Trump loyalist Corey Lewandowski testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday and it quickly devolved into a circus in which the former Trump campaign manager refused to answer basic questions from Democrats.
During the hearing, the House Judiciary Democrats sent out a tweet accusing the White House of orchestrating a coverup of the president’s actions as outlined by special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
However, many Twitter users went on to hammer the Democrats for purportedly treating the constantly obfuscating and stalling Lewandowski with kid gloves.
Check out some of the reactions below.
HOLD HIM IN CONTEMPT AND SLAP GODDAMNED CUFFS ON HIM NOW.
Why would you let this slide?

Y’all need to use your power of Congress. We are sick of being embarrassed and shamed by the GOP. They attack our very laws and are tearing down our civilization

@RepJerryNadler @SpeakerPelosi the Democrats are once again showing they are afraid to actually use the power of the office they hold……Lewandowski should be held in contempt, jailed….and this exec privilege letter should be used as evidence of more obstruction from the Pres

What a surprise. So hold him in contempt. Put him in jail. If there are absolutely no consequences to criminal behavior, @POTUS and his minions will never stop,

Lewandowski shouldn’t walk out of that hearing room without being held in contempt…if he does, you’ve proved how powerless you really are.

Then hold Lewandowski in contempt and have him arrested! Let him cool his heels in jail for a while. Stop letting them get away with everything! There are never any consequences. ENOUGH. DO SOMETHING!
