Lindsey Graham Only Likes Govít Spying When Itís Not Used on Him

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is very upset about government surveillance. Yes, that Lindsey Graham. Wait, what?

Here’s the catch, because you knew there had to be one: He’s only upset about government surveillance techniques when they are allegedly utilized on his own staffers.

In response to accusations that the Central Intelligence Agency has snooped on Senate computers, Graham went bonkers, telling reporters on Tuesday that “Heads should roll, people should go to jail if it’s true.”

And in typical Lindsey Graham fashion, he found a new kind of war he can get down with: “If it is, the legislative branch should declare war on the CIA.”

“This is Richard Nixon stuff,” he added. “This is dangerous to the democracy.”

Graham’s comments come in addition to his Senate colleagues John McCain (R-AZ) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), both ardent defenders of current surveillance operations who somehow find it appalling the government would dare spy on them.

So… protection against overzealous surveillance operations? “Good enough for me, but not for thee,” these senators seem to suggest.

Lindsey Graham Only Likes Gov’t Spying When It’s Not Used on Him, just like his co-conspirator DiFi (RAT-CA)

“This is Richard Nixon stuff,” he added. “This is dangerous to the democracy.”

is this for real or is it satire? where's Lindsay Graham been for the last 5 years if he's so worried about dangers to our democracy?

Lady Lindsey writing campaign ads for Lee Bright ping.

GOP Sen. Graham says he’s ‘glad’ NSA is collecting phone records [on ordinary citizens of the USA]

But he's apoplectic when they do it to his good friend DiFi ... “Heads should roll, people should go to jail if it’s true,” Graham said. “If it is, the legislative branch should declare war on the CIA.”

Primary this leftist mcqueeg mini-me hypocrite! Go Lee Bright!
