As Washington D.C. was gripped once more by anti-Trump hysteria Wednesday, some Republican lawmakers scrambled to be the loudest in their condemnation of the President — with one lawmaker going so far as to contact a left-wing publication to let them know that he was the first Republican to mention a possible impeachment.
The furor gripping Capitol Hill and the mainstream media was triggered by a New York Times report Tuesday outlining a memo by fired FBI Director James Comey. The memo reportedly said that Trump had asked Comey to quash the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
While some Republicans were skeptical about what was essentially a report about part of a memo about a conversation, some anti-Trump Republican lawmakers pounced. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a long-time Trump opponent, told CBS News’s Bob Schieffer, “It’s reaching the point where it’s of Watergate size and scale.”
Comments reader Charles: “Too many Republicans are girly men. There is nothing here. The DNC computers were not hacked by the Russians. A disgruntled Bernie supporter who was murdered gave the information to WikiLeaks. The FBI never examined the DNC computers (likely because they had illegal surveillance documents on Republicans). Republicans never fight back and are just too PC. They bring a knife to a gunfight.”
