Why Is Lindsey Graham, Once Again, Acting So Strangely?

"Almost out of nowhere, senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has introduced a bill, a proposed federal law at the national level that would outlaw abortion after 15 weeks. Now, Lindsey Graham appears to be kind of moving on to France. He seemed to be saying, well, we have the momentum with us. Supreme Court is overruled. Things are moving in our direction. Yes, the Supreme Court has sent the abortion decision back to the states, but why don't I up the ante by proposing a federal law? I mean, let's remember the federal law would apply nationwide. And Lindsey Graham didn't make a very interesting observation in introducing the bill. He said that he said that he's discovered that it is now routine for doctors who perform abortions to offer pain killing drugs to the fetus. And so Lindsey Graham in a very cunning way goes, wait a minute, you're offering pain killing drugs, doesn't that actually mean that at 15 weeks the unborn child feels pain? Whilst what you administer pain killing drugs. So what he is getting at is new research that, by the way, for many, many years, even decades, the left would say, like, oh, it's ridiculous. The unborn have no sense of real developed consciousness. They can feel anything. This idea that they feel pain is, I remember going back to Reagan Reagan at one point, do you remember this honey Reagan at one point suggested the fetus fields pain and there was a kind of roar of derision in the horror and ridicule at the time? Well, evidently, again, from the actions of the abortionist you see that it seems to be true.

"Again this whole thing they've brought it to a fever pitch Even if the former president had staining they say the appointment of a special master will be unnecessary and would interfere with the legitimate government interests You know what the legitimate government interests are They're in the middle of a investigation They can't be slowed down by a special master Why not Why not Now what about executive privilege claims They say a former president can not successfully assert executive privilege against the executive branch In its performance of executive functions Now that is probably correct But we don't have a defining 100% decision on that Certainly not from the U.S. Supreme Court So the Justice Department doesn't get to decide that issue They say the former president cites no case and the government is aware of none in which executive privilege has been successfully invoked to prohibit the sharing of documents within the executive branch And what's interesting about that is this statute that they keep talking about the presidential records act specifically talks about executive privilege by the sitting president what if he doesn't act that the former president has a right to go to court and there's a whole thing about it So if they're right why is there anything at all written about it in the presidential records act
