Something very strange has happened to Lindsey Graham. He embarrassingly sucks up to a 砺ery stable genius and now he betrays his country by openly trying to obstruct an investigation on an attack on our democracy. What痴 going on here? The more we look at Graham the more we find some strange, albeit still somewhat distant, connections with the Mueller investigation into the Trump/Russia connection.

jamess explores the transition Graham has undergone over the past year, including the Russian hack of Graham痴 emails.

But now we池e learning of the connection between Lindsey Graham痴 2016 campaign manager and Paul Manafort, who痴 spider web of connections between Russia and the Russian mafia has drawn an indictment from the Mueller investigation.

Here痴 a tweet thread that talks about the Ferry/Graham relationship. Keep in mind, none of this is incriminating and the MSM has not jumped on this, but it is a rather strange connection to Graham.



Up until recently Lindsey Graham was one of Trump's harshest critics and one of Mueller's biggest supporters. Something has happened over the last 2 months or so which has suddenly cause @LindseyGrahamSC to make an abrupt turn. That something I believe may be related to.. (2)

his 2016 campaign manager named Christian Ferry @christianwferry. Ferry was and still is very close to Graham. In 2008 Ferry became the Deputy Campaign Manager for the McCain-Palin campaign. In order to take that position he apparently left his previous job... (3)

as a strategic consultant at Davis Manafort, Inc. Yes that's right, he was an influential part of Paul Manafort's firm. Not only that but he also worked with Manafort, Gates, and several Russians on a major deal in Ukraine (4)

1. Oh

2. K&R

As you noted, this is a year old--how on earth did this link to Manafort disappear from the radar for so long, and how has this not been front and center in the past few days, with all the stupid shite Graham has been saying about his new BFF and the shutdown? It should have been brought up again with his weird public display during the Kavanaugh hearings, too.

Thanks for posting this. It's important.

5. christian ferry? is that a real name?

it sure looks like lindseys getting blackmailed

this goes back to mccain when manafort was campaign cochair and limbaugh withheld his support for mccain. that was a disaster in the making with the GOP convention coming up and manafort known as the guy who would get the convention votes in line.

so palin was announced minutes before the limbaugh show started days before the convention and as i listened limbaugh used the occasion to start his show with an endorsement of mccain

without it the convention would have been a disaster

limbaugh and mccain hated each other

did manafort force mccain to pick palin, who was being courted by russian oil and gas oligarchs?

and was limbaugh working for russia then?
