House Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham put the final nail in the Mueller coffin this week and delivered a major blow to the Democrats.
During an interview Monday night on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” Graham made it clear that the Republican-controlled Senate is done with Robert Mueller, his report, and the Russia investigation.
When asked about House Democrats continuing to push for impeaching President Donald Trump, Graham said they were looking to “destroy” the Trump presidency with their continued effort to revive the Mueller report.
“There is nothing going on in the House about protecting the 2020 election, they are trying to nullify the 2016 election. Mueller has spoken, he found no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians after two years, 25 million dollars, 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents,” Graham said.
“He decided not to bring any charges regarding the obstruction of justice because there is no crime here. The bottom line is what the House is doing is politically motivated, trying to destroy the Trump presidency,” he added.
Graham was clear with host Martha MacCallum that the Senate is done with the Mueller report and plans to move on to other issues that actually matter.
“I can assure you that we are done with the Mueller investigation in the Senate. They can talk to John Dean until the cows come home, we are not doing anything in the Senate regarding the Mueller report,” Graham said.
Graham rounded out his comments by enthusiastically mentioning Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, the special counsel appointed by Barr, looking into the origins of the Russia investigation.
“Nobody from the FBI, no one ever told candidate Trump that ‘we think some people working for you may be working with the Russians.’ Why did they not tell Trump what they told the Democratic Party?” Graham said.
Barr has been busy lately trying to get to the bottom of the Russia hoax and how this all happened.
Barr appointed Durham to investigate how the Russia witch hunt began and whether the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016 was legal.
Back in April, Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
Barr said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.
The president has been completely vindicated after the two-year Russia witch hunt.
Barr and Mueller have made it clear that there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction.
But now the tables have turned — and Barr is honoring his pledge to investigate those who started the Russia witch hunt.
