In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) opened up about a closed-door meeting he recently had with the Republican Senate colleagues in which both he and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) were “attacked.” Lee said that the terms used by his fellow Republicans to attack the two Senators were “demeaning.” He asked why, given that the details of the meeting were leaked to the press, that his GOP colleagues did not reveal their identities.
“There was allegedly a Republican Senate Conference meeting earlier this week where your colleague, Ted Cruz, took a lot of slings and arrows,” Hewitt said.
“Normally, I don’t comment at all on closed-door meetings between Republican Senators,” Lee said. “It’s a pretty strict rule we have.”
