Lindsey Graham just gave Trump what he wanted all along: An investigation into Biden

https://www.alternet.org/2019/11/lindsey-graham-just-gave-trump-what-he-wanted-all-along-an-investigation-into-biden/

Just as the House of Representatives is gathering a mountain of evidence implicating President Donald Trump in a scheme to bribe a foreign country into smearing former Vice President Joe Biden with a criminal investigation, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced Thursday that heíll do what Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky didnít.

He has launched an inquiry as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee of the Bidens, Ukraine, and the oil company Burisma.

In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Graham requested records his department has related to Biden, his son Hunter, contacts with Ukrainian officials, and Burisma, whose board Hunter Biden served on. Itís not clear what jurisdiction the Judiciary Committee has to look into these matters, and Graham cites no legislative purpose for the request. It will be interesting to see how compliant the Trump administration is with these demands, given that it has repeatedly obstructed Democrat-led probes and questioned the motivations behind similar asks.

But thereís no mystery about whatís going on here. Republicans are furious that Democrats are trying to hold Trump accountable for his Ukraine scheme, and theyíve been trying to use allegations that Biden was improperly involved in Ukraine as vice president to benefit his son, even though the evidence suggests the opposite and even though Republicans seemed uninterested in Bidenís conduct at the time.

Snip...

.................

I would love to know what Leningrad Lindsay is being blackmailed with.

2. If I believed in bad luck, curses, or anything of the sort, I'd wish it upon R voters in S Carolina

The asshole they keep voting for is immoral, cowardly, corrupt, and if I haven't mentioned it yet A GIANT ASSHOLE.

4. Lindsey may as well announce his "findings" tomorrow.

Everyone one knows it will be a pack of lies, so why the charade?

7. Leningrade Lindsey and a couple other Rethugs

have been wanting to do this to anyone associated with or to the Obama Administration. This is just part of the "you got one of ours and now we are going to get one of yours" Rethug campaign for decades.

5. Lyndsey probably only wants to announce a Biden investigation, not actually do one.

Sondland revealed during his testimony: "I never heard...anyone say that the investigations had to start or be completed. The only thing I heard from Mr. Giuliani...was that they had to be announced...President Trump...wanted the Ukrainians on-record publicly that they were going to do those investigations."

Trump probably threatened to release the video of Lyndsey having sex with an underage boy if he didn't at least announce an investigation into Joe Biden.

9. Let them do it! I'm positive if there were anything wrong with what Joe did, it would have

been uncovered long, long ago by the Pubs during Obama's administration. They spent 8 years hunting for dirt they could tarnish Obama & his cabinet members for doing.

I would be cautious though if I were one of the Pubs looking into this. With all the family members DT has intimately involved in THIS admin. the phrase "payback is a bitch" comes to mind! We don't even have to mention how many sons & daughters of congressmen & administration also are working inside this admin crowd. Could get quite sticky.

But to be able to scream "Biden, investigation" every fucking day is all they want: Mission Accomplished.

14. Yep, this is the same kind of poo flinging they did to Hillary.

Dirty him up with accusations. It won't matter that he's innocent. All anyone is going to hear is that he's under investigation. "Therefore, he MUST be guilty." The only thing that's more disgusting is that the morons who inhabit this country keep falling for this kind of bullshit over and over and over again.

16. Investigations are never a positive for any candidate historically no matter if innocent or guilty..

... Biden should get ahead of this and label it quick fast.

I'm disgusted to the utmost at republicans, all of them should go to jail for taking Russian money.

Itís nothing but dirty tricks with them, one stacked upon another. Itís exhausting and almost makes you want to give up. I think thatís the point.

20. One of the first things I thougt as well

Also, Barr likely told Trump he can't and won't open and investigation into the Bidens. Further, it is against DOJ policy to announce or comment on investigations. So if you think about it, Trump probably told Barr to hold a press conference and announce he is investigating "Burisma" and Barr told him he can't do it. So Trump then demands Lindsey make this announcement instead. Dollars to donuts, that's what happened.

19. Lindsey lacks imagination

As Trump would tell him, he should go massive and begin a Senate Judiciary investigation of every Democrat in the United States, including registered Democratic voters. It might take 200 years to get through them all, but in the end, they're sure to find dirt on SOMEBODY. Besides, it's not as if there's any real work involved in uncovering Democratic perfidy since Lindsey can just have his minions make it all up while complaining about the Even Deeper State that prevents him from moving ahead promptly.
