Republican Conspiracy Charts

The GOP has gone full Glenn Beck:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has a reputation as one of the more colorful members of Congress. But he outdid himself Tuesday afternoon, putting together an essentially incoherent chart connecting various conspiracy theories about the Obama administration and holding it up during a congressional hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The intent of the chart is to say that the Justice Department discredited itself during the Obama years and is somehow connected to the Uranium One scandal dominating conservative media. Special counsel Robert Mueller was one of President Obama’s two FBI directors (Jim Comey, later fired by President Trump, was the other). It allegedly illustrates connections between the DOJ under Obama and various alleged scandals (e.g., “Benghazi.”)

Not to be outdone, a caffeine deprived Sean Hannity decides to have a go at it himself:

Hillary seems to have to go through a lot of channels to have a chat with her husband.
