While he was at one time a ferocious critic of the man, Lindsey Graham has become one of the biggest Trump sycophants in Washington DC. The South Carolina senator even said this weekend that he could look into scoring the President some revenge by calling Hunter Biden to testify in front of the senate.
Graham has frequently been questioned about his words and his behavior during the senate impeachment hearing. The senator told Brian Kilmeade on Thursday that he isn’t worried about God judging him for his vote to acquit.
The Republican lawmaker made the comments while discussing Mitt Romney’s faith inspired vote to remove Trump. “All I can tell you is that God gave us free will and common sense,” Graham said. “I used the common sense God gave me to understand this was a bunch of B.S.”
Graham continued, “[Impeachment] was politically driven, it was driven by people who are not looking for the truth, they hate Trump, they were gonna impeach him the day he got elected and if you can’t see through this, you know, your religion is clouding your thinking here/.”
The South Carolina senator closed his remarks, “When I go to meet God at the pearly gates I don’t think he’s going to ask me, ‘Why didn’t you convict Trump?’ I may be wrong but I don’t think that’s gonna be at the top of the list.”
