Sen. Chris Murphy responds to Sen. Ron Johnson's interview immediately ahead of his on Sunday's edition of "Meet the Press."
"I'm deeply scared by the positioning Republicans have chosen to take," Murphy said. "That interview was just a giant green light to the president of the United States to continue to solicit interference in U.S. elections."
"This entire country should be scared that in a moment where we need patriots, what we are getting is blind partisan loyalty," he added. "As you see more Republicans go into the bunker like that, and the president go deeper into trying to get more countries to interfere in our elections, I think public opinions will change. It is true that this president seemingly could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and Republicans won't care... I think there are a lot fo regular citizens out there who are going to demand Republicans make a decision based on the facts not based on loyalty to the cult of Donald Trump."
