Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) had a meltdown as she long-form ranted in a strange attempt to question Attorney General William Barr on Wednesday.

After calling Barr a liar and claiming he misled the public by releasing his summary of the Mueller report, Hirono went on to tell Barr that she voted against his confirmation during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

“You did exactly what I thought you’d do, that’s why I voted against your confirmation,” she said as part of a long tirade that included a call for the DOJ to investigate Barr’s handling of the Mueller report.

After minutes of meltdown, Mazie finally got to her question, “We know more about your deep involvement in trying to cover up for Donald Trump. Being Attorney General of the United States is a sacred trust. 

You have betrayed that trust. America deserves better. You should resign. I have some questions for you. Is the White House exerting any influence on your decision, whether to allow special counsel Mueller to testify in Congress and when?”

Barr simply responded, “No.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) criticized Hirono’s histrionics. 

"You have slandered this man from top to bottom. If you want more of this you're not going to get it," Graham told Hirono.
