My, my, what a difference a year makes.  In December of 2016, Senator Graham told the world, he was hacked by Russia too.  Say What!?

Back then Senator Graham was leading the bipartisan charge, to ‘make Russia pay for their interference in our democracy’ …

Graham: Russians hacked my campaign email account

by Daniella Diaz, CNN — Dec 14, 2016

Washington (CNN) Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday his campaign email account was hacked by Russians — adding that the US needs to work together to stop this from happening.

I do believe the Russians hacked into the (Democratic National Committee). I do believe they hacked into (John) Podesta’s email account. They hacked into my campaign account,” he told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.” “I do believe that all the information released publicly hurt Clinton and didn’t hurt Trump. I don’t think the outcome of the election is in doubt. What we should do is not turn on each other but work as one people to push back on Russia.”

“They’re trying to destabilize democracy all over the world. Not just here,” he said about the Russians. “Here’s what we should do. We should tell the Russians that on no uncertain terms, you interfere in our elections, we don’t care why, we’re going to hit you and hit you hard, we’re going to introduce sanctions, it’ll to be bipartisan.”

Damn right, it’s an American issueyou tell it Senator!

That was then, this is now.  Senator Graham is now encouraging and enabling such Russian Interference in our Democracy (that he spoke out against so strongly just one year ago), with his latest actions and statements.

Hmmm, I wonder what happened on or around December 8, 2017 — that changed Lindsey Graham’s “this is an American Issue” mind …

I guess it’s the whistle-blowers now, that are a ‘danger to Trump’s America’ … 

Putin had nothing to do with hacking Senator Graham’s emails … Nothing at All.  

America no longer needs to “work together to stop this from happening” … America needs to learn to look the other way.  If Graham’s actions to smear the DOJ and the Steele Dossier now, are to be taken at face value:

[Sen. Graham to Fox’s Brian Kilmeade:  ]


I’m very disturbed about what the Department of Justice did with this dossier, and we need a special counsel to look into that, because that’s not in Mueller’s charter. And what I saw, and what I’ve gathered in the last couple of days, bothers me a lot, and I’d like somebody outside DOJ to look into how this dossier was handled and what they did with it.

So much for ‘taking a stand’ against the Constitution’s enemies, Senator.  Folding like a cheap lawn chair, over trumped-up charges (and/or Kompromat), is the exact opposite of Taking a Stand.


Those hacked emails they’re just “harmless pranks” now, right Senator?
