“…Now I know he went to Yale, I think, or Harvard, one of those, one of those fancy ones…”
Claire McCaskill @clairecmc
A good reporter really ought to follow up and get the name of ANY case where he stood in a criminal courtroom in front of a jury as a prosecutor. Has he even ever seen a jury in a criminal trial? Spoken to one? Done a voir dire? Made an opening statement? Cross x a witness? Ever?
Bryan Lowry @BryanLowry3
.@HawleyMO’s explanation of his no vote will likely elicit a response from @clairecmc: “It’s too broad. As a former prosecutor, my view is it’s dangerous to simply give the federal government open-ended authority to define a whole new class of federal hate crime incidents.”
A few of the comments:
I found some interesting information on Hawley. Seems he said he argued a Hobby Lobby case, which is not the job of prosecutors, before the Supreme Court, and would have done so in violation of the Supreme Court bar. Admitted to the bar a year after the case was over.
As a retired prosecutor, I take issue with Hawley and his claims. He is an obstructionist with 0 trial experience. How laughable that he argues he represents the middle class!
I did some research and I couldn’t find a case that he prosecuted.
He only appears on Fox
“Stood”? That’s not nice, Claire. 😉
Mock trial at Yale Law, maybe.
One of those fancy ones.
Unfortunately no good reporters. Just saw him on the local news spewing his BS about need for local government offices to open. No one questions his residency. No one questions his sedition. No one questions his votes. There are no investigative reporters left.
Please hammer this point home every chance you get. It’s Hawley’s BIG LIE. (They all have at least one.)
Just another GQP poser… Ugh.
There you go.
