Even this one is a little late: Trey Gowdy Urges Acting AG Matt Whitaker to Blow Off Congressional Testimony.
"Although, Martha, I hope he doesn't. He's going to be the AG for another week. He's got about another week, so he's certainly not going to talk about his vision for the Department of Justice. He can't talk about Mueller. He can't talk about Rosenstein. He can't talk about any ongoing investigation, and he can't talk about any communications he's had with the president. So what's he going to talk about? He's not going to be there in a week."I saw a swathe of his "testimony" yesterday. Democrats were just rude. And he stayed in pretty good spirit because none of it really matters, it was all for show. You can see the whole 6 hrs here, or two minutes of the most asshole moments here.
Fresh from Da Caller, H/T to Insty, Jake Tapper Tore Into ‘Irresponsible’ BuzzFeed Editor For Publishing The Steele Dossier. A moment of honesty, or did he want it for himself?
After BuzzFeed published the infamous Steele dossier, CNN anchor Jake Tapper lit into BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith for the decision, calling it “irresponsible” and “uncollegial,” according to emails released Friday.
“I think your move makes the story less serious and credible[.] I think you damaged its impact,” Tapper wrote to Smith on Jan. 10, 2017, just after BuzzFeed published the dossierin full on its website.
The emails were released in response to a federal judge’s order to unseal documents from a lawsuit against BuzzFeed, which was sued in February 2017 by a Russian businessman who was accused in the dossier of being a Russian agent.
Lawyers for the Russian, Aleksej Gubarev, picked out the Tapper-Smith exchange in hopes of showing BuzzFeed failed to do its due diligence before publishing the dossier, which was funded by Democrats and compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
“Collegiality wise it was you stepping on my dick,” Tapper responded.A moment of honesty, or did he want it for himself? You be the judge.
“You could have waited til morning,” he said.
