Little by little Republicans in Congress are going to come around to the idea impeachment for Trump. Many of them never liked the fake Republican in the first place. McCain, in particular, wants revenge for what The Donald said about him during the presidential campaign last year:
Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) reportedly said Tuesday that scandals within President Trump’s administration are reaching a “Watergate size and scale.”
Some Republicans just pretend not to know:
I want to begin by asking you about a story that The New York Times has just posted about a memo, a contemporaneous memo that former FBI Director James Comey wrote after a meeting with the president on the day that Michael Flynn resigned as national security adviser.
He quotes the president as asking him to let the investigation into Flynn go: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.”
He interprets it, Mr. Comey interprets it as asking for an FBI investigation not to go forward.
Do you have any reaction to this?
SEN. JAMES RISCH, R-Idaho: Haven’t seen it. Don’t know anything about it. Haven’t read it. And before I comment on it, I want a lot more — I would want to know a lot more about it than what I do. But thanks for asking.
