Lindsey Graham Says He Will Not Read The Transcripts, Dismissed Witness’ Reversal: “This Is A Bunch Of B.S.”

This makes no sense.

Well, now that there’s been a testimonial reversal with Donald Trump’s ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland in which he now recalls how he told Ukrainian officials military aid was tied to their commitment to investigations “president” Trump wanted, it seems that information isn’t suddenly wanted by Republicans. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that he will not read any of the transcripts released Tuesday by the House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry.

House Democrats also released excerpts of the transcripts of their closed-door depositions with former U.S. Special Envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker. This is what Republicans wanted.  They called for the release of the transcripts and now that Democrats have delivered them, they’re not very happy, especially Graham, who told  CBS News’s Kathryn Watson: ‘”I’ve written the whole process off … I think this is a bunch of B.S.”

Rep. Ted Lieu, a member of the Judiciary Committee, fired back and tagged Trump.

Lindsey got what he wanted and now he doesn’t want it.

Graham, who bizarrely flip-flopped from being a Trump critic, has gone all-in for this “president.” On Sept. 25, he told reporters: “If you’re looking for a circumstance where the president of the United States was threatening the Ukraine [sic] with cutting off aid unless they investigated his political opponent, you’d be very disappointed. That does not exist.”

When Graham was asked by Axios last month what it would take to change his mind on impeachment with Trump, he said, “If you could show me that, you know, Trump actually was engaging in a quid pro quo, outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing.”

Graham would rather allow a corrupt “president” to continue with his misdeeds to this country than to hold him accountable. It’s almost as if someone has something on the South Carolina Republican. How does he know the transcripts are bullshit if he hasn’t read them?
