We realize what ‘The Hill’ was trying to do here, and that was paint Lindsey Graham as some sort of compliant Republican bootlicker for saying what Trump did by ‘investigating a political rival’ was ok.
Except it was ok.
At the time Biden wasn’t even a political rival …
Question: "Is it ever okay for an American president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival?"

Why wouldn’t a president be allowed to investigate corruption of the former administration? When you think about it, this whole thing is … well, insane. Annoying, neverending, shameless, and insane.
Tim Pool brought up an excellent point:
The replies to this clip from Democrats are insane
Lindsey Graham says Hunter Biden was involved in a corrupt company so yea its ok to talk about this stuff
Democrats are outraged that someone would investigate corruption? I don't get it https://t.co/jpLvhfsfNf

They’re not upset that Trump investigated corruption, they’re upset because he investigated corruption of one of their OWN.
If this was about Ted Cruz or some other Republican you’d never hear a peep about it.
Is it ever okay for a corrupt official to run for office so he/she can avoid an investigation and accountability?

We see what he did here.
They’ve (both sides) been doing this grift for 60 to 70 years.
To them it’s normal.

Media's gonna gaslight. It's legit their only function at this point. If they aren't gaslighting they are smearing and if they aren't smearing they are pushing propaganda. These are the functions of media. Nobody believes they are unbiased truth tellers anymore.

Media have made a career out of gaslighting.
They are dishonest. It’s really that simple

Why complicate it, right?

Democrats: being a political rival is exculpatory evidence!

Winning an election is impeachment-worthy!
