‘Lindsey Graham should resign if he won’t do his job’: Ex-Republican says Senator is unfit to even be a lawyer

Published

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was blasted by a former Republican congressman on Tuesday for refusing to do his job.

Graham, a close ally of President Donald Trump, chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee but has said he will not read any of the transcripts in the impeachment inquiry.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) blasted Graham on MSNBC.

“I think Lindsey Graham should resign if he’s not going to do his job,” Jolly said. “The chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and he said he’s not going to look at the facts of the allegations against the president of the United States, that he worked with a foreign nation to corrupt the domestic elections in 2020.”

Not only did Jolly find Graham unfit for the U.S. Senate, but he also went so far as to argue Graham was not even fit to be a lawyer.

“If Lindsey Graham is unwilling to do his job, he needs to quit the United States Senate and he should hand in his bar license to the state of South Carolina,” Jolly added.

Published

Despite all the uncertainty surrounding impeachment, we can capture the current moment succinctly: President Trump’s fate hinges on whether Republican senators are more fearful of losing in a primary or in the general election. Now that the live impeachment hearings are about to fuel nationwide prime-time programming, those senators’ fears are likely to intensify.

While that dynamic will determine whether Trump will be removed from office, it doesn’t tell us whether he should be.  I am generally an impeachment skeptic. My recent book—Impeaching the President: Past, Present, Future—argues that impeachment should be regarded as a last resort that, as a general proposition, is inappropriate in a president’s first term.  The American people are capable of rendering judgment and should be given the first crack.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.
