  • Lindsey Graham asks countries to cooperate with Barr

    Jam your tin foil hats on harder, Trump-haters, because every day more conspirators are being revealed.

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham on Wednesday asked several foreign leaders to continue to assist Attorney General William Barr with his investigation into the 2016 election.

    In a letter to the prime ministers of Australia, Italy and Britain, the South Carolina Republican requested their “continued cooperation with Attorney General Barr as the Department of Justice continues to investigate the origins and extent of foreign influence in the 2016 election.”

    Graham has thrown in with Barr-Guiliani-Trump-Zelensky-Morrison, time to go crazy!
    Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.

    Trying to undermine US security services for Russia's benefit. I am surprised that Conservatives are so eager to please Putin.

      They don't want to please Putin, they've just lost sight of reality, of integrity, of who they are, or at least who they were. There is a very high cost to pay for attaching yourself to a person like Trump. The conscience gets seered and sometimes become so invested in what has been sacrificed morally that to pull back, to admit it was wrong all along, seems more devastating than continuing down the path.

      Jeff Flake made just such a call to make a turn for the sake of conscience. It's just so obvious, yet so sad, what is happening here.

      I had a conversation with a YEC friend once who had just passed out some material he KNEW was false at our church. And in a weak moment, as we discussed the simple reality of the unsupportability of the position, he simply said (paraphrase) "yes, but I've done all these classes and spent so many years teaching this position that ..." and he just pretty much stopped there.

      If a person continuously pushes back their conscience and continues on ignoring obvious evil and/or lies for some 'greater' purpose, even becomes part of giving that evil and those lies a voice, it takes a real toll on who that person is.

            Sweety, I’m not the one pressing forth conspiracy theories, as fact. You guys are.

                      Yep, doesn't change the fact that the quip applies to you. You guys obviously don't function according to truth, facts or the rule of law. That's just not the republican way when it comes to governance.

                        Actually, it doesn't apply to me at all, unless you can actually show that I "can't handle the truth". You can't do that, so you'll just lob turds.

                        Is your little world so completely defunct that all you have is false accusations and outright lies? You are becoming the very image the Trump you hate so much.

                          D.J. Trump isn't fit for the office of President of the U.S. Is he a pathological liar, a crook, an immoral reprobate and an abuser of the powers given him? No, you say. You can't handle the truth!

                          No outright lies, you Trumpsters have made it perfectly clear, you just can't handle the truth, because you support the liar in chief.

                            Calm yourself, JimmyPoo, I've never defended Trump's propensity to bend the truth.

                              Yeah, that's the easy one, CP, can't very well defend that can you? You just defended every accussation against him.

                              No, just pointing out the facts which you can't handle.
