This was an EXPLOSIVE interrogation.
Hawley was ON FIRE!
Senator Hawley: All I can tell you is, I am SHOCKED by the statements that I read in your briefs. I am SHOCKED by this kind of language. I’m particularly shocked by it in light of the Supreme Court’s clear teaching that this kind of animus and this kind of hateful comparisons are out of step with with the protections of our law and are not permissible!
