TOO LITTLE TOO LATE

Internet Shreds ‘Sycophant’ Lindsey Graham for Enabling Trump After He Threatens Resolution Against Syria Pullout

Published

“This is genocide.”

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham may have grown a short, temporary spine. Monday morning he threatened President Donald Trump with a “bipartisan” Senate resolution denouncing the Commander-in-Chief’s impulsive overnight decision to pull U.S. troops out of Northern Syria, effectively paving the road for Turkey to commit genocide against the Kurds.

Senator Graham rarely opposes Trump, and while Monday’s remarks were welcomed by some, many have had it with his near-daily defense of the President. So now some are taking to social media and blaming Graham’s consistent support of Trump, accusing his enabling of the president for bringing us to this latest disturbing decision.

“I don’t know all the details regarding President Trump’s decision in northern Syria. In process of setting up phone call with Secretary Pompeo,” Graham tweeted at 8:16 AM. “If press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making.”

He continued:

Terrified of Impending Impeachment Inquiry Trump Tweets He Has Authorized Release of Ukraine Transcript

As the news explodes that Democrats are reportedly about to announce a formal impeachment inquiry and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at 5 PM will announce the path forward, President Donald Trump tweets he has authorized the release of the transcript of the infamous telephone call he had with the president of Ukraine.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” Trump, clearly desperate, tweeted.

“You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!” he added.

The Trump White House, including President Trump himself, has a history of falsifying or selectively editing official government documents, and not indicating they are edited, or redrawn, so there is no reason Americans should trust that any transcript the Trump administration releases would be complete or accurate.

It’s also important to remember that, as The New York Times reported last week, the whistleblower complaint details “multiple actions,” so the one telephone call is just the tip of the iceberg.
