Rep. Wears Hillary Pin During Hearing on Clinton Emails

FBI Director James Comey testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee Monday regarding why some key witnesses in the Hillary Clinton email scandal were given some form of immunity. There was the usual partisan grilling from Republican lawmakers while Comey defended the agency’s investigation process.

That, however, is not the fun part of this story.

During the committee’s questioning, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) was caught on camera wearing a pin with the ‘H’ logo symbolizing Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Yes, a congresswoman tasked with questioning the FBI Director about his investigation into Clinton’s emails was wearing a pin for the Clinton campaign.

Now, it would obviously be ridiculous to say that the Republicans on the committee were being politically neutral in their questioning, but at the very least you don’t see them wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat while doing it.

Obviously, the Democrats in the committee are probably going to be Clinton supporters, and the Republicans on the committee Trump supporters (or at least not Clinton fans). It would probably just be a bit smarter, politically speaking, for Lee to maybe leave the pin in the office the next time she has to speak to Director Comey.
