Just when it appeared that Lindsey Graham had come into his own as he did during his explosive coming out party during the acrimonious Brett Kavanaugh hearings, he reverts back to form.
Now that the midterms are over and his longtime BFF John McCain is worm food, the Palmetto State princess wasted little time in turning on President Trump like the snake that he’s always been.
Graham has joined the calls for Congress to enact protection against Deep State dirty cop Robert “Bob” Mueller who the anti-Trump forces have staked all of their hopes on.
Given the motley collection of socialists and freaks that the Democrats have assembled for the 2020 nomination, there is simply no way that any of them beats Trump legitimately but that’s what Mueller is for: to make sure that Trump doesn’t run for re-election.

Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham said on Tuesday he supported a bill that would protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from any politically motivated firings and would urge Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow a vote on it.
“I would certainly vote for it,” Graham told reporters of the bill, which he supported when it passed the Senate Judiciary in April.
“I don’t see any movement to get rid of Mueller. But it probably would be good to have this legislation in place just for the future,” he said.
McConnell told reporters in Kentucky last week he did not think legislation was necessary because he did not think Mueller was in danger.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said he also supported the bill but would not lobby McConnell to allow the measure to move forward.
“Every bill that comes out of my committee, I’d like to see a vote. But whether it comes up will be up to the leader and I’m not going to lobby the leader,” Grassley told reporters on Tuesday. “If it comes up, I’ll vote on it. And I think it ought to pass.”
Trump would be wise to note that Caesar was shanked in the Senate.
Et tu, Brute?
