Democratic senator Ed Markey rebuked President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey earlier this week, adding that the president created a “constitutional crisis.”
The Massachusetts lawmaker also made an unsubstantiated claim that about the investigation into Trump’s campaign team’s alleged ties with Russia during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.
“There are very strong allegations that the Russians had relationships with people inside of the Trump campaign,” Markey said.
He added, “In fact, subpoenas have now been issued in Northern Virginia with regard to General Flynn and General Flynn’s associates. A grand jury has been empaneled up in New York.”
Markey’s staff later told The Daily Caller that the senator did not mention during his TV appearance that his sources were left-wing website Palmer Report and Louise Mensch’s blog.
Mensch and the Palmer Report have a long history of reporting stories that were baseless. In response, Markey’s office formally apologized for making false statements to the public.
100% Fed Up reports:
The Democrats are lying all over the place along with the main stream media…it’s hard to keep up with the lies. This is shameful and every one of these people should be called out on their lies. Markey repeated something he read on two blogs! So who repeats as FACT something they just READ about on two blogs? Unbelievable!
