BPR: Anyone hoping for fireworks at today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing was not disappointed.
Democrats brought former Trump Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to testify before the Judiciary Committee. The move is part of a strategy to nail Trump on the long-debunked Russian collusion and obstruction allegations that didn’t pan out for Dems during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s lackluster testimony.
Since Lewandowski is not a government employee, Dems were hoping to pull an “end run around Trump’s executive privilege assertions,” Darren Samuelsohn and Kyle Cheney reported for Politicoback in June.
Samuelsohn noted on Twitter as Lewandowski took the stand, his testimony might be something Democrats would come to regret. At least, according to Fox News contributor Joe diGenova, who was reportedly relishing the day when Lewandowski would be called to testify.
“If they want to call Corey [Lewandowski], that’d be their biggest mistake,” diGenova added. “Ooohoo! I hope they do it. They’re going to regret it.”
Somewhere, diGenova is likely smiling.
Lewandowski was furiously accused by Dems of running out the clock as he demanded a copy of the report Rep. Jerry Nadler was citing before answering questions.
Nadler was not prepared for that as can be seen in the first part of the fiery exchange below:
