistent in his objection to the partisan hackery that was on display.
Lewandowski later declined to play along with certain questions. New York Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries asked Lewandowski if he was Trump’s “hitman, the bag man, the lookout, or all of the above?”
“I think I’m the good looking man, actually,” Lewandowski replied.
At another point, Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee told Lewandowski, “You are obviously here to block any reasonable inquiry into the truth or not of this administration.”
Lewandowski fired back that he was unable to give her a response because it wasn’t a question but a “rant.”
During his questioning, Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson said, “Mr. Lewandowski, you are like a fish being cleaned with a spoon — it’s very hard to get an answer out of you.”
Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking republican member of the committee, lambasted the entire hearing as “re-run season”, referring to the democrats’ continued attempts to rehash the RussiaGate investigation through this pseudo-impeachment.
