Three Republicans were outed for their involvement in Donald Trump’s Ukraine scandal last week. Now, those same Republicans are either hiding or waiting patiently in hopes that the news will disappear.
MSNBC’s Steve Benen noted the sudden silence from these three Republicans.
The three Republicans Benen refers to are, Rep. Devin Nunes, Sen. Ron Johnson, and Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller.
Nunes was recently probed by Democratic colleague Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) as to why he was getting “dirt” from a foreign source on former Vice President Joe Biden. He refused to answer.
Johnson also faced similar allegations and was probed by local ABC reporter in Milwaukee about relying on information from pro-Putin Ukrainians. His excuse was that he is “getting information from a variety of sources.”
Then there’s Miller, who “repeatedly dodged a question about whether the campaign is receiving or will accept foreign assistance,” according to the Huffington Post. Miller said it was a “silly question,” even if it was happening in real-time.
“The resulting mosaic isn’t pretty: House Republicans, Senate Republicans, and Team Trump, over the course of the same week, each faced questions about relying on political assistance from foreign sources, and each of them dodged,” wrote Benen.
