Debbie Wasserman Schultz mops the ground with Jonathan Turley throughout the choose committee listening to
Republicans on the special committee tried to sell Jonathan Turley as a Twitter expert, but Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) picked him up.

When it came time for their question and answer session, Wasserman asked Schultz Turley if he had ever worked for Twitter, and he said no. She asked if he had any ties to Twitter, and he said no. She asked him if he knew anything about the inner workings of Twitter. Turley answered no.
Wasserman Schultz then said that Turley’s answers were conjecture and opinion. Turley said he was going by what he read in the Twitter files. Wasserman Schultz again asked if he had any unique knowledge. Turley said no, but added that he offers legal analysis. Wasserman Schultz reclaimed her time, saying that legal analysis was another word for opinion.
By the end of the conversation, Turley had to admit that everything he offered was essentially his opinion. Another Republican star witness was dismantled.
The hearing itself was an insult to error.
The special counsel is nothing more than a laundering operation for right-wing conspiracy theories and talking points that Democrats on the committee dismantle with ease.
The special committee tasked with helping Trump get re-elected looks like a dud.
