Let’s leave aside the whole issue of Rep. Seth Moulton posing in Iraq with the military-issue rifle he says shouldn’t be legal on U.S. streets. What we really want to know is, does he actually know anything about due process?
As Twitchy noted, reporters were stunned by the unprecedented behavior in the House Wednesday night, relaying that people were actually screaming in the gallery as Speaker Paul Ryan tried to restore order.
The sit-in, which for a while became a sing-along, continued, and Moulton pointed out that Republicans who were so concerned about protecting citizens’ rights were demanding that people in the gallery be removed for being disruptive.
Rs now singling out citizens in the House gallery & demanding the Sgt at Arms remove them. Where's due process now? pic.twitter.com/bTaNzZDpyE

@sethmoulton Wait, what? They're demanding the removal of citizens from the gallery?

It doesn't appear @sethmoulton knows what "due process" means….

@sethmoulton You’re not very well versed in law are you? If they are arrested, due process begins with Miranda and continues from there.

@sethmoulton What are you talking about?!? Are they being arrested? Are their rights being revoked? Are you seriously this clueless?

@sethmoulton Curious. How does one get into congress without knowing what Due Process is and when it's applied?

@sethmoulton but I thought the point of the sit-in was to do away with due process?

@sethmoulton you think people being removed from a House gallery is the same as being put on a no-fly list?

@sethmoulton this is a parody account right?

@sethmoulton this comment says all anyone needs to know about your understanding of the constitution. Embarrassing.
