Spineless Lindsey Graham Says It’s Not His Job To Hold Trump Accountable
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is basically confessing that he has no objective of being an unbiased juror in Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, stating that history – not U.S. Senators – need to hold the disgraced ex-president liable for prompting the Jan. 6 insurrection.
According to MSNBC’s Garrett Haake, “Lindsey Graham has been telling reporters for a couple of days now he thinks it will be up to history to hold President Trump accountable.”

We’ll see where it goes from here. I believe now that the constitutionality argument is done, however, we’ll see an argument that will be more sort of historic in nature. Lindsey Graham has actually been informing press reporters for a number of days now, he believes it will depend on history to hold President Trump liable. Now you can argue that’s an abdication of his own individual duty, however I believe that’s what the arguments are going to be concentrated on now.
Republicans are frantically attempting to prevent doing their tasks
Lindsey Graham’s argument makes no sense, naturally, however it’s likewise a sign of simply how desperate Republican politicians are to prevent putting their nation over Donald Trump.
Republicans would rather confess to refraining from doing their tasks than openly state what they understand to be real: Trump is guilty of prompting a lethal attack on the U.S. Capitol.
History doesn’t simply take place by mishap. It is made by males and females who stand and do the ideal thing at the correct time, even when it’s tough. Even when it might cost them their tasks.
The spineless Republican politician Celebration of 2021 is incapable of revealing that kind of nerve. History will, undoubtedly, keep in mind how GOP legislators like Lindsey Graham renounced their duty.
