Lindsey Graham just ripped the hapless Democrats and their kangaroo impeachment court and agreed with Trump that this was a ‘lynching.”
But Graham went further calling what the Dems are doing is “un-American.”
“This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American,” Graham said to reporters.
“I’ve never seen a situation in my lifetime as a lawyer where somebody is accused of a major misconduct who cannot confront the accuser, call witnesses on their behalf and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge,” he said.
Graham agreed with Trump’s assessment that this was a lynching, “I think that’s pretty well accurate.”
“I think lynching is being seen as somebody taking the law in their own hands and out to get somebody for no good reason,” he said.
“Yes, African Americans have been lynched. Other people have been lynched throughout history.
What does lynching mean? That a mob grabs you, they don’t give you a chance to defend yourself, they don’t tell you what happened to you, they just destroy you.
That’s exactly what’s happening in the United States House of Representatives right now,” he said.
“In every sense, this is a mob taking over the rule of law. This is fundamentally un-American and until it changes, I will fight back as hard as I can,” he said of House Democrats.
He then took aim at the media:
“What’s happened to your business? If we as Republicans took a Democratic president and did this to them you would not be so offended by the word,” he said.
