Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) rolled out a new defense of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, suggesting that the leader of the free world was too incompetent to be impeached.
“What I can tell you about the Trump policy toward the Ukraine — it was incoherent,” Graham told reporters. “It depends on who you talked to. They seemed to be incapable of forming a quid pro quo.”
“So, no, I find the whole process to be a sham,” he added.
Earlier this week, Graham was forced to abandon earlier talking points in defense of Trump after U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland change his testimony to say that the president tried to extort Ukraine.

Italy’s COVID-19 death toll tops 10,000 despite long coronavirus lockdown
The coronavirus toll in Italy shot past 10,000 on Saturday and showed little sign of slowing despite a 16-day lockdown.
The 889 new fatalities reported in the world's worst-hit nation came a day after it registered 969 deaths on Friday -- the highest single toll since the COVID-19 virus emerged late last year.
Italy now looks certain to extend its economically debilitating -- and emotionally stressful -- business closures and the ban on public gatherings past their April 3 deadline.
"Is it time to reopen the country? I think we have to think about it really carefully," civil protection service chief Angelo Borrelli told reporters.
Joe Biden has one key coronavirus question he wants answered: ‘Where are the tests, Mr. President?’
Despite the inability to hold campaign rallies, the 2020 presidential campaign is continuing in spite of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
With the response to coronavirus being the top public policy discussion in America, all eyes are focused on President Donald Trump's actions.
Trump had promised the nation that he would set up COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites in the parking lots of big-box retailers but has so far failed to deliver.
Banks are causing a cash crisis by tightening lending standards during coronavirus crisis
Major banks in America are tightening access to credit as coronavirus shutdowns put households across America in dire financial shape, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.
"Banks and financial-technology firms are starting to toughen their approval standards for new loans to consumers and small businesses. That means many people could find it hard to get credit just when they most need it, as the novel coronavirus pandemic puts thousands out of work," the newspaper reported.
