Ms Lindsey Grahamnesty, D-Transgender, throws down the gauntlet. And, perhaps inadvertently, lets slip the mask.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham today warned that there would be “holy hell to pay” if President Donald Trump fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“This effort to basically marginalize and humiliate the attorney general is not going over well in the Senate,” Graham told reporters today. “I don’t think it’s going over well in the conservative world … If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay.”
He added, “Any effort to go after [special counsel Robert] Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency, unless Mueller did something wrong.”
So, wonder which of his rock-ribbed “conservative principles” Ms Grahamnesty is upholding by siding with his Democrat Socialist partners and sustaining the RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA! witch-hunt?
On the other hand, that take on things renders this statement sort of…um, puzzling:
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox News and CNN that the Senate Judiciary Committee learned from Bill Browder, the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital, that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier that contained false information about President Donald Trump, also worked for the Russians. He said:
“What we learned today is that the Russians were behind the organization that tried to get dirt on Trump. The dossier against Donald Trump was created by Fusion GPS and their organization and, guess what, the Russians were helping them. This man said the Russians were behind Fusion GPS.
We all know that the Russians hacked into the DNC and John Podesta’s email. And we now know that the Russian lawyer that met with Donald Trump, Jr., Manafort, and others was actually working for the Russians, too.
So they’re trying to play both sides against the middle and I hope the country wakes up to the threat Russia presents to us all.”
So: standard Mark I Mod 0 neocon saber-rattling, with a side order of NeverTrumpTard pissyness, maybe? Dunno, but for those of you who have been waiting for the whole RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA! subterfuge to start splashing back on the Democrat Socialists, well, here ya go:
Wait a minute, what was that?
On Monday night Imran Awan, the principal IT aide to former DNC honcho Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was arrested at Dulles Airport attempting to flee the country. “IT” means information technology, as in computers, as in hacking, as in what the Democrats insist happened to the election.
Mr Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, has already flown the coop. In March, she pulled their three kids out of school and skipped back to Lahore, with (according to the FBI) “numerous pieces of luggage” and over $12,000 in cash.
Monday’s airport arrest follows the seizure of broken hard drives from the garage of the Awans’ former home. The hard drives had been smashed with a hammer. Whether it was the same ceremonial DNC hammer used to smash Hillary’s Blackberries has not yet been determined.
What we have here, for the benefit of American reporters who may be unfamiliar with the concept, is an actual news story – an unusual event that’s happened in recent times. It thus stands in contrast to, say, speculative fancies about whether or not money-no-object special counsel Robert Mueller is expanding his “Russia investigation” to set the many Hillary donors on his payroll into investigating Trump’s sale of some property in Florida in 2008.
What connects the “fake news” and the real news is the DNC. The Russia “story” exists because the election wasn’t hacked but the DNC was. Wikileaks released the Democrats’ embarrassing emails to the world, although, helpfully, the US media mostly declined to report on them, and, in fact, CNN’s Chris Cuomo lectured America that it’s totally illegal for you mere citizens even to glance at these leaked emails. As it happens, the world’s most inevitable presidential victor somehow managed to lose the election, and casting around for a reason the Dems decided that blaming it on a stiff tired unlikeable legacy candidate with no message and a minimal campaign schedule was too implausible. So instead they decided to blame it on Russian “hacking”.
Are the “Russia investigation” and the Awan story comparable? Well, they’re both about hacking, and both about DNC computers. One of them has actual arrests, on-camera political interference, destroyed evidence, and a proven money trail from foreign politicians. The other has no arrests, and a meeting with a minor Russian lawyer arranged by an Azerbaijani pop star’s publicist.
And just like that, the fog begins to lift a bit. Both these scandals—the fake one and the real one—are likely to wind up biting the Democrat Socialists in the ass way harder than they ever will Trump. How severely Lindsey Grahamnesty will contort himself in the course of defending his Uniparty partners in DC business-as-usual will be quite interesting to see.
