Joan Walsh Rips Trump Supporter Steve Cortes for ‘Demonizing’ FBI/DOJ: They ‘Keep Us Safe’

‘That’s outrageous that you would say that’

Joan Walsh Rips Trump Supporter Steve Cortes for ‘Demonizing’ FBI/DOJ: They ‘Keep Us Safe’ (Mediaite)

Joan Walsh pummeled former Trump adviser Steve Cortes on CNN Wednesday night, during a discussion of revelations that controversial FBI agent Peter Strzok actually co-wrote the letter sent to Congress by then-FBI director James Comey announcing the reopening of the Clinton email investigation.

Strzok, who was removed from the Russia investigation after his anti-Trump text messages were discovered, has been a target of Republicans seeking to undermine the credibility of the special probe. That he co-wrote Comey’s letter to Congress — which many claim sealed Hillary Clinton’s fate in the 2016 election — is a counterpoint to accusations that his political bias interfered with his work.
