Opinion| Mark Sidney| I know that we were not the first to pick up on this, but for a while now we have been questioning just how trustworthy Mr. Lindsey Graham is.
Lindsey has refused to call Hunter Biden to testify before the Senate Intel Committee, which he chairs, claiming he has no jurisdiction.
Sure, Graham talks a good game, but what the hell has he done thus far?
Last year, Fox’s Maria Bartiromo, called the South Carolina Senator out, asking him “My Viewers Are Frustrated, When Can We Expect You Subpoenaing People?”
How about they Lindsey threatened to be ‘Trump’s worst nightmare‘ after Trump announced he was planning on withdrawing some of our troops from Syria.
Luckily, Senator Graham later announced that he would be turning the Chairmanship over to Senator Grassley come 2020.
Let us not forget Senator Graham’s trip to the Ukraine with John McCain and Ambassador Yovanovitch:
Or, how about this Tweet from Graham when he was a outspoken never-Trumper and buddy buddy with John McCain:
If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.

So it should not come as much of a surprise when the Gateway Pundit reports that:
‘The Democrat House Managers for the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump had senators in “agony” and “bored out of their minds” during the proceedings on Wednesday. Many senators were nodding off, walking around and even leaving the chamber for extended periods of time according to reports.
The boredom was exacerbated by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) forcing debates and votes on eleven doomed motions that dragged out Tuesday’s opening session until almost 2 a.m. EST.
But at least one Republican was impressed with Schiff’s speech.
NBC News reporter Frank Thorp V saw Lindsey Graham congratulating serial liar Adam Schiff following his 2.5 hour marathon snoozer.’

I have a feeling Senator Graham’s freedom also depends on the facts of what was going on in Ukraine with the foreign aid money and Burisma oil being kept secret.
However, this is only speculation based on Lindsey’s relationship with McCain, his trips to Ukraine with Yovanovitch and McCain and the SC Senator’s refusal to call Biden, the elder, or the younger, to testify.
I hope all will come out in the wash but I am not holding my breath …
