“Sen. Lindsey Graham says he agrees with President Donald Trump that the Democrats’impeachment drive is like a “lynching.”
“The South Carolina Republican senator told reporters Tuesday that Trump’s description is “pretty well accurate,” adding that the effort is a “sham” and a “joke” because the president doesn’t know the identity of his accuser and the process is playing out in private.
“Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill that, “This is a lynching in every sense. This is un–American.””
