Ron Johnson Shuts Down Warren Jab on Twitter

The Wisconsin Senator was having none of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren's false attacks.

On Wednesday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to Twitter to falsely accuse Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) of removing chairs from a room in which Warren met with former borrowers from the banks of Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin.

“3 hours before the Mnuchin victims’ forum was scheduled to start, @SenRonJohnson finally agreed that we could use his empty hearing room,” Warren wrote. “But @SenRonJohnson ordered dais chairs removed from his empty room so Senators talking to victims couldn’t sit in their usual spot. Really.”

Johnson was having none of it, however, and fired right back with photographic evidence of the chairs being set up in order to accommodate Warren’s meeting.

“The chairs were moved to the table at which we were told a meeting was to take place. Hope it was a fruitful meeting, @SenWarren,” Johnson tweeted.

To date, Warren has not apologized to her colleague for falsely accusing him of playing petty games with committee room chairs.
