Sen. Lindsey Graham delivered a strong warning Thursday to Donald Trump that if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller, it “could be the beginning of the end” of Trump’s presidency.

The South Carolina Republican said any attempt to remove Mueller would cross a serious “red line,” Politico reports. 

“Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency unless Mueller did something wrong,” Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Graham, as reported today by Tickle the Wire, introduced a bi-partisan bill to prevent the termination of special counsel without judiciary review.

“We need a check and balance here,” Graham said.

Lawmakers Call on Trump to Release Alleged Recordings with Comey

By Steve Neavling

President Trump’s suggestion that he may have been recording conversations between himself and former FBI Director James Comey have prompted several senators to call on the president to disclose any related documentation.

Three days after Trump abruptly fired Comey on Tuesday, the president tweeted that “Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, recommended that Trump end all social media posts about the ongoing investigation involving his campaign and the Russians and encouraged the president present what recordings he has.

If there are any tapes of this conversation, they need to be turned over,” Graham said.

White House Press Sean Spicer decline to provide any insight into the existence of a tape of Trump and Comey.

Sen. Graham Blames Information Sharing on Failure to Detect Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham sharply criticized law enforcement’s information-sharing system during the probe into the deadly Boston Marathon bombings, Business Insider reports.

Graham said the system should have picked up on the suspicious activity of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Graham also urged federal agencies to “up our game.”

“When one of these guys goes into the system and they leave the country, we need to make sure where they’re going and interview them,” Graham said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

“And when somebody in the database like this begins to openly interact with radical Islamist websites, an FBI agent should knock on his door and say, ‘You told us before that you wanted to be an Olympic boxer. You love this country. What the hell is going on here? We’re watching you.'”

The horse trading Washington is so famous for is in full swing.

Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday that if the White House agrees to try self-described 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a military tribunal he would press fellow Republicans to vote to shut down Guantanamo Bay.

The the issue has been a matter of intense discussion at the White House and at the Justice Department, but so far no decision has been made.

Graham also said on the CBS show a new legal system needs to be created to try dangerous detainees.

“We need a legal system that gives due process to the detainee but also understands they didn’t rob a liquor store,” he said.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Editorial: Criticism in Detroit Case “Entirely Unjustified”

PITTSBURGH — Criticism by some senators of Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to treat attempted airline bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as a prisoner to be handled according to American standards of justice is entirely unjustified.

When Mr. Abdulmutallab was arrested Dec. 25 he was questioned briefly and read the Miranda rights that cover anyone arrested on American soil. According to Mr. Holder, he made the decision to handle Mr. Abdumutallab in that fashion after consultation with the FBI. The Nigerian was clearly both an alleged criminal and a potential source of intelligence.

The charge by South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and others is that in dealing with Mr. Abdumutallab in that fashion — as opposed to labeling him an enemy combatant, turning him over to the military and the CIA, and likely grilling him with irregular methods such as waterboarding (as might have been his fate during the Bush administration) — the attorney general risked losing useful intelligence that could possibly have been extracted from the Nigerian.
