Conservative commentator Candace Owens appeared Tuesday before a House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism.

During the hearing, Democratic California Rep. Ted Lieu said, “Of all the people the Republicans could’ve selected [for the hearing], they pick Candace Owens. I don’t know Miss Owens; I’m not going to characterize her; I’m going to let her own words talk.”

Lieu then held up a cellphone and played a recording of Candace Owens speaking about Adolf Hitler and nationalism, which surfaced online in February(RELATED: Twitter Suspends Candace Owens – Then Says It Was An ‘Error’ After Backlash)

In the video, Owens can be heard saying, “When we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing people think about — at least in America — is Hitler. You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK then, fine. The problem is, he had dreams outside of Germany.”

Lieu posed a question to Eileen Hershenov, one of the other people testifying to the committee: “When people try to legitimize Adolf Hitler, does that feed into white nationalist ideology?”
