Current acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker appeared before the House Judiciary Committee Friday Morning.
Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) decided to use his testimony to gain partisan political points but it didn’t work.
Nadler took a hard line with Whitaker and ask whether he had been “asked to approve any requests or action” for the special counsel. Whitaker’s response will go down in history.
“Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up, so… I am here voluntarily. We have agreed to five-minute rounds.”
The room erupted in gasps from Democrats who couldn’t believe that Whitaker was not letting Nadler bully him.
Nadler is likely angry because Whitaker refused to testify unless Democrats stopped threatening him with a subpoena – a request that Nadler was forced to grant.
We need more hard-liners like Whitaker to stand up to these Democrats.
SHARE if you are happy that Whitaker refuses to be pushed around by these political hacks!
