House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) threatened to hold former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in contempt of Congress because of his "refusal to answer questions" relating to the Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.
"Mr. Lewandowski, your behavior in this hearing room has been completely unacceptable. It is part of a pattern of a White House desperate for the American people not to hear the truth," Nadler said. Ive been asked several times today whether the Committee will hold you in contempt. It is certainly under consideration."
"There is a far more troubling level of contempt on display here today and that is President Trump's role in your refusal to answer questions. The pattern of obstruction laid out in the Mueller report has not stopped," Nadler explained. "You showed the American people in real time that the Trump administration will do anything and everything in its power to obstruct the work of the Congress. The president's lawyers are sitting behind you right now to make sure that you do not answer us."
According to Nadler, Congress is focused on exposing "corruption, obstruction and abuse of power."
"Make no mistake, we will hold President Trump accountable," Nadler concluded.
Lewandowski refused to answer questions relating to previous conversations with President Trump. He cited executive privilege as his reason for not providing insight.
From The Hill :
The remarks came after Democrats tussled for more than five hours with Lewandowski over his involvement in a possible obstruction episode as laid out in special counsel Robert Mueller 's report. In particular, they sought to have the longtime Trump ally answer questions about Trump asking Lewandowski to pass along a message to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2017 that urged him to reverse his recusal and set limits on the Russia probe.
Lewandowski ultimately turned to then-White House official Rick Dearborn to deliver the letter. Dearborn did not ultimately follow through, telling investigators that the request made him uncomfortable.
Like, oh wow, the nadster is a tough guy.
I’ll give Nadler 100 bucks to a charity of his choice if he can find his own penis
Contempt is an apt descriptor whenever I think of congress.
What a detestable, disgusting individual Nadler is.
Contempt is not nearly a strong enough word to describe what I hold for this puddle of slime.
It would be an honor to be held in contempt by those treasonous freaks of nature.
Can’t type what I think of him.
I’d bet Nadless can’t. :^)
I couldn't watch the whole thing because the urge to puke, every time a Socialist opened their mouth, was too strong.
Give him one of these.
Owwwwww. I’ll bet Lewandowski will straighten up and fly right after that admonishment. NOT! Now if nadless had threatened ripping one on him..................
All he has to do is touch his nose and you are out a hundred bucks.
Front Butt is getting snarky.
I like bets where probability of winning is on my side. I’m in.
Wonderful entertainment, I think it was worth about 32,500 votes in New Hampshire among Democrats to put him in as Senator.
Lets Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks Donate Today!
To paraphrase the immortal words of Mae West:
Q: Are you trying to show contempt for this Congress?
A: I’m trying my best to hide it.
Lewandowski needs to start a Go Fund Me page for this.
This is madness.
This has really gone too far.
Even Pelosi can see the insanity of Nadler and those pushing him to fins a crime, any crime even where none exist.
