As of yesterday evening, when the second installment of former Rudy Giuliani henchman Lev Parnas’ bombshell, tell-all interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow went public, South Carolina Senator and sycophantic Trump loyalist Lindsey Graham has now joined the ever-growing list of Trump associates to be implicated in the “presidents” massive scandal by the former associate of Donald’s very own personal attorney.

So far, thanks to the explosive interview we know that, according to Parnas anyway, Graham comes in right alongside the likes of Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Attorney General Bill Barr, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), former Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Rudy Giuliani himself.

Unsurprisingly so, and much like his fellow Trump associates, Graham is rather unhappy over his recent implication. And now he’s taken to the most beloved MAGA safe space to let everyone know it.

Speaking with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Graham got himself rather fired up over Parnas’ recent revelation as well as the entire Senate impeachment trial as a whole — ultimately referring to the man that Trump once agreed to pay legal fees for and was seen in multiple videos and photographs with as a “crooked snaked” and a “rat.”

Speaking to the Fox host regarding the new treasure trove of documents produced by Parnas and recently released by House Democrats as well as the whammy of an interview with Maddow, Graham seemed to get his knickers in a bit of a twist, declaring, “The new evidence is no different than the old evidence.”

“This Parnas guy is facing indictment,” Lindsey continued. “He’s been dripping out to the House Intel Committee batches of information, crescendoing to the week we start the trial.”

“I smell a rat here,” Graham fumed. “The guy is crooked as a snake.”

Graham went on to whine about the impeachment trial as a whole, complaining that Democratic lawmakers are expecting Senate Republicans to “destroy executive privilege” by calling on former national security adviser John Bolton to deliver his testimony during the trial.

Here’s the thing — Lev Parnas isn’t exactly what anyone would call a “good guy.” After all, he was BFFs with the likes of Rudy Giuliani and he certainly wasn’t unfriendly with Donald Trump nor impartial to the entire scandal, until he got caught anyway.

However, thus far, what he’s saying has appeared to be true. Pretty much all of it. Down to Trump administration officials and even the president himself who attempted to act as though they’ve never met him, only to be met by a Twitter feed full of their photograph right alongside the former Rudy associate.

Is Parnas crooked? Yeah, he is. Does Lindsey Fucking Graham have so much as a centimeter of room to talk? I think the fuck not.

Maybe he is a snake. Maybe he is a rat. Maybe the only reason Parnas is doing this is to hopefully strike up a deal. But at least he’s telling the truth. And that’s more than Lindsey Graham or anyone else in that fucked up administration can say at this point.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
