Lindsey Graham just ripped Adam Schiff a new one and called his impeachment operation illegitimate. Graham then lowered the boom and called this whole charade for what it is – a “political vendetta.”
Wow, strong words from Lindsey and that is not good for the Democrats who are praying the GOP controlled Senate will convict Trump.
That will never happen. Don’t believe me, believe Mitch McConnell who said yesterday the Senate will not convict. From The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Wednesday pushed back against allegations that the White House committed a quid pro quo in its dealings with Ukraine, saying that Trump administration’s policy goals related to the nation were “incoherent” and that officials didn’t seem capable of taking that step.
Graham made the comments while again dismissing revised testimony from Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, in which he acknowledged that Trump’s dealings with Ukrainian officials amounted to a quid pro quo.
“The whole process is a joke. The whole idea that there’s a quid pro quo based on somebody changing their testimony presuming there was,” Graham told reporters, adding that he had no plans of reading the transcript of Sondland’s testimony, which was released on Tuesday.
“This is a political vendetta,” Graham added. “What I can tell you about the Trump policy toward Ukraine. It was incoherent. It depends on who you talk to; they seem to be incapable of forming a quid pro quo.”
“You just pick things you like,” Graham said, apparently referencing the media. “Y’all hate this guy, you want to get him impeached. I’m not buying into [House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)] running a legitimate operation over there.”
“The whole process is a joke. ….You [media] just pick things you like. Ya’ll hate this guy [Trump]. Ya’ll want to get him impeached. I’m not buying into Schiff running a legitimate operation over there. …This is a political vendetta.” — @LindseyGrahamSC pic.twitter.com/RprXX4GHVJ
