After hours of evidence presented by the House Impeachment managers in the Senate trial against President Donald Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) strayed even further into the abyss of fanaticism as he defended the President to reporters.
Graham, a Trump critic turned ally, didn't attempt to refute any of the myriad evidence laid out by Democrats, but instead dismissed the claims that Trump did anything wrong when he withheld congressionally approved aid from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into his political rival.
"All I can tell you is that from the President's point of view, he did nothing wrong in his mind."
Watch Graham's defense of Trump below:
Graham then defended the President for asking a foreign power to investigate American citizens, claiming former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter shouldn't be above scrutiny.
He did not address why the solicitation of a foreign power to investigate them was a better route to the truth than using the numerous investigative entities at the President's disposal, nor did he address how any supposed wrongdoing from the Bidens would exonerate Trump's actions.
Graham's claim that Trump did nothing wrong "in his mind" was a further slip into the rejection of extensive evidence that, in reality, Trump certainly did something wrong.
People were sure to let Graham know.
