Lindsey Graham Declares (Hypocritical) War On The CIA FOR SPYING ON LAWMAKERS

What’s good for the gander is apparently NOT good for the goose …

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham – one of the leading defenders of the federal government’s domestic spy apparatus – went into full freakout mode this week upon discovering that he, too, was being spied on.

In response to reports that U.S. President Barack Obama’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) hacked into a computer network used by lawmakers to probe the agency’s enhanced interrogation techniques, Graham blew a gasket.

“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.”

Wait …. isn’t this the same guy who said he was “glad” the federal government was secretly tracking, stealing and storing your private phone calls, text messages, emails, internet search histories and online purchases?

Why yes … yes it is.

Ready to spot the difference?

First, here’s Graham responding to YOU being spied on …

Yeah …

Ordinarily, this is the point in a story when we rail indignantly at the rank hypocrisy of self-serving, special interest-fed career politicians like Graham who are nothing but whores for America’s military industrial complex.

Of course this hypocrisy is so abundantly clear it requires no railing …

At least not from us … Graham’s opponents in the June 10 Republican primary, however, obviously weren’t going to let this pitch sail by.

“This takes hypocrisy to a whole new level,” Graham opponent Nancy Mace wrote on her Facebook page. “Sen. Lindsey Graham needs to be as strong defending our rights as he is about defending his rights.”

it’s ok to spy on those “hobbits” and “knuckle draggers,” just not on us.

What kind of dirt could they have on him? Nothing that’s not already obvious to the whole world, I’d bet.

Great political add. Play Graham shrugging with indifference when OUR rights are violated by spy agencies but red-faced with anger when HIS rights are violated.

Then lets see some immediate action - have your buddy Boner in the House begin Articles of Impeachment. At a minimum - get the joint House and Senate Committed assembled immediately to investigate.

Otherwise - STFU and sit down in your political theatre seat

Lindsey’s gay boyfriend is Obama’s direct hear. The emperor has no cloth.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. Graham is a BS Artist. Supposed to be one of the Military friendly Senators yet outright refuses to look into Bengahzi. Now he’s mad because NSA is watching him and his corrupt Senators on both sides of the aisle. Send this fudge packer into the public by Nov.

Idiot senators were OK with allowing NSA carte blanche to spy on everyone but are now surprised to find out THEY are also on the collection targets list. LOL.

When you deal with thieves, don’t be shocked when they steal from you.

The dunderheads in the senate have no common sense.

Liberals and their kin, Rinos, only like laws that go after us.

Let a 3 letter Governmental agency go after them, their family or the punk thugs working for them, they go Ape.

DiFi is in bed with Lindsey in these cries of “Foul or is that Fowl?”
