Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and President Trump don’t see eye to eye on the decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, but when it comes to House Democrats and their show trial impeachment inquiry, Graham has remained in the president’s corner.

As Streiff wrote earlier today, Democrats, the mainstream media, and even some Republicans pitched fits over Trump’s characterization of the Democratic party’s impeachment charades as a “lynching” in a tweet this morning:

So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!

In the midst of the Usual Suspects™ erupting in outrage, Sen. Graham was asked his thoughts on what Trump said and if he agreed with the comments. Here’s how Graham responded (transcribed):

I think it’s pretty well accurate. This is a sham. This is a joke. I’m going to let the whole world know that if we were doing this to a Democratic president you’d be all over me right now.

Not one person has asked me [these] questions:

“What do you think about the fact that President Trump doesn’t know who his accuser is?”

“What do you think about the fact that the Republican minority cannot call witnesses, that everything’s done behind closed doors?”

I can only imagine if this were a Democratic president what you would be saying to me right now. So it shows a lot of things about our national media.

When it’s about Trump, who cares about the process, as long as you get him? So yes this is a lynching in every sense, this is un-American.

Watch Graham speak to reporters about this issue below:

Sen. Lindsey Graham: “This is a sham. This is a joke. I’m going to let the whole world know that if we were doing this to a Democratic president, you would be all over me right now… This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American.”

Graham later clarified with a journalist that he was talking about a “political lynching” because apparently the journo actually believed he was equating the impeachment inquiry to the lynching (hanging and killing) of African-Americans that happened decades ago under Democratic rule.

I get the impression from Graham’s interviews and other various comments he’s made about what Democrats are doing regarding the impeachment process is that he’s on the verge of a Kavanaugh hearing-style smackdown of Congressional Democrats and their media enablers.

I sure hope he is, because a high-dosage reality check like that is exactly what is needed in the middle of the clown show.
