Lindsey Graham says Trump DID NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT Bill Clinton did
Well of course he didn’t. He’s doing a phenomenal job and the country is thriving because of it. Most millennials don’t even know how good they have it because they’re too busy looking at their handheld digital device screens to notice the prosperity around them.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina continued his stalwart defense of President Trump’s conduct, saying the president, unlike former President Bill Clinton, did “nothing wrong” that would warrant his impeachment and removal from office.
“What President Clinton did was interfere in a lawsuit against him by Paula Jones and others, hide the evidence, encouraged people to lie. So, to me, he took the legal system and turned it upside down. But it doesn’t have to technically be a crime,” Graham said on “Face the Nation” Sunday. “What President Trump did here was completely cooperate in an investigation, a million documents, let everybody that the special counsel wanted to talk to be interviewed.”
“I believe the president did nothing wrong. Whether you like him or not, I’ll leave that up to you,” he added.
