It was really weird to see Graham being one of the only republicans to have harsh words for Trump in the run up to 2016 and then a few months later he wouldn't stop defending him. Who knows if this is anything of substance though.

I hope they don't try to run with the gay rumor. Have some actual real dirt and not anything to do with his sexual orientation. Don't make that a political attack.

I love how there's always gotta be some teaser or whatever, just drop that shit, I don't need to see a fucking primer for your eventual "bomb".

I think people really overthink this. Graham went from being anti-Trump to being one of Trump's biggest suckups because GOP voters today are mostly Trump cultists. It's not some blackmail, he's just spineless.

Unless he's fucking little boys I don't think it will matter
Even THEN I doubt it would matter. Republicans are so far past the point of having even a shred of moral fiber that they'd happily jerk off a serial killer while said serial killer stabbed them in the chest as long as Trump said he was cool.

This would only make sense if it's not an attack on his sexuality but a discovery how others have used his sexuality (and his shame of his sexuality) as blackmail.

Just release it then. So cynical about this news marketing BS. If you do have something then the people deserve to know. They dont deserve to know after you generate enough eyeballs on your next project.

With that said, his flip was one of the most shocking, but it was just as attributable to polling/political calculations as blackmail.

Let's see it bud.

Didn't Lev Parnas already implicate him, say he was in the loop? I wonder if it's something more. Trump has have to have something on Graham that is super bad IMO.

The "just trying to get reelected" angle is complete garbage. He could have not said shit and get elected again in a landslide. His flip is way beyond rote politics.

There’s either a little boy, a body, or he’s being blackmailed by the Russians and taking their money.

But given the GOP these days, he might go up in their estimation.

"major news stories", eh. this guy is a fiction author who seems to be playing the role of 2020 louise mensch as far as I can tell.
I follow him on Twitter and he’s offered rewards for people to come out with information on these people.

For example, he was offering a reward for video from inside the detention centers where they keep children.

He’s said on Twitter that he’s had this information for a while but that verifying it takes time.

Being an anti-Trump Republican in South Carolina would have definitely given him a tougher primary fight.

I think people just want this blackmail shit to be true because it adds spiciness to The News, their favorite reality tv show.

Either this is nothing and Winslow is trying to sell something or this is something and Winslow's a jackass for not just reporting the reason.

Eeeeh.. I'm calling his bluff here. This just smells like a marketing ploy. Graham's heel turn is so abrupt and insane that whatever dirt exists on the guy, i'd venture to say that it is SO damning that if anyone with a conscience actually had proof/info, they'd be turning it over to police not sitting on it.

Everyone knows Barr is trying to block all investigations into Trump.

He admitted Trump himself was making it difficult to do so because he can't stop tweeting about it.

None of this is new.

This guy sounds like Tom Arnold.
