Remember the name Doug Collins of Georgia. He just gave a rip roaring opening statement in front of the Judiciary Committee today.
The guy is a tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy who called out the bloviating Democrats.
Check out his opening statement below and the video lower down in this article where he defends Whitaker only to have Democrat Eric Swalwell give a snarky response. The Democrats came out of todays hearing looking like petty and spiteful grandstanders
Republican Doug Collins was a highlight:
“This hearing is pointless. If this is the way we’re going to go, then we’ll have plenty of stunts, we’re going to have plenty of theatrics. Bring your popcorn.”
“This is nothing more than character assassination and we’re going to also decide if we can just do something and get at the President while we have the chance.”-Ranking Member Doug Collins on Judiciary Cmte hearing with Whitaker today.

Rep. Doug Collins was pushing back hard on the Democrats as you’ll see in the video below. The ridiculous thing is that Whitaker is gone in two weeks when Barr comes in to be Attorney General for President Trump. This was all a sick show for the cameras just as Collins indicated.
The first video is of Rep. Collins who is fantastic. He comes right back at Swalwell after Swalwell gets snarky with him. The video below this is the one where Whitaker says he’s “not a puppet”.

The entire hearing was a ridiculous practice in just trying to make someone look bad. In this case, it was Whitaker but he slapped right back at the rude Democrats. He’s a fighter!
