On Wednesday, a shouting match broke out at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on election security when Republican Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Democratic ranking member Gary Peters (D-MI) accused each other of lying about the other. In the end, the Democrat was the one who lied.
Johnson directly pointed out that Peters and other Democrat senators falsely accused him of spreading misinformation about Russian interference in the 2016 election and about Hunter Biden.
“I just have to talk about Russian disinformation because the people peddling it are not on my side of the aisle. Senior Democrat leaders including ranking member Peters were involved in the process of creating a false intelligence product,” Johnson said, where he was clearly talking about the Steele Dossier, which FBI officials believed was compromised by Russian Intelligence Service disinformation.
In fact, we recently reported that handwritten notes from John Brennan have been declassified that show the intelligence folks in the Obama administration knew from the very beginning that the Russian collusion nonsense against Donald Trump was started by Hillary Clinton in an effort to get the media to focus off of the illegal email server that she used while serving as Obama’s Secretary of State.
Johnson accused Democrats of leaking the false information from the dossier to the press and then having the gall to accuse Republicans of spreading Russian disinformation when Republicans pointed out what the Democrats did. You would think only a bunch of sociopaths would behave like that. And it could be that on that side of the aisle they are sociopaths who participated in such deception and not have a care in the world about getting caught.
After reports confirmed there is an ongoing Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, Johnson blasted Democrats and members of the intelligence community for claiming publicly that his committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden’s nefarious foreign business dealings played right into Russian hands.
Is now appears that everything the Democrats cannot explain, because of either their own malfeasance or misfeasance, they blame on Russian disinformation. And the lemmings who support them fall in line.
“It’s just galling and I just have to point out that the purveyors of Russian disinformation — Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC, the Steele dossier, the ranking member Peters accusing Senator Grassley and I of disseminating Russian disinformation — that’s where the disinformation is coming from,” Johnson said.
“I can’t sit by and listen to this and say that this is not disinformation, this hearing today. This is getting information. We have to take a look at to restore confidence in our election integrity,” he continued.
Of course, Peters denied that he’d put out any misinformation. It is maddening when someone dismisses something that is serious and relevant with a cliché.
“You say I’m putting out information. I had nothing to do with this report,” he said.
Johnson then slammed the ranking member:
“You lied repeatedly! You lied repeatedly in the press that I was spreading Russian disinformation, and that was an outright lie and I told you to stop lying and you continued to do it!” Johnson shot back at Peters very loudly.
There comes a time when proper decorum has to be put aside. When the opposition party members continually lie is one of those times.
“Mr. Chairman, this is not about airing your grievances. I don’t know what rabbit hole you’re running down right now,” Peters responded.
“You can’t make these false allegations,” Peters ranted while Johnson slammed his gavel to move forward by allowing Senator Rand Paul his time to speak.
“This is terrible what you’re doing to this committee,” Peters accused. Actually, what Peters and his sociopaths in the Democratic Party are doing is what’s terrible. They are all in on the conspiracy to cover up the wrongdoing of the Obama administration’s phony Russian collusion nonsense, and now using the specter of Russian disinformation to dismiss anything that shines a light on the massive election fraud that occurred during the 2020 election.
“It is what you have done to this committee, falsely accusing the chairman of spreading disinformation,” Johnson hit back. “Nothing could have been further from the truth, and you’re spouting it again.”
“This is outrageous,” Peters mumbled into his mask.
Folks, Senator Peters is a sociopath, because only a sociopath can be told by the Chairman of the committee to stop repeating what he knows are outright lies, and then Peters goes on to completely dismiss the allegations against him and place blame for the lack of decorum during the hearing on the Chairman. There has to be something wrong going on inside this man’s head.
According to the New York Post, the argument was about a letter Democrats sent to the utterly worthless deep state FBI Director Christopher Wray back in July making the claim that members of Congress were targeted by foreign entities to change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Democrats have continually lied by accusing Johnson’s Hunter Biden investigation of spreading Russian disinformation. Johnson’s responses during the hearing show just how fed up he is with the accusations. Claiming Russian disinformation today is about as debunked as “the dog ate my homework.”
