Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee shames Matt Whitaker during the House judiciary hearing: “We are not joking here and your humor is not acceptable.”
Lee hammered Whitaker because he refused to answer the questions with a simple “yes” or “no” response. He tried to filibuster by giving long responses that amount to nothing.
“Mr. Attorney General, we are not joking here and your humor is not acceptable,” Lee said during the exchange. “You are here because we have a constitutional duty to ask questions and the Congress has a right to establish government rules.”
