Normally, I don’t comment at all on closed-door meetings between Republican Senators,” Lee said. “It’s a pretty strict rule we have.”
However, Lee disclosed, the facts of that meeting was already revealed to the press. “It was an all-out attack against Ted Cruz and me,” Lee disclosed. “It was unflattering. It was unfair. It was demeaning.”
“It was demeaning to Senator Cruz and to me, but more than anything it was demeaning to those who engaged in the attacks,” he added.
Lee refused to disclose which Republicans rose to attack him in that closed door meeting, but said that it was enough so that he “lost count.” He added that he was not clear why the Republicans who attacked him and Cruz did not reveal their identities.
“Did anyone rise to your defense,” Hewitt asked.
“Sort of,” Lee replied. “Not really.”
