Skip to comments.Graham blasts Democratic colleague Hirono: You have ‘slandered’ Barr
Posted on 05/01/2019 12:21:10 PM PDT by jazusamo
In the most fiery exchange so far during Attorney General William P. Barrs Senate Judiciary testimony, Sen. Lindsey Graham interrupted questioning to accuse Sen. Mazie Hirono of slandering the Justice Departments top official.
You have slandered this man from top to to bottom, Mr. Graham said. You want more of this line of questioning, you are not going to get it.
The moment came while Ms. Hirono, Hawaii Democrat, was grilling Mr. Barr with questions about allegations that President Trump sought to thwart special counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe.
But she also called Mr. Barr a liar and accused him of trying to conceal Mr. Trumps alleged misdeeds.
Being attorney general of the Untied States is a sacred trust, she said. You have betrayed that trust. America deserves better. You should resign.

Glad that Chairman Graham ripped her after her continuous insults to AG Barr but felt Graham should have stopped her during it.
Slandering Barr was the purpose of this disgusting abuse of Senate power. Another example for the American public...except the RAT voters.
She was childish at best. I thought we were back in the USSR. Go back to Hawaii and stop taking up valuable space.
That Hawaiian bitch is retarded. At least Tulsi Gabbard is intelligent and a military officer.
These Senators are not fit for office. They are poisoned with hatred and anger.
Hirono was also on point for the Blasey-Ford rape hoax.
There is no limit to the depth of democrat sleaze. None.
We need to institute the new green deal immediately with regard to air planes going to or from Hawaii.
As a side note - this shows me how wise Obama’s handlers were in choosing his AGs. Obama wasn’t smart enough to do it himself.
We can all see clearly now that the DOJ/FBI are the highly political brain and nerve center of the executive branch. They have broad and immense powers of investigation, surveillance, and prosecution, which they have used very unevenly. Their cliches of being “quiet professionals” and dispassionate bureaucrats are revealed as complete bullshit.
The AG must be an absolute ally of the President.
Its clear whoever selected Holder and Lynch for Obama knew very well how the deep state operated. They even made sure both were black, for extra loyalty. Not only did they protect Obama,, he could use them as an political weapon.
Who did Trump have at this most sensitive position upon entering office? Jeff Sessions. It nearly killed his Presidency.
Hirono in English = Ignorant Cow ?
There are a number of Congress critters who are not fit for office. We must set a standard that excludes these vicious partisans from office.
time to look at her finances. It’s hard to believe that the people of Hawaii support such a venomous, grandstanding, toxic personality. And if they do, that’s just one less place to spend US tourist dollars.
She’s the one who should resign. Between Kavanaugh and now this, she’s a total embarrassment.
So we learn from Kamela Harris’ questioning that the same DOJ “career” ethics officers who advised Jeff Sessions he must recuse himself because he once shook hands with the Russian ambassador advised Rod Rosenstein that it was no problem for him to supervise the special counsel even though Rosey participated in the decision to fire Comey and was a witness to it.
I guess now that Rosey has detected the change in direction of the wind with Barr’s appointment as AG and has adjusted his sails accordingly, the Dems are now flip flopping back to the position that Rosey is a bad guy.
Everything were watching from the Democrats is in CYA mode because their coup to drive Trump from office failed, and now its stall for time until they can find something, anything to get the president.

I have been listening to the homosexual Shep Smith, and I say that because he insists that we all know that he is a homosexual, and an astonished that grown men who are supposed to be the final authority of what is right will sincerely, as it were, look the nation right in the eyes and tell them that what a person thinks is the same as the act.
I am sure Trump wanted to get rid of Mueller. Trump had the authority to get rid of Mueller. And the fools repeat strategy sessions with his aides as the same thing as the act.
Since when have thoughts been a crime, other than in Oceania and Stalinist Russia.
