GOP’s Jim Jordan gets mocked at Oversight hearing after ranting that Democrats are trying to interfere with the Supreme Court

Published

On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee held a hearing to decide whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for not complying with subpoenas regarding the Committee’s investigation into the Trump Administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

Republicans tried to stunt the proceedings, but their efforts to do so were swiftly blocked.

“Democrats know the Supreme Court will rule by the end of this month on the citizenship question but they hope to use this committee’s oversight power to create a controversy around this issue, try to impact the Court’s decision,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) claimed.

“The Democrats now want to hold, as I said, both the Secretary of Commerce and the Attorney General in contempt because of an alleged lack of cooperation with the Democrats’ request for information. The facts stand in stark contrast to the Democrats’ claims they are not getting information from the agencies,” Jordan said.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-MA) swiftly shut him down.

“The distinguished member must live in a different world,” said Connolly.

Published

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote.
