(TheConservativeNews.org) – A Democrat congresswoman,Linda Sanchez, sitting on the House’s Judiciary Committee’s Weaponization of the Federal Government subcommittee hearing Thursday saw her “gotcha” moment blow up in her face as the anti-Pelosi J6 tweet she sought to hang around the neck of an FBI whistleblower turned out not to be his.
Rep. Sanchez: Mr. Allen, have you ever used Twitter, yes or no?
Allen: I have utilized Twitter, yes.
Sanchez: OK, and is your account: ‘@MarcusA970506645?
Allen: That is absolutely not my account, ma’am.
Sanchez: OK, that’s not your account. Well, on December 5th, 2022, an account under the name Marcus Allen retweeted a tweet that said–
Allen: –That is not my account, ma’am–
Sanchez–But you haven’t let me finish the question, sir [another congressman jokes: “Might have been the football player?”]–you haven’t let me finish the question. And the time is mine. On December 5th, 2022 an account under the name of Marcus Allen retweeted a tweet that said, “Nancy Pelosi staged January 6th. Retweet if you agree.” Do you agree with that statement, yes or no?
Allen: That, that – no, ma’am, that’s not my account at all. I have no idea–
Rep. Sanchez: I’m asking whether you agree with that statement, yes or no?
Allen: Can you please rephrase the statement?[Subcommittee chair Jim Jordan tells Sanchez her time has expired.]
Sanchez: I just want him to answer. … Do you believe that Nancy, do you agree with the statement that this person tweeted that Nancy Pelosi staged January 6th, yes or no?
Sanchez: Thank you.
Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Ca., thought she had the goods on suspended FBI whistleblower Marcus Allen, an Iraq War vet and FBI “staff operations specialist” who testified that he faced severe retaliation for questioning the government’s narrative surrounding Jan. 6.
Sanchez read the contents of a “Marcus Allen” tweet in which the author blamed former House Speaker and Democrat Nancy Pelosi for “staging” Jan. 6.
The problem for the congresswoman, which she never acknowledged as she pressed on with her hostile questioning, is that the “Marcus Allen” tweet she quoted was from a different “Marcus Allen.”
Naturally, Twitter conservatives had a blast poking fun at Sanchez and her arrogance in pushing through with an “interrogation” of Allen based on a false premise. A sampling of those tweets follow, including one by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fl., who, in the spirit of her line of questioning, demanded an answer for a “Linda Sanchez” tweet:
