Head of the Congressional Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler decided that he wanted to have his staff attorney’s ask Attorney General William Barr the questions instead of Congress.
William Barr said no dice, and why would he? This has never happened in the history of our government as a nation.
Over the 206-year history of this committee, staff have never questioned witnesses in an oversight hearing. Never. Not once. So, to say Chairman Nadler’s demands are unprecedented would be an understatement.
Jim Jordan chimed in with this Tweet.
Nadler wants staff attorneys to question Barr for one of two reasons, or possibly both:
1. To embarrass Barr which will backfire because he much smarter than they are.
2. Because Nadler knows Barr will embarrass Dem committee members and the staff attorneys are sacrificial lambs.
One things for sure, the Democrats refuse to let this issue go, and refuse to accept losing or the truth.
