You know you scored a solid hit when a Democrat walks out of an ongoing Senate Hearing in a fit of pique.
Maisie Hirono had nothing left to say. Which is, itself, nothing short of miraculous.
She was offended by the proceedings and walked out.
The proceedings happened to center around a conversation about Antifa and the rioting we’ve seen in major cities.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is aiming to highlight the role Antifa and like-minded groups are playing in riots across the country, convening a Senate hearing Tuesday on the issue while alleging that radical left-wing groups are engaging in “organized terror attacks” designed to tear down government institutions.
“Across the country, we’re seeing horrific violence, we’re seeing our country torn apart. Violent anarchists and Marxists are exploiting protests to transform them into riots and direct assaults on the lives and safety of their fellow Americans,” Cruz told Fox News in an interview. –FoxNews
Ted Cruz took dead aim at the allegations that Trump somehow used ‘secret police’ or that he had a private police force acting has personal henchmen indiscriminately and unlawfully throwing innocent protesters into unmarked vehicles.
It only took a couple of questions to set the record straight.
.@TedCruz: "Mr. Cuccinelli, do you deploy 'secret police,'
does DHS send 'secret police' out into the world and is that what's happening in Portland?"@HomelandKen: "We have no troops, we have no secret police." pic.twitter.com/Q8Kpnvu1Wa

Secret Police, huh?
Do you mean those guys with the bright yellow letters across their chests?
Oh, and that criticism of the unmarked vehicles toppled like a felled tree when Cruz asked why authorities might prefer NOT to drive a squad car into a riot.
