Here’s the exchange where Lewandowski cited executive privilege and refused to answer the question that set everyone off:

But that threat was not good enough for celebrity activist Alyssa Milano. She wants action, NOW:

Maybe the Russians are controlling House Dems, too?

Well, at least they see what wee see:
Captain this is as poor a performance as I've ever seen. Most of these people are lawyers for Christ's sake, and they can't even grill one stooge? We're going to get skewered if they don't get their shit together

Guys, Google what happened when the House, then controlled by the GOP, held Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. It’s the president’s AG that gets to decide what to do next.

Well, this is going to be a huge waste of time.
Not only is Lewandowski a hostile witness, but Trump just sent a letter to Congress claiming executive privilege over his testimony today, even though he never worked at the WH. #tuesdaymorning #tuesdaymotivation pic.twitter.com/vm5H0VelD8

What a waste of time.
Alyssa Milano to Ted Cruz: 'I don't know how to keep my children safe'; Also Alyssa Milano: 'We are a two gun household' ? https://t.co/P58BSbnojx
