Democrat Caught Watching Golf During Impeachment Hearing - WATCH
Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond busted watching tournament
Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond was caught watching the ongoing President’s Club golf tournament on his laptop during Tuesday night’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, according to reports.
The video was posted by GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest on Twitter:
“What on earth is Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond watching on his laptop during this impeachment markup?” Guest wrote.
“To me, it looks like Rep. Richmond is watching the President’s Cup golf tournament. Richmond’s actions are a DISGRACE.”
Guest then posted a photo that was zoomed in, showing what seemed like a segment of the day’s golfing action taking place on Richmond’s computer in the middle of the hearing.
Despite Conservative pro golfer Bob Estes seeing Guest’s tweet, he decided to give Richmond “a pass” since he was watching the President’s Cup.
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel remarked on Democrats’ purported “solemn and prayerful” attitude, so much so that “they’re watching golf at the hearing.”
“This partisan sham has been an absolute waste of the American people’s time,” wrote McDaniel.

On Friday, the House Judiciary Committee passed two articles of impeachment against Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
The vote is the fourth of its kind taken by the committee.
It will end the articles to the House floor for a vote that Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated will takes place next week.
Lawmakers voted on the articles following a debate that revealed a divide in Congress over the effort to impeach Trump for soliciting the Ukrainian leader in investigating Vice President Joe Biden.
