Dem goes viral for 'eye roll' at Republican during Cohen testimony

Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D), the delegate from the U.S. Virgin Islands, drew attention on social media Wednesday for her reaction during GOP questioning at a hearing featuring President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

During the hearing, Plaskett could be seen shooting a look as Rep. Gym Jordan (R-Ohio) as he expressed frustration with not being provided a copy of Cohen's opening statement well in advance of the former lawyer's testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

"I just have a simple motion, Mr. Chairman," Jordan, the top Republican on the panel, says in a video clip of the segment that has since gone viral. As Jordan speaks, Plaskett turns to look in his direction and give what some social media users interpreted as an eye roll.

Jordan had repeatedly been expressing his frustrations with his Democratic counterparts for allowing Cohen to testify despite being sentenced to prison for lying to Congress in addition to other crimes. The former Trump lawyer is set to go to jail in May.
