Lindsey Graham Abdicates Constitutional Requirement to Remain Neutral by Meeting with Trump Impeachment Attorneys
SCDP Chairman Trav Robertson, Jr released the following statement:
“In 1998, Senator Graham believed lying about sex was an impeachable offense, but in 2021, an attempted overthrow of the United States Government is okay. Once a rational, sane, logical Senator of the people, Lindsey Graham has morphed into one of the most vocal advocates of the former President and those who would overthrow our government. His zeal for those that attacked our Capital and our Constitution at the expense of South Carolina voters is inexcusably responsible for the wave of insurrections who mobbed the United States Capitol on January 6th, 2021, in an attempt to interrupt the peaceful transition of power at the executive level.
That Lindsey Graham would continue to rubber stamp Trump’s blatantly treasonous behavior after five United States citizens died as a result of the mob, going as far as to meet in the cover of night with the flailing and failing Trump legal team ahead of today’s impeachment proceedings should be an affront to anyone who claims to love this nation and our democracy that we hold so dear.
South Carolinians will not stand idly by, while Lindsey Graham and other Senate Republicans disregard what was the most shameful day in our nation’s history, when thousands of Trump supporters endangered the lives of our members of congress and the Vice President. We are calling on all Democrats to contact the offices of Senator Graham and Senator Scott and remind them that they took an oath to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. This includes Donald Trump and his unhinged acolytes. Remember that at the end of the day, Senators, you all work for us.”
