Coatless Gym Jordan is getting all set for the first hearing of his Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government on Thursday, but his potential list of witnesses to attest to the victimization of the poor beleaguered rabid right has left some critics with cramped facial muscles from too much eye-rolling and guffawing:
“Its first hearing isn’t until Thursday but already Chairman Jim Jordan‘s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government is being mocked after the list of witnesses was released.
NBC News’ Garrett Haake reports testifying before the committee on Thursday will be ex-Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and former FBI special agent Nicole Parker.”“
Well, that’s quite a line up.
Tulsi Gabbard, former Congress critter from Hawaii, who eight out of ten Americans, including those who watch Fox News, couldn’t identify in a line up, but who, I suppose, can falsely claim that rational people have been made biased against her for supporting Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad and propagating the false Russian story of Ukrainian-American bio-weapons lab.
Russian tool Ron Johnson who repeats so many Kremlin backed story lines that if his Russian writers stopped sending speeches to him would have nothing of substance to say;
Iowa barnyard philosopher Chuck Grassley, whose reports of hoot owl sightings and the doings of earth worms in his backyard have held the nation transfixed;
And Nicole Parker who left? her job in the FBI to become a Fox News talking head and frequent guest on Sean Hannity’s show.
Now that will be some compelling television:
“Johnson actively pushed the WI legislature & the VP to overturn the election. Tulsi used her perch in Congress to secretly meet with Assad & whitewash his war crimes, so in a sense, they are indeed experts on weaponizing gov’t. [sic],” mocked former Hillary Clinton foreign policy spokesperson Jesse Lehrich.
Jim Manley, a top aide to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, described the panel as “low energy.”
NBC News Justice reporter Ryan J. Reilly pre-deflated Parker’s possible contributions, citing her as saying: “’I was never asked to participate in anything that was political,’ Nicole Parker said in one of her Fox News hits (Hannity, specifically).”
Even CNN did not hide its skepticism, beginning its reporting with this line: “The GOP-led House select subcommittee on so-called weaponization of the federal government will draw upon a prominent ex-Democrat, two of their Republican Senate colleagues, and a former FBI agent in their first public hearing to discuss how they believe the government has been weaponized against conservatives, multiple sources familiar with the plans tell CNN.”
So, get on top of your trailers to adjust your 25 foot antennas and pull your tin foil hats down just a little harder, MAGA nation, Jim Jordan has rolled up his sleeves and has just the spectacle for ya’ll.
