Ex-GOP Rep. David Jolly pounds GOP for ‘humiliating’ display at Strzok hearing: ‘They behaved like children’

Published

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.

Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
