Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) on Wednesday mocked his Republican colleagues in the Senate Judiciary Committee for bringing up Hillary Clinton's emails during their hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr.

“I’ve been listening carefully to my Republican colleagues and it appears they’re going to work together and coordinate the so-called ‘lock her up defense.’ This is not supposed to be about the Mueller investigation, the Russian involvement in the election, the Trump campaign and so forth,” he said sarcastically.

“It’s about Hillary Clinton’s emails. Finally we get down to the bottom line. Hillary Clinton’s emails and questions have to be asked about Benghazi and TravelGate, Whitewater – there’s a lot of material we should be going through today according to their response to this.”

Taking a more serious tone, Durbin added: “That is totally unresponsive to the reality about what the American people want to know.”
