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.

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying
President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.
The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.
"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."

GOP looks like it’s in a ‘state of panic’ after labeling combat veteran a ‘socialist loser’ for running as a Democrat: columnist
Republicans in Cincinnati, Ohio, may have overstepped the boundaries of poor taste, calling a former Air Force pilot a "socialist loser."
As columnist Jason Williams writes in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the GOP majorly flubbed their campaign against the Democrat.
"Yeesh, not a good look for the Trump Party," Williams writes. "Democrat Nikki Foster is neither a socialist nor a loser, from what little we know about the Mason moderate after she launched her campaign in Ohio's 1st Congressional District on Monday."
