Former RNC Chief Destroys Jim Jordan’s ‘Dog And Pony Show’ Hearings: ‘Who You Mad At?’

Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele hilariously mocked House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan’s “weaponization” hearing held earlier this week, noting that the entire venture is turning out to prove exactly the opposite of what Jordan and his GOP allies in the House of Representatives had been hoping for.

Speaking with host Charles Blow on MSNBC Sunday morning, Steele was asked, “Michael, did Jordan’s performance during these hearings actually help Democrats prove their point, the only party weaponizing the government is the Republican Party?”

“Any time Jordan opens his mouth he proves that point,” Steele responded. “The reality is there’s no substance to any of this. This is just the dog and pony show, it’s like the worst you can come up with in the world where you can just make stuff up. So you’re trying to connect dots that do not exist. You’re grasping about little lines of this and a little line over here about something else, and none of it ever comes together.”

“So this idea of weaponization of the government is being done by the very people who are supposed to be investigating weaponization,” Steele continued. I guess by the Biden administration? Didn’t this all occur during Trump’s term in office? It was his Justice Department and FBI. It just kind of proves the point.”

“So, are you mad at Trump? Jordan, Jim, are you mad at Trump?” Steele concluded “Are you mad at Mr. [Bill] Barr? Who you mad at? What are you trying — where was the weaponization against Trump’s own people by Trump? Because that’s basically what we are looking at here.”

Jim Jordan Gets Reminded Of His Sketchy Past After He Asks God To ‘Bless’ Whistleblowers

Clearly lacking in the area of self-awareness, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) thought it’d be a great idea to tweet out a blessing on whistleblowers after his Thursday hearing featuring two such witnesses from the FBI blew up in his face and made him and House Republicans look like complete fools.

The two men who testified on Thursday — Marcus Allen and Steve Friend — aren’t actually whistleblowers, many Democrats rightly noted. Instead, they directly interfered with or refused to take part into FBI investigations of the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, as CNN reports.

The FBI officially revoked Allen’s security clearance on May 3 and listed a variety of reasons for doing so, including a September 29, 2021, email in which Allen called on FBI officials to exercise “extreme caution and discretion in pursuit of any investigative inquiries or leads pertaining to the events of” January 6, according to a copy of the letter.


Friend, a former FBI agent working out of Florida, had his security clearance suspended in September 2022 for objecting to using a SWAT team to arrest a subject whom the FBI said was at the Capitol illegally on January 6. Friend, in a previous interview with CNN, said the force was unnecessary against an individual who had committed a misdemeanor offense.

Whistleblowers? Hardly. They’re just disgruntled clowns who got their feelings hurt when they were reprimanded for not doing their jobs. And they’re also getting paid by a former adviser to failed former president Donald Trump.

Yet despite all of those facts, Jordan tweeted out this:

That led to many Twitter users reminding Jordan about his own sketchy past while an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University. Several wrestlers on that team say they told Jordan they were being sexually abused by a team doctor, yet Jordan never brought the allegations to the proper authorities at the university.

Lauren Boebert Files For Divorce From Her Husband And Twitter Is Having A Field Day

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) filed for divorce from her husband of over two decades, according to The Daily Beast, which obtained the court documents.

The April 25 filing seeks to dissolve her marriage to Jayson Boebert, with whom she shares four sons. An affidavit of service, also obtained by The Daily Beast, indicate that Jayson Boebert appeared to be caught off guard by the court proceedings. He chased away a process server with an expletive-laden tirade and let his dogs loose when he was served with the divorce papers, the affidavit said.

“Once he learned that he was being served with Dissolution of Marriage papers he was extremely angry,” the process server wrote. “I tried to hand him the documents but [he] did not take them. He started yelling and using profanities, and told me that I was trespassing, and that he was calling the Sheriff’s Office. I told him I was leaving the documents on the chair outside of the door, he closed the door then let the dogs out.”

