Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) plans to hand the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee back to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa.) in the next Congress.

Graham took over the panel this year from Grassley, who left to chair the Senate Finance Committee.

In an interview Thursday, Graham said Grassley asked to come back after his tenure on the Senate Finance Committee. Graham responded “absolutely.”

“Love Chuck Grassley. That’s the way the Senate works,” Graham said. “He took the Finance Committee so I could be chairman, and he’ll come back and fill out his time, and I’ll come back, and somebody else will come along.”

4. Me too, but fuck, it's gonna be uphill...

GOP is funded by Russian oligarchs, hostile powers are all joining together and attacking Dems on social media, and a completely broken DoJ is a different trifecta that keeps me up at night.

8. On the brightside because the Republicans were so willing to pass many things with

only 51 votes it only behooves us imo to return the favor.
Not to mention the next Democrat as President need not ask Congress to redirect money to social programs again courtesy of the Republicans as they gave their consent to a President to do whatever they want with taxpayer money.

7. Assley would have to become a Democrat before that could happen

Because Dems are going to steamroll punks like them right out of the majority.
