Senator Lindsey Graham has had a front-row seat during the entire impeachment show trial, and so he’s as qualified as anyone to judge how it’s going.
“This thing is collapsing before their eyes, and the not-guilty vote is growing, so it’ll be over by Sunday, I hope, for the good of country,” Graham told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
“The not-guilty vote is growing after today,” he added. “I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House managers offensive and absurd. We all know what happened at the Capitol was terrible. I hope everybody involved that broke into the Capitol goes to jail, but I don’t remember any of these House managers saying a damn thing when they were trying to break into my house and going after Susan Collins and spitting on all of us.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Graham appeared to reference a mid-September incident in which dozens of protesters banged on pots and pans outside of the senator’s Washington, D.C., home to “wake him up” in the dead of night. He also mentioned threats levied against Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins during the 2018 confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
I hope for America’s sake that Graham is right.
