Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has come a long way. Graham was an cheerleader of absolute power for the deep state for a great many years, but is finally changing his tune after the biased witch hunt against President Donald Trump.
“Before the election, FBI officials tried to taint the election, tip it to [Hillary] Clinton’s favor. After the election, they’re trying to undermine the president,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said while appearing on “Fox News Sunday.”
“If Rosenstein is involved, he should be fired. If he is not involved, leave him alone,” Graham said. “There’s a bureaucratic coup going on at the Department of Justice and the FBI, and somebody needs to look at it.”
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was recently accused by the New York Times of deliberately sabotaging the Trump administration from within. He has denied those charges vehemently.
“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
Because the NY Slimes and Rat Rosenstein are both so incredibly untrustworthy, it is difficult to know who can be believed. Trump is treading very cautiously as he attempts to rid the subversive elements from his administration.
“There’s a lingering stench, and we’re going to get rid of that, too,”Trump said, in an ominous comment made during a Friday rally in Missouri.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoes his superior’s sentiments. The message is clear: If you are not 100 percent on board for Trump’s MAGA agenda, find another job.
“I’m not going to comment on that in any way other than to say this: I’ve been pretty clear since my beginning of service here in this administration, if you can’t be on the team, if you’re not supporting this mission, then maybe you ought to find something else to do,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I’ve told that to my senior colleagues, I’ve told it to junior folks at the CIA and the State Department. We need everyone who’s engaged in helping achieve President Trump’s mission,” he said. “And I hope that everyone in every agency: DOJ, FBI, State Department is on that mission.”
The sedition is likely to continue, as most Democrats operate without any regard to honor and principle. Trump will need to remain vigilant in order to drain the swamp, but with John McCain gone and moderate Republicans like Lindsey Graham coming to his defense, 45 is well-positioned to move against his enemies if the GOP can fend off the blue wave in November.
