Lindsey Graham says impeachment is 'invalid' if the whistleblower doesn't get outed

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) hit some Sunday shows to express his unyielding ó and unfounded ó devotion to the notion of Donald Trump's innocence. In doing so, he pitched some curious ideas, including the idea that he gets to decide what a valid or invalid impeachment might be.

Graham went on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" with Maria Bartiromo to explain his latest thinking on impeachment, kicking things off by complaining that it's Democrats who don't care about getting to the truth.

According to Graham, "any impeachment in the House that doesn't allow us to know who the whistle-blower is to be invalid, because without the whistle-blower complaint, we wouldn't be talking about any of this."

This ignores that the whistleblower has offered to answer written questions, under oath, directly from Republicans. It lays bare that the GOP doesn't want the truth from the whistleblower ó they just want the whistleblower's identity compromised. It also ignores the fact that much of what the whistleblower brought up in their complaint has been largely corroborated by other sources.

A lot of those things aren't true.

16. I'm sure John McCain must be turning over in his grave at the thought of how far Lindsay has fallen.

2. He is so deeply pathetic.

A lifetime in politics and he has for reasons we donít yet know has chosen that his sycophantic relationship with Trump will be his legacy,

19. Oh I can't

wait till we hear all about him and his blackmailing details. He really changed his tune. In the back pocket of tRump/Putin.

McConnell too, he will go down too. Only cares about himself and doesn't give a shit about Americans or the country.

4. Oh, Lindsey. When will your gaslighting traitor trot be over????

We get it.

You STILL can't handle the truth.
But by now, you're just an embarrassment - to yourself, JAG, let alone God and country.

9. He doesn't have to speak the truth. These unfounded claims are accepted as fact to those that matter

They simply want confirmation of what they believe, and will think no further and investigate not at all.

The GOP's greatest asset is a propagandized, unthinking American citizen.

10. Demanding to know who called 911...

We are at the trial of the deadly arsonist for the conviction and sentencing, and the defense lawyers is demanding to know who called 911.

18. Thank you!

It doesn't matter who the fucking whistleblower is. We have proof of what was done and we have witnesses that confirm it and the President has even admitted that he did it. This shit about knowing the identity of the whistleblower needs to be nipped in the bud. It's a whiny brat's attempt to shift blame when the evidence is plain to see.

11. Maybe Lindsey needs to be outed also

Iím sure there is a whistleblower out there who has whistled on his organ who can come forward and be a patriot.

I am so sick of hypocrites like Lindsey. And you know MF45 has the pictures to keep blackmailing him. I BET WHEN Lindsey went to Russia, Putin sent him a young stud in to entertain Lindsey and Putin has the videos. Like he has of MF45.

12. We need to out the whistleblower like we need to out a person who finds a dead body.

The name of the person who stumbles upon a crime scene is completely irrelevant.

Anyone with half a brain knows this, which explains why trumpers have fallen for it.

14. The whistleblower had no firsthand knowledge but pointed out many others who did

Our anonymous informant told us Al and Bob and Chuck told him they heard Dennis and Ed bragging about robbing the bank! Al refused to talk with us, but we spoke with Bob and Chuck who confirmed this information for us

The informant also told us Frank and Greg and Henry told him they heard Dennis and Jack bragging about robbing the bank! Greg refused to talk with us, but we spoke with Frank and Henry who confirmed this information for us

The informant further told us Kevin and Lou and Mike told him they heard Jack and Pete bragging about robbing the bank! Mike refused to talk with us, but we spoke with Kevin and Lou who confirmed this information for us

Dennis told us he saw Ed and some other people rob the bank when he happened to be there. Ed told us he saw Dennis and Jack and some other guy rob the bank when he happened to be there. Jack told us he saw Ed and Pete and some other guy rob the bank when he happened to be there. Pete told us he saw Dennis and Ed and Jack rob the bank when he happened to be there.

We got an indictment against Dennis and Ed and Jack and Pete for bank robbery. We plan to call Bob and Chuck and Frank and Henry and Kevin and Lou as witnesses at trial. But Dennis and Ed and Jack and Pete all want the case thrown out unless they can examine our anonymous informant