The document noted that Jayson was cleaning a gun and drinking a “tall glass of beer” when he was served.

As you’d expect when it comes to a hypocrite like Congresswoman Boebert, who repeatedly talks about the importance of “family values,” she issued a statement which sounds like something written by a fake Christian who needs to try and make something go away as quickly as possible before she gets back up on her sanctimonious soapbox

“It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband,” the statement said. “I am grateful for our years of marriage together and for our beautiful children, all of whom deserve privacy and love as we work through this process. I’ve always been faithful in my marriage, and I believe strongly in marriage, which makes this announcement that much more difficult. This is truly about irreconcilable differences.”

Twitter had a field day with the news.

WATCH The Mayor Of D.C. Swat Down A Republican At A Hearing On Statehood

Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) went toe to toe during a House Oversight Committee hearing on possible statehood for the District.

The confrontation began when Higgins asked Bowser if she had legal counsel with her and would like to amend earlier testimony.

“Mayor Bowser, you’ve just testified regarding your specific role, your personal role. In the days leading up to January 6th and the D.C. National Guard. Do you have counsel present, ma’am?”

“No,” Bowser responded.

Higgins: “Do you wish to amend your testimony in any way regarding what you what you stated?”

Bowser: “I do not.”

Higgins then asked:

“The capital is the home of the entire seat of our government: executive branch, legislative branch, judicial branch. The president is here. The vice president is here. 435 congressional offices. 100 Senate offices. The Supreme Court. All departments of the government are headquartered here.”

The congressman then added:

“All agencies are headquartered here. In your knowledge, you’re a very intelligent American. You have a clear understanding of history. In your knowledge, ma’am? Is there any other municipality in these United States that has access to our seat of government as the citizens of Washington, D.C.?”

Bowser replied, “Actually, they all have more access because they have voting members of Congress.”

Applause broke out in the hearing room.

A clearly angry Higgins told Bowser, “I’ll ask you to restrict your answer to my question.”

“You and I are you familiar with the conversations, debates and discussions that our founders engaged in regarding what significant role the nation’s capital would play once developed and populated and their personal access to the seat of government.

“Is there any municipality in the country that offers that level of personal access to the seat of government of these United States?”

But the mayor was more than equal to the challenge, telling Higgins, “I’ve already explained that I’m born and raised here, and I’ve spent most of my life here. I’ve been serving in elective office.”

Higgins interrupted, “When you were growing up.”

Bowser: “I have never been to an event where I happened to bump into 100 senators.”

House Oversight Chair Comer Claims He ‘Lost’ Key Witness In His Biden Investigation

According to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), his fact-free investigation of President Joe Biden and the Biden family’s “corruption” was going great until the key witness suddenly disappeared.

During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Fox host Maria Bartiromo, Comer was asked, “”You have spoken with whistleblowers,” she noted. “You also spoke with an informant who gave you all of this information. Where is that informant today? Where are these whistleblowers?”

Comer: “Well, unfortunately, we can’t track down the informant. We’re hopeful that the informant is still there. The whistleblower knows the informant. The whistleblower is very credible.”

“Hold on a second, Congressman,” Bartiromo said. “Did you just say that the whistleblower or the informant is now missing?”

“Well, we we’re hopeful that we can find the informant,” Comer replied, claiming the informant was in the “spy business” and “they don’t make a habit of being seen a lot.”

Comer then added, “The nine of the ten people that we’ve identified that have very good knowledge with respect to the Bidens, they’re one of three things, Maria, they’re either currently in court, they’re currently in jail, or they’re currently missing.”

Translation: Comer has no witnesses or informants. He made the entire thing up as a way to slag the president in retribution for a real criminal, Donald Trump, being impeached twice and under indictment in Manhattan.

The GOP strategy for attacking the Biden family is simple: They make a lot of noise, throw out a bunch of allegations, and then yell “Squirrel!!” when anyone asks for specifics.
