MSNBC host Joe Scarborough lashed out Monday at U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and her feigned shock at the contents of the declassified report on CIA interrogation policies.
During a “Morning Joe” panel discussion on the Senate Intelligence Committee report, which was critical of interrogation practices, Scarborough called out several Democrats by name, saying the report was skewed.
“Dianne Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Jay Rockefeller and a cast of other liberals that were shocked, shocked, shocked that this was going on in 2005 and 2006, when the report started coming out, were fully briefed on it in 2002,” he said. “Dianne Feinstein in particular had more information about what was going on, and Jay Rockefeller, as well, had — they all — all the liberals on the intel committee that are acting so shocked a decade later, safely removed from 9/11, were the very ones saying what else can we do in 2002.”
Scarborough said their actions were preposterous.
“This is — you know, they ask people to go out and try to save Americans from the next 9/11,” he said. “And they get information, and then a decade later, when they’re trying to cover their ass, they put out a skewed report like this that is a political statement and a political document. It’s outrageous, and it’s disgraceful.”
