Townhall senior writer Julio Rosas blasted Congressman Daniel Goldman after the latter went on a tirade denigrating the importance of his testimony.
The incident took place during Tuesday’s House Homeland Security Committee hearing on left-wing violence.
Goldman repeatedly dismissed Rosas’ testimony and significance as a witness while suggesting the only true authority on the matter is the director of the FBI.
“As if Antifa, which Mr. Rosas, apparently the expert now in organized terrorist activity, has overruled the FBI director who says… there’s a headline that says ‘Antifa is an ideology, not an organization,’” Goldman said.
“No, no, no, let’s not listen to the FBI director,” he continued talking down to Rosas. “Let’s listen to — sorry, what’s your title? — senior writer at Townhall, who is going to tell us that the FBI director is wrong.”
Look at the disrespect Rep. Daniel Goldman (D-NY) shows to @Julio_Rosas11 as a witness, somebody who was on the ground at violent protests from Charlottesville to Kenosha, and wouldn’t even let him respond.

Following his rant, Representative Goldman was asked by one of the witnesses if they could respond to his comments.
“No you cannot, I didn’t ask a question,” he flippantly replied.
However, Representative Eli Crane (R-AZ) offered some of his time during the hearing, affording Rosas an opportunity to respond.
“It’s funny to be lectured by an heir to the Levi Strauss Corporation,” Rosas fired back.

“And, honestly, that’s probably why he doesn’t consider property damage to be that big of a deal because, not only does he have that, but he also has what some people would describe [as] an impossibly good stock portfolio,” the conservative writer added.
Check and mate.

Sketchy Stock Trades
When you have sketchy stock trades in your back pocket as an insult for a congressman acting like a punk, you know it’s good stuff.
Rosas continued to figuratively murder Goldman on social media, calling him a “coward” for not being present when he was finally able to respond and noting that yes, he does know more about Antifa violence than the FBI Director.
“As you can see in the beginning, [Goldman] was too much of a coward to be in the hearing room for my response to his baseless attack,” he tweeted. “And yes, I know more about Antifa than the discredited FBI director.”

Townhall’s Julio Rosas, unlike Goldman or the FBI Director, has been on the ground documenting several riots in America involving Antifa, including those surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse incident and the violent protests over George Floyd.
Goldman, as Rosas suggests, has been the recipient of some awfully well-timed stock trades.
The New York Post reports that the Democrat lawmaker “sold up to $15,000 in stock in Credit Suisse” days before it was reported that they had violated a plea deal by helping rich clients evade taxes.
And just days before that he “dumped $15,000 worth of First Republic Bank” while their stock plummeted following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

Goldman’s “impossibly good stock portfolio” is a result of over 500 trades since being sworn into office. Those trades, according to the Post, are “worth between $10 million and nearly $31 million.”
Bloomberg reports that he has a personal net worth of up to $253 million.
