Lindsey Graham is back at it again. Criticizing the House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes by calling his investigation an “Inspector Clouseau Investigation.”
“I think it’s a little bizarre. There’s nothing been revealed to suggest the Obama administration surveilled the Trump campaign. That’s not even what Nunes is saying. He’s saying there’s incidental collection outside of Russia,” Graham said.
“The problem he’s created is he’s gone out on a lark by himself, sort of an Inspector Clouseau investigation here, trying to find some unmasking information about collection incidental with the Trump campaign and some foreign agent outside of Russia. I think the only way this can be repaired is if he tells his colleagues on the House Intelligence committee who he met with and what he saw.”
Look at the distraction that Lindsey Graham attempts to create here. He tries to imply that the intelligence collection was legal, therefore there’s not an issue. What Graham completely ignores is that Trump officials were unmasked and then the information was shared widely with the intelligence community and media.
Then he goes one step further and questions the integrity of the Chairman of the Committee, Devin Nunes.
“He put his objectivity in question at the very least,” Graham said. “Here’s what I would suggest — that Devin go to his Democratic colleagues and share the information that he was given by this unknown person so they’d all know exactly what he’s talking about. If he’s not willing to tell the Democrats and Republicans on the committee who he met with and what he was told, then I think he’s lost his ability to lead.”
“I have no idea [who his source is] and I think you should know that and I should know that,” Graham continued. “I think he owes that to his fellow committee members, that if he went down to the White House and was given classified information about some impropriety about surveilling the Trump campaign he needs to share that with his fellow committee members at the very minimum.”
Watch via Today:
Why would Graham do this? It’s because he’s actually part of the establishment and in league with democrats. Here is an example of how they take his assist and slam dunk it in Republicans’ faces.
Representative Jackie Speier above actually refers to both Graham and McCain as Republican Senators that agree with her. It’s just sad that the Republicans have to deal with this sort of mutiny.
