Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake unwittingly became part of a “Late Night with Stephen Colbert” sketch recently.
The bit, titled “Stephen Colbert Grabs Capitol Hill By The Memo” aimed to poke fun at the February release of the Nunes memo.
The controversial document, released by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee Republican staff at the direction of Rep. Devin Nunes, R California, alleges the FBI and the DOJ illegally surveilled the Trump presidential campaign.
