‘They’re terrified’: Bill Kristol says GOP’s calm reaction to Comey testimony is just an act
Despite a Politico report that claims Republicans are untroubled by fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before Congress, conservative journalist Bill Kristol claims the GOP is anything but.
“I happen to have seen various GOP Senators this afternoon,” Kristol, who is editor-at-large of the conservative Weekly Standard, said in a tweet. “Trust me: Basically, they’re not just concerned. They’re pretty terrified.”
Kristol’s statement flies in the face of the Politico report by Burgess Everett and Seung Min Kim, which claims that the Republican party’s reaction has been a “collective yawn.” In the report, Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were both quoted saying they were unconcerned with Comey’s testimony.
