LAST MONTH: There was no quid pro quo, and you won’t find any.
TODAY: There is quid pro quo, and what about it.

Just over a month ago, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said “If you’re looking for a circumstance where the President of the United States was threatening the Ukraine with cutting off aid unless they investigated his political opponent, you’d be very disappointed. That does not exist.” Today after the transcript of the revised testimony from Sondland came out, Graham said “I’ve written the whole process off … I think this is a bunch of BS.”

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham also said today that it was unclear to him whether it would be an impeachable offense if President Trump demanded a quid pro quo from Ukraine’s president.
