President Donald Trump is watching former campaign aide Corey Lewandowski testify before the House’s first impeachment hearings.
Lewandowski wasn’t answering questions that aren’t already answered in the Mueller report on election interference. Democrats were frustrated and the Judiciary Committee hearing immediately devolved into chaos.
Trump tweeted from Air Force One: “Such a beautiful Opening Statement by Corey Lewandowski! Thank you Corey!”

But Democrats complained that Lewandowski was giving no answers and instead filibustering. Ranking Republican Doug Collins noted that filibustering, or unlimited talk, is the province of the Senate, not the House.
The White House sent Nadler a letter late Monday saying that Lewandowski was not allowed to discuss his conversations with President Donald Trump beyond what is already public in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Nadler disputes that.
