Democratic Sen.: House Republicans Engaging in ‘Increasingly Baseless Attacks’ on DOJ, FBI

On CNN this afternoon, Sen. Chris Coons (D- DE) slammed Republican lawmakers for joining in the ongoing attacks on the DOJ and FBI, given President Trump‘s “deep state” tweet. Wolf Blitzer asked if he’s concerned about Trump using the DOJ “for his own ends.” Coons said he is. Blitzer also brought up recent reporting about Devin Nunes and the direction of the House Intel Committee investigation. He asked Coons if Nunes is “trying to muddy the waters.” Coons responded, “I’m concerned that a number of House Republicans are making increasingly baseless attacks on the Department of Justice and the FBI.” He called it not just demoralizing but “destabilizing to the rule of law” for these Republicans to help President Trump undermine the investigation.
