House Democrats have been demanding Attorney General Barr appear before the Judiciary Committee for months.
Many on the left have accused him of being a “puppet” for Trump’s political agenda.
They claimed they wanted answers from the AG.
But what do you think happened yesterday, when he gave testimony?
Democrats constantly interrupted him—cutting him off—not even letting him answer their questions.
It was so bad, Vice President Pence was forced to give a verdict:
Vice President Mike Pence strongly criticized Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday after they engaged in often heated questioning and commentary directed at Attorney General William Barr…
“…it was clear that the Democrats wanted to hear themselves talk more than they wanted to hear from the attorney general of the United States.”
It was pretty evident from the Democrats’ antics during the hearing that they were not interested in getting information from AG Barr.
They were quick with the “reclaim my time,” line—suggesting they had planned beforehand how they would prevent Barr from providing information.
Mike Pence accuses the Democrats of just wanting to talk, not trying to get answers. That seems to have been the case when looking over the hearing.
Democrats would hit Barr with a loaded question. When he tried to answer, they cut him off. Didn’t look like they were trying to uncover the truth about the Justice Department’s work.
Perhaps they wanted to make the AG look bad? Instead, they came off as bratty children.
Barr has been criticizing Democrats for ignoring the violence that has run rampant in blue cities. Once again, Democrats tried to brush off the rioting as “peaceful protests.”
Little of what Democrats asked Barr warranted a simple “yes” or “no” answer. If you make the effort to bring the Attorney General of the United States before you, you should expect him to answer adequately.
But that’s not what Democrats did. Were they even interested in the truth? Do they even care about the significant work the DOJ is doing across America?
Vice President Pence doesn’t seem to think so. He slammed the Democrats and their apparent scheme.
Even as many suffer from violence and riots, it appears House Democrats just want to play games.
- House Democrats refused to let Barr answer many questions during yesterday’s hearing.
- Vice President Pence accused them of walking to talk, not listen.
- Democrats cut off Barr frequently, expecting only yes or no to loaded questions.
