Update On Rep. Harriett Hageman

I had suggested that Rep. Harriett Hageman (R-WY) would make a great addition to House Judiciary Committee. This was in my post entitled An Interesting Factoid On Cargill Win. Rep. Hageman was one of the attorneys representing Michael Cargill in his appeal in the 5th Circuit on the bumpstock ban.

Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) must have been listening as she is one of the new members of the committee.

From his release last week:

“We’re excited to welcome all new and returning members of the House Judiciary Committee to the 118th Congress. House Judiciary Republicans are ready to get to work on the important issues facing the American people by passing legislation that will secure the southern border, investigating the weaponization of the federal government against the American people, and reining in Big Tech’s censorship of free speech.”

Rep. Ben Cline (VA-06)

Interesting Factoid On Cargill Win

I stumbled across an interesting factoid on the bumpstock case win in the 5th Circuit. The appellant, Michael Cargill, was represented in the case by the New Civil Liberties Alliance. The attorneys representing Mr. Cargill in the appeal were Richard Samp, Mark Chenoweth, and Harriet Hageman.

Wait a minute – Harriet Hageman? Where have I heard that name before? Didn’t someone by that name defeat former Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) in the primary and go on to win the seat in Congress representing Wyoming?

New Civil Liberties Alliance

Before Harriet Hageman was Congresswoman Hageman, she was Harriet Hageman, Senior Litigation Counsel of the NCLA.

From what I understand she has not been assigned any committees yet. However, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone like her on the House Judiciary Committee. Think of it. Not only did she defeat the DOJ and BATFE in court, she would now be on the House committee overseeing them. That would be karma!
