Rep. Cedric Richmond, who had asked Republican colleagues how they “want to be remembered during this watershed moment in our nation’s history?” was caught watching golf during an impeachment hearing in the House Judiciary Committee.
Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Steve Guest posted video footage of Richmond watching the Presidents Cup golf tournament on a laptop via CNN. “What on earth is Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond watching on his laptop during this impeachment markup?” Guest tweeted.
“To me, it looks like Rep. Richmond is watching the President’s Cup golf tournament. Richmond’s actions are a DISGRACE,” he added.
“Democrats on Nadler’s Committee are so ‘solemn’ and ‘prayerful’ about impeachment that they’re watching golf at the hearing,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote on Twitter. “This partisan sham has been an absolute waste of the American people’s time.”
