Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is known for criticizing the president, but this time he came to the President’s defense – and he really nailed it.
He warned Mueller that he is the one that’s going to be personally held responsible for any leaks that occur as a result of his investigation into Russian interference during the last year’s election.
Mueller has Impelled a grand jury to conduct his investigation. They should help him in determining if a given suspect should be even charged. Evidence will be presented to them, which has left a possible opening for more leaks of sensitive information.
This is what Graham stated in an interview with Fox News:
“If we start getting leaks coming out of the grand jury, Mueller’s the one that needs to be held accountable for that. It’s not fair to Trump. No matter a citizen or a president, no one should have the contents of a grand jury leaked out into the press selectively.”
Graham is sticking up for Trump and sending a strong signal to Mueller! He also criticized the huge number of leaks to the Washington Post of Trump’s calls to the president of Mexico and the prime minister of Australia, saying:
“This is the first time that I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve never before seen transcripts of the presidential phone calls in the front page of The Washington Post.
