Russia, guns, aluminum, and Moscow Mitch

It's no wonder Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so very touchy about his new Moscow Mitch nickname. Between that aluminum mill in Kentucky Russian oligarchs are helping out with and the election boost to...

Former Justice Department official: ‘We have a Russian asset sitting in the Oval Office’

Lindsey Graham Intends To Put Obama Under Oath To Testify About Trump Russia

Lindsey Graham seems hell bent on destroying a once respectable legacy. The side kick to Maverick John McCain now is becoming a CT proselytizer, on a par with Rudy Giuliani. I hope that whatever he’s getting paid is worth it. Graham was on Sean Hannity’s show Wednesday night and he declared that he intended to find out, “what Obama knew, when he learned it, and who he learned it from.” MSN News: As part of his probe, Graham is prepared to call former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to testify. “I can’t imagine an investigation of the Republican nominee for president — a counterintelligence investigation of his campaign — was not approved at the highest level,” Graham said Wednesday night. “I cannot imagine it happening without somebody in the White House knowing about it.” The FBI’s probe into alleged connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government was dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane” and officially launched on July 31, 2016, but there are questions about whether the investigation started earlier than that and whether the White House was involved. When Hannity asked if that meant asking Obama questions under oath, Graham seemed open to the idea. “Absolutely,” Graham replied. Everything Trump touches dies, and it looks like the next legacy in ashes belongs to Lindsey Graham. Maybe he’s looking for a post-Senate career on Fox News, the pantheon of propaganda. A few years ago I would not have thought this possible. Then again, I never thought Rudy Giuliani or Alan Dershowitz would go down the path that they have either. Extraordinary.
