Orrin Hatch tears into Washington Post opioids report: It's meant to derail Trump's drug czar nominee

Via Billy


Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Monday a news investigation about whether a bill he sponsored disarmed the Drug Enforcement Agency from going after drug companies was meant to smear President Trump's nominee for drug czar, who sponsored the bill on the House side.

"I think we need to be candid about what's going on here," Hatch said in floor remarks. "Opponents of the current administration are trying to derail the president's nominee to be head of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Rep. Tom Marino, by mischaracterizing and trying to rewrite the history of a bill that he championed."
