Former Republican Congressman Blasts ‘Shameless’ Lindsey Graham

Senator Lindsey Graham speaks to the media at the White House.

In an interview with MSNBC broadcast on Saturday, former Republican Representative David Jolly of Florida ripped into GOP Senator Lindsey Graham, Raw Story reports.

Graham recently said that he will not even read the transcripts from impeachment witnesses, calling the House Democrats’ investigation into President Donald Trump a “sham.”

Jolly suggested that Graham’s statements are not surprising, and described the South Carolina senator as “shameless.”

“It’s one more shameful moment from a shameless senator, what we’re seeing from Lindsey Graham, but consistent with all of the other arguments,” he said.

The former Republican congressman argued that GOP lawmakers cannot address the substance of allegations against Trump, because the president has admitted to the crime he is being accused of committing.

“No Republican argument will actually touch the fact that the president confessed to bribing and extorting a foreign nation-state for purposes of benefiting himself politically,” he said.

According to Jolly, Republicans will not change their minds until Republican voters change their minds.
