South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has had enough.
During a Wednesday press conference, Graham blasted Democrats over the impeachment process of Donald Trump in a fiery rant that may very well go unmatched by his colleagues.
“If I was the president, I wouldn’t cooperate with these guys at all,” Graham told reporters. “I wouldn’t give them the time of day! They’re on a crusade to destroy this man and they don’t care what they destroy in the process of trying to destroy Donald Trump.”
“To my Democratic colleagues, you can say what you want about me, but I’m covering up nothing!” he stated. “I’m exposing your hatred to the point that you would destroy the institution!”
Watch the stunning rant:
The senate trial is still in the opening statements phase, where political leaders of both parties can present their opinion on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, the president commented that he’d love to attend the trial and stare at the “corrupt faces.”
“I’d love to go, wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t that be beautiful? I don’t know, I’d sort of love … sit right in the front row and stare in their corrupt faces,” Trump told reporters in Davos, Switzerland. “I’d love to do it.”
He also added that Reps. Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff are “sleazebags.”
“I watch the lies from Adam Schiff, he’ll stand, he’ll look at a microphone and he’ll talk like he’s so aggrieved, these two guys, these are major sleazebags,” he said.
