House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that Republican lawmakers had come up to him privately to “express their deep concerns and worries” about the Trump administration and offer bits of encouragement, Politico reports.
Said Schiff: “But I’m, frankly, exhausted by the private misgivings. People need to speak out.”
He added: “I think what we knew, implicitly, was that courage is contagious. But what we didn’t realize is that cowardice is also contagious. I think there’s been an epidemic of cowardice in the GOP. This president doesn’t stand for anything that the Republican Party said it stood for.”Save to Favorites
