Reporters nail GOP for humiliating itself in Russia memo fiasco
“The Democratic memo made the GOP memo look even stupider.”
Trump and the Republicans are still confronting the humiliation of their failed intelligence memo. Now that the Democrats have released their rebuttal, that embarrassment is only growing.
But on Saturday, a redacted version of the Democratic response was finally released. And it quickly became clear why Trump didn’t want it to see the light of day.
On MSNBC Sunday afternoon, two reporters nailed the Republican Party’s failure.
Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker noted that the new document was “much more devastating” for Republicans than Nunes’ was for the Democrats.
And HuffPost reporter Laura Bassett labeled the Republican document an “own goal.”
“What they set out to do, they did the opposite,” she noted, before easily summing up the latest humiliation.
“The Democratic memo made the GOP memo look even stupider,” she said.
This entire debacle further shows how desperate Trump and his Republican enablers are to protect him from the Russia investigation.
But as former Trump adviser Rick Gates’ guilty plea this week shows, time is running out for all of them.
