Lindsey Graham is now Trump's attack dog: Sooner or later, the blowback will come

Jeanine Pirro and Lindsey Graham--February 10, 2020 2:30PM (UTC)Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told Fox News' Brian Kilmeade last week "When I go to meet God at the pearly gates, I don't think he's going to ask me, 'Why didn't you convict Trump?'"
