Maxwell finally relented after Hawley questioned his commitment to sobriety. “I’m happy to do a blood alcohol test. I’ve had no alcohol… And that was a joke. I want to clarify for you.” “We’ll save the festivities for this weekend when the Saint Patrick’s Day festivities kick off.”
Maxwell hasn’t mentioned the discussion of his sobriety publicly, but has shared footage from the broadcast segment of the actual interview — seemingly after Hawley put him on the hot seat.
I love interviews https://t.co/sMXfmHeCgf— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) March 17, 2023
It’s unclear if KDSK intended the pre-interview exchange to be publicly released. Fox News released the footage on Thursday. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Sen. Josh Hawley finds common ground with Elizabeth Warren. He filed a bill to claw back bonuses paid to SVB executives, ban banks from passing higher insurance fees on to customers, and exempt community banks from paying those higher fees. He says he’d bring back Glass-Steagall. pic.twitter.com/AQ0nVk77yq— Mark Maxwell (@MarkMaxwellTV) March 16, 2023
