Lindsey Graham just sounded the alarm bell and actually called what is happening out by name. A bureaucratic coup – strong language for a sitting Senator.
But it gets worse, much worse. As reported by The Hill:
The South Carolina senator made the comments while speaking on “Fox News Sunday” after host Chris Wallace asked if Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should be fired for allegedly trying to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from the White House.
“He shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein’s lying; he said he didn’t do the things alleged,” Graham said. Rosenstein strongly denied the recent New York Times report.
“But there’s a bureaucratic coup against President Trump being discovered here,” Graham added, saying people in the FBI tried to “taint the [2016 presidential] election” and tip it in Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s favor.
“I don’t know what Rosenstein did, but I know what [Andrew McCabe] or [Peter Strzok] and [Lisa Page] did,” Graham said, alluding to former FBI officials.
Many conservatives have zeroed in on text messages exchanged between Page and Strzok during the 2016 election as evidence of bias against Trump inside the agency.
“They tried to destroy this president,” Graham said.
