Just to make sure that everyone knows that the impeachment fix is in on the Senate side, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham spent Saturday golfing with Trump.
Ater Graham called Trump’s own released Ukraine documents hearsay:
In America you can’t even get a parking ticket based on hearsay testimony.
But you can impeach a president?
I certainly hope not.

The Senate Judiciary Committee Chair spent Saturday playing golf with the man whose impeachment trial he will play a key part in.
According to the White House Pool Report, as provided to PoliticusUSA, “Today, President Donald J. Trump is playing golf with South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and two legendary professional golfers, Gary Player and Annika Sörenstam.”
As PoltiicusUSA’s Sarah Jones tweeted:
Wondering where Sen Lindsey Graham is today, as he tweets pathetic, untrue defense for Trump?

Republicans aren’t even trying to put forward a pretext that any impeachment trial would be fair.
If there would happen to be an impeachment trial, and the odds are good that Majority Leader McConnell will ignore any House impeachment of Trump, it will be a sham.
Republicans are playing a dangerous game that could cost them the Senate. Sacrificing the Senate to protect their criminal president could result in a loss of both the Senate and the White House in 2020.
