Rest In Peace, Lindsey Graham
Dana Milbank, The Washington Post, August 31 – We lost two mavericks within a week.
On Saturday, we lost the legendary John McCain.
On Tuesday, we lost his loyal sidekick, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham.
Graham remains alive and well, but after serving for two decades as McCain’s sidekick, Graham buried whatever remained of his own reputation.
On Tuesday, Graham took a seat on the couch of “Fox & Friends,” President Trump’s favorite show, and sealed his transition from apostate to Trump operative.
“Word of caution to the public,” he said. “A lot of people try to convict President Trump. Don’t be so fast. I have seen no evidence of collusion after two years.”
Graham, a former military lawyer, then picked up Trump’s attack on the justice system: “Plenty of corruption at the Department of Justice and the FBI. Should be stunning. Not one Democrat seems to care.”
Graham went on:
“They had a bias against Trump for [Hillary] Clinton . . . They gave a politically corrupt document to get a warrant . . . Christopher Steele was on the payroll of the Democratic Party.”
Incredibly, Graham even joined the “lock her up” movement. “No American would get the same treatment she did. If you were charged or suspected of this kind of misconduct, you would be in jail now” …
But now, Graham says “we need an attorney general that can work with the president.” This week, he even alleged that Sessions “blindsided” Trump with “zero-tolerance” family separations — as though that policy wasn’t a Trump signature.
Graham previously described Trump as a “jackass” and “unfit for office.” He began his pivot after the election, but intensified his embrace of Trump as illness kept McCain from Washington.
“If you don’t like me working with President Trump to make the world a better place, I don’t give a [rip],” he said on CNN in June. Read the full story at the Washington Post.
