"Unfortunately, there is more anger in politics today than ever before. And we are receiving many very hateful, very angry emails and phone calls from some on the liberal-left side of the political spectrum," Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., Tennessee Republican, said in a letter to groups requesting a town hall.
"Before I came to Congress, I spent several years as a criminal court judge. I presided over several hundred felony criminal cases. And I can assure you that I saw many cases where the evidence of criminal intent was flimsier than the evidence in this case," said Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., Tennessee Republican.
