Lindsey Graham Lied 19 Times In 12 Minutes At Barr Hearing

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, and Trump golf buddy, Sen. Lindsey Graham lied 19 times in 12 minutes to protect the president.

Some of Graham’s lies included, “What did we learn from this after all this time and all this money, Mr. Mueller and his team concluded there was no collusion. I didn’t know. Like many of you here, on the Republican side, we all agreed that Mr. Mueller should be allowed to do his job without interference. I draw with some colleagues on the other side to introduce legislation to protect the special counsel could only be removed for cause. He was never removed. He was allowed to do his job. So, no collusion. No coordination. No conspiracy between the trump campaign and the Russian government regarding the 2016 election. As to obstruction of justice, Mr. Mueller left it to Mr. Barr to decide after two years and all of this time he said, Mr. Barr, you decide. Mr. Barr did.”

Philippe Reines tweeted:

The hearing has been so full of lies and misinformation from the Republican majority on the committee that MSNBC has had to break into their coverage and provide fact checks. Barr showed up at the Senate hearing because he knew that the Republicans on the committee would have his back and allow him to lie. Republicans control the majority of the hearing time, and it is obvious that they would rather change the subject to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the old GOP standard Bleach Bit, or frankly, anything that isn’t a discussion of Barr’s handling of Mueller’s report.

Graham is lying to protect Trump, and his desperation is showing to the entire country.
