Sunday on her MSNBC show, former White House press secretary Jen Psaki let House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) have it with both barrels, calling him out for the hypocrisy of his demanding that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg testify before his committee on the issue of his office’s possible future indictment of failed former president Donald Trump.
Psaki began by noting that Jordan and other Republicans in Congress only want to question Bragg so they can try and extract information from him that would benefit the disgraced ex-president.
“From a legal perspective, experts point out that Jim Jordan and his colleagues are overestimating their power including my guest [former AG Eric Holder] I just had on, the former attorney general of the United States. The former counsel to the House Judiciary Committee also pointed out this week that Congress cannot lawfully use its investigative power to engage in law enforcement. Even if they resorted to a subpoena, he also wrote, any such subpoenas should be unenforceable.”
As for Jordan’s hearings on the “weaponization” of government in the Biden administration and fake “whistleblowers,” Psaki remarked, “It turned out they weren’t really whistleblowers at all. In fact, they weren’t even credible witnesses. That was according to a Democratic report which revealed that none of those witnesses provided anything of substance. Instead, they endorsed conspiracy theories related to January 6th, the efficacy of Covid vaccines and the outcome of the 2020 election.”
At the end of the day, Psaki concluded, Jordan and his GOP associates are all hat and no cattle:
Jim Jordan is certainly no Sherlock Holmes. Matter of fact, he’s one of the dumbest son of a bitches currently walking on the face of the Earth.
