‘Degenerate spoiled brat’: Jim Jordan shredded over reason for latest hearing

Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-VI) tore into Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for holding a hearing in defense of former President Donald Trump as he faces dozens of criminal charges.

At Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on government weaponization, Plaskett made it clear that Republicans were only concerned with protecting Trump.

“Why are we back this time?” she asked. “We’re here because former President Trump is on trial in New York. That’s why we’re here.”

“On Monday and Tuesday of this week, his former attorney Michael Cohen delivered devastating testimony implicating former President Trump in a hush money payment scheme,” she pointed out. “We all know that the former president exacts loyalty from all of his followers and especially GOP officials and those that work for him. Blind loyalty.”

Plaskett noted that many Republicans “hightailed it to New York City to show him that they are with him.”

“And Trump, in turn, demands that every Republican official serve him like the incorrigible, degenerate, spoiled brat that he is and use their positions to aid his criminal defense,” she said.

According to the lawmaker, right-wing media personalities like Steve Bannon and Maria Bartiromo had pushed Jordan to hold the hearing.

“We’re here at the beck and call of Trump fanatics and talking heads on cable and internet talk shows in the MAGA world who, like Bartiromo and Bannon, have goaded this committee to act,” she remarked.
