“The Democrats’ star witness has admitted to providing intentionally false and misleading testimony to Congress,” Jordan said. “He is also a witness in ongoing law-enforcement matters, including Special Counsel [Robert] Mueller’s probe.”
“When in the minority, Chairman Cummings and the Democrats have often cautioned against such actions,” he added. “Now that Chairman Cummings is in charge, the same standards don’t seem to apply. This makes clear that Chairman Cummings and the Democrats will do whatever it takes to attack this President.”
“For months we’ve heard Democrats [say], ‘Do not have witnesses come in here. You’re going to interfere with the Mueller investigation.’ And I find it just extremely ironic that the very first witness he would call in is someone that is central to … the Mueller investigation,” Meadows said.
“If he’s going to have real oversight, great,” Meadows added. "Let’s have [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein come in and sit right beside Michael Cohen. I have a few questions for him, as well."
It sounds like the objection is to the double standards being applied.
