Joy Reid Blasts Chuck Grassley And Lindsey Graham For Pushing A Russia Conspiracy They Knew Was A Lie

Published by

On MSNBC’s All In, guest host Joy Reid bluntly spoke the truth about how Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham intentionally pushed a Russia conspiracy theory that they knew was a lie.

Video:

Reid said, “The testimony released today blows those claims out of the water. And the two Republican senators blocking its release, Chuck Grassley, and Lindsey Graham knew that. They knew the narrative being pushed on Fox News and Capitol Hill was baloney. Instead of correcting that narrative, they chose to perpetuate it. Calling for a second special counsel to investigate so-called FBI bias. And referring the author of the dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele, for a criminal investigation. It’s all part of a concerted drive by the president’s allies to muddy the waters of the Russia investigation and discredit the dossier, which outlines alleged Russian collusion with the trump campaign in 2016.”

Reid is right. The real criminals in the Russia scandal are the Republicans who are enabling the cover-up of potential Trump campaign Russia related crimes. Graham and Grassley knew what the testimony was, but they chose to try to suppress the release of the transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony because it would expose the truth, and make it more difficult for Congressional Republicans like Grassley and Graham to sweep the Russia scandal under the rug.

Grassley and Graham lied to protect Trump. There is no other conclusion that can be reached.

Republicans are correct on one point. We do need a second special counsel to investigate the Republican Congressional cover-up for Donald Trump.
