George Conway schools Lindsey Graham on the law after he calls whistleblower report hearsay: “pure garbage”

One of Donald Trump’s most obvious lies about the whistleblower scandal that has led to a full-blown impeachment inquiry in the Hosue of Representatives is that the accusations against him are mere “hearsay.” It is a perplexing defense given that the transcript of the phone call between Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky that the White House released to the public contains such prima facie evidence incriminating the U.S. president.

Nevertheless, the supposed insubstantial nature of the allegations against the president and their claimed insufficiency as evidence in his upcoming impeachment hearings has become a standard talking point for the Trump administration and the Republican sycophants trying to slow its inevitable downfall.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — having hitched his wagon to the Trump train as one of his most unwavering loyalists — used that talking point in an early morning tweet in an attempt to sow doubt about the standard of proof that hearsay testimony can provide.

Graham’s transparently feeble argument was eviscerated by noted anti-Trump Republican barrister, George Conway, the husband of the president’s Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway. Mr. Conway took a not too subtle dig at the South Carolina Senator’s rusty legal skills in his lengthy reply to Graham’s depiction of the mounting corroboration of the president’s Constitution-busting actions.

It’s sad that someone trusted with the power and responsibility that Senator Graham derives from his Senate seat is willing to seemingly purposefully pander to Trump’s base by spreading misinformation that will be so soon demonstrated to be the “pure garbage” that George Conway so skillfully proves it to be.

One can envision Senator Graham still mumbling to himself about hearsay as witness after witness appears before the House committees investigating the Ukraine scandal and brings Trump’s criminal conduct further into the public light.

The consequences of such loyalty to a doomed administration leads one to question more than just Senator Graham’s legal knowledge but to wonder whether he has an exit strategy ready when the Trump administration and its enablers are held accountable for their crimes and coverups.
