This is your big chance @LindseyGrahamSC – you’ve got more ammunition than you’ll ever need! It’s time to finally do something, or go away and let someone else take care of business!

Mollie Hemingway makes a good point:
Reporters like to describe political pressure from voters as "pressure from Trump." A convenient way to ignore conservative voters & avoid political realities, such as the voter demand for holding people who spied and leaked against Trump campaign and administration accountable. https://t.co/XI9UJVg7dl
