And John McCain continues to spin like a rotisserie in in grave.
Courtesy of CNN:
“This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly,” the South Carolina Republican said Saturday during an interview with CNN International’s Becky Anderson at the Doha Forum in Qatar.
Asked if it was appropriate for him to be voicing his opinion before impeachment reaches the Senate, Graham replied, “Well, I must think so because I’m doing it.”
“I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here,” Graham said, adding, “What I see coming, happening today is just a partisan nonsense.”
In his opening remarks at the forum, Graham predicted the impeachment process would be over around mid-January.
“Personally I think President Trump will come out of this stronger and the good news is that everybody in politics in America needs to prove to the American public we’re not all completely crazy. So there may be a spirit of compromise coming post-impeachment, born of political necessity, if anything else,” Graham said.
I have already slammed Graham numerous times for his hypocrisy here on IM so I thought this time I would let somebody else reveal that hypocrisy, such as Lindsey Graham himself.
“Members of the Senate have said, ‘I understand everything there is about this case and I won’t vote to impeach the president.’ Please allow the facts to do the talking.”pic.twitter.com/UdEQytLyZZ https://t.co/A7qe5GxSkU

But wait, there’s more.
Please just hook this video of Lindsey Graham saying it would be a good test for Republicans if one of their own was up for impeachment directly into my veins. pic.twitter.com/DBRAKFGosg

Keep in mind that what Lindsey Graham was talking about there was moving forward with impeachment over lying about receiving a BJ from an intern.
Was that wrong?
Yes, yes it was.
Does it even come close to the charges now being leveled against Donald J. Trump?
And yet Graham was all about fairness and allowing the process to play out back then, and absolutely against it now that it really counts.
