Apparently Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) didn’t take kindly to drumpf’s play acting AG Matthew Whitaker smarting off to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler earlier today, and made his displeasure known to Mr. Schweddy Bald quite clearly. Noting that Whitaker had retweeted an article claiming that the Mueller Investigation was a “lynch mob” Jeffries reeled off a list of the criminal indictments and guilty pleas obtained by Mueller before delivering his coup de grâce:
“I’m confused. I really am. We’re all trying to figure out, who are you? Where did you come from?” Jeffries, a member of Democratic House leadership seen as a possible future Speaker, asked Whitaker during the House Judiciary Committee hearing.
“And how the heck did you become the head of the Department of Justice?” Jeffries stated. “Hopefully you can help me work through this confusion.”
When Whitaker began to respond, Jeffries promptly cut him off and chided: “That was a statement, not a question.”
“I assume you know the difference,” he said.
Watch and enjoy. It’s a thing of beauty.
