a sad day

Lindsey Graham is suddenly very concerned about the integrity of our institutions after SCOTUS leak

Lindsey Graham is deeply, deeply disturbed after a majority opinion draft written by Justice Samuel Alito showing the Supreme Court has voted to strike down Roe v Wade leaked this week.

The anti-LGBTQ senator took to Twitter yesterday to voice his concern about women losing their rights the leak.

“It is a sad day for the Supreme Court and a dangerous day for the Rule of Law. The radical assault on our institutions and the Constitution itself has reached a new level with the release of a draft opinion on a major issue facing the Court,” he wrote.

He followed that up with an appearance on Fox News, where he told Sean Hannity the whole thing was “despicable,” “dangerous,” and “dumb.”

“What happened in the court today was the saddest chapter in the history of the United States Supreme Court,” Graham told Hannity. “This was despicable, it’s dangerous, and it was dumb.”

“To the person who did this, if it’s a conservative you are a traitor to the cause. If it’s a liberal, you are the dumbest person in Washington because it is not going to change the midterms.”

Graham’s outrage comes just one day after a special grand jury was selected for the investigation into whether he and others tried to illegally influence the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office is specifically looking into a January 2021 phone call in which Donald Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” the votes needed for him to win the state, as well as a similar call Graham made to Raffensperger in November 2020.
