- Lindsey Graham threatened to use the 25th amendment on 45th President Donald Trump
- He wanted the GOP to move on from Trump
Lindsey Graham has proven time and time again that he is more of a RINO than a strong conservative.
A new book claims that on January 6th Lindsey Graham threatened 45th President Donald Trump with the 25th amendment if he did not condemn the Jan 6th rioters as strongly as Graham wanted.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) threatened White House officials that he would call for Donald Trump’s removal from office if he did not condemn his supporters storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6, a new book excerpt revealed on Wednesday.
Graham, among the ex-president’s staunchest supporters in Congress, reportedly even hoped the insurrection would be a catalyst for the GOP breaking free of Trump.
He expressed that then-President-elect Joe Biden was the right person to lead the country amid the political tumult following the 2020 presidential election, according to the forthcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future, by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns.
If Trump did not condemn the Capitol rioters on stronger terms, an ‘enraged’ Graham told White House counsel Pat Cipollone on January 6, then ‘we’ll be asking you for the 25th Amendment,’ reports from the book obtained by Axios read.
Why hasn’t Lindsey Graham asked for the 25th amendment to remove Joe Biden?
