Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Tuesday resumed his role as President Donald Trump's staunchest defender, and he has now revealed his plan to distract the country from House Democrats' impeachment inquiry: Unleash Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani, who has been widely ridiculed for his string of bizarre cable news appearances in which he has ranted incoherently about assorted conspiracy theories, has claimed to have uncovered massive corruption involving former Vice President Joe Biden, although he has presented precisely zero evidence to back up his claims.

"Given the House of Representatives’ behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine," Graham wrote. "Therefore I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns."
