According to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), now that former President Donald Trump has been impeached and acquitted for a second time, Vice President Kamala Harris should be the next public official to face impeachment.
Graham appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and suggested that if Republicans win back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, Harris might be facing impeachment for supporting members of the Black Lives Matter movement who protested the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last year:
“The trial record was a complete joke. Hearsay on top of hearsay, and we’ve opened Pandora’s Box for future presidents and if you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if Republicans take over the House because she actually bailed out rioters, and more of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open, so we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here, and I’m sad for the country.”
Harris didn’t bail out any rioters. The Washington Post destroyed that GOP lie in September of 2020. All she did was tweet out support for the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), which provides assistance for those accused of crimes.
It’s clear that Lindsey Graham still has his nose stuck so far up Donald Trump’s ass that he can’t tell if it’s day or night. But his allegiance to the failed, one-term president is little more than a play for political cover. If Graham continues to blindly march in lockstep with Trump, he may find out that the country — and his constituents — have passed him by.
