“Not Guilty” Vote is GROWING, According to Lindsey Graham


Forget what the media is telling you.

We all know that they’re incredibly biased.

Instead, listen to people who are actually involved with the sham impeachment process.

People on the ground who actually have inside information.

One such person is Lindsey Graham.

After witnessing the train wreck of a case made by the prosecution, Graham is confident that the “Not Guilty” vote is growing.

Graham didn’t name names.

But it is clear that Republicans are seeing through this charade.

Graham made the comments last night on Hannity.

Democrats played new footage of the Capitol Hill riot.

However, it was clear that the footage was manipulated and dishonest.

Newsweek has more details on Graham’s comments:

Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham on Wednesday night said that the number of “not guilty” votes in the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is “growing.” Graham’s comments came hours after Democratic House impeachment managers played graphic, never-before-seen video footage from the violent riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

“The ‘Not Guilty’ vote is growing after today,” Graham wrote in a Wednesday evening tweet. “I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House Managers offensive and absurd.”

“We all know what happened in the Capitol was terrible. I hope everybody involved that broke into the Capitol goes to jail,” the senator added in an appearance on Fox News’ Hannity.

During the show, Graham and host Sean Hannity argued that past statements made by Democratic politicians in support of racial justice and Black Lives Matter protestors during the 2020 nationwide uprisings against police brutality were themselves incitements to riot, the very thing Democrats have accused Trump of.

Graham called Democrats hypocrites for not speaking out against activists who demonstrated outside of his home in September 2020, and outside of Susan Collins’ home in December 2017 and October 2018, comparing their actions to that of the insurrectionists.

Graham also told Hannity that he remained unconvinced by arguments made by House Managers of Trump’s ties to the Proud Boys, a self-described “male chauvinist” group that the FBI has described as “an extremist right-wing group.” Trump infamously told the group to “stand back and stand by” during a 2020 presidential debate in September when asked to denounce white supremacy.

The biggest fear on both sides is that impeachment will backfire.

For Democrats…

Instead of helping Americans suffering from the pandemic, they are focusing on a political witch hunt.

Will they pay the political price?

And for Republicans, President Trump remains incredibly popular with the base.

Voting to impeach him would not only be unconstitutional, it would also be hugely unpopular.

Of course, some mainstream news outlets are claiming that Lindsey Graham is wrong.

But honestly…

What else is new?

Here’s how CNN is covering Graham’s take:

Minutes after the second day of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial concluded Wednesday night, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted this:

“The ‘Not Guilty’ vote is growing after today. I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House Managers offensive and absurd.”


What part, exactly, was offensive and absurd? The 13-minute video that, in remarkable detail, laid out how Trump’s speech was received by the thousands who attended the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally and then violently overran the US Capitol? The months of knowing lies from Trump that convinced his supporters that the election had been stolen? The harrowing footage that showed just how close the rioters came to finding then-Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, among others? The gallows that these rioters had set up in front of the Capitol?

If Graham’s conclusion was that the House impeachment managers’ case was “offensive” and “absurd,” well, he was one of the only ones.

“I’m angry, I’m disturbed,” Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski told CNN. “The evidence that has been presented is pretty damning.” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, asked whether he was shaken by the footage of the riot shown Wednesday, responded: “Who wouldn’t be?”

Now there is obviously a difference between being disturbed by what happened at the Capitol on January 6 and being willing to vote to convict Trump for his role in inciting that melee. Johnson, for example, is virtually certain to vote to acquit Trump — no matter how much he was affected by the impeachment managers’ presentations.

But that’s not what Graham is talking about in his tweet. He specifically says that the managers’ presentation is moving votes away from convicting Trump and toward acquitting him. That what had been presented so far makes more Republican senators likely to vote with the former President in the final reckoning.

As usual, it looks like mainstream reporters are only seeing what they want to see.

The reality is that President Trump remains highly popular.

It’s it is extremely unlikely that the Senate will vote to convict Trump, especially considering the unconstitutionality of this sham trial.
