As if voters didn’t hold Pelosi’s congress in contempt before
I don’t think I have ever been in agreement with Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) before, but he was absolutely correct in trying to end the farce of Stephen Colbert testifying before a Congressional Subcommittee on immigration before it began.
At the beginning of the hearing, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, tried to pull the plug on Colbert’s testimony in an effort “to get to the bottom” of the issue.
“I would like to recommend that now we got all this attention that you excuse yourself and you let us get on with the three witnesses and all the other members there,” he said. “I’m asking you to leave the committee room completely, and submit your statement.”
But Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., chairwoman of the subcommittee, who invited Colbert to testify, intervened.
“Many are eager to hear his comments,” she said.
Colbert replied that he would only leave at her request.
“I’m here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she would like me to remove myself from the hearing room, I am happy to do so,” he said. “I’m only here at her invitation.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Fox News she thought Colbert testifying was “great.”
Makes you wonder where the grown-ups are that are supposed to supervise this kindergarten.
