Justice Department special counsel John Durham was met by hostile Democrats when he testified in front of Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee, but he didn’t take it lying down.
When Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), accused Durham during a cross-examination of damaging his own reputation by allegedly helping former President Donald Trump, Durham responded, “My concern about my reputation is with the people who I respect and my family and my Lord.”
“And I’m perfectly comfortable with my reputation with them, sir,” he added.
Sara Gonzales of "The News & Why It Matters" believes that Cohen “was mad that Durham didn’t politicize this as everyone else has.”
She adds that if you don’t like Trump, you’re supposed to use your dislike for him to influence your decisions, because she doesn’t know “what siding with him would have to do with an unbiased, objective, fact-finding report.”
Frequent guest Jaco Booyens believes they do this because they “don’t let any disaster go to waste. Don’t let any opportunity for them go to waste. And they saw this as an opportunity to dig at Trump.”
“This is a moment for them,” Booyens adds.
Head writer and researcher for Glenn Beck Jason Buttrill is shocked at just how easily it comes for everyone to lie about Donald Trump, especially considering the work they do.
“In media you can’t fart in the wrong direction of someone and claim that it was theirs without getting hit with a libel case,” he says.
“We’ve just seen,” he continues, “like seven years straight, something like that, of them blatantly lying about Donald Trump.”
“The Durham report proved that everything in the Russia investigation, the Russia hoax, all that crap, was exactly that — crap. It was all false, based on lies,” he adds.
