Lauren Windsor is a Democrat activist who founded “The Undercurrent,” which she claims is a “grassroots political web show.”
In the video, Windsor pretends she is a conservative while speaking with Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), who is in a competitive race for the Arizona 6th Congressional District.
“Are y’all gonna be able to get Kevin McCarthy out of leadership? We need somebody like Jim Jordan,” Windsor baited Schweikert in the video.
Windsor was trying to bait Schweikert into a made-up leftist extremist position and it was that question that probably cued him that he was talking with a leftists.
In response, the Republican Congressman said that Jordan backs McCarthy and even added that the Ohio Congressman would be better suited as the House Committee on Oversight and Reform chair.
“Do you know what a speaker actually does today? No, seriously, this is big-boy politics. They raise money. All they do is travel around the country and raise money,” Schweikert said. “Kevin McCarthy, if he becomes speaker, will spend 240 days a year traveling the country raising money. Jim Jordan, when he chairs the Oversight Committee, will spend 240 days knifing the Biden administration. The world has changed. It’s not [former House Speaker] Tip O’Neill anymore. And so you don’t put your warriors into the speaker job. You put your warriors in the committee chairs.”
Windsor then tried to bait the Congressman by using a 1/6 talking point asking if they would pardon those who were found guilty and if the GOP would defund the FBI.
Schweikert said there aren’t plans to defund the FBI, but the GOP plans to break them up.
“You don’t want to defund them. You want to break them up. It’s different. You want to be able to ship out anyone that’s political, it’s because you’re not going to be able to defund them,” Schweikert answers. “You defund the line items, you strip where they spend their money.”
The GOP Congressman also had no problem telling Windsor that if they took the House, the GOP would attempt to impeach FBI Director Christopher Wray, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Leftists then used their social media machine in hopes the video would go viral, and it did, but for all the wrong reasons.
Scott Dworkin, co-founder of the Democrat Commission, posted the video to scare other Dems wanting the video to go viral to stop Schweikert.
“GOP Rep. Dave Schweikert was caught on undercover video talking about breaking up the FBI and impeaching members of the Biden Administration if GOP wins House. Let’s make this viral,” he wrote on social media.
But when conservatives like Dan Bongino saw the video, they applauded Schwikert, and it began to circulate.
