You have to wonder if Trump is getting close to something explosive, because this threat from Lindsey Graham suggests the swamp rats are scared to death at the prospect of some of their key players losing their positions.
Blood is practically shooting from his eyes as he speaks to the press regarding the discourse and tweets from Trump about Sessions.
Watch this video, and see if you get the drift of the threats coming from Graham:
CNN has some more on the exchange.
“I’m 100% behind Jeff Sessions,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, told CNN’s Manu Raju Thursday morning on Capitol Hill. “If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay.”
… “This effort to basically marginalize and humiliate the attorney general is not going over well in the Senate,” Graham told CNN. “If you believe Jeff Sessions should be fired, use the power you have and accept the consequences.”
… “I’m going to try to come up with statutory language that would say, in the case of Bob Mueller and future special counsels, that if the attorney general fires that person who’s been empaneled to investigate the President or their team, then judges will have to look and see if whether or not the reasons stated meet the statutory definitions,” Graham told CNN.
There has been much speculation about whether or not Trump will fire Sessions. But maybe we should be speculating on why is there so much vitriol from others who are not directly connected to Sessions. After all, although they may have forged friendships from years of working in D.C. together, this kind of heated loyalty seems a little outside the boundaries of reason. Could it be they’re just circling the wagons around one of their own?
