Elder Patriot – Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, joined host Laura Ingraham in studio to discuss future legal proceedings on the political bias that existed at the FBI when they exonerated Hillary Clinton and persecuted Donald Trump.
Senator Graham renewed his call for Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel.
Pause to consider this for just a minute.
Yesterday we outlined the likely outcome of such a move.
… the average time for a special counsel to conclude its work is 904 days. The recent special counsel investigation conducted by Robert Mueller was completed relatively quickly. It took nearly 700 days.
Do the math.
If Graham still wants a special counsel to do this he is laying the foundation for this to drag on through the next election.
Now consider that his counterpart in the House, Jerrold Nadler (chairman of the House Judiciary Committee) has gone all-in on continuing the effort to take down President Trump. Already, he’s issued 81 subpoenas. Nadler understands politics is bloodsport.
Graham promised President Trump bold action and now he wants to punt because he wants to avoid the appearance of bias. This is a coward’s approach. Or, worse.
Sen. Graham must seize the moment or get out of the way. Do Democrats care about the appearance of political bias as they turn our constitution upside down hunting President Trump?
Too bad Teddy Roosevelt isn’t alive to clean this mess up. Does anyone believe he’d shrink from the task? Or, would T.R. seize the moment and do what few men would have the courage to do?
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – T.R.
What assurances can Sen. Graham give the American people that a special counsel wouldn’t be swayed by political considerations or threats against him or his family?
Never forget that Lindsey Graham made his bones riding John McCain’s coattails as a member of the Mitch McConnell’s Decepticons.
While Graham’s pious outburst castigating Democrats for their disgusting character destruction of Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings was spectacular, it should not be allowed to wipe clean his duplicitous resume.
With the future of the republic literally riding on severely punishing those who perpetrated this treasonous scheme against the people, and their president, only a coward would punt away the opportunity Graham has.
This is an opportunity to write his name into the history books. What patriot wouldn’t jump at the chance to cleanse the rot that has infested our government over a century of Marxist infiltration?
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ~ Cicero
Hopefully Attorney General William Barr, who will ultimately decide between appointing another special counsel or keeping the investigation of criminal referrals coming from Devin Nunes (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) in house, will be more Teddy Roosevelt than Lindsey Graham.
