Lindsey Graham Takes Nasty Swipe at Mitch McConnell After Impeachment Speech

OUCH!

The Republican Party this week avoided another political black eye by mustering enough votes to acquit Donald Trump…again.

Trump was facing a single article of impeachment this time around, for “inciting an insurrection”, and there was never really too much doubt that things were going to shake out the way in which they did.  The GOP, while irked by Trump’s behavior at times, was not willing to risk alienating the MAGA portion of their base over the actions of a man already removed from the White House.

Lindsey Graham even went so far as to mention the likelihood of an acquittal last week, in a declaration that some considered to be a bit premature at the time.

But just because the Republicans skated through another of these incidents relatively unscathed doesn’t mean that everyone within the party is seeing eye-to-eye.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for speaking out against former President Donald Trump after voting to acquit Trump at his impeachment trial.

Despite voting in Trump’s favor, McConnell, R-Ky., blamed the former president for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Graham warned on “Fox News Sunday” that this will be used against Republicans as they try to retake control of Congress in 2022.

“I think Sen. McConnell’s speech, he got a load off his chest, obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans,” Graham said. “That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns.”

McConnell’s speech was heavily critical of Donald Trumps, calling his response to the attempted insurrection a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” and later stating that Trump was “practically and morally” responsible for the actions of that day.
