Lindsey Graham doesn't want Mueller's report public without a new Clinton probe
29 replies, posted
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Thursday that he could not back a congressional effort to make special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report public unless lawmakers tasked an
entirely new special counsel with probing the Department of Justice’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, among other things.
On Thursday morning, the House passed—without a single no vote—a nonbinding resolution to make the Mueller report public. Hours later, Graham went to the floor aiming to file an
amendment to the version the Senate would take up. It called for Attorney General William Barr to appoint a new special counsel to investigate “misconduct” in the Department of
Justice over the email investigation and the FBI’s surveillance of Carter Page, a former aide to the Trump campaign.
“Any American out there who did what Secretary Clinton did, you'd be in jail now,” Graham declared. “The question I want to know is, does anybody other than me believe that?”
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who was on the floor pushing for the Senate to take up the Mueller resolution, was left shaking his head as Graham advanced his
argument, which echoed President Trump’s frequent attacks on the Mueller probe and the Department of Justice.
Are we STILL talking about Clinton? I mean seriously? How can a group be this hung up over SOMEONE THAT THEY BEAT?!
Because the GOP needs enemies to function.
If I hear this argument of "Well we shouldn't have to if they don't do x!" one more time..
No shit they should start an investigation, but using that as an excuse to stop the results of the one they just completed? Come on.
I can tell there's also going to be a severe lack of "but think of all the millions wasted by this investigation!" once it's Hillary being the one investigated.
‘Any American out there who did what Secretary Clinton did, you'd be in jail now,’
Oh you mean like the current administration is using personal emails for official business which has been known since like 6 months in
Meanwhile you could make an entirely separate wikipedia article titled "List of Clinton email investigations"
Buttery males. 1000 hours in ms paint.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE GODDAMN EMAILS GUISE
They probably have a cross full of dust and humidity hidden somewhere, waiting for Hillary or something.
I seriously think Graham is compromised. He's ripe for it and this kind of rhetoric is a complete 180 from not too long ago.
Can you imagine what would happen if we had a corrupt president by golly.
Certainly no worse than someone who isn't in power!!!
this is not kindergarden politics, you don't just get something because the other side has one, especially since HRC is now a private citizen and has been for 6-7 years.
AG Barr: Right, I'll get right on that, Senator Graham. I've got just the man in mind, he's our newest inter-I mean best investigator around, and he'll do the lazi-I mean best job around. You can trust us!
i mean this is the same drama queen that threw a hissy fit during the kavanaugh hearings about how unethical it is to thoroughly examine a supreme court justice's possible bias and misconduct, doesnt seem that out of character to me
That was after he did his 180 and became Trump's Rottweiler in the senate.
Man when she dies we'll have to give her an anti-vampire burial just so Republicans can sleep at night without worrying about her coming back as the first Undead President.
When she dies she'll have to be interred in a coffin with two feet of concrete poured around it on all sides or else some MAGA fucktard will try and dig up and desecrate the corpse for likes and favourites.
When something UNANIMOUSLY passes the house, and gets blocked completely in the senate, you know something's wrong
Senate is compromised
Well we know that President Trump is allegedly using his personal (insecure) phone for Presidential duties, and we know his nepotism got family members access to top secret information.
If we're ~so concerned~ about our national secrets, then when do we launch those probes?
I hadn't heard of Graham for long enough that I allowed myself to hope he'd shrivelled up and died somewhere.
We've always been friendly with Russia.
you wanna hear about real nepotism
HAS A BOYFRIEND
Real talk, if some Republicans are genuinely upset AOC has a boyfriend, I guess we know which party has the incel vote.
So what happens now? Will they still be able to release the results of the probe or will another vote have to take place?
(I didn't get the implications of why this was posted at first, but I checked the comments section. Go to 26:00 in the video for more.)
The speculation about the 26:00 story being about Lindsey Graham has a lot more implications to it than just "there's a closeted Senator in congress now". Few would really care about that. The reason this is so interesting is because back in 2016, Graham confirmed to the public that his emails had been hacked - I can't remember if he knew that Russia was behind it or not, but he confirmed it. Shortly after this was when Graham took a RADICAL turn on how he felt about Trump. Once upon a time, Graham was one of the most staunch critics of Trump, and called him a number of derogatory names, so the fact that he has turned so drastically in favor of him has raised more than a few eyebrows. To be blunt, the speculation is that Russia either hacked his emails directly or they got a hold of his hacked emails, they have dirt on him (likely about his sexual behavior but probably other incriminating things too) and they're using this to blackmail him to defend & enable Trump, a guy he used to be staunchly opposed to. It certainly makes sense, but it remains speculative. Hopefully we find out the truth someday.
Check the date, you can guess when he started tooting Trump's horn
What part of there were MULTIPLE Benghazi investigations that ALL failed to pin Clinton to the wall do these morons not understand?
Like, Clinton could be crushed by a falling piano and I wouldn’t bat an eye, but give it a fucking rest. Clinton didn’t win the fucking election. Clinton wasn’t shown to be in bed with foreign powers. Clinton wasn’t brain dead as a president and a massive national security risk.
They have evidence he’s in the closet.
