Lindsey Graham Stands Up for Trump: Impeachment Inquiry a ‘Lynching in Every Sense'
Erin Scott/ReutersPresident Donald Trump's shocking comparison of the ongoing impeachment inquiry against him to a "lynching" provoked widespread condemnation from congressional members of both parties on Monday—with the notable exception of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who told reporters on Capitol Hill that the investigation into Trump is "a lynching in every sense."

"I think it's pretty well accurate—this is a shame, this is a joke," Graham told a gaggle of reporters on Monday morning. "This is a lynching in every sense. This is un-American. I've never seen a situation in my lifetime as a lawyer where somebody's accused of a major misconduct who cannot confront the accusers, call witnesses on their behalf, and have the discussion in the light of day so the public can judge."

Trump's Monday morning tweet—in which he encouraged Republicans to "remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching"—is the latest escalation in the president's increasingly hyperbolic reactions to the impeachment inquiry, which he has called a "coup," a "scam" and, of course, a "witch hunt."

Stephen Colbert Mocks Mitt Romney's ‘Embarrassing' Secret Twitter Account
CBSBack in 2012, when he was still playing "Stephen Colbert" on The Colbert Report and Donald Trump was still just a reality-show host, Stephen Colbert spent an inordinate amount of time making fun of Mitt Romney. So it felt like old times Monday night when the Late Show host spent a few minutes mocking the Utah senator's newly-revealed secret Twitter account.

The revelation came from a profile in The Atlantic titled "The Liberation of Mitt Romney," "which I know sounds like a mid-seventies erotic novella," Colbert joked, "but it's actually about Romney's role as a critic of Donald Trump."

Romney wouldn't tell reporter McKay Coppins the name of the account, but did give some hints, like the number of people he follows, including a few late-night comedians. "What's his name, the big redhead from Boston?" Romney said.
