Democrat Elijah Cummings came to Republican Mark Meadows’s defense in committee, Wednesday, after radical freshman Congresswoman Rshida Tlaib accused Meadows of racism. The moment was a rare example of bipartisan respect and statesmanship, as Meadows explained to Sean Hannity last night.

Hannity called the exchange between Cummings and Meadows, which took place during Wednesday’s contentious hearing, a “great moment” for civility between two men on opposite sides of the political spectrum.
“I totally agree, Sean,” Meadows said. “I don’t mind saying that not only is [Cummings] a friend, but he was a gentleman today in the way that he came to my defense.”
Hannity and Meadows then went on to discuss the fallout from Cohen’s dramatic testimony.
“The witch hunt, the Russian collusion narrative, it was thrown out there over and over again and what happened was there was nothing there,” Meadows said. “There were a lot of opportunities afforded to [Cohen] that shouldn’t have happened.”
