On Thursday morning, Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, more commonly known as Diamond and Silk, sat in front of the House Judiciary Committee to discuss censorship they have faced on social media.
While they were there to discuss social media censorship, the Democrats on the committee were upset that they weren’t talking about protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller from being fired by President Donald Trump.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-NY) began her testimony by making it known that the Senate Judiciary Committee just advanced legislation to protect Mueller.
“I do want to take note that the Senate has just introduced legislation to protect Mueller,” Jackson Lee stated right before making it known that she felt that they should be talking about that, instead of Diamond and Silk.
Jackson Lee also said that “You are in a House committee hearing” to condescend Diamond and Silk, who were treated with prime condescension throughout their testimony by the Democrats.
The bill protecting Mueller is sponsored by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chris Coons (D-DE), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Cory Booker (D-NJ). It was filed based on rumors that President Donald Trump is planning on firing Robert Mueller.
Whether the House Judiciary Committee wants to talk about protecting Robert Mueller or not is a discussion they can have, but it is extremely disrespectful to do it while Diamond and Silk are making their struggles with social media censorship known.
