Rhett or Ashley, Part Infinity

Scarlett: Sir, you are no gentleman.
Rhett Butler: And you, Miss, are no lady.


Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey O. Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday requesting documents related to former vice president Joe Biden and his communications with Ukrainian officials, a step seen as a GOP effort to counter the House impeachment investigation of President Trump. Graham’s inquiry is focused on any calls Biden may have had with Petro Poroshenko, then the Ukrainian president, regarding the firing of the country’s top prosecutor, as well as any that referenced an investigation of Burisma, the Ukrainian natural-gas company that employed Biden’s son Biden.

Graham’s document request suggests he is seeking to legitimize Trump’s accusations that Biden, then vice president, put pressure on Ukraine to fire its lead prosecutor to protect his son, a claim without evidence that has been disputed by officials familiar with the investigation.

I guess Lindsey made up her mind: neither Rhett nor Ashley, it’s the Russian Usurper all the way.

    Let me link to a post I did over at TPM. https://forums.talkingpointsmemo.com/t/graham-launches-probe-to-further-bogus-biden-conspiracy-theory/162630/22?u=redhand

    To me, it’s clear as day that Putin has co-opted the entire GOP. He bought them, one way or another.

    I despise Mitch McConnell as a destroyer of American democracy, but on a personal level, Graham is far more despicable. He is more intellectually dishonest and craven than any other politician I have ever seen. Hell, more than just about any other human being I have seen.

    Why is this piece of shit in the US Senate? What does it say about the people of SC that he is their Senator?

    Graham is a pathetic, disingenuous piece of crap. I expect he’ll team up with equally evil Barr to present his false pretense campaign of “investigating” the Russia investigation and drumming up lots of interest as a distraction from impeachment proceedings. Their loyal Republicans will jump in whole hog to prove the unprovable.

      And this is where we grab the quote from the previous MPS post.

    No peace for this shit. I’m all for working within the system, but when the system is controlled by that transparently corrupt, it’s time to participate in some civil disobedience. There will be no change unless they fear the consequences of their corruption.
