Mike Lee was just interviewed by Dana Bash on CNN about the roll call vote being denied by the RNC, claiming that three states dropped out of the petition.
Lee says this was not an effort to embarrass Trump, as some are reporting. He said this wasn’t a Trump vs anti-Trump protest. Lee says this was about a disagreement on the rules and that’s it.
As Lee was speaking, anti-Trump delegates came over and starting shouting about Trump to try and drown Lee out. But Lee says that’s their right and took no umbrage at their attempt to silence him.
