Our spunky LN Writers offer up funny, outrageous and crazy tidbits from around the Web.  So many Gems, so little time…

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) had yet another epic smackdown Monday while talking to Fox News’ Bill Hemmer about the big Trump wiretapping story.  Daily Caller had the full story.  Pointing out that Congress doesn’t have the luxury of referring to “anonymous sources,” Gowdy told the host that Congress was “better equipped to do investigations than journalists are.”

“So with all due respect,” Rep. Gowdy went on, “to the reporters, I can’t cross-examine anonymous sources. You can’t even directly examine them. It’s a lot easier to write a news piece than it is to conduct an investigation.” No word on the cleanup of heads exploding across the establishment media.

Speaking of explosions and implosions and whatnot, Twitchy brings us the leftist reaction to the Supreme Court sending a case on transgender bathrooms back to the lower court. As you can imagine, there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth on Twitter. Most of the tweets cannot be reprinted here due to extreme profanity or threats (which naturally Twitter will do nothing about), but one accused the Supreme Court of having “blood on its hands.”

The left should know all about having blood on its hands.  Monday, Planned Parenthood doubled down yet again on its grisly practice of abortion.  The White House offered for Planned Parenthood to keep their federal funding, as long as they stop aborting babies. Since Planned Parenthood claims that abortions only make up 3% of its services, that should be no problem, right? The only problem is — and we understand if you need to put your coffee down a moment due to shock — Planned Parenthood isn’t exactly being forthcoming about its numbers.  Upon seeing PP’s claim that they don’t use federal funding for abortions, Twitter users applied the Logic Bat to the pinata that is leftist thought; unfortunately, they were not rewarded with candy.

And finally, former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest — whose last name, in the light of his shilling for former President Obama, has long been seen as a cruel joke on the American people — found himself in the hot seat again Sunday night. On ABC’s The Week, Martha Raddatz asked Mr. Earnest point-blank to “categorically deny” that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Towers.

First Earnest dodged the question, but since Ms. Raddatz repeated it, Earnest was forced into saying what he thought constituted an honest answer:

Here’s the simple answer to that question, Martha,” Earnest finally answered. “I don’t know, and it’s not because I’m no longer in government.”

“The fact is, even when I was in government, I was not in a position of being regularly briefed on an FBI criminal or counterintelligence investigation.”

Simple does not mean honest.  Perhaps that’s why so many don’t believe him.

Tune in tomorrow for more gems from the web!
