A Republican group is launching a new ad targeting Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) after the House on Wednesday voted in favor of impeaching President Trump.
The new Republicans for the Rule of Law ad quotes Graham pushing the Senate to allow witness testimony during the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton, the group announced Wednesday.
Once upon a time Lindsey Graham was in favor of a fair impeachment trial, a narrator says in the 30-second ad.
It then cuts to a clip of Graham during the time of Clintons impeachment, telling reporters: In every trial that there has ever been in the Senate regarding impeachment, witnesses were called. When you have a witness telling you about what they were doing and why, its the difference between getting the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Lindsey Graham, the rules of a fair trial haven't changed, why have you?" the ad narrator continues. "Let the witnesses testify."
Graham said Wednesday that he will reject attempts to call witnesses during Trumps Senate trial, and on Sunday he said he is ready to vote and doesnt need to hear from any witnesses.
The ad will run on digital platforms and air as a commercial during Foxs Fox and Friends and MSNBCs Morning Joe on Friday in D.C. It will also run on Morning Joe in New York City.

“Republicans for the Rule of Law” - Who dat?
Another Soros front?
Mitt Romney and the ghost of John McCain?
Does not sound like “Republican” group to me.
When you stand for nothing, you are vulnerable to anything. But this one is out of graham’s hands. Executive Privilege still stands in a senate trial. Sure they can go to court, but I think you need to have real evidence to breach EP. And hearsay is not it.
Looks like a bunch of old, white guys that most liberals want extinct.

Pence friend explains why he’s part of an anti-Trump group criticizing the vice president
Maureen Groppe, Indianapolis StarPublished 1:15 p.m. ET Sept. 19, 2019 | Updated 1:31 p.m
anti-Trump group that Rusthoven is part of, Republicans for the Rule of law, accuses Pence of hypocrisy for not objecting to foreign governments spending at Trump hotels after having criticized the Clinton Foundation for accepting donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
Pence’s top aide dismissed the ad and the group, saying the only constituency for the “Never Trump” Republicans is the liberal media.
“Without free promotion by anti-Trump press, no one would even know they still existed,” chief of staff Marc Short said about the ad that aired Thursday on MSNBC and is running in social media.
Republicans for the Rule of Law is directed by Bill Kristol, a conservative commentator who worked for Vice President Dan Quayle but is a vocal critic of Trump and Pence.
He turns 92 next month. He’s obviously senile if a part of this group of coup plotter fanatics.
Bill Kristol pulls the strings
When was Kristol ever a Conservative ? 30 years ago ? He mouths every Demonrat talking point out of the book. A jealous, hatemongering nutjob.
Republicans for the Rule of Law is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit and a project of Defending Democracy Together.
Kristol was never conservative, at best he was a neocon Bush League Republican.
The Shill should be more up front about the bias of these “Republicans” who are concern trolling. They don’t care what the issue is, they want Trump and Pence out of office.
