South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham admitted he urged President Trump to speak with journalist Bob Woodward for his new book, Rage.
H/T: Washington Examiner
Graham, a Republican who is up for reelection this year, explained to the Daily Beast that he encouraged Trump to talk to the Watergate sleuth because it would give him a chance to tell his side of the story, unlike with the last book Woodward wrote, 2018's Fear.
"The last book Woodward wrote, Trump said he didn't know that he had wanted to be interviewed. So I said, well, the guy is a well-known presidential author. And, you know, you got a chance to tell your side of the story. The president agreed, and there you go," Graham said.
Tucker Carlson is *pissed* about these Bob Woodward interviews.— Angry Staffer (@AngrierWHStaff) September 10, 2020
...pissed at Lindsey Graham, that is.
Bob Woodward had my quotes for many months. If he thought they were so bad or dangerous, why didn’t he immediately report them in an effort to save lives? Didn’t he have an obligation to do so? No, because he knew they were good and proper answers. Calm, no panic!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2020
For years Fake stories and investigations, then the phony Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, next Ukraine and the failed Impeachment, now the crummy Atlantic Magazine’s MADE UP STORY, and lastly, the political hit job by rapidly fading Bob Woodward and his boring book. It never ends!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2020
...The Bob Woodward book will be a FAKE, as always, just as many of the others have been. But, believe it or not, lately I’ve been getting lots of GREAT books!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2020
Hmmm...@LindseyGrahamSC told McCain to give the Steele Dossier to FBI. He told Trump to do the Woodward interview. He's clearly working with the Deep State.— Kurt Eichenwald (@kurteichenwald) September 10, 2020
Any Lindsey supporter has no choice: Write in someone else, or just dont vote in the Senate race.https://t.co/vPuNgTEPS5
