Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said after a closed-door Senate meeting on Thursday that the federal investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives now appears to be a criminal investigation.


What does this even mean?


Rosenstein gave the impression that recently-appointed special counsel Robert Mueller was treating the investigation as a criminal matter, Graham explained. Graham also said Trump should honor the Justice Department’s decision to appoint a special counsel to oversee the investigation.


I hope it means that witnesses will be sworn in and subject to law instead of just being interviewed. And a broader scope of witnesses to call.

this simply means Lindsey Graham/Robert Mueller are now public enemy #1 to the trumpoholics.

i.e. "Graham is a secret liberal", " Mueller is a secret agent for the Dems" , " 'they' never liked Graham anyway" oh and 'Obama', just for good measure.

I automatically assumed the special prosecutor was designated to investigate a criminal matter - as in someone has breached the law and Constitution and done something illegal, prosecutable, punishable?

What other type of investigation would take up airwaves and internet searches 24/7 and leave certain journalists frothing and dribbling from their mouths?

With Lieberman quite possibly heading the FBI soon. Good times!!

@the OP.

Based on your quotes I was about to call BS. However:

“It was a counterintelligence investigation before now. It seems to me now to be considered a criminal investigation,” he said after a meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.


Not sure I trust play dough face, but if that's where the facts lead........

You forgot the "But HILLARY!!" dismissal/deflection, too. See post a few above mine ^^

"Mueller is a secret agent for the Dems"


Mueller is more than a secret agent, he was the top dog in the FBI, who helped covered up many of the 911 crimes.

Mueller is no different than "Henry Kissinger", who the Bush administration wanted to be head of the 9/11 Commission.

You see where this is going.

Can't be all that "closed door" if o'l Lindsey spillled the beans...to the propaganda minister/ministers after the fact. If you heard about it? Chances are, it is fake news or propaganda. You/we "hear" only what's "allowed". Kinda like "freedom". It's only what you're told it is..nothing more, nothing less.

Facts arent deflections. Trumped up charges (see what I did there?) are...Hillary is the only other person that woulf held this position...and she was guilty before she even ran.

Investigate, determine guilt or innocence, then fry their asses or not. Standard process in the US, no bones about it. Readies TV infomercial voice
BUT WAIT!! This is 'Murica, where you can buy your way out of damn near anything if you're a connected or rich enough person with sway. Guess what those two dips#s have for their aces up sleeves?

Why does Trump get all the special attention?

Benghazi, 4 Dead Americans: No special prosecutor
IRS Targeting of Conservatives: No special prosecutor
Fast & Furious, 1 dead American: No special prosecutor
$400 Billion in Cash & Gold to Iran in the middle of the night: No special prosecutor
Trading Terrorist Generals for Bergdahl, who was determined to be a traitor and convert to Islam: No special prosecutor
Hillary Clinton and staff hiding a server in her basement then deleting emails & destroying devices after having received a subpoena for said emails & devices: No special prosecutor
Democrats just want justice???

Wasn't the Iran one us giving them back their rightful property plus interest incurred decades after seizing it? I would call that righting a major Idiot-level wrong, not criminal.

More like common sense. I don't believe we ever had the right to seize their money in the first place back then, so the interest is appropriate & fair compensation after holding it hostage for so long.
