Lindsey Graham Gets Tossed Around Twitter After Going On Crazy Rant Defending Trump: ‘No Collusion!’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who was a heavy critic of Donald Trump at the beginning of his presidency, is now one of Trump’s biggest defenders in Washington.
On Tuesday, the South Carolina Republican took to Twitter to defend the president by echoing his own words.
“Using the Mueller report as a basis for impeachment would be an unhinged act of political retribution.”
To me, the Mueller report is vindication of President Trump:
* No collusion between Trump campaign and Russia.
* No underlying crime.
* No obstruction.
* The president and administration overwhelmingly cooperated with the Mueller investigation.
Time to move on.

This is quite ironic given the fact that Graham contradicted his own arguments in favor of impeaching Bill Clinton to shield the president from consequences after the 22-month special counsel investigation.
But Twitter users weren’t going to let Graham get away with his tweet. Here are some of the best responses:
Cooperating, like saying “I dont recall” 50x in written answers because he refused to testify?

So you have changed your mind on lying and what constitutes impeachment now. Before you thought Bill Clinton should be impeached over lying about an affair. But welcoming a foreign adversary help than lying and obstructing the investigation is a okay now huh. Fuck off

Special Counsel detailed several instances where all the elements of obstruction were met.
Mueller referred to this as a President’s corrupt use of his authority. (See, for example, Vol. II, p 8)
Are you okay with corrupt use of authority, Senator?

“Impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.” – Lindsey Graham

Do you ever look in the mirror and try to remember what it was like to have even a sliver of dignity
