The confirmation hearings for most of Joe Biden’s nominees haven’t been going well for them, and that theme continued earlier today as Senator Josh Hawley appeared to catch one lying under oath.
Hawley quoted Colleen Joy Shogan, who is the nominee to serve as archivist of the United States, as saying that her personal Twitter account was composed of posts about mystery novels, events at the White House historical association, Pittsburgh sports teams, travels, and her dog - which she agreed was an “accurate” characterization.
Hawley then quoted one tweet from her bemoaning the dropping of mask mandates for children under five - which she nonsensically tried to claim didn’t contradict her past characterization of her feed because they were in her “personal capacity.”
When further confronted on her politically charged posts, she repeated the same line numerous times, and wouldn’t directly answer questions from Hawley.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee previously voted on Shogan’s confirmation last September, but they deadlocked 7-7.Matt Palumbo is the author of Fact-Checking the Fact-Checkers: How the Left Hijacked and Weaponized the Fact-Checking Industry and The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros
