White House press secretary Sarah Sanders ridiculed House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler on Thursday for proposing that House staff attorneys question Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday.
“If he and his committee aren’t capable of actually asking the attorney general questions themselves and need to staff that out, it seems like a pretty pathetic moment for the chairman of that committee,” Sanders told reporters at the White House on Thursday.
”Look, we lost confidence in Jerry Nadler a long time ago, but it is surprising to find out that he actually lost confidence in himself and his capability to do his job,” Sanders added.
She suggested that Nadler resign.
“If he can’t, and he’s not capable of asking the attorney general questions, maybe he should step down and resign and allow somebody else to do it,” Sanders said.
