The calls of stupidity aimed at the House Republicans grew louder Thursday evening after they released the memos from former FBI director James Comey.
During a panel discussion with CNN’s Don Lemon, Republican Rick Wilson was astonished that the House Republicans would be so stupid to release memos that not only made the president look worse but made Comey look better.
“I don’t think his congressional allies did him any favors tonight by revealing these memos,” Wilson said, agreeing with many commentators speaking out on Twitter Thursday. “If they thought this was going to make Comey and had investigation look bad, this is once again reminding people of the concept of Trump, hookers and Russia all in one big package. It’s astounding how they released these tonight.”
Wilson was also shocked at how guilty President Donald Trump comes off in the memos.
“This is one more example of Donald Trump either having a relationship with Vladimir Putin that he hasn’t been honest about it, or trying to impress people with an imaginary relationship with Vladimir Putin,” Wilson also said. “This is guy whose behavior — I mean the stink of guilt is all over this guy.”
