Former George W Bush communications director Nicolle Wallace wondered if Republicans are “dead inside” for their efforts to attack the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“Let’s tick through it, it started with Devin Nunes, who was basically a stooge of some Trump NSC staffer since fired in the Kelly regime,” Wallace reminded. “If you tick through all of the fake scandals that the partisan Republicans on the intel committees have tried to sort of throw up to, I don’t know what, to distract — here’s the thing, why don’t they want to get down to the bottom of Russian collusion?”
“Why don’t they care about that?” Wallace asked again.
“Are Republicans dead inside?” Wallace asked former Congressional Budget Office director Doug Holtz-Eakin.
“Why don’t Republicans care that a Republican-led Justice Department, a Republican-led FBI, led by men appointed by Donald Trump is being smeared and the character of the men leading those agencies assassinated by people associated with the Republican Party, not the Democratic Party?” Wallace asked.
“I obviously can’t answer for a Republican, I don’t know how they think about this,” Holtz-Eakin replied.
“Can you call some?” Wallace followed up. “I mean, what’s wrong with them?”
