I can't believe I watched the whole thing.
It was like watching ancient Romans throw enemies of the state to the lions.
In this case the victim fought back.
Yesterday's House Judiciary Committee hearing was a circus spawned by desperate Republicans trying to protect Trump.
The meat they were throwing out was Peter Strzok, an FBI agent whose personal emails showed he hates Trump.
Despite being vindicated of professional bias by the IG's report, the Republican committee members tried to spin that Strzok was part of a conspiracy corrupting Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia.
The sense of rats trying to hold onto a sinking ship was present, as each GOP member tried to outdo the other with vile attacks against Strzok's integrity with no proof to back up their accusations.
It was probably one of the lowest moments in Congress. The partisan kangaroo trial (that's what it really was) was an embarrassment to anyone who believes in laws and truth. The Repugs made no attempt to abide by normal parliamentary procedures.
At one point Rep. David Cicilline, D-RI. said, "This is about promoting a narrative, you're a prop." He also noted that Strzoks texts were "the perfect foil" for Republicans.
