Does Ron DeSantis remember that he’s running for governor of Florida?
Just a day after officially launching his campaign at an event in Boca Raton on Monday, DeSantis went right back to his favorite hobby: out-Trumping Trump. Instead of talking about real issues that impact Floridians, Nunes spent yesterday defending House Republicans’ release of a top-secret memo aimed to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the president. The move was so unprecedented that even the Trump Justice Department warned that it would be”extraordinarily reckless.” But that didn’t seem to phase Ron DeSantis, who defended the action by making bizarre South Park references. We guess that’s no surprise from a candidate who has always seemed more interested in what’s on television than serving the people of Florida.
Washington Examiner: Ron DeSantis: Democrats’ countersurveillance memo is a ‘sloppy, Chewbacca defense’ to Republicans’ FISA memo
By Kelly Chen
A Republican lawmaker on the House Intelligence Committee said the memo put together by the Democratic minority to counter that of Chairman Devin Nunes should be released because of its “sloppy” rebuttal.
“House Intel should vote to release the Schiff counter-memo. It’s basically a sloppy, Chewbacca defense rejoinder to the Nunes memo that unwittingly buttresses concerns raised in the Nunes memo,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
