THIS Is How to Grill A Planned Parenthood Exec On Their Lies

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) got into a heated debate with Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards during a Congressional hearing earlier this week.

Jordan wanted to know why Richards, just a few days after watching one of the Planned Parenthood videos which showed high-ranking officials bartering over baby parts, issued an apology.

Jordan repeatedly asked “Why did you apologize?”

Richards consistently dodged the question, only at one point saying she found it “inappropriate to have a clinical discussion in a nonconfidential, nonclinical setting,” referring to the videos showing one Planned Parenthood doctor discussing procedures for preserving organs over lunch. “You can’t have it both ways,” Jordan shouted.  “You can’t say I’m apologizing for statements in one video and then not tell us what those statements were.”

In one particularly heated interaction, Jordan insisted, “You can’t have it both ways. You can’t say I’m apologizing for statements in one video and then not tell us what those statements were.

Richards responded, “I don’t believe that Dr. Nucatola…” (A Planned Parenthood doctor who said, “I’d say a lot of people want liver” in one video released by the Center for Medical Progress.)

Jordan retorted, “Or you can do this. You can say, ‘You know what, what I said in the video I produced wasn’t true. I really wasn’t apologizing for any statement.’ You can tell us that on the record if you like. But it can’t be both positions. It has to be one. And I want to know which one is it. And frankly, the American people want to know which one is it.”

Richards would eventually claim that the two would simply have to “agree to disagree,” but Jordan wasn’t having that either.

Comment: Does Cecile Richards deserve the grilling she got from Jordan, or was the Congressman out of line?
