Sen. Mazie Hirono is catching third degree burns from the blistering attack launched by Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham.
The Senate Judiciary Committee convened to hear the testimony of Attorney General William Barr, but Graham is asserting that Hirono “slandered” Barr “from top to bottom.”
During the testimony Hirono launched such attacks as saying that Barr has thrown his name in with the likes of Kellyanne Conway and Rudy Giuliani as individuals who’ve “sacrificed their once decent reputation for the grifter and liar that sits in the Oval Office.”
“You know the difference, but you’ve chosen to be the president’s lawyer and side with him over the interests of the American people.”
Hirono continued, “You called a press conference to once again clear Donald Trump” and “used every advantage of your office to create the impression that the president was cleared of misconduct.”
This continued until Graham deliberately put a stop to it saying, “Listen, you’ve slandered this man.”
He added, “You slandered this man from top to bottom, so, if you want more of this, you’re not going to get it, if you want to ask questions, you can.”
