  1. I thought it was his duty to read those documents, and that he had no choice. Nothing to do with initially taking sides, but he has to read the notes.

  2. Lindsey Graham is a professional toadie. He was John McCain’s toadie before. And now he’s Trump’s. Lindsey Graham is a joke.

  3. Lindsey Graham is a disgrace to the integrity of the office he holds if he’s so defiant as to claim trump is innocent without first looking at all the facts presented, THEN considering an opinion. This lap dog needs to step down.

  4. Lindsey Graham sure wins the Oscar for the best hypocrites honorless shameless supporting (Trump the swamp) actor

  5. Won’t even look at the evidence but he’ll vote on it. Corrupt much?

    • What in the name of all that is holy will he do when he needs to listen to testimony which he doesn’t like? Certainly don’t think that is proper for someone on a jury anywhere.

  6. Whenever you bring up the evidence of Trump’s bribery and abuse of power, Lindsey Graham and other republicans will immediately close their eyes and cover their ears and start shouting  “la la lalala lalala lalala.”
    They don’t realize that doing so is just more evidence of Trump’s guilt.

  7. Trying to defend the indefensible. They look more pathetic every day and are headed for extinction.

  8. Ms. Lindsay needs to go home and stop embarrassing himself.

    He OWES the people of the USA, he needs to also be ousted!

  10. The people of South Carolina should refuse to pay taxes until Lindsay Graham resigns and should insist that he does not get paid as he isn’t doing his job

    • Even my family has decided he needs to go. I guess his association with Trump is wearing thin. They will get the vote out , and they are horrified by the snake in the Whitehouse.

      wiser3754 They should stop paying until Lindsay resigns. Any pressure might help him decide to resign faster. Besides, firefighters and EMT’s are paid by local gov’ts, not state. What are taxpayers supposed to do when their elected representative refuses to do his job? Congratulate him for gaming the process?

    • He called SC Trumpistan, thats why he is selling his soul. For his reelection.

    • I like that

  11. I’m just *S.M.H. at Ms. Lindsey* What a pathetic way to react to reporters and, better yet, making himself look lawless and tired.

  12. Lindsey Graham “I’m not going to legitimize it”
    Seriously?
    You’re not in any position to legitimize anything at this point !

    • @Bruce BoringBoring that was before he found out a very prominent oligarch had lots-o-ruble$ and found Lindsays State… hmmm how convenient… now… ‘dOnalds’ great…

    • McConnell also… he got an Aluminum Plant with all the ruble$ attached for his State also… hmmm…

    • and then we have Rubio… and… and…

    • @VermillionVermillion ‘wimp’ is my word… simple and straight to the point! ‘tRump’ and the ‘GOP’ are ‘wimps’… ‘pathetic wimps’… ‘kiNg’ ‘wimp’ the most ‘pathetic’…

  13. It’s true that Lindsey Graham in incapable of legitimizing anything. He has lost all moral authority he may have had, say, 20 years ago.

  14. “I’m too stupid to know any better and understand the consequences, therefore I can do whatever I want.”
    Yeah, try using that argument if the police ever haul you in.

    • Right, it’s ridiculous. However prison is full of people who never had chance in life and for petty crime. How I hate these traitors.

    • razor8191 Interesting enough, Trump will clap back at this defense. He’s super sensitive about his “guh-reat uh-brain”.

    • But LG isn’t saying Trump is too stupid to know better. He’s saying Trump and company are too stupid to even do a quid pro quo with Ukraine. As dumb as they are, they did do it (it’s not really very hard). Of course they bungled the coverup.

    • No wonder the oceans are full of plastic, the Republicans keep having all these straws slip thru their grasp.

  15. Poor, poor, poor old Lindsey. Time to go home and let someone else have a turn. The fat old white man is done.

  16. Shouldn’t *”Too Incompetent”* be an equally valid reason for impeachment of a president?

    • @Dawn Kennedy ~ While correlation is not causation, I find it interesting that the percentage of trump supporters is almost the same percentage as the number of Americans who score 80 or below on the IQ scale.

      These supporters literally are the “… some of the people all of the time…” part of the saying.

    • Exactly

    • This man is mentally ill seriously I think that he did all this without even knowing that he did something wrong. If he can’t tell the difference he shouldn’t be in office.

    • Only logical people think that. Try to keep up with the times.

  17. This fool should be next to leave congress. Take Moscow Mitch with him!

  18. Graham needs to resign. He doesn’t want to do his job. Get him out too

  19. No one respects a person who is unwilling to even confront some facts/

  20. Graham should be impeached since he cannot do his job.
