Time to Act: Trump Sends Clear Message to Graham

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paging Lindsey Graham. Paging Lindsey Graham… – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham talks a good game about getting tough with all the seditious impeachment cabal participants. As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham has been prancing all over the Fox News talk shows for more than a year now, promising to hold hearings in which he calls Deep State actors from James Comey to John Brennan to Peter Strzok and all points in between to testify.

More recently, Graham has shown up on the Sean Hannity Tick-Tock Hour and elsewhere proclaiming his intent to call all the bad actors in the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment scam to come and talk to his committee under oath and threat of imprisonment. From the fake whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella, to his partner Alexander Vindman, to Joe and Hunter Biden and even Adam Schiff and his staff, Senator Graham now promises to call them all and force them to answer for their mendacity and many acts of disloyalty to the country over the last six months.

Yet, despite of all his posturing and tough talk and more than a year in his chairmanship, Senator Graham has yet to convene a single hearing of his committee to take a look at anything having to do with the whole “Russia Collusion” hoax or the Ukraine hoax. Readers of Today’s Campaign Update long ago grew weary of Graham’s all-talk-and-no-action posturing, and it appears that President Donald Trump has also now arrived at the same point.

Early Monday morning, the President issued a re-tweet of a video of an appearance by his former White House Strategy Advisor, Steve Bannon, on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures” program with host Maria Bartiromo, addressing the re-tweet to @LindseyGraham:

 

 

For those who still like to read stuff, here is a transcript of the exchange between Bannon and Bartiromo:

Bannon: Lindsey Graham – and I have tremendous respect for him – he guaranteed at the Senate Judiciary Committee, we need to have the whistleblower, we need to have the #2 whistleblower, we need to have Adam Schiff as a fact witness, we need Hunter and Joe Biden…I think we need Brennan. We need all of them.

And here’s the other thing we ought to do: President Trump ought to declassify all these reports; he ought to go back to Rosenstein’s … the 40 subpoenas from the House under Devin Nunes forwarded to Rosenstein, he ought to get all of those, he ought to get all those subpoenas and all of those people ought to be called to witness.

This has… we need to have an apparatus that’s official to go about this. To protect the office of the presidency going forward. 

Bartiromo: That’s why I have been so adamant about this for 3 years. It wasn’t about President Trump; it was about fairness. It was about being a patriot.  Having the top leadership of the FBI and the CIA put their finger on the scale and try to take down candidate Trump and then President Trump. That’s why my audience wants accountability.

Bannon: The same thing happened in the ’50s and ’60s. That’s why we had the Church Commission, that looked into the activities of the FBI and the CIA during the ’50s and ’60s. This is why you had this whole new structure come up [at those agencies].

We need, this needs to be put on trial. It needs to be put on trial for the American people. President Trump is right: It is the crime of the century, and we can’t cover it up. 

And we don’t need to go to the Foreign Affairs…it’s not a Foreign Affairs issue. It should be Senate Judicary. Here’s the reason: Nancy Pelosi and these people are not gonna stop. The formal acquittal vote on Wednesday is just the curtain coming down on Act One. They’re gonna continue on. They’re gonna try to subpoena John Bolton in the House, they want to get his notes. And I point…

Bartiromo: I don’t think this is gonna end anytime soon.

Bannon: It’s not gonna end. And listen: This ties back to what’s happening in Iowa. There’s no heat in any of those candidates. There’s no personalities out there that can beat the President. There’s no…their policies are so radical so they can’t run on personalities, they don’t have the policies… they must destroy Trump.

Nancy Pelosi, from day one, understands that to get back the White House they must destroy Trump. And the way they’re gonna use it is to use these fake hearings. This is not gonna stop. They’re gonna subpoena more people, they’re gonna leak more information, and this is why…I don’t mind getting John Bolton as a witness. Let’s cross-examine him. Let’s get his notes and cross-examine him about that. Let’s get…I don’t mind Mick Mulvaney or OMB people…all the emails – let’s get it all up there.

[End]

So, here we see President Trump sending a clear and unambiguous message to Lindsey Graham his time for making excuses for 13 long months of utter inaction in defending the office of the presidency has now run out.

Your turn, Senator.

 

That is all.

    Graham will retire before he calls a single witness. Because he is dirty too,.

