Levin rips the Jan. 6 committee: 'We live in a post-constitutional America'

In his opening monologue on Sunday, Levin held a pocket copy of the United States Constitution, acknowledging, “This is supposed to be the overall law of the land that protects our individuality, our freedom and the civil society.” 

However, he warned that as citizens under the current regime, “in many ways we live in a post-constitutional America” and that “those who are waving the Constitution today on the January 6 committee have been major participants in its demise.”

Levin went on to illustrate the “kangaroo court” nature of the January 6 committee hearings.

“Let me ask you a question. Let’s say you are gonna go to a court of law. There is no judge. There is no jury. You don’t have a lawyer. You can’t call witnesses. You can’t provide exculpatory evidence, you have to watch. And watch,” Levin said. “Let’s say the jury is chosen by Nancy Pelosi, but don’t worry its bipartisan, we have 7 Democrats and 2 Republicans and there’s media in the back taking pictures, rolling cameras, taking notes, as ‘scribes’ for the prosecution-the prosecution being the jury… and then reporting, ‘oh we have new findings, new information has come out.’ It’s not a perfect parallel but good enough, that is pretty much what’s been going on with this January 6 committee.”
