Lindsey Graham has become one of Trump’s best defenders over the last couple of years. During a recent appearance on FOX News, he claimed that the Democrats in the House are trying to destroy Trump’s presidency.
Graham is correct. Some of them believe that’s the main reason they were voted into office.

Sen Graham: House Dems trying to ‘destroy’ Trump presidency
House Democrats are looking to “destroy” the Trump presidency with a continued effort to revive the Mueller report, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
“There is nothing going on in the House about protecting the 2020 election, they are trying to nullify the 2016 election. Mueller has spoken, he found no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians after two years, 25 million dollars, 19 lawyers and 40 FBI agents,” Graham told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Monday.
“He decided not to bring any charges regarding the obstruction of justice because there is no crime here. The bottom line is what the House is doing is politically motivated, trying to destroy the Trump presidency.”…
Graham assured MacCallum that the Senate was done with the Mueller report.
“I can assure you that we are done with the Mueller investigation in the Senate. They can talk to John Dean until the cows come home, we are not doing anything in the Senate regarding the Mueller report,” Graham said.
They spend all their time going after Trump instead of working for their constituents. Yet these people actually believe they deserve a raise.

House Democrats pull legislation that would give lawmakers raise
House Democrats are pulling a spending bill that would give lawmakers a pay raise for the first time in a decade amid a backlash from swing-district freshmen.
The House is still slated to consider the rest of an appropriations package for other agencies, including the Defense and State departments, but not the section concerning legislative branch operations.
A senior Democratic aide said that consideration of legislative branch spending will remain on hold as lawmakers discuss the pay raise issue.
Close to a dozen vulnerable swing-district Democratic freshmen had submitted or co-sponsored amendments to block the pay raise, underscoring the sensitivity of the issue.
Why don’t Democrats get something done for the American people before asking for a raise.
