    My immediate reaction to this is … what is he hiding? Why doesn’t he want to reply?

    But I guess he is just playing obstructional politics

      The Democrats on the committee kept asking the same questions during this hearing to get Acting AG Whitaker caught in a perjury trap. For those not aware, a perjury trap is where investigators or examining attorneys go over the same place repeatedly, waiting for a mis-statement or slip, then use that to claim that perjury (lying under oath) had been committed. This tactic isn’t permitted in a courtroom proceeding (rule of evidence 403), but for grandstanding politicians, no such rule applies. Throughout this Trump/Russia farce, it is important to note that all of the indictments that have come so far are irrelevant to the object of the investigation – many of them are the result of perjury traps. Whitaker played nice for a little while and then, when it became obvious that was all they were doing, he started smacking them hard. This is one of those clips.

        Well, let’s wait for the all 17 investigations to end before reaching any conclusions.

        Well said David… I too am getting real tired of the destructive and self serving behavior in our government and politics. It’s just tearing the country apart.
