"Let me tell your viewers: The ‘not guilty’ vote is growing after today"

“I hope the defense team is watching your show,” he said. “But let me tell your viewers: The ‘not guilty’ vote is growing after today. I think most Republicans found the presentation by the House managers offensive and absurd. We all know what happened at the Capitol was terrible. I hope everybody involved that broke into the Capitol goes to jail. But I don’t remember any of the House managers saying a damn thing when they were trying to break into my house and going after Susan Collins and spitting on all of us.”

“If this is a problem for a politician to give the speech that President Trump did, well, then Kamala Harris has a real problem because she actively engaged in bailing out rioters,” Graham continued. “And here is what I would suggest. If you are a politician trying to raise bail for people accused of rioting, you are inciting more riots. But here’s something that nobody talked about that is important: If there was preplanning, there was no incitement. Do you agree with that? So, OK … the managers have got this cockamamie idea absurd theory that Donald Trump was monitoring the Proud Boys’ website and other far-right websites, and that he and Dan Scavino knew this was going to happen, and they encouraged it.”
