Former Rep. Dave Jolly (R-FL) didn’t have much nice to say about the daylong hearing the GOP held on Thursday where they bullied and attacked FBI agent Peter Strzok in a nationally televised spectacle.
Appearing on MSNBC on Friday afternoon with host Katy Tur, the former lawmaker took his party to the woodshed, saying his former colleagues turned the hearing into a “humiliating day to be a Republican.”
“They behaved like children,” he exclaimed. “And it was a humiliating day to be a Republican. This was not about getting answers from Strzok. Even [Rep. Bob] Goodlatte towards the end of the day said each member gets five minutes but Strzok doesn’t get to answer.”
According to Jolly, the Republicans who attacked Strzok were working in conjunction with the White House.
“This has been part of the incremental strategy of both Trump, yes, those in Congress who go along with him, to undermine the integrity of the investigation from the very beginning,” he continued.

Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court
Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault before getting down to the heart of the matter.
"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’
Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.
During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.
"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
