Oversight Dems Troll GOPers With Signs Of All Of Mueller Probe's Guilty Pleas

Source: Talking Points Memo



By Tierney Sneed | July 12, 2018 11:09 am

The House Oversight Committee’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings (D-MD) highlighted the number of guilty pleas special counsel Robert Mueller has secured in his Russian probe, in a demonstration that prompted a brief squabble over the signs Dem staffers were holding in the hearing showing who had entered guilty pleas in the investigation.

Cummings was making the point — in opening remarks for the highly anticipated hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok — that Republicans on the committee had previously said they would not seek to interfere with Mueller’s investigation. Cummings accused the Republicans of breaking that promise after Mueller started racking up guilty pleas, including from some people close to President Trump.

At first, Republicans appeared to protest the signs, but let Cummings move forward with the remarks when Democrats asked what rules the staffers were violating.

Watch the clip below:

3. The republicans looked stunned..awesome display - great visual

of those who are already in the guilty column....we won't be distracted by the trolls and the scam we are witnessing....Strzok is strong..everything gowdy and goodlatte are doing is parsing words..taking words out of context...A word..

Strzok is well versed on Russian agents and their activity - Rachel was awesome in her review last night of the FBI and catching a few Russian agents... ...he saw it, he knows it..

Gowdy and goodlatte SOOOOOO want to know - Nope...Strzok is a career FBI agent and he took an oath to the constitution that he will honor..unlike those of the govt of pootie....also known as the GOP!!!!!

4. Why does it say ...

Clinton Email Investigation
in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen?

This is about the Russian Probe, not about Clinton's Emails!

Talk about subliminal messaging.

14. "Rules? We don't need no stinking rules!"

Typical RepubliCONs!

I mean, after all: what good is Law and Order when they can’t get their way all the time?

17. Flawed Logic

If an investigation cannot be conducted because of political personal bias, then no investigation anywhere can be conducted as we all have political preferences and certainly not a Clinton email investigation conducted by Republicans. They are literally so stupid they contradict their own ability to throw dirt on Democrats.

22. This Needs to Be Shown Over and Over Again by Media

This is a major event and it needs to be shown on tv over and over again and put through the echo chamber the same way they show Trump’s lies and drama king performances day after day! Why isn’t this happening?

24. Beautifully done and so timely.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus are ahead of the rest of the Democratic leadership by calling attention to the criminal behavior of Trump's associates. I hope the rest of the party takes heed and speaks up in a similar way across the country and in Washington.
