‘You’re not going to stonewall me!’: Democrats press Lewandowski at fiery Hill hearing

“You’re not going to stonewall me and my questioning!” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., told Lewandowski. Cicilline later suggested that lawmakers hold the former Trump aide in contempt of Congress. As the section of the hearing featuring member questions drew to a close, Nadler made the same threat, telling Lewandowski that his behavior Tuesday was “unacceptable.”

Nadler himself said as the hearing began that the White House’s effort to stop or limit former staff from speaking fully before Congress amounted to a “shocking and dangerous assertion of executive privilege and absolute immunity.”

“The White House is advancing a new dangerous theory of crony privilege. It makes absolute immunity look good by comparison. Where are the limits?” he asked at the hearing. “This is a cover-up, plain and simple.”
