President Trump on Twitter tore into the Democrats for their “vicious” attack on Acting AG Whitaker during the House testimony.
President Donald Trump weighed in Saturday on the “hatred and scorn” coming from House Democrats questioning acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker during a hearing Friday.
“The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see,” Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday. “When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn! The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!”
Members from both sides of the aisle questioned Whitaker during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Friday. Whitaker’s exchanges with House Democrats sometimes got heated. Democratic Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee held up a copy of the Constitution and became outraged when Whitaker refused to answer her questions with “yes” or “no.”
“Mr. Attorney General, we’re not joking here and your humor is not acceptable,” Jackson Lee told Whitaker. “Now you’re here because we have a constitutional duty to ask questions and the Congress has the right to establish government rules.”
