Lester Holt: Republicans make a ‘fair point’ – Democrats are hypocritical about the Comey firing

President Trump handed NBC News’ Lester Holt five pages of quotes from Democrats calling for FBI Director James Comey to be fired.

NBC News’ Lester Holt said that President Trump and Republicans make a “fair point” that Democrats are being hypocrites regarding FBI Director James Comey’s dismissal on Friday.

Before Holt’s exclusive interview with Trump on Thursday, the president can be seen handing Holt papers. Twitter erupted with people wondering what was on the documents that Trump gave Holt.

NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie asked Holt what it was that Trump handed him during a Friday morning interview on the Today Show.

“It was five pages of quotes of Democrats who have been critical of Comey, a few calling for his resignation, calling for his firing,” Holt told Guthrie holding up the packet.

“And it makes a fair point that a lot of Democrats were not happy with Comey either, many believing that he torpedoed Hillary Clinton’s chances,” Holt added.
