Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) took the time out of a House Judiciary Committee hearing to repeat the president's talking points.

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) used his time during a House Judiciary Oversight Hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday to read out some of President Trump’s tweets about “Crooked” Hillary Clinton and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA).

Conyers read out the following tweets, while a large television screen displayed them in the hearing room on Capitol Hill:

“I believe he is referring Senator Elizabeth Warren in that last one,” Conyers said, referencing the tweet about “Pocahontas.”

The representative then implied that the nickname was racist. “When Richard Nixon spoke about us that way, at least he had the courtesy to do it behind closed doors,” he added.

Conyers then asked Sessions if these tweets constituted improper influence of the Justice Department from the president.
