Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) ignited chaos during a House Judiciary Committee on Thursday as he accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of "hiding information."
At one point during the hearing, the room burst into laughter after Jordan asked about subpoenaing phone calls.
Many social media users have concluded that Jordan's fiery questioning backfired on him.
Comedy Central's "The Opposition with Jordan Klepper" also created a short video, using audio from a soccer match, to mock Jordan.
