One day after the Senate Judiciary Committee held its first hearing into the Russiagate coup attempt by deposing former Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, the panel’s chairman, Sen. Lindsey Graham, has announced that a vote on whether to issue additional subpoenas to others involved in the scandal will be postponed.
“We're going to do what this committee needs to do, and we're doing to fight it out and we're going to vote. And we're not going to be done today, so I don't see a resolution this day, if you need to go somewhere go,' said Graham. 'I think the best thing for us to do is [to] carry this over to next week so we can have a full discussion,' Graham said, according to The Hill.
“We'll get to [a] conclusion next week' on the vote, he added.
Prior to those comments, Graham had a back-and-forth with sometimes-Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who called “bulls**t” on the way committee members “grandstand” for the cameras in the hearing room.
'Can we get a sense of how long we're going to be here? …. With all due respect, I don't think anybody in private ever disagrees with me when I say that it's bulls— the way people grandstand for cameras in here. The reality is if we didn't have cameras in this room, the discussion would be different,' Sasse said, then adding: '90 percent of our committees are about people trolling for soundbites.'
“I don't think they're trolling for soundbites, I think they're genuinely upset with what I'm doing,” Graham said in response.
Breitbart News noted that last month Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said he would conduct an investigation into the origins of the Russiagate probe and have a report ready ahead of the November election. Timing in D.C. is everything, you see.
That is, if the country makes it until November. Given all the rioting — and now the inter-party bickering — one wonders.
As for Sasse, he should sit down and participate or give his seat to another Republican who will. Because Americans have been waiting for Graham to do something, anything resembling a probe into ‘Russiagate’ since he took over the committee after the 2018 elections.
