Rep/ Doug Collins of the House Judiciary Committee tore into Congressional Democrats after witnessing the “pointless” hearing of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
Collins labeled the hearing a “character assassination” and specifically singled out Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler.
“We now know the reason for this hearing. It has nothing to do with oversight of DOJ,” Collins opened. “It has everything to do, as we found out this morning in a document dump from the Democratic side of this committee and also another committee, that this is nothing more than a character assassination.”
He blasted the “political theater” that politics had become and accused Democrats of attempting to vet Whitaker themselves. Something he suggested they could do, if they would like to try and win positions in the Senate.
“This hearing is pointless,” he noted while identifying the event as a sham. “If this is the way we’re going to go, then we’ll have plenty of stunts, we’re going to have plenty of theatrics. Bring your popcorn.”
