Sen. Sasse Calls Out ‘Bullsh*t’ Grandstanding at Senate Hearing on Russia: You’re All ‘Trolling For Soundbites!’

Graham: ‘If you have to go somewhere else, go, we are going to do with this committee needs to do’


SASSE: "Mr. Chairman, before you go to senator Cruz, can we get a sense of how long we’re going to be here? Because some of us have other committees and with all due respect, I don’t think anybody in private ever disagrees with me when I say it is bullsh*t the way people grandstand for cameras in here. The reality is, if we did not have cameras in this room, the discussion would be different. The Senate doesn’t work. It doesn’t diffuse the partisan tensions that are leading the country toward dissolution. I am for transparency, I'm for reporters being everywhere, I'm for audio transcripts being everywhere. But 90% of our committees are about people trolling for soundbites. That is what actually happens. Some of us have other work to do. People can troll for soundbites whenever they want, but can we at least have a sense of when we're going to take our votes so people can come back?"
GRAHAM: "Yeah. Senator Sasse, I don’t think they are trolling for soundbites. I think they're genuinely upset with what I'm doing."
SASSE: "The criticism here is bipartisan."
