Lindsey Graham responded to New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez’ allegations that the recently completed FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh was ‘bulls***’ by turning the comment back around on the Democrat Party.
Menendez, who is well aware of what a garbage investigation entails, having escaped his own corruption charges thanks to a hung jury last November, attacked the FBI’s investigation of the Kavanaugh assault accusations. Yes, the same investigation the Democrats demanded.
“If that’s an investigation, it’s a bulls*** investigation,” Menendez boldly declared.
The Democrat went on to run off a pair of talking point lies that he and his Democrat colleagues have been touting – One, that the White House directed the FBI investigation (President Trump actually told the FBI to interview “whoever they deem appropriate”), and two, that they didn’t interview corroborating witnesses (the witness list floated by lawyers for the accuser aren’t ‘witnesses’ at all, they’re friends she told about her story).

The New and Improved Lindsey Graham responded to Menendez’ comments with the fire and fury he’s been known for over the last few weeks.
Borrowing the Democrat’s own words, Graham said, “Let me tell it to my friend Bob, what y’all have done is bulls***.” Watch the video here!
“To my good friends, is this advise and consent?” he continued, referencing Democrat claims of a coverup. “Your view of the Senate’s role is to take a good man’s life and turn it upside down.”
“That’s not advise and consent, that’s despicable,” Graham said. “(This) might blow up in your face — I hope it does.”
Menendez, it should be noted, isn’t exactly a champion of women who have made sexual misconduct allegations in the past.
His corruption trial yielded accusations that he had sex with underage prostitutes. In fact, a filing from that case by prosecutors noted “specific, corroborated allegations that defendants Menendez and Melgen had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.”
Perhaps Menendez is due for another investigation himself.
And on a larger note, it is so good to see Graham give it back to such a seedy politician.
Whatever they’ve been putting in Lindsey’s Wheaties lately, they need to keep it up. This is the kind of backbone that’s been missing from the Republican Party during this whole wretched Democrat smear of an honorable future Justice on the Supreme Court.
In an exchange with a protester who demanded Kavanaugh take a polygraph test, Graham spun around and shot back “Why don’t we dunk him in water and see if he floats?!”

The leftist protester pretty much clammed up after Graham’s verbal beatdown.
Georgia Senator David Perdue has also stepped up to the plate, and urged his colleagues to essentially follow Graham’s lead telling Republican colleagues to “grow up” and start confronting liberal activists.
This determination to fight back against Democrat lies is a welcome shift in tactic for the Republican Party and it’s beginning to fire up the base just in time for the midterm elections.
The left’s smear campaign and attempts to obstruct at any cost will hurt them dearly in November. And that’s no bulls***.
