Baish’s Opinion| Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who also chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, sat down with Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday evening to talk about the continued Spygate scandal.
The Gateway Pundit reports, “It is not clear that President Obama used his administration and all of the power of the US government to spy on candidate Trump and then his Transition Team during and after the 2016 election. Since Graham took over the Judiciary committee he has held NO HEARINGS to get to the bottom of thee spygate scandal! During the interview Lindsey Graham said Mueller is ‘well respected’ and his report ‘is the final word for me.’”
Graham stated, “The Mueller Report is the final word on Trump and all things Russia, not Nadler… Mueller is the final word for me. Everything the House is doing is politically motivated. And I think most Americans are ready to move on. To my Democratic colleagues in the House if you bring up impeachment after Mueller issued his report, based on the Mueller Report, then it’s going to blow up in your face. You’re hurting the country. You’re unfair to the president and he’s going to get reelected.”
It has been reported that House Republicans are extremely unhappy with the Senate Judiciary Chairman’s “showboating” since he took the chairman role from Senator Grassley.

During the segment, Graham also spoke about the idea of impeachment.
The Republican Senator feels that the movement for Trump’s impeachment from Congressional Democrats, will only mean his re-election.
“To my Democratic colleagues in the House, if you bring impeachment after [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller issued his report … then it’s going to blow up in your face,” Graham explained to Pirro.
“You’re being unfair to the president and he’s going to get re-elected,” he continued.
When asked about escalating tensions with Iran, Graham praised Trump for pulling out of the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal and for applying sanctions against the country.
He urged the president to stand tough and not let Iran flex its muscle over the Strait of Hormuz, an international shipping gateway between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman. The waterway separates Iran and the United Arab Emirates and is 21 miles across at its narrowest point.
The strait is critical to the oil industry, with it being used to ship more than 22 million barrels of oil and products per day in the first half of 2018.
“To President Trump, do not let them take over the Strait of Hormuz,” Graham said. “Keep the pressure on and if they continue to do this, sink their navy like Ronald Reagan did back in the ’80s.”
