These good ole southern boys like Lindsey Graham know how to raise the temperature in the room with his bigoted tainted rhetoric. Comparing Trump’s FBI treatment to Martin Luther King is astounding to say the least. Panty wearing Hoover was a real nut job with a dedicated force of agents at his beckon call.
The Senate held a hearing for IG Horowitz, and as expected the Republicans dug into their usual bag of obfuscations and misinformation. At one point, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took his efforts to defend the president he so obsequiously and unquestioningly serves to an absurd low. During a rant about the FBI’s investigation, he bemoaned the bureau’s “abuse of power” and said it was like the bad old days of the FBI when J. Edgar Hoover was alive and in control, operating as it pleased without any real regard for the law.

Graham then took his hyperbole a step further by saying that the investigation into the Trump team was akin to the now-infamous manner in which the FBI harassed and spied on Civil Rights hero Martin Luther King Jr.
“The old FBI! The FBI that had a chip on its shoulder and wanted to intimidate people and find out what was going on in your life and the law be damned. Martin Luther King and fill in the names…” Graham said, without an ounce of shame.
Again I must strongly advocate flipping the Senate in the 2020 election. Also we need to seriously consider term limits for senators. Lindsey feels as though his seat is untouchable. I pray the voters show him and his cohorts the door. They have had a long enough run at taking the country down for a fee.
