Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) stated to CNN it would not be easy to discover who wrote the NYT op-ed by saying “who wouldn’t have written” it.
Cooker stated, “I didn’t look at it as new news. I mean, anyone who’s had any dealings over there knows that this is the reality that we’re living in. So I think a lot’s been made out of nothing. I think the biggest issue they’re going to have is figuring out who wouldn’t have written a letter like that.”
