Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted Rep. Adam Schiff for calling Attorney General William Barr “dangerous” during an interview with Fox News on Tuesday.
Earlier in the day, the representative criticized AG Barr for his summary of Robert Mueller’s report, which found that President Trump’s 2016 campaign did not collude with Russia.
“I think he’s the second most dangerous man in the country,” Rep. Adam Schiff said at the time.
However, Sen. Lindsey Graham claimed that Rep. Adam Schiff isn’t trustworthy based on his past accusations of collusion.
“When Adam Schiff speaks you shouldn’t listen,” said Graham. “He’s the guy that saw a Russian behind every tree. Russia did interfere in our election, but Trump didn’t collude with the Russians but he told us he did, Mueller said no he didn’t. So he’s the chairman of the Oliver Stone caucus.”
As previously reported, some Democrats are still pushing for the President’s impeachment. Yet Sen. Graham said that was a sign that they are not willing to move on.
“The Democrats in the House have lost their mind when it comes to Trump,” Graham said. “The Mueller report is done, it’s over, no collusion between Trump and the Russians. But Adam Schiff will not stop until he destroys this presidency.”
Sen. Graham also pointed out that before the report’s release, William Barr was very respected due to his previous work in the intelligence community.
“Here’s what I think. There’s gonna be a backlash to that kind of thinking. Bill Barr is one of the finest men I’ve ever known, he was attorney general on Bush 41’s watch. He has some of the best credentials of anybody to ever hold the job. He’s a good man. He’s not the problem. This insane desire to destroy everything Trump is hurting the country.” He said.
The senator summed up issues that the Dems could be working on, claiming that the real danger was trying to create a false narrative.
“They won’t work with Trump on a border wall even though they supported it when Obama was president,” said Graham. “So I just disagree with Adam Schiff that Bill Barr is dangerous. What’s dangerous is to accuse the president of a crime he didn’t commit.”
