Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was among the many loudest Republican voices in Congress screaming in regards to the assault on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya again in 2012. However he apparently has no downside with President Donald Trump’s choice to disregard intelligence about Russian bounties on American troopers in Afghanistan. The truth is, throughout a Thursday morning look on Fox & Mates, Graham really used the Benghazi assault to defend Trump and accuse his Democratic colleagues of hypocrisy.After co-host Brian Kilmeade quoted Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA), who accused Trump of committing “treason,” Graham fired again by asking: “The place had been all these Democrats when Benghazi was on fireplace, after they had been calling for assist from the consulate? The president of america Obama was briefed and went to mattress and by no means known as anyone for a day and a half whereas our folks had been being slaughtered in Benghazi. The place was the outrage then?!” Graham went on to say that in his view the “conflicting intelligence” on this case “doesn’t justify a nation stage battle with Russia.” He additionally defended Trump’s obvious lack of expertise in regards to the bounties by saying, “You don’t inform the president of america every little thing you’ll inform a second lieutenant!” Co-host Steve Doocy then gave Graham an help by including, “It ought to shock anyone that it’s an enormous story in The New York Instances. I imply, that’s what they do! They provide you with these massive tales to make Donald Trump look unhealthy.” “And it’s all B.S.,” Graham replied. “He wasn’t briefed. And there was no consensus.” Whereas Trump could not have been verbally briefing in regards to the bounties, the intelligence was reportedly in his Presidential Day by day Briefing, which he apparently declined to learn. Regardless of this, Graham stated Trump has an “unwavering need and dedication to defending our troops on the bottom.” Fox & Mates ended its interview with Graham by asking about his latest golf outing with Trump. “Who gained?” Doocy inquired.“I’ve by no means seen him play this nicely,” Graham stated with a straight face because the co-hosts giggled. “I imply, he’s obtained extra on his shoulders—I’m hoping, OK, he’s a bit distracted.
