Senator Ron Johnson Confronts Nominee
After she alleged Johnson was advocating “white supremacy,” Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson blasted Joe Biden’s choice for U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism of engaging in “malicious poison.”
The Senator addressed Deborah Lipstadt, Biden’s candidate for US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, during a Senate hearing this week. Lipstadt’s comments from March 2021 came back to haunt her.
Last March, Lipstadt shared an article in which Johnson was quoted as saying he was not concerned about January 6 protestors, but he would be if they had been Black Lives Matter or Antifa groups. Lipstadt accused Johnson of being a white nationalist.
Johnson Gets His Say
Johnson had a chance to defend himself during the Senate hearing.
“You don’t know me. You don’t know a lot of the people you have accused online in front of millions of people,” Johnson told Lipstadt. “You have engaged in the malicious poison. You’ve accused people you don’t know of very vile things.”
Johnson went on to tell the nominee that he forgave her but would not vote for her confirmation.
