    What if linsey's ignorance isn't willful. I'm just asking because he really seems lost since McCain past. Aimlessly wondering around the Senate. Talking on the phone with Russian talk radio hosts. But dialing people while saying incriminating information. And at times screaming like a little girl followed by tears.

    Lindsay Graham is publicly saying he is going to be , "willfully ignorant"! Thats saying, " I know the truth, but I will not admit it", Which is the same as lying. Grow up Senator, reguardless of your party, we are talking about the Country and the Constitution and you are failing both.

    The us has no business giving away weapons too the Ukraine if Texas succeded from the union and Russia gave weapons for free to texas rebels the us would declare it an act of war. If Ukrainian people wish to rebel so much against the ussr they buy weapons and put there hard earned money too that endeavor then that is a different story but America is foamenting civil war in Russia where there would be none by taking American hard earned tax dollars spending it on weapons and sending it to Ukraine to foament civil war in Russia and its against most Americans wishes if yhey knew what waa actually going on theyed imprison these criminal senators Congressmen and presidents foamenting endless war in these asian nations. Its only a matter of time before all these criminal illegal wars they foament comes to your and my backyard because of what these lying criminal politicians that act as though they are above the law bites everyone in rhe ass...

    Not going to read the transcripts? Does he get a tooth ache and if he doesn’t acknowledge it the ache will go away? Trump has something on this guy and that will destroy him much less fix his tooth.

    The point is that impeachment, ultimately, is only as bad as you think it is. Impeachment does not mean the removal of Trump from the Presidency given the majority of his creatures in the Senate. It is perfectly possible that for the first time in history, an impeached President will stand for election to the Presidency in 2020. How well that plays we don't know, but it may well be that Trump has nothing whatsoever to fear from impeachment and that it makes no difference at all so long as his cult following stays loyal.

    "...a political CREEP." No, really! Even Watchmen had this, as Ozymandias' in-comic interview with Doug Roth had the man laughing over the acronym for Campaign to RE-Elect the President, CREEP! Well, that and Humanoids. Apparently, Ford got a glass of water spilled on him when it was a presidential aide's turn to be clumsy. The man was apologetic as all Hell, of course, but Ford just smiled it off and said, "It's okay, nobody's human." Veidt called Nixon's boys Humanoids ever since.
    I should add that I have been referring to the Trump Mob as the Trump Mob for similar reasons for months, well before the Quid pro Quo with Ukraine.

    Willful Ignorance is not realizing your party is NOT providing due process and constitutional rights. Oh and watching the "The Late Show with Chairman Mao". The same network that would not broadcast evidence against a serial pedophile with democrat (and Royal) connections. Democrats can sure pick 'em.

    What if a jury member decided to not listen to the evidence? they would be put in jail and a miss trial ordered. Graham will be a juror in the senate trial and refuses to view the evidence, should the same not apply to him and any other senator who does the same? What has happened to the law when these morons can disregard it at will? citizens are being jailed for missing jury duty. They are setting so many bad precedents the law will have to be rewritten. The GOP has become so corrupt they all believe the law does not apply to them, Trump has just opened our eyes to what's been carrying on for decades. Illegal wars, trickle-down economics, and Mcconnell refusing a president his SC nominee should have had the Dems screaming like the Reps do over a tan suit!

The millennials who supported Sanders in 2016 just disappeared at the polls, when it was time for them to stand up and be counted. Instead, they stayed home and whined!

    This has gotta be THE best segment of The Late Show ever posted to YT! So well written! So funny!
    However, there is still at least one writer on the show who doesn't know that murders do in fact happen in maximum security prisons, (the issue was regarding Epstein's death in jail) That writer is totally naive and lives in a disney bubble.
    But anyway, kudos to TLS for this excellently written segment!

      It can be. Coming clean about it and giving the truth goes a ways towards the judge deciding it's not worth nabbing you for it, especially if the true testimony turns out to be important in the ongoing trial.

    Jamie Harrison is running against Graham in SC. We can support him, as well as Amy McGrath running against McConnell in KY, regardless of which state we reside in. We would do well to, as the safety and well being of our People, nation and the greater good of the world depends on it.

    I just have this really, really bad feeling that Donald Trump will be acquitted by the Senate of any wrong doing what so ever. You have to remember that even though the chief justice will preside over the presidents "trial" in the Senate it really won't be a real criminal trial. Mark my words, because the Republicans control the Senate and will conduct this "trial" they will dismiss all charges against him. Get ready for the worst.
