$800,000 Contribution From Ukrainian Billionaire Has Lindsey Graham In Hot Water
Finally, Lindsey Graham’s about-face from condemning Trump to defending Trump seems to be explained. Two things happened Graham took $800,000 from a Ukrainian Billionaire, Leonard ‘Len’ Blavatnik, in 2015-2016 election season who has close ties to Putin via Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska. If that name sounds familiar that’s because the Trump administration lifted sanctions on him so he could invest millions in Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky in an aluminum plant. The circle keeps getting tighter and tighter.
If I had one guess: Putin orchestrated this, then hacked Graham’s emails and now is blackmailing Graham to protect Putin’s lead horse in the race: Donald J. Trump. In Cold War Terms this is the closest Russia has ever gotten to subverting The United States. Yuge problem to our democracy!
