Kremlin Expert Says She’s Convinced Lindsey Graham Is Being Blackmailed By Vladimir Putin

There was a time not so long ago when Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was one of the harshest critics of Donald Trump. When others were only too happy to carry water for the Trump administration, Graham called out the president, especially on the issue of Russia. As recently as July, right after Trump’s summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Graham tweeted out:

But during Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, Graham told Fox News this regarding the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller:

“These [FBI] investigations against Trump were corrupt to the core. They gave Clinton a pass, and we need a special counsel to look at all things at the Department of Justice and FBI when it came to the Trump investigation, particularly the counterintelligence investigation.”

What happened in such a short period of time? According to an expert on authoritarian regimes such as the one Putin runs in Russia, Graham may have changed his tune because he’s being blackmailed by the Kremlin.

Sarah Kendzior was a guest on MSNBC, and she posited this theory:

“There are a few things we should remember. The RNC was hacked; no one knows what happened to those emails. Lindsey Graham personally was hacked and nobody knows who has those emails. The RNC is complicit financially and politically and broadly in what the Trump campaign has done in terms of illicit interactions with Russia.”

Kendzior also noted that it all comes back to money:

“We have tracked all of those financial ties and there’s pretty good chance that either voluntarily or involuntarily Senator Graham has gotten mixed up in the situation and cannot be an objective observer. I find that sad because in the past he has asked for a nonpartisan look at what Trump has done. He stood up against corruption and he should go back to that.”

This could also explain why so many Republicans have been eager to defend Trump no matter what he does. They have financial ties to Russian entities or oligarchs that they have to try to protect for their own economic self-interest. Also, if they’ve taken laundered money from Russia, they would also be guilty of being an accessory to that crime, too.

It’s beginning to look like the vast majority of the Republican Party is in the pocket of the Russians. And that’s a very serious threat to this country’s national security.

Lindsay has no backbone and his secretive life has been compromised either by Trump, the Due or both. I hope he is exposed for who he really is. He is a threat to national security!

Why has this taken so long for anyone to notice this? Mitch McConnell And his wife are probably the leaders of the pack. He takes large amounts of money from the NRA and his wife has links to cocaine smuggling in China. Mitch is in the perfect one to stop congress from getting anything passed that will hurt Russia or benefit our security. The Russian mob threatens the rest of the congressmen and keeps them in line with money or personal harm. Even Jon McCain was approached by the Russians who gave him a big birthday party and Manafort tried to become his campaign manager.
Why did the group of republican only congressmen go to a meeting in Russia? Why is trump so chummy with Putin? Why does everyone in congress know Russians personally?
It seems pretty obvious to me.

Its painfully to see a democratic super power like US being destroyed by former KGB and dictator …putin.he will not stop until the US looks like former Soviet union Country

I’ve believed from the get go that whoever (Trump?) is holding those emails is using them to keep the GOP in line. It sure would explain why they seem to have lost their spines when it comes to Trump. The one thing I do know is when those emails come out, and they will, we are going to be shocked at the level of GOP treachery and villainy.

“For the record, I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia (or Russia, for that matter). Any suggestion that I have is just more FAKE NEWS (of which there is plenty)!”
No, Donnie, you’re playing with words. While you may not have financial interests in Russia, you have Russian financial interests in America.

Russians are known historically for disrupting democratic system of governance especially in USA. Putin avowed to avenge America for breakaway of USSR federation when Gorbachev was at the helm. Trump has been installed by Putin’s political strategy to destroy democracy in USA. Putin’s great achievement to date has been to create a significant rift between Democrats V/S Republicans. Trump is political naive, got entrapped and brainwashed by Putin’s strategy. Americans elite think tanks to research out what has attracted for Trump and GOP to becoming Putin’s suckers?

It’s obvious Lindsey is blackmailed. Right up until that “friendly” round of golf Graham had with Trump, he was vehemently against his candidacy & actually showed some integrity re: the election interference. It’s a shame that his legacy will be that of a craven coward who supported a wannabe dictator. In Trump’s words, “ Sad.”
