Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) faced scorn from Twitter on Monday after he whined that the impeachment process is a “sham.”
In a tweet defending President Donald Trump, Graham called impeachment a “joke.”
I think what's going on in the House of Representatives on impeachment is a joke.
It's a one-sided process that lacks due process.
We're not going to allow Democrats in the House to destroy President @realDonaldTrump in a sham process.

That's right. At this rate, Donald is destroying himself. He doesn't need democrat's assistance.

Sen. Graham, lack of due process is refusal to read the mounting evidence and bring the truth to light. That's the real sham.

It takes a special kind of stupid to claim the President is above the law, and at the same time complain about the President not getting due process. https://t.co/RCUC2sXEPT

Man who refuses to watch hearings or read transcripts has uneducated opinion. Tune in to Hannity for more!

I wonder what John McCain would say to you right now. This is who you are defending. pic.twitter.com/kCgLsu28wa

If it’s one-sided, it’s the fault of the President from preventing so many Executive branch employees from testifying, refusing to release documents.

Lie to the American people much?

What’s happened to you is a real shame. Save our democracy.

There you go complaining about the process because you can't refute the mountain of testimony from a slew of credible witnesses. Get better Republicans to question these witnesses. For the love of God, pull Nunes out. He lacks all credibility.

I see you tagged 45. Of course you did.

You hypocrite. The Administration refuses to allow its representatives to testify, and you know impeachment inquiry is like a grand jury--there is no due process concern until a trial. Other than partisanship, what is motivating the GOP lockstep obstruction?

Well then, by all means, let’s get a Bolton, Mulvany, and El Trumpo himself on the stand!

Man, you have sold your soul to the devil.

The process is open; both parties are part of it; WH has been invited to present exculpatory evidence, instead has engaged in criminal witness intimidation. It is a crime to smear or defame investigators and witnesses.

One day, you’ll look back on all this and say “I made a series of extremely bad decisions:”

Lindsey, I'm from SC. There's definitely some smoke and we need to find out if there's a fire, don't be a coward. It's an inquiry & investigation. Plz stop saying it's a sham. You aren't representing our entire state, just a few people that are putting president above country.

What about it is a sham? Specifically. They’ve followed every single rule to the letter.
