Editor’s Note: Trey Gowdy is a straight up BAMF! He’s taking no prisoners and getting his job done.
Add this to Congressman Trey Gowdy’s highlight reel.
At Wednesday’s House hearing regarding the Obama IRS targeting scandal, Rep. Trey Gowdy put a Democrat Party-invited University of Baltimore law professor through the wringer in classic Gowdy form.
The South Carolina congressman’s line of questioning was geared toward making the case that the Obama-Holder Department of Justice has been compromised and cannot be trusted to investigate the Obama IRS scandal in which the tyrannical agency targeted Obama’s political opponents, specifically the pro-Constitution, pro-freedom Tea Party movement.
Referring to Lois Lerner’s latest discovered emails in which she referred to conservative radio programs and their listeners as “terrorists” and “a**holes,” Gowdy asked Professor Charles Tiefer, “Professor Tiefer, would you seat a juror who referred to your client as an obscene body part?”
A shell-shocked and seemingly confused Tiefer waited a few seconds, then unable to properly answer, asked, “I’m sorry?”
“I really have trouble giving you an answer…” he mumbled before Gowdy jumped in to help.
“Well then, you would starve to death as a lawyer if you can’t answer that question, professor,” Rep. Gowdy interjected. “I’ll give you some free litigation advice. You’ll want to use one of your strikes on that juror,” Gowdy advised.
Gowdy continued down this road asking Tiefer if he was a prosecutor in a case where one of the potential jurors had called police “terrorists” who want to bring the country down, as Lois Lerner did against people who believe in the U.S. Constitution, if that juror would make the cut.
“Would you seat that juror in a criminal prosecution if you were the prosecutor?” Rep. Gowdy asked.
“I wish I saw the connection here, but I, a…” Tiefer muttered in a nasally tone before Gowdy jumped in.
“I’ll give you the connection!” Gowdy announced. “Lois Lerner just referred to conservatives as an obscene body part and she said we were ‘crazies’ and likened us to terrorists!” Gowdy exclaimed.
