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.

Sidney Powell’s ‘Kraken’ lawsuit suffers setback as Georgia GOP county chair demands to be removed
The Republican chair in Cobb County, Georgia said on Thursday that he wanted to be removed from Sidney Powell's election lawsuit because he never gave his consent to be included.
Powell, who was kicked off President Donald Trump's legal team, was criticized this week after she filed a lawsuit in Georgia that was riddled with typos.
Powell had previously promised that the lawsuit would "release the Kraken" in an effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in Georgia.
Justice Sotomayor pens scathing dissent to COVID-19 ruling: This ‘will only exacerbate the Nation’s suffering’
Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted her more conservative colleagues for barring New York state from reimposing coronavirus restrictions on religious gatherings.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, in a late-night emergency ruling, that state officials could not reimpose limits on churches and synagogues to prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus, and Sotomayor penned a scathing dissent that was joined by Justice Elena Kagan.
"Amidst a pandemic that has already claimed over a quarter million American lives, the Court today enjoins one of New York’s public health measures aimed at containing the spread of COVID–19 in areas facing the most severe outbreaks," Sotomayor wrote.
Conservative rips GOP ‘turkeys’ for turning Thanksgiving COVID safety measures into a culture-war fight
Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Tim Miller says that America should be experiencing a time of national solidarity in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead, "we have a president whose focus is entirely on his effort to perpetrate a fraud on the American public."
According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."
