Seth Meyers Takes “A Closer Look” at the Republicans’ Response to the Comey Memo

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers takes “A Closer Look” at the recent news that FBI Director James Comey wrote a detailed memo after a meeting with Donald Trump that reveals Trump told Comey to drop the ongoing investigation against his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. While Meyers points out that the reaction among Democrats and the news media has turned toward the possibility of impeachment, in the case of Republicans, suddenly none of them are willing to be interviewed on TV and defend Trump. “Even Fox News can’t get Republicans to come on. That’s like E! not being able to book a Kardashian,” Meyers says. “Look, there are now documented allegations that the president may have committed obstruction of justice. Congress needs to take this seriously. Instead, GOP leaders seem to be maintaining their cynical alliance with Trump just to get some tax cuts passed.”
