Decrying Russian disinformation, Lindsey Graham cites alleged Russian disinformation - 2020-09-30
With barely a month to go before the 2020 presidential election, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee spent Wednesday attacking Democrats' 2016 nominee using alleged Russian disinformation. The GOP senators did so even as they blasted former FBI Director James Comey—who was testifying before the panel—for what they claimed was the bureau's possible use of Russian disinformation.
In other words, Republicans spent a five-hour hearing Wednesday haranguing the FBI for advancing possible Russian disinformation, while busily doing the same thing themselves.
This might seem hypocritical, but it's consistent with an overt bid by the committee's chair, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and other GOP senators to aid President Trump's efforts to discredit the federal investigation into the Trump-Russia scandal.
