If it wasn’t bad enough that he endlessly defends President Donald Trump no matter what he says or does, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is now inviting the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and spread whatever bizarre conspiracy theories he can think of regarding former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine.
As part of an interview for the CBS News Sunday show “Face the Nation,” Graham remarked:
“Well, I don’t know what he found, but if he wants to come the Judiciary Committee — Rudy, if you want to come and tell us what you found, I’ll be glad to talk to you. When it comes to impeachment, I want to base my decision on the record assembled in the House.”
Graham then added that he’d be glad to open an investigation into both Joe Biden and his son, Hunter:
“We can look at what Rudy’s got and Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and anything else you want to look at after impeachment. But if Rudy wants to come to the Judiciary Committee and testify about what he found, he’s welcome to do so.”
Earlier in the day, Graham also admitted that he had absolutely no plans to actually be an impartial juror when Trump’s impeachment trial is held in the Senate, commenting:
“This thing will come to the Senate, and it will die quickly, and I will do everything I can to make it die quickly.
“I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here. What I see coming, happening today is just a partisan nonsense.”
For those remarks alone, Graham needs to be voted out of office in 2020. He also should be disqualified from serving as part of the impeachment trial. And in the name of fairness, let’s also do a thorough investigation of the Senator from South Carolina.
