Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday confronted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) with old video clips of himself calling for then-President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
“It is your job to supply us with the things we need to provide oversight over you,” Graham said at the time regarding White House subpoenas.
Wallace followed up: “Why is it an impeachable offense for Clinton or Nixon back then to ignore congressional subpoenas, but it’s okay for President Trump to do now?”
“Mueller is the final word on this for me,” Graham replied, ignoring Congress’ oversight role. “If Clinton had stiffed Ken Starr, that’s different. What [Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY)] is doing is trying to destroy the president and his family.”
“If I were the president, I’d fight back against this political revenge coming out of the House,” he added. “Mueller was the man of the law. Mueller was an independent voice that we all trusted to be fair. I don’t trust House Democrats to be fair.”

Beto O’Rourke’s ‘war tax’ policy proposal is straight out of ‘Starship Troopers’
Amid an overcrowded Democratic presidential candidate field, it's hard to distinguish yourself from the pack if you don't slot easily into the scale that runs from "pro-corporate centrist" to "left-populist." If you're former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke — who falls somewhere in the middle, politically, and somewhere towards the top, looks-wise — you pull a militaristic policy proposal out of your hat that recalls some of the most campy pseudo-fascist sci-fi ever written.
