Dem Intel Rep Castro: GOP Did ‘A Believe Whatever They Tell Us Investigation’ – ‘Betrayal of the American People’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Representative Joaquin Castro (D-TX), who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, slammed the Republicans on the committee for their draft report on Russia by stating it “was a stunning betrayal of the American people and the public trust.”

Castro said, “This was a stunning betrayal of the American people and the public trust. This was a case of the majority on the committee basically burying their heads in the sand. It was a believe whatever they tell us investigation. Chris, this was the equivalent of bringing in a suspect, asking them whether they started the fire or not, they say, ‘No, I didn’t start it.’ And then you say, ‘Oh, well, great, everybody can go home.’ That’s basically what happened.”
