The MSM and the Democrats don’t like it when the investigation gets turned on them.
Strangely, both Dems and the dutiful soldiers of the Fourth Estate could care less about whether the Obama administration sought unethically and even illegally to either overturn an election or discredit the incoming president.
So now, efforts by the Trump administration to solicit foreign help in this important probe are a scandal, another example of Trump using foreigners to advance his political goals.
Well, the ones who appear to have tried to illicitly destroy their political opponents may well reside in the Obama administration and the Deep State. And Americans need to know what happened.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Sen. Lindsey Graham says an effort is underway to “shut down” Attorney General William Barr’s inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation.
A report about President Trump urging the Australian prime minister to help Barr “discredit” special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is just the beginning, the South Carolina Republican said Monday.
“Here’s what bothers me tonight. This New York Times article about Barr talking to Australia is the beginning of an effort to shut down Barr’s investigation to find out how this whole thing started,” Graham told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Republicans have alleged that foreign intelligence agencies, such as those in Western Europe, may have played a role in eavesdropping on or otherwise monitoring Trump campaign associates in 2016.
“Barr should be talking to Australia. He should be talking to Italy. He should be talking to the U.K. to find out if their intelligence services worked with our intelligence services improperly to open up a counterintelligence investigation of Trump’s campaign. If he’s not doing that, he’s not doing his job,” Graham said.
