Elizabeth Warren skips out during House Oversight hearing, claims scheduling conflict
Washington Examiner | 5/24/11 | Philip Klein

Posted on 05/24/2011 6:08:35 PM PDT by Nachum

Elizabeth Warren, President Obama's controversial choice to head the new consumer financial regulatory agency, skipped out of a House Oversight hearing before answering questions from two members of the committee, claiming that she had reached an agreement allowing her to leave at that time. But Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-NC, chair of the subcommittee holding the hearing, said no such agreement existed. “You're making this up, Ms. Warren,” McHenry fired back when Warren claimed she only agreed to come under the condition she could leave

Warren is a Leftist weasel who fits the BO mold perfectly. They are destroying the USA and no one is doing anything to stop them.

You're making this up, Ms. Warren

McHenry was too kind. He should have told her she was LYING.

I like to put a face to a name. Ran a search, ouch!

It just went on and on...

Makes me wonder what it is that makes hard-core "liberals," or more accurately, communist agenda democrats, look like that.

Generally speaking they are unhappy, hateful fanatics and that is why they all look like that.

After several minutes of back and fourth, during which none of the other committee members had come back from casting votes to ask questions, McHenry begrudgingly dismissed Warren.

So, basically.....she had time to argue over the minutiae of the meeting time, but no time to answer questions.

OK.

Why hasn’t the House voted to cut funding immediately to this rogue agency? Ms. Warren should have more respect for the people who sign her paycheck.

Can’t she be charged with contempt of Congress.

I mean I have a lot of contempt for Congress too, but can’t they charge her?

And the RINOs will vote to confirm her even after she lied to their faces in their own hearing.
