In the first five minutes of the clip below from Tuesday night’s TMRS, Rachel calls out Chuck Grassley, reminding us that he made a public statement, replying to a constituent question at a town hall meeting in Mt. Ayr, Iowa in August, that the transcripts of Glenn Simpson’s 10 hours of testimony before the senate judiciary committee could be released to the public. Grassley is now going back on his statement. A lawyer for Simpson said in a statement Wednesday:
“The Chairman’s [Grassley’s] office misstates the history of Mr. Simpson’s cooperation with its investigation,” said Fusion GPS attorney Joshua Levy in a statement. Should the Committee choose to release his testimony, the public will see a 300-page transcript covering 10 hours of questions and answers.”
Contact Grassley and demand that the transcripts be released. Full segment of Tuesday night’s show can be found here: msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show
