This morning, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the co-hosts of “Morning Joe,” had some harsh words for the Republicans who were supposed to question James Comey as he testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee.
The FBI director confirmed what the world already knew that members of Donald Trump’s campaign are being investigated for coordinating with Russian officials that hacked Democrats or meddled in the 2016 race.
The former Republican representative said he was happy that Comey finally debunked Trump’s claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones at the Trump Tower.
Trump made the unfounded allegations during one of his erratic Saturday morning rants using his favorite communication tool – Twitter.
While at his Mar-a-Lago estate, the president of these United States tweeted: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
Mr. Scarborough said the following on the weekday morning talk show: “Obviously number one, Donald Trump was lying about Barack Obama. We knew it, but now we got confirmation from the FBI and the Justice Department.”
Scarborough went on to say that he finds it shameful that after the Democrats, now the Republicans have made Comey Public Enemy No. 1.
He later slammed the conservatives, who turned a blind eye on the Trump/Russia ties instead focusing on who leaked the embarrassing telephone conversations between Trump and several world leaders and his 2005 tax returns.
The television personality explained: “All most House Republicans wanted to talk about was how reporters got the information to get out to America that their president, the White House, and the campaign team is under investigation for collusion.”
He concluded by stating: “It was one of the most shameful performances, at a time when America is at a turning point.”
Brzezinski also shared her thoughts on the scandal by saying: “Can you imagine being Hillary Clinton watching the proceedings yesterday?”
Many predict that as he did with Clinton, Comey will pursue with the drip, drip, drip and cause chaos in the Trump administration.