    1. phineas gage - February 3, 2020

      Correct, it’s just more of the Washington two-step to fool the rubes for a while longer. Trey Gowdy has been the champion of all hat-no cattle (this is my only Texas expression), but Graham is becoming a strong rival.

      I just tune him out. His whole job is to manage this for the Deep State, just like the drones on SSCI.

      We do need a thorough investigation, but it won’t be forthcoming from his committee, no matter how many times he whispers sweet nothings to Sir Tick-Tock.

    2. ItsJo - February 3, 2020

      I agree that Graham is “All TALK and NO GO”….he is waiting to “Run out the clock on his year being up for heading up that Committee.” I thought he “climbed out from Under McCain-The Trump Hater, but it appears that Graham is “STILL being held by the throat from McCain’s Grave.” Sad, but I am EXTREMELY ANGRY, at not only Graham, but others in the GOP, that have not ONLY betrayed we the GOP Voters, but the man we elected, as “D.C. IS A CESSPOOL OF CORRUPTION AND WE WANTED TRUMP TO DRAIN THAT SWAMP”

      It appears that there are MORE than Just Corrupt Democrats in the Deep State, but also among the Rino/Old Establishment element of the Republican Party, who also look out for their OWN PERSONAL WEALTH, than being in office to ‘do the people’s(ours) work. They ALL appear to forget that they ARE supposed to work for us, but most likely DO NOT.

      As we await those who must indeed ‘acquit POTUS Trump from yet “Another Hoax to try to remove him from office, because HE is the “Outsider, who threatens to ‘bring ALL Corruption in our gov’t into the spotlight, and those “on the take, and riding that gravy train”…would Rather have a ‘career politico from any party in the Whitehouse because they can ALL continue with ‘that gravy train they all seem to be riding’.

      To that Exact Point, I read today that “Susan Collins of Maine-has gotten an “UNEXPLAINED $150,000 put into her campaign FROM SOMEONE IN HAWAII, 5,000 MILES AWAY FROM MAINE.” The money was NOT by the “fake corp.name they used, but rather to only ONE person, a Jeniffer Lew-of which Hawaii has many as does America….I WOULD THINK THAT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, AS THERE WAS NO ADDRESS FOR THIS $`150,000 TO HER, NOR ANY OFFICERS OF THAT BOGUS CORP.NAME, SO PERHAPS SHE IS BEING “PAID TO VOTE AGAINST A SECOND TERM FOR POTUS, TRUMP-JUST AS SHE’S DONE BEFORE”…..Perhaps, Soros, or some Other billionaire is “Sending her Money FOR HER ANTI-TRUMP VOTE ON YET “ANOTHER FAKE IMPEACHMENT CHARGE AGAINST HIM-

      I ALSO WANT TO KNOW WHERE IS THE ‘CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY A.G. BARR AND ATTORNEY DURHAM? WHEN IN THE HELL IS THIS GOING TO COME TO FRUITION, OR ARE THEY TOO, “RUNNING OUT THE CLOCK AND GIVING THE ‘DEEP STATE PLOY, TO ‘WE THE VOTERS FOR TRUMP?’

      THEY APPEAR TO BE TAKING AS LONG AS THE FAKE MUELLER INVESTIGATION-WHO WAS ‘LOOKING FOR A CRIME TO CHARGE, WHEN THERE WASN’T ONE AGAINST TRUMP. THIS WHOLE THING WAS PROMPTED BY OBAMA AND HIS CORRUPT TEAM-INCLUDING ROB ROSENSTEIN WHO “QUICKLY ASSIGNED ROBERT MUELLER TO THE CASE, AFTER JEFF SESSIONS ‘RECUSED HIMSELF, NEEDLESSLY.” BUT AS MUELLER WAS “ONE OF THE 3 AMIGOS: COMEY,MEULLER & ROSENSTEIN…THIS TOO STINKS-AS ALL THESE PEOPLE APPEAR TO BE WORKING FOR THE DEEP STATE AND NOT THE TRUTH OR US!!!

  2. Jimmy MacAfee - February 3, 2020

    Choose:

    -Senate interviews witnesses, makes a big show, and no one gets prosecuted (or if they do, they go free, like Ollie North, who was NOT prosecuted for the right crimes – REX 84 treason.)
    -Barr and Durham prosecute, prosecute, prosecute, and people go to jail (or better.)

    I don’t trust Graham to hold a hearing; if he’s as lackluster in holding one as he is calling one, it’ll be a whitewash.

