Former President Trump campaign chairman Corey Lewandowski’s best line of Tuesday’s House Judiciary Hearing came when he was questioned by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Florida.

“But those rules don’t apply to you,” Gaetz said to Lewandowski. “Mr. Lewandowski do you have a thought as to why we continue to engage in a charade that is overwhelmingly opposed by the American people and fundamentally misunderstood by my Democratic colleagues?”
