Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) dismissed claims that a much-anticipated House Intelligence Committee-generated memo was altered in a way that would distort the information misleadingly.
According to Gaetz, the changes were grammatical.
Gaetz also reacted to a tweet from former FBI Director James Comey invoking former Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI), an outspoken opponent of possible communist infiltration of the U.S. government.
All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.
— James Comey (@Comey) February 1, 2018
“I would remind Director Comey: I don’t know that too many schools or streets are going to be named after him once this memo is into the public square,” Gaetz added.
