Watch As Graham Completely Lies At Yates Hearing To Cover Up Trump/Russia
On Monday Sally Yates testified about the Michael Flynn/Russia scandal. In his opening statement, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham decided to say something false about the investigation.
The joint report Graham was talking about states:
“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.
“We further assess Putin, and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.”
The report not once mentions a Trump collision with Russia, which makes Graham’s statements false.
This seems to be an attempt by Republicans to try to use this hearing as a cleanup operation to distance Trump from Russia.
