Lindsey Graham declared that the House impeachment trial was rushed, but then paradoxically said, “I want this trial to be over as quick as possible,” on Fox News Sunday. This is nothing new. Since before the House impeachment inquiry began, Graham has been in the middle of this issue, and like quicksilver, his ideas about the parameters of impeachment keep shifting and flowing in all directions. Graham has moved the goalposts so many times, that now they’re gone and only a bounce house remains. Welcome to Impeachment 2020 a total reversal of Impeachment 1999.

Watch for more of the same. Graham’s clips from the Clinton impeachment, along with Pence’s and others of great sanctimony at the time, will be shown right next to these present day clips. Look for night and day opinions on what a high crime is, what abuse of power is, and heaven forfend, what you should do with a president who is caught lying. Hypocrisy is the coin of the realm if you’re a Republican.
