MSNBC is in hot water: they recently cut Senator Lindsey Graham’s audio feed during an interview when he began talking about the Clinton campaign. Graham (R-SC) is known for not supporting President Trump; but clearly, MSNBC wasn’t getting the commentary they expected out of him.
In addition to remaining fairly indifferent to Donald Trump Jr.’s recent meeting in Russia, Graham spoke of Clinton’s campaign. While MSNBC cut Graham’s audio before he could even finish his sentence, it appears he was trying to say Clinton’s campaign also had meetings with foreign countries.
When asked about Trump Jr.’s meeting, Graham initially commented, “Okay, so anytime you’re in a campaign and you get offered from a foreign government to help your campaign, the answer is no.” Graham said while he doesn’t know what Trump Jr. has to say on the matter, he believes the president’s son should have to testify. “He definitely has to testify; that e-mail was disturbing. But what is equally odd to me is that the person they met with knew absolutely nothing so I don’t know why they would pick somebody for him to meet with that didn’t have any information about the Clinton campaign…”
Graham went on to say, “It’s very frustrating for, every couple of weeks, to find out about a new meeting. I’m sure they met with a lot of people during the campaign. I’m sure the Clinton campaign met with…”
Suddenly, Graham’s audio feed went silent. The reporter he was speaking to then turned her attention to Rand Paul, asking him if he had “half a second” to chat. Oddly enough though, the camera did not cut away from Graham. Shortly afterward, MSNBC cut back to their studio anchors.
As sources point out, Hillary Clinton’s aides spoke with Ukrainian journalists and government officials in an attempt to collect some unsavory details about Trump and his campaign. The information they cooked up was then handed over to the DNC. How is this different from what Trump Jr. is being accused of?
While it’s well-known the media was silent about the antics of the Clinton-campaign circus during election season (and beyond), it’s pretty low to cut the audio when someone even dares to mention the Clinton name.
