WATCH: Lindsey Graham Says ‘If Sessions Is Fired, There Will Be Holy Hell to Pay’

Your move, Senator.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is one of President Donald Trump’s most tenacious allies. He starkly defended the president’s Supreme Court nominee (now Justice) Brett Kavanaugh during Kavanaugh’s nomination hearings, calling them a “sham” in a nearly five minute diatribe. Most recently, he supported the President’s move of eliminating birth right citizenship, calling it an “absurd policy,” and vowing to introduce legislation against it.

But it wasn’t always this way, and now that’s coming back to haunt Graham.

This week, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at President Trump’s request, video of Graham discussing the then-hypothetical situation of Sessions being fired resurfaced.

In the video, Graham says:

“If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay. Any effort to go after Mueller would be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency.”

Twitter’s response? Holy hell.

But many think they know the motivation behind Graham’s sudden kowtowing to the president, and suddenly this all makes sense.
