    This is not Mr. Graham being ignorant - he KNOWS what he is doing and saying ... and he knows that his decision is rampantly corrupt in his standing about this issue. His goal is singular ... STAY in "good standing" with this President [whose base does not care if the President governs corruptly or not] and make a conscious decision to place his [Mr. Graham's] position within Congress ABOVE his Oath to the people of the United States and our Constitution. THAT, alone, should give the people of South Carolina reason enough to replace him with a different Republican candidate to run against the Democratic candidate. This whole process will unfold and it will tell the story of either how the most powerful free democratic republic in the world either crumbled under its own refusal to uphold its Constitutional framework and stood up to its corrupted government to take our l country back ... or bowed down before a man who would choose instead to assert himself as above the Law and rule us as a king/fascist dictator.

    Lindsey Graham wake up. Thanks for MSNBC everyone does a fine job on reporting, regardless what Trump says. Thanks for Virginia going blue.

  • Geri

    I need clarification: So, are you saying that the soldiers and citizens killed between August through September ( in Ukraine and the Kurds ) that Trump, Mulvaney and all the Senate Republicans have innocent blood on their hands? Because they "held up already authorized funds and military hardware", in order to find dirt on the Bidens, in order to win the 2020 election? Oh my gosh!!!! Isn't that bribery and against the USA CONSTITUTION, an impeachable offense? I am just asking. Mulvaney already publicly admitted it on national TV. " Yes, it was "quid pro quo.".

  • jodynh

    I really like the way you explained the difference between pushing someone out of the way of danger and pushing them to hurt them. You can say the same thing about quid pro quo. I used to trade babysitting with a neighbor. I'd watch her kids while she went to play bingo, and she'd watch mine while I went to a movie that wasn't a cartoon. That's a quid pro quo, but it's not illegal. In the movie Strangers On A Train, two men agreed to commit murders for each other so that it would be far more difficult to solve those murders. There would be no apparent motive. That's a totally different quid pro quo.

    the Republicans had no defend for Donald Trump, all they want to do is to cost chaos and chaos is a feeling of guilt, they know Donald Trump actions with the Ukrainian president was wrong and they still want to stand by him

    Graham said "show me where there's a quid pro quo" yet also refuses to read the transcripts of testimonies from five independent witnesses. As noted here, there's a difference between mens rea and actus reus. Even the redacted 'Ukraine 'phone call' transcript clearly demonstrates that, during the call itself, Trump had both Ukranian aid/future deals AND the investigation of the Bidens in his mind at the same time; its' therefore inconceivable that such a 'genius' as Trump would not mentally link the two issues during the call. Graham, Mulvaney and their ilk must think we're all idiots!!

    “Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

    Now this is such an ignorant man. First they say it's a witch Hunt first they said the scam. But yet they won't even read the transcripts figure out the truth.I'm sure he was in the room hearing the testimony so he really doesn't have to be to read the testimony. But what's so scary most of all is what do Trump have on. For them to put our democracy and constitutional rights at risk of losing. What do he havebrondes Republicans ask yourself that question. Because they seem to be so frightened of this man. They stay at his hotels and who knows if they're being recorded or taped. They are afraid of him for some reason because no one is stupid as the United States president that we have in the white house today. Are going to put this much fear in two grown men who've been in Congress. Most up part of their adult life. That they would be this afraid of such a big coward five-year-old wimp. Such spineless weak very weak men.
