Welp, it looks like Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has at least one Republican counterpart who doesn’t publicly hold Bashar al-Assad responsible for the latest chemical weapons attack against innocent Syrian civilians:

More from CNN:

“Frankly, I don’t think Assad would have done that,” Massie said. “It does not serve his interests.”

When a visibly stunned Bolduan pressed Massie on who — if not Assad — may be responsible for the attack, Massie seemed to suggest that the incident could have been unintentional.

“You’ve got a war going on over there,” Massie said. “Supposedly that airstrike was on an ammo dump, and so I don’t know if it was released because there was gas stored in the ammo dump or not — that’s plausible.”

Oh.

Massie may have royally stepped in it here.
