    Graham has impeachment double standard

    Nothing has changed.....The trump regime stonewalling Congress is Impeachable...

    Our country is based in Checks and Balances.....Without that assurance....an Authoritarian system will rise.....

    The stonewalling of Congress by trump and his thugs is turning the Constitution on its head....IT WILL BE ADDED TO THE ARTICLES IF IMPEACHMENT. trump WILLBE IMPEACHED.....Snakes deserve to be Impeached.

    If the defiance goes to court....the trump regime will lose Bigly....

    There's no official impeachment...Pelosi knows that calling for a vote on that is political kamikaze attack...There is only the fake "impeachment inquiry" being run by the compulsive lying and leaking crapweasel Schiff....But the linked piece is from the hacks at Salon....GIGO.

    Just more swill from one of the forum's top haters.

    Well there's 5 minutes I'll never get back. Nothing wrong with Graham's response. The only "squirming" I see is the OP squirming at the probability of a second Trump presidency.

    Trump's failure to comply with congressional subpoenas was once described by Lindsey Graham as impeachment-worthy

    While he was still a Congressman, Graham was a manager during the Clinton impeachment. The video clip of Graham, which has circulated previously, was first highlighted by the campaign group Republicans for the Rule of Law. The conservative journalist Bill Krystol posted it again on his Twitter account on Tuesday and the video was shared widely.

    "Article Three of impeachment against Richard Nixon, the Article was based on the idea that Richard Nixon as president failed to comply with subpoenas of Congress," Graham says in the clip.

    "Congress was going through its oversight function to provide oversight of the president. When asked for information Richard Nixon chose not to comply and the Congress back in that time said you're taking impeachment away from us.

    "You're becoming the judge and jury. It is not your job to tell us what we need, it is your job to comply with the things we need to provide oversight over you.

    "The day Richard Nixon failed to answer that subpoena is that day that he was subject to impeachment because he took the power from Congress over the impeachment process away from Congress and he became the judge and jury."


    Graham's a stone cold hypocrite.

    "He doesn't have the temperament or judgement to control himself when he gets mad. This is kook land."

    "I'm not gonna try to get into the mind of Donald Trump, because there's not a whole lot of space there. I think he's a kook. I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office. I'm a Republican, he's not. He's not a conservative Republican. He's an opportunist."

    "I want to talk to the Trump supporters for a minute. I don't know who you are, and I don't know why you like this guy...Here's what you're buying. He's a race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for."

    I'm not a fan of Graham (nor Trump) but 3 years of the Democrats crying that the sky is falling earns him this bit of leeway in my mind.
