Now that the long-awaited Mueller report has come to a surprisingly exonerating and anticlimactic conclusion, it is time for all South Carolinians to call upon our lion and senator Lindsey Graham to fully investigate the doings and wrongdoings of Bill and Hillary Clinton, specifically their role manipulating FISA warrants and other secret actions in 2016 against our once-candidate and thankfully duly elected President Donald J. Trump.

Graham has stated he intends to fully uncover whether there were any wrongdoing by Obama administration officials, whilst investigating more deeply Bill and Hillary Clinton’s highly questionable tactics during their 2016 Democrat campaign for the White House.

Our experienced Sen. Graham is right to question our FBI’s actions – and nonactions – during its “wet noodle” investigation of Hillary Clinton’s many nefarious actions during her tenure as secretary of state, especially her blatant Fusion GPS dossier funding and dissemination during her failed 2016 campaign.

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has found that the Trump campaign and his family did not conspire with the Russians whatsoever, it’s time for those who engaged in premeditated wrongdoing vs. Trump to pay back every cost and justice due the American people.

Although Graham believes there is much more to what happened when former Attorney General Loretta Lynch secretly met with former President Clinton inside that private plane on a Phoenix tarmac (during an open federal investigation into his wife’s wrongdoings?), all that matters is what the people of South Carolina call upon Graham’s office to do now about the “Clinton-First” Clintons, and what their operatives have unfairly done and will continue to relentlessly do to our sitting America-First president so unjustly.

SC senators should push for release of Mueller’s report

Yesterday, I received an email from “Kevin McCarthy – Republican Leader.” In it he claims that the case is closed – no collusion. He says that Democrats’ behavior has been “irresponsible.” Then he concludes that “For the good of the country, it is time we moved on.” This completely partisan missive was sent to me via House Communications email.

I believe most Americans are sick of these mean-spirited, divisive attacks. Our tax dollars are paying for what amounts to a 2020 campaign run from Congress and the White House; this is undemocratic and morally repugnant.

Lindsey Graham, who once spoke the truth about President Trump, has sold out for a standing invitation to Mara Lago. His hateful rhetoric mirrors that of Trump.

Attorney General Barr has kept his promise to protect the president by keeping most of the report hidden, and Mitch McConnell refuses to allow the Senate to vote to demand that the full report be made public. While McCarthy is saying that “for the good of the country, it is time we moved on,” Donald Trump is seeking revenge on Democrats in Congress. We just can’t tolerate this hypocrisy and the threat to the citizens of our democracy that it represents.

Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott must insist that Attorney General Barr release the full Mueller report immediately rather than be implicated in the obstruction of justice that has been going on for far too long.

Wealthy Panthers team shouldn’t need a tax break

Could I be the only person who objects to the granting of tax breaks to the Carolina Panthers. A team reported to be worth $2.3 billion with profits last year of about $330 million. Why do they need a tax break?
