Costa: In the Cloak Rooms, GOP’s ‘Grousing’ About the Way Trump Handled Comey Firing

‘When I was talking to some Senators privately, they’re grousing about the way this was handled at the White House’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
COSTA: "There’s a lot of scrutiny now. What’s the Senate intelligence committee going to do in the wake of Comey? You already have the House Intelligence committee have the problem of the chairman, Devin Nunes of California, recusing himself because of his alliance with the White House and the way all those events unfolded that you’ve deeply covered. Now the pressure is on burr and the republican-controlled house and Senate. How are they going to handle this White House? So far, they’re falling in line publicly, but I’m telling you, Chris, in the cloak room of the Senate and the House — the Senate was in session today. When I was talking to some Senators privately, they’re grousing about the way this was handled at the White House, and they’re saying they’re going to have to politically, to cover themselves, do something in terms of furthering the investigation.
