Trump in Graham's cross hairs as Russia probe kicks off

Lindsey Graham lacks the resources and access that the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have to investigate Russias meddling in the presidential election.

I expect NOTHING but Party partisanship from these RW so called bi-partisan republiKKKan clowns. But I guess we have to accept the hand dealt us and work at getting that royal flush.

6. Adjusted link:

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/lindsey-graham-trump-russia-236043

Should end with the six-digits - 236043. NOT 236043Link - which gets you to a page that says no such link can be found.

8. Whitewash is the very appropriate term! Graham and Grumpy will toe party line in the end.
