I'm watching AAG Whittaker testifying before Congress. I have to say that he looks like a man out of his depth.
- He's being asked very simple yes-no questions about the facts of his own behavior and beliefs, and rather than just answering directly, he's given equivocal answers. (Even in response to Jim Jordan's questions.)
- During his exchange with Rep. Jordan, Jordan tried to lead him multiple times to a get on a GOP talking point line, yet it wasn't until the very end when Jordan, realizing Whittaker just didn't get the hints in the question, laid it out on his own. (GOP-ers subsequently took to delivering monologues more so than questioning Whittaker.)
- Whittaker had the gall to attempt to refrain from answering the committee chairman's question by telling the committee chairman that the chairman's time was up. (A brief guffaw ensued.)
- Whittaker's cherry-picked the questions about conversations he's had with the POTUS. Basically, he's been indicating what he's not discussed with Trump, but he's not stating what he has discussed with Trump.
