Senator Lindsey Graham Should Resign Over Anti-Russia Push

Lindsay Graham wants to punish Russia for more Russian Sanctions based on false allegations Russia was behind Trump winning the election.

He has called for “the year of kicking Russia in the ass” as he threatened Moscow with a new round of sanctions over a #FAKENEWS story that Moscow was involved in US election interference.

Graham has not addressed the fact that voters the world over are tired of useless parasitic career politicians like himself. Russia is a fictitious enemy, the only thing Putin has done that is an affront to the west is fought ISIS in a real fashion, opposed Obama and Clinton funding Terrorism and worked hard for the best interests of his country.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday, the Republican senator referred to accusations that have been proven false by both Republicans and Democrats: that Kremlin-backed hackers conspired to rig the 2016 US presidential election at the expense of Hillary Clinton, adding that a bipartisan lynch mob is due to get underway.

“If you’re worried that we’re not going to look long and hard at what Russia did in our election because Trump won and the Republicans are in charge, you don’t need to worry about that,” the South Carolina lawmaker told delegates from around the world. “I promise everybody in this room that Congress is going to take a long, hard look at what Russia did to undermine our elections, so they’ll be better prepared when they come your way.”

Graham said he believed Moscow would try to influence the upcoming elections in Europe. “To our German friends, you’re next. To our friends in France, they’re coming after you. And to my friend Mr. Lavrov, I hope you finally suffer some consequences for what you and your regime have been doing to democracies, and 2017 is going to be the year of kicking Russia in the ass in Congress,” he told delegates at the Bayerischer Hof Hotel on Sunday.

Moscow has consistently denied all allegations of any state-backed hacking while cybersecurity and intelligence experts have said there is no evidence for these claims.

“If I was the Chinese and I wanted to make it look like the Russians did it, I would use Russian language within the code, I would use Russian techniques of breaking into the organization,” cybersecurity pioneer John McAfee told RT in December, adding that “there simply is no way to assign a source for any attack.”
