Watch: Dem Lawmaker Bashes Republican Congressman Who Tried To Stop Her From Asking Obstruction Questions
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) was quickly shut down by Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) on Tuesday after he tried to stop her from asking questions about obstruction to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
“Point of order, Mr. Chairman,” Collins interrupted her opening statement.
“The gentleman will state his point of order,” Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said.
“I would just ask, is the gentle lady accusing the president of a crime?” Collins asked.
“I can,” Mucarsel-Powell quipped.
“She can reword, I’ll be happy to withdraw,” said Collins.
“I’m not accusing anyone of anything. Can I continue?” she shot back.
“Not if you are continuing with the question saying that it’s a crime,” Collins said.
“Mr. Collins, this is not a Reality TV show. This is a serious Judiciary Committee hearing,” she schooled him.
“It’s a serious question,” Collins claimed.
“We are trying to investigate misconduct by the president. May I continue, Mr. Chairman?” she asked.
