Imagine during a trial, the defense attorney finishes his opening statement and the judge in the case breaks into thunderous applause.
Sounds crazy, no?
But that’s pretty much what happened during the morning session of the testimony of FBI texting machine Peter Strzok.
The Democrats on the committee broke out into thunderous applause.
Of course, they also did everything humanly possible to prevent this hearing from happening.
I didn’t watch it all. I couldn’t.
But I saw enough to know that the Democrats were there to act as Strzok’s cheerleaders, defense counsel and human shields all rolled into one.
I kinda expected it, didn’t you?
After all, I sat through about six of the eleven hours of Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony and it didn’t take long to figure out that the Democrats were there to shield her from scrutiny.
I even created this image in honor of it.
It was shameful the way the Democrats behaved today, but hardly surprising.
And it sure as heck makes you wonder just what the hell they’re afraid Americans might learn from an actual questioning of Peter Strzok.
And could someone – anyone – please stuff a sock in Elijah Cummings’ big, fat mouth?
Check out the cheap stunt Elijah Cummings is pulling right now in Strzok hearing–aides holding up giant posters w photos of 5 individuals Mueller has prosecuted w GUILTY written across their faces. Wow, Dems are REALLY worried about this Spygate scandal probe getting traction!

Cummings is a piece of crap.
Never forget that he actually conspired with the IRS and DOJ to target voter integrity groups like “True the Vote.”
He’s a corrupt, uneducated big-mouth.
But he wasn’t the only Democrat trying to upend this morning’s testimony.
90-minute takeway from Strzok hearing: Democrats have forged new strategy for shutting down oversight. Interrupt, call points of order, argue over points of order, demand recorded votes, eat up time, protect the witness. Hope Republicans are taking notes.

Democrats are terrified of whatever Strzok knows. I wonder why.

In addition to exposing the Democrats as partisan hacks and unserious dolts, the other helpful thing to come out of this hearing thus far is exposing Peter Strzok as the arrogant, entitled prick that he is.
And that’s never a good look on television.

But the truth is I never expected Peter Strzok to cooperate with Congress.
The FBI and DOJ have made it abundantly clear that they have no respect for Congressional oversight. So why would Strzok – who is part of this culture of corruption – be forthcoming to the very political body to whom he answers?
But what’s remarkable to me is the utter lack of respect Congressional Democrats have for their own Constitutional role in our Republic.
Why the hell be a member of the House of Representatives if you don’t even want to do the things you are constitutionally charged to do?
100%. Rep. Nadler has taken a clear position against Congressional oversight of the DOJ and FBI. He's weaponizing points of order to gridlock the hearing and shield Strzok from questioning. He's taken a clear stance against transparency in government.

Yet these are the same clowns who want to be put back in charge of the Legislative Branch come November.
Um. How about no.
