“Republican Congressman Mike Turner and Michael McCaul said that Russian propaganda has infected the Republican Party’s base and the Republicans in Congress were repeating Russian propaganda on the House floor.

Turner argued that concerns about the FISA misuse, including surveillance that was conducted on individuals associated with the Trump campaign,

“And I mean, even let’s just rewind a second. We just went through an impeachment attempt on the president of the United States that was started with a source that Republicans used that was in communication with Russian intelligence.”
