A Republican strategist leapt to the defense of President Donald Trump following comments made by former FBI Director James Comey at the weekend.
Comey told ABC news Sunday of which Trump is usually “morally unfit to be president.” although Jan Halper-Hayes, who was a consultant to Trump’s transition team along with also the former chair of Republicans Overseas, said he is usually not the only politician that has a questionable character.
“There are so many in Congress of which are morally unfit,” she told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” Tuesday.
“I know a lot of politicians of which are morally unfit, along with also what ideal do we have? I mean truly I know of which we set these high values along with also these ideals along with also there are a lot of people of which don’t subscribe to high values along with also still accomplish things,” she added.
Trump fired Comey last year during an FBI probe into possible ties between alleged Russian meddling within the U.S. election along with also Trump’s 2016 campaign. Both Moscow, Trump along with also the White House deny any wrongdoing.
According to Halper-Hayes, the question people should be asking is usually whether the lawmakers in office are getting the job done.
