When the GOP so-called Weaponization of the Federal Government committee held their first meeting it was a springboard into a litany of conspiracies and MAGA outrage.
The stage was set with a lineup out of Fox News. Two of the witnesses from Fox News, both contributors to the right-wing channel set the tone for the kangaroo court - former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (who recently left the democratic party and went to the dark side), and a former FBI agent Nicole Parker.
Three of the GOP's favorite grief squad were star witnesses. Giving their version of reality was Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson - as well as right wing constitutional lawyer Johnathan Turley. There was another former FBI agent, Thomas Baker who testified for the dark side.
The TV-caliber lineup hosted MAGA friendly trolls attacking the FBI over nebulous grievances with no evidence. With Jim Jordan leading the pack the circus was complete.
Just before the farce got underway the White House sent a clear message against the corrupted panel calling it, "A Fox reboot of the House Un-American Activities Committee" that "weaponizes Congress to carry out the priorities of extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress."
As it stands, I agree with Democrat Rep. Raskin who's on the panel when he said, "This all could take oversight over a dark alley" and that the panel's name was "pure physiological projection."
