A Democrat made a complete fool of herself at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee government weaponisation hearing in the House by attempting to pin some random person’s retweet on an FBI whistleblower as evidence that he supported a January 6th insurgency.
Sporting sprigs of purple dyed hair and waving around air quotes, shrieky Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez of California attempted to go all Perry Mason by uncovering former FBI agent Marcus Allen as a dangerous MAGA extremist sympathiser.
The problem was that her entire case rested on a retweet claiming ‘Nancy Pelosi staged January 6. Retweet if you agree,’ by someone with the same name, that isn’t the same Marcus Allen.
Sanchez took about 4 minutes to set up her devastating take down of Allen as a legitimate witness, asking him several poorly worded questions about whether he believes FBI agents should be impartial and apolitical.
Sanchez intended to get Allen to agree that obviously this should be the case and then hit him with the revelation that he retweeted a MAGA crackpot QAnon statement, or something.
When it came to the big unveil, Sanchez asked “Is your account @MarcusA97050645?” to which the former agent replied “That is absolutely not my account.”
Should’ve checked if there is more than one Marcus Allen… in the world.
Sanchez ridiculously carried on anyway, demanding that Allen answer for the tweet, as someone in the background quipped that the owner of the random Marcus Allen account “could be the football player.”
Allen hilariously repeatedly told Sanchez that the Twitter account in question is not his.
Two can play at this game…
Earlier, Allen had testified to the subcommittee that he was punished for forwarding information to his superiors that “questioned the official narrative of the events of January 6.”
“Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States, the FBI suspended my security clearance, accusing me of actually being disloyal to my country,” Allen said.
He added, “This outrageous and insulting accusation is based on unsubstantiated accusations that I hold ‘conspiratorial views’ regarding the events of January 6, 2021 and that I allegedly sympathize with criminal conduct. I do not. I was not in Washington DC on January 6, played no part in the events of January 6, and I condemn all criminal activity that occurred.”