  3. Big Al in NC - February 3, 2020

    I admit to being swayed by Senator Graham’s “performance” as the Kavanaugh Hearings ground down. I really thought this is a guy that (given McCain’s passing) is finally standing up to the Left. Wrong, I guess. Disheartened? No. But left feeling disappointed. Whether or not Senator Graham does anything now is almost anti-climactic.

    It looks like it falls to AG Barr. Again, I was buoyed by Barr’s initial steam-roller presence. Now? Crickets. Sigh. President Trump (just so you could, Mr. Blackmon, read those words written by a fan…hahah) can’t keep carrying all of this by himself.

    A question to you and/or the other readers: Why can’t Jordan, Meadows, Ratcliffe and others pressure Graham on this? I haven’t read anything that implies there is ANY pressure mounted on Graham internally, although it’s possible. Or is he “too” powerful to pressure?

  4. Jimmy MacAfee - February 3, 2020

    I agree with Steve Bannon, except for the Senate trial. Declassification followed by prosecution is the main part where we are in agreement. The Senate has no real legal teeth, and is basically Harvey Weinstein-with-a-gavel. They can acquit, but they can’t prosecute.

    Things like Operation Mockingbird and other illegal programs haven’t really ended – the Church commission exposed a lot of stuff, but did little to prosecute those who deserved imprisonment. And the FBI continues some variation on PATCON and the CIA still has their muhadeen (and 9/11) and al Nusra Front and ISIS and MK ULTRA (not in the form of Sidney Gottlieb) and Operation Northwoods (a joint CIA/Pentagon effort that eventually became 9/11 as a result of the darkest of the dark operators.) Is Bernie just another a Deep State actor? He represents a faction in the Agency – the Brennan Group.

    Who do you think controls the Deep State? Not just a bunch of mindless bureaucrats (Frank Herbert did once write that “all bureaucracies eventually become aristocracies,” or something to that effect.)

    The only one who has actually been able to scratch the skin of these creeps is President Donald J. Trump. But he’s shown us one thing: they bleed, too.

  5. Gregg - February 3, 2020

    Senator Graham: Get off your A$$ and do something, or SHUT UP and QUIT appearing on FOX and resign you chairmanship to become the back-bencher that you really are. Or, really do the right thing, and retire if you are not up the challenge of supporting our president and rooting out and exposing this blatant and provable corruption.

    In other words: Schiff or get off the pot.

    If you don’t get some action moving soon, you will have proven yourself to have been McLame’s butt boy. If you still are, then you have been in the District of Corruption for entirely too long.

    Come On South Carolina! Primary and get rid of this all hat and no cattle fraud – THIS YEAR!

    1. ItsJo - February 3, 2020

      Gregg: Agree with your post 100%. I am Already SICK of these “gold brickers, who talk a lot as Graham and do NOTHING. If he Can’t bring himself to do what he claims he wants to, then HE SHOULD LEAVE ALL HIS DUTIES and RETIRE. Doesn’t this guy KNOW, we are Just as disgusted with the “Career Politicos of Our party, the GOP, as we are in TOTAL DISGUST OF THE CORRUPT DEMOCRAT PARTY?”

      Also wondering “Where the Hell is A.G. Barr and Attorney Durham…..is that ALSO, “A Train to NOWHERE”
      Get the Damn Results OUT, and DO IT NOW, as we the people DESERVE HONEST ANSWERS TO ALL THIS CORRUPTION THAT WE HAVE HAD TO ENDURE, and were it NOT for POTUS winning, we would have NEVER known, ‘JUST HOW CORRUPT D.C. REALLY IS”…….cut the Bullshyt, and bring out the indictments and put Obama and that Whole Deep State On Trail, otherwise, Barr & Durham are “Part of Them also”

  6. phineas gage - February 3, 2020

    O/T–really sad news about Rush.

    The Left is going to be despicable in their responses

  7. Harry Culver - February 3, 2020

    There will be no investigations at the behest of Lindsey Graham. He is dirty and any investigation will eventually lead back to him. I think the same is true of McConnell.

  8. ItsJo - February 3, 2020

    Harry: Good post- Perhaps “ALL OF THE CONGRESS IS CORRUPT, and it’s a LICENSE TO STEAL FOR ALL LIFETIME, CAREER POLITICOS”
