The questioning of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in Friday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing was off-the-rails improper.

Whitaker gave as good as he got, but the Democrats largely achieved their goal of setting up indictments for those around President Trump and ultimately impeachment of the President, which they will likely succeed at, knowing they will never get a conviction in the Senate, but able to distract enough energy and momentum from the Trump agenda to impair it to some degree.

It is my opinion that Whitaker and all Republicans should refuse to participate in future House Judiciary Committee hearings public lynchings. They are nothing more than Democrat shooting galleries, held only to paint Whitaker, the GOP, and President Trump as corrupt and conspiratorial. There is nothing to gain and everything to lose by voluntarily participating in the Democrat hearings or even complying with subpoenas. Whitaker and all Republicans should refuse to appear, as did Eric Holder who simply accepted his meaningless Contempt of Congress charge.
