Democrats showed up loaded for bear to grill Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
They thought they could fire off gotcha questions and turn a Congressional hearing into a circus.
But Sessions shut down one Democrat with four perfect words.
Democrat John Conyers of Michigan is the highest ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.
He tried to lay a trap for Sessions to catch the Attorney General in an embarrassing attack on Donald Trump.
Conyers quizzed Sessions about Trump’s tweets about Hillary Clinton’s scandals and tried to claim Trump was using twitter to order the Justice Department to investigate his political opponents.
Sessions revealed Conyers to be grandstander as opposed to someone asking a legitimate question when he responded to the Democrat’s rant by asking “is that a question?”
The Daily Caller reports:
“Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat from Michigan, used his time during a hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions to read out President Trump’s tweets…
… Conyers then asked, “In a functioning democracy, is it common for the leader of the country to order the criminal justice system to retaliate against his political opponents?”
“Is that a question?” Sessions asked with a slight smirk. “Is it proper, is that what you’re asking?”
Conyers repeated the question, and Sessions replied, “I would say that the Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents.”
Bill and Hillary Clinton are in hot water because of a lifetime of alleged wrongdoing.
Trump didn’t paint a target on their backs.
It was their shady dealings at the Clinton Foundation that has them in the crosshairs.
And it would set a terrible precedent if all it takes to receive lifetime immunity from criminal charges is losing an election.
