Furious Lindsey Graham Swears Retaliation

The question that we have is why aren’t more politicians just as angry as Graham is?

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham is prepared to investigate if a coup was attempted against President Donald Trump.

Graham spoke to Margaret Brennan on “Face The Nation” Sunday on CBS when he revealed his plans.

Brennan played video of former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe in which he said former Deputy Attorney general Rod Rosenstein considered using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump.

“While he’s publicly denied it, but, the whole point of Congress existing is to provide oversight of the executive branch,” Graham said.

“So through good reporting by “60 Minutes,” there’s an allegation by the acting FBI director at the time that the deputy attorney general was basically trying to do an administrative coup, take the president down to the twenty fifth amendment process,” he said.

“The deputy attorney general denies it. So I promise your viewers the following; that we will have a hearing about who’s telling the truth, what actually happened. Mr. McCabe, you remember, was dismissed from the FBI for leaking information to the press. So you’ve got to remember the source here,” Graham said.

“There has been some parsing though of whether these were extended discussions versus conversations about the 25th Amendment. Do you know whether those conversations have taken place?” Brennan asked.

“No but I think everybody in the country needs to know if it happened. It’s stunning to me that one of the chief law enforcement officers of the land- the acting head of the FBI- would go on national television and say, oh by the way I remember a conversation with the deputy attorney general about trying to find if we could replace the president under the 25th Amendment,” Graham said.

“We’re a democracy. People enforce the law- can’t take it into their own hands. And was this an attempted bureaucratic coup? I don’t know. I don’t know who’s telling the truth. I know Rosenstein vehemently denied it but we’re going to get to the bottom of it,” the senator said.

“I do know there was a lot of monkey business about FISA warrants being issued against Carter Page, about dossiers coming from Russia that were unverified,” he said.

“Mr. Mueller is going to look at the Trump campaign as he should to see if they violated any laws during the 2016 election. And I’m going to do everything I can to get to the bottom of the Department of Justice FBI behavior toward President Trump and his campaign,” he said.

Brennan asked Graham if he thought he was damaging the FBI by saying that they were attempting a coup.

“Quite the opposite. If it happened we need to clean it up. The FBI has gotten off track in the past. It’s one of the greatest organizations in the world. The Hoover years have proven to be pretty dark periods for the FBI. The latter part of the Hoover days where politicians were being blackmailed. There is no organization beyond scrutiny,” Graham said.

“There is no organization that can’t withstand scrutiny. And the FBI will come out stronger. But we’ve got to get to the bottom of it. What are people to think after they watch “60 Minutes” when they hear this accusation by the acting deputy- acting FBI director that the deputy attorney general encouraged him to try to find ways to count votes to replace the president? That can’t go unaddressed. And it will be addressed. That’s what oversight is all about,” he said.

He also said that he intends to subpoena McCabe and Rosenstein to get to the bottom of it.

“I mean you’re doing your job. The first amendment allows you to ask questions of the most powerful people in the country. I know he’s selling a book, and we need to take with a grain of salt maybe what Mr. McCabe is telling us,” he said.

“But he went on national television and he made an accusation that floors me. You know, I can imagine if the shoe were on the other foot, this would- if we were talking about getting rid of President Clinton, it’d be front page news all over the world,” Graham said.

“Well we’re going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who’s telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning,” he said.

  1. The FBI and DOJ is a disgrace and both should be disbanded immediately. They both have exceeded their usefulness by their criminal acts in the Trump matter. Time for a change and time for the guilty to pay the price. Step right up liberals, it is time to meet your maker.

  2. Mueller is just in this to run up a bill that takes from the taxpayers and fills his and others pockets and he never intended for this to stop and so we need to stop all payment going forward and get this over with.

    We The People are tired of this all and I’m sure President Trump and the administration are needing to put all their time and resources into the immigration problem.

  3. What has taken place in my goverment and agency’s within the last 3 to 4 years and all because a hand full of anti American socialist went rabid and crazy because crooked Hillary lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump and this upset their total plans for power and control of America and bringing about the deep state elegal tactics used in the Russia Russia colussion that has turned out to cost the hard working American tax payers millions and millions of dollars and to this day has not produced one speck of evidence that President Trump was involved in any way with the charges.if any thing there were more Democrzts involved than President Trumps staff.people such as ADAM SCHIFF CHUCK SCHUMER NANCY PELOSI HILLARY and Bill CLINTON and members of Robert Mullers investigation committee. What a farce and a hoax perpatraited on the American people.i pray that our new A.G.will see fit to rite these mistakes and punish the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law.jgb

  4. I hope he is serious and will follow this through. I remember he also promised to get to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal, and we all know where that did NOT go.

  5. Because anybody not siding with the American President is against the American President and a part of the swamp monster problem. The traitorous varmits will sceam as long as they can. They continue to import their army of criminal leaches and take away your constitutional gun rights. Be ready for the civil war that is already upon us!

  6. Glad to see Graham step up to the plate. There has been far too much garbage, phony news, accusations, and of course that dossier. It needs strict oversight and open sessions, then hopefully the final real truth will be told regardless of who gets caught.

  7. It’s about time these conspirators are investigated.

    Here’s yet another one Adam Schiff – his hands look awful dirty!!!! or am I the only one seeing this crap go down. .

  8. We should give welfare to the entire world; that would eliminate poverty forever. The cost you ask? Nothing – we just have to pay overtime to the printers.

  9. The usual routine will be they will say ” on the advice of counsel, if chose to exercise my 5th amendment rights and respectfully refuse to answer any questions”…or some such nonsense. But as usual, they’ll be a whole batch of lying Democrats on the committee who will bend over backwards to say ” nothing to see here”, and a couple more swamp creatures will skate, having done everything they could to protect crooked Hillary and Lying Obama, the Ruse of the Clinton Foundation,….because far too many of the politicians we used to count on have their hands deep in their pockets and have been bought and paid for…NOTHING will happen except spending and giving more money to $500 an hour lawyers from Tax payer funds….

  10. Wonder how many times we will hear: I don’t remember/I don’t recall!!!!!

    This is the dems way of escaping any perjury trap! Too bad the Republicans and their base haven’t learned to

    use the same damn trick!

  11. Good for Lindsey Graham. I think everyone in the FBI should be investigated. Many of them were most likely corrupt especially in the Obama years and probably the Clinton years also.

  12. Listen to Brennan! He needs to be investigated, that guy has said some pretty crazy shit himself! These ass holes are guilty of a lot of bad shit! We need to investigate the mass shootings that the crooked FBI investigated!

  13. ONE WOULD THINK THAT THE FIRST ORDER OF BUSINESS FOR THE NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL, WOULD BE TO INVESTIGATE THIS WHOLE MATTER WITH TRUMP AND THE DEEP STATE AND PUT PEOPLE IN PRISON!

  14. You GO Graham, we all deserve the best and the truth from all of the elected and appointed officials in the government. Ethics is the back ground of the USA, I do not care if your opinion does not meet my opinion as long as it id the truth and not a lie, we can then meet in the middle like adults and do the decision for the good of the country and not our own biased narrow minded criteria. It does not have anything to do with Party but what is best for the country. God Bless America and MAGA and last but not least Respect the Office of the President and the man in the office, President Donald Trump, he has worked wonders for the financial aspects of this country, let him continue MAGA!!

  15. I’m not sure who will be the recipient of Lindsey Graham’s retaliation. I still think he’s a snake with a forked tongue just like No Name, HRC, BS / BHO and so many others on the left. I still think he’s a RINO and chameleon, just like No Name was when he showed his ultimate “thumbs down” on repealing ObamaCrap.
