This doesn’t require much preamble. Rep. Will Hurd (TX-23) sat and listened to the spew coming from Rep. Connolly (VA-JERK) and then came back with a fiery response that made very Democrat in there playing politics look like piles of crap. Or rather, MORE like crap than they already did.
Mr. Chairman, I’m offended. I’m offended by my friends on the other side of the political aisle saying this is political theater. This is not political theater. For me, this is serious. I spent nine and a half years as an undercover officer in the CIA. I was the guy in the back alleys collecting intelligence, passing it to lawmakers. I’ve seen my friends killed, I’ve seen assets put themselves in harm’s way, and this is about protecting information. The most sensitive information the American government has, and I wish my colleagues would take this a little bit more seriously.
That is a big fat KABOOM right there. Rep. Gerry Connolly’s clownish antics look all the more so followed by this. Democrats are really showing their colors today, and those colors are not red, white, and blue. They’re like, dark green and puce (for puke) or maybe fuschia (for embarrassment.)
