The topic of the day is whether or not President Trump’s tweet about the Roger Stone sentencing recommendation influenced William Barr or not.

In a bit of a surprise, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is usually a staunch Trump defender, ripped Trump for commenting on a current criminal matter.

Calling Out Trump

The mainstream media is already latching onto this as though there is some type of mutiny in the Republican party, but that is not the case.

This is, however, a strong rebuke by Graham considering the fight the Republicans just went through to keep him in office.

When Graham was asking about Trump tweeting about the Roger Stone case, he stated, “Tweeting about an ongoing criminal matter is not appropriate.”

Graham was also asked if he thought Trump has been informed about what is going on in the case, he tried to dial it down a bit, stating, “Nah, I think he read something on the internet.”

Put Yourself in His Shoes

Prior to that comment, Graham had actually been defending Trump.

Graham stated that he believed the President thinks everyone is going way overboard trying to remove him from office.

He then added,  “I mean, just put yourself in his shoes.

“I told him I said, ‘I can understand how you feel that way, but the system did work.’ Mr. Mueller did his job. He found no collusion.

“Mr. Horowitz did his job. We will see what happens in the election.”

What’s All the Fuss?

All of this is going on simply because Trump expressed some concern about the sentencing recommendation made against Roger Stone for nine years.

That recommendation was eventually pulled back and resubmitted by Barr, but Barr maintains his recommendation was not influenced at all by President Trump’s comments.

The general belief right now is and has been that if Dems can’t get Trump, they will go after everyone associated with him.

This has yet again been proven to be true by the call for an investigation into Barr by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Barr being called to testify before his House Committee next month.

    • Graham pulled his usual little calculated comment like he did when he said he didn’t know why Mueller didn’t indict Pres. Trump for obstruction. He knew there was no reason to do that.

  1. Ole Lindsay is as unpredictable as the weather. He’s a true follower of John McCain who was also untrustworthy on many occasions. With friends like Lindsay Graham, you do not have to look for an enemy, he’s right there in the Senate, ready to “hep” you any way he can, eh.

  2. And how many comments and tweets were made by dems regarding any on going investigations into Pres Trump and the impeachment. Once again, dems get away with everything and flout it while condemning Pres Trump for the slightest hint of anything they can spin into wrong doing! STOP PLACATING THESE DEM AHOLES AND START MAKING ARRESTS!!! If you have anything to say about our pres STFU!!

  3. Trump above all is an American citizen with the right to express his horror of an inappropriate conviction. William Barr is an independent AG, unlike Obama’s ”wing man”. Democrats think all members of the Trump DOJ are like the Obama DOJ.

  4. President Trump has every right to tweet. Even Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch said as much. Enough with the lambasting of this president. Dang…the swamp is much worse than any of us ever imagined.

  5. I never trusted Lindsey Graham, when it came to defending the President. He’s pretty much a two faced opportunist, not to mention, a good friend of John McCain, also a rat.

  6. GRAHAM IS LIKE HORSE BUNS ALL OVER THE ROAD! THEY ROLL EVERY WHERE WHEN THE HIT THE GROUND! JUST ANOTHER PHONY ” DO’ER ” AND I DONT SEE ANY ACTION ON HIS SENATE JUSTICE COMMITTE YET! WIRDS, WIRDS ONLY LIKE FARTS IN THE WIND!

  7. Trump thinks he is a Autocratic ruler who can control everything in this USA, when the fact is that is Congress’s job not the Presidents and his commenting on the Justice system of this USA, just goes to show that he knows nothing of the norms of any Democratic Government, like the one he is trying to destroy.
