South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has never been Donald Trump’s biggest fan. Now that there is a special prosecutor assigned to the Russia investigation, Senator Graham is being quite outspoken about what he thinks is going on, and how the investigation should be handled.
When speaking to the press on Thursday, Senator Graham had some news that Trump will absolutely hate: That what has gone on with Russiagate just might fall into the realm of the criminal. He said of the investigation, after being asked how the new special counsel, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, was going to proceed:
“The takeaway I have is that everything he said was that you need to treat this investigation as if it might be a criminal investigation. So I think the biggest legal change seems to be that Mr. Mueller is going to proceed forward with the idea of a criminal investigation versus a counterintelligence investigation.”
And there you have it. Lindsey Graham is a huge Russia hawk, and he will be on this like a dog with a bone now that there will be a real investigation taking place headed up by Mr. Mueller. By all accounts, Robert Mueller is beyond reproach and has bipartisan support. Trump better watch his back with this one. His days are numbered.
