The Associated Press reports:
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, a top ally of President Donald Trump, is introducing a resolution condemning the Democratic-controlled House for pursuing a “closed door, illegitimate impeachment inquiry.”
Graham announced the move Thursday and says the Senate’s top Republican, Mitch McConnell, is a co-sponsor. Graham plans an afternoon news conference.
The nonbinding resolution gives Senate Republicans a chance to show support for Trump at a moment when Trump is urging his GOP allies to get tougher and fight harder for him as the House impeachment probe gathers momentum.
Graham is also hitting back at Susan Rice, who yesterday called him a “piece of shit.”
Susan Rice was a walking, talking national security disaster.
Her “Greatest Hits”:
➡️Iran Nuclear Deal
➡️Iraq Withdrawal/Creation of ISIS
➡️Syria Red Line
If she agreed with me, I would wonder what I did wrong! https://t.co/5Tu3V5Vckq
