Numerous Republican lawmakers who railed against then-candidate Donald Trump became his most loyal subjects after he ascended to the Presidency in an upset victory.

Few, however, have taken a more radical ideological shift than Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who said during the campaign that Donald Trump would corrupt the soul of the United States. He's now, famously, one of Trump's most devoted servants—especially throughout the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The White House announced on Tuesday that it will not comply with requests for information from the three House committees overseeing the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The news came shortly after Trump instructed European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland from testifying before the committees and continues a pattern of resistance to oversight long established by the White House even before the impeachment inquiry began.

Joining the President's outside counsel will be former Republican South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) routinely defends President Donald Trump's administration, even for the most abhorrent of actions. This is despite vocal opposition to Trump during the 2016 campaign, which seemed to evaporate once Trump ascended to the Oval Office.
