Oh that was just the BEGINNING of one of Trey Gowdy’s best efforts yet in delivering oratory justice to yet another Obama administration scoundrel.
YOU ARE WELCOME AMERICA! (from SC’s 4th Congressional District)!
“Professor Tiefer, would you seat a juror who referred to your client as an obscene body part?” Gowdy asked, clearly referring to emails that show ex-IRS official Lois Lerner referring to conservatives as “assholes” and “crazies.”
Professor Tiefer didn’t say a word for about five seconds before he muttered, “I’m sorry?”
“Well, then you would starve to death as a lawyer if you can’t answer that question, professor,” Gowdy said. “You would seriously consider seating a juror in a trial, a criminal trial, where your client was accused of a crime, if that juror had referred to your client as an obscene body part, you would struggle with whether or not to strike that juror?
Gowdy then asked the professor to imagine that he was a prosecutor and one of the jurors referred to the police as “terrorists” who might bring the country down. When asked if he would seat that juror, Tiefer said he didn’t see the connection between Gowdy’s line of questioning and the investigation into the IRS scandal.
“I’ll give you the connection!” Gowdy proclaimed. “Lois Lerner just referred to conservatives as an obscene body part and she said we were ‘crazies’ and likened us to terrorists!”
Okay. Here it is.