As for what Trump can and cannot do about Sessions according to Her Royal Highness Grahamnesty, he most certainly CAN fire Sessions any time he wants—and should. If the useless frauds in the Vichy GOPe want to bluster and screech and threaten Trump with refusal to hold confirmation hearings, let them…and let President Trump make a recess appointment of whomever he damned well pleases, with the understanding explicitly spelled out that his or her first order of business is to be the removal of Mueller and the immediate end of his partisan fishing expedition.
Then again, there’s another possibility here:
He hasn’t begun the investigation into leaks, which is a big deal and he’s recused himself from Russia. So today Sessions announces… Well, it’s said that he’s gonna announce a new investigation into all of the illegal, felonious leaking that is taking place. Sessions may be… I’ll tell you what this means. He may be about to open investigations into Democrats. Stick with me on this. Hillary Clinton, Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz — and, believe me, is there ever fertile ground to investigate Debbie “Blabbermouth” Schultz and the DNC and her IT staffer, Imran Awan of Virginia.
He was caught trying to flee the country at Dulles International Airport yesterday, last night. Fertile ground. So I’m sure Sessions’ investigation may also include him, Imran Awan. The WikiLeaks leaks. Podesta. Russia. But not from the angle that the Democrats are interested in. If this is announced, if Sessions announces this — when he does — it will follow a week minimum, maybe two weeks, of all of these Democrats defending the honor of Jeff Sessions.
Praising his integrity, talking about what a raw deal he’s been getting from Trump. But the point is, go back to the campaign, fast-forward to the transition and Sessions’ nomination to be attorney general, the confirmation hearings. “What a pig! What a racist! What an absolute joke! What a danger! This guy… Beauregard? Ha! We know what that means. The guy may as well own a plantation. He probably still has secret slaves. Beauregard? Who names their kid Beauregard?” They’re out there trying to impugn Sessions.
Now they’ve been defending him and setting him up as one of most integrity filled people of all, ’cause Trump’s going after him. He announces an investigation. Because they have spent all of these news cycles praising Sessions and defending Sessions from the evil Trump, now what do they do? Well, they’ve gotta double back. “You know, forget it, he doesn’t have any integrity. He doesn’t have any honesty. He’s not a great guy. He’s doing this investigation, he’s a sop, he’s a coward. Trump starts complaining, look what he does.”
Limbaugh goes on to discuss with a caller how Sessions is quietly chugging along on immigration:
RUSH: The thing is that Sessions’ real value to Trump in terms of his agenda is he is single-handedly moving Trump’s immigration agenda forward.
The Russia thing was not an agenda item, I mean, during the campaign. This whole Russia thing, there was nobody endorsing Trump because they knew the Democrats were gonna be — I mean, the true Trump agenda, the number one reason he got elected was immigration, illegal immigration, getting a handle on it, building a wall, stopping it, what that meant for the culture, what it meant for employment, what it meant for sanctity of the United States. And Jeff Sessions is leading that agenda item and doing so marvelously well. It makes no sense to get rid of him. And you’re right, there aren’t any leaks about it; it’s just happening.
Interesting, to say the least. It may seem a mite too complicated and convoluted, I admit. But I ain’t just real confident in assuming that the President isn’t smart enough to think of it or cunning enough to pull it off, either. We’ve seen them all rubbing their hands and chortling with glee, “Oh, we’ve REALLY got him now!” only to get handed their heads in the end too many times now for that.
In any event, as I’ve said so many times here over the years: to hell with Mrs. Lindsey Grahamnesty, D-Spineless. And in case anybody was wondering: no, I don’t give a shit whether he’s actually gay, of course. It just provides such a convenient ladle for basting him in delicious, sizzling-hot contumely, that’s all. Yeah, it’s obvious; yeah, it’s too easy. But it still makes me laugh. And considering all the damage he and his pal Juanny Mav (D-MayHeBurnInHell) have done to the country over the years, it’s pretty much laugh or cry at this point.
