Graham Slams Democrats: Impeachment Inquiry a ‘Sham,’ Trump’s Right, This Is a ‘Lynching’

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Tuesday backed up President Donald Trump’s assessment that the Democratic impeachment inquiry is a “lynching,” adding it is a “sham.”

Asked what he thought of Trump’s characterization of the impeachment inquiry as a lynching, Graham responded, “I think that’s pretty well accurate.”

“This is a sham. This is a joke,” he added. “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, who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, promised that should the House vote to impeach Trump, he would do everything he could “to make sure it doesn’t live very long in the Senate,” The Hill reported.


Trump tweeted earlier in the day that Democrats are denying him due process rights in their inquiry into his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“So someday, 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,” he wrote.

“All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!”

Graham identified some of those rights to reporters.

“I’ve never seen a situation in my life as a lawyer where somebody is accused of major misconduct who cannot confront the accuser, call witnesses on their behalf and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge,” he said.

Pressed again on Trump’s use of the word “lynching,” Graham did not back down.

“I think lynching is being seen as somebody taking the law in their own hands and out to get somebody for no good reason,” he said.

The Twitter outrage mob was fast to attack Trump calling him a racist for using the term.

Yet, the same outrage mob that attacks Trump gave Jerry Nadler a pass for 1998 during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
