Despite President Donald Trump knowing about the Russians paying bounties for the killing of American soldiers in Afghanistan, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) went golfing with him anyway.
Trump has known about the bounties since at least March and has done nothing about them. Not a single condemnation or warning to Russia. In the time since then, however, Trump has invited Putin to the G-7 summit and withdrew troops from Germany.
One would think Graham would be more disturbed by the bounties and Trump’s lack of a response. But he merely called for Congress to look into the report without taking Trump to task for failing to protect the troops.
Imperative Congress get to the bottom of recent media reports that Russian GRU units in Afghanistan have offered to pay the Taliban to kill American soldiers with the goal of pushing America out of the region. https://t.co/dm4QWATzgg

Adding further insult to injury to our troops, Graham then had the gall to go golfing with Trump.
Dressed for golf, President Trump just left the White House with Sen. Lindsey Graham.

Seriously. Graham wore the uniform and his late friend John McCain nearly sacrificed his life wearing it. Yet Graham apparently has no problem with Trump doing nothing to condemn or stop Russia from putting a bounty on the heads of our men and women who wear the same uniform.
Needless to say, Twitter was disgusted by Graham’s lapdog behavior and betrayal of our troops.
And how was the chief quisling dressed? It’s grotesque that after the Russia/Taliban story broke, Graham, who was a JAG, would be doing anything but calling out this egregious story.

We can only speculate how terrible the blackmail must be to support this level of betrayal.

This doesn’t count as an SFRC hearing on why the WH didn’t punish Putin for killing Americans.

Graham: “When I brought it up on the back nine, Trump was very forceful in his denial. I believe him. And I am extremely grateful to Putin for all his hard work in bringing me and the President closer together.”

the other two players in their foursome are almost certainly Russian spies reminding Trump and Lady G about the kompromat they have on them.
Treason on the links.

They have clearly got to make sure their stories (lies) match up on the Russia scandal………

Absolutely nothing screams tone deaf more loudly than wasting time and resources investigating Hunter Biden, ObamaGate and Hillary’s emails when a pandemic is exploding, our economy is in free fall and our President is lying about allowing Putin to put a bounty on our soldiers.

When the truth finally comes out about how deep Trump and Graham are in with the Russians, they should be locked in a hole so dark that they never see the light of day. Because their cowardice and treason resulted in the deaths of soldiers who will never get to see their families again.
