The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee—J.U.D.I.C.I.A.R.Y. Committee—is planning to “rally his Republican colleagues” in the Senate to sign a letter in solidarity with Donald Trump, declaring that the phone call now at the center of the impeachment inquiry, between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, is not an impeachable offense.

News flash to Lindsey: Senate letters are not legally binding documents. Furthermore, the Senate has no power over the speaker of the House of Representatives in setting her agenda. He does know this, but nonetheless will persist. “They are about to destroy the nation for no good reason,” he said. “I’ve read the transcript. I do not see anything wrong there and I want Nancy Pelosi to know that Republican senators are not going to impeach this president based on this transcript, so she can stop now before she destroys this country.”

Good to know that the guy in charge of installing federal judges is absolutely fine with the president asking foreign governments to fix U.S. elections, just for confirmation of the fact that he considers his official duties a sham. At this point, though, Trump is racking up countless impeachable offenses like they’re going out of style. Lindsey Graham of 2019 doesn’t have a problem with that.

Lindsey Graham of 1998 might like to have a word with him, however.

Yuh, Methinks that Graham’s shout about the betrayal of the Kurds was based on his not wanting Trump to break Republican Senate solidarity regarding no impeachment. If they are planning to dump him quick at the last minute, will it be to protect Pences’ chances to step in? Anything to protect The Club. Trump may be wanting to flamethrower Pence anyway, just for fun! we’ll say. While candidate Pence can struggle across the finish line dragging the Ukraine Corruption Scandal the entire way, I don’t see him winning.

Sure would like to see those pics of Graham that Trump and the Russians have. Lindsey should be made to recite what he told the hose when Clinton was up for impeachment. Say it loud and clear.

And we don’t know the extent of the “whole” phone call. Someone needs trump pony up the missing 20 minutes. And with Rudy’s buddies getting picked up this very well could turn into a criminal complaint
