Lindsey Graham Claims He’s Undermining Syria Withdrawal

Published

on

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham claimed that he was working to convince President Trump to back off of his plan to withdraw U.S military forces from Syria when speaking to the press outside of the White House today.

Graham is known for instinctual and consistent support for American military intervention in the Middle East and across the world, having been a firm supporter of disastrous American engagements in Iraq and Libya.

President Trump met with Graham today and seemed to have assuaged his concerns about an exit of military personnel from Syria. Graham claimed that what the President had told him “made him feel a lot better” about U.S involvement in the endless civil war, which Graham has reliably and predictably supported continuing in an even greater fashion.

The South Carolina Senator had expressed his displeasure when President Trump announced that he was bringing home American troops from Syria. An existential divide seems to exist between the proponents of Graham’s ‘invade the world, invite the world’ national security strategy and President Donald Trump’s core of American nationalist supporters, who support bringing American forces home from drawn-out and dangerous conflicts without a direct national security interest of the United States.

Hearing that Graham’s ultra-hawkish policy preferences traditionally associated with the Republican establishment are being catered doesn’t come as a good sign for non-interventionists and America First proponents.

Graham even went on to claim that Trump was “slowing down” Syria withdrawal, making it easier for career bureaucrats and globalists within government agencies to sabotage the widely popular initiative to bring American forces back home.

However, after the meeting, Graham spoke of the need for congressional Republicans to hold firm in a government funding bill to deliver on funding for a border wall.

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.

Stay tuned as this story develops.
