There's a defense that some Republicans, notably Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), are taking out for a test spin right now. It goes like this:

"What I can tell you about the Trump policy toward Ukraine: It was incoherent, it depends on who you talk to, they seem to be incapable of forming a quid pro quo, so no I find the whole process to be a sham and I'm not going to legitimize it."

In other words: This might be a crime in the hands of some other administration, but not in the hands of the Trump administration, because they are so incompetent they are incapable of pulling it off. Needless to say, that doesn't quite square with reality—plenty of folks involved here were 100% convinced that an act of extortion was underway. Schiff might also get a lawyer or two to take the stand and point out that incompetence is not actually a valid defense. It's still attempted murder, even if the perpetrator forgets to load the gun.


Lindsey Olin Graham is an American politician, affiliated to the Republican Party, who serves as the senior United States Senator from South Carolina, a seat he has held since 2003. Since 2019, he has been the Chair of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) could be in a little bit of danger, thanks primarily to his flip-floppery. There is another piece of evidence, namely the formation of an anti-Graham super PAC called "Lindsey Must Go."

The group says they've already raised $1 million, and that they think that another $4 million will be no sweat. Given that Graham challenger Jaime Harrison is already leading in the money race, and that a million bucks goes a long way in the Palmetto State, that's no small thing. This does not mean that the race is actually competitive yet, but it does mean that Democratic activists smell some blood in the water. There's no "Tom Cotton Must Go" or "Jim Risch must go" super PAC.
