It’s painful to watch as Missouri GOP Senator Josh Hawley goes toe to toe with this progressive zealot, but so worth it as he takes her apart seam by seam.
Josh Hawley grilled Colleen Shogan, President Biden’s nominee to lead the National Archives and Records Administration, noting that she had written a paper he said disparaged every two-term Republican president since World War II.
Hawley’s questions came during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on Sept 21st. He referenced an article Shogan had written entitled, “Anti-Intellectualism in the Modern Presidency: Republican Populism.” In the 2007 article, published by the American Political Science Association, Shogan wrote of Republican presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, saying that their “leadership posturing place them on the explicitly anti-intellectual side of the spectrum.”
This is for the job as the National Archivist. Do we want a partisan in charge of our most precious possessions?
