Jeremy Peters: ‘Every Time Trump Does Something, There Is an Overreaction’

‘That strikes me as something that is much more problematic than the evolving story of how Trump came to decide that Comey needed to go’


PETERS: "But I think that what’s important to understand here is why you’re not seeing more of a reaction from Republicans, more of a call for an independent investigation, is the sense that every time Trump does something, there is an overreaction, a hyperventilation on the left. And I’m not saying that it’s not warranted in this case, but every little thing that he’s done becomes the next constitutional crisis. So the Republicans’ reflex is to say, 'Oh, that’s just the liberals and the media trying to shout him down, trying to stifle our voice once again,' and that’s where I think this resistance is coming from."
