Nadler threatens to hold Lewandowski in contempt

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler threatened to hold President Trump's ex-campaign chief Corey Lewandowski in contempt after his tight-lipped testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

Lewandowski, who is considering running for a U.S. Senate seat from New Hampshire, tangled with Democratic members of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee and told the panel he would refuse to answer any questions about his conversations with Trump.

The president's fellow Republicans unsuccessfully sought to have the hearing adjourned shortly after it began.

Lewandowski was the first impeachment witness to appear before the committee since former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified in July about his inquiry that detailed Russian 2016 election interference and Trump's actions to impede the investigation.

America waited with bated breath for two years to hear whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2020 election. The leader of the investigation was former special counsel Robert Mueller, who testified before Congress and has made few public statements since then. But according to Business Insider, Mueller on Tuesday issued a statement refuting claims made by his former right-hand-man, Andrew Weissman.
