Tulsi Gabbard Sure Acts Like a Spoiler
Why is she lying so much?
I asked Thursday why the Republicans were lying about the House investigation into possible impeachable offenses by the president. More than 30 House “conservatives” pushed their way into a secure room at the Capitol Wednesday, delaying testimony for five hours. They demanded to know what the Democrats were hiding. They weren’t hiding anything. Other Republicans were in the room at the time the yahoos barged in.
Other Republicans were in the room, because that’s how congressional committees work. They are bipartisan—all of them—with a mix of majorities and minorities depending on who’s in control of the House (which itself is determined by the majority). Everyone in the Congress knows Republicans sit on all the committees, because you’d be an idiot not to. So now I have to ask: why is Tulsi Gabbard lying?
The Democratic representative from Hawaii, who’s running for president, appeared on Fox News last night to say: “We as members of Congress do not have access to the information that’s being shared. I think the American people deserve to know exactly what the facts are, what the evidence is being presented as this inquiry goes on.”
