Lindsey Graham on Mike Pence calling for end of Mueller investigation: It's not his decision
Washington Examiner ^ | May 10, 2018 | Daniel Chaitin

Telling Russia special counsel Robert Mueller to wrap up his investigation is not up to Vice President Mike Pence, says Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

"That's not Vice President Pence's decision to make," Graham told CNN on Thursday. "I'm sure Mr. Mueller will wrap it up when it gets time to wrap it up."

Earlier in the day, Pence told NBC that a year into Mueller's inquiry, during which the administration has provided more than 1 million documents, it would be "in the interest of the country I think it’s time to wrap it up."

“And I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to conclusion," Pence added.

Mueller's team is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. President Trump has repeatedly assailed the probe as a "witch hunt."

"The only thing I can say is I haven't seen any evidence of collusion," said Graham, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is also looking into Russian interference. "Mr. Mueller has a good reputation. We'll see what his report says and where he goes, but in the system you can't have the people being investigated tell you to wrap it up."

Lindsey Graham can always be counted on to play the role of France.

How can Graham be on the wrong side of the argument so often? So many freaking Leftist Republicans.

Lindsey is just a bit out of sorts what with his hero fading and all.

Of course it isn’t, you silly Lindsey boy. But the Vice President has the same right to express his opinion as you or I do. Twit.

. . . which will be when Mr. Mueller and Mr. Rosenberg are disbarred for ethical violations in creating/filling the Special Counsel.

As if Pence does not know it.

You’re an ass, Graham. We all know that.

Who’s going to tell Lindsey what to say when McCain’s gone?

Linseed will be one of the first ones rounded up when they round up the coup participants. I’ll volunteer to serve on the firing squad.

It’s hard to know what motivates Graham.

And I probably don’t want to know for real.

Mueller will wrap up the investigation when Trump finishes out his 2 terms, or when Trump dies; whichever comes last.

Graham is apparently correct, it is dark state which will decide what is law and who is allowed to govern in DC.

RE:”How can Graham be on the wrong side of the argument so often? So many freaking Leftist Republicans.”

That is why I was deeply suspicious when he put up a repeal Obama-care bill in the Senate.

I suspected it was all a scam with him working a deal with McCain to kill it, the bill never gets passed and Lindsey fools the gullible into thinking that he is sometimes on our side.

Perhaps Linda needs a refresher course on the duties of the Executive branch vs. the Legislative branch.

I wish I had the opportunity to NOT vote for Lindsey Graham for any government office. I doubt he was on the Ohio primary ballot when he ran for president. What a joke that was.

There’s a well-worn path between the CNN’s door and Linda’s door. I bet Prog reporters don’t even have to call ahead.
