Graham to Introduce Legislation to Make it Hard for Trump to Fire Mueller

Graham to Introduce Legislation to Make it Hard for Trump to Fire MuellerSen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) sounded off on President Trump’s behavior toward his attorney general on Capitol Hill Thursday, telling him he is acting out of “weakness” by trying to intimidate Sessions to quit.

“If he wants to fire him, fire him,” the senator said, but don’t resort to bullying.

In particular, Graham was unnerved by the president's sending a series of tweets questioning Sessions's loyalty and fitness to serve.

"He's a good man who deserves better," Graham said.

Graham called Sessions to offer his support, telling him to "hang in there." If Trump does fire Sessions, there will be "hell to pay," because Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has indicated he will not hold any new confirmation hearings for the position.

The committee's agenda is set in stone.

Obamacare Repeal Fails Early in Senate'sHealthcare Debate 


The Senate rejected a simple repeal of Obamacare on Wednesday, still in the early stages of an unpredictable floor debate on health care amid significant doubts that Republicans can muster the 50 votes needed to pass any kind of bill.

GOP leaders are holding votes on a slew of different health proposals this week to see how close they can get to passing something. The amendment defeated 45-55 Wednesday was similar to the Affordable Care Act repeal that passed Congress in 2015 and was vetoed by then-President Barack Obama.

"It’s really the only piece of legislation" that can force Republicans and Democrats to sit down and work on a compromise, GOP Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, who backed the simple repeal, told reporters before the vote.

This week’s debate on amendments -- which will be punctuated with skirmishes over obscure rules and parliamentary challenges -- will culminate in an all-night “vote-a-rama” later this week that could feature dozens, or even hundreds, of amendment votes.

At the end of it, Republican leaders hope to be able to pass a health measure, even if it’s just a slimmed-down Obamacare repeal that only scraps a handful of the law’s most unpopular provisions.

Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican, said GOP leaders are exploring a scaled-back repeal plan that can pass and be sent to conference negotiations with the House, which has a broad bill. That could open doors to restoring Senate provisions that can’t pass this time, he said.

Google bows to Muslim pressure, changes search results to conceal criticism of Islam and jihad
