Lindsey Graham: Plot Underway to Shut Down Probe of Origins of Russia Collusion Charges

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.

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.

  1. I am coming to believe that all this disinformation campaign (because that is what it is), is being orchestrated, written, and driven by the infamous, bipartisan Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of December 2016. In 2013, Congress repealed the propaganda ban, allowing use of falsehoods in government-designed programming for American audiences.

    Keith, I’d love to hear your thoughts on that. From the original announcement about “The Global Engagement Center”:
    “The Center will be led by the State Department, but with the active senior level participation of the Department of Defense, USAID, the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the Intelligence Community, and other relevant agencies.

    “The Center will develop, integrate, and synchronize whole-of-government initiatives to expose and counter foreign disinformation operations by U.S. enemies and proactively advance fact-based narratives that support U.S. allies and interests.

    “The legislation establishes a fund to help train local journalists and provide grants and contracts to NGOs, civil society organizations, think tanks, private sector companies, media organizations, and other experts outside the U.S. government with experience in identifying and analyzing the latest trends in foreign government disinformation techniques.”
