Schumer will look like the idiot he is. Sen. Lindsey Graham, who earlier this month had criticized President Donald Trump over his demands to overturn his election loss, expressed more support for him on Sunday – though he did warn the president not to pardon insurrectionists who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. "To seek a pardon of these people would be wrong ... I think it would destroy President Trump, and I hope we don't go down that road," Graham said on the Fox News program "Sunday Morning Futures." Overall, Graham was more positive when he was asked if he had a message for Trump.
"Mr. President, your policies will stand the test of time," he said on the Fox program that Trump is known to watch. "You're the most important figure in the Republican Party. You can shape the direction of the party, keep your movement alive." Sen.
