President Trump has received historic amounts of opposition.
From Democrats, the media, and even his own party.
But what one “Republican” Senator recently stated could be a new low.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has been one of the biggest anti-Trump advocates in the Republican Party since the start of his campaign.
From urging Republicans to un-endorse Trump, to voting against Trump, he has consistently opposed the President.
His latest comments, while not surprising, are infuriating to any supporter of President Trump.
As reported by Politico:
“Sen. Lindsey Graham sent a sharp warning Thursday to President Donald Trump that it “could be the beginning of the end” of his presidency if he makes moves to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
The South Carolina Republican, who in the late 1990s served as a House impeachment manager against President Bill Clinton, said Trump would be crossing a serious “red line” by ordering the ouster of the lead investigator who is probing his campaign’s ties to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.”
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is leading the fruitless Russia investigation against the Trump administration.
Trump has come under fire after speculation that he is considering making moves to fire Mueller.
The President has made his displeasure with the Mueller-led Russia investigation known, once calling it a “witch hunt.”
Despite the rumors of Trump firing Mueller being entirely based on speculation, that didn’t stop Sen. Lindsey Graham from stating:
“Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency unless Mueller did something wrong.”
Sen. Graham didn’t just stop with those comments, he also made it clear that he is working with Democrat Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) to introduce a bill limiting President Trump’s authority to fire Mueller.
That’s right, “Republican” Senator Lindsey Graham is working with Democrats to attack the President.
As reported by The Hill:
“Sen. Lindsey Graham (R–S.C.) said Thursday that he is writing a bill that will limit President Trump’s ability to fire the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling.
Graham said his bill, which he will introduce next week, will block a president from firing the special counsel without a federal judge’s approval if that counsel is investigating the president or his administration, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The South Carolina Republican has a Democratic cowriter on the legislation in Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), who said on MSNBC earlier this week that he had “concerns” about Trump attempting to oust Robert Mueller.”
This is just another case of Sen. Graham working to undermine the President.
He has let his own personal vendetta get in the way of the President doing his job.
While it is still uncertain whether Graham’s bill will go anywhere, it is troubling to see Republicans and Democrat lawmakers work together to go after President Trump.
What do you think? Should President Trump fire Mueller?
