Chris Wallace Owns Lindsey Graham With Clip Of Him Lashing Clinton On Ignored Subpoenas

POLITICS 05/26/2019 08:18 pm ET

“You’re becoming the judge and jury,” complained Graham, who said in the late ‘90s that ignoring a congressional subpoena was an impeachable offense.

Fox News host Chris Wallace confronted Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday with the lawmaker’s own words captured on video lashing the president for ignoring a congressional subpoena. But he was talking about Bill Clinton — not Donald Trump.

Graham also insisted at the time that ignoring a subpoena was an impeachable offense.

Wallace told Graham on Sunday: “You call all of what’s going on here in Washington a political circus, but you took a different view back when you were leading the impeachment effort against Bill Clinton back in the late ’90s. At that time you said that any president — and you talk specifically about Clinton and Richard Nixon — who defied Congress when it came to subpoenas was in danger of impeachment.”

In the 1998 clip, Graham angrily fumed in comments directed at Clinton: “You’re becoming the judge and jury. It is not your job to tell us what we need. It is your job to comply with things we need to provide oversight over you.”

At the time, Graham was a member of the House of Representatives and was leading the impeachment effort against Clinton.

Wallace piped up: “Question: Why is it an impeachable offense for Clinton or Nixon back then to ignore congressional subpoenas, but it’s OK for President Trump to do now?”

2. Lindsey's leg? Doubt it, Chris doesn't seem "manly" enough for him. My guess is

"Lindsey" requires a real man...

5. I'm not sure that

asking a setup question then being given a direct well defined answer that shut down the question is considered ownage. Perhaps you don't like his answer, but that doesn't make his answer invalid.

8. Well, the republicans actually did impeach Clinton, and nowhere among the charges was

anything about ignoring congressional subpoenas, so it appears that even the republicans at the time didn't agree with him.

The democrats (all but 5) at the time didn't think that anything he was charged with (false statements, witness tampering, etc...) was an impeachable offense.
