House Judiciary Preparing to Hold Corey Lewandowski in Contempt After He Trolls Dems, Refuses to Answer Questions During Hearing
The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to hold Corey Lewandowski in contempt for refusing to answer questions during this week’s ‘impeachment hearing.’
The House Judiciary Committee held its first ‘impeachment hearing’ Tuesday afternoon.
Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski appeared before the Democrat-led committee Tuesday and the hearing descended into chaos as Lewandowski refused to answer questions and trolled the inept Democrat lawmakers.
Lewandowski, a loyal and devoted supporter of Trump defended the President during his opening statement and slammed the feckless Democrats for their $40 million Trump-Russia witch hunt.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler became flustered after Lewandowski refused to answer questions about his private conversations with President Trump and defaulted to his scripted non-answer.
One of the best lines during Tuesday’s hearing was in response to Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s (TX) incoherent rant.
Lewandowski shut down Sheila Jackson Lee with his perfect response. “Could you repeat the question? I didn’t hear it. Just a rant,” Lewandowski said.
The Dems are triggered and want to hold Corey Lewandowski in contempt.
The Hill reported:
Democrats are pressuring House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) to hold Corey Lewandowski in contempt of Congress after the former Trump campaign manager stonewalled lawmakers during his testimony earlier in the week.
“He operated in contempt of Congress, and yes, I believe he should be” held in contempt. “And I’ve expressed that to the chair,” Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.), a member of the Judiciary panel, told The Hill on Thursday.
“The only purpose to do it is to have teeth in it and to send a message to Mr. Lewandowski that he has to come forth, tell the truth and live up to his obligations under the subpoena,” she added. “His performance was an absurdity.”
Both Nadler and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have expressed interest in holding Lewandowski in contempt, with Pelosi telling members on Thursday that Democrats should have acted “right then and there” at Tuesday’s Judiciary hearing when Lewandowski refused to cooperate with Democrats.
But Pelosi also seemed to defer any decisions to Nadler.
“I trust the committee and the path that they are on,” she said Thursday.
The Democrats no longer legislate. All they do is harass President Trump and his associates as they continue with their coup to remove Trump from office.
