Fox News host Tucker Carlson eviscerated South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham for his failure to hold the FBI accountable for leaking the details of their raid on Roger Stone in January, the one where the FBI used dozens of heavily armed agents and even an amphibious unit to arrest Stone on non-violent process crimes.
In January, Graham fired off a strongly worded letter to the FBI demanding to know who in the bureau had tipped of CNN. He then bragged about it on Twitter and subsequently appeared on Carlson’s show to let the FBI that they “better respond” to his letter.
Almost a year later, and after Roger Stone has already been railroaded by an Obama appointed judge and all Democrat DC jury into a conviction on all 7 counts, Graham has finally confirmed to Tucker Carlson what many of us had expected all along… that he did nothing and used the instance to virtue signal to his Republican base.
Carlson confirmed that staff for Senator Graham claimed that Graham had “at some point” earned a meeting with the Deputy Director of the FBI, who claimed that the bureau “wasn’t sure”, whether or not anyone had illegally leaked sealed indictments and court documents to CNN in order for them to prepare a Nazi’esque propaganda production that would capture Stone’s arrest in real-time.
The fact that Senator Graham willingly accepted such a vague and unresponsive response to his inquiry should remind those in the America First agenda that Graham is still the same neocon globalist Republican as he has always been. The death of his mentor John McCain may have freed him up to play pro-Trump and pro-MAGA from time to time, but that’s all it is… a performance meant to protect his flank with voters who he thinks are too stupid to remember his abysmal failures as a United States Senator.
Senator Graham is counting on all of us to remain fooled by his semi-frequent showboating in favor of President Trump. He is hoping that the same game that has worked for establishment politicians for decades will work for him again. It’s our job to remind the American people, in particular South Carolina residents that he talks-the-talk and rarely walks-the-walk. What happened to Roger Stone, from the Hitlerian raid to his sham conviction, will be one of the biggest litmus tests in the Republican primary in 2020.
If you didn’t stand up for Roger Stone, who REFUSED TO GIVE FALSE TESTIMONY to the FBI or Mueller investigation in order to avoid jail-time, are you really part of the America First movement that elected Donald Trump?
P.S. — Can someone who actually stands with President Trump and his strongest allies like Roger Stone primary Graham in 2020? It’d be best of all of us if we removed the “Ghost of John McCain” from D.C.
