Lindsey Graham Abandons Moore, Supports Dem. Menendez Who Was Investigated for Sex with Underage Girls

Posted: November 14, 2017 at 11:18 am   /   by

The entire uproar about alleged sexual misconduct of Judge Roy Moore has exposed just how deep the corruption of the Republican establishment really is. If the immediate condemnation of people like Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) were not enough proof of this—it wasn’t even 24 hours and he was calling for Moore to step aside—Senator Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) statements on the matter are completely revealing.

He said that if true, Moore should step aside, and “should be dealt with severely.”

Any person who believes that these allegations are not that bad, I don’t want ’em to be part of the Republican Party,” Graham said. “All I can say is, it’ll be up to the good people of Alabama to decide what weight to give this.

However, as many may not know, since the mainstream media is basically ignoring the story, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is currently under indictment for corruption charges. Even more, these charges stem from a Department of Justice investigation that was opened up into the very real possibility that Melendez had engaged in sexual intercourse with underage prostitutes!

Yet did any of that cause Graham to call for Menendez to step aside; to be dealt with severely; did he even call the allegations troubling? No. He actually appeared as a character witness on October 26, 2017 in the ongoing trial telling the judge that Menendez is “very honest” and “honorable.”

Lifezette news reported the story:

Menendez is on trial for corruption — the first sitting senator in a decade to be prosecuted on corruption charges. At the heart of the case is whether he accepted money and trips from his close friend, West Palm Beach ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, M.D., in exchange for using his position as a U.S. senator to help Melgen.

The trips include several flights on Melgen’s private plane to Melgen’s home country of the Dominican Republic, where it is alleged that Menendez had sex with prostitutes Melgen hired, some of whom where underage.

The allegations were first published in The Daily Caller, but the Department of Justice, in a court filing, later referred to “corroborating evidence” having been turned up to support the claims of underage prostitutes. The filing alleged that the prostitutes were hired to attend sex parties with Menendez and Melgen at Melgen’s villa, at a luxurious resort in the Dominican Republic called Casa de Campo.

In an email exchange posted on Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a Spanish-speaking female said she’d attended sex parties with Menendez and Melgen in the Dominican Republic and that Menendez “likes the youngest and newest girls.” A whistleblower also came forward to describe the parties.

In addition to referring to “corroborating evidence” of the claims, federal prosecutors also said that Menendez lied about the number of trips he’d taken with Melgen to the Dominican Republic.

“Specifically, he repeated several times that he had only flown on defendant Melgen’s private jet on three occasions. That representation is demonstrably false,” federal prosecutors wrote in the 2015 court filing.

What is often not mentioned in news stories about the Menendez corruption trial is that Dr. Melgen was convicted in Florida earlier this year of bilking Medicare out of a stunning $100 million, and that it is this money, stolen from U.S. taxpayers, that likely paid for the private plane, for Melgen’s property in the Dominican Republic, and for the underage prostitutes with whom Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez is alleged to have had sex.

Yet on October 26, Sen. Lindsey Graham went to New Jersey to defend Menendez…

“He’s someone you can go to as a Republican to see if you can find bipartisanship,” Graham had said. “In very difficult circumstances he always keeps his word — a handshake is all you need from Bob … He’s a very honest and trustworthy senator.”

When asked by reporters, on exiting the courthouse in Newark, why he’d come, he said it was “to let the court know that of all the people I’ve dealt with in the Senate, Bob is a very honest, honorable guy.”

Graham also told reporters that he regretted that the trial had been hard on Menendez.

The DOJ that brought the original charges against Melendez was the Obama DOJ, so arguments of political motivation regarding Menendez are wholly unfounded. It was the investigation into the sex crime charges against Melendez, which would constitute statutory rape, that brought about the uncovering of the alleged corruption charges, something that the jury in the trial still hasn’t come to a determination about. Yet, Graham defends this man, and quickly calls for the execution of Moore in the court of public opinion.

Moore’s accusations have no proof to them at all, and there is a whole host of reasons to doubt their veracity. Menendez’s accusations were so profoundly substantial that they required an investigation! It is clear with Graham’s behavior, there is no honor left in the Republican Party. The D.C. establishment is a big club, and Moore is not one of its members. This is all that matters to people like Graham.
