Graham blocks resolution calling for Mueller report to be made public

Source: The Hill

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday blocked a resolution calling on special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be made public after it passed the House unanimously.

Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) asked for unanimous consent for the nonbinding resolution, which cleared the House 420-0, to be passed by the Senate before they leave town for a week-long recess.

"There is no good reason, no good reason that the special counsel's report should not be made public. The American people are overwhelmingly for the report being made public. They have a right to see it. No one should stand in the way of that," Schumer said from the Senate floor.

But Graham, a close ally of Trump's who chairs the Judiciary Committee, objected after Schumer refused to amend the House-passed resolution to include a provision calling on the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate DOJ misconduct in the handling of the Clinton email investigation and the Carter Page FISA applications.

Did you know Jimmy Carter helped fund that movie as governor? He created the Georgia Film Office, which helped make Georgia a popular location for the film industry.

Though not necessarily the best films - but oh well..

54. True.

The GOPee has been very good over the years at pigeon-holing Carter as "the gas line and hostage president."

But he certainly accomplished a lot in his relatively brief career in politics - not least of which was popping OPEC's oil bubble, and thus making the "Reagan" recovery possible.

20. What did Trump tell and or show Lindsey when they went golfing about 1.5 years ago?

My guess is a video of Graham being spanked as he was on all fours wearing a cowboy hat,
ass less chaps, as he yells out to the male whipper "give it to me boss lady."

Or then again i could be wrong.

33. I'm not here to judge.

Bottom line is that Vladimir/Russian mafia/Trump have something on him. Old mob trick you let somebody stay some place "safe" and you turn on the cameras. For years J. Edgar Hoover never went after the mob because they had pictures of him getting busy.

Btw Graham might have been yelling out "dirty cowboy" instead.

As for Hoover, he probably could have made a killing with photo-swaps ("OK, I'll give you 2 of **** for 3 ****", you know, like we used to trade baseball cards!

As for "Dear Lindsey" - yeah, somebody's got something, for sure!

47. I don't think it's blackmail. He's too enthusiastic. I said that about Trump, too.

Trump didn't act like he was being blackmailed. He was too happy and enthusiastic to do Putin's bidding. Too happy to see Putin.

Same thing w/Graham. He's too enthusiastic. He's been bribed with something he can't refuse. I wonder what it is. I'm guessing it happened on the golfing greens. Graham changed after one of the times he went golfing w/Trump.

"I like you, Lindsay. You're fair, you're fair. But I would like you to be more loyal to me. Can you do that?"

G: "I took an oath to uphold the Constitution."

T: "I know, I know. I'm not asking you not to do your job. But just be loyal to me, too."

G: (stares off in the distance, silent)

T: Come on. I'm a nice guy, right? I'm trying to get things done. You're happy with what we've worked together to get done, aren't you? I make deals. I'm the best at deal making. Do you need some help negotiating a deal for a vacation house in the Bahamas? Or an apartment in New York? I have connections all over. All over. You just let me know, and I'll make some calls. I'm just asking for loyalty while we try to get these wonderful things done and to help keep the witch hunters out of the way. I'm being persecuted so unfairly. And there are all these things interfering with all the things we both want to get done."

G: (We'll never know what G responds.)

And no doubt they donít really want to know the full story on Trumper FBI agents leaking to Giuliani. Thatís where the true misconduct lies.

I know heís not serious and this is just a sleazy tactic to keep people from seeing the Mueller report.

the handling of the Clinton email investigation and the Carter Page FISA applications.


they create bullshit and then keep running with it

the whole email event was made up with hillary needing a private server as all other SOCs would, but especially because she knew the cons would get her emails, pick through, and feed them to the radio gods to distort at will and repeat and repeat

America reminds me of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The new Republican party, the Trump party, is comprised of creatures who are not human, who have no compassion, who have no power of critical thinking, who are zombie like in their devotion to Trump.

Then again maybe it isn't about falling asleep, maybe it is about watching the M$M. That's why I spend so much time on DU, it is a safe haven for sane people.
