MSNBC Fact Checks Lindsey Graham In Real Time After Lying Tirade During William Barr Testimony

Even as he publicly considers dodging Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, Donald Trump’s disgraced Attorney General William Barr was willing to show up and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, where he has the support of Trump ally Lindsey Graham. Sure enough, Graham wasted no time turning the whole thing into a freak show this morning.

Graham kicked off his opening statement by appearing to complain about the air conditioning, and that turned out to be the least strange thing he said. He then went on to falsely claim that Robert Mueller found “no collusion” – such a blatant lie that MSNBC felt compelled to mute him and quickly jump in to explain that Graham was lying. That’s almost unprecedented for a committee chairman’s opening statement, yet it set the tenor for the day.

He then made the stunning admission that he hasn’t even read the entire Mueller report, and that alone should have caused a trap door to open up underneath him.

Then, in a bizarre move, Graham decided to bring up Donald Trump’s favorite conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s emails and former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s text messages. At one point Graham read aloud the Strzok quote “Donald Trump is a fucking idiot” for no good reason, and his profanity was broadcast uncensored on live national television. Graham then apologized to any children who were watching.

Here’s the moment MSNBC called out Graham’s lie in real time:

After Lindsey Graham was finished with his profane, lying, and bizarre meltdown in front of the cameras, Democratic ranking member Dianne Feinstein used her opening remarks to state the facts about the Mueller report, and Robert Mueller’s letter exposing William Barr’s lies about the Mueller report.
