4. Having to do with Trump trying to call Tuberville

While Representatives and Senators were hiding in fear for their lives on January 6, Trump was busy trying to rally support to his cause and called what he thought was Senator Tuberville's number, but which turned out to be Senator Lee's phone. According to a news report, Lee took the call and handed the phone over to Tuberville, who just happened to be sheltering in the same barricaded office. The news report about this unbelievable vignette (Why was Trump calling Tuberville instead of trying to call off the mob he'd unleashed?) said that Lee made certain characterizations of what he heard of Tuberville's end of the phone conversation. The House managers described what the news report said of Lee's characterizations. Lee objected to that description, claiming he hadn't said anything of the sort, and demanding that the House managers' quotation of the news report be taken down (removed from the official record).

What was said about Lee was not germane to the House managers' presentation, and they agreed to have the remarks stricken because it was immaterial. Lee protested some more about how his delicate fee-fees were irretrievably hurt by the news report and the insensitivity of the House managers in bringing up such a sore subject. Nobody cares, but you can bet that Lee will use this one isolated episode to justify months and months of incessant whining about being misquoted.
