In a simple hearing with former Trump campaign manager Cory Lewandoski the Democrats are proving their incompetence and their awful sense of politics.
Cory Lewandoski shut down Jerry Nadler from the start causing him to look lost and confused. In his opening statement, Cory took a few shots at Hillary Clinton saying that he has testified countless times and handed over thousands of emails and correspondence.
“I also received hundreds of thousands of emails, some days with as many as a thousand emails,” he said. “And unlike Hillary Clinton, I don’t think I ever deleted any of those.”
“To the best of my recollection, I don’t recall ever having any conversations with foreign entities — let alone any who were offering help to manipulate the outcome of the election.” He added.
“As I have said publicly many times, anyone who attempted to illegally impact the outcome of an election should spend the rest of their life in jail.”
Here is the transcript from CNN:

Nadler: Was it your idea not to answer these questions on the basis of executive privilege, yes or no?
Lewandowski: Congressman, I can only go by the letter that was provided. It was not my idea to provide this letter.
President Trump also pointed out the “beautiful opening statement by Corey Lewandowski” by posting a tweet, while thanking his former campaign manager.
