Gone With The Wind, Starring Lindsey Graham

Scarlett: Sir, you are no gentleman.
Rhett Butler: And you, Miss, are no lady.

[Scene: Senatorette Lindsey Graham, in silhouette, shakes fist and screams to the heavens…]

Anyway, Lindsey Graham introduced a resolution yesterday that condemns House Democrats’ impeachment investigation:

Senate Republicans introduced a resolution on Thursday condemning the impeachment inquiry against President Trump and calling on the House to hold a formal vote on the inquiry.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is spearheading the resolution, which is backed by 44 GOP senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

Graham, during a press conference with reporters, lashed out the House impeachment inquiry calling it a “secret proceeding” and a “rogue action” that “denies due process.”

“The process in the House today I think is a danger to the future of the presidency,” Graham told reporters.

He argued that under the current procedure Trump was “pretty much shut out,” adding “God help future presidents.”

Of course, Graham is actually a lawyer and knows that the impeachment hearings are not trials, being more akin to a Grand Jury investigation, but, you know that a certain orange ass needs a certain amount of kissing.

So how is it playing with the rest of the Senate Republicans? Not so well!

The GOP senators not cosponsoring the resolution as of Thursday afternoon, according to a list from Graham’s office, are: Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), Dan Sullivan(R-Alaska) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio).

Other Senators are trying to duck into their shells, so to speak.  And while #MoscowMitch says he supports Senatorette Graham’s resolution, he’s not scheduled a vote yet. “Too many courts remained unstacked,” he didn’t say.

    I am without words … << See, it’s funny because it’s disproved right there, and because it makes about as much sense as Lindsay’s statement.

    Welp, I am one of the voters who contact my government representatives when I have concerns or congratulations. I guess I’ll go tell Rob Portman that I’m glad he hasn’t signed that resolution and that I hope he doesn’t cave. I will continue to keep my Senators and Representatives informed about my concerns and remind them that they work for me.

      Oh, oh, and the Starr investigation! Until they got a soft porn version put together they pretty much kept it behind closed doors. In fact, I seem to remember that the first reports were “leaks” rather than official reports.

    Good to see ol’ Cory is starting to worry about the wrath of his constituents that aren’t dead end Trumpies. I send him flaming email about impeachment every week. Sometimes twice a week just because he’s such a craven little weasel. Coming to Jesus at this point won’t save his ass in the next election, but maybe he’ll get to hang onto a tiny piece of his integrity (yeah, I know that’s a stretch) when we give him the boot. I’m hoping the door hits him good and hard in the ass on the way out.

    The Russians must have some good dirt on Miss Lindsay. Is it that she has always relied on the “kindness” of strangers?

      The Russians, that Len guy (was his $800K donation to Lindsay’s PAC truly all Ameriacan? Illegal if not) or maybe Trump himself. Surely he brings his enforcer along to hang out with his SS detail. and surely that guy had time to take Lindsay aside at least once with a “nice face you got there, too bad if something happened to it.”

    I remember the super condensed, vacuum packed calf shit over a blow job that Republicans tried to sell the country back in the 90s, so when I hear that same party trying to wave off a truly serious issue by claiming the rules they ran their impeachment under are not the right rules to judge them by makes me want to bitch slap them — a Betty Davis bitch slap.*

    where the head winds up pointed east, the shoulders west, the hips point north and the feet point south. Betty Davis packed was one helluva bitch slap!
