Sen Graham is furious at lame excuses given by the DOJ for going easy on terrorists, calling it “Loretta Lynch never left.” He also calls for 2 more special counsels for Clinton crimes…
Chris Wallace asks Senator Lindsey Graham about remarks he made regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions in which he said it’s as if Loretta Lynch had never left. Wallace asks, “Is this President and his administration, are they too soft on terror cases?”
Graham answers, “Well, I think the President’s got the right attitude about fighting the war on terror. I compliment him for taking the gloves off when it comes to our military. But clearly the Trump administration is doing exactly what the Obama administration did.”
Graham says, “It’s hard to catch a terrorist alive, Chris, and when you do you should try to gather intelligence.” Graham wanted him to be interrogated by the military and CIA prior to being provided with lawyers and Miranda Rights, which shuts off any chance of gaining intelligence. He points out that the policy is Obama’s and the people implementing it are Obama holdovers. He says, “I want to see that change.”
Graham describes the Trump administration as “woefully unprepared for this moment” and details the DOJ’s bizarre legal reasoning as making “me so mad I could not see straight.”
“They said the reason they didn’t declare the New York guy and enemy combatant,” says Graham, “even though he pledged allegiance to ISIL [ISIS], ISIL said he was one of their soldiers, he killed eight people in the name of radical Islam, showing support for ISIL, is because there’s no evidence of command and control. That is ridiculous.”
He goes on to explain just why it’s an insane distortion of the definition of “enemy combatant” in both the New York and Benghazi cases and reiterates that things are still being done the Obama way. He urges the DoD and DOJ to come up with new protocols to hold them as enemy combatants in the future.
On the issue of the criminal Hillary Clinton, Graham doesn’t agree with President Trump calling for Jeff Sessions and the FBI to do their jobs and investigate the corruption of the Democrats. For some reason Graham doesn’t think that it’s proper and repeats his comments about interrogating terrorists, as if it isn’t possible for the DOJ to have more than one active investigation at a time.
Graham says, “That’s just not the way we do it in America.” Does Graham subscribe to the Obama – Clinton – Bush separate justice system for political elites as well? He’s smart enough to understand that those are the very people with the most access to the power that corrupts and are the last ones that should be given deference and exemption from the same rules that apply to the rest of us.
Instead he’s calling for two special prosecutors, one for the Democrat – Fusion GPS case and one for the Uranium One scandal. He apparently thinks that it’s okay to let Clinton off on the espionage crimes. They’re so “last year.” He says, “When you call on the Attorney General to prosecute your former opponent, that is crossing the line.”
Actually, Senator, when the Attorney General refuses to do a job that he knew would be required of him and recuses himself from doing it, it is he that is crossing the line. He crosses the lines of cowardice, complicity and corruption. President Trump doesn’t want to fire Sessions, he wants to put the pressure on him and motivate the public to do so as well, to force him to do his job.
He has every right to be frustrated and to issue a warning that should not be necessary in the first place to his useless turncoat AG.
