Hugh Hewitt has some advice for the House GOP on upcoming Bruce Ohr appearance before Congress

Nothing could be crazier than Peter Strzok’s appearance before Congress, with his psychopathic facial expressions caught in a nightmarish animated GIF, Democrats applauding him, and Rep. Steve Cohen saying he’d like to recommend him for the Purple Heart.

Still, we expect fireworks from another upcoming appearance before Congress; this time it’s former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr.

Bruce Ohr, former Associate Deputy AG, will be in front of Congress on August 28th. His wife worked for Fusion GPS, the oppo research firm for Clinton.

In case you’d missed it or it wasn’t clear, Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for opposition firm Fusion GPS, the folks who hired Christopher Steele to come up with his infamous Trump dossier. Kind of cozy, don’t you think?

This is a date to put on the calender

Like Nunes said: whatever they accuse you of doing is what they’re actually doing.

#Speaker Jordan, please keep at it. We, the silent majority appreciate you more than you realize.

Salem radio host Hugh Hewitt had a suggestion for the House GOP that would keep them from faceplanting during such important testimony: hire a lawyer, preferably Blind Sheik prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, to ask the questions. (Just FYI: “Mr. Simpson” is Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson.)

What would really be useful is if all the @HouseGOP yielded their time to the chair and the chair hired a lawyer who could conduct a sane, thorough, revealing, respectful inquiry of Mr. Ohr, at the end of which we’d have a timeline of his and his wife’s and Mr. Simpson’s

interactions with Mr. Steele and with various senior members of Bureau and Department. This would require @HouseGOP to give up what they perceive are opportunities to shine but which in fact turn into faceplants. How about advocating for this approach?

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) August 11, 2018

Sounds good to us.

In fact, just hired @AndrewCMcCarthy as special counsel for the hearing and turn the proceedings over to him. I don’t think objecting/nterrupting Ds would greatly distract and definitely not upset the prosecutor of the Blind Sheik. He’s very familiar w/ DOJ/Bureau/the matter

— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) August 11, 2018

We’re totally on board with this idea, though we’d miss seeing Rep. Trey Gowdy going to work on Ohr.

Yes, definitely would result in a more productive questioning, BUT I WOULD MISS WATCHING REP. GOWDY. I would suggest an amendment that allows Mr. Gowdy to be the lawyer who conducts the inquiry.

That sounds good too — this is too important for the House GOP to screw up.

Good advice; rarely heeded.

Get this brilliant idea trending…THIS⬇️

this never happens, just a bunch of grandstanding reps who might get around to asking one question before their time is up, with no focus to the inquiry @Jim_Jordan

You meaning missing an opp to hear Kamala Harris wonder aimlessly? …I don’t think I could give that up.

They will make a circus out of it just like they did for the other guy.

— Diehard Southerner (@DiehardSouther1) August 11, 2018

Instead if the monkey trial joke of hearings. Good advice!!

— MissYouMike (@missyoumike) August 11, 2018

Love the idea. Only chair or designate from both sides question. No grandstanding. Focus is to get the facts/truth

— Debby.Johnston (@DebbyAJ) August 11, 2018

The only way that will happen is if you take away the television cameras.

— Kelly Johnston (@johnston_kelly) August 11, 2018

This is exactly what Senate Judiciary members–Dems and GOPers–should do at Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Skip the 10 minute preening before TV cameras and yield their time to their most knowledgeable colleagues –or better, staff counsel–for sustained inquiry on both sides.

It’s not gonna happen, is it?

Hugh, Don Quixote, Hewitt 🙂 #ToDreamTheImpossibleDream

WTF? This was DEFINITELY the most ‘creepy’ part of Peter Strzok’s testimony (the gif will haunt your dreams)
