A Democratic lawmaker mentioned Republican lawmakers who don’t actively criticize President Trump over the Nunes memo are worse than the deplorable “true believers.”
In a tweet Sunday afternoon responding to outstanding “#NeverTrump” neoconservative Bill Kristol, U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu of California mentioned Mr. Trump is making an attempt “to smear our institutions.”
I do know GOP Members who actually consider @FBI is a hotbed of liberalism & Uranium One is a scandal. I don’t fault true believers. But many GOP Members don't percentage the ones ideals, but allow Trump to smear our establishments. They are being cowards & historical past will pass judgement on them harshly. https://t.co/e6JWzLO2Nt

But he additionally mentioned Republican conspiracy theorists are preferable to “cowards” who don’t cling the ones ideals — probably together with Mr. Kristol.
“I know GOP Members who truly believe @FBI is a hotbed of liberalism & Uranium One is a scandal. I don’t fault true believers,” Mr. Lieu mentioned earlier than bringing down the hammer of “History” on the entire GOP.
“But many GOP Members do not share those beliefs, yet enable Trump to smear our institutions. They are being cowards & history will judge them harshly,” Mr. Lieu wrote.
The House intelligence committee launched Friday a memo accusing the FBI of politically motivated abuse of secrecy regulations in spying on Trump marketing campaign officers. Mr. Trump mentioned Saturday the document vindicates him and proves that “Russia collusion” is a pretend scandal.
