Vintage 1999 Lindsey Graham video leaves him in an awkward position when it comes to impeaching...

...Trump

Every reporter must now ask @LindseyGrahamSC if he still believes in the standard he set for removing a president in the impeachment of Bill Clinton





“So the point I’m trying to make is that you don’t have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this Constitutional republic,” Graham said. “If this body determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds … because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”

For normal people this could be problematic.. not for this type of chap though - i doubt he even notices the hypocrisy anymore.

About Lindsey Graham. A long time friend of Mc Cain has now suddenly become a Trump friend. The guy who mocked a war hero, has insulted him since he has been deathly sick,yet Graham sucks up to him.

I was going to post something else. Better not because I despise him.

Something about Graham having to give up his cell phone number because Trump read it during a debate or something and urged people to call Lindsey. Graham hated Trump.

Share and remind everyone you know. If the RepubliCONs refuse to act, on that day we will hold them all accountable. (Yes, even the ones who aren’t up for re-election — they will become impotent lame ducks)

He's a Republican. All he has to say is, "so what? That was then, and this is now."

Problem solved, Republican style.

37. The GOP hypocrisy surrounding the Clinton impeachment was enough to gag a goat.

I appreciate these clips resurfacing just now, because younger Dems don't have a personal memory of these events, and have been fed RW swill and lazy catch-phrases to the point they believe them over the bare facts.

Jim Carrey Criticizes Lindsey Graham With Cartoon Makeover

.... Carrey did not explain exactly why he had decided to take artistic aim at Graham. But it comes in the same week that the senator went back on his July 2017 vow that “there will be holy hell to pay” if President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. ....
